The space
Congratulations! You've discovered the #1 rated Airbnb couples getaway on the OBX. Our reviews consistently state that we offer extra clean accommodations at a great value. Responding to COVID-19 we have invested in a Medify 4-stage Air Filtration System that we use prior to all check-ins. The system uses a HEPA H13 filter (much better than HEPA) that removes 99.9% of particles down to .1 microns and should provide additional peace of mind for our guests, especially the many medical professionals that choose to stay with us.
Bethany's Joy comes fully equipped for you to enjoy your OBX vacation and has decor reflective of the Cape Hatteras lighthouse. The suite is an over the extended garage apartment with a private entrance from the private 2nd floor “tree porch”. Five person hot tub spa is perfect for those chilly evenings. We provide linens, towels, paper products, and spa robes. The living area includes a 55" Ultra High Definition 4K TV with BlueRay player, and a generous selection of family friendly DVD and BlueRay movies. High-speed WiFi code provided at check-in. Kitchenette includes Virginia soapstone countertops, full-size refrigerator/freezer, electric hot water pot, an electric burner, convection oven, microwave, and a Keurig coffee maker with a generous selection of coffees and teas. Private and safe lighted outdoor entrance. Vehicle parking available adjacent to space. The "Tree Porch" is nestled between large live oak trees and provides a private outdoor living and dining area. The spa is situated in a very private alcove adjacent to the Tree Porch. King bedroom with closet, dresser and nightstands. ***WE USE A BEDBUG PROOF MATTRESS COVER*** but please bring your own pillows for sanitation reasons. We do provide pillows for those arriving by air. Private bathroom has shower, sink and toilet. All linens and toilet paper provided. A washer and dryer are available in the main house for guests lodging over three nights. If needed, a third adult or child guest will be provided a twin Aerobed mattress that can be situated in either the living area or the bedroom. Children may also sleep on the sofa. Two single kayaks are available to explore the many miles of Southern Shores' canals, with all necessary safety equipment provided. Upon check-in, guests will be provided with a parking pass for use at three private beach parking areas. There is no public beach parking in our town, which ensures our beaches are less crowded than most areas of the OBX. In the middle of the tourist season you will especially appreciate this benefit. We love animals like many of you, but absolutely no pets allowed - no exceptions.

Guest access
Guests will have exclusive use of the Guest Suite: including the Tree Porch, kitchenette, indoor dining area, living and TV area, king bedroom, and private bathroom. Guests will access the suite via outdoor steps connected to the Tree Porch. We do not provide any meals, but will have some light breakfast items and coffee/tea available, along with a listing of our favorite restaurants and local grocery stores. Normally we do not use the spa when guests are staying with us, but we regularly use it at other times.

Other things to note
Our goal is to provide our guests with safe, clean and private lodging so they are able to rest, relax, refresh, and refocus on the important things in life. Our suite is ideally set up primarily for adult couples. One child accompanying parent(s) or a third adult can be accommodated. For any other situations, please contact the hosts in advance of booking to ensure we can adequately accommodate your party. We do not have a pool on the property, but we have a great big community salt-water pool that most people simply refer to as "the Atlantic Ocean!" While we cannot guarantee the water temp of the ocean even in the summer, the spa provides soothing hot water to soak in throughout the year. We recently had to raise our cleaning fee to accommodate for extra COVID cleaning and disinfecting expenses, along with the Medify Air Filtration System expenses. Cleanliness of the suite is one thing we strive for with each guest. Most reviews since we began operating in 2017 reflect that guests especially appreciate this aspect of their stay, just as we do when we utilize Airbnb lodging during our vacations. Please note that our baseline price of $85 per night is for weekdays during the off-season from November through February. The nightly rate goes up during the shoulder season and the nightly rate is significantly higher from June through August, ranging up to $195 per night during 4th of July week. We offer a weekly discount for guests booking at least 7 nights. We generally stay booked 90% of available nights throughout the tourist season so we encourage you to book your stay with us early (up to 90 days in advance when our booking window opens).

Location

Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, United States

We are located between the Towns of Duck and Kitty Hawk in the Town of Southern Shores. Corolla is north of us, while Nags Head and Hatteras Island are to the south. Southern Shores is a residential town with a very limited commercial area. Most anything you would require during your stay is located 2 miles away, including a Super WalMart, Food Lion, Harris Teeter, and a number of eateries. Two miles away to the north lies the Town of Duck, another popular tourist destination with the best boardwalk on the OBX, along with many other eateries. Corolla is a popular area to visit and it is 20 miles to the north. Many guests travel to Corolla to see the wild horses. Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills, Nags Head, Roanoke Island and Hatteras Island are located within driving distance to the south. There are many places to visit and things to see on the Outer Banks. You can just relax in the suite, or sit on the beach to your heart's desire. The beaches near our home are never too crowded due to the limited parking by permit only. We provide a beach parking permit for your use during check-in.

My husband Emery and I lived most of our lives on or near the Outer Banks of NC. We love the people, history, food, and the natural beauty of the area. Growing up, it seemed my family always had guests, and I grew to love having people visit my home. Hosting Bethany's Joy gives us the opportunity to help our guests enjoy this beautiful area just like we do.

During your stay
The hosts are grandparents and grew up along the Outer Banks of NC. There is an expression you will notice on some bumper stickers on the OBX: "As local as it gets." Our family's roots go back 10 generations here, so we are that and more. We live and work in the main part of the house, and one of us is normally available at all times to answer questions. We can probably answer any question you may have about the area and will gladly do so. When we are not renting to Airbnb guests, we use the guest suite to host ministers and missionaries visiting the OBX through a hospitality ministry we've established in loving memory of one of our daughters-in-law, Bethany Joy Wyns Midyette. Bethany grew up as a pastor's kid (PK) and was the great-granddaughter of an internationally known evangelist from Great Britain. Before booking, please inquire about our hospitality ministry if you are in full-time Christian ministry or missions for a special offer. We especially enjoy hosting those in full-time service to the One who created us, but our guest suite is designed to be a welcoming retreat for ALL visitors to the OBX. We believe in treating everyone that visits with us just as we desire to be treated by others - courteously and without prejudice. In addition to hosting, we normally utilize Airbnb whenever traveling from home and we enjoy meeting other hosts.
