Carova Beach house description

FOUR WHEEL DRIVE VEHICLE REQUIRED. This off the beaten path retreat fronts the bay. The large grassy yard is great for playing and horsing around – watch out for the wild horses, they like the yard too! Head out onto the bay or take a gentle ride up the canal in one of the kayaks, canoes or the rowboat. Give fishing or crabbing a shot – or just relax and dangle your feet off the pier. Bask in the sun or cool in the shade while enjoying the view off the front or back deck. When it comes time to head to the beach, it’s a little over a half a mile as the crow flies, and a 15-20 minute walk (take the binoculars if you’re a nature enthusiast), or load-up all the trappings in your 4 wheel vehicle and park on the beach - convenient! ***Please note that this rents SUNDAY to SUNDAY. Avoid the traffic!***

We hope you'll enjoy this rustic get-away...: There are few areas left where you can enjoy an off road adventure and the peace and calm of still water while being within walking distance of the glorious Outer Banks beach. We've tried to make the experience as relaxing and hassle free as possible, including providing some of the essentials (toilet paper, paper towels, hand and dish soap, laundry detergent) and what we hope are toys to delight all ages. We'd love to hear from you with comments and suggestions.

              • The master bedroom is up circular stairs in the loft and is accessed from the main floor. It has a full bath and balcony, as well as TV and VCR. The room with the bunk beds is very small; I've found children often like the coziness of it. There is a living area with TV and VCR on this floor, as well as the kitchen and a full bath. The main decks are off this level. The bedroom on the bottom floor has a cot in addition to the double bed. You'll find a crib in the closet and high chair in the closet on this level. The futon in the den pulls out for relaxing while watching TV or playing video games, and the extra frig on this 1st level comes in handy. The bath on this level is shower (no tub), and the laundry facilities are through this bathroom....moreless
