Our favorite vacation house ever!

We spent a week with two of our children and their children - 14 in all. Every one of us LOVED the house! The remodeling is,beautiful, a tasteful blend of history and modern conveniences. We used the two large porches continually -a place for the kids to eat (when four of them weren't up in the captain's overlook) - or for all of to read, talk on the swings, or just look at the ocean. Loved the little touches - the hose to clean off our feet on the main floor porch (besides two very clean showers on the ground level); baskets or bookcases with all kinds of books to read; a tv in nearly every bedroom; and the kids loved having their own second floor all to themselves. The kitchen was well-stocked, with plenty of room for many of us to gather in. It was a quick walk to a very lovely beach, which was never really crowded whatever time we came. We've rented beach houses at the Outer Banks for many years,and this is by far our favorite!

We had a wonderful time. A large group of women stayed for a long four day weekend in very cold January. It was 17* when we got there and the water was frozen. The owner promptly sent someone out to work on it. He was great! The house has been completely modernized with out loosing any of the character. You need to make an effort to find time to stay here! We would definitely stay there again!

The Kitty Hawk Life Saving Station was everything we expected and more. It is an amazing historic building that was an honor to experience. The updates to the house are well done and make it an extremely comfortable way to be part of history. The ocean view were breath taking and the beach access was very convenient.
Our family looks forward to making a trip to the Kitty Hawk Life Saving Station an annual event.

A Great Place To Vacation

We really enjoyed our stay at the Life Saving Station! The charm and history of the property is great, and we loved being able to look at all of the old pictures! The spacious kitchen was perfect for group cooking and we had plenty of room for everyone in the house to spread their stuff out as they wished. It was very nice to have a fully equipped kitchen with an abundance of dishes! The front porch was wonderful and big enough for everyone to sit outside all together. Overall, a great place to stay and would recommend to anyone with a large group!

The house is located at two great surf spots....'Laundromat' and 'Old Station'... surfers, bring your boards! Huge deck with 180 degree views. House is on old beach road... literally cross the street to the beach. Unobstructed views. Walking distance to John's Drive In and the Black Pelican! Close to area attractions. This house is the best of both worlds...the old beach feel...but yet close to amenities. Cleaning fee is $125.00. Linen Fee is $60.00. 12% NC Taxes apply. We typically are booked a year in advance for summer and six months for off-season. We recommend booking early.
