The Gull Cottage is even better then the photos! It has new decking, counters, breakfast bar, shower curtains, bedding, and so much more. The hot tub was moved up by the pool. The owners have done a GREAT job! We loved the home, and it's location at the end of the beach. Thank you!

Questions & Answers
Is it ok to have an all wheel drive vehicle as well as 4 wheel drive?
Erin, we do not recommend driving an all-wheel drive vehicle, we strongly recommend driving four-wheel drive vehicle. All-wheel drive and 4-wheel drive are easily confused. The easiest way to tell them apart is that all-wheel-drive systems are always on, and they use electronic sensors to determine which wheel should get a car's power. Four-wheel drive, meanwhile, is usually disengaged, that is, until you flip a switch or pull a lever to engage it. Then all four wheels turn at the same time. All-wheel-drive vehicles tend to get stuck in such situations, because sensors have trouble determining exactly where to send power. Four-wheel-drive vehicles don't have that problem, all wheels turn at the same speed to power through nearly any obstacle.

can you please tell me why a 4x4 vehicle is required? I have never traveled to the outer banks and am looking for a first house to rent.
We would love the opportunity to host your first Outer Banks vacation, Rachel! We only recommend 4-wheel drive vehicles for homes located in the 4x4 area because you drive on the beach to access these homes.
