The home was wonderful, clean, spacious, and met all our needs. Great location to take advantage of the beach, ocean, horses, dolphins, and to recharge. Our families loved it!! The management company (Laura and her husband) communicated all information prior to arrival, during stay, and at departure very effectively. We would definitely stay at this location again!!

Manager's Response

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at Kaptain's Treasure. This home has been meticulously maintained by loving owners who pour heart and soul into the care of their home. And it shows! The beach is an easy walk, just 400 feet over the dune! The pool is a fantastic place to spend the afternoon if you get "beached out". And the level one game room is a great gathering space for a little pool tournament. Besides the pool, the level one fridge and full bath make it easy to spend the entire day on one floor! But you will want to go to level three for the lovely kitchen in which it is easy to make just any meal you can conjure. Kaptain's Treasure is just that, a real treasure.

We had a wonderful time. The house and location was great. Seen lots of horses. Kids loved the pool after being at the beach. Would highly recommend.

Manager's Response

THANKS so much, yes, the afternoon pool romp is the way to go. I know the beach should be enough, but man, it is nice to jump in the pool after a long day of sandy beach!

Hope you all will come again!

Very nice, large home. plenty of room for 2 families. Good sized pool, well stocked kitchen. Only drawback was bath towels were not provided. They were available for $150, but that seems like something that should be included.

Manager's Response

Thanks so much for your review. Kaptain's Treasure is a beautiful home and the owners keep it very well maintained. They work on it for at least a month every winter. Wish we could duplicate them and put them in OUR house for a month!! lol

I understand the towels question. The owners decided about ten years ago not to provide towels and to keep the rate a little lower because of it. I hope it won't deter you from a repeat visit. Carova Cottages and Kaptain's Treasure would love to have you return.

Despite the iffy weather, our stay in the OBX was wonderful. The area is more secluded than the southern part. Easy beach access, very near recycling plant and park. Wild Horses show up regularly. House is beautifully decorated and well kept. Property Manager Laura very attentive to your needs. Pool and hot tub maintained during the week. I highly recommend the rental of this property. Unfortunately due to COVID, we did not travel into town. On our way up stopped at Dockside Seafood- they have delicious crab legs and of course the Fudge Factory. We Recommend both.

Great vacation. Kaptain’s Treasure for the win.

We spent 2 weeks at KT and had a blast.
The beach.
The horses.
The house.
All worked out great for our family + our Carin Terrier.
Given Covid we felt safer than ever... few trips to the grocery store and the fish market at the Tim Buck II plaza was all we needed.

We ended up renting a gas grill for the 2 weeks...that would be the only thing this house missed.

Very clean and nicely decorated.

Thanks... we will be back!

Manager's Response

THANKS for your summation.. and it does kinda sum it up. Kaptain's Treasure has everything you need, and then some. Nice new living room furniture is comfortable and inviting. The sun room allows for more spaces to unwind and relax. Well appointed in all areas with exquisite taste shown by the owners. So the charcoal grill versus the gas grill. Funny enough.. that seems to be as divisive as chocolate, vanilla or strawberry!! Someone should do a poll! :-)

Hope you guys will come again!

Kaptain's Treasure - perfect location to the beach, top floor living with spectacular views from inside and full deck, additional full enclosed sun room for added living space, and was beautifully decorated too. Kitchen was fully equipped, game room was perfect with pool table, 2nd fridge and more. Bedrooms were spacious, bathrooms galore even an outside half bath, and an outside shower for when you are at the pool & hot tub. Horses were also around quite often. This was a great house in a perfect location!

Manager's Response

You have managed to sum it all up! Kaptain's Treasure is a GREAT house for a large group, and as you noted, it has plenty of space for everyone. We hope you will return... this was year two? How about a third? ;-)

Checked in with no issues and had no issues through our entire stay! Walked to the beach several times, enjoyed tithe pool and hot tub, played a lot of pool! Enjoying the large kitchen as well. We were lucky enough to see many horses, deer, rabbits and even coyotes! I can’t speak highly enough of Corova Cottages.

