Description

Vacation in Luxury

Vacation like a celebrity when you book Victorian Fan Ta Sea. Once featured on TLC’s Jon & Kate Plus 8, this large Victorian-style rental is the perfect place to bring the whole family (and your four-legged best friend!) for a relaxing getaway. Less than 500 yards to the beach, a day of fun in the sun is just a short walk away.


Pull up to your Victorian beach cottage and park underneath one of two single-car carports and enjoy plenty of outdoor space to store your beach gear. Summers get hot in the OBX so you and your family will love lounging around in the huge (16’ x 32’) private saltwater pool. A cozy game room with half bath is the ideal place to pull out your favorite board game or shoot a round of billiards at the pool table. A sleeper sofa is located downstairs to provide extra space if needed. The laundry area is also located on this level.


Walk upstairs to the first level and enter into a large, decorated foyer. Rest comfortably in one of the 2 King Bedrooms or the plush Queen Bedroom. The Pyramid Bunk Bedroom down the hall is a great place for the kids to hang out. Two Full Bathrooms are located between the bedrooms. Enjoy your quiet, peaceful mornings sipping coffee on the enclosed sundeck with ceiling fan. Outside, the deck swing is the perfect place to chill after a long day of fun and there is plenty of covered deck space that wraps around the front and side of the house if you prefer to sit in the shade.


The great room on the top floor features a half bath and a huge dining room with seating for ten around the table. The modern kitchen is a great place to cook up your favorite meal and includes updated appliances and a pantry closet for all your beach snacks. Take a seat in the lovely family room full of bright, natural light, so you can enjoy the sun even when it’s too hot to sit directly outside. A raised living room area on this level features a TV, fireplace, and tons of seating so the whole family can spend some time making memories together. An inviting King Master Suite with Full Bath completes the top level. Soak up the sea breeze and enjoy awesome ocean views from the outdoor decks wrapping around the side of your Victorian beach house. For ultimate serenity, take a dip in the bubbly hot tub under the covered outdoor gazebo complete with incredible views.


Vacation Fantasies Come True In Corolla

Your family will love staying in Corolla. Away from the busiest parts of the OBX but still close to local attractions and great restaurants, there is something nearby that everyone in your party will enjoy. For a one of a kind OBX experience, drive a few minutes down the road to Corolla Wild Horse Tours and take an open-air safari-style tour to spot the Corolla wild horses. For something a little more daring, check out Corolla Adventure Park where the daredevils in your family can climb over 60 different obstacle courses and ride 8 zip lines. And of course, you can’t stay in Corolla without visiting the Currituck Beach Lighthouse! For lunch, try Corolla Village Barbecue or Corolla Pizza & Deli. Stop by Fat Crabs Rib Company for dinner and enjoy fresh seafood platters, tasty ribs, or a combo steamer pot. With so many awesome activities to enjoy, your beach fantasy will become a reality when you book Victorian Fan Ta Sea!

Great Stay

Reviewed on 2019-08-08 by Tom

We had a great stay at Victorian Fan Ta Sea! We very much enjoyed the house and OBX. Loved the area, nice to be further away from the busy areas of OBX, way up north in Corolla. Spent lots of time in the Jacuzzi, in the pool and playing Pool in the game room. In Corolla we enjoyed lunch at the Corolla Village BBQ, while eating it at The Shack Beer Garden where we went for both coffee in the morning and drafts in the afternoon / evening. Great fun Jet skiing at North Beach Watersports. Enjoyed dinner at Uncle Ikes, and best pizza was from Pizza. Great bakery for croissants and muffins and ice coffee at Northern Lights Bakery. Also had a great wild horse safari trip with Corolla Wild Horse Tours. Rented bikes through Kitty Hawk and had a great day driving them around Corolla and up onto the 4 wheel drive beach north of Corolla. All parts of the trip booking and logistics were seamlessly managed with Seaside Vacations.

FAQ

What do all the different locations mean?

There are two (2) roads running north/south on the Outer Banks. The "Beach Road" (NC 12) is a 2-lane road with a speed limit of 35 MPH. The "Bypass" (US 158) is a 5-lane road with speed limits 45-50 MPH. 

 

Please note: The Bypass is incredibly busy during the summer season on the Outer Banks. Seaside Vacations advises our guests to please take safety precautions when traveling on the Bypass. If you must cross the Bypass on foot, please make sure to do so at designated pedestrian crosswalks - never using the center turn lane as a stopping point.

 

Oceanfront - An oceanfront home has no homes or buildable lots located between it and the ocean. The distance between the home and the ocean may vary. 

 

Semi-Oceanfront - Semi-oceanfront homes are located one lot back from the ocean and may or may not require crossing the road. Children always will need assistance to cross any road. The rental may or may not have a home between it and the beach. The distance to the water, beach accesses, and views vary.  

