Occupancies are limited to family groups only. Occupancy for homes serviced by septic systems is regulated by the County Health Department. SWANDIPITY maximum occupancy is 12. Exceeding maximum occupancy is a material breach of the rental agreement and may lead to termination without refund of rent.The Outer Banks have always been a family oriented vacation destination. It is our policy to rent only to family groups. A family group is defined as immediate and extended family members (parents, grandparents and children) vacationing in one home. A non-family group is defined as: Unmarried young adults, high school students, fraternities and sororities or any other group-type situation. We also reserve the right to refuse rental, cancel existing reservations, return money received, and terminate occupancy without refund if the occupancy, in our opinion, is detrimental to the property. Violation of the above is grounds for immediate eviction with NO REFUND OF RENT. We operate under the North Carolina Vacation Rental Act and will commence an expedited eviction under this law if SWANDIPITY is rented under false pretenses.

    Review: We consider Swandipity our home away from home over the last 7 years. The owners take great care with the maintenance of their home and we always find it without any issues, immaculate and comfortable, and beautifully decorated.

    - Sharon 

    Review: Swandipity was serene! Our vacation experience was exceptional. It was amazing waking up or going to bed every day with wild horses right out our window! The beach was at our toes and the views of the ocean were outstanding!

    - Melanie 

    Review: Our experience was outstanding. The house had everything, right down to beach chairs, boogie boards and pool toys. Everyone, young and old alike, had a great time.

    - Joyce 

    Review: Great home; well done and decorated. Love Debbie's watercolors!

    - Wendy 

    Review: Wonderful home with great views. Lots of ammenities and great places to lounge, We especially loved the hammocks.

    - Brian 

    Review: The house was clean and well equipped. It was a very comfortable home and very close to the beach. Having the walkway out to the beach was nice so we didn't have all the dunes to cross. We will definitely make vacationing at this home a family tradition. Twiddy was extremely courteous and seemed to think of everything (even putting air in your tires!) Great home managed by a great company. Thank you!

    - Tracy

    cottage with apparent aptitude for making fortunate discoveries happen accidentally ....in Swan Beach
     New York Times:     
    Going to Greater Lengths

    And Lately, people have been pushing even farther north, past town and toward the Virginia border, where a four-wheel-drive vehicle is required to reach houses tucked away on unpaved roads.  "It's very romantic...

    Swandipity has RO (reverse osmosis) WATER flowing from the kitchen refrigerator water spout...so grab a glass of ice cold refreshing water and rest assured that the ice cubes are RO WATER as well!  No need to bring gallons of drinking water with you...you will find that the water tastes great and is checked twice a year by an independent  contractor to make sure that it meets with regulations.

    Swandipity has an extra pressure pump regulated to 80# pressure throughout the house...you may find that the water pressure is better than you have at home...we do!  It is especially envigorating in the two outdoor showers.
