Why Mary Turner chose Outer Banks

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

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.

Very nice and homey

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property for over 10 years now and really enjoy the location and this year the improvement that were made. It makes a good home away from home for the week. We get to the beach house and we stay, the flounder were great this year we had fish for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The horses were amazing as usual. I was pleased with the new kitchen stove, refr. and dishwasher.

Thanks for sharing your beach house with us. See you next year.

Wonderful Home, wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

My group and I (12 people) came down for a weeklong excursion in late June, and we loved every minute of it. The house itself is located in a quiet and secluded area along the canal, so we were able to kayak/canoe while still being able to walk over to the beach (which was the equivalent of a few blocks). The ad for the home talks about being able to see the wild horses, and we can verify. Everywhere we walked they (the horses) were out and about, which was really quite an amazing experience in itself.

The house itself was wonderful: plenty of beds/fold outs, a large kitchen and living room, and a deck with a great view of the canal. Regarding the large group of people, I think this house is the only one I've stayed in that actually has enough refrigeration storage for our group size. And while that may seem like a minor detail, it was logistically invaluable (We could store our week's worth of food, as well as our bait). The living room was great for everyone, the amount of seating allowed for everyone to hang out in one room without squeezing in. The Durado was very clean and properly maintained, and had everything you could need amenity-wise. Our only real issue (which is incredibly minor) was slower internet, which is really only an issue if a group member wants to get some work done while at the house. Overall I would highly recommend this house for any group looking for a secluded and beautiful home, with a wonderful experience to go along with it!
