Overview

About the property

Cozy, clean, and close to the beach!! Owner operated and flexible dates.

Look no further...The reviews say it all! If you want to be within walking distance to the beach, close to many restaurants and attractions, be in the heart of the Outer Banks, then Tip Sea is the place for you. Updated with lighter paint colors and shabby chic decor and furniture, it is centrally located at milepost 9.5. Tip Sea is in a great location not only to the beach, but also within walking distance to restaurants, grocery stores, and shopping. It is a straight shot to the beach road, with a choice of two beach accesses. The cottage has three bedrooms, two queen beds, and two twins. There are two full bathrooms, with one connected to the master bedroom. The updated kitchen, which overlooks the family room, has the perfect bar/island which can seat up to five people, with more standing around. After a long day on the beach or an early sunrise, Tip Sea has a wonderful covered front porch to sit and relax, or to make use of the picnic table, maybe for those nights where you want to spread some seafood and watch the sunset. There is also an outdoor basketball hoop as well. . There is a basketball hoop for those days anyone needs to show off their Micheal Jordan moves. The cottage is stocked with all your vacation needs. Linens and necessities (toilet paper, paper towels/detergent/etc.) are not included, but you can rent linens if needed with the rental company located on our street (additional charge with them), or you can bring your own. Outside there is an enclosed shower, so you can rinse off straight from the beach. There are a few beach chairs, or you may choose to bring your own, or rent some from the rental shop. There is a charcoal grill if you want to grab a steak/oysters/shrimp from the Harris Teeter across the street. On those rainy nights, Tip Sea provides a variety of family games, WiFi, DVD player (Redbox at Harris Teeter or choose from my dvds at the cottage), and cable t.v. We hope that you feel at home the minute you walk into Tip Sea, and we want you to have the most relaxing vacation ever. It doesn't get much better than this. Grab a bag, pack some flops, and Tip Sea will be waiting.

About Debra or Evan

My husband and I enjoy going to the Outer Banks a few times a year, whether it is for our yearly summer rental, or a weekend getaway in the off-season. I have grown up coming here over the last 40 years, and a dream of mine was always to have my own beach cottage, and after getting to know the Outer Banks, my husband felt the same. We have 3 boys, and they love visiting as well. We have rented from wonderful owners, and our hope is that our guests say the same and enjoy Tip Sea as much as we have enjoyed places we've rented. We are extremely excited to get our first season started, and we hope that you will join us!

Debra or Evan purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Debra or Evan chose Outer Banks

Location to the beach, light colors/kitchen updated, in the center of OBX, nearby restaurants, shopping, activities, and attractions. Also, when renting, we always looked for places on quieter streets, yet centered within it all. Tip Sea offers just that. Our number one priority is having Tip Sea be your home away from home, and we like for any renters to leave feeling that way. Because we rent it out ourselves, we are able to immediately answer any questions or give tips on things to do/where to eat in the area. We hope you trust what reviewers have said, and give Tip Sea a try!

Fabulous family holiday at Kitty Hawk!

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely three day family trip to Kitty Hawk. The house was perfect for our two small children. It had everything we needed and location was great. We would definitely recommend to families!

Definitely a repeat vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's second year to stay at Tip Sea. The cottage is nicely decorated and comfortable. Everything you could possible need is there - beach chairs/toys, a grill, and even bicycles. We especially enjoyed the front porch. It happened to be storming but we enjoyed watching it from the porch. The beach is a 5 minute walk at the most. It is conveniently located near lots of restaurants and shops. We plan to stay there again next year.

Cozy and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Tip Sea was the PERFECT place for our group to stay for the Labor Day wedding we attended. Ideally located next to everything important (delicious food spots, short walk to beach, even a Rite Aid and pizza place within walking distance), we settled in for a comfortable and fun weekend! The porch is adorable, living room was great for a group card game and the beds/bathrooms were comfortable and clean. Debra was so helpful throughout our stay. We were thankful every day that we chose to stay here and not at one of the wedding hotels - it was quaint, spacious and charming! :) Would definitely come back!

Cute Beach house, plenty of room and very clean

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome beach house! The location is great and the walk to the beach is short. the house is roomy and offers plenty of space to spread out. Best part is the owners! I was in constant contact with her and she made sure we had what we needed. Can't wait to visit again next season! We will be back for sure!