Manager's Response

THANK you so much for your nice review. Kaptain's Treasure does seem to have a lot of visiting wildlife. I hear about the horses visiting quite a bit! They must like the vegetation around that house. Hope you will come again. We would love to have you. !

Manager's Response

Thank you for your nice review. The owners of Kaptain's Treasure do a VERY GOOD job of keeping everything new and fresh.

The horses really are cool to watch. Particularly when they are snorting at each other and fussing over their mares.!!

Beautiful, spacious home with a great pool and great hot tub. Just steps away from a beautiful beach. Driving 8 miles on the beach to get there is not for the faint of heart but well worth it

Manager's Response

LOL! I think the beach drive is alternately scary, then adventure, then fun, then OLD HAT. Sounds like you got through the scary part and maybe even up to the adventure part. Come again and it will be OLD HAT! Kaptain's Treasure will be ready for you!

We had a wonderful family vacation. Plenty of room. Very clean. Convenient walk to ocean with ocean view. We loved fishing on the canal at Carova park! Caught many fish there. The kids loved the playground. We loved the kiddie pool and adult pool. Highly recommend would go back!

Manager's Response

THANKS for the nice review. We like the location at Kaptain's Treasure. It is so close to the ocean and the canal... walking distance to both... which one today? :-)

The house was perfect. Great location and we were fortunate to see horses every day - in our yard, the neighbors yards, on the beach. The kids loved it! Great views and comfortable layout perfect for a larger family. We never felt like we were on top of each other. We would absolutely recommend this property to friends.

The blinds in the sun room did not open and should be repaired or replaced to allow for the beautiful view. I would also recommend replacing some of the plastic chairs around the pool area as many were broken.

Manager's Response

The horses do seem to love that area! There must be some sweet grass or sea oats nearby!

Kaptain's Treasure does have a nice layout. The spaces flow easily and there are ENOUGH spaces that you can be all by yourself if you want.

The sunroom blinds are not broken. They use pulleys to lower and raise the rolled matchstick shade and folks seem to not know how to use them. Once they are rolled up again correctly they work smooth as silk. But if someone unrolls them by just taking the cords OFF THE ROLL, then it is a mess! SO sorry they were a frustration for you.

I'll be sure to check those pool area chairs. The sun makes them brittle.

WE sure do hope you will come again. Having a vacation in a "PERFECT HOUSE" seems like a good thing to repeat! ;-)


HOPE you will come again. The horses are

This was our first time to the outer banks and NOT our last! The house was absolutely perfect along with great views. The wild horses were in our yard/view every morning. Sunrise was perfect every morning. The pools and hot tub were amazing. The house was set up perfect.

We absolutely loved our family vacation at Kaptains Treasure. The home was laid out perfectly and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to bake and cook. Our favorite room was the sun room where you could watch the sun rise and set from the same seat. Horses everywhere. And had a fun time crabbing and fishing and visited the fire station for an ice cream treat. Location is great with beautiful views from the porch. Laura and David were responsive from reservation to checkout. Highly recommend Kaptains Treaure and Carova Cottages.

Manager's Response

THANKS Christa. Kaptain's Treasure is so nicely outfitted and the updates are luxurious! The owners have done a beautiful job making it PERFECT for your vacation. I hope you will come and stay again. ANNUAL reunion at Kaptain's Treasure? ;-)

The overall experience was positive. The location is nice, the views are great and the property management people were great. The only complaint from everyone who stayed in the house with us was the beds are terrible. Extremely uncomfortable beds and the worst sleep I've ever had in a vacation. The condition of the house was ok, not dirty but not immaculate. There were beer cans in the sink in the pool area when we arrived and the pool hadn't been cleaned. There were leaves floating and sand in the bottom but I guess that can be expected for the location. The interior of the house was decent. Some paint chipping off the ceiling in the basement, found food crumbs under the furniture in the living room so I would suggest the cleaners check under there when cleaning. The WiFi is spotty and weak . Overall I give it a 7/10.

