Low Rates! 130 yards to Beach, Family Friendly

Sleeping Accommodations: 5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

Bedding Information: 3 Queens, 2 bunkbeds one with double, 2 twins, playpen

Experience the best OBX has to offer at “Kelly's Beach Retreat". Our home's unique & spectacular location, literally just steps from the ocean, is what makes it the perfect vacation spot. It's the best of the Outer Banks at a price that won't break the bank. Wake up in the morning and enjoy coffee on the deck while gazing at the ocean. Take just a few steps (130 yards to the beach) and you're at the wide, sandy beach. Spend hours relaxing at the beach which is open enough for football, soccer, kite flying, volleyball or an OBX favorite beach botchee ball. Every minute is meant to have family fun and time together. The world-class golf at the Currituck Club is minutes away, and we are close to putt putt golf, tennis and go-carts for more family fun. Restaurant and shops are nearby. Corolla’s abundant shopping is casual and fun,with a great array of unique, locally-owned shops. Browse clothing, jewelry, gifts, T-shirts, kites, and grab a coffee or snack along the way. Food and beach essentials are easy to pick up nearby, so you’ll be well prepared to kick back and relax.

Our beach house has 5 bedrooms – 3 with Queen beds, one with 2 twins and one with 2 bunk sets one with a double be on bottom. The living area of the house has a spacious Great Room with gas fireplace, a large open living area, a fully-equipped kitchen with dishwasher, dining seating for 12 guests, and it leads out to large deck and a screened-in porch which has dining seating around a picnic table. The house includes laundry facilities, charcoal grill, beach chairs, beach cart, enclosed outdoor shower, and municipal water (not well water). It rents from Sunday to Sunday because the traffic is much better. Cleaning is provided but you must bring your own linens and towels. And it's a bargain because you rent it directly from us and not from a management company so you pay no extra fees. Weekly rates range from $800 to $2600 depending on the season. Two week rentals can take an additional $100 off the total. Hurricane insurance, early checkin at 2 PM and cleaning are included. The only additional fee is the 14% NC Tax. Many of our guests return each summer so our weeks book up fast. Don't wait to reserve your week in paradise.

We'd love to have you visit.

Repeat Visitor, December 1, 2010
By Heather Jankovictz (Raleigh, NC)
This was my second time staying at the Kelly's beach house. Each time I come back I find a new place to check out. The first time I was there I went to Jockey's Ridge and this time went to the Currituck Lighthouse. I look forward to coming back in April and discovering yet another new place. I highly recommend this house. What I love most is the big table in the dining area. It was able to hold 10 people for an evening meal. It was nice to eat our pre-race meal and relax.

Great Family Vacation, October 26, 2010
By Brian DAmico (Roselle Park, NJ USA)
The house was great, good communication with renters. Nice area, close to beach. Drove to the popular Nag's Head area...i like the beach near the house better. Great weather and not very crowded in Sept. Would rent again.

Great Fall Weekend at OBX, October 25, 2010
By Beth Beasley (Yorktown, Virginia)
We are a group of friends who started coming to the OBX over 25 years ago and we stayed at Kelly's Beach Retreat for 3 nights. It was wonderful. The cottage is large, clean and in a quiet location, but not too far from shopping and restaurants. We were very pleased with the cost. Another great feature was the late check-out time on Sunday so we didn't have to pack and leave in a rush. Glenn Kelly was very helpful and easy to contact by e-mail or phone. We are planning to return in the spring.

2010 OBX vacation, September 23, 2010
By Molina family (Richmond, VA)
Another great vacation at the Outer Banks and Kelly's Beach Retreat! The house is a great location, only a short walk to the beach with views of the sunrise and sunset. It is in an area of private homes with beach access-no hotels or public beach access. The house is well furnished and has a large kitchen as well as large area with comfortable furniture for relaxing. We particularly enjoy the option to eat inside with A/C or on the screened porch. Both have a large table that easily accomodates 8. There is a large deck with comfortable furniture for those times you aren't at the beach. The Harris Teeter is less than 1 mile away and there are lots of shops and restaurants in the Corolla area. This was our fourth year and we'll definitely return.

Fantastic Time!, September 4, 2010
By Linda Wojo (Washington DC)
We enjoyed our stay at Kelly's Beach Retreat more than any other OBX vacation. The house is well-furnished (brand new leather sofas in LR, for example) and very comfortable overall. The rooms are large, open, full of light. On days you can't get to the beach, you'd have a great place to hang out at the house. The owners are super to work with; they provide much more detail and helpful tips about the house and OBX area than any other owners we've encountered. This rental is an all-round winner!

Awesome / Will be a repeat guest, August 2, 2010
By Michelle P (Manchester, CT)
My family and I recently stayed at Kellys Beach Retreat, and our stay was fabulous. The house was very inviting and it had all the comforts of home! I was alittle apprehensive at first with it not being ocean front, but the walk to beach was easy, simple and even my 2 year old had no problems with it! My family and I come to the OBX every year, and we have definatly found our new vacation rental home. We will be back again next year, thanks for a great week!!

Wonderful Time, June 23, 2010
By Kimberly Sanderlin (Chesapeake, Virginia)
We had another wonderful vacation at Kelly's Beach Retreat. The weather was absolutely beautiful. I feel right at home during our vacation every year and my children have grown up enjoying our week at the Beach every June and love the experience. I hope to have many more memorable experiences at Kelly's Beach Retreat with my family and friends.

May-2010, June 14, 2010
By Llew Wood (Fairfax, Virginia)
This is a great house for family and kids. Nice bedrooms, large kitchen, great deck with ocean views, and plenty of space to eat. We would rent this house again when returning to Corolla.

