Feeling lucky? You will be when you shift into 4-wheel drive and head for “The Lucky Penny!” Located directly on the oceanfront on the 4x4 beach, this home offers peace and quiet, as it is situated on ten acres. Stunning ocean views and plenty of space make this home the perfect venue for large gatherings of family and friends. A resort within itself, this pet-friendly retreat offers many amenities in a unique coastal setting.

The top level of the home will be where everyone gathers, as the great room is large enough to accommodate your entire group. The wall of windows gives a panoramic view of the ocean and allows the beautiful view of the sea to fill the room. Relax and watch TV in the living area or catch up with family and friends in the sitting area nearby. A fireplace is available for use during chillier months of the year. For those who love to sneak away with a good book, there is a loft just off of the great room that is the perfect place to read. The kitchen is equipped for preparing meals for a crowd. Two refrigerators, two dishwashers, a wine cooler, and plenty of counter space are available so multiple cooks can work simultaneously in the kitchen. Kitchen countertop bar seating is available, as well as two dining areas nearby. Be sure to step outside onto the oceanfront deck with your morning coffee to watch a beautiful Outer Banks sunrise. A half bathroom is included on the top floor. There are three master bedrooms on the third floor, each with a private bathroom. The largest of the master bedrooms includes deck access and a sitting area with a fireplace.

Seven master bedrooms are available on the middle level of the home, each with deck access and a private bathroom. Movie night goes to an epic new level in the theatre room on the middle floor, which has comfortable tiered seating. There’s no need to trek up the stairs for a snack or drink, as there is a wet bar with a refrigerator and microwave in the den on the middle level. The laundry room is also conveniently located on the second floor.

Seven additional master bedrooms can be found on the ground floor of the home, each with a private bathroom. Fun evenings are in store in the rec room, which features a pool table and card table. A wet bar with a refrigerator and microwave are nearby to keep everyone fueled up and ready to play.

The fun continues outside, where you can choose to splash in the private pool or simply lounge in the sunshine. The poolside cabana is available when you’re ready for a break from the sun. From the pool area, there is a private walkway to the beach so you’ll have your toes in the sand in no time. At the day’s end, take time to relax with a restorative soak in the hot tub. Seventeen master bedrooms and multiple common areas with a variety of amenities mean there’s something for everyone at this coastal retreat. “The Lucky Penny” will have your group feeling fortunate to spend time together on the Outer Banks!

Approximately 5.9 miles up the beach.

"The place was pretty nice, fit our group well and we had some great times there. The outer banks is a beautiful place. Most of the beds were comfortable. There were a few issues with the house. Several plumbing problems including clogging toilets and poor drainage to go along with yellow well water. None of the TVs on the second floor work. One of the washing machines didn’t work and the grills weren’t really in a usable condition. I’m sure the new owners plan on doing some renovations to it soon. All in all the house was great and Twiddy tried to solve any issues they could while 30 people were staying there. We will certainly miss the place , the pool was great and the theatre was a hit. I would recommend the place just don’t expect it to be perfect."

"Sand break was a beautiful home for our families to gather in to celebrate our parents 60th anniversary. The home was spacious enough for 38 of us to spend the week together without falling over each other. The kitchen/dining was amazing to be able to feed the crowd all week. The sleeping arrangements worked well with all the families. Another bunk room would have been helpful. The beach was amazing and the horses visited everyday!!!"

"We loved the area but the house had a laundry list of things that needed to be replaced, repaired and even cleaned. Somethings they never got around to getting to."

Kathi   ·  5/29/2021

"Overall we had a good time - but there where some issues with the house and there are a number of things that need to be updated. There were 3 ice machines in the house and 1 in the cabana and the only one that worked was the outside one in the cabana - so we had to keep refilling the upstairs refrigerators with the ice from the cabana. The TV's on the second floor did not work at all. We lost power to 3 of the bedrooms on the first floor for the last 2 days. The smoke detectors went off every 10 minutes throughout the house for 2 nights while we were trying to sleep. The water was discolored and smelled bad and we kept running out of hot water in the showers. One of the gas grills caught on fire due the grease and age of the grill. We did call and they sent someone out that took the bad grill but never came back with a new one. They also sent someone who came out for the ice machines and said that the 2 refrigerators on the top floor needed to be fixed but never were and the ice machine on the first floor wasn't plugged in, but even after plugging it in it did not work. If the issues would have been dealt with and fixed immediately, our vacation would have been a 10 out of 10. We did make the best of it though."

"Pros- Exclusive memorable view from top and second floor, great dining area. and wonderful privacy. Amazing view of sunrise and sunset. Cons- home theater equipment outdated ( we couldn't use it) , grill out dated/ in poor condition( needs to be updated). Pool / table tennis/ foosball equipment needs repairs or replacement. poolside bar and area was unusable. Hot tub works but could use an update to match such an amazing location. Our group had an awesome time."

Twiddy's Response:
Thank you for your review! The home theatre is set up for guests to view DVDs (no satellite service or ability to plug in another device). The home has a propane grill and a charcoal grill, with plans to add a 2nd propane grill soon! During your stay, new pool cues were dropped off and that equipment is assessed weekly. Given the time of year you stayed, the outside of the home was still winterized - this included the cabana, outside toilet, outside shower, and pool. We are glad you enjoyed your

"Very nice ocean front house. Some refurbishment needed. Should have the option for heating the pool."

"Sand Break is dated but doable for a large group. The layout of the home is wonderful. Unfortunately, a number of things are ragged or broken."
