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!

Thoroughly enjoyed waking up to the sunrise, each day, through my bedrooms glass doors!!

Cottage had everything we could have possibly needed and we spent lots of time on the screened in porch. We also enjoyed bike riding to places nearby. Overall, an awesome week!!!

We had the best time! Susan and Jeff were wonderful to work with. The beach is just a few steps away and very beautiful! We were very comfortable in the cottage and LOVED sitting on the screened porch every evening before bed. We will definitely return to Rowland with the Tide! I highly recommend staying there!!

Fabulous Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Fun from start to finish!! This cottage has everything! The location was perfect with beach access, ocean views and anything you would need nearby. The cottage was spacious and clean. We used every space; the sundeck upstairs (great views), the screened in porch and we especially loved the covered area down below where we would have snacks and cook dinner while the kids played corn hole. There were plenty of toys, chairs and umbrellas to enjoy the beach where we so MANY dolphin! We also went to the opening day of H2OBX Water Park where we spent the entire day enjoying the slides, rides and lazy river. We hope to be back soon!!

It was nice to know that you got to be there for the opening of H2OBX water park, we can't wait to go. That'll be a nice option if the red flags are up on the beach. Just let us know when you're ready for that next trip. Thanks Again, Susan & Jeff

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!

Owner's Response: Good Morning Lynn, Sorry to be so long getting back to you, we were enjoying some much needed family time at Rowland With The Tide for the Father's Day Weekend. A HUGE THANK YOU for that outstanding review!!! We are so glad that your stay with us was an enjoyable one and really appreciate all your wonderful insights that you shared about, what we believe is, the perfect place for families to make special lifetime memories. We love the layout of the cottage and its location, not only in close proximity to the beach, but also within a short walking distance to some good restaurants and stores. We would love to host y'all on your next adventure to the Outer Banks, and as an extra thank you, we offer early booking for next year to our returning guest, at this year's prices! Thanks also for leaving the cottage in such good condition, it makes our job a lot easier! Thanks AGAIN, Susan & Jeff
