About Michael VanCuren

My wife and I have lived on the Outer Banks for almost 30 years. We love the beach and own several rental properties. Of all our properties, Sails Commission is our favorite and the one we use as our home away from home. You may ask why we need a home away from home while living on the Outer Banks. Once you have spent your vacation at this house you will see why. This house is our refuge from the real world. Although the house is rented most of the time, we love the Outer Banks in the fall and winter. We spend many days wrapped up on the front deck enjoying the view. We may even get lucky and catch a view of an occasional whale traveling north.

Michael VanCuren purchased this house in 1999

Why Michael VanCuren chose Nags Head

Why Not. Once you stay here you will wonder why you stayed anywhere else. It is a great location and the cottage is perfect for families that don't want to travel with large groups. But if you are looking for a lot of fancy amenities this cottage is not for you. It is priced affordable so that the smaller families can be this close to the beach.

What makes this house unique

Ocean Views, Ocean Views and more Ocean Views....

Beach, Beach, and more Beach.

It is the reason you come to the Outer Banks to begin with.

Perfect Outer Banks Visit

  • 5 of 5

Property was just as described. The house was clean and everything was in great working order. Location is fantastic: right on the beach, and not offset like other nearby "beachfront" homes. Like previous guests, we watched dolphins swimming in the ocean from the deck. The owner obviously takes pride in the property. The owner promptly responded to all requests and was courteous in all our interactions. Five stars for the property and five stars for the owner. I recommend this property and will plan to stay here on future trips to the Outer Banks.

Owner's Response: Thank you Ryan for taking time to write your review. I am glad you were satisfied with the cottage as well as my performance as a home owner. I do take pride in my cottage and thank you for noticing. I know how hard it is to take the time for a vacation as well as save the money to pay for one. It is important for me that my guest are comfortable and enjoy their vacation in my cottage. I look forward to your next visit and maybe next time you can stay longer. Have a great summer and until then, all the best.

We had a great Spring vacation at the beautiful beach house in April, 2015. Our daughter had her spring break and we enjoyed our warm and relaxing days at this Ocean Front house. The view at the ocean was amazing.

My personal picture of the first morning here : "The best coffee here on the beach, the best morning when you can walk out of your bed to the shiny and sandy beach. Heaven.

The owners of the house are reliable and responsible. Mike checked on us a few time while we were driving to make sure we arrived and was able to access the house and have everything we need for our great beach vacation. House is very clean, with comfortable beds, pillows, blankets, full kitchen supply. Great stay and great memories! Thank you, Mike!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. You seem to have enjoyed all the simple things that I find relaxing also. Nothing better than that first cup of coffee overlooking the beach. I hope you will be returning soon, but until then, all the best.

Winter Escape

  • 5 of 5

Our December getaway offered probably the best beach vacation my wife and I have ever experienced for numerous reasons. This beautifully laid out house on the beach was homey and pleasant. We loved the ability to walk right out onto the beach and begin our morning sunrise walks with the dogs, and end the day with enjoying the mesmerizing starry nights and a Redbox movie on one of the many TVs. The owner, Mike, was very personable and accommodating with quick responses and availability if needed. We appreciated the huge window in the living room, the spacious decks, and listening to the crashing of the waves. We will definitely make this a ritual to return in the winter!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and the house met all your expectation. I use my cottage mostly in the winter also. A brisk morning walk on the beach will definitely stir the senses and the winter sky from the deck is better than a planetarium, only colder. I am glad you are planning to return and I look forward to your visit. Until next time all the best.

Perfect for the Beach

  • 5 of 5

The house more than met our needs. It lived up to all the positive reviews it has received.

If you want to be on the BEACH, this is the house. Quite, neighbors not to close and the sand is literally right off the front deck. You can see the ocean from the 2 sliding doors (both downstairs and upstairs) in the house. Hanging out upstairs is perfect for viewing the ocean. I would suggest this rental to friends that visit the outer banks. BTW.....it is RIGHT ON THE BEACH !!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am glad you enjoyed the cottage. I know you spent a lot of time touring the area and the cottage is a great place to return to and relax. You described the location perfectly. There is oceanfront, then there is being right on the beach. My cottage is right on the beach. I will be moving back into my cottage in time for the New Year and I am looking forward to the sound of the waves crashing on the shore and the clear crisp stary, stary nights. Hope you will be returning soon. Until then, all the best.

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My Sisters, Mom, Niece and of course the puppy dog enjoyed your place very much. The biggest + was that you offered your home for long weekend visits instead of having to rent it from Sunday to Saturday like so many other places for rent. We very much enjoyed our stay, loved the decor, the fact that the house was right on the beach, and the many amenities that were offered. The mornings watching the sun rise while drinking our morning cup of coffee on the upper deck were grand. The puppy dog was very happy she could be included in the girls weekend. Will definitely keep this place in mind for our next trip and would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a place to stay. Only one drawback (and wasn't really a drawback if you like super hard beds) The King size bed is VERY firm (a little too firm for Mom who ended up sleeping on the den couch a couple of nights without telling the rest of us).

Owner's Response: Thank you once again for choosing my cottage for your get away and taking the time to write your review. It seems that you took full advantage of the simple things my cottage has to offer. Morning sunrises on the upstairs deck are the best. My dog is getting up in age now and finds the upstairs deck to be her favorite spot as well. Yes I am flexible with arrival and departure days during the early spring and fall, but the summer months I maintain a strict Saturday to Saturday rental week. I am sorry that your mom found the king size bed to firm for her liking. Of all the furnishings, mattresses are the hardest to decide on when purchasing. I am so use to my mattress at home, I usually can't get comfortable on any mattress when I travel. I try to purchase mattresses so there is a variety of comfort zones, but most of the time it's an educated guess. On your next visit maybe one of the other beds will be more suitable to her liking. I look forward to you and your family's return and until then, all the best.

Second Time

  • 5 of 5

Once again everything was great, which made everything else just as good. The place is still kept in tip top condition. Mike once again kept in touch, making sure we had everything, and we didn't need anything, probably the best owner that we ever dealt with, looking forward to making it three!

Owner's Response: Thank you once again for staying at my cottage and the kind words in your review. The old place is a challenge, but I do what I can to keep it fresh. I hope you will continue to return and I encourage you to book early, my humble little cottage is becoming pretty popular. I love returning guest, especially ones like you that take such good care of my cottage. Even though we have never met face to face I feel like I know you from our phone conversations. Maybe your next trip we will meet in person. Until next time all the best to you and your family.

Although my cottage may be considered off the beaten path, it is still close to all major attractions such as The Lost Colony Outdoor Drama, Bodie Island Lighthouse, Pirates Cove Marina and much more. You are also in close driving range to many great restaurants and shopping. The convenient pedestrian path at the end of the driveway is great for bikers, joggers, or just a casual walk.
