Invite your closest loved ones to discover endless comforts and conveniences at "Better Than Tuition"! Located in section Q of the Ocean Sands Community, this meticulously cared for home lies just a short walk from the beach near the best shopping, dining, and attractions Corolla has to offer.

Enjoy a quick and easy stroll to the shoreline just a few lots away without crossing any busy streets. After a long day at the beach, cool off with a splash in the home’s private pool. A hot tub is provided in the gated pool area, creating the ideal setting to gaze at the stars while having a relaxing evening soak. The home’s driveway features a basketball goal, offering an opportunity for a friendly game of horse or around-the-world. There is an outdoor charcoal grill for special dinners also. In addition to all of the amenities at the home itself, you and your guests will have access to the community’s outdoor tennis courts during your stay.

On the top level of the home, you’ll be greeted by bright airy living and dining areas arranged in an open floor plan with updated flooring throughout. The chef of the family will love cooking meals for the group in the newly renovated well-stocked kitchen, which features new cabinets, countertops, light fixtures, and stainless steel appliances. A generous island provides plenty of extra counter space and additional mealtime seating. After dinner, exit the sliding door to take in ocean breezes from the sundeck featuring Trex decking. Just off of the living area lies a Queen Master Bedroom with a private deck and a beautiful, newly remodeled attached bath. The level also boasts a half bath as an added convenience for guests enjoying the common areas. On the mid-level, a second Queen Master Bedroom with attached bath provides additional privacy for adult guests. You’ll also find a Queen bedroom with semi-private bath and a Duo/Twin room, both with access to a spacious deck and porch swing. The first floor is home to the last two bedrooms - one with a Duo bed and Futon (with direct access to the pool and hot tub area) and another with two sets of bunk beds, which share a full bath in the hall.

Whether it’s a relaxing, rejuvenating vacation or a fun-filled family adventure you’re seeking, "Better Than Tuition" offers the location, comfort, and convenience to please both kids and kids-at-heart. Gather your closest friends and family for an Outer Banks getaway you won’t soon forget at this well-appointed oceanside retreat!

"Overall the house is fine. However, we found the mattress in the top-level master bedroom to be too soft to sleep comfortably on. Also, the thermostat is capped at 70F for air conditioning which made it difficult for my partner who has insomnia to sleep because the house was too warm even with the ceiling fans."

"Better Than Tuition is a wonderful home. We really enjoyed all it had to offer. The modern kitchen was a real joy to prepare meals in and the layout made both cooking and cleaning up a breeze. When doors were closed, you could have peace and quiet (even if others were still living it up), and there were plenty of spots to get comfy. The pool and hot tub areas were very nice and there is plenty of both sun and shaded areas to relax in. The best part is the proximity to the beach! We counted steps from the driveway to the first step onto the beach and most of us got 302! Such an easy walk to go back and forth at our leisure. We’ve been vacationing every year to the OBX for nearly two decades, and this is the first time we felt we would stay at the same house again next year...that says a lot!"
