Three floors of space, room for the family! Set your cares adrift and come to Castaway Cove!

Gather the family, pack your bags, jump in the four wheel drive, and come to Swan Beach. With room for two to four couples plus a few kids, this house is sure to please. You’ll start your perfect day watching the sun come up over the ocean, and then maybe off to the beach. You might like to spend the afternoon around the pool, enjoy a sunset from the crow’s nest, and dinner grilled and enjoyed on the deck. Afterwards, sit down and take in a DVD in the media room. Just 3 miles from the end of the paved road. Ocean views from the upper decks and crow’s nest and just about 900 feet to beach. The custom here is to drive to the beach, park right there in the middle of the beach and have all your stuff handy.

Four wheel drive required. You must drive 3 miles on the sandy beach to access home. All-wheel-drive vehicles not recommended.

This property is managed by Carova Rentals which serves the 4WD area exclusively. We are a small local vacation rental company able to provide personalized concierge service, including a beach escort to your house if you are unfamiliar with driving on the beach and the off-road area. Bed and bath linens are provided in season, and you will find sufficient toilet paper, paper towels, soap, and drinking water to get you started. Carova Beach is convenient for families with children and older folks because it is not necessary to walk to the beach. You can load beach chairs, coolers, and beach toys into your truck or SUV and drive to the beach. You will set up right next to your vehicle and pets are welcome on the beach.

This was our families first time in OBX and we had a amazing time. The house was absolutely huge!!! The beds were comfortable beyond belief, the whole house was clean, neat, well stocked (way more than we expected) There was a nice extremely informative binder waiting on the kitchen counter for us with everything we would need to know while there for vacation. Plus each room had a sealed package of towels, wash clothes and hand towels were all provided we just brought our beach towels. Bed linens were also provided. we had a issue with the pool on Memorial day, i sent a text to Karen and she quickly responded and then sent someone out within a couple hours to fix it, we had another issue with the pool on another day and before the end of the day it was fixed again. Excellent and courteous service. The wild horses were abundant and were all around the house, the beach, ect, we have some amazing pictures. There is also a outdoor shower that is covered, private and....Has hot water...simply amazing as i was expecting only cold water. There are 4 main rooms that all have sliding glass doors that go out to the porches, 2nd level are right convenient to the hot tub and was clean, hot and comfortable (there were a couple of us that have never been in one so it was a true experience). Oh and there are beach chairs, seats, buckets after buckets of beach toys for the Children so don't worry about getting any of that to drag along to your vacation as it is all provided. Including swimming equipment, boogie boards, ect. the pool area has a abundant amount of tables, chairs, recliner chairs for sun bathing and a outside bar right under the deck! The whole house has Central zoned AC which kept us very comfortable. The kitchen is huge and well stocked with every pot, pan, dish, silverware, cup, wine glass, shot glasses, kids cups, little kids silverware ect. there is also a booster seat and a nice pack-n-play. hmmm....i don't know what else i may have forgotten...well anyways we are already booking this same Amazing place for next yr oh and it has amazing sunsets and sunrises and is not even a minute drive to the beach!!!!!!!! Thank You Karen for making a memorable Family Vacation we are all excited and counting down the days until we come next May!! You ROCK!!!!
