As for the house itself it was beautiful. The house was clean and comfortable. But the decks were very rough and unable to be walked on without shoes. Several of the deck chairs literally fell apart when sat in. The ice maker didn't work or look like it had worked in a very long time. No more than 2 people...

You will find a little bit of everything for a family beach vacation. Ocean and Sound front pools, restaurants, quaintness abound, nature trails, close to the lighthouse, whalehead club, four wheel drive area and shops. The resort has several neighborhoods to stay in with several types of accommodations. Wonderful area.

This is a lovely place. The staff is friendly and it is located only a few blocks from the ocean. We had a room with a sound view. It was right on the water. The porch is communal but spacious enough. Because the whole floor was pet friendly my dog got to play with other visitors pets. The room was...

My husband and I visited outer banks for our 20th anniversary. I researched and decided on the Inn at Corolla Light. We were on a limited budget, so reluctantly we decided against the higher priced sound-view room. What a nice surprise to find we'd been upgraded! Our view was spectacular! We loved the hot tub, the sunsets, the fireplace in...

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. If you are traveling to...

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...

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...

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.
