Swell Kept Secret is our neighbor property to Snow's Nest, both beautiful beach bungalows just blocks away from the sound and oceanfront. As experienced Super Hosts we know what it takes to provide a fantastic and comfortable home-away stay for both OBX newcomers and seasoned visitors alike! We hope you will check out our home and find it as cozy, coastal, and convenient as we do! Walkable to grocery, restaurants, a movie theatre and more when not hitting the beach!
Swell Kept Secret is not just your typical OBX beach bungalow; with plenty of decks to enjoy the outside, a true "beachy feel" with original aspects of the home paired with modern touches, and a flair for local art, we like our visitors to feel that they are getting the outer banks experience! We will always keep the house stocked with local magazines, plenty to entertain the crowd when escaping the sun, and a fully stocked kitchen and charcoal grill for preparing meals at the house. You will have the whole home to yourselves!
Our house is conveniently located at Milepost 6.5 and is pet and kid friendly. Amenities include a washer/dryer, outdoor shower, central AC, ceiling fans throughout, a high chair and pack 'n play, games for all ages from XBox guitar hero to trivial pursuit, TV/DVDs, and linens and bath towels. The home comfortably sleeps 8, with an additional twin trundle bed in the bunk bed room for an extra guest. We welcome pets along with our human guests, but just ask that you respect the home and let us know promptly if there is any damage so we can tend to those needs for our next guests coming in.
We know you will have a great time if you are looking for charm, privacy, and comfort, along with close proximity to water and dune activities like the Wright Brothers memorial, Jockeys Ridge, Kitty Hawk sports and rentals, and much more! Can't wait to share a lifetime of wonderful memories with you and your loved ones
Servicios y zonas comunes
Whole house to yourselves! We have service staff in the area if issues arise, but as far as checking in, there is a lockbox on the house that you will be given a code for the day of or day before your stay. The code changes regularly so you can feel safe that no others will have access, and you can get in/out at anytime of the day. The check in/out is 3pm to 11am each day, but sometimes you can check with us and we may be flexible if there are no other guests arriving.
Atención a los huéspedes
No check-in required other than a text to let us know you were able to get in and when you check out. Call or text ANYTIME with questions, and if anything comes up, our service staff is just around the corner!
No smoking in the house. Please use ashtrays if you smoke outside.
Sheets and bath towels are provided at the house. There is one king, one queen, two fulls, and a twin. If you do decide to use ours, please put them through the washer and start in the dryer before you leave (you do not have to put them away). Please wash any dishes, but you do not have to worry about putting these away either.
Guests are welcome to use the charcoal grill under the house. Please move the grill away from the house during use. Please dump out leftover coals and ashes and roll back against the shed after grilling.
As far as the house goes, we want you to feel at home and take advantage of all we have available. We only ask that if something gets broken or damaged that we are made aware... we typically have renters right after one another and we pride ourselves on all we supply for our guests; it makes things better for everyone if we can have our service staff replace items before the next guest checks in. Also, please try not to leave garbage in the can or items in the fridge. We supply trash bags under the sink, so shouldn't be an issue. Other than that, have a great stay!!
