Nags Head Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1.5 Bathroom,3 Sleeps - Beach Retreat In Beautiful Nags Head, NC

The Backyard - Nags Head, NC. Located in the most desirable location in Nags Head, this beautiful, totally renovated one bedroom is just 1/4 mile from the award winning beaches of Nags Head and one block from the stunning Roanoke Sound. The Backyard is the ideal retreat for a vacationing couple.

We have it all!! Beach chairs! Fishing Gear! Coolers! Bikes! Just show up with your bathing suit and beach towels and get ready to have a blast!

Completely renovated, our beautiful apartment for two is a true home away from home featuring one bedroom with a Queen bed, 32” HD TV, sliding French doors, custom tiled floor to ceiling mirror, one of a kind art, exposed beam hardwood ceiling with recess lighting, and a sitting area perfect for reading. The dresser provides ample storage space for clothes, shoes, and more. Blinds throughout provide your choice of sunlight or privacy.

With beautiful Island decor featuring unique art from the owner’s personal collection, the living room has a queen sleeper sofa that allows for an extra guest if the space is necessary and a 32” HD TV and love seat. The is cooled with central air for your comfort as well as ceiling fans throughout.

The fully equipped kitchen has a, microwave, refrigerator, gas stove with retro hood and hand laid stone backsplash, and everything you could desire to cook, prepare and serve a gourmet feast, heat left-over’s from the great assortment of fabulous restaurants surrounding our property or grill your fresh catch on the gas BBQ grill just out on the deck. The dining nook, adjacent to the kitchen has seating for 4.

The bathroom features a tub and shower and a beautifully tiled one of a kind mirror. Also, no Outer Banks rental would be complete without the essential outdoor shower! (Shared with owners) Enjoy your hot water shower under the sun or stars while the aroma of confederate jasmine fills your senses. Linens and towels are provided – just bring your beach/pool towels.

After your long day at the beach come home and relax on your own backyard deck and enjoy the beautifully landscaped grounds with Koi pond and gardens throughout. Take a nap in the hammock under the shade of the live oak tree! There is also a beautiful sound side pool in the neighborhood that is perfect for relaxing after a long day at the beach that is available to our renters for a daily fee. Also within walking distance of our apartment is a neighborhood sound beach. Here, you can enjoy spectacular views and sunsets! Bring your beach chair and relax.

We will make you feel right at home at The Backyard. This is a downstairs unit. We live upstairs. If you are coming to the Outer Banks to party, shoot off fireworks, and generally make a lot of noise this is not the place for you!! We live in a neighborhood of working people who are not on vacation. We will do our best to respect your privacy and stay as quiet as possible upstairs – just keep in mind that 3 people live upstairs and the normal amount of noise should be expected.

If you are looking for a Motel 6 or Holiday Inn type accommodation - this is not for you. But if you are interested in living with the real people of the Outer Banks - this might just be perfect. Our family also enjoys relaxing outside in the yard and you will most likely see Cary working in the gardens or Buster (our English Bulldog) running around chasing his favorite soccer ball with our daughter in the evenings after work. We are a laid back, fun family and offer to share our beautiful property with you and we are available to answer any questions you may have about local restaurants, etc. Whatever it is – having lived here for over 30 years – we’ve either done it, or know someone who has!

Completely restored, updated and uniquely furnished, we have missed no detail inside or out. You’ll find a cozy, turn-key-ready home away from home with everything you need for day-to-day relaxation. The property is a smoke-free environment.

Please check out our calendar for availability.

We are a family of three who live and work here on the beautiful Outer Banks with our Bulldog Buster. We love to travel and enjoy meeting new people!

Sandra purchased this apartment in 1999

Why stay in a cookie cutter hotel room when you can stay in a a one of a kind beautifully restored apartment filled with unique art and surrounded by lush, tropical gardens in the perfect location for enjoying the sound or beach?

Walk to the sound...ride your bike to the beach...What could be better?

RELAXING PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, 3 year old daughter and I rented Sandra and Cary's apartment for a long weekend. We had friends staying in a rental house and wanted to have a place to return to after a long day at the beach. Even though the apartment is below the residence of Sandra and Cary, it is private and relaxing. Their family is warm and welcoming as well. We enjoyed their beautiful backyard, patio and apartment. Everything we needed or didn't even know we need was available and Cary even hooked us up with fishing gear. We hope to return in the future and will be passing along their rental to friends. Thanks for sharing your home with us!

I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. It was a pleasure meeting your family and checking out the awesome shells your daughter found on the beach :)
Have a great day and we hope to see you again soon.

JUST WHAT WE NEEDED!!

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a relaxing, laid back vacation and that is exactly what "The Backyard" gave us! It was very neat and clean; appliances/air conditioning were in working order. When they say they have everything, they truly do have EVERYTHING to make your stay as fun and easy going as possible! The outdoor patio and grill were perfect to prepare and enjoy dinner or just relax. The inside lounge area was also a prefect place to unwind after a day at the beach or sightseeing. The beach was just a short 10-15 minute walk (or you could drive - plenty of public beach parking access). The property was just a short drive from many attractions and activities. Sandra and Cary were just wonderful; offering directions to places, checking in from time to time to see if we needed anything, taking a picture for us...truly perfect hosts! We also have to give their daughter, Quinn and dog, Buster a shout-out as well, they too were very sweet! We would highly recommend this place!!

WONDERFUL STAY!

  • 5 of 5
This place was great! My 8 month old son, partner and I stayed here for a couple of days and wish we could have stayed longer! It was a charming, clean, comfortable place...just the perfect size. I agree that the pictures do not do this place justice! We had everything we needed and thoroughly enjoyed walks around the neighborhood and down to the sound. Neat artwork and coffee table books to read. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

BEACH GET-AWAY

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was clean, fully furnished, quiet, and cozy. We had our own back entrance and plenty of privacy to come and go as we pleased. The location was perfect because we could walk or bike to the beach and still be able to retreat from the main beach traffic. I highly recommend this location to folks looking for a simple beach get-away.

CONVENIENT BUT QUIET

  • 5 of 5
Great place with very accommodating hosts. Lots of room and all the conveniences of wireless, TV and full kitchen. Nice quiet neighborhood, but, very close to restaurants and major attractions. Would return for another stay.
