Adventure and Serenity

  • 5 of 5
It is a long,bumpy ride to arrive, but once you do ahhhhhhhhh. Peace, quiet, huge expanses of beach that feel almost private, horses at your doorstep, views galore, dolphins, pelicans, I could go on and on. My parents, three children, one old golden retriever and I stayed for two weeks, and we only went into town twice. The house and surrounding area had more than enough to entertain us. The kids loved the tide pools and the horses and great kite-flying. The dog loved the freedom. And we "older" folks just loved the relaxing and being away from it all. The property is very accurately listed, nicely clean and well-maintained, and the owners were very accomodating. I would definitely recommend this property as long as you are willing to make the long, sometimes harrowing beach drive - it is not for the faint of heart! Also, we recommend the lighthouse climb. Again, a bit terrifying, but quite the experience.

Great rental!

  • 5 of 5
Sorry, this review is two weeks overdue. My husband and I had a
super week at Breakin Wind with our two yellow labs. The house is very well
equipped and the furnishings are beautiful and very comfortable, exactly as
pictured . We so enjoyed the barbecue and jacuzzi on the outside
deck. The views from every window always brought sightings of the
wild horses and we even had them in our yard and under the carport.
We loved our daily walks in the peace and quiet of this special area.
Our dogs , Amber and Buddy LOVED running on the beach.

The house has a great movie collection which we enjoyed taking advantage
of. Although we never met Terra she was great about making sure
we had what we needed and made us feel she was available if needed.

We will be back with our kids next time to use those extra
bedrooms!

Wonderful vacation getaway!!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I just spent a week at Break'n Wind and we had wonderful time! The house was very clean and included many add'l amenities that other rental homes do not. The owners are also very conscientious of your needs during your stay and are easily accessible if needed although we didn't have any need to contact them during our stay. Beach driving was an exciting experience as well as seeing the wild horses including several visits at the house! There are plenty of shops, restaurants, sightseeing and activities nearby in Corolla and Duck. I would highly recommend Break'n Wind to families, couples, and anyone looking for a memorable vacation; and don't forget the dog, they are welcome too!

Hiding out in "Break'N Wind"

Hiding out in "Break'N Wind"
  • 5 of 5
What a pleasant surprise to spend a week at this home. All the comforts and conveniences of going to visit grandma: the GRILL, the jacuzzi, the outdoor shower, the rockers on the deck, wireless internet, free U.S. phone, the screened-in porch, the surf boards, satellite TV, DVD/VHS library and players, iPod/MP3 dock, the wonderful master bedroom, beds, beds, beds, and the horses underneath the porch!

Daily walks down the beach for miles and miles. Know the tides and put your tire pressure down below 20 and enjoy the 7 mile drive to the general store, ice cream shop and civilization. Very friendly community and helpful if you get stuck. Pizza can be delivered at mile marker 20 (lthough we enjoyed grilling every night instead). Propane service is one shed south and you are as isolated as you choose to be. Owners are quick to respond and the conditions were excellent. We will be back for another outing (the price was better than our neighbors were getting) and we thoroughly enjoyed the 7 days. You should too!

A Much Needed Breath of Fresh Air

  • 5 of 5
THE place to get away from one's normal routines and yet be close enough to modern conveniences’ if needed. We planned on visiting the OBX during Spring Break and after some research, decided to go the whole 9 yards and venture into Carova. Our only mishap was expecting Spring weather, but receiving the aftertaste of a cold, wet and windy winter. The ride along the beach "highway" in driving rain was an exciting experience. We were very happy to find we had chosen a cozy home that had plenty of space for two adults, two teenagers and two Schnauzers. What a pleasure to walk onto the deck, down the steps and onto beach sand. Despite the weather, we found every excuse to take the dogs out for yet another beach stroll. Break'n Wind was the PERFECT choice, spotless, welcoming and definitely on our list for 2012.

Map

Map

Car: necessary

The house is just a minute's walk from one of the Atlantic Coast's most pristine beaches, protected from over development by being sandwiched between four near-wilderness areas - the Currituck National Wildlife Refuge and North Carolina Estuarine Research Preserve to the south, and Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge and False Cape State Park to the north, just over the Virginia/North Carolina state line.

As would be expected from the area's name, a 4-wheel drive vehicle is a must for access to these beaches. The house is a 7 mile drive on the sand along the surf line from where North Carolina Route 12 ends just north of the Currituck Lighthouse.

From the end of Route 12, simply put your car into 4-wheel drive, cross through the cut in the dunes, and head north into the little remaining bit of paradise of this type left on the Atlantic Coast. This paradise hosts 60-70 Wild Horses that roam free in the area.
