Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 9

Super cute cottage tucked away on a quiet street with water views from kitchen, living area, and dining room. Located at Milepost 13.5, "the calm ocean" is bright & spacious with an open floor plan and a well-equipped kitchen with vaulted ceiling.

After a short drive to the beach for the day, enjoy the amenities Nags Head Cove has to offer: take a dip in the soundfront pool, access the boat launch, try your luck fishing or crabbing off the pier across the street, or walk to the soundfront beach for a picture-perfect sunset.

"the calm ocean" is centrally located to restaurants and shops, including the Wright Brothers Memorial, Jeanette's Pier, Bodie Island Lighthouse, First Flight Adventure Park & Manteo.

The owners & their children have been vacationing in Nags Head for more than a decade. Their children have fond memories of staying at their aunt & uncle's Oceanside cottage in South Nags Head.

After a few days of rough surf, they cried out, "We want to go to the calm ocean!", which sounded like "the commotion" to mom & dad. Once mom & dad understood what their children meant, they headed back to the sound side beach access behind Jockey's Ridge State Park a/k/a "the calm ocean".

Days at the beach have been smooth sailing ever since!

COMMUNITY POOL FEE IS $3 PER DAY PER GUEST, $15 PER WEEK PER GUEST, $75 PER WEEK FOR UP TO SIX GUESTS. BOAT RAMP ACCESS AVAILABLE AT NO CHARGE.

OPEN FROM MAY 27TH TO SEPTEMBER 10TH IN 2017. FOR MORE DETAILS, CALL ONHC ASSOCIATION AT ,PRICE /DATES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE.

Reviewer Comments:

The calm ocean was overall a nice experience. The house was larger than the pictures made it out to be. It had the appearance of cleanliness, but needed a good deep cleaning, as there was caked on dust on baseboards and obvious splashes of some sort of liquid on the wall by the table. Also, being from the north, we were alarmed by the few cockroaches we saw, but after some research, saw this is common for the area and not a sign of filth. We were also disappointed by the length of the grass, being over 1 foot high on the day we arrived and not being mowed at all during our stay. It is in a residential neighborhood, which made us feel limited in our outdoor time at night. Everything is close by though. Less than a 4 min drive to all parts of the town. We made good use of the kayaks. It is a quick paddle out to the sound and the water is very shallow.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a great stay at The Calm Ocean! The view was fantastic and we enjoyed using the four provided kayaks, which we just carried across the street to the boat dock. It was so convenient. We also loved the layout of the house and the many sliding glass doors which offered a lot of natural light. It was also conveniently located to a grocery store and several restaurants, shops, and ice cream places. We took a short drive to the dunes one day, the Wright Brothers memorial another day, and also enjoyed the First Flight Adventure Park ropes course. It also wasn't far from the cute town of Manteo which we explored and where we also attended the Outer Banks Distillery tour. Jennette's pier was also a short drive and had ample parking with a short walk to the beach. The kids also loved the fort under the house! The showers were a bit dated, but the water pressure was great.

Loved the house we rented. Very unique and quaint. Only problem we had was dirty dishes and the lock on sliding glass door was difficult to open. Loved using the kayaks in the sound!! Had a wonderful time!!

This home was perfect for our family of 4. Right off of the community boat ramp you had a little inlet of water to enjoy off the deck & was a very short drive to the beach. Everything was close by and the home had everything we needed. Cutely decorated, showers had great pressure, AC worked beautifully after some HOT days on the beach. Had no issues & would recommend this house to anyone.

We had an enjoyable stay and liked the location and the amenities at the house. The kayaks were a nice perk, as well as the bean bags and grill. The only suggested improvement would be to install wi-fi.

This is the cutest little sounbd front cottage. The set up inside made us feel at home and we enjoyed the deck every evening watching the sun set. We left our vacation rested and relaxed!
