Corolla Light Resort
Reviewed 1 September 2017

Proven winner , needs some TLC , but is still a wonderful place for adults and children to enjoy the ocean.Indoor and outdoor pools for every age, beach chair and umbrellas available for rent, indoor and outdoor tennis and plenty of planned activities for youngsters. Plenty of dinning choices in the local area.Off season is an good value.

Room Tip: Choose from many rental companies

Resort was simply awesome. Something to do for everyone. We used the pools, ate at the restaurant and did a few activities. The beach was a blast. Our family consisted of 6 adults and 3 children. Ages from 3-64. We rented a house on Hampton Street and the outdoor Corolla Light Resort facilities were only a mile away. Trolley service was available and had limited parking for cars. Some of our family rented bikes and just rode on down. Would definitely stay here again.

First time my family stayed in corolla light and also the first time we rented a house through twiddy. We weren't disappointed. The house was beautiful and the resort was great. It really gives you the best of both worlds. The great obx vacation rental mixed with a resort style development that has a great community pool, mini golf, and sports facilities. We will definitely return again.

We recently rented a house from Brindley Beach Realty. Corolla was wonderful but dealing with Brindley Beach was a poor experience. Our TV did not work when we arrived and it took 4 days for resolution. They sent someone from Direct TV and we had to stay home for 6 hrs while they were there replacing the rusty dish and fixing the TV. None of the lights worked outside of the house. We called to have them fix them and they replaced one light and said the others did not work. We left a day early-we left my son's baby blanket on the bed. I called them before they even came to clean the house and asked them to keep it and I would pay shipping. After 8 days and 5 phone calls, they said they never found it. I would certainly return to Corolla, but not in any house from Brindley Beach.

What a super resort. There are large homes, smaller homes, and condos fro rent. Ours slept 12-14. There are numerous nearby activities and places to eat. The resort has multiple indoor and outdoor pools and plenty of ocean or soundside beach. There are staffed ativities all day long as well as a sauna, hot tub, work out rooms, a regular Wednesday morning 5k, putting greens, basketball, tennis, nature trails, and other activities. The trolley runs every 20 minutes. The trolley drivers are friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this resort.

Room Tip: This is a resort with rental homes. Each home has its own unique options and characteristics.

We have been coming to Corolla for 20+ years. We come in season and out. Corolla Light always delivers. Beautiful oceanfront and soundside pools. Indoor pool for bad weather. Tennis courts, racquet ball courts, bike trails, shopping, and dining... it has it all. Big houses, townhomes and condos... available. Shuffleboard and family games. It's a cruise ship on land. We use SUN Realty... professional and accommodating. It's great for all ages. Visit the wild horses when you visit.

We love Corolla Light and have rented there for years. Last year, however, management of the property we usually rented was transferred to Brindley Beach. They promptly lost our reservation, reinstated it after a series of phone calls, and lost it again. The second time, they rented the property to someone else before advising us, forcing us to change weeks and locations.

All of this was due to office incompetence at Brindley Beach. They sent notices to the wrong email address (spelling my name wrong), refused to acknowledge their error, and compounded it by doing it again!

Despite the hassle, we loved the house and advised BB that we would reserve it again for 2018. Now they have fouled up the reservation yet again, advising us that it was canceled for failure to respond to a request for confirmation which, once again, they never sent.

Corolla Light is a wonderful place for a family vacation, but dealing with Brindley Beach is a nightmare. I would avoid them at all cost -- rent a place at Corolla Light, but rent a place managed by another company. Minimal competence is not too much to ask.
