Kill Devil Hills House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 7

"Red Shark Shack" is our interpretation of what a beach cottage should be. Filled with an eclectic mix of modern and antique furnishings and original artwork, it is at once welcoming and cheerful. Built in 1966, but completely updated and renovated in 2007, we converted the covered porch into the kitchen and dining rooms, opened the ceiling in the living room (adding a flat-screen TV and gas-fired woodstove), added a flexible bathroom with whirlpool tub, and a deck with outside shower. Two bedrooms and a desk area complete the floorplan. There are truly too many upgrades to list. We have added 2 Bikes to the property so you may enjoy a wonderful ride to the Beach or a stroll through the neighborhood...

Our home is "featured in 's 2009 house tour."

CATV, DVD. Other amenities include 2 adult bikes, books, picnic table, Jenn-Aire downdraft stove, pinball machine, deeded parking at Avalon Beach Access, board games, and DVD library. 400 yards to the beach. Milepost 5.5

Reviewer Comments:

Overall, we had a wonderful stay at the Red Shark Shack. When walking in the front door, it was exactly as pictured online. Very beautifully decorated! It was clean, except for the white couch, which probably couldn't be helped. Had all the amenities anyone could ask for. Baked and cooked a few days and ate out the rest. Had a few encounters with little spiders and ants but figured that was normal for the climate. There was a hole in one of the boards on the front deck that our granddaughter's leg went through but no injury. We spent sometime everyday at the beach, enjoying the waves, collecting shells and just chillin out. Weather was in the 80's everyday with no rain; could not have asked for anything better. The back yard needed some sprucing up but we didn't spend much time there.

Reviewer Comments:

This house was the perfect size for myself, husband and two kids. It was adorable and the kids loved looking at all the decor. My only complaint was that the house could have been cleaner. There were eggs just thrown in the backyard (maybe from the previous renter?) The white couch was really filthy as well as the daybed in the kitchen. We were there the second week in august so I'm sure after a summer of rentals it was probably cleaner in the beginning of the season. It was cute though and the perfect size and we loved the decor.

I enjoyed the house and location. The beds were rock hard. I slept on the bed the beds were Rock hard. I slept on the bed twice. The rest of the time I slept on the sofa which was quite comfy. The TV didn't work nor did the Syria the entire time that I was there. Medium kitchen head wood roaches in it. That's an easy fix. If I stay there next year it'll be different time of year probably in September.

Reviewer Comments:

This was our first visit to the OBX. Beach Realty was recommended to us by friends who have visited often. We were tremendously pleased with our entire experience. All of my questions were answered as I booked the rental with thorough info given about what to expect at the beach and with the rental. The photos were spot on with what we found at the cottage. The kitchen was amazingly stocked with everything we could think of and nice high end appliances. The entire cottage was very clean and it had a fun beachy feel throughout. This is a beach cottage, we felt very comfortable and at home. We have 3 kids and the separate bathroom compartments and ample counter space worked well for us. There was plenty of room to unpack and keep things stowed away. The outdoor shower was a lifesaver and while it was very HOT while there we also enjoyed the backyard hammock and bikes! For us this was a great location. About a 1 minute drive to the deeded parking next to Avalon Pier and an easy bike ride to the sound where there was a great bike/walking path. The neighborhood was very quiet and we liked being so close to everything. We experienced no problems with anything while there and would highly recommend this rental to a small family looking for a beach cottage stay!

Reviewer Comments:

The Red Shark Shack is charming, but needed some attention. The floors had not been swept, the white couch was stained, the ceiling in the bathroom was stained, the pinball machine didn't work, and a floor board on the front porch had a hole in it that we didn't see and our son nearly went through the porch when he sat down on one of the chairs. It's a really cute place and nicely decorated, but it needs a little TLC.

Awesome. This was our first time renting a vacation home and it couldn't have been better. The cottage was in a great location, central to everything, an easy walk to the beach and fishing pier. It was very comfortable and everything we could have wanted or needed and then some.
