We rented a house in Corrola a few years ago 100 yards from the ocean for what I think I remember was less than $350 for a week, but it was the late half of September when the rates drop.  The house was up on stilts and had at least three bedrooms.  Pretty nice, but lots of driving was necessary, since there's really only one road.
He keeps sending me links to houses near Corolla, in the 4x4 area. ::)  That will be great, like it won't be expensive enough for us to fly across the country, then we need to rent a 4wd truck to get to the house.  I guess that is the price I pay for living somewhere awesome.  He still lives in NJ ;D 

We've been to the Outer Banks a lot, but not in that area.  Still, it would be nice to go somewhere else.

It's not a popularity contest, it's beer!

I'll send it on, but when I asked where they WANT to be here is the message I got in return:

Beach
Warm
Big House
With Family
We don't care <meaning they don't care what city it is in>

My brother settled on a place and reserved it, a nice big place in North Topsail Beach, NC.

Thanks for the help everyone, we looked at a lot of great 9+ BR places up and down the coast but it came down to availability, it seems like you need to plan for these houses WELL in advance.  It didn't hurt that the price of the one he picked was great.

The marketing is a little annoying, they list it as an 11 BR place, but 2 of the "bedrooms" are pull out couches in the living rooms.  But it is plenty big for us, and the pull outs will be nice if some of the potential drop-ins show up.

Nice! What days will it be best for me to "drop in"?   ;D

A little late to the party, but did you look at Hilton Head?

We did, didn't find anything that looked big enough.  I like that area, it's been a long time since I've been down there.
