Book May 5th or June 2nd and get FREE POOL HEAT!! Extraordinary experiences await your arrival at Sandy Paws, a tranquil, pet-friendly oceanfront retreat with heatable pool, elevator and everything you could possibly need for the ultimate vacation. This home was lovingly designed for your family AND your beloved dog to enjoy fun-filled gatherings on wild and wonderful Carova Beach.

Take in the panoramic views and sea air while watching the famous wild horses grazing peacefully on your dune. Delight in a lingering ocean sunrise, enjoy a seaside picnic with the kids and beloved dog, steal away for a refreshing afternoon dip in the private pool (heated for a fee), sunbathe in a poolside lounge chair with your favorite book, marvel at the sunsets over the sound from your front porch and then be dazzled by the starriest night sky from the serenity of your private spa with LED lighting. At 4,023 square feet, Sandy Paws welcomes your family to its casually gracious spaces as well as generously sized bedrooms with private bathrooms for each.

Bring your groceries and never leave! Three refrigerator/freezers and a chest freezer in the shed mean you don’t have to go back to town to replenish your supplies!! Grill on the propane or charcoal grill while enjoying happy hour at the picnic table and watching the kids in the pool. With its double refrigerator/freezers, double cooktops and double dishwashers, the spacious indoor kitchen accommodates many chefs – with ample room for all.

Use the high-speed internet service to stream on your private device or the large screens in the living areas. A vibrant, surf-themed recreation room offers lounge furniture, a dart set, retro-style refrigerator/freezer and pool table as well as a large screen television (Dish TV cable). When the day is done, restore your body and mind through revitalizing slumber in one of Sandy Paws’ spacious, themed bedrooms.

Sandy Paws is a great property. Kitchen has every single thing you can imagine and settings for 20+ people. My bartender daughter was especially impressed with the completely stocks barware to include all the glassware and gadgets. Elevator was a huge plus for my Mom who had knee surgery in the Spring. Loved having the little table on the same floor as the great room and kitchen for games and puzzles. Even though the tropical storm came to visit, we had plenty to do inside with the game room and tv's o'plenty. House is staged with beautiful artwork and is very updated and well kept. Pool and horrible are top notch. My only suggestion would be to include more beach chairs to replace some of the Sandy Paws camping chairs. They are cute with the personalized logo on the back but not practical for our older family members. As usual, Laura is a dream and is available and responsive to answer questions and assist with requests. Best family vacation ever!

Manager's Response

Wow, such a great review. Sandy Paws is a joy for most chefs as evidenced by all the "kitchen wows" we get!! ;-) The elevator is also useful for us lazy folks who don't want to carry 25 bags of groceries up two flights of stairs ;-)

I want to put a spin on the storm. I LOVE A GOOD STORM! When else can you sit and watch waves roll in from 500 yards out... white water for as far as the eye can see? What beauty! And it was short lived enough that you got your sun back before you departed. I think that is the best of both worlds.

I'll let the owners know about your beach chairs concern. I know it gets harder every day to get out of a low chair. I end up rolling out. Damnit. lol

Wonderful stay

We loved Sandy Paws, quick, walk over the dunes to the beach, kitchen was well stocked with all the utensils we needed, and beds were comfortable.
We are an older couple, and don’t have a lot of streaming apps on our phones, and the owner provided ESPN for us to watch the Little League World Series!! Much appreciated!!

Manager's Response

That was a first for us... Little League World Series please!! LOL So glad it worked out. I hope you all will come again. That would make it three years with Carova Cottages!! We'd love to see you again!

I’ve stayed in many rentals including in the Outer Banks. Sandy Paws is the best we’ve stayed at - well appointed, clean and just nice and comfortable all around. Location may be a bit far from Corolla if you like heading into town a lot. But if you want a relaxing time on the beach without a ton of people around, Sandy Paws is a truly lovely place to be. The kitchen is organized and had lots of things most rentals do not. The bed rooms are comfortable. We’ll loved the place. We loved our stay!

