Great Beach House
"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."

"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."

"My wife and two small children had a wonderful time staying at this property for a beautiful spring weekend. The property is very clean, and cozy - just the perfect size for our small family. We enjoyed watching beautiful sunsets over the Sound, and relaxing in the cool spring weather in the hot tub. We look forward to staying here again in coming years."

"Kenny and Patti were so kind enough to rent their beach house to us. You walk in and it feels like home. Everything is so clean and tidy. You can really see how well the owners take care of the house. Just like another reviewer mentioned, Kenny called during the week to see how our stay was so far. This is first class service! They're so sweet and accommodating. The pool was great and I think they just updated the pool furniture. The house has plenty of space for a big group and no one felt like they were in each others way. Although you do have to cross the main highway, the beach is close by. It's about a 10 minute walk. If you have kids, I do suggest driving. There is plenty of parking by the beach. The house is in a great location and everything is close by. Kenny suggested a seafood market near the Harris Teeter which was FABULOUS! We would definitely come back and recommend this house to our friends."
