Kitty Hawk house description

Sunshine is a true North Carolina beach cottage designed for easy living while at the beach. Our guests can kick off their shoes after a long walk on the beach and relax on the decks with a gentle ocean breeze. It has been our beach home since 1988 and we know how relaxing it can be to kick back for a week at the beach. Kitty Hawk is part of the outer banks system of North Carolina which places you right in front of the great Atlantic Ocean with all of its power but, also, all of its relaxation opportunities. This area of the Outer Banks, usually referred to as OBX, is family oriented with no high rises and uncrowded beaches. Inside, you will find a great room with comfy furnishings, a large cable TV, and a desk with high speed internet.

The spacious dining table and a long counter with stools provides seating for everyone. We have enjoyed many pounds of fresh Carolina shrimp at that table. I have included some simple seafood recipes in the full kitchen just in case you would like to try out your skills.

The master bedroom suite permits guests to get away if they like. There is a queen size bed, a full bath, and a den with cable TV. We have lots of books for our guests. We do not feel a week at the beach is not complete unless there are good books to read. There is a nearby library for other selections. If you don't finish a book, take it with you but leave us a similar replacement.

There are table games and puzzles for family fun. The PlayStation Two has games and there are movies as well. Red Box is nearby for movies as well. Outside in the naturalized yard, there is a large charcoal grill, picnic area, swing, horseshoes, fish cleaning station, and a private outside shower. The yard is naturalized because we are close enough to the ocean that on a strong Nor'easter or, if a hurricane hits we will likely have wash over. Kitty Hawk is fortunate as far as direct hurricane hits. If you look at the map, you will see that Cape Hatteras juts our sufficiently east and south of us that most hurricanes 'bump' off of it and leave us a glancing blow.

There is an excellent National Park nearby honoring Orville and Wilbur Wright and their first flight resulting in the birth of flight in America. Sunshine is located about two miles from the Memorial. There is an excellent North Carolina Aquarium in nearby Manteo.

In the same area, guests will learn about the first English settlers on the Outer Banks. Enjoy your beach walks and leave us a couple of shells as a memory of your visit.

The Beach is calling.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1988

                  About the owner: My husband, Steve, and I have enjoyed the Northern Outer Banks of North Carolina since we were small children. Some of my favorite memories are of surf fishing with my Dad on the beach in Kitty Hawk watching the sun rise out of the water. We live in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia now and go to the beach at every opportunity.

                  Why the Owner Chose Kitty Hawk:
                  Our home, Sunshine, is located close to a small cottage we rented when our son was a toddler. The same beach located beyond our home, is the beach I fished with my Dad. At that time, there was lots of open space and a few older beach homes which have long since joined the briney deep. No matter where we have lived, when I open the door at Kitty Hawk, I feel I am home. My family knows not to talk to me on the day we leave to return home until we cross the bridge to the mainland. It has become a family joke, but I really do hate to leave.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Lindbergh is a quiet street situated between the Beach Rd (NC Rt 12) and the Rt 158 Bypass. It is ideal for biking, jogging, long walks, and relaxation. You have easy access to the beach at each end of the block. We have worked hard to maintain our dune lines and the beach access points make a big difference. You are close enough to the beach, approximately 150 feet, that you can hear the ocean and enjoy the soft pad of the surf on the beach. Our home is at the 3 1/2 milepost providing easy access to the rest of the Outer Banks. Golfing, fishing, fishing piers, boating, shopping, restaurants, movies, groceries are all close by. While at our home, there are TVs with cable, Sony Play Station Two with games, movies, puzzles, table games, and lots of good books. What is a week at the beach without a good book?
