Property description

Welcome to Break'n Wind, a cozy three bedroom beachhouse located in the 4-wheel drive area north of Corolla, North Carolina. SEE OUR PERSONAL WEBSITE LINK LISTED ABOVE THE MAP & OWNER'S PROFILE SECTION!!

The house is a 3rd row oceanside home located 500' from the beach in North Swan Beach. Unobstructed views of the ocean. It is light and airy and has a WELL-EQUIPPED kitchen. Enjoy a glass of wine or your meals on the attached screened porch. Two Master bedrooms with queens, one with a deck. The main level bedroom has two twin beds and shares a bath. The sofa bed is comfortable, unlike some of those backbreakers you may have tried, this one sleeps nicely.

We also have an outdoor shower and dressing area. There is a fish cleaning area as well for those who like to fish. The house has a wood burning fireplace and a hot tub for those cool nights. We provide satellite TV in every bedroom and has free WiFi, domestic long distance lots of other freebies. Break'n Wind is the perfect house for couples or families. We like dogs and kids and we hope they will like the Wild Horses of Corolla that wander under our deck and over our yard on a daily basis. Bring your camera!

The house is just a minute's walk from one of the Atlantic Coast's most pristine beaches, protected from over development by being sandwiched between four near-wilderness areas - the Currituck National Wildlife Refuge and North Carolina Estuarine Research Preserve to the south, and Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge and False Cape State Park to the north, just over the Virginia/North Carolina state line.

As would be expected from the area's name, a 4-wheel drive vehicle is a must for access to these beaches. The house is a 7 mile drive on the sand along the surf line from where North Carolina Route 12 ends just north of the Currituck Lighthouse.

From the end of Route 12, simply put your car into 4-wheel drive, cross through the cut in the dunes, and head north into the little remaining bit of paradise of this type left on the Atlantic Coast.

Part of 'paradise' is the existence on this beach of the only remaining herd of wild horses left on the Atlantic Coast that is free to roam in residential areas. The horses on Ocracoke are penned, while those on the rest of the Atlantic seaboard are kept in national parks, where you can visit, but not live.

So come on down, bring a good book (bring two good books), feel the beach breeze drifting through your hair, and enjoy the most peaceful vacation available this side of the grave.
