About Jim & Patty Hamilton, owners

We are perennial OBX vacationers who love to spend our free time in the sand and surf of North Carolina. We have been visiting OBX for decades, first coming as small children with our parents and then as young adults with our friends. Every summer we spend our family vacation here - three generations of family relaxing together playing cards, reading books, swinging and singing on the front porch and making many fond memories. We hope that you will take time to relax and enjoy your family and friends as well, and that you enjoy your time here as much as we have!

Jim And Patty Hamilton

Why Jim & Patty Hamilton, owners chose Kitty Hawk

Family oriented neighborhood and beach with shopping, grocery stores and restaurants only a few miles away.

What makes this cottage unique

Uncrowded beaches. Porch swing on fully covered front deck as well as a hammock under the house for relaxing. Close to beach/ocean view/quiet neighborhood. Enclosed garage to keep your vehicle out of sun and salt air. You're almost there, once you get over the Wright Memorial Bridge - unlike other OBX locations that will take you another hour plus.

All the comforts of home and more...

  • 5 of 5

Our large family came together from far & wide to celebrate a favorite uncle's life before he was laid to rest on October 7th. The last thing I needed was worrying about where I had selected to house some of the east coast cousins. My fears were unfounded as the Hamilton's have thought of everything when it comes to outfitting their guest cottage. All we had to bring were fond memories & stories along with some of our favorite traditional family foods. The well appointed kitchen made cooking a labor of love. Comfy surroundings made for cozy dinner conversations with family we hadn't seen in more than 30 years.

We enjoyed our morning coffee on the back deck along with the sight & sound of the ocean just a block away. What a relaxing way to ease into each day!

Lunchtime found us swinging lazily on any one of the 3 covered areas as the breeze took the edge off the unexpected heat of the October weekend.

After a walk on the beach later in the afternoon, we each found a quiet spot to reflect, read or catch up with a family member.

We could not have asked for anything more. Mr. Hamilton called to check on us and to see if we needed anything, given the circumstances of our get-together. The thoughtfulness and compassion of the Hamilton's was much appreciated by us all. Staying at The Hamilton House allowed us make new memories and plans for a family reunion next October.

We can't wait!

Clean and well within walking distance of the beach.

  • 5 of 5

The house was efficient and comfortable for our group of 6 (4 adults and 2 young children). We all loved the outdoor shower along with the hammock under the house. The walk to the beach was quick and easy. First time we have been to the Outerbanks and hopefully we will be back next year.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Jim and Patty's place. Everything we needed was there. The kids enjoyed playing the well-stocked board games on the day that it rained. Quick walk to the beach. Beach chairs and bikes were there for us to use. We loved just sitting on the porch in the evening having dinner.

Lovely and well maintained beach house.

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5, including 3 boys age range 16-21, thoroughly enjoyed our stay at "The Hamilton". The house was clean, well maintained and was in a nice location with views of the ocean from the back deck. The beach was just a short walk through the path described in the listing. We loved having use of a ping pong table, and there were beach toys, boogie boards and bicycles as well. Extras in the kitchen like coffee filters and condiments were appreciated. The outdoor shower and foot wash were great for cleaning up after the beach. We arrived late in the evening and it was nice that there was toilet paper and hand soap in both of the bathrooms, and paper towels in the kitchen. The owners were very nice and pleasant to work with. We would definitely stay here again should we decided to go back to the Outer Banks.
