“Lou's not a dummy!!!”

Very nice house. Had everything we needed! Close car ride to the beach. Just wish the check in and out were not the hours they are...really paying for 5 days.

Response from the manager Thank you for your review; please pardon our tardy issues have just been resolved allowing us to post a response once again! We are pleased that you enjoyed your vacation! It is really difficult for all of the various vendors to address all of the needs that occur on change-over day during those few hours between departures and new arrivals, however I do see your point. Please stay with us again SOON!

Too many houses have been built and are being built for the roads used. There is usually a terrible traffic jam if people are leaving at same time. House I stayed in (Lou's No Dummy) was a mile from beach. Although there was a trolley provided, it was a major hassle to get to beach. I will not be staying at that particular house again.

Response from the manager Thank you for your comments; we sure do understand your frustrations regarding the amount of traffic going in and out of the northern beaches. We've been hoping for that mid-county the meantime we are encouraging our property owners in the Corolla area to consider a Friday turn day to help ease the congestion. Please come vacation with us again!

This was our first time visiting Corella and the Corella light resort. We had a wonderful time and would go back again. In fact we are already planning our next trip. PROs: The house is exactly as picture and described. It well maintained and clean. The inside swimming pool, spa, and tennis club is across the street. The sound side pool is a short walk. The trolley stop is around the corner but they are more than happy to drop you right at your front door. The house is on a cul-de-sac. We could bring our dog. There a small charcoal grill outside. The food lion, dunkin donuts, duck donuts, and deli are right down the road. The Corella light resort beach club is right on the beach with lifeguards on duty. All of the equipment for the basketball courts, volleyball, and shuffle board is well maintained and readily available. The staff is helpful and polite. It was very easy to sign up for activities and pick up is at the beach club. The beach is wonderful. The club is close enough to offer snacks and refreshments. Cons: The main road is very close to the back of the house. They have a living wall of trees and bushes but you can hear the cars. I am a very very light sleeper, so I had to move to the front bedroom, but slept fine there. The room with the bunk bed is in the basement with easy access to the outside. Lots of stairs in the house, FYI. The Corella light resort beach club is down the road a couple of miles. They stop running the trolleys at 7 p.m. but activities go till 9p.m Parking at the club is limited and very narrow if you have an SUV. You can park at the shopping center out front of the club and ride the trolley in or walk. They had limited activities for teenager, which I have. Must activities were for elementary school kids. Swim lessons, tie dye shirts, showing frozen on the beach, and parents night out. Stop in to Cosmo pizza and have a slice. The are the fastest and make good pizza. Everyone else you need to call an hour ahead of time. Like I said overall we had a great time. The family took surf lessons and paddle board lesson. I can't remember who the company was but they were wonderful. The instructor took the time to explain to the kids and everyone had a great time.

Response from the manager Thank you for your detailed review; I am sure this will be very helpful to others! We are pleased that you enjoyed your vacation and hope that you will vacation with Atlantic Realty again on your next OBX vacation!

The house was great. The resort was nice. Just wished the soundside pool had longer hours.

“Pretty Place”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2013

The house is clean and well appointed. With that said, I found the beds to be very hard. This does seems to be a common condition with beach houses. This particular home could also use a comfortable chair--there really is not a single comfortable chair. The sofas, while clean and visually appealing, are not friendly to an adult over 50 back. We really enjoyed the location. Atlantic Realty was very prompt repairing the one item that was broken when we arrived. All appliances functioned at or above expectations.

Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to post your comments; we appreciate both your time and the feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed your vacation and thank you for choosing Atlantic Realty for your accommodations. We agree that it is important to offer a comfortable mattress, even while everyone’s comfort level isn’t the same (The Three Bears and Goldilocks come to mind...ha!). Please come again!

“Great location- fabulous ammenties- needs some updating.”

Reviewed 31 Jul 2013

The Corrola Light Resort is great. Fabulous people, tons of things to do, enjoyable and relaxing atmosphere. The house itself could use some updates and replacement of things. The carpet for one, the master bath shower curtain is a little gross (should just be replaced with a door), and th kitchen drawers need to be cleaned. Also, the water in the outside shower was shut off. Other than that the house was really great. Fabulous location, reasonable price, beach stuff included, trolley to the beach and pools too was great. A short walk to the sound side pool and piers was also nice. We would come again for sure. Maybe more inclined with some new carpet. :)

Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to post your comments; we appreciate both your time and the feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed your vacation and thank you for choosing Atlantic Realty for your accommodations. I have forwarded your comments to the property managers to pass along to the owners. While we make suggestions for replacements/improvements to the owners during our pre-season walk-throughs, often it will take some complaints from the guests before they will take action! We hope that the carpet will have been replaced the NEXT time you vacation with us!

This was our 2nd time staying here and we look forward to the 3rd! The house is very clean and kept up. There are many kitchen and beach items for our use. The amenities that come with the house are fabulous! Our boys played basketball every night and the pool is wonderful! We love the outer banks and we love Lou's No Dummy! We will be back!!

The furniture was not very comfortable at all & looked like it was 30 yrs old. The kitchen has the "very basic" things needed, no modern day conveniences. The house definitely is in need of a deep cleaning (inside/out!) We knew going in this wasn't going to be a normal beach hoouse that we're use to but if the furniture was more comfortable, tv's in all the rooms w/the same cable, more appliances/gadgets in kitchen it probably would've been a better review. The Resort part of it was disappointing as well. Everything we wanted to do was an add on. The whole reason we stayed in Corolla Light Resort was thinking there would be more for the kids to do. If there was even anything for them, you had to pay extra. The trolleys should run longer than 6pm. We always were watching the clock to be sure we didn't miss the last trolley b/c we were a mile from our house. Had a nice time while we were there b/c we chose to but wouldn't go this route again.

The amenities porovided by the Corolla Light Resort really made the stay at this house enjoyable. There is no shortage of things to do, because you have equal access to the sound side and beach side.

“Relaxing and worth the drive”

Reviewed 8 Jun 2010

We unfortunately did not use the rec center across the street, would have liked it if it stayed open later in the pm. We wanted to take full advantage of the beach and my son really liked the pool at the oceanfront resort. The playground and outdoor sports courts were also a plus. Honestly, we liked the resort, but feel during summer season it would be over capacity and we wouldn't enjoy the crowds. We like the house and as I put on the paper copy I left, the beds were way too hard and the outdoor shower didn't work, but overall a nice comfortable place, would have loved a hot tub! thanks for asking.
