About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This charming Nags Head ocean side vacation rental cottage is located at MP 13.7 in Nags Head with easy beach access. Parking for 3 cars.

Walk 100 feet out your backdoor and be on the beach in the heart of Nags Head! We are ON the OCEANSIDE! That means no crossing the beach road so you can come and go from the beach (in a minute!) all day long with incredible ease. Watch the sunrise on the beach in front of the cottage! See the ocean from the large roof top deck and feel the ocean breeze throughout the house. Our 4 bedroom beach cottage has 2 family rooms, both with TV's, which make for peaceful living if the kids and adults have different ideas of fun. In addition, Wireless Internet (WiFi) throughout the house and on the ocean-view deck make staying in touch easy.

There are two queen sized bedrooms, a third bedroom with a double bed and a fourth with one set of bunk beds . There's a screen porch-great for picking crabs in the evening, an open kitchen, outdoor shower and huge deck for kicking back with the family or friends. All conveniently located at the 13.5 mile post in Nags Head with groceries and restaurants just 3 minutes away!

Stay once and feel why our guests say they feel so comfortable here! One of our guests called it 'a little piece of heaven' and we feel the same way. Come and enjoy!

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Breakaway in March 2017 and had a wonderful stay! We saw whales heading north just in front of the cottage, dolphin in the waves and enjoyed beautiful long walks on the beach each day, passing by the famous "historic cottage row" which Nags Head is known for. The cottages are just a short walk up the beach from the Breakaway!

The cottage is cute and was more spacious than we expected. We liked having two family rooms and all the porches and decks to spread out on. Best of all was the location - just steps to the most beautiful beach and ocean! Everything we needed was nearby - two nice supermarkets at 2 minutes away and plenty of good restaurants.

They have two bikes and a bike path runs right by the cottage which was fun for exploring. The kids loved playing in the sand and there were plenty of toys. The cottage is really well equipped, they've thought of everything!

Thanks for sharing your adorable home. We will definitely be going back soon!

Our Own Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We chose this property based on other renter reviews and we were not disappointed! This lovely little cottage has a cozy feel, but features a surprising amount of space for everyone to spread out and relax on their own. We visited with 3 teenage boys who each found their own favorite spot to hang out. Having two family rooms was great, since it gave us the option of being together as one group or splitting into two. The cottage has an excellent location, only a few minutes to grocery stores, restaurants, Jockey's Ridge and, of course, the beach. Having direct access to the beach was wonderful. It was easy to go back to the house to get things and we weren't stuck lugging everything with us. The house was very clean and the pictures we saw in advance are accurate to what we found when we arrived. We loved the decor, especially the lovely artwork. We found ourselves searching for similar pieces to bring home. The fully stocked kitchen made it very easy to do most of our cooking at home. In fact, we all made ourselves completely at home from the moment we arrived! This cottage will definitely be our first choice for future visits. Everything about this trip, from the reservations and communication to the arrival and setup to the cleanup and packing was easy and stress-free. I highly recommend this beautiful cottage and hope we will have the opportunity to visit again.

Owner's Response: Kathie and family, I am so glad you all enjoyed our little piece of heaven, too. We never ask our guests to review "Breakaway", but if everyone wrote such a nice glowing review as you have, I would ask. Thank you so much for taking the time and PLEASE visit again soon!

A great vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at this adorable beach house this past May. We've been going to Nags Head for years and have rented many places, and this house really felt like home. The little details in the decor projected a very warm, relaxing and fun atmosphere. I could tell the owner really thought about how to make their guests' stay relaxing and comfortable.

We were just a few steps away from the beach -- it was 'beach front feel' without the beach front price.

There's a huge deck with a nice view of the ocean, where our family spent quite a bit of time, eating, chatting and just enjoying our week.

I also loved that we were so close to a grocery store and Austin's seafood market -- it's less than a 5 minute drive. So convenient!!

We are looking forward to next year, and many years to come at this fabulous beach cottage.

Great place for a super price! We will never stay anywhere else!

  • 5 of 5

Several summers ago, after struggling year after year to find just the right Nags Head beach house, we were lucky enough to find the perfect place! Those days of searching are over--we will never stay anywhere else. What we love most about the house--(and there are so many things!) is the fact that we do not have to cross any roads to get to the beach. This means the kids can come and go all day with no worries, we can leave our stuff on the beach all day and come in for lunch, a nap or whatever! My favorite part is the fact that I can slip out of bed at sunrise, grab my camera and in 30 seconds be sitting on the beach catching the most beautiful sunrises. It always seem to rise just in front of the house! Back to bed and when the family gets up--no one knows I've had my special time alone with the beach to myself at the start of the day.

Another really great thing that has made our visits more fun and more peaceful is that the house has two family rooms, each with TV and sofas. The two family rooms are both comfy and so cute and the kitchen runs between them so you still feel in touch with everyone even if you don't share the same taste in TV shows. The house is so well-equipped--we never need to lug a bunch of stuff with us--they have games, bikes, beach chairs, and a really well stocked kitchen plus outdoor grill. My husband loves fishing and it's great to have a fish cleaning table on the back deck because the fishing is great there!

There's a little rustic screened porch for picking crabs or my family loves to do it on the HUGE roof deck which is just a great place to hang out--you can see the ocean and there is alot of room/seating up there!

The owners, Carolyn and Bob, are always so helpful when it comes to offering advice on anything. They know the outerbanks very well and are great people! Carolyn has such an eye for decorating and we can't wait to see her updates every year! Everything is close--grocery, Jockey's Ridge, outlet shopping, putt putt, great restaurants, the sound, anything yiu need at all! Even so, the house has such a private feel about it. We really love it and have been so happy since we started staying there!
