Families or couples are welcome at 'Lagniappe', an immaculate, beautifully decorated condominium in Corolla, home of one of the widest beaches on the entire Outer Banks. Wake up to sunshine and warm weather, breathe in the salt air, and adjust to a slower pace as you relax on the front porch swing. In the evenings enjoy the sunset as you stroll along the sound-front walkway, grill up some fresh seafood, or treat yourself to dinner at one of numerous nearby restaurants.
A kitchen, dining area, and living room, complete with first-rate entertainment system and 350+ DVD library, make up the main living area. One queen bedroom and another with twin beds and sliding glass door share a full bath. The master bedroom is equipped with a 40' LCD flat screen and has a private deck with peaceful views across the neighborhood pond. A luxurious master bath, Jacuzzi, and pillow-top queen bed will pamper you at the end of a long day in the sun.
Beach access is a short 2 ½ block walk, or if you prefer, the shuttle will drop you off at the Corolla Light ocean-front complex with its three fresh water pools. Better yet, if you have four-wheel drive, simply throw your chairs, umbrella, and cooler in the back, head north for a mile and a half on Rt. 12, and drive right out onto the beach - you might even see some of the famous wild horses!
Just across the street is the Corolla Light Sports Center, complete with indoor/outdoor clay tennis courts, 25-meter heated pool, spa, aerobics room, fitness/cardio room, weight room, and racquetball court. Membership is automatically included as part of your stay.
Local attractions include the Whalehead Club, a restored 21,000-square-foot hunt club open daily for tours. The Currituck Beach Lighthouse is one of only 3 lighthouses on the Outer Banks open for climbing, and the newly-opened Wildlife Education Center features an exhibit hall, auditorium, waterfowl decoy gallery, and numerous activities throughout the week. All are within easy walking distance. Local bait shops will be happy to organize whatever type of fishing trip you desire, and golfers will enjoy the acclaimed Rees Jones designed course at the Currituck Club, less than five miles away. Surfers are in luck too; many area shops offer rentals as well as lessons. The Wright Brothers Memorial and Museum and the famous Jockey's Ridge in Kitty Hawk are only 30 miles south.
This home is truly kept in excellent condition, and it really is a home, not a “rental machine”. Here are a few comments from our guest book:
“This is the fourth condo we've stayed in at Mirage, and definitely our favorite - nicely decorated and lots of extras makes it easy to feel at home here. Can't wait to come back!”
“Dear Kathy and Dave, just a note to say thank you. Everything about your rental property exceeded our expectations. In addition to being clean and well maintained, your decorations and furnishings, collection of cooking spices, book and video library, hammock (swing) and so many other personal touches made your condo property a beautiful and comfortable home away from home. We felt very welcome – thanks so much!”
“This is our 3rd trip to Corolla and we still haven’t done everything we wanted to do… The condo was great, and the beds very comfortable. You provided us with more than we imagined. The kids enjoyed the boogie boards, football and games. We all enjoyed the porch swing and the movies (we had a tough time choosing one!) This is a great community and the amenities are wonderful… Thanks!”
“This is our 4th visit to Corolla and Lagniappe is definitely our favorite condo! Very tastefully decorated, comfortable beds. Loved the porch swing – what a great touch to a vacation getaway. Spent each morning reading outside on the swing.”
“Thank you Dave and Kathy – we love your home, it was the perfect place for us this week. We look forward to our trip down yearly and were not disappointed. Your home is lovely, complete, and very comfortable. We’ll be back.”
“Your condo is beautiful and the kitchen so well equipped. The master bedroom was lovely. We had dinner on the patio almost every night. The movie selection was great, we only wish we could stay longer… Thanks, thanks, thanks.”
“Your condo is beautiful and I can’t tell you how much we appreciated all of the extra touches – the well equipped kitchen, the movie selection, the material on where to go/what to do, and the swing on the front porch. We would love to stay here again – thank you!”
We were frequent visitors to the Outer Banks before purchasing our home, and made numerous visits to Nags Head, Hatteras and Corolla. When we decided to purchase we chose Corolla because it is less commercial than most areas of the Outer Banks and it has the some of the widest, cleanest beaches we had seen.
We love visiting our home! Being part of the Corolla Light community gives us access to excellent amenities which include a 3 pool ocean front complex and an indoor sports center complete with pool, aerobic machines, weights and even two indoor clay tennis courts! Best yet our home is only a short 5 minute stroll to the beach!
Before we purchased we stayed at many different rental homes on the Outer Banks, and unfortunately experienced some disappointments. We take pride in offering a home that is complete, comfortable, clean and well maintained. We hope you enjoy staying here as much as we do!
