Introducing Game Changer! Formerly known as On a Whim in the Sun Realty program, this comfortable and conveniently located oceanfront home is under new ownership for 2021. As the name implies the home is scheduled for major renovations for the 2021 season so stay tuned as details are added.

This house has all you need for a relaxing vacation! Plenty of beach and easy access to get there with the private boarded walkway. Take a stroll on the beach in the evening and then come home to a wonderful kitchen and a dining area large enough for the whole family to enjoy together. End your day with some movies in front of the flat screen in the living room, or soak in the hot tub on the deck or the jacuzzi tub in the loft.

For rainy days and evenings, enjoy a television in every bedroom, 8 flat screens, and WiFi to watch your streaming videos or post your vacation photos to show the friends who aren't as lucky as you! Coming in the off-season? Enjoy low prices, cool evenings, and a wood burning fireplace. Fireplace available from October to April.

There are plenty of things to do just across the beach road or the bypass. Head to Jockey's Ridge and fly a kite. Get some local fish and seafood just across the street to bring back for a clam bake or oyster roast. Hit the shops for some OBX gear or check out the consignment and art shops nearby for something truly memorable.

**Please note that there is open staircase to all levels, therefore young children will require supervision.

This house was wonderful. The location was fantastic. I saw reviews about the stairs being terrifying and I was a little nervous about them. They were fine. Yes you do need to supervise young children, but they should be supervised on any stairwell. The house is very well stocked. The only issue we had was some of the beds were a little uncomfortable. Unfortunately, our vacation was cut short due to hurricane evacuations, but I'm sure we would have continued to enjoy the house if we had been able to stay longer. I would definitely rent this house again.

The location of this house cannot be beat. The ocean is literally at your doorstep and it is amazing. We enjoyed being able to walk down to the beach early in the morning and go back and forth throughout the day without lugging all our stuff. The crows nest to sit on and take in the view is one of the biggest perks to this house and something we noticed not all other houses have. Unfortunately, the house does have some issues. It really does need updating and a good top to bottom clean. Wall to wall carpeting throughout a pet friendly beach house does not make sense and does not look or feel clean. We had a few maintenance issues with the AC (which maintenance was called and very responsive to) and again, overall things need to just be updated throughout the house. The final thing, which I did not dock a star for because it was stated in the description and a picture was shown, but should be noted none the less; this house is not safe for small children (or pets). The open stairwell that drops down 3 stories is terrifying. We bought safety netting prior to our stay and used our suitcase as a barricade but it was still nerve wracking and scary. Without young children or small pets this would not be an issue.

great place but needs some maintenance

We have rented this home for the past 3-4 years and have enjoyed it but this home has some issues that need to be addressed. The AC in the front rooms is weak and those rooms are warmer than the others. There was a water leak that we reported last year during our stay and unfortunately it leaked again this year during a rain storm (reported it again) dining room floor gets very wet. There was another water leak in the upstairs queen bedroom bathroom (dripping from around light fixture), 3 outlets in upstairs master Queen bedroom didn't work at all nor did the one on the upstairs deck. Shower stall doors in King master bedroom were not stable and fell out of the track, maintenance came and "fixed" it so that we could shower but it needs to be replaced as it is old and missing some parts. Maintenance couldn't figure out why the water was leaking in dining room or why the 3 outlets in the bedroom didn't work. Maintenance was good about trying to fix the things but there is only so much they could do. The kitchen is well equipped and has plenty of dishes etc...... even had a Keurig this summer! All in all this is a good house, convenient to shopping, restaurants etc.....loved the beach deck and we spent most of our mornings there watching the sunrise.

Thank you for your review and reporting the general maintenance issues during your stay. While we apologize for any inconvenience we appreciate you allowing us to address the issues during your stay. We are glad to see the family could enjoy vacation and appreciate all the features this home offers. Hope to see you in 2018! ~The Kill Devil Hills Office

Lovely home!

"On a Whim" is a lovely home! We loved the floorplan and the large bedrooms. It was very clean. There were a few maintenance issues that we reported; the front bedrooms on the lower level didn't cool at all, the lighting in the entrance was very dim and there was no hot water in the hall bath shower on the lower level. All that being said we still enjoyed your home very much! Even met a friend of the family on the beach and she told us the story of how "On a Whim" got its name!!
- Dana Shiflett Jun 2017

Nice but...

This was a nice home but its really not suitable for children and dogs because it has 3 floors and an open stairwell with an open center where children and dogs can fall all the way down from 3 floors. We had to block the sides of the steps so they couldn't lean over railings. Ocean view was great and we still had a great time. More railings need to be added making it closed on sides more so there are no safety issues.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. Guest feedback is very appreciative and helps us to know what is important to our guests. We do mention in property’s description that this home has an open staircase to all levels, however understand that a picture is worth a thousand words. We will gladly try to capture additional pictures during the next updated photo shoot in the off-season months. We are thrilled to hear that everyone had a great time and enjoyed the ocean views. They are indeed fabulous and a favorite among many vacationers. Thank you again. ~Kill Devil Hills Office

Perfect everything!

This house is perfect for large families or family reunions! Fully stocked kitchen with everything you could possibly need for your stay. The separate sundeck/ seating area at the end of the private walkway is perfect for morning coffee!

Loved It

Spent a week at On A Whim with my son and daughter-in-law recently. Had a wonderful time. House has everything you can imagine for a wonderful vacation. Very convenient location and close to the beach. Absolutely loved the sunrises! The only thing missing is a programmable coffee maker. Love to have that ready when I get up in the Thank you for sharing your home with us.
