About Christina

We visited the Outer Banks for the first time in 2001 and have been returning every year since! Our children spend endless hours on the beach, while my husband enjoys his time at all of the golf courses nearby. I love the relaxing sounds of the ocean and my favorite spot on the sand to read my summer novel!

Why Christina chose Northern Coast & Outer Banks

Over the years we have stayed in almost every town from Carova to Nags Head, but this house in Kitty Hawk is the perfect spot for a vacation home. From the moment we walked in the front door we felt it was the ideal place for us.

What makes this cottage unique

The house is on a quiet street only steps to the Atlantic Ocean. Our children love to bike ride each morning! But a huge benefit is all the conveniences a renter could want are nearby. Restaurants, bagel & ice cream shops, miniature golf, movie theater, are all within minutes -- some within walking distance. Also close are food stores, pharmacies and shopping for beach needs.

Has everything you need

  • 4 of 5

We had a fabulous time in the Outer Banks!! This house has pretty much everything you will need. Plenty of utensils, etc in the kitchen. There's a Keurig AND a coffee machine. They have plenty of beach chairs to bring to the beach, and also a boogie board and umbrella. TONS of movies to choose from and a LOT of books! The only reason I gave it 4-stars is because it's very out-dated.

Perfect vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

First visit to OBX and couldn't have been happier!! Perfect location to stores , restaurants and within steps of the beach ! Our teenagers enjoyed all the DVDS and games at the house. The place was exceptionally clean and the use of their beach chaires and the bath towels made it super easy to pack and very convenient . We look forward to coming back !

Great place in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic long weekend at the beach house with another couple in late May. The place was well-stocked with everything we needed and even had some great beach chairs and beach toys to borrow. It's a short trot to the beach which makes it easy to go back and forth during the day. The outdoor shower was also a huge plus. Would stay there again!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and everything with the property was well organized (info, check in, cleanup) and the property is in great shape. It has good access to the beach, the TV and Internet worked great, and it is close to pretty much all the major things we wanted to go and see. We really enjoyed it, and our children (ages 4, 9, and 14) had a lot of fun as well.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The location was perfect. Short walk to the beach and Lindbergh was also a nice street for walking. I would definitely rent it again!!! Great weekend!
