QUAINT BEACH COTTAGE IN OBX - 4WD AREA

Currituck House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-14)

CURRENTLY OFFERING THE WEEK OF 6/22-6/29 for $1200!! EMAIL OWNER FOR DETAILS!

Come vacation with the wild horses in the remote, 4WD area north of Corolla! Play or relax on the beach by day and watch the beautiful starry sky on one of three decks by night. Read a good book in the shade of the outdoor gazebo...or watch a good movie...no matter what you choose to do, this is the place for true 'rest and relaxation!'

While the house is located in Swan Beach, a small neighborhood just five miles north of the Corolla lighthouse, you MUST have a 4WD vehicle to access it. The house is only about four miles from where the paved road ends and you drive along the beach. There are plenty of restaurants, shopping, and other activities in Corolla, should you want to venture back to the real world! You'll want to bring groceries with you, but they can be purchased in Corolla at the Food Lion or Harris Teeter.

While our cottage is located four rows off the beach, you can still hear the waves crashing at a distance. This house has an open floor plan with a rustic feel. It has updated appliances and a BONUS room downstairs that sleeps up to four people and has a full bath. There is a screen porch and two large decks that surround three of the four sides of the house. It's truly designed for outdoor living!

I grew up in Chesapeake, VA and lived in Va. Beach, VA most of my adult life until my husband and children moved to Harrisonburg, VA in 2011 for my husband to start an insurance office. I have 5 beautiful children. I enjoy sewing, playing the piano, gardening, working out. And I especially love the beach!

Kimberly Edwards purchased this house in 2005

This home was built in 1980. My grandmother and mother had it built in Whalehead, which is in Corolla, NC. Growing up, I enjoyed MANY vacations in this house and hold such special memories. My sister and I purchased a piece of property in the 4WD area as young adults, thinking we would build a home together one day and enjoy it every summer with our families. But when my grandmother and mother were ready to sell the house, the housing market was exploding and the lots that many older homes were on sold for BIG BUCKS. At that time, there was a 'trend' of uprooting some of these older homes and literally moving them to the 4WD area. So they offered to give us the home if we wanted to put it on our property. We were ecstatic!!! Now we still get to enjoy this wonderful beach home every year with our families. We hope you will enjoy it too!

PERFECT ESCAPE

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I booked our yearly vacation here and it turned out to be exactly what we wanted; beautiful outerbanks, quick and easy beach access, no crowds and to just get away from it all. Happy Yours Beach Cottage fit my 4 inlaws, us and our two dogs comfortably. The downstairs apartment area worked out great to give my family even more room than we expected with one couple staying down there and 4 adults upstairs. We woke up one morning to the wild horses grazing around our front and back yard area, it was absolutely amazing. The owners of the home were more than accomodating and quick to respond with any questions or concerns we may have had. We strongly reccomend Happy Yours if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing, get away from it all vacation!

GET AWAY FROM IT ALL, REALLY.

  • 5 of 5
The moment the tires hit the sand, the windows and heart rate go down immediately. Worries wash away with the sounds of the ocean. If an uber relaxing trip to the beach is what you are looking for than Happy Ours is the place. We are repeat customers, bringing sisters/aunts and friends with us each year. The cottage is quaint, and has all the creature comforts you need. The open kitchen/living area makes chatting with family and keeping an eye on the little ones a breeze. We dine mostly on the screened porch--it's got plenty of space for the family, the cooler and several chairs (provided.)

Most days, you've got the beach to yourself, though the jeep tours seem more frequent. Stuff the SUV with your tent shade, cooler, towels and sand toys and you are golden. With a little one, the trips to the beach get shorter, but nap times can be spent lounging on the deck on one of the awesome adirondack chairs and a non-work book. I actually get my best sun back there!

You are definitely close to nature, with wild horses and my favorite discovery-- a giant turtle! But, this also means you need to bring your bug band (awesome invention) for late night walks or jogs. You'll be a pro at trips to town in no time. Corrolla Village has a great BBQ place and the lighthouse is always a sweet place to visit. But, if you are like us, once you're there, you just want to turn it off.

The family is always helpful if you need anything, so don't hesitate to ask. Pack your sunscreen, favorite beach food (fajita makings and orange cupcakes for us) and ditch the flipflops at the door!

GRANDMA, KIDS AND GRANDKIDS LOVED THIS QUAINT BEACH HOME!

  • 5 of 5
The owners of this property are excellent to work with and very willing to help you if you have never visited the Outer Banks before...let alone this amazing 4 x 4 section on God's amazing handi-work. This is a place everyone should visit at least once. I could not believe how friendly the owner was at answering all our questions and recommending things to do. I HIGHLY recommend coming up from the north and taking the ferry ride...This was so much fun...the kids LOVED this. This house was pefect for my family of 5, my brother's family of 4 and our mother. The 2 youngest boys LOVED the loft. Our families really liked having our "own" space by utilizing the room on the bottom level. The almost wrap around porch allowed for much wildlife viewing, which included seeing the wild horses daily. They even came right up to the deck. We just laughed at those paying to see the horses...DON"T pay...they come to you. The furnishings were all in great shape and the home was well maintained. This house was just as promised. Eating out was a bit more than we had expected so we didn't do this often...we visited the local grocery often. We did rent a boat for the day...this was lots of fun. We also took a road trip to Kitty Hawk to see the Wright Brothers Memorial and then on to Rodanthe. While a long drive we really enjoyed this trek. Local supermarket prices seemed very fair. I highly recommend getting your groceries and staying put. Because it was our first trip to the OBX, we had to sight see some...next visit will be spent completely relaxing in the sand. We sure hope to come back soon.

DON'T PAY FOR A WILD HORSE JEEP TOUR....

Don't pay for a wild horse jeep tour....
  • 5 of 5
Don't pay for the wild horse jeep tour because 5 of the 7 days the horsed were in the yard!! Lots of deer at night.....we had a 15 million watt light to spot the nocturnal part of nature. Stars are magnificent! This property is away from the beach but half the fun is doing the "dune buggy" drive different ways to the beach every day! The house is very comfortable and even though they do not have cable/satellite there is a cabinet full of movies.....just bring your favorites. Internet is available, but slow.....works well for email. This property is a great value and we would recommend to others. Kimberly was very responsive to ALL questions and great to work with. The only problem we had was the coffee pot was broke.....a trip to the Harris Teeter fixed that (my daughter needed a new pot anyway) and Kimberly had the cleaning crew bring a new pot so you will not have that problem.....if you are a caffeine addict! This was a wonderful first of many trips to the Outer Banks and was great being away from the mass of people at the other beaches. Go and enjoy a great time!

FAMILY FROM OHIO.

  • 4 of 5
We had 8 people at the house for a week, and we had a great time. The location on the beach forced us to relax as a family and spend some quality time together. We enjoyed the wild horses in the area, and had them visit the house a few times - usually in the morning.
The house was pet friendly, and the neighbors were not around so we had a very quite area it was great place to see the stars at night when the lights were off.
We had 6 kids in our party from 13-19, and they all enjoyed the beach, and every trip away from the house was an adventure. Driving in the Sand took a bit to find the best paths, and how to drive in the sand, but by the end of the week it seemed pretty easy. The house was not fancy, but had everything you need to have a great vacation. Lower level room was a nice surprise - as it was very nice. Kids thought they had their own apartment away from us as it does not attach directly to the main level of the house.
Make sure you bring water to drink - water in house was OK for washing and dishes, but I would not want to drink a lot of it.
