Guest Rating:

Vacation rental house. Sleeps 12, 5 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms. Dogs allowed.

1627 Sandpiper Rd Corolla, NC 27927 United States

SATURDAY CHECK IN - 4 WHEEL DRIVE REQUIRED - LINENS PROVIDED - TOWELS NOT PROVIDED - Approximately 3 miles up the 4x4 beach

Bring your 4x4 and prepare for the adventure of a lifetime! Carova is home to the famed wild horses, and no commercial spaces. Seclusion, serenity and relaxation are the main ingredients in this area, but if that isn't your thing, don't fret. Horseplay has quite a few diversions!

Something for everyone: pool table, hot tub, heated pool, gourmet kitchen, whirlpool and comfortable spaces for solitude, gatherings and celebrations. Three living areas for every possibility. Choose your own adventure; you'll never want to leave.

This gorgeous five-bedroom home is located less than five hundred feet from the beach. It boasts magnificent views of the ocean from all three levels. Wake up to amazing sunrises over the Atlantic Ocean and relax on the deck and watch the sun set over the Currituck Sound.

Living areas on each floor of this home wind down or gear up. The first-level game room comes equipped with a pool table and kitchenette complete with sink, full-size refrigerator and microwave. Watch the big game or your favorite movie on the flat screen TV or take advantage of the Wi-Fi broadband and an audio system that features indoor and outdoor speakers.

The first-level has a master bedroom with two twin beds and private master bathroom, a queen sleeper sofa and a ½ bath. The hot tub and swimming pool with a salt treatment system and optional heater is just steps away (pool heat incurs additional fee). Ocean views abound from the hot tub! Turn the corner and you will find an outside shower with a bench and hooks for your belongings.

The second-level boasts another living area for watching TV, a desk and a wrap-around deck accessible by two master king bedrooms that is great for lounging and watching the surf. A third master bedroom on this level offers two pyramid bunk beds.

The third-level Great Room with a convenient half-bath provides spacious and comfortable accommodations, inviting you to relax and enjoy expansive ocean views. The well-equipped gourmet kitchen with granite countertops and two dishwashers beckons you to bring your “A” game and show off your culinary skills. Two large dining tables provide plenty of space to spread out and enjoy a comfortable meal. As the waves roll in, watch for dolphins playing in the surf. Grab the binoculars and search for families of horses grazing in the dunes. At the end of the night, retire into the master king bedroom that features a whirlpool tub and separate shower, and fall asleep in serenity.

Create your memories at Horseplay - an enchanting home where the wild horses roam!

    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.
