Within walking distance of many of the restaurants like The Flying Fish, Mama Kwan’s, Dare Devil Pizza, Pizza Hut, Arby’s, Bob’s Grill, Miller’s, Five Guys, Wendy’s, Burger King, McDonald’s and many more.

The Turtle Shell is exactly what you see in the pictures. It was perfect for our girls (4) weekend get-a-way. Very clean, beautiful colors, & comfortable. Rental Rates for the home is right in line with the area if not better! Within walking distance to the beach and local shops. Great area for riding bikes! I would give it 5 stars*****Debra & Tim are wonderful owners.

A Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My family of four stayed at the Turtle Shell for our first trip to the OBX and had a great time! The house was clean, and super cute. We were able to grocery shop right across the street and get everything we needed for our week long stay. We walked down the street to the beach every day and were so glad to have the body boards, skim board, chairs and umbrella that were at the house! It made the stay so relaxing. We had fun mini-golfing, climbing the Dunes and trying new restaurants! We visited the Wright Brothers museum, Roanoke Island, the Bodie Island Lighthouse and it was all very conveniently located! Even with all that there was still plenty of time for reading books, watching movies and playing chess! Thanks for a great stay!

Another fantastic stay!!!

  • 5 of 5
I cannot express how much Debra and her husband care about their vacation home and your experience. The work they have done to accomodate everyones needs is truly remarkable. New deck, washer, dryer, dishwasher......the list goes on. You need to experience it to understand it. I can guarantee that you will not find another owner who wants you to enjoy your time as much as Debra does.

As a repeat "customer" (I feel more like family ,I have to say that we will certainly be back again.

Thank you!!

Wow!!! We loved every minute!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our week was awesome. We explored the Outer Banks from Corolla to Ocracoke. The location of the cottage made it easy to drive to both locations for day trips. We enjoyed the easy access to the beach, shopping, and restaurants. I was shocked at how many places could be walked to and the rest were an easy drive. The cottage itself was amazing and was well equipped to meet our needs. Our group had 3 teenagers, 2 young adults, and myself, (mom). We had plenty of room to sleep and meals were a breeze in the well-stocked kitchen. The large deck, well maintained yard, and garage had plenty of room for relaxation and games. Also, time was spent in the hammocks under the deck. (one supplied with the house and one Eno brought by the college kids) The extra bathroom in the garage helped out since we had a large group. My whole group was impressed with the house and how well it has been maintained and updated. Thank you Debra for allowing us to stay and for being so helpful before and during our stay. We would love to come and stay again!!
