***New for 2015....Sunday check-in ...avoid the traffic!!*****

Get away from it all... escape to Bikini Bottom, our playground by the sea. Accessible only by 4WD, Bikini Bottom is located 8 miles up the beach from the end of Highway 12 and is well appointed to ensure your perfect vacation.

After leaving Highway 12, you will immediately feel your stress slip away as you drive along the beach and experience the serene beauty of the Northern Beaches. Along the way, you'll see natural dune lines decorated with sea oats bending in the offshore breezes.

Once you settle in to our beautiful Bikini Bottom, take a stroll along the gorgeous beach to unwind and collect shells left by the changing tides, watch the dolphins play and the pelicans glide, and if you are lucky get a peek at the wild horses and their families grazing in the dunes or playing along the shore. Return to take advantage of our many ocean facing decks or relax in the second floor hammock to listen to the rhythm of the waves crashing against the sand!

Your days at Bikini Bottom can be spent relaxing at the beach or pool, crabbing or surf fishing, walking for endless miles along the shore, or kayaking in the sound. You can also explore all that the Outer Banks has to offer. Shop at the many unique shopping areas in Corolla and Duck, climb the Corolla Lighthouse, or take a tour of the Historic Corolla Village. Many fine restaurants can also be found in these areas, or pick up some fresh fish and steaks and head back to Bikini Bottom to create your own masterpiece! Our grilling gazebo is a relaxing spot to hang out and enjoy a cold beverage while preparing your dinner by the sea.

The well appointed kitchen is a perfect compliment to the grilling gazebo. Enjoy meals in the dining room, at the bar, or enjoy the evening breeze on the screened porch! The master bedroom is also on the top floor, with a large tiled bathroom and private deck. Additionally, from the top floor you can sneak up even farther to the cozy Ship's Watch to relax, read, or take an afternoon nap! The second floor has another master bedroom with a private bathroom. Also located on the second floor are two additional bedrooms which share a full bathroom. All bedrooms have sliding glass doors which open to large decks. The ground floor has a queen sleep sofa, half bath, kitchenette (with refrigerator, microwave, sink and storage cabinets), television and dvd player. Outside, enjoy the large private swimming pool and hot tub.

Enjoy all the amenities that we have provided to help make your vacation a spectacular one, but most of all relax and enjoy the unique beauty of Carova and all it has to offer....we know you'll be back!

About Michelle Clough

Shelton and I met at Virginia Tech and have recently celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary! We have spent our entire married lives in Virginia Beach and have two great kids, Morgan and Trey. We all love the beach and we as parents love every opportunity to get away from it all with our kids and our close friends and family. Bikini Bottom is the perfect getaway!

Michelle Clough purchased this house in 2012

Why Michelle Clough chose Carova

In 2011, our son was lucky enough to visit the 4x4 beaches with a classmate. He came home insisting that we all go down and take a look. We have vacationed in the Outer Banks many times, but this was our first experience with the 4x4 area. Immediately after turning off of Highway 12, I fell in love. The wide open beach and the salt air took all our stress away and we immediately began searching for the perfect house for our family to get away from the hustle and bustle of Virginia Beach, but still enjoy the things we love...walking on the beach, collecting shells, paddleboarding and fishing. We are looking forward to opening our beach house to other families to enjoy the uniqueness of the Northern Beaches and creating a lifetime of memories.

Awsome!

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely the best vacation home we have stayed at. From the moment we arrived we loved it. Everything you could want is made available and immediately we felt at home. When we arrived we were greeted by a fox in the back yard and it was not long before the horses visited with us. There is plenty to do with the ocean just a short stroll away, a hot tub to relax, and a pool for the warmer days. We enjoyed driving the sand roads, looking at the scenery, houses, and wild life. The home is very well equipped with everything you need, just bring your food and everything else is there. Very nicely furnished and decorated, great design and layout, home away from home. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us, we will return.

Magnificent

  • 5 of 5
After 12 years of vacationing in OBX we found the perfect home. The home was spotless when we entered, all the beds were amazingly comfortable, clean soft linens and more towels than any family could ever use. The kitchen is equipped with every gadget you would ever need, as well as griddle and crock pot. They also had a highchair and booster seat which were used by our grandchildren. The the pool and hot tub were kept clean and maintained twice a week during our stay. And the covered grill area was fabulous on the hot sunny afternoons and on a rainy evening. This home was perfect and we loved our stay there.

Beautiful house, well equipped!

  • 5 of 5
This was our 5th time on the 4x4 beach and 4th house and by far the most equipped home we've stayed. Plenty of room for our family of 8. We had a wonderful time and would definitely plan a return visit to Bikini Bottom. Pool and hot tub were perfect for those times when we were "beached" out. Horses and deer every day in the front or back yard. Short .25 mile walk to the shoreline made it nice as we didn't need to pack up the vehicle if we just wanted to run down to the beach for a few hours. Loved everything about the place. Thanks for having us

We had an absolutely wonderful time during our stay. Though a little far off the beaten path, we would not hesitate to stay there again. The beaches and water were beautiful. The house was amazing. The pool and hot tub were used extensively. Very comfortable as well. Plus seeing the horses, deer and dolphins made the trip of a lifetime. Thank you so much for your hospitality.

Seclusion and Privacy

If you want a vacation to get away from it all, this is it. We had a wonderful experience. House was the best equipped and furnished home I have ever rented. We are defiantly making plans for a return visit. Don't come if you need daily access to starbucks or your kids are into the tourist traps of so many beach vacations.
