  • October at the Red Octopus is Magnificent!

    "Our second stay at the Red Octopus was this October and we loved every minute. The raw beauty was stunning as the sky seemed to change from storm clouds to sunshine in moments. We watched a fisherman work hard to bring in a huge catch before he lost it in front of a small cheering crowd that had stopped to watch. Most of the time we felt like we owned the fine-sand, wonderfully broad beach. The clean, cozy home has every amenity you can imagine and then some. Gourmet cooks will be delighted with the fully equipped kitchen. Maybe our favorite time was in the morning sipping coffee and watching the day break on the upper deck as the horses came to visit below. This property has our highest recommendation!"

  • TOO RELAXING FOR WORDS. PERFECT BEACH HOUSE ON THE PERFECT BEACH!!!

    "As a first time beach house renter, I scoured the internet for the perfect house in Carova for our family and friends. I figured there had to be a drawback to such a cool house at such a reasonable rental rate. There were none! (please don't raise the rates though) Our family is in the lumber business so there were many comments about how well the house was built. All the windows, trim and sliding doors are of well above rental quality. I hate a poorly functioning sliding door! I figure the owners are planning to kick out us renters one day and live in this beautiful location. The porches (wide and well stocked with chairs) were my favorite spot at the house. The swing and hammock on the shady second floor deck were perfect for afternoon reading or napping. The hot tub had a great view for star gazing. The breeze off the beach was always there to keep things cool, even in August. The beds were all comfy, washing the sheets that were there for us to use was not a big deal. The washer and dryer were both very efficient. The great room was super for meals. games and lounging. There were 8 of us there and we had too much space. It was great to have all of us able to sit at one table for supper. This house had all the cool extras that you usually only see in houses that are in the higher rent district! Kitchen was great. Like others have commented, there is every utensil that you could ever need there. We cooked every night and never left the whole week and were never once bored! The boats were a definite plus! We had a blast canoeing around the waterways. All the beach stuff in the closet makes this house perfect for folks that don't want to have to bring all that stuff with them. There is lots more toys and chairs there now than is in the rental picture. The outdoor shower was very nice, big and clean. The dogs loved this house too. They were good boys and stayed off the furniture and beds and really liked the baby gate that we used on the deck stairs so they could watch the horses in the yard w/o being tempted to chase them! A group of 5 horses visited us almost every day. Under house parking was good to keep trucks cool and to allow jeep to go naked all week. Best of all is the beautiful beach at this end of Carova!!! The sunrise and night sky here are nothing short of spectacular because of the lack of commercialization. The fire station is very close to get ice all week too. We loved this house and location and will be back! ps. owners were great too!"

  • Beach adventure awaits you.

    "This was our first visit to the OBX area. I've been told by friends how wonderful the Carolina coast was. But they aren't the type of people who would actually drive 6.5 miles up the beach to get to the house. However I am an adventure seeking go getter. Absolutely loved the beach and everything this area had to offer. So thrilled I was able to give my family a vacation they will always remember. The house was very comfortable and had all the comforts of home. It was so nice to bring the whole family including our dog The beach was within walking distance which we did the first day. However we did drive to the beach several times just for the convenience of carrying beach gear. The house had plenty of beach chairs, boogie boards and beach toys. We saw wild horses in the yard and on the beach. We also saw dolphins in the early evening jumping in the ocean. I called the owner of the house to let them know the dishwasher wasn't working. They replaced it the very next day. Many thanks to them for going out of their way to make sure that everything thing was good. If you have the opportunity drive north a short distance on Ocean Pearl to visit the Carova Volunteer Fire Department. There you can get souvenirs and T-shirts to help support the fire department. I hope my review of the house and the area helps you."

  • Great house

    "We just stayed at the Sandmix for the first time and plan to go back. The house is setup great for multiple couples or families with children. The kitchen is stocked with just about everything you could need. The views are amazing in all directions and horses walk right by the house."
