Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2

Located at Mile Post 6.5 in Kill Devil Hills, this private unit is located on the ground level of my home. Set in a quiet family neighborhood, the unit is approximately 450 square feet and consists of a large bedroom with a comfortable queen bed, a sitting area with a recliner and an extra chair, a 32 inch HDTV with extended cable package and Blu-Ray player, and a large closet.

The front room has an apartment sized refrigerator, microwave oven, toaster oven, toaster, coffee maker with complimentary coffee, love seat, small drop leaf dining table with two small bar stools, basic cooking utensils and silverware, dinnerware for two, and a 19 inch television with Roku streaming stick. The Roku allows access to Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Videos, and many other popular channels. We also provide an electric skillet and electric griddle for your use. Free Wi-Fi is also available.

Keep cool in the summer time and warm in the winter time with heating and air conditioning units that are separate and apart from the main house.

Outside, guests have exclusive use of a gas grill with side burner, the outdoor shower with hot and cold water, a sitting area directly outside of the unit, and another sitting area with hammocks and a porch swing. Guests also have exclusive use of a covered parking area.

We provide all linens, towels, two beach towels, and two beach chairs, a beach umbrella, two camping chairs, and a small cooler. In addition, we provide an iron and small ironing board, a hair dryer, and other essentials.

We are located less than two-tenths of a mile from a public boat ramp with oversized vehicle parking. Within three-tenths of a mile is a multi-use path that runs adjacent to the Sound (bay) – perfect for enjoying the picturesque OBX sunsets or taking a leisurely stroll, jog, or bike ride. There are numerous restaurants, supermarkets, a movie-theater, and shopping facilities are all within a few short miles.

If you have a small child, no problem. The bedroom can accommodate a portable crib and if need be, we can provide a camping cot with mattress.

Please note, while we are pet lovers ourselves, we simply do not allow pets in the unit. No exceptions, sorry.

There are no cleaning fees added to the price or additional insurance/maintenance fees, just the $100 refundable damage deposit. The damage deposit is refunded within a few days after check-out.

Within a week of your arrival, we will provide you detailed access instructions to make check-in as smooth and painless as possible. Once you arrive, you will find a notebook binder with more information on how to access the wireless, how to operate the television sets, some local insights on good restaurants and attractions, and so forth.

Checking out is just as simple. We don’t have any specific requirements other than to leave the unit in good condition, the same way you would like to find it if it was yours.

In short, we think you would be hard pressed to find a hotel room or similar accommodations on the Outer Banks that provide the same amenities, the same atmosphere, and the same service for less than $100 per day during the summer months.

Feel free to contact us with any questions.

About Property Manager/Owner

Having grown up in southeastern Virginia, I have been coming to the OBX on vacation all my life. As an adult, I owned two vacation homes in Kill Devil Hills. Upon retiring from Portsmouth Public Schools as a teacher, I decided to make the beautiful OBX my permanent home.

Home away from Home! Cozy, comfortable, with a convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely in love with Recess! A perfect size with all the amenities needed for an amazing vacation! Cozy and comfortable bed with nice soft thick towels. Convenient location, everything is within a minutes drive, walk or bike ride. Property owners were a pleasure to work with and extremely helpful. I would highly recommend Recess and look forward to a return visit in the near future!!!

Very welcoming and comfortable; very clean.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed my stay and appreciated having cooler and beach chair available to use. The only downside was the AC unit was rather loud when it was running. I would consider staying there again. Conveniently located in OBX.

The Recess is adorable!

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my stay at the Recess. The place is well kept, comfortable, and has all the amenities you would need. I liked the hammock and swinging porch chair outside. We even used the grill they

provide.

Very homey feeling

  • 5 of 5

As soon as you walk in the door it feels like home, its nothing like a hotel at all. The owners are very nice. The beach is only about 10 blocks which is awesome and the sound is super close. Neighbors are also very nice as well. Hopefully planning our next vacation to recess.

My husband and I stayed from 6/28-7/1.Very cozy and very clean. Conveniently located a block from the sound and Mike the owner was really nice to tell us where we could get some great sunset pictures. Also very close to shopping and restaurants. We enjoyed our stay and will stay here again in the future. Thank you Mike and Mary Lee.
