About Kevin Bupp

We currently live in a small town outside of Harrisburg, PA. We raised our three children in this area and have vacationed on the Outer Banks for over 20 years. We were attracted to the North Carolina beaches because of the scenic beauty, family friendly environment, clean beaches and light crowds.

Kevin Bupp purchased this house in 1997

Why Kevin Bupp chose Whalehead Beach

We have vacationed on the Outer Banks for over 20 years. After staying in several locations prior to purchasing our home we selected Whalehead because of the large private lots. Due to the expensive land acquisition costs most communities have very small lot sizes and the homes are very close to each other. In Whalehead most losts are approximately 1/2 acre in size. This provides more spacious accommodations and fewer people crowding the beaches.

What makes this house unique

Clean beaches, scenic views, family friendly environment and non-crowded beaches. Close to the historic lighthouse. Enjoy all the amenities the ocean and the sound offer - surfing, beach combing, walks, wild horse watching, driving on the beach, kayaking, fishing and much, much more.

Beautiful and comfortable.

Our group of 6 adults and two children had a wonderful time at Robyn's Nest. The house is roomy and well equipped and it was an easy walk to the beach.

Great week spent wtih family!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week at Robyn's Nest very much. The house was a very nice size for two families with a total of 8 people. We did not use one bedroom at all as all of the kids opted to stay in the bunk room. The living space met our needs, and we enjoyed having the screened in porch. The perch is also very nice to view stars. We did not use the hot tub or the pool much, but it was nice to have for the kids. The outdoor shower was also a big bonus to help get sand off of the kids post beach. The walk to the beach is not too far, and the kids did well with it. The beach was perfect! The kitchen is well stocked (much more so than many other rentals we have experienced) and we cooked most meals in. We had a few plumbing issues, but Mr. Bupp was responsive and had repair folks out quickly. It did not affect our stay. We used a babysitter service recommended by Mr. Bupp and it worked out well. Mr. Bupp was very helpful in giving guidance before the trip, and was available any time needed when we were there. We appreciated that greatly.

Back again

  • 5 of 5

Last year I got my husband to come on vacation for the first time in 24 years, He is 73 years old and works a full time job. We enjoyed ourselves so much and he was so relaxed that the thought of coming back again this year is what got him thorough. We are grateful for your hospitality. Thank you very much.
