'BIKINI BOTTOM' INVITES YOU TO RELAX AND PLAY BY THE SEA

Carova House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom/3 Full & 2 Half Baths -- Sleeps 10-12

***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!

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

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.

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.

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.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
This was our second trip to Corolla and our first stay at Bikini Bottom. The house is exactly like the write up. It was very comfortable, had a well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds and beautiful ocean views. We saw sunrises and sunsets right from the decks of the home.

The pool looked inviting but it was not warm enough to use. We did enjoy the hot tub.

We enjoyed our long daily walks and saw lots of wild horses, deer and some dolphins.

I would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for an adventure and relaxing time.

Spring Break 2014

  • 5 of 5
We had wanted to take a trip to the 4x4 beaches of Carova since we bought our Jeep 3 years ago. We were looking for something to do for Spring Break and decided on Bikini Bottom. When we arrived, everything was as pictured on the website. The house sits on the second sand road back from the beach with a beautiful view of the water. Shortly after arriving, we started exploring all that Carova has to offer. The first several days brought warm weather and we spent a lot of time on the beach and four wheeling through the sand trails. One afternoon we had some four-legged visitors all around us. It was fantastic!

The weather changed midway through the week and it was very windy and chilly. That didn't dampen our trip. We braved a few walks on the beach but spent most of the time in the house relaxing. There were two kids with us, age 8-10, and they enjoyed playing the games that were in the house and watching movies.

We went back into Corolla twice during our trip to pick up a few groceries and have lunch. There was plenty of room in both fridges to keep food for a week and the kitchen was nicely stocked. There wasn’t anything that we wished we had brought with us. During our stay, the owner was available for any questions and the pool and hot tub were cleaned while we were there. The house had just the right touch of beachy décor and comfy beds. The upper deck and screened porch were perfect for enjoying a morning cup of coffee and reading.

We have stayed in a lot of different areas of the Outer Banks over the years from Hatteras to Duck and a variety of cottages, large to small, but this was our favorite. There were a total of 6 people with us and with two days spent inside it was perfect. We are looking forward to coming back.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your trip! I am especially happy that you enjoyed reading out on the screened porch. We just added the outdoor furniture on the porch and it is one of my favorite spots! I hope you come back to see us again...we have more improvements in the works:)
