John   ·  Stayed June 2022

"Loved the location and all the homes amenities. Theater room was amazing for movies and games. Only thing negative that wasn't an issue for our group was one of the washers had no power but the other worked fine so no big deal. Always a great experience renting thru Twiddy love the OBX!"

Jennifer   ·  Stayed May 2022

"Home has a good layout. Loved the home theater! Would suggest a home book to explain how the very fancy Italian oven works and to use the fire pit. Some kind of seating in the pool table area would be nice. Overall a good home, and in an area the horses loved. Wi-Fi in the theater room was spotty at times, maybe a Wi-Fi extender to that room would help."

Megan   ·  Stayed April 2022

"The space was amazing! Loved the theater room for chilly movie nights! So many horses to watch from the porch. Can't wait to come back!"

"Love Twiddy!!!"

Molly   ·  Stayed September 2021

"My family and I have been vacationing in Carova for 10 + years and I have to say this was one of the best houses we stayed in. The pool area was to notch, ocean views from 2nd floor bedrooms and third floor deck. Kitchen had everything and anything you need to cook for 10 plus. The children loved the theater, parents enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit at night. It really doesn't get much better for a semi oceanfront house."

Thank you so much Molly for the kind words! Have a wonderful rest of your Fall and hopefully we see you soon!!

"Beautiful home….couple little issues and one of the washers never worked but great place for multiple families and close to beach so super fun"

Hi Matthew thanks for taking the time to leave a review. I have let our maintenance crew know about the washer. Have a great rest of the summer!
Darla   ·  Stayed June 2021

"This was a beautiful and spacious home closely located to the ocean and tucked away on the 4x4 beach with ample opportunities to see the wild horses, gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, and a pool and hot tub for our private use. It was the PERFECT setting for our daughter and future son-in-law to become engaged. The beach is breathtakingly captivating with ample shells and interesting marine life. The dolphins visited daily. There were some maintenance issues that definitely need attended to… the toilet seats were either detached or missing a second pin in at least four of the bathrooms and there were some cosmetic damages from wear and tear to items in the theater room and billiard room. These can easily be remedied by a thorough maintenance check between guest check-outs and new arrivals. Twiddy did call at the end of our stay to survey us for any concerns."

Hi Darla. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a great review. This is the first I am hearing about the issues you listed. I will have twiddy fix these ASAP. Have a wonderful rest of your summer!

"This home was perfect for our large family vacation! The owner has put so much thought into making this home comfortable for a large number of people. There are TWO washer and dryers! And TWO dishwashers!!! The Sea Student is a new build and has beautiful decor. The evenings were spent with adults enjoying each other and kids in the theater room watching movies. At one point the owner reached out through Twiddy to check in on us. I realized that between the thoughtfulness of the owner, the professionalism/kindness of the Twiddy agent and the the gorgeous, well laid out home I want this to be our annual vacation home! Thank you Laura at Twiddy and owner of Sea Student!!"

Cara thank you so much for taking the time to write such a wonderful review of our home! I was so glad that you all enjoyed your week! We look forward to hosting your group again.

"Nice house in great location."

Hi William thank you so much for taking the time to review our home!
Scotty   ·  Stayed September 2020

"Overall it was a nice rental. A few things that we weren't keen on was the water quality. It was sulfuric even though it has a treatment system. Some of the rooms had almost no closet space to hang things in while other rooms had an abundance of it. Twiddy was quick to have someone come and vacuum out the pool when a wind storm came through and had the pool all sandy."

Hi Scotty Thank you so much for taking the time to leave the review! While the 4X4 has many amazing things about it, the water consistency is not one of them...well and wifi :-). That being said we are having our water system evaluated to further reduce any impurities going forward as well as the occasional sulfuric smell. We value our guests opinions and will do everything in our power to resolve any issues. The 1st year of any house comes with adjustments, we will have it down for next season

"Nice new place and great appointments throughout. Kids basement level and triple/quad bunks are a great new feature that everyone loved."
