Paradise by the Sea

OBX Beach Paradise by the Sea Kitty Hawk Exterior_2

Pool is open mid April to mid October! Hot Tub is open year round!

Paradise by the Sea is located in the heart of the Outer Banks, close to great local restaurants, shopping, and family attractions. This Old Nags Head style home has easy beach access, a private swimming pool, and large fenced in yard with an affordable price tag!

This comfy beachy cottage is the perfect beach getaway and has everything you need for a great family vacation. You and your family will enjoy an easy walk to the beach access through the private neighborhood path (just 3 lots from the ocean!). Paradise by the Sea is situated on a quiet street and features a private 10×20 pool, hot tub, and recreation area for fun in the evenings with air hockey and foosball table.

Our spacious floor plan includes two living rooms and a bright and sunny kitchen with plenty of seating for the entire family.

Relax with your morning cup of coffee in the screened porch or sun deck. Spend your days sunbathing by the private pool or splashing around with the kids at the beach. Come back to the hot tub and soak your stress away under the stars in the bubbling hot tub. Enjoy cooking your meals out on our charcoal grill by the pool or preparing them in the well stocked kitchen…and if you don’t feel like cooking you’re just a few minutes away from the best restaurants the OBX has to offer!

If your family has been looking to turn their vacation into wonderful memories, look no further because you’ve reached your OBX Beach Paradise!
