Cheryl & Gary Slaymaker purchased this House in 2011

Why Cheryl & Gary Slaymaker chose Kill Devil Hills

We have been visiting the Outer Banks (OBX) for over 15 years, enjoying the friendly people and the ocean. It is a great place to surf fish. Finally made our dream a reality and want to share this great area with you!

What makes this House unique

We loved the large living area in the Crow's Nest, how close it is to the beach. We enjoy the canals filled with fish, frogs and turtles. A visit from a white egret now and again is a nice touch. In the spring the peepers will sing you to sleep. Crow's Nest is in walking distance to a lot of places to eat and a wonderful area to jog or ride your bike. A straight walk to the beach is a great place to surf fish.

                                                  This is our second year staying at the Crow's Nest. The house is in great shape and within walking distance to the beach. Overall, this location is very accommodating and resides in the center of the beach culture, shops, restaurants, and much more. I would definitely love to stay here again next year. Thank you, Cheryl!

                                                  Fantastic Family Beach House!

                                                  Nicki S.Staunton, VA

                                                  My husband and I just returned from a fantastic week at Crows Nest with our 1-year-old daughter who loved her first trip to the beach. We could not have asked for a more child-friendly home - there was a high chair, a tub, children's books, a door at the top of the stairs, and lots of open space for her to crawl around and play. This made our life so much easier on the rainy days! The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was well-stocked with everything we needed to cook several nights. The Oregon Avenue public beach access is an easy walk from the home as is Duck Donuts! We found that the beach was wider with more tidal pools up at the Hayman Blvd public access which was an easy drive up the road. South Memorial Boulevard is a quiet street with friendly neighbors. We would definitely come back! Thanks to Gary and Cheryl for making the whole process very easy and for having such a lovely vacation home.

                                                  Wonderful place to stay!

                                                  Rachel B.Arlington, VA

                                                  We had a great time here at the Crow's Nest. Cheryl was wonderful to work with getting everything sorted out while booking and made herself available if we had any issues while we were there. Fortunately, there were none. Great location, plenty of parking and the amenities were perfect for a family beach week. Place works great for an older group, or even families with small kids. Would definitely be willing to stay here again in the future!

                                                  Our family loves staying here. Cheryl is always easy to deal with and very responsive. Close to beach for us to walk all ages from 5-60!! Kids love the pool table at night! And the big dining table allows everyone room for game nights! Perfect stay every year!

                                                  Everything was very nice and clean at the house, and it was one block back from the ocean, where our friends had a massive house for their wedding, so we were really only using this house for a base camp, and it worked well. Everything was nice, and as advertised. The only complaint we had was there was a musty smell that seemed to soak into everything, overall a minor complaint and we enjoyed our stay.

                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                  Glad you guys had a great time. Not sure what the musty smell could be? We had others to say the same. The air unit is new with newer vent and stuff. All the filters have been changed and the lower level wall have all been gutted and foam insulated. There is a craw space underneath the water heater that is just rock and sand...maybe we will check to see if the wet sand could be the culprit. Thanks for letting us know as we do want the home to be the best possible !! Have a great summer and do come back !
