Non-smoking

Pet free home

Four-wheel drive vehicle required

Always arrive before dark because the beach is more difficult to navigate at night. We recommend lowering your tire pressure to 15-20 psi so bring a tire pressure gauge along. 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.

About Cathy Forgnone

We live in Western New York and have two married children and 4 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.

Cathy Forgnone purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Cathy Forgnone chose Northern Coast & Outer Banks

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!

What makes this cottage unique

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!!

Great Multi-Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Dreams End. Both the kids and adults enjoyed the pool, hot tub and wonderful views. The proximity to the beach was wonderful and the beach traffic was not too bad.

What we loved most were the little things. The fact that there were two large gas grills was key to our nightly dinner plans. The separation yet proximity of the main rooms was also great; we could have a delightful dinner on the back patio while being able to view the kids watching a Netflix movie in the living room. And the wild horses were amazing. They came around multiple mornings and one even greeted us as we packed up to leave. We would definitely go back.

Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about our week at Dream’s End. The house itself was in wonderful condition and very well set up for multiple families. The two living rooms allowed the adults to watch the hockey game in the evening while the kids could watch cartoons or go play in the game room which they LOVED having their own space. The views were amazing and I loved sitting on the deck drinking my morning coffee and listening to the waves. The view and proximity to the beach could not have been better. The kids went crab hunting at night and during the day it was so easy to set up at the beach, the house was very stocked with chairs/boogey boards anything you could need. Cathy & Mike were very easy to work with and provided us a lot of information on the area, as we were coming from across the country and were unfamiliar with the area. This is the perfect house for a wonderful family vacation! I do highly recommend 4 wheel drive - one of our all wheel vehicles got stuck coming over the dune.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your great review Jessica! We're so glad that you had a great week with your family, especially since you came across the country to get here. Also, it is great that you put to use both living rooms and the game room. When the whole extended family vacations together, lots of different "get away" places are appreciated. Regarding the 4WD versus AWD, we drive both on the beach. The most important thing is taking the air pressure down. Thanks again for choosing Dreams End and for being so great to work with!!

Absolute Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was fortunate to spend a week at Dreams End in May/June 2017. To say it was absolute paradise is an understatement. The house is just lovely...from the perfect beachfront location to all the amenities it has to offer. Cathy and Mike are a pleasure to rent from and they have stocked their Dreams End home with everything a vacationing family would ever need. We enjoyed coffee on the beachfront decks in the morning, sitting on the beach and by the pool from morning to late afternoon, and winding down listening to the ocean at night. I think we only turned the TV on twice the whole week. It was pure relaxation! We can't wait to return! While I've never rented in the OBX before, we've traveled a lot and rented a lot of homes and condos...Dreams End is by far the best!

Owner's Response: You and your family sure know how to vacation!! I love the fact that you hardly watched tv but instead enjoyed the ocean, beach, pool and views from the deck. That's my type of vacation. You were a pleasure to work with from start to finish and we appreciate that you took such good care of Dreams End. You are welcome back anytime!!

Heaven on Sand!

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing house. Cathy was fantastic and attentive. The house was beautiful, spacious and in the perfect location. A quick walk over the sand dune and we were on the beach. Every room had a spectacular view. My favorite was eating our meals at the dining room table while looking at the ocean. As we pulled in the driveway for the first time we were greeted by the horses in the yard. Once you were used to driving on the beach it was easy. We kept a copy of the tide chart for the week so we knew when it was high and low tide to help us know when it was better to drive. This was an amazing trip at an amazing house!
