About The Owner

Our family began vacationing on the Outer Banks in the 1970's. My parents bought their first 'beach box' in Nags Head. After squeezing 13+ adults and children into this tiny cottage they decided to build their retirement home (Selah) just down the street. They purchased several other properties over the years for rentals. In the late 1990's my three sons and I moved to the Outer Banks. I assisted my father in managing the family cottage business. In 2006, I purchased Selah for my sons and I and over the years I have continued to remodel the house a bit at a time. So each year our return renters have something new to search for at the cottage.

The Owner purchased this house in 1996

Why The Owner chose Nags Head

My sons and I have always loved this cottage, most of all because of it's warmth and character which began with my parents design. Our favorite room in the house as we say is the second floor deck. Even on those cooler off-seasons days we enjoy this peaceful part of the house to relax and enjoy the sounds of the ocean.

What makes this house unique

The location of Selah in Nags Head is centrally located to all the best that the Outer Banks has to offer. Great food, entertainment, family friendly beaches and a wide variety of activities. There is a wonderful park nearby and several great swimming and recreation locations on the sound side. You can't miss taking a walk up Jockey's Ridge to fly kites or watch the sunset over the sound.

This cottage is a great place to create wonderful family memories and traditions. Whenever our family visits the cottage we have two traditions that are a must. The first is taking our morning stroll along the seaside to Nags Head Pier and back before breakfast. The second is to never depart without having our fresh seafood dinner send off. We have two of the best locally caught fresh seafood shops to choose from in the area, they are Austin's Seafood at MP 11.5 and Billy's Seafood just a short drive down Collington Road at MP 8.

Our time at the beach house with family and friends allows us an opportunity to relax and connect with one another while building new memories. We hope the same is possible for each of our guests.

Wonderful cottage. Highly recommend it!

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I had an awesome time at Selah Retreat. We loved our stay. The house is spacious, comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated. Gorgeous, with very nice bedrooms and a fully stocked kitchen, feels like home. It is close to the beach, shops and restaurants. A fantastic place to stay with family and friends. Highly recommend it! The owner, Britt is a wonderful person.

Thanks again Britt, we had a great time at Selah.

Wonderful Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week in this wonderful house and loved every minute of it! Easily accessible to the beach and all of Nags Head's activities. The house offers a wonderful porch with both a hammock and a porch swing and the ocean breeze makes it the perfect spot to read a book or catch a nap. Bedrooms were comfortable and inviting. Kitchen offered all the amenities one would need. I don't often write reviews, but the Selah Retreat was awesome enough to make me want to review it!

Wonderful beach weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I recently enjoyed a fantastic long weekend at Selah Retreat! Everyone was very impressed with the home - from the most seasoned NC beach visitors to the novices in the group. I picked the home specifically because of its size/capacity, close proximity to a beach access point, and its "grown-up" amenities like queen beds with pillow-top mattresses, which proved to be a WONDERFUL departure from 4 adults having to share a room in cramped bunk beds! (Though, even as a "grown-up", I must admit that the pirate themed bedroom was probably my favorite....) The kitchen has just about everything you could need...grill tools are provided, hand mixers, a crock pot, etc. There are also plenty of options to entertain your group/family on rainy or chilly days - not to mention plenty of space inside and outside for everyone to spread out and find some peace! It truly felt like a home away from home. A grocery store, an ABC store, restaurants, and a recycling center are all just a couple minutes away. Selah's manager Britt is a very accessible and reasonable person with whom it was wonderful to communicate and do business. I can't recommend this home highly enough!

Awesome Time. Great House

  • 5 of 5

Thank you very much!

We had a wonderful time at your house. Weather was great and the location was wonderful. Plenty of room to spread out. Everything was updated nicely. Will definitely be booking another fishing trip and staying here in the future. Everything we needed was already in the house, so we all felt like we were at our own homes.

Thanks again!

Perfect Location, Comfortable stay!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fantastic stay at Selah Retreat and just wanted to express how very comfortable the home feels, a very restful night's sleep after a full day of exploring the beaches and the attractions of the OBX! Everything you could possibly need was found in the roomy kitchen, with plenty of places to sit and relax out of the sun as well as such easy beach access. This home is just a short jog away from the Nags Head fishing pier, and is centered between the Wrights Brother's monument and Jockey Ridge, two places I had wanted to visit for some time. I highly recommend this wonderful home, beautifully decorated and appointed with fun beach accents!

Feels Like Our Second Home

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a comfortable and homey place to kick up your feet while on vacation this is the place! Selah Retreat is a wonderful cottage with the small extras that makes it feel just like home - comfortable beds with great mattresses, great decor that gets you in the beach mode, great deck where happy hours happen, fully stocked kitchen with up to date appliances just to name a few. It is very convenient having a large supermarket, coffee house, surf shops, etc. within walking distance. The large laundry room with lots of shelves for towels and linens certainly is a plus. And just a short walk to the beach!

I wondered what the word selah meant so I looked it up - it is loosely translated as "stop and listen." You cannot help but to stop and listen while staying in this cottage in this beautiful oceanside community. The sunrises are breathtaking, the ocean sounds soothing and Selah Retreat provides the perfect place to stop and forget about the work and other commitments in our lives. A fantastic place to vacation with family and friends. I will look forward to coming back in the years ahead for a Summer Retreat.

Selah Retreat is centrally located between the Atlantic Ocean and the Sound waters. There are many outdoor activities such as Kiteboarding, fishing, parasailing, jet skis, surfing and marathons. You can enjoy nature at Nags Head Woods, climb Jocky's Ridge, play on the beach and soak up the rays or take long walks along the sea shore. We are walking distance to a large YMCA, 5 miles from the Outlet Center, just steps from 2 coffee shops. The town of Manteo is only a short drive and offers many exciting adventures such as the NC Aquarium, Elizabethan Gardens, the history of Sir Walter Raleigh and the Lost Colony. Other activities on the Outer Banks include sailboating, the Wright Brother's Memorial, viewing wild horses, as well as exploring four Lighthouses. Our family's favorite restaurant Tortuga's Lie is only a short walk from the cottage. It is also a great locals hangout and was recently featured on The Food Network. Also walking distance to several banks and two grocery stores.
