Beautifully furnished with complete amenities, including wifi and 50' widescreen TV with blue ray DVD. Short walk to Outer Banks pier.
Away From The Beach: Oregon Inlet Fishing Center for deep sea fishing, headboats, watching ships come in with their catches (this occurs at 4:30 PM every day, is free and lots of fun to watch). Visit the nearby town of Manteo to see Elizabeth II sailing ship, living history, and great exhibits at the Festival Park. Attend the Lost Colony outdoor drama and see the Elizabethan garden. Hike at Nags Head Wood Preserve and see a maritime forest. Go crabbing with the kids because they are hilarious to watch. Bicycle along the beachfront path.
A Great Day Trip: Leave early in the AM. Go south over the Bonner Bridge, heading down to the Hatteras lighthouse. Go swimming at the beach afterward. Keep going south to take the free ferry to Ocracoke. Have lunch on the dock. Check out the national park activities and Howard Street, a quaint old street that's more a path. Drive around town a little--it's tiny. Stop by the Ocracoke lighthouse (you can't go in). Head back north stopping for a swim at one of the wonderful beaches on Ocracoke. Try to get back over the Bonner Bridge by 4:30 PM to see the deep sea fishing fleet arrive at the Oregon Inlet Fishing Center.
Beach Activities: Sunset is the best time. Sunrises can be beautiful. Coquina Beach has great facilities and warmer water because of the gulf stream. Sound beaches are great for kids. Kite flying heaven. Bocce ball and volleyball. Surf fishing. Boogie boarding and surfing. Night hikes with flashlights. Bonfires (permission is easy).
Perfect getaway. Clean and roomy. Kitchen a delight for cooking meals.Lovely sunsets. Walk to the beach. Close to restaurants and shopping.Owners attentive with No questions or problems left unsolved.What else is there?
Absolutely beautiful home!
This is now my dream house, I loved the kitchen, simple and elegant.
Everything was in great condition, floors and bathrooms clean, living room furniture inviting. There were a couple of times we chose to just hang at the house and relax.
we were there with 3 of our children (11,13,15) and my mother (72).Two of my sisters had rented homes in Nags Head also, ours was the envy of all.
Best stocked rental home I've ever stayed in, shampoo, lots of towels, kitchen with spices and flour and sugar... just like home. Nice porches, two outdoor showers, and a hammock swing. not to mention bikes, which my husband used and loved!!
They even had a couple of boogie boards and beach chairs. We had driven all the way from Texas and were limited as to what we could take with us.
Access to the beach was a little bit of a walk (could we have used some of the walkways marked private?) We did find two public entrances with parking and used those for the most part.
We ate at Owens, a seafood sample platter fed 3 of us. Ordered fresh steamed crabs and scallops from Whalebone Market.
Food Lion prices were reasonable. Scammel's Ice Cream Yummy... and they offer surf board lessons, which I hope to take next visit.
Donna and the property manager were always available to answer questions.
We began to call it OUR HOUSE...This was such a warm and welcoming home. I cant thank Donna enough for sharing it with my family. THANK YOU!!
Listening to the ocean from the light, airy living room was the perfect, relaxing vacation we were looking for. The kitchen is beautiful and well-stocked with utensils, pots, pans, etc. Lots to see in the area, great restaurants, and a beautiful, quiet beach (in the off-season, anyway!). Comfortable, clean home with friendly and accommodating owners. Thank you!!!
South Nags Head is a quiet residential community bordered by the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. The beach road is the only main road through the area, and there's not a lot of traffic here, which adds to the tranquility. Extensive shopping and restaurants are nearby(about a mile and a half) but cannot be seen or heard from this house, only 800 feet from the ocean, in a child-safe cul de sac. The beach is long, clean and lovely with a bicycle path alongside for many miles. Besides the beach, there is a wide variety of local attractions that have something interesting for all age groups: historical sites and lighthouses, a beautiful aquarium, deep water fishing, surf fishing and including a fantastic new pier just 1 1/2 miles north and a comfortable older pier just 1/2 mile south plus water sports of every kind imaginable, a marine forest, golf and tennis, and much more.
