About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 12)
9.2 miles from where civilization ends and paradise begins, you'll find 'Hoof Line & Sinker' a canal front oasis located on one of the last secluded beaches left in America where wild horses roam free.
Witness some of the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the 3 decks surrounding the house. Hoof Line & Sinker is located directly on the canal with a dock for your boat, and a canoe and kayaks we provide for your family. It has straight access and is a short walk to the beach. Our 4 bedroom home with 3.5 baths, sleeps 12 with a queen sleeper sofa in one of two family rooms. The open floor plan upstairs lends itself to spacious living and entertaining with a full modern kitchen featuring stainless steel appliances, granite counters, a pantry and 5 gallon spring water cooler, a breakfast bar that seats 4 and a spacious living area that features a gas linear fireplace and lovely views. We have a 2nd refrigerator on the ground level floor for overflow, an outdoor shower next to the swimming pool and hot tub, a large outdoor sports area for volleyball, corn hole, horse shoes (all provided!) and picnic/game area under the house.

A FANTASTIC NATURAL WILDLIFE AREA WITH WILD HORSES, WATERBIRDS, DEER, FOX etc., ENDLESS TRAILS TO BIKE AND HIKE WITH OPEN BEACHES AND MANY CANALS FOR KAYAKING AND CANOEING!
Year Purchased: 2015
About the owner: Our family's journey began with my parent's decision to purchase a lot and build a modest beach house in Duck in 1973. At my age of 14 years, the only things in town were a Wee Winks market, a Decoy carver on the corner, the Army Corps of Engineers Research facility and a fire house! The wild horses were abundant, but lived up in the Corolla area at the time. Pretty much unspoiled wilderness then. Years later, John and I had a family of our own and raised 2 daughters to love traditional summer vacations in the Duck house, thus continuing the family tradition! Fast forward to 2015 and the scene is very different in Duck, but it is virtually the same in Carova! That is why we chose it! The wilderness is still in place, complete with the wild ponies! Carova is truly a place where one can find peace and tranquility in one of America's last remaining unique natural settings. We hope that you and your family and friends enjoy the magic of Carova as much as we do! We wish you and yours peace and happiness, Lorraine James
Why the Owner Chose Corolla, NC, USA:
The first time we came to Carova we couldn't believe what a fabulous experience to be able to stay in this unique place! Where else in America can you actualy stay in the middle of a wild horse sanctuary in a beach community?! What an adventure, to start your vacation by driving up the beach along the Atlantic Ocean or take a small boat across Knotts Island Bay through the canal system right to your back door!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Avoid all the traffic and come by boat and cut several hours off your drive by launching at the boat ramp on Knotts Island and cruising straight across the bay into the canal system and pull right up to the dock at the house. You will need a shallow draft boat similar to a Jon boat, Polar Craft, Carolina or Mako Skiff. For delicious catered meals, Carova local and professional chef, Mary Thrasher will provide lovely feasts for your group. Also, for fresh fish boils, charter fishing, photography tours and sunset cruises, contact Sean Boder, another local at (252) 722-3622! The carova Beach firehouse is located right across the canal. With limited hours, they offer ice, ice cream, souvenirs, T-shirts, sweatshirts, ball caps, simple games, candy bars and snacks. Occasionally they offer BBQ, hot dogs etc. for fundraisers and allow kids to check out the fire trucks, real nice folks! Recycling is mandatory in this environmentally conscious community :)
