About

BIKINIS and BELLINIS, formerly known as SCREAMIN' MIMI is a LOVELY six bedroom home on the 4x4 beach with great views of the ocean. New owners are making it their own with many decor changes.

Bellinis and Bikinis is a beautifully maintained 3rd row home with WONDERFUL views of the ocean and a short walk to the 4x4 beach. Outside you will find a gas or charcoal grill and a HUGE pool with plenty of lounging space. Relax in the hot tub before heading inside to the game room on level one. Here you will find a pool table, streaming tv, and plenty of comfortable seating.

On level two there are four bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms (K, Q) have east deck access and private baths. A two twin room also has east deck access and shares a hallway bath with the two twin bunk sets room. The fourth bedroom is a Queen with private bath. Every room is as desirable as the last, so no worries about claiming a space, they are all superb.

Just off the Great Room on level three is a KING bedroom with private bath, deck access and roku tv. The gorgeous views in the living room are enough to keep you entertained, but there is also a huge selection of movies!. The well equipped kitchen is a joy even though new cabinets/counters are planned for 2024. The gourmet selection of tools and equipment make meal prep a joy. And just in case you have trouble boiling water, there is safety on the sidelines of the large kitchen island. The rule at my house is that dishes will be done by the folks who don't cook... don't worry, even that will be a joy in this well planned kitchen!

We had an amazing week here, the house is beautiful with tasteful and elegant decor. It has everything you could need, well stocked kitchen, two dishwashers great for large groups, the pool and hot tub are clean and have lots of seating, nice beach chairs available, and is the first house in Carova I have visited where the water didn’t smell like sulfur thanks to the filtration system at the house. Thanks for making our stay amazing!

Manager's Response

So glad your stay was amazing!! The new owners of Bikinis and Bellinis have really worked hard to include everything someone might want! They have a knack for making you feel at home! Additions continue as after you departed, they put in lighting around the pool and an arcade game in the level one game room. Improvements galore are the order of business. This winter a new kitchen is being installed. I hope you guys will come again to experience the improvements!!

Wow, is all I can say about our vacation week! We had perfect weather and the perfect house! We have been coming to OBX for 10 years now and this was by far the best house we have ever stayed in. The extra amenities - beach gear, indoor/outdoor games, fire pit, hot tub/pool, new grills, and so much more made this stay fantastic. The house was the cleanest one we have ever stayed in and the extra personal touches made it even better. This was our first time staying on the 4x4 beach and we enjoyed the laid back atmosphere so much. We only left the house/beach one time to venture into Corolla to climb the lighthouse, do some shopping and eat out. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to make our favorite meals each night.
Laura and Dave were so accommodating and quick to resolve any issue or answer any question we had. They even brought firewood over one night so we could have a s'mores night in the outdoor fire pit. We enjoyed talking with them when they stopped by to take care of something and realizing that they used to live near us in Maryland...such a small world!!
We appreciate you sharing your beach house with us and look forward to visiting again soon!

Manager's Response

THANKS so much for your nice review and your kind words! We are so happy you love Bikinis and Bellinis! The amenities really make a vacation so much fuller, particularly if the weather doesn't cooperate. Sounds like that was not the issue here! lol. We can all hope for PERFECT weather.

Please come again.. we'd love to have you. :-)

The home is amazing and has everything you need and more. We didn’t have the best weather but there was so much in the home that we were able to have an amazing time. Horses were in the yard daily and the kids loved it! Property manager was quick to respond to our questions and we even had a few laughs :)

Manager's Response

And the laughing continues. I love my job.. meeting nice people and helping them have a good time! Thanks so much for your nice review. Bikinis and Bellinis really doesn't disappoint. All the extra touches make it an easy place to relax, even on the rainy days. Maybe next year should be TWO weeks, then you are sure to get a few nice days in! ;-) More laughs too!

Manager's Response

LOL. We'll have to get a bigger toaster.!!! But sounds like that was not a deal breaker for you! Let me know next time and I'll bring an extra over. haha.

So glad you enjoyed the vacation. Even with some black snake activity. The one thing I say about snakes is they earn their keep by keeping the mice down.

It sounds like you all enjoyed your family time at Bikinis and Bellinis. I hope you will consider a return stay soon!

