VALHALLA -- KITTY HAWK BEACH HOUSE WITH OCEAN VIEW.

Kitty Hawk House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Tickled by the receding tide, seashells sing melodious songs,

Overhead, flocks of gulls glide effortlessly across the horizon,

Skies painted with amber, pink and orange delight the eye,

The endless ocean teases the senses as waves flaunt their snow-capped heads,

Valhalla, I am home.

Valhalla, named for the heavenly hall where Viking warriors found eternal peace, is a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Nestled in a quiet Kitty Hawk neighborhood one block from the ocean, this little paradise is a haven for families seeking the quiet calm of a beach retreat. This well-appointed beach cottage comfortably sleeps six providing an affordable vacation home for you and your family. A deck off the living room is a nice place to enjoy a steaming cup of coffee each morning or take a few steps to the upper deck. Here you can almost reach out and touch the sky while basking in the beauty of the partial ocean view. Direct beach access is a mere 3-minute walk from the house. Valhalla’s personal touches will instantly make you feel as though this Kitty Hawk paradise was designed just for you.

Make your plans to stay in this wonderful semi-oceanfront retreat. Valhalla is the perfect venue for rest and relaxation plus when you’re ready for shopping, first-class restaurants, fishing and entertainment, are minutes away. This is a great location for your next summer vacation! To make your travel a more relaxing experience, we provide bath towels and bed linens. In addition, we supply bed top covers and pillows.

We have recently renovated Valhalla to include, a dark, rich hardwood laminate floor throughout, beadboard in the living room, kitchen and the master bedroom, and new kitchen cabinets as well as granite counter tops in the kitchen. And, best of all, keyless entry means no losing keys during your stay!

My wife and I bought our beach house in the Fall of 2011. We wanted to have an escape from our busy lives in VA and decided the Outer Banks would be perfect. We have spent the better part of the last four months remodeling our 'little slice of heaven' and hope you will be able to find the peace and relaxation that we enjoy when we stay at Valhalla.

Jack Crimmins purchased this house in 2011

This is a charming community that provides the visitor with a serene environment to relax while still in close proximity to everything a beach vacationer could want.

Perfect getaway spot

We stayed at Valhalla for 5 days in November. Not the time most people choose to go to the beach, but we needed a quiet, relaxing getaway and it could not have been more perfect. We basically had the town all to ourselves! The Valhalla property was immaculately clean, had everything we could have asked for and was only a minute's walk from the beach. My four-year old son made good use of the sand toys on the empty beach (he didn't mind making sand castles in his winter coat, and we loved having the place to ourselves). There was plenty to do away from the beach as well: Wright Brother's Memorial/Museum, Lighthouses, sand dunes at Jockey Ridge, great restaurants, etc. And with the cloudy skies, we didn't feel guilty at all about just staying cozied up in the cottage for a day. I highly recommend this location.
One tiny item that we missed in the kitchen was a basic tea pot (if it was there, we didn't find it). We had no problem heating up tea water in the coffee pot, but since we have one tea drinker and one coffee drinker in our family, it would have been nice to have both. Otherwise absolutely perfect!

Owner's Response: Dear Emily, thank you so very much for the kind words and, based on your suggestion, we just purchased a tea pot for the upcoming summer season.

Amazing Vacation!

My family had the time of our lives at Valhalla! This home is the cleanest rental I have ever stayed in! It is well stocked for a stress-free stay. The owners really have your comfort in mind. The whole home is updated and functioning. All appliances and extras are available and organized right where you would need them.
The location of this home is perfect. The walk to the beach is as described about 3 minutes either way. I have a 3 and 4 year old and it was not a hassle in the least to get to the beach. Plus, the utility room has a beach cart to pile all of your beach necessities in to get to the beach.
The neighborhood is quiet and relaxing but close to a little market and 2 restaurants. Definitely have a burger at Art's... The touristy attractions are very close as well. We played mini golf, saw the Wright brothers' memorial, visited Wings and had a clam bake at the Black Pelican. Don't miss Duck Donuts (also just down the street) but wait until the last day or two or else you'll be down eating donuts every morning!!!
If we can get back to the beach, we are coming back to Valhalla for sure!

(also, the owner was very reachable with any question. prompt and effective! I wish we were going back tomorrow!)

Great location, great cottage!

My husband and I along with our two year old stayed at Valhalla for 4 nights. The rental process was very simple and the owners were quick to respond. Upon arriving in OBX we were contacted by the owner to let us know that we could check in early and they called later that evening to make sure that everything was to our liking.

The floor plan of the cottage was perfect. I loved the open layout of the living spaces and the remodeled kitchen was beautiful. The cottage was well stocked with kitchen items, games, and beach gear. The beach cart was a lifesaver.

The walk to the beach access was very easy and manageable with a toddler.

We have stayed in other cottages in Kitty Hawk and I would definitely return to Valhalla. It is perfect for one family but I think may be a little cramped for more than one family.

Overall we had an amazing vacation. The weather was perfect, the ocean was still warm and the cottage exceeded our needs and expectations.

Great Property for a Family Getaway!

Let me begin by saying that this property has everything you can imagine for a family to enjoy a summer vacation in OBX. This was the first visit to OBX for my wife and 3 children and the only thing I can say is that we over-packed. The owners thought of everything, from towels and sheets to first-aid and sewing kits (both of which came in handy). We like to prepare our meals during vacation so we were very happy with the well-apportioned kitchen which had everything we needed including a crockpot.

The property itself was a great place to stay with more than enough room for us to enjoy the week. The kids really loved the bunk beds and took turns on the top bunk. The two inside bathrooms were perfect; one for the kids and a more private master bath. We did find the outside shower to be very useful right after getting back from the beach to wash off. It is also private enough for a full shower as it is enclosed and has hot water, as well.

We packed some floats and toys along with a Wonder-Wheelie for the beach and were happy to find that we didn't need them. There is a well-stocked room on the ground level that has pretty much anything you need for the beach, including chairs, boards and a beach wagon to make the short trip to the beach even easier.

My favorite part of the property is the top deck we called the crow's nest. I loved watching the sunrise in the morning and the stars at night. One night, as we heard on the news, there was going to be a meteor shower. So as I sat on the deck, the weather was warm and the skies were clear and I enjoyed a great light show.

OBX itself has great beaches, but, if the weather isn't cooperating, there are other things to do, as well. My wife loves lighthouses, of which there are 3 to choose from. We also flew kites on the dunes at Jockey's Ridge State Park after visiting Kitty Hawk Kites for supplies. We did have one wash-out day so we visited the Wright Brother's Museum, which we all found to be worthwhile. All of these are very close to Valhalla.

Overall, we really enjoyed ourselves in OBX and would highly recommend Valhalla. We do plan on returning , and we will be happy to bring less stuff!
