My newly constructed beach apartment will be your happy place! Fun and beachy, it features a master bedroom w/ queen bed, kitchen/dining area and living room w/ comfortable queen futon. Just built with fresh paint and furnishings, specifically for AirBnB coziness. A short walk (or borrow two bikes!) to the beach, Wright Brothers Memorial, popular restaurants, shops, bars and nightlife. Sleeps 3-4 and is perfect for couples, friends, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families.
Share good vibes, sleep well and embrace beach bliss in my new island-themed decorated apartment, located beneath my house with its own private entrance and parking.
There's a living room with a queen-sized sofa/futon (it's very comfortable with 8-inch thick mattress and can sleep 1-2 people) and 32-inch TV. We do not provide cable, but there's Netflix and Amazon Prime. Kitchen has a full-size fridge, sink, microwave, toaster oven, french press coffee maker, electric kettle and dishware/household items. No stove, but an electric skillet is provided. There's a dining area (large table for playing provided board games), and a large master bedroom and bath with a queen size bed. The bright bathroom has a full-size tub/shower and is equipped with hairdryer and flat iron, and shampoo/conditioner.
There's a shared laundry room with the upstairs unit with Washer/Dryer if needed. Also shared with the upstairs unit is a large, outdoor shower (you will love OBX outdoor showers!) and a large, shaded fenced in back yard. The space was just built so all construction and furnishings are new!
I provide two beach cruisers and two beach chairs as well as bath towels, bedding/sheets/blankets, and a roll of toilet paper and paper towels and hand soap to get you started. If you need to buy more paper products, toiletries or anything else during your stay, you can walk Walgreens just 1/2 block away!
Dogs are considered, but see the Rules section for more details. I am a dog lover, but I keep the house and furniture/bedding impeccably clean for all guests.
*When booking, please ensure you list the correct number of guests (do not list as "1 guest" if you plan to bring your family).*
*Please review the cancellation policy before booking and understand it will be enforced. Consider purchasing travel insurance as a back up plan.*
The apartment is a separate unit underneath the main unit upstairs, where the owner (or other AirBnB guests, see my other listing!) reside. Please keep this in mind, as you may hear footsteps or activity above you. You will have private access to the full apartment downstairs and shared access to laundry room and outdoor shower (available seasonally). There's a driveway with two parking spaces on the right side just for AirBnB guests in this unit. There's also a shared fenced-in, shaded backyard with fire pit and swings hanging from the large oak trees, very peaceful. Feel free to pick up some fire wood from a convenience store and build a bonfire.
Interaction with guests
I'm really chill and love traveling and travelers! I'm happy to socialize with guests, or just give them space they need to enjoy a secluded holiday. Most summer months, I live upstairs. Other months, upstairs is rented to other AirBnb guests.
HULA HOOP WARNING: If I am around during your stay, you can expect to see my practicing hoop dance or fire dance in the driveway (I am a professional circus entertainer)! If you want to try it, I'll have a hoop for you! Otherwise, please consider it an oddity and unique part of your vacation experience.
Whether I am personally at the house or traveling, I am just a text away and my friend, Cindy, is local and helps me co-host. We have both lived in OBX long term and are happy to share all the local hot spots and secrets with you!
I'm a yoga instructor and offer a discount on private yoga or meditation sessions. If you are interested in adding on a daily yoga retreat package with delicious plant-based meals, I can send you more information (this is when I am in town only). I'm also happy to help you plan activities during your stay and have recommendations for yoga, personal training, massage therapists, board rentals and surf instructors, gym memberships, fishing and other activities.
Other things to note
Responsible travel - I maintain an eco-friendly home offering tourists a way to travel responsibly to respect the nature of our beautiful islands. When possible, I choose eco-friendly, natural and chemical-free household products and cleaners. Please turn off lights when you are not home, keep the AC/Heat at a reasonable level, recycle using the bin provided, and be sure to leave the beaches clean and free of litter. Enjoy your visit and leave OBX with killer Karma!
Summer/Fall Hurricane Season - For your safety, if there is a Hurricane Watch, Warning or evacuation issued during your stay, you may be required to leave and be refunded the unused portion of your stay, minus the cleaning fee.
I'm very free spirited and easy going, but yes there are a few rules. Let's get through this and start planning the fun:
-Please specify the accurate number of guests (including children) when you book. I need to know the correct number of guests so I can be sure I can accommodate your full party with appropriate amounts of linens and amenities. There is a small fee for extra guests over 2 people and it also ensures you are paying the correct rental rate for your party.
-Dogs: REQUIRED pet fee of $25/night (2 dog max), capped at $100 if you are staying more than 4 days. Please do not ask if you can avoid this fee. As a dog lover and one who travels with dogs, it's important to me to allow pets a place to stay in OBX, but I must be compensated for sharing my home and yard with them. I will bill the additional amount to you via Airbnb. Dogs must be friendly, be able to share the yard and have safe interaction with other people and dogs. Your dog must also be on prescription flea control and vaccinated (your word is good!). No dogs allowed on the furniture, we must keep that clean for all guests. Security deposit will be strictly enforced. Pooper scooper provided, please clean up after your pet.
-Please park on the right side of the double-wide driveway. There is enough space for two cars!
-Please empty trash and remove any food from the refrigerator when you check out, as it makes the place smell nicer for the next guests who check in just hours after you check out. Good karma, too!
- It's a peaceful residential neighborhood. Please keep the noise level outdoors to a minimum after 10pm weekdays and 11pm weekends.
-Please be mindful there are occupants living upstairs, either the owner or other AirBnb guests.

I am a chill beach girl - happy, positive, and free spirited. I enjoy being outdoors, making friends, and my work - blogging/writing, teaching yoga and teaching/performing circus arts.
I live in Kill Devil Hills, NC, where I have an AirBnb space in my home. I love summer in the Outer Banks, but I also live in San Diego during most of the year and am often off traveling the world.
When home and hosting travelers, I love my OBX island life - I work hard while still managing endless beach days and having drinks or dinner out with friends and night walks on the beach with my dog.
When traveling, I often visit places to find yoga/dance training or classes. I am usually traveling alone so it's nice if hosts want to be friendly and hang out or introduce me to friends. But I'm also independent and can keep myself very busy solo.
I live a very holistic and healthy lifestyle. I'm responsible and mature, but I also enjoy a bit of nightlife and dancing!
I'm super clean and keep my rental properties are kept nice and updated. As a guest, I'm respectful of people's property.