Manager's Response

Thank you so much for your great review. Everyone seems to feel the same way about the kitchen at Sandy Paws! Make your own meals in this fantastic kitchen with enough refrigerators to keep seven days of food on hand. Add the two dishwashers for clean up and all you have to do is work up your appetite while sitting poolside! We're so glad you loved your stay in this comfortable home. Please come again!!

We could not have been more pleased with our week at Sandy Paws. Beautifully decorated home with a wonderful location and fully stocked with everything we needed. It was the perfect size for our family, and the memories created there will last a lifetime! Great dealing with Laura at Carova Cottages. We loved everything about this house and hope to be back again!

Manager's Response

We're so glad your family is returning for more "A++" vacation. Truly a testament to the wonderful family time you can get at Sandy Paws!! See you next year!!

We have been going to carova for 15 years. This was our first year at paws. The first thing we lived was how clean they keep it. It was great to have everything there in the house. We loved the second couch on the middle floor. There was so much space for all of us.

Manager's Response

You are so right. There are living areas on every floor. It makes it easy to have a quiet conversation with a small group. But the house can certainly handle a big family.

We're so glad you found it clean and complete!! Thanks so much for your review!

Our vacation to Sandy Paws was simply, perfect! The home, location, and amenities created a relaxing getaway from life! This was our first vacation to the Outer Banks and the 4x4 beach location is going to be hard to top! We were away from crowds and most days, had the beach to mostly to ourselves! There are so many positives this house has to offer: elevator, huge open upper floor, pool, hot tub, drive your belongings to the beach, beautiful views, and many more. But really, the best part was the daily visits from the many horses that roam freely. Most times, they were between the houses, on the dunes, or in our driveway! This vacation was definitely one of the best!

Manager's Response

NICE!! Sandy Paws is a relaxing spot in a relaxing spot! What more could you ask for? LOL.

The horses love those dunes, and isn't it picturesque to see them grazing? I bet you got some pretty fantastic pictures.

So glad you had such a great week. Please consider a return visit. We'd love to have you!

Highly Recommend Sandy Paws!

Our family (6 adults & 5 children) all highly recommend Sandy Paws!
We loved all the space, beachy decor, boardwalk to the beach, wonderful views of the dunes, ocean, sunrises & wild horses! We saw wild horses everyday! One wild horse even pooped on the boardwalk that leads to the beach! How’s that for wild horse beach charm?! Funny!
The kitchen is perfect for 3 families. It has all the equipment you could want and then some! Three refrigerators, a freezer, 2 dishwashers, 2 stove tops, many quality kitchen appliances, a crab pot, and every imaginable kitchen utensil! Thanks, Sandy Paws owners!
The elevator was a life saver in getting all our supplies upstairs. It has safety features which we appreciated since our group included 5 children, ages 5-8.
The fenced in pool (we paid the extra to have it heated) was great! The outside pool seating & chairs on all the decks were plentiful & perfect.
Laura James, Carova Cottages, answered our many questions promptly. We appreciated her help!

Manager's Response

What a wonderful recap of what sounds like a wonderful vacation! We're so glad you had so much fun. Sounds like the horses provided plenty of entertainment!! They are so funny sometimes.

Sandy Paws really does have everything you need for a large family to just relax and enjoy each other. Meals don't prepare themselves but at least the cooking is easy in the well thought out kitchen.

I hope you will bring your family back to Sandy Paws, though your trip to Alaska sounds pretty enticing too! Can I come along?.. what's one more? ;-)

Thanks Kathie!


After this review went public, the owner wrote to me and I am copying her words here:

"We work hard to make sure that the kitchen has everything anyone would need. Just stayed in a rental cabin in TN with our friends and their teens. Couldn’t find a single platter to present a family meal. It lacked a lot of things that cooks need. I was missing the kitchen at Sandy Paws!!! "
