About the property

Wonderful beach cottage between the highways in Kill Devil Hills NC. This cottage offers 5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, Large living room, kitchen, and dinning area that seats 16. Rec room with pool table, Air Hockey, Flat Screen and Ping pong table. Kids Den with TV and DVD. Fenced in back yard and outdoor Shower

Walking distance to beach about 2 blocks or 300 yards. Awful Arthur's Restaurant, convenience store and shopping center all within walking distance. Kmart, Theater, Food Lion, Belk's and shopping all within 1/2 mile. 5-10 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.

Fair location, but the home needs some TLC!

  • 2 of 5

We just completed a week stay at this house. Location wise, it's ok, a decent walk to the beach. The pier is down the road, however is extremely busy- not very inviting for families with small children (like we had).

The home is in fair condition as well, ready for some TLC and attention. The glass patio door has to remain closed and is about to fall off, it has a huge gap on the top which allows flies to constantly get in. There is also an insect problem in the kitchen, made it very tough to keep things out on the counter at any given point.

It is the 2nd house off a very busy road therefore the street noise is very apparent. Will need some white noise fans (which are provided in the rooms).

The home has a nice play area, downstairs. With pool table, darts and air hockey. Makes for a fun afternoon on a rainy beach day.

All in all, it was a good time for our family. We visited a lot of areas nearby and spent a lot of time at the beach. We do wish the house would've been in better condition, but we made it work.

Owner's Response: Paula, I can't tell you how disappointed I am at this review. In all honesty, we have not had a chance to go to the house recently, as it has been rented solid since May. Rest assured TLC is on its way! We cannot effect the location and I agree that the OBX is busy in the summer. Perhaps you would prefer Corolla or Hatteras for a more remote area. My kids love Avalon Pier (with the beach less than a 5 minute walk) and have for years, so I'm guessing that is a personal preference. I want you to know that we have called pest control to evaluate the kitchen situation and have contacted a contractor for the door. This is absolutely the first we're hearing of either issue. We are going to head down there this weekend between guests to assess the situation and ensure that we can continue to received 5 star status as we have in the past. I appreciate your feedback and hope to have you back, please do not hesitate in the future to reach out to us directly so we can remedy any problems during your stay. However I am glad you were able to have a nice time and spend QT with the family.

Clean spacious house, quick walk to beach

  • 5 of 5

Having never been to the Outerbanks, we were a little nervous about what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised at everything. The house was perfect. The pictures on the website don't do it justice. New flooring in the kitchen is beautiful, the bedrooms and bathrooms were just right. It is so homey and comfortable too. The ping pong/pool table kept my kids occupied and we all enjoyed the air hockey table. It was a short walk to the beach (which was beautiful) and the house is centrally located. The only down side to the trip is we couldn't go to hatteras or okracoke island because they lost power. Oh well, gives me another excuse to head back down there!

Great beach house

  • 5 of 5

Had a great week @ beach house. House had everything u need. Pictures online don't do it justice. Spacious, great location. Walked to beach/avalon pier. Part of our crew enjoyed fireworks on the beach while part enjoyed them from front porch of house since there was a clear view of end of pier from there. Comfortable beds, clean, extra fridge downstairs was great for waters / snacks for kids in basement.Thanks for a great stay @ bacon in the sun.

Love It

  • 5 of 5

This was our 7th or 8th visit to Bacon in the Sun. As usual we had a terrific time. Close to the beach and pier makes it perfect for our group. Loved the new flooring in the lower level. A wonderful, relaxing week.
