Sunnybank is an Oceanfront Majestic Compound on 3 Elevated Acres located only 2 miles into the 4 wheel drive section of the OBX in the Corolla/Carova area, 10 minutes to the Food Lion and shopping center.

Our website has hundreds of pictures of the area, our wild horses and all 3 buildings that come with your rental.

Our new Victorian Estate in the heart of Duck Village is very similar to Sunnybank and has 6 master bedrooms and can accommodate 18 guests. It has great availability if your vacation dates are already booked at Sunnybank.

If you need more bedrooms or don't have a 4 wheel drive SUV our Saltaire Mansion is the home for you!

Both our homes have elevators and a Friday to Friday rental weeks in order to save you wasted hours in the weekend traffic. The entire island (400,000+) turns over on Sat & Sun and is f...

Very clean and fresh and ready for the summer season! The natural beauty of the outer banks is here with daily visits from the horses! Loved having the chef come prepare and sit back and enjoy but getting supplies is a short drive to town. So well stocked. So family-friendly.. could not have enjoyed more!

Management response:

Thank you for choosing to stay at Sunnybank. And thanks for leaving the house so perfect. Hope you will come back soon. Karen & Mike

About the neighborhood
Sunnybank is located only 2.2 miles up the beach in the four wheel drive territory of Corolla. Yes, that means you do need a SUV 4 wheel drive or truck to drive in the 4 wheel drive area. That is why they call it the 4 wheel drive area. Some locals only have 2 wheel drive trucks but they have been driving on sand all their lives. There is nothing difficult about it as long as you let some air out of your tires. You can drive on 20 pounds of pressure all week. There is no reason to fill your air all week until you are ready to drive back home.

The local gas station/convenience store, restaurants, Whale Head Club, Corolla Light house and most of the attractions are approximately 4 to 5 miles away. We are less than 10 minutes from the Food Lion shopping complex offering unlimite...
