For over 40 years the Kneas family has vacationed at the Outer Banks in Kill Devils Hills, NC. Elizabeth and Harvey Kneas purchased this vacation home in 1960's just after the historic Ash Wednesday storm. The Kneas' brought the house as vacation home while residing in Portsmouth, Virginia, about 1 1/2 hours north of the OBX. Originally, a two bedroom flat roof cottage, the family has designed and remodeled the home into a perfect family gathering location. The Kneas family has spent many years at the 'cottage' hosting reunions, birthdays, anniversaries and just summer fun beach time together. Sons Butch and Jim grew up spending lazy summer days at the beach and later working as lifeguards, bartenders and other odd jobs through high school and their college years. Now the Kneas' grandchildren and great-grandchildren enjoy the cottage; this third generation is learning to body surf, build sand castles, play putt putt and enjoy all the OBX has to offer.

We loved this home!
We had an incredible weekend! This home was perfect for us, our kids, & our parents. We came down Thursday with our family, got married on Friday in Manteo, & enjoyed the rest of our time there finding beach goodies. We would love to return & stay at this beautiful spacious home again soon. Thank you so much for sharing this place with our family!
Congratulations on your nuptials! We are glad you enjoyed your stay. The home had always been a place for families, our parents who bought the home fot this purpose 40 years ago are smiling in heaven. Thanks for your comments.
It was very nice and everyone enjoyed the accommodation.
Very nice house and I especially like the way it was decorated.
What an accommodating home!
This home has a boat load of space for large families. Only problem, the iron & ironing board. I would suggest updating both for those who have packed for a long stay & need to iron. Other than that, I definitely recommend this home for your visit to the OBX!
Thank you for your review, we enjoyed having you as a guest in our home. We appreciate your comments and will definetly replace the iron and board. Thanks for the suggestion.
Perfect family vacation
Thank you for letting us stay in your home. There was plenty of room for 9 adults and 5 kids. Your home is well equipped, BBQ, AC, outside shower, games... just to name a few. Every day we drove one vehicule to the beach to bring all the stuff while everyone else took a short walk (8-10 min) to get to the beach. The weather was perfect. The beach and the waves were amazing... kids and grown ups had a blast. Thank you again for your hospitality and hope to visit again in the near future.
Thank you for staying in our home, you were the perfect guests. We are glad you enjoyed your time in the OBX. Your welcome to come back anytime.
