The home was very well equipped and was perfect for our needs.
Terrific home with plenty of common areas on each floor. The sunroom off the kitchen was a cozy place to watch the sunset. Having the hot tub on the deck instead of out by the pool made it easily accessible on the chilly late winter/early spring days.

Twiddy's 4x4 Beach driving info says "4x4 vehicles with off-road ground clearance are recommended ... for beach travel." From Twiddy's experience what 4x4 vehicles (make & model) are recommended for driving to and from and on Carova Beach? Thanks!
Asked by Don 6/9/2015
Answer Don, we only recommend 4-wheel drive vehicles for accessing homes in the 4x4 area. All-wheel drive or 2-wheel drive vehicles do not typically have ground clearance for driving in the soft sand. Please consult your vehicle manual and manufacturer for specific information. Twiddy & Company will not be responsible for vehicle recovery if inappropriate vehicles are used for access to the northern beaches. For additional information about 4x4 driving, please visit http://www.twiddy.com/outer-banks-4x4-driving.aspx. For guests that do not have a 4-wheel drive vehicle, we offer satellite parking at our Corolla office. Permits can be purchased at the front counter on the day of arrival. For information on pricing, please contact the office at 1-800-489-4339.Answered by Twiddy on 6/10/2015

Answer Hello Elizabeth! The 4x4 area is home to the wild horses of Currituck County. The possibility of catching a glimpse of these unique creatures is practically commonplace.
