Beautiful Property!!!

  • 5 of 5

"Summer Breeze" is so much more than the normal vacation rental, it is a beautiful home. The decor and attention to detail is just fantastic. This home is clean, well-equipped and organized; on top of being warm and relaxing. Our group of eight was very comfortable in this spacious home. We had coffee on the front porch every morning, walked across Beach Road to spend the majority of the day on the beach, then moved to the hot tub to enjoy cocktails while watching the beautiful Outer Banks sunset each evening, followed by dinner prepared in the beautiful and equipped kitchen. The outdoor shower with hot water is so convenient and the double washers and dryers are a bonus.

John and Debbie, Thank you for allowing my family and friends to spend the week in your home. We look forward to our stay next year; I will be contacting you when we have a firm date.

Would stay here again in a heartbeat

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of the house did not do it justice; even better than we had expected. Loved that the lower level bedrooms were separate from the others as we had a 14mo with us and it allowed for his sleep schedule to be undisturbed as well as the rest of the family! The kitchen was fully stocked with plenty of cooking appliances so we were able to easily prepare meals. Loved all the outdoor deck space and the view and access to the beach was unbeatable! I loved the house and would definitely stay here again. Also, the owners were very nice and easy to work with. Thank you!!

Great house & location

  • 5 of 5

Everything worked out great - the house right next to the public beach access and right off the highway. We had a wonderful weekend

Great beach house in Kitty Hawk.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. The house is very nice, clean, and well equipped. We especially appreciated the high chair! The beach is right across the street, so that was super easy. Also, you really can see and smell the ocean from the front porch. The hot tub out back was key, since we were visiting in December. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in Kitty Hawk.

OBX weekend visit

  • 2 of 5

I was so looking forward to our visit to OBX- my inlaws were in the area from Oregon and had never visited. The house was Ok- it is evident that the property is a work in progress- it should be listed as such. The house was not very clean and had not been visited by the owners since Hurricane Matthew- therefore not truly ready for guests. Although the listing indicates linens and towels are not provided, the listing should reflect that paper products, soap, etc. are also not provided. Unfortunately, I would not recommend this property.

Owner's Response: I appreciate your feedback and am sorry we did not meet your expectations. As we discussed on the phone when you arrived, I asked my next door neighbor to check on the cottage after the storm as we live 2.5 hours away. She related that everything was fine so we did not realize there was debris (shingles) about which needed to be addressed. As for the cottage being a "work in progress", I'm not certain what you meant by that.Possibly because the hall way ceiling was not painted. We had an HVAC leak and the ceiling was repaired and we were told by the contractor that he had painted it. People are not always honest or dependable and unfortunately as I stated earlier we do not live close enough to check on things ourselves each week. Please note that we have the cottage cleaned between each rental. Have not had any complaints previous to yours about the cleanliness of our cottage. I do have contact with my cleaning service after each guest to be sure things are in order. It is the norm that paper, soap and personal hygiene products are not provided with cottage rentals as they are with B&B's or hotels. Thank you for bringing that to my attention though. I will make that more clear for future guests. I do hope you enjoyed your visit in spite of the issues you encountered. We do our very best to see our guests have a positive experience. It is regretful that your first visit to the OBX was not up to your expectations. Sincere wishes for a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to your family. Deb & John
