To book our cottage you must have a photo with AirBnB, all credentials, phone number, email, and ID verified with AirBnB, and multiple positive reviews from other AirBnB hosts.

Serendipity cottage is an important piece of Outer Banks history. This cottage 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 is located right on the Beach Road in Kitty Hawk, NC between milepost 4.0 and 4.5. It 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 has a master bedroom with master bath, and additional bedrooms to spread out if you like. There is 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 and beach decor is located throughout the cottage, and you will notice that there are books, board games and puzzles in just about every room and corner...including a few Rubik's cubes laying around! 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 us.....we highly recommend you get up early, grab some coffee or tea, 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 $75 fee per dog to have a dog stay that will be requested via AirBnB prior to your stay. 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, or pay for any damage done to the home or furnishings by 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!

Please note that when you book your stay with us, you will receive a Rental Agreement that outlines the house rules in this AirBnB listing, and also indicates that if there is a mandatory evacuation of the island that the guest will receive a refund for any days that they could not use due to the evacuation.

Where you’ll be

Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, United States

We are located on Beach Road between mile marker 4.0 and 4.5 in Kitty Hawk. 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, and it stops playing by 10:00pm. 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 the Outer Banks has to offer.

We have been married since 2007 and have one child - our Doberman. We're outdoorsy types and love to hike, mountain climb, ski, kayak, and of course, go to the beach! We will both happily work the day-to-day job of making sure that you are comfortable and enjoying your time when you're at Serendipity OBX or Grizzly Cabin White Mountains. We want you to have your best vacation every time you come to stay. We are very familiar with the Outer Banks, and the White Mountains, and can give you recommendations for attractions, dinner, breakfast, hiking, skiing, or answer any questions that you may have. We will always be available to you. We're easily accessible via the Airbnb messaging system, as both of us receive notifications when a new message is sent to us, and usually respond within an hour.
