Kill Devil Hills cottage description

The 'Turtle Shell' is nice and clean, a non-smoking cottage, newly redone 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom beach cottage with enclosed garage, as well as bath and laundry area. The cottage is located on Wrightsville Blvd between the highways (Beach Rd-Hwy 12 and the By-Pass 158) in Kill Devil Hills, NC a stone's throw from the Mile Post 10.
We want to help you book our cottage with ease using this site or if you would like to call us at 252 482 8517 or 252 331 3034 plz don't hesitate to call. We will answer all your questions and work with you to make this an enjoyable vacation experience from start to finish.

Enjoy gathering around the island between the open dining room and the kitchen with a dishwasher and microwave. This is a traditional beach box style cottage with enclosed garage.

The cottage has 1 queen bed (master), 2 twin beds (2nd bedroom), 1 double bed (3rd bedroom). 1 additional twin bed downstairs in extra room as well as 2 folding cots (best for kids) in garage are available for an additional cost/bed or cot, $5/night low season and $8/night high season, which includes the linens for each cot. Leave that high chair, crib, bikes, etc at home; OBX Beach Rentals is literally another stone’s throw away (see map). Hickory hardwood floors throughout the whole upstairs. Ceiling fans throughout the cottage as well as central heat and air. Enjoy the covered open porch in Wicker or Adirondack chairs after a day sunning and swimming on the beach.

We prefer to rent to adults and families as this is a family centered beach town. Rates include: The rental with cable and WiFi, 1 sets of linens (sheets and towels) for each bedroom (enough for 6 people), the cleaning fee and all the taxes. 1 additional twin bed and 2 folding cots are available for additional persons, for
$5-8/person/night linens will be provided for them. There is a Refundable Damage Deposit fee of $500. We return it within 1-2 of your leaving after the cleaning crew comes and checks out the cottage.

Stop sign at Wrightsville Blvd takes you to 8th street that is an easy 1-2 minute walk to direct public access and a boardwalk to the beach. The other end of the street dead ends, making for enjoyable walks without the traffic.

Within walking distance of many of the restaurants like The Flying Fish, Mama Kwan’s, Dare Devil Pizza, Pizza Hut, Arby’s, Bob’s Grill, Miller’s, Five Guys, Wendy’s, Burger King, McDonald’s and many more. Various stores for shopping are also within walking distance. Ben Franklin, Harris Teeter, Beach Rentals are only 1-2 minutes away walking.

The cottage has plenty of parking with a concrete drive and an asphalt drive plus room for 1-2 more cars in the garage. The garage has plenty of space to store your fishing rods and beach accessories.

There is a heated and cooled full bathroom with tub/shower combo, toilet and tub sink underneath the cottage containing storage as well. The washer and dryer are located in this spacious area.

There are 2 corn hole boards & 8 bags for you & your family & friends to enjoy a game. Please just remember to leave it in garage when finished. An air hockey/ping pong table is in garage as well to enjoy.

You will be located near the Wright Brothers Memorial, Outlet Mall, Manteo, Elizabethan Gardens, The Lost Colony Play, North Carolina Aquarium, Jockeys Ridge State Park, Bodie Island Lighthouse, Jeannette and Avalon Fishing Piers and Charter Boat Fishing. We highly recommend the beautiful drive down Rt. 12 through the Cape Hatteras National Seashore and a visit to the Currituck Lighthouse, and Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, 2 blocks from the ocean, and less than 1 mile to a beautiful sunset on the sound, this cozy getaway is in the heart of the Outer Banks.

Centrally located at MP 10, The Turtle Shell is 'between the highways'. This Sunday to Sunday cottage has early check-in at 12 noon and check-out at 9 am the following Sunday. The 'Turtle Shell' is great for a couple, small family, or groups wanting to keep additional family & friends close by.

Our home, although in the tradition of the basic beach box style, the property is fresh and clean. It was renovated fall 2010 to spring 2011. The owners are always updating and replacing items as needed to make your stay more enjoyable.
