About the property

Absolute Privacy, Spacious, Home, 5 BR, 3.5 Baths, Game Room,Pool Hottub

Privacy. Unique home lets you quickly access the beach (6-8 minute walk or just a short drive) and then come home to a peaceful,secluded house among the oak trees. Some have called it the 'forest at the beach' this is our home and we are looking for guests who want to come and enjoy the love we have for the area. We hope that you will love the peace and quite as we do. The property really is tucked away from the hustle and bustle--but close to the beach. We are close to the wildlife reserves, and we see Osprey and Swans flying overhead often. The nighttime is beautiful with stars above.

Our house is 5000 square feet under roof, so you will not step on top of each other. the fact that we are not oceanfront is a plus--no vehicles driving by your home night and day.

We offer amenities to keep you occupied in the event of rain. Check out our home page by going to hiddenoakestate to see additional photos.

We want to make your experience an excellent one so you will come back!

We have five good sized bedrooms-with the smallest for the youngsters. Each bedroom allows you to get away from the family for a while and comfortably read a book. Plenty of deck space too!

Keywords: Hidden Oak Estate offers a private setting, close to the beach, but miles away from the hustle and bustle. Enjoy total privacy as you sit among the live oaks and nature–watch the osprey in the sky and the wild horses roam the 10 acre estate. Peace, relaxation, and tranquility are essential elements of the Hidden Oak Estate experience. Outfitted with all the amenities, you can enjoy a week or a month, tucked away in this special place on the Outer Banks.

The property is in the four wheel drive area and is nestled among the nature reserves. See all types of wildlife from your deck--and watch the wild horses graze. From the top deck you can sip a cocktail watching the sun set over the sound, or coffee as the sun rises over the ocean. Our home page has many more photos to view. You can go to Hiddenoakestate -- all one word. We are in Carova North Carolina. Near Corolla. Also known as North Swan Beach.

Beautiful house and wonderful owners

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome house. We loved the view from the widows walk you could see both the sound and the ocean. Spent every afternoon up there enjoying the sunset. The house is beautiful and well maintained. Elizabeth and Bill were both very attentive. Loved the game room, had fun with the fooseball, pool table and ping pong tournaments. Loads of family fun! What a great family vacation. Can't wait until next year!!

Wonderful. Private. Beautiful. Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this house. The house was immaculate, kitchen stocked with everything we needed to cook and have a wonderful dining experience. TVs in every bedroom, pingpong, pool table, games,.... it all kept us happy and together for the entire time even when it rained. The house was so clean and the hosts answered any questions we had immediately! Best house on the beach without a doubt!

We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Hidden Oak, and wish we had booked again this year, as our week is already taken! I don't even think we will come to the area if we can not stay in this house. It made the vacation so special to be in complete privacy, which is not easy to get on the outer banks, and to have such a well appointed home to come back to. The house was clean, well furnished and felt like HOME not some big rental machine. You can tell the owners want to make your staff great, as they personally met us when we got to the house and showed us around. If something happened, boom they were right there to fix it (and all we had was breaker flip as we were running too many cooking gadgets on the back deck making a gourmet meal under the stars! I highly recommend you don't miss this one!

Had so much fun with family!

  • 5 of 5

our whole family loved the house and its location. We were able to really enjoy our family time together and to see the stars at night. Being back from the oceanfront was great as well. We enjoyed the folks on the beach during the day and then retreated to our private 10 acre estate. This is not something you can find often at the beach and we are very glad that there is a house like this. The house was very clean and very well stocked.

Peaceful, beautiful, like home

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at Hidden Oak. The house was perfectly clean, big enough for our family of 12 to relax and have privacy in the house and outside. The grounds are amazing! The kids were able to play pool, ping pong, foos ball, the ladies to enjoy wine in the wonderful kitchen, and the men watch different sports on the TVs throughout the house. The view from the top deck at sunset over the sound is unparalleled! We will be back for sure!
