Corolla Rental Advice from Our Loyal Guests


Our Corolla Classic guests are the best on the beach – for more reasons than we can count! But what we appreciate is how encouraging our guests are. The feedback, reviews, pictures, and comments you send us are priceless! Recently, we asked our Facebook fans for advice they would pass on to “newbies” visiting Corolla for the first time. Here is a recap of some key points our fans made:

Book 10 to 12 Months in Advance to Get the House You Want!

This advice can be backed by our Reservations Department as well. Our user-friendly website allows you to select the amenities you desire and set the dates of your vacation to browse our collection. Once the list populates, you can see a slideshow and read a description for each of our Corolla rentals that met your criteria. We always recommend having a “backup” house in case the one you hope to book is unavailable. By beginning your search a year in advance, you have a better chance of getting your first choice home.

*CCV Tip: Each home can be booked a year in advance, as early as the TUESDAY after the desired week has passed. For a small holding fee, you can pre-reserve your vacation home. For more information on this process,  view our advanced reservations page, or just call our Reservations Department 866-453-9660

Go Oceanfront!

Imagine waking up every morning to the sight and sound of the sea – and enjoying your coffee while watching the dolphins play! With 52 oceanfront properties, this dream can become a reality and you’ll be soaking up the sun in no time. There are many perks to oceanfront living – private beach access, ocean view decks, unlimited views, the soothing sounds of waves crashing on the shore, and limitless tranquility. But all of our Corolla vacation homes are worthy of adoration, so be sure to take a peek at our semi-oceanfront homes, oceanside homes, and even our soundside homes! Most of these properties still have easy access to the beach and many great features.


Research the Floorplan and Layout!

Each Corolla home is beautiful and unique, and no property is created equal. When you are searching for a six bedroom home because you have six couples vacationing together, you might see some homes with four master bedrooms and two bunk bedrooms and others with six king and queen beds - so it's important to look at the layouts! We carefully describe each home and break down the bedroom configurations so that our guests can get a good feel for what the interior offers. You will want to research each home individually to determine the best bedroom configurations for your group.  

*CCV Tip: Call us!  We know our homes inside and out, and we know our guests. The more information you give us, the easier it is for us to find the best property for you!


Check Out the “Map”!

Each home is outfitted with a Bing Maps aerial view so you can see how close the neighboring homes are, how close the beach access is, and where the home sits in the neighborhood. While on the webpage for a home, select the “map” tab to see the blue pinpoint of your selected home. You can click and drag the map and you can zoom in and out. If you are unfamiliar with the lay of the land in Corolla, please call us!  We love being able to help guests find the perfect beach rental, and we can’t wait to share this little piece of paradise with you!
