Come and enjoy an authentic Old Nags Head style vacation. The home is decorated with vintage Outer Banks memorabilia where you can relax with peace and quiet. Whether you're watching the waves of the Atlantic Ocean or the Roanoke Sound you will be inspired by the views. There are few cottages on the Outer Banks like ours where you will find the views we offer and have a pond and the Cape Hatteras National Seashore Park as a back yard. The turtles in the pond love to be fed.

The beach access is only 100 feet away leading you to the best stretch of white-sand beach in Nags Head that is far less crowded and quiet. You only have to walk past six houses to reach the ocean. The Google map is out dated by showing Surfside Drive between the beach road and the beach but it was washed away a few years ago. A better photographic image can be found at Bing and click on the Bird's Eye view button. Neither web site is updated to the point it shows the decks and screen porch on the back of the house. Escape the hustle and bustle of the noise you will find north of here.

The top floor is designed for family gatherings with the large Family room flowing into the Dining room and an open Kitchen area. This area has cathedral ceilings with a paddle fan and large windows. A sliding glass door leads out onto a covered porch area facing the ocean providing a nice relaxing atmosphere to people watch or use the built in bench and table to have a meal outside or to play games and socialize. The covered porch leads to a large sun deck that runs along the south side of the house. The south deck has a garden hose for misting yourself on those hot days while you are acquiring that perfect tan. The south deck leads to a large sun deck along the west side of the house that is excellent for entertaining and watching the sun set over the Cape Hatteras National Park and the Roanoke Sound. There are plenty of electrical outlets spaced along the decks also. Relax in our wood deck chairs with umbrella stands and foot rests while watching the wildlife around the pond or in the park.

The Family room has a 40” flat screen TV with DVD player, board games and video library.

The Kitchen area has granite counter tops and has all the modern conveniences of home with a GE Profile Range and Microwave, dishwasher and a refrigerator. There are plenty of cooking utensils and eating wares. We have had a lot of compliments on how well the kitchen is stocked.

The Master Bedroom with a queen bed is located on the top floor and has a sliding glass door leading onto the south deck. There is plenty of storage in the cedar lined closet in the Master bedroom. It also has flat screen TV and a DVD player. The top floor also has a full bath.

The first floor is where you will enter the house from the stairs from the ground floor. The entrance is located on the covered porch facing Old Oregon Inlet Road. This porch has built-in bench seats and is large enough for entertaining and a great place for the kids to play if they want to be away from the grown ups.

There are three bedrooms and a full bath located on the first floor. One bedroom has hardwood floors with two twin beds; the other two bedrooms are alike with a Queen Bed in each. All bedrooms have large cedar-lined closets, flat screen TVs with BlueRay DVD players, paddle fans, alarm clock radios, mirrors, dressers and plenty of windows for natural lighting. The double-stack washer/dryer is conveniently located in a hallway closet under the stairs going to the top floor. At the end of the hallway is another exit door leading out to the back yard and enclosed outside shower.

The Southern Pirate is located on nearly 1/2 acre of landscaped grounds. A short one story house is located north of the lot, an un-developed lot is to the south and our beautiful pond borders the west side. The Cape Hatteras National Seashore Park and the Roanoke Sound is located on the other side of our pond.

The Ground floor has a double concrete drive leading under the house for multiple vehicles. There's also parking for one extra vehicle beside the concrete drive in front of the house. A secure utility room is located under the house for storage of your beach items. An extra refrigerator is located in the utility room. A garden hose is available to wash off your items.

A park-style charcoal grill is located at the base of the stairs. Local law prohibits any grilling on a deck or under the house. An enclosed outside shower with hot and cold water is located at the back of the house. A fish cleaning station for your day's catch from the beach or from your drive out on the beach at Oregon Inlet is located next to the outside shower.

Across the street is a jogging/bicycle/walking trail that extends for 6 miles.

The Beach Access is almost directly across the street from the cottage. Walk across Old Oregon Inlet Road to the small footbridge to the concrete bike path/sidewalk. Take a left and walk north a few feet to Oregon Road. Turn right and you will see the beach directly in front of you. The wide flat white sand beaches of South Nags Head are some of the cleanest beaches on the Outer Banks.

We provide bed linens, towels and one roll of toilet paper when you arrive. Please bring your own beach towels.

About Eric Chandler

I started vacationing in Nags Head in 1980 at 13 years old and my mother and I bought our first cottage in 1994 in Kill Devil Hills. Whalebone Junction and the Oregon Inlet area has always been my favorite area so I was fortunate enough to be able to buy this home in 2011. I named the cottage 'The Southern Pirate' and it is located halfway between my two favorite spots. I decided to call it 'The Southern Pirate' for numerous reasons. Southern because my 9th Great Grandfather, John Chandler, arrived at Jamestown on June 10, 1610 aboard the ship Hercules and my family has been proud Southerners ever since. Secondly, because the home is located in South Nags Head. Pirate came from the Outer Banks reputation of harboring pirates. The map is out dated, Surfside Drive was washed away years ago and there's only six houses between us and the beach.

Eric Chandler purchased this house in 2011

Why Eric Chandler chose South Nags Head

It's quiet and out of the way from the hustle and bustle. The beach seems flatter and the sand appears to be like white sugar. Look us up on Facebook under The Southern Pirate

What makes this house unique

The views of the Cape Hatteras National Park, Roanoke Sound, Atlantic Ocean and the wildlife around the pond and nearly 1/2 acre yard is always changing. The area is quiet and relaxing with the best white-sand beaches.

Relaxing week

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this home in Nags Head. Its a quiet location with convenient access to the beach. The house is well maintained and has all the amenities you need to enjoy your stay. The views from the deck were quiet enjoyable at all times during the day and we enjoyed many meals outside. We all felt like it was a second home for our stay. I would definitely return!

Perfect Family Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent one week at this property and had a perfect week! Everything was in great condition and great for our entire week! Eric was very easy to work with -- quick to respond to any questions we had prior to our arrival. His suggestion for beach chair and umbrella rentals worked out great as well. The kids had an amazing time with the turtles-- named most of them :) The beach was a quick walk across the street. This was the first time that our family had been to the Outer Banks and we will be back! The beach was gorgeous and it felt like the perfect place to bring a family! Thank you!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Deb for bringing your family to the Outer Banks for your family vacation. The feeding of the turtles is a great time, I look forward to it every time I'm there. The local rental companies really work hard to accommodate every cottage as quickly as they can and usually your order is there waiting for you when you arrive. It's a great service for those flying in and don't have the means to bring the large items like umbrellas and chairs. I wish I could have them for the guests but the salty environment really takes a toll on items. I hope you can bring everyone back soon. Thanks again.

We can't wait to book this house again this spring!

  • 5 of 5

We took our family here in 2014 and loved every minute of it. Feeding the turtles on the back was so much fun, our kids got a kick out of it! It was a hot skip and a jump to the beach. We were able to walk right across he street and enjoy our morning coffee on the beach it was bliss. We will be booking again soon!! Thanks so much.

Everything you need

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed here for a week in late June. The house had tons of space, was clean, and had everything we needed for a week at the beach. I would highly recommend this house to anyone staying in Nags Head.The outdoor shower was an awesome bonus.
