  • Quiet and Clean

    "We've been vacationing at the beach for decades and this beach home has proven to be one of the most satisfying we've encountered. It's clean, just the right size with all amenities you could wish for. It has large decks providing incredible views and is in a quiet and relaxing section of Corova that's close to the beach but without many neighbors. This home is an all around great beach house that allowed us to thoroughly enjoy a much needed vacation."

  • Best Vacation Ever!

    "Our family really enjoyed this house and it's location. The owners made the rental process a breeze. I wasn't sure how I would like not being ocean-front or ocean-side, but we could not have asked for a better location. We spent our days on the beach and late afternoon and evenings at the pool. Our boys fished and crabbed in the canal everyday, and even floated around on rafts. The house is well equipped and it had everything that we needed. We enjoyed the game room and had pool and air hockey tournaments. We saw horses everyday, all day long. It was amazing to see them in the canal and even in the yard of the house! We would definitely recommend this house and look forward to staying here again in the future!"

  • Amazing place

    "We just got back from having a great vacation. The house was wonderful. We had a big group with a mix of family and friends which can sometimes be disastrous, but it work out great. Plenty of room for everyone to do your own thing. One couple brought down their boat and they did a lot of fishing all week. Even though we only had 3 days of sun on this vacation everyone had a great time. The pool was a lifesaver with the kids since the ocean was way to rough to swim in. Most of the people who came had never been on the 4x4 beach and they all had a blast driving on the beach. Remember let the air out of your tires. We did a lot of kayaking and went for a lot of walks to see the horses. They are everywhere so lots of good photo ops. It is neat to be that close to the beach and yet so secluded. If I had any advice to anyone planning on staying on the 4x4 beach it would be to bring a small air compressor with you it takes forever to fill your tires at the ones at the gas stations and on check out day you will be waiting in line. It took us about 45 mins to get our tires filled. Next year we are taking our own. All in all just an awesome time. Thanks Lisa for sharing your wonderful home."