 

Oceanside - These homes are located east of Highway 158. These homes have two or more homes between them and the ocean. These homes may or may not require crossing a road, and may or may not have an ocean view. The distance to the ocean varies. 

 

Soundside - These homes are located west of Highway 158 from Southern Shores to Nags Head and west of Highway 12 from Southern Shores to Corolla. The distance to the sound and views vary. Some homes may not have direct access to the sound (soundside homes in the village of Duck do not have direct access to the sound).  

 

Soundfront - These properties front the sound with no homes or lots in between. The distance to the sound, access to the sound and the view vary. Sunsets can be gorgeous! 

Do you offer any travel insurance? 

We offer travel insurance through Red Sky Travel Insurance. We highly recommend a travel insurance plan, especially since the Outer Banks is so prone to hurricanes. The travel insurance plan is priced affordably and covers a variety of issues that could impact your vacation should unforeseen circumstances occur. As they say on TV, “Life comes at you fast.” Most notably would be a mandatory evacuation due to a hurricane. Here are a few other things covered by travel insurance: sickness, injury or death of you or a family member, business partner, or traveling companion, the insured’s principal residence being made uninhabitable by fire, flood, vandalism, or burglary, involuntary termination of employment, military duty, etc.

 

If you would like to have specific questions answered, please call RedSky Travel Insurance at (866) 889-7409 or visit www.suntrippreserver.com (policy coverage information).

 

Remember, in order to have coverage due to a named hurricane, a travel insurance plan cannot be added after a tropical storm becomes a “named hurricane.” We tell you this because it could be very costly to wait. You would have to contact Red Sky Travel Insurance for specific details.

Do I have to pay any taxes on my rental? 

Unfortunately, the tax man doesn’t take vacations. Obviously, we do not set the tax rates and we only collect the taxes for the county. If your rental home is in Currituck County (Corolla), the tax is 12.75%. If your home is in Duck, Southern Shores, Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills, or Nags Head, the tax is 12.75%.

I don’t see rates for next year. When will these be available?

We publish rates for the following year in March of the current year. You may reserve the home by paying the first half of the rent or by setting up payments with our Vacation Layaway Program.

What/where is Club Seaside?

Club Seaside is an exclusive program consisting of complimentary events and discounts on popular Outer Banks activities that are exclusive to Seaside Vacations guests. Click on Club Seaside to obtain more information including schedules, contact information and to make reservations for each activity.

*Some events include a small fee.

Are linens and towels provided? 

Linens and towels are provided for ALL of the homes in our vacation rental home program. Normally, all beds are made prior to arrival (with exception of top bunks). However, due to Covid-19 safety measures, beds will not be made prior to arrival for the 2021 season.

 

Towel sets are also provided. There are enough towel sets for the number the house sleeps.

 

One bath towel, one hand towel and one washcloth per person is provided. The towels are placed on each bed in the home. One bath mat per bathroom is also provided. (Towels are not freshened daily.) Two potholders, one dish towel and one dishcloth are provided and are placed on the kitchen counter prior to your arrival.

 

We do offer extra sets of both towels and linens at an additional charge. For prices and to place an order, contact a Vacation Specialist at (866) 884-0267.

 

Please Note: Bunk beds, pyramid bunks, sleep sofas and trundle beds are not made prior to your arrival. Linens are provided for them and are placed on the respective bed. Unfortunately, we do not provide sheets for cribs.  

Does my property have internet access and how is the WiFi? 

Most of our properties do offer internet access. Please check your property's website description to determine what type of internet service (if any) is available. If your home doesn’t provide this service, there are many free WiFi hotspots all over the Outer Banks. 

 

Wifi is normally very good, however, being in a remote area there are occasional unexpected outages. In those events, we will do everything in our power to get service restored as quickly as possible, but we would recommend bringing a hotspot as a backup plan if wifi is a necessity for your family.

 

Below is the lowest broadband speed for Dare County's internet providers:

 

Spectrum: 50MB
Century Link: 10MB

What are your policies on bringing a pet? 

Most dog friendly homes allow two (2) mature, house-trained dogs (75-pound limit). Dogs are not allowed in any rental home unless otherwise indicated. Cats and other animals are not permitted. A fee (plus tax) per dog per week is added to the rental amount. Dogs (and any other animal) are not allowed in pools, hot tubs or spas. Tenants are responsible for any damage incurred by their dog, as this type of damage is not covered under our Security Deposit Waiver Fee. Owners of dogs at non-dog homes will be subject to a $200 unauthorized pet fee and may be evicted without a refund. 

Please be aware that all of our beaches have leash laws.

Our vacation home has a pool. Can we have the pool heated? 

Pool heat is available with some of our homes typically between April-June and September-October. There is an additional charge for pool heat and this charge varies by home.

