About the Property

4 Bedroom/3 Full & 2 Half Baths -- Sleeps 12

Get away from it all... escape to Bikini Bottom, our playground by the sea. Accessible only by 4WD, Bikini Bottom is located 8 miles up the beach from the end of Highway 12 and is well appointed to ensure your perfect vacation.

After leaving Highway 12, you will immediately feel your stress slip away as you drive along the beach and experience the serene beauty of the Northern Beaches. Along the way, you'll see natural dune lines decorated with sea oats bending in the offshore breezes.

Once you settle in to our beautiful Bikini Bottom, take a stroll along the gorgeous beach to unwind and collect shells left by the changing tides, watch the dolphins play and the pelicans glide, and if you are lucky get a peek at the wild horses and their families grazing in the dunes or playing along the shore. Return to take advantage of our many ocean facing decks or relax in the second floor hammock to listen to the rhythm of the waves crashing against the sand!

Your days at Bikini Bottom can be spent relaxing at the beach or pool, crabbing or surf fishing, walking for endless miles along the shore, or kayaking in the sound. You can also explore all that the Outer Banks has to offer. Shop at the many unique shopping areas in Corolla and Duck, climb the Corolla Lighthouse, or take a tour of the Historic Corolla Village. Many fine restaurants can also be found in these areas, or pick up some fresh fish and steaks and head back to Bikini Bottom to create your own masterpiece! Our grilling gazebo is a relaxing spot to hang out and enjoy a cold beverage while preparing your dinner by the sea.

The well appointed kitchen is a perfect compliment to the grilling gazebo. Enjoy meals in the dining room, at the bar, or enjoy the evening breeze on the screened porch! The master bedroom is also on the top floor, with a large tiled bathroom and private deck. Additionally, from the top floor you can sneak up even farther to the cozy Ship's Watch to relax, read, or take an afternoon nap! The second floor has another master bedroom with a private bathroom. Also located on the second floor are two additional bedrooms which share a full bathroom. All bedrooms have sliding glass doors which open to large decks. The ground floor has a queen sleep sofa, half bath, kitchenette (with refrigerator, microwave, sink and storage cabinets), television and dvd player. Outside, enjoy the large private swimming pool and hot tub. Also, enjoy our two person kayak to explore the canals and even out to the bay. Launch from the public boat launch just a couple of blocks away!

Enjoy all the amenities that we have provided to help make your vacation a spectacular one, but most of all relax and enjoy the unique beauty of Carova and all it has to offer....we know you'll be back!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Shelton and I met at Virginia Tech and have recently celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary! We have spent our entire married lives in Virginia Beach and have two great kids, Morgan and Trey. We all love the beach and we as parents love every opportunity to get away from it all with our kids and our close friends and family. Bikini Bottom is the perfect getaway!

Why the Owner Chose Corolla, NC, USA:
In 2011, our son was lucky enough to visit the 4x4 beaches with a classmate. He came home insisting that we all go down and take a look. We have vacationed in the Outer Banks many times, but this was our first experience with the 4x4 area. Immediately after turning off of Highway 12, I fell in love. The wide open beach and the salt air took all our stress away and we immediately began searching for the perfect house for our family to get away from the hustle and bustle of Virginia Beach, but still enjoy the things we love...walking on the beach, collecting shells, paddleboarding and fishing. We are looking forward to opening our beach house to other families to enjoy the uniqueness of the Northern Beaches and creating a lifetime of memories.
