“Beach Haven is an outstanding place to enjoy a week.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Beach Haven is an outstanding place to enjoy a week. You get to enjoy an extremely confortable bed in room #3 (only 6 rooms there !!! ) closest to the beach which is about 100 feet from your door, not oceanfront but oceanside. A small hop to the dune and you are there!! We experienced one of our best vacation stays at this fine establishment during July 8 thru 13th 2013. Raina the manager was absolutely the most helpful anyone could possibly ask for. The kind of person anyone can talk to, and she placed her guests accomdations as most important. The guests were families wih kids, and couples of all ages. It was nice. It was quiet at night. It rained for 3 1/2 of the 5 days we were there but we still had a great time.

The Corrola lighthouse, wild horses and Whalehead club are 20 miles North. Within 30 miles south are many lighthouses, national seashore, Wright Brothers National Park, monument and others. Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge has a visitrs center, trails, great birding and an Ocean beach to boot !!!
A very fine Aquarium is over in Mantao with a fine collection of critters. They have an 18 month old octopus the really showed off for our camera that day we visited. The Air conditioning was extremely fine with 95 degree days that week

The Beach Haven is centrally located in Kitty Hawk, NC, absolutely great for an Outer Banks visit. Raina has all the beachgear you can rent for dirt cheap so you don;t have to haul all your stuff to OBX. She has a gigantic freezer stocked with ice for customers beach use. The facility is very well maintained and cleanliness is of high regard here. Her gals and guys on housekeeping were very nice and really cared about your services. If we get back to the Outer Banks we would gladly spend another week at the Beach Haven. We are greatfull for Raina's attention to all the small details that make a vacation stay so enjoyable.

Close to all the great eateries in Kitty Hawk within 2 miles, several you could walk to if it's not 95 out.
Some great eateries : -I got your Crabs, Henry's, Trio wine, beer and cheese, and Spankys Grille
were all great while we were there July 8th~13 this year.

Don;t even think of staying at another place !!! Beach Haven is fantastic!! Home away from Home.

Same as before. No brainer. Super close to beach and convenient. Staff is outstanding. The manager is very helpful. Rooms are always clean. Everyone should try this place out if you want a clean room and within just a few paces to the beach.

I cannot say enough good things about this property. The rooms are well equipped, clean and comfortable. The staff is incredible--friendly, helpful and very accommodating. I have recommended it to my family who live in North Carolina for their next trip to the Outer Banks.

If you are looking for a place to stay that has a friendly, personal feel to it, this is your place. The staff treats you like you are part of the family, the rooms are very clean and access to the beach is great.

The innkeeper at this motel is the secret to its success. She is an extremely energetic, detail oriented person. The rooms are set up in the typical roadside motel fashion, bed, sofa, sink area next to tiny bathroom. Every inch of space is utilized to make guests more comfortable. Rooms are equipped with refrigerators, microwaves, dishes, and even a water dispenser. She thoughtfully put chairs on the porch for my husband, myself and two kid sized chairs for our little travelers. Linens and rooms are kept impeccably clean. Beach equipment is available for a very low rental price, even beach towels. The innkeeper will even let guests do laundry for $1.50 per load in her high-capacity machines. At the end of a long road trip, that was a tremendous help to my family. The motel is about 5 steps from an uncrowded beach. The only downside to this location (and to most of Kitty Hawk) is that walking to restaurants and shops is difficult due to lack of sidewalks.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 3 which is closest to the beach.

The rooms were wonderful, well equipped and comfortable. The owners/staff were helpful, efficient and friendly. The room we had did have some equipment for cooking/eating, but be aware that it is very limited.

There is all kinds of things to take to the beach - chairs, toys, coolers. And the deck in front of the hotel is wonderful.

As Kitty Hawk can be a bit of a crowded nightmare, it's nice to be away from the mobs.

Be aware, though, that this place is not directly on the beach, but across the street. It's an easy walk, but there is a significant dune that will block any view you might have hoped to have. The street can get a little busy, so it's probably not an option to let small children navigate it on their own.

The beach is nice and not crowded. Great place to fly a kite, then you can say "I flew at Kitty Hawk"!

It's been 9 years since I traveled back down to the Outer Banks and the Beach Haven is where I stayed 9 years ago in a little room by myself. It was a perfect place for rest and relaxation. Joe
was such a sweet man and wonderful host. I'm sorry to hear that he passed away. This time I
traveled with my 9 year old grandson. I was going to go alone again to see the ocean, but he
wanted to go with me this time. The Beach Haven is still a beautiful place. The grounds are immaculate and so well taken care of. I had the same room I had the last time I was there and
it was so tastefully redecorated and agaIn so clean. My grandson loved this place as much as
I did. Raina, the manager at the Beach Haven, is so nice and friendly and made us feel so welcome. We can hardly wait to go back there again and recommend this place for anyone
that wants a peaceful and quiet place to enjoy the sun and the beautiful ocean.
