About Cheryl & Gary Slaymaker

We live in NEPA at the time. Gary is from PA and I am from WV. We have been visiting the OBX for many years and Lord willing hope to retire to the area! We enjoy our dogs. Have chickens for fresh eggs. Generally have a small garden and can up tomatoes and apples during the fall. Gary is an electrician and I am an artist.

Cheryl & Gary Slaymaker purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Cheryl & Gary Slaymaker chose Outer Banks

This is a cute cottage, some paint and a new deck made it even better. The location is a nice neighborhood, friendly !! and a nice walk to the beach.

What makes this cottage unique

We decorating with an Americana theme, and a focus on WWII. Using colors and styles of homes during that time. It will take a while as items of that era are getting harder to we will continue to up date as we find the treasures needed.

Bombardier Bay is decorated to remind us of the greatness of America and all who gave. I hope it will give a history lesson as well as renew our respect for the sacrifices given, big and small ! Lots of windows to enjoy the surroundings. Sliders to the deck in front and back of the home. A path to the beach and a view of Wrights Brothers from the back deck. Pets are welcome...we have a wall with pictures of Military Dogs they will enjoy :) During prime weeks of June July and Aug we rent from Sat to Sat, check in is 4pm check out is 10 am. During off season we are flexible on this. Smiles

Great for families and pets!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at Bombardier Bay in early August. We were provided a with excellent service and a comfortable home for 8 people and two dogs. The pictures don't do the house justice that is a short walk from the beach!

Nice vacation home, close to beach.

  • 5 of 5

We received excellent service before our visit to OBX from Cheryl. Very nice, with lots of information for us.

Home was exactly as advertised. Well maintained. Comfortable. Kitchen stocked with what you need.

Bathrooms are a bit tight/small. If you are a large person - you may not be able to move around. Just FYI. We had no problem.

We had a wonderful time! Short walk to beach. Easy access to everything!

Two negatives (which would NOT keep us from renting again)

1. BBQ grill is at the end of it's life. We were able to use it, but I doubted that it would make it to the end of the meal. Thankfully, it did!

2. The house next door is a serious eyesore. Trash, unkempt lawn, just a general mess. Good thing - they have let the trees on Bombardier Bay side grow up so you don't see this when you are sitting outside on the deck.

Overall, we had a wonderful vacation and would rent again!

Nice house, great location with plenty to do!

  • 5 of 5

Bombardier Bay is a great place to say in Kill Devil Hills. We arrived to find the house clean and well maintained. The military tribute displays and décor around the house were tasteful and appreciated. We noticed that Cheryl and Gary, the owners have made several nice upgrades to their property that include new front and rear decks and what appeared to be new siding. Inside there are some modern looking ceiling fans, all very nice. AC which was definitely needed during much of our stay worked well.

The owners are very nice folks as well. We spoke with Cheryl during the rental process both by e-mail and phone. She was very friendly and helpful. We were told that we should call them if there were any issues with the house , but were none.

Bombardier Bay is located very close to the Wright Brothers Memorial, just off the main drag. We visited there and also spent a couple of days at the beach. For other activities we went to Manteo, toured the NC Aquarium, waterfront, lighthouse and museum. We also stopped at Outer Banks Distilling to see how local rum is made. We actually got to speak with the owners, which was great! Since we couldn't buy rum at the location because of ABC rules, we brought back some rum balls made with their product. We ate at some great restaurants, The Black Pelican, Miller's, The Beach Café. We also had a meal and a beer tasting at the Outer Banks Brewing Station, fantastic! There was so much more that we could have done, but just ran out of time.

I would definitely recommend that you stay at Bombardier Bay, thanks Gary and Cheryl for opening your home so that we could share the OBX. Clayton, Julie & family.

Would go again.

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely perfect. The place was neat and clean with a reasonable price. The owner was very helpful. Great location, short walk to the beach and a quick drive to pretty much all the attractions and activities such as Dune hang gliding and parasailing. Having a comfortable place to stay made our overall experience a great one. Definitely would recommend this Cottage.

Our home is located near milepost 8. Walking distance to the beach and many fine restaurants near by. The Outer Banks is a great place to create wonderful memories. Besides the beach and Ocean, you can go sailing, fishing kayaking, jet skiing, para sailing & more. Enjoy a hike up the largest sand dune on the east coast, Jockey's can also take a hang gliding lesson there ! A short drive will take you to 4-wheeling beaches among the wild horses or to the island of Ocracoke. Visit Manteo and see the Aquarium, the Elizabethan Gardens or shop historic downtown. Some great antique shops and outlet shopping too!

About 20 min. north on highway 158 is a wonderful antique collectible shop DANNY'S DISCOUNTS. It is a must stop !
