Chillin is so Chill!
"We loved our week at Chillin! The house is pristine, with lots of light -- very roomy. Enough space for everyone (in our case, a family of four) to spread out, or spend time hanging out together. It had everything we needed, down to fun puzzles and games for the kids. The beds are super comfy, and there are two very nice flat screen TVs. The house is on a very quiet street, but very close to the beach (close enough to hear the waves at night). My kids (3 and 8) had so much fun -- we made some really special family memories there. The area under the house was ideal for rainy-day scooter time, and the fenced yard was perfect for frisbee time. The downstairs shower was ideal for post-beach rinse-off, and the gated upstairs deck was lovely for outdoor meals, complete with sea view. The beach was peaceful, not crowded at all even on the hottest days. It's a short drive to all kinds of fun stuff, like the NC Aquarium, Jennette's Pier. A must for us: two nearby cafes that have excellent coffee/espresso, and there's even a wonderful wine and cheese shop. Most of all, we appreciated Hariet, the owner, who responded immediately to my texts when I had any questions, and was very helpful with giving us all the information we needed to make our stay perfect. It's clear that she and her husband have gone to great lengths to make Chillin special. We will be coming back next year!"

"I spent a wonderful week at Ron's lovely casa beginning on Labor Day weekend 2014. The apartment is larger than it looks in the pictures and is charmingly decorated. The week was part holiday and part writing retreat for me and the large private backyard was a perfect location for the latter purpose. It was also purr-fect for my two older cats that I brought with me and who spent every moment they could lounging on the patio.
Ron met me on arrival and provided lots of helpful information about the area (it was my first trip to the Outer Banks) as well as a chilled bottle of wine in the fridge to welcome me to the beach. :) Even though he lives upstairs, you would never know he's there unless you need him for something.
The location is great: close to shopping, dining, the Wright Brothers Memorial, and just a 3-minute drive to the Kitty Hawk beach (with plenty of free parking available). Tip: Head about 20 minutes south to Coquina beach, my favorite of all the ones I visited during my stay.
I highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the OBX!
P.S. I tried to submit this review right after my trip and VRBO wouldn't accept it. Not sure what the problem was but wanted to get it in as people are now booking for the 2015 season."

"This was our second stay at Gracie Bell's Sea Shell with our family. There is room for everyone and yet room to get away from everyone too! It is right on the ocean, just a dune away, but close to all types of shops and restaurants. We usually chose to eat right there at the table overlooking the ocean. The BBQ grill got alot of action while we were there and steaks on the grill the last night were super. Thanks to the owners, the Ellis', for keeping the house clean and comfortable."

"This is our second Christmas Break in OBX. This cottage has everything you need. We walked into a spotless cottage stocked with everything one would need for a weeks stay. Our week included quite a bit of rain and we were very comfortable indoors. Johnny is attentive and I imagine would be great to work with if you had a problem. We had none and our stay was perfect."
