Carova Beach house description

Come stay and play at 'Meant To Be, ourSsandcastle by the Sea. ***New For 2014; leather sofas, carpeting and wood flooring. Located eight miles up the beach from the end of highway 12 and ACCESSABLE ONLY BY 4WD, awaits a place that exists somewhere lost in time. You'll awake to Carova's wild horses grazing on sea oats amongst the sand dunes. Watch the dolphins frolic up and down the ocean jumping and splashing and feel your worries wash away. Then take a stroll along the beach to find sand dollars left from the changing tides. See the beautiful sunset over the sound before looking up to see the milkyway in the Carolina night sky, then let the ocean sing you to sleep.

Come experience all these things that are unique only to the Northern Beaches of the Outer Banks. You will love all that 'Meant To Be' has to offer you as your vacation home. The ocean views from the upper deck and the ship's watch beckon you to stay and lose yourself in the enchantment of these beautiful beaches. The top floor has an elevated ship's watch with hardwood floors and fantastic ocean views. The great room opens to wrap around decks with ocean to sound views.

After you finish watching the horses and dolphins, take a stroll along False Cape State Park to shell for sand dollars and whelks and enjoy the natural beauty of the undisturbed beaches. Try your luck at surf fishing and crabbing or enjoy just sitting and watching the pelicans fish. Spend the day shopping in Timbuck II or in the town of Duck then enjoy one of their many fine restaurants. Climb the Currituck Light House. Take a drive South on Highway 12 to Hatteras Island and Hatteras Lighthouse and enjoy the over 70 miles of undeveloped National Seashore.

Continue south and ride the ferry to Ocracoke Island. Visit Roanoke Island and the North Carolina Aquarium. Take a chartered fishing trip from Oregon Inlet, known for some of the best fishing along the Atlantic Coastline. Play a round of gold at the Currituck Club. Take an adventurous kayak or ATV tour. Or just relax on the beach or by the poolside and soak up the day. Don't forget to watch the absolutely beautiful sunset over the sound before you look up to see the milkyway in the Carolina night sky and then let the ocean sing you to sleep.

An extra large kitchen offers two dishwashers and is fully stocked with all amenities. The second floor has four bedrooms. The two masters opening to wrap around decks with two porch swings. The bottom level has one bedroom with full bath, a game room with a pool table and kitchenette. Outside, enjoy a large private pool and hot tub. Wish upon a shooting star while enjoying an evening in the hot tub. Come stay awhile and you will fall in love!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: Bill and I are native to Bucks County, Pa. We both grew up in the same town, went to the same high school and began dating when we were in college. We count our family and friends among our greatest blessings and love the simple life and being outdoors. We have two dogs who run to the car if they hear the word 'beach'. Like us, they love walking the beach and spending time at Meant To Be.

                  Why the Owner Chose Carova Beach:
                  We fell in love with Carova Beach the very first time we vacationed there. Nothing had ever felt so right, so we closed our eyes and purchased a lot after a couple years of vacationing on Carova and the rest was .....Meant To Be! We are blessed to have the opportunity to share our home with others the way someone once opened their door and allowed us to be a guest at their beautiful beach house.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Enjoy an early check-in (2:30) at no extra charge. Also, enjoy the use of our two seat ocean kayak with your rental. Please find an article written for The Staunton Daily News Leader in Va. by Nancy Sorrells...... Carolina's 4x4 shores are hidden treasure:Sometimes the greatest hidden jewels of getaway trips are found almost in your own backyard. Such is the case with Carova on the northernmost Outer Banks of North Carolina.From the end of the road there are 10 miles of pristine beaches until you hit the Virginia line. And finally at about the eight-mile mark is Carova, where our secret fall getaway awaits in a grand house called 'Meant to Be.'Carova, the northeasternmost point of North Carolina, is in Currituck County. If you want miles of unspoiled beaches, wild horses wandering through your yard (or breaking through your fishing lines) then head to the 4x4 beaches. But remember, although there might be several hundred homes scattered along this 10-mile stretch of barrier islands, there is no other sign of civilization. No stores, no restaurants, no hotels, and, of course as previously mentioned, no roads.Make no mistake, however, when we head to 'Meant to Be' we are not roughing it. Rather we are just ratcheting down the hectic pace of life. We load up on groceries so we don't have to go anywhere. 'Meant to Be' has a fully equipped kitchen, a Jacuzzi, big screen TV (with cable), a fireplace and beautiful decks with sweeping views of the ocean. ' I think if our dog could talk he would list the 4x4 beaches as the highlight of his life. If someone wants to take the dogs for a walk on the beach, what a walk it is. The dogs romp in the surf until they can barely walk and then they sleep the big dog sleep all night. An exhausted dog is a beautiful sight.
