Outer Banks House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 12

You must have 4-wheel drive to reach this house but once you arrive you are sure to enjoy the thrill of wild horses in your yard. Kayak or canoe in the canals and sounds. In general, just get away from it all and relax in an area that looks like what the outer banks used to be. This house has a computer with High speed Internet. The lower level has the carport, outside shower, fish cleaning table and hammock. The mid level has the entrance, two queen bedrooms (one with TV and computer), a bedroom with a double bed and a bedroom with two bunk beds, TV and PlayStation. There are two full baths, a laundry, the living areas with TV/VCR, three sofas and dining for ten. There is also a screen porch, a roof top deck and a dock on the canal. No ATVs without permit.

Booking: Homeaway rates are only available when renting directly from Homeaway. Please inquire from Homeaway page. I can not respond to inquiries for next year until January of that year, so please wait until January to inquire. Partial weeks during summer season are only accommodated if another renter is interested in the other part of the week or if the house isn't rented as of 1 week prior to desired check in date.

Rental Agreement: Generic rental agreement is attached.

Special: Return signed rental agreement with deposit within 7 days of 1st inquiry or 120 days of check-in for a 10% discount off owner best rental rates (will be deducted from 2nd payment) . If you are able to complete reservation on Homeaway without assistance and you know what to do in Carova (don't have a lot of questions), you are Carova Worthy and should be rewarded with a discount. Mention Carova Worthy discount in your inquiry.

So Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Very nice vacation rental. Saw wild horses every day. Roomy living area. Loved watching the sunrise from the crow's nest. Would definitely book again.

Beautiful Location

  • 4 of 5

This has been our fourth year at this location. We love the Sunday to Sunday week. It cut down on traffic immensely. We contacted Mary on the day of our arrival and she was prompt and helpful. We especially love the location of the home. We saw more horses than ever this year. The neighborhood has requested and posted signs which ask the horse tours to stay out of the area. It's a beautiful place and an affordable option.

Great vacation for the outdoorsman!

  • 4 of 5

Overall the house was great. Off the beaten path away from it all. The owner answered all questions in a timely manner. Great place for the nature lover, We had horses visiting the yard daily along with other wildlife. Would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a beach vacation but not looking to be in a crowded community.

Very Relaxing Stay

  • 4 of 5

The owner answered all questions promptly, and was very helpful. This home allowing pets was the reason we chose it, and we were so happy we did. The layout was great, with a huge kitchen-dining room open to the family/living room. Perfect for quality time with your family. The deck was great- allowing us to enjoy the sun while blocking the cool breeze. The price is right for this rental. I would certainly recommend it to anyone with pets. And for that matter those without- it was clean and had no pet smell whatsoever. Neighbor across the canal was helpful and friendly as well.

We had a lovely stay and everything is quite as expected. We do very much look forward to a return stay. The accomodations were very nice, roomy, and equipped for all we needed. No problems at all
