The House With Red Shutters is such a wonderful beach cottage it will be my go to vacation spot in the Outer Banks from now on. It's spacious, clean, cozy, and seconds to the beach. The hosts are beyond welcoming and the location is perfect. You can grill out in the yard, bike ride to a number of delicious restaurants or just relax on the porch. Ask Wayne for restaurant and food recommendations, he knows his stuff!

If you're planning a trip to the Outer Banks, the Red Shutter House is the place to stay. It's a comfy, clean and cozy cottage. Walk across the street to the beach, outdoor shower, beautiful yard and really great hosts! The stay was perfect and we'll definitely look to stay at the House with the Red Shutters again!

This lovely cottage was our home away from home for our first trip to OBX. You can feel the history and authenticity of the place while surrounded by cosy beach comfort. Our favourite spot was the front porch. A lovely place to relax after a day at the beach or dinner out. You are only a block from the beach here but the house is quiet and peaceful. Wayne was super generous with his insider tips for places of interest to visit and spots to eat. Invaluable. This was a perfect vacation spot for us and we couldn't recommend it more highly.

We loved our 4-night stay in this vintage style cottage, and can't wait to return! Very clean, cozy, charming, and just across the street from the sand and the waves -- it was everything we wanted in a vacation spot. A keypad lock for the front door means no key pick-up/drop-off or having to take a key to the beach with you. Cleaning off the sand and salt was easy in the enclosed outdoor shower. We loved sitting in the rockers on the porch with our coffee, admiring the lovely sunflower garden. The kitchen was well-stocked with all the supplies we needed -- plates, glasses, cups, utensils, cutting boards and knives, a fridge with icemaker, coffee pot and ground coffee from a local roaster. Lots of beach towels are provided, and there is a laundry room with washer and dryer. Upstairs, there's a super comfy queen bed, and the bedroom stays nice and cool with the wall AC unit and two ceiling fans. Wayne and Lynn are delightful hosts, very friendly, welcoming, and knowledgeable about the area. Ask them to tell you about the photos on the living room wall of the cottage! This is the perfect place for one or two guests to enjoy a peaceful, relaxing stay, with the ocean just a short walk away, and plenty of amenities and attractions easily reached by bike or car. We love the House with Red Shutters.

My husband and I had a wonderful time in Wayne and Lynn's lovely home. Very clean and cozy, great patio, full-size kitchen, and best of all, right across the street from the beach. We had a great stay!

Highly recommend the House with the Red Shutters for an OBX getaway. Wayne greeted us in the home when we arrived and showed us around the cottage. It’s clean and is well stocked with coffee, all the kitchen tools you’d need to cook meals, towels and bikes. We had another opportunity to talk to Wayne and heard a bit of background on this newly refinished cottage. It’s in a great location – the public beach access is across the street and there’s a one-stop-shop a three minute walk away that had all the last minute items we needed. If we have an opportunity for a quick getaway again, we’d check to see if this cottage is available first.

Hi There, Wayne & I ( along with our 2 daughters) would love to welcome you to our back cottage! We find nothing more relaxing & fun than walking across the street to enjoy the beach & all it has to offer! We have owned the cottages for 17 years . We take much pride in maintaining & preserving some Outer Banks history. Our cottages are on the Kill Devil Hills Historic Landmark Commission. They are nothing fancy but, provide a lot of old school charm! Come make some memories. ( We live in the front one & rent the back one).
