Kill Devil Hills House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 10

New renovations and updates make this sunny cottage a true “home away from home.” The open layout is light and airy. The beach access, directly across the street, makes getting to and from the beach a breeze! We often hear from our families that are house is neat and clean. Use the well-equipped kitchen for a nice meal. Relax on the covered porches and enjoy the evening sea breeze or take in the ocean view from the sun deck. Free WIFI and DirecTV for staying in touch. You will find this home is centrally located on the OBX and is convenient to all restaurants, evening entertainment, water sports and activities. Unlike some of the beaches in the OBX, we have a full-time lifeguarded beach right out the front door.

Suitability:
  • pets not allowed
  • non smoking only
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • children welcome
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters

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 meticulously.

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

Definitely home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
This house was so great. We were expecting it to be wonderful and were still impressed at all of the personal touches. The owners definitely take great care of this place.

The kitchen is fully stocked with anything you could want on vacation- wine glasses, pancake griddle, seafood steam pots, you name it! The views from the decks are gorgeous and it's just a 2 minute walk to find your perfect spot on the beach. The house is on the beach road and all you do is cross the street and walk down the boardwalk ramp to the sand. And there's an outdoor shower WITH HOT WATER so you don't track sand all over. That definitely came in handy.

You can even see the ocean from the upstairs bedroom window! The house had plenty of space for us to spread out and not get in each other's way. There are board games and books and direct tv in case you need to spend a day/evening inside chilling out.

The location itself is so convenient. You can get anywhere you want to be on the outer banks in 15-20 minutes. We spent a lot of time on the beach and didn't even pack our lunches because it was just a 2 min walk back to the kitchen!

Definitely loved this place and it will be the first place I ever check availability for when heading to the beach. It's been a while since I had been to the outer banks and this house has absolutely set the bar. Yes, it's that great!

Very nice vacation home.

The house had everything you could want for a beach vacation. It lived up to my expectations. It was very well located and close by to lots of local area attractions. It was a key part of my family having an awesome vacation. Would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Great home- Great location

  • 5 of 5
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cool Breeze. The home is well maintained and the customer service provided was fantastic. The location is centrally located with a quick drive to any of the area's main attractions. The beach is just across the road and an easy walk. Thanks to the guest book located in the home, we had no problem locating local restaurants and finding the back way into the Wright Memorial for our morning walks/runs up to the monument. We would recommend this home to any of our friends.

Great house, great location.

  • 5 of 5
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!

Easy Beach Access

  • 5 of 5
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!
