Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 14

ONLY 120 feet from the Beach. Enjoy the breathtaking ocean views and the unique decor while vacationing. Unlike many of the newer 'mansion' beach houses, this house maintains the feeling of a true beach house while providing a comfortable vacation center for beach lovers.

This beach house is one of the original houses built in ocean sands - it is older, more rustic and a traditional ocean house. No home theaters, music studios or elevators.

Please pass us by if you want a high end hotel.

The first floor features 4 bedrooms (each with its own half bath and sharing a shower/bathtub with a neighboring room), and a full laundry room. There is also a Private Hot Tub and a Gas BBQ Grill, along with a hanging swing and deck chairs. The second floor offers the large great room, kitchen, and dining area, as well as gorgeous southeastern ocean views! There is also a fifth bedroom with full bathroom access. The kitchen has modern appliances and is of an open design. Sunbathers will enjoy the large wraparound decks on both floors. The third floor consists of a game room/sun room fully equipped and ready for some fun with a queen futon, TV, Wii, and a Foosball table.

Discounts given to military, law enforcement, fire personnel and teachers. You should be recognized for what you do for US.

Pets aren't just welcomed - they are ENCOURAGED!

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Great house with tons of room for everyone to spread out. The house had a great location, close to the beach, grocery stores, and shops. Overall we couldn't have asked for anything more. The owner was great and always answered in a timely manner and was very helpful. We had a great time and are excited to start planning our trip for next year!

Great house with a beautiful view and so close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family with plenty of space and a large family room where we could hang out together. Beautiful views from the balcony and the most comfortable blue deck chairs made my morning coffee absolutely perfect. The house is super close to the beach and not far from restaurants and the grocery store. It was our first trip to the Outerbanks and it won't be our last! Thanks Greg for a great house!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your visit and your kind words. It's greatly appreciated. (And you left the house so clean - it was hard to tell someone had been there! ) please think of us again if you return to OBX.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Dog House 3 years in a row, and had stayed in previous years as well. It is comfortable, located perfectly and has everything a family needs to feel at home. We all love (3 generations) this beach home and look forward to next year.

Great older property close enough to hear the waves

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly as advertised. Plenty of room, close to the beach, and in good condition. The owner was easy to communicate with and very friendly. It has lots of windows and an exceptionally clean hot tub.
