Owner info

About the owner: Barb & Terry designed and built Shooting Star in 2005. Barb grew up vacationing on the Jersey Shore, but once she found the OBX she never left. She practices in the heath care field locally and insists on 'extreme clean' and comfort for her guests. Her husband,Terry, grew up on Cape Cod, served in the Coast Guard after college. He became a marine biologist and enjoyed his migration to the outer banks. He now works privately as a marine environmental consultant. Both Barb & Terry are 'hands on' and supervise every aspect. Owners live 5 minutes away and can help with anything that will make your vacation the best ever. They know the good restaurants and activities and can even help with reservations. Barb & Terry's children work in the hospitality industry on the outer banks and love to surf, kayak, parasail and skim board in their leisure time. All of the family loves the beach and are avid boaters and kayakers.

Why the Owner Chose Kitty Hawk, NC, USA:
Shooting Star guests haves a gorgeous view of the ocean from 5 decks, 4 sunny and 1 shady. Walk 100 footsteps and you are on the beach. Beach access is on this street. When the need to relax hits you, enjoy the NEW hot tub! The private pool and sunbathing area is a new addition. The Luggage lift brings your luggage and groceries to the upper decks effortlessly. This home is super 'family friendly' with beach and baby equipment galore. You don't need to rent anything! Just load all your beach items on your large beach cart, walk 100 steps and you are at the beach. Splash in the private pool on your way back from the beach. If you like to cook this house is for you...granite counter tops, fun appliances-cappuccino and Keurig, ice cream machine, professional blenders, Cuisanart mixer. Gas grill and smooth top stove to cook your culinary creations. 2 refrigerators and a wine frig. Like to star gaze? Gaze upwards into the night sky. We can't promise that dolphins come to visit our beach, but most of our guests have had 'dolphin encounters'! They tend to swim near where the gentle waves break and some say they 'surf' ! Because the gulf stream is just offshore the ocean warms early-and our guests swim by Memorial Day. That also means great fishing! Can you tell that we love this house? So has every family that have been our treasured guests! Come and try it yourself....

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A bottle of wine, 'extreme clean' new pool and a bubbly hot tub await your arrival. A start up supply of paper products, detergents, etc., is provided. Grocery stores are less than a mile away. Swing on the 3 hammock chair swings on the front deck as you cool off from the beach or take a nap in the over-sized comfy hammock near the pool. Two urgent care centers are close by, as are drug stores...just in case. A first aid kit is provided. Mini golf and regulation golf courses are public and picturesque. Reasonably priced, too. Outer Banks restaurants are award winning and within a five minute drive. A martini bistro is 2 blocks away. Seafood, steaks and Italian are readily available; so is pizza delivery.
