About the Property
2 bedroom Cottage, Shared Pool, WiFi, Satellite TV, Full Kitchen
Our beach house is less than a block to the beach!
Please click email/contact owner and remind us of any discount you are looking at, as it may not be reflected in the automatic pricing.
If you text Sally at 240-253-3380 or Jeff at 240-370-7372, one of us will call you back as soon as we can -- but please, no calls between 9 pm and 8:00 am Eastern US time. If you call, and we are not available to answer, a text to both of us including your name, dates and property requested (VB or KH) will ensure the quickest response possible, as we are not able to understand some of the voice mail messages we get.
There is a $50 discount for older couples and military on any Saturday to Saturday week that is not already on sale!
Our charming cottage now has satellite TV, new queen beds, floor, decor & Wi-Fi. Summer rentals are for full weeks only, Saturday to Saturday, unless you see a smaller space in my calendar. Please, no smoking or pets.
Full week rentals only in summer, Saturday to Saturday, to make sure there are no overlaps!
Our home accommodates 4 - 5 people comfortably; 6 would be too many.
We have one full Bathroom and two Bedrooms with queen beds.
Check In: 4 PM - early the next day. May be ready at 3; please text if you're going to be early.
We have 2 queen bedrooms and a fold-out sofa in the living room, 1 bathroom, a full kitchen, newly updated. We don't have a washer/dryer as a flood washed them out, but we have what I call my "Solar Dryer" -- aka clothes line at the side of the house.
Our beach cottage is comfortable and cheery. A home within earshot of the ocean 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
We put in a new WiFi system 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 in Nags Head 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 11 houses, just across the street from the beach road and on warm summer days usually a few families share the pool. You can reach the pool in about 14 seconds, and the beach/ocean in about a minute.
Our area is much less busy and crowded than Nags Head in the summer, but you can get 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 relatively small 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.
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 others. Thanks, and have a wonderful time at the beach!
Checkout time is 10AM - Checkin is officially 4 pm, but text to see if house is ready at 3.
Security/Damage Deposit of $400 is quickly refunded once I have made sure there is no damage.
Satellite TV and Internet service
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 text me at 240-253-3380 or email me on this site to let me know, and I will try to make the adjustment for you.
Our home is on the first floor, with just 3 steps to the entrance. It has a 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 and cable TV with HBO, 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.
Keywords: Swimming Surfing, Sunning, Beach, Ocean Surf Shopping souvenirs sunbathing relaxing beach fine dining seafood Atlantic Ocean cottage 2 bedrooms full kitchen a/c WiFi TV.
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. Our air conditioning is cool and comfortable in the summer months. WiFi has recently been added.
A popular surfing area is just a couple of blocks away.
We have an ocean view from the pool, about 12 - 14 steps away from the house, and we can see the ocean from right in front of the house. We usually have great beach weather through most of October and sometimes into November, which is when the fishing is especially great!
Beach access is very convenient, with swimming, surfing, sunbathing and great fishing only a short walk away, and a pool shared by the Sea Retreat homes, open from the weekend before Memorial Day to the weekend 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 April.
Sorry, we can't take pets.

- 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....moreless

Near the Wright Brothers Memorial - See where the first powered flight took place! 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.
Year Purchased: 1993
About the owner: I love to be so close to the beach - It's great to be just steps from the ocean! My other favorite hobby is writing, and I am presently writing stories about the ocean and dolphins, etc. so you may find me way out in the water making friends with the dolphins!
Why the Owner Chose Sea Retreat (Kitty Hawk, NC, USA):
It's wonderful to live less than a block from the beach and the ocean! I used to look forward to my yearly beach trips and now can jump in the ocean quite often. I go out early to watch the most gorgeous sunrises, and in the early evening to see the dolphins play. Our area in Kitty Hawk is so convenient to almost everything you might need or want -- swimming, sunning, surfing, hang gliding, shopping, restaurants, post office, water sports, sightseeing, and even world-class golf. Our smaller house is ideal for a couple or small family, without the expense of one of the huge homes.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Very convenient to almost everything and the Outer Banks beaches are fantastic, with wide, clean sands! Wind and waves are perfect for swimming, sunning, surfing, parasailing, kayaking and hang gliding on Jockey's Ridge. It's also exciting to visit the Wright Brothers Memorial and learn about the first-ever airplane trips!
