              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: We are happy beach people who live in Carova for part of the year. We love the beach, we love our home, and we love our renters!

              Why the Owner Chose Carova Beach:
              Carova Beach is Definitely Paradise! It's the only place on the Outer Banks where the wild horses roam free. We love it when they visit our house. We love to relax and watch the dolphins from our bedroom deck every morning.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We love the wildlife, the shore birds, graceful pelicans, the marine life (we have even seen a couple of whales, as well as, our frequent dolphin visitors) fishing at the park and boat launch area nearby. We especially love our horses.
