LIGHTLY SALTED: GORGEOUS OCEAN VIEWS, LUXURY UPDATES, SLEEP NUMBER ® BEDS

Carova House Rental Photos and Description

5BR, 4 full 2 half baths, Pets welcome

Welcome to 'Lightly Salted', one of Swan Beach's finest cottages perched against oceanfront dunes of the wild and beautiful Outer Banks of North Carolina. Located only three miles from the hard surface roads of Corolla, in Currituck County....this vacation home is perfectly situated, enjoying virtually unobstructed views of blue-green waters, bubbling white surf and wide, sandy, wheat-toned beaches as far as the eye can see. The enchantment begins almost as soon as your 4x4 vehicle slips from the pavement to the sand, only a few feet from the roar of the surf. Travel 3 short miles and turn in towards the dunes to find your home away from home, with more amenities and luxuries than you thought possible.

New updates for the 2013 rental season include leather sofa, loveseat, chair and ottoman, and new end tables, coffee tables and sofa tables for the living room. The third floor master is now a King Sleep Number ® bed, with new dressers, side tables and chest of drawers. New wood floors have been installed in the third floor living space and tile floors have been installed in the kitchen and 5 of the 6 bathrooms.

The state of the art electronics systems include a 55 inch Sony LED HDTV in the living room and 32 inch Samsung HDTV's in every bedroom, all connected to every channel offered by Directv, the 'Ultimate Package'. Never miss a game with the NFL package, offering every game, every Sunday. The Panasonic Surround Sound system rounds out the theater experience. Accounts with Pandora and Netflix offer unlimited movie and music streaming options via the Blu-ray player. Music is also available while partying in the huge private pool and picnic area with padded lounge chairs, tables and market umbrellas, a large hot tub and a gas grill. The pool stereo system, located just inside the ground floor entry, is also a docking station for your iPad, iPod and iPhone. Also located on the ground floor are a half bath and a mini refrigerator, making poolside entertaining a breeze. Take a break from the party and walk the 50 feet across the dune to the ocean. You can’t get any closer to the ocean on this stretch of beach than from this house.

Entertaining inside will be even easier in the extremely well equipped kitchen with all new major appliances for the 2013 season. New cookware, utensils and small appliances have been added for the gourmet in your group. If you’ve wanted to try out one of those new k-cup coffeemakers, bring the k-cup coffee and use ours. A “Mr Coffee” is still available though as well as a thermal coffee pot and a coffee grinder. Take that drink out on the screened porch just off the kitchen and watch the waves, or play a game at the outside dining table.

Our home boasts Sleep Number ® beds with dual comfort controls and 400 thread count linens along with a quality assortment of pillows for your sleeping pleasure. There is a king Sleep Number ® in the third floor master, queens for three more bedrooms and a kid's room with bunk set and pull out futon. Fall asleep to your private music selection with the iPad, iPod, iPhone docking station stereos located in every bedroom. Be sure to bring your X-Box 360 games or play some of ours on the brand new game console located in the bunk/futon room.

Spend a luxurious week, enjoying the beach, swimming in the ocean, soaking up the sun, watching the horses and other wildlife, and relaxing to the sound of the pounding surf from the well appointed accommodations of 'Lightly Salted'.

You must have a 4 wheel drive vehicle to access this property.

The house was absolutely awesome! There is plenty of space for 4 kids and 2 adults with room to spare. It is apparent that the owner takes a great deal of pride in the home. All of the updated amenities made for a great stay. The location is perfect and it was very quiet over New Years ....... exactly what we were hoping. Laura, the property manager was great and checked on us and it was a comfort knowing she was close by. Overall, this is one of the best property's we have stayed in at the OBX! We will be back again!

We have stayed at this property multiple times and have loved our time at this house. With all the recent improvements, it has everything needed for a relaxing escape with no worries. The pool and hot tub area is clean and the picnic table with grill is great for families.

My son loved seeing the horses when they came to visit and other wildlife. Truly a wonderful family experience!!

From the moment we arrived this house was beyond anything we could have imagined! Property Managers Laura & David are wonderful. Owner Bill has thought of EVERYTHING that a person might need to make their stay comfortable. The house is amazing, clean and kitchen is stocked with pretty much anything you could think of. It is also the little things that go along way - they knew we were traveling from Ohio & was so sweet to see water and a chew toy waiting for our dog. The only thing I wish I had known prior was that 1 week at this house is not long enough!
