My Wife and I have owned and operated the Sea Spray Cottages Cottages (a 1950's cottage court) since 2007. We were fortunate to be able purchased the ocean house located in the same area. The ocean cottage has a ground floor guest suite. We are happy to share this space with guests. Generally, we will not be in residence when guests are staying at the apartment.

John Vollino purchased this cottage in 2012

Its perfect, easy, and relaxing.

Direct ocean access in an affordable, comfortable and nicely appointed space.

Perfect beach stay

  • 5 of 5
This is a perfect, cozy little ground-floor apartment in a small cottage right on the beach. There's a raised walkway over the dunes to the beach, with a nice deck at the top of the dunes, where we stood to watch the pod of dolphins swim by in the mornings.

Everything is in perfect condition. It's clear the owners have put a lot of work into making it a nice place to stay.

The location can't be beat: The pier is a quarter-mile to the north; the drive-through beer store is a quarter-mile to the south. One mile from Jockey's Ridge State Park, Kitty Hawk Kites and Sound Side Beach.

We are on the far side of middle-age, and don't see at night as well as we used to. It was wonderful being able to walk to the pier or a little bit further to Lucky Twelve Tavern for dinner.

Just What The Doctor Ordered...

My Husband and I could not have been any happier with this rental property...It was quite and charming and the owner was very easy to work with!! For the Price we could not have asked for anything better, it was an all inclusive price which included our pet and taxes. For an oceanfront space it was absolutely perfect!!!

Cozy and wonderfully quirky place on the beach

  • 5 of 5
This space is in on the ground level of the owners' home. Makes you feel like one of the family. The weather was perfect, beach beautiful, and the deck overlooking the beach was a wonderful place morning and night. The apartment's shower was slow to drain but the outdoor shower was wonderful -- took a hot shower under the stars. The space was filled with everything you need and was comfortable -- the decor was quirky in a way that told us the owners spent time thinking how to make the place memorable and charming. Private and shielded from the main road by natural vegetation. Definitely coming back. Even more wonderful cottages for rent on the other side of the road. Very cute with a warm, vintage look, and with more space for larger families or groups of friends. Owner even gave me a tour ... what a nice guy he was.

What a perfectly quintessential stay at the beach!!! The private apartment was so cute and had everything you could need - at a great price. Just steps from the most beautiful beach, water, and dunes. Not to mention all the other activities, restaurants, and shops that were right down the beach road if you got bored with the beach - which is why you came there to begin with.

The owners of the property were very respectful of your privacy, needs, and comfort. They are the kind of people you would be friends with, if you should ever be so lucky to have a place at this beach!

I did not expect to be so taken by Nag's Head - but I will return and a lot of the reason was this great stay. Thank you Sea Spray!

The Guest Suite Nags Head, NC review

  • 2 of 5
Our first experience after arriving at this rental involved having a window panel in the bathroom fall completely out of the window when the window was opened. When I spoke with the owner about this it did not seem to surprise him so i assume it was a known condition. The next issue was with the mice infestation. It was necessary to keep all food items in either the refrigerator or microwave. There were mice tracks throughout the kitchen every day even though we kept it very clean. On the refrigerator we found a note from the owner stating that the shower drained slowly. We opted to use an outside shower rather than stand in several inches of shower water while using it. Lastly the grill outside, although usable, has not been cleaned and the burners would not provide enough heat to grill meat efficiently. However the side burner worked quite well so we used it to cook from.
John, the owner, came to the property and was extremely friendly and apologetic regarding the issues we experienced. It is not likely that we will rent from John again.

Owner's Response: Older cottages are not without their quirks or “character.” Generally, our guests understand that and actually seek out our non-cookie-cutter accommodation. It is most unfortunate that this guest did not realize that a ground floor flat in a cottage that was built in 1927 would not have some oddities. Granted, mice are a problem, one that I would have immediately addressed; in fact I did, once I was notified. It is, however, unclear why I was not notified for 6 days (exterminator subsequently reported problem eliminated). Likewise, my maintenance man fixed the windowpane that fell out the next day (I note that I was promptly informed of that concern). I do appreciate commentary as the unit is new to the market and does have some kinks to be worked out; however, the guest suite is not for everyone. We offer a very unique product, at a reasonable price, in a great location right on the ocean and most, if not all but a handful, find our offering charming.
