There's no place like it on the east coast. The long walks on open beach for miles on end. The wild horse sanctuary. Sunrise over the ocean and sunset over the bay. A special brand of people, locals and travelers.

Anchors Hold--OBX vacation dream!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have has been vacationing in the Outer Banks for the last 15 years..and have stayed in the best homes on the banks. We and our friends all agreed that Anchor's Hold provided us with the MOST relaxing and memorable vacation to date. The home, the pool, the amenities and the owners were tops in every aspect!!! The location provided beautiful views of the ocean, horses walking by every day, and the most spectacular sunsets from the ships watch. Even my dog was relaxed and had a blast! When riding home, we were already planning our next year's trip. We hope to return to this home for many years to come, and plan on considering this our "second home". Thanks for sharing this property with us!

Our Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family has visited the Outer Banks each summer for many years and Carova Heights is above and beyond all the rest. The layout of the home is perfect to allow for plenty of together time, but you can also find a spot for a bit of quiet time to read, work on a puzzle or reflect on the day. The views from the top floor are amazing. My granddaughters could go from window to window to watch the wild horses, who really do come up to the house. Everything you could possible need is provided and everything looks brand new. The beach is a very short walk and the pool is a refreshing close to the end of the day. You won't be disappointed with the privacy both around the house and at the beach. Pack your bags, grab your bathing suit and be sure to reserve Carova Heights......just not my week, please. My only regret is that I didn't rent Carova Heights for a month!

Worth the drive!

  • 5 of 5

Carova Heights has become our extended family’s go-to vacation spot. We have visited here for the last five years and have been pleased with all of the investment and improvements that Rande and Bob continue to make. In recent years they have also supplied many creature comforts that guests need (paper products, bath items, dog beds, etc.) which is very appreciated since it seems you always forget something when going on vacation. With three generations in our group the house has a little something for everybody, from toys and puzzles for the kids, to beach reading options, to a reliable WiFi signal for those who need to work during the week (especially given the remote location and almost everybody in the house using devices at some points). Another appreciated upgrade over the years is flat-screen TVs with a broad range of satellite channels in each bedroom. This year we had the best weather week we’ve had in all of our visits and took advantage of the cool evening breezes from the deck.

Ramona does a great job ‘flipping’ the home between guests. We like to arrive early to beat traffic. She has always been very kind to let us unload a few things and then we hang out on the beach or by the pool until she has the home ready. Any time we have had even a minor maintenance issue they are quick to respond. These personal touches make it evident that Carova Heights is a home Rande and Bob share with their guests and not just an investment rental property.

Shangr iLa in the OBX

  • 5 of 5

Its tough to write a glowing review of Carova Heights only in that I want to keep it a secret all to myself. This was our 2nd stay of hopefully many stays at this wonderful home. Rande and Bob do an amazing job keeping Carova Heights in immaculate condition which I can only imagine is no easy feat being surrounded by the ocean, the sound and the sand. The new floors to the latest in electronic gadgets. They provide every amenity a family could need or want to have an incredible vacation. The provision of sheets towls baby items all may sound minor when choosing a home but for most the OBX is a good haul and every little item adds up when packing the truck for the trip. Touching on that part its Sunday to Sunday and for any of you that have been stuck on rte 12 or 13 on a Saturday in the summer months can attest it is a true life saver to not start or finish you vacation in that mess. Rande has the best house keeper on the island bar none. She keeps the house clean to a standard the most obsessively clean person would be happy and comfortable. I have rambled on enough you just have to see the place for yourself pictures and reviews don't do it justice. If you and your family are looking for a place to vacation for this year and years to come Carova Heights is the only place you need to look. Thank you Rande and Bob for all you do and continue to do to make mine and anyone else who stays with you vacation memorable.
