Kill Devil Hills condo description

Jay's NestEgg is a great place for:

Summer Vacations - memories are made here.
Home School from the beach for best field trip ever.
Year round School track outs - get to know the beach all seasons of the year.
Short get-aways - the welcome mat is always out.

Hughes Retreat Unit #204 in Kill Devil Hills, built in 2005, is across the street from the beach. Easy public beach access is a short distance south of Hughes Retreat at Eighth Street. It is handicapped accessible with parking and a nice ramp over to the beach. Rent anything you need (including a beach wheelchair) nearby. Our condo is tastefully decorated for maximum comfort. Our balcony overlooks the pool so you can relax and still keep an eye on the mischief taking place in the pool. A fully equipped kitchen and a great grocery nearby will make meal preparation a snap. Don't want to cook? THE best restaurant on the beach is at the end of the driveway. The master bedroom has a king size bed and a private full bath. A second bedroom has a queen size bed and the third bedroom has a pyramid bunk (aka Kids at the Beach) A pyramid bunk has double bed on the bottom with a single above and a single trundle underneath. A second full bath is across from these two bedrooms. AND there's a queen size sleep sofa in the living room for anyone who wants to stay up all night. The bunk room has TV with attached DVD/VCR player (The owner left a VCR tape with 6 hours of vintage cartoons!) The other bedrooms have Cable TV and there's a third Cable TV with DVD player in the living area. Bedroom TVs are wall mounted. After all that 'hard' walking on the beach, an elevator will take you upstairs easily. Our awesome pool is lap worthy and also great for water walking. There is assigned covered parking with space for two cars and an additional assigned space across from the front of the building.
But, PLEASE, don't spend your vacation inside the condo! The owners will provide you with information for more activities than you'll have time for, so plan to come back again and again.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: Hughes Retreat was finished in the spring of 2005 and Jim and Sara Singer are the original owners of Jay's NestEgg. Jim is a physical oceanographer (which is why this condo isn't oceanfront). He plans oceanographic research cruises and spends most of his time floating on some distant ocean, sea or gulf. Sara works as a clinical monitor from a home office (which is why this condo has great WIFI). When you are not here, she likely wants to be. Our condo is called Jay's NestEgg for our son Jay who wasn't doing so well in school so Sara took his college fund and used it as a down payment! No worries, Jay is now finishing a master's degree in accounting and doing well.

                      Why the Owner Chose Kill Devil Hills:
                      As a young couple in graduate school, we spent a LOT of time on the Outer Banks. Jim's graduate research was a study of Oregon Inlet. His thesis predicted that one day the bridge would be mostly over land. Guess what, today it is mostly over land. During our graduate school years, we spent a lot of time here in tents, trailers, less than nice motel rooms and some rentals that can't be described. We wanted a place back on the Outer Banks that was easy to get to, easy to live in and always welcoming us back. We have walked beaches all over the world and our favorite beaches of all are right here. Coquina Beach across from the Bodie Island Lighthouse and the beach just south of Oregon Inlet on Pea Island are fabulous. We'll share them with you, but don't tell too many people cause we like them to stay uncrowded.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      Sara loves to begin the day watching the sun rise over the ocean with a great cup of coffee. Later, we enjoy climbing Jockey's Ridge to watch the sunset over the sound. In between we like to just walk the beach. From the beach directly in front of the condo, look south. It's 2 miles to the Nags Head Fishing Pier. Try and walk it at least once during your stay. Do it at low tide and collect a few shells along the way.
