The space
Welcome to Live Swell Beach Bungalows. Here our guests refresh from reality while enjoying elements of coastal living and the laid-back surf lifestyle.

All of our boutique rentals feature:
•Linens + Bath Towels
•Gas Grill
•Private Outdoor Shower
•Most essential beach gear
•Beach Cruiser style bicycles
•CatchSurf brand boogie boards + surfboards

We are passionate about the beach, coastal living and the opportunity to share the lifestyle we love so much with our guests.

Our "Salt Box" style beach bungalow was built in 1982, is 950 square feet and features a loft. It sits on a private cut of property in a safe cul de sac with mostly year round residents.

The space is ideal for:
•Couples
•Small active families or groups of friends
•5 people comfortably, 6 people if ya'll get along well
 
Since we have had the Bungalow we have completed a lot of upgrades to the home that many of our guests love.  The large outdoor shower with an oversized rain-shower head is highly refreshing on hot summer days and feels amazing after the beach. On the right days and at the right times, the french doors open up completely to the front deck which adds an airy flow and the feel of and indoor-outdoor living space. The kitchen was themed with a distressed nautical look, open cabinets and contains most of the necessities for a chef.  Our favorite hang out area is the great room, which has an open set up, vaulted ceilings and a "BigAss" Brand Haiku Fan, which, feels hypnotic like the soft drone of a helicopter propeller.

To us, a very clean bungalow is of the utmost importance for our guests upon arrival. In fact, our bungalows have always had very high cleanliness standards and though cleaning + inspection process. Recently, we have taken our cleaning process to the next level by implementing recommended CDC guidelines. Between each guest stay our beach bungalows are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized with EPA approved disinfectants on surfaces and common touch points.

Guest Favorites:
From starting the day rocking on the front deck with a piping hot morning coffee or chilling out and grilling in the backyard, here’s what our guests say they loved:
•The Front Deck and hammock
•The Big Backyard with picnic table and grill (*not fully fenced)
•Dog Friendly! (See about bringing your pet)
•The feeling of safety from a family friendly cul de sac
•The neighborhood

Other things to note
***We do kindly ask that all potential guests read the entire description before requesting to book***

We love our OBX bungalow, it's a great house yet, like most homes it is not perfect and not for everyone. We respect that folks have different preferences and world views. If your looking for a unique place and local experience in a great beach town to relax, spend time with loved ones, chill out, cook and rest your head after the beach then the bungalow checks all the boxes. If you're seeking a perfect, flawless home or are super high maintenance, this is not the place for you.

Bringing your dog?
We love dogs and are happy to have your four legged friends and family members at our bungalows. Just let us know you are bringing your dog and the pet fee is:
•$25 per night per dog (Please ask if you have more than one dog)

Book today to ensure your reservation, before another guest does! :)

Check Out Etiquette: We put a lot of time and effort to deliver great stays for our guests. If we find deliberate damage, disrespect or lack of cleanliness during the check out inspection, you will be charged fee's to compensate our cleaners and ensure the property is ready for guests.

Location

Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, United States

We are located in the "First Flight Village" just north of the Wright Brothers Memorial, in a peaceful court mostly occupied by year round local residents.
You can take a short 3/4 mile bike ride with a beach cruiser to First Street beach access, stores or a ride on the Sound path (best during sunset time). There is parking at the 1st St. beach access.

During the right times of the year, sea turtles do nest in the beach out front, you can find large shells (like Whelks) and the surfing in the area can be epic at times! The OBX is known as the east coast "Wave Magnet."

There is a Food Lion and Publix supermarket, pizza, Bagel-Coffe shop and more just off 1st St - about 1/3rd of a mile from the place.

We are an active and curious couple, Michael + Maria, that loves to travel, live life by the beach, meet interesting people, learn and Yes, surf whenever possible. We believe there is something magical about spending time in coastal regions and we hope you do to! With a passion for coastal living and some experience in renovation properties Maria and I decided to rehab an old bungalow to its original charm. We knew we would spend time there with our family and friends, because we love the area and the place, but did not realize how much our guests would love it or the impact it could have. We have had so much fun and become very passionate about creating memorable guest stays, unique experiences and making more of an impact. Since our first bungalow we have grown to cover both coasts and add more places to stay. The “original” Live Swell Beach Bungalow, The Chill Beach and Surf Bungalow, is still available for rent in the OBX today. Our favorite time of year in the OBX is the fall + late spring when the weather is beautiful, the fishing is great, crowds are down and the surfs up. As hosts: We am super easy going, we respect our guest privacy but may stop in to say hello As guests: Super laid back and low maintenance Favorite Destinations: Outer Banks NC, San Diego, California, Baja Mexico, Guancaste Costa Rica, Spain, Peru, Long Island NY. Things we could not live without: 1. Good friends and family relationships 2. A beach house, grill, fireplace, outdoor shower and surfboards What makes this our LiveSwell Bungalows unique? Commitment to our guests to do the right thing, chic upgraded bungalows, laid-back surf lifestyle feel, beach amenities, local vibe and rad locations.
