Say Hello to our friend! 'ALOHA' is a relaxing and clean- centrally located- 4 bedroom, 2 full bath, 3 level beach cottage located in KIll Devil Hills Mile Post 9, between the highways, 1 lot back from beach road with great ocean views. IF YOU LIKE LONG WALKS TO AND FROM THE BEACH- DO NOT CONSIDER THIS HOUSE- WE ARE VERY CLOSE!!!!

The cottage has 1 king bed, 2 queen size beds and 2 sets of bunkbeds, with 2 full baths and an outside shower with ample changing room. We have a hot tub that is professionally maintained year-round. A ground level drink cooler keeps your favorite beverages chillin' so you can stay hydrated! The cottage has two decks that face the ocean with full sun all day up top with plenty of shade on the bottom deck.

We have a public beach access that is a one minute walk from the house that has lots of parking, public showers a bike rack and a LIFEGUARD STAND! ***Note to moms and dads-- the cottage is so convenient to the beach, that if trips are needed back and forth for the little ones, it is easy. One of the many reasons we bought the cottage.

The property has ample parking, a gas grill, basketball court, horse shoes,a volleyball net and a picnic table for a family feast.

'ALOHA' is located where you can get away ,but not be too far away, in a beach neighborhood ,of owners, that are friends. Shopping, drug stores, restaurants, and local 'watering holes' are all within walking distance.

This is our beach vacation home that we enjoy relaxing in, going to the beach, and eating the best food the beach has to offer. If more is needed, then----- The Wright Brothers Memorial, Carolina style golf,--- Jockeys Ridge State Park,--- The North Carolina Aquarium, ----Wild Horse Sighting Tours, The Lost Colony Play and World Class Fishing should be on your to-do list. Cape Hatteras National Seashore and the Currituke-Bodie Island- & Cape Hatteras lighthouses are all within 90 minutes of 'ALOHA'. *** In 2011, Jennettes Pier reopened. It is now owned by the North Carolina Aquarium Society - they have plenty of fun things for the kids to check out. **In 2012 we added ceiling fans/lights to the three adult bedrooms. The cool breeze and white noise has made for even better sleeping. New Hot Tub for 2014 and new Hammock. In 2015 we added a set of deck chairs facing the ocean and flat screen TV's in every room.

About Anthony Davis

We are a family of four that loves the Outer Banks and have beached here since we were kids. We have always enjoyed going with another family. We found that we enjoyed a cottage like 'ALOHA' far more than a motel/hotel. We feel at 'home' for a week at the beach. Convenience being key, with a family.

Anthony Davis purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Anthony Davis chose Northern Coast & Outer Banks

ALOHA has a GREAT location. It is right at a beach access that has showers and a Gazebo on the walk over the dunes. This is a big deal as getting onto the beach at the OBX, an access is required. Many people- while walking by our house on the way to the beach say- They wished they were at our house! Lifeguard Station- Yes this is still the ocean and as a parent and someone that has felt the power of the ocean, having a lifeguard RIGHT THERE is comforting. This cottage is easy in and easy out. It has the 'Beach Feel' that we wanted with the ease of entertainment and food all being close. The beach access being so close and so nice was key for us as we chose our home. With awesome morning sunrise views and with plenty of beach activity around you will enjoy this cottage like we do. Our beach house has the views and convenience that make a great cottage and will give you a 'HOME' in the Outer Banks.

What makes this cottage unique

Having plenty to do close by keeps the kids busy, and if part of the group wants to stay at the beach while others go back to the cottage, it is convenient that way. With the public access showers it allows you to get the sand off instantly from coming off the beach, something you take for granted until you either have to get in a car or walk forever to your place. Not here-- beach- stop in the Gazebo on the walkway across the dunes-- de-sand / de-beach the whole family, then take a short walk home.

The life guard station adds a blanket of security that everyone appreciates.

There will be corn-hole tournaments at the local 'watering hole' if you need a break, from your vacation-- dad!

Adequate Vacation Home

  • 3 of 5

Stayed in this home for a week in summer 2016. Adequate is really best way to describe this home. Arrived and place hadn't been cleaned and there was only one key. Contacted owner and couldn't reach quickly. After a while was contacted by the maid service who was very apologetic and did make things right. Missing second promised key was never addressed, so had to make do with one, which was inconvenient. Beach access is a short, direct walk which was great. However, be aware that you must go up and down a lot of steps to get over a dune at that beach access. This is more work when carrying beach gear and babies. Would be very difficult with anyone with physical limitations in the group. There is a bar and grill next door with outdoor dining and games going on until late. This in itself was not an issue for us (in fact, it is a good restaurant and worth enjoying a meal and/or drinks there). The problem is in the early morning when the food service and beer delivery trucks start rolling in. There is a LOT of noise between the backup warning noises and doors clanging and banging, etc. if you want to sleep in even a little, forget about it! The house itself doesn't appear to have ever been updated or had carpet replaced which may or may not matter to you. Was equipped with items that were useful for young ones and kitchen was equipped pretty well. If you want decent pans to cook in, bring your own. There were numerous burned out light bulbs which was annoying. If you have a thought to using bottom floor as sleeping space for anyone, you'll be disappointed. It's pretty damp and doesn't really lend itself to that.

Welcome Relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your wonderful vacation home with us! I have not had such a relaxing vacation in quite some time. The location of this house is perfect especially for children. All of the beds were really comfortable and the house is cute. As the parent of a 4 year old I appreciated the lack of knick-knacks. It was also really nice to have Dare Devils Pizza right across the street. That made for a couple of easy meals. The most difficult part of the week was the packing up and leaving!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice words. We have young children and we bought Aloha for all of the reasons you mentioned. The distance to the beach, restaurants close by for a quick lunch and a TON of things to do near by. From the Pit for teenagers to laser tag/putt putt for everyone else. We are glad you enjoyed yourselves. Anthony

Great Location & Nice Home

  • 5 of 5

The location and the size of the home are great! The pictures do not show enough of the home, in my opinion, nor do it justice. We had a cleaning complication when we arrived but Anthony took care of everything and was very nice about everything. He was available if we needed him by phone or text which was great. Overall, a wonderful location and just a short distance to the beach! We loved watching the sun rise and enjoyed the hot tub.

Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for the Flying Pirate 1/2 Marathon. As soon as we arrived we already got sad because we knew we had to leave in 3 days. Wish we could have booked it for longer. Even though we were rushing around and didn't get to spend too much time in the house, it felt like home. So comfortable and so much room. We had 7 people in there and still had plenty of room. Already looking to book it again at the end of the summer. Great place you have and thanks so much for sharing with us :-)

Owner's Response: Thanks Paula- I am glad you decided to stay at Aloha for the 1/2 marathon- that event has gotten very popular. Hopefully you guys can make it back in August. Next year I hope you win the event after relaxing at ALOHA and carbing up the night before! Anthony

Aloha is in a great location at the beach. Mile Post 9 is centrally located between MP1 and MP16. It is also on the high and dry part of the island. When it rains - many areas around MP 1-3 and MP 14-16 suffer lots of standing water. Aloha is positioned right at an awesome beach access. Many people walk by the house to get to the beach. We have heard people say- I wish we were staying there - as they walked past our house!
