We grew up vacationing in the Outer Banks. As kids, we made a pact that we would try to buy a beach house when we were older.

College resulted in my brother finding the perfect mate, Stephanie, a fellow OBX beach lover and perfect partner in crime.

After saving and saving, Howard and Stephanie along with children Skip and Claudia were ready. Aunt Sissy, that’s me, the third child and wheel, was included in the purchase.

Every year since 2003, we have tried to make upgrades and listen to our guests’ suggestions. It’s been great fun to build relationships with our repeating guests as well as new ones. We have rented to families all across America as far as the west coast. And we have enjoyed renting to guests from Europe, many from France, Great Britain and Germany.

We take pride in our house because it’s not a rental machine for us. It’s our off-season home and we rent it out only in the summer. That’s why you might see large blocked-out dates. Our guests also benefit from our limited rental dates because the house does not suffer from the typical wear and tear of a beach rental.

You will also notice that many of our reviews mention very clean and well-equipped. We have an amazing house keeper who cleans meticuously.

There are many houses to choose from in the Outer Banks. But we also know our house is very special and has created many wondeful family memories. We invite you to come stay.

We had a wonderful time at Cool Breeze. Everything was as described and even better. Great communications with the owners made the experience all the better. A great location and a beautifully clean and well equipped beach cottage made for a fun filled week! Hope to return next year!

Searching for a vacation home is not an easy process. For my family it was important to find the right location with easy access to the beach and a home that was updated and clean. When I opened the door to Cool Breeze, my first thought was “wow, we definitely made the right choice! " The owners have taken a great deal of pride in updating this home with bright paint, well stocked kitchen, new carpet, new bedding and lovely art. The check-in and check-out process is really simple and they provide you with lots of great information about the area. That's how we found the local fish house - Billy's Seafood at Collington.

You should stop looking at other rentals and choose this one. You’ll love it!

We had a great time at Cool Breeze. The house is so clean, and the kitchen had everything needed for a big pancake breakfast or platters for taco night. We really liked the new beds! Even though there were 9 of us, we had plenty of room to spread out and relax. Having happy hour while watching the waves was relaxing on the upper deck. We also enjoyed picking crabs on the picnic tables. There aren't commercial businesses at the house, like in some parts of KDH, but so many nice places are within a short walk. Stop n' Shop Gourmet Deli sandwiches were a hit with the adults and kids. An evening walk up to Dairy Queen was even a bigger hit with the kids (and grandparents). The beach was nice, plenty of room for bocci ball and umbrellas. The house is so convenient to the beach. It was really nice to be able to pop over the dune to re-stock the cooler or to take a break from the sun. Even though we have stayed before in the Outer Banks, the owners had great ideas of things to do in the guest book.Thanks for sharing your house again!

We've stayed in this lovely cottage three years and fine it so comfortable, warm, and convenient that we rent from the Estes (really nice people) with confidence that we'll have a fantastic beach week. Lots of space for everyone with an open floor plan and decorated to be beach friendly as well as clean, well maintained, and well equipped. We love the location, close to our favorite sights (Goombys, Exxon station, Wright Brothers Memorial and convenient shopping), and also centrally located to visit north or south Outer Banks. Being across the street from a beach access makes it simple for my 85 year old mom to drive over and we can also tote all of our beach stuff by car, there are always parking spaces available. Otherwise it is a very short, easy walk from the cottage. We especially like the fact that there is a lifeguard on duty and plenty of sandy beach. Beautiful sunrises from the walkover gazebo and stunning sunsets over the memorial.Cottage has good parking, nice outside decks and an outdoor shower .

We've been going to the Outer Banks for years, but always went further south to Avon or Frisco. Last May, we stayed at this lovely cottage in Kill Devil Hills and really enjoyed our week.

The location is a real plus -- just a short walk to the beach and it's close to shops and restaurants, many within walking distance. This house is also a short walk from the Wright Brothers' Memorial and there's a bike path that explores the other side of the island. One day, we biked to the giant sand dunes.

The house is very comfortable is nicely furnished. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need if you cook-in.

We intend to stay here again.
