Why Friday to Friday Rental?

1. No Traffic of Fridays. 95% of rental turnover days are Saturday and Sunday. Traffic arriving and departing the outer banks of NC is horrible on Saturdays & Sundays. 120 miles of NC coastline and barrier island vacationers from North and South converge into one highway (Rt 168 & Rt 12 ). Bumper to bumper traffic coming in and going out is normal.

2. You don't waste 2 weekends traveling. Friday to Friday gives you a chance to have guest for a full weekend.

3. Friday to Friday rental gives you a weekend at home to recoup before you go back to work!

4. Fridays at the grocery store are quick & easy versus long lines, crowds and low selection on Saturday and Sunday

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We are a Richmond, VA area family who have spent more than 45 years vacationing on the outer banks of NC. We first started visiting Carova back in the 60's. Although there are more homes than in the past, (still very few) the area remains largely unchanged. We hope it stays that way. Of all the places we have visited, we choose Carova Beach to build our dream home in 2006. We enjoy sharing our home with guests so they can experience the wild horses, (aprox herd of 90 horses), beautiful beach with awesome ocean waters and the laid back feel.

Why the Owner Chose Carova Beach:
We built our custom home in 2006. We began renting the house in 2007 with a Big Box realty company until we found that they were not the answer for our guests and our house. We now have a great local caretaker who knows our home and is available to better serve our guests. FRIDAY to FRIDAY rental = NO TRAFFIC.
