Questions & Answers
Can you send me a copy of the list of acceptable cars that can drive on the beach. Also can we bring our own waverunners?
Anthony, all wheel drive (AWD) vehicles are not recommended for this area due to ground clearance and traction concerns—our experience shows that AWD vehicles in this area are problematic at best. 4x4 vehicles with off-road ground clearance are recommended with reduced air pressure for beach travel. Please consult your vehicle manual and manufacturer for specific information. Currituck County does not allow personal motorized watercraft on the ocean. Jet skis and personal motorboats are allowed on the Currituck Sound. The closest boat ramp is located at the Whalehead Club in Corolla.

i am renting idyll time i see that sandfiddler road runs to the house how is the conditions of the roads are they used alot also is that the road we take or do we go on the beach t get there. thanks
Thank you for your inquiry, Dan! To access this home you will drive up the beach approximately 8 miles before driving over the dune line and turning on the Sandfiddler. The roads in the 4x4 area are made of sand and the conditions can change daily. For example, they are more packed down after it rains. However, they are accessible.

The beach area- do cars mostly drive on the beach while people are laying out and enjoying it? I am worried about my kids! Sorry hard to explain.
Laura, the beach is essentially the highway in the 4x4 area. There are signs that designate where to drive and where to park. The middle of the beach is for parked vehicles and beach-goers. The speed limits is 35 mph unless within 300 feet of pedestrians or wild horses. Then is drops to 15 mph.

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!
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 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.

It mentions that in July and August that the pool is not heated. Is it open year round?
Barb, the pool opens April 25, 2015 and will close on October 10, 2015. Pool heat is available during the available pool dates except for the months of July and August. Due to the high temperatures during those months pool heat is not necessary, therefore the pool heat amenity is not available.

How often are Horses seen on the beach?
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. Keep in mind, they are wild - do not approach them. County ordinance states that you may not come within 50 feet of the horses at any time. Feeding, riding and petting a wild horse is prohibited. While a wild horse sighting is always an exciting event, please remember to use caution and keep your distance- these are wild animals.
