About Sarah Close
I'm a regular soccer mom with a grown up college graduated daughter who works and lives nearby, and 12 year old at the local middle school. I grew up in Madison, WI, and have lived in a variety of places in my adult life....most recently moving here from St. John, USVI. We swim, paddle board, surf, bike, run and will knock each other out of the way to get to a treasured piece of sea glass. I rehab houses, sell real estate and manage hotels for a living. We have a big ol' Newfie named Bear....he loves all animals and people, especially the ones that drop food on the floor. He loves the beach as much as the rest of us, and expects to be petted by tourists with abandon.
Sarah Close purchased this House in 2009
Why Sarah Close chose Kill Devil Hills
When my daughter began college in Boston, I decided my son and I should move back to the states and be somewhere on the east coast so that we could more easily get together for holidays and family time. So...I bought a car and just started driving up and down the coast until I found a spot that had the right vibe. Yes, really. The natural beauty of the Outer Banks, the warmness of the locals here, and the lack of high rise buildings on the beach sold me. Somewhere along the way, I decided that I only wanted to live in amazing places that people want to vacation in. It was really important to me that I be able to get to the beach without getting in my car. I was also important to me to be close enough to modern conveniences (gas station/grocery store/highway) without having to see or hear them. This little cottage, under the siding, is one of the 1950's concrete block flat topped houses you'll see in this neighborhood. She's solid and sturdy (a little like me I suppose), and seen her share of storms. I'm all about the character and quality of older homes, and making them shine in their best light.
What makes this House unique
This house has some benefits you don't find easily here in the Outer Banks. First of all, it's on the ground! No steps means no hauling luggage, groceries, or beach gear up and down multiple times during your stay. It also has a completely fenced in back yard, which makes it safer for small children and more private for the whole family. It's the perfect size and price point for folks who don't necessarily want to vacation in a 10 bedroom house with a large group of people. Because the house is concrete and on a side street, it's much quieter than most of it's counterparts. I live in this house during the off season, so I think you'll find it far more updated and well thought out than most beach cottages.

Damage and incidentals

We had a great time here! Very close to beach with just a short and very peaceful walk. Fully stocked kitchen and loved that the master bedroom is on the opposite side of the house, separating it from all the rest of the house where guests congregate. Fully recommend this rental and owner is very responsive and very kind! Thank you for our stay!
Super cute and perfect size for our family of four and two fur babies. Just a quick walk to the beach right by Avalon Pier and Awful Art's store on the corner was great for convenience items!
The property is close to beach, clean, and neighborhood quiet. We enjoyed our stay!
Perfect 4th of July
Sarah’s home was the perfect place for our 4th of July vacation. We were in perfect view of the pier’s fireworks display. The house was an easy 2 minute walk to the beach. Our two dogs loved the backyard, too ! The house was very comfortable and clean with all the amenities we could ever need.
Thank you so much Sarah for everything!
Great layout clean and cozy!
Great place to stay very much enjoyed the area and all the things to do and see. Looking forward to your next trip to the Outer Banks.
Located at milepost 6, Avalon Limin' is an easy block and a half from the beach! The Avalon Pier is right next to the house's beach access, and there are several restaurants within walking distance. Tucked on a quiet street, the local movie theater is less than a mile away...and the Wright Brother's Memorial Museum is just down the road about 2 miles. Very convenient to the best that the Outer Banks has to offer.
