The Bayberry Cottage is named for the wild bayberry bushes which scatter the landscape of Carova Beach in the Outer Banks. This luxurious and updated retreat is located in the 4WD area of Corolla, in the first cluster of homes encountered after leaving the paved road. Here, you have the adventure and privacy of an off-road vacation but are still located within minutes of "civilization." With every upscale amenity provided in the home, however, you may find trips to town unnecessary.
The retreat boasts unparalleled 360 degree views of the ocean and sound, enjoyed from nearly every room in the home and from our dual-level wrap-around porches. Sitting on 3.5 acres of unspoiled land, you will be immersed in the beauty of coastal NC. Enjoy your coffee viewing the sunrise over the Atlantic and your evening cocktails with the sunset over the sound and Penny's Hill, which is the second largest natural sand dune on the East Coast. Wild horses roam freely, and you may see one or a pack strolling along the beaches or by the house.
With 8 comfortable bedrooms (all with new, modern, tasteful decor) and 8 private full baths/1 half bath, your party can enjoy time together but also have their own private retreats. The expansive living room with views galore boasts a new sectional sofa to accomodate everyone comfortably while playing board games, watching TV, or catching up. We provide a wonderful collection of novels for your enjoyment on the beach. There is dining for 20 and a beautiful kitchen equipped to handle large groups. There are two dishwashers, 2 ovens, 2 refrigerators (one at the ground level kitchenette) two sinks, two microwaves, two blenders, toaster oven, two coffee makers, and much more, including plenty of place settings, utensils and gadgets for a delicious summer feast! The Captain's Watch area on the top floor hosts a table that can be used for family games and cards (provided in the home) or as extra dining (part of the total 20). The views of the sound and sunset are amazing from this spot.
In the home you will find 10 TV's, all with DISH satellite cable service and tons of channels. Every bedroom and both gathering rooms have a cable TV with movie channels and tons of programming. There is wifi internet (the very best available in our area), and it is great for emails, handhelds, and texts, though not great for streaming movies.
The ground floor game room is a fun spot, with a full sized pool table, mini kitchen area including a full-sized refrigerator and microwave, pub table, half bath (with two private showers outside), sofa, 3 TV's with Satellite, and wall mounted speaker system. This room opens to the gated pool deck, which includes a pool, beautiful stone finished in-ground stainless steel hot tub, tiki bar with bar stools, mini fridge and outlets (blenders for Margaritas sound nice!), and lots of deck chairs and loungers. There is plenty of deck space around the pool and house for lounging, sunning, visiting, and taking in the abundant beauty.
Come enjoy your next vacation at the Bayberry Cottage! We would love to have you.
