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.

                          Location

                          Car: Necessary

                          Our cottage is located 3.5 miles up the beach from the end of the paved road (Rt 12). It is accessible by 4 wheel drive vehicles only as there are not any paved roads. The sand is your highway!

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About the owner: 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.

                          Why the Owner Chose Carova Beach:
                          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!

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          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!!
