Overview

About the property

Great Community Amenities, 3 Br, 2 Ba, Super Clean and Updated

Come stay in our home for a wonderful vacation on the North Carolina Shore; Leave all the stress behind. Many updates and upgrades make this vacation house a true home away from home for the discerning vacationer.

The gorgeous and unique location allows quick access to both the beautiful beaches and the amazing OBX sound side activities such as kite surfing, jet-skiing, kayaking, and other still water sports. You have quick access to the best of both worlds!

Relax in the sun, drive up to see the wild horses, take part in many of the nearby water activities, visit the adventure park, take in historic Whalehead Club and the Currituck Lighthouse. Its all right here minutes from your home for the week.

Shore Leave is a beautiful, clean, well maintained home located in quiet northern community of Corolla in the beautiful community of Monteray Shores. It is one of the cleanest vacation homes you will find in the Outer Banks. The caretakers give this home a deep cleaning between every stay.

While at the house, enjoy the sun and shade decks for relaxation, Relax in the hot tub, Dine outside on the top deck and relax with the whole family each night in this well thought out and appointed home.

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, or rent from the clubhouse, to take advantage of the Monteray Shores ramp access to the Currituck Sound. The sunsets are amazing so 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 supervised 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.

About Jim S

After visiting the Outer Banks several times for vacation, we found the opportunity to own a home in the beautiful quiet Corolla area irresistible. The house is truly our 2nd home and someday (hopefully soon) will be our full time residence. So unlike many of the rental homes in the areas it is cared for and upgraded with a focus on making it more home and less rental.

We purposely limit the number of folks who can stay in our home to maintain the quality of the experience. We know it isn’t what everyone is looking for but we would rather provide a great experience for smaller families than have the house suffer the wear and tear of having large groups in and out of the house.

We make our home in NJ when not in NC and while we certainly enjoy the Jersey Shore we always find ourselves longing to get back to the beatuiful beaches of Corolla.

Jim S purchased this house in 2014

Why Jim S chose Outer Banks

The Corolla locaiton is in our view the best in the OBX. Yes of course we are biased. But the beaches, sound, entertainment options and restaurants are as good or better than anything you find on the east coast of the US. While at the same time providing a small town feel with very little commercial development.....no high rises or large condo complexes here! Corolla has all the standard things.....mini golf, real golf, go-karts, shopping etc. But nowhere else in the Outerbanks do you get the historic Whalehead Club, the Currituck Lighthouse.....and of course the star of the show is the Wild Horses! A drive or tour to the 4WD area is not to be missed and a favorite of all.....we in Corolla have an experience others travel thousands of miles to see available daily.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an amazing vacation...in fact, we were talking about our next trip and how we'd all stay at Shore Leave again! :) there is obviously a lot of pride and love poured into that home!

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. Run on a state of the art treadmill while overlooking the family playing in the pool. Ask the clubhouse staff about weekly family and children's programs.

Monteray Shores also offers bicycle and kayak rentals.

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 during the summer months. They will be happy to share the local surf and weather reports as well as a few ocean safety tips.

Monteray Shores Amenities - Beautiful large pool, game room, weight room, children's activities in summer, also playground,

basketball court, tennis courts, soundfront piers, kayak & bicycle rentals, boat ramp and Internet access.

Great family vacation spot

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful visit at Shore View. It was perfect for our family with two toddlers. Easy walk to beach, pool and playground. We loved the access to nearby activities such as the lighthouse, mini golf and wild horse tours. Shore View offered a comfortable and clean layout for us to enjoy our time at home during the vacation. We loved visiting the OBX! We'll be back!

Perfect house and great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 7 including 2 grandparents and Jim, the house owner, was very friendly and accommodating. He passed along some great ideas for our trip. The house is beautiful, clean, and in a great convenient location. We made great family memories at Jim's lovely home! As for local dining we really enjoyed Uncle Ike's Sandbar and Grill for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Back Country Safari for viewing the wild horses and and we enjoyed visiting the lighthouses.

A perfect location for a wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

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!

All the creature comforts!

  • 4 of 5

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.
