Overview

About the property

Studio, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Less than 1 mile from the ocean, and only two blocks to a beautiful sunset on the sound, this cozy getaway is nestled among live oaks in the heart of the Outer Banks. Relax on the patio or in the hot tub after a day of beaching or shopping, or dine 'al fresco' under lights strung through a tree in the backyard. Dozens of restaurants within 10 miles, grocery store within one mile and shops as well. Lovingly furnished with sturdy antiques and modern conveniences, it's perfect for two. Less expensive than a motel and more private, with just enough kitchen to prepare a little supper and lots of room to unpack and relax.

But let's please be clear. This is the ground floor apartment in our home and we live and work upstairs, so you will be probably notice that someone is sharing the house. While the Studio is a separate space in the house, it is just a HOUSE, with no special soundproofing between the walls or floors. We are happy to open this space for guests, but we do live here and our children and parents visit occasionally, so if you require absolute quiet with zero sounds of others in the house, this isn't the spot for you. That said, we will be very thoughtful of you being downstairs, and we hope you'll be the same when it comes to loud noises/music, especially late at night.

Linens and cleaning fees are included. Small pets will be considered for an additional fee.

About Dawn Church

I'm the curator and publisher of website called Hidden Outer Banks and I live upstairs with my fiance and cat Zoey. I enjoy working with non-profit organizations, volunteering and staying connected to this community that I love.

Dawn Church purchased this studio in 2002

Why Dawn Church chose Northern Coast & Outer Banks

I fell in love with the obx early on-- I was wearing diapers the first time my family stayed on Hatteras Island! Summer vacations turned into a lifelong love affair and I moved here almost 30 years ago. I can't imagine living anywhere else.

What makes this studio unique

We love our house because its located right in the middle of Kill Devil Hills, which is smack in the middle of the Outer Banks. So close to shopping, restaurants and beaches, yet set back in a quiet neighborhood, away from the hustle and bustle. If you bring bikes you can easily pedal to the beach, Wright Memorial and local coffee shops. Day trips north to Duck and Corolla are totally do-able, and southern trips to check out Hatteras and Ocracoke Islands are not to be missed.

Decent but noisy.

  • 3 of 5

Is a great location for getting to everything. The room was nice and orderly. The owner was very friendly and accommodating. The house is very small though, and since the rental was on the bottom floor, all the noise from above would travel through the floor, resulting in a very bumpy and very frequent bumping sounds.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your nice comments and feedback. While the Studio is more private and quiet than a hotel, it is still just part of a house, so there will always be a little noise. I did have three visitors the weekend you were here, two of which were children, so I do apologize for it being noisier than usual!

Small, cozy, and clean

  • 4 of 5

Dawn's "Studio Sea" is a small, cozy unit on the ground floor of her house in Kill Devil Hills. While not on the ocean with a view, this central location was great for driving north and south to see the major sights of The Outer Banks. Making the reservations with Dawn was easy and she provided helpful information prior to our arrival. During our stay, Dawn was friendly and respected our privacy while being available to help us with anything needed. The studio space is rather small for two people (with only a hotel room type refrig and bed against the wall) for more than a few days but there is an outside patio that can be used if the weather and bugs are not too bad. I especially appreciated being able to use the washer/dryer. Thank you, Dawn!

A nice, squared away studio with modern style. Had a great, relaxing week here. Very friendly yet mindful of your privacy and space.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were delighted to find such a cozy, private place to stay on our honeymoon. Studio Sea was clean and homey, a perfect place to come back to after being out and about. We enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub after a a day at the beach. Dawn was very friendly and helpful, and gave us some great restaurant ideas. We would definitely come back if we visit the Outer Banks again!

The Studio Sea was a great place to stay to explore OBX

  • 5 of 5

Studio Sea was a great little place to stay in OBX. It was in a nice neighborhood with easy access to everything. The kitchen area and the grill were more than enough to be able to prepare meals and not having to eat out for every meal. The bed was very comfy and it was a very peaceful place to have a restful time. Thank you Dawn for your great hospitality, we would love to come back again.
