The only cottage of its size in Whalehead/Corolla, and we always enjoy our stay at First Light. It is a property in fair condition, so renters should know this going-in. That said, it provides everything a small family or couple would need. Across the street from the beach, central location to shops and restaurants (Food Lion less than 2 miles from the home). A view of the ocean from the master bedroom and upper decks. And, dog friendly!! The property management company is very good to work with. The price is right for those of us who aren't looking for perfection. Please note, when we stayed there was no dining room blind or curtain, as mentioned in other reviews. We placed a sheet over the window with rubber bands to the rod holders to nestle into place. Totally filtered out the brightness so we could use this space.

This property is in the perfect location. It does need some updating and a few more kitchen utensils to make it more accommodating for a weeks stay. I love that it’s pet friendly and it’s so close to the beach.

Had a great vacation even though the house needs updated. Had 2 damaged bedroom doors, no blind on dining room window so it was hard to sit on side of table facing outside, all other windows had a blind or curtain. Not enough silverware, had to wash what was used for breakfast and lunch to have to use at dinner. No toaster.

The pictures online are deceptive. This house is very outdated and neglected. The location is fantastic and in a lovely neighborhood. This is the worst house in the area. The lawn has not been maintained and is overgrown. Although clean, the inside of the house needs updating including the mattresses. It's been three weeks since my family's vacation ended and my husband and I still have sore backs from the terrible mattresses. It looks like the owners are trying to sell this place, but have not made attempts to make it a comfortable for renters or attractive to buyers. Also, the internet connection is not reliable and old. We had to buy an adapter to boost the Wi-Fi in order to use the Internet.

The property is located very close to the beach, closer than other properties we've visited before. The upstairs bedroom has the perfect view of the sunrise in the morning. The grass and shrubbery did make it difficult to walk our dogs in the yard, but we were happy to have our animals along for the trip!

It was adequate. We understood it would be older cottage with no fancy amenities. However, kitchen totally disorganized with pots and pans etc just thrown in cabinets. Carpeting needs replaced, furniture in bedrooms very low as if made for little people, blankets thrown in cupboard which made me question whether they were washed. Outside lot not taken care of, dead tree, weeds etc. Does not fit in the neighborhood as not being maintained very well. Fire hazard in laundry- flammables close to furnace and hot water tank. As said, it was adequate for the price. Very close to the beach access was a big plus.

The house was clean but beds are terrible. Rental agency should go thru houses once a year to let owners know what needs replaced. Good location. Trees need trimmed out front so you can see traffic coming on road. Lots of dishes and cookware. Relaxing vacation. Washer needed replaced and rental agency was very quick with new washer. If it had better beds would probably return.

The house is in a perfect location- merely steps from one of the most beautiful beaches on the Outer Banks. The house is in desperate need of updating and the carpets need to be cleaned or taken out . The air quality in the house is poor and we had sinus issues all week. There was definitely a smell of mold throughout and I purchased air fresheners in order to mask the smell. The yard is completely overgrown and obscures the potential for a nice ocean view on the second level. The steps leading up to the second level need to be replaced as there are nails popping and the steps are worn out. The small patio off the MB does not have any seating so it is not useable as a place to sit and relax. The blinds in the MB which cover the large sliding doors need to be replaced with room darkening blinds - the sun is strong and blinding in the early morning and makes the room quite warm.

Just what we were looking for. The location is ideal as it is away from the crowds, quiet , and right on the ocean. Waking to a sunrise and the sound of the ocean every morning really resets your psyche, and recharges the spirit.
Dear Bob,
We are delighted you had such a marvelous time staying at FIRST LIGHT!
Isn't this a great OBX vacation home? We think so!
