Wild Horses in the 4 Wheel Drive area: Most days horses are visible on the beach and in the yards of cottages. The Wild Horse Association maintains about 50 horses that roam freely and feed on the vegetation. The Corolla Wild Horses are believed to have roamed the Ouer Banks for more than 4 centuries. These amazing animals are descendants of Spanish Mustangs. There are several tour companies that will take you to see the horses in the 4 WD area. But if you stay in a cottage in this area you may wake up to find horses with their foals in the yard!
I am a Virginia Contractor with home building experience and my wife and I love the building and decorating process. We built the house with investment in mind and retirement income for the future. Although, it was to be a business it quickly became a personal adventure. We hope you will find it to be comfortable and enjoyable for your family vacation
We loved the natural beauty of the area, driving on the beach, ocean and sound views, the undeveloped land, privacy,but all the luxuries ( phone, cable, internet) are available!
The view from any window in the house is enjoyable, even on a rainy day you can enjoy the views of the oceans from the top and middle decks!
