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 Kill Devil Hills

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. 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.

Great Place for a Fall/Spring Visit

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here twice now. Once in the Spring and once in the Fall. It's a great location. Close enough to shops and restaurants but far enough from the hustle and bustle you feel like you have the beach to yourself especially in the mornings and evenings. The kitchen is nicely stocked with lots of appliances you don't think you'll need but it's sure nice to have like crockpot, wafflemaker, and blender. On chilly days, we enjoying curling up on the couch and watching a movie with views of the ocean! And the gates on the deck are perfect for letting out dog hang outside. We hope to be back again!

This house was perfect for us and our dog. Very clean with nice whitewashed , beachy decor, bright and airy with the ocean as our back yard. Loved the porch and direct beach access. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. Highly recommend .

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

It was our family's first time in the OBX and we had a great week at this house! Kids enjoyed playing at the beach and we saw many of the OBX sights. Plenty of space and comfortable accommodations. Will miss my deck chair spot!! Thanks for a great time and hope the next renters enjoy the nice boogie boards we left behind 😊

Wonderful Family House

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this beach house. It was clean and the kitchen was well stocked! The views are wonderful! Had a rainy day but it didn't matter we sat in the living room playing board games, watching movies and enjoying watching the storm move over the ocean. Nice to be able to cook and still be a part of the family gathering with the open layout. Our kids took the upstairs rooms which gave my husband and I privacy in the downstairs master. We will definitely stay here again if we come back to this beach.

Loved it, we will be back!

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed the home, the view was amazing and the house was better than the pictures showed. Everything worked really well and the owners had box fans already available for us to use...that was a life saver for us we sleep with fans on.

So many little extras, the hand soap, dish soap, dishes, pots/pans, crock pot and wifi, cable and the games and books were awesome. My kids loved the couch said it was so comfortable and I have to find out where you purchased they would love one for home!

I loved watching the sunrise from the deck every morning the sun was visible and at night the calming sounds of the sea were fabulous as you sat out on the deck with teh breeze it was heavenly.

I am so glad this was avialable for our week, it was a wonderful place to stay for our family vacation. I am going to try and book this again, but for 2 weeks next time...such a wonderful time.

Great house! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Great home for two families. Spent week with daughter's family. Loved having separate space. Full bath and two bedrooms upstairs perfect for daughter's family. My husband and I could get up and have coffee without waking kids. Loved having washer and dryer! Beautiful view.

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.
