About Mary & Mark Heckhaus

Having grown up in Maryland, we got tired of the very crowded beaches and started going to the Outer Banks over 25 years ago. Our family just loved it! So after numerous years of renting we decided to buy a home for our family and friends to enjoy. We have always rented our home ourselves and decided a few years ago to try VRBO and add "Sandy Cheeks" as a rental. We offer a home that is just like your home...we try to think of everything you will need to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Our three children are grown but still love coming down with us or their friends. We have had some great memories here and we hope you do to!! Remember a beach vacation fixes everything!! Mary & Mark

Mary & Mark Heckhaus purchased this house in 2004

Why Mary & Mark Heckhaus chose Kitty Hawk

We are centrally located at MP 4.5 - in fact right next to several stores & restaurants within walking distance. We have a great modern open floor plan with three bedrooms in which two share a Jack & Jill bathroom. The other full bath is located in the main hallway. We have a unique upstairs loft with plenty of room to spread out - it is the kids/teens hangout. Equipped with cable & WiFi, there is a full size futon and a separate " loft bedroom" with door for privacy and daybed with two twins. We have some great books, magazines, puzzles, games, and classic videos to keep your family busy. We also have a CD player with FM stereo to listen to Jimmy Buffet while eating dinner at our large beautiful table that fits 10! We have a Weber grill to cook your freshly caught fish and a HOT TUB to enjoy after a long day at the beach. An assortment of beach toys, chairs and accessories are available for you to use as well.

What makes this house unique

Kitty Hawk offers lots of things to do but because we are in such a great location, we encourage you to take a day trip or two. If you head north to Corolla & Corova to see the wild horses...or head south to the famous Hatteras Lighthouse...or any of the numerous state parks like Pea Island. Try a day of fishing at one of the fishing piers or try hang gliding at Jockey's Ridge. While at our beach, make sure to walk north about 3 blocks to enjoy lunch at John's on the beach road or dinner at the Black Pelican or Barefoot Bernies...just a few of the great places to enjoy close to Sandy Cheeks!

Great Week in the OBX

  • 5 of 5

The house was great with lots of room and a few blocks walk to the beach! Kitchen had everything we needed, and the beach chairs and cart were very useful. Outdoor showers were really good to wash the sand off after the beach. Took a few dips in the hot tub, which was a nice bonus. Lots of places to eat/shop very close by. Owners were very responsive to questions. Thanks!!

A wonderful week was had by all!

  • 5 of 5

2 adults and 5 children (12-15) had fantastic stay at this location 8-11 thru 8-18. The house was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The beach is a 5 minute walk and was beautiful and very peaceful. We brought most of our own beach stuff but there are plenty of thing at the house to bring as well. The kids enjoyed the hot tub each evening as did the two adults who actually got to use it one night! ;) The owners were quickly responsive in any correspondence and the transaction went smoothly. I highly recommend the home for a stay in OBX and hope that my family is able to stay next year as well!

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

What a great week we had staying at Sandy Cheeks! The house is in the perfect location of the beach, without paying beach front prices! The 2 outside showers were an added bonus and convenient when coming back from the beach with 2 young kids! I loved having the clothes line under the house for hanging swim suits and towels. We had fun exploring, we went to the aquarium, Island Farm and on a Pirate boat adventure.....if you have kids, those 3 are a must! We had a ton of fun exploring the OBX, thank you for sharing your home with us and for being easy to work with, we can't wait to come back!

Great and convenient location!!

  • 5 of 5

A 3 minute walk to our beach spot and a 5 minute drive to all of to major stores and restaurants made this a perfect stay.

The inside is very well maintained, clean, and modern.

The 2 showers under the house outside were perfect for our family of 6 coming back from the beach.

My family highly recommends "Sandy Cheeks" and look forward to staying there again in the coming years.
