About Sara Brubaker

After all the kids went to college, My husband and I moved to the East Coast from Missouri. We have children in North Carolina, Oklahoma, and Colorado. We fell in love with the Outer Banks on our first trip down and haven't looked back since. It's our favorite place to go to unwind, catch up with friends and spend some time with the family.

Sara Brubaker purchased this house in 2007

Why Sara Brubaker chose Kill Devil Hills

After falling in love with the Outer Banks, we began the search for a second home in the area. The location of our beach cottage combined with the old school charm of the home was the main reason we purchased it. With a lifeguard stand less than 100 yards away, it's the perfect location for families traveling with small children. We love to sit on the deck and watch the sunrise beside Avalon Pier. The extra parking at Hayman is great when we have friends and family over for BBQ's and beach days. We've worked hard to improve this property since we purchased it and have added many upgrades including all new flat screen TV's and new appliances. We hope you love our beach cottage as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

The views from Good Vibrations are second to none. With expansive ocean views from the living room, you can enjoy those rare rainy days at the beach and not even miss out on the spectacular ocean views. The dining room and kitchen also boast floor to ceiling views of the beach right outside. One of our favorite pastimes is to enjoy a morning cup of coffee and watch the dolphins swim and play up and down the beach.

Friend get-away

Very comfortable house with beautiful ocean view. Nice lay-out for family or other groups with lots of space for socializing or getting away on your own. Well equipped kitchen. Disappointed to find owner didn't supply garbage bags--seemed silly and an inconvenience.

Good Vibrations indeed!

  • 5 of 5
Great location in Kill Devill Hills, close to everything. And you couldn't get much closer to the ocean. So nice to fall asleep listening to the waves. House is as pictured and well-stocked with everything you could possibly need. Bright and airy, and very clean and comfortable. We lucked out with great weather at the end of Sept/beginning of Oct, and the owner Sara was very responsive when we emailed her with questions. Just one thing to be aware of in case it's an issue for anyone: there are 3 steps up from the living room & bathroom to the master bedroom on the first floor.

Week at the beach

  • 4 of 5
Our stay at this home was from August 9 - 16, 2014. We rented the house with another couple, 4 adults, a 10 month old and a 16 month old. We were greeted the first day by the cleaner who rudely informed us that we were an hour and a half early and she wasn't done yet. We asked to use the bathroom and change our baby since we had been in a car for over 12 hours and were exhausted and she reluctantly let us as if she was doing us a huge favor. Obviously this was not appreciated. The house is as pictured and truly is on a beautiful part of the beach with a view of the Avalon pier that is within walking distance. The wright brothers museum is also right down the road which is nice to check out for an hour or two if you've never seen it before. The house is in good condition however we found that we needed to vacuum the drawers and carpets before moving our stuff into the master bedroom since the cleaner apparently didn't do a very thorough job. The downstairs central air doesn't work that great and apparently freezes up as indicated by the hand written note next to the control panel which states do not set below 74 degrees. As a result the downstairs master bedroom was a little warm at night, keep in mind the temperature never got above 83 degrees the entire time we were there. The upstairs bedrooms are preferable as they have there own ac units in the windows that do a better job of cooling. There is only one tub in the house in the downstairs bathroom which has a sliding glass door that only gives you access to half of the tub which makes washing a small child a challenge to say the least. Other than that the house is well equipped with cookware, silverware, glasses and plates as well as games, books, and DVDs. We truly enjoyed our time sitting on the back porch drinking a glass of wine and listening to the ocean waves crash 100 feet away. The public beach access is located right near the house which did make our section a little more crowded than we would have liked. For our situation with two small children that could not be put in the same bedroom or they would wake eachother up we would have preferred a four bedroom home, but if u have older children that can share the third bedroom the house would be ideal. All in all i would recommend the house but personally will not stay there again, this is partially because we enjoy staying in new places and having new experiences rather than going to the same place year after year.

