About the property

1 Acre W/gardens, Lg Mstr, Shower For 2 & Jacuzzi, 2nd Br & Bath/Walk-In Shower.

Property features gardens to meander through. Main unit being rented is separated by large sunroom from another Suite. The rental unit is the main part of home, 2 br 2 bath. The master has a large walk-in shower room for two, and jacuzzi. Plenty of places to get away here! The home is 100'x50'...I designed it so that when the kids come with the grands, everyone would have their own private spaces, private entries and plenty of places to get away. We are renting out the main living area and only four occupants accepted,. The only areas that are shared with owners are the laundry room, which has access from the main unit, and from an exterior door, and the grill area (Nut Hut). You will have total privacy inside the rental. New water park only 2 miles away. I need you to know in advance that our goal is to provide a nice, quiet comfy vacation to our guests. Rental agreement must be accepted and understood by you. Linens, pillows, towels and beach towels provided by you, unless you have requested for me to provide.

About Deborah Grant

We love the OBX, Joey is a contractor and built the home, Debbie is NC Certified Plant Professional and enjoys gardening. We grew up in NE NC and lived in Kill Devil Hills when first married, but decided that we wanted to be close enough, 10 minutes, to the beach to enjoy it, but especially during hurricanes, we prefer to be in Currituck. We enjoy boating and fishing in the sounds, taking the kids and grandkids to the beach when they visit, and church on Sunday. We love it here, and believe you will too.

Deborah Grant purchased this house in 2005

Why Deborah Grant chose Powells Point

We believe your choosing this place will offer you a relaxing vacation that is like home away from home. We are right off 158, and we suggest you come on a Friday if possible to begin your stay, although that is your decision. The traffic on Saturdays coming into the OBX usually backs up. We offer a very clean, comfortable and quiet place for your enjoyment. You will love the outside shower! We also have a full house generator for emergency use (hurricanes), and if Dare County is evacuated, we normally are not. There are no steps to climb!

What makes this house unique

We love this house because it is roomy and offers so many garden views, is located so near the beaches but most importantly to us, a nice public boat dock ramp is convenient. The large main unit sleeps 4. The "Nut" hut has provided for great oyster roasts and garden parties. The acre lot is a small botanical garden. Garden tours in the past have been conducted. 3 miles to H2OBX Water Park, 10 minutes to Ocean and beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great Time in the OBX!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful time during our stay as we celebrated our honeymoon in the Outer Banks. Debbie was a wonderful host, making sure that we had all that we needed to enjoy our stay in their beautiful home. We will certainly be keeping this property in mind as we plan our future vacations in the Outer Banks!

Go fishing off one of the piers or at the beach. Tons of beach accesses. Ferries, to Ocracoke or Knotts Island, a great day trip. Climb Lighthouses, tour Elizabethan Gardens, go see The Lost Colony Drama in Manteo. Nice Cinema in Kill Devil Hills, visit Wright Brother's Memorial, enjoy awesome seafood! Or relax here in our gardens, in a comfortable, clean and quiet home away from home. Just up the road, the Cotton Gin/Sanctuary Vineyards offers festivals and activities. The famous Grave Digger is about 10 minutes away. The beaches are a 10 minute drive from the house. The Cotton Gin at Sanctuary Vineyards also offers hang gliding just up the road, or enjoy it at Jockey's Ridge.
