About The Owner

We moved to the Outer Banks in 1985. Our rental is on the ground floor; we live upstairs. Mitch runs the art gallery and frame shop, and during the winter I teach second grade. We have two children who enjoyed growing up in Nags Head. Their summers were filled with daily time at the beach. We have fond memories of Sunday afternoons on the beach with neighbors and friends. Both children grew to love the water, with our son becoming an avid surfer. We enjoy walks on the beach with our dogs as we hunt for sea glass. As a family who likes to read, Mitch and I are spend time on the deck with a good book, an early morning cup of coffe, or an evening glass of wine. After a year of teaching, I am always ready to spend time at the beach with a good read! We also enjoy riding our bikes or walking in the neighborhood.

Why The Owner chose Nags Head

We chose to offer a rental in our neighborhood because it is a quiet, family-friendly area. Families and couples can come here and be as busy or as laid back as fits their preferences. We especially like being centrally located on the Outer Banks.

What makes this apartment unique

When on vacation, we prefer time to relax and enjoy family and friends away from the hectic every day pace. For us this includes clean, comfortable accommodations at an affordable price. That is what you will find in our rental. The 2-minute walk to the beach makes it easy to be on the beach at any time of the day with no parking hassles. We are within walking distance of coffee shops, restaurants, galleries, a bait shop and grocery store. Being centrally located makes it an easy drive to many wonderful attractions such as the Wright Brothers Memorial, the new historical landmark Jennette's Pier, Jockey's Ridge State Park, a soundside beach, Nags Head Woods, and to Manteo to visit the historic waterfront or attend the outdoor drama 'The Lost Colony' as well as shopping areas. Being between the highways offers a safe place for walking, bike riding, or running. We have two fenced patio areas offering a quiet, private place for relaxing. The YMCA is only half a mile from our home. With our guest passes, you and your family will have full access to all the amenities offered there. Since we live here, we can answer questions about a local services you may need or desire including where to find local produce as great prices and directions to the freshest seafood!

Lovely, Comfortable and Relaxing Outer Banks Home

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, we were looking for an affordable, well-maintained, clean townhouse, house or condo rental near the main Outer Banks attractions, and with easy beach access. There were two in our group, so we didn't need to break the bank with one of the 6 bedroom places. We searched thoroughly and saw the amazing reviews for this property.

We got absolutely everything we were looking for, and so much more. As so many say, the pictures do not do this place justice. We felt at home within minutes of stepping inside. The property was just as described. Everything was so clean and well-maintained.

The beach is two blocks away. I carried a cooler full of ice, and my only recommendation, get a cooler with wheels. With what you'll save renting this place, you could buy 50 wheeled coolers, or a refrigerator and Lowe's delivery to install it on the beach. Seriously, you can hear the waves from the rental, so it's not far to the beach.

The owners are friendly, easily accessible, and knowledgeable of the OBX/Nags Head area. We ate almost every meal at places they recommended, and was pleased with each place. We particularly enjoyed the Red Drum, which is probably 500 yards from the rental, so we walked there.

We also visited mostly places the owners recommended. Bodie Island lighthouse was nice, close by, and we were able to get into a group to climb to the top. The view from the top was amazing, and apparently they just opened the inside of this lighthouse for tours recently. Seeing the Wright brothers memorial was also very enjoyable. Otherwise, we spent most of the days relaxing and fishing on the beach. We liked that the beaches weren't crowded, like some of the other beach tourist destinations.

Ultimately, I would recommend this property to almost anyone looking to travel in a group of 2-4. Probably the best fit is a couple with 1-2 small children, followed by a vacationing couple.

Fabulous Stay by the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We came with our three kids for Columbus day weekend and had a fabulous time! The walk to the beach is short and the shoreline is beautiful! We cooked all our own meals at the house, and the kitchen had everything we needed. The rental was actually bigger and nicer than we expected. They had board games and children's books that the kids really enjoyed. We were also able to use beach towels and sand toys from the house. All in all a fantastic place to stay with kids for a weekend at the beach!

