Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed over Thanksgiving weekend and it was amazing! The house is so clean, inviting and comfortable. We felt right at home and we loved how close the house is to everything. The beach and Jennette's Pier were right across the street. Tanger outlets were a hop, skip and a jump in the car. We are definitely going to be staying here again!!!!

Wonderful as always!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this house from the owners numerous times over the past several years. Our recent stay was enjoyable as always. There were many changes to the house from our last visit making it even more comfortable and welcoming. It is definitely the perfect location - a short walk to the beach and close to shopping and restaurants. The house and the owners are top notch.

LOVE LOVE this house!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here a few times and enjoyed the location and lay out of the house. The house is very clean and has everything we need to feel comfortable like we are at home! Short walk on to the beach with the kids and late afternoon they are in the pool. The sunsets off the back deck are amazing!

Mike is great to work with and always answer our questions quickly. We highly recommend OBX Life 2!!!

Best Vacation Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is located at the best location with lots of things in walking distance. We enjoyed eating at Sam & Omies. This is really a must while you are in Nags Head. Even though we had some raining days we found plenty of things to do. We enjoyed going to Corolla, Duck and Rodanthe. The house was very well cleaned and the dog run was great to have for our dog and not have to worry about him getting out. It was great having the pool after a day at the beach. This trip was for our 30th anniversary and I have to say it was one of the best vacations we have ever had. Thanks so much for sharing your rental with us. We loved it!!

Wonder family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd year renting this home. We love having the pool in the backyard, playground next door and the beach and pier right across the street. We never have to get in the car with everything right around the house. Hope to be back again next year.

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 Nags Head

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!!!!
