About Mindy, Wes, & Sara Brubaker

After all the kids went to college, My husband and I moved to the East Coast from Missouri. We have children in North Carolina, Oklahoma, and Colorado. We fell in love with the Outer Banks on our first trip down and haven't looked back since. It's our favorite place to go to unwind, catch up with friends and spend some time with the family.

Mindy, Wes, & Sara Brubaker purchased this house in 2007

Why Mindy, Wes, & Sara Brubaker chose Outer Banks

After falling in love with the Outer Banks, we began the search for a second home in the area. The location of our beach cottage combined with the interior charm was the main reason we purchased it. With a lifeguard stand less than 100 yards away, it's the perfect location for families traveling with small children. We love to sit on the deck and watch the sunrise beside Avalon Pier. The extra parking at Hayman is great when we have friends and family over for BBQ's and beach days. We've worked hard to improve this property since we purchased it and have added many upgrades including all new flat screen TV's and new appliances. We hope you love our beach cottage as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

The views from Good Vibrations are second to none. With expansive ocean views from the living room, you can enjoy those rare rainy days at the beach and not even miss out on the spectacular ocean views. The dining room and kitchen also boast floor to ceiling views of the beach right outside. One of our favorite pastimes is to enjoy a morning cup of coffee and watch the dolphins swim and play up and down the beach.

Good Vibrations...Great.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed Saturday to Saturday, 04.08 to 04.15/17. Really enjoyed the stay and the house is great. We stayed with our two dogs and spent a lot of time walking on the beach. They have a hose on the deck to hose them off and dry them - very pet friendly house. We go to the Outer Banks every year for my wife's spring break and this place is really a great location...close to everything. We always pack extra blankets and sheets to cover the furniture, etc., but the owners even have a tote in the downstairs bedroom to cover the furniture. We covered everything and washed and dried them Saturday morning before we left (we're early risers). Sweeper worked well and house has pretty much everything you need: washer, dryer, oven, microwave, crock pot, pots, pans, etc...very well stocked. We would like to stay again next year, but we need to go back to Sunday to Sunday (in lieu of Sat. To Sat)...I'll check with the owner this Fall to see if that is possible for next year...Sunday is a much better traveling day, and we drive 11 hours. Oh, one last thing which I really appreciated: great instructions for TVs, WiFi, restaraunt recommendations, them first thing to make your life easier. Great job and wonderful house, owners!

Fanastic ocean front location in a great area with lots to do!

  • 5 of 5

The house is gorgeous with a picturesque setting right outside of the window. The owner was friendly, accomodating, and ensured that we had everything that we needed for our stay. This would be a great location for a family large or small looking for a great ocean view.

Can't beat the location!

  • 5 of 5

True oceanfront - not even a sand dune between you and the water! Can't beat the convenience of being about to go back and forth to the beach and house. House was well appointed, beds were comfortable, kitchen fully stocked with utensils/pots/pans/dishes, great washer/dryer, and beach chairs were a bonus. It was just two of us and our dog, and could not have been a more perfect house and fantastic location. We loved every minute we were there. We will be back again!

Our beach cottage is located in the heart of Kill Devil Hills. Conveniently close to shopping, restaurants and of course, the beach! The Wright Brothers Memorial is located just a 5 minute drive from the cottage. Climb up the top of Kill Devil Hill and you'll enjoy views from the Atlantic Ocean to the Albemarle Sound. You can really see why the Outer Banks is such a unique place from this perspective.

Avalon Pier is located less than a quarter of a mile away, perfect for anglers looking for the catch of a lifetime.

Our home is located directly in front of a popular surf spot. The best time for surf is September and October. The beaches and water are still warm but the crowds have gone home and the swell tends to be better than any other time of the year.

From 'Good Vibrations' you can walk to Brew Thru, numerous restaurants and the SeaGate Shopping Center where you'll find a produce stand, a Mexican restaurant and some fabulous shops.
