The Historic Lifesaving Station #7 was built in 1912 and put in service until 1946. It is on the National Registry for historic homes. This station has housed the crews that have helped many a shipwrecked victim. The owners have preserved its authenticity while also upgrading the amenities to make your stay modern day comfortable. The house offers unobstructed, 180 degree panoramic ocean views and is located across from 2 great surf spots. Just steps to beach. Home is over 3,000 sq ft and is available year round, has heat, a/c, cable and free wi-fi. Located on the only section of the beach where there are no homes on the west side, the home offers oceanfront access and views with a semi-oceanfront price!

**Please note that several cities in the Outer Banks will be undergoing sand replenishment in 2017. Kitty Hawk is currently on that list. Sand replenishment MAY close the beach directly in front of the house for a few days. There is no way to determine what these dates may be. RepleLuckily, the Outer Banks has miles of beaches and as work is done, only a small section (500ft - 1000 ft) will be closed at a time, as the crews work down the beach. It is our understanding that the work crews work 24 hours a day, as to not close any section the beach longer than necessary. It should also be noted, that this has been on the docket since approx. 2014 and has not materialized as of yet. However, if it does come to fruition, we don't want surprised guests. Hopefully, for our guests, it will only amount to an even bigger and better beach during your stay. There are miles and miles of beaches in OBX and many ways to access them. There are multiple access points that are walkable from the house, if the one directly in front of the house is closed. Once this process is started, we have been told replenishment updates will happen occasionally over the following five years. We are not told the schedule.
