About this listing

Hear the sea breeze in the cedar trees, take in the clean ocean air and enjoy all the treasures of the Outer Banks while visiting the Chill Beach & Surf Bungalow. You'll live the OBX lifestyle and feel like a local resident at our central location and spacious back yard that are safe and private. Imagine the tranquility you will feel, like us, as you drift away into a mellow mood in the relaxing and cozy bungalow. Best after a beach day, surf or to enjoy a tasty summer grill session.

The space

This beach house was built in 1982 as a 950 sqft beach bungalow that includes a second level loft. It sits on a private and decent cut of property in a safe cul de sac. The space is ideal for a small group of friends, a couple or a family. While 5 guests seem to be ideal we can accommodate up to 6 people.

Since we have had the Bungalow we have completed a lot of upgrades to the home that our guests love. The large outdoor shower with exposed galvanized pipe and oversized rain-shower head is soothing and feels amazing after the beach. When the weather is right for it, the french doors open up completely to the front deck which add an airy flow and the feel of and indoor-outdoor living space. The kitchen was themed with a Nautical look, open cabinets and contains most of the necessities for the group chefs.

Our favorite hang out area is the living room because it has an open set-up, vaulted ceilings and a BigAss Haiku Fan - which feels like a a hypnotic helicopter propeller.

Another guest favorite is the bungalow's outdoor space. Whether it's starting the day rocking away on the front deck with a piping hot morning coffee or chilling out and grilling in our backyard, the bungalow has the perfect outdoor living space to enjoy those amazing sunny OBX days. Your kids and four legged friends will love the big back yard and you'll also love the safety that being in a family friendly cul de sac brings.

This was my family's first stay in Kill Devil Hills. The area is just as described in being very family-oriented, and within minutes to the beach. The house had all the conveniences needed for our stay. There were a few issues that Michael, once made aware, worked quickly to resolve. Looking forward to staying again in the future. ** I HIGHLY recommend staying in any of Michael's rentals due to the outstanding support he provides. **

Michael's place was perfect for my friends and I to spend the weekend in the Outer Banks. We came here for a weekend of surf and relaxation and that's what we got. The place is clean, quiet and comfortable. Recommended!

Just perfect! My family of 5 had a blast visiting the Outer Banks and we could not have asked for a better place for the price. Very clean, roomy, accommodating and communication was phenomenal. The provided directional house book was very informative and also appreciated. I must add that as an active duty member Michael graciously offered a discount (he didn't have to) which helped tremendously. The location is a short distance from the beach, close to various adventures and shops and quiet. Thank you again Michael for the awesome service and allowing us to stay at your residence. I will definitely look you up during my next travels to the area. -Shane Walker

We had a great stay at this chill cottage! It was super close to both the beach and the sound, and easy to get to shops and attractions (including a walkable mini golf course that was fun). We had a really fun time and would definitely stay here again!

Loved the chill beach bungalow! Just what we needed for a beach weekend. It's a small house (especially bedrooms are very small), but the yard is awesome and the location is perfect for a beach vacation! We just loved it!

A great place to stay at a good value. Essentials covered, a bonus was the nice outdoor shower. A bit of a walk to the beach but the bikes at the home made it an easy trip. Great backyard for a bbq!

Response from Michael:
Thanks Kyle - we love the rain shower head and BBQ to.

I am a active and curious person that loves to travel, enjoy surfing, live by the beach and learn. I think there is something magical about being in coastal regions so I like to spend a lot of my time there. I hope you do to!

With interest in coastal living and experience in real estate investing, my girlfriend, Maria - who helps host, and I decided to get ourselves into a project. We decided to renovate a bungalow in the Outer Banks of North Carolina to restore its beauty and charm. We knew we would spend time there with our family and friends, because we love the area, but did not realize how much our guests would like it or the impact it could have for them.

We have had so much fun and become very passionate about creating outstanding 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.

My favorite time of year in the OBX is the fall when the weather is beautiful, the fishing is great, crowds are down and the surfs up.

As a host: I am super easy going, I do travel a lot for work yet do have great people to help.

As a guest: Super laid back and low maintenance

Favorite Destinations: California, Baja Mexico, Guancaste Costa Rica, Spain, Peru, Long Island NY, Outer Banks NC, San Diego.

Things I could not live without:
1. Good friends and family relationships
2. A beach house, grill, fireplace and surfboards
