Holiday Rental House
Seven miles from where civilization ends, a short ride up wind swept beaches north of the Currituck Lighthouse towards the end of North Carolina you'll find Wash Woods. A true Outer Banks Cottage nestled deep inside woods consisting of old live oaks, bayberries and loblolly pines. Where wild horses eat sea oats. It's here where seclusion takes on a whole new meaning. Looking to get away from it all? Take your shoes off and relax, you've found the place to do it. Located 500 yards from the beach, just a short ride up sandy roads by 4WD, Wash Woods offers all the peace and quiet you could ever want on a vacation.

A true Outer Banks Cottage nestled deep inside woods consisting of old live oaks, bayberries and loblolly pines. Where wild horses eat sea oats. It's here where seclusion takes on a whole new meaning. Looking to get away from it all? Take your shoes off and relax, you've found the place to do it. Located 500 yards from the beach, just a short ride up sandy roads by 4WD, Wash Woods offers all the peace and quiet you could ever want on a vacation. The cottage was built in 1997 and is up to date with all the amenities you need to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. Recently updated with new ceramic tile in kitchen and bath, new carpet and paint. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare complete meals for your family and friends. The cottage is simply furnished and features a master bedroom with satellite TV, guest bedroom with twin beds, family room with both double and single futons, satellite TV with surround sound and gas fireplace, (in season - Nov-April). Dine in the kitchen, in the screened room or out on the deck, there is a heavy-duty charcoal grill for your use and plenty of room to set up a volleyball court in the back yard. Keep your eyes open though, the horses have definitely been in the back yard. In fact. they've been in the front yard too. Don't be surprised to find them everywhere. Believed by many to be the descendants of shipwrecked Spanish Mustangs, there are nearly 100 wild horses that roam the area freely. You'll often find them playing in the surf. Wash Woods is just the right size for a single family or a small group of friends. Priced right for everyone, it won't take every person you know to help share the cost of the larger homes on the OBX. Imagine sitting in the hot tub on a moonless night, ocean sounds in the background, looking at the stars so bright you won't want to leave. It's the best of everything here, the activity and excitement of the beach a minute away and the quiet solitude of the woods.

We're so sorry you were stung like that. We do have the property sprayed quarterly in an effort to keep them away. We'd had a lot of rain the two weeks before your stay so I guess that contributed to the mosquitoes. Please remind me...More
