About Janet Haase

We love the Outer Banks! Our family has been vacationing here for over 30 years. Now that our children have grown and have their own families, we still try to vacation here at least one week in the summer. We walk, bike, jeep ride on the beach and play games in the street! We look forward to sharing our little paradise with you!

Janet Haase purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Janet Haase chose Outer Banks

We fell in love with this big white house one day when we were walking by. We had been vacationing around the corner for years. The proximity to the beach, the decks, the pool and the perfect location sold us!

What makes this cottage unique

We love hanging out on the porch in the morning with coffee, watching the sun rise over the ocean. There is a general store a block away that has everything, food, sandwiches, wine, flip flops, sunglasses, ice and gas!

Awesome house, great location

  • 5 of 5

The house is well kept and large enough to sleep 12+ people. It's central location in KDH and blocks to the beach makes it a great spot for larger family vacations

Wonderful house

  • 4 of 5

Rented this house because loved the location and amenities of the home. We liked having 2 living areas so the kids could have there space and we could have ours. The pool was fun to have in case we were tired of going to the beach but just wanted to cool off and play. The pool table was great in the evening or if we just wanted to relax and watch the kids play (also gave them the opportunity to learn to play). Having bunk beds is a plus because my 3 boys like to be in the same room together. The only complaint I have were the dishes. The seashell plates were very pretty but they are not dishwasher safe(hand wash only) and the dinner plate doesn't fit in the microwave. The melamine plates were great for the kids but not recommended for the microwave or dishwasher.

The location of the house was very convenient to different activities and sites. We were minutes away from the Wright Brothers Memorial (can see it from the balcony) and many water activities (kayak, surf, etc). There are 3 lighthouses as close a 1/2 hr to 90 min depending on how far you wanted to explore. And the beach was a few blocks away.

Would definitely stay here again!

Thanks Janet!

Great Location, Property, and Owner

  • 5 of 5

Sizzlin' Sands was the perfect house for our annual Outer Banks summer vacation. There was plenty of room for everyone, the house was very well maintained, and the decor put the perfect finishing touches on the property. Our hardest decision all week was whether we wanted to go down to the beach or stay by the pool, so we usually ended up doing both. The walk to the beach was short and easy, even with 3 small children, and the pool was clean and there are more than enough chairs, loungers and tables. We cooked dinner every night in the well-stocked kitchen, and we spent every night either hanging out on the balcony where there is plenty of seating, or down in the game room. The owners were amazing to work with and made the whole process incredibly easy. We would definitely want to stay here again in the future.

Great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about this wonderful home away from home. It is even better than the pictures show. The house is very spacious and with six adults it never felt crowded. The beach is a very quick walk and when we wanted a change, the pool was fabulous! We enjoyed a wonderful week with our kids and their spouses. We would definitely like to return! Thank you Janet for always answering our questions promptly and for allowing us to enjoy your rental property!
