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.
Welcome to Live Swell Beach Bungalows where our mission is to open the doors to the surfing lifestyle for travelers who dream about life near the ocean + waves, like us!
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.
Guests have access to the entire home and property.

We love our OBX bungalow, its a great house yet, like mosts homes it is not perfect and not for everyone. We respect that folks have different preferences and worldviews. 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 your seeking a perfect, flawless home or are super high maintenance, this is not the place for you.

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