Owner's Response: Hello,
I'm glad to hear that overall you enjoyed your stay at our home. After speaking with my cleaner and neighbor, I have to clarify that you arrived 3 hours early. Less than two hours after the previous guests vacated the house. My cleaner left the house to pick up some extra cleaning supplies and returned to find your family inside. The house was clearly in disarray with towels, sheets and cleaning supplies left out and she was flustered to have a guest find the home in such a state. About an hour after you left, she left the home again for less than 5 minutes to pick up the bag of ice we supply for your convenience and returned once again to find your family inside the home; despite her clearly stating to you the home would not be ready until check-in time at 3 p.m. If you would have simply called to inquire about early check-in, I would have gladly confirmed whether or not it was possible and provided a list of recommendations of where you could go in the meantime. We have never received a complaint about our cleaner but perhaps she felt rushed with you consistently attempting to enter the home before check-in time. Since your review, I have personally inspected the house following her cleaning and have not found an issue. Our air conditioner is a brand new unit, installed in July of this year. If you would have called, I would have happily sent someone over to inspect the unit to be sure it’s working properly and double check to make sure your suitcases were not blocking the vents in the master bedroom. Following your review we did send someone out and there appears to be no issue. The home has a large bay window and entire wall of glass in the kitchen that receives almost 6 hours of direct sunlight as the sun rises over the ocean. Keeping these shades drawn when you’re not in the home or inside to enjoy the views can make a big difference in the temperature of the home. In the future, please don’t hesitate to call or email the owner with any questions or concerns. We are here to ensure you are able to enjoy your beach vacation.

Beautiful Beachfront Bargain

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here for week with family and enjoyed my time immensely.

The house and kitchen are large enough to accommodate multi-family meals. We had a group of 16 for dinners (everyone was spread out amongst several other rentals in the area) and were able to cook and feed everyone comfortably. The washer/dryer were nice and not something we see in all rentals. It was nice to be to throw the beach towels in for a wash after a couple of days of use.

The location couldn't be better. There is plenty of extra parking at a beach access lot about two houses down and you are walking distance to the Avalon Pier. There are many quick and easy food options not far as well. We enjoyed Baldies and the Jolly Rodger.
Staying beachside was awesome and so convenient. We unloaded the back deck every morning and packed it back up in the evening. We got to watch dolphins in the morning while drinking coffee and sunsets in the evening while enjoying cocktails.

The house has comfortable furnishings, including the mattresses (some of the beds in rentals are less than desirable). The décor is cute and I love the vintage images displayed around the home. The house is well maintained and was very clean when we arrived.

I will definitely be booking this property next time we visit!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5
A group of 6 women age 55 spent the most relaxing vacation of our life. None of us wanted to leave. This was our first trip to Outer Banks and we were very pleased with the house, location, beach, weather, etc. The house was well equipped and laid out with lots of different sleeping options. The only disappointing thing was that there is no way to keep the windows clean due to the salt air so photos out the window are near impossible.

Charming beachfront with everything!

  • 5 of 5
We loved this house. Small, yet open floor plan and high ceilings, made the place perfect. Nicely furnished, great appliances, and very clean. The lovely deck provided afternoon shade. Saw dolphins all day, every day. Very convenient to any shopping, and only 4 miles from Kill Devil Grill! Sara was totally accommodating and helpful. We hope to rent this very place again, for sure! (PS: bring sharp knives for cooking...)

Our beach cottage is located in the heart of Kill Devil Hills. Conveniently close to shopping, restaurants and of course, the beach! The Wright Brothers Memorial is located just a 5 minute drive from the cottage. Climb up the top of Kill Devil Hill and you'll enjoy views from the Atlantic Ocean to the Albemarle Sound. You can really see why the Outer Banks is such a unique place from this perspective.

Avalon Pier is located less than a quarter of a mile away, perfect for anglers looking for the catch of a lifetime.

Our home is located directly in front of a popular surf spot. The best time for surf is September and October. The beaches and water are still warm but the crowds have gone home and the swell tends to be better than any other time of the year.

From 'Good Vibrations' you can walk to Brew Thru, numerous restaurants and the SeaGate Shopping Center where you'll find a specialty Popsicle store, a Mexican restaurant and some fabulous shops.
