Great location

  • 3 of 5

At first look everything looks clean until you settle in. The pots and pan were greasy and the top of one of the refrigerators was yellow with dirt. We were going to cook most of our meals but after seeing the condition and lack of supplies of the 2 kitchens, we ate out every meal. Need a new cleaning service.

The house could be very nice with a few updates. We all received splinters from the deck and handrails plus cuts from the nails coming up in the deck. The window coverings didn't fit some of the windows and the fans need some work to quiet them.

Owner's Response: It is very difficult to do a thorough clean on Saturday turn overs. All 4 of our houses get a "mini spring" clean every month. Crabs had that clean after you left because you left the house trashed. Didn't empty refrig trash obviously didn't use the vac because the place was coated with dog hair, and your sons even broke a bed frame but your Security Deposit was mailed back to you in full on the Monday after you left. The kitchens are very well stocked and this house has 11 families that come each year.

Lovely ocean views

  • 4 of 5

Me and the family had a wonderful stay at the crab house. The house was clean and exactly as seen in the photos. My only criticism is that their were no comfortable deck chairs. Ideally we would have liked high wood chairs to sit and watch the waves without the deck rails in our way. Overall very nice experience.

Owner's Response: Great suggestion! I will add that to my improvement list for 2018 you may have to draw straws probably only do 4 they are expensive......Bought 4 orange highbacks today will put them on the deck this Saturday 8/5/17!

Love Kitty Hawk, and the location on the beach between piers

  • 4 of 5

I love walking the beach for sunrise and it was great to just walk out of the house and be on the beach. Living areas and kitchens are a bit small but there are two of both of them if you need them. We only had four people at the time so it was great for us. And we ate out every meal. The deck is really nice overlooking the beach and ocean. It was also great for our dogs to go out and watch people go by. It's not close to a big public area and the timing (before schools are out) was perfect for the beach not being crowded near the house.

Owner's Response: The beach is never crowded in front of this home as there is no public parking for over 1 mile.

Owner's Response: We try very hard to have our tenants really enjoy our home. We have 4 Oceanfront homes in Kitty Hawk and always strive to keep them current with upgrades and because we live here we can respond to any questions or issues in a timely manor. So glad your experience was a 5 star!

Kitty Hawk in front of home
Car: necessary

Located in Historic Kitty Hawk where the Wright Brothers took the first motorized flight! Not only are the beaches beautiful here but Kitty Hawk is low density so the beaches are not as crowded as in Nags Head and Kill Devil Hills. There are some great restaurants close by along with the NC Aquarium and the Lost Colony Theater
