About Clifford and Dora Scott

My husband and I live in Virginia Beach, he is a long shoreman and I manage a dental practice and we both work for Twiddy cleaning a large beach house on sundays. I graduated from Kellam High School and my husband graduated from Currituck High School and we have enjoyed carova beach since we were children. We have rented homes here at the beach and on the canals since 1995. We have traveled all over the world but could never imagine vacationing anywhere better than Carova Beach.

Clifford and Dora Scott purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Clifford and Dora Scott chose Northern Coast & Outer Banks

My husband and I grew up enjoying carova beach all our lives and In 1997, the year after we were married, we were the first family to rent this home. We talked about how much fun we had and how we would love to own this piece of paradise. All I can say is never stop chasing your dreams. This year we bought our dream home 20 years later and with a little TLC we love it more today then we could even have imagine back then.

What makes this cottage unique

The views, seclusion and close proximity to the beach and sound, makes this home a one of a kind. The comfortable decor and abundance of amenities make it easy to feel like your own slice of paradise. Just minutes to the surf where you can drive right up sink a chair, grab a book, and watch the water roll over your feet as all your stress rolls right away. The home has a boat launch and dock if you bring your own boat we are just minutes from Knotts Island, NC across the sound.

Amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time! The house is wonderful, well equipped, and spacious. The beach was awesome! We had one exceptionally beautiful day that we were able to really enjoy taking our son to it for his first time. We especially loved the wild horses! They visited us a couple of times. The locals are some of the friendliest people we have ever met. We will definitely be back!

Wonderful vacation home! You have to arrive by 4x4 or boat. Charmingly wild and secluded.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Corolla. We didn't know what we were getting into needing a 4x4 to access the property. We had no trouble but it is slightly rough terrain. It was a new adventure that we will absolutely repeat! The house is exceptionally decorated and very well stocked. Beds were comfortable. We enjoyed the hot tub and the fire pit. It was a bit cool in November but the decks are great with plenty of seating. Plenty dark at night to see stars from upper deck. Wildlife and views were incredible. 5 female mustangs were in the yard daily. Dogs are allowed. Thank you! They loved the beach! Wonderfully relaxing family vacation. We brought plenty of food and drink and never had to leave other than going to the beach or horse hunting.

Home away from home <3

We had an amazing weekend getaway at "Salty Kisses". I have always wanted to stay on Corova Beach and when I found this place it was perfect!! It is tucked back on a private lot overlooking the Currituck sound, with the most AMAZING sunsets you could imagine! The beach was just minutes away also. The house was great! It had everything that you needed, well stocked kitchen, beach towels, plenty of bath towels, kayaks, all three decks had plenty of lounging and eating areas. The eagles nest provided a beautiful view over the sound. Off of the master bedroom was a screened in porch with a great little seating area to have my morning devotions and a clean hot tub to enjoy and relax. Also on that same deck in the open air part was the most comfortable hammock. Even on a cool evening it was amazing to relax and watch the sunset all snuggled up in a blanket. On the upper deck, there were amazing tall chairs that we had lunch at overlooking the sound. So much wildlife to enjoy with the horses and birds. We even got in a little fishing, which there was an abundance of! Dora and her husband were an absolute pleasure to work with. They wanted to make sure that our stay was pleasurable and was very prompt to respond if I had any questions.

Bottom line is....This place is amazing!! If you are just going for a weekend getaway to cut off the world and relax, or you stay a whole week, you won't regret it!

Very Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful vacation, we were fortunate enough to stay 9 days!! We spent our time fishing and crabbing, going kayaking, lounging and reading on the hammock/chairs or in the hot tub. There was plenty of space inside for the boys to spread out, they enjoyed watching the Olympics on all the TV's (especially in their room). We went to the beach everyday, the house had plenty of chairs and boogie boards. All of us enjoyed the frequent horse visits, one morning there were 10 in the yard! Every night we had a sunset party on the rooftop deck. Definitely a vacation we will never forget, my boys cried when it was time to go. Thank you Dora and Clifford for opening your home to our family!

This was our best Carova experience so far.

  • 5 of 5

We have typically rented close to the ocean and a house with a pool but with the boys now in late teens and 20s we went for a different experience next to the canals. The location was great, easy drive to the beach, and ability to fish early in the morning and kayak after dinner. The house was well equipped and had loads of special touches. The owners were very responsive to any last minute questions.

Lots of wildlife to watch, long stretches of beautiful pristine beaches, you can drive your 4wheel drive right out on the beach and drop your chair, grab your beverage out the cooler in the car, turn your radio on if you like, or just sit back and listen to the waves crashing on the shore, read your book or walk the shores and gather seashells. There is something for everyone at carova….
