About Susan & Jeff Rowland

For over 50 years our family has vacationed in Kitty Hawk. We decided we needed a place of our own to get everyone together if only a couple times a year. We hope you will make some great memories as well at Rowland with the Tide!

Why Susan & Jeff Rowland chose Northern Coast & Outer Banks

Our property is a family friendly property with great views and access to the beach. You can lay in bed and listen to the ocean crash along the shore. We try to add the extra family friendly amenities that you don't get from rental companies. This is the only beach house we own, and we give it our full attention!

What makes this cottage unique

For your entire stay you will be right at the Ocean, just walk across the street and you are on the beach. You can see the beach from your screened porch. Watch and hear the waves crash on the shore. Bring the entire family and relax! You will be ready to book your next vacation before you ever leave! Come, relax and enjoy life at the Oceanfront!

Charming cottage perfect for family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I feel compelled to write a thorough review, because we had such a fantastic vacation!

Our travel group was 4 adults, one 11 month old child, and a 3 year old Golden.

First of all, as the parent of a small child, I was worried about traveling for the first time with our son and staying in a place unfamiliar from home with other people and a dog and not knowing the layout of the house. It was actually perfect for us-- we put our son in the back bunk room in the Pack-N-Play provided by Jeff & Susan (thank you!) situated in the corner with a sound machine. He slept peacefully through all of our activity in the home. I will say I am glad we brought blackout curtains with us, though (we used cheap/disposable), because the room was bright. There was a wicker rocker in our bedroom that I moved into the bunk room in order for nursing/winding down for bed time.

We spent the majority of our time on the screened in porch which was AMAZING. We even stayed out there through rain and thunderstorms. It was our favorite feature of the home. Also, it was on the complete opposite side of the house from our son, so we didn't have to worry about being quiet after sleeping hours for him. Plenty of seating for a larger crowd.

We took a chance and didn't bring any toys with us and the cottage had more than enough toys for our son for inside the house and for on the beach. Also great selection of books to read him at bedtime (lots of Dr. Seuss!).

The view of the beach is amazing. We barely even noticed the row of houses between us and the beach. In fact, we liked that we had that small separation between us and people on the beach, because we occasionally felt we were in people's "back yard" on the sand behind their houses.

The outside hose and shower were great for keeping sand out of the house. Also, we kept the picnic table that was outside under the car port so we had outdoor/picnic seating but still plenty of privacy.

Long clothesline under the carport was great for letting things air dry without fear of them blowing away.

The beds and couches were SO comfy!

It was a tight squeeze at the kitchen table, but we made it work and it didn't ruin our stay or experience.

Walking distance to Duck Donuts, Arts Place, and Rundown Cafe a major plus!

Overall, we had such a wonderful time and we are definitely coming back. We hope to be able to stay at RWTT and we thank Jeff & Susan for making our first visit to OBX a comfortable one, especially with our kiddo!

Very clean and well kept. Super comfy furniture. 3 full size sofa's! The front screened in porch is all we needed! Views were spectacular and being just steps away from the ocean is a dream. Our annual girls weekend has a new home away from home! Thank you!

Great property, Easy Communication, would highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

My family had been planning a special weekend getaway for our parents anniversary and our first choice weekend was unfortunately cancelled due to an impending hurricane. Susan and Jeff were so kind to allow us to reschedule for a later (sunnier) weekend. Our stay was wonderful! House is at a great location, just across the road to the beach, close to many yummy OBX restaurants and activities. They were so easy to communicate with and we enjoyed their clean and furnished beach house. Screened in porch and top deck are an added bonus!! Would definitely stay here again if we find ourselves in Kitty Hawk!

Owner's Response: Good Afternoon Kelly, Thanks for that glowing review, we really appreciate it. Thanks also for the kind words about your ease of communication with us. We're so glad that you finally got a beautiful weekend with your family down on the Outer Banks. We agree with you on the location, you can walk to some very convenient stores & restaurants. The screened in porch and sun deck are 2 of our favorite hangouts as well. But you really can't beat being so close to the beach!!! We would love to host y'all again for your next adventure to the Outer Banks! Thanks for leaving the cottage in such nice shape. Thanks AGAIN, Susan & Jeff

Great location for a dog friendly vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location and the view from the cottage. There is a wonderful upper deck to watch the ocean and the sunsets at night. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. The cottage allows dogs which was a real plus. Our dog loved the screened in porch where she stayed! The house was very clean and in good order. We hope to go back!

Great space with plenty of room and amazing views

  • 4 of 5

We had a great 4 days at Rowland with the Tide. House had everything we needed to cook, plenty of room to sleep adults and kids, and a great common area to gather. Easy beach access and beautiful views from both the porch and the rooftop deck. Thank you for hosting us ;-)

Owner's Response: Good Morning Kristen, Thanks for that glowing review. We're so glad that y'all enjoyed your stay with us! We really like the layout of the cottage, which we believe promotes family togetherness. You're right, you can't beat the views from the sun deck and screened in porch. Hopefully, y'all were able to catch one of the amazing sunrises from those vantage points. We're looking forward to hosting y'all again!!! Thanks, Susan & Jeff

Fantastic Location! Fantastic Views! Great for Family -friendly get aways and memory-making!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just made some great memories at Rowland With The Tide! Our crew consisted of two teenagers and a 5 year old labrador. This house could easily accommodate younger children as well.

The home was clean and well furnished. Beach access was just across the street. Bike rentals two blocks away. Grocery stores and commerce a 5 minute drive.

Our favorite feature of the home was the observation deck on top with awesome views of the ocean. We all gravitated up there several times a day.

For adventures beyond the beach, we ventured on outings of 30 minute drive or less to the Currituck Light House, the Manteo waterfront and Roanoake Lost colony NHP, Nags Head Nature Preserve, putt-putt golf, local shops and restaurants. Plenty to do for all ages!

Owner's Response: Good Morning Matt, Wow, thanks for that AWESOME review! We're so glad y'all had a great time at Rowland With The Tide. You accomplished exactly what we hope for all of our guest, wonderful family memories!! You're absolutely right, there is so much to do down on the Outer Banks! Our family has been going down there for 25 years and we still haven't done it all. The sun deck overlooking the Atlantic Ocean is one of our favorite places to hang out as well. We're looking forward to hosting y'all on your next adventure down on the Outer Banks!!! Thanks Again, Susan & Jeff
