Carova, Outer Banks, North Carolina

Our 'Pet-Friendly' home is located in one of the few secluded beaches left in America. Wild Spanish Horses roam free in this very special place on earth. This unique stretch of beach can only be accessed by a four-wheel drive vehicle. Our beach house sits 8.5 miles from the pavement in Corolla Beach, NC. This drive will take you about 30 minutes depending on conditions. Our canal-front home, which can be also be accessed by boat, has a bulk-headed dock and boat ramp. It's only a 1500 foot walk to the beach or a 2-minute drive. Our house has some ocean views from the third floor.

According to 'USA Weekend,' Corolla and Carova Beach have been described as ''one of the 10 best undiscovered beaches on the East Coast.''

We booked this house for a family reunion. The house was just as described. Kitchen is well stocked with cooking needs, place settings, bar glasses, appliances etc. Everything is clearly marked so easy to find. The two kitchen areas (including 2 sinks and refrigerators) made prep time and food / drink storage easy. The Pool and hot tub were a...

Management response:

Thanks so much Jerri! You guys were great and I appreciate your patience and understanding with the pool issue!

Stayed at the Sandy Cheeks for our April vacation with friends and our young children. House is amazing and accommodated all 5 families with no problems. Really enjoyed the hot tub ( especially after kids went to bed!) and the pool. Kids stayed in a pool practically all day. There is grill, so it was easy to prepare meals and...

Our first family vacation was amazing the house, area, and the owner all was so amazing! Didn't want to leave. The beach house was very clean and beautiful inside and the outside was very private which we love. Kids had a blast. Would definitely stay here again!

About the neighborhood
Newly Renovated-8 bedroom 7.5 bath home-Canal Front-Private Location with beautiful wildlife all around. Wild horses visit daily. Herons white and blue fish all day long just feet from your house!
Getting around
Four Wheel Drive Vehicles are necessary! Our home is about 8.5 miles up the beach from where the pavement ends in Corolla. If you've never been, it's beautiful and adventurous and just amazing. There is no better way to explore the area, take in the scenery, get away from it all and see lots of wild horses than to STAY here in Carova Beach!!
