About the property

5 Bedroom, 4 Full/2 Half Baths with Panoramic Views; Enjoy Sunrise and Sunset

Welcome to Nags Head Haven (NHH). Upgraded for the 2018 season, you've just found the perfect home for your beach vacation. ONLINE Booking is turned ON, but for the best rates and to save time with the variable costs, please use the "Ask Owner A Question" section to provide info BEFORE booking. THANKS!

NHH enjoys a majestic semi ocean-front location providing easy access to the beach coupled with the privacy and space that only a double lot can afford. Complete ocean and sunrise views to the east and quiet park and sound views facing west. Even locals marvel at the views presented from the upper living area. From morning coffee on the front deck to evening/sunset hot tubbing on the rear deck, this house has it all. The complete kitchen remodel for 2017 will please the most discerning of cooks.

This vacation paradise features a large outdoor swimming pool*, 6-person hot tub, large HDTV in living area and six additional flat-screen TV's throughout the house, game room with foosball table and vintage arcade game (Ms. Pac-man Cocktail Arcade Table), outdoor basketball area, high-speed wireless internet access, free long-distance telephone calls, 10-car parking area. Easy access is provided via a keyless entry system, so there is no need to stand in line at a rental agency on arrival and departure. Sunday turnover dates (during the season) have been selected to help alleviate the dreaded traffic snarl encountered during the peak saturday times. You can vacation with ease knowing that local maintenance and service personnel are available for any unusual circumstances or emergency situations, and I personally work hard to ensure the highest level of customer satisfaction.

NHH provides over 3000 square feet of living space with THREE King bedrooms, each with en-suite full bathrooms. The fourth bedroom has a Queen bed and Twin Bed. The fifth bedroom/kid's room is furnished with two pyramid bunk beds (two full beds below and two twin beds above.) Unlike many beach houses that squeeze a king bed into a small room, each of NHH's master bedrooms is large enough for a king size bed, work desk, and pack 'n play. Two even have their own wet bars.

What truly sets NHH apart from the rest is it's location. Homes on Mile Post 18 back up to the Cape Hatteras National Park, so privacy abounds. Enjoy the peace and quiet of the National Park behind, with incredibly easy beach access only 150 yards (450 feet) straight ahead. The shops at Nags Head, including Food Lion and The Fresh Market, are a short 6 minutes (3 1/2 miles) away, yet your vacation fun isn't interrupted with a busy highway and urban noise. Best of all, the beaches of South Nags Head are some of the nicest in the area. Our beach nourishment program ensures a great beach experience, and our beach remains uncrowded and family friendly.

NHH's layout works for families of all sizes, sleeping up to 15. The first level features a recreation room with TV, cocktail arcade game (Ms. Pac-man/Galaga) and foosball table, full refrigerator, microwave, wet bar, half bathroom, and a king master suite with full bathroom. The game room and bedroom have access to the massive lower deck surrounding the house. Enjoy a swing in the hammock, or a splash in the over-sized swimming pool. There is a built-in BBQ as well.

On the second level you will find four more bedrooms. Two master bedrooms with king beds and full bathrooms. One room with a queen and twin bed, and a kid's room with 2 pyramid bunk beds (two full on lower and two twin on top). There is a covered deck facing the ocean, with access from both master bedrooms. Another great amenity is a deck area overlooking the swimming pool. This spot allows guests to view and enjoy the pool area without having to go downstairs. Perfect grandchild viewing!

When you make it to the third level, you will know why I fell in love with this house. The third level features 360 degree views of the ocean/national park/sunrise/sunset. Add in a few skylights, and you've found the closest thing to being outdoors. The brand new kitchen is complete with quartz counter tops, wood-like porcelain tile, a massive refrigerator and ice maker, chef's gas stove top, electric convection oven, microwave, drip coffee maker, k-cup coffee maker, toaster oven, and blender, with a breakfast bar seating 4 next to an adjoining dining area which seats 10-12. The kitchen, dining area, and living room all feature tall ceilings throughout. You can enjoy the big screen HDTV while sitting in front of a warm gas fireplace on a cool evening*. The living room opens to a wrap-around deck featuring ocean views and park/sound views. The 6-person hot tub, cleverly situated on the upper-rear deck, allows for sunset soaking. In addition to the main sitting area, there is a second area complete with a wet-bar and mini fridge to host pre-dinner cocktails, keeping family out of the kitchen.

Experience the vacation of a lifetime creating timeless memories; whiling away the hours at the beach or in your private pool or hot tub, enjoying a cool drink on the deck marveling at the ocean views, or visiting the surrounding area where within a short walk or drive you will find fine dining and the favorite restaurants of the locals. There are outlets stores, boutiques, golf courses, miniature golf, hang gliding, the Wright Brothers Memorial and the Lost Colony in Manteo. Come and will want to return again and again.

*Pool and Gas Fireplace open seasonally

Nags Head Haven's easy access to the beach is the main reason for a visit, however everyday doesn't always offer perfect beach weather. Our location also affords better chances of a great pool day, for those dates when the ocean isn't cooperating. The proximity of the Nags Head Fishing Pier, deep sea fishing, hang-gliding, golfing, shopping, fine and casual dining, and bars/pubs, set you up for the vacation of a lifetime. Come see everything that South Nags Head and NHH has to offer.

