My wife and I stayed here for a week and really enjoyed it! The apartment had all the amenities we needed, (linens, towels, kitchen items, etc), it was the size of normal beach condo but for a much cheaper price! Owners live above, (which was one of our worries before the trip), however they were very nice and inviting, quiet, gave us great recommendations on where to go and to eat, and were very accommodating to our needs. The apartment was very clean and well maintained, nice large outdoor yard with privacy, outdoor shower, chairs to relax in, and a gas grill all for us to utilize whenever we wanted to. The beach was only 2 blocks away and near a public access (it is within walking distance but you have to cross a busy highway so we decided to drive). It is also very close to the sound on the other side which is a fun walk through the neighborhood to watch the sunsets. It is also very quiet area which was great for relaxing outside in the evening. It is a very nice area and we felt very safe during our stay.
Kitty Hawk and the Outer Banks is a great place to vacation, it is not your typical high rise hotel/touristy beach town, it is very quaint and laid back and exactly the place we were looking for. Make sure you check out the Black Pelican for some seafood, Trio for wine and beer, and The Outer Bean for some excellent juice and coffee, all within a half mile of the apartment. We had a wonderful experience at this property, we honestly could not be happier with our stay and will definitely be back. Our only complaint was that we had to leave!
