The Level 2 Bedroom with Duo/Tr has changed to offer 2Duos. Updated 11/11/22

Visit Corolla’s Whalehead Beach community to soak up the sunshine at “Tan Lines”! Just one lot back from the beach with nearby access to the sandy shore, this home offers ocean views from the third floor decks and family areas. In addition to easy access to the beach, you and your family will also love the 14x36 private pool, a hot tub, and comfortable accommodations provided by this 5-bedroom OBX getaway home.

When you’re not out exploring the area’s shops and attractions or enjoying the beach and pool, the top floor is where you’ll most likely be spending the majority of your time. With that in mind, the level was designed with an open floor plan to give you enough space to spread out while enjoying each other’s company. The great room is comprised of two seating areas which are easily accessible from the kitchen and dining. The kitchen is spacious and well-equipped for easy meal prep, plus offers a seated bar area for folks to hang out or enjoy breakfast or a snack. A sliding door leads you to the deck for fresh air and salty breezes. The top floor is also home to the first master bedroom with attached bath. The second master is on the mid-level along with the remaining three bedrooms, a hall bath, and den. The first floor consists of laundry and a full bath.

Hit the beach, lounge poolside, and enjoy every moment of your next Outer Banks vacation. Good times and “Tan Lines” await at this semi-oceanfront Corolla retreat!

"Great beach access. Love the large kitchen table and openness of the main floor"

"We loved Tan Lines! The house is a very short walk to the beach (we have three small children and they walked the short distance no problem). The house was big enough for everyone to have their own space or congregate in the tv room/dining room. The hot tubs was nice and clean as was the pool. The sanded volleyball court was a nice bonus. My only suggestion (not a complaint but advice for future renters) is if you like to cook, I would bring your own baking sheets, skillets, and knives. The house has cookware but it has definitely been loved. If we didn’t want to bring our dog next year, we would rent again!"

Debbie   ·  Stayed September 2022

"We had a great stay at Tan Lines! Perfect place to celebrate my 60th birthday! The house was seconds away from the beach. We had fun in the pool and hot tub as well! The house was well maintained and stocked. I will consider this house again should we plan another family gathering in the OBX!"

Denise   ·  Stayed September 2022

"The home was spacious Very well maintained. The pool area was nice and we liked that it had a nice den as well as the great room. The house was well equipped and beach chairs and pool toys in great shape... Often not the case at the end of the season. This place was a great value for the price"

Eunice   ·  Stayed May 2021

"Location is GREAT. Views from the upstairs was beautiful, every window has an ocean view. However, the yard is in need of attention and a coat of paint around the pool. Looking forward to renting with Twiddy again."

Jessica   ·  Stayed May 2021

"Great home! Had everything we needed! Clean and super on top of an issue as it arises. We arrived to find the knob for the dryer broken and it was fixed within couple hours! Spacious! Only thing I would say need improvement is tv for the bedrooms. I like to fall asleep watching tv lol but a great vacay!!!"

Ashley   ·  Stayed April 2021

"Home was great, so close to the beach access. The kitchen is HUGE but wish it was a little more stocked, definitely bring your own measuring cups/spoons. The upstairs sitting area was a great space for all of us to hang out in the evenings. Wish the third floor balcony connected to the lower levels, but that was a minor inconvenience. The view of the ocean is spectacular! Able to see so much, even with some houses in the way. Love this house, would definitely stay here again!"

Sangeeta   ·  Stayed April 2021
