Top Floor: Togetherness, with a View
“The Perfect Storm” brings families together, starting at the top.
Great Room & Sitting Area
On the top floor, the great room accommodates your entire party with ample seating and a half bath. Kick back in front of the gas fireplace, watch your favorite TV show or cheer on your team in the big game. Looking for a little R&R? The adjacent sitting area is perfect for curling up with a good book next to a timeless spiral staircase.
Gourmet Kitchen & Fine Dining
Discover your inner chef in the gourmet kitchen, fully equipped with a state-of-the-art gas cooktop and dual ovens, commercial hood, built-in refrigerator, microwave, toaster, coffee pot and other small appliances – plus plenty of counterspace and all the utensils, silverware and dinnerware you need to serve parties large or small.
Share your culinary masterpieces at the kitchen bar or host a fine feast on the 16-seat dining table. With an open floor plan and candelabra chandeliers, the dining area offers an exquisite yet lively ambiance that promotes sharing, laughter and love.
It is ideal for getting groceries and luggage from the ground floor to the third floor.
3 Upper Decks
Sip your morning coffee over sunrise or enjoy a cocktail at sunset on three top floor decks boasting spectacular OBX views: a sun deck, a covered deck and a screened porch outfitted with stylish wicker furniture.
Retire at the top in the roomy yet intimate master bedroom that includes deck access and a private bathroom with dual sinks, bathtub and glass-doored walk-in shower. Mix your favorite nightcap at the wet bar and settle in for a toasty night in front of the gas fireplace.
Middle Floor: Sweet Slumber
Drift into sweet slumber on a middle floor that’s dedicated to sleeping quarters with eight master bedrooms, each with its own private bathroom. Bedrooms include all the thoughtful conveniences you’d expect at home – dressers, nightstands and lamps – and feature nautical décor that brings the beach indoors.
View charming vistas morning and night with direct access from bedrooms to the wraparound deck, which offers a shaded retreat overlooking the pool. The elevator also makes a stop on the middle floor for ease and accessibility – no need to carry luggage up the stairs!
Ground Floor: Your Entertainment Mecca
The ground floor is an indoor recreation center that’s a blast for kids and the young at heart! Take family movie night to an epic new level in the theater room, featuring 16 elevated auditorium seats (four with built-in cupholders), an oversized bean bag chair and a widescreen TV.
Then, showcase your skills in the game room that houses ping pong, foosball, air hockey and arcade games such as Super Chexx Bubble Hockey, NBA Gametime, Ice Ball and Arcade Legend, which includes 135 programmed video games for endless amusement.
You’ll also find high-topped bar-style tables and chairs, a half bath, and a kitchenette equipped with a sink, mini-fridge and microwave for snacks and cold drinks on-hand.
The ground floor rounds out sleeping accommodations with two master bedrooms (for a total of 11), both with private bathrooms.
Exterior Spaces: Relax and Play the OBX Way
Outside, you’ll find an outdoor oasis that everyone in your group will love. Float, splash and play in your private, heated saltwater pool featuring a swim-up bar and a wet deck. Soak up the sun on poolside chaise loungers and Adirondack chairs.
Or, take your party to the sea and walk directly from the pool area to the beach along your private walkway. When you get back, hose the sand off your feet under the outdoor showers.
Serve a seaside meal with the covered gas grilling station, perfect for burgers, hot dogs, steaks, chicken, vegetables, fish and grilled seafood.
After the sun sets, slip into the hot tub for a restorative soak while you gaze at the stars in the night sky, enjoy the refreshing, salty sea breeze and listen to the waves lap the shore nearby.

"Lots of bedrooms and great location."
"location, amenities, space were just what our group needed to have a great vacation"
"The layout worked well. Big space on the top floor for the kitchen, dining room table and hang out space. Size of house fit our family needs well."
"The Perfect Storm had everything you could ask for in OBX. . Everything about the home was wonderful. From the location right on the beach with easy stair access, GIGANTIC heated pool that never felt crowded and kept kids and adults of all ages entertained, a very large hot tub, beautiful decor throughout the home, the most amazing kitchen that I actually enjoyed cooking in, an elevator accessible from every floor, a movie theatre room that had surround sound better than in an actual movie theatre, ice machines, convenient location to everything in Corolla, and a breathtaking view from anywhere on the deck and from almost every room in the house. Best house by far I have stayed in over the past couple years. You can definitely tell the owners put their personal touch and constant upkeep in the home. Hope to stay there again soon!"
"We had a great time staying at The Perfect Storm. The location is great and pool area had plenty of seating. However, the outdoor area did need a good power wash. There was spiderwebs all over the railings, gates and lounge chairs. Might just be the time of year that we went, because saw similar things when we were in town. The oven wasn't working which was frustrating when it came to cooking every night. Also, the top floor AC condensor went on the third day and it was very hot last week. The rest of the house was cool enough though. Overall, the house was great and we had a good time. If everything noted above was fixed/cleaned, would definitely give 5-stars."
"Almost perfect but beach furniture needs replacing and table tennis needs repair."
"The house had what we needed but the AC on the top floor didn’t work properly, there weren’t any instructions for the TVs and the house wasn’t clean when we arrived."
"Perfect location, very responsive service to issues encountered. Appreciate new outdoor furniture. Seemed to be some deferred maintenance (shower from beach missing shower head and handle, pool tiles missing and in pool, and loose step on staircase). Not major items, but at this price point not expected."
"The home was gorgeous with tons of space for all of us! Great location and plenty of amenities to keep us all happy"
"We really enjoyed our time at The Perfect Storm. The kitchen was just fantastic! The pool and closeness to the beach made our stay even greater!"
