About Carol Gunn Hennessey
With a career in sales as well as being a mom of 4 kids who grew up vacationing and working summers on the OBX, we enjoy nothing more than time at the beach cottage, whether it's for a weekend or a week. 'T-shirts and flip flops' are the attire for a guaranteed fun and relaxing stay in Nags Head. I love sharing the cottage with folks new to the Outer Banks, so others can experience the same enjoyments of the area as we do.
Carol Gunn Hennessey purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why Carol Gunn Hennessey chose Nags Head
Having grown up vacationing on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, I wanted to enjoy the small town beach atmosphere as a permanent part of my life. As you come over the bridge you can't help but take a deep breath and leave all stresses behind. A walk on the beach alongside the waves, or along the beach road is a get-away all your own. But there is plenty to do to make memories with family and friends when you get back to the cottage!
What makes this Cottage unique
While staying at our simple beach cottage, enjoy the simplicity of walking to the grocery store and nearby shops, swinging in the hammock swing, enjoying dinner on the deck, and relishing the very private outdoor shower. If you want to venture out, you don't need to go far to enjoy various water sports, fishing, the Wright Museum, miniature golfing, and the quaint town of Manteo with NC's Aquarium and antique shopping. For a day trip, enjoy a drive down Rte 12 to Hatteras and its historic lighthouse. The drive and views are breathtaking!

Carol was fantastic and easy to work with. The cottage in Nags Head has a great location, close to beach, shopping and quiet street.
Thanks for the kind words Hennessy family! It was great to have you in the cottage!

Very nice location, 2 blocks from the beach. Carol was great to work with and cottage was great!
This was our first visit to the OBX, we really enjoyed all of the nice beaches it had to offer. Our cottage had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable!
Great location for beach or store access. Clean, perfect size and very relaxing beach cottage.
I really enjoyed our stay at your beach cottage. Everything was so convenient. The house was so nice and had everything you would need to have an amazing relaxing time at the beach! I didn’t want to leave!
Love hearing you had a great week and enjoyed the cottage as much as we do. 'Amazing' and 'relaxing' is what it's all about! Family time at the beach is all about memories, and I'm always happy when my guests take some home with them!
Perfect location, easy stroll to the beach and shopping.
Owner was wonderful to work with. Great location with easy strolls to the beach, shopping and coffee houses!
Great first time at the outer banks!!
First time at the outer banks and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. Thank you Carol for opening up your home, it was perfect. We hope to do it again next year.
Victoria, thanks for taking the time to write such a nice note. Nothing makes me happier than first timers to the OBX who enjoy being in my home! I'm so glad you thought it was perfect! Carol
The cottage is just a block from the walking/running path that parallels the beach, a great opportunity for those who want a leisurely stroll or run. This paved path stretches from the south end of Nags Head to the north end of Kill Devil Hills. A focus of this area are the beautiful beaches and relaxed family life without the neon and noise of large resort areas.
