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.

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.

Reviewer Comments:

We had an amazing time at summer paws it was the perfect size for our family and really made us feel at home. We had everything that we needed for our stay and everyone was willing to work with us to make our trip fantastic! The manager was so wonderful and really made this trip a breeze. Only thing that we had a little trouble with was we have small children and the 4x4 beach was tough with them wanting to play and run but that was nothing against summer paws.

This is the 2nd time that we have stayed at Summer Paws! I can't say enough good things about this house! We have 4 young kids that range in age from 13 - 4! There is something for everyone at Summer Paws! We noticed several great improvements with the new ownership! The deck underneath the house is awesome! We spent many nights playing corn hole and grilling! At one point a horse even fell asleep underneath on the deck!! We saw horses every day! So much fun!! There were a ton of sand toys and a great big sun tent (that had seen some wear but still worked awesome) that we used every day at the beach! Laura was so great! Always there to help with recommendations and going the extra mile to make sure everything is just right! We travel all the way from Mn and it is so nice to have such a fabulous house to stay at! We plan to travel back to Corova every other year and will only book with Corova Cottages!!

Owner's Response: THANKS so much Nicole. I was glad to meet you and your family. What a nice tribute to Summer Paws! The owners have put some thought into the improvements, and it seems the lower level deck is the new favorite!! :-) I am so pleased you will return to Carova Cottages and Summer Paws. Build those memories!!

Reviewer Comments:

We rented this house last-minute after our vacation in Avon was cancelled a day before our check-in date due to the disastrous power outage. I am so glad we happened upon this place. The house was very clean, the pool and hot tub were awesome after returning from the beach. And horses, if you're into them, every day, all day. This place must have the sweetest grass in OBX. It got to the point where they were 10 feet from us while we would grill every night. And the entire surface on the ground level under the house is a wood deck - great place to hang out. If you're worried that the house isn't on the beach, don't be. It is a close walk. I have nothing but positive things to say about the house and our stay. And Laura was awesome to deal with as well! Very friendly and responsive.

Owner's Response: That lower level deck is getting RAVE reviews. I saw a corn hole game set up on the front part of that deck. The picnic was set up on the picnic table and the grill was smelling like heaven. The kids were enjoying the pool, just steps away! Under the house is not just for horses anymore! ;-)

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!!
