Why Cheryl & Gary Slaymaker chose Kill Devil Hills

This home is close to the beach and we loved the decks. It is a very cozy cottage! Another plus for us is that it is close to our other home the Crow's Nest,

This home is pet friendly...the dogs love the freedom of the gated deck.

What makes this cottage unique

Comfortable and Relaxing Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This is the third year in a row my wife and I have stayed at amazing grace if that tells you something. It is a very comfortable house. Last year we arrived and there was a new paint job. This year when we arrived there had been new carpet installed. We find the house very comfortable for our week-long stay at the beach with our 2 dogs. We love the deck and the little perch on top of the house too. It is very conveniently located to several sites we enjoy seeing when we are at the outer banks, including the Wright Memorial, the woods preserve, Jockey's Ridge State Park, etc. The owners are fantastic and it has always been a pleasure dealing with them. We will be back!

Major relaxation by the beach

  • 5 of 5

You know it was a fantastic vacation when at the end, you look at each other and say, "can we stay another week or two?". Which is exactly what happened at Amazing Grace. It was the perfect place for my husband and I to unwind and spend our days taking walks, sitting on the beach, reading, and going out to dinner. I loved that the house was centrally located, so we could get to the grocery store and restaurants easily. Walking to a few places was even possible, as was grabbing a bike from the shed below the house and riding on one of the quiet roads to the store. I also loved that the house was just a short walk to the beach. Overall, we had a wonderful vacation, and I can't wait to go back!

All you can have near the ocean

  • 5 of 5

I loved our stay at amazing grace. This 3 bedroom house was very spacious and located conveniently close to the beach and restaurants/shops. I wish the main living room had a modern TV since we stayed inside the house for a whole day when it (unfortunately) rained. All 3 bedrooms have a smart TV, but the main living room TV is very outdated. The utensils were not very clean, and neither were the bathrooms. Although the utensils are to be washed by previous guests, I would still make sure housekeeping checks that they are clean for the next guests. Overall, I would stay at amazing grace again. It was very affordable and spacious in a great location.

Owner's Response: Hey Faride, Glad to hear you had a good time. So sorry the bathrooms were not up to standard. Next time you find anything wrong call me right away and I will have it taken care of. I did talk to the cleaning company and they went over and doubled checked the cleaners and was going to pay extra attention to the bathrooms. We are working on a new next year !! Thanks again for staying with us Smiles Cheryl & Gary

Charming Beach House - Super Clean and Dog Friendly!

  • 5 of 5

First, thank you so much to Cheryl for being so awesome during the booking process -- highly communicative, very informative of the area, and always cheerful!

We stayed at Amazing Grace for 2 weeks - 6 adults, 1 baby, and 1 dog. There was plenty of room for all with 3 very spacious bedrooms, 2 full baths, and an outside shower. The open floor plan in the living area made for great conversation and was plenty big enough where it never felt like you were on top of each other. We were a very short walk to the beach (about 5-7 minutes), which was great to go back and forth from the beach all day long. The location in KDH was perfect -- in the middle of OBX and allowed us to adventure up and down the coast or walk across the street to Duck Donuts and the ice cream shop. For our first time in OBX we can not say enough and we look forward to returning one day in the future!

If I had any recommendations for improvements it would be the mattresses were VERY firm (with the exception of the Master, which was pillow top). And we had wished there were some recreational outdoor games since we had traveled from MA and didn't have room to fit those in the car.

Overall, I can not speak highly enough about the property (location, space, cleanliness) -- I have never rented a home that was cleaner! I actually started to wipe down the bathroom when we arrived and the wipes were spotless because it had been cleaned so well! For a dog friendly home, you would also NEVER know that dogs stayed in the house. Thank you so much for allowing us to create memories in your home and we hope to return in the future!

This home is located near milepost 8. Walking distance to the public beach access and many fine restaurants.

The Outer Banks is a great place to make memories. Besides the beach and ocean, you can go sailing, fishing, kayaking, jet skiing, para-saling & more.

You can also enjoy a hike up Jockey's Ridge, the largest sand dune on the east coast. ( Take a hang gliding lesson !) A short drive North takes you to the 4 wheeling beaches where you might spot a herd of wild ponies. A short drive South takes you to the island of Ocracoke.

Also visit the Aquarium, Outlet shops Marinas with fishing charters !! Lots to do and time to do nothing !

About 20 minutes north, Highway 158 in Grandy there is a wonderful antique collectible shop DANNY'S DISCOUNTS it is a must stop! Their phone number is 252-453-0222. This is where I get some of my special treasures you see !
