What makes this house unique

This home was built with the smaller family group in mind, and still includes your private pool and hot tub.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Summer Paws was the perfect place for our family to spend our Outer Banks vacation. This is our fourth year staying in the 4 wheel drive area and it never disappoints. Great weather (HOT!), plenty of horses, a dolphin sighting and a great fireworks display at the Whalehead Club on the 4th.

Reviewer Comments:

Nice area to vacation. Pool is big enough to cool down when not on the beach. Carova Cottages was very responsive and friendly to any issues or questions we had. We will definitely bookmark this for a future vacation. Only issues/suggestions encountered are there is poison ivy in the area, so just watch your step around the grill. Be nice if the grill could turn so that wind could be blocked while grilling.

Owner's Response: Hi Jon and thank you for your nice review. I think the only good thing about getting poison ivy at the beach is that the ocean probably dried it right up! HOPE SO! That metal park style grill goes the way of everything here... the ocean air dries it right up too! Maybe a sledgehammer would free it up! We're so glad you enjoyed your stay. Please come again.

My wife and I and our 2 daughters, and Sunny the dog had a great time. We were looking for a place that wasn't crowded, had a beach, allowed dogs, and was fun and relaxing. Summer Paws checked them all!!

Reviewer Comments:

This was our fourth summer staying at the Home known as summer paws. We love this home. We have three little boys ages one, three and seven. We also have a German Shepherd. We like this home because it is the perfect size for our family. We love having our own pool and our own hot tub. My sons love the surrounding nature, the horses of course especially. I personally enjoy the home the air-conditioning in the master suite with a separate bedroom. The that's were so comfy and my sons love sleeping in the bunk beds. Even our one year on his own room where we could put his pack and play and he could sleep comfortably. Honestly there is no where you can beat the price of this house.

Reviewer Comments:

Everything was perfect. Yes there is sand. Sand on the beach, on the dunes and on your toes. Clean, quiet and away from the crowds. Remote but with all the comforts of home. Bring your family and the dog because all are welcome. A rare little piece of paradise. If you are looking to go out for dinner every night or shop with the tourists you may want to stay closer to Duck. If you want privacy and seclusion this is the area for you. See you in 2017! Dan, Joanne and Ripple And Laura you are great! Thanks for everything! Every question i had from towels to weather conditions were answered within minutes. I would love a gas grill next year ;)

Great house and perfect location! Close to volunteer fire department where you get ice and just a very short, less than 1 min, drive to the beach. The pool was clean and very refreshing! There was a wonderful breeze from every porch. Very clean and homey feel. My only suggestion to the homeowner would be to upgrade the mattresses. They were not the worst I have ever slept on but they weren't the most comfortable either, even with the mattress toppers. Overall though wonderful vacation home and I would not hesitate to recommend this property to a anyone and plan to rent again in the future!!

Reviewer Comments:

We enjoyed our stay at Summer Paws. Laura was very helpful with questions we had. Location was perfect for us. Far enough down the beach that you did not have many day trippers and a short walk from the house to the beach. The property could use some upgraded furnishings. The mattresses are not comfortable (much better with the mattress pad) and the dinning set has seen better days. We loved the pool, used it every day. Loved the screened in area on the top deck. Loved the lay out of the house. Great view of sunrise and sunset from the deck. Plenty of star gazing. Horses came to visit almost everyday as well as deer, frogs and a snake!

Map

Carova beach is a four wheel drive beach, located at border of north carolina and virginia, hence the name caro- va. You must drive on sand to access the home. Carova is also home to the wild horse herd of north carolina. It is a thrill to wake up to the sounds of horses outside your door, eating and playing.
