To book our cottage you must have a photo with AirBnB, all credentials, phone number, email, and ID verified with AirBnB, and multiple positive reviews from other AirBnB hosts. Guests will also receive a rental agreement to review and eSign.

Please note that if you bring a well-behaved dog, there is an additional $75 fee (per dog) to cover the extra deep-cleaning that needs to be done from time to time.

The cottage is located right on the Beach Road in Kitty Hawk, NC between milepost 4.0 and 4.5 and is the perfect place if you are looking to relax and have a classic Outer Banks beach house experience. With this cottage, you are just steps away from the ocean....beach access is about a 200 foot walk to the corner! We have very quiet neighbors to the left, right, and behind us.

The cottage has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It comfortably sleeps 6 people, and there are plenty of extra spaces to hang-out....on the rooftop deck, the front deck, the back deck, the screened sun-porch, the back yard, or under the cottage. There is also an outdoor shower with hot/cold water, washer and dryer, fully stocked kitchen (fridge, oven, microwave, dishes, pots, pans, and silverware) to make home-cooked meals as well as Nutri-Bullet for cold drinks and a Keurig coffee maker. We also have a laundry room with washer and dryer available for your use.

This is a very comfortable beach cottage with amazing views of the ocean. Our cottage has vintage and unique furnishings, as well as more modern amenities such as 2 flat-screen TVs, 2 DVD players, cable, WiFi, and a retro Atari game system. Nautical and beach decor is located throughout the cottage, and you will notice that there are books, board games and puzzles in just about every room and corner...including a few Rubik's cubes laying around! The main room also has a large collection of DVDs for your viewing pleasure. Many of the guests who stay at this cottage have been been coming for over 20+ years, and many of them say that they love the "comfortable feeling" as well as how close the cottage is to the beach and the ocean views.

If there is only one thing you do if you stay with us.....we highly recommend you get up early, grab some coffee or tea, and watch the sunrise over the ocean from the rooftop deck. It is a memory not soon to be forgotten.

We also have a completely fenced-in backyard and well-behaved dogs are allowed on a case-by-case basis. Sorry, no cats. There will be an additional $75 fee per dog to have a dog stay that will be requested via AirBnB prior to your stay. Please watch over your dog at all times so that they are safe and will not get into anything or destroy furniture or bedding. Also you will be responsible to pick-up after your dog, or pay for any damage done to the home or furnishings by your dog.

We also have a small shed that has beach chairs, a beach umbrella, and assorted beach toys. Please feel free to use them during your stay!

Please note that when you book your stay with us, you will receive a Rental Agreement that outlines the house rules in this AirBnB listing, and also indicates that if there is a mandatory evacuation of the island that the guest will receive a refund for any days that they could not use due to the evacuation.

We are Mike and Nicole, and have been married since 2007 and have one child - our Doberman. We're outdoorsy types and love to hike, mountain climb, ski, kayak, and of course, go to the beach!

We will both happily work the day-to-day job of making sure that you are comfortable and enjoying your time when you're at Serendipity OBX or Grizzly Cabin White Mountains. We want you to have your best vacation every time you come to stay.

We are very familiar with the Outer Banks, and the White Mountains, and can give you recommendations for attractions, dinner, breakfast, hiking, skiing, or answer any questions that you may have. We will always be available to you. We're easily accessible via the Airbnb messaging system, as both of us receive notifications when a new message is sent to us, and usually respond minutes.

