Come and enjoy an authentic Old Nags Head style vacation. The home is decorated with vintage Outer Banks memorabilia where you can relax with peace and quiet. Whether you're watching the waves of the Atlantic Ocean or the Roanoke Sound you will be inspired by the views. There are few cottages on the Outer Banks like ours where you will find the views we offer and have a pond and the Cape Hatteras National Seashore Park as a back yard. The turtles in the pond love to be fed.

The beach access is only 100 feet away leading you to the best stretch of white-sand beach in Nags Head that is far less crowded and quiet. You only have to walk past six houses to reach the ocean. The Google map is out dated by showing Surfside Drive between the beach road and the beach but it was washed away a few years ago. A better photographic image can be found at Bing and click on the Bird's Eye view button. Neither web site is updated to the point it shows the decks and screen porch on the back of the house. Escape the hustle and bustle of the noise you will find north of here.

The top floor is designed for family gatherings with the large Family room flowing into the Dining room and an open Kitchen area. This area has cathedral ceilings with a paddle fan and large windows. A sliding glass door leads out onto a covered porch area facing the ocean providing a nice relaxing atmosphere to people watch or use the built in bench and table to have a meal outside or to play games and socialize. The covered porch leads to a large sun deck that runs along the south side of the house. The south deck has a garden hose for misting yourself on those hot days while you are acquiring that perfect tan. The south deck leads to a large sun deck along the west side of the house that is excellent for entertaining and watching the sun set over the Cape Hatteras National Park and the Roanoke Sound. There are plenty of electrical outlets spaced along the decks also. Relax in our wood deck chairs with umbrella stands and foot rests while watching the wildlife around the pond or in the park.

The Family room has a 40” flat screen TV with DVD player, board games and video library.

The Kitchen area has new cabinets with granite counter tops and has all the modern conveniences of home with a GE Profile Range and Microwave, dishwasher and a refrigerator. There are plenty of cooking utensils and eating wares. We have had a lot of compliments on how well the kitchen is stocked.

The Master Bedroom with a queen bed is located on the top floor and has a sliding glass door leading onto the south deck. There is plenty of storage in the cedar lined closet in the Master bedroom. It also has flat screen TV and a DVD player. The top floor also has a full bath.

The first floor is where you will enter the house from the stairs from the ground floor. The entrance is located on the covered porch facing Old Oregon Inlet Road. This porch has built-in bench seats and is large enough for entertaining and a great place for the kids to play if they want to be away from the grown ups.

There are three bedrooms and a full bath located on the first floor. One bedroom has hardwood floors with two twin beds; the other two bedrooms are alike with a Queen Bed in each. All bedrooms have large cedar-lined closets, flat screen TVs with BlueRay DVD players, paddle fans, alarm clock radios, mirrors, dressers and plenty of windows for natural lighting. The double-stack washer/dryer is conveniently located in a hallway closet under the stairs going to the top floor. At the end of the hallway is another exit door leading out to the back yard and enclosed outside shower.

The Southern Pirate is located on nearly 1/2 acre of landscaped grounds. A short one story house is located north of the lot, an un-developed lot is to the south and our beautiful pond borders the west side. The Cape Hatteras National Seashore Park and the Roanoke Sound is located on the other side of our pond.

The Ground floor has a double concrete drive leading under the house for multiple vehicles. There's also parking for one extra vehicle beside the concrete drive in front of the house. A secure utility room is located under the house for storage of your beach items. An extra refrigerator is located in the utility room. A garden hose is available to wash off your items.

A park-style charcoal grill is located at the base of the stairs. Local law prohibits any grilling on a deck or under the house. An enclosed outside shower with hot and cold water is located at the back of the house. A fish cleaning station for your day's catch from the beach or from your drive out on the beach at Oregon Inlet is located next to the outside shower.

Across the street is a jogging/bicycle/walking trail that extends for 6 miles.

The Beach Access is almost directly across the street from the cottage. Walk across Old Oregon Inlet Road to the small footbridge to the concrete bike path/sidewalk. Take a left and walk north a few feet to Oregon Road. Turn right and you will see the beach directly in front of you. The wide flat white sand beaches of South Nags Head are some of the cleanest beaches on the Outer Banks.

Please bring bed and bath linens and toiletries. We supply the bed top covers and pillows. Linens can be rented via local providers, ask for references.

