About the neighbourhood
The house is on the 4 wheel drive beach known locally as Carova. You will need a 4 wheel drive vehicle. If you are coming from the north take Hwy 158 and cross the bridge at Southern Shores. Then take Hwy 12 to the North Beaches. If you are coming from the south take Hwy 95 and then take Hwy 64 East and cross the bridge at Nags Head. Then take Hwy 12 North to Southern Shores. Stay on Hwy 12 for 19 miles to Corolla. Make sure you stop somewhere to take the air out of your tires before . You will access the beach at the Northern end of NC 12 where the paved road ends. Turn left and continue driving off-road for about 2.5 miles. Look for the green 15.5 mile post. There will be a group of houses with one house that stands out because it is right on the beach. You can not miss it because you wi...
Getting around
Expect traffic delays on Hwy 12 on the weekends. The paved road ends in Corolla. Then you would be driving 2 1/2 miles on the beach to the house. The speed limit on the beach 15 mph. It is strictly enforced. The last grocery store before you hit the beach is a Food Lion in Corolla. The best time to drive on the beach is during low tide. A 4 wheel drive vehicle is required. Jeep rentals from Enterprise in KItty Hawk are very epensive. There is a cab company that comes out to the 4X4 beach: Corolla Cab Company.
