Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8 Sleeps
Fabulous 3BR Condo at Section F, Ocean Sands in Corolla! Short board-walk to beach, community pool and tennis outside your door. Suitable for small families or two couples! No large groups, please. Across from Currituck Club and near Tim Buck II. Close to Wild Horse Sanctuary and OBX attractions!
Grammie's Place is a beautiful, beach-cottage style condo in the Outer Banks town of Corolla, NC - just south of the Corolla Lighthouse. Indian Summer Condos have only 2 levels with covered parking underneath. Our 3BR, end-unit condo is on the first level offering nice shade and views, and is a perfect getaway for 2 couples or small families.
To the Beach...We are just a short (125 yard) board-walk to the wide open beaches where you'll relax in the sand and get plenty of board and body surf action. Keep an eye out for dolphins and pelicans, our frequent beach visitors! Perfect for families, our beach is next to one of the few undeveloped parcels of oceanfront remaining in the area. Ocean Sands lifeguards are on duty during the high season for your safety.
Inside our home...Immaculately maintained and designed for your comfort with plenty of room for dining and games. We offer secure WiFi Internet access, Cable TV/DVD in living room and master bedrooms, direct connect to your Netflix or Amazon Prime movie subscription, along with books, DVDs, puzzles, board games and more. Baby on board? A Pack and Play is provided for your use.
Our guests also have free access to an exterior storage area where beach toys, Boogie boards, umbrella, and chairs are available for your use and enjoyment.
From the rocking chairs and picnic table on our comfortable deck you can check out our community pool with expansive decks, lounge chairs and umbrella topped tables. Bring your rackets and enjoy tennis in fenced courts just outside our door.
While you'll feel off the beaten path, you can shop for groceries at Harris Teeter just across the highway, or walk over for custom made Duck Donuts. Shopping and great restaurants just down the road at Tim Buck II or Corolla Village.
If you are new to the Outer Banks we hope you'll fall in love with the area just as we did when we first visited in the late 1970s.... Back when you stopped at the Wee Winks in Duck for milk and eggs, and passed through the guard gate entrance to Ocean Sands and the Corolla/Carova beaches....Over the years we've celebrated graduations, weddings and the arrival of nine grandchildren, dogs and grand-dogs who have grown up on these beaches.
Again, thank you for considering Grammie's Place for your next OBX vacation.
About the Owner
Retired teacher and spouse of Naval officer, originally from New York, but 30+ years in Northern Virginia. I have five children and 9 grandchildren who named "Grammie's Place."
This is a very lovely beach home. From the great carport with parking for 2/3 cars, the convenience to shopping and attractions, the homey touches including a fully furnished kitchen, spacious bedrooms and bathrooms, the privacy of an end unit, and more, this place was fantastic. The owner was pleasant to work with, and she had LOTS of informations and coupon books on local attractions. The rates were reasonable and the atmosphere was wonderful. I would highly recommend this cleaned, well maintained, well ventilated and charming property.
good location in a great area of the outer banks
We stayed here for a week with our family of 5 and another couple and had a wonderful experience. The keys were there when we arrived and we had no problems getting settled in. The rooms were nicely furnished and the beds were all very comfortable. The living area is not the most spacious for a three bedroom, but the large couch helped! The walk to the beach is nice - a short boardwalk stroll. The vegetation is a little grown up around the board walk and my kids had a couple encounters with sticker bushes just walking down the walkway. It is certainly not the owners fault, but a call to the neighborhood association to request some landscape maintenance is recommended. This section of beach was not very crowded and there's a lifeguard nearby. The community pool is right inside the complex and very close but not so close you hear any noise from it. The pool was so nice for our kids (ages 6,4,4) as almost 1/2 the length of the pool was 3'6" which gave them a very large area in which to play. The pool was not very crowded either. I was disappointed to find out there is no longer a hot tub by the pool as advertised. The location in Corolla is excellent as it is close driving distance to Harris Teeter/Duck Donuts (YUM!), mini golf, go carts, the lighthouse - overall a great stay and a lovely home. Thanks!
We were a party of two couples over 65+. Stayed during early September. Wonderful accomodations. Felt like home. Was funrnished with everything in the kitchen. Very neat and clean. Experienced a need for washing machine repair. Property manager very attentive to our need and repair man came at our convenience. Fixed same day. Pool was beautiful. Ocean was only 1 block from condo easy walk. Beach chairs were furnished and the beach was empty. Seemed like our own beach front. Weather was high 70's and low 80's. Fantastic week. Was close to grocery & eateries etc, food was always excellent, even the deli fish places. NOt very congested this time of year with tourist. That was lovely to have no traffic congestion. WE will return. Loved the fact that much of the beach front north of our beach area was undeveloped. Owner was very accomodating and accurate in description of condo and location. Would definetly recommend to others. Vacationers from Ohio.
Perfect family vacation place; perfect location!
To stay at Grammie's Place was a last minute decision for me and my children and we found it to be the absolute best place we have stayed on the NC Coast. The condo was immaculate, well equipped, and perfectly located. The owner was more than willing to be flexible with dates and was extremely open to communication. My children and I are already planning a longer stay next year.
This is a perfect place for families - I particularly like the "quiet" time between 10 PM and 10 AM that is enforced.
We LOVE Grammie's Place!
We had such a nice vacation at Grammie's Place. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay relaxing, comfortable and convenient. We especially liked the "starter kit" of soap, paper towels, toilet paper etc. and the lock box with the key. The condo is a 5 minute walk to the beach and is also close to grocery shopping, restaurants & shopping and fun activities. What more could you want? The condo is cozy- love the outside picnic table for card games, hanging out and ordering in seafood. The property was clean and well maintained and even had chairs, umbrellas and boogie boards for our use. There are tons of fun places to eat like Bad Bean Taqueria, Sunset Grille on the Sound, Grammy B's Ice Cream and Tomato Patch Pizza. We also enjoyed shopping at Timbuktu and the Corolla Lighthouse. Everyone took a turn on the tennis courts- not something we usually get to do! We highly recommend Grammie's Place!
Great Vacation Place
My family and I had a great vacation!!! The place was larger than we expected, very clean and well equipped. The pool was great for relaxing and the beach was only a short walk, loved the ocean and the little sand crabs. We loved sitting out on the deck. Very close to grocery stores, mini golf and restaurants.
From the Owner
“When the Bunting family was transferred from Pearl Harbor, HI to Washington, DC we missed the beach but began renting in the early 80's from another Navy friend who had built a house in the private community of Ocean Sands in Corolla, NC. We stayed at the A-Frame and then later at the Dog House in Section F for 20+ years before finding "Grammie's Place" in 2003.”
