About Hans Kraeger
We're the Bassetts of Connecticut and the Kraegers of Georgia - a brother & sister whose families are very close and share the same love for the ocean. We open up our home to guests and hope that they enjoy it as much as we do! If you want to know if our home is right for you, review our guest comments. Welcome to Sea-Esta!
Hans Kraeger purchased this House in 2006
Why Hans Kraeger chose Kill Devil Hills
We narrowed our list down to 15 properties, based upon certain criteria. We wanted: a quiet street (non beach road), still see the ocean, close to public beach access, a pool & hot tub, and a home in impeccable condition. This home was brand new and an open floor plan which makes all the difference when vacationing at the beach.
What makes this House unique
We enjoy having coffee on the decks in the morning & sitting our there at sunset. We enjoy being able to relax by the pool in the afternoon. Between the pool, hot tub, shuffleboard table, and surround sound theatre, the cottage has everything we need. The hallways are wide and the cottage is large enough to host our combined families. We do not feel crowded, so much so that we find others sneaking a mid-day Sea-Esta and thus named our house!

Comfortable, Cozy, Well-equipped home just a short walk from the beach
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Sea-Esta in Kill Devil Hills. It was extremely convenient to restaurants, shops, Kitty Hawk, and one block away from the beach access. We loved the hot tub, and wish we had come at a warmer time so we could have enjoyed the pool. Thank you for opening your lovely home to us! It was just the right size for our group, and we liked having the two separate gathering areas.
It was perfect for our family of 8. Loved the pool and hot tub!
Beautiful area, would recommend The Black Pelican Restaurant!! Unit was. Lean and had everything we needed and then some!
Great location and great house
We had a great week staying here. The house had everything our family of five needed. We easily walked to the beach and my boys loved the pool. We ate out for some meals, but also cooked in some nights. The kitchen was well stocked with all needed tools. Bed linens and towels were provided and were all clean.
Great house, If you can do stairs.
It was perfect for the 10 of us. three families. fairly close to the beach. pool and hot tub. we were a little surprised when we found the kitchen and living room were on the third floor. maybe it was in the description but none of us remember it. could be a problem for some. But you do get a great view.
Great house in a fabulous location with tons of immunities and everything you need for an amazing beach vacation. Having a private pool was really nice too.
Thanks so much for your kind words - your group was great to work with! We'd be delighted to have you back anytime.
Sincerely, The Bassetts & Kraegers
Very nice stay but a few updates you may want to know
We really enjoyed our stay at the SeaEsta and Robin (the owner I interacted with) was an absolute pleasure to work with. The home was clean and the AC and heat worked well (there are 2 thermostats). The outdoor hot-tub was super nice and clean. Didn't get a chance to try the pool out because it was too cold during our stay, but it was clean upon arrival. Pool/hot tub area was surrounded by a privacy fence, which was nice. One piece of information that may not be apparent from the pictures online is that there is no pool table. When we arrived, the pool table had been replaced with a very nice shuffleboard table. We enjoyed the shuffleboard, but one of the reasons we selected this particular rental was for the pool table as my son absolutely loves to play pool. There is also no longer a basketball goal. The gas logs did not work during our April stay. It didn't appear that the gas was hooked up. So, a little disappointed with the website not being updated with that information at the time we booked. This home is a great place to stay, but it is helpful to know exactly what to expect upon arrival. One of my favorite features of the home were the balconies on each side of the home (a total of three). The hammock on the second floor balcony was the perfect place to get away for a nap. The street that the house is on is in a nice neighborhood and was very quiet during our stay. It is a short walk to the beach but if you want to drive, there is parking at the beach access. Home is in a very good location close to many restaurants (try Goombays restaurant while you are here), drug stores, ice cream parlors, game rooms/arcades, etc. My wife and I slept in the king bed on the bottom floor and were very comfortable. The TV's in the bedrooms were flat screen, but the TV's in the den and game room were old school box types. If you have an HDMI cord accessory you want to use with the TV, you'll be okay in the bedrooms but not the den. I didn't love that the kitchen/great room was on the third floor, but I knew that going in. One benefit of this is that you have a great view of sunsets from the kitchen table with plenty of windows to view it from. There were plenty of cups, dishes, pots/pans, a toaster, a blender and all the utensils/silverware we needed. In short, the home was clean, well-maintained, and very comfortable. You may notice I keep referring to it as a "home". That's what it was for us for the week we stayed.
