The Best Mulit-Family Beach House Rental, Walking Distance to the Beach

In 2014 my husband and I bought a 3 level beach house off the East Coast island of Outer Banks, NC. It offers 6 bedrooms with a full bathroom in each room, game room, pool, hot tub and more. It is the perfect size home for multi-families to vacation together. It is located right in the heart of Kitty Hawk and has quickly become our home away from home during the summer rental "off season". My family enjoys visiting The Outer Banks so much. It is our top destination spot when we are looking for a nice weekend getaway since it only takes about an hour and half to get to from our home in Virginia Beach, VA. 



We call our beach house The Blue Horizon. The above picture is of the beautiful blue horizon taken from our beach home. This amazing ocean view is what you see all day long! It is such a peaceful and relaxing place to visit and it's only a short walk to the beach. We invite you to come stay for a week. Currently, we have our beach house listed through a realtor company called Outer Banks Blue. Guests can make reservations through their website.

For your vacation planning convenience, I have created an OBX Vacation Series for you. My series will cover the top places to eat, shop, and visit in Outer Banks. You can follow the series below:
