Kill Devil Hills house description

This is a beautiful, well-maintained and nicely decorated property with approximately 2900 sq. ft. The house layout allows you and your family to participate in a variety of activities - together or in small separate groups. One group can be playing pool, another listening to music in the den and a third watching TV in the great room. The large, grassy backyard gives you the opportunity to use the six-person hot tub and the private pool and spend some quality vacation time with those four-legged members of your family!

On the ground floor you will find a small kitchen-like area with a full size refrig and microwave, table and chairs. This area also includes a gate and railing that allow you to keep your pet(s) in a comfortable and safe area of the house. There is also a pool table, a foosball table, half-bath, seating, and TV. The new (2014) full-size washer and dryer are located in a double doored closet on this level as well. Books, games and puzzles are provided.

On the middle level, there are three large bedrooms. You will find one bedroom (the blue bedroom) with a queen bed that shares a common walk-through bathroom with another bedroom (with a pyramid bed-double on bottom, twin on top) as well as a comfortable twin roll-out bed and a porta-crib. Another queen bedroom (the pastel room) uses a full hallway bath. There is also a cozy den area with TV, DVD/VRC/stereo. There is a queen-sized sofa bed as well. Outside areas accessible from this level include a partially-covered back deck and covered front porch.

On the top level, there is a wonderful, open great room with living, dining and kitchen. Two sliders lead to a top front deck that is partially covered, and off the kitchen, there is a small open back deck. A half bath is conveniently located off the great room. The very large and comfortable master bedroom/bath has a king size bed and a twin pull-out sofa with a slider leading to the front deck.

Each bedroom has its own TV and DVD or VCR and there is a TV in the pool table room, in the den and in the great room.

Check-in is 4:00 pm on Saturday and check-out is 10:00 am on Saturday.

Security deposit is required: $400. To reserve the home, the security deposit plus one-half the rental amount is required. The rest of the rental amount is due 30 days before the rental period. Security deposit is refunded within 45 days of departure (probably much sooner!) if there is no damage.

Upon vacating, renters must leave the home reasonably clean and orderly, just as they found it. Excessive dog hair must be vacuumed. Refrigerator needs to be empty and trash must be removed.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: We first came to OBX in 2002 and quickly fell in love. One thing led to another and we purchased our first home that same year (which we have now sold) and then we purchased Kill Devil Rum in 2005. We love coming to the beach and enjoying all the fabulous restaurants - our favorite is The Black Pelican and we love walking to Goombays on beach road - only a block away! Living on the water seems to be in our blood as we live on Lake Anna in central Virginia. We have made our house pet-friendly because we can't imagine going on vacation without ours - we need everyone who uses this house to responsibly monitor his/her pet(s) to insure that there is minimal damage to the house and furnishings.

              Why the Owner Chose Kill Devil Hills:
              This house is located in the heart of Kill Devil Hills, near many amenities including the beach - only a block away! The street is not heavily traveled and is quiet. The rooms of this house are quite large compared to many other four bedroom houses. We immediately felt at home!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The backyard is a real highlight of this property. It is fenced-in with a grass lawn - no cacti or sand spurs jabbing you in the feet! The pool/spa area has great outdoor furniture for spending lots of quality time outdoors. There is also an outdoor shower for rinsing off the sand from the beach before entering the house or pool. Curious about how we came up with the house name? When you rent the house, you'll find out our inspiration.
