Great old school beach cottage in beautiful Kill Devil Hills. This one is not your typical beach box home. It has all the character of the fine homes built on the outer banks years ago. Knotty pine walls, floors, and ceilings are absolutely breathtaking. This home is located near milepost 10 which is almost middle of the outer banks ocean area. This area may also be refered to as the OBX (outer banks). You are close to EVERYTHING. 5 minute walk to the beach (across the street). 5 minutes to Nags Head, Kitty Hawk, Wright Brothers Memorial. A great day trip would be to drive down the beach and really see the best that the outer banks has to offer. Short drive through the Rodanthe, Waves, Salvo, and Hatteras areas takes you to the ferry and a 30 minute trip over to Ocracoke. This would really be an incredible day trip adventure.

Home has 3 full bedrooms (2 are extremely Over-Sized), 1 King Bed, 2 Queens, 1 Bunk bed that sleeps 3, and a pull out couch. 2 full baths and and over sized outside shower as well. New bedding in 2009. Pet friendly. Non-Smoking.

About The Owner

My name is Hal Pruitt and my wife Kim and I are the proud owners of this home. For years we visited the outer banks and dreamed while flipping thru all of the real estate magazines. The day we closed on this property didnt seem real to either one of us. Now our kids Seth and Monica love it as much as we do. We usually try to get one week per year here as a family but enjoy sharing it with others thru VRBO!

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Kill Devil Hills

This location is one of the best kept secret beaches in the world. Extremely friendly people, wide, non crowded beaches, and dozens of great places to eat.

What makes this house unique

Very close to the ocean but not on beach road or bypass which cuts down on traffic noise. Master has balcony with ocean views.

a great place

  • 5 of 5

A great affordable place a walk from the waves. The owner is uncommonly helpful, communicative, and accommodating.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind words and staying with us!! Please come back soon!!! We try very hard to make every vacation perfect for our guests. Our location (and service) are our main selling points. When choosing your vacation rental make sure you are truly renting from the owner. Not everyone on VRBO are owners, there are many property management companies that appear to be the actual owners and they are NOT. The level of service and response (should you need us) is significantly above most of these companies.

Great family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Our 1st experience at OBX was amazing. We were walking distance to EVERYTHING! We didn't get back in our car for the next 3days. Beach was beautiful & I was able to walk my dog to it every morning & night. People were so friendly. Miller's is replace to eat, 1 block from house and don't think about skipping the homemade ice cream, again exactly one block from the house. Thank you Mr. Pruitt for allowing to stay at your beautiful home.

Convenient to everything

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this property for a local 5k weekend. It is quite convenient to the beach, restaurants, bars, etc. While still having the small, beach town feeling.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much!! It's always a pleasure having you as our guest and we hope you return soon. For any of our potential guests reading this review please be sure that the vacation rental you book is actually through the owner and not a third-party. VRBO has begun to allow third parties to rent houses versus the owner which is not a good experience in many cases.

Great Beach Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and had everything that we needed for a great weekend. We comfortably fit 9 people in the house and it was only a block from the beach. Would definitely recommend to a friend.

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this classic OBX house. The house was very clean and in a great location with food and the beach nearby. It has plenty of space to accommodate a large family. As an added bonus, the owner is very responsive to any questions/comments you may have. We look forward to visiting again in the near future!
