Kitty Hawk House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Tickled by the receding tide, seashells sing melodious songs,

Overhead, flocks of gulls glide effortlessly across the horizon,

Skies painted with amber, pink and orange delight the eye,

The endless ocean teases the senses as waves flaunt their snow-capped heads,

Valhalla, I am home.

Valhalla, named for the heavenly hall where Viking warriors found eternal peace, is a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Nestled in a quiet Kitty Hawk neighborhood one block from the ocean, this little paradise is a haven for families seeking the quiet calm of a beach retreat. This well-appointed beach cottage comfortably sleeps six providing an affordable vacation home for you and your family. A deck off the living room is a nice place to enjoy a steaming cup of coffee each morning or take a few steps to the upper deck. Here you can almost reach out and touch the sky while basking in the beauty of the partial ocean view. Direct beach access is a mere 3-minute walk from the house. Valhalla’s personal touches will instantly make you feel as though this Kitty Hawk paradise was designed just for you.

Make your plans to stay in this wonderful semi-oceanfront retreat. Valhalla is the perfect venue for rest and relaxation plus when you’re ready for shopping, first-class restaurants, fishing and entertainment, are minutes away. This is a great location for your next summer vacation! To make your travel a more relaxing experience, we provide bath towels and bed linens. In addition, we supply bed top covers and pillows.

We have renovated Valhalla to include, a dark, rich hardwood laminate floor throughout, beadboard in the living room, kitchen and the master bedroom, an updated kitchen with granite counter tops. And, best of all, keyless entry, with your own unique combination, means no losing keys during your stay!

About Jack Crimmins

My wife and I bought our beach house in the Fall of 2011. We wanted to have an escape from our busy lives in VA and decided the Outer Banks would be perfect. We have spent the better part of the last four months remodeling our 'little slice of heaven' and hope you will be able to find the peace and relaxation that we enjoy when we stay at Valhalla.

Jack Crimmins purchased this house in 2011

Why Jack Crimmins chose Outer Banks

This is a charming community that provides the visitor with a serene environment to relax while still in close proximity to everything a beach vacationer could want.

An amazing and relaxing retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We have just had an amazing experience in Kitty Hawk at Valhalla!

Jacks place is incredible. Tidy, roomy, relaxing - with everything you could possibly need to make your holiday a success.

We have two girls who fell in love with the place - to the stage that they did not want to leave the residence at all!

The decks and outdoor space are truly relaxing - and there are ample provisions provided for a great day on the beach. Kitchen and bedroom faculties are top notch also!

Would not hesitate at all in recommending this accomodation - we had such a wonderful time.

our stay in Kittyhawk

  • 4 of 5

I loved the house and the closeness of the beach - The only part I had a problem with was that I could not plug my dryer or curling iron in in the bathroom as there was no electricity in the plug in and we could not get the deck door to lock - - The place was clean

Owner's Response: The GFI tripped on the bathroom receptacle, sorry for the inconvenience. As for the sliding door lock, we have a pin lock at the top of the door and we also have board that we place in the track. We believe that these two methods of securing the door provide the best security.

Wonderfully clean and well equipped!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I loved our stay at Valhalla! The house was very clean and comfortable. There were plenty of dishes, etc in the kitchen.

The rooftop deck was wonderful. There were ample beach toys, chairs and a nice wagon to take everything on the short walk over the dune to the ocean.

Neighbor Chuck welcomed us and showed us around. We felt well taken care of and had a great time.

Lovely, Well-Stocked, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at Valhalla the week of Labor Day, and found the house to be perfect for a girl's getaway. The location is great - a block back from the beach, close to the grocery store, restaurants, etc. The house is spotless, super cute, and the couches in the living room are possibly the most comfortable couches I've ever sat on. The kitchen is well-stocked, and the owners have also stocked up on everything you need for the beach, from chairs to boogie boards, umbrellas to beach toys, and they have an amazing beach cart that makes it very easy to bring supplies to the beach. We spent quite a bit of time sunning ourselves on the rooftop deck due to Tropical Storm Hermine wiping out the beach/bringing in massive waves - the view from the deck is great, and it's quite comfortable to hang out up there. We also love that the house has a grill and a washer/dryer - those conveniences were really nice to have. Chuck, the neighbor across the street, is good friends with the owners - we ran into him several times and had very nice conversations with him. He's super nice, and available if you need anything. He also gave us these really cool prints of old maps of the Outer Banks when we were leaving, which we were all pretty excited about. I would definitely recommend renting Valhalla for a relaxing week in Kitty Hawk.

Valhalla Review

  • 4 of 5

A comfortable, clean, well equipped place; not fancy but functional in every respect. Well worth the money. Ocean view is a bit of an exaggeration, but if you really want ocean view you have to pay more.

The reason for 4 rather than 5 stars is that you have to deal with the Homeaway agency. A pain, in my experience. If I were the owner of this property I would find someone else to represent me.

Owner's Response: I appreciate your frustration with VRBO but they are the company that we have been using. We would ask that you not hold that against us in the future as we try to provide the best house possible for your vacation rental.

1st Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

As a single mom, this was the first time I was able to take my family on a vacation. I have 3 children, ranging in age from 9 to 25. We all loved our stay. The personal touches started with the welcome note and phone call we received upon our arrival. This home away from home was fully stocked with everything from yoga mats to an ice cream scooper and blender so milkshakes could be made by all! The beach was close enough that my son and I could go surf fishing in the evening, while my girls could stay "home" and talk and drink wine on the deck. I will definitely return when I am able to go on vacation again! Thank you Jack for helping create a wonderful experience for my family!!!
