Experience the grandeur of “Taj Mahal” on the Outer Banks oceanfront! Luxurious, upgraded finishes, and fresh contemporary decor create a spa-like setting sure to leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed. Delight in breathtaking views of the Atlantic. Take advantage of the convenient location in Corolla’s Whalehead Community. Experience the incredible package of indoor and outdoor amenities at your fingertips at this well-appointed home. Every need and desire of vacationing families has been considered in the construction and design, leaving you and your guests to enjoy your vacation to the full extent.

Cool off in the large 16’x45’ swimming pool or lounge in the shade of the poolside cabana with water feature. Climb to the cabana’s rooftop deck to enjoy a prime location for sunbathing. Even on rare rainy days, children and adults will find themselves spending time outdoors thanks to an under-home play area with ping pong and foosball. Spacious decks and porches surround the home on all levels, creating comfortable spaces to take in ocean breezes or enjoy drinks and meals al fresco. A private beach walkway leads you effortlessly from your doorstep to the beautiful sandy beaches for shelling or a dip in the ocean.

Step inside and let the private elevator carry you and your belongings to the top floor of the main home. Here, you’ll be greeted by spacious and open common areas including the living, dining and kitchen. Take in views of the Atlantic in one of two comfortable seating areas, which offer enough space for the group to spread out while still enjoying each others company. The large gourmet kitchen ensures preparing meals for a large party is anything but a chore. Two islands leave plenty of counter space for meal prep and also provide seating for family to gather for pre-dinner conversation. Dine as a group at the custom table surrounded by stunning ocean views. The third floor is completed by the first of eight master bedrooms with a private attached bath.

The mid-level of the main home is made up primarily of sleeping quarters. Six master bedrooms with attached baths provide their guests with comfort and privacy. In the morning, early risers can visit the mid-level coffee bar to grab a cup of joe to enjoy on the deck while watching the sky light up at sunrise. On the first level, the rec room is undoubtedly the highlight. Gather for a night of friendly competition on the 7-foot billiards table. Grab a snack or beverage from the wet bar and have a seat at the drink rail to wait for your next shot. Guests of any age will find entertainment in the various arcade games. Lastly, you’ll find a master bedroom with private bath and two bedrooms with a full hall bath.

As an added bonus, the guest house offers additional sleeping arrangements, perfect for the heads of the household or a family with young children. The top floor offers a family suite with two bedrooms and a shared bath. With easy access from the main house, the mid-level invites all guests to watch their favorite movie in the theater room.

Inside and out, this spectacular home was designed to deliver an Outer Banks vacation you’ll never forget. Experience life in luxury on the Corolla oceanfront at “Taj Mahal”!

The layout to the house is simply grand and the views are unbeatable. Nearly private beach space with minimal outside traffic. We have high hopes this house continues to meet our families needs for years to come."

"Big beautiful home! Enjoyed it with family and friend for the week. Pool and hot tub were excellent and the oceanfront location made the beach super easy to access. Our family goes every year and this was by far the best house we’ve ever stayed at."

Dina   ·  Stayed August 2022

John   ·  Stayed June 2022

"The home was better than advertised. Beautiful house can't think of an amenity that wasn't there. We had 19 people from 2-2yr olds to 2-71yr olds celebrating their 50th anniversary. The house never felt uncomfortable or crowded. The fit & finishes for such a large home were outstanding!! We are so happy that we chose this home."

Scott   ·  Stayed June 2022

"For a large house with a lot of bedrooms- this feels like a home. We have stayed at several larger houses and many feel like a small hotel- this feels like a home. The layout is great. The top floor is great for accommodating a lot of people but you can still have different areas to gather."

Brenda   ·  Stayed June 2022

"We love the Taj Mahal! It was a beautiful home, and our family of 21 fit with room to spare! We had a couple minor issues that were taken care of very quickly, and we were impressed with how nice and helpful everyone was! Also, the welcome gifts were awesome! (and sweet!) We appreciated them! The house was well stocked. We wished we had more towels but found out this is the norm in Outer Banks - many homes do not supply any towels or even bed sheets, so that's the way it is. But the home could not be nicer! And, we loved the location. We hope to be back. Our family rated it our best family vacation ever! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!"

Emily   ·  Stayed March 2022

"Our second stay in this lovely home was just as wonderful as the first. Lots of space for everyone in this top of the line home!!"

Tim   ·  Stayed August 2021

"What an amazing house. We've been coming to OBX for a decade and have stayed at a handful of houses. Taj Mahal is one of our favorites. The layout was great. Pool, play room all was great. Only thing we are sad about is the removal of the 52 week hold. Now it seems we will not be able to book again. SMH to repeat customers."

Barbara   ·  Stayed July 2021

"This is a gorgeous home with a great location. We have stayed here two years with the third year already reserved. Twiddy is very responsive with any issues. Our only complaint is that a couple of the King sized mattresses are too soft and lumpy. A couple of us ended up with back aches from the beds."

Frances   ·  Stayed June 2021

"Very beautiful home. All amenities are spectacular and the views...I can not say enough about the views. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to booking again. For those who are looking for a place to accommodate a large family, we had 20 adults 6 children, this is the house for you. The elevator was very nice for family members with limited mobility. Plenty of space for relaxation and not be cramped. The floor plan was very well thought out and nicely decorated. Spacious rooms and spacious bathrooms. The open floor plan of the 3rd floor was amazing!! One flaw was the garbage pick up. The bins were full on arrival so our added bags made more overflow until garbage day. However arrangements were made by Twiddy to make sure everything made it to the street in time for collection. Thank you for a FANTABULOUS stay!!!"

"Taj Mahal was absolutely beautiful! Every room was perfect and the outdoor space was equally as great. It was a great space for a large group and the view was amazing! I think the only downfall was no garbage disposal which is very difficult when large groups are eating together."
