|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Located at Mile Post 6.5 in Kill Devil Hills, this private unit is located on the ground level of my home. Set in a quiet family neighborhood, the unit is approximately 450 square feet and consists of a large bedroom with a comfortable queen bed, a sitting area with a recliner and an extra chair, a 32 inch HDTV with extended cable package and Blu-Ray player, and a large closet.
The front room has an apartment sized refrigerator, microwave oven, toaster oven, toaster, coffee maker with complimentary coffee, love seat, small drop leaf dining table with two small bar stools, basic cooking utensils and silverware, dinnerware for two, and a 19 inch television with Roku streaming stick. The Roku allows access to Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Videos, and many other popular channels. We also provide an electric skillet and electric griddle for your use. Wi-Fi is also available.
Keep cool in the summer time and warm in the winter time with heating and air conditioning units that are separate and apart from the main house.
Outside, guests have exclusive use of a gas grill with side burner, the outdoor shower with hot and cold water, a sitting area directly outside of the unit, and another sitting area with hammocks and a porch swing. Guests also have exclusive of a covered parking area.
We provide all linens, towels, two beach towels, and two beach chairs, a beach umbrella, two camping chairs, and a small cooler. In addition, we provide an iron and small ironing board, a hair dryer, and other essentials.
We are located less than two-tenths of a mile from a public boat ramp with oversized vehicle parking. Within three-tenths of a mile is a multi-use path that runs adjacent to the Sound (bay) – perfect for enjoying the picturesque OBX sunsets or taking a leisurely stroll, jog, or bike ride. There are numerous restaurants, supermarkets, a movie-theater, and shopping facilities are all within a few short miles.
If you have a small child, no problem. The bedroom can accommodate a portable crib and if need be, we can provide a camping cot with mattress.
Please note, while we are pet lovers ourselves, we simply do not allow pets in the unit. No exceptions, sorry.
There are no cleaning fees added to the price or additional insurance/maintenance fees, just the $100 refundable damage deposit. The damage deposit is refunded within a few days after check-out.
Within a week of your arrival, we will provide you detailed access instructions to make check-in as smooth and painless as possible. Once you arrive, you will find a notebook binder with more information on how to access the wireless, how to operate the television sets, some local insights on good restaurants and attractions, and so forth.
Checking out is just as simple. We don’t have any specific requirements other than to leave the unit in good condition, the same way you would like to find it if it was yours.
In short, we think you would be hard pressed to find a hotel room or similar accommodations on the Outer Banks that provide the same amenities, the same atmosphere, and the same service for less than $100 per day during the summer months.
Feel free to contact us with any questions.
Having grown up in southeastern Virginia, I have been coming to the OBX on vacation all my life. As an adult, I owned two vacation homes in Kill Devil Hills. Upon retiring from Portsmouth Public Schools as a teacher, I decided to make the beautiful OBX my permanent home.
Recess was very comfortable and relaxing. Well furnished and super clean. Located close to the beaches and other points of interest. A great stay
The apartment is very charming and sooooo clean! The bed was comfortable! A very big plus. The owners were very helpful and quick in responding to our requests for restaurant recommendations. The apartment is in a great location. We spent one day exploring Currituck Lighthouse. Very nice day trip to Corolla. The next day we went to the seafood festival in Nags Head and visited Bodie Lighthouse. Another nice day. Our last day we drove to Cape Hatteras Lighthouse. Beautiful drive down NC 12.
Everything you need is provided. I recommend Recess. A very nice place to stay!
Wonderful hosts who are very helpful, informative and fun to talk to about what is in the area. Excellent central location for reaching most of the OBX. Rooms clean and neat with comfortable bed. A/C could have been a little stronger but it was fine for us (might be a little light for the summer months when the temperatures are much higher). This is primarily a room. Although it does have some stuff for cooking and includes an outdoor grill we didn't do any cooking due to the lack of a sink for clean up (I guess people normally use a couple of tubs for that but we didn't want to hassle with it). It would be fine for reheating some leftovers from eating out and would serve well for a light breakfast (cereal, toast, etc.) We ate out the whole time which is what we normally do. Was otherwise quiet and we slept well. Overall, an excellent place to stay and I would highly recommend it. Would stay here again if we come back to the OBX.
Mary Lee and Mike are great and so hospitable! Accomodations are warm and very close to the sound (.5 mi) or the ocean (~1mi) and in the perfect hub of several great restaurants. Their "Welcome" binder is filled with helpful tips for your stay in their home as well as in the area. Definitely plan to return next year to "Recess"!
The owners are fantastic people with a well maintained property. Has all you really need fora great stay for the week. We loved the hammocks and attention to detail with body wash and other possibly forgotten items. Less the a ten minute walk to the sound and close to all the best food.
