Welcome to heaven at the beach, an extraordinary beachfront house built for a heavenly vacation for your family and friends, “Heavens to Betsy!”

This 13-bedroom oceanfront home is primed for fun and features upscale décor and furniture. Located in the exclusive Pine Island Reserve, “Heavens to Betsy” is the largest house on a huge lot in the reserve, offering expansive ocean vistas, private beach access, and gathering spots perfect for a family vacation, multi-generational reunion, girls’ get-together or guys getaway. Fully one-third of the house is dedicated to entertainment space for gathering and relaxing. You will appreciate the mix of casual luxury, cozy spaces, and coastal style, all in a stunning setting.

Hospitality starts at the top. The upper level of the home is a focal point for happy gatherings, featuring a great room with gorgeous views. A beautifully appointed chef’s kitchen, complete with a coffee bar, island seating, and built-in banquette, was designed for easy meal prep, whether fancy fare or simple snacks. Enjoy your meals inside and out, with dining options and ample seating for groups large and small. A double-sided fireplace and screened porch provide just-right settings for conversation or games. The top floor is also home to three master bedrooms, one with handicap-friendly features, and each with deck access to enjoy evening views of the sunset over the Currituck Sound.

The middle level features seven welcoming master bedrooms and a cheerful bunk bedroom for the kids. There’s also a comfy efficiency bedroom that is ideal for essential overnight helpers such as a chef, nanny, or housekeeper. This level also features a circular ocean-overlook bar, where guests can enjoy morning coffee or an evening cocktail with lovely ocean views. Multiple seating areas provide places for quiet reading or small-group chats.

The terrace level has the “wow!” factor and is furnished for fun, with a state-of-the-art theater room, featuring a 130-inch laser-projection screen. A large game room with a stone fireplace features a pool table and table shuffleboard, complemented by a separate gamer space with a TV and lounge chairs. The indoor/outdoor ocean room opens to the pool and outdoor entertainment spaces, providing ultra-flexible seating, a bar, and a full kitchen just steps from the pool. This level is home to a master bedroom with a full bath. A covered entryway and elevator make unloading and provisioning easy and convenient.

Outside you’ll find a magnificent multi-level pool with a swim-up bar, tanning ledge and shallow kiddie splash pool. Enjoy luxurious lounge seating, as well as a covered cabana with an outdoor TV, comfy chairs, and a ping-pong table. Or relax under the stars in two full-sized hot tubs. Three full-size outdoor grills, two gas and one charcoal, make it easy to cook for a crowd.

Let’s not forget about the beach! Stop at the dune deck to take in the ocean view, then skip down to the shore via the easy, private walkway. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, daily cabana service is included with the house, so six beach chairs and two beach umbrellas are set up for you every morning, and taken down for you every evening. In addition, in June, July, and August, you’ll enjoy daily setup of a 10’ x 10’ shade tent with six additional beach chairs and a cooler full of ice for your refreshment.

As an appreciation gift to you in June, July, and August, the “Heavens to Betsy” homeowners will provide a catered Welcome Night dinner for your crowd on the first evening of your vacation.

Upon your arrival at “Heavens to Betsy,” you will be greeted by a Pine Island Reserve ambassador who will familiarize you with the home. You’ll also receive upgraded linens, as well as preferred rates and tee times at Kilmarlic Golf Club. For a small fee, you and your group may also use the Pine Island Racquet and Fitness Center, which is within walking distance. Note that special events are not permitted in this vacation home.

We know you’ll find “Heavens to Betsy” to be a truly heavenly vacation home. It’s sure to become your favorite oceanfront oasis and memory-making home-away-from-home in the Outer Banks!

"Warm and welcoming. Great layout."

Roberta   ·  Stayed July 2022

"We were very pleased with the home we rented called Heavens to Betsy. It was clean, freshly painted, new furniture, and there were many extras included. We had cabana and chair service daily, a ‘boil’ was prepared our first night which was outstanding, there were three fresh pies delivered which were delicious, and 4 free bike rentals for the week. We had rented this home before and would definitely do so again! Thank you to the owners for a wonderful week at your home. Your hospitality is over and above any other home we have rented!"

Patricia   ·  Stayed June 2022

"Beautifully kept and appointed home. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook full meals each night. Beautiful Creuset cookware, 2ovens (convection) and sharp knives! The outdoor living space and pool were a huge hit with the family. Set up is warm and inviting- we spent all of our time there when not on the beach. The tech in most homes are usually messed up by prior tenants or difficult to navigate, but not this home - everything was step up perfectly and easy to use with instructions to help. One of our favorite homes! The only complaints were one of the grills would not get above 200 degrees (but with 2 others that worked fine, was not an issue) and the Men really missed the Golden Tee arcade game that our previous home had - ah, but they faired just fine without it!"

"Big, well appointed, best collection of orange cast iron Dutch ovens I've ever seen."

"2nd year in the house. we love the location. needs a couple things fixed but other than that its a great house."

"The home is spectacular, has everything a family would want or need. Unfortunately, the pool was not working properly and I had to deal with it all week. Finally, the last day that we were there, the pool started to heat. Amazing place for family and friends to enjoy-everything in one place. The house was immaculate, the beds were comfortable, plenty to do for the kids... they would have enjoyed the pool day and night had it been working."

Janice   ·  Stayed September 2020

"We have LOVED this home! It has amazing space, well stocked and a great outdoor space. We are only moving for a year due to the lack of luck with fishing, if we have no luck at the new spot, we will be back! Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us!"

Eric   ·  Stayed July 2020

"Second year staying at HOHY - house is in fantastic shape. Kudos to the owners for taking pride in their home and ensuring that the experience is excellent year after year. In this C-19 world, the attention to cleanliness and detail is much appreciated. We will be back in 2021. From someone who has been coming to the outer banks for 40 years, dont hesitate to rent this home, it delivers on every level."

Janel   ·  Stayed June 2020

"Amazing!!! Can't express enough how much fun we enjoyed ourselves...it rained the first 3 days of our vacation and the house was big enough to entertain us all. We loved it so much we are coming back again next year!! 2021 can't come soon enough."