Last Minute Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We decided last minute to get away for the long holiday weekend and we stumbled across this gem. The location was what we wanted, the price was great, the reviews were amazing, and we thought this must be too good to be true. We quickly booked it and could not have been happier! The owners were very nice and helped us with recommendations of things to do and places to eat as this was our first time to the Outer Banks. The apartment was spacious, clean, and had everything we needed from towels, to kitchen supplies (including condiments and spices), to beach toys and books (for all ages and interests!). Grilling and enjoying dinner on the patio was also a nice treat. The location was great too and we enjoyed a short walk to get frozen yogurt every night (we tried 2 different close by places). My husband and I, along with our 1.5 year old really had the best time and could not have had a better vacation! We are looking forward to another vacation in Nags Head hopefully here and hopefully soon!

Wonderful, relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been vacationing in Nags Head for 17 yrs. Every year we go over the 4th of July. In the last 10 yrs we have rented thru VRBO and have never been disappointed. This year we "hit the jackpot" This apt is everything you could ever want. I hate to refer to it as an apartment, which makes you assume it is small. It is very spacious and clean. The owners Christine & Mitch are perfect owners. They want you to relax and enjoy their property. Christine has this place decorated beachy and comforable. I asked Christine if we could just move in forever LOL. Everything she told us about the rental was true, NO SURPRISES. The location is great, the patio was delightful for evening cocktails. It was three of us, myself,husband and close friend. The 3 of us decided that we finally found OUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME. Thank you so much Christine & Mitch for a wonderful vacation and making us feel like family. We will be back, over and over again....

Owner's Response: Thanks Maggie for your review! Mitch and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting the three of you! I appreciate your kind words about our rental. I am never quite sure how to refer to it. You're right "apartment" gives people the idea that it might be small. Since we live upstairs, it's not really a townhouse either. Maybe I should just refer to it as the downstairs house! When I am hauling groceries upstairs, I often wish I lived in the downstairs house. No steps to climb is a rare find on the Outer Banks. Please tell Charlie I am trying to think outside the box with regard to the flowers I leave on the kitchen table. I can do the decorating, but flower arranging is a challenge! Perhaps he will come back and give me some pointers! Meeting the three of you was a lot of fun! Hope you will come back soon!

Perfect beach week with 2 small kids and dogs!

  • 5 of 5

Our family decided to have a quiet beach vacation in OBX this year. Our priorities were: low-cost, pet-friendly, ocean side, and preferably with a grill. This house fit all of the criteria. We have a 3 year-old and 1.5 year-old, with 2 small dogs. Usually the dogs are left with family, but this time we had to bring them with us. We were a bit concerned about the layout of this property since it's a house with the owners occupying upstairs and the apartment downstairs. We crossed our fingers that the dogs behaved while we were at the beach, which thankfully they did. Christine and Mitch were fantastic hosts. They provided us with everything we needed in the property, brought out cornhole for us to enjoy, and allowed the use of beach umbrellas, chairs, and toys for the kids. This rental is in a perfect location within easy walking distance to the beach, at least one good restaurant, and an awesome frozen yogurt shop. Tons of places were a short drive away (coffee shop, Harris Teeter, ABC store, pharmacy). We really couldn't have asked for a more ideal spot for our family, and assuming we stay the same size, would not hesitate to return to this location!

Owner's Response: Thank you Mike and Tanya for your kind words. It was indeed a pleasure to meet you and your lovely girls. Glad the girls enjoyed playing in the yard. We are working on expanding our yard games. I purchased a set of giant yard dominoes, and Mitch is planning to paint 4 square and hopscotch games on the parking lot. I appreciate the comment about noise. It really is not a problem, and I need to make future guests aware of that. Thanks again for choosing us for your Outer Banks vacation. Hope to see you again!

Seafood Festival

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations more than met our needs. Being centrally located made it easy to get to restaurants and attractions. The late October visit allowed us to avoid big crowds and that was worth the trip in itself. A block to the beach and absolutely no crowded beaches. We have been to the OBX several times but this had to be the best visit yet. I have already recommended this rental to two other people.
