Perfect family reunion spot!
Our family of 9 converged from across the country to celebrate an 80th birthday. Beacon of Light was perfect for us. With 9 adults we had very specific requirements...beach nearby, big beds and private baths, pool, parking for 5 cars, separate "get away" areas. The elevator was a bonus for the older folks. We walked on the beach, saw beautiful sunrises, grilled outside, got in the hot tub, played cornhole, relaxed in the pool, had plenty of room in the kitchen, made margaritas with the machine and more. The ice maker was great. We took group surfing lessons and paddleboarded with Gary and his colleagues from Corolla Surf Shop. Highly recommend this! We rented a golf cart from Ocean Atlantic Rentals. The beach is about 3 blocks away but you can easily drive in a minute and park. The grocery is an easy 3 miles away. This house is outfitted with literally everything you could possibly need. It is part of the Corolla Light resort so there is access to the fitness club (very nice and close) as well as oceanfront pool and restaurant. The area is fairly quiet which we liked. It was a real pleasure to work with the owner Lynn. We would definitely return.
House and everything in it was kind of out dated
The house itself was beautiful but was not cleaned well and we were not provided towels as promised. Fortunately the owner took care of any issues we brought up and gave us a coupon to a near by deli for our troubles. The hot tubs which is located on the 3rd deck temperature gauge was broken so we could not tell what temp the water was set at. The house has 3 levels of deck with no way to get from 1 level to another without having to go through the house which means you can't get from the hot tub to the pool. Some portions of the decks you have to go through another persons room to get to. The house says it is a 5 minute walk to the veach but it is actually about 10 and thats just to get to the beach access not the beach itself. It is a very nice housr but the layout could use a lot of work and some if the essentials could be updated that being said we had a wonderful vacation but probably would not choose to stay in this particular house again
As I mentioned to you, we have fired that cleaning company and I thought we had resolved the issues with the towels. I gave you the code to our owners closet so that you could get fresh linens that day. In our many phone calls, we were never told about the broken temptature gauge on the hot tub, so we couldn't have our pool guy check it on his two visits to the house.
I am very sorry you were not pleased with the layout of the house. The description on the website very clearly states that the stairs do not go down to all levels, which is a wonderful safety feature if you have guests that wander. The access to the front porch is the only bedroom you have to go through to get to a deck.
We made every effort to rectify the problem with our professional cleaning company, who we pay a great deal to so that our guests get the house they expected.
I am puzzled at you gave us three stars when you stated you had a wonderful vacation, the issues with the layout were clearly stated in the description and we bent over backwards to rectify the cleaning issues.
House was great. Plenty of room for everyone. Pool was very nice too, really enjoyed tiki bar!🍻🍷
First time ever to OBX, loved it! Would definitely recommend this house and a vacation in Corolla!
We had an amazing time and we will definitely return. Perfect for our family. Thanksgiving was perfect!
Fantastic OBX Vacation
Beacon of Light is a great property to rent for a vacation in the OBX. I have rented several houses and this one has everything you could want and more. In our group we had 8 adults and 9 kids (all 5 and under) and we had more than enough room. We never felt like we were jammed in tight or running into each other. There are spaces to retreat if needed; a few sitting areas, seating on any of the decks outside or the hammock. The four leather chairs on the top floor was a favorite place to relax and watch the kids run around. The kitchen is very well stocked with any utensil you could want, and was roomy enough to have a few people in there prepping meals or cleaning up after. The pool was amazing and looks pretty cool with the black concrete stone on the floor. We did a couple night swims and with the lights gives the pool a cool vibe. The grassy area in the back was great to have. We played corn hole and bocce ball and sat at the tiki bar having a couple drinks while kids "mowed" the grass with the bubble mowers. Having the ice machine and ice on demand was key and a drink never went cold. The beach isn't too far away. We drove everyday we went to the beach and parked in the public parking on Shad Rd or got lucky and parked at the ocean front pool. The house has lots of umbrellas, beach chairs and beach carts. Being a part of Corolla Light was a nice perk. We used the ocean front pools as relief from the beach for the kids or to grab a quick snack or drink. Lynn was easy to work with and responsive to our questions. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone!
Our family had a wonderful time at Beacon of Light. The house is wonderful and had everything we needed, down to beach chairs, umbrellas and beach cart! The kitchen is well stocked too! Can't think of anything that we needed and couldn't find. The house location is fantastic! A short walk to the beach, a short walk to the sound, ice cream right across the street from ice cream, which was a nightly outing and the perfect view for 4th of July fireworks (we had a perfect view from the front porch!). Our time was so perfect that we are hoping to make it an annual event! Thanks Lynn for sharing this wonderful home with us!
