About Alan Kochheiser

My family vacationed each summer at OBX from 90-99 and then my wife was taken by cancer in late 02. I purchased a condo in Sect. F (03) and sold it 04 to buy present home. My current wife Ginger and I love our home and the Outer Banks. We try to improve our home a little each year to make it more comfortable for our guests. We live in Delaware, OH, and get to use our home 5-6 weeks a year. Because we specialize in renting to young groups our home is booked every week from mid-May thru August. Book early and try our off season weeks and shoulder weeks for some really good discounts.

Alan Kochheiser purchased this House in 2004

Why Alan Kochheiser chose Poplar Branch

It was a good buy at the time and we took it from a 3 bd, 2.5 baths to 6 bd, 4 full baths, 2 halfs, and a 12 X 24 game room and added a hot tub. We had a lot of fun designing the new addition in 2005 and it makes for a fun home. It is also located in a neighborhood that is all residential, but across the road from a great golf course and within 2 miles of many wonderful shops, restaurants, grocery stores, unique businesses, and a movie theater.

What makes this House unique

Alan enjoys running events in the Outer Banks. In the fall there is the OBX Marathon/Half Marathon. During the summer months they have many activities scheduled at the Whalehead Club (5 miles North) and many are free.

                                                                The house was perfect for our friends vacation! Lots of rooms, bathrooms, and space for the 15 of us in one house together. It was a short walk to the beach, then we'd come hangout in the pool and hot tub in the evenings! The owner was great; easy to contact, accommodating and checked in to make sure everything was okay.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                This was an easy group to correspond about the house. They were very quick to respond to all requests for information. And my cleaners gave them a very good report. I would definitely rent to them in the future.

                                                                kim h.

                                                                The property was exactly as described. We were able to plan a vacation with lots of children involved and spoke with the owners several times before the trip. They had a fully stocked beach closet and great hospitality. We felt very at-home here.

                                                                Absolutely Wonderful!!!

                                                                We had a fabulous vacation! The house and area are wonderful. Everything was just as described and it's s very short walk to beach. It took us about two minutes maybe. The house has everything you need and was spotless. We loved the private swimming pool. The best part about everything is Alan! I cannot say enough about how wonderful he was to us. He was great and always quick to communicate. Can't wait til we get to go back next year!! A absolute treasure!!! Thanks again Alan for sharing your wonderful beach house with us!!!!!

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Kevin and his group (albeit small) had made a last minute decision to give the Corolla (Outer Banks) NC a try and they found our discounted rate on VRBO and put in a request. I found a way to talk with them and we made it work. That is what I do!!!

                                                                They were very kind with their review and I would certainly recommend them to any other owners. By the way my cleaners gave them a 5 out of 5.

                                                                Thank you Kevin & Alena

                                                                The house was perfect for what we needed - we had a large group and wanted a place to stay for a wedding at the Currituck Club. The location was very convenient and we had plenty of space for our group. Alan was very communicative and accommodating. I'd definitely recommend this place for groups of young adults or teens.

                                                                AWESOME beach home!

                                                                Sarah M.

                                                                This beach house is awesome! With many bedrooms and an open kitchen/living room floor plan it was the perfect place to spend time with great friends. Alan was great at communicating and the house was even better than we had expected. Quick walk to the beach and great pool/hot tub in the backyard. We will definitely be back!

                                                                Great place, as described, everything you need and more.
