About the property

4x4 ~ CAROVA BEACH ~ WILD HORSES ~4 BEDROOM w/ 2.5 BATHROOMS ~ HOT TUB!

SEMI OCEAN FRONT HOME - SATURDAY TO SATURDAY HOME

Please call the Owner for Different Check In Day / Extended Weeks

Accessible by 4X4 ONLY ~ CAROVA BEACH, OBX

Nestled along the dunes of Carova Beach, you can get away from it all in this secluded semi-oceanfront home. A true family getaway, this home offers the perfect place for relaxation. Enjoy the peaceful sea breeze the two levels of ocean side decks. Unwind in the hot tub while watching for the grazing wild mustangs, or bury your feet in the sandy beaches. 'The Sand Bunker offers a beautiful setting for a memorable vacation.

Carova Beach is only accessible by 4x4. There are no paved or improved roads, so you must drive a 4x4 vehicle up the beach to access the home. It is the northern most beach, very near the Virginia state line. Also for the 4x4, you will need to let the air pressure out of all 4 tires. I suggest letting the tire pressure to around 20-25 psi. The lower tire pressure will give you a much wider "foot print" in the sand. The hard tires will bury themselves in the sand.

A lot of my guests like to rent a 4x4 SUV or Truck. The rental companies have great rates on 4 wheel drives in the summer months. Plus you'll be putting the all the travel miles on a rental vehicle instead of your own personal vehicle. And, all the saltwater and sand of the beach won't be inside your vehicle.

**BEACH CHAIRS, SAND TOYS AND POP UP CANOPY TENT INCLUDED**

LEVEL 2 : Two Bedrooms (Queen, Queen) with Shared full bathroom; Two Bedrooms (Queen, Bunk Bed) with shared full bath; Deck - Hot Tub.

The Sand Bunker

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had the best vacation experience at the sand bunker! House was immaculate and everything works great, also extremely private as there are no houses near you. House is exactly as it looks in the pictures. Ocean is extremely close (probably 2 min walk) as we drove our truck about 30 seconds to the beach everyday. We couldn't say any more good things about this house, would recommend it to anyone.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the privilege of spending our vacation at The Sand Bunker. The house was perfect for our family of 5 (3 young children). It was clean and stocked with everything you need. The location was the best part. Very quiet and just a hop, skip and jump from the ocean. Wild horses were beautiful (we got to see them daily). The owner is wonderful, very helpful and accomdating. Great pick overall and will be back!

The Sand Bunker

  • 5 of 5

Looking for something new for a family vacation, we stumbled upon The Sand Bunker. The owner was wonderful to deal with and booking with the Realtor was easy. The home is super clean and well maintained. This being our first experience with a 4x4 Beach and the Outer Banks, we learned a lot and are excited to return in the future. The wild mustangs were visible and visited often during our stay. It feels very private and secluded. Thanks for the great memories!

the sand bunker

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to stay at this well kept property this year. The whole house was in great shape, the kitchen fully stocked with everything you might need to cook a meal on any scale. The bedrooms were immaculate, bathrooms exceptionally clean and the property as a whole kept in fine shape.

It's location to the ocean is perfect and the wild mustangs came and visited often. My wife and I would recommend this beautiful home to anyone and have already reserved it for later this year and plan on returning every year.
