About the property

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 back porch, a roof top deck and a dock on the canal. No ATVs without permit.

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, when I am able to reserve your week by paying the Refundable $200 Damage Deposit. 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. For 2018, we will only be renting the house during the summer season.

Rental Agreement: Generic rental agreement is attached. Please read cancellation policy. There are limited refunds.

Special: Return signed rental agreement with deposit within 7 days of 1st inquiry 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.

Why Mary Turner chose Corolla

Carova Beach is for people who really want to get away from it all. There is nothing to distract you from relaxing and enjoying the beach.

What makes this house unique

Great views of the canal from the upper desk

Quiet, just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

It felt like we were at our own vacation home, we weren't looking for something "brand new" with all the bells and whistles because we were there to enjoy the peacefulness and serenity that the home offered! We spent a lot of time fishing off the dock while the teenagers used the canoe to explore. We're planning on coming back every year!

Peaceful and relaxing

We love our vacation each year. There are a few minor things that could be done to fix it up and update the property, but we love it.

The best vacation we've had yet!

  • 4 of 5

Carova is a really unique location. We saw wild horses every day, enjoyed the unspoiled beach, paddled the sound and caught fish from the dock. Almost every day we saw F15 fighter jets flying training missions from Seymore Johnson AFB. The sound of an F15 really makes you proud to be an American! The home is spacious but could use some updates. Overall this is an incredible value. I'm not the type of person who goes to the same place twice but We will definitely be back!

Was o.k. needs work

  • 4 of 5

The house was o.k. smelled cleaner than it was. It clearly has been quite awhile since the underneath has been cleaned. Couldn't use the room with the pool table. It was filthy and stinks. The bathrm outlet breaker tripped. Took awhile to figure out how to reset it. Should b a sign in the bathroom how to reset it.couldn't get the 2 t.v.s in the back to work.

Other than that, we enjoyed the crab pots and the horses in the canal .liked the large open area in the kitchen and front room

We cleaned up better than when we arrived,

Would stay again , but house really needs some work... Thanks

Milky Way and wild horses abound!

  • 5 of 5

We felt instantly at home at Mary's place! We had amazing weather, and the experience with the wild horses coming to visit daily was truly an experience we'll never forget. We started out with mom, dad, and an older son... After they came to visit for a few days, the young stallion was sent on his way by momma... and we were fortunate enough to witness!

You absolutely must sit on the side porch at night. We would sit and just stare at the Milky Way to wind down the days. All of us were simply amazed at the views of the stars... Just breathtaking!

Thank you, Mary, for sharing your home with us. Truly unforgettable.

The Dellinger Family <3
