Corolla Light Resort
Reviewed 5 August 2012

Come every year. Our house was wonderful. It included an elevator for lugging your luggage up and down. It was very clean. While it needed a few repairs, there was nothing that detracted from our experience there. The beach was fabulous, with a lifeguard right behind us. The pool area was a delightful retreat from the sand. The mid-week festivities like corn-hole, big-daddy splash, tie-dye t-shirts, and sand sculpture contests were fun. The fitness center is a reasonably appointed--even has indoor tennis courts. The trolley gets you everywhere you want to go there, so if the teenagers want to head back early or arrive late, they can. Tim-buck-II is 3 miles down the road along with a Food Lion grocery store that is open 24 hours. The beach north of the resort is open for 4-wheel drive vehicles and is a blast. It's a great location and a great vacation.

Room Tip: With easy access to the trolleys, there's no bad house in this resort.

Oceanfront pool, restaurant, and easily accessible beaches!! :). What more could u ask for?? My family had been vacationing in corolla light for over 10 years and has been our perfect getaway! We love the big beautiful beaches as well as having access to a pool just a few yards from the beach! Also some of our fav restaurants are located in corolla! Absolutely have to try the crab cakes at the oceanfront grill! They are the best I have ever had :)

We have rented from Brindley for many years. We even switched rental companies to try different homes but returned to Brindley once experiencing the other rental companies. We started with Brindley when they started as B&B in the '90's...always have been awesome! We love Corolla!

We recently stayed at Corolla Light Resort in Corolla NC. They have homes or villas to rent.
It is a very nice ocean front and sound side community. Shuttle buses are available within Corolla Light frequently. The resort has two pools & plus a baby pool, sand volleyball, shuffle board courts, and basketball courts, and they have a restaurant. You can rent comfortable beach chairs and umbrellas during your stay. (from a vendor right on the beach.) We enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning soon.

Room Tip: There are villas and homes to choose from, not rooms. Local realty companies handle various properti...

We checked in and notified Brindley Beach of a Pool Table that had broken pool cues - we called and they keep telling us the 'maintenance man' will bring them - no such luck and we are now almost 3 days into our vacation. Baby cribs have been in our front hall since we came in 3 days ago and after 3 calls to Brindley Beach they are still there! The pool had a leak in it and we lost over a half day of use on a 90 degree plus day. They will 'YES' you to death and do nothing. We will not rent from Brindley Beach again! A terrible experience for all involved at this house!

This is the 2nd year in a row my wife, daughter (18 months old), and I have stayed in this resort area. This year we rented the "Sugar Magnolia" property it was very nice with a pool, hot tub close to the shops, and not to far from the beach. Only complaint about the property is they could have come to clean the pool at least once during the week, They were there to clean the hot tub anyway, and it would have been nice if they would have swept out the pool. Never the less we will definitely return, great place to rent for a week with friends and family. Good food, bars, and shopping on site

Room Tip: Definitely try and stay on the ocean side inside the main community area. Also a house with a pool...
