Overview

About the property

8 Master Bedrooms, 6 With Ocean Views, Theater Room, Hot Tub, Pool, Wifi

Come down and enjoy a place like no other on the east coast. Drive your four wheel drive vehicle to the edge of the pavement, shift into the four wheel drive you don't use enough, and cruise up this beautiful sandy coast of eastern North Carolina. Experience the beach like it used to be for our great grandparents, wide open and free. **WARNING; After coming to this beach, every other beach you visit in your life will probably feel "crowded"** This area is also home to multiple bird sanctuaries and home to the wild Corolla horses, North Carolina's official state horses. These horses are believed to be descendants of wild mustangs brought over from Europe many, many years ago. They are absolutely beautiful animals and roam the area at will. Our house is located about 7 miles up the coast from the end of the pavement along one of the widest areas of beach in the area. When you arrive at the house you will enjoy all the modern amenities of today and some. This elevated Semi-oceanfront (one lot back) home features eight bedroom (4 Master King Ocean view bedrooms, 2 Master Queen Ocean view Bedrooms, 2 Duo bunk Bedrooms). There will be no fighting over bathrooms as every room has its own master bath. All the king and queen rooms have direct access to deck with ocean views. The sunrise is literally just outside your door. The large kitchen will make any Chef completely happy with an over sized oven, two dishwashers, two refrigerator/freezers and wine fridge. When is the last time you cooked and had views of the Atlantic Ocean just out the window? The dining room is very well sized with seating for the entire family with windows that allow you to watch the sunset over the woodlands to the west. Bring some popcorn, because the kids will absolutely enjoy movie night with the family in your own personal big screen theater room. Mom and dad will love having the private pool and hot tub to relax in with the family without worrying about sharing it with anyone else. No community pool here! This house was built with the sole purpose of making family memories that last. The beach is a short walk down an unimproved easement directly in front of the house or we always hop in the car and tailgate for the day. Hanging out at the beach with the family is sooo much fun. There is some limited parking for a family member that does not have a four wheel drive vehicles for a nominal charge about 8 miles from the house. Once you visit, we truly believe you will be back. Even if you do not rent our house, you need to experience this area sometime in your life.

About Tracy Halker

We have vacationed in this area for over 16 years and truly love this area. Our family has made so many memories in Carova over the years and we hope yours will also.

Tracy Halker purchased this house in 2015

Why Tracy Halker chose Outer Banks

We personally designed this house with a local architect to offer some of the best amenities and views around. Over the years we have vacationed here and chose one of the tallest lots and widest areas of the four wheel drive beach to build our house by. This house was build for the vacationing extended family to enjoy.

Fantastic vacation

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our time spent at Crystal Cove. The homeowners are top notch; extremely helpful and accommodating. It was so exciting to see the wild horses daily and to see the beautiful sunrises/sunsets from the gorgeous porches and huge dining room windows. We will definitely return to Crystal Cove next year. Thanks again Tracy and family!

Modern House, Amazing Amenities and Incredible Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a family summer vacation and could not have been more impressed with the house and amenities (pool, hot tub, beach access, theater room, views etc.). We found many houses there were a bit outdated, but not Crystal Cove - the kitchen with double refrigerators, double dishwashers, wine fridge, modern furniture and open floor plan made this easily a 5+ star stay. Every bedroom had an equally great view and set-up. The house even had a high chair and Pack N Play for little ones.

To top it off, the homeowners could not have been more responsive. They provided excellent recommendations and the property maintenance team was so attentive. We drove up during the Hermine tropical storm and the next morning a full team was out to ensure the house was in perfect condition (checked the roof, windows, cleaned the pool), which it was even after the wind and rain. If we needed anything, there was no doubt that Tracy or the wonderful property management team would respond immediately.

A few recommendations for anyone traveling to Corolla/4x4 beaches: pick up a lot of bottled waters for your stay on the way in (you will go through it quickly!), bring bug spray (just a day or two there were some flies on the beach - easy price to pay to be so close to the wild horses though), no need to pack a lot of indoor or beach toys - the house had a tremendous amount, try crabbing - Tracy's recommendation to go up the road a bit made for such a great family morning while we waited for the sun to come out.

Looking forward to planning next summer's trip back to Carova - truly a one-of-a-kind experience with the wild horses, driving on the beach and 5+ star property.

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house is exactly as pictured. It was clean, modern and well organized. The homeowners were responsive and helpful. This house is in what may be the best area of the 4x4 beaches. Nice, wide beach, not too shelly, not too close to the entrance where there is more traffic. We absolutely fell in love with this area. The pool was always warm and not too sandy, nice hot tub, plethora of sand toys for kids. Overall, we had a wonderful time and made great memories. The only issues we had were unrelated to the house itself, mostly to do with wifi. If you want to find a place to literally check out, relax and be with your family, this is the place.

Absolutely amazing and very homey, comfortable, And plenty of everything that we needed.

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely amazing we were across the street from the beach and we could see it over the dunes. The horses were around day and night. The property was perfect ,we needed nothing but the food we bought from the Food Lion the day after arrival. The bedrooms were perfect, the media room was perfect , and the living space was more than enough for everyone on our trip. We had seven boys ages 9 to 2 and there was never lack of anything for them to do. They did a treasure hunt, they swam all day, went to the beach which was just a walk away. This was our first trip to Corolla beach and it will not be our last and this is the place that will rent again the next time we go. The owners were always available by phone if we needed anything and were more than willing to help. Everything was very well-maintained and we also treated as if it was our own home too. It was perfect, perfect, perfect. Definitely a five star review

PERFECT HOME AND LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here 6/4/16-6/11/16. The house was perfect in every way. Pool was nice size, house was clean, beach was steps away and felt private. We had at least 200 yards of beach all for us everyday. Very relaxing trip for us. Spent almost everyday at pool and beach. Tracy reached out to us via email a few times during our stay to see how everything was and give us some tips on local attractions. You don't get that from a rental agency. We cannot wait to stay here again. Almost forgot...The theater room was an awesome place to watch the now Stanley Cup Champions Pittsburgh Penguins whoop up on the Sharks.

Beautiful Beach House - Great Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location, great house, awesome time with family and friends! What a rush seeing the wild horses in our first few hours there. The house is really beautifully decorated. We especially enjoyed the movie room. So much room for all of us, we always felt we could get away, and the main room upstairs was large enough for all of us to hang out and play games. We can't wait until we are able to come back for another visit.

The wild mustangs of Corolla live in this area and are a must see while visiting. False Cape State park is around 6 miles away and offers a beautiful place to shell and hike.
