About Dean Thompson

We live in Richmond, VA., but we've always enjoyed spending time each summer vacationing in the Outer Banks. In 2008, we finally decided to buy our own property as a second home that we could not only use but share with others as well. We go out of our way to keep the cottage neat and clean so our tenants can have an enjoyable, relaxing vacation.

Dean Thompson purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Dean Thompson chose Kill Devil Hills

We loved the location re: The beach, restaurants and the local drug & grocery stores. The cottage was structurally sound and it's size made it easier for us to upgrade/renovate ourselves.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is right in the heart of the Outer Banks and within 2 minutes of the beach. When it comes to convenience, comfort, cleanliness and affordability.....we found this cottage to be a great place to stay. All we had to do was add our personal touch.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best beach cottages I have stayed in . The cottage is in great shape with comfortable furniture, great decks, fully stocked kitchen, and comfortable beds. You can walk to the beach (only a couple of minutes), great restaurants and to CVS. I highly recommend this property to anyone and I will be staying here again!

Great beach cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third rental I've booked through VRBO and I always leave a very honest review. My guests and I were all very pleased with this cottage. It was very clean and well equipped with most everything you will need. The first day we arrived I was worried because it was 80 degrees in the house, seeing as it's Auguest and between 90-100 degrees outside it really wasn't that bad. The living room and master both had ceiling fans so that helped too. At night it got down to the 70s. You will need to provide your own bed and bath linens, TP, paper towels, trash bags, food and drink and that's about it. The cottage is fully stocked with anything else you could possibly need. Both bathrooms are very clean and much larger than most cottages in the area. There's also an outdoor shower which is great after a hot long day at the beach. There's a ground patio, wrap around deck, and crows nest which we all enjoyed ! A very short walk to the beach access that isn't very crowded at all. Located at mile post 9, it's very close to everything on the strip. Dean was helpful and answered at almost anytime 24/7! The price for this rental per week is AMAZING for all it offers and the location. Thank you for another great OBX vacation !

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Since summer time temperatures seem to keep climbing each year (98 degrees and more) and conventional HVAC systems are being taxed beyond their limits, we are going to have the whole system upgraded this winter so we can provide tenants the comfort they expect during a getaway matter how hot it is outside.

Cozy beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this cute beach retreat the week of July 3. The location of the house was perfect with a very short walk to the beach and many dining options. We especially enjoyed the covered deck on the main level as we spent many nights swinging on the swing, playing cards and creating new family memories. The house was well equiped with kitchen items as well as many beach items in the locked storage room. We would recommend this property to anyone!

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our extended weekend in Kill Devil Hills. The house was perfect for three children under the age of 10 and three adults, with all the amenities that we needed. The location of the house is perfect, with a short walk to the beach and a large selection of restaurant choices near by (we enjoyed the fish tacos at Food Dudes). We stayed in one night to cook dinner and the kitchen was fully stocked with all the cooking items we needed. The owner was very easy to work with and the house is in fantastic condition. We will definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice comments. For those who have enjoyed staying with can certainly understand why we bought the cottage in 2008. The location was perfect for us and the house had good "bones". We added the paint and upgrades to the bathrooms and kitchen to make it our own. We're glad we can share it with others.

Great Location and well equiped property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property from 7-5 to 7-12. This is a great location and only a 2 minute walk to the beach. We were a family of 6 and this 3 bedroom 2 bath house worked great for several reasons. Our children are small and their room had 2 twin beds instead of bunk beds, which was deciding factor for us as they are afraid of bunk beds. Also, with a set of grandparents and little children, we were looking for a centralized location with close very close proximity to the beach. The kitchen was well equiped and the property had been professionally cleaned prior to our arrival. Dean provided excellent customer service and was very responsive throughout the whole process. We loved the shaded deck on the main level as we had our dinner there and we also loved the deck on the top level as we could see the ocean from there. I would recommend this property to anyone and hope to be back in the future.

Charming Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This charming little cottage was perfect for us. It didn't have too many stairs, we loved the two decks, it was just the right size and very clean. We would definitely stay here again; and the beach is right across the street!
