Spring, Summer and Fall are all great times to be in the OBX, Great Temps,peaceful beach walks, beautiful sunsets, and the indoor pool, tennis courts, and hot tub. It Just does not get much better than this! House Pool opens April 15 and is closed on Oct 17, 2015 . NEW FOR furniture for ground floor den and second floor den. New Flat screens for first and second floors dens. One smart flat screen 55 inches. New carpeting in all second floor rooms. NEW FOR 2015... Granite counter tops in Kitchen and 1st floor wet Bar and new flooring in all 2nd floor baths. This beautifully decorated cottage style home in Corolla Light Resort provides everything you will need to have a great restful or action-packed vacation. It is located close to the historic Whalehead Club and shares their majestic views of the Currituck Sound and all the native wildlife. The home is beautifully situated among the pines on one of the largest and most private sound front lots in this great resort community. The house has large decks with over sized Rockers, Adirondak chairs, and two porch hammock swings to sit in and enjoy the breezes between the pines and the views of all the sound and Whalehead Club activities. There is a hammock in the back yard that is the perfect resting spot and observation point of the nearby Corolla Lighthouse.

The Lighthouse is a 3 minute walk away and is open for tours daily as is your next door neighbor the Whalehead Club. Between the two of these points of interest is a new Wildlife Museum that is open daily for a free tour and viewing of a movie about the history of the area. Their is no better location for closeness to all the oceanside/soundside and townside amenities in this resort area. If you want to walk, your destination is close by or if you want to ride the resort's trolley, it stops to pick you up at the entrance to the culdesac the home is located on.

In addition to the Large private pool and hot tub at the home, the community offers 3 oceanfront pools, clubhouse with dining and an activities area with games (b ball, shuffle board, air hockey, volleyball pool table and arcade) as well as a playground for the tykes. The community also offers an indoor sports center with Tennis Courts, Olympic sized pool, weights, cardio equipment, and a large indoor hot tub area. The resort also offers supervised planned activities for children and adults. With the rental of the house, you will also receive wristbands that allow you to access all the resort amenities. The Corolla Light Resort was named the best resort in North Carolina for the decade of the 90's and has won the 'Best Resort' designation in North Carolina every year it was allowed to be included in the competition including last year.

The house was recently upgraded with new hardwood floors and a 48' HD LED Flat Screen TV. We also added new furniture to the top floor living area and upgraded the phone (free LD calls in the US) and high speed wireless internet service. The neighborhood is well located near shopping, restaurants, and a golf course. Staying here entitles the guests to reduced rates for golf at the Currituck Golf Club which is just 3 miles away.

About Doug Godfrey

Jeanette and I learned to relax on the outer banks of North Carolina. We started experimenting with North Carolina Vacation spots in 1979 just after we moved to Williamsburg Virginia. We went to every NC beach from Oak Island on up thru Topsail to Nags Head, to Duck before we vacationed in Corolla in 1989. Since then we have been coming back and always enjoying our vacation. We've watched the area develop and we are very satisfied with how the area has ended up today.

Doug Godfrey purchased this house in 2004

Why Doug Godfrey chose Corolla

We loved the laid back NC environment. We always left any of the stress of daily work day life on the mainland side of the bridge. When we started looking to buy in 1994 we did a through search of all the neighborhoods from Southern Shores to Ocean Hill. The Corolla Light Resort amenities in the end won out by a landslide. Our home is used year around the indoor sports center increases the usage of the home from twenty-five wonderful weeks a year to year around for our family and grandchildren.

What makes this house unique

We are in the center of everything. We are in the middle of and can walk or bike ride to the Ocean Clubhouse area, the Soundside Sports Center, Corolla Village, the Lighthouse, The NC Wildlife Education Center, and the Whalehead Club and grounds. All the amenities of the NC Resort Community of the decade and most resent year are right at hand. Being located on the Sound across from the Whalehead Club is great for a peaceful and calming rest in the middle of Natures wonderland.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Osprey and wildlife watching is great!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to this house five times and love it each and every time. Every year Doug and Jeanette upgrade or improve something. We've been to other houses in the OBX and nothing compares to "Sounds Like Fun". They have a million dollar view. Gorgeous sunsets and great location. We love the kayaks and the bikes. Doug the owner is great to deal with. We look forward to going every year and already booked our trip for next year. Can't go wrong with Sounds like Fun.

Wonderful vacation home. We all had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Corolla Light. "Sounds Like Fun" was a wonderful rental home. We all had plenty of room to spread out and the views from the deck can't be beat! This house is easily accessible to everything in the Corolla Light community. We are already discussing a return trip.

Love this house!!

  • 5 of 5

This will be our second year in a row staying at this house. Doug the owner, is a great guy and is more then helpful in answering any questions or concerns. We're really looking forward to going again in May 2011. I love just hanging out on the deck and watching the wildlife. The house is very well maintained and a joy to stay at. We didn't need anything besides what was already there. They thought of everything you may need to cook with etc. The location is awesome for the kids. They rode the bikes up to the candy store everyday and went over to the museum that is practically next door. There is a lot to do, but we choose to just relax and enjoy the house and the scenery. We will keep coming back year after year.

Late October Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed in other homes and areas in Corolla and Corolla light. This home is far and beyond our favorite. It has plenty of space, is tastefully decorated, and receives wonderful light. The sunsets in October are simply breathtaking, and they illuminate the main living area. Views of the sound and Whalehead Club grounds are right off the back deck, and the Corrolla lighthouse can be seen peering through the pines outside the kitchen window. Overall, this house probably has the best views on the sound. The ocean is actually very close, a 5-10 minute walk depending on your pace, and on some nights you can hear the it even though you are soundside.

The property is immaculately cleaned, up to date, and well-maintained. You will feel much more like a guest in a home as opposed to just staying in a rental. While I am somewhat hesitant to write such a glowing review, it is too good to keep as a secret. I have no doubt you and your family will love staying at Sounds Like Fun as much as we did.

What a lovely home! The accommodations were wonderful and the resort very accommodating. We could walk on the beach in the early morning, sit by the pool later in the day and while away the remaining time on the lovely decks overlooking the sound. A truly restful vacation - just what we were looking for. Although, there was plenty to do if that is what you wanted. We took a wild horse tour on our last day that was great! I would highly recommend this property.

Our soundfront home is located on a large bulkheaded lot in Corolla Light Resort. We are very convenient to all the nearby activities. The Whalehead Club, & Corolla Island are back yard neighbors. It takes about 3 minutes to Walk to the boat docks & Wildlife Education Center. When there you are only a two minute walk to The Corolla lighthouse and Old Corolla Village. We are centrally located to all the Resort amenities. It is about a 6 to 8 minute walk to the Oceanfront amenities or the Soundside Sports Center. It is a very private lot with great water & Wildlife views. There is a break in the bulkheading in our backyard which is the perfect spot to put a Kayak in. You can enjoy all of this from our expansive decks and screened porch. Many activities occur at the Whalehead club from weekly concerts in the summers to weddings year around. There are bikes in the bike room under the screened porch which make everything closer & the trolly picks up at the end of our Cul de Sac.
