Accessible by 4x4 only. Bring the entire family for a memorable oceanfront vacation at The Big Chill! Constructed in 2019, this 12-bedroom home provides all the space and amenities you desire for your large group with endless ocean views. Approximately 8 miles up the 4-wheel drive beach, the home is located three blocks from the Carova Beach Park and Boat ramp offering opportunities to experience the majestic wildlife native to this unique area.


Step out onto your private walkway to access the beach for a stroll along the shore. Lounge in your very own outdoor oasis which includes a private 16x36 heated pool (seasonal) with poolside cabana, a tiki bar deck, hot tub, outdoor showers and fish cleaning table for your Catch of the Day! Feel the salty ocean breeze while enjoying the view and a good book or beverage on the home’s expansive decks, dune deck and or patio.


The home features an outside ramp with access to the ground floor and the elevator which effortlessly carries luggage, groceries, and guests to and from all floors. Speaking of groceries, be sure to stock up the kitchen! The chef of the family will rave over the well-equipped cooking quarters complete with two dishwashers, a six-burner gas cooktop, a pot filler, and two refrigerators. A large Island with seating, a breakfast nook, and a dining room with wet bar provide plenty of space and seating for everyone to enjoy meals as a group. After dinner, relax together in the spacious, open great room. Of the 12 bedrooms, 10 are masters with attached custom baths, providing all the peace and privacy you need for a multi-family vacation.


If you’re in the mood for some competitive fun and games, move downstairs to the professional size pool and shuffle board tables in the recreation room. The convenient rec room wet bar including a full size ice maker, is at your fingertips in case you need a refill or work up an appetite. Later, pop some popcorn and wind down from the evening’s activities with a movie in the theater room.


Whether you’re looking for a fun-filled week of family activities or simply to do as little as possible during your vacation you’ll find the best of both worlds at this thoughtfully planned and well-appointed vacation home. Recreation and relaxation await you at The Big Chill! Approximately 8.0 miles up the beach.

Kathy   ·  Stayed June 2022

"The Big Chill vacation home has become our favorite rental home in the Outer Banks. The owners have put a lot of thought into providing most everything a extra large family gathering would need. The proximity to the beach is great and the ocean views, sunrise and sunsets are spectacular!! We have been blessed with the beautiful wild horses, 9 of them one day on the lawn, right outside our doors. We watched them from our balconies while they grazed and ignored us. A big thank you to the owners for sharing their home."

Dear Ronald - thank you for this wonderful review. We definitely wanted to make it a special place for family to gather and enjoy each other and the beautiful views of Carova Beach. We truly hope that you and your family will come back to visit The Big Chill soon. Stay safe!
Kristie   ·  Stayed July 2021

"This is our second year back to The Big Chill. We love it. Spacious with many amenities and a well stocked kitchen. We always have plenty of space for our entire extended family. The outside area is amazing. Hopefully when we return the outside TV is working. Love the walkway directly to the beach in an area that is not too crowded. Cannot wait to be back again next summer!"

Response:
Hi Kristie! We are so glad to hear that you and your extended family enjoyed The Big Chill again. In the future, if you should ever have any issues at the house, please contact Twiddy immediately and they will be happy to assist you in any way. We are truly looking forward to seeing you again next year! Stay safe and we hope you enjoy the rest of your summer.

Jennifer   ·  Stayed May 2021

"This is a beautiful home with plenty of room for large groups. Extra refrigerators and an ice machine kept us from making multiple trips to the store. The game room and pool provide hours of entertainment for all. We loved staying at The Big Chill and will be back again!"

Response:
Hi Jen! Thank you so much for your kind review and so glad you all came back this year! We look forward to seeing you again at The Big Chill. Stay safe and have a great summer!
Christopher   ·  Stayed May 2021

"The Big Chill was a perfect fit for our vacation. We had a total of 17 Adults and 2 children and at no point during the entire week did we ever feel as though we were crowded. The home has enough room and activities for everyone to enjoy. It is perfectly situated in that you do not see any neighbors from the back of the house giving it an even more private/secluded feel. Truly a vacation that none of us will ever forget, this is a highly recommended property!!"

Response:
Hi Chris - So glad to hear you all enjoyed your stay at The Big Chill. Thank you for your wonderful review of our little sandcastle. Hope to see you and your family again soon. Have a wonderful summer!
