OBX is open! Come enjoy the beach and enjoy a happy and safe time! This adorable and beachy apartment will be your sanctuary! Owned by a traveling yoga teacher & surfer, you will enjoy the holistic and eco-friendly touches that encourage mindfulness and simple living. Designed to inspire you, this is a wonderful place to appreciate every moment. Convenient location! A short walk to the beach and dining! Great for work from home and longer stays! Sparkling clean!

The space
We've all been stuck inside for too long, come enjoy the beach! My cleaners and I have three years of Superhost experience and a reputation for being sparkling clean. More details on our COVID-19 precautions, but first let's start with the fun details.

Share good vibes, sleep well and embrace beach bliss in my surf boho style apartment, located beneath my house with its own private entrance and parking.

As a yoga teacher and traveler, I have designed this space to share my simple and holistic lifestyle to inspire you to live your best life. The space is a retreat to feel relaxed, renewed and truly blissful.

There's a living room with a queen-sized sofa/futon (it's very comfortable with 8-inch thick mattress and can sleep 1-2 people) and 32-inch TV. We do not provide cable, but there's Netflix. Kitchen has a full-size fridge, sink, microwave, toaster oven, french press coffee maker, electric kettle, and dishware/household items. No stove, but an electric skillet is provided. There's a dining area (large table for playing provided board games) and a large master bedroom and bath with a queen-size bed. The bright bathroom has a full-size tub/shower and is equipped with hairdryer and flat iron (I got you, girl!).

There's a shared laundry room with the upstairs unit with Washer/Dryer if needed. Also shared with the upstairs unit is a large, outdoor shower (you will love OBX outdoor showers!) and a large, shaded fenced in back yard.

I provide yoga mats and two beach chairs. I provide two beach cruisers, which are fine for my beach life standards, but if you want something nicer a rental shop is nearby. I provide bath towels, bedding/sheets/blankets, and 1 roll of toilet paper and paper towels and hand and dish soap to get you started. If you need to buy more paper products, toiletries or anything else during your stay, you can walk Walgreens just 1/2 block away! See COVID-19 details for special tips on what to bring.

We do things a little differently than your traditional vacation rental. We take precautions to reduce waste, such as a providing a Brita water filter instead of plastic bottles and providing recycle bins. We wash linens using natural laundry soap and offer you natural amenities, such as natural hand and dish soap an shampoo and conditioner. Many houses stock up at the dollar store for cheap soaps and amenities that can be thrown away between changeovers. Imagine how this impacts the environment and creates unnecessary waste. I believe in responsible travel and do my best to make this part of your experience. My approach to hosting is very personal and intentional, and I am not just sharing an investment with you, I'm sharing my way of life with you. My hope is that you will enjoy these eco friendly, healthy and socially responsible touches and be inspired to use them in your own home.

COVID-19 precautions: We follow the CDC and Airbnb guidelines for cleaning and disinfecting. We provide sheets and towels, but feel free to bring your own if you that makes you comfortable and let us know. We have always used waterproof pillow and mattress protectors to prevent stains, allergens, germs and bedbugs. IMPORTANT: groceries and supplies on the island are in short supply. It will help if you bring your own paper products and some groceries with you, ensuring fair prices and availability to the struggling locals who live here. Please review your check out instructions to do your part.

I am not always there to run things in person (my friends help me), but I am still happy to get to know you on social media if you say hello and become acquainted!



*When booking, please ensure you list the correct number of guests (do not list as "1 guest" if you plan to bring your family).*

Guest access
The apartment is a separate unit underneath the main unit upstairs, where the owner (or other AirBnB guests, see my other listing!) reside. Please keep this in mind, as you may hear footsteps or activity above you. You will have private access to the full apartment downstairs and shared access to laundry room and outdoor shower (available seasonally). There's a driveway with two parking spaces on the right side just for AirBnB guests in this unit. There's also a shared fenced-in, shaded backyard with fire pit and swings hanging from the large oak trees, very peaceful. Feel free to pick up some fire wood from a convenience store and build a bonfire.

Other things to note
Responsible travel - I maintain an eco-friendly home offering tourists a way to travel responsibly to respect the nature of our beautiful islands. When possible, I choose eco-friendly, natural and chemical-free household products and cleaners. Please turn off lights when you are not home, keep the AC/Heat at a reasonable level, recycle using the bin provided, and be sure to leave the beaches clean and free of litter. Enjoy your visit and leave OBX with killer karma!

Location

Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, United States

The house surrounded by climbable live oak trees in a quiet neighborhood, just 7-10 minutes walk to the beach at milepost 9 by Martin Street. We are just across the highway next to Walgreens in Kill Devil Hills. The house is tranquil and backs into woods, so there's no traffic noise and lots of trees. This is a very good location and central, you can walk to restaurants, ice cream, pizza, gift shops and bars! The neighborhood backs up to sand dunes, a local secret spot for the best sunset view of the island. For parks, the apartment is walking distance to the Kill Devil Hills Arboretum, Nags Head Woods and the Wright Brother's Memorial.

I am a chill beach girl - happy, positive, and free spirited. I enjoy being outdoors, making friends, and my work - writing, teaching yoga and teaching/performing circus arts. I have an AirBnb rental in Outer Banks, North Carolina, which allows me to be off traveling the world. My Airbnb spaces reflect my holistic surf and yoga lifestyle with an aim that my guests find tranquility and inspiration experiencing simple island life. I believe in good travel karma. I create amazing experiences for my guests and find that positive energy comes back to me in my own personal travels. As a guest, I often travel to warm places to find surf and yoga/dance training. I usually teach yoga where I end up for a while! I'm solo, so it's nice if hosts want to be friendly and hang out or introduce me to friends. But I'm also independent and can keep myself entertained. I'm responsible and mature, but I also enjoy a bit of nightlife and dancing! I'm super clean and my rental properties are fresh and updated. As a guest in someone's home, I'm respectful and thoughtful. Life motto: Just go!

During your stay
I'm really chill and love traveling and travelers! I'm usually happy to socialize with guests, but most likely I will be traveling during your visit.

Whether I am personally at the house or traveling, I am just a text away and my friend, Cindy, is local and helps me co-host. My mom is also part of the hosting crew online!

I have lived in OBX longterm and am happy to share all the local hot spots and secrets with you!

I also have 10-years of experience teaching meditation, yoga and holistic healing and can offer you online instruction or inspiration during these difficult emotional times. I designed my Airbnb to feel like a nurturing home that shares my holistic lifestyle. It's not an investment for quick profit, it's my passion and a way to help people live happier!
