Carova Beach cottage description

***The first week in June and weeks in May 2014 are still available at discounted rates ***

Carolina Inn My Mind is a unique beach cottage is located in the 4WD Wild Horse area called Carova (this is short for Carolina/VA) Once the paved roads end in Corolla, you will need to switch your vehicle into 4WD, enter this one of a kind wild life sanctuary and drive 9 miles up the beach to reach your destination. The wild horses are free to roam anywhere. That means that you will see them in the morning when you are having a cup of coffee on your back deck, on the beach in the afternoon catching an ocean breeze to stay cool or in the canals in the evening while you are having dinner in your screened in porch. The wild horses are not the only wild life that you will see during your visit to 'Carolina Inn My Mind' We love to watch the Osprey hunting, Heron stalking and fish jumping in the canal.

We will have a tandem kayak available for our guests to use. You will want to explore the beautiful canal system that is truly unique to Carova.

Use our kayak or bring your own watercraft (Seadoo, Carolina Skiff ect..), launch it at the public ramp and keep it secured to your private dock.

The middle floor has a master king bedroom w/private bath, canal view, tv and a private slider out to the rear deck with hammock. The queen bedroom will have a tv, canal view and a private slider out to the rear deck with a hammock. the Front bedroom will have 2 sets of bunk beds and share the bath with the queen. there is a laundry area and 2nd full size refrigerator with an ice maker.

                        Weather a couple of windy days, but we got lucky with a warm up in the weather. Being technically fall now, we were worried we wouldn't have any bathing suit weather, but we did & our skin is paying for it :). We brought a little jon boat and 2 kayaks, 1 of which was brand new and of course that was the one a horse decided to walk on, but the one scuff it left will always remind us of the amazing week we had :) We did a little bit of everything and enjoyed every second of it! I cannot say enough good things about the house! We were beyond impressed with this place. The house has such character and with all the creative touches we felt at home! If I had to make any recommendations for future guests it would be to keep in mind that the horses will walk (& poop) anywhere so be mindful with leaving items outside (especially at the dock at right) 1 horse even stepped on the crab pot when it was in the water and 1 stepped on the kayak paddle and broke the end, do yeah just keep that in mind. We are about 1 hour now from making our departure, unfortunately but we will be back, We are even thinking about buying a house here we LOVE it so much but til then we will most definitely stay here again :)

                        We had a great time! Lots of nature & horses to see! Between the pool, hot tub and ocean we were all wiped out in a good way! The hanging pirate was a little hard to get used to, but we did! Got lots of crabs from the neighbor! Thank you

                        Had a great time as always here in Carova. Saw the horses in the canal eating and swimming. The beach was great, water was awesome. Loved relaxing in the pool and hot tub. Met a few locals, Sean from Fin and claw will come to the house and steam crabs, clams, lobster - EXCELLENT!

                        We had a great time! Such a peaceful area - a pleasure to be away from crowds. Very relaxing. Horses were here everyday, promising many photo opportunities - everyone loved it! We wish we were staying longer. Kayaking every day too! The house is great- we had family diners here which was nice for a change - used to go out all the time. We loved everything- Hope to come back again.

                        We had a wonderful & relaxing time. We had wild horses almost everyday. We enjoyed the ocean, pool and hot tub. The guys caught some catfish and the kids got 3 blue crabs. It was great to be away from the commercial area. Everyone around was very friendly. We will talk about this vacation for a long time. We would all love to come back again.

                        We had a wonderful time here; horses were visiting us every day, which was just amazing to watch and we all enjoyed photographing them. Beach access was perfect and we all enjoyed the pool. The kids loved it (all five of them) and want to come back. If you are bringing a baby, confirm with the owner that the crib is on the premises. We didn't do this; assumed it was there, and the first night without a baby bed was tough. However, we did pick up the crib the next day at their other property. Other than that, it was a glorious time! The house is awesome....has everything you need. Would definitely come back here!!

                        This home is well equipped with everything you may need for your getaway. It is clean and the decor is adorable. The owners are easy to get in contact with and quick to fix any problems that may arise. The pool and hot tub were kept very clean and the kids had a blast fishing on the canal. It is very quiet and peaceful. Just a short walk or drive to the beach. We had a blast.

                        My family and I stayed at the Carolina Inn My Mind the last week of June. We loved it. True relaxation! The pool and jacuzzi were very clean and well maintained. The house was lovely. Our boys loved the crab pots that were out back at the dock. They wound up catching around 12 Blue Crab and 12 Brim, 1 Catfish and a turtle. The kayak was a nice addition. Easy to get in and out of. The only downside is , it is around 20-30 minutes to get to the hardtop road. We knew this going in and we packed and brought everything we needed. We didn't leave until Wednesday (day 5) to venture out. When we did we stayed out all day. You definetly will not run up the street to grab a soda. The last night we ordered from the 4x4 Beach Road pizza place. They delivered to mile marker 20. Food was good and beat having to fight high tide . Strong suggestion to drive during low tide. High tide you have to stand in the loose sand and it can wear you out. Another suggestion is to use Mile Marker 18 or 19 to get to the house. We saw a bunch of folks get stuck using the mile markers suggested by the home owners. We did fine since we had manual 4x4. If you have an AWD vehicle, or have traction control on your vehicle you will get stuck. Be sure to turn off your traction control and take air out of your tires. We saw TONS of horses everyday. They are amazing in the way they interact. Truly enjoyed the views. We couldn't see the ocean from the house but it was nice to be able to sit on the back deck and watch the kids fish, crab, swim etc ... We didn't even miss the view of the ocean. The hammocks and rocking chairs on the porches were very relaxing. There is a very strong odor in the water. It's all over Carova Beach and not just this house. Highly recommend drinking water. Our boys voted this the #1 vacation ever. We loved the peace and quiet this house brings. Kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes, silverware, etc... The homeowner was fabulous to work with. Any questions I had was expediciously answered. If you have questions all you have to do is pick up the phone and ask! We look forward to coming back to Carova Beach and Carolina Inn My Mind year after year. This is truly where memories are made!

                      Owner info

                      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
