Come and enjoy a relaxing South Nags Head vacation. 'Good Day Sunshine!' is beautifully furnished and decorated where you can relax in peace and quiet. Whether you're watching the waves of the Atlantic Ocean, the dolphins or pelicans playing, or the beautiful sunrises, you will be inspired by the views.

The beach is literally next door. It begins only about 75 feet from the end of your driveway. You will enjoy direct access to one of the best stretches of beach in Nags Head that is far less crowded and quiet. You even have the added security of a Nags Head Lifeguard Station positioned directly at the end of our street. That offers great piece of mind, especially with little ones. (Google Maps may still show Surfside Drive between our cottage and the beach but it was washed away a few years ago.) Escape the crowds and the noise you will find near the 'Big Road'. Walk the beach early in the morning to find beautiful sea shells or sea glass (our favorite). The wide sand beaches of South Nags Head are some of the cleanest beaches on the Outer Banks. Come sit, read a book, sunbathe, or enjoy a meal on our spacious and comfortable sun deck.

The Family room has a flat screen TV with DVD player, board games and stereo.

The Kitchen has plenty of updated cabinets with granite counter tops and has all the modern conveniences of home with a sealed top range, Microwave, dishwasher and a refrigerator. There are plenty of cooking utensils and silverware.

A storage area is located under the house for storage of your beach items. A foot wash is located adjacent to the stairs. A gas grill is located on the deck just outside the sliding glass doors. An enclosed outside shower with hot and cold water is located on the ground level.

Just at the end of our street is a jogging/bicycle/walking trail that extends for 6 miles along Old Oregon Inlet Road. This concrete multi-use path is excellent for taking an afternoon stroll or biking or rollerblading with the family. There's no busy road to cross to get to the path, so bring your bikes or rent them from on of the local rental companies and have them delivered to the cottage. Outlet shopping located only miles from house. Located in a quiet area with little traffic and uncrowded beaches. Don't forget to be at the docks of Oregon Inlet (10 Minutes away) at 4:00 to watch the charter fleet come in with their fresh catch of the day.

Make your plans to stay in this wonderful semi-oceanfront retreat. 'Good Day Sunshine!' is the perfect venue for rest and relaxation. The area is quiet, but located only a couple of minutes from shopping, first-class restaurants, fishing and entertainment. This is a great location for your next summer vacation!

Please bring bed and bath linens and toiletries. We supply bed top covers and pillows. Linens and a variety of beach equipment can also be rented via local providers, please ask for references, if interested.

Please make sure to check our up-to-date availability calendar for the dates you are interested in.

About Aaron

Over the years my wife and I vacationed in South Nags Head and had fallen in love with it through our many visits. Like many, we dreamed of one day owning a beach home. In 2009, our dream finally came true. While it was in rather rough shape when we found it, we knew we could turn it into a place that our family would enjoy. For the first few years of ownership, we rented out our home through a local property management company, but since 2012 we have enjoyed offering it directly to our guests through VRBO.

NOTE: Google Maps may still show Surfside Drive between our cottage and the beach but it was washed away a few years ago.

Aaron purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Aaron chose Nags Head

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!!

The proximity to the beach makes this a very special property. You will LOVE vacationing only steps away from the beach. Also, we live only two hours from the cottage, making it very convenient for us to visit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first vacation in South Nags Head. We have been vacationing on Hatteras Island one or two times each year since 1993. We decided to try here due to access restrictions to Hatteras Island(as a result of Hurricane Irene), and we are glad to have done so. It is beautiful here, and I agree with an earlier writer, in all the years of coming to the NC shore, this house tops all others. Thanks!

Another Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth year staying at Good Day Sunshine and once again we had the perfect Outer Banks vacation. The property is wonderful and includes everything needed to make your stay great. Location is so very convenient with easy, close access to the beach. The deck and hot tub are additional super features. The cottage is very family friendly, the kids like the game room and the little ones absolutely love the sandy play area beneath. The owner has been so great to work with over the past several years and it is so appreciated. All members of our family feel like this vacation rental is truly a home away from home.

Excellent home in excellent location for 4-6 people

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with 2 adults and 4 teenagers. We liked that the home was very much a cottage...and that is a complement. We felt like we had a nice comfy place to enjoy the ocean. Steps from the sand and great ocean views from the deck and windows. Excellent kitchen set up. Very comfortable family room furniture and dining table. Entire house is updated. Renters will not be disappointed.

For Relaxing on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

For most intents and purposes, this is right on the beach. If you're looking for something that is more isolated from other houses, you'll have to pay a LOT more or look elsewhere entirely. This place is perfect for beach front relaxing. We saw dolphins from the house deck, as well as many pelicans, and walking on the beach found much more sea life. This is a quiet area, although we came before Memorial Day, so I cannot speak to what it is like in this area during high season. The house is a little smallish, so although it can sleep up to 8 people, I wouldn't recommend staying for a week with 8 people in the house. Fine for 5 or 6. Comfortable, clean, and convenient. The nearest grocery store is about 8 miles away, a 15 minute drive. Beyond the beach, there is much to do in the area, including attractions in Manteo (Roanoke Island), nice villages and attractions south near Hatteras, and much more.

Great location, great stay.

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Good Day Sunshine in mid May. The location was perfect for our group of six first time visitors to the Outer Banks. We managed to tour the entire Outer Banks from Currituck to Ocracoke returning to the house each night. We loved the view of the ocean from the living room, dining room and two of the bedrooms. The kitchen had everything needed to cook and serve meals. Since the driveway is not straight it was a bit tricky to maneuver. Fortunately we had an expert driver in control of the wheel. Would love to stay here again when the weather is a bit warmer.
