Welcome to 'Lightly Salted', one of Swan Beach's finest cottages perched against oceanfront dunes of the wild and beautiful Outer Banks of North Carolina. Located only three miles from the hard surface roads of Corolla, in Currituck County....this vacation home is perfectly situated, enjoying virtually unobstructed views of blue-green waters, bubbling white surf and wide, sandy, wheat-toned beaches as far as the eye can see. The enchantment begins almost as soon as your 4x4 vehicle slips from the pavement to the sand, only a few feet from the roar of the surf. Travel 3 short miles and turn in towards the dunes to find your home away from home, with more amenities and luxuries than you thought possible.
New updates include leather sofa, loveseat, chair and ottoman, and new end tables, coffee tables and sofa tables for the living room. The third floor master is now a King Sleep Number ® bed, with new dressers, side tables and chest of drawers. New wood floors have been installed in the third floor living space and tile floors have been installed in the kitchen and 5 of the 6 bathrooms.
The state of the art electronics systems include a 55 inch Sony LED HDTV in the living room and 32 inch Samsung HDTV's in every bedroom, all connected to every channel offered by Directv, the 'Ultimate Package'. Never miss a game with the NFL package, offering every game, every Sunday. The Panasonic Surround Sound system rounds out the theater experience. Accounts with Pandora and Netflix offer unlimited movie and music streaming options via the Blu-ray player. Music is also available while partying in the huge private pool and picnic area with padded lounge chairs, tables and market umbrellas, a large hot tub and a gas grill. The pool stereo system, located just inside the ground floor entry, is also a docking station for your iPad, iPod and iPhone. Also located on the ground floor are a half bath and a mini refrigerator, making poolside entertaining a breeze. Take a break from the party and walk the 50 feet across the dune to the ocean. You can’t get any closer to the ocean on this stretch of beach than from this house. Entertaining inside will be even easier in the extremely well equipped kitchen with all new major appliances in 2013. New cookware, utensils and small appliances have been added for the gourmet in your group. If you’ve wanted to try out one of those new k-cup coffeemakers, bring the k-cup coffee and use ours. A “Mr Coffee” is still available though as well as a thermal coffee pot and a coffee grinder. Take that drink out on the screened porch just off the kitchen and watch the waves, or play a game at the outside dining table.
Our home boasts Sleep Number ® beds with dual comfort controls and 400 thread count linens along with a quality assortment of pillows for your sleeping pleasure. There is a king Sleep Number ® in the third floor master, queens for three more bedrooms and a kid's room with bunk set and pull out futon. Fall asleep to your private music selection with the iPad, iPod, iPhone docking station stereos located in every bedroom. Be sure to bring your X-Box 360 games or play some of ours on the game console located in the bunk/futon room.
Spend a luxurious week, enjoying the beach, swimming in the ocean, soaking up the sun, watching the horses and other wildlife, and relaxing to the sound of the pounding surf from the well appointed accommodations of 'Lightly Salted'.
