All the Amenities!
Perfect location with all the amenities and needs. House is an easy walk to beach or even the bay. The pool and outdoor shower are also a great feature. Home itself is comfortable and large.
Amazing Pool Area!
I just wanted to thank you again for your hospitality. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The super comfortable beds, the well stocked kitchen, the gorgeous decor, the amazing pool area, the sweet technology throughout the house, close proximity to the beach, etc., made our vacation so wonderful. My in-laws were raving all week about how great the house was. We will hopefully be renting Happy Daze again soon!
We loved our stay at Happy Daze! It was so nice to relax in the pool and/or hot tub after a long day at the beach, which was only steps away. We loved sitting on the decks in the morning and evening. The rocking chairs and swinging hammock chair were awesome! We enjoyed playing games (lots provided) and watching movies in the spacious dining room/living room. The little ones were very happy with the legos and other toys. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, and anything you would need. Last but not least, the beds and pillows were comfortable...and I’m very particular about pillows.
Happy Daze is a beautiful home. It’s location is perfect, so close to beach access, beautiful views of the ocean and sunsets, and the added privacy of a wooded area surrounding the perfect pool space! The pool, hot tub and decks have shade, sun, views and furniture for everyone and everything! the house decor is bright and all the spaces are comfortable and spacious! So many windows for light and views! The kitchen is stocked with everything you could possibly need. The bedrooms have lots of pillows, blankets, hangers, hooks, laundry baskets.... they have seriously thought of everything! The beach chairs and corn hole game were perfect! We had a great week and definitely recommend this house. We were there with 2 adults and 5 kids and could have comfortably fit several more!
SO Close to the Beach!
We had such a great time in this home! SO close to the beach, clean, room to spread out and incredibly well equipped. Can’t say enough good things
Beautiful Ocean Views!
Absolutely love this gorgeous home in the perfect location close to the beach, community pools, and oceanfront complex! The private pool is wonderful if you want to stay close to home and the beautiful ocean views, fun decor, and well stocked kitchen make it a fantastic space for a beach vacation with plenty of room to relax!
Everything You Need!
We had a wonderful time in this lovely, welcoming home! So close to beach access and the community pool. The owners have done a wonderful job updating the home, with a well-equipped kitchen. I loved the fact that all cupboards, dishes, and light switches were labeled, making our stay much more enjoyable. Check out the awesome Welcome Book on the coffee table- it has everything you need!
Great location! Great layout of house and deck. Loved the deck furniture! Everyone loved the pool and close access to the beach. Thank you for all the thoughtful amenities!
Definitely Coming Back!
We had a great few days with family. We will definitely be coming back. The house was clean, stocked with everything needed for kitchen and bath, also lots of games and movies. With just a super short walk to the beach it was a great place to stay.
Awesome Place to Call Home!
Happy Daze is perfect for us! We been two years in a row and we have already reserved 2019! We were worried when we rented at first but the renovations have made this an awesome place to call home for a week. We only have 10-11 people but there is plenty more space. Beach is right there and the whole resort has all your needs! The personal pool is perfect for kids to use up the rest of their energy after a hot day. We will be back, probably for years to come.
The perfect location; steps from the beach and a short walk from stores and restaurants! It was so relaxing to use to the pool and hot tub after a long day at the beach. We enjoyed the swing and rocking chairs on the deck in the mornings, and playing games in the spacious dining room and living room in the evenings. Many new updates!
We loved it, and our kids loved it!! We had a great week!!
Owners Took Great Care!
Happy Daze is a great house! We stayed in the house before and after the renovations. The new owners took great care to update the home in many areas and will do more in the coming year. The new appliances, kitchen and living rooms were perfectly done and comfortable. The location is great- we will be back! Can't wait!!!
Price wasn’t Insane!
We loved it and plan to return next year. It's a great location to everything and the price wasn't insane. Oh, having the kids toys there! Holy moly that was soooo nice and the bunk bed room! How perfect! 3rd visit is definitely a charm! Another 5 stars! Love all the updates and the new swing and chairs on the deck are so great for relaxing... sooooo amazing! We will be booking again next week to get the same week again...
Very Spacious and Bright!
We were the second fortunate family to stay at the newly renovated Happy Daze. The owners care in renovating his home is evident and the beachy decor was very well done. The kitchen was one of the best stocked that we've ever seen in a vacation rental (there was even a clam steamer!). The living area and dining room are very spacious and bright. As if the beautiful decor and attention to detail were not enough, the location is the best ... close to the beach, resort pool, playground, basketball courts, and restaurants ... just a bike ride to the lighthouse. Although the pool wasn't open when we rented, in season, with the pool available, there wouldn't be anything else you could want.
Our Favorite Corolla Home!
We had a wonderful time at Happy Daze! Perfectly located to the beach, community pools and the restaurant. The most well appointed kitchen I've seen yet, with more than enough kids stuff which we greatly appreciated. The Legos were a big hit! We love, love, love your home. Our favorite Corolla home yet, and we've stayed in a fair few! Thank you for a wonderful vacation! Can't wait to return.
Really is a Beach Paradise!
My family were lucky to be the first guests in the new renovated Happy Daze for the 2017 season. We couldn't have gotten a better house for the price, amenities and location. The owners have done a fabulous job on the renovations and I understand more are planned. Everything was tastefully decorated and we lacked for nothing. We tend to cook most nights at home, so the fully stocked kitchen was great. The new kitchen is a delight to cook in. The owners have great taste in their furnishings and bedding choices. It really is a beach paradise. I highly recommend this house to anyone seeking a vacation in OBX. These owners really care if their guests have a good time. Their follow up is appreciated. We'll be back.
