Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house had enough room for our family to spread out. Between us all, we had 5 adults and 4 kids, ranging from 1 year old to 8 years old. The older two (5 and 8) LOVED going upstairs to the game room. The bedrooms were all within close proximity to each other, so we felt safe with our kids in another room. Being that the bedrooms are all on the second floor, if the kids woke up early in the morning, we could go downstairs or outside on the screened porch to play so we didn't wake others. The kids also enjoyed playing in the garage. Ample amount of room to keep our kids occupied.

The pool was great. It was cool because we went in mid-May, but we swam every afternoon. My son particularly enjoyed the hot tub. Being that the pool and hot tub were all together, our whole family could be together. If one needed to nap, she could be put down inside and we could hear her while the rest of us were outside. There were plenty of chairs and the table with the umbrella served us well for lunch.

The house is situated in a residential area that feels far from the beach and action, but it is actually within a mile. With small kids, we drove to the beach daily which took less than 2 minutes. It turned out that we quite enjoyed the removal from the beach in the afternoons.

There are several stores and groceries within a 5ish minute drive.

There are movies and games in nearly every drawer and cabinet in the house. If you are bored, there are plenty of options. The owners were very kind and helpful. We had a question in the week and it was answered quickly and kindly! We would definitely go back to this house again!

Wonderful Thanksgiving getaway with friends and family!

  • 5 of 5

The only downside was that it was not summertime and we couldn't enjoy the pool...but the hot tub was a close second! We brought bikes and made good use of them, even to Jockey Ridge! Very comfortable for ten, including three teens. Only negative was that while there was comfortable table seating for ten, it wasn't at one table. If you enjoy peeling shrimp, chicken wings and/or tacos, Hurricane Moes during happy hour is a must!

Great private house

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Beech house was amazing. It is really the perfect location to have a nice quiet vacation. The house is located in a nice private wooded section that is close enough to the beach for a short drive (2min) or most of the time we walked. Very central location as we were right near walmart (dont forget to buy toilet paper and trash bags) and many restaurants and shops. Arts place is an amazing burger place that was within walking distance right next to the beach. It was nice to have to pool where you could hang out in the mornings and evenings when you are done with the beach and the hot tub was perfect for the fall nights. The house is huge and it took us a little time to realize there was a third floor up a spiral staircase. It leads to kid room/pool table which was an added bonus. We dont have kids but this would be perfect for them because I'm 30 and the nostalgia alone with the 100 plus childrens vhs movies was amazing. I dont know about the bad review because we even got back some money we accidentally left in the hot tub. We will definitely stay here again next time we visit obx.

Best Vacation House EVER!!!

  • 5 of 5

I don't really know where to start when talking about everything! Would it be the fact that EVERY SINGLE light switch was labeled letting you know what it turned on and off? Would it be the amazing pool and hot tub? Would it be the beautiful hardwood floors throughout? Would it be the HUMONGOUS television and entertainment system? Would it be the endless books, games, toys, puzzles, etc that are there for the part of the family that doesn't enjoy water activities (even though we are on a beach trip?)?

The entire vacation from pre-arrival to departure was so perfect! Just a few minutes to the beach, my children wanted to ride the bikes that were in the garage to grab their spot on the sand. Plenty of very comfortable made sleeping arrangements so easy.

I can't say enough about how thankful that I am that our family found this gem, booked it, and then stayed :-) We can't wait to come again!!!

Thank you again for being so wonderful :-)

Very nice vacation

  • 5 of 5

The location of the house is perfect if you aren't looking to be right at the beach. Not far from the beach, quick drive or bike ride. Garage was stocked with bikes and pool items. Kids, even ones in their 20's enjoyed riding the back roads. House was very comfortable, master bedrooms were lovely. Very large rooms. Note, it is pet friendly and my golden loved the trip, beach, and pool, but I did come to find out from the pool girl that dogs weren't permitted in the pool or pool area, so that dampened my spirit since that's why I chose a dog friendly house. Just for that reason I would possibly pick a different house to rent next year.

The neighborhood is very nice and quiet. Parking was ample. Very roomy inside.

Nearest Restaurant
0.5 Miles
The Sea Salt

The natural setting and physical placement of our neighborhood makes it exceptional. Eckner St. dead-ends at Great Barrier Island 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.
