Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 8

Embrace the spirit of simple times—Remember a time of telephones with rotary dials, music only available on vinyl disks and computers were something reserved for science fiction movies? The comfort of a chic hotel will never be able to match the yesteryear character of The Gray House.

Located at milepost 6 in Kill Devil Hills, this definitive classic bungalow boasts pet friendly oceanfront living you would expect along with direct beach access, 3 bedrooms with queen beds, and a tucked-away nook with 2 twins. At the same time, lose the luggage and live like a local with gorgeous views, super-cute kitchen, hardwood floors and the advantage of hoisting the windows, turn the ceiling fans on and bring that ocean breeze inside! Your dining room table, situated to the East (Oceanside) is an excellent hang out for putting a puzzle together, indulging in a good read from the book library or kicking back on the sun/covered decks with picturesque views of Avalon Pier, the shore line, golden sand and swaying sea oats.

After creating irreplaceable memories from a great day at the beach, unwind with a crisp, refreshing rinse in the enclosed outside shower and put your best flip flops on! See what’s biting a bottom-rig on Avalon Pier or the sacred and succulent Awful Arthur’s Restaurant and Lounge with neighboring souvenir shop. All within 5-100 yards from your ideally positioned cottage!

We can help you forget the city stress and retain the value of family, friends and a peaceful easy feeling at The Gray House. Hurry, available weeks won’t last long!

Reviewer Comments:

We rode into town as Irma was still threatening to come up the coast. It was windy for the first couple of days and fortunately for us that was all she brought. The rest of the week was sunshine and in the 80's. Perfect. This is our 2nd year at the Gray House and again, we cannot say enough about the cabin by the sea. Since last year the owner tore out the carpet, put in new windows, a new door and added a lot of extra wood to shore up the existing structure. The upgrades were great. I am so grateful the owners share their cottage with us and our 4 legged family!! Thank You! The staff at Carolina Shores is spectacular. Again, helpful, pleasant and a pleasure to deal with. Thank You for all your help!

Owner's Response: Kariann, Thank you for the amazing comments about THE GRAY HOUSE! We are so glad that you enjoyed all the new updates! This is a classic Outer Banks vacation home built entirely by the homeowner many years ago. All the wood was taken from their farm miles and miles away and delivered to build this sweet oceanfront gem! We hope to see you in future! Thank you! Carolina Shores

Reviewer Comments:

Location & view are great! House is old, but only two major problems: The two bathrooms are disaster areas & should be combined into a single, properly sized, modern bathroom; and the door knobs & locks need to be replaced.

This Cabin on the water is a perfect spot for relaxing and vegging. Quaint and warm with a very homey, welcoming feel. Close to the Pier and Awful Arthurs. I cannot say enough about The Gray House. Property staff at Carolina Shores were spectacular. A pleasure to deal with and responsive.

Reviewer Comments:

For a one month, spur of the moment decision it was very easy to find and rent this place. My two cousins were able to come for a few days and we had some decent weather (plenty of surf!) to visit and enjoy the house. There is plenty for a person (s) to see and do here, (my first time). I would have taken the ferry circle if not for the windy conditions (for me, that us, lol)

Reviewer Comments:

This was our second time staying in the Gray House and as always, it was a great time. I am hesitant to list all of its charms, for selfish reasons, it is truly a little gem of a house! This home feels like home and really does have the BEST deck on the beach. Location is another attribute, as everything is within 5 minutes, so you have plenty of much needed beach time. My husband said "I don't care how successful we are, or if we can afford a larger house for vacation, this place is us and we will always come back here". The home accommodated our family of six nicely with plenty of room to spread out. We will be booking again for 2016! Our family loves The Gray House.
