Sound Side Home - Great Community Amenities, 3 Br, 2 Ba
Come stay in our home for a wonderful vacation on the North Carolina Shore; Leave all the stress behind.
Shore Leave is a beautiful, clean, well maintained home located in quiet northern community of Corolla in the beautiful community of Monteray Shores.
The distance between the ocean and the sound is approximately a quarter of a mile wide at Monteray Shores. This gorgeous and unique location allows quick access to ocean surfing and swimming as easily as sound side kite surfing, jet-skiing, kayaking, and other still water sports. You have quick access to the best of both worlds!
Enjoy the sun and shade decks for relaxation. Bike or walk to the many Monteray Shores amenities - fitness center, community pool, tennis, basketball, bike rentals, kayak rentals, restaurants, farmer's market, coffee shops, ice cream, shopping, miniature golf, go karts, movie theater etc. Its all close by.
Bring your kayaks and paddle boards to take advantage of the Monteray Shores ramp access to the Currituck Sound. Plan for a romantic glass of wine watching the sunset in the gazebo on one of the Monteray Shores piers or perhaps a cup of coffee and fun morning walk to go crabbing with the kids.
Take the kids to the club house for age appropriate activities or to hangout at the community swimming pool while you relax with that book you have been waiting to read.
A stay at Shore Leave will give you not only great opportunities for the beach vacation you dream of but also allow you to continue that exercise regimen you work so hard at or perhaps kick-start a new one with the safe community streets to walk/run/bike on, the clubhouse fitness center and the various tennis and basketball courts.

A perfect location for a wonderful vacation!
Shore Leave was the ideal spot for our OBX vacation! The owner was a true pleasure to deal with and made sure our every need was attended to. The house is stunning and is chockfull of meaningful details in both its decor and supplies. Location was great...easy walk to stores, beach, clubhouse, bay. Perfectly situated for trips to the Lighthouse, Outdoor Wildlife Center, Wild Horse tour of the Beach, Stand up Paddle boarding adventure, crabbing, historic Whalehead and more. The property is immaculate, beds comfortable and the hot tub is a dream! The house is spacious and broken up perfectly to put little ones to bed and be able to enjoy adult evening time without waking anyone! Sunsets from the gorgeous deck are a must!We would come back to this home in a heartbeat and are so grateful to the owner for making it a wonderful experience!
Best property we have ever rented!
This property was the best we have ever rented through VRBO! A++ on cleanliness, access to the beach, shopping, and the pool, wonderfully stocked kitchen, totally comfortable furniture, and the owner was readily available to answer a question at all times! Highly recommend this property to anyone looking!
All the creature comforts!
Just returned from a week at the beach. Shore Leave provided the perfect home away from home. We found the home to be exceptionally clean, well equipped, spacious, and full of creature comforts. The Monteray community enabled morning walks, and access to the sound and community pool. Jim, the property owner, was accessible and hospitable. The location is perfect. We look forward to future vacations in this lovely home.
Very nice house.
Plenty of room. Very clean. The amenities at the club house were nice to have and the rates were very reasonable. The parking lots have walkways right to the beach. The owner always got back to me quickly. We had a great time! Looking forward to next year!
The Perfect Outer Banks Vacation
Wow, what a great property. It's located in a nice quaint development with a nice pool that the community shares and only a few blocks from the ocean, the sound, restaurants and shopping.... What more can you ask for.... The house was remarkably clean, well-cared for and the hot tub was new and well maintained. The owner was great to work with and very accommodating. This was our best vacation EVER! We've been to so many places and Corolla was just AMAZING and this house topped it off.. Comfortable, Relaxing and did not disappoint. I would recommend this property to anyone considering the Outer Banks. A+++++ in our book. Thanks for the great memories :)
Perfect family get-away
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this home. The living area was great with all the windows and allowed our group of seven to hang out doing different things in the same area. We had many activities to choose from, whether beach, pool or casting nets off the dock. The clubhouse had kids activities and the staff was friendly and helpful. We had great weather; but even on the one rainy day, it was fun to stay home in the hot tub. Everything is close, including a Food Lion and various shops. We visited the light house and nature museum only 15 minutes down the road. There were other activities down the road which we ran out of time to explore like parasailing!! Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a family friendly place to vacation.
Activity and Interests
From Shore Leave you can drive, walk or ride a bicycle to the
Monteray Shores Clubhouse and the beach.
Clubhouse access is granted for owners and renters during the duration of your stay. The Clubhouse offers many amenities including a very large pool, well-maintained tennis courts, basketball, game room, socializing, dressing rooms, and a newly renovated gym.

The clubhouse rests on the Monteray Shores Soundside Park with
direct ramp and pier access for water sports in the sound.
One of many ocean access points is three short blocks from the clubhouse. There are multiple free public parking areas along the shore and we have never had an issue finding a spot.
The beach is a quick 1/2 mile walk from the house or you driver over and park at one of the many free lots no more than a mile away. You can also take a quick 5 minute walk to the closest public pier into the sounds a Monterey Shores exclusive feature.
Fabulous Currituck lifeguards are on duty at specific lifeguard stations throughout the beach. They will be happy to share the local surf and weather reports as well as a few ocean safety tips.
