Sea Spray Cottages were built in 1950. There are 5 cottage in total, each cottage is similar to the others, but unique in its own way.

This is the 10th season that my wife and I have been operating the SEA SPRAY COTTAGES OBX for vacations rentals. We run a mom and pop operation, an experience from a day gone-bye but thoroughly enjoyed by our guests.

Sea Spray Cottage #3 is perfect for those looking for a quaint space to enjoy time at the beach. It has 2 bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other bedroom has 2 twins. It has a comfortable living room with wide-screen TV, galley kitchen, and sweet breakfast room. You will not believe how comfortable and charming it is until you spend some time there. If you are looking for a private get away or to vacation with just your immediate family or just you and just your significant other, this is the place for you.

The location can't be beat, the beach is just across the street and at about mile post 11.7 (just south of Nags Head Pier and north of Snow Bird's Soft Serve Ice Cream), all of Nags Head's offerings are close by.

The cottage has a front porch for lounging and enjoying your favorite beverage as you watch the world go by as folks stroll, run and bike along the multi-use path that is across the street. The cottage also has a private back porch, patio in the rose garden, and fenced in yard. Bed linens and towels NOT provided. Check in is at 3:30 and check out is at 10:00.

If your desired dates of travel are not available in this cottage, we have others. There are 5 cottage in total at Sea Spray Cottages OBX, all similar in vintage, but unique from one another. If you are a regular on the Outer Banks, they are the gray cottages with the pink doors on the beach road in Nags Head.

No sheets or towels are provided, but cleaner rents them, ask for her contact information

About John Vollino

My wife, Laura Lee Garrett, has been vacationing on the Outer Banks her entire life. She introduced me, John Vollino, to the area when we were dating and have been vacationing there ever since. In 1991 we purchased our first cottage. In 2007 we purchased the Sea Spray Cottage Court. They were built in 1950; there are four cottages in total (two available for vacation rentals).

John Vollino purchased this cottage in 2007

Why John Vollino chose Nags Head

Sea Spray Cottages were slated for demolition to clear the lots for construction of 2 large 5-bedroom cottages. We purchased the lots with the requirment that the cottages remain. With preservation in mind, our intent is that we and others can enjoy a simple, yet confortable stay at the beach in a historic property.

great spot, cozy little house!

  • 5 of 5

nice beachy house...far enough away from the beach road but close enough to the beach. Well appointed with all the necessities. We even met John due to some concerns about flooding in the back. Will stay here next go around!

Cozy and cute is right!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cottage a year ago and we loved it just as much as we did then. The cottage itself is cozy and very clean, great area, and only a 5 minute walk down the road to the beach! It's our favorite place to stay when we come to OBX

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

For selfish reasons I'm almost reluctant to post how awesome this place is. When word gets out, it will be impossible to rent. This cottage was quaint, cozy, charming, and clean. It had all the convieniences you need when away from home and perfect accomodations traveling with dogs. The only thing I can think of to enhance this cottage would be to put some hooks in the bathroom...that’s it. When all you can think to critique is a hook needed in bathroom you know you’ve found a gem. The owner was quick to respond with any questions we had. Bed and couches comfortable and environment quiet and safe. I want to stay longer. Hopefully we will be back.

Cottage 3 Was Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Wanted a add a few extra days to our week vacation that we were spending on Hatteras Island. Cottage 3 was the perfect 2 day stay. The cottage is clean and well maintained. Enjoyed sitting back and watching TV. Front porch is very quaint but too much of a chill in the air to fully enjoy. The fenced in backyard was perfect for my two pups. So many wonderful eateries around to choose from. Only thing I was missing was a vacuum cleaner. With two pups, I vacuum daily. I did use the broom though! Kitchen is fully functional with a full size fridge and an apartment size stove. All in great working order. We will stay here again if we plan to add two nights to our trip.
