    a guest from Noblesville, IN recommends this vacation rental

    Horseplay was a great place to stay for our family’s first trip to the outer banks! It had everything we needed. The hot tub and pool were great. We went in mid/ October so we added pool heat and it was perfect. It was an easy 3 min walk to the beach. Laura was awesome! We left a few things accidentally after our stay and she shipped them to us immediately. She was always willing to answer questions.

    • Manager Responded on 10/27/2017

      THANK you for the nice review. We are so glad to be able to offer pool heat for those chilly fall months. Sometimes the ocean is warm enough but buying the pool heat is playing it safe! Hope you can make it back next fall.

    Stephen T from Flemington, NJ recommends this vacation rental

    Arrived at Horseplay to find everything in order. Laura James was excellent in insuring the home was ready and any problems were addressed. House is in great location to the beach (two minute walk). Kitchen was well stocked. Really enjoyed eating in enclosed porch during sunset. My dog had lots of space to play and relax. If you want to see wild horses, they frequently pass through and even stay on the property. Swimming pool and hot tub nice for a cooler day or when the ocean waters are rough. I highly recommend this property.

    • Manager Responded on 1/15/2018

      THANK you for the nice review. You managed to capture the essence of relaxation that comes with a stay at Horseplay. It is a nice spacious house with an easy walk to the beach! Sunsets from the screened porch with a nice meal and family gathered around... PERFECT!

    Danielle N from Toronto, ON recommends this vacation rental

    We had such a great time at Horseplay! Laura, the property manager was always very responsive to all our pre-trip questions and the odd question we had while at the house.
    Horseplay was clean, well equipped, comfy...exactly as others had reviewed. The pool was perfect - and take the advise of management - summer heat sufficiently heats the pool!
    When we arrived on the beach to drive to the house, within a few minutes of our drive we not only saw some wild horses, we also saw dolphins jumping out of the water. All week long we continued to see playful dolphins and horses. The horses were both at the beach and around the house. Absolutely amazing.
    A few notables - not negatives, more just nice to knows. Weekends are very busy on the island but if you stay out of Duck you will avoid most of this traffic. Arriving ahead of your check in time is advisable to get ahead of the weekend beach traffic. Also, for those with kids, cars do get the right of way on the beach...this is especially important during low tide.
    Overall, our group of 8 (4 adults and 4 kids) had a fabulous week. We definitely recommend this house and the area. What an incredible experience we had!

    • Manager Responded on 8/1/2017

      THANKS so much for the nice review. The wildlife here is so thrilling! We never tire of watching the horses, particularly when they are playing! The beach driving is part of the excitement, but you are right, it is a little unnerving when relaxing on the beach. Using a vehicle for a barricade is pretty effective, but even so, Carova is definitely not your typical beach setting! There is an untamed feel here that is part of the draw! I hope you will return to Horseplay again. Come in September and we'll crank that pool heat up! ;-)

    Our family of 11 aged 1 to 84 had a very peaceful week with perfect weather. The house was roomy enough that anyone who wanted quiet alone time could have it. The pool and hot tub were wonderful, the kitchen well equipped, and the views spectacular. Loved the horses and lizards too.

    We had a great time. Accommodations are clean and comfortable and perfect for a large family stay. We woke up to horses 3 out of 7 days right outside this house. Perfect place to unplug listen to the waves and get away from the hustle and bustle.
