There are also loads of games, books, DVD and VCR movies available for your enjoyment as well as some toys for young children: Check the custom china cupboard and inside ottoman.

The Master Bedroom has 'wire' connection to WiFi network, TV/DVD/VCR, massive Master Bath, and an exterior entrance/exit to a private covered porch with stair access to the pool area and back of home.

The guest Master Bedroom has a rocking chair.

Outdoor Fun: The pool area has speaker to Surround Sound which can be turned on, with volume control, from the screened-in porch area, so music/sound can be enjoyed as well for 'outdoor' sound as well as 'indoor' sound. There are quite a few lounge chairs and a few pool floats. In addition to the pool, there is a screened porch, outdoor shower, and hot tub. Beach supplies and yard games are also kept in garage for your use: Volleyball, Horseshoes, Basketball, and Croquet. The beach umbrella can be used for short (due to wind/weather) periods with the outdoor patio table that has center hole for umbrella insertion.

Owner's Response: I imagined your group of ladies using the Lennox tea cups and cake plates. Hope you did! The protective dunes are a wonderful blessing in times of unsettled weather coming in from the sea. Thank you for staying wth us.

Will Be Back!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th year staying at The Beech House during our December Christmas trip. The house is spacious, and located in an ideal location for us. We love the master bedroom and bathroom, which really makes this house stand out above the rest. It is located in a quite neighborhood, but is still convenient to the beach, and isn't that far away from restaurants and things to do. Typically, the house is decorated for Christmas with a tree, which makes it extra special during the holidays, but not this year. Despite missing the tree (which in the grand view of things, isn't that bad) we had a great visit at the Beech House and will continue to come back in the future!

Great property and property owners!

  • 5 of 5

We had a little bit of trouble getting into the house but the property owner was quick to respond and had a local on standby if needed. The house had everything we needed. The kitchen is well stock with every item you can imagine and then some. Plenty of room to spread out and enjoy our time there. Great house!

Beautiful beach house in a quiet location! Staying here is a must! We love it!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit and we will keep coming back again and again. The beech house has a very homey feeling and is a great choice if you are looking for a safe and quiet location. It has a nice screened in porch overlooking a beautiful pool. The area is very dog friendly and welcoming of dogs. Just a short drive to the beach and also nice restaurants. The owner Judy is always prompt to answer any questions that you may have. I recommend this house to all of my clients. Staying at the Beech house is the only place we will stay!

We had a wonderful time during our stay at the Beech House.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Beech House was terrific! It was a large enough house to allow our friends to come and visit and not feel cramped. The pool was quite relaxing after a morning at the beach. The kitchen was nicely furnished with cooking utensils. It was nice to step away from the beach scene and to retreat to your own little neighborhood. It gave us a great feel for what it would be like to live there. We would definitely recommend renting this house again! Judy was a great home owner and takes great pride and care of her rental home.

The Sea Salt

The natural setting and physical placement of our neighborhood makes it exceptional. Eckner St. dead-ends at Beechwoods Timeshare Resort amid dense forest (which borders Woods Road). Our home is located .8 mi from the adjacent with the SeaScape community. It's a very family- and pet-friendly area, that is heavily wooded and lends itself to walking and biking. Very little traffic, but lots of foot, peddle and paw traffic can be expected all day, compliments of the placement at the back of the neighborhood along a nature preserve and Penny Toller Ditch.

There is also also a shipwreck that is quite visible for snorkeling close by, 1 block down from Eckner St. at Luke St. and perhaps just 100 yards or so out. Our access at Eckner St. is a lifeguarded beach.

Other Activities: Boating, shopping, kayaking, and miniature golf. The Town of Kitty Hawk prides itself on providing a public beach for the enjoyment of full-time residents and visitors alike. There are many public beach accesses, with parking available. There are beach accesses with parking at the following places:

Balchen Street

Bennett Street

Bleriot Street

Fonck Street

Hawks Street

Lillian Street

Maynard Street

Wilkins Street

There is a parking lot and public restroom at Byrd Street and at the Kitty Hawk Bath House, located just south of the intersection of Kitty Hawk Road and NC 12.

Visitors to Kitty Hawk's beaches are protected by our Ocean Rescue personnel, a division of the Fire Department. Ocean Rescue performs lifeguard and ocean safety duties from Memorial Day until Labor Day, and it works to inform the public on ocean safety year round. There are fixed lifeguard stands at the Byrd Street access, the Eckner Street access, and the Kitty Hawk Bath House access, as well as roving lifeguards.

Golf: Our 'Beech House' is located in an extension to the Sea Scape community, adjacent to the Sea Scape Golf Course. Additionally, very close by is the Duck Woods golf course, in Southern Shores, and there are many more including lower priced option on the mainland, such as Kilmarlic.
