Lovely, comfortable beach house is just a short block to the beach in beautiful Kitty Hawk in the Outer Banks. Pool is literally just steps away (open from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend or a few days after. Wonderful for Swimming, Surfing, Suntanning, Body-boarding, Fishing, Shopping and Sightseeing! We now have satellite TV, Wi-Fi, new queen beds, brighter colors, decor & upgraded electricity. I have not changed the prices on the website since this price is only good for 2 days; please contact me and I will change it on your quote. We have two Bedrooms with Queen beds and one full bathroom. Summer rentals are for full weeks only, Saturday to Saturday, unless you see an incomplete week in my calendar. Please, no smoking or pets. In order for me to process any sale price, you need to click on "Email Owner" or "Contact Owner" and send me a note rather than making a reservation request. We are renting full weeks, Saturday to Saturday only, during the summer. If an exception is made (which hardly ever happens,) the rate will not be the weekly rate prorated, but will be higher unless someone has rented more than a week and there is a partial week showing on the calendar. If you text Sally or Jeff, one of us will call you back as soon as we can -- but please, no calls between 9 pm and 9:00 am Eastern US time. Please no calls or text between 9:30 pm and 8:00 am. There is a $50 discount for older couples and military on any Saturday to Saturday week that is not already on discounted! Our home accommodates 4 - 5 people comfortably; 6 is too many (sorry, even if one is a baby). Check In: 4 PM to early the next day. Our home may be ready at 3 pm, so please let me know if you're going to be early and I will provide you with the new door code if it is -- when you are about an hour away, about the time you enter North Carolina, if you are coming from the north. We have 2 queen bedrooms and a fold-out sofa in the living room, 1 bathroom, a full kitchen, newly updated. Our beach cottage is comfortable and cheery. A home so close to the ocean that you can hear the waves is so restful after a day sunning, swimming, surfing, shopping, or sightseeing, and the beds are really comfortable new queen beds as of late May or early June last year. Quiet nights in fall, with super swimming, surfing, sunning, shopping, sightseeing and dining! We have satellite TV, and a new WiFi system put in last summer. There are many, many wonderful restaurants for seafood or almost anything your heart may desire. Shopping is great too, from an Outlet Mall to Walmart, K-Mart & Dollar Tree, and several grocery stores, too, plus lots and lots of specialty shops! I've put in a combination lock which our cleaning person changes after cleaning, so I'll give you the combination at check in time. We are a little community of about 10 homes, just across the street from the beach road and on warm summer days usually a few families share the pool. You can walk to the pool in about 10 seconds, and the beach/ocean in a minute or less. Our area is much less busy and crowded than Nags Head in the summer, but you can drive there in just a few minutes for any activities you would like to participate in. Even closer than Nags Head is Kill Devil Hills, where you can visit the Wright Brothers Memorial to discover the Wright Brothers' first flights. We have ample parking for 2 cars or a mini van. We can't take trailers, large trucks or boats in front of our home (on our small driveway that I used to call the 2nd part of East Balchen), but you can park those on the main part of East Balchen, as long as you don't block anyone's access or the community dumpster. House Rules: Absolutely No Smoking or Pets No partying (except a small family birthday party). Check-in time is 4 PM to early the next day. Sometimes a 3 pm check in is available; if you ask me, I will consult my cleaning lady. The most important rules are that smoking and pets are strictly forbidden. Aside from that, please just treat my home as you would like me to treat yours. I would really appreciate it if you leave it in good condition and fairly neat -- or at least toss all your trash in the dumpster. I leave a little coffee and other amenities for guests, but can't be there myself every time to make sure it's kept up, so please use what you need and leave the rest for the next family. Thanks, and have a wonderful time at the beach! Checkout time is 10AM - Check-in is officially 4 pm, but text to see if house is ready at 3 pm. Security/Damage Deposit of $400 quickly refunded once I have made sure there is no damage. Amenities Include: Satellite TV Internet service Air conditioning Ceiling fans Full Kitchen Smoke Detector Fire Extinguisher Shampoo, conditioner and lotions Coffee, creamer and sugar No pets, no smoking, no exceptions. Must rent full week Saturday to Saturday from May to September, unless there is a space in my calendar that is less than one week. This usually happens when someone requests more than a week. If you see a partial week free, and the system won't let you book it, please contact me on this site to let me know, and I will try to make the adjustment for you. Our first floor home has just 3 steps to the entrance. Full kitchen with everything you need. Linens (towels/washcloths/sheets) provided, but please bring beach towels. We have Wi-Fi available, dedicated parking space for 1-2 cars (trailers and boats must park on main road). In answer to many questions, sorry, we do not have a balcony and we do have a small grill for barbecuing. We cannot take your small, quiet or even hypoallergenic pet. We do have Internet, satellite TV, and air-conditioning. We are less than a block to the beach, about a one to two minute walk, and it takes me fourteen seconds to walk to the pool, which is open Memorial Day weekend to the weekend after Labor Day. Pets and smoking are NOT allowed - no exceptions! Our home has everything you need: full kitchen, linens, towels, dishes, etc. Remember to bring your sunscreen and toothbrush -- and a beach towel and swimsuit when weather is warm! We had brand new queen-size beds put in last spring, and a new sofa this spring. Payment must be made in full and deposited BEFORE arrival; I cannot accept payment on arrival. Weeks must be Saturday - Saturday for any discounts. $400 security/damage deposit will be refunded quickly if it is not needed for repair or replacement of anything damaged or missing. Please don't ask for partial weeks in the summer, unless you see them offered. It would be a huge problem to have your reservation overlap with somebody else's, so I am looking for people to book Saturday to Saturday weeks. If you're looking for availability I don't have in Kitty Hawk, try my Virginia Beach home, property 3469983, while we still have some time left. It's also 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, and less than a block from the beach with similar pricing The week is marked reserved only when it is fully paid, so reserving as soon as possible is better.