Manager's Response

Thank you for letting us know about the difficulties you encountered during your stay. Your assessment helps us improve our service. You can be sure we will have a chat with the pool operator about the conditions you found there, but you are right about the sand. It is VERY hard to keep sand out of the pool! We will have to speak to housekeeping about moving the furniture to vacuum. They have quite a bit to do on Saturdays, but we strive for the cleanest possible conditions. This is the first complaint we have had about the beds, so we'll be sure to investigate. The wifi service was upgraded to 10MPS just recently so I think you will see an improvement there. Thank you for your critique. We aim for perfection.

Location was great. House was very dirty when we arrived. House is in milde disrepair and does need some care. Sliding glass door was not shutting and weather stripping was coming off. Some window screens were broken. Pool was not vacuumed and had a lot of sand in it. Pool deck area was covered with cigarette butts. Chairs were broken around the pool deck.

Manager's Response

So sorry you were disappointed by the cleanliness of this home when you arrived. If I remember correctly, your party arrived at the house before check in time. That makes our housekeepers rush through their job. Waiting in the pool area takes the pool operator out of his or her comfort zone and makes it difficult for them to do their job. Next time, it would be appreciated if you would wait until check in time to arrive. Everyone is happier then!


The owners of this home are VERY conscientious about keeping it up. The maintenance issues you mention are all minor repairs that happen regularly and constantly. This environment is hard on houses and we make sure to take care of the important issues as they arise.


I apologize for the conditions you found that were unacceptable to you. I hold a high standard for our cleaners, and they do an excellent job. Please make sure to let us know if you feel otherwise.


Thank you for your input.

We had a great time at Kaptain's Treasure. Everything was perfect- house had a great layout that accommodated our group, clean, and ready to use upon arrival. We had one small issue during our stay which was immediately handled by the property management company. We would highly recommend Carova Cottage's- Kaptain's Treasure for your OBX stay.

Manager's Response

What a nice review! Thank you for your help with the electronics after that storm. Funny that we ended up purchasing the same speaker as you have at home. It made setup a breeze! ;-)

This was our fourth year at Kaptain's Treasure and our best. We enjoyed 3 days of dry roads to the house and then the rain came. 15+ inches of rain water to go through to get in and out made it an adventure. House was clean and ready to go when we arrived. Can't say enough about the new rental company. They went above and beyond getting a forgotten stuffed animal home to us.

Can't say enough about the new rental company. They went above and beyond getting a forgotten stuffed animal home to us.

I went with my husband and 2 boys, 7&9. The house was perfect! So clean and well stocked with all the essentials.

This was a very nice rental house.Lots of indoor space and outside decking although a little disappointed with outdoor seating(5 plastic
aidorandak type chairs of which 2 were cracked on top deck and no seating on mid-level deck).The location was fantastic with wonderful ocean views and plenty of horses to watch daily.The pool was huge and used daily as we happened to be there when heat index advisory was up to 110 degrees- A short walk over the dunes and when driving your vehicle the dune road was right there. The property was clean and the management company- especially Laura was outstanding.

Best vacation ever!!!!!

Our entire party had a wonderful time and enjoyed Kaptain's Treasure very much. The property management staff went out of their way to ensure an enjoyable stay as Laura and David were both wonderful. We observed at least two dozen wild horses from the house daily. The house is setup very well, was very clean and close proximity to the beach with a fairly short walk. Only problem we had was the "Park Style" grill outside. It wouldn't light due to a breeze and the front of the grill being completely open. A propane grill or enclosed grill would've been preferred.

A valuable tip for driving in loose sand: if your 4-wheel drive has traction control, "disable it". When one wheel slips, your vehicle brakes itself until all wheels are at the same speed. Driving my 4-wheel drive on the beach was what I looked forward to the most and enjoyed it very much. Unfortunately I realized the traction control aspect on our last day.

A great getaway

We had a great time at this rental. The rental location was amazing and the wild horses were everywhere! My children loved the beach, horses, pools amd hot tub. The rental house was very clean and cozy. The house is located close enough to restraunts and shops in town if you want to go out or you can cook, stay in and watch the ocean from the decks. I would recommend the rental for anyone who wants to get away and spend time with family. We hope to return soon!
