Great location /close to beach
The four of us had a great time this week at Smooth Sailing. The view was incredible. The horses visited us a few times right in the driveway and under the house, as well as on the beach. We did get quite a bit of rain at the beginning of the week which made for lots of mosquitoes. There are a few hornet nest that need to be taken care of as well. My son was stung the moment we arrived. I would suggest putting up curtains or some type of blinds on the main door which leads into the master bedroom for privacy. All in all, we enjoyed ourselves and had a relaxing week playing in the waves!
Sorry your son was stung. I search the rafters under the deck and spray every Saturday but the hornets are persistent. There's bug spray under the kitchen sink and it's effective and fast acting. One squirt and the hornets are done. Mosquitos are a nuisance when there's no wind. Fortunately on the beach there's almost always an ocean breeze. The full length glass door is nice for the miles of unobstructed view of the dunes. The area is very private. I am reluctant to hang blinds because of damage to them from pets. I will attach rod so one can hang a curtain if one chooses.
awesome beach house
My husband, daughter, dog and myself just stayed here for a week and had a great time! The first day we pulled into the driveway and there were wild horses grazing right in front of the house. Very easy and quick walk or drive to the beach. Amazing ocean views from the deck so close you can hear the crashing waves. Great outdoor shower to wash off sand. Owner is great & responsive to any questions I had.
Amazing views, great value!
This home was very comfortable and perfect size for my family of 5, the views of the ocean, dunes, and wild horses from the deck were amazing and provided us with a very peaceful, relaxing week.
Absolutely beautifull and had everything we needed. Can't wait to come back!
Corova 4x4 Beach Access, Corova, NC, USA
Absolutely loved the quiet and privacy. awesome views ,loved the house. the dogs loved it to! I just have one observation to make .There was no mention in the website that towels and linens were not provided .We stayed at a house just north on sand piper road two years ago and towels and linens were provided so we were not prepared...not a big deal ,we made out fine with beach towels and light blankets we found in the closet.It did not detract at all from a wonderful week but it might be worth it to mention in the info....thumbs way up!!
Very enjoyable and great location.
We thouroughly enjoyed our stay. Perfect for a small family. The wild horses greeted us the first night and were around every day
There are 2 grocery stores in Corolla; Food Lion and Harris Teeter as well as a local market for fresh seafood. There are also great waterfront restaurants in Duck. Then of course there is Kitty Hawk for all kinds of restaurants, night life, adventure parks, hand gliding, parasailing and surfing lessons. There are great bike trails in Corolla and Duck and you can ride for miles between the towns or to the waterfront at the Whalehead Club (Lighthouse) and on nature trails. There are 2 parks with nature trails with platforms overlooking marshes open to the public. The wild horses roam free only on the 4 Wheel Drive Beach between the end of the road in Corolla and the Virginia border. It's quite a rare treat to see them grazing on the dunes or on the beach. Most area residents and visitors are very protective of the ecology. Groceries come in paper bags so you won't find plastic litter on the beach. The ocean is pretty awesome if you aren't used to it. The surf and waves are not huge on the stretch of beach in Corolla. You will find the sound of it is very relaxing. I will keep you informed of any weather conditions. Aside from being able to walk to the beach in one minute you will be part of the 4 Wheel Drive Beach community. It isn't considered remote. It has great police and fire protection services. Our home is 15 minutes from Corolla restaurants. a movie theater and 24 hour food stores. It's a busy vibrant area in the summer.
