Thank you all for making our vacation so perfect!

This was our first visit to OBX in September and it was one of the best vacations we've had! We had a few moments of some rough weather, but this house saved the day! As a family of 9, having a place to spent time with everyone, but also to do our own thing is important and this house did just that! All the little details like the decor and outside area made this house fell like home. The spot in town/near the beach and all the technology made it so we never felt bored, just relaxed. We love this house so much and thank you all for making our vacation so perfect!

2022 | North Carolina

A beautiful place to celebrate life!

Where to begin?! This was the first family vacation that we have had with my mother, father, brother, and my own family - ever! We were able to see some wild horses, a new colt, get a little sun burnt, and play in the sand. My two sons and daughter had a blast! Thank you for giving us a beautiful place to celebrate life, mother's birthday, and family!

Loved the short walk to the beach!

We had such a fun time while we were here. We loved the short walk to the beach and lovely neighborhood to ride our bikes and walk around. We played pickle ball every morning and road our bikes to the ice cream shop daily. We loved having the pool in the backyard to play in all day. The house was amazing and perfect for our family. Overall our stay here was amazing!

Would definitely recommend & stay again!

We stayed there the week before Memorial Day and had a great time with a large group of family! The house was great! Decorated cute and can tell is well loved by the owners and guests! The private pool and hot tub were nice as well! It also is so close to the beach and a town center that has shops and places to eat! Kelly, the owner, was great leading up to the trip and during the trip, with communication and local recommendations. Would definitely recommend and stay again!

Stayed at Happy Daze this summer and had a fantastic time! The homeowner is a great communicator throughout the process and provides a wonderful experience for vacationing! Would 100% rent there again! Great house! Great times!

2021 - 2023 | New York

Over the top for an OBX vacation!

Happy Daze OBX was such a beautiful house! The owners were so accommodating and responsive with everything and anything we needed! The details included in the house were over the top for an OBX vacation. There were laundry baskets, suit case stands, and even travel shampoo if you forgot yours. You can tell the house is a labor or love. My family was really sad to leave. We ended up staying in a hotel an extra day and my son saw the new renters and told them "I hope you make happy memories here just like we did!" We will definitely be back as soon as we can!

June 2021 | Illinois

Could not have been better!

Our family vacation is very important these days due to Covid and not being able to get together. Happy Daze was a great choice. Location is perfect and the house was adorable.When my grandkids got there they were so excited to see all it had to offer for them. It could not have been better. We will definitely be back for a repeat.

Well Stocked!

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.

July 2020 | Pennsylvania

Beautiful Views!

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!

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.

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.

August 2020 | Virginia

Perfect Location!

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!

September 2017 | New York

Loved It!

We loved it, and our kids loved it!! We had a great week!!

August 2017 | Pennsylvania

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!!!

2017 - 2023 | Kentucky

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...

May 2017 | Ohio

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.

May 2017 | Virginia

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.
