“Perfect Winter Break”
Reviewed 26 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

My sister and I had a fantastic trip to Olive and Kemp Cottage. It was perfect in every way, restaurant suggestions great and we had one gorgeous beach day. HUGE shells on the beach and all in all, a delightful little get-away. We're already talking about going again.

“What a comfortable cottage”
Reviewed 22 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We just got back from spending 5 days in this comfortable little cottage! Amy has a great eye for decorating! This cottage is laid out so well. Every inch of space is used perfectly! The small kitchen area is equipped with everything you need to fix a meal. The dishwasher cleans very well. I made sure I took dish tablets to use every night to wash what we used. There were no dish towels, but I had brought extra hand towels and clothes and used a set of them while we were there.
The living area is very comfortable and the large screen TV was Great!
The king-sized bed is one of the most comfortable I have slept on. (We have a tempurpedic at home, and it is hard to travel and sleep on uncomfortable beds!)
The bathroom is small, but laid out very well. I loved the little cabinet between the sink and tub, It was very hand for storing makeup kits, brushes and combs, hair dryer, razors and etc. (Although, there is a hairdryer there.) The top was granite and nice to keep towels, brushes and etc on!
The washer and dryer is in a storage building between the two cottages. Very convenient and cleaned everything well.
You have a nice porch, patio with charcoal grill and patio furniture in front of the laundry room. Also in the back yard there is a fire pit with chairs around.
Everything you need to enjoy the Outer Banks. It is centrally located to travel to all parts of the Island. Amy even sent us a list of restaurants and gave us good recommendations on the best ones. She is very helpful and friendly, helping you to have a very relaxing visit.
The perfect place for a couple and even their dog! Thanks so much, Amy. The coupon for the donuts at Duck's must be used! Those were the best donuts we have every had! We enjoyed every minute of our vacation!

This cottage was just as described and more. It was spotless and tastefully decorated. The layout was perfect, the kitchen great and the bed was really comfortable. The cottage was nicely remodeled and some things reminded me of the "fixer upper" show! This was our first visit to the Outer Banks and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. It's perfect for a couple's getaway. The beach is a 3 minute walk and a couple of restaurants are a short walk away. Perfect location for bike riding or walking the dog. We will definitely return.

“Clean, Comfortable and Convenient”
Reviewed 17 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We enjoyed our recent stay at Kemp and Olive cottage. The cottage had everything we needed, was clean and convenient to most anything you would want to do in the Outer Banks. Prior to our stay I had several questions for Amy and she was prompt and helpful with her responses. I would recommend a stay at this cozy cottage if visiting the outer banks!

My husband and I stayed here for,our 10th wedding anniversary. It was the first time away from our kids in, literally, years. The cottage was just right for a romantic getaway... small, cozy, and beautifully furnished. We truly enjoyed our stay. I would recommend this cute little cottage for anyone looking for a romantic vacation for two.
