About John Vollino

My wife had been vacationing on the Outer Banks of North Carolina since she was an infant and introduced me to the area when we were dating. We purchased our first vacation cottage a year after we were married in 1991 and purchase the Sea Spray Cottage Court in 2007. The cottages were built in 1950; there are four in total (only 2 are currently available for vacation rentals).

John Vollino purchased this cottage in 2007

Why John Vollino chose Outer Banks

The cottages were slated for demolition and sale of the bare lots. We purchased the cottage court to save them from the wrecking ball. Our intent is to preserve and revitalize a little piece of old Nags Head so that we and others can enjoy a bit of history and vacation in a comfortable and uncomplicated way.

What makes this cottage unique

At the Sea Spray Cottages you will not have to vacation with 25 of your closest friends and family. Given the size of the cottages, you can enjoy your vacation with your immediate family or with a few close friends at a very affordable price. There is plenty to do in Nags Head including enjoying the beach, which is across the street. Cottage #2 has a large comfortable front porch were you can sit, enjoy your favorite beverage and watch the world go by.

Fall is a great time for this cottage

  • 5 of 5

We booked four nights and were very pleased. It was comfortable in a retro way. Though on a fairly busy street, due to the off season booking time, the traffic was not an issue. We lucked out on the weather and were able to spend the days with windows open and lunch on the back deck. You can hear the ocean when the waves kick up. Loved the 65th birthday outdoor shower even in November! We would book it again in the off season.

Sea Spray Cottage on Nags Head

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location, house was very nice and roomy. Short, 5 minute walk to beach and many places to explore in the area. We had a wonderful stay, very relaxing and quiet atmosphere. The front porch was a wonderful place to sit and catch a breeze.

This cottage was great! Very comfortable and beachy. We loved the outside shower and it was absolutely perfect for a girls weekend with four of us. We loved it!

This was our second trip back and we'll definitely go again!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second trip to Sea Spray Cottages and it didn't disappoint. The cottage was decorated beautifully, had two nice outdoor seating areas, an outdoor shower and a kitchen that had ample cooking supplies. The location is perfect as there are wonderful restaurants around and the walk to the beach is very short. We will definitely be back again next year!

nice cottage

  • 4 of 5

Great place for pet owners. The place was very clean. though the bathroom was clean it is very small. No hooks to hang clothes. The shower had good pressure but it had plastic shower curtains on both sides of tub so as to protect wooden wall and window. Kind of like taking a shower in a plastic bag. Should have proper enclosure installed. But it did have an outside shower and it was fine. the front yard needs a little curb appeal attention. Neighbors yard very green,ours not so much. All and all for the money it was great. Definitely would recommend it and would stay there again.

Terrific Beach Cottage - dog friendly!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

As we were driving to the OBX I was getting "cold feet" about staying in an older, smaller beach cottage since I knew my brother and several other couples were staying in one of the newer giant homes. I don't really want to have to stay with a bunch of other couples/families in order to afford a big house - that's why I booked this place (along with it being pet friendly). The minute we walked in the door of this cottage all my "cold feet" feelings vanished. The place was so cute, smelled super clean, and was spotless. It means a lot to me that places are clean and this cottage was cleaner than any place I've stayed.

The place is exactly as shown in the pictures. 3 bedrooms. 1 bathroom and a reasonable sized kitchen that was very well equipped with anything you'd need to cook with. Small fenced yard for my dog. Laundry on site. Central air conditioning cooled the place well. Ceiling fan in my bedroom.

Location is great. We sat on the front porch relaxing alot. Bike path along the main road. Ocean across the street. What more could you ask for?

Throughout the year I emailed the owner several times and he always immediately got back to me. When I got to the property I emailed inquiring about the gas grills and he again immediately got back to me.

My favorite thing was the new outdoor showers. I loved taking a nice hot shower outside.

I highly recommend this place for the OBX.
