Great location and good value. If you're thinking about checking out the 4x4 area this is a great spot. Just far enough down the beach to feel like you're away from the crowds, but not too far away from shops and restaurants. Plenty of room for a big family. The pool is a little on the small side, but as long as the weather is good you should be spending most of your time at the beach which is just a 2 minute walk away. Wild horses were close by every day and sometimes right in our back yard.

Are there baby gates available at the house
Kristin, baby equipment is not guaranteed for any of our vacation homes. Baby item requirements and recalls constantly change and many become obsolete after just one vacation season. In that regard Twiddy, along with our homeowners, made the decision to remove advertisement and discontinued the tracking of any baby equipment in our homes beginning in 2012. If you would like to rent baby equipment for your stay, Just for the Beach, Moneysworth, and Ocean Atlantic Rentals all provide baby equipment rentals. For contact information, please visit www.twiddy.com/activities/services.aspx.

Coming down in July and wondering if there is a place to rent a 4x4 quad runner ( not a truck ) and if they are legal to take to the beach ?
That's a great question! Unfortunately, ATVs are strictly prohibited.

I am wondering how difficult it is to drive to this property? Is the sand deep? Do people generally find themselves getting stuck?
Thank you for your inquiry, Kasandra! The 4x4 beach conditions do vary based on the weather and a 4x4 vehicle is highly recommended. For more information on driving on the 4x4 beaches, please visit www.twiddy.com/outer-banks-4x4-driving.aspx#oftenstuck.

Do people surf at this beach? I am not sure we should bring our surf boards or not.

where is the closest boardwalk located?
Hi Jamie! There are no boardwalks along the Outer Banks, but The Southern Half is located semi-oceanfront just two lots back from the waters edge. You can walk right down the same sandy trail that you would drive on to get to the ocean.
- Answered by Twiddy on 6/17/2013
What are some of the kid friendly attractions near by?
Jamie, there is nothing commercial in the 4x4 area where this home is located, but in Corolla, which is just about 3.5 miles back down the beach from this home, there is a grass miniature golf course, the Currituck Beach LIghthouse, the Whalehead Club and the Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education!

Do you know if they have garbage pickup ? Is bicycling possible at this location?
Jason, there is garbage pick-up on your check-in/out day and mid-week. There are not roads or paved pathways in the 4X4 area, just sand, so cycling is not easy!
