Kill Devil Hills cottage description

This 1968 original is located across from the historic Wright Brothers monument. It is an easy walk to the ocean with an amazing beach access that includes rinse off area, free parking, and boardwalk. Lifeguard on duty during the season ! It is the perfect island getaway for a couple or small family. (Total square footage is less than 600 sq ft)

El Cerrito Place is centrally located so whether you plan to see every lighthouse on the beach, fish from the pier or on a charter, shop the Outlet, or just relax on the beach...you are in the middle of it all while at the same time coming home to the quiet serenity of Salem Avenue.

Prepare a meal inside on the new electric range, or opt for the park grill located just off the front deck.

In the late afternoons enjoy an outdoor shower with the just-built hot/cold bath house onsite. Then, relax in the hammock and watch the sunset.

El Cerrito Place features hardwood floors, high wood-beam ceilings, bamboo shades, and lots of windows for an open feel.

Our goal with El Cerrito Place was to update it with modern amenities while maintaining the original character of a classic beach cottage. During the past year we have worked hard to do just that, adding new lighting, stainless appliances, Hi macs counter top, new siding and windows, large wall-mounted flat screen TV, outdoor shower, leather sofa, rattan chairs, Bali-style ceiling fan, wicker headboard, composite deck, and original local artwork. More to come, but for now that is El Cerrito Place !

If you are looking for upscale luxury, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a good, clean cottage that is a reminder of the original beach days, you have found your property.

Come, be our guest !

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: We are local to Northeastern North Carolina. We have always loved the beach and have owned several properties in the past, while searching for our 'dream property'. Well, now we have found it and given it a name- El Cerrito Place.

                  Why the Owner Chose Kill Devil Hills:
                  This cottage was built in 1968. The charm and originality of eras past is still very much alive in this place ! We have upgraded to cedar-shake style siding and have more plans to make other improvements over time while taking special care to enhance the existing architectural components.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  This cottage is centrally located. You can walk outside and go to the street and see the Wright Brothers National Monument. You can walk just down the block and see the mighty Atlantic ocean. As you map out your itenerary, you will find that El Cerrito Place is the perfect place to start.
