The bungalow retains the original pine floor, tongue and groove paneling and exposed beam ceilings.

The Modest Family has owned and lovingly cared for the unit for over 70 years and invites you to rent your holiday today!

Avoid the crowds: - For many reasons autumn is a terrific time to visit the Outer Banks. Since days are still warm but early evenings are cool, it's much like getting two seasons in one trip. Ocean treasures such as shells and sea glass are abundant which makes them more readily found. The sea changes every day. It's behavior and hue change with the winds and you can recognize the many personalities of the Ocean while here. The commitment of the anglers lining the fishing piers and shoreline is palpable. The drum are running and a way of life, a tradition, returns to the Outer Banks.
