Accessible by 4x4 only. Approximately 7.5 miles up the beach.

Shift into 4-wheel drive and head up to “The Kraken!” Located just one lot back from the oceanfront, this 4x4 home will be your family’s favorite vacation hideaway. With gorgeous views of the ocean and attention to detail for comfort and convenience, this is the perfect beach house for making OBX vacation memories. The beach access is just steps away from the home.

The great room on the top level of the home is open and bright, with a wall of ocean-facing windows to allow the beautiful view to fill the room. Kick back and relax in the comfortable living area, which includes an electric fireplace to warm up the room during chilly evenings. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to prepare meals for the duration of your stay. Fuel up for the day with breakfast at the 13-foot kitchen island, which includes seating and also serves as additional meal prep space. The included icemaker is well-equipped to keep your food and beverages cold during long days on the beach. Meals can be enjoyed together in the dining area nearby. Make your morning coffee and head outside to the deck to watch the sunrise over the ocean. The screened porch offers another outdoor living space with ocean views to enjoy, perhaps with a good book or an afternoon snack. There is a half bathroom on the third floor as well. One master bedroom can be found on the top floor, which includes a private bathroom and deck access.

Two additional master bedrooms can be found on the second floor of the home. Each master bedroom includes a private bathroom. There is one additional bedroom and full bathroom on the second level. A den on the second level serves as an additional common space to relax in, especially for kids or teenagers to enjoy some time away from the adults. Laundry facilities are available on the second floor as well. Abundant deck space can also be found outside on the second floor.

Outside, the focus is on fun in the sun. Make a splash in the private pool or simply lounge around in the sunshine. After the sun dips for the evening, head out to the hot tub for a restorative soak while gazing at the stars in the dark night sky. “The Kraken” is ready to make your family’s Outer Banks vacation dreams come true!

"The outdoor space was amazing. We also loved the upper level."

"Our party appreciated the kitchen stocked with pots, pans, storage containers, plenty of cups, and such. It was also nice to be able to have access to the NBA finals. The oversized dining table was used daily and accommodated our whole party of 11. The hot tub was hot hot hot… which was nice for our bones on the cooler days. The living room couch and chairs were so comfortable. We were able to have movie nights a couple of times and some couch naps. The pillows were also very comfortable which is super important when staying away from home. The extra large soft throw blankets were also a nice touch to have access to for extra comfort. The corn hole boards were also a hit out by the pool."

"I’ve booked with twiddy a couple of times & have never had a problem. Their pricing for houses is also more upfront than other companies"

"The Kraken is one of the most well appointed homes I have stayed in. It was obvious that the Gillis Family thought of every aspect in considering a persons needs and wishes while exceeding their expectations! From the welcoming feeling you get when walking into a professionally decorated home to the comfort of having all the amenities needed for a dream vacation, they covered everything to make the week about making memories! The furniture was perfect, the kitchen was a dream to cook in with no shortage of appliances, dishes or cookware and they added a personal touch of constructing a welcome book to their home with instructions to ease the stress of many questions that may pose as a time consumer! Your time in this home is spent relaxing, enjoying and creating memories of a lifetime because of the time they took thinking of everything! The pool was perfect for everyone, the corn hole was a hit and the chairs and arrangement of beach chairs was a plus! Horses were seen daily and there is plenty to do inside and out for kids and adults! Perfect location, beautiful home and any expectations will be exceeded staying at the Kraken!"
