  • Paradise

    "The rental was clean, roomy with all the necessities. The top living room/kitchen floor has two sliding doors and huge windows to enjoy the ocean view and the grazing wild horses. We enjoyed coffee every morning sitting on the picnic table provided on the top deck watching the sun come up. Appliances in the kitchen were up-to-date and the dishwasher provided a break in the dish drudge. The master bedroom has a nice, firm king size mattress. Two full baths on the bedroom level were convenient along with the half bath on the living room floor. There is an outdoor shower on the bottom deck with cold and hot running water to shower after a day on the beach. The owner provided a hose hooked up to a faucet so the beach equipment could be washed off and the sand and salt spray could be cleaned off our Suburban. Take binoculars so you can watch the horses, beach activity, and the ships going to and from ports in Virginia. This place is quite, remote and wild and we loved it. We learned to time our going in and out of the beach to town at low tides since it's easier to travel on a hard packed beach. Pack all your basics before leaving or purchase them in Corolla. Food, toilet paper, paper towels, dish and laundry soap, and Ice, don't forget ice to pack in our coolers for the beach. We didn't do this thinking we would go to the house, unpack, and then return to town for supplies. Be sure to leave early enough to manage the tides and supplies. We arrived late, dark, and at high tide and didn't want to risk traveling back that night. We received a special treat when we first arrived on the beach. A small herd of about 8-10 wild horses were walking in front of us apparently heading in for the night. It was almost like they were welcoming us and escorting us to the house. Don't forget to lower your tire pressure to 18 psi before entering the beach. We saw many stuck in the sand that didn't. The beach was well patrolled by the Sheriff's Department on ATV's and the three we encountered were very helpful and friendly. Our only disappointment this vacation was we had to leave Friday, a day early due to tropical storm Hermie arriving on check out day Saturday. With predicted sustained winds of 65mph and tidal surges we concerned about getting off the beach at the time of Hermie's landfall. The owner was very helpful with tips and clear directions. We highly recommend this rental and plan to return again and again."

  • Awesome property, very unique and lots of character.

    "A great place to stay and in an amazing location. Plenty to see and do just from walking from the Red Octopus. Corolla has a lot to offer and learned a good deal about the OBX. Absolutely one of our best vacations and Thanksgivings ever. Thank you for sharing your treasure."

  • Wonderful Trip!

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We had a very nice week at Lightly Salted! The house was as expected, the updates to the living area are well appreciated. The kitchen is well-stocked, though a few new pans would be a good idea, the current ones have seen better days. There was a musty smell right when entering on ground floor (which consists only of a bathroom and entry area), but it did not permeate beyond that area (kind of wonder if past guests have cordoned wet dogs in there, that's what it smelled like), so no big deal to me. We had one small issue which was quickly remedied by Laura, who also provided us helpful answers to questions we had before arriving. We enjoyed trying out the sleep number beds, still discussing whether we want to go that way next time we replace ours. The only complaint we had (and this is in no way related to the house) was that a LOT of people bring their dogs to this area and seem to think just opening their doors at 7am and letting the dog run out to bark under other people's windows is a great idea. It was a really annoying issue coming from several surrounding houses. Otherwise though, it was a relatively peaceful location. The house is situated such that you have some privacy, and a great view! Not a day went by without a dolphin show right in front of the house. We were very excited to also see a whale one day. Horses visited the house one evening (that we saw), but we saw horses every day while driving around the area. I definitely recommend driving both the beach and the neighborhood roads, start with the fire station area if you're looking for the horses! We would rent Lightly Salted again if we returned to the area. Recommended Corolla restaurants: Pasquale's pizza, Mama Easley's (the burgers!), and Uncle Ike's!"
