3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom. Steps to the beach in historic Kitty Hawk, N.C.
We visited the Outer Banks for the first time in 2001 and have been returning every year since! Our children spend endless hours on the beach, while my husband enjoys his time at all of the golf courses nearby. I love the relaxing sounds of the ocean and my favorite spot on the sand to read my summer novel!
Why Christina chose Kitty Hawk
Over the years we have stayed in almost every town from Carova to Nags Head, but this house in Kitty Hawk is the perfect spot for a vacation home. From the moment we walked in the front door we felt it was the ideal place for us.
What makes this Cottage unique
The house is on a quiet street only steps to the Atlantic Ocean. Our children love to bike ride each morning! But a huge benefit is all the conveniences a renter could want are nearby. Restaurants, bagel & ice cream shops, miniature golf, movie theater, are all within minutes -- some within walking distance. Also close are food stores, pharmacies and shopping for beach needs.

My only negative comments are the terrible spiked hitchhiker. My 6year old grandson loves to run barefoot and it was an awfully painful experience. I know you have no control of your neighbors but the brick house needs a lot of
tidying .Its quite an eyesore.
We did have wonderful family reunion including my 97 year old mother ,my siblings and grandchildren.
Cute house and close to beach
"The Ideal Place" was a comfortable and clean beach home with good water pressure and room for everyone. It is only about 150 feet from the beach if you take the path that runs from the backyard through the neighbor's yard and is overgrown with pricker bushes and small cactus plants. The prickers stick to everything and hurt like hell! You end up carrying them into the house with you and when you try to take one out of your foot it gets stuck in your finger! OUCH! We had to leave our shoes outside in order to avoid stepping on any in the house barefoot. That was our biggest complaint. Other than that we had a good time. I would recommend to the owner that they try to do something about the prickers and cactus in the yard (which by the way you can not do anything in the yard because of these) and the pathway to the beach. Cleaning up/trimming back the pathway or putting down some pavers would be a good idea.
Close, clean and convenient
This property is great if you want to be close to the beach. Nothing fancy here and no extras. But comfortable, clean and convenient for beach access. Owner is easy to reach and accommodating.
Great sunrises can be seen off the back deck in this quiet neighborhood.
Would recommend for a family of 3-4.
The Ideal Place
Awesome location. AC worked great! Really enjoyed our stay. Sofa and carpet could be updated or cleaned. I spoke with owners to let them know. Kitchen was wonderful. Nice and roomy. I would stay there again. Loved the outside shower house. Be careful when going to the beach it's like a land mind getting through cactus plants. spurs everywhere stuck in your shoes. Might want to leave shoes outside so they don't get stuck in the carpet. You will end up stepping on them! ouch!
Excellent place to stay
Excellent place to stay. Well equipped kitchen, washer+dryer, dishwasher, TV/DVD/lot of movies and books, etc. My and my wife with our teen and preteen kids were more than comfortable there (it is for more people, actually). The owners responded almost immediately to a few messages I sent them with minor questions (thanks!). AC, fans in all bedrooms (3) + living-room, etc. Walking distance to the beach, which is pretty convenient. However, this Spring Break, we had decided to bike. A lot of interconnected bike routes (not highway shoulders, but really bike routes safe for kids) all the way from Kitty Hawk up to Duck, and the beautiful woods of Southern Shores. Almost no hotel nearby, so it is quite. Supermarkets, pharmacy, gas station, convenient stores, urgent care, cafe, etc., less than 1 mile around. Part of the sea can be seen from the porch, wide and comfortable. We enjoyed a lot this place.
Beach view/ lovely quiet neighborhood!
Walking disstance to 3 local seafood restaurants serving fresh seafood, a great Mexican resturant, beach shop, and local tackle store with knowledgeable owner for fishing pier or surfside! Watch out for cactuses though! Can't go barefoot till you get to the beach. Cable in every room and the house is fully stocked with everything but food! Enjoyable vaca with the fam!
