Overview

About the property

6 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Sleeps 16

“ALMOST PARADISE”

True paradise living located 7 miles north on Carova beach. A quiet and relaxing vacation awaits you in this extensively remodeled 6 bedroom 4 bath home. The top floor offers generous space with beautiful furniture and bright wood floors offering both a comfortable and beautiful area for the family to gather with a view of the Atlantic Ocean as a backdrop. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and there are flat screen TVs throughout.

The smart design and layout provides large eastern facing windows to allow healthy natural light to flood the upper level. Enjoy the sunrise from the multilevel wrap around decks or spy some of the most famous residents of Carova: the legendary heard of wild Spanish mustangs as they graze on the dunes or frolic by the sea.

With the 14'x28' private pool and the multiple levels of decking there is ample outdoor space with breathtaking views of the ocean. Sip a cool beverage by the pool or enjoy a game of billiards on the lower level. If you are itching to sink your toes into the warm sand by the ocean, this semi-ocean front home is a short walk to the beach and of course, should you choose to take advantage of one of the greatest benefits of the 4 wheel drive beaches, you can load up your vehicle with everything the family will need for a day on the most pristine and remote beaches on the northern Outer Banks.

Carova was voted Best US Beach in February 2014 by Coastal Living Magazine!

Reviewer Comments:

All of us were really pleased with the location of Almost was just as advertised. We would have liked to have had bathmats/hand towels provided, although all of us knew we each had to bring our own towel. Property management was helpful before our stay, and kind enough to give us a warning about possible changing weather conditions when Maria might have made its way up the Outer Banks.

Reviewer Comments:

We loved the house. The only problem was the pool. It wasn't properly grounded, so, we didn't use it after the first day. We shared this with the pool maintenance company but the only solution was to put down rubber mats beside the pool. Fortunately, friends were staying next door so we used their pool (they didn't have the same problem with their pool). We wouldn't rent this house again.

Reviewer Comments:

Almost Paradise is at a great location on the 4x4 area. It takes about 20 minutes to drive. Horses visited us daily. Easy walk to the beach. The pool was great for the children (ages 2-13 in our group). Overall it was great for what we needed. The house was nice. It could do with some maintenance. We had to hammer down the nails on the deck. The hammock had a huge hole in it. The light in the pool at night gave a small electric shock so we turned it off. The house wasn't super clean but not terrible. The couch had a ton of sand stuck between the cushions. It could do with some work, but fine for what we needed.

Had a great time. House was very nice. Wasn't as clean as we would have liked when we first arrived but acceptable. Called to find out why tv's didn't work. Never got a call back but time with family was better because of it. Great location and would return if back on the outer banks.

We had a wonderful vacation. Home is beautifully decorated and spacious. We enjoyed the proximity to the beach (a short walk over the dunes), the pool, and the hot tub. The beach was very clean and we enjoyed morning walks. This rental is located 7 miles north on 4x4 Carova Beach. We had a relaxing vacation.
