The cottage is located right on the Beach Road in Kitty Hawk, NC between milepost 4.0 and 4.5 and is the perfect place if you are looking to relax and have a classic Outer Banks beach house experience. With this cottage, you are just steps away from the access is about a 200 foot walk to the corner! We have very quiet neighbors to the left, right, and behind us.
The cottage has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It comfortably sleeps 6 people, and there are plenty of extra spaces to the rooftop deck, the front deck, the back deck, the screened sun-porch, the back yard, or under the cottage. There is also an outdoor shower with hot/cold water, washer and dryer, fully stocked kitchen (fridge, oven, microwave, dishes, pots, pans, and silverware) to make home-cooked meals as well as Nutri-Bullet for cold drinks and a Keurig coffee maker. We also have a laundry room with washer and dryer available for your use.
This is a very comfortable beach cottage with amazing views of the ocean. Our cottage has vintage and unique furnishings, as well as more modern amenities such as 2 flat-screen TVs, 2 DVD players, cable, WiFi, and a retro Atari game system. Nautical decor is located throughout the cottage, and you will notice that there are board games, puzzles, and books located in almost every room and corner. The main room also has a large collection of DVDs for your viewing pleasure. Many of the guests who stay at this cottage have been been coming for over 20+ years, and many of them say that they love the "comfortable feeling" as well as how close the cottage is to the beach and the ocean views.
If there is only one thing you do if you stay with highly recommend you get up early, get some coffee, and watch the sunrise over the ocean from the rooftop deck. It is a memory not soon to be forgotten.
We also have a completely fenced-in backyard and well-behaved dogs are allowed on a case-by-case basis. Sorry, no cats. There will be an additional $100 fee to have a dog stay with you as we have to pay our cleaner additional money when a pet has been in the house to ensure the house is cleaned thoroughly. Please watch over your dog at all times so that they are safe and will not get into anything or destroy furniture or bedding. Also you will be responsible to pick-up after your dog.
We also have a small shed that has beach chairs, a beach umbrella, and assorted beach toys. Please feel free to use them during your stay!
The whole house, sun porch, decks, under the house, and backyard are the beach is right in front of the house. Beach access is about 200 feet from the driveway.
Access to the house is via a lockbox. We host this property remotely, so unfortunately we won't be there to greet you. You will have the privacy of your own home, but we are always available to answer your questions or assist you via text, email, or phone.
This is an older Outer Banks home and used to be the station keeper's house for Kitty Hawk Life Saving Station #7. It served as the living quarters for the station keeper and personnel and for many years was simply known as "The Station Keeper's House". In 1992 the owners changed its named to "Serendipity" and is has been called that ever since. Please note that many of the doorways are low.
The master bedroom is a decent size, but the other bedrooms are relatively small. There are no closets in any of the bedrooms, but there are dressers and areas to hang clothes. You will find that you live out on the decks when it is warm, or in the enclosed sun porch when it's rainy.
Please Note: We love our cottage, but like any home or place you stay will not be right for everyone. The cottage is very clean, full of character, comfort, and history. However, if you are looking for everything to be absolutely perfect, no imperfections anywhere, granite counter tops, and bamboo hardwood this home would probably not be a good fit for you. This is a clean, comfortable, and classic OBX beach house. If your looking to stay in a unique cottage, in a great beach town, and have a classic Outer Banks beach house this is the house for you.
You can't beat the beach view and how close the ocean is. Access to the beach is via the beach access point which is about 200 feet down the road. During the busier summer months you can sit out on the front deck and people-watch as cars and bikes go down beach road. There are year-round Outer Banks residents to the left, right, and behind our house and it is relatively quiet. On summer nights you can sometimes hear soft music being played from Hurricane Mo's (restaurant) which is about a 5 minute walk from the house. Another 5 minute walk from the house is another great restaurant called The Black Pelican. The house is walking distance to great restaurants, and a short driving distance to other restaurants, attractions, shopping, and all the Outer Banks has to offer.Get the full listing »
