THE SURF SHACK,CHARMING HISTORIC COTTAGE, STEPS TO THE BEACH, NAGS HEAD MP 11

Nags Head Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Across the street from the beach.

Take a step back in time and enjoy old Nags Head charm at it's best. The larger cottage on the property, 'Surf Shack', has just undergone a complete and total renovation. It has all the modern amenities we require, plus the old school charm of 1950s Nags Head. The smaller cottage, 'Surf Shack Too', is just beginning its renovation.

The Surf Shack Cottages are located on the Beach Road at MP 11, directly across from the Bainbridge Beach Access. We're just a few short steps to the beach and very close to the Nags Head Pier, restaurants, shopping and Jockey's Ridge. The Nags Head Pier has live music several nights a week in the summer. Our favorite activity (other than sunbathing, of course) is to take some cold beverages down to the beach and listen to the tunes from the comfort of our own sandy spot.

Surf Shack has 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Bright airy Living Room with vaulted ceiling, Kitchen and Dining/Sunroom. The largest bedroom has a queen bed and the two smaller bedrooms have full size beds. The cottage is equipped with a new flat screen TV, cable, high speed internet, AC, laundry and a gas grill. Enjoy coffee in the morning or a cocktail in the evening on one of the two front porches.

Sorry to the doggies, but Surf Shack Cottages does not allow pets.

Come stay at Surf Shack Cottages, we know you'll love it!

About Stephanie Jefferson

My husband and I have been renovating historic properties since we were married 10 years ago. It's become sort of a sick obsession that we can't quit. Most of our experience has been in the Historic Fan neighborhood of Richmond, but when these old school cottages became available, we couldn't say no. We've spent the last 2 years bringing Surf Shack One back to it's original condition - or even better!

Stephanie Jefferson purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Stephanie Jefferson chose Nags Head

We knew right away this was the Nags Head property for us. We are beach lovers and you can't beat the location, just a few steps to the sand. Plus, these cottages had so much potential, they just needed someone to show them some love and care.

What makes this cottage unique

The old 1950s Nags Head Cottages are becoming somewhat of a rarity. Many have been torn down to make room for the big mansions. Our opinion is that bigger is not always better, especially when it comes to old school cottage charm. This cottage provides a romantic getaway for two or a cozy place for mom, dad and the kids. Come relax for a bit at Surf Shack Cottages and we think you'll agree.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Only one thing can be said about the Surf Shack - WE LOVED IT – EVERY LITTLE INCH OF IT!! From the moment we walked in we felt so comfortable and at home. The porch was awesome – we sat out there each morning and had our coffee (or beer!!), and just fell absolutely in love with it.



We took it all in, we LOVED your very simple beach-inspired décor and just everything was so perfect. In our minds, it is EXACTLY what a little beach cottage should be – we weren’t afraid to sit, move, sleep, or come and go with maybe some sand on our feet – it’s what the beach means to us. We almost cried when we had to leave on Friday am.



The location was perfect and the walk to the beach was so quick – it was amazing.



I cannot tell you enough how much we loved it. We went home and are totally redecorating our homes to look more beachy like the Surf Shack.



The rates were just perfect too. I know that we’ll be back again next year.



Thanks for a great little place.

Cozy Home Near the Beach

  • 5 of 5
My parents, husband and I visited the Surf Shack in August. We absolutely loved the proximity to the beach! We also enjoyed the cozy living room and the board games that are provided.

During your stay, I would recommend having dinner at Blue Moon Beach Grill (beware: there is a long wait!) and visiting Jockey's Ridge to watch the sunset.

Our only complaint was that it was really confusing to figure out the TV/DVD system (there were 4 remotes that didn't have instructions and some were without batteries). Otherwise, everything was perfect!

I wish I owned it!

I am a General Contractor and I was impressed with the renovation. They very nicely upgraded certain features like vaulting the living room ceiling and making the bath elegant while leaving other touches in a cozy and more rustic state. House and beach are quiet and uncrowded.

SURF SHACK WEEK

  • 4 of 5
Was a very nice week - cottage fit the group very well... the outdoor shower was a plus.
it was very convient to the beach and just 1/4 up the road to where the rest of the family was staying in biking or walking distance. Stephanie was great to work with though I would not have more than 4 people stay 6 would have been to many for one bathroom. Only thing I missed was a dishwasher but for one week not so hard to deal with

Perfect Beach Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our week vacation (2 adults, 2 teens) and absolutely LOVED the house! It was the perfect size for us! Very beachy feel, clean and everything was so comfy that it felt like home! The location was just a few steps to the beautiful beach and the Nags Head Pier. The house even withstood Hurricane Arthur while we were there!!! I would highly recommend this charming cottage!

Perfect cottage in a great location!

  • 5 of 5
I rented the surf shack for a week in June for 4 adults. The location was very convenient. The house felt like a home away from home. Stephanie was very quick to respond to any questions I had. We were pleased that there were beach chairs to use, and my husband loved the outside shower! We hope to rent this house again next year.

charming cottage indded, a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed in Surf Shack 1 and had a wonderful time. The cottage was a clean and comfortable location for our Outer Banks vacation. We spent most of our time across the street at the beach, playing in the ocean and catching crabs. The pier has a great breakfast spot. We had a minor issue with one of the appliances, but Steph was easy to work with and provided multiple solutions. I highly recommend staying here. It has the charm of an old Nag's Head cottage with updated comforts and amenities. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Car: recommended

Our cottage is about 100 steps to the sand, just across the Beach Road. We are in walking distance to the Nags Head Pier, Lucky 12 and Tortugas. Just a short drive to Jockey's Ridge, Wright Museum, Historic Manteo and lots more.

Please note that Surf Shack is located right on the Beach Road. The road can get busy, particularly on the weekend. Most guests don't have a problem with this, and find the proximately to the beach makes up for any traffic noise.
