Where to stay?

My family (husband, 2 daughters - ages 4 and 2, and me) are coming for the week starting July 16th. We have been looking at many houses to rent but are feeling a bit overwhelmed. I think we want to stay in Corolla or Duck and spend in the low $2000's or less. We would like to be close to the beach and maybe have access to a pool. Anybody have any recommendations for a house?

1. Re: Where to stay?

You are going to have a hard time since July is the peak month and 98% of the homes here will be booked solid. Most have already been reserved and those close to the beach, with pool, and cheap are going to be long gone. Start visiting the rental company websites and search the dates you want to see if anything is available. Don't worry too much about where you are, there is 100 miles of beach here and lots to do in most places and you can make a short drive to those places you want to visit.

Brindley Beach Vacations has several listings available that week. They are in Corolla, some in Corolla Light which has a community pool. All are walkable to the beach. I searched for $2500 or less.

Well, it isn't as bad as you were informed. There's still places available and I only checked one rental agency.

Here's one that meets your specs . . .


A few more with pool, but little farther from the beach, so little more walking, but not bad really . . .



Perfect spots and pretty close, but no pool -
