For early risers it’s just a SHORT walk to the beach. Watch the sun come up, hunt for shells or catch a fish! If your pleasure is walking along the ocean in the evening then the Ocean Sands PRIVATE beach can’t be beat. Plus this is a secluded neighborhood where you can enjoy a quiet walk in the evening. From Sleeping with the Fishes it's just a quick walk to a freshwater lake, which is home to turtles and fish ~ Great fun for kids!.

Athletes can jog around the lake, head for the community tennis courts just across the lake or play basketball right at Sleeping with the Fishes. The Reese-Jones designed championship golf course is nearby with the entrance to the Currituck Club less than a mile and a half away.

Head north to Corolla Village with its unique shops, climb the Currituck Lighthouse, drive on the beach in your 4X4, tour the Whalehead Club or browse in the Timbuck II Shopping Village. The Currituck Heritage Park has a public boat launch providing access to Currituck Sound for fun on the water and is home to the Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education and countless events and activities for families year round.

The Food Lion grocery store is located less than 1 mile north and the Harris Teeter Shopping Pavilion, located at the entrance to the Currituck Club, just to the south.

Want more opportunities to explore, play, shop and eat? Rustic Hatteras Island is forty-five minutes away and provides every water sport imaginable plus nature preserves and lighthouses. In addition, visit historic Manteo with its many shops and the nearby North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island. And do not forget the Wright Brothers National Memorial (site of the first manned flight) and Museum just a short drive south in Kitty Hawk!

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About: Our family has long wanted a safe, clean, well maintained OBX vacation property that was the 'right size', not too big and not too small. On finding this house we instantly fell in love. It is truly the OBX vacation property we had been looking for but never able to find... We enjoy the house many weeks throughout the year and operate under the principle that if it is not good enough for us, it is not good enough for our guests!

              Why Ocean Sands, Section M:
              The Outer Banks is the ultimate family beach vacation spot. It is safe, friendly and away from the crowds found in many other beach locations. It has everything from fishing to surfing to wild horses. Close to Baltimore, Washington DC and points north and south. It is what ocean towns used to be...

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Our property is centrally located in the Outer Banks in Corolla. Two blocks north is Tim Buck II which has great shopping and restaurants. Further north is the 4 wheel drive beach and wild horses. But lets face it... You came for the beach and ours is top notch. Private (access only by property owners and guests) it is just steps away from our home. Beautiful sand and surf, sun and fun!!!
