About the property

Between the Highways in the Heart of the OBX. 4 bedroom/3 bath

Cute and comfy, 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom beach cottage. The cottage is located on N. Croatan Hwy. between the highways in Kill Devil Hills, NC at Mile Post 7. We are three short blocks to the ocean and we have beach access at the end of our block. There is enough parking for 25 cars in case you would like to drop off the coolers and chairs. Enjoy gathering around the spacious bar separating the kitchen and eat-in-dining table from the great room. Kitchen has a dishwasher and microwave.

Within walking distance of many of the restaurants like Mako Mikes, Goombays, Chinese and Italian restaurants, as well as a new raw bar, Subway, Little Caesar's, and many more. Awful Arthurs and Captain George's is very close by, as well as many restaurants featured on the Food Channel. Various stores for shopping are also within walking distance. Putt-Putt, Food Lion, and the movie theatre are all within blocks.

The house has 3 queen bedrooms upstairs (including a master), and a large bedroom downstairs with a queen bed and pyramid bed, (twin over full bed.) (4th bedroom) Hardwood floors upstairs in living room and large tiles throughout the kitchen, dining area and all 3 bathrooms. If you love the sun, you will enjoy full sun on the southwest deck from sunrise to sunset. We prefer to rent to adults and families as this is a family centered beach town.

In the spring and fall you can watch the birds migrate up and down the coast. The cottage is only a short walk from the beach where there is direct public access and a life guard stand. Relax and enjoy the beauty of the Outer Banks in this beach-themed, fully equipped cottage. Lots of personal touches and amenities to make you feel right at home.

*Note-you will have to bring your own sheets. There are pillows and comforters on the beds. If you don't want the hassle of bringing your own sheets, there are several companies that will deliver sheets.

Atlantic Rentals 1800-635-9559.

The address is 1613 N. Croatan Hwy, Kill Devil Hills, NC. The cottage has plenty of parking with the double concrete drive. There is a storage room underneath and plenty of space to store your fishing rods and beach accessories. An enclosed outside shower with hot and cold water is located on the ground floor along with a hose and spigot to wash the sand off your feet or to wash your car. The charcoal park style grill is a favorite among the guests.

Come to the Outer Banks for a nice quiet vacation and enjoy the uncrowded beaches, ride bikes, or for just being lazy. You will be within walking distance of restaurants, drug stores and shopping, and will enjoy spectacular sunrises over the Atlantic Ocean.

You will be located near the Wright Brothers Memorial, Outlet Mall, Manteo, Elizabethan Gardens, The Lost Colony Play, North Carolina Aquarium, Jockeys Ridge State Park, Bodie Island Lighthouse, Fishing Piers and Charter Boat Fishing. We highly recommend the beautiful drive down Rt. 12 through the Cape Hatteras National Seashore and a visit to the Currituck Lighthouse, and Cape Hatteras Lighthouse.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this cottage. We were thankful for the fenced in back yard that gave us a peaceful place to sit outside. There was plenty of sitting areas on the deck to have coffee and/or breakfast. The cottage was clean and well-kept. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a great location, just a 5 minute walk to the beach. The house was perfect for my family & pet dog. 4 nice size bed rooms with big closets, 3 full size bathrooms, a laundry room. the front deck is nice and so is the yard. The kitchen & living room was also very nice. The house is very clean and well maintained. We felt right at home. We all had a great time.

Had a great time!

  • 4 of 5

Great location! We went down for my 40th birthday and had a great time. The place was very clean and close to everything. The owner was very quick to respond to any concern we had and addressed the issue within a day even during the holiday weekend. I would recommend and definitely rent here again. Thanks Courtney!

Owner's Response: Thanks Josh! Loved having you. You were so easy to work with. You even offered to help fix the doorknob! I'm so glad you got to go 4-wheeling on the beach up north and make the trip to Ocracoke. If you ever stay with us again, just mention this review and I will take 10% off your stay! Courtney

Good times in spite of some disappointments.

  • 3 of 5

The house was beautiful and in a very nice location. Can walk to the beach, Food Lion, KMart, Mini Golf, Tennis court and other attractions were very close. Some disappointments: PacMan did NOT work, sliding glass door was very difficult to slide, 3 picnic tables and an add'l plastic table > non of which were in condition for a family to sit and have a meal (one collapsed when someone tried to sit on it) Deck gate was missing 4 slats, so luckily we found a baby gate in a closet and used it so our dogs could be on the deck with us. Yard had tall dirty things growing (left our feet and ankles black). Someone did come mow the afternoon before we left. (we did not address that with owner, I had already been in contact over 3 other issues). A few other minor issues, but in spite of all that, our family of 5 adults and 2 dogs still had a relaxing time. Just wish we could have had that PacMan tournament we were looking forward to and eating outside as a family would have been nice too. If owner addresses these issues and fixes them, this home would be fabulous !

Would suggest you make sure all is as it should be before you rent!

Great Size, Walk to Beach, but location not the best.

  • 4 of 5

Owner: Courtney the owner was very responsive and was easy to get in touch with for questions. She did notify me a few days in advance that her cleaning company could not clean the house prior to our stay and offered a partial refund. She does ask that you pay a $500 deposit in addition to the rental cost which is something I have never had a vacation rental owner do before. She did refund this a few days after our stay. She holds the deposit until after her cleaning company leaves and notifies her of the condition. She reached out to us about excess dog hair after our stay when we did not have a dog at the home which was surprising given the condition of the ceiling fans and air vents which clearly not been cleaned in a long time.

House: Overall the actual house was good. My family was at the OBX for a wedding and the house had a lot of space for a few of our family members. What I think needs to be clearly included on the listing is the proximity to the road. The house sits right off of the main 5 lane road which can be very noisy especially if you're a light sleeper. I would be worried to stay in the home with small children or a pet due to the proximity to the busy road. The house was walking distance to the beach which was really nice. From the house it takes you about 5 mins to walk to the public beach access.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Hattie. Most people don't mind the proximity to the road, but it is true that there is some road noise when the house is quiet. A lot of people actually like the view it affords. Ienjoy sitting on the deck to watch the cars/people go by. Since we didn't have a cleaner, wasn't sure if you had the dog, but I did pay my cleaner an extra fee for the dog hair. Didn't mean to blame it on you. Thanks for working with me and glad you enjoyed your time in the Outer Banks. Courtney
