About the property

Great Location, sleeps 10, FlatTV in all rooms, Pay Pal, CreditCard/ Check Taken

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. In 2017 we replaced the living room furniture.

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 Kill Devil Hills

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!

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

The property is even better than the pictures show (more updated linens, etc.). The house was spacious enough that during rainy mornings we were comfortable, and it is close enough to the beach that once the clouds cleared we gathered the kids (5 kids, 5 and under!) and walked there in 3 minutes! This is a great space for family quality time, and it is close to restaurants for some time away from the kids too! Great property owner, very responsive and great with communication- VERY easy to work with! Thanks for a great week!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at the beach! House was great and well stocked, perfect location, and the owner went out of his way to be helpful. I pretty much lived in the amazing hammock! Highly recommended!

Wonderful beach house

  • 5 of 5

Location could not have been better! We had a small mishap on the first day but the owner took care of the issue right away. Walk to the beach was easy and short. Would highly recommend to anyone, especially families with small children.

Great location, a little outdated

  • 3 of 5

So overall, this house met our needs. It is in a fantastic location (walking distance to CVS, a bar next door, pizza place across the street, etc). The hot tub is super nice and very comfortable, and was a really nice extra. The inside of the house is pretty outdated, and we were struggling in the kitchen as there are very few supplies. No viable coffee mugs, a few plates, and hardly any functioning pots/ pans. If you plan on cooking, you will want to bring your own pots and pans, etc. The bedrooms were ok, but I would suggest bringing your own linens rather than paying $50 for old towels and sheets that have clearly been used for years. The comforters/ bed spreads also were very used. I would also agree with the other reviews that it is really loud outside in the early mornings. Sleeping in is difficult, but that just translates to more time on the beach! Other than those things, which are all very "first world problems," we loved our stay. The outside shower and huge decks are awesome. Anthony is great to work with and was quick to respond to our inquires. It is clear he wants his guests to be comfortable. We would definitely stay there again, we would just know to bring more things with us next time!

Owner's Response: Aloha Kendall- Thanks to your review we discovered our cleaning crew were not using sheets/Linens and towels. that we had provided. That has been corrected. Coffee mugs, plates and pots/pans will be restocked. Unfortunately those things tend to disappear over time. Glad you had a good time. See you next time! Aloha Anthony

Excellent Place Walking Distance to Beach

  • 5 of 5

Aloha is located walking distance to the beach. We really enjoyed our stay. House is well equipped and the bedrooms are good size. The owner Anthony was very helpful and quickly responded to any of our inquiries. We really enjoyed the Hot Tub. Kids enjoyed the downstairs room playing Wii. There are two restaurants at walking distance from the house which are good as well.

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!
