About Ami Hill

Our family lives in Virginia Beach VA, just 80 miles North of the OBX! The lot and cottage were purchased by my Grandma and PawPaw in 1980 and it has been our family vacation home ever since and my favorite place in the whole world!

My father and I now own the property and are looking to rent our piece of the island to a few trust worthy families who can hopefully make the magic of the Outer Banks a family tradition for years to come!

Ami Hill purchased this cottage in 1980

Great family home, well equipped and close to the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great affordable family home in a nice neighborhood close to everything - especially the beach which is only 1 short block away! The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could possibly think of. There are 4 good size bedrooms with very comfortable beds and linens provided for your use. Charcoal and gas grills are available for use and there is plenty of outdoor space, both covered and uncovered for relaxing. Our boys especially enjoyed the outdoor pool table. The owners are great to work with. We definitely will book another week here next summer!

Great Place! Great Location!

I wanted to take this opportunity to say that our week in this cottage was absolutely amazing. We made many new memories and the kids could not be happier. Everyone enjoyed themselves to the fullest.

My family has stayed here 2 summers in a row. There is plenty of room for 3 boys and 3 couples to stay! There are bunk beds in one room for the kids and queen beds in the other rooms. One room opens up to the large deck. Super quick walk to the beach which is perfect for when you've forgotten something! The boys love the pool table and the grown ups love hanging out on the deck (in the screened portion when the sun is out!) with our coffee watching the sun come up. We will definitely stay again!

I began staying at this cottage as a child with my parents. My husband and I have made the OBX a yearly tradition for our own family....staying in this same cottage every year! It is super cozy and convenient to everything! It is extremely affordable, always clean...the owners are always a joy to deal with...our perfect little vacation spot! I look forward to many more vacations with our kids in this awesome cottage!!

Love It!

  • 5 of 5

Whenever we visit the Outer Banks-and we visit all the time - we stay here. It's comfortable and beachy. We love to sit on the deck after a day in the sun and relax. It's cozy inside and opens to the perfect beach just down the road. We're comfortable here and always wish we could stay longer.

There are many things to do, places to eat, and hotels to stay in during a vacation in Kill Devil Hills - from fast food to fine faire, fresh Seafood, Mexican, and Italian. You name it. There are many public beach accesses along Highway 12. Kill Devil Hills also offers a public bathhouse/lifeguard station with public restrooms located at the intersection of Virginia Dare Trail (Highway 12) and Ocean Bay Drive.

The Wright Brothers Memorial Shaft now sits atop the 90-foot tall "Big Kill Devil Hill" where the aforementioned legendary indulgences took place. Much of the Outer Banks was dominated by a chain of giant sand dunes, much like Jockey's Ridge State Park in Nags Head to the south. The dune where the Wrights made history was once one of these slowly migrating giants, until the federal government acted to memorialize Orville and Wilbur's achievement here with a national park. By the time grass was planted to stabilize the dune in the 1920's, and the 60 foot granite monument erected way up top, "Big Kill Devil Hill" had moved several hundred feet south over time, a natural process of the prevailing winds.

The rules are different out here. Shaped by nature just like the Outer Banks were swept from the Atlantic Ocean. The first colonists to settle the Americas only to mysteriously disappear. The first flight launched by two brothers, forever changing the trajectory of the human race. Cape Hatteras National Seashore, the first national seashore of its kind, complete with rolling sand dunes and menagerie of wildlife. And still today, after hundreds of years, the Outer Banks has a way of changing people and opening their eyes to new experiences and passions in historic North Carolina. For sure, there are many firsts still yet to come. But for now, take a step into the past and experience the history that helped make this place a true original.
