New for 2024: A pergola and shaded gathering areas have been added to the pool deck! Updated 7/18/2023

Enjoy a restorative beach vacation at “Crab Trap”, a semi-oceanfront home with extensive decking, a private pool, and beautiful ocean views! Located just one home away from the oceanfront, the salty breeze and gorgeous views of the ocean are yours to enjoy throughout your stay. With a great selection of amenities and plenty of places to relax, there’s something for everyone at this cheerful, pet friendly vacation home.

On the top floor of the home, the open and airy great room welcomes you with architectural details that welcome you to the Outer Banks. Relax in the living area, which offers ocean views, and catch up with loved ones or watch TV. The gas fireplace is available for use during the cooler months of the year. The nearby kitchen is equipped with all that you need to prepare meals throughout your stay, just stock groceries. The breakfast bar in the kitchen with barstool seating is the perfect spot to sit and eat before heading outside for the day. Meals can be enjoyed at the large table in the dining area. A smaller table is nearby if additional seating is needed, or it can serve as the perfect place to put together a puzzle throughout the week. If you’d rather dine outside, there are seating options available on the deck, with the ocean view as your backdrop. If you’d like a break from the sun, the screened porch is right around the corner. Just up the deck stairs is the crow’s nest, where you can get an even better view of the ocean. Back inside, there is one master bedroom, which includes a private bathroom as well as access to the deck. A half bathroom completes the third floor of the home.

The middle level of the home consists of sleeping quarters. There are two master bedrooms, each with a private bathroom and one with access to the covered deck. There are two additional bedrooms on the second floor, one with access to the deck. Two full bathrooms complete the middle level of the home.

On the ground floor of the home, you will find the laundry room and a second refrigerator. Outside, your family will have fun in the sun in the pool area. Make a splash in the private pool or simply lounge around poolside. There is a poolside pergola if you’d prefer a little less sunshine. The bubbling hot tub is nearby when you’re ready to relax and unwind.

The home is centrally located in the Whalehead community, within short driving distance of restaurants, shopping, and attractions in Corolla. The community beach walkway is a short walk away from the home. Spend quality time making family vacation memories together at “Crab Trap” on the Outer Banks!

Diane   ·  Stayed June 2024

"We loved the kitchen amenities. Well stocked with appliances, utensils and glass and dish ware. And the outside higher deck was a favorite place to hang out both first thing in the morning and then again in the evening. (We called it the crow’s nest.). Bedrooms were very comfortable."

Bob   ·  Stayed June 2024

"The great room was very comfortable and we liked the dining room, game table and screened porch. Loved the crow’s nest with its great view. Deck furniture was good quality, plentiful, and comfortable. Toilet in the outdoor shower is a nice idea, the hot tub was easy to operate and big enough for a group."

Mike   ·  Stayed August 2023

"Great staff. Great communication. Wonderful location. The home was set up perfect. The owners went beyond the expectations, for a gift for our grandson. We have been coming to the Corolla area for years and always did VRBO. Never again. It will be Twiddy from now on"

Vincent   ·  Stayed July 2023

"Clean and close to shopping and restaurants"

Fred   ·  Stayed July 2023

"The home fullfilled our needs nicely. Bunk beds were very squeaky and somewhat uncomfortable and the pool was nice but seemed to lose a lot of water and may have a leak somewhere. Kitchen had all the cooking equipment that we needed and the location was ideal. May rent again in the future"
