Serendipity OBX: Cottage in Kitty Hawk With An Ocean View  

Serendipity OBX. Serendipity is a historic cottage in Kitty Hawk / Outer Banks. 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 ocean... beach access is about a 200 foot walk to the corner! We have very quiet neighbors to the left, right, and behind us.

The Cottage. The cottage has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms..each bathroom has a shower. It comfortably sleeps 6 people, and there are plenty of extra spaces to hang-out....on 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. 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 Neighborhood. We are located on Beach Road between mile marker 4.0 and 4.5 in Kitty Hawk. You can't beat the beach view, how close beach access is, and it's location to great restaurants and attractions. Access to the beach is via the beach access point which is about 200 feet at the corner. The cottage has year-round residents that live on both sides, and behind it and it is relatively quiet. You can sit out on the front deck and people-watch as cars and bikes go down beach road. On some nights you can sometimes hear music being played softly 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 cottage is a short driving or bike ride distance to other restaurants, attractions, shopping, and all the the Outer Banks has to offer.

A Must Do! If there is only one thing you do if you stay with us.....we 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 Are Dog Friendly! 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.

Are We A Good Match For You? We love our cottage, but like any home or place you stay will not be right for everyone. The cottage is very clean....and is full of character, comfort, and Outer Banks history. However, if you are looking for everything to be absolutely imperfections anywhere, granite counter tops, bamboo hardwood floors, marble tile....then 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 with amazing ocean views, in a great beach town, and have a classic Outer Banks beach house experience....then this is the house for you!
