Villages at Ocean Hill Corolla, NC

We will be renting a home in this community in June 2012. I know they have tennis courts there, and am wondering if they provide the racquets also, or can you rent them there? Any other info about this community is welcomed as well. It will be our first time there. Thank you.

We stay in the same house every year across from the community center because of location and all the amenities. There are two community pools we have access to. The one at the community center is niced sized and the smallest depth is about 3 feet. It is not heated but fairly warm. There is an attendant at the pool at all times but not a lifeguard. The pools are very clean. Directly behind this pool is a walkway and you can feed the big and little snapping turtles old bread. The kids love it. The beach side community pool is much smaller and colder. Although it is beachfront, you can not see the beach from this pool because of a big sand dune. A walkway directly beside the dune takes you right to the beach. The pools are about 1/2 mile apart from each other depending what part of Ocean Hill you are staying in. From the community center you take Route 12 to go to the beachfront pool and turn right. If you continue going north on Route 12 from the community center for a 3/4 a mile or so the road dead ends you will run right into the 4 wheel drive beach access. If you don't have 4 wheel drive then you need to turn around. Driving on the beach in 4 wheel drive is great. That is why we take our truck every year rather than our van.

Yes, at the center you can rent the tennis racquets and balls. I think it is $5.00 hour. You can also use the workout facility but you have to pay for that by the day or week. They have showers there too. The playground area has a climber and a set of swings with sand surrounding and a few park benches. There is a full court basketball spot which is fun. Access to the bike trail is right there. If you want good pizza and subs go to Corolla Pizza right by Ocean Hill. The lighthouse is 1/4 mile from the community center. Enjoy your trip. We have to wait until August.
