We looked at tons of options for a little getaway and came across this one! This was by far the best vacation spot we've been to! The 4x4 beaches are remote enough to be able to enjoy the beach! The kids and dad loved being able to off-road. We were welcomed by wild horses on our first morning!! Just a...

Loved our stay at Smooth sailing, it was so beautiful and relaxing. Watching the horses on the beach was amazing!!. The only caution I would give someone that wants to rent, is that there is many stairs you need to go up and down so you have problems doing stairs, this probably wouldn't be the best place to stay.

This was the most peaceful and relaxing vacation I’ve ever had at the beach. I fell in love with the whole place instantly. The house is charming, comfortable and so thoughtfully equipped. I found everything I needed, including a great selection of books. If you’re a music lover, be sure to bring some cd’s instead of just an ipod or...

Management response:

Thanks for letting me know how your stay was. I am still working on improving the water. I've began the process of installing a rain water harvesting system. Some owners along the beach are using cisterns and their water is crystal clear. An oxygenator and uv purification should make the water much improved.

About the neighbourhood
The house is on the 4 wheel drive beach known locally as Carova. You will need a 4 wheel drive vehicle. If you are coming from the north take Hwy 158 and cross the bridge at Southern Shores. Then take Hwy 12 to the North Beaches. If you are coming from the south take Hwy 95 and then take Hwy 64 East and cross the bridge at Nags Head. Then take Hwy 12 North to Southern Shores. Stay on Hwy 12 for 19 miles to Corolla. Make sure you stop somewhere to take the air out of your tires before . You will access the beach at the Northern end of NC 12 where the paved road ends. Turn left and continue driving off-road for about 2.5 miles. Look for the green 15.5 mile post. There will be a group of houses with one house that stands out because it is right on the beach. You can not miss it because you wi... more
Getting around
Expect traffic delays on Hwy 12 on the weekends. The paved road ends in Corolla. Then you would be driving 2 1/2 miles on the beach to the house. The speed limit on the beach 15 mph. It is strictly enforced. The last grocery store before you hit the beach is a Food Lion in Corolla. The best time to drive on the beach is during low tide. A 4 wheel drive vehicle is required. Jeep rentals from Enterprise in KItty Hawk are very epensive. There is a cab company that comes out to the 4X4 beach: Corolla Cab Company.
Access

When you reserve I will send detailed driving directions and a photo with the location of the ramp marked in yellow. Also you will receive links to tide charts, videos of how to drive on sand and links to find local area shops, activities, restaurants, and discount coupons. You will need to let about 1/2 the air out of your tires. There are pumps to fill your tires at Winks and the gas station in Corolla. You can also purchase some inexpensive portable pumps that plug into a car cigarette lighter.
