Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fabulous time in Corolla. The house was wonderful and very spacious. It was a short walk to the beach and very convenient to shopping. I will come back and stay at the Kelly's beach house again.

One of the best houses!

  • 5 of 5

My family, including my sister's family, recently rented Glenn's Beach Retreat and we couldn't have been more pleased. From the location to the beach, house amenities, and layout of the house, it was a fabulous week. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a house rental in the Corolla area to check out this house, you will not be disappointed!

Perfect Relaxing Spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family made our first trip to the Outer Banks. Weather just got warmer as the days passed. Great place to relax in and out of the house. Very spacious and is equipped with everything you need in the kitchen and for the beach. Grocery store within walking distance down a couple stairways on the beach and through a neighborhood. Our pup loved it too! We will return someday soon :)

Great beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great place for families to enjoy the Outer Banks area. This beach house is like a "home away from home." House is well maintained and clean with a well equipped kitchen. Beautiful views. Short path walk to the beach. Great open familyroom and kitchen area for family mealtime and game playing. Decks great for sunning and enjoying the nightly deer sightings. Close to grocery stores and shopping. Owner professional and friendly.

Kelly's Beach Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The experience at Kelly's Beach Retreat exceeded my expectations. The owner is easy to work with no hastle and stress free. The house is centrally located to EVERYTHING, Heart of OBX. House has all ammentities, just bring your food, linens and swim suit. If you are looking for a cheap rental house that is kid friendly, clean and low stress just steps to the ocean and a few miles from 4x4 beach driving, I truly recommend Kelly's.

Just a few miles to the North, is the Corolla Light House and the Historic Hunting Lodge of the Whalehead Club where you can listen to concerts on the lawn or crab off the canal. A new nature museum is opening this Spring. Ride your SUV on the undeveloped beaches to the north or book a 4-wheel excursion to see the wild horses and Kayak on the sound. Wind surfing, parasailing and jet ski rentals are available as well as pubs and music. Right before the light house is a movie theater, shopping, putt putt, go carts and restaurants. A hour or two South is the North Carolina Aquarium, the Elizabethen Gardens, the Lost Colony of Roanoke, Jockey's Ridge dune, Oregon inlet and the Wright Brother's Memorial. At Jockey's ridge you can fly a kite or even hang glide. At Oregon inlet you can charter a boat to catch Striped Bass, marlin and tuna. There is something for everyone!
