About Michelle Hollowell

We love our family, this home, and the beach! Our family has been coming to the Outer Banks for 5 generations now! We finished building our dream beach home earlier this spring, after looking in this area for several years. We have 4 children, a son-in-law, daughter-in-law and 2 awesome grandkids. Family and our faith are the most important things to us. We love being outdoors and participating in many types of sports and activities together. There's no better place to run! Seriously! We have 1 lab that completes our family-LOL

Michelle Hollowell purchased this house in 2016

Why Michelle Hollowell chose Kill Devil Hills

We bought this property because of the location. The best thing about our home is the view! Enjoy your morning coffee or tea, out on the deck, smelling the ocean and listening to the waves. (I'm sighing as I'm writing this-LOL) We designed and built our home for our families to enjoy each other and their surroundings. Our in-laws have a home on the same street, which is fun for our kids. My husband grew up coming here, and so have our children and now grandkids. We feel safe here, and have felt comfortable letting our children as they grew, enjoy being kids with the freedom to explore that we grew up with. Once you arrive, you can walk or ride your bike to pretty much whatever you want to do! It really is centrally located, but a quiet neighborhood with lots of activities to enjoy close by.

What makes this house unique

The fishing pier, with arcade, food, lifeguard stand, surfing, beach and oh ya, the ocean are all within a couple hundred yards! A SuperKmart with pretty much everything you could need is within walking distance, of just a few blocks. A famous restaurant, gift shop and bar, Awful Arthurs, is fifty yards away. We have plenty for your teenagers to do with foosball, basketball and a beach volleyball court as well as young children to do at the house, in case you don't want to leave. Our home is peaceful, comfortable, and hopefully you'll feel at home here, just like we do and will want to return year after year, making wonderful memories with your families as we have!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just adore your lovely home! Thank-you for sharing it with us! It was at the most beautiful house we have stayed in!

The bed linens and towels were key! Not having to pack them was very helpful.

We loved the decor and the huge kitchen! The views from the arches were beautiful.

It was also helpful to have the washer and dryer...hate doing laundry when I get home from vacation.

We would recommend a grill. ( We have put a gas grill in now) You have the best home on the block!

Thank-you for sharing your home! Would love to come back again next year!

Perfect Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

The home was absolutely beautiful. The bedrooms and bathrooms were impeccable and all furnished beautifully. Carlton's Ritz is perfect for vacation with family. We had three couples and two toddlers. Each couple was able to have their own space as well as share activities in the main room and kitchen. We were walking distance from the beach and a restaurant which was quite convenient. Our hosts were very gracious and were clearly available for any questions or problems that might come up. We hope to come and stay again !

Beautiful home! Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best family vacation over the Fourth of July. This house was perfect, stocked with everything we needed for a relaxing vacation. The fireworks go off at Avalon Pier which is maybe 5 houses away, and bonus is that this house sits higher than the others so you watch the show from your own porch. We will be back!

Amazing Elegance in a Clean, Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

They say any house can look good in pictures, in real estate, but the pictures you see don’t do a bit of justice for this home. Simply Elegant, open spaces, well decorated, kid friendly. The house was ready by the time promised and very clean.

Michelle thank you for sharing your house with my family

We had a wonderful time at the Carlton Ritz Beach house in Kill Devil Hills. Very conveniently located to the beach and activities in the OBX. When we come back, we will definitely be staying here. Thanks to Michelle for going above and beyond to make sure we had all we needed.

Gorgeous ocean views! Direct beach access with fishing pier and lifeguard stand just a couple hundred yards away! We have a beach volleyball court in the backyard and a basketball goal in the front. Our home has a central yet quiet location that affords easy access to the Beach & a variety of restaurants, shops, movie theater & area attractions all within walking distance. Miniature golf, arcades (one located at the pier-favorite place for my kids to hang out at night or on rainy days), laser tag, multiple grocery stores, outlet mall, surfing, fishing, paddle boarding, boating, sand dunes with hand gliding, spa, and golf courses, ALL within 15 minutes or less from the house. For those that enjoy the night life, there are many local bars to enjoy. Beach and sound access, depending on which water sport you want to enjoy. Taking a walk on the beach, or on the walking/bike path at the sound is a perfect way to enjoy breathtaking sunsets! There is a great Recreation Center just a few miles away, that has an outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts, and other activities for your family. Within 20 minutes, you are at the Marina, and 30 minutes away is a wonderful Aquarium! If you have time, the Lost Colony puts on play that's definitely worth attending. You can also take a tour of the islands by ferry. Our family has been coming to this beach area for 4 generations, and we feel so fortunate to have been able to build in the exact area that we were looking for, for several years. Seriously, the best location!
