About Russell & Terry Brinkley
Our family has been vacationing on the Outer Banks (OBX) of North Carolina EVERY SUMMER since 1998 (20+years) and we always dreamed of owning a cottage there. As of November 12, 2015 that dream came true and we are so happy to share this beautiful getaway with others. We manage this property ourselves. Good for a romantic getaway, families with children and those wanting to go sightseeing, fishing, golfing, touring and other OBX related activities. We know it is a big decision when planning a vacation and we want to help you with any questions you may have, so please contact us and we will do our best to respond to you in less than 24 hours. Thank you for viewing all the photos and information about the "TURTLE SHELL" Beach Cottage!!! Russell & Terry Brinkley
Russell & Terry Brinkley purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Russell & Terry Brinkley chose Kill Devil Hills
Great location and rates! Convenient to lots of restaurants, entertainment, historical interests, golf, putt-putt golf, fishing, bowling and events in the area. It's a family beach area!!! This cottage is quaint and open. Great for gathering to socialize upstairs and downstairs. There is an outside shower which makes it nice when you come in from the beach and you can shower to remove the sand before entering the house. Large charcoal grill and picnic table. The neighbors are friendly. The dead end street makes it quiet and the cottage is a short walk to the beach, groceries, drug store, nice restaurants, fast food, beach rentals, shopping, etc.! Pretty much, everything you need Rainy days happen sometimes and there is a bowling alley across the street, a movie theater about 4 miles away, a YMCA about a mile away, lots of shopping options, NC Aquarium. But if you want to hang out at the cottage there are games provided and the enclosed garage is a great space for playing the corn hole game, ping pong & other games we have available.

Very nice, has everything needed for a couple/family.
We had a great time visiting the different coastal towns/tourist sights. Coming back to this comfortable cottage was a pleasant way to end each day. If we ever get the idea of coming back to this area we would definitely try to get 'The Turtle Shell' cottage!
Great house for kids
Everything was clean and as advertised. House came with Alot of toys and child friendly items (pack and play, booster seat, stroller, beach chairs, ect) so saved us alot of packing. Would stay here again.
A little further walk to beach than expected but super clean and full of nice surprises. Owners thought of everything!
With the two (2) beach carts we provide (so you don't feel like a "pack-mule") it is an easy walk. There is also FREE parking at this handy beach access if you don't want the exercise. It is a 4-5 minute walk as described in the website description. We do provide lots of extras (sheets, bath towels, beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, bikes, etc.) so you don't have to rent them or pack your vehicle so tight. Many other wonderful items are at the TURTLE SHELL for your enjoyment. Come and see for yourself!
Perfect house for a girls’ weekend!
We had an enjoyable weekend at the Turtle Shell! We especially loved having access to the extra beach equipment and the proximity to the beach. The carts made it so easy to load up our gear and walk the block to the beach.
Russell and Terry are extremely communicative and a pleasure to work with!
Great place. Everything you needed to have a wonderful vacation was provided. Easy walk to the beach and a lot of places to eat within walking distance. Will visit again.
Beautiful Beach House!
We rented the Turtle Shell for the weekend and we absolutely loved it. My husband and I and our four kids all had lots of fun. There’s neat little things scattered around the house for the kids to play with. The downstairs is completely equipped with anything and everything that you’d need to take to the beach, complete with chairs, coolers, wagons. The ping pong table was a lot of fun. Can’t wait to go back!
Thanks Sarah, We are so delighted that you enjoyed your stay at the TURTLE SHELL. We try hard to consider all ages who will stay and add the "little things" that will make your time more enjoyable. It's nice to know you appreciated it and enjoyed making wonderful memories.
Golfing, Putt-Putt courses, go-carting, fishing, plane & helicopter rides/tours, surfing lessons, jet ski rentals and tours, outlet shopping, grocery stores, K-Mart, Wal-Mart, restaurants, The Y (formerly YMCA), sightseeing, Wright Brothers Memorial, Jockey's Ridge Park, bowling is across the street, and so much more to do & see in the OBX.
