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. In 1981 Deb's parents retired to OBX. We have been in the home rental business since 1989 when we bought our first home in the Corolla 4x4 "Penny's Watch". In 1990 we bought "Tide's End" which we owned for 17 years. In 2005 our dream home, SWANDIPITY was completed and we have shared our gift with people just like you ever since. 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, adjacent to Duck Woods Country Club. Our properties Swandipity and Waterscape are both located one hour north in Swan Beach, Corolla 4X4...known by some as CAROVA 3.5 miles after the paved road ends. You must have a 4WD vehicle to navigate the 3.5 miles on the beach. There are caretakers who live nearby to address your immediate vacation needs. Go to www.swandipity.com We hope to see you soon.

Why the Owner Chose Corolla, NC, USA:
After owning two other homes in the 4WD area of Corolla, Deb designed and we built SWANDIPITY in 2005. It is our dream home and we want to share it with you!

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. For up-to-date images of the wild horses of Corolla as well as 4x4 tips visit our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/swandipity