The pool, open Memorial weekend to the weekend after Labor Day, is just steps away, and the ocean in less than 1 short block from our home. Sorry, I can't discount rentals of 5 days or less. Our charming home was newly painted and remodeled last spring and summer, with a lovely periwinkle color and brighter, more modern decor. Cool and comfortable a-c in summer months; WiFi recently added. Popular surfing area just a few blocks away. Ocean view from pool, about 15 steps from house. Great beach weather through most of October and sometimes into November, which is when the fishing is especially great! Beach access very convenient - swimming, surfing, sunbathing and great fishing only a short walk away. Pool shared by the Sea Retreat homes, open from weekend before Memorial Day until after Labor Day. There are plenty of places for shopping and lots of great restaurants nearby, some within walking distance, as is the Post Office, with a myriad of other enjoyable activities available within a short drive or bike ride. Don't miss seeing the Wright Brothers monument, commemorating the first airplane flight! LINENS PROVIDED. We have bath towels, hand towels, wash cloths, sheets and pillowcases, but please bring your own beach towels. SORRY -- NO PETS, NO SMOKING, NO EXCEPTIONS $1100 monthly rent November to April includes all utilities, internet and satellite TV. Property reverts to weekly rentals in Apri

                                                              Notes

                                                                • There is a great surfing spot just a few blocks south of our beach access, and fishing early mornings and evenings all year round! We do not have space for a boat or trailer on our little part of the road - it would block our neighbors for coming in. You may park these on East Balchen, as long as you don't block anyone else's driveway or entrance.

                                                                  Spent a wonderful week here. Quick walk to the beach and the pool was a great option when the waves got rough! Enjoyed the satellite TV on a couple of rainy nights and there's a selection of books too ( I read two!). The kitchen is well equipped and we enjoyed the barstools at the counter. Both bedrooms have ceiling fans and window A.C. units (the cover rattles a little but became like "white noise") - slept well! Plenty of towels and having bed linens provided too - super perk! Big challenge was sand; the outdoor shower at the pool wasn't working and the house doesn't have a hose available outside. Between the lack of way to get rid of sand and the rattling AC is why I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars. Great place to stay for a small family or 2 couples!

                                                                  Sally is a very attentive host, promptly offered assistance with a few minor things upon our arrival and made sure we are satisfied with everything. We had a great time. A minute walk to the beach, community pool, and short driving distance from all the attractions in OBX. What more can you ask. As far as value, I could not find a better deal for three guests. Thank you Sally, we may come back next Summer!

                                                                  Small, quaint, and CLOSE to the beach! (4 1/2 Stars)

                                                                  The little lavender house near the beach was perfect for this dad and his 9 year old. It's well kept, and the open floor plan makes it feel quite spacious for its size. Very comfortable. There's not a lot of extras, so bring your own or rent beach chairs, beach towels, umbrellas, etc (but that's fairly well disclosed in the descriptions). The good news is the house is so close to the beach, you can be there in 5 minutes! Which also means, you can run home for snacks or extra supplies/beach gear quite conveniently. The owner was very quick to respond to any questions or problems. We texted her because we were running early, and she double checked that the house was ready and gave us the code to get in before actual check in time. We were in the ocean 30 minutes before the 4:00pm check in! I had to take off a whole star because there's no half stars for just a couple picky things that I felt would have improved the experience: first there was no outdoor shower or hose to rinse off sand at the house. There's one at the shared pool, but it was out of service (according to the neighbors). Having even a hose at the house for our feet would have cut down on the daily sweepings to keep up with all of the tracked-in sand. We never did use the Sea Retreat shared pool, so I can't comment, but it looked nice and well maintained. The other super picky complaint, and not necessarily the owner's fault, was the lack of kitchen supplies like foil, matches, or condiments...again not something required, but oh so handy when they are there. I made sure to leave extra TP, paper towels, ketchup, mustard, foil, and sandwich bags for the next guest. I guess that's more of a thing I expect a good guest to do. Anyway, this house was about as perfect for our trip as I could have imagined. It's close to stores, restaurants, and of course the beach. The cozy size was suitable for the 2 of us, but it would probably be nice for a family of 4. The kitchen is separated from the living room by a counter with stools, so no one need be left out of a movie, board game, or conversation while they are fixing meals. The beds were comfortable and they had plenty of pillows. The A/Cs combined with fans kept the temps in the comfort range. I'd definitely rent again.

                                                                  We had a great time in the house this year. Sally was very responsive when we texted her for anything. It is fantastic to have a place that already stocks linens and towels and beds are made. One less thing to pack. It is a cute small house depending on the number of people one has. The house has all the basic necessities. It is really just about 1 block to the beach. We would definitely stay there again.

The house is the perfect size for what you need. Fully stocked kitchen supplies, linens and very clean! Super close to the beach and pool which was almost always empty except us which was lovely. Neighbors were very friendly as well. Looking forward to our next trip!

Day trips to Cape Hatteras, and the east coast's tallest lighthouse, still shining and built in 1870 - from there you can take your car across on a free ferry to Ocracoke Island where time has practically stood still! Another day trip could take you to the historic triangle of Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown, to see how people lived in the early days of our nation -- and even earlier times. We have great shopping, sailing, surfing, swimming and sunning, indoor games galore, miniature golf -- almost everything you could think of, you can find on the Outer Banks. Visit Jockey's Ridge in nearby Nags Head, the tallest active sand dune system in the eastern United States and the most visited park within the NC park system - A great place to learn hang-gliding, or just for climbing and flying a kite. Kitty Hawk Kites is one of the places that has everything you need to enjoy Jockey's Ridge and other exciting activities in the area.
