                        We had a very nice time this past wk at this property. It's one of the nicest we've stayed at in the price range which is our typical price range. It was just my husband, myself and our Sheltie/Aussie mix. We enjoyed the property including the pool, the airy and spacious upstairs and fully stocked kitchen and washer/dryer, great wraparound 3rd floor deck (and there's a 2nd floor deck) and the quiet and friendly neighborhood. The info sheet had good suggestions from the owners and communication via email was quick and efficient. The property is not the *most* modern as previously mentioned, but like I said, we've stayed in much more dated and older properties and you can tell on the repainting and updated kitchen etc. The owners definitely care about it and their guests and we'd consider going back next yr if we can (have a baby on the way :-) Really appreciated the pet friendly vibe of the beach (leashed dogs always allowed), dog friendly neighborhood and the OuterBarks "yappy hour" in Duck. The beach is 2-3 blocks from the house. We enjoyed the following restaurants - Steamers, Agave Roja, OBX Coffee, Lighthouse Bagels, Cosmo Pizza and SunFish Grill - most within walking distance! Also a good Thai restaurant in Kitty Hawk - Villa Thai. Nice shopping center with mentioned restaurants and miniature golf, other shops within walking distance along w/Food Lion and there is a great Harris Teeter up the road!

                        Recommended for: Families with teenagers, romantic getaway, sightseeing, age 55+, families with young children, pet owners.

                        Owner response: It was a pleasure having you and your family, we hope you will return again soon after the delivery of your child. Congratulations! Thanks again so much for your time and feedback!

                        This is a decent rental property that is adequately sized for a single family. The home is moderately well-kept. The furniture, bedspreads, and carpets are in need of refreshing. And the electronics are dated. The home was painted recently, which was a plus. The bathroom/kitchen fixtures and cabinetry are modest and some could use updating and repair, especially in the master bath, which showed water damage. Many of the screens on the sliders were broken or damaged. The pool is nice and had a lot of furniture and toys for the kids. All in all, if you're not super picky about appearances, this house is a good deal for the money. There are great extras here: access to the Monterey Shores resort pool, good for arrival and departure days!; extra beach chairs; an awesome radio flyer wagon; and tons of buckets and shovels. The location can't be beat for the $$. It's a short and easy walk to the Whalehead beaches - straight shot to the public access and walking distance to the Food Lion. The owners are great to work with and quick and responsive.

                        Recommended for: Families with young children.

                        Owner response: Thank you so much for your insight and providing us with constructive guidance for improvements. We purchased Our Little Lighthouse 4 years ago and each year have budgeted improvements. In 2010 we made upgrades to the pool, outdoor deck and furnishings, and added new carpet. In 2011 we completely renovated the kitchen with new appliances, flooring, cabinetry, countertops, etc. In 2012 we installed all new light fixtures on the exterior and interior, had the exterior painted and installed new sink fixtures. In 2013 we painted the entire interior with beautiful beach open airy tones. Our 2014 goal is to further our interior enhancements with beach themed bedrooms & upgraded décor, also we plan to upgrade the bathrooms, and add flat screen updated electronics. Our cottage has been a favorite affordable respite for many families and we have been fortunate to have numerous families return every year. Our guests often share with us how much they love the open feel of the vaulted ceilings, the views, the large pool, and the comfort of our cottage. Every year we invest time and funds to make Our Little Lighthouse even better for our return and new guests. Thanks so much again for sharing with us how we can enhance future guests stays.

                        Great location and great little house. This is our second time back and Bridget has been wonderful to work with. The house is the perfect size, very well kept, and walking distance to the ocean and shopping. Can't wait to go back again this year!

                        The lay-out of this house is very nice--location of the hot tub, lots of decks, great pool, big & airy living quarters and very comfortable (4) bedrooms. It was our first trip to Corolla and the location is very good--very near shopping and a short walk to the beach. So great that the big grocery store is open 24 hours! We were looking for a 3 or 4-bedroom house--we have five in our family. We did not bring our dog, but maybe next time. Only problem is that there were only a couple of candle stubs when we lost power during a big storm (we must remember to bring a couple of flashlights next time) and all the board games in the house were ruined. The owners were very nice via email & we recommend this house. Corolla is a terrific place to visit & the local sights were great fun. We used everything in the house--pool toys, barbecue grill, washer/dryer, great kitchen with everything you could possibly need, computer with internet, CD player, hammock, it was all great.

                        Recommended for: Romantic getaway, sightseeing, age 55+, families with young children, pet owners, girls getaway.

                        We just arrived home from staying at "Our Little Lighthouse" and we want to go back. We had 4 adults and 6 children and the house was perfect for us.The pool and hot tub are great and the walk to the beach/shopping center takes 5 minutes.We fell in love with the area and the home and will definitely be staying again ASAP. The owners are wonderful to work with and very gracious as well.Make sure to go see the wild horses while your there it was amazing and the beach is beautiful. Nothing negative at all on our trip other than it rained a couple of times. You will not be disappointed !!
