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. **New for 2017= Poolside Bar**

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.

Grad School Graduation Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic family trip to celebrate a graduation from graduate school. It was wonderful to unwind and enjoy quality time with loved ones. The house is beautiful, clean, and comfortable. The beach is a short walk over the dunes, wild horses can be seen grazing on the beach and around the house, and the pool provided a great place to cool off for those who didn't care to brave the cold ocean water. We had a fantastic time and have already talked about returning some day for another great vacation. Thank you!!

Loved Crystal Cove in every way possible!!

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family is already talking about a return visit to Crystal Cove. Tracy the owner is very accommodating to your every need. If I had a question or concern he was very fast with answers, right down to sending a packet ( he took the time to stop and gather) of all the brochures about the area. The house was awesome. Our weather was not the best so we only used the pool a few days. There was enough to keep us busy even with out good weather. Lots of walks on the beach and fishing. The horses were by the house daily! The house is well equipped with all you need to cook at home. The movie theater was a big plus with the little ones. I really can't say enough good things about our experience at your get away home. Thankyou Hacker family !

Wonderful week in a beautiful house and setting.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time. Weather was perfect, house was great and the beach setting was just what we needed. Horses were everywhere. Truly a unique experience. Thank you for enabling a wonderful spring break.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great stay. I hope you were able to enjoy the Currituck Easter egg hunt at the Whalehead Club or Gravedigger's Monster egg hunt at Diggers Dungeon. Talking to you after your stay I know you tried to put in 5 stars. Hopefully HomeAway can correct it in their system as we really take pride in helping our guest have a 5+ star vacation. I hope you can stay at our house again sometime. Thanks, Tracy and family

Great house and perfect location for an adventure and away from all the commotion

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay!! House was perfect for multiple families and kids. The movie room was an added bonus especially on the rainy days. We loved how remote this home felt. It really was an adventure to travel on the 4x4 part of the beach to get to the house. Such awesome memories for my kids. Loved the wildlife and horses that roamed the area. The homeowner was great to work with too. Answered questions promptly before, during and after our trip. Overall great vacation spot and highly recommend. If I were to give any thoughts for improvement, it would be to just offer more linens and towels per bedroom. One set didn't last too long and had to do laundry several times, but this is getting picky. This definitely didn't break the vacation though. A lot of fun and memories were made while staying at Crystal Cove. Thanks again.

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.

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.
