About the Property
Cozy, clean, and close to the beach!! Owner operated and flexible dates.
Look no further...The reviews say it all! If you want to be within walking distance to the beach, close to many restaurants and attractions, be in the heart of the Outer Banks, then Tip Sea is the place for you. Freshly painted with lighter colors and updated decor and furniture, it is centrally located at milepost 9.5. Tip Sea is in a great location not only to the beach, but also within walking distance to restaurants, grocery stores, and shopping. It is a straight shot to the beach road, with a choice of two beach accesses. The cottage has three bedrooms, two queen beds, and two twins. There are two full bathrooms, with one connected to the master bedroom. The updated kitchen, which overlooks the family room, has the perfect bar/island which can seat up to five people, with more standing around. After a long day on the beach or an early sunrise, Tip Sea has a wonderful covered front porch to sit and relax, or to make use of the picnic table, maybe for those nights where you want to spread some seafood and watch the sunset. There is also an outdoor basketball hoop as well. There are 3 beach cruisers for your use. There is a basketball hoop for those days anyone needs to show off their Micheal Jordan moves. The cottage is stocked with all your vacation needs. Linens are not included, but can be for an additional charge. Outside there is an enclosed shower, so you can rinse off straight from the beach. There are a few beach chairs, or you may choose to bring your own, or rent some from the rental shop on our street. There is a grill if you want to grab a steak/oysters/shrimp from the Harris Teeter across the street. There are also 3 beach cruisers if you want to go for a bike ride. On those rainy nights, Tip Sea provides a variety of family games, WiFi, DVD player (Redbox at Harris Teeter or choose from my dvds at the cottage), and cable t.v. It doesn't get much better than this. Grab a bag, pack some flops, and Tip Sea will be waiting.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Tip Sea is located in the heart of the Outer Banks, being close to it all. There are several nearby restaurants, grocery stores, shopping, and an easy walk to the beach, while also having an abundance of activities nearby. A rental shop is located on the same street, so activities could be changed daily!
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: My husband and I enjoy going to the Outer Banks a few times a year, whether it is for our yearly summer rental, or a weekend getaway in the off-season. I have grown up coming here over the last 40 years, and a dream of mine was always to have my own beach cottage, and after getting to know the Outer Banks, my husband felt the same. We have 3 boys, and they love visiting as well. We have rented from wonderful owners, and our hope is that our guests say the same and enjoy Tip Sea as much as we have enjoyed places we've rented. We are extremely excited to get our first season started, and we hope that you will join us!
Why the Owner Chose Kill Devil Hills, NC, USA:
Location to the beach, light colors/kitchen updated, in the center of OBX, nearby restaurants, shopping, activities, and attractions. Also, when renting, we always looked for places on quieter streets, yet centered within it all. Tip Sea offers just that. Our number one priority is having Tip Sea be your home away from home, and we like for any renters to leave feeling that way. Because we rent it out ourselves, we are able to immediately answer any questions or give tips on things to do/where to eat in the area. We hope you trust what reviewers have said, and give Tip Sea a try!
