About the Property

4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 10

New renovations and updates make this sunny cottage a true “home away from home.” The open layout is light and airy. The beach access, directly across the street, makes getting to and from the beach a breeze! We often hear from our families that are house is neat and clean. Use the well-equipped kitchen for a nice meal. Relax on the covered porches and enjoy the evening sea breeze or take in the ocean view from the sun deck. Free WiFi and DirecTV for staying in touch. You will find this home is centrally located on the OBX and is convenient to all restaurants, evening entertainment, water sports and activities. Unlike some of the beaches in the OBX, we have a full-time life-guarded beach right out the front door.

UPDATE: The Town of Kill Devil Hills is beginning a program of Beach Nourishment during the months of August and September, 2017. The nourishment zone will taper and end at Prospect St., about 1/2 mile north of Cool Breeze. This means that sand moving equipment will not be used on the beach at Carlow Ave. this summer.

The Outer Banks is a 200-mile long series of barrier islands on the coast of North Carolina that stretch from the Virginia/North Carolina State Line to Cape Hatteras. Well known for its temperate climate and expansive beaches, the Outer Banks is a favorite vacation destination for tourists from all over the world. The town of Kill Devil Hills is located in the geographic center of the Outer Banks and is most famously known as the site for the first heavier-than-air powered flight by Orville and Wilbur Wright, commemorated today by the Wright Brothers National Monument which anchors the town. In Kill Devil Hills, vacationers will find a rich history that ranges from the from the first English settlement in the New World to the dawn of the Space Age alongside the East Coast’s finest fresh seafood markets, cleanest beaches and most sought after destinations in surf and Gulf Stream fishing.

Other Activities: Climb Jockey's ridge, the tallest active sand dune system in the Eastern United States

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Three generations of the Estes Family have been vacationing in the Outer Banks for 60+ years. Howard, his wife Stephanie, and children Skip and Claudia, began spending so much time visiting the local beaches that they decided to make their plans permanent by purchasing a home right in the center of the Northern Beaches at Milepost 8. When we aren't at Cool Breeze, you can find us in Richmond or Williamsburg, Virginia, visiting our Alma Mater (all 4 of us!), William and Mary.

Why the Owner Chose Kill Devil Hills, NC, USA:
Every year since 2003, we have tried to make upgrades and listen to our guests’ suggestions. It’s been great fun to build relationships with our repeating guests as well as new ones. We have rented to families from coast to coast and international travelers from France, Great Britain and Germany. Cool Breeze is our home away from home. We have furnished it with features that we enjoy and hope that your family will find as comfortable and relaxing as we do. There are many houses to choose from in the Outer Banks. But we also know our house is very special and has created many wonderful family memories. We invite you to come stay.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
With only one lot between us and the ocean, getting back to the house to take a break from the sun or refill the cooler is easy. Our residential neighborhood is located just a short walk from many conveniences like restaurants and shops. We love the open floor plan of our home that offers bedrooms on either floor and a central gathering area for meals and entertainment. We also offer both covered and open decks for outdoor enjoyment.