We had another great vacation. We have stayed at 3 properties from Carova Cottages over the last three years. Each house has been a different size and different features. But every year, as all vacations have, we have things that go wrong or are missing or broken,etc. certain things can ruin a vacation. For every vacation to the OBX we haven taken care of above and beyond with Laura at Carova Cottages. They truly care about whether u had a good time. She had a hot tub guy out as soon as the motor stopped. She answered every text we had about some high tech appliances and even spoke to the owner when we had an issue. Vacations will always have things go wrong but if the property managers are anything like Carova Cottages then you will be well taken care of.
This specific house was newly updated and very beautiful. It has every thing you need except a keurig which Laura ended up bringing us one before check in. The pool table could be updated and they need new pool sticks. But other than that the house is beautiful, updated, and big. You don’t deal with any people around your house as you are two rows back from the ocean. We saw one herd of horses multiple times In our yard. 10/10 would stay at this house again.

Manager's Response

It is unfortunate that sometimes, things just go wrong with a house! We try our best to fix it, whatever it is, asap. What I want to say though, is that it really helps when a guest realizes as you do, that we are doing our best! Thanks so much for your understanding <3 and we're glad we could get the hot tub resolved quickly. I hope your vacation next year is without any issues. I think your family is due!! ;-)

This house was absolutely beautiful, and offers privacy, as it isn't close to any other houses. There is one house in front of the Screamin' Mimi, but it isn't very close. I love the location of this house- the beach is wide and spacious. One of my favorite things to do was lay in the hammock, reading a book, and watching the wild horses graze in the yard. The pool and hot tub were very nice. The pool table was fun, and we played for hours. The kitchen has everything you will need to prepare meals, along with a grill outside. There are lots of books and movies for rainy days. They provide many beach chairs which makes packing so much easier! The house is spacious, clean, and beautiful. Most importantly, the beds are very comfortable for a good night's rest. The view from most of the bedrooms is a gorgeous view of the ocean. We had a wonderful trip, and will definitely be back next year!

The house was lovely, kitchen very well equipped. The bedrooms were spacious, only complaint about one bedroom was that the fan made a racket noise but I should have called and had it adjusted, also bunk bedroom needs a fan of some sort.
We were very close to the beach easy to walk to but nice to be able to drive your truck and park there. The wild horses were so fascinating, almost daily they were in the yard munching away.
Managing the sand coming on and off the island was something to get used to.

Manager's Response

LOL... if you figure out how to manage the sand, you could patent it and make a million!! That sand can be such a pain!

Sorry about the lack of a ceiling fan in the bunk room, we are not allowed to put a ceiling fan in there since it would be too close to the top bunk and could prove a hazard.

So glad you enjoyed your stay at Screamin' Mimi. Please come again.

We had a wonderful two weeks @ Screamin Mimi. We walked to the beach almost every day (short walk) and spent some afternoons in the pool. We found room for everyone in our 3 family party. Laura was responsive to every request or question we had during our time. We never used grocery delivery, but it is available along with pizza delivery from Pasquale's. There are plenty of amenities in the kitchen to cook for large groups.

Manager's Response

THANKS for your nice review. Screamin Mimi has a great location with such an EASY walk to the beach. I didn't realize the pizza delivery came this far 've been missing out!! LOL. I will call and check. Thank you.

Took a group of 4 adults and 4 kids for a first time stay on the 4x4 beach and really glad we selected Screamin' Mimi. Property managers were super friendly & helped us arrange grocery delivery in advance of check-in so that we arrived to a fully stocked kitchen. Families loved the pool, hot tub and easy walk to the ocean.

Manager's Response

We are so glad you enjoyed your time at Screamin MIimi. What a wonderful home it is and so close to the ocean. You chose the right house for your first time in Carova. We hope you are your family will return! ;-)

My sisters and I rented Screamin' Mimi for a family reunion/vacation and we had a fabulous week. The house was immaculate, very open and airy, decorated beautifully, more than enough room for the 7 of us and could have easily accommodated more. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool and the hot tub, and had the most amazing sunrise views from the top deck. Waking up to horses in the yard was such a cool experience! Short walk to the beach, the sound of the ocean every night, couldn't get any better! I highly recommend Screamin' Mimi and I can't wait to go back!

Manager's Response

We appreciate your comments and are glad you enjoyed your stay. The owners have worked hard over the past 12 years of renting Screamin' Mimi, to make it a home and not just a rental. They feel that the location and the wild life offer a unique experience in a beach house. Hopefully you'll come back and thanks again.
