Overview

About the property

6 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, Sleeps 16

**A 4x4 Vehicle is required to access this home**

This well-maintained home is in the four-wheel-drive section of the Outer Banks, Carova. Located just nine-miles into Carova, past where the road ends in Corolla.

This cottage is just a short walk to the beach, and a short walk to the canal behind the house that features a public boat ramp. The two decks face the ocean and the top deck has rocking chairs, the middle deck has three hammocks, and two hammocks are on the lower patio area, outside the fenced-in pool area. The pool area has a hot tub, lounge chairs and a fenced, gated area for young children and their safety.

Carova is known for its wide, clean beaches and make sure to keep an eye out for the wild Spanish Mustangs roaming about and the dolphins jumping in the ocean!

The great room, the kitchen, and the dining room are on the top floor. From these rooms, you will have views of the ocean and the sunsets over the sound. In the kitchen, there are two dishwashers, a smooth-top cook stove, a large center island with six barstools, and a side by side refrigerator with an ice-maker. The kitchen is well-stocked with many amenities insuring you will not run out of dishes, silverware, coffee cups, or wine glasses. The dining room has a ten-foot table that seats 16 guests; perfect for cracking crabs that can be caught in the canals that are located just one block behind the house.

Lower Level: This is the entry to the house where there is a bedroom with two sets bunk beds, a full hall bath with a tub/shower, the laundry area, the recreation room with a pool table and a foosball table, a wet bar with an extra refrigerator, and a sliding door to pool area.

Mid-Level: On this level, there is a king master bedroom with a tub/shower and a TV, there is a second king bedroom, a full hall bath that has a tub/shower, a third king bedroom which shares a bathroom with a shower, a bedroom with two sets bunks, as well as a den area with a TV share this level.

Upper Level: This level offers the living, kitchen and dining areas; all of which have views of the ocean and the sound. This level also has a master bedroom with a king bed and a half bath in the hall.

Beach Parking:

Currituck County has instated a parking permit system for Carova beach. Permits are not required to drive on the beach in order to access the house, however they are needed if you are planning to park on the shore to utilize the beach between May 25th and September 3rd. Each of our homes on the 4x4 beach will be provided with two parking passes that will need to be prominently displayed in your vehicle. The passes will need to be picked up from our Corolla office and there will be a $50 fee if they are not returned upon check-out.

Reviewer Comments:

Very upsettiexperienceng overall. It started with the keypad for the door that didn’t work, leaving us outside for nearly two hours, under pouring rain, with children. The agency finally gave us another way to enter. Once in the house, we discovered a very dirty interior. The house had clearly not been cleaned and prepared before we arrived. Despite the comment left on August 2017, the microwave door hasn’t been fixed, the blender is still not working, the pot still has a hole, and the other one is still missing a handle. On top of everything, the jacuzzi was out of order (we had to try to turn it on to know about it), as well as the fireplace (that we’ve been told wasn’t advertised on the website, even though it was on the pictures). The internet never worked, and the agency “sent” someone that we never saw. If you plan on renting this house, bring your own water in order to even brush your teeth, tap water being dirty and smelling like bleach. Toilets and bathtub were both clogged. Obx’s worth XP.

Tern and Stumble Inn - Good but not great

Reviewer Comments:

We were very concerned about this property after reading a review from the previous renter. After speaking with the rental company we were assured everything had been taken care of that this renter had concerns about. Upon entering the house, it was noted that the cleaning job was less than good. Dog hair and sand were clearly evident. In the pool area, the two lounge chairs were both broken. There was a door that opened up to a bathroom that was disgusting. Probably had not been maintained for years and would be better off being locked so renters did not have to look at it. The home itself was comfy but definitely in need of some TLC. Knobs missing on cabinets, you had to hold the door to the microwave in for it to work, etc. For me, I believe the money you pay for these houses should warrant better upkeep.
