This house was perfect for the 13 of us! A few blocks from the beach but right on the end of the street so a straight walk. The house was clean, fully stocked and handicapped accessible with an elevator and shower for my father in law. A close walk to food lion and tim buck II was also a plus! A great week for all of us!

Getaway Place was superb and in great shape. We’ve always tried to get close to the ocean to be able to watch it with our morning coffee. We enjoyed Getaway Place immensely — especially the bikes and the pool table. The location suited us fine and we hope to come back again soon!

Thanksgiving, 2009

 

Just wanted to say that it is a marvelous house and so convenient and homey. We love it here and hope we will rent again. Your personal touches and all the extras in the house made our stay wonderful. We are planning to prepare a turkey and all the fixin’s tomorrow and the well equipped kitchen will make it as handy as home! Thanks for allowing us to stay, and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families. The surf was high today and lots of surfers were testing the waves.

We just got back from a wonderful stay (Mid May, 2008) at Getaway Place. The house is beautiful. We couldn’t ask for anything else. You’ve thought of everything possible. The beach toys and bikes were an added bonus. We would definitely stay at Getaway Place again. We have been renting on the Outer Banks every year since 1995, sometimes twice a year, and Getaway Place is the best.

 

Thank you!!!

Our family has stayed at Getaway Place a number times. We have rented cottages on the Banks from Corolla to Avon many times. Without a doubt Getaway Place’s owners have thought of everything. Little signs that tell you which light is controlled by which switch. A well written book on how various equipment in the house can be operated. Beach equipment, bikes, kitchen grills for pancakes, 2 dishwashers, and on and on.

 

Without a doubt it’s one of the very best on the beach.

Great house! We had a wonderful week in spite of the 104 degree high on Wednesday. The house is very comfortable with lots of little toys and amenities to keep everyone happy.

My family and I rented Getaway Place in June 2006. We had never stayed in a beach house. This was a new experience for us and I will have to say it was the best “Family” vacation we have ever spent together. There were eight adults and three children.

 

Everything was very accessible for my brother Brian who is in a wheelchair. The Palm Tree room worked out great for him. Brian is very independent and had no problem transferring himself to the tub. He’s the type of person that could make anything work for him. He enjoyed everything that we did. He had plenty of room to get through the gate at the pool area and enjoyed the pool. My family’s main focus was finding something that was wheelchair accessible and Getaway Place worked out perfectly. We were able to use a Beach wheelchair from the Corolla Fire Dept. for the week (free of charge). He actually went to the beach area (this was a first).

 

I could go on and on about this vacation. It was truly a very memorable vacation for me and my family and we will cherish it forever. You have a beautiful home and it’s in the perfect location. Everything was very convenient. It is nice having a Food Lion & shopping center so close by!!!

One other thing, we ventured up the 4 wheel drive area on Wednesday night and we saw 12 wild horses. It was beautiful. The next group went the following night and they saw 28 wild horses. It was amazing.

 

Hopefully, we will be able to return to Getaway Place sometime in the future. We lucked into renting it this past week at a great price, It was like it was meant for us to come down!

Thanks again for letting me and my family share in your family vacation home. It was an unforgettable vacation. I’ve been vacationing in Myrtle Beach since I was a little girl; it was nice going somewhere different. At Myrtle Beach there is SO much to do that you feel like you’re on the go all the time. This vacation at Corolla was laid back and we were able to relax and enjoy being together.

 

Thanks again,
Sandra
