Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family of 7 stayed for a week in July of 2017 at Gracie Bell's SeaShell and we had a wonderful time. I would give the property and the owners 5 stars. Anita was very responsive to my questions about travel, shopping, and attractions. All the correspondence was concise and timely. The property was exactly as presented. The beds were comfortable and the property was clean. Our family did more cooking in than eating out (midwesterners taking full advantage of all the fresh seafood) and found the kitchen to be well stocked with a nice variety of pots, pans and dishes. The beach was never crowded we truly felt it was our own little section of the beach. We would definitely return to this property in the event we were in the Outer Banks again.

Wonderful little beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at Gracie Bell's Seashell. It was very clean and functional and it was great walking right out the back door down to the ocean. The hot tub was absolutely wonderful to soak in. The owner Anita was also extremely wonderful and kind. I was diagnosed with cancer just before our scheduled vacation. I discussed my situation with Anita because we thought we might have to cancel our trip. She was so kind and understanding and encouraging to me. We didnt have to cancel the trip, thank goodness because it was exactly the getaway i needed. I can't say enough nice things about gracie bell's seashell or the owners. If we go back to kittyhawk again in the future i will definitely rent gracie bell's seashell again!

Gracie Bell's Seashell is an adorable, cozy, beachfront cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time that we've done VBRO, and honestly, we weren't sure what to expect. Anita was awesome!! Very friendly, easy to communicate with, and super helpful! (Thanks Anita, for letting us back in after we stupidly locked ourselves out!!) The house and property was very clean, and very well maintained. The house is so adorable inside and very roomy! And the view....amazing, it was so hard to leave! We will definitely be a repeat costumer!! Thanks for a great week Anita!

AWESOME oceanfront cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved Gracie Bell's Seashell! Such a cute & cozy cottage with beautiful ocean views!! There are 2 bedrooms & a bath on both sides of the house with living/kitchen area in the middle - perfect for 2 families and/or in-laws. The hot tub on the deck is a great addition...enjoy relaxing and watching the ocean during the day OR listening to the surf and looking at the stars at night :) The owners are very friendly and wonderful with communication (thank you, Anita!). We will definitely stay here again, can't wait to go back!

Perfect ocean front cottage

  • 5 of 5

Gracie Bells Seashell Cottage is the perfect cottage for a beach getaway. The house is right on the ocean and has a hot tub on the deck which was the main reason we decided to book. The week we visited it was very cold (45-53) and windy (15-30 mph) so we took advantage of the hot tub every night. Every morning we watched the sunrise from the deck before our girls were up. The booking process was very smooth and any questions we had were answered promptly by the owners. The bedrooms are on the smaller side but each has plenty of storage in the closets, dressers and nightstands so that you can unpack. The kitchen is fully stocked and the ocean front dining table was our favorite place to be when we were inside the cottage. We took advantage of the washer and dryer almost everyday. We knew the linens were not included in the rental, but we did not realize that included bathroom rugs, bathroom hand drying towels or kitchen towels. All of this is obvious, but we were too excited for our vacation to think that far ahead. We ordered sheets from a local company before our trip and then picked up extra towels for the bathrooms, etc from Wal-mart. The driveway is short with very thick sand so if you don't have all-wheel drive or 4x4 you may have have trouble. We would stay here again in a heartbeat! I think my family asked everyday if we could just move in.

Didn't want to leave...

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect week to celebrate our Moms 70th birthday! Anita was so responsive and helped getting us started with a few places to check out. The house was perfect for 3 adults and 2 kids. Having the 2 beds and bath on each side of the house was such a great set up! We are already working on booking for next year and possibly another one at the end of this season! This is the perfect location,perfect house, wonderful owners! We're sad to be back home. Thanks for an amazing week Anita!
