'FOOTPRINTS ', PET FRIENDLY IN 4 X 4 AREA, LARGE POOL, HOT TUB, WIFI

Carova Cottage Rental Photos and Description

- 5 BR, 4.5 BA, Sleeps 13.

'Footprints in the Sand' in 4-Wheel drive area where Wild Horses roam all year along the ocean and graze in the cottage yard. There's an occasional sighting of a whale,migrating. Geese, ducks, pelicans and dolphins abound. The 4 WD area is truly an adventure. And although the area is secluded this owner/contractor built cottage is well-equipped with comfortable extras; professionally decorated with beautiful furnishings, custom cabinets, granite and marble tops and tile. Two levels of decks provide magnificent views of sunrises and sunsets. The large hot tub and sun-room are crowd favorites. Gorgeous 14' X 30' pool with large deck and furniture. Available now, free, wireless high speed internet.

Fishing: This area is renowned for great fishing. It is home to a vast number of species- striped bass, flounder, red and black drum, marlin, cobia, trout, tuna, spot and croaker. Surf fish, fish in the sound, and deep sea fishing are all available.

Four Lighthouses: The Currituck Lighthouse, Bodie Lighthouse, Cape Hatterras, and Oracoke Lighthouse are all within a few hours driving distance. The lighthouse keepers houses and Currituck and Hatteras are open to the public. The Currituck light is visible from the cottage at night.

Wild Horses in the 4 Wheel Drive area: Most days horses are visible on the beach and in the yards of cottages. The Wild Horse Association maintains about 50 horses that roam freely and feed on the vegetation. The Corolla Wild Horses are believed to have roamed the Ouer Banks for more than 4 centuries. These amazing animals are descendants of Spanish Mustangs. There are several tour companies that will take you to see the horses in the 4 WD area. But if you stay in a cottage in this area you may wake up to find horses with their foals in the yard!

Guestbook comments from the owner
We first arrived at the property on a Saturday evening. The house was more than we could have asked. Everything was neat, tidy, and welcoming. The decks offer amazing views of the sunrise over the ocean. When the sun was out, we were on the beach shell hunting or just enjoying the beautiful scenery. We made so many memories and want to thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us

I am a Virginia Contractor with home building experience and my wife and I love the building and decorating process. We built the house with investment in mind and retirement income for the future. Although, it was to be a business it quickly became a personal adventure. We hope you will find it to be comfortable and enjoyable for your family vacation

thecountrycupboard@embarqmail.com purchased this cottage in 2002

We loved the natural beauty of the area, driving on the beach, ocean and sound views, the undeveloped land, privacy,but all the luxuries ( phone, cable, internet) are available!

The view from any window in the house is enjoyable, even on a rainy day you can enjoy the views of the oceans from the top and middle decks!

PERFECT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Great house and location. Everything you could want in a vacation home for the family. Property was clean, well maintained and had a great little kitchen by the pool to use for snacks and drinks. Rooms were spacious and the wild horses love the yard. Saw them everyday and on the beach. Only negative was the traffic to get on the island, they need another bridge. Great place and we would return if we go to the outer banks again.

UNIQUE VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
We've stayed at this property for several years and we keep going back. We've also had the opportunity to stay at several other houses in the OBX and this is by far the best!! The house and pool are absolutely beautiful. You get the feeling of being "at home" only better! The furnishings, tile floors and granite countertops make this house even more special. We loved staying in the second level master bedroom. It's very convenient to the top level living room, but also to the pool. There was plenty of space for our family to gather. Also, with several decks, you could always find a place to slip away and enjoy the view and a great book. We spent time relaxing by the pool, enjoying the wild horses and playing in the sand. The 4 x 4 area is so unique....there's nothing quite like it. We just love staying at "Footprints" and we can't wait to go back!

ADVENTURE VACATION

  • 3 of 5
Quiet area, horses came right up to the door. Saw deer across the street. Dolphins seen nearly everyday we walked on the beach. The pool area was nice. House was huge and lots of room. On the negative side, It is four-wheeled drive a must! We did not drive to town everyday because of the driving on the beach area was almost four miles to the road. You are driving in the dunes period! Our house was not finished cleaned when we arrived after 6:30. Many areas of the house was dirty. The house is not kept up very well. We have rented in Wave's and the walk to the beach was out the door. It is 3/4 mile walk to the beach thru the dunes or road. Not much difference in cost and I would rent in Wave's next time. Just as quiet and not as dangerous driving. There is no water pressure, and the water is terrible smelling. the house has sulfar and hard water the house needs a better filter system. It does have a system now at the home and does not help the problem. No pressure for more than one shower at time.

Owner's Response: The 4-wheel drive area is one of the last frontiers on the east coast. Driving is not over 15-25 miles an hour on the beach and the beach is patrolled by police. Our house is 3.1 mile from the hard top road and 650 feet from the beach. Due to the island location, the house is supplied with well water, which is potable. The water system is treated twice a month or more if requested by the realtor.

WONDERFUL!!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Footprints in the Sand in August 2009. We had a wonderful week! The layout of the house was perfect for our group,we had 6 adults and 2 children. The house is beautiful with plenty of room to spread out. The pool and hot tub were a big hit!! We saw lots of wildlife, horses, pelicans, crabs, jellyfish and the adorable tree frogs. We drove to the beach everyday which was great. It was a little to far for the two children to walk. The drive took no more than 5 minutes. The trip was fantastic, I would definately recommend this property to anyone!! My only advice would be to not wash anything light colored. I washed a load of light blue towels and ended up with some rust/iron? stains. Also bring plenty of drinking water becuse the water does have a sulpher smell.

4X4 VACATION

  • 4 of 5
The house was very nice and the pool (with heating) was wonderful. Without the pool, I'm not sure we would have enjoyed vacationing here since there were two small children with us and it was some distance from the beach (too far to walk). Also, no one tells you about the horse flies and other biting flies common in this area. Positives were that it was much less congested than other areas of the beach and we spent quality time together as a family. You definitely need a substantial 4X4 in this area; we saw lots of people stuck in the sand. The towing company keeps a truck or two in this area around the clock.

Owner's Response: If you are a first time 4 X 4 vacationer, a higher sitting 4-wheel drive vehicle is advantageous. As with any body of water, flies and mosquitoes are possible. We are approximatley 650 feet from the ocean and many families enjoy driving their vehicles with all "their " beach stuff and cooler with them to the beach. The pristine and quiet atmosphere of the 4-wheel drive area is made possible by not having paved roads. With a little practice most people find driving becomes easy and enjoyable in the sand. Lowering tire pressure to 18# makes driving much, much easier, also.

PERFECT VACATION GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
This was one of the most relaxing vacations I have been on! The house is beautiful and private. There is no traffic and no crowds, only the relaxing beach scenery and the sounds of nature. In fact, during our stay we had several sitings of wild horses. Although quiet, there is excellent dining and shopping only a short drive away. The house is very spacious and very well maintained. The pool located in the back of the house is fenced in, which made it perfect for children. Near the pool is also a charcoal grill which made great dinners. Evenings that we didn't eat out we bought fresh seafood at the local markets and enjoyed a family dinner. The kitchen was fitted with every accessory needed to prepare a seafood dinner. Our vacation was perfect.
