About Lynn Bisighini

We bought this home in 2010 and have upgraded a number of features of the house and grounds so that our guests will be comfortable and have the best possible vacation they can have in this beautiful beach area. A favorite saying of ours is 'The beach is our happy place' and we try and ensure that our guests have that same feeling while they are staying at Beacon of Light.

Fantastic OBX Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Beacon of Light is a great property to rent for a vacation in the OBX. I have rented several houses and this one has everything you could want and more. In our group we had 8 adults and 9 kids (all 5 and under) and we had more than enough room. We never felt like we were jammed in tight or running into each other. There are spaces to retreat if needed; a few sitting areas, seating on any of the decks outside or the hammock. The four leather chairs on the top floor was a favorite place to relax and watch the kids run around. The kitchen is very well stocked with any utensil you could want, and was roomy enough to have a few people in there prepping meals or cleaning up after. The pool was amazing and looks pretty cool with the black concrete stone on the floor. We did a couple night swims and with the lights gives the pool a cool vibe. The grassy area in the back was great to have. We played corn hole and bocce ball and sat at the tiki bar having a couple drinks while kids "mowed" the grass with the bubble mowers. Having the ice machine and ice on demand was key and a drink never went cold. The beach isn't too far away. We drove everyday we went to the beach and parked in the public parking on Shad Rd or got lucky and parked at the ocean front pool. The house has lots of umbrellas, beach chairs and beach carts. Being a part of Corolla Light was a nice perk. We used the ocean front pools as relief from the beach for the kids or to grab a quick snack or drink. Lynn was easy to work with and responsive to our questions. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at Beacon of Light. The house is wonderful and had everything we needed, down to beach chairs, umbrellas and beach cart! The kitchen is well stocked too! Can't think of anything that we needed and couldn't find. The house location is fantastic! A short walk to the beach, a short walk to the sound, ice cream right across the street from ice cream, which was a nightly outing and the perfect view for 4th of July fireworks (we had a perfect view from the front porch!). Our time was so perfect that we are hoping to make it an annual event! Thanks Lynn for sharing this wonderful home with us!

Perfect Fit

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous home and perfect for our large family. The elevator allowed my mom and daughter to move freely within the home. The pool was the perfect size and the games at the home were nice entertainment.

Our second year

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's second year vacationing in this home. Everything you could want or need has been provided by Lynn. This year we enjoyed having the large umbrella in the pool area. Our family rented a beach buggy/golf cart seating 6 people and had a great time scooting to the grocery, to The Beer Garden as well as the cute local shops. We also rented a pontoon boat across the street on the bay at North Shore sports. Had noticed that the second floor mini fridge was not working and the Keurig coffee maker leaked. A simple email to Lynn and Wes was there within 24 hours with new units. Looking forward to enjoying many more years enjoying this vacation property. Thanks again, Lynn!

Owner's Response: Par We are so glad your family could stay with us again. We got the big umbrella for the pool area because our guests mentioned that the pool area is so sunny and they would like some shade. Also thanks for the great tips on other things to do in the area. There is so many other wonderful activities besides the beach

WOW

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic home! I think this is the only time where the house looks better than the pictures. The beach, a few restaurants and a playground for the kids were all in walking distance for us. Everything else we needed was a short drive away.

The house was clean, roomy, and everything was in excellent condition. Whether you have children, pets or just adults, all of the amenities make it a fun filled trip. There is really nothing else I could of asked for in this home. I plan to return and will recommend this house to any of my friends who are planning a trip to Corolla.
