About Madeline Neu

Our family lives in Hunterdon County in New Jersey. Michael is an electrical engineer, Madeline, a teacher and owner of a preschool center. Daughters, Cynthia and Heather are co-directors of the child care center, Jennifer is an R.N. and son Jim is still in school. Michael and Madeline have 7 grandchildren. Although we are all very busy, we still love to get away to the beach house as often as we can, which is not often enough.

Why Madeline Neu chose Carova

On our first trip to the outer banks, we fell in love with the beaches, the horses and the tranquility and within the two week period that we were vacationing there, we bought the property. Two years later we had built the house. We had been looking for a vacation spot for years. Every summer we would travel to a new location and scout around to determine if that was 'the one' but to no avail. Finally we had found it!

Great vacation home for the family

  • 4 of 5
As we drove up to this house to start our stay, we found our parking space taken.... by wild horses. The house itself was very nice, great views, plenty of room for my family of 6 and my sister and her kids.

My daughter and niece absolutely loved the wild horses, we even had 4 of them hang out for 45 minutes in the carport. We saw dolphins and even sting rays while swimming.

At first we were a bit worried about the 4x4 access and 7 miles in seemed far, but in the end we decided that the distance was actually a big plus, not just for the wild horses, but also because the traffic on the beach was so much better than the places closer in. Remember the beach is the main road, and while you still had to check for cars here, it was by far less invasive than many places.

One other tip - the fire/rescue station is just a few blocks away, they sell soda, ice cream and other snacks and make a great little break. We stopped there after kayaking from the caravo beach park/ramp ( we also did ocean kayaking right by the house).

Amazing house - but beware of the water!

  • 4 of 5
DON'T be frightened by the outside appearance - a little weather beaten and could use some sprucing up (I'm sure from the hurricane!) - decks could use a good power wash (our feet were black after walking on it) - but it is wonderfully laid out and lots of + lounges). Home is as beautiful as pix. Lots of screens missing and torn (again, sure from the hurricane) - but it was so hot and humid - we kept the air on anyway. Home interior is beautifully laid out and decorated. Comfy and stocked with anything you could possibly need. Pots & Pans are top rate (not the cheap stuff in most rentals) and more plates, etc than we could use! Had 8 adults and 3 children - never ran out! Did one load of dishes a day and had plenty. Last day - the dishwasher leaked some, but ran it again and it didn't happen, so not sure what was up with that. Overall, this place is amazing and I would recommend it. WATER PROBLEM - house and water smelled like rotten eggs (sulfur). Called management Co at 5:30 on Sat - no answer (was supposed to be there until 6). Called 1st thing Sunday and they said someone would be out - waited until 4 and called again - THEN we were told they didn't work on Sunday. Called Monday morning to get a time, and said they couldn't give one. After several calls - finally someone came at 1 ish. (think it was closer to 1:30) - problem fixed easily, but then too much chlorine in the water. Son lost 2 pair of shorts and a top to bleach stains. After that, we only washed whites and lights. We still wouldn't drink the water. We brought a Brita and were able to use that to make coffee, but still hard to drink. We went through 4 cases of water and 5 gallons. Management co just not as responsive as we would have hoped in this situation. Other than that, had no other issues. The hot tub (which got LOTS of use) was great and was serviced during the week. Plenty of room to roam and loved, loved, loved the open floor plan - where kids could play - we could hang out, cook, watch movies (although the internet and direct TV was a little sketchy - but we did have 5 different computers running at the same time) and all feel connected. The beach and ocean views were amazing, as well as the horses - which came right up to the house. MUST have a 4wd vehicle. No way a car can make it! We had 3 of them and the 4th vehicle we kept at a local parking lot (which is permitted). You must let out air fm tires - which is a pain - but worth it!

Great place to relax

  • 4 of 5
This house is up on the beach only, 4 wheel drive area of OBX -- great for relaxing, watching the horses that come right up to the house and enjoying the gorgeous beach. House had plenty of room for our party of 7 to spread out comfortably -- a fav spot was the ships watch room above the main floor -- looked right out onto the beach -- beautiful and relaxing. 1st floor game room could easily sleep 3 - 4 more, especially kids, with pullout sofa and nice cots. New water treatment system works great -- no issue at all with water. Hot tub with ocean views was a huge fav -- many good books devoured there! We had some minor issues that the owner responded to quickly and agreeably. So nice to have lots of room on the beach and not be crowded! Wish we were still there!

Castle Connection is located in the beautiful Outer Banks of North Caroina about 7 miles up the beach. There is no road, which makes your stay unique and exciting! You must have a 4-wheel drive vehicle to access the beach. The Outer Banks offers pristine beaches with an abundance of wild life incuding wild horses. The horses can be seen grazing in the dunes or standing in the surf. During the spring and summer months many colts run along after their mothers. It is an interesting sight for young and old alike.
