Had so much fun until we had to be evacuated. Great place.
Sep 2019
We had 3 adults and 4 kids (8yrs old thru 16) and a dog. The house was very nice and even though it was pet friendly it did not have any indication that pets were there on a regular basis...no smell or pet hair. All the bedrooms were nice sized and the lower level bedroom was actually one of the best, which is unusual. Pool was large and clean and was a great change in pace from the beach. Hot tub also was in good shape and was hot and relaxing. The upper level was spacious and comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped and had both a regular coffee maker and Keurig. It has a built-in charcoal grill, which didn't sound great to me, but it is one of the best grills I have ever used (after I cleaned all the left over coals and ashes). It is a very solid grill and there were even a few bags of charcoal left from previous renters. There are plenty of beach chairs and beach toys for kids. The pool table is nice. It is three houses from the beach access, but also three streets in from the beach so you do have a short walk to get to the beach. It was fine except we had rented a 2 person Kayak which was just too big and heavy to bring to the beach everyday. We should have known better but including that in my review just in case someone else is considering the same gear rental. the neighborhood itself is very nice and quiet and the beach is not crowded at all. We had a very nice week at the beach at this house.

7/13 week
Loved the house and the floor plan. Loved the open space on the top floor. It was nice having the kitchen, dining, and family room open. It made for great family time. The 4 bedrooms on the second floor were awesome and it was very quiet with little noise from the 1st or 3rd floors. We did make use of the pool table on the first floor and of course the pool. It was great having the outdoor shower so we could rinse off after the beach. The location was perfect with only 2 houses down from the beach access pathway and just a short walk to the beach. We felt that we were in a quiet area with little traffic but just a 2 mile drive to the nearest grocery store, restaurants, wings, gas station and so much more. We rented bikes and enjoyed the bike paths on the main road and a short flat and enjoyable ride to the shopping area.

Great Experience!
Equipment was at our house when we arrived. Everything was in good condition and we were so thankful for the cart to carry all of our equipment to the beach! Would definitely rent from them again!

Expectations Were Met!
Expectations Met is a great house-I highly recommend it. The house is bigger than I expected, and well stocked with kitchen supplies, bedding, movies and games. The pool is bigger than most. We had a few minor issues, and all were dealt with my the rental company promptly. The house is a brief 5 minute walk to the beach and a close drive to stores, shops and restaurants. I highly recommend Expectations Met!

Perfect house for the perfect vacation
If you are looking for a perfect house for a family with kids and dogs this is it! The house was absolutely spotless. We are a family of 11, six adults, a 13 yr, 11 ye, 9 yr, 6 yr, 2 yr, a two dogs. There was never a time we needed something that wasn't available in the home. The owners show a real concern to stock the home for a perfect vacation. I strongly suggest this home for a perfect vacation in Corolla.

Great time at Expectations Met
The layout of the house worked out great. It was definitely well stocked and the pool and hot tub were such an added bonus. It was very convenient to just about everything. We enjoyed all of the decks and the pool was stocked with quite a few pool toys/floats. I would have to add that I thought the 800' to beach should be modified to reflect beach access because it is definitely further than that to the beach. It's a nice walk but it was a bit farther than the 800' that we were expecting. The lighthouse and park are a nice bike ride and walk and we enjoyed visiting the quaint shops in that area too. Would recommend replacing mattresses in master bedroom and guest room across from master. They are starting to get uncomfortable.

The Carpiala with a Dig Vacation!
It is not only the family and friends who make your vacation enjoyable,but the location! Had a fabulous time and would recommend this home to others. We were a bit surprised with a few issues at first but nothing that ruined our vacation. Very accessible to beach and we LOVED the pool and hot tub! Hope to return next year with another SWANDA!

Wonderful house!
Wonderful house! Had everything we needed and we enjoyed everything from the pool to the hot tub, the pool table and baskerball hoop. So many movies and puzzles and a TV in every room. We loved our stay here and God willing will return next year.
Jun 2017
Fit us well
Would recommend this home. It fit all of our wants - large pool, allowed a dog, near a corner for better beach access without price of being beach front. Hot tub could use some maintenance (not all the jets worked) but otherwise everything was clean and well maintained.

Wonderful OBX Vacation
Fabulous vacation! Well stocked kitchen - only thing missing was a tea kettle. Spacious and comfortable. Love the open upper living level. Pool was great and used daily. Nice outdoor shower. Not a bad walk to the beach but during the heatwave in July, any walk was long in the "real feel" temperature of 100+ every day. Convenient to everything in Corolla.
