What makes this house unique

This home was built with the smaller family group in mind, and still includes your private pool and hot tub.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Summer Paws was the perfect place for our family to spend our Outer Banks vacation. This is our fourth year staying in the 4 wheel drive area and it never disappoints. Great weather (HOT!), plenty of horses, a dolphin sighting and a great fireworks display at the Whalehead Club on the 4th.

Reviewer Comments:

Everything was perfect. Yes there is sand. Sand on the beach, on the dunes and on your toes. Clean, quiet and away from the crowds. Remote but with all the comforts of home. Bring your family and the dog because all are welcome. A rare little piece of paradise. If you are looking to go out for dinner every night or shop with the tourists you may want to stay closer to Duck. If you want privacy and seclusion this is the area for you. See you in 2017! Dan, Joanne and Ripple And Laura you are great! Thanks for everything! Every question i had from towels to weather conditions were answered within minutes. I would love a gas grill next year ;)

Great house and perfect location! Close to volunteer fire department where you get ice and just a very short, less than 1 min, drive to the beach. The pool was clean and very refreshing! There was a wonderful breeze from every porch. Very clean and homey feel. My only suggestion to the homeowner would be to upgrade the mattresses. They were not the worst I have ever slept on but they weren't the most comfortable either, even with the mattress toppers. Overall though wonderful vacation home and I would not hesitate to recommend this property to a anyone and plan to rent again in the future!!

Reviewer Comments:

We enjoyed our stay at Summer Paws. Laura was very helpful with questions we had. Location was perfect for us. Far enough down the beach that you did not have many day trippers and a short walk from the house to the beach. The property could use some upgraded furnishings. The mattresses are not comfortable (much better with the mattress pad) and the dinning set has seen better days. We loved the pool, used it every day. Loved the screened in area on the top deck. Loved the lay out of the house. Great view of sunrise and sunset from the deck. Plenty of star gazing. Horses came to visit almost everyday as well as deer, frogs and a snake!

For my family it worked out well. Although the beach travel to and from the house kept us from any unnecessary trips - returning to Corolla for groceries on only 2 occasions. So we occupied our time with beach and pool activities

The house was great, really nice and clean, we got to enjoy watching the wild horses come up to the house every day. Laura and David were a pleasure to deal with and provided many tips and suggestions. There is a 3 min walk to the beach and if you wake up early you can be alone on the beach enjoying the sunrise with the wild horses.

Reviewer Comments:

The home is in a fairly nice location, only 1 house close by and the beach is steps away. There is a nice ocean view from the upper decks. However, the furnishings and general repair of the place are really substandard for the price point, everything is cheap quality and sparse. There are no window coverings in the living area and the house next door has a direct view into the space. The sliding doors don't open in the 2nd bedroom and the ceiling fans wobble and squeak terribly. The beds are very cheap and the mattresses are horribly uncomfortable. Our backs were aching all week. The pool area was poorly landscaped and dirty. The beach equipment is gross. The decks, view and screened porch were nice. The horses come right into the yard so you will get some great pictures of them. The management company, Laura and her husband, are excellent and very responsive to anything you need. The shortcomings of the property are the owners and how they have outfitted the place. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this property for the price they are charging.

Owner's Response: There are a few easily remedied issues here. We were called about the slider and we took some WD-40 over, but they asked that we just leave it for them to use. We would have been happy to use it for them so that the door and the squeaky fan were no longer an issue. The pool area is cleaned prior to each stay. If the wind blows, there will be sand in the pool area as well as the pool. Landscaping is not something that most owners choose to do on the 4x4 beach. Most owners choose the natural look. We do not provide any beach equipment other than canvas beach chairs. Suntan lotion can stain the canvas. There are mattress toppers in the closet, for those people who prefer a softer mattress. The furniture and room decor are displayed correctly in the advertising photos. This owner doesn't choose a lot of clutter. It is a personal decision. This area is more expensive than a lot of the Outer Banks. The homes here take more capital and more resources to operate. We believe the price for this home is reflective of the area. Our goal is to make our guests happy. We strive for resolution to all concerns.

Map

Carova beach is a four wheel drive beach, located at border of north carolina and virginia, hence the name caro- va. You must drive on sand to access the home. Carova is also home to the wild horse herd of north carolina. It is a thrill to wake up to the sounds of horses outside your door, eating and playing.
