Come and enjoy a relaxing South Nags Head vacation. 'Good Day Sunshine!' is beautifully furnished and decorated where you can relax in peace and quiet. Whether you're watching the waves of the Atlantic Ocean, the dolphins or pelicans playing, or the beautiful sunrises, you will be inspired by the views.

The beach is literally next door. It begins only about 75' from the end of your driveway. You will enjoy direct access to one of the best stretches of beach in Nags Head that is far less crowded and quiet. You even have the added security of a Nags Head Lifeguard Station positioned directly at the end of our street. That's great piece of mind, especially with 'little ones'. (Google Maps may still show Surfside Drive between our cottage and the beach but it was washed away a few years ago.) Escape the crowds and the noise you will find near the 'Big Road'. Walk the beach early in the morning to find beautiful sea shells or sea glass (our favorite). The wide sand beaches of South Nags Head are some of the cleanest beaches on the Outer Banks. Come sit, read a book, sunbathe, or enjoy a meal on our spacious and comfortable sun deck.

The Family room has a flat screen TV with DVD player, board games and stereo.

The Kitchen has plenty of updated cabinets with granite counter tops and has all the modern conveniences of home with a sealed top range, Microwave, dishwasher and a refrigerator. There are plenty of cooking utensils and silverware.

A storage area is located under the house for storage of your beach items. A foot wash is located adjacent to the stairs. A gas grill is located on the deck just outside the sliding glass doors. An enclosed outside shower with hot and cold water is located on the ground level.

Just down the street is a jogging/bicycle/walking trail that extends for 6 miles along Old Oregon Inlet Road. This concrete multi-use path is excellent for taking an afternoon stroll or biking or rollerblading with the family. Outlet shopping located only miles from house. Located in a quiet area with little traffic and uncrowded beaches. Don't forget to be at the docks of Oregon Inlet (10 Minutes away) at 4:00 to watch the charter fleet come in with their fresh catch of the day.

Make your plans to stay in this wonderful semi-oceanfront retreat. 'Good Day Sunshine!' is the perfect venue for rest and relaxation. The area is quiet, but located only a couple of minutes from shopping, first-class restaurants, fishing and entertainment. This is a great location for your next summer vacation!

Please bring bed and bath linens and toiletries. We supply bed top covers and pillows. Linens and a variety of beach equipment can also be rented via local providers, please ask for references, if interested.

Please make sure to check our up-to-date availability calendar for the dates you are interested in.

To calculate the total cost for a particular week, simply add 11.75% (occupancy taxes-tax rate increases to 12.75% for stays after Jan. 1, 2014) and then $49.00 (for Accidental Damage Protection) to the corresponding advertised rate. There are no hidden fees or charges.

Over the years my wife and I vacationed in South Nags Head and had fallen in love with it through our many visits. Like many, we dreamed of one day owning a beach home. In 2009, our dream finally came true. While it was in rather rough shape when we found it, we knew we could turn it into a place that our family would enjoy. Over the past few years, we rented out our home through a local property management company, but now we want to offer it directly to our guests ourselves.

NOTE: Google Maps may still show Surfside Drive between our cottage and the beach but it was washed away a few years ago.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2009

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!!

The proximity to the beach makes this a very special property. You will LOVE vacationing only steps away from the beach. Also, we live only two hours from the cottage, making it very convenient for us to visit.

Wonderful House!

This was the first time we stayed in Good Day Sunshine. We loved it! Foosball was a huge hit with the whole family. The extra blankets in the closets were a nice touch for the cooler evenings. We played Scrabble & Sorry Disney Edition out of the game collection. House was cozy. The beds were comfortable. The house was very clean when we checked in. Loved the easy check in & keyless entry. The view from the deck is even better than the pictures. Hot tub was nice. The owners are good at communicating with the renters. Look forward to staying at Good Day Sunshine again.

I have been vacationing on the Outer Banks since I was 6 years old, but due to circumstances of work and $$, I haven't been back since 2005. I love South Nags Head (have owned 2 properties there) and I sure picked the RIGHT place to stay for my 'homecoming'! Good Day Sunshine was an amazingly comfortable home, well appointed with everything we needed, and an amazing view of the beach and surf. The owner is very attentive to any needs or concerns you might have...it was just a PERFECT week!
I would highly recommend this wonderful house for your upcoming vacation...

Perfect place to stay, right in the middle of the islands. The house was just as described with all the extras. The owners have thought of everything you might need, and the decorations are great. It was our first experience on the outer banks and we loved every minute of it. It was a very good experience with VRBO, the owner was great, answered every question I had in a very timely manner. Stay here you won't regret it!

Beach, Sun and Fun

We were looking to get together with our friends from the east coast and spend time on the beach. We were told Nags Head was the place to be, and naturally we looked for places that had great ratings. Fortunately, Good Day Sunshine was available. From the get-go, everything was EASY. Aaron runs a great operation. He is very responsive and helpful with any questions you may have. We arrived and were wow'd by the location. It may say 'semi-ocean front', but believe me, it's ocean-front. The porch is the best for hanging out at all times of the day (mornings get a little intense with the sun), but the afternoon, evenings are perfect. The beach was great, nice for bocce, walking, kite flying, swimming, etc...The home was the perfect size. We enjoyed all spaces. The hot tub was phenomenal, and the hammock was great for an afternoon read/nap. If we ever came back with children, we thought it would be perfect to come here with another couple with children. The space seems just right. Without hesitation, I would recommend Good Day Sunshine to anyone. We loved our time there and hope that others will discover this gem and enjoy it as much as we did. Thank you Aaron and family for your place. Cheers! - Trey & Heidi, Matt & Becky

A Great Cottage With A Great View!!!

We were looking for a smaller house this year and wanted to be closer to the ocean. This house met
that and then some. The views were superb, if you didn't want to go to the beach but have the same experience you could sit on the deck and take the great view in. When we got to the house, Aaron the owner was there doing a bit of maintaince, he gave me a quick tour of the house, he was very welcoming. The house was smaller than in past years but never felt crowded, we enjoyed every aspect of the house, it was really a treat to be able to eat outside every night with such a great view. We have been going to the Outer banks for over 20 years and this was another great week. I was a bit concerned renting with VRBO but it was flawless. I would absolutely recommend this house.
