New renovations and updates make this sunny cottage a true “home away from home.” The open layout is light and airy. The beach access, directly across the street, makes getting to and from the beach a breeze! We often hear from our families that are house is neat and clean. Use the well-equipped kitchen for a nice meal. Relax on the covered porches and enjoy the evening sea breeze or take in the ocean view from the sun deck. Free WIFI and DirecTV for staying in touch. You will find this home is centrally located on the OBX and is convenient to all restaurants, evening entertainment, water sports and activities. Unlike some of the beaches in the OBX, we have a full-time lifeguarded beach right out the front door.
We grew up vacationing in the Outer Banks. As kids, we made a pact that we would try to buy a beach house when we were older.
College resulted in my brother finding the perfect mate, Stephanie, a fellow OBX beach lover and perfect partner in crime.
After saving and saving, Howard and Stephanie along with children Skip and Claudia were ready. Aunt Sissy, that’s me, the third child and wheel, was included in the purchase.
Every year since 2003, we have tried to make upgrades and listen to our guests’ suggestions. It’s been great fun to build relationships with our repeating guests as well as new ones. We have rented to families all across America as far as the west coast. And we have enjoyed renting to guests from Europe, many from France, Great Britain and Germany.
We take pride in our house because it’s not a rental machine for us. It’s our off-season home and we rent it out only in the summer. That’s why you might see large blocked-out dates. Our guests also benefit from our limited rental dates because the house does not suffer from the typical wear and tear of a beach rental.
You will also notice that many of our reviews mention very clean and well-equipped. We have an amazing house keeper who cleans meticulously.
There are many houses to choose from in the Outer Banks. But we also know our house is very special and has created many wonderful family memories. We invite you to come stay.
This is the second time we've stayed here and it might've been better than the first (which was pretty perfect!). We had great weather, the beach wasn't too crowded, and a friend of our family came with her two kids and we were so thrilled at how baby safe this rental is! There aren't excessive nick knacks, there was a high chair and a baby gate! There were even sand buckets and shovels to play with at the beach! We LOVED that there was a full time life guard at the beach, as the surf was rougher than usual this week.
Everything was just as described and everything was gorgeous and spotless. The manager is one of the best we've ever dealt with - a pro at customer service! She went above and beyond for us. We would absolutely recommend this place to family and friends, so you better book it before we take all of the available spots!
My family and I had a fantastic week at Cool Breeze. The property is exactly as described and the owners are more than helpful. We love the easy beach access, and the cottage is very clean and freshly decorated. This trip was our second stay, and I'm sure we will return on our next visit. Thanks for a wonderful place to call home for our week at the beach.
We had an amazing week at your lovely home. Since I have 4 grand babies (3 of which are 1 and under), the convince and close proximity to the beach was exactly what we needed. The kitchen was well stocked and all the beds were extremely comfortable. We were close to all the main attractions and the restaurants we love. Thank you for sharing your home and I so appreciate the easy rental process!
This house was so great. We were expecting it to be wonderful and were still impressed at all of the personal touches. The owners definitely take great care of this place.
The kitchen is fully stocked with anything you could want on vacation- wine glasses, pancake griddle, seafood steam pots, you name it! The views from the decks are gorgeous and it's just a 2 minute walk to find your perfect spot on the beach. The house is on the beach road and all you do is cross the street and walk down the boardwalk ramp to the sand. And there's an outdoor shower WITH HOT WATER so you don't track sand all over. That definitely came in handy.
You can even see the ocean from the upstairs bedroom window! The house had plenty of space for us to spread out and not get in each other's way. There are board games and books and direct tv in case you need to spend a day/evening inside chilling out.
The location itself is so convenient. You can get anywhere you want to be on the outer banks in 15-20 minutes. We spent a lot of time on the beach and didn't even pack our lunches because it was just a 2 min walk back to the kitchen!
Definitely loved this place and it will be the first place I ever check availability for when heading to the beach. It's been a while since I had been to the outer banks and this house has absolutely set the bar. Yes, it's that great!
The house had everything you could want for a beach vacation. It lived up to my expectations. It was very well located and close by to lots of local area attractions. It was a key part of my family having an awesome vacation. Would stay there again in a heartbeat!
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cool Breeze. The home is well maintained and the customer service provided was fantastic. The location is centrally located with a quick drive to any of the area's main attractions. The beach is just across the road and an easy walk. Thanks to the guest book located in the home, we had no problem locating local restaurants and finding the back way into the Wright Memorial for our morning walks/runs up to the monument. We would recommend this home to any of our friends.
The Outer Banks is a 200-mile long series of barrier islands on the coast of North Carolina that stretch from the Virginia/North Carolina State Line to Cape Hatteras. Well known for its temperate climate and expansive beaches, the Outer Banks is a favorite vacation destination for tourists from all over the world. The town of Kill Devil Hills is located in the geographic center of the Outer Banks and is most famously known as the site for the first heavier-than-air powered flight by Orville and Wilbur Wright, commemorated today by the Wright Brothers National Monument which anchors the town. In Kill Devil Hills, vacationers will find a rich history that ranges from the from the first English settlement in the New World to the dawn of the Space Age alongside the East Coast’s finest fresh seafood markets, cleanest beaches and most sought after destinations in surf and Gulf Stream fishing.
