Oceanfront cottage in Kitty Hawk, Outer Banks
Mark & Kim Milby
About Mark & Kim Milby
We have lived on the Outer Banks for over 20 years. Mark’s grandfather built a cottage on the Outer Banks in the 1950's and we have been coming here all our lives. We love it here and wanted to have a cottage for our family and friends to enjoy when it is not rented. We are in Real Estate and architectural

Why Mark & Kim Milby chose Sea Retreat
This is what we as locals think of as a true, classic beach cottage. Not the 20 bedroom McMansions being built today. Aside from it being an incredibly charming cottage . . . it's all about Location, Location, Location! And this cottage has such incredible views and the beach and ocean are literally your backyard. We love that it's not so big that you have to bring 20 of your closest friends to afford it. A traditional, delightful old-school Kitty Hawk bungalow perfect for 2 couples and their kids.
What makes this House unique
Sweet Tea cottage is within walking distance to Ocean Boulevard Bistro & Martini Bar (one of the best restaurants on the Outer Banks), Art's Place (a locals favorite serving great burgers for over 30 years and outside seating), and much, much more. If you are a surfer we have 2 great breaks just north and south of us. Or hunt for sea glass and the perfect conch shell to take home as a souvenir. Sweet Tea cottage is located in Kitty Hawk at Mile Post 3 1/4, so you're quickly at your cottage upon arriving on the Outer Banks and it’s conveniently located to all Outer Banks attractions, restaurants and shopping.

I mean,....the beach is right there.
This is a super charming, cozy cottage. We've stay in OBX many times in the past, mostly Corolla and Duck. First time in Kitty Hawk and, while the overall vibe is different it was really enjoyable. Very nicely upgraded inside, kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms. The mattress on the Captain's Room bed is AWESOME. TVs in every room and WIFI worked very well. Only minor complaints would be no closet space, parking is tight and the road the cottage is off is fairly busy. But when you step off the back deck and walk about 20 feet up the small dune you're on the beach. Also excellent that we were able to bring our dog Bodhi (he loves the beach!). So, I'm nitpicking regarding my "complaints". I was able to get some great photos of sunrises several mornings and many great walks by the ocean. Overall this is a great place for a romantic getaway and/or small family vacation.
This is a beautiful cottage with amazing views. Lovingly decorated, it is a perfect gathering spot for a small group of family or friends. The owners' warm hospitality shines through the entire experience--from their communications about your stay to the thoughtfully outfitted kitchen to the tastefully arrayed living spaces. Just a wonderful place to be!
We loved it!!
The house is very cozy and right on the beach. We could step out the back door and be on the beach or watch it from the windows across the back of the house. The appliances are very modern and the kitchen is fully equipped. The bathroom and shower are very modern. We were especially glad that we could have our two small dogs with us. It was their first time to the beach and they really enjoyed the water. Mark and Kim checked in with us to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. We are so glad that we found this excellent cottage for our vacation. It was all delightful!!
Absolutely loved our last minute trip and this home did not disappoint us. Perfectly restored, meticulously maintained. Perfect for my husband and dogs. You can’t get any closer to the beach! You’re right on it. The morning sunrises are gorgeous with a cup of coffee on the deck. Loved it.
Dodging the hurricane
Property and location to water was perfect match to the description! A fabulous job was done restoring the cottage by the owners. All necessary kitchenware and other items needed to make our stay comfortable were available! Looking forward to another stay next year at this property!
"Perfect get away"
The property was exactly what we expected. Charming beach cottage with striking views of the ocean. With massive waves.
