Relaxing Time at the Ocean

  • 4 of 5

Beach Box had most everything we needed. Nice and close to the beach, and we loved the wild ponies! We wanted a place away from the crowd, and Beach Box fit the bill!

Owner's Response: Glad you had a nice relaxing couple of days at the beach. The Beach Box is a great get-a way from it all, especially in the late fall.

Great getaway for our family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had the best time at this home and on the 4WD beach. It was nice to unplug from everything at home for a long weekend with our two kids (ages 4 and 2). The home's layout was perfect for our family. We enjoyed the short walk over the dune to the beach, weather was perfect, saw tons of wild horses and Dolphins really close in. We also enjoyed kayaking on the bay. Great vacation!!

Perfect location, beautiful home, even the dogs had a blast!

  • 5 of 5

This was just a dream of a vacation.. everything about it was perfect! The home is much smaller than surrounding homes which was exactly what we wanted. It is located 'a dune away' from the beach, which is a nice walk. There is one house closer to the beach but not close to the Beach Box as far as privacy goes. There is a large home next door but even still it is not on the deck-side of the house, so it is still private. Perfect for couples or small families. The inside is just as pictured, clean and beautiful, lots of windows. The deck faces the ocean, although you can't see it because of the dunes, its still very private and nice to lay out in the sun. or enjoy the hot tub at night. We saw the wild horses everywhere, on the beach, right outside the house, etc. Lots of walking trails around the 'neighborhood'. We brought our two dogs, they loved the beach & exploring the beautiful area.

To get to the house you must drive about 8 miles on the beach, you definitely need a 4 wheel drive vehicle and to let the air out of your tires. Even with 4 wheel drive we saw quite a few trucks and SUVs stuck in the sand, so just a warning. But being that far away from everything just adds to the peace and seclusion.

We highly recommend this home. The owner, Heidi, was a pleasure to work with too :)

Pure relaxation

  • 5 of 5

The location served all the necessities I was seeking for this vacation...remote, seeing the wild horses, beach walking, seeing dolphins, and just pure relaxation. The only thing we couldn't do was go out for dinner since beach driving at night could prove to be challenging and high tide may make the beach unpassable to the home; so instead we did day trips and cooked in at night. otherwise, everything was wonderful!

We'll Be Back!

  • 5 of 5

Our first experience at the Beach Box, Carova Beach will NOT be our last! The Beach Box was the perfect size for our family of 4 for a long weekend. A mere walk or drive over a sand dune and we were on the beach. The house was well equipped with everything we needed. LOVED the hardwood floors! Even though we had rain for 2 days, there was plenty to do between the hot tub, exploring the area and just relaxing in this cozy home. Oh, the fun my "boys", ages 48, 20 and 8 - had driving along the beach and sandy roads and dunes. Finding the horses along our exploring adventures only added to a great trip. The owners were incredibly easy to deal with and contact. Thanks, Heidi - for a great getaway. We'll definitely be booking again next year!

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to the Carova Beach homes for the past 5 years. This is by far one of the nicest homes we have ever stayed in. It was the perfect size and location. The photos do not do this home justice. The entire home appears to have been recently updated, kitchen, bathrooms and beautiful hardwood floors throughout. Can't wait to stay here again next summer.