Great time, June 12, 2010
By Georgia (Warrenton, VA)
We had a ladies'week and it was great.Saw horses on the beach in 4x4 part. Very relaxing.

Early Season Vacation at Kelly's Retreat, May 18, 2010
By Trey (Chesapeake, VA)
This is my first experience in Corolla, NC and the Kelly's Beach Retreat is in OBX PRIME location. Mr. Kelly was outstanding to work with, and the house was extremely large with all sorts of ammentities included. You honestly only have to put food in the fridge, linens for the beds and swim suits for the beach which is a hop, skip and jump away. I would highly recommend this rental property during any month of the year.

What a great spring break, May 4, 2010
By ric oberkrom (dayton, oh usa)
Wow all time record high temperatures for April and a great place to stay made for one of the best weeks our families have ever had. The house was immaculate and has everything you need for a great week. The beach chairs and sand cart were a great help in getting us off each day to the BEAUTIFUL BEACH. Outside shower and faucets were great and the rooms were very comfortable. I hope someday to come back here and relive this past week. Thanks again for letting us stay at your beautiful home.

Sunrise in Corolla, December 6, 2009
By Margaret Ingram (Fredericksburg, Virginia)
We have gathered as a family at this property several times over the last few years. The house is spacious, clean, and a very easy walk to the beach. We have chosen it repeatedly because it met our needs so well.

Wonderful Time, October 27, 2009
By Heather (Raleigh, NC USA)
We had a fabulous time in Corolla. The house was wonderful and very spacious. It was a short walk to the beach and very convenient to shopping. I will come back and stay at the Kelly's beach house again.

Great vacation home!, October 5, 2009
By Kristin (Jersey City, NJ)
My friends and I had a wonderful trip. It was a great house within walking distance to the beach and a very relaxing atmosphere. Thanks for a great vacation!

Great OBX vacation, September 29, 2009
By Jacki Lee (Clayton, NC)
My husband and I had a nice five days at Kelly's Beach Retreat with our Australian shepherd. It was great to walk to the beach a few times a day and enjoy the sun on Kelly's large deck where you can hear the waves. Plenty of nice lounge chairs added to the enjoyment. The kitchen had everything we needed, (pots, dishes, utensils, etc.) plus lots of dining space. Plenty of TV's and the wireless Internet worked great. The proximity to nice grocery stores and shops is excellent, no time wasted driving around. The owner, Glenn, was a pleasure to deal with,efficient with no realtors involved!

Another great vacation at the beach, September 23, 2009
By Joyce Molina (Richmond, Va)
This was our third year at the house and once again we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The accomodations are great and we feel like we are at home. The walk to the beach is short and the beach is not crowded. The deck is our favorite spot to sit and enjoy the evening after a day in the sun or visiting the nearby lighthouses.

Great Value!, September 14, 2009
By The Polito Family (Glen Allen, VA)
Kelly's Beach Retreat offers a very reasonably priced 5 bedroom home with nice features, private views and a short walk to the ocean. Our family also enjoyed the spacious eating area and large deck in the rear of the house. A great place to stay with close proximity to lots of attractions.

Outer Banks Delight!, August 25, 2009
By Tom Lanigan (Ewing, NJ)
Kelly's Beach Retreat is just that a ==delight. The house is well equipped as like we were home. Pretty much everthing you need the Kelly's have for you. The administration stuff is nicely done via the US Mail and email. With Mr Kelly being very responsive to inquires and needs. We have been there 3 times with additional enhancements each time. The Kelly's take pride in their home which is a "win" for the vacationers!Plus the weather was great w/o 8/16 even with BILL off the coast!

Wonderful vacation spot!, August 8, 2009
By Ann (Richmond Va)
We enjoyed a wonderful vacation with other family members at Kelly's Beach Retreat. The house was in excellent shape and very, very well furnished. Convenient to shopping and restaurants and a short walk to the beach.

Perfect Beach Retreat house, August 4, 2009
By J Thompson (Richmond, VA)
This house meets all are needs. Is well equipped,clean and just the right size for several families. We enjoy the many decks and the big "sand box" under and beside the house. Beaches are easily accessible and nice. We enjoy the wildlife. Great value for a great vacation! Book early because we missed out this year.. :(

Great Place to Stay, July 16, 2009
By Farol Tomson (Gainesville, FL USA)
House has lots of space with a great kitchen/eating area. Very clean with lots of toys and items for the beach. Kids and adults loved it all.

Extremely happy with the value, June 25, 2009
By Tim and Kim Sanderlin (Chesapeake, Virginia)
We have been going to Kelly's Beach Retreat for many years. The house is always clean, conveniently located, and child friendly. We are a family of five and this lovely beach house will not break your budget. We look forward to visiting each year.

By B. Smith (Irwin, PA)
This was a great location. Easy access to all the major amenities in the area and close to the beach.

Home-away-from Home, October 23, 2008
By M. Kargbo (Maryland, USA)
This rental property was so warm and inviting that it felt like a second home. I also enjoyed working with the owner. He was professional, yet friendly which made the rental process simple, quick, and easy. I would definitely recommend renting this home.

Awesome!, October 14, 2008
By Pat Blaney (Charlotte NC)
Just got back from Corolla and our stay at Kelly's Beach Retreat. This was our first time to the Outer Banks and it could not have been better. Property is great - clean and well-appointed. Very short walk to the beach, very quiet neighborhood, close to shops and restaurants. We are planning to go again next year!
