Sweet retreat is a vacation destiny that lives up to its name. You can retreat into an area that teems with wildlife and unbelievable beauty. Often called the Last Frontier, this area is 13 miles of beautiful beaches from where Highway 12 ends to the Virginia state line. This off road area does require a 4WD vehicle. Sweet retreat is a spacious home set amongst loblolly pines and is the only home on the entire block ( unbelievable privacy ). Upper sun deck , hot tub, playroom with pool table and bar, huge kitchen and great room with fireplace are but a few of the amenities.
Stroll along the wide beaches and search for treasured seashells, sand dollars and sea glass left behind by the changing tides. Take pictures of the wild mustang horses who have roamed the beaches since the early 1500's when Spanish ships went aground and lost their equestrian cargo to the wonderous dunes of Carova.. (Carolina and Virginia = CAROVA).
We were childhood sweethearts who have been married since after high school. We purchsed in Carova Beach because of the beauty, solitude and peacefulness. Being able to drive on the beach and enjoy many freedoms was extremely attractive to us. We valued bringing our children to this area where they could enjoy a more calm, 'back to nature' type existence.
Carova Beach is a photograher's or natuarlist's dream come true. Not only do the horses 'own' the beaches and surrounding dunes, but we have foxes, deer, egrets, dolphins, to mention a few. All this beauty and only 9 miles south to a nightlife that would please anyone.
By day enjoy the clean beaches, strolling, swimming, sunning and shelling. At night take the family into Corolla for quality dining, family fun . You are getting the best of both worlds...................
Our cottage sweet retreat is located in an area that is often referred to as the 'Last Frontier', an area of peace, tranquality, and beauty on gorgorous , wide, clean, beaches on the pristine Atlantic Ocean. The beauty of this 4 wheel drive area is that it is secluded and remote and hosts over 100 wild horses that roam the area in total freedom and grace. During the day you can enjoy driving and parking on the beach and enjoy all the wildlife and freedom. Then at night by driving 9 miles south you are back on the hard surface road in Corolla NC to enjoy 5 star resturants, shopping and family entertainment and landmarks that come straight from the history books.
