Car: not necessary

Mai Tai is located on milepost 6.5 between the highways. There are no busy roads to cross when you want to head to the beach. It is an easy 4 min walk to the fifth street public beach with a lifeguard during the prime season!! The street is not a pass thru and the homes are occupied with some full time residents. Mai Tai cottage is perfect for relaxation and very safe for kids because it is not on the beach road with traffic and noise during the summer months. It is a short walk to major shops, movie theaters, and Avalon pier. Besides all of the nearby restaurants, Awful Arthur is only a ten minute walk to enjoy the fine food and drinks overlooking the pier/ocean. Enjoy a nice breakfast at Jolly Rogers which is a two minute drive. It is a short drive to the famous Wright Brothers Memorial or climb Jockey's Ridge. Kill Devil Hills is centrally located in the Outer Banks where you can head north to Duck or south to Nags Head.

Perfect long weekend get away stay!

  • 5 of 5

Four adults went for 2 nights. Perfect for our short stay. Short walk to the beach and convenient to everything. And the beach was nice and wide at this location. Very nice. Comfortable sleeping arrangements and nice bathrooms. Everything we needed for the weekend. Easy to reserve and good communication with owner.

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as described and despite being in a busy area, was very quiet. The house is in very clean condition. We especially enjoyed the outdoor shower and beach chairs, toys and wagon. John was very easy to communicate with. John and Donna went above and beyond and provided a pack n play and high chair for our one year old and we are so appreciative - it made our vacation that much more easy and relaxed. I highly recommend the Mai Tai for your Kill Devils Hill, OBX vacation.

Perfect Trip!

  • 5 of 5

From the first contact I made with John, this house was the best vacation decision of the year. He was helpful every step of the way and very accomodating. When we arrived at the house, it was actually bigger than it appeared in the photos and everything was very clean and new. The location to the beach was only a few blocks and a quick walk. The neighborhood was nice and quiet and even though it is a populated area, we never felt like we were in a crowded place. There are several restaraunts you can walk to (Awful Arthur's has great drinks and food!) and all stores were close. Mai Tai is thoughtfully decorated on the inside and has everything you might need. By the end of the week the 6 of us felt like we were leaving our home and did not want to go. It was a great meeting place for us since we were coming from NC, MD, and NY and we will definitely consider renting Mai Tai next year!!
