My husband and I love the 4 wheel area of the outer banks. The horses, the ocean and the wildlife is spectacular. This is our dream vacation home and hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Diane Hageman purchased this house in 2011

Our family has been coming here for years. When we retired, we found a place we loved and made it ours.

Every morning we have coffee on the decks and watch the horses go by or walk down to the ocean and watch the dolphins. It doesn't get much better than this.

FANTASTIC HOUSE, PEACEFUL SURROUNDINGS

  • 5 of 5
My family of 5 (ages 17-mature) just spent a wonderful week at this house! The owners are very easy to work with and answered all my questions. The website pictures are spot on and you won't have any unpleasant surprises. The house is clean and well maintained. Swan Beach is a beautiful unspoiled area with natural beauty everywhere. We awakened with the sun and slept soundly on a very comfortable bed after our nightly soak in the hot tub. No watches required.
During our stay we saw multiple horses, most spectacularly walking along the beach. The horses are so relaxing to watch and have a calming effect on the soul. My daughter remarked that they are like large therapy dogs quietly going about, soothing the hurried traveler. They make us just stop, watch, appreciate.
Of course we also took in some of the local sites. We visited the Wild Horse Museum which was small but so good,very informative. We climbed the Currituck Light house, toured the Whalehead Club, and enjoyed food and shopping in the old Corolla Village. Our most memorable meal was at Mike Dianna's Grill Room located in the TimBuck ll shopping center. My husband and I agreed that this was the best meal we have ever had! Expensive but worth it. Get there at opening or you may need a reservation.
A few informational items: You MUST have a 4x4 to get around in the sand. We reduced our tire pressure from 40 to 22-24 for sand driving. Use mile marker 16.5 as owners suggest even though house located at MM 17. Purchase the water offered, it just tastes better. We only needed 1 bottle. We rented sheets and towels from Oceans Atlantic which were very comfortable. The owners also offer a bedding package which I just forgot about or I may have used that.
Overall, we enjoyed a fun,relaxing vacation in a beautiful setting. Thank you Tom and Diane for sharing The Red Octopus with us!

FUN FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the "Red Octopus". My two little girls really loved seeing the horses everyday. We choose to stay here because the house had all the modern amenities, but is located on a quiet section of the beach. We plan to stay here again in the future.

BEAUTIFUL HOUSE. EXACTLY AS PICTURED.

  • 5 of 5
2 families with children ranging from 3 to 13 shared the house for a week. What a wonderful vacation. The home is exactly as pictured. The idyllic setting combines natural beauty with the comfort of a thoroughly modern home. It's a short walk to the beach, however, you'll love the convenience of being able to haul all of your stuff down in your vehicle and having it with you all day long. At the end of the day, we often enjoyed a home cooked meal out on the deck, taking in the scenery, cool breezes, and the occasional passing horse. (Actually saw many horses during the week, including several that stopped by the Red Octopus' yard).

The owners were very responsive and wonderful to work with. Can't say enough good things about the Red Octopus.

OUTTER BANKS TRIP MEMORIAL WEEK 2013

  • 5 of 5
My Family (Wife, myself, and 17 month old) stayed at this wonderful home in the 4x4 area of OBX. The home is just as described and is a wonderful, peaceful, and beautiful location. The drive in was fun as i have a jeep and love to go offroad. (Must drive along beach in sand to get to home) We had a great time on the beach (sand was like powder) and just walking around the area (shoes off) not a care in the world. The owner (Diane) had some pics up of wild horses in the area; I was skeptical at first but out of the 7 days we were there we found the horses 5 of them. One day the horses came to the home to visit us!!! Home is very well maintained and well stocked for your trip. (entertainment directv, multiple tvs, WII system, movies, music, kitchen stocked full of every utensil/pot/pan you would need for anything from pancakes to fondue set. Almost forgot.. did i mention hot tub on the deck overlooking the dunes/ ocean... I can not speak highly enough about this trip and the quality of this home!!! We look forward to another trip to this home in the future! Thanks again Diane for all of your help!

EASTER 2013

  • 5 of 5
The acccommodations were exactly as stated--couldn't have asked for more. It has all the comforts of home. The comfort level of the memory foam mattresses was definitely thumbs up. Cooking for the family was done with ease with every appliance you could possibly need. The wildlife was also a definite bonus. The owner was always accessible/responsive via phone and email. Can't wait to stay again. Outstanding.

There are wild horse tours you can take but, the ponies come right to the front door. Why pay to see them when they come to see you!
