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 at the end of our 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. There's no busy road to cross to get to the path, so bring your bikes or rent them from on of the local rental companies and have them delivered to the cottage. 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 12.75%, then $49.00 (for Accidental Damage Protection) to the corresponding advertised rate. There are no hidden fees or charges.

About Aaron

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.

Aaron purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Aaron chose Nags Head

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first vacation in South Nags Head. We have been vacationing on Hatteras Island one or two times each year since 1993. We decided to try here due to access restrictions to Hatteras Island(as a result of Hurricane Irene), and we are glad to have done so. It is beautiful here, and I agree with an earlier writer, in all the years of coming to the NC shore, this house tops all others. Thanks!

Perfect family vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
This lovely cottage was everything it promised to be. Beautifully decorated, and very comfortable, we immediately felt at home and relaxed. It felt like we were actually oceanfront; the view of the ocean was mostly unobstructed by the one home in front and to the side of the cottage. We mainly cooked at home, so we appreciated the very well appointed kitchen. Little details made it easy to enjoy the beach with our children: the outdoor showers and the lifeguard right in front of the house made for carefree beach days. No need to keep track of keys with the keypad entry. The foosball table was a hit with the kids when we were relaxing in the house. We got up early most mornings to see the sunrise from the deck, which has lovely deck furniture, btw, and to go beach combing. Like other reviewers’ experiences, we found the owner, Aaron, to be very responsive and caring, and great to work with. This was our first trip to OBX, and we are thrilled to be returning to Good Day Sunshine next summer. If this cottage has an open week, grab it quick! You’ll be happy you did!

Nice house at a great location

  • 4 of 5
We stayed for one week at this cottage and everything was as described in the listing. From the kitchen and the living area we had a great view on the ocean. The kitchen is well equipped regarding cooking utensils and basic stuff like salt, pepper, seasoning - only lacking a few more wine glasses.
We liked the deck very much after staying on the beach for most of the day, because of the shade in the late afternoon.
BBQing was a bit difficult in windy conditions. For that it would be better to place it around the corner on the deck.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the feedback, especially from our “international” guests. We have recently replenished our supply of wine glasses. Unfortunately, due to safety concerns, relocating the grill is not a possibility. Its placement keeps the heat and flame away from the house, yet easily accessible from the kitchen. Most days it’s awesome to grill lunch or dinner while enjoying the view of the beach. Unfortunately, there are those rare instances when windy conditions do present grilling challenges.

Little Slice of Heaven in South Nags Head

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely LOVED our stay at the "Good Day Sunshine". The name is only fitting as we witnessed several great sunrises from the deck. It was a beautiful, well kept home in a great location. We loved the close proximity to the life guarded beach. When we weren't on the beach or exploring other areas of OBX, we were sitting on the deck enjoying the views of the ocean or watching the stars at night. We saw dolphins from the deck almost everyday. We collected a variety of different seashells during our stay as well. The house is minutes away from Jeanette's Pier, Bodie Island Lighthouse, and Jockey's Ridge State Park. It is also a good central location for day trips to Corolla (I.e. Wild horses), Hatteras, and Okracoke. Ghost Crabbing on the beach after dark was a lot of fun for our family.

The house was very spacious and easily fit 4 adults and 4 kids. The kids had a blast playing table soccer and the many board games. We also utilized the beach cart, chairs, and numerous sand toys. Unfortunately, we never got around to testing out the hammock or hot tub.

I highly recommend staying at this little slice of heaven in south Nags Head.

Fantastic Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a wonderful week at Good Day Sunshine. It was all the website said it would be. We wanted for nothing. The beach was right there and easily accessible. The deck, I think, was our favorite part. My sister and I arose each day to take a great sunrise picture, later watching all the action at the beach. South Nags Head was the perfect location too. We easily drove to Corolla to check out the wild horses and the easily drove around the corner of the house another day to drive the Cape Hatteras National Seashore Road down to see the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, also stopping along the way to see Bodie Lighthouse. A hidden gem is also Manteo, worth a look at across the bridge, adorable seaside village. Gary's Pier down the road was another gem of a find. Fishing pier with great food and music. Miller's Restaurant was another good restaurant and you just have to play mini golf up on Rt. 12. Aaron is a very responsive, caring owner and good to work with. We highly recommend this house to all. We hope to return in the future.

Great place at the beach

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful views from the upstairs area of the house. Really felt like you were ocean front. Everything was just like the listing. The foosball table was a big hit. It was well maintained and clean. The owners were very helpful and answered any questions that we had. We took in the Hatteras light house and attended The Lost Colony play in Manteo. Would recommend Colington Café and Basnight Lone Cedar.
Would recommend it to friends and family.

Great, great, great house!

  • 5 of 5
This house was so, so great for our family! We vacationed here with our young son (3), and another family with 2 young children (3 and 1). The house was just about perfect. One of my favorite parts of the house was not even mentioned in the description: under the house, taking up about 1/2 of the under house space, is a large covered, and fenced sandy area, complete with a cozy hammock and beach chairs. As families with young children, we loved this! It enabled our kids to continue to enjoy "digging at the beach" even in the rain, and even if the sun were to be too intense. The house is so, so, close to the beach, with great views from all over the house, and the sound of crashing waves through the open windows at night. We also really liked that the house has a key code entry, so there were no house keys to be picked up, passed around, or lost! The house also has tons of sand toys, a baby gate (for the top of the stairs) and a highchair. The owner of the house was very prompt in answering questions. We hated to leave (despite the unusual bad weather we had while there), and definitely plan to come back again soon. I would highly recommend this house-- my only hesitation is if I do so, we might not have such luck in securing this rental for our next beach trip!
