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.

I almost hesitate to review because I'd like to keep this house to myself!!! It is very clean, neat, nicely decorated. Everything we needed was provided. It literally is a 2 minute walk to a public beach access. There are ample tables/ chairs outside on the porch to eat breakfast or lunch. Beds are comfy, lots of extra pillows, blankets, etc.
It was nice to have 2 restaurants and CVS within short walking distance.
We all loved our stay. A "Perfect Getaway".
We loved this property!! Very clean, great layout and well stocked!!
This beach house is precisely as depicted in the description. The owner was very quick to respond to all emails when corresponding about the rental and when confirming receipt of deposit/payment. There was no need to correspond after arriving. Everything worked (including the A/C), the home was clean and the beds were comfortable. The beach house has very quick and easy access to the beach. I would not hesitate recommending this property to a friend or relative.
Great place to stay!
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!
Thanks for the kind words. It's great to hear when guests enjoy their stay. We like to treat others the same way we would want to be treated when vacationing away from home.
Great beach cottage!
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 !
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 vacation....no matter how hot it is outside.
Cozy beach cottage
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!
It was great having you as a guest in our cottage. It's always nice to hear that families enjoyed their stay.
Perfect family getaway
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.
Thanks for the nice comments. For those who have enjoyed staying with us...you 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.
