About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps up to 12)

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.

Watch the sunrise with your morning coffee. Convenient to golf, shopping, great dining and sight-seeing. The refreshing Atlantic Ocean is just steps away.

Good Experience

  • 4 of 5

Pros: Great price and great location. Very close to the beach and restaurants! The house was very spacious and had a well stocked kitchen. There was a pool table and air hockey and multiple tvs. The deck was really nice. Lots of seating in the kitchen. It is dog friendly and has a fenced in backyard. The beds were very comfortable. Cons: The overall house just felt kind of dingy and had a musty smell. The house needs a deep clean, there was insufficient lighting in kitchen and backyard had old boards & cigarette butts in the yard. The first 3 people who showered got hot water but whoever was last got a cold one.

Owner's Response: I do hope that your party had a great new years and I appreciate your response and recommendations. It is very important to us that we hear from our guests how we can make a good experience great. We are working on the "musty smell". It is a very familiar aura found in older homes on the Outer Banks after years of salty ocean air perpetuates wood built houses. We have just removed all the carpet downstairs and replaced with tile and purchased a dehumidifier to improve the air downstairs. My hope that getting rid of the old carpet will make a huge difference! And I agree that the house is due for a deep cleaning. We try to keep our rates down by not charging/hiring a cleaning fee. After a few rounds of guests, regretfully, it catches up with us. We will be heading down there in a few weeks with our supplies and plan to hire a service during the peak summer season and maybe beyond if necessary. We'll work on the boards in the back as well. We have a Maltipoo and I have worried myself! I've never had any feedback on the kitchen lighting, but will check it out. And as for the showers, there is not really anything I can do about that. We haven't experienced any problems in the past, so either its the bitter cold in December that isn't a problem in the summer months, or something we need to check out when we go down there. As for the cigerette butts, well that is just common and disappointing. I'll put my tweens to work when we get down there to get that cleaned up (and make sure they never start smoking!) Thanks again for the recommendations and hope you'll join us again.

  • 5 of 5

The place was really nice. Not only was it in a VERY convenient area, but everything was either walking distance or biking distance! 200 yards from the beach? How can you beat that! The listing description doesn't do this house justice. It's incredible! The house could have been cleaned a little better by previous guests, but the dogs didn't mind finding a couple extra toys to play with! The AC did have some issues the first few days but Thomas quickly had a maintenance guy come to fix it and we were comfortable in the house getting away from 80+ degree heat. If you stay here, or even in the area make sure to stop at Chili Peppers! Awesome food and great margaritas!
