Recent Kill Devil Hills reviews

  • Good Times

    "Great location to beach. Pool - salt water - can't be beat. Closest access to a nice running trail off west first street which ties into Wright Bros memorial. Owner very accessible, if necessary."

  • Personal Favorite

    "I'm a second-generation renter of the Sound Crab; my family has been renting this house off and on since it was constructed in the '90s, and now I've returned with my own gang (this is our 3rd year). It very much feels like a second home. The open concept great room upstairs offers amazing views of the sound and comfortably accommodates numerous kids and grown ups coming in and out. The bedrooms are cozy, and the array of porches both screened and open provide ample outdoor living space--great for reading, relaxing, napping kids, and watching nature (especially birds, otters, and sunsets). My husband raves about the outdoor shower and always goes through withdrawal when we're back to reality. We've always made good use of the dock and the gazebo; though the Sound is shallow, we've launched kayaks and inflatables off the dock several times in order to explore nature up close. We also grill out most evenings (there's a charcoal grill on the upper deck) and enjoy the amazing sunsets from the "crow's nest" on the roof. The lot itself is relatively secluded and surrounded by woods (which gives the house quite a bit more remove and privacy than other ocean-side rentals). The location is super convenient to the Wright Brothers Monument and visitors center and a municipal bike trail as well as all of the beach fun of Kill Devil Hills. Favorite dives of ours are Awful Arthur's Oyster Bar and The Blue Crab Tavern. My only small complaint is with the town of Kill Devil Hills: there is no single-stream recycling. (I'd love to lobby the town gov't for that!). I love the Sound Crab and intend to keep coming back as long as we can all fit! One final note--I consider the house perfectly "kid-friendly"--it sits way back from the street and there's plenty of room to roam--however, there are a lot of stairs, so if you visit toting kids and gear, keep that in mind."

  • Awesome house

    "We had an awesome time at Bacon in the sun. The house is beautiful and very well equipped. Thomas was very easy to work with! The house is loaded with amenities! Will very much enjoyed our stay and could have stayed another two weeks. Took us about 1 minute and 30 seconds to walk to the beach. If you talk a slow stroll may take about 5 minutes! Nice view of the ocean from the front porch."

  • Great family getaway

    "I took my family for the first time to the outer banks. This was a great house. We met some of our friends down there. The ping pong, pool table and food ball was perfect. The house was clean and very comfortable. When we forgot the key, it was no big deal.....a neighbor had a spare and we got right in. We would definitely stay again."
