Beach and Ocean Front 4.5 bedroom 4.5 bath New Vintage Cottage
About Greg Nelson
I love to bring new life to old structures. So for this 1940's cottage we plan to keep many of the vintage features with lots of upgrades. Plans are in place to move living space to second floor with additional windows for expansive views. Add another bedroom and two more bathrooms, enlarge kitchen and second floor decks. We will also add more views and improved floor plan.
Greg Nelson purchased this House in 2016
Why Greg Nelson chose Kill Devil Hills
The house speaks my passion to save and rejuvenate life into tired structures. My surfing buddies have nick named it the "Surf Shack". The surf break off the Avalon pier and directly in front of the Timeless Retreat lines up for a perfect surf session.

Fabulous family vacation house!
We definitely recommend this house for 1 family or more than one. We're hoping to go back! Great location...close enough to stores, attractions and other towns, yet far enough away to relax. Nice beach with access right from the porch. Great sunrise views. Comfortable beds, nicely furnished house, kitchen and bathrooms. Checking in and out was easy. Greg is easy to work with and responds to messages promptly.
So enjoyed the cottage. Our whole family rented houses within the same vicinity. The cottage was very clean, rooms were great. Plenty of pots and pans, dishes and towels. Only one kitchen towel so we bought a couple but all else great. Would rent again and already recommended it to some friends.
Thank you very much for the review. Sorry about the kitchen towels as house keepers are instructed to leave 2 towels. As of this morning I ask them to start leaving three as we have plenty.
Hope you continue to find great het aways on VRBO.
Peaceful beach house
This was our second time staying in this house. The newly remodeled house is beautiful. We can’t wait to come back!
Great beach front location. Very well kept with everything you could possibly need. Would not hesitate to rent again from Greg. We enjoyed ourselves immensely.
Great Beach House
Was perfect for 2 grandparents, 2 children w/ spouses, and 4 grandchildren. Can’t beat the location, just steps to the beach!
Great Memorial Day Week
Our group really enjoyed our stay at this property. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by the owner who was finishing some property maintenance. The house was just as advertised—rustic on the outside, but in the process of being renovated on the inside—and perfect for our group. Very charming and clean, and right on the beach, which was were we spent most of our time, as the house has its own path. Our young adults played on the pool table and had access to TVs for sports games and movies. Each room has its own bathroom, which was perfect for everyone. Overall, it was a wonderful week at a great property. We would recommend to anyone with a big group looking to be on the beach and have a great time.
No worries at Timeless Retreat. The location is perfect, on the beach, stepped back in the dune for protection, walking distance to great restaurants and movie theaters. Wright Brothers Memorial a few blocks away and Avalon Pier is a short walk. Bring your bikes with NC12 at your backdoor and great bike trails you can bike to many attractions. Nags Head is a few miles away and Jockeys Ridge is the same.
Once your at Timeless Retreat you may never want to leave! However, if you want to go for a one of a kind Dune Front drive head down to Hatteras for the day and walk to the top of Buxton Light House. If you have a 4 wheel drive vehicle head north and spend the day in Carova with the wild horses.
Want to shop the outlet mall cruise down NC12 and cross over Croatan Highway for best shopping. There are endless restaurants within a few miles from Timeless Retreat. This is the perfect location for all your summer dreams. Out of the traffic problems of Duck and Corolla and into the beauty of the beach and majestic sunrises.
