Reviewer Comments:

We thought the owners were very attentive and nice and the view is great… But we felt the house was tired and needed a power washing. There were cobwebs everywhere inside and out and the screens were ripped and it smelled like mold inside. The owners were attentive; when we complained about the broken grill, they replaced it the next day. The brand new pool was the highlight.

Owner's Response: Hi Eric, Thanks for your insights. We just can't keep up with those spiders! LOL INDUSTRIOUS little things! We'll be sure to get the house power-washed in the spring. It is tough to do in the middle of the season. Hope you were able to enjoy your time at Swans a Swimming. That new pool is EXCELLENT!

Owner's Response: September is our favorite month for the beach. The weather can be questionable at times, but the water is still warm and the crowds have dissipated. The restaurants are still in full swing, but no waiting! :-) Come back soon and hoping you will have a full week of sunshine!

For my first time visiting the outer banks, it was a blast and I already cannot wait to come back!! Easy drive up the secluded 4x4 beach!! LOVED seeing wild horses every day, often in the back yard!! The house was great - tons of space, great views- be it the beach or the stars, awesome hot tub, and an amazing pool!! Super close to the beach. Only negative was the water in the house had a pungent odor of sulfur. Intermittent WiFi made for disconnecting on vacation. Laura was great - quick to respond to my numerous questions in planning our trip. Super easy to deal with and wouldn't hesitate to return to this or another Carova Cottages property!! Thanks again for a great stay and wonderful fist OBX impression!!

Owner's Response: THANKS for your nice review. We get spoiled by the stars here... I forget that they are spectacular!! ;-) Hope the sulfur water was short lived. This house has a water system that should have taken care of it. We'd love to have you return. Come back SOON!

Reviewer Comments:

I stayed at a different house last year with the same company, which is why I decided to rent again with the same company. Unfortunately, the quality of this house was not worth the money. The house was not clean, the stove wasn't working correctly (they need a new one), the screen doors were broken the nails on the deck were sticking out, the bathroom shower was dirty, it rained really hard while we were there and the sliding doors leaked, there was a strong smell of mold on the 1st and 2nd floor, so we stayed on the top floor most of the time. The only good thing, was the brand new pool, however, we never saw the pool being cleaned once and they are supposed to come once a week. The location of the house was good too. You can see and hear the ocean from the deck. Again, I think the management company was good and courteous but this house needs a lot of work.

Owner's Response: So sorry you were disappointed with your stay this year. We do our best to have owners upgrade their homes and this year's budget was spent on that gorgeous brand new pool. I will put your thoughts into the suggestion box for 2018. THANK you and see you next year.

Reviewer Comments:

The house is great. Any issues are handled very quickly. The pool is a nice size. Easy beach access across the dune but even better, we just loaded up the Jeep and drove down and parked. So easy. I originally was worried about the 7 mile beach drive but in my Wrangler, it was simple. Would definitely do the 4x4 area again and would definitely consider this house again. It's really a great property.

Owner's Response: THANK you so much for the nice review. That new pool is a GREAT size! The beach driving is scary for a lot of folks, but then it becomes old hat by the end of the week. Next year will be a breeze! ;-)

AMAZING! From NY to NC...Worth the trip

  • 1 of 5

AMAZING!

The view was amazing!

Laura a Dave was like having a personal concierge. Nothing was a problem. No request was denied. The description was accurate, property was clean, warm and welcoming. The 4 by 4 beach was interesting since us New Yorkers are not familiar with driving on the beach however when we needed to get out we did but spent most of the time at the house. There were plenty of bathrooms and enough for 8 to move around comfortably. I would absolutely recommend any property that Laura and Dave manages.

One thing to keep in mind: The traffic going in was rough by NY standards but the house was so welcoming that the aggravation of the traffic was erases within 5 minutes of stepping in the house. We left at 6 am (ish) and had no problems leaving. If you want a relaxing, get away from it, private (practically on the beach) vacation home...Then this is for you. We saw horses, pelicans, dolphins and happy vacationers. But honestly Laura and David made it very easy and I would go to them for any property to rent.