 

Please remember that most pool heaters will only heat the water 5 to 8 degrees above the outside air temperatures. For example, if the air temperature is only 60 degrees, the pool water will likely be no warmer than 68 degrees. Pool heat does not give a “hot tub” effect, it merely prolongs the pool swimming season.

What time is check-in? 

Please know that we want to get all of our guests into their vacation home as soon as we can. Our check-in time begins at 5:00 p.m., as the houses become available and are released by Housekeeping and Maintenance. We will be happy to check you in as soon as the cleaners/inspectors give us the "OK." Again, please know that our goal is to get you on your way, enjoying your vacation, as soon as we can.

I have keyless entry. Do I still have to come to the office?

Our keyless entry service allows you to go straight to the home on check-in day, any time after 5:00 p.m.! In addition, when checking out, you may head straight home (skipping our office).

Do you offer early check-in? 

We do offer early check-in for homes with 1-5 bedrooms, but we do ahve a limited number available each week. Please call us and request an early check-in at least one week in advance. The cost for early check-in is $125, plus tax. Early check-in is at 2:00 p.m. Unfortunately, we cannot offer this service on homes with 6 or more bedrooms.  

What are your check-out cleaning requirements?

Check-out is at 9:00 a.m. on the day of departure. Cleaning crews arrive at the home at 9:00 a.m.; your prompt departure is appreciated. 

All keys are to be returned to our office upon departure. (Keyless entry guests do not have to stop by the office to check out).

Please leave the home tidy by completing the following items:

  • Clean out the refrigerator and leave the refrigerator/freezer settings on medium. Please leave any unopened, non-perishable food items on the counter in the bag provided for the local food banks.
  • Place all trash in the cans provided or in a nearby dumpster. Move trash cans/recycle bins to the street the night before you leave. (Pick-up is done prior to dawn.)
  • Please wash all dishes and put them away or place them in the dishwasher and begin the cleaning cycle.
  • Turn the thermostats to 75 degrees (summer) and 55 degrees (winter).
  • Please turn off all inside and outside lights.
  • Leave grills, furniture and accessories as you found them.
  • Remove toys/trash from the pool area. Make sure the hot tub cover is secure.
  • Strip the linens from the beds and pile them at the foot of the bed. Leave the towels in the bathroom.
  • Make sure the propane tank has been shut off for all gas grills. Please clean any and all grills using the grill brush provided.
  • Check closets, drawers and under beds for personal items.

Please make sure you close and lock all windows and doors and also have someone check the security of all doors and windows from outside the home.

Can you drive on the beach in the Outer Banks? 

Beach driving is allowed on several places in the Outer Banks but permissions vary by town. Driving is allowed year-round in Corolla/4x4 Carova Beach Area north of the paved road but only allowed south of that point between October 1 and April 30 and parking permits are required in-season. Driving is allowed on the Cape Hatteras National Seashore at designated access ramps and with a permit only. Driving in Kill Devil Hills and Nags Head is permitted with a permit between October 1 and April 30 at designated access points. All 4x4 access areas are subject to change due to nesting wildlife or impending weather conditions at each town's discretion.

Which Outer Banks beaches allow bonfires?

Gathering around a beach bonfire is the perfect way to spend your evening. On the Outer Banks, bonfires are allowed on the beach in Nags Head, on Hatteras island and on Ocracoke Island under certain conditions and with a permit. Bonfires are prohibited on the beaches of Corolla, Duck, Southern Shores, Kitty Hawk and Kill Devil Hills. Learn more about having bonfires on the OBX.

What are the Outer Banks wild horses?

The Outer Banks Wild Horses (also known as the Corolla Wild Mustangs or Banker Mustangs) are a herd of wild horses who live in Northern Corolla and are descendants of horses brought to the "New World" by Spanish explorers. Banker Mustangs can be spotted roaming the beach, playing in the waves, and grazing on native vegetation. These mustangs, although docile in nature and beautiful to watch from afar, are still wild and should never be approached, touched or fed. The herd is managed and protected by the Corolla Wild Horse Fund. Learn more about the OBX Wild Horses.

What is the trash collection schedule?

Please click here to find the days of the week that trash collections will take place for each town.

 

Bag all trash and place it in the home's outdoor trash receptacles with the lids tightly closed.

 

Sanitation Cart Placement: To ensure that your trash and recycling cans are emptied, they must be placed out at the edge of the roadway the day before the scheduled collection service. Trash must be inside cans and the lid must be closed. The following cannot be placed into trash cans and will not be picked up: Oil, propane, paint, charcoal, yard waste, construction debris, or hazardous waste. Trash or recycling placed outside of or on top of the cans cannot be collected. Cans must be removed from the edge of the roadway and placed next to a building as soon as possible on the same day of collection. (Please put trash in the black and brown trash cans.)
