Located at MP7, one street back from Beach Road, this beach box cottage, affectionately named 'Dragonfly Dunes' is located just 700' (one block) from the best beach on the central Outer Banks of North Carolina. The first thing that will catch your eye is the inviting front porch, just waiting for you to sit and watch the sun come up on balmy summer mornings at the beach. The kids will love the covered sand pit, offering hours of digging fun. Included are bikes, sand toys and beach chairs. These are there at the beginning of the season but we can't guarantee their presence all summer. The rear deck is the place to retire in the afternoon after a day on the beach. More sunbathing and grilling while enjoying a cocktail finishes off a perfect day in the Outer Banks.
The inside is tastefully decorated with comfortable furnishings. There are 2 queen beds, a trundle (2 twins) and 1 roll-away bed. There is locked storage underneath the house where the outside shower is also located for privacy. This shower actually has a sink and toilet with it! The yard is landscaped with sod, irrigation, flowers and vegetables. Yes, tomatoes and peppers are growing out back for your enjoyment. This is a treat in the Outer Banks since most yards have indigenous cacti and you can't walk in the yard.
The Outer Banks just offers too many fun outings and activities to list. The biggest draw is probably the myriad of lighthouses that can be explored. Ocracoke is a great day trip and is accessible by an exciting ferry ride from Hatteras. Ocracoke beach was voted the third best beach in the US and it's right there within your vacation. Why, you can see 3 lighthouses on that day trip alone!
We generally ask for June-August to be weekly rentals but will consider last minute partial bookings. There will be a $200 refundable damage deposit. All bookings subject to cleaning charge and sales tax. Cleaning is included in the weekly rates.
Come get a taste of the Outer Banks of NC and see why everyone gets addicted to this breathtaking edge of the earth.
As partners, we own a real estate appraisal company and have one son that is into skim boarding, skateboarding and swimming. We are just an outdoor family that loves to play in the water, be it at the beach, lake or pool.
After visiting the Outer Banks in the eighties, we decided that this was one place that just spoke to us. After several years of planning/saving, we purchased our perfect beach house here. There is so much history, nature and outdoor activities that make the Outer Banks so special. Come join us in our love and appreciation of OBX.
At our cottage, we are in the midst of everything. Restaurants are within walking distance. The grocery store is just across the highway. Even the movie theater is only short stroll away. By far, the best part is the short walk to the beach access at First Street. Also, our street is only about 50/50 rentals/non-rentals. This means it's quiet and family-oriented and a great place to relax.
Skim boarding, skateboarding
