About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Message me directly or call Sun Realty NC and ask to rent SWB-5 "An Ode to Joy" 1 800 332 0039. It rents Sunday to Sunday. The house is truly a nautical paradise from its decor to its natural surroundings. If you are a surfer, a fisherman, a beach comber, or if you just simply love the ocean, wild horses won't be able to drag you away from here. This 2002 property has both ocean and sound views with spectacular sunrises and sunsets. You'll have to have a 4WD vehicle to get here but it is well worth it! The house has an extensive movie collection as well as a wireless Internet connection. There are plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas and beach toys. The back deck backs up to a wild life refuge where the horses are frequent visitors and has an outdoor fire pit and benches. The summer skies are stocked with brilliant stars and moon phases .You'll be 3 miles off the pavement but there is a grocery store (and seafood market) about 3 miles once you're on the pavement along with lots of shopping, a ropes course, mini golf, etc. The kitchen is well equipped (including a free standing ice maker) with all you'll need to stay put during your relaxing week or two off.


Making it easier to get there
This Beach house is located on the 4 wheel drive area of Swan beach in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. It is 3 miles on the beach past Corolla and about 6 miles before you get to Corova. It is at the 16.5 mile marker and at the intersection of Ocean Pearl rd and Canary lane. The Google map does not show the location accurately... it has the location too far back from the ocean.Google GPS has it right. It is actually about 300 yds from the ocean but down there, everyone just parks their trucks, jeeps , or SUVs right on the ocean front which makes it easy for getting all of your 'toys' down to the beach! It is truly awesome for families taking chairs, boogie boards, rafts, surfboards, coolers, etc. to the beach each day.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2002

About: I grew up surfing in the Outer Banks in the Early 70's and it's been a long love affair with the place I never could get out of my head. I have been all over the world but nothing compares to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. ( James Taylor's song probably says it best) I hope that visitors to my beach house find that same joy.

Why Corolla, NC, USA:
I can't think of any place in the world more peaceful or beautiful. I don't know of any other place where wild mustangs are your neighbors. :)

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Peace and quiet, family time in a natural and beautiful environment. It has everything that people who love the water and nature would want. The waves and fishing, sun rises, and sun sets are magnificent! ( but still close enough to town to shop, go out to eat, or take the kids in to have a little fun ) The kitchen is stocked with everything for someone who loves to cook! The cross breezes through the house with the smell of the ocean are calming and wonderful.
