SATURDAY CHECK IN - 4 WHEEL DRIVE REQUIRED - LINENS AND TOWELS PROVIDED - Approximately 3 miles up the 4x4 beach

Welcome to 'Lightly Salted', one of Swan Beach's finest cottages perched against oceanfront dunes of the wild and beautiful Outer Banks of North Carolina. This home boasts unobstructed views of blue-green waves, bubbling white surf, and wide, sandy, wheat toned beaches as far as the eye can see. The enchantment begins as soon as your 4x4 vehicle leaves the pavement to drive right on the sand, only a few feet from the roar of the surf.

Panoramic views, state of the art electronics, exceptional quality bedding and Sleep Number® beds, delicious drinking water and a well-stocked kitchen are at your disposal. The state of the art electronics systems include a 55 inch Sony LED HDTV in the living room and 32 inch Samsung HDTV's in every bedroom, all connected to every channel offered by Directv, the 'Ultimate Package' and NFL package. Panasonic Surround Sound and accounts with Pandora and Netflix offer an unbeatable movie and music experience. The pool stereo system brings the tunes outside to the pool and picnic area with large hot tub and a gas grill. The ground floor half bath and mini fridge make poolside entertainment a breeze. Hop out of the pool and walk 50 feet across the dune to the ocean!

The extremely well equipped kitchen has all new major appliances, cookware, utensils and small appliances. Brew your morning coffee in the Keurig, Mr Coffee, or thermal coffee pot and enjoy it while watching the waves from the screened porch just off the kitchen.

Sleep Number® beds with dual comfort controls and 400 thread count linens are in 4 rooms: the third floor master king and queens for three more bedrooms. The kid's room with bunk set and pull out futon has an X-Box 360 Kinect with games provided. Fall asleep to your private music selection with the iPad, iPod, iPhone docking station stereos located in every bedroom.

Spend a luxurious week enjoying the beach, watching the wild horses graze and relaxing to the sound of the pounding surf from the well-appointed accommodations of 'Lightly Salted'.

Rating Details:

The property manager was more than helpful.

The vacation rental was somewhat dirty.

I was somewhat unhappy with the location.

I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

Lightly Salted was very nice -- the kitchen table and counters could have been a little cleaner. It did not appear the pool or hot tub had been cleaned as there was ALOT of sand, bugs, etc in pool and a film on hot tub the whole week. Since there is so much sand on the 4x4, the pool should probably be cleaned midweek as well. Also, while we had a great week, would probably not stay on the 4x4 beach again - just too far from everything.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay at Lightly Salted! It is only 3.5 miles to the hard road, but that drive can be about 15 minutes in the summertime. It feels longer though when you are hungry! Carova is nicely secluded, but seclusion means dealing with the natural environment; bugs and SAND. The pool operator cleans the pool and hot tub on the Saturday check in day. Levels are checked midweek and any adverse conditions are rectified. If the wind is blowing, you will have sand in the pool as soon the pool operator is finished. It doesn't affect the cleanliness of the water and is perfectly safe for your family. So sorry you have decided Carova is not for you. It isn't for everyone, but this home is one of the best on the beach. UNOBSTRUCTED views, excellent outdoor seating, luxury bedding, SLEEP NUMBER beds and easy access to Corolla.

Reviewer Comments:

I visited Lighted Salted with my 85 year old Mom, and two other friends well into their 80’s. They loved the house, and being able to sit on the deck and watch the waves and read. I loved being able to bring my two dogs. The manager of the property was fabulous, making sure we had everything we needed. Sometimes you rent these places and can never track down the management company, but Laura answered texts asap...even when we asked her for directions. The owner needs to address the screen issue in the house. Many windows do not have screens so there was no cross-ventilation in most of the rooms. Many of the screens were torn so the house was full of flies. Others renters have noted this, so the owner really needs to get on it....

Owner's Response: THANKS for your review. We will be sure to get those screens back in top shape! There are more bugs in the fall months so that was a double whammy for you! Hope you will come back and try again! The sights from that comfortable top deck at Lightly Salted are pretty awesome, so no need to even go to the beach. It is RIGHT THERE!

Lightly Salted was amazing! The home was just as we expected. This home is set up to please ALL vacationers. All we needed was our personal items and food. Carova Cottage staff was wonderful! They answered any questions we had as we were watching Hurricane Irma before our arrival. Driving on the beach was truly an experience and so glad we chose the 4x4 area. We saw the horses just about every day. They even gave us a show in the back yard of the house and came up on the lower deck! Our stay was awesome! Thank you so much for sharing your home!

Reviewer Comments:

We had a wonderful stay very relaxing and a lot of fun. The house was great. The sand was challenging on the first day- recommend getting there early before check in time and staying on beach until can access house. Location was great with an awesome view of the beach. We also had the horses right on the side of the house one night. I would highly recommend this house and this vacation.

Owner's Response: Lightly Salted has the BEST VIEWS! They are unobstructed and will stay that way since the lots in front are not build-able. So glad the horses came to visit. Come again soon!
