About Janet Dziewanowski

Welcome to the Fishbowl!!! Dan and I (Janet) have been married for 36 years. We have 5 children, 3 son-in-laws and 7 adorable grandchildren. You will see photos of us throughout the house if you decide to rent The Fishbowl. Whisper is our crazy, loveable Border Collie. We were both born and raised in the state of Maryland and we still reside there in Parkton which is close to the PA line. Our last three children were all born a minute apart which makes them triplets. Daniel, Nicole and Kaitlyn are 25 now and they love to vacation with us in the Outer Banks.

Janet Dziewanowski purchased this house in 2013

Why Janet Dziewanowski chose Corolla Light

When Dan and I walked into the Fishbowl we knew it was the right house for our family. We vacationed with our large family to the Outer Banks many times and we stayed in a variety of rental houses. This one just called out to us. If you want your privacy you can find a private place. If you want to be with the crowd you can join them in one of the many locations available for large gatherings such as the great room, the pool, or in the yard by the pond. We loved the location of the house. Being in Corolla Light is an advantage because of all the amenities it has to offer and we love being so close to the wild pony tours. Dan loved the kitchen for cooking his delicious homemade breakfasts and I loved the idea of choosing to swim in my own private pool or one of the many pools Corolla Light has to offer. We love The Fishbowl and we hope you will love it too.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location!!!! We think our house is located in one of the best areas since we are part of the Corolla Light resort and we can enjoy all the amenities it has to offer. My grandson's favorite spot is our private pond where he catches and releases fish all day. He even thinks the turtle in our pond comes to see him when we are here and he nicknamed him Big Snappy. Our granddaughters love to swim. They go from our private pool to the beach then back to one of the community pools. I love that the house is big enough to host multiple families yet we can go to our rooms for private time if necessary. Dan and I purchased new flat screens for all of the bedrooms and we bought a WII gaming system to use on rainy days. The Fishbowl offers something for everybody. Come see for yourself. We know you will love it!!!!!

From water sports to watching a quiet sunset on the sound, Welcome to the Fishbowl has everything needed to capture great vacation memories. Paddle a kayak or a canoe in the sound in the early morning then head to the beach in the afternoon. Take a wild pony tour later on in the evening. Eat at one of the many fine restaurants or cook a delicious meal in. Read a book by your own private pool or play organized games with a group at the beachfront community complex. There is so much you can do that your family will be begging you to come back the next year. We would love to have you stay with us year after year. Don't forget to come to the beach in the off-season, especially around holidays. Corolla Light always has planned activities for your family and the town is much more tranquil then. Our warm fireplace will keep you cozy. We hope to see you soon at Welcome to the Fishbowl. We look forward to sharing our house with your family.

Simply the Best!!!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say about Welcome to the Fishbowl! My family, dogs included, had the best vacation at this beautiful, family-friendly home last year. It was our first trip to the Outer Banks and we can't wait to return.

This home has everything you can ask for. Family members who have gone to Corolla for 30+ years visited us while we were there and loved it! Said they have never had such a well-equipped home - they were so jealous!

It is such a beautiful property and the owners offer that special, personal touch. I only have a couple issues... the cleaning staff isn't the best, but we had no problems, some left behind trash but it very well could have been an oversight, those people have so much work to do! Wasn't worth complaining about. The mattresses on the middle floor aren't the best, but they are fixing things in the house and things take time.

Now, here is my BIG issue...we failed to reserve the house for this September and it is rented!!! Trying to find a house that compares to the Fishbowl is impossible for us!!! Jealous of the lucky family who will be there :)

Thank you for such a fantastic vacation home!!!!

Welcome to Corolla Light Resort which where Welcome to the Fishbowl is located. The resort is the only one on the Outer Banks that offers activities for the whole family, an indoor Sports Center, and of course, access to the beautiful beach. A trip to the Outer Banks isn't complete without going on a wild pony tour or taking a 4WD on the beach. Take a hike up to the top of Currituck Beach Lighthouse, then visit historic Corolla Village which is nearby. Enjoy a stroll in Currituck Heritage Park where many festivals are set up for your enjoyment. The Whalehead Club is another place you won't want to miss. There are various sound side activities that you might enjoy such as fishing and crabbing. We have a pond located next to our house where we enjoy catching and releasing the fish. There are many ponds located throughout the Corolla resort where you can also fish and release. Don't forget about all of the water sports available. Go parasailing or hop on a jet ski. Take a canoe or a kayak and paddle along as you enjoy the wildlife. Tour the Audobon Pine Island Sanctuary and the Wild Horse museums. If you like to shop, you will love the specialty and gift shops in the area. About a half an hour away you must take a drive to Kitty Hawk and visit the sand dunes where you can fly a kite or roll down the dunes. A must see is the Orville and Wilbur Wright Flight museum which is also located in Kitty Hawk.

If you are a home body and you want to enjoy the amenities that Welcome to the Fishbowl has to offer, start with a nap in the hammock then take a dive in our private pool. Play bumper pool in our game room or challenge your family to a game of your choice on the WII. Cook a meal on the grill or order in. Take a walk to the soundside pier and enjoy the beautiful sunsets which are breathtaking. Take a short walk to the sports complex and choose from one of the many amenities which are provided there for your enjoyment. Start with a swim in the Olympic size pool then take a dip in the hot tub. Get some exercise in the workout room or lift weights in the weight room. Play racket ball, volleyball, tennis, or ping pong. Visit the sauna after play time is over.

Don't forget to visit the outdoor pools that are available for your use throughout the community. Start at the beachfront resort where there is so much you can do. Shuffleboard, basketball, beach volleyball, tennis courts, bocci ball, horseshoes, and a playground are included in your choice of things to do. Take a dip in one of the three pools and grab a bite to eat at the snack bar or restaurant. Access to the beach is right there for your convenience.

Whatever you decide to do Welcome to the Fishbowl is the vacation place to be. There are miles and miles of beaches and plenty of other things to do including lots of shops and restaurants, fishing, and water sports. We hope you choose our vacation home. We love hosting you and your family as you enjoy Corolla and the Outer Banks. Hope we hear from you soon. Happy vacationing.!!!!
