About Gregg

I was very fortunate to come upon a great deal when this cottage was on the market. I have bought and sold many properties over the years, and thought I might do the same with 'Just Coolin Out'. However, my family has truly enjoyed vacationing here so we decided to keep this property in the family.

Gregg purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Gregg chose Northern Coast & Outer Banks

This 4-wheel drive only access area of the beach is beautiful, and the seclusion is peaceful without the crowds. My cottage is beautifully decorated and offers amazing views of the area and it's wildlife.

What makes this cottage unique

This part of the beach is more secluded due to the 4-wheel drive access. Having wild horses wander around the area is a unique feature not available to most beach cottages on the east coast of the U.S. The beauty of the stars in the night sky is unlike any view I've ever seen. Plan to have a wonderful stay at 'Just Coolin' Out'.

Great time for the entire family!

The place was fantastic for what we were looking for. Comfortable and clean. Saw horses almost every day from the house. Walked to the beach daily. Thanks for a great home away from home!

We had a very good stay. The house was well furnished and everything worked. The views were amazing

  • 5 of 5

We saw plenty of horses and the house is located close to the Carolla Park and Fire house, so it is easy to find plenty of horses. Travel to the beach was convenient. House was clean and well maintained. The garage was available to store beach items. Needs to repair top left hand railing on deck. And stabilize kitchen fridge to prevent items from falling off top.

Well maintained home and wonderful decking and views. Beautiful Ocean vistas and setting sun toward the sound. Cool Breeze is appropriate as the evenings reward you with a Cool Breeze

Great place and beautiful beach!

  • 5 of 5

We went with two families. Nine of us in all.

Getting to the house can be bit of a harrowing experience. Be absolutely sure that you have 4X4 as you will not make it in a 2 WD and perhaps not even make it in an AWD. 4x4's are rentable in town if you do not have one. You will be driving approximately 6 miles on very soft sand north of the last paved road. You're beach driving needs to be timed with the tide. I suggest you avoid driving on the beach 4–5 hours surrounding peak high tide. It's about a 30 minute drive from the beach ramp.

Be sure to stop at Food Lion, Walmart or Harris Teeter before going to the house. You likely will not want to make the trip on the beach too many times. And, the beach is REALLY beautiful!

If you enjoy beach fishing, Gear up at one of the local bait and tackle shops. They are very helpful about letting you know what fish are biting and what bait to use. You will need a fishing license which can be easily purchased online.

The house is a large three-story, open beachhouse. With a two car, oversized garage. Plenty of room. There is a large open living room/dining room/kitchen on the third floor with great views of the ocean. There is also a huge open deck facing front and rear with a small screened in area with the grill. Propane is provided. It was a great place to fire up ribs, corn and hamburgers and hotdogs.

Most of the bedrooms are on the second floor. They are spacious with a bunk bed (twin bed on top and full bed on bottom) in one room, two twin bed in another room and a queen in the third room. There is another master bedroom on the third floor with a queen bed as well. Everyone got to sleep in their own bed. The beds are comfortable and clean. Be sure to bring sheets and/or sleeping bags as these are not provided.

Enjoy the wild horses. They are absolutely beautiful!! Sometimes, they'll even come strolling up the beach. The kids loved watching them.

Unfortunately, our vacation was unexpectedly abbreviated. We did not get to do the excursions we wanted. It looks like two excursions are well worth checking out though. The Wright Brothers Museum and Hatteras or Curretuck/Corolla ( which is a whole lot closer ) Lighthouse are well worth the visit.

For the most part, plan on just chillaxin' at the beach and around the house. There are boogie boards, skim boards, and I left a large tent in the garage. These are perfect for the kids and adults to enjoy.

Enjoy and relax!

We had a great week here, we loved that we could disconnect and enjoy nature in all its beauty.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great week for our family, the kids loved being right there next to the ocean, and seeing the horses everyday was a joy! The house was well decorated and equipped, allowing us to get away from the real world and enjoy some quite family time. We can't wait for our next trip!

Great Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

We all had so much fun on this 4x4 getaway. Our first drive on the beach was a little scary, but we quickly got the hang of it. The house had a great view of the beach and was very clean. We were a mix of all ages, and we were all comfortable. Our goal for the week was lots of time playing in the sand, water, and relaxing and we were able to enjoy all of that. The manager of the property was very quick with responding to questions along the way. We hope to return!

Our cottage is located in beautiful Corolla, NC only accessible with 4WD, where horses still roam the beaches freely. You cannot ask for a more beautiful view of the ocean! It is located 6 miles after the paved road ends, so you must have a 4-wheel drive vehicle to access the cottage. Grocery stores and shopping centers are about 11 miles from the cottage. (5 miles after reaching the paved road). Surfing, fishing, swimming, sunbathing, beachcombing, and long beautiful walks in nature are very popular activities. Gift shops and restaurants are located in Corolla as well as Duck which is just a little further south.
