Carova Cottage, LLC is a Single Family homevlocated just 8 miles from Corolla, at MP 20.6, on the Oceanfront of Carova Beach where the beach is unspoiled, clean, wide, and uncrowded. It is very quiet and natural with dunes, sea oats, and wild life - there is no commercialism on this beach! Wild Spanish Mustang horses roam freely on the island and often graze on the dunes and in the yard.

Treat yourself to a stay in our cozy Oceanfront cottage approx. 165 steps from deck to ocean with a private walkway and sitting deck. Walk out the back door and over the dunes to the beach or drive your 4WD vehicle and park on the beach.

Enjoy the large open family room with its high ceilings and Nantucket Style solid wood planked walls. The Family Room adjoins with the dining area and kitchen, and both rooms have doors that open to the large deck that expands across the back (oceanside) of the house.

The galley style kitchen is just off the living and dining area and is well stocked with dinnerware & cookware including a large stock pot & crab crackers, oven, microwave, full sized refrigerator. We also have a blender, Margarita Maker, Mini-Keurig Coffee maker.

The Family Room has a Flat Screen TV with Dish Network & HBO, and a DVD player with a small library of movies. The lower level Queen bedroom is located just off the family room and has a private entrance to the lower bathroom as well as sliding doors that open to the covered back deck.

Just up the stairs is the large, upper level Queen bedroom with a sitting area, a 48" TV, and doors that open to your own private deck. Down the hall from the Queen bedroom is the twin bedroom that has two twin beds and a bunk bed (with a double on bottom and twin on top). Between the Queen and Twin room is a newly remodeled shared bathroom with a corner shower, toilet and sink. The upstairs hallway is open and overlooks the Family Room below. There is a computer desk in the open hallway in case you need to use the wi-fi to upload your vacation pictures, check your email! We also offer a crib, high chair and pack'n play that can be moved to the room of your choice.

If you need some civilization during your stay, you can drive 30 minutes down the beach to Corolla, where you will find shops, restaurants, activities and entertainment. Corolla houses the Currituck Lighthouse, along with the quaint shops of the old town. The historic Whalehead Club is open for tours and is located next to it the Wildlife nature center; both offering a glimpse into the history of the area and the beauty of it's natural resources. Along Route 12 going south are several shopping areas, mini-golf, go karts, and grocery stores connecting Corolla with the resort town of Duck (45 min drive). Head further south through Kitty Hawk and Nags Head and visit the Wright Brothers National Memorial and Jockey's Ridge state park, the largest natural sand dune on the east coast. At the end of the day, return home to the quiet beauty and peaceful surrounds of Carova Cottage.

So, pack up your 4 Wheel Drive and head to Carova Cottage for a unique vacation you will never forget!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We are a family of 3 from South Carolina and we love Carova Beach!! We visit as often as we can because no other beach compares to Carova!! It is the perfect environment for a family vacation. We love the beach, we love our cozy cottage, and we appreciate our renters!

Why the Owner Chose Corolla, NC, USA:
Carova Cottage, LLC has been a part of our family for years. My Husband and I have recently taken over the management of the cottage. We will continue to use it personally and will also continue to offer it to our renters to enjoy. It is a quaint, classic cottage that is great for smaller families or groups who need something affordable. With the peacefulness and seclusion of the beach and the cottage, you can truly relax and spend great quality time with your family. It's the only place on the Outer Banks where the wild horses roam free. It is still exciting for us to see the horses - they are very often grazing, playing, and resting in our yard. Our renters love our cottage as much as we do. Be sure to read our reviews and 'like' us on facebook!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is so much wildlife- horses, deer, foxes, shore birds, graceful pelicans, and the marine life - schools of dolphins & occasionally whales, turtles and seals. We especially love our horses! Carova Beach Park & Boat Ramp is a short walk or ride from the cottage. You can launch your kayak into the sound or go crabbing. You can relax and do nothing or you can explore the area - there is so much to do (if you choose to).
