Property description

Searching for the perfect beach vacation? Close your eyes and think of gentle breezes, flat open spaces, white grains of sand and sun dappled waves caressing the shore. Centuries ago, explorers came upon the shores of the Outer Banks of North Carolina and more recently people like you, looking for adventure have found their home by the sea.

Nestled between the wildlife preserve to the north, Penny Hill to the south, the Atlantic ocean to the east and the Currituck Sound to the west, Swan Beach offers many attractions and activities. ..so if you enjoy sun bathing, fishing in the surf or just reading under the bead-board ceilings of wrap-around porches...reminiscent of years gone by, you will find your needs fulfilled with an Outer Banks vacation rental. Be an explorer, be a part of the journey, be wild like the wild horses that you will find meandering amongst the rolling dunes and sun-kissed sea grass. ..they roam freely in the 4X4 area of the northern Outer Banks. These full blooded creatures are decedents of the Spanish Mustangs that sailed across the seas with the early settlers. They will share the beach with you, share the dunes with you and you might even find them sharing the shade between the pilings of your vacation home with you.

SWAN BEACH is home to the wild mustangs, a pure bread strain that has descended from the Spanish mustangs brought over by the early settlers. You'll see horses roaming the water's edge and throughout the drifting dunes. Homes are nestled amidst native vegetation that protect the sand dunes, which in turn protect the cottages. The frontal dune line is where the endangered loggerhead and green turtles lays their eggs for safe keeping. Among the dunes you will also find the nests of sea turns and their chicks. Barn swallows make their mud nests on the first level under the house, Carolina turtle doves nest in the rafters of the second and third decks along with the purple martins. Watch the surf for traveling dolphins which are a lot easier to spot than the magnificent whales. Around new years day we are often visited by a migrating harbor seal, resting on his way to warmer waters. We hope that you enjoy being surrounded by nature while at the same time having easy access to shopping, food shopping, gas stations, restaurants, movie theater and tourist attractions.. all located on the paved road just minutes away.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Deb and Steve Rothrock have been coming to the Outer Banks since 1979 and we have been in the home rental business since 1989. Our goal and commitment is for you to have the most positive vacation experience possible. Your time is valuable, so why not deal directly with the owners. We will answer your inquiries wholeheartedly and address your concerns promptly. Book with us and you will receive the personal attention you deserve. We live on the Outer Banks just after you pass over the Wright Memorial Bridge in Southern Shores. Our properties Swandipity and Waterscape are both located one hour north in Swan Beach in the Corolla 4X4...known by some as CAROVA 3.5 miles after the paved road ends. There are caretakers who live nearby to address your immediate vacation needs. We hope to see you soon.

Why the Owner Chose Carova Beach:
After owning two other homes in the 4WD area of Corolla, Deb designed and we built SWANDIPITY in 2005. It is our dream home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
What we love about SWANDIPITY is the 'WINDOWS OF THE WORLD' views from the 3rd floor, all the wrap-around decks and of course the wild horses.
