Corolla, North Carolina
Golden Retreat - Outer Banks
Our home was designed to be our "retreat" and is located in the Currituck Club, a private gated community consisting of over 600 acres with private homes and villas carefully integrated around the Rees Jones championship golf course and the Currituck Sound.
This Golden Retreat with 3,700 square feet of porches, decks, pool and patio areas, is ideal for entertaining or soaking in the tranquility of the environs.
Professionally landscaped, there are plenty of places to daydream, nap or read your favorite book. The different deck levels are furnished with comfortable chaise lounges, chairs and umbrellas. The hammock and front porch swing are favorite places to enjoy the morning and afternoon sun. And after a rewarding golf game, there is the pool to take a refreshing dip and the hot tub to stargaze.
It is a home that invites you to relax and enjoy the slower pace of life on the northern Outer Banks. With over 4,400 square feet of living space, Golden Retreat offers 5 master suites, 3 with king beds, 1 with twin beds that has oversized doorways and a handicap bath and a fifth bedroom that is also an office with a daybed/trundle. Each bedroom is equipped with their own TV/DVD unit and private bath.
Custom built in 2002, our home features upscale finishings, a gourmet kitchen with cherry cabinets and granite counter tops, skylights, hardwood floors and many custom built-ins. Our home includes many upgrades throughout -- such as 2 jacuzzis, soaking tub and 3 gas fireplaces. It has been professionally furnished in a contemporary style and has been lovingly maintained.
Our home is designed with a "reverse" floor plan to take advantage of the beautiful sunsets over the 16th fairway and the Currituck Sound. Common areas include a mid-level rec room with home theater, pool table and a second kitchen/bar designed for entertaining with its own refrigerator, dishwasher and microwave. The sunroom on the top level is one of our favorite spots with the sun streaming through its many windows -- a great place to read your newspaper or catch up on your email. Our home offers wi-fi throughout; and an elevator services all three levels.
On the patio deck there is a built in gas grill and dining area to enjoy meals al fresco. The back of our home is especially private as we own the lot adjacent to our home and the home site on the other side remains undeveloped. Our front porch, shielded by a canopy of live oaks and tucked away from the street, is ideal for enjoying morning coffee or tea.
Amenities for the community include a fitness center, three swimming pools, lighted tennis courts, volley and basketball courts and a 20,000 square foot golf clubhouse. In season there is a trolley transportation system that takes guests and owners throughout the community or to our beautiful expansive beach.
We have been coming to the Outer Banks for 35 years. We invite you to experience the magic of its beaches, wildlife and recreational activities while staying at our retreat! We suspect you will fall in love with this very special area, as we did many moons ago. We hope to welcome you at our Golden Retreat!

Slice of Heaven!
We recently visited Golden Retreat in Corolla.....truly a slice of heaven! We live a few hours south and took the opportunity to have a 'stay cation'. No planes, no rental cars, just a quick drive north. Golden Retreat sits in the Currituck Club, which is an amazing planned neighborhood with perfect pathways, roads, landscaping and community buildings. The golf course meanders through the club with breath taking views of both open ocean, sand dunes, sea oats and immaculate homes. Every aspect of this club is considered, maintained and appreciated. Golden Retreat is equally as fantastic! We entered an impeccably cleaned and maintained home. No detail was over looked and these owners take huge pride is this breath taking asset. The commanding view from the top floor overlooking the golf course stopped us in our tracks and the enormous kitchen qualifies to be every chefs dream. We loved the multiple sitting rooms, family rooms, gas fireplaces and open floor plan!! Although the house interior is exquisite, we spent most of our time in the pool which is surrounded by beautiful Oak Trees, giving you complete privacy. We had most of our meals on the giant BBQ and 10 person outdoor table and chairs. We LOVED having a wonderful time outside and appreciated both lots on each side of the property undeveloped, allowing privacy and a natural surrounding. We loved staying in the Golden Retreat and would highly recommend this gorgeous home to any and all groups. Thank you for a wonderful visit and we hope to come back soon!”
Wonderful Vacation Home
Golden Retreat in Corolla, North Carolina was a wonderful place to spend the last week of summer. The home itself proved to be a great place for 3 couples to relax, hang out, cook, and relax. The outside deck sitting areas are large with comfortable seating on 2 different levels and the pool area is terrific. Everything in the house is organized and labeled and the accompanying manual answered every possible question we had over the week. The location was good to get to the beach, see the Corolla wild horses, and in easy distance to several really good restaurants. Great house I hope to visit again and the owners were terrific in providing info regarding the house and surrounding area. ”
