Overview

Carova Cottage Rental Photos and Description

5 BR, 4.5 BA, Sleeps 12. Two living rooms. Two refrigerators. Panoramic Views

'Footprints in the Sand' is in the 4-Wheel drive area where the famous Wild Horses roam along the ocean and graze in the cottage yard. Extraordinary sightings include whales, migrating geese, ducks, pelicans and dolphins. The 4 WD area is truly an adventure. 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 in this very secluded area. The large hot tub and sun-room are crowd favorites. Gorgeous private pool, deck, and a large inventory of furniture make the poolside very relaxing. Wireless high speed internet included.

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 fishing, fishing in the sound, and deep sea fishing are all available.

Four Lighthouses: The Currituck Lighthouse is located just a few miles south and it’s light is visible from the cottage at night. Bodie Lighthouse, Cape Hatteras, and Ocracoke Lighthouse are all located within a few hours driving distance. The lighthouse keeper’s houses, Currituck Light and Hatteras Light are open to the public.

Wild Horses in the Four-Wheel Drive area: Most days horses are visible on the beach and in the yards of cottages. The Wild Horse Association maintains over 100 horses that roam freely and feed on the vegetation. The Corolla Wild Horses are believed to have roamed the Outer Banks for more than four centuries. These amazing animals are descendants of Spanish Mustangs. Don’t be surprised if you wake up to find horses and their foals in the yard!

Remarkable Cottage

  • 5 of 5
I love going to the beach! The sunroom is perfect for mornings and lets you enjoy the sunrise at the beach. The upstairs area is beautiful and is complete with a spacious dining table, a fully-equipped kitchen, a "living room" area, two bathrooms, a large bedroom and a deck that's perfect for viewing the ocean. Caribbean-style bedroom reminds you of being on an island and is furnished with tropical-style furniture and decorations. Kid's room is great- it has sturdy bunk beds and neat wall decor. Queen bedroom is spacious and relaxing- my favorite sleeping area. All of the bathrooms were sparkling clean at my arrival. Bottom "beachy" area has a poolside kitchen and stylishly decorated bedroom. The pool is a hit and the showers are useful. Hot tub is awesome for cold weather. Decks are remarkable for viewing the ocean- I have even seen wild ponies and even swans. I recommend this house greatly. I hope to return back to the beach soon!

Great vacation spot!

The house was clean, well-maintained and very spacious. The kitchen had everything you need for cooking. Loved the fact you are so far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Will definitely stay here again!!!

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.
