About Cathy & Mike
We are a retired couple living in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, about 300 miles from the Outer Banks. After visiting the Outer Banks for over twenty years when we retired we decide to purchase a condo there, that was in 2011. After a complete renovation we have had much success in renting it, so last year (2016) we decided to purchase a second unit, we spent most of the winter renovating it, it is now ready for your beach vacation. Mike retired as Fire Chief after thirty-three years of service and Cathy retired from the banking industry after 29 years. We have two children, four grandchildren. Cathy's parents went in with us on this venture they are 84 and 86 years young! They have been married for 67 years. We hope you have a wonderful time and make lots of memories in Flip Flop Time. Thanks Cathy, Mike, Mary, and Buzz

A great condo unit, in a fantastic location, in a building that needs some work
My wife, our 12 year old daughter and I stayed at "Flip Flop Time" over Thanksgiving. We found the condo unit to be exactly as advertised, pictures were 100% accurate. The unit is clean, well-decorated, and amazingly well stocked -- the kitchen had everything we could possibly need to cook Thanksgiving dinner. Microwave, stove, and oven were all in perfect working order.
The view from the balcony is amazing -- you're staring right at the ocean from the moment you walk in the front door. There's access to the balcony from both the living room and the master bedroom, and the master bedroom window faces the beach as well.
Wifi was reliable and fast, and all three TVs (living room and both bedrooms) were great.
The fantastic shower in the master bathroom includes a rain head. We would have liked to take that home with us!
The location is great, right in the heart of Kill Devil Hills, and an easy walk or drive to restaurants, grocery stores, and other retail establishments. It's less than a 5 minute drive to the Wright Brothers memorial and less than 10 to Jockeys Ridge State Park.
The only negatives we experienced were related to the building itself and some noise concerns. The complex has not been as well-maintained as this individual unit. There are several sections of the building where the vinyl siding is either missing or flapping free. When it's windy (as it was for our first two nights) the unfastened siding flaps against the side of the building. This is particularly bad on the street side of the building, where the second bedroom is located. It was nearly impossible to sleep in that bedroom the first night; lots of banging around outside.
The building also doesn't have a lot of soundproofing. We could hear every footstep our upstairs neighbors took, including every time their young child raced from one end of the condo to the other. :) It wasn't a huge problem, as they got quiet at night. But, the noise picked up about 7AM.
If you're a light sleeper, or like to sleep in, this is probably not the condo for you. As amazing as it was to hear the ocean, it was often drowned out by noise from elsewhere in the building (and/or from the HVAC, which was also quite noisy).
We'd consider returning here. Not sure if we'd come in the summer, due to the lack of a pool. Wish the building were a better maintained, and wish it had an elevator! (The cargo lift is better than nothing, but it's small and slow and loud.)
So glad that you enjoyed our condo and thanks for the great review. The issues of the building, we had some storm damage and the HOA is addressing them and it should be repaired this winter. As far as the noise in the unit above it is also used for rental.
Hope you will keep us in mind for your future vacations!

Perfect for a beach getaway
We had a great time at this cozy condo. It is beautifully updated and really nicely decorated. The beach / ocean views are amazing. It was perfect for our family of 4. The location is also awesome. We’ve been vacationing in OBX for over 20 years and this is definitely a great find! We will recommend to others!
Heather, glad you had a great stay at Flip Flop Time! Remember us for future vacations.

couple of small maintenance issues, but otherwise perfect!
The ocean view from this unit is spectacular! The location in KDH is also very convenient to food, grocery store, shopping, etc. The unit is a cozy 2-BR, but it's perfect for a small group. Very clean and tastefully decorated. If I am being really nit-picky, I would suggest to the owners that they fix the cabinet door in the kitchen that is loose and the hallway closet door that won't close, but those things were very minor. I've been renting in OBX for 30 years, and this was one of the best values.
Katherine, glad you enjoyed the condo and thanks for bringing the door issues to our attention.We will address these issue in the near future.

The property was immaculate and the view was stupendous
We spent an October week at this property. The unit is tastefully decorated and the ocean view from the deck was beautiful. We were treated to sunrises in the morning and the full moon reflecting on the water in the evening. The location is conveniently situated to make it easy to get to the area attractions, such as the Wright Brothers Museum and the towns of Duck and Corolla. We were also pleasantly surprised at the proximity of the local restaurants.
exactly as advertised; wonderful, updated, amazing view
Attentive owners; condo as advertised. Wonderful view. Could not ask for anything more.
Location, Location, Location!!!
Cathy & Mike's condo is perfect location, open the door and take in the sun, sand and ocean! Plus the condo itself was super cute! We absolutely will rebook!
