We stayed in a condo at the resort. What a family friendly place with basketball and tennis courts, playground, shuffleboard, and volleyball. Terrific pools, easy walk to beach, great variety of accommodations. I enjoyed workouts and yoga on the beach, while the kids played basketball 3 on 3 tournaments, and did a home run derby.

All in all a great place for a family vacation. We stayed in a villa called Paper Moon - very nice! There were 9 of us (4 adults and 5 kids) and there was plenty of room. It was the last one on the street. It was only a short walk to the beach, pool, or little town center. The... More

Great place for family and kids! We loved walking to get coffee and ice cream! Kids used basketball and tennis courts! Loved the pools by the beach! A short walk to the beach no matter where you stayed! Loved the lighthouse right a cross the street! We all climbed it for a small fee! Would go back again!

Our group rented two places near the clubhouse. We had previously stayed in Kitty Hawk so the drive north and the 2 hours it took to go 19 miles was something new for me. I think the best bet is to stay in a hotel near the sound bridge the night before your rental is available, leave for the island... More

The Corolla Light Resort is a great family vacation. A short walk or bike ride to Whalehead and the light house. Our kids ran a 5k from Whalehead one morning also. There is a lot to offer for kids of all ages and plenty of places to fit small and big families. Recommend to all.

I've stayed here many times in the past. The community is very nice especially if you have kids. There is always something fun to do. The pool area is nice and the restaurant/bar is perfect for lunch. This summer I stayed at the Trade Winds on Payson Rd. I'd avoid this rental. It was very dated.

We rented from Brindley Beach on June 1, 2014. The house # was 605 in Corolla Light. When we arrived none of the TV's were working. They could not help with the problem and I had to call the Cable company. They had to send a representative the next day and found that none of the boxes there were registered... More

Corolla Light Reort is the best. The pools are alway clean, the beach was so pretty. We really enjoyed the resort. But the house,Friday Habor was aweful. Bugs everywhere, roaches, ants on the counter. There were stains on the carpets. The dishwasher had mold in it. The front lock fell off in our hands, the side door was covered in... More
