Come Play Hooky...

Transport back to childhood when the thrill of getting away from your responsibilities could be as simple as ‘playing hooky’. Feel your shoulders drop as soon as you leave the hard road to drive right next to the push and pull of the gorgeous, blue ocean.

Playing Hooky boasts all the amenities you can think of, for the relaxation and enjoyment of all ages. The game room, located on the entry level, and has a pool table, kitchenette, flat screen tv with receiver, blu-ray player and Bose speaker surround sound, pub table and chairs, full bath and a large, comfortable seating area for entertaining. Outside is the huge pool with picnic table and zero gravity chaise lounge chairs as well as a cabana bath and outside shower.

The laundry room and three bedrooms are on the next floor: one is a king master, another is a king with shared bath and the last is a double duo-bunk room. All bedrooms are equipped with every comfort as well as wall mounted Directvs. Step outside for the cool ocean breeze on the screened porch, which overlooks the pool and has a 6 person hot tub and dining table. Sip a frosty beverage while watching the spectacular evening sky, or watch the children swimming in the pool below. The hot tub's location in the screened porch means no annoyance from flying pests while you soak.

Unwind as you top the stairs of the upper level. The lovely leather furniture, half bath and comfortable spaces are outdone only by the stunning ocean views. The fourth bedroom, a queen master with huge bath is also located on this level. Just past the island with seating for three is the well-equipped kitchen, with everything you will need to create a delicious meal. Nice quality flatware and place settings will create a beautiful table for 12.

Through the dining area is the bright and inviting sun-room equipped with card table and upholstered chaise for your lounging pleasure. Step through the sun-room to the west onto a wonderful sun deck with views of the Currituck Sound. Step through the sun-room to the east for spectacular ocean views and decking with picnic table, outdoor seating and access to another level of decking above, the crow’s nest deck located on the roof. Take your favorite cool beverages to the crow’s nest and let all your cares blow away as you enjoy the spectacular sunsets from the built in seating. Look to the south for a view of the Currituck Lighthouse beacon and the Fourth of July fireworks at Heritage Park. Come and Play Hooky for a thoroughly relaxing retreat, and let this wonderful home free you from all of your cares.

About Owner/Manager David and Laura James

The owners of this property, Glenn and Angela James fell in love with the 4x4 beach after visiting David and Laura's home in North Swan Beach. The thrill of driving on the sand really suited their desire to shake it up a little! Their home in Swan Beach is a reflection of their desire to have a place to forget all of their cares and relax. They open it up to you in the hopes that you will find yourselves renewed by the simple act of visiting paradise.

What makes this house unique

This home allows a group of people to spread out a bit. Multiple living areas make it easy to separate the party into smaller more intimate groups. The game room can house the loud party, while the living room is hosting a small gathering, and at the same time an intimate group is playing a game in the sun-room. The grouping options are endless.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Playing Hooky is a great property. My family has stayed at that house every summer since it was built in 2003. It is in a great location - you will see the wild horses every morning and evening. The pool is huge compared to the pools at the surrounding homes and the jacuzzi is in the screened in porch which makes it great to use at all times of the day. You will likely need to drive your SUV to the beach though - it is a bit of a walk dragging beach gear. If this is your first time to the 4WD section - there are no "roads" - just paths made in the sand. You should take your tire pressure down to the suggested rate and try and stay close to the waters edge when driviing (be careful bc you will be driving through people on the beach - there is a speed limit of 15 mph). Also be careful of puddles - they can be much deeper than they appear. Try and drive around when possible. This house has provided a ton of great memories for my family. Enjoy your vacation.

Reviewer Comments:

This was my first trip to the 4wd beaches and I couldn't be happier with the treatment I received from David and Laura. The house was clean and exactly where and how it was described. Even with a couple of days of hard rain and wind Playing Hooky had everything in the home to make this an enjoyable trip despite the weather. The kitchen was great for someone who loves to cook and the view from the top deck was amazing. Horses, deer, and foxes in the yard almost daily.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was clean, except for the hot tub, which was full full of mildew. Our stay was good. But the owner told us we could park our non 4x4 car in a public lot. When we arrived, we saw signs saying no overnight parking. I spoke to the police who told us cars get vandalized there. So, we paid (not very much) to park in a lot, and when I told the owner we would appreciate being reimbursed, rather than just saying "no", she responded with hostility.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a great time in OBX. The house was nice but not as big as the pictures showed. Definitely would not have more than 10 people in the home. The pool and hot tub were perfect. The only minor negative was how far away we were from food store, shopping,restaurants etc. It took about 20 minutes to drive on beach to get to the paved road and then 10 mins from there so if you needed a quick trip to food store took a long time. But if you are looking for a house on the beach with beautiful views and seclusion this is your place. Overall we had a great time!!
