4WD vehicle highly recommended. You will be driving on the beach for 8 miles to reach the house. Please lower your tire pressure to around 18-20 psi. Nearest grocery store in 14 miles away. Depending on how crowded the beaches are, it will take you 35-45 minutes to get there.

Hi everyone, my name is Julie and I love Carova! I discovered the area for the first time in 2009 and the rest is history! We visited and rented many places before deciding to buy. I believe it is a truly unique and wonderful place. I hope you will enjoy yourselves there, as much as my family and I have.

This guide lists everything you need to know, to make an informed decision about where to spend your

Policies and Rules

Check In 4PM - 4PM
Check Out10AM

If at all possible I will allow for check in earlier than 4pm. It all depends on if the cleaner is done with the house by then or not.

Minimum age limit for renters: 25
Someone in your party must be over 25 to sign the lease, and they must be present at all times during the vacation.
House Rules
All guests are required to review all house rules before booking. Booking a reservation indicates that all guests in your party acknowledge that they have read the rules and will abide by them.
- Do not exceed the occupancy limit of 9 persons. If you do, you will be liable for damages done to our well and septic, and any other damage that occurs from over use by too many people.
- We rent to family groups only. At least one person must be 25 years old or more and must be present during the entire stay at the house.
- Please do not set the air conditioning to less than 72 in either zone. We have had the unit freeze up in those situations.
- Please do not move furniture.
- Private well: do not leave water running anywhere unattended. If there is damage to our water equipment, you are liable for any repairs.
-If you will be bringing 1-3 housebroken, well behaved dogs, you must indicate that on your inquiry. The quote will then include an extra amount of $150 per stay. Pet fee is one flat fee, not per dog. If you dog causes any damage that exceeds the pet fee, we will ask for that to be withheld from your security deposit.
- Please treat the house as you would your own. We are not in any major rental company program. Our housekeeper reports to us immediately after you check out, as to the status of the house. We expect her to have to clean the house, but not spend 6 hours cleaning frantically trying to get the house in shape for the next guests.
- Please no diving into the pool. Please do not allow children to use the hot tub without parental supervision.
- We assume no liability for kayak use. Please do not drag kayak through the sand.

When you book, you are agreeing to our lease that is attached. Please review it before booking.
