Our property is only 1/2 mile from the ocean, but is located in a shady stand of trees which can be viewed from the high windows in the living room. Two decks, one screened, provide great places for cook-outs, picnics and cocktails. Outside shower next to hot tub on deck on ground floor with outside firepit. Ground floor has a foosball table and seating area great for kids or teenagers. Also includes a sofa bed.
Main floor has large kitchen fully stocked for cooking and eating utensils, and dining area, master bedroom with queen bed and TV and bath, and a wood fireplace and large screen TV with stereo system in living room. There is an open deck with gas grill as well as a screened porch on this level. Next floor has two bedrooms with queen size beds and TVs, a full bath, also a loft office area, with TV and computer desk, as well as an extra double bed. Up from there is a small cupulo with single bed and balcony. Outside patio off the ground floor has a small fire pit that backs up to wooded area with trails that lead to the Nags Head Woods preserve. Covered parking area has 3 bays - can hold a boat or RV.
The house is at about MP 8 1/2, only a 31/2 mile walk to the ocean, or few minutes drive to the beach which has many accesses with free parking and is life guarded. The house also backs up to the Nags Head Woods preserve which is the largest Maritime forest on the East Coast and has a great visitor center and many trails, some to the Sound. You can head out from the house on trails and walk to the sound in about 30 minutes where you can watch the sunset. Only 2 miles away is Jockey's Ridge with a large hang-gliding school, also 2 miles away to Wright Brother's National Monument site.
There is great fishing from the shore, or nearby fishing piers. Also can do off-shore charters from Pirate's Cove or Oregon Inlet. Nearby Manteo, about 15 miles, offers great shops, the Lost Colony Outdoor Theater, the Elizabethan Gardens, and the NC Aquarium. The Outer Banks offers the best surfing on the East Coast. Many golf courses in this area. Many great seafood restaurants nearby or buy and cook your own!
Our property is very pet friendly (our dogs love the woods, but make sure yours have tick protection and heart-worm medication is up to date). Must be house-broken, of course!
We provide basic linens for all beds, and towels, but you might want to bring more beach towels.
Must be over 25 to rent.
Please feel free to call owner Jay with any and all questions any time at the number listed. We can also email more pictures.
We moved to the Outer Banks about 30 years ago and were blessed to be able to live and raise our family in such a natural, active environment. Now that we've retired we enjoy traveling, but hope to maintain our lovely family home. Since we're not here very much, we'd love to have others enjoy this unique area.
Jay Mankedick purchased this house in 2004
We do love the ocean, but also enjoy the feel of living in the woods. It's also a little away from the rush of traffic and busy tourist areas, but only 1/2 mile away.
