Guestbook comments from the owner
Hope everything went well for the Discovery Channel interview - please let us know when it will air! We had such a good time at Life Station 7; your home is so charming and welcoming. We see each other regularly and have a family cottage on the Potomac, but when we were getting ready to leave on Sunday, you would have thought we would not be together again for years – everyone was sad to leave and I understand one of the kids cried the entire way home!! Great place for an 80th birthday celebration and a weekend to remember for a lifetime. Thank you for sharing your home with us! We would love to return – will look way into the future – your calendar is full – everyone who visits wants to return!

OUR FAVORITE VACATION HOUSE EVER!

  • 5 of 5
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!

FANTASTIC STAY

  • 5 of 5
We had such a good time and can attribute much of that to the accommodations! Life Station 7 has a welcoming historical feel with modern conveniences, warmth, and charm. There were 16 of us (10 adults and six children) and had plenty of room to spread out and get away when needed. The kids loved being together in the bunk room - foosball in the game room was also a hit!

Great location with wonderful views from the two deck levels and Captain's watch. Loved that you can be out on the main deck and be in the shade while others are enjoying the sun. The hot water in the outdoor showers was a nice surprise as well.

The home is decorated so nicely, everywhere we turned we commented on the creative touches. Everything was taken into consideration and it comes across to those fortunate enough to visit.

We look forward to visiting again!

A PERFECT VACATION GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
This is a house with a fascinating history and, while it retains all its charm, still features every modern convenience. The decor is gorgeous, the rooms airy and comfortable and impeccably maintained. Steps away from the beach and an easy drive from all of the local activities, it is the perfect vacation rental for anyone who wants to experience Outer Banks living.

The owners are a pleasure to work with and have thought of every way to make your stay a delight.

We’ve been lucky enough to stay at the house in the height of the summer season as well as in the winter and every visit has been a retreat. We’ve created so many special memories here and look forward to our next visit.

Go NOW and rent this house for your vacation!!! Best decision ever!

WORTH STAYING AT JUST TO GET AN INTRICATE LOOK AT SUCH A HISTORIC BEAUTIFUL HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
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!

A SPECIAL PLACE FOR A SPECIAL WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
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.

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.
