About Down Under

Welcome to Down Under OBX!


This is a vacation rental situated in the Monteray Shores community of Corolla on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Built in 2012, this cottage has several amenities for an enjoyable stay should you choose to rent Down Under.

First, the cottage is cozy, and boasts an open floor plan that invites family gatherings in a bright, fun setting replete with all the modern conveniences.

Upstairs, stainless steel appliances and granite counter-tops in the kitchen, with 5 bar-stools, a colorful dining set, plenty of tableware, whisper-quiet dishwasher, and tile flooring, makes a perfect center of activity during mealtimes. In this well stocked kitchen you will find a Keurig Brewer, a 12 cup programmable Cuisinart Coffee Pot (requires #4 cone filters!), an Oster blender, a toaster, a waffle maker, mixer, automatic wine bottle opener, and two large steamer pots.  In the living area, two colorful couches and a side chair allow plenty of seating for family members or enough space to stretch out for the occasional afternoon nap. The 50″ flat screen TV, which is equipped with a soundbar/subwoofer combination, delivers awesome sound for those action/adventure movies (guy alert!). There are over 50 movies to choose from! (Wowzeers!).  In addition to the DVD player, there is also a Stereo with Subwoofer which you can play music directly from your smartphone via bluetooth ( New for 2015) should you choose to vibrate the entire house! Located in the cabinet below the stereo are several games and puzzles for some fun family time. The hardwood floors in the living room area lead to carpeted bedrooms and tiled bathrooms.

From the family room/dining area, there are sliding glass doors that lead out to the back upper deck.  There are several chairs located on the upper deck so you can just sit and relax for a bit. There is a latching gate located at the top of the stairs that lead down to the pool area below.  There is also another latching gate located to the side of the bottom of the outside stairs that leads to the side yard.

The master suite is equipped with a king size bed, dresser, nightstands, side chair, and a (huge) walk-in closet (girl alert!). Sliding glass doors exit to the deck overlooking the pool. The master bath has double sinks and a step-in shower. The other two upstairs bedrooms are outfitted with a queen size bed in one, and a pair of twin beds in the other. These share a hallway bath with a bathtub/shower combo. In the hallway bathroom, there is even a step stool for the little ones. Every bedroom has a flat-screen TV.

In the closet in the front door entry area you will find a folding table and chairs, a box fan, step stool, baby gate, high chair, portable crib, two vacuums, a broom w/dustpan, extra light bulbs, and a first aid kit!  Extra batteries can be found in the kitchen drawer to the right of the stove.

Downstairs, is first and foremost, the game-room (family fun center!). This floor is tiled and outfitted with a queen sleeper-sofa (allows the cottage to sleep 10, YAY!) and side-chair, three cushioned ottomans, two fufsacks (over-sized bean bag type chairs), a bean bag chair, and two small Fat Boys that are great for the little ones, a PS3 console with 4 wireless controllers and 15 games to choose from, all played on a 70″ flat-screen TV with Surround Sound/Subwoofer(WOOT!)(70″ TV with Surround Sound/Subwoofer-New for 2015). The PS3 can also play blu-ray DVD’s which is a great option for movie night! Over in the corner is an awesome Foosball table. There is also a wetbar equipped with a microwave, refridgerator, plastic cups, coffee cups, and a small coffee pot (requires #2 standard filters)  Down the hall first doorway on the right, you will find a large laundry room with a washer, dryer, storage cabinets, clothes-folding counter top, iron and ironing board, and a laundry basket.  The second door on the right is the downstairs bathroom with a bathtub/shower combo.  Straight ahead, another bedroom outfitted with a queen bedroom set, that rounds out the lower level. Back in the main room, the sliding glass doors lead out to…….


THE Pool is crisp and refreshing, and cared for by professionals. You might notice them here occasionally; please be kind as they are only making sure your stay is pleasant. There is a shelf on the deep end that acts as a seat, and there is a ledge all around the sides that allows short guys (kids) to keep their heads above water all the time.  It looks awesome at night with the lights on.   Multiple Adirondack chairs and lounge chairs litter the concrete surround for relaxing around the pool area.  There is also an outdoor shower located on the back patio between the sliding back door and the gated fenced in area surrounding the pool!

THE Hot Tub. Seats 8 adults comfortably. Turn on the jets and relax as the massaging effects wash your worries away. At night time, turn on the rainbow cascading lighting as you enjoy gazing at a star filled sky away from all the hustle and bustle of the city. This is an awesome place to relax anytime especially with your morning coffee, or after you get back from the beach. There is even a towel rack next to the hot tub for parking your towels during your spa visit.

In the carport closet you can find just about everything you need to enjoy the pool and the beach! There are various floats, noodles, and toys for the pool, plus a hand pump to inflate the floats, and a beach umbrella. Gotta love it!  For those short walks to the beach, the Wheel EEZ! will lighten your load!  PERFECT for a leisure walk to the beach!  There are also beach chairs(10 chairs), boogie boards, kites, and fishing poles.
