Our home is affectionately called the 'tree house' as it is located in a 100s year old maritime forest. There are wooded hiking trails within walking distance. Our place is close to restaurants and dining, the beach, great surfing, fishing and music. Also, my husband will give surfing lessons and advice, and I am a gourmet chef who will gladly prepare local seafood you purchase for all four of us at least one night of your stay!

The space

The bedroom is a cozy one and you will have your own private bath. The kitchen is open to you to prepare meals and we have a Keurigg coffee maker for the mornings where you can enjoy the start of the day on our 550 sq. ft deck, or in the comfort of the living room or kitchen. I have become aware that when you list on airbnb, if you offer access to the whole house, that is what they list. We do offer that, but your room is our guest room with its own private bath. We do live in residence and are here most of the time as we are local artists and work from our home part of the time. You will have access to the house at all times. One of our guests just commented that staying here is like living in a gallery!

Guest access

You are welcome to anyplace in the house except our bedroom! You are welcome on the spacious 550 sq.ft. deck, back and front yard.

Interaction with guests

We are a very friendly couple with a very friendly dog. We will be happy to help you have a wonderful vacation in any way we can.

- we are very easy going, have one Chesapeake Bay Retriever, currently 18 months old who is extremely friendly. We also have an outdoor shower you are welcome to use. We have bikes you can use to ride to beach, or you can walk the less than a mile to the beach. We have lived here for 30 plus years and have a host of information on the best places to dine, relax, surf, fish or play in general. We also have a 550 sq. ft. deck with gas grill and electric smoker you are welcome to use. We are located in a hundreds year old maritime forest that you would most likely not even see if you booked elsewhere on the OBX. You are welcome to have friends over, but maybe not a huge scale party. We request that you ask us in advance.
Please respect our dog, who is a working duck hunting retriever full time and don't 'wrestle' with her, she is stronger than you are! She is very friendly and cuddly and will love you all.
We are after all a beach house, so please avail yourself of the outdoor shower, or spigot to rinse off before coming back from the beach.

Ellen and Victor were fantastic hosts. They were welcoming and generous and I had a wonderful time staying with them. The house is in a beautiful neighborhood, very close to the beach with all kinds of fun stuff to do nearby. Would love to come back for a visit again sometime!

Ellen's place was wonderful! We enjoyed the location, and Ellen and victor's suggestions for fun things to do and places to eat were spot on. Irie was wonderful to my two big dogs too! We went to OBX to celebrate my birthday and were very pleased to find the most beautiful bouquet of flowers waiting in our room! ❤️❤️❤️ They also treated us to wine and wonderful conversation! We were very pleased and would definitely suggest them for your next trip to OBX!
