This cottage is set in the 4wd or AWD area of the Outer Banks, known as Carova Beach - their are no commercial areas for 15 miles. It is a sparsely populated area with Wild Horses, sand roads & beach driving. Even though this cottage is a very short walk to the beach, you can load up your truck/suv and drive all of the heavy coolers, chairs, umbrellas and drive over the dunes and tailgate on the beach.
Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: We are from Coatesville, PA and have been traveling to the Outer Banks for 15 years. Our friend first built a house in Corolla 1995. We stayed there and would take day trips to the Carova Beach area. That is when we decided that we wanted to be there permanently. We were lucky enough to be able to build our first house in 2003 and then to be able to build our 2nd home on the canal in 2011.
Why the Owner Chose Carova Beach: If you want more to do at the beach then just go to the beach a canal front home is for you. You can fish/crab/kayak from your back yard. This home has a large ground floor decking to enjoy the canal
