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.

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.

Great house, great location, great vacation!
This is our 4th year staying at this house, and we will continue to come back again and again for more years of fun! The house is steps away from the beach, close enough that the 5 year old could walk to and fro alone (with parents at the beach and in the house, of course!). The house is always very clean and the owner is quick to respond to any issues (we've only had 1 small one in the 4 years we've been staying here).
The kids (and adults!) have fun rain or shine, as there is a lovely sandy play area (complete with a hammock) under the house that gets lots of use on rainy days! There is also a somewhat separate area upstairs that we use as a kids' play space, complete with a foos ball table. If the beach water is too cold, the sound is a short drive away, where the water is warm and the waves are gentle for little ones. The bedrooms are a good size and comfortable, but not overly done or fancy. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need for cooking.
We will continue to come back to this house again and again, it has become a favorite family vacation of ours!
There are not enough words to express how much we enjoyed our stay! The view was breathtaking, just steps from the beach. We loved enjoying our coffee on the deck, watching the dolphins play in the ocean and hearing the waves at night. We did some sight seeing, we visited 3 lighthouses, did a wild horse tour and visited the Wright Brothers National Memorial, not to mention the wonderful places to eat out. But mostly, we fully enjoyed just relaxing at the cottage and spending quality family time together. Everything was perfect. And a special thank you to Aaron for helping me get into the cottage after I managed to get locked out (operator error on using the key pad!)
We will definitely be back! OBX is our happy place!
Home away from home
We always love going back to this beautiful house. Love the comfy beds. And all the personal touches. Especially the extra warm blankets for the chilly nights. The view is amazing! And the hot tub is always looked forward to. There are too many great things to name.
Home Away From Home
This is our 8th year staying here and it is like a second home. It is always clean and we never have any issues. Thank you for having such a great place to vacation at the beach!!! It is cozy and a great view of the ocean. It is as nice as the online pics of the property. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a rental. We Will be coming back next year!!
Nice house n comfortable
Nicely decorated n great location
Amazing and Relaxing
This is the second time that we have stayed at Good Day Sunshine and it does not disappoint! Simply being so close to the ocean and hearing the waves day and night gives us what we call "ocean therapy". Thanks so much to Aaron and Kim!
