Why Laurie Carter Bleh chose Nags Head

Our family has vacationed in the Outer Banks for many years. It was a dream come true to find and purchase Island Girl. Now we can offer our cottage to others and they can enjoy the benefits of a relaxing vacation in the heart of Nags Head.

What makes this house unique

While staying at Island Girl we enjoy walking to the beach, fishing at Nags Head pier, laying by the pool, relaxing in the hot tub, drying off in the sauna, cooking out on the grill, and entertaining our friends and family. There is a game room on the first floor with a new footsball table and the cottage has all flat screen TV's. Kids of all ages enjoy hanging out here. There is also a sanded volleyball court; surrounded by a privacy fence; not too far from the Tiki Bar!

First time at OBX

  • 5 of 5

House was great. 10-15 minute walk to the beach, close to stores and food, and loaded with a pool/tiki bar. The owners were great and stayed in touch throughout the trip. Everything was very clean and organized and the upgrades to the house really made it a pleasurable stay. Can't recommend highly enough.

Only downside was that it was a little close to a major roadway which means a little background noise at night/early morning...but not that bad.

This was our 2nd visit in 4 years. Super clean, many amenities, close to restaurants, shops and ocean. The pool and hot tub were wonderful, as well. Felt like home. Got to meet the wonderful owners this trip- so accommodating. Perfect family vacation spot.

This is probably the nicest house we've stayed at in outer banks. It was the most well equipped house too, there was literally nothing that we wanted that the house didn't have. The kitchen is stocked, plenty of pool toys and the grill is really nice. As another reviewer mentioned, this house is next to the main highway, but the noise didn't bother us at all. We rented bicycles with trailers on them and zipped back and forth from the beach, Jockey's ridge, restaurants and the sound very quickly. Also, the 4th of July fireworks at the Nags Head Pier were amazing!

The house was great, but a little loud due to the highway

  • 3 of 5

Overall, I thought the house was wonderful. It was well furnished, clean, and had lots of fun things to do with the pool, hot tub, sauna, and foosball table. The walk to the beach was an easy 5 to 10 minutes and the beach itself was beautiful and not too crowded. The owners of the house also seemed very nice and accommodating. The main drawback of this house is that it is right at the corner of Highway 158, which (as we know now) is the main North-South highway on this part of the Outer Banks. The traffic along here was pretty constant all day long (even during early morning hours) and made it a little hard for kids and grownups to sleep. This wasn't a major problem for us, but if you are a light sleeper I think it could be.

Exceeded Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Great vacation rental home! Two families with kids aged 9-16 stayed at this home for a week in late April and there was something for everyone. Our kids loved the pool, hot tub, sauna and foosball table. The adults enjoyed the outdoor pool bar and volleyball with the kids! It was our first trip to the Outer Banks and we weren't sure where to stay. We lucked out because the location was perfect as it was close to the beach (walkable),Jockeys Ridge State Park and many restaurants. The owners are great to work with and extremely responsive. They have seriously thought of everything. We would absolutely stay here again if we return to the area. Definitely exceeded our expectations!
