Perfect Beach Get-Away
"Our family of 20 and 3 little ones rented this amazing house as a surprise XMAS present for our parents. We were not disappointed as it is everything it claims to be. We enjoyed the seclusion and privacy from all the trees around the property, yet were only a short distance from the beach, the golf cart was a big bonus. Everyone enjoyed the pool, the lighthouse views, and just having fun in the sun. The wild horses are only a mile down the road and we went to see them many times, the house is also in close proximity to dining and shopping. The only drawback (and they were both minor) was that some of the chairs on the decks were cracked and broken and there was only one skillet for cooking. The kitchen is quite large and accommodating with two refrigerators for a large group , and you'll get plenty of exercise going up all the steps to get there. Again, I can't say enough wonderful things about our stay, other than after a week you have to leave; but we have many happy memories that are ours to keep. Thanks Sherrie for sharing Blackbeard's Treasure!"

"As usual, our vacation at "Wish you were here" was fabulous. The house is immaculate, very we'll equipped, and the "perfect" location! My favorite is the pool & hot tub with mini-fridge on pool deck. We also enjoyed pool basketball and the bicycles. Julie, the owner called the first evening to make sure that everything was okay. A very nice touch!!"

"Awesome condo, easy walk to the beach, pool, basketball courts, playground, shuffleboard, and beach volleyball. We could walk home for lunch. Great resort. Owners called within 1 hour after we ran into trouble with an AC repair guy. spacious 4 bedroom and can't wait to go back!! Very comfortable living space, beach chairs and toys in garage."

The property manager was more than helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was very happy with the location.
I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
My husband and I stayed here with our four kids ranging in ages from one year old to twelve years old. The location was great. It was about two blocks away from a beautiful beach. Being in the Corolla Light resort was also great because it gave us access to the Sports Center which included an indoor pool (which was fabulous on the colder days!). The unit itself was clean and updated. There was plenty of room for our party of seven people. There is a big room downstairs with two bunk beds! Perfect for our kids! The owners had also stocked things very well. It was odd to have to bring our own towels and paper products, but not a huge deal. The rental company was good for the most part. However, I called the day before check in to see if there were baby items in the unit. We were hoping not to have to bring a port a crib, booster seat, and stroller. The agent didn't know what was in the unit and couldn't be bothered to make a quick phone call to find out. So, she said since nothing was guaranteed to be there we should assume it wasn't. Well, all of those things were provided by the owner. So, I wasted a ton of space in our car bringing them! I was NOT pleased. We also had some unpleasant exchanges with that same agent in the beginning when we arrived and one of the AC units was not working. She was more concerned with not inconveniencing the repair person than her renters. They did ultimately have the unit replaced during our stay though, and everyone else we worked with was very kind and understanding. The television was large, but a bit confusing to operate (and my husband is super tech savy). But really, the unit definitely met expectations. Corolla was a nice, quiet place to stay. We definitely enjoyed our stay."
