My family vacationed each summer at OBX from 90-99 and then my wife was taken by cancer in late 02. I purchased a condo in Sect. F (03) and sold it 04 to buy present home. My current wife Ginger and I love our home and the Outer Banks. We try to improve our home a little each year to make it more comfortable for our guests. We live in Delaware, OH, and get to use our home 5-6 weeks a year. Because we specialize in renting to young groups our home is booked every week from mid-May thru August. Book early and try our off season weeks and shoulder weeks for some really good discounts.
Alan Kochheiser purchased this House in 2004
Why Alan Kochheiser chose Poplar Branch
It was a good buy at the time and we took it from a 3 bd, 2.5 baths to 6 bd, 4 full baths, 2 halfs, and a 12 X 24 game room and added a hot tub. We had a lot of fun designing the new addition in 2005 and it makes for a fun home. It is also located in a neighborhood that is all residential, but across the road from a great golf course and within 2 miles of many wonderful shops, restaurants, grocery stores, unique businesses, and a movie theater.
What makes this House unique
Alan enjoys running events in the Outer Banks. In the fall there is the OBX Marathon/Half Marathon. During the summer months they have many activities scheduled at the Whalehead Club (5 miles North) and many are free.

The house was just as expected and perfect for our family Thanksgiving celebration. It’s well laid out, just a short walk to the beach, and super close to a grocery store. We look forward to coming back again sometime!

Everything was great!

Alan's house was a perfect place for our family of 15. It has enough room and a nice size patio to relax by the jacuzzi and pool. The pool is a dipping pool however had ample room for all to enjoy. The kitchen was well equipped. The main attraction of the house was the bumper pool table which we all truly enjoyed. The beach is a short walk and be sure to pack a flashlight to experience the ghost crabs which own the beach at night (depending on the season) . We can't wait to come back and spend more time exploring all that OBX has to offer
