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.

Nice Weekend

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Dew Itt at the Beach for a long weekend and had a great time. Perfect sized house for a small group and easy to navigate. Owners were great to communicate and work with.

Clean with all the necessary items including laundry. Outside shower for after beach use.

Awesome Beach is 300-400 yards away. Fishing pier is 1.5 miles away. Grocery store right across the street.

Great place to stay for a family

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed Christmas and celebrating my mom's 60th birthday at this property. The house was clean and had everything we needed. The owner was nice and answered my questions I sent via email in a timely fashion. I would definitely rent this house again for a vacation or getaway.

Very comfortable house

  • 3 of 5

The house was very comfortable for 5 adults. Fenced in yard was great for our Golden.

Our suggestions are: A tv guide would have been helpful. The other VRBO houses we've stayed in have had tv channel listings. The house definitely needs an upgrade in its wireless connection. It was difficult to stay connected. The property description listed 1 queen bed and 2 double beds. Actually, all 3 beds are queens which we discovered after renting the wrong size sheets. Luckily, the rental company exchanged them for no extra cost.

Owner's Response: Dear Carolyn, Thank you for your honest review. We will try and get another Charter TV channel guide. There was one in the coffee table baskets, but it may have been thrown away. The guide on the tv is always a handy tool to use. I'm going to the house today and I will measure the beds to see what the sizes are. This is our first 3 star review, so I will continue to take into consideration the needs of our guests. Courtney

Perfect long weekend with friends

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property off a previous recommendation that mentioned that OBX marathon. A friend and I were signed up for the 1/2 marathon this year and needed a convenient location as our "home base". It took us less than 10 minutes to reach the race start on Sunday morning and our friends were able to find the spectator locations along the race route. Our planned group of 10 guests ended up only being 5 (plus 3 dogs) at the last minute but we easily could have accommodated everyone in the four bedrooms. Kitchen was nicely stocked- we had to buy trash bags and dishwasher tabs but gladly left them for the next renter. We cooked our "carbo-loading" pasta dinner Saturday before the race and had no issues or unmet needs in the kitchen. The only negative was that we couldn't figure out how to turn off the subtitles when we watched a DVD but, believe me, that would NOT deter me from returning! Highly recommend Colington Cafe for dinner, and the Outer Banks Brewing Station was a neat experience. The dogs loved the house and I can echo other reviewers who raved about the enclosed yard and easy walk to the beach. We couldn't have had a better time, especially for the price. Our thanks to the owners!
