I highly recommend Carova Beach! We've seen what you'd expect at the Outer Banks...beautiful sunsets, sunrises, peaceful isolation, seagulls. But in this 4x4 area, we've also seen gorgeous wild horses, on the beach & in the front yard of our rental. Dolphins too!
Happy to share some pics!
Now...please trust me on this one. Make sure your car rental place "guarantees" 4x4 - you'll need it. We had to drive 9 miles on the beach to get to our place. Low tide is best time to make the trek.
Pack all you need for the week, unless you're a 4x4 junkie & prefer frequent trips back to Carolla.
We rented "Sundancer" - nice place & 9 bedrooms. Top 2 floors heavenly, 1st floor needs work.
Think I'll rent next door next year - "Sands of Time" - if you have a big, fun family or event, it's amazing -- we're talking ping pong, pool, fussball, darts, you name it... And super nice family that owns it.
My oldest teenager is a little bored but everyone else is in R&R heaven!
Have fun & happy to.answer any.additional questions...
