|Minimum Stay||4 - 7 nights|
Comfortable 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom beach cottage, with game room for those rainy days; located on N. Memorial Blvd, between the highways in Kill Devil Hills at Mile Post 8. Enjoy the open floor plan, updated kitchen with dishwasher and microwave, stereo with CD player, puzzles and books for a relaxing memorable vacation.
The cottage is centrally located where you can easily get to the Wright Brothers Museum, Outlet Mall, Manteo, Elizabethan Gardens, The Lost Colony Play, North Carolina Aquarium, Jockeys Ridge State Park, Bodie Island Lighthouse, Fishing Piers and Charter Boat Fishing. It’s just a short walk to the beach where there is public access and a life guard station with showers and restrooms, the Stop N Shop, and Dairy Queen.
The cottage has central air, 2 queen beds (master with bathroom attached, second bedroom), and two twin bunk bed sets that sleep 4 (third bedroom). A second bathroom with tub is across the hall from the third bedroom. There also is an enclosed outdoor shower with hot and cold water to wash off the sand and surf. There are boogie boards and beach toys at the cottage for your use.
For those rainy days or days you just want to stay in, there is cable TV with HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, and Encore and WiFi internet to stay connected. The game room downstairs is equipped with a pool table, 15 inch TV , foosball, some storage space and washer and dryer.
There are two decks, one covered and furnished where you can enjoy the breeze coming off the ocean, and one sun deck. Barbeque on the charcoal grill on the ground level and eat out on the picnic table located in the open area of the back deck.
Enjoyed our stay as always -love the proximity to the beach and the bright airy kitchen. Minor maintenance issues (bulbs, a few bugs, grill area a little rough), but nothing that would keep us from renting here in the future.
Most everything about this rental was true to the advertisement. The description was accurate regarding layout, location, and beach access, and check in was convenient. However, the cleanliness of the cottage was severely poor as was the water pressure in the showers. Bathrooms and showers had not been cleaned. Floors were very dirty and the bottoms of our feet stayed black from walking on the floors. When we moved the couch to have a better view of the TV, we found food and trash underneath. We killed three cockroaches in the kitchen and downstairs game room. Would not recommend this cottage to friends.
Just came home today from our week long stay.... I'll start with the positives. The location is perfect. A very short walk to the beach and near everything you need from grocery stores to restaurants. The house is nice. The bedrooms are an ok size. Not very large. Now the negatives. The house is not cleaned properly. The cleaning girl arrived at 340 and was gone by 415. She literally vaccummed only the main living area and did a super quick wipe down in the kitchen. The rest of the house seemed untouched. And still pretty dirty. We had to buy Clorox wipes and clean ourselves. The comforters and pillows are nit cleaned between renters so I suggest you don't use them and bring your own. The coffee pot was broken from day one and most of the kitchen supplies needed to be washed before using them. The back door lock was also broken so there is a wooden bar to place to prevent it from being opened from the outside. The walls are very very thin so if you are traveling with children others won't get to sleep now and if you are a light sleeper you will be disturbed by others.
Overall the stay was fantastic and with a little TLC and a better cleaning the house would be perfect. Again I loved the location. Beach was amazing all week!
Plenty of space and great location. Great cleaning crew too. When we arrived one doorknob was missing. We found it inside and it was nothing a simple screwdriver couldn't fix. But the cleaning crew advised the owner immediately and she was sending someone to fix it. Great communication on all parts. Had zero trouble or issues during our stay.
We were looking for a small house for our family of 4 and this met our needs. The house needs work and the stay would have been more comfortable if some basic repairs were done such as replacing broken DVD player and shower heads (outdoor shower is basically useless due to corroded shower head, shower head in one bathroom has no water pressure, so basically one working bath in the house). Also house wasn't particularly clean when we arrived and required some sweeping to get rid of sand in bathrooms. Also the stairs on the deck are pretty dangerous with many busted risers and protruding nails, so just a matter of time before someone falls through. Just watch your step
This property was perfect for our family's stay at the Outer Banks. Everything was as advertised. My kids loved the game room, and we all enjoyed the proximity to the beach, Wright Brothers Memorial, and other attractions in the area. Would definitely recommend and stay there again ourselves.
