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 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.

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.

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.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
