About Mike Olson

Mike and Renee Olson. They met in OBX during our college summer breaks 1987 - 1993. Mike was a Ocean Rescue Lifeguard for Kill Devil Hills and Nags Head Ocean Rescue. Renee worked at Capt'n Franks and Birthday Suits. They have two children Meganne and Max. They enjoy the Outer Banks and know it very well. They thought this house would be perfect because it's not too big and is the perfect size for one or two families. The price is very reasonable for all you get.

Mike Olson purchased this house in 2010

Why Mike Olson chose Outer Banks

When we decided to purchase our second rental home the perfect location was a priority to us. Having everything you need close by and not have to fight traffic is important so you can settle in fast and start enjoying your vacation. Restaurants, beach, shopping, fishing, is all in walking distant from the house. Also, having the longest and first cement pier with a aquarium across the street is EXCITING!

What makes this house unique

The sunsets over looking the sound are incredible you must have your camera ready! Walking out 1000' on Jennette's pier!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I didn't get the chance to write in the guest book but wanted to thank you so much for opening your home to us! We had a wonderful time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The location was amazing - the pier was a huge hit with our little one. The surf kayaking was fun to watch too! It was the first time we had ever been to Sam n Omie's and we ate there for breakfast almost every day. They were so understanding of the fact that we had a toddler! That house could not be in a better spot. So close to so much!!!!

Great Stay and location in the Outer Banks

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at the OBXLife ll for Spring Break week April 2017. The rental is approximately in the middle of the Outer Banks which our mission was to sightsee and take adventures. We drove one way to Corolla and then drove the other way to Cape Hatteras. We tried to get to Ocracoke Island but the Ferry was a 4 hour wait. (would recommend to try to get there very early 6 or 7am try to get ticket before you go if possible, Ferry schedule online). Both area are approx. an hour drive from the rental. If you go on the Ferry it is another hour. Went to Manteo 1 day as well (10 minutes from rental), a lot to do and see there too. The beach is across the street and a five minute walk with Jeanette's Pier right there. We, also, brought our bikes and biking all over Nags Head is very easy. Outlets are 10 min. Walk or 5 min. Bike ride, you can see them from the back of the rental. The rental was very comfortable and has everything you need for a great stay. The owner, Mike, was very helpful and easy to work with. I would definitely stay there again.

A great rental at the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We are repeat renters with nothing but good things to say about our experiences. The owner is excellent to deal with, the location of the house is perfect with the beach right across the street and shopping and restaurants close by, and the house itself has everything that you need for an enjoyable stay. The owner takes pride in his property and it shows.

Relaxing and Stress Free Stay

  • 5 of 5

With this being our first experience at renting a house for a short vacation (as opposed to the usual hotel experience), we were a little anxious. Needless to say, our anxiousness turned to relaxation in short order. Eveything turned out as advertised. The house was clean and well maintained. The information we received from the owner Mike, was easy to follow. We didn't encounter any issues with the house during our visit. The location was great, being maybe a minutes walk to the beach. Additionally, everything we needed during our stay was within a short walking or driving distance. The main purpose of our visit was to rest from the hustle and bustle of work during the New Years holiday week, so being here in the off-season was ideal. We would highly recommend this property to others and hope to make this trip an anuual retreat for our family!

Owner's Response: Not sure where this came from? We are wondering if this is the actual guest who stayed here that wrote this?? We take this type of comment very serious. It is rare that we ever get a complaint about the house not being cleaned. We tell all our guest if for any reason they are not 100% satisfied with cleanliness of house they are giving contact numbers to call and we will do everything possible to make sure it is clean to our guest satisfaction. I wish they would of let us know about there dissatisfaction before they leave us a poor review. They stayed for a week and we touch-based with them during that time and heard no complaints or problems.

Fantastic time!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful first time trip to OBX. The house was perfect and it was great having our own private pool! The beach was right across the street. This trip was extra special since we could bring along our dogs. We will definitely be coming back next year!

Awesome Vacation at OBX Life II

  • 5 of 5

The best of both worlds, across the street from the beach & it's own private pool! A central location to visit the lighthouses, Jeannette's pier & walking distance to Sam & Omie's! Loved the house, it was very clean & well kept up. My family enjoyed this house & this trip very much. The house was great & accommodated all 8 of us. Would certainly stay here again and I would recommend it to anyone. A great experience!
