About Britt Brumley

This cottage is a great place to create wonderful family memories and traditions. Whenever our family visits the cottage we have two traditions that are a must. The first is taking our morning stroll along the seaside to Nags Head Pier and back before breakfast. The second is to never depart without having our fresh seafood dinner send off. We have two of the best locally caught fresh seafood shops to choose from in the area, they are Austin's Seafood at MP 11.5 and Billy's Seafood just a short drive down Collington Road at MP 8.

We love sharing our time at our beach house with family and friends. This house allows us an opportunity to relax and connect with one another while building new memories year after year. We hope the same is possible for each of our guests.

Britt Brumley purchased this house in 1996

Why Britt Brumley chose Nags Head

You will find this beach house to be unlike most. We are not in the rental market just for the income. Our cottage is a great gathering place to enjoy all that the Outer Banks has to offer. We treat our guests like family and provide a peaceful place to kick back and relax while making wonderful lifetime memories.

What makes this house unique

Off Shore Expectations is centrally located to all the best that the Outer Banks has to offer. Great food, entertainment, family friendly beaches and a wide variety of activities. There is a wonderful park nearby and several great swimming and recreation locations in the area. You can't miss taking a walk up Jockey's Ridge to fly kites or watch the sunset over the sound.

Great time, wonderful house, wonderful owner!

  • 5 of 5

We all had a very wonderful time and enjoyed the house. It's such a close walk to the beach and a great place to come back to after a long day near the waves. The owner was very fantastic and easy to deal with, always got back to us quickly and was very willing to work with us and meet our needs. We would recommend this house for sure and will hopefully be able to come back next year!

Beautiful clean house with lots of amenities

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this property for our 10 year anniversary celebration. The accommodations were so comfortable, the property well taken care of, and the location PERFECT! We visited many of the local restaurants including Sugar Creek, Black Pelican, Kelly's, Tortugas...just to name a few. All very close by and easy to find with a GPS. The beach is a short walk from the house and sitting on the deck listening to the waves was so relaxing!

Lovely Luxury at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

This house is enormous and has a little something for everyone. A master suite on the main living area made things easier for my mother who has some mobility issues. The second floor had tons of bedroom and bathroom space. It was clean, had wifi and the well appointed kitchen made it possible for me to cook Thanksgiving dinner for seven people. It was close to the beach and close to shopping and grocery stores. Love it!

The place was huge, clean, well furnished and well decorated. Wasn't missing a thing. My favorite part was all the different decks to relax on. Can't wait to go back!

A wonderful family friendly place to stay. Everything was very well thought out from the Legos, beach toys and games to the fully stocked kitchen. The house itself was spotlessly clean and the beds were very comfortable. Beach access was close and covenient. I would recommend this rental to anyone!!

We are centrally located between the Atlantic Ocean and the Sound on a barrier island. There are many outdoor activities and events in the area such as Kiteboarding, fishing tournaments, parasailing, jet skis, surfing and marathons/triathlons. Enjoy nature and wildlife at Nags Head Woods, climb Jocky's Ridge, fly kites, enjoy the beach just a block away or stroll along the sea shore. You will find a great surfing spot one block away; a favorite among local surfers. There is a large YMCA within walking distance that has three pools, full guy and a skate park. There is a choice of coffee shops and three grocery stores a short walk away. The town of Manteo is about a 15 minute drive and has much to offer. In Manteo you will find the NC Aquarium, Elizabethan Gardens, the history of Sir Walter Raleigh and the Lost Colony. Other activities nearby include sailing, the Wright Brother's Memorial, wild horses, and four fully functioning Lighthouses. Our family's favorite restaurant Tortuga's Lie is just a short walk from the cottage.
