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.

"Our Beacon Villas Vacation! When you are crossing the bridge at 10:30 and get a message on your Village Realty App that your house is ready, you know it’s going to be a good week. Picking up the keys was seamless and the ladies in the Corolla office were sweet and friendly as usual. We arrived at our townhouse to...

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....

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.

We visited in April and Corolla Light resort is really nice. Ocean and bay front pools, and indoor pool and great sports and rec center with indoor pool, hot tub, workout room, indoor tennis, racquetball and locker rooms. In season there is a shuttle service to help get you around. Obviously a resort with excellent management.

We are 30 + year OBX renters and have rarely had any issues and NEVER had a problem like this. We have stayed in Coleman 3 sisters getaway for 8 years.

We rented a condo for ten of us (our family) called Aqua Villa. It fit our family well, and it was clean and well stocked (except for no salt and pepper or dish washing soap). We brought the soap with us but forgot the salt and pepper. The condo's carpet was a bit spotted in a few places, but we...

Vacationed at a home on the Oceanside in Corolla Light. 4 families - grandparents, parents and grandchildren. There is something here for everyone. Easy beach access, playground with basketball and shuffleboard, beautiful ocean front pools, and quiet streets where the kids can safely ride their bikes.
