We vacation here with our family and this resort has it all! Oceanfront pool complex with restaurant and bar; game courts of all kinds; sound front pool; sports center with heated indoor pool; gym; courts, hot tub. Very clean and landscaped! Great options for house rentals; condos, inn. Plenty to do even in poor weather.

Corolla light is wonderful, nothing but wonderful things to say about this "area" however, in our opinion it's best to stay far away from renting through Brindley Beach Rentals! Once upon a time they were great, but they have gone very far downhill. I try to keep most of our reviews upbeat, but occasionally an experience is so bad the... More

We had access to everything in the Corolla Light Resort including multiple swimming pools, tennis courts, basketball courts, and exclusive beach access. There aren't many things... More

I love this place. Beautiful senery. Right near the lighthouse. Nice amenities. Bay side pool was quite and ocean side was full of excitement. Plenty of activities for everyone. Beautiful bike trails. Even a indoor pool for raining days. Plenty of homes for everyone in every price range. Don't just go the obx. Go to Corolla light resort.

The house we stayed in (Corolla Belle) was beautiful and right on the beach. Corolla Light in general is well groomed, clean, and fun. We have a 1 year old, so we liked taking her to the outside pools and the playground. I took advantage of using the amenities like the gym and basketball courts. Our family had a great... More

We have been vacationing in Corolla for 18 years, and the majority of those stays have been spent in Corolla Light. We love everything about it....the amenities, the proximity to both soundfront and oceanfront activities, the beautifully manicured grounds, and the fact there are accommodations to fit any budget. We want three things on our vacation: a roof, beds, and... More
