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.
