**Please note that several cities in the Outer Banks underwent sand replenishment in 2017. Kitty Hawk was on that list. Once this process is started, we have been told replenishment updates will happen occasionally over the following five years. We are not told the schedule. Sand replenishment MAY close the beach directly in front of the house for a few days, if repairs are needed. There is no way to determine what these dates may be. Luckily, the Outer Banks has miles of beaches and as work is done, only a small section (500ft - 1000 ft) will be closed at a time, as the crews work down the beach. It is our understanding that the work crews work 24 hours a day, as to not close any section the beach longer than necessary. There are miles and miles of beaches in OBX and many ways to access them. There are multiple access points that are walkable from the house, if the one directly in front of the house is closed.

                                                                    NatUnited States

                                                                    We spent a week with two of our children and their children - 14 in all. Every one of us LOVED the house! The remodeling is,beautiful, a tasteful blend of history and modern conveniences. We used the two large porches continually -a place for the kids to eat (when four of them weren't up in the captain's overlook) - or for all of to read, talk on the swings, or just look at the ocean. Loved the little touches - the hose to clean off our feet on the main floor porch (besides two very clean showers on the ground level); baskets or bookcases with all kinds of books to read; a tv in nearly every bedroom; and the kids loved having their own second floor all to themselves. The kitchen was well-stocked, with plenty of room for many of us to gather in. It was a quick walk to a very lovely beach, which was never really crowded whatever time we came. We've rented beach houses at the Outer Banks for many years,and this is by far our favorite!

                                                                    We love it here!

                                                                    JoAnne M.

Our son is in college in NC, we pick him up for break and vacation here. The best! Great memories being made. The owners are very nice to work.with. I would highly recommend staying here.

                                                                    A perfect location and very much history.

                                                                    Great Memorial Day get away!

                                                                    My family and I had a wonderful long weekend over the Memorial Day holiday. Kitty Hawk Lifesaving Station No. 7 afforded us the opportunity to have unobstructed views from the deck of the ocean. We saw dolphins and were entertained by the diving pelicans while relaxing on the deck. A short walk over the dunes and you are on the beach. The grandchildren enjoyed the pool a lot as well. We will definitely rent this property again.

                                                                    Gorgeous Home! Excellent location.

                                                                    The home is gorgeous and well appointed. Homeowner is very responsive and helpful. Our kids loved the bunk room. The home is great for multiple families and has tons of space and charm. Kitty Hawk is great fun. Lots of things to do and very good places to eat.

                                                                    Well preserved and worth another weekend in 12 months.

Emptied it into a wheeled cart to go onto the street and P.U. Have no idea what the brown was in the bottom of the can, but it had me heaving.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

Huge deck with 180 degree views. House is on old beach road... literally cross the street to the beach. Unobstructed views. Walking distance to John's Drive In and the Black Pelican! Close to area attractions. This house is the best of both worlds...the old beach feel...but yet close to amenities.
