"Great week at OBX. The house was amazing. Only issues : mattresses were squeaky, outside shower was gross/dog hair everywhere; outdoor hoses did not have sprayers and bikes needed chain locks. the Shrouts."

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."

"We drove from VT for Thanksgiving with our entire family. Right from the first e-mail Ernie was a pleasure to deal with. We loved the location, the hot tub, the two fridges, the two big tables and the layout of the bedrooms. We took a short walk to the beach and took a great family photo. We also were a short ride from the part of the beach that is open to vehicles. My husband got an amazing photo of the wild horses which is now hanging on a canvas in our dining room. Ernie mentioned before we arrived the hot tub may not be working, but he would try to get it going before our arrival. Ernie worked really hard to get it running perfectly. He knew we really wanted to use it during our stay.
Pebble Beach is a great beach rental, very large house, and the basement had great game tables for the young and old AND it was a great price."

"This townhouse in Corolla Light was lovely and exactly as described. I was a little hesitant about staying in a townhouse, worried that it would be too small for our group of 7. However, it was spacious and well-designed, and never felt cramped. The neighborhood environment was great for the older children (ages 13 & 11), allowing them to have some freedom to walk to the pool and beach themselves. It is a very clean, safe neighborhood environment, with many different activities and shopping within walking distance.
Jay, the owner, could not have been kinder or more accessible. He has done a great job of maintaining the home, and puts a lot of effort into making it a great vacation spot. I would definitely return to this home in the future."
