Why Greg and Teresa Roberts chose Corolla Light

We vacationed at the OBX for over 20 years and this was the perfect place to own our dream house. Amenities and security were only a few of the reasons we chose this location. This is the perfect spot for walking our dog or taking a quiet stroll along the sound after dinner. Corolla Light is a family oriented resort for any generation.

What makes this house unique

The quiet cul-de-sac and pine trees surrounding the house give you the privacy you look forward to while vacationing. The Indoor Sports Complex is just next door for year round use.

Our 4th Summer

  • 5 of 5

This is our family's 4th summer at this beautiful home. The owners take pride in their property and it shows! Now that the youngest is riding her bike, that was the only way she wanted to travel to get to the beach. Fortunately the beach is just a short distance away to ride your bikes to or even walk -- or if you prefer, you can catch the trolley. The Corolla Light community has so much to offer. Perfect place to vacation with young ones, tweens and teens, with plenty to do within walking distance to keep them busy. With kids ages 7 - 18, not once were there any complaints. Check-in is extremely easy. We love returning to this beautiful home, especially since it it dog-friendly and can't imagine our beloved golden retriever not with us. This house is well appointed and has everything that you need. Bicycles, beach chairs and a crab traps are provided. Biking to the lighthouse and nature center were highlights during this summer's stay. During one of the more overcast mornings, we did a wild horse site-seeing adventure. We hope to be able to return.

Owner's Response: We feel great that returning guests love our home as much us. This is a great resort for the perfect vacation with friends and family to make lasting memories. Every year we try to update or add something new to the house to make their stay even better. We also feel fortunate to have guests that take care of our house as we do and look forward to returning every year.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd summer at this vacation home and is perfect for multiple families gathering together for vacation to include our family dog. The owner provides everything you need in the house for cooking, barbecuing, bike riding, going to the beach, etc. The salt water pool and spa are awesome. We always enjoy the amenities and activites Corolla Light Resort provides.

Owner's Response: Repeat guests are the reason we provide everything possible that would be needed away from home. They are like friends we can trust to treat our house like their own. We even welcome suggestions for something that would make their stay even better the next year. The resort certainly speaks for itself and provides activties to keep every generation busy while vacationing. The family dog is also welcome as we would never leave home without our own.

Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our multi-family vacation. The description was accurate and the home provides everything you could want or need away from home. The pictures do not justify how peaceful and large this home is. The three levels allow for privacy and plenty of space from one another if needed. There was entertainment throughout, benefiting all age groups. The ground level provided hours of entertainment to our young teens as they enjoyed the outdoor music by the pool, had easy access to snacks and drinks in the down stairs refrigerator, and played wii and board games. The hot tub on the top level provided peace and quiet and was large enough for most adults at one time. We used the top level grill often while relaxing on the screened in porch and enjoying the evening air. Another fabulous bonus to this property was the Corolla Light amenities. The staff was very friendly and helpful in every way. Use of the trolley was great accessing the oceanfront pool area; however, walking the shortcut to the beach was simple and relaxing as well. Restaurants and grocery stores are in close proximity to this home. There is plenty of shopping available without going all the way back to Kitty Hawk. This was a plus for us. The wild horses are located a few miles from the home but you must drive down the sand or get a tour guide. We were able to watch several sunrises on the ocean and found lots of treasures along the beach. This home provides all the comforts you want and is located with easy access to everything. We even rode bikes to see the Corolla Light House. We highly recommend this vacation home. The owners are pleasant to work with and truly want guests to enjoy themselves. We could not be happier with this vacation experience.

Owner's Response: Our house can accommodate all age groups in separate areas for everyone to do their own thing. The resort has won the North Carolina Resort Community of the year award for several years. Their amenities are top rated and there is always something to do for the entire family. The house is on the sound side so there is no view of the ocean or sound, but both are only steps away. Our guests all have different ideas for their vacation, some like to go sightseeing or shop and some are there to just relax. Whatever their hopes are for the perfect vacation, we want them to leave feeling they experienced that and will want to return.

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family has been traveling to OBX for 20+ years and this house is by far the best find on the Outer Banks. The owners are exceptionally in tune with the needs of the vacationers. The home was one of the cleanest I've ever stayed in. Thoughtful details such as a notebook with every household detail you would need to know. The well stocked kitchen made meals a breeze. We will continue to rent this home any chance we get.

Owner's Response: We want all guests to have a vacation they can remember and strive to provide everything to make that happen. We are always open to suggestions for any items we may not have. We also make sure the house is clean and comfortable so our guests leave with lasting memories and are ready to return.

so nice!

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming down to OBX for years, and this is the first time staying in a resort. This house is just right for about 4 families. Nothing is lacking. I love the salt water pool system, I've never been in one of those and it is so much better than chlorine. The resort amenities are fantastic. This was also our first time staying sound side and I have to say there's no reason to pay extra to stay ocean side when the beach is still only 5 minutes away. We will be coming back next year.

Owner's Response: The salt water pool system is wonderful and if you ever try one it is hard to go back to the chlorine again. Staying sound side has many advantages. What's more relaxing than watching the pine trees sway and seeing the beautiful sunset each evening. Stroll along the nature trails or ride a bike to the lighthouse. Of course all the Corolla Light amenities are just steps away. You can take advantage of all the resort activities and stay busy or just relax and do nothing.

Excellent Spring Break!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, large, fully equipped home. Within steps of indoor sports complex and reasonable walk to ocean access. The children loved the bikes! I cooked quite a bit while there and found all kitchen utensils, pans, etc that I needed. Really well equiped kitchen! There were even pet food dishes available to use. We will be back!!!!!

Owner's Response: At our vacation home, we try to picture the years when we were the guests and what we expected for that long awaited vacation to be perfect. We are always thinking of ways to make our guests feel at home by providing the little things that sometimes get missed. We strive to provide all the kitchen appliances and misc. items that you would have forgotten to bring with you. We also provide a clean comfortable atmosphere that you don't see in all vacation homes. We want our guests to feel like they are at home at the beach. More important we want them to come back next year.