Already Made Our Plans For Next Year!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our wonderful vacation at Nags Head Haven. I can’t say enough good things about this house, its location, and the owner - Seth. It was, by far, one of the most relaxing family vacations I have ever been on. Due to a broken leg and a newborn baby in our group, we didn’t spend as much time at the beach as we had anticipated, but it was a totally doable walk with my walking boot and the heavy-duty beach wagon provided by Seth (thank you!). The beach was on the smaller side, but far from crowded because of its South Nags Head location.

Our favorite spot everyday was the large pool area. I guess because the house was built on a double lot, this pool felt so spacious compared to others at the Outer Banks. It was well maintained and the pool guy next door checked in on it mid-week to make sure it was still looking its best.

The hot tub on the third floor was such a nice treat. Usually, they’re located mid-level, but you get panoramic sea, sound and sky views with this one. Simply spectacular! Speaking of views, all the deck seating is so nice, especially the new Double Glider! I could have sat and watched the ocean for hours...

Inside, you can’t beat the third floor Great Room/Kitchen living area. Views on all sides. The wet bar made a great baby bottle station(!). Oh, and a HUGE plus for us was the leather furniture (we’re kinda germaphobes...), not to mention it was stylish and clean-looking. The modern kitchen was so well-equipped that even our resident chef was impressed - the homemade breakfasts, pizzas, and pastas that were made in that kitchen were delicious!

Finally, I have to thank Seth for being so gracious with his time and talent. From the very beginning, he went out of his way to make sure all my questions were answered. He directed me to his well put-together website, which I frequently referenced before, during, and after our visit (his recommendation of Blue Moon Beach Grill is on point - no other restaurant we tried even came close! And, we’re definitely going to be regular fixtures at Fish Heads Bar and Grill next year...). And, when we found some items missing or broken, he went out of his way to make sure they were taken care of!

We’re already looking forward to next year!

Making the most of a rainy week

  • 5 of 5

Our family of two grandparents, two adult children and four grandchildren spent a rainy week on the Outer Banks in the comfort of NHH and made memories that we won't forget. The miserable weather made us appreciate the amenities offered at NHH that include the expansive space of the top floor, game room activities on the lowest level, the pool, the well equipped and designed kitchen and the general relaxing atmosphere afforded at the Haven. Working with Seth is always a pleasure and we hope to repeat our experiences in the coming years (without the rain!).

Ticked the boxes

  • 5 of 5

We had criteria fo our celebratory visit to the Outer Banks. We needed enough bedrooms and bathrooms, a private pool, breathtaking sunsets, a short walk to the beach, a fully stocked kitchen and plenty of come together family space AND a hot tub. NHH ticked all the boxes. We especially loved the swallows that visited every night at sundown, the kitchen that had all we needed to make amazing meals, the private pool we could use when the No Swimming signs alerted us to unsafe conditions, yet and still able to enjoy our walks on the beach,..very, very little to wish for but...if we are seeking perfection we’d wish for better mattresses in the kids bunk room-truly poor, more warning on the awful biting bugs by the pool and that is it...truly...everything else was superb and truly ticked all our boxes.

Exceeded Expecations!

  • 5 of 5

When you see pictures of a place, but have never been there it's difficult to tell whether or not the house will fit your needs. Our 5 couple vacation group had every need met at Nags Head Haven. The house is very spacious. The upper level has plenty of room for the group to cook, eat, and socialize without anyone being left out. The kitchen is very nicely updated and makes cooking for a large group very easy. Having the sleeping all on the lower levels is nice and allows anyone who wants to hit the sack early to not be disturbed. The decks allow for great views and have ample seating. The only complaint there is the large table is on the lower level deck which does not connect to the upper level making it difficult to use. The beach is just a 3 minute walk away. Having a pool is great for those days where you don't want to lug everything to the beach. The house is in a convenient location, not too far from groceries, shopping, and the main road in and out.

Our New Favorite Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

After a few trips to places like Myrtle Beach and Panama City, we try to avoid heavily populated and over-commercialized vacations spots. With that said, I can't say enough about this house and the location. We vacation along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts and this is probably our new favorite place! The house is perfect, the pictures don't do it justice. It has every amenity you might want. The walk to the beach is really short, but wear shoes. The sand in front of the beach access is insanely hot. It's a short beach and not crowded at all. We had some good boogie boarding and it seemed like a great place to fish. Definitely try the Blue Water Fish Grill restaurant. The owner was SUPER responsive and helpful with a few minor things, and we're excited to come back soon!

Car: recommended

South Nags Head is the place to be! Nags Head Haven is located at MP18, with unbelievable panoramic views. Families love South Nags Head because of it's convenient access to shopping and restaurants, while providing a quiet and safe atmosphere for kids of all ages. The real draw to a South Nags Head vacation is the ability to escape the crowds, while simultaneously being near the action. Truly the perfect vacation location, Nags Head Haven bridges the gap between family members who want to be in the middle of the action and those looking for privacy.
