“Raina Rocks”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Great little motel across the street from the beach. Raina, the manager, could not be more helpful. We were on our way to Cape Hatteras decided to stay another night instead. A very quiet location and still close to everything. Not for those seeking a resort experience more of a nice little get away. We would be more than happy to return.

Love this place. It is small, just a few units. Raina is awesome, so sweet. It is just so much better than a big hotel. This is where I will stay from now on, when I get to come to OBX. I actually almost didn't write this review because I don't want the place to become too well know. It's newly remodeled, neat and very clean. Right across from the beach. Bonus of a wonderful hammock right outside our room. They even have chairs and umbrellas for the beach for a very small fee, as in a dollar each a day. I love this this place.

We stayed 4 nights at the Beach Haven, and would stay here again. It is a small little beach front motel, crossing a small road to be immediately on the beach. It is a good value for beach front property. The location is great for the Outer Banks, close to restaurants, shopping, beach, etc.

Wow, what an amazing internet find, this small resort is definately a hidden treasure! We wanted a quiet, beachfront location and Beach Haven certainly ticked all the boxes. Beach Haven is located across a quiet side road from the beach and within a short distance of great restaurants. Our room was bright, airy and clean and Raina was the perfect host. We will definately be back to stay!

well just returned from another awesome stay here! the place has been totally remodeled and refurbished....made up to date in bedding...furniture...shower...art work...carpet! quaint and low foot traffic....very private....very small....just perfect! room rates are low. you'll not find a better motel with so many amenities as beach haven. and clean! and smells so amazing....we had to ask them what they use! febreeze and carpet powder! we've had the large rooms....we usually get the smallest rooms. they serve the purpose for sleeping and showering! the pelican nest to view the ocean across the street has a bench and a rocking chair with planters! there is a shower and hose to hose off feet and beach stuff etc. there is a charcoal grill! and this is really great....they rent brand new beach umbrellas...chairs...$1....yes...one dollar per day! don't haul your beach chairs and umbrellas down here...they have it! and they have boogie boards! and ice! paying is on the honor system...you plop your dollar down in a jar! same with ice! but ice is $2 for a big bag! nice TV's....all flat screens suspended on wall mounts....fridges...microwaves...coffee pots and real silverware if you bring food back to room which we always do! it's so convenient. and the beach...directly across the road....navigate the dune and you're right on the beach! couple steps to paradise....really! and the live on site property manager...raina....she's great and loves to chat! she's very informative...always helpful and wants to go out of her way to do what she can for everyone! you really can't walk to nice restaurants....hop in your car...drive two minutes and you're at the black pelican or hurricane mo's....excellent food! beach haven has off street free and plentiful parking behind motel! one way in...one way out driveway....a loop around to come and go....works very well. there are only 6 units....never a crowd....off season or high season. with 6 units....how could it possibly get crowded? and since there are no other motels or private houses on beach....the only people on beach in front of motel are motel guests! you have the beach all to yourselves! oh....one thing! the beach...in the water and and out on sand...it's very grainy to tiny pebbles. it's not one of those white powdery soft sands....it's tan in color and it's pretty hard on sensitive feet! bring water/sand shoes for comfort! you won't be sorry. the water is clean and clear. Beach Haven will be your new "go to" place in the outer banks! it's been ours now for 10 years at least and keeps getting better. Raina is always refreshing the place....always something new.

Room Tip: there is no bad room here! just decide if you want a sofa or not....that gives you more room if yo...

My friend and I stayed here this week for a night while traveling through the area. I wish we could've stayed longer! Beach Haven is located directly across the street from the beach and down the road from a few restaurants. Raina took my reservation when I called and she was incredibly helpful, gave specific directions for us to find Beach Haven since she knew we'd never been to the area before. She also checked us in and showed us around the property. I really enjoyed and appreciated her hospitality, especially since we only stayed one night.

The room was fantastic - very clean and there was a ton of space. There's fridge, microwave and water cooler in the room. There's an outdoor shower which is really convenient when you come back from the beach and two patio areas for guests to use as well. I highly recommend staying here and look forward to a return visit!

We wanted a quiet vacation in a small place close to the beach. Beach Haven was just that and so much more. Located between MP 3 & 4 on highway 12 (the beach road) in Kitty Hawk, NC it's just across the road from the beach. Our room was right next to the observation platform with a great view of the ocean and lovely landscaped property of Beach Haven. The room itself was well appointed with a queen bed, couch, coffee table, desk & chair, dresser, TV, wi-fi, frig, microwave, coffee maker, dishes & flatware, extra pillow and blankets. Oh, did I mention bottled water? The manager, Raina, was very helpful and friendly. She made us feel right at home with great ideas on where to eat. We'll be back, I'm sure!
