Please note: We rent only FULL WEEKS in the summer months, no weekends or shorter stays. ALL WEEKS begin on Sunday, NO EXCEPTIONS. You may check in later, if you rent the whole week that starts and ends on Sunday.
Nestled in a quiet owner-occupied neighborhood west of the by-pass, our cottage rests only a few blocks from the sound. Nags Head offers waves galore, surf fishing, nature walks, golf, lighthouse climbing, countless art galleries plus craft and souvenier shopping!
The cottage covers one floor, on pilings - the open and bright, vaulted great room includes a living area, dining area, and fully-equipped kitchen with microwave and dishwasher. An oversized eat-at bar provides extra room for eating or rainy-day beach activities if you have kids. WIFI and DVD player, and central air and ceiling fans make for an enjoyable vacation.
The master bedroom offers a queen bed and master bath with shower, and a second TV. Bedroom #2 contains two twin beds, and bedroom #3 hosts a bunkbed set and a twin bed - Total sleeping for seven people (5 adult maximum). A sofabed in the great room brings the sleeping count to nine - perfect if you have kids and they bring a friend! Our kids and their friends have enjoyed many a day here. With friends along, the kids were seldom bored and we kept our sanity! :-)
Greet the sunrise or relax with friends for a drink at the end of the day on our large covered porch. There's paved, covered space below for two cars and paved open space for three more. Please use the outdoor shower to get the sunscreen off at the end of a lazy beach day. No Smoking and No Pets -- we expect you to honor the quiet nature of the neighborhood, and have a requirement of two years full time employment. Sorry, but that means no students unless they are with their adult family. No 'party groups'.
There's PLENTY to discover at Nags Head! Come visit - you'll definitely come back!
Oh, yeah -- I left out the EXCELLENT North Carolina State Aquarium and the outdoor drama 'The Lost Colony' and the Wright Brothers memorial museum -- all a short drive away. Jockey's Ridge is the largest sand dune in the east -- you can hang glide off it! Cape Hatteras is home to the most famous of all lighthouses, with several other lighthouses scattered along the coast to tour as well. There's great pier, surf, or charter fishing and crabbing nearby and outlet malls for an entirely different 'fishing' expedition!

We've loved the Outer Banks for YEARS, I hope you enjoy it!
Brenda Carner or Stephanie Bowe purchased this house in 1985
We had visited the Outer Banks for years, and wanted our kids to be able to enjoy it. We've had many, many fun family times at the cottage.
Enjoying the porch -- whether just sitting and feeling the breeze, or playing cards or lively games with the kids and their friends.
We have never been to the OBX before and had an amazing time. There is so much to do there and Kill Devil Hills is right in the middle of it all. The house, although older in appearance and décor, was clean and comfortable. We had two adults and 5 kids for most of the week and then added two adults for the last weekend and still felt there was plenty of room. One thing I will mention in case you have very young children is that although the beach is within walking distance, you do have to cross a very busy highway to get there. There is a traffic light and crosswalk so it was not an issue for us. Also there is a parking lot right by the beach access if you prefer to drive. We never had a problem finding parking. We would definitely stay here again! Thank you Brenda for all the tips on what not to miss!
Nice place in great proximity to much of what the outer banks has to offer. Only complaint is that neighbors directly across can be loud and have company coming in and out at all hours of the night.
We had a very relaxing vacation. The property is in a great location with just a quick drive to the beach where they have there own parking lot!! Can't beat the parking :)
The house was clean, beds were comfortable enough (nothing is like your own bed) and it had all the comforts of home. The price was right and the owner was wonderful to deal with! Would definitely stay again.
We had a great time. The house was what we were looking for in a rental. We had an ant problem in the kitchen sink area but ant traps helped. Kids thought the house was great. Off the beaten path but close to the beach and friends. Would recommend this place to anyone with a group of people. Would rent this house again.
The property was well-located, convenient to the beach and the sound. There is a parking lot on the beach road specifically for property owners in this neighborhood---very cool. The house was clean and the furniture and beds were comfortable.
We had a great time at this location. It was perfect for our parents 50th wedding anniversary celebration. The location was very central to everywhere we wanted to visit. It was very clean. The owner was great with information about the rental and sites we might be interested in seeing.
Hang gliding from the top of Jockey's Ridge!
