About the property

The beach is literally your backyard!

Lemonade Cottage is a classic 1935 oceanfront beach bungalow that has been lovingly saved and restored to her original beauty. You MUST see to appreciate. The beach and ocean are literally in your back yard . . . just walk down the porch steps and you're there. You don't get any closer than this!!

Lemonade cottage features an open living area with high vaulted ceiling, true tongue-and-groove paneling, rustic hardwood floors, lots of natural light, and panoramic ocean views from covered and uncovered porches and decks. The living room featuring comfy seating, a large flat screen TV and ceiling fan are there when you're ready for a break from your backyard beach. Adjoining the living area is the dining room with an antique dining table, church pew seating, and wall-to-wall windows overlooking the Atlantic ocean. Enjoy your morning coffee watching the dolphins play in the surf and the sun rise on the Atlantic . . . you'll never want to get out of your PJ's.

The well equipped kitchen features stainless steel appliances, fridge with ice maker, dishwasher . . . and just about everything you need to prepare your "fresh catch" and entertain. Extending the living area is a huge wrap-around covered porch for when you're in need of shade . . . or oceanfront sundeck when you want to catch some rays. Enjoy evening cocktails sitting in an Adirondack overlooking the ocean. Ahhhh!

Lemonade cottage offers three bedrooms and sleeps 6 comfortably with two oceanfront queen bedrooms plus a twin bunk room. Don't let the one bathroom concern you as you'll want to take all your showers outdoors in the private, enclosed outside shower with hot and cold water. The cottage also features a large laundry room with washer, dryer, extra storage area and has central air conditioning.

Lemonade is situated in Kitty Hawk within a short drive to many local restaurants, shopping and attractions and walking distance to Ocean Boulevard Bistro & Martini Bar and Art's Place (a true "diner & dive" known for the best burger on the beach!). Enjoy spectacular shelling, surf fishing, sun bathing, surfing, swimming, kayaking, biking . . . and so much more. Your family will remember the memories you make at Lemonade for generations to come!

Please note you must be 27 years old to rent this cottage.

Linens are not included.

This is a NON-SMOKING cottage.

About Mark & Kim Milby

We have lived on the Outer Banks for over 20 years. My grandfather built a cottage on the outer banks in the 1950's and we have been coming here all our lives. We love it here and wanted to have a cottage for our family and friends to enjoy when it is not rented. We are in Real Estate and architectural design and loved bringing this cottage back to life when we bought it. We hope you will love it as much as we do.

Mark & Kim Milby purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Mark & Kim Milby chose Kitty Hawk

This is what we as locals think of as a true, classic beach cottage. Not the 20 bedroom McMansions being built today. Aside from the incredibly charming cottage it's all about Location, Location, Location! And this cottage has such incredible views and the beach and ocean are literally your backyard. We love that it's not so big that you have to bring 20 of your closest friends to afford it. A traditional, delightful old-school Kitty Hawk bungalow perfect for 2 couples and their kids.

What makes this cottage unique

Lemonade cottage is within walking distance to Ocean Boulevard Bistro & Martini Bar (one of the best restaurants on the Outer Banks), Art's Place (a locals favorite serving great burgers for over 30 years and outside seating), and much, much more. If you are a surfer we have 2 great breaks just north and south of us. Or enjoy hunting for sea glass and the perfect conch shell to take home as a souvenir. Lemonade cottage is located in Kitty Hawk at Mile Post 2 1/4, so you're quickly at your cottage upon arriving on the Outer Banks.

It is conveniently located to all Outer Banks attractions, restaurants and shopping.

Perfect week at the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We fell I love with Lemonade cottage the minute we stepped inside. The views from the window and porch were spectacular, and the interior was a perfect combination of old-fashioned coziness, bright sunshine, and modern comforts. The kitchen was very well-equipped, all was impeccably clean and the beach and ocean couldn’t be closer. The owners were very helpful throughout.

Even better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

Mark and Kim were fantastic to work with! Their cottage is even cuter than the pictures. It feels MORE than oceanfront- it feels like you’re in the ocean! Great location, fantastic house. We couldn’t have asked for a better spring break! Lol- except maybe no snow ;)

Perfect oceanfront stay for the holidays!

  • 5 of 5

Lemonade cottage was exactly what we were looking for! On the ocean, clean and very nicely decorated. This cottage is well cared for and kept up (unlike other beach rentals we have stayed at). It was heaven to wake up to the sight of the ocean right in front of the cottage and hear the waves all night long. We came during the off season and the weather was fantastic, the beach empty, yet most of the restaurant and shops within 15 minutes were still open. The owners, Kim and Mark, were very helpful and responsive-they brought blankets over for us because we couldn't figure out the nest thermostat on our first night. If I owned a beach cottage, I would hope that it would be like this one-perfect!

Vintage Charm at its finest!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect! Warmth, charm and location- it doesn’t get any better. The beach is beautiful and quiet- enjoyable to sit on the deck or taking multiple walks. Restaurants, grocery and shopping all close. Stop by Duck Donuts- the donuts are amazing! The cottage decor is comfortable and conveniences of home. Very clean and pleasant. Kim and Mark are easy to work with and very accessible. We hope to return again. Thank you for sharing you wonderful cottage and making our first trip to Kitty Hawk so pleasurable.

A perfect marriage of vintage and modern!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Lemonade Cottage! It has the charm of a vintage cottage and is lovingly decorated and equipped with all the modern amenities (and great mattresses). It is located in an area not far from stores and restaurants and is situated on a relatively uncrowded beach with beautiful sunrises. The owners left a bottle of sparkling lemonade in the refrigerator as a welcome gift which was very thoughtful and unexpected. We look forward to a return trip to the Outer Banks and another week at this cozy and welcoming oceanfront cottage.

Perfect cozy getaway on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cozy and thoughtfully restored cottage! The location couldn't have been more perfect; located directly on the beach, and just close enough to restaurants and shopping. The kitchen had all new appliances which made it a pleasure to cook in, and the grill just outside was very convenient! Lemonade Cottage's amenities made it so easy to simply stay put, relax and enjoy the backyard beach and surf. We also loved waking up to the sunrise view from the bedroom each morning.

We were so thankful to be able to bring our fur babies with us, so that was a huge plus, too! They enjoyed the pet friendly beach as much as we did! Our only suggestion would be a door or gate to be able to corral little ones (or pets) on the deck since the house is directly on a well traveled street.

Thanks again Mark and Kim, for making this a memorable 25th anniversary getaway for us! We look forward to coming back!
