I forgot to write in the guest book. I do want the owners to know they have a beautiful home that is perfect for our vacation!!! This is the second time we have been to this house and it is such an awesome experience. The front porch is my favorite spot and the wild horses are alway a treat to see. The views are beautiful! Thank you for opening up your home!!

Our 6th year at China Swan. Stayed at another home once and were not as comfortable. China Swan is perfect for us.

China Swan is a clean, and extremely nice home (wish I owned it) The location is one of the best on the outer banks. The kids can run back and forth between the beach and house with minimal supervision. I can fish within sight of the front porch, and driving my truck on the beach makes me feel like a kid again.

Of course, we'll need to provide our own beach towels, but are bed linens, pillows & bath towels provided? Also, is there a washer & dryer in the home?
Melissa, this home is one of our Twiddy Traditional Homes so linens are not provided. We do have linen rentals available for $40.00 plus tax per room, with an additional fee of $3.00 per bed for bed making if you are interested. This home will have a washer and dryer as these are a standard amenity in all of our homes.

with a 4x4 truck would it still be necessary to deflate tires to drive to house and is a beach permit required?
Excellent questions, Patricia! We only recommend 4-wheel drive vehicles for accessing the 4x4 area. Guests are strongly urged to reduce tire pressure for all vehicles before driving on the beach. A permit is not required for the Norther Outer Banks 4x4 area.

Does all wheel drive work? The ad states its for 4X4. We have an AWD Acura SUV. Would that be acceptable?
Ilona, we only recommend 4-wheel drive vehicles for accessing homes in the 4x4 area. 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.

Are there doors on the bedrooms? It's hard to tell from the pictures.
Thank you for your inquiry, Amy! The bedrooms do have their own doors, with exception to the sleeping arrangements in the level 1 game room. Those 2 sleeping arrangements can be separated by a partition, but they are in one open room.

Do you feed the wild horses to keep them coming back? If so what do you feed them.
Excellent question, Jennifer! 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 strictly prohibited. While a wild horse sighting is always an exciting event, please remember to use caution and keep your distance- these are wild animals.

We are very excited about our upcoming trip to the China Swan! Does the home have any video games or board games? Is there a DVD player? How close is the nearest convenience store for ice?
We look forward to welcoming you to China Swan, Tiffany! This home does not provide any video or board games. There are currently multiple Blu-ray players. You can purchase ice at the Carova Beach Fire Department located in the 4x4 area or Winks gas station located beside our Corolla office.
