About Gene

We've travelled the world - but when it comes to the beach - Corolla Light is it!

We have been very fortunate to have discovered these beaches years ago - and thoroughly enjoy sharing them with both newcomers and regulars alike.

Our family (of 4) love the combination of relaxation (sunning) and activity (biking, jogging, walking) Corolla Light affords us. We hope you too will find this the perfect vacation location.

Gene purchased this house in 2004

Why Gene chose Corolla Light

We have enjoyed the beautiful beaches and serenity of the northern outer banks for 30+ years. Corolla Light offers everything one could imagine for a stress free beach getaway. The resort is the very best on the outer banks. Our children have spent their summers here for years.

Our dream of beach home ownership became a reality in 2004 with the purchase of 'One Grand Whim'! She has been a labor of love and extensively renovated since our purchase.

What makes this house unique

The Corolla Light amenities are 2nd to none. Corolla Light has been named the resort community of the year 10+ years running. Indoor and outdoor tennis, indoor and outdoor pools, raquetball, fitness center and planned childrens activities make this a very special place!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We love your decorating and the kitchen is so well stocked. We had some great meals! So sad to go back home ... if only summer could last forever.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great home - great resort. Two families with kids ranging from 8 - 20. Proximity to restaurants/shops a plus. Resort amenities kept kids busy and happy. Would definitely rent again.

Amazing Wedding - Scott and Elena McGrew

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights with our closest friends and family in this beautiful property. We wanted to have a very small wedding at the beach followed by a barbecue in the house. We were twelve people in total and there was enough space for everyone both in terms of sleeping and dining.The property was in excellent condition. The house is beautifully decorated. We loved the expansive decks and the outdoor furniture was in perfect condition. The view from the house is really nice, especially if you manage to wake up early enough and catch the sunrise. The beach was less than a couple of minutes away! The water was warm and the weather was gorgeous even in the end of September! There were not many people vacationing at the time, which gave us privacy for our beach ceremony. The house is in better condition than what it is shown in the photos! Every room was clean and nicely decorated. Amenities were sufficient to accommodate our group of twelve. The internet was a bit slow, especially in the downstairs bedrooms, but since we didn't really need to stay connected for these days, it was not an issue. We had a lot of fun with the boogie boards and bikes that were available at the house. There were also beach umbrellas and chairs, which made our beach time even more pleasant and relaxing. The key-less entry was another benefit, since our guests arrived at different times. We are very grateful to the owner, who let us rent the property and was very helpful! Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home! We had a great time and a perfect wedding! We would highly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a cozy accommodation just minutes away from the ocean, especially for the people who enjoy the tranquility of a September vacation!
