We are passionate about the beach, surf and opportunity to share the experience we love so much with our guests.
The Magical Bungalow is a "Beach Box" style bungalow built in the 1970's and is roughly 1200 square feet of total living space. The place was re-designed in 2016 with an open flow to provide our guests a modern coastal living experience all while maintaining its original bungalow charm. As an older beach bungalow the years of storms, wind and salt air have blessed us with some imperfections and quirks, that's OK though it all adds to the charm and soul of the Magical Bungalow.
The space is ideal for:
• Small active families or groups of friends
• 7 people comfortably, 8 people if ya'll get along well
Our guests love the "Great Room" with its vaulted ceilings that connects to the kitchen and front porch though french doors. On the right day and at the right times, with the windows open, you can feel the refreshing sea breeze pass though the home. Here you will also enjoy the "BigAss" Brand Haiku Fan in the living room that seems to have a hypnotic like effect particularly as the lazy summers evenings drift into night. The master bedroom with its spa-like private bathroom is our favorite room to stay when visiting, inside you can refresh and escape for a while with the extra large 16" rain shower head and hand held wand.
From starting the day rocking on the front porch with a piping hot morning coffee or chilling out and grilling at the bungalow, here’s what our guests say they loved:
• The location – hear the roar of the ocean, just steps from the beach
• Front Porch – morning coffee and evening sunsets!
• Chair Swing, rocking chair, hammocks for everyone on the front porch!
• The Outdoor Shower
• Grilling and a well-supplied kitchen
• Pet Friendly (See about bringing your pet)
• A family friendly and safe neighborhood

**Please note the 4th bedroom is on the ground level, has a separate entrance and is not as upgraded like the upper level main living area. As such, it has some of its original cottage feel. This space does have its own bathroom, TV, stereo, AC Unit and is very private. Please keep in mind this room may not be ideal for everyone but likely more enjoyable for guests that prefer more space, a separate bath and their own private entrance.
Guests have access to the entire home and property. For those, that enjoy clean laundry, like us, we have a quality washer + dryer set up. Most beach gear and amenities are stored in the garage and outdoor shower area.
Interaction with guests
We are available via phone, text and the Airbnb App. We are friendly and may say hello during your stay yet we do respect our guests’ privacy.
We also love sharing our favorite local places to eat and things to do. We even created a guide that our guests have found helpful in planning their OBX adventure, after booking, just ask!
Other things to note
***We do kindly ask that all potential guests read the entire description before requesting to book***
We love our OBX bungalow, it's a great house yet, like most homes it is not perfect and not for everyone. We respect that folks have different preferences and world views. If your looking for a unique place and local experience in a great beach town to relax, spend time with loved ones, chill out, cook and rest your head after the beach then the bungalow checks all the boxes. If you're seeking a perfect, flawless home or are super high maintenance, this is not the place for you.
Bringing your dog?
We love dogs and are happy to have your four legged friends and family members at our bungalows. Just let us know you are bringing your dog and the pet fee is:
