Non-smoking

Pet free home

Four-wheel drive vehicle required

Always arrive before dark because the beach is more difficult to navigate at night. Bring a tire-pressure gauge. We recommend lowering your tire pressure to 15-20 psi. Tires can be re-inflated at any of the area gas stations. Check area tide charts prior to arrival; low tide is ideal for beach driving. Follow all posted speed limits (35 mph or 15 mph when within 300 feet of pedestrians or wild horses). Drive on the hard-packed sand near the edge of the water or close to the dunes. Leave the middle of the beach available for parked vehicles. Drivers must be 16 years of age and possess a valid driver’s license. ATVs are not permitted. Also, Currituck County does not allow personal motorized watercraft on the ocean. Jet skis and personal motorboats are allowed on the Currituck Sound. The closest boat ramp is located at the Whalehead Club in Corolla. Due to shallow water and grass, this ramp is suitable for small craft only. For more information regarding Currituck County's rules and regulations, please contact the Currituck County Chamber of Commerce @ 1-800-CURRITUCK or visit Currituck Chamber website.

About Cathy Forgnone

We live in Western New York and have two married children and 3 grandchildren. We have been vacationing in the Outer Banks for about 30 years and spend as much time as possible at the beach enjoying the surf, sand and wild horses that roam the area.

Cathy Forgnone purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Cathy Forgnone chose Carova

One year while vacationing in Duck, we rented 4 wheelers and took them to Swan Beach. We fell in love with the remoteness of the 4x4 area and purchased our lot in 2000 never dreaming that we would ever build a house there. The family nicknamed the lot 'Cathy's Sandpile'. Cathy's Sandpile became Dream's End in 2005. We are living proof that dreams do come true!

What makes this cottage unique

Our cottage is located in Carova's unique 4x4 area where the wild horses roam. Carova is an eleven mile stretch of beach that begins at the northern terminus of NC Route 12 and extends to the North Carolina/Virginia state line. The name Carova is actually a contraction of Carolina and Virginia. Carova is sub-divided into beaches, one of which is Swan Beach where Dream's End is located. Our cottage is ideally situated 3.5 miles up the beach with spectacular, unobstructed oceanfront views. Every bedroom is a Master Suite with its own private bathroom and deck access. The views from this house are breathtaking! Every room has a view of the ocean. Take a short walk over the dune and you are at the beach or sit on the deck and watch the dolphins jumping out of the waves. You may even see a whale spouting a stream of water as he swims by. Thunderstorms are exceptional at the beach with lightning brightening up the dark night skies. On a clear night you can sit in the hot tub and gaze at endless stars because there is no light pollution to dull your view. If you are an early riser, sip your coffee while watching the sunrise from the front deck. In the evening enjoy the incredible sunsets from the back deck. The wild horses come by nearly every day to snack on the grasses growing around the house. There are times when you see them racing across the dunes in hot pursuit of each other. This area isn't for the faint of heart though. There aren't any paved roads or sidewalks in the 4x4 area called Carova. It is a wild and free area. The highway is the beach. Sand roads lead to the cottages. Your vacation here will be an experience like no other. Rejuvenate, relax and renew at Dream's End. Staying in the 4x4 area should be on everyone's Bucket List!!

Awesome Beach House!

  • 5 of 5
We had a family vacation with three generations all staying together at the house. We had everything we needed and the owner's were helpful every step of the way. They were always quick to respond before and during our vacation to any questions we had from parking for non-4WD family members to dining suggestions. The house had everything we could have needed from kitchen supplies to beach chairs and boogie boards. We only left the house one time during the week to go out and eat and restock groceries. We say the horses three days while we were there. Also saw dolphins. Very amazing and restful vacation for a change. Trying to figure out when we can all go together again!!

Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
This amazing home was well planned out to relax and let go of our ever day stress. If you want a vacation home to lounge or take a dip in a pool, sit in a hot tub, watch wild horses and deer walking right up to the house, sit on the top deck and look at amazing views, watch a sun rise or sunset or see the Dolphins swimming in the ocean, then this is the place! The owner's were very accommodating. We can't say enough great things about this house. Everything about it says "relaxing getaway"....from the magical location on the 4x4 beach; We will be back!

Owner's Response: According to this guest, the only reason he gave us 4 stars out of five is because he felt there was not enough information in our listing concerning beach driving. To remedy this concern, we have added additional information to our VRBO listing concerning beach driving.

Perfect Vacation House on the Beach

  • 5 of 5
My family had a wonderful vacation in this home. It was by far the cleanest we have ever rented in the area and most comfortable. The owners were super responsive and helpful throughout the renting process and during our actual vacation. Definitely recommend this house if you are looking for an adventure on the beach :)

What a wonderful home

  • 5 of 5
We had an incredible vacation!! The house was BEAUTIFUL, clean and just as the pictures show, no surprises, and the top deck with the tall captain chairs was without a doubt the best seat in the house!!!!!! My family loved it!!! The horses came right up to the fence. We saw them daily. I would highly recommend this home. Owners were wonderful to work with as well.
