About the property

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 are continually renovating Valhalla to provide you with the most comfortable stay possible. We also provide keyless entry, with your own unique combination, which 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 spent the better part of 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 Kitty Hawk

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.

Valhalla -- Kitty Hawk Beach House with Ocean View.
average rating of 4.921875 based on 128 reviews

Valhalla is the appropriate name for this home.

  • 5 of 5

This home has everything you could want in a rental property. Location, location and location with all the comforts of your own home. Right in the middle of Kitty Hawk one block from Beach Road. The ocean is visible from the upper deck. Walk about half a block North, turn right and walk one block to Beach Road. There is a marked crosswalk to cross Beach Road and a path up and over the dunes. They even provide some beach equipment and a buggy to transport your stuff to the water.

Valhalla has provided everything you will need except food. Three bedrooms and a combined family, dining and kitchen area with all the necessary cooking items. They also provide linens and towels for the beds, liquid soap in both bathrooms and the kitchen, dishwashing soap, soap for the dishwasher and clothes washer downstairs along with drier sheets. They also provide paper towels and some Beach towels. The next time we visit we will certainly pack a lot less stuff - it is all there!

Great property. Great location. Spotless. EVERYTHING except clothes and food was provided.

  • 5 of 5

The weather was rainy, cold, gusting winds; a friend who was to join us instead got a cast and crutches; and we received a call about a death in the family that cut our trip a bit short and we still had wonderful vacation. This was our 1st VRBO experience. The owner walked me through technology issues I had with reservations. When we arrived, the neighbor across the street who cleans this property, was available and informative. This neighbor is a real gem. The property description said only clothing and food needed to be brought. However, because we had to take paper goods, towels, linens, kitchen "things", etc for a Myrtle Beach rental property that our daughter-in-law had reserved this past summer, we again packed all those things. We quickly realized all of those items were already present and available at Valhalla. We can't wait to return to the Outer Banks and will hopefully be able to stay at Valhalla on future trips. Oh, and the place at Myrtle was more expensive and dirty. Our son's family arrived there ahead of us and d-i-l spent the better part of the day cleaning and making that house presentable. Valhalla was spotless, well stocked, and a great value for our money. The property is conveniently located with great restaurants nearby and easy access to going north or south on 12. I highly recommend this property.

wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

One word to describe the trip...WOW. From making the reservations back in April to multiple email exchanges with the owner Jack this was almost effortless on my part. As far as the house goes, it was plenty big for my wife and I to enjoy our anniversary and there were 2 other bedrooms so this would definitely fit a full size family. The residence was extremely clean and welcoming everything you needed (except the groceries) to prepare meals right on site and there was a grocery store about 2 miles away to stock up at. The house is about a block and half from a walk over beach access the swinging hammock chairs were a favorite of my wife's as she would get up in the morning grab a cup of coffee (they provided the coffee maker and filters) and go on the deck and sit in the swinging chairs and listen to the ocean. Due to being off season not a lot of other people or traffic to have to fight through to get a spot on the beach nor any of the restaurants that we tried. Would definitely recommend this rental to anyone as it is centrally located to several attractions such as the Wright's Brothers Memorial, The Currituck Lighthouse, the Bodie Island Lighthouse and the wild horses of Corolla. Again if you are looking for a place to rent in Kitty Hawk please look no further than Valhalla.

Loved this cute cottage

  • 5 of 5

Brought the family down for a long weekend to celebrate my husband’s birthday. What a cute cottage! Awesome views from the top deck and a quick walk to the beach. We loved all the board games and played a few games on the Wii. The kitchen had all of our needs covered and there were even sand toys available- which were helpful when hunting for shells. We loved being so close to everything! We will definitely recommend Valhalla to our friends. We hope to return soon!!!

October surprise!

  • 5 of 5

We are annual visitors of outer banks. We have never come down this late in he year. At the last minute we decided to take a short trip. As you can see by the reviews this was a hidden gem. This owner provides bed linens, bath towels, also if you should need virtually anything beach related. The house is the cleanest we have ever stayed in. He truly has thought of anything you could need to make your stay more comfortable. Very quaint. Nice area. Nice beach access too. Will definately be back.
