While driving up the pristine beach from the end of the paved road in Corolla, you will begin to feel the invigorating sea air and see pelicans, seagulls and the ubiquitous petite sandpipers on the run. Drive over the dune to Carova Beach, where all the roads are sand. When you turn into the driveway for 'Sea-Ya-Round', you may be surprised to see wild horses there to greet you. Some of the mares may have their cute foals with them. The house is located about eight and a half miles up the beach from the end of the paved highway, Route 12 in Corolla, and is accessible by four wheel drive only.
When you first enter 'Sea-Ya-Round', you will immediately relax and feel the uniqueness of this round house nestled in the dunes. There are two bedrooms on the lower level with a large full bathroom. One has a queen bed and the other has twin beds. Large windows give wonderful views of the wild horses which meander around to the house almost everyday.
On the main level you will find a king bedroom and another large bathroom with a top-of-the-line washer/dryer. Also on the main level is your fully-equipped kitchen with an island wet bar and a dining area. You can relax and watch high definition television in both the family room and master king bedroom. You will also find a selection of DVD movies and a collection of books.
A stroll out the five foot wide runway to the elevated gazebo, will show you why you chose to have your vacation at 'Sea-Ya-Round'. You will see spectacular views up and down the beach, feel the cool breezes and witness the wonders of the pelicans' flight as they glide by at your eye level. Suddenly, all the stresses of your life will disappear! Take a glass of wine and watch and savor the views for hours from the gazebo. In the evening have your dinner in the gazebo, and enjoy the spectacular blazing sunsets.
You will want to spend the night in the gazebo!
Awake to the wild mustangs having their morning fill of sea oats, so why not join them for breakfast in the gazebo? You can enjoy the glistening morning surf, and watch the ocean with its abundance of sea life frolicking in the morning lull. The views will be mesmerizing as you sip your morning coffee.
Direct access to Carova Beach is reached by steps from the gazebo down to the beach. Your cares will vanish while strolling along the beach perhaps looking for unusual shells or other treasures from the sea. End your day relaxing in the round hot tub. Turn off all the lights so you may take in the beautiful night skies with shooting stars. All this and more is yours while you are staying in beautiful Carova Beach and 'Sea Ya Round'.
There are many other things to do while staying in Carova Beach such as taking a hike in the False Cape State Park. This is located about 1.5 miles north of the house.
The park kiosk has a flier that will show you where walking trails are located throughout the park. There is a pristine, undisturbed beach where only nature abounds. Surf fishing is always a fun thing to do, and who knows, you may catch fresh fish for your dinner. While you fish, you can watch the seagulls and pelicans fish for their dinner. A fishing permit is required.
If you have the desire to go off the beach to the south, you will find many wonderful restaurants with all types of cuisine. Visit the shops in Corolla and Timbuck II shopping area, and don't forget to tour the restored Whale Head Club, the Currituck Lighthouse and finally the new Wildlife Museum, which are all located together in Corolla. Driving further south will offer more to see - such as the Wright National Memorial Park where flight began in 1903, and the North Carolina Aquarium in Manteo.
But, the best place to be is 'Sea Ya Round'
I've been a lover of Carova Beach for many years. As an artist, I love the beauty of this Beach. I've painted many landscapes in Carova and I teach plein air pastel landscape workshops around the country and abroad. I love surf fishing at the beach house, and I wish I had more time to spend in Carova. I've Traveled a lot, but there seems to be no place like Carova. I'm a pretty easy going guy and just like being alive to paint landscapes, and travel. You will see a few of my landscapes in the house. If you would like to see my art work, Google my name. OK, that's enough about me! Have a great week!!! Cheers!, Jack
I chose Carova Beach because of its natural beauty and the remoteness as well as there are no paved roads. There is no better place to relax and just chill out.
A place to just kick back and relax!
