    Additional Location Information
    If you mapquest or google map the address you can get a good view of the location. Search using the intersections of Seagull Lane and Sandpiper Road. You will need a 4 wheel drive vehicle. There are no actual posted street signs. The sand roads are well worn and easy to see.You would travel off road along the beach from the end of the road in Corolla about 2.5 miles to Mile Post 15.5 which is located just before the house on the beach at the edge of the water. ( It is called Laughing Gull and it's the only house right on the shore.) Take the ramp off the beach onto Sandfiddler Rd which is the sand road in the back of Laughing Gull. Sandfiddler curves left and then goes uphill onto Seagull Ln. Then at top of the hill take the first left onto Sandpiper Rd. It's the 3rd and last house on the right. Restaurants and grocery stores are a 15 minute ride into Corolla. Low tide is best for driving on the beach because the sand is firm. The sand can get soft and deep when it gets tor... more

We had a great time at this beach house. The weather was very cold, but the house had plenty to entertain young children! The only problem with this area is the outer beach if you are traveling with young children .Cars speed up and down the beach all day long. There is a private beach down the road, but it... more

Management response:

The beach road and ebb and flow of the tide is part of Outer Banks living, whether one is here for a week or for a lifetime! Those living or vacationing in the 4x4 beaches of Corolla are perhaps the most tide-dependent on the Outer Banks. For them the sand is the thoroughfare. People drive on the beach in 2... more

The house was located in a great area of the beach. It had beautiful views of sand dunes, sun sets, and wild horses. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals daily for our family. It is just a very short walk to the beach. The beds were very comfortable and the house was clean upon check in. The... more

First, the home is beautiful, and nicely appointed, at least for the things that are there and working. We had three "instant problems" on getting there. First is the area itself, not the house's fault, but you should know it. It's in the "4WD" area. We have a wonderful 4WD wagon, but one needs a vehicle that is not only... more

Management response:

I hope my returning and future guests are able to communicate freely with me. I am always available by text, email or phone if you have any questions or concerns. I truly wish folks have a good experience on the Outer Banks. In order for that to happen you need a 4X4, not an AWD on the 4 wheel drive... more