It is a requirement of Airbnb for all guests to READ and AGREE to the Host House Rules prior to a confirmed booking. As a host partner with Airbnb, we follow all policies, procedures, terms/conditions and superior standards....and we expect all of our guests to do the same! ********** PLEASE READ TO THE END ************ 1. VERY IMPORTANT - In order to get your booking approved, you will need to have 3 thngs: 1) a completed AirBnB profile (profile, government ID, picture with face ), 2) have all of your verifications completed with AirBnB including government ID, phone, and email, and 3) have multiple positive reviews with 5 stars from other hosts. Minimum age to rent is 24 for the responsible party. PLEASE read all the rest of our house rules. We want to make sure that our cottage is a good match and fit for you. 2. Bring your own linens, pillows, towels, and blankets. There are 2 queen beds, and 4 twin beds. Don't forget beach towels and bath towels! There are linen service providers in the area if you prefer to rent your linens for approximately $125-$150 per week. Please note that all pillows and quilts have been removed from the cottage, and that in addition to bringing your own linens you will need to bring your own pillows and quilts/blankets. 3. Do not access the roof from the top deck under any circumstances. It is your responsibility to ensure that no one attempts to access the roof under any circumstances. 4. Parties are not allowed. 5. Do not smoke or vape in the house or the sun porch. Please note that if the cleaners determine that smoking occurred in the sun porch or house, you will be charged a $500 deep-cleaning fee against your security deposit. 6. If you use the gas grill, never leave it unattended. If you use the gas grill, please clean it after it has cooled off. 7. Please do not access the loft if you are uncomfortable climbing a ladder. You use the loft ladder at your own risk. Please use the ladder handrails when climbing the ladder. Please shut and latch the loft swing door while you're up in the loft for safety. You use the loft, and the loft ladder at your own risk. 8. This cottage is listed as not suitable for children and infants. There are stairs, a loft ladder, roof-top deck, mini-blind cords and electrical outlets. If you are bringing children with you, it will be your responsibility to supervise them at all times to ensure their safety. 9. If you bring a dog with you, you need to let us know about it first as there is a $75 per dog fee. Please note it is your responsibility to ensure the gates are closed and locked at all times, as well as to supervise your pet at all times for their safety. 10. During your stay, we are not responsible for illness, injury, theft or accidents. If you have any questions, please let us know beforehand. 11. Do not trespass on the neighbors' properties. We have year-round neighbors to the left, right, and behind and you need to respect their privacy and property. The backyard of Serendipity is fenced in so the property boundaries are very clear...but anything outside of the fence is private property. Even though it may look like the property outside of the fence is connected to one of the nearby restaurants, it is actually private property. 12. If you bring a dog with you, dogs are not allowed on couches. 13. Candles are not permitted. 14. Please do not flush anything down the toilet other than toilet paper. 15. NO LIABILITY/INDEMNIFICATION/HOLD HARMLESS: The owners of the property do not assume liability for the loss, theft, damage or injury (or death) to persons or their personal property for any reason including pandemic/Covid19. Guests agree to indemnify and hold the owners harmless for any liabilities, theft, damage, cost or expense whatsoever arising from or related to any claim or litigation which may arise out of or in connection with Guests’ use and occupancy of the rental property, including but not limited to claims for personal injury or property damage/loss. 16. This rental requires a written rental agreement be reviewed, eSigned, and returned. Please note that all bookings have a $750 security deposit (done automatically by AirBnB when you book). After your check-out our cleaners and property manager will inspect the property for damage. If there is any damage, a claim will be made against your security deposit for the cost of materials and labor to repair/replace the damage. To receive a copy of the agreement, please send an inquiry prior to sending a Booking Request / Instant Book, and a copy will be sent to you for review. We reserve the right to cancel any Instant Booking where the guest refuses to eSign the rental agreement. 17. Check-out is 10:00am Eastern time. Please ensure you give yourself enough time to check-out by this time. Our cleaners arrive promptly. Failure to check-out by this time may result in a claim against your security deposit. 18. We typically have the outdoor showers turned off from late-November until early March so that the plumbing lines don’t freeze and crack. Just an FYI. 19. Serendipity is NOT for everyone. This is a 70+ year old Outer Banks cottage. We love our cottage, but like any home or place you stay at...it will not be right for everyone. The cottage is clean, full of character, comfort, charm, and history. However, if you are looking for everything to be absolutely perfect, no imperfections anywhere, not a grain of sand in the corners, granite counter tops, and bamboo hardwood floors....then this home would probably NOT be a good fit for you. The secret phrase to book our place is from a Frank Sinatra song "I like New York in June, how about you?". There is a chance you may find some sand behind a table, or a mark on the wall from a guest that stayed here 20+ years ago. If you have these kinds of expectations that everything is perfect, then Serendipity would not be a good fit for you and there are plenty of other homes that can meet your needs. If your looking to stay in a unique and clean cottage, in a great beach town, and have a classic Outer Banks beach vacation experience....then this is the cottage for you. Thank you for reading all of the house rules!Not suitable for children and infantsNo smokingNo parties or eventsCheck-in is anytime after 3:00 PM

This is a older Outer Banks home and used to be the station keeper's house for Kitty Hawk Life Saving Station #7. It served as the living quarters for the station keeper and personnel and for many years was simply known as "The Station Keeper's House". In 1992 the owners changed its named to "Serendipity" and is has been called that ever since. Please note that as this is an older home, and many of the doorways are low. The master bedroom is a pretty decent size, but the other bedrooms are relatively small. There are no closets in any of the bedrooms, but there are dressers and areas to hang clothes. You will find that you live out on the decks when it is warm, or in the enclosed sun porch when it's rainy. Please Note: We love our cottage, but like any home or place you stay at...it will not be right for everyone. The cottage is 70+ years old, very clean, full of character, comfort, charm, and history. However, if you are looking for everything to be absolutely perfect, no imperfections anywhere, granite counter tops, and bamboo hardwood floors....then this home would probably not be a good fit for you. Our home is a clean, comfortable, and classic OBX beach cottage. If your looking to stay in a unique cottage, in a great beach town, and have a classic Outer Banks beach vacation experience....then this is the cottage for you.
