The SeaWitch is perfect cottage for those looking for a classic cottage with modern conveniences - new central A/C, new stainless appliances, Dish Network DVR system with 65" LCD TV, and FAST internet! There are 3 bedrooms, the "Yellow" room with a king bed and 50"wall mount LCD TV with Dish Network and DVR, the "Blue" room queen "Tempur-pedic" bed, and the "Green" room has 2 twins. The bathroom has a newly tiled shower with handheld spray and glass tile accents, cabinet style vanity, and lots of hooks to make sharing easy. There is also a nice large outside shower, completely rebuilt and repainted with new controls and showerhead.
The house is very dog friendly - large yard completely contained with 4' wire fence attached to wood fencing; we just added fencing around the kitchen stairs so dogs can be let into the yard without having to go outside now. The beach access is located on the Kill Devil Hills / Nags Head town line, which means the rules are different if you go left or right at access - Nags Head allows dogs on leashes year round (I've never had a problem letting them off leash to throw the ball though) but KDH restricts dogs on beach from Memorial Day to Labor Day between 9am and 6pm. So, you basically have to turn right at the access to go into Nags Head during the summer.
The living area features a large, comfortable couch for the humans and older "Crate" furniture for the dogs, a 65" LCD "Smart" TV, High Def. Dish Network TV with DVR, Surround Sound System, Blue Ray Player, and blackout blinds so anytime is movie time. A large picture window makes the great room feel even more spacious. WiFi with 60 MB cable internet and new "AC" router means (usually) fast internet, testing around 63 MB
Kitchen features an "Induction" range, boiling water faster than but with the control of gas, and no wasted heat. Three level stainless dishwasher is so quiet you can hardly tell it's running. Stainless Fridge with Ice-maker is big enough to hold the week's groceries. I've tried to include every item I can think of for the serious cook, right down to a remote meat thermometer and kitchen scale. Gas Grill outside has cast iron grates for nice sear lines.
50 year old milled wood T&G walls in the great room will take you back in time while the brand new Allure Plank "Country Pine" floor throughout the entire house feels great underfoot and is easy to keep clean. New ceiling fans throughout the cottage as well as a brand new central heat and air system, over-sized for quick cooling.
We will only rent to adults over 25 and families, with families much preferred... sorry kids, no spring break beach weeks. Rates include: The rental with 2 TV Dish DVR and WiFi, sheets and towels for each bedroom (enough for 6 people), and all the taxes.
There is a downstairs apartment which is being used for storage and will not be rented. We occasionally may stop by to get something out during the day.
When you exit the cottage driveway turn right to head towards 8th street that is an easy 1 minute walk to direct public access on the left (ocean side) and a boardwalk to the beach.
Within walking distance of many of the restaurants on the beach road like Kill Devil Grill, Red Drum, and a short bike to Tortugas. All of "French Fry Alley" fast food is a couple blocks away. Various stores for shopping are also within walking distance. Ben Franklin, Harris Teeter, Ocean Atlantic Beach Rentals are only 2-3 minutes away walking. And of course Ms. Helen's famous biscuits is just across the by-pass - you know when the work trucks line up at a place in the morning and at lunch, it's got good food.
Under the porch there is plenty of space to store your fishing rods and beach accessories. There is an outside shower as well, just remodeled as of 6/12/2015.
Brand New (May 2016) HE front loading washer and dryer in utility room.
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, Jeannette and Avalon 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
This Sunday to Sunday cottage with check-in at 4 pm and check-out at 11 am the following Sunday. The Seawitch is great for a couple, small family, or groups wanting to keep additional family & friends close by.
Our home, although in the tradition vintage style cottage, the property is fresh and clean. It was renovated in the winter of 2014 and spring 2015.
