Welcome to "Shore Nuff." We are glad you are stopping by. We hope you enjoy your stay. Our family has been coming to the Outer Banks for over 30 years, and we love the area. Corolla is one of our favorite areas,... and we have been staying in the Corolla Light Community for the past several years. We've stayed all over the island, but we found the Mirage complex very special because it's an easy walk to the beach, across from the year round indoor sports facility, and easy access to the sound for crabbing, kayaking, or breathtaking sunsets.
We purchased Shore Nuff in 2018. The unit had never been rented, but it needed some TLC. We are constantly trying to bring it up to date. For the 2020 rental season, we have replaced all kitchen appliances, both queen bed mattresses, and all electronics in the house. We are currently planning our 2021 updates, so please let us know if you see something that would make your stay more pleasant.
Enjoy your stay, and come back soon!

Trash is located on either side of the condo building. The blue bins are trash and the green bins are recycling. It does not matter which one you use. For your convenience, Corolla Light staff will move the bins on trash day, so there is nothing for you to do.

In the offseason, if you prefer to have the windows open, please turn off the thermostat. There is also a Nest temperature sensor in the living room for more accurate temperature readings.
There are hundreds of things to do in Corolla. We try to explain as much as we can on resort logistics and tips and also fun things to do that are somewhat off the beaten path. Check this out on the Things to Do page.

We've Cut the Cord
Streaming TVs in the condo
We've cut the cord and we aren't going back. After years of paying for subpar TV service and equipment from cable companies, we have set up live TV streaming throughout the condo. There are two TVs in the condo and each is equipped with an Amazon Fire. Each has a labeled remote. Be careful to not lose them, they are very small remotes and hard to find.
If you are new to cutting the cord, this will at least give you a chance to try it out.
