Come stay and play on the beach... literally, the 4x4 beach! Ditch the pavement and drive onto the beach and find yourself at the Pelican Pad!

**You MUST have a 4WD vehicle to access our home. There are NO paved roads in Carova.**

Come land at the Pelican Pad! The Outer Banks, and the 4x4 beach in particular, are the perfect hidden gem that everyone falls in love with. We are located just below the North Carolina and Virginia border on Carova beach, between mile markers 21 and 22, roughly 9 miles past where the paved road ends.

The 'Pelican Pad 4x4' is a spacious six-bedroom home with plenty of room to relax and hang out with family and friends. We're a few minutes walk to the beach (150 yards) or, drive onto the beach, park, and unload for a day of sunshine and relaxation. Come back and take a dip in the pool or hot tub, swing on the hammocks, and just take in the views.

At check-in, you'll be welcomed with fresh linens and bathroom towels, hand towels, and washcloths. If you prefer to bring your own, just let us know when creating your reservation. We provide keyless entry access, making it convenient for you to come and go and not worry about keys.

Equipped with stainless appliances (including 2 dishwashers) and water filtration system, this modern, well-equipped kitchen has everything you need to prepare the perfect meal. If outdoor cooking is preferred, a gas grill is provided for your convenience. Come together for a meal at our 10 foot long dining table, or spread out and enjoy dining al fresco on the upper deck.

Want to listen to the ocean waves crash, watch the pelicans fly overhead, and see the beauty of the wild horses roaming around the property from our ocean-facing decks... just sit back in one of our hammocks or Adirondack chairs and enjoy.

Although secluded and remote, this house also offers you the ability to stay connected. We have Roku/smart TVs with YouTube TV subscription and wifi mesh throughout the home, giving you the best service and speed on the beach. We also have a variety of games, puzzles, and books to enjoy on your quiet nights in.

Traveling with little ones can be challenging, so we have tried to lighten your load. A pack & play and highchair are here for your convenience, so leave those behind and save some space in the car! We also have a beach closet with items you can use, such as chairs, toys, boogie boards, and more.

Parking permits are required if parking on the beach during the summer season. Two parking permits are included with your stay, but MUST be left at the premises at time of check out ($150 replacement fee per pass for those not left at checkout), as these are the owner's personal passes. If you need additional permits, please look online at https://currituckcountync.gov/beach-parking/ and https://currituckcountync.ticketspice.com/currituckbeachparking for purchasing.

Carova is known for its wide, clean beaches. You'll see wild horses roaming the beach and property, but it is important to keep your distance and NEVER feed or approach the horses. Just sit back and take in their beauty!

We're a short walk to the canal and public boat ramp. There, you can enjoy fishing, catching crabs, kayaking, paddle boarding, and more. Take a drive down the beach, and you'll find yourself back on pavement, where there's plenty to do... mini golf, shopping, golf courses, light-houses, ice cream parlors, and much more! We're happy to provide some recommendations of things to do and places to see.

Meet The Host

Sarah
Owner
Sarah
Hi, I'm Sarah!

I'm a wife, mom, nurse, and BEACH LOVER! The Outer Banks has stolen our hearts and we loved the idea of having a home that we can go to year after year, as our family grows, creating memories to last a lifetime. It only made sense to not only purchase a home on the 4x4 beach that we love, but to also share it with others, so they create those same magical beach memories.