About Eric Chandler

I started vacationing in Nags Head in 1980 at 13 years old and my mother and I bought our first cottage in 1994 in Kill Devil Hills. Whalebone Junction and the Oregon Inlet area has always been my favorite area so I was fortunate enough to be able to buy this home in 2011. I named the cottage 'The Southern Pirate' and it is located halfway between my two favorite spots. I decided to call it 'The Southern Pirate' for numerous reasons. Southern because my 9th Great Grandfather, John Chandler, arrived at Jamestown on June 10, 1610 aboard the ship Hercules and my family has been proud Southerners ever since. Secondly, because the home is located in South Nags Head. Pirate came from the Outer Banks reputation of harboring pirates. The map is out dated, Surfside Drive was washed away years ago and there's only six houses between us and the beach.

Eric Chandler purchased this house in 2011

Why Eric Chandler chose Nags Head

It's quiet and out of the way from the hustle and bustle. The beach seems flatter and the sand appears to be like white sugar.

What makes this house unique

The views of the Cape Hatteras National Park, Roanoke Sound, Atlantic Ocean and the wildlife around the pond and nearly 1/2 acre yard is always changing. The area is quiet and relaxing with the best white-sand beaches.

Best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

We took my 81 year old Aunt on vacation with us to Nags Head because she hadn't been there in 10 years. We stayed at the Southern Pirate and we couldn't have been happier. The house is clean, roomy and has everything that you need. We enjoyed the views of the ocean from the balcony and was just a short walk to the beach. Everyone also enjoyed going down to the pond to feed the turtles. We are already planning to return next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at The Southern Pirate and for the reveiew. I'm very happy your family had a wonderful time. September and October are excellent times to visit the Outer Banks, the water is warm, the birds are migrating, fishing is great, the crowds are few and the temperatures are very splendid. I hope you come back soon for another vacation. Thank you again!!

Family Stay

  • 4 of 5

The owner did a good job explaining all the necessary details and what was included in the house. We did love the turtle pond especially our grand daughter. The rooms and kitchen were nicely appointed and everything worked except part of the strap was missing from the high chair, but we kept careful watch at all times. Loved the gate at the stairs! What a blessing. Loved all the decks and all the chairs!

Wish there had been a sign posted outside on carport about the cactus in the grass. We found out the hard way. Later we noticed the note on the frig sometime afterwards. Saw a real nice metal sign posted on one of the other houses near by.

Those two minor things being said, I would recommend this place to anyone that needed four bedrooms.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at The Southern Pirate and letting me know about the high chair so I can replace it right away. Unfortunately the Outer Banks is full of cactus and thistles and I have been working on a fun creative way to construct an unobtrusive sign in the yard that will get posted this Fall. It was nice meeting you and your family during check out and I hope you come back soon.

The Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our weeklong stay at the Southern Pirate and have been unable to stop talking about what a wonderful time we had. The house was beautiful. Clean, spacious and wonderfully decorated. As an antique lover I particularly liked all the vintage Outer Banks touches throughout. The outdoor shower was a definite favorite for our family. I don't think anyone used the showers indoors the whole time we were there! My kids loved feeding the turtles in the pond and I particularly enjoyed the views from the decks. There were so many places to sit outside and enjoy it was hard to choose a favorite spot. The upstairs was so pleasant. When the large windows and sliders were open the breeze was magnificent. This was our first trip to the Outer Banks and we definitely left pieces of our hearts behind. From the gorgeous beach just down the road to the plethora of activities nearby there was never a dull moment. Eric was a pleasure to work with. Knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. With his advice we enjoyed so much of what the area has to offer from the wonderful performance of The Lost Colony, the Pirate Adventure and ghost tour in Manteo and a trip to Corrolla to view the wild horses. I would highly recommend the Southern Pirate to anyone looking to indulge in a fantastic family vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for choosing The Southern Pirate for your family vacation and I'm glad you were able to make so many family memories. The numerous deck options really make it possble for everyone to enjoy the outdoors, there's always something to see around the house. I wanted to make the outdoor shower different from all the others on the Outer Banks so I made it large and tried to cover the plumbing as much as I could with the driftwood tree trunk. I've picked up a few more interesting items to put in the house and can't wait to go back myself. Thanks again for vacationing at The Southern Pirate and come back soon.

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an outstanding time staying here. The house was the perfect size and clean. We were surprised to find all the beach materials in the storage shed. There were even sand toys for the kids to use at the beach. We didn't need to bring anything for the beach. Also, Eric was very responsive to text messages and phone calls. He seems very organized and willing to do what it takes to ensure you have a great stay. We will return!
