The search for the week of 8/17




Anyone want to help us find a house? We're looking for something from Duck south to SNH (Corolla could work if we can't find something elsewhere) checking in over the 8/16-8/18 weekend for one week (check-in day does not matter).
Other requirements include:
1) $4,000 or less
2) Oceanfront/Semi-oceanfront or *extremely* easy beach access (150' or less)
3) 4-6 bedrooms (we really only need 4brs, but the inventory of 4br homes w/ a pool is very slim)
4) Private pool

We could use help finding that perfect house. =)

Quick search. Did Sun because they seem to have less expensive houses. I would think your criteria are limiting you. Oceanfront in August, pool, five bedrooms under $4000. It might be hard to find. JMHO

Yeah, we're not counting on oceanfront (although it's preferred). And really we only need 4 bedrooms (we only have 5 adults & 2 kids), but the inventory of 4br houses w/ pools is pretty slim.

I think your budget will hold you back on this. Maybe you could wait just one more month..?? In Sept the prices drop consideribly and you can get a great house for much less. Good luck!

Things are filling up fast which is normal for January. I sent you a PM.
Good luck finding a place that meets your needs.

How about this: http://www.southernshores.com/rentals/property/1217
Slightly above $4000 at $4395. Looks like a real nice house, and though it's semi-ocean front, it has it's own private beach access, and private dune deck. I love looking at beach houses, even if it's for someone else's vacation! smiley

You actually have quite a few options if you don't mind getting a house that fronts beach road. I did a search on Joe Lamb Jr., with 4 or more bedrooms, private pool, semi-ocean front, for your arrival weekend, and got 47 results. Maybe Tim could be of more help, I believe he works with Joe Lamb.

Here is another one just slightly above your budget but a huge home with a lot of amenities. Do you have any friends/relatives you want to invite?

Looks like Twiddy has several in Corolla that meet your requirements, but also these two in Duck:
