I have made the long trip from NY to the Corolla Light Beach Resort 4 times to spend a vacation week with my family. We absolutely love the beautiful expanse of beach, the scenic historic village and lighthouse nearby and the glorious sunsets overnight. There are many amenities available with staying in Corolla Light - the pools, the gym. A... More

Now over 30 years since its inception, Corolla Light continues to evolve and improve. Our family spends at least a week each year. the family has changed over the years -- from young kids to young people to young professionals to, now, five grandbabies. But the sand and surf and pelicans and crabs and osprey and treks up and down... More

The house we stayed in (Corolla Belle) was beautiful and right on the beach. Corolla Light in general is well groomed, clean, and fun. We have a 1 year old, so we liked taking her to the outside pools and the playground. I took advantage of using the amenities like the gym and basketball courts. Our family had a great... More

We have been vacationing in Corolla for 18 years, and the majority of those stays have been spent in Corolla Light. We love everything about it....the amenities, the proximity to both soundfront and oceanfront activities, the beautifully manicured grounds, and the fact there are accommodations to fit any budget. We want three things on our vacation: a roof, beds, and... More

Like the family vacations of old. Not over commercialized but still enough to do. The pool areas are awesome. The activities during the summer perfect. Walk over and climb the lighthouse and visit the great shops behind it. There are a few rental companies to choose from but I suggest Brindley Beach.

My family and I love vacationing to the Outer Banks once a year. We usually find time to go anytime from June 1st to September 21st. We look for a place that fits 6 comfortably and is within walking distance to the beach, this year we were fortunate enough to come across an exceptional example of first class OBX rentals.... More

This was our first time staying in Corolla Light, we have three younger children and the amenities were perfect for them. Basketball, Volleyball, putting green, play sets, shuffle board and an outdoor heated pool, just to name a few. The homes are nice and everything is very close to the ocean. We'll stay again.
