South Nags Head House Rental Photos and Description

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

Welcome to Nags Head Haven (NHH). Upgraded for the 2015 season, you've just found the perfect home for your beach vacation. 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.

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 kitchen is complete with a refrigerator and ice maker, gas stove top, electric oven, microwave, drip coffee maker, k-cup coffee maker, toaster oven, and blender, with a breakfast bar seating 3 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

Just what I was looking for!

  • 5 of 5

Nags Head Haven was the perfect venue for my long anticipated reunion with the lovely girls in my family. The common areas were a great fit for the long nights of girl talk, with the bonus of plenty of private places when a one needs their own space. Very clean, stocked with everything you might need providing the comforts of your own home. The location is divine. Close to shopping and restaurants, grocery stores and most of all, the beach! Seth, you have a wonderful home -and then (spoiler alert) there's the surprise gift bag. You get the award for host of the year. Thank you for allowing us to use your home.

We had a wonderful time at Nags Head Haven! We had 3 families with 6 adults and 5 kids. There was plenty of room for everyone to have their own space and also great common areas where everyone could comfortably congregate. The walk to the beach was easy and the pool was wonderful! I would highly recommend this home for your next vacation!

This home was better than anything we ever expected. The special touches were very much appreciated; luggage racks, mesh laundry baskets, night lights, charging cubes in every bedroom. The kitchen had plenty of dishes plus plastic ones for the kids. The pots and pans were of top quality and not mismatched pieces from a garage sale. Plus there was an entire drawer of spices! The high chair was used daily for our 11 month old grandson. The top floor was the gathering spot for our entire family, all 15 of us and there was plenty of room.

The pool was great because few in our group liked the beach although it was a short walk away. The outdoor shower was very useful since it had hot and cold water instead of just cold. There were plenty of chairs and chaises plus numerous rafts and pool toys. There even was an infant float which was a big surprise because we brought one too.

We went to Fish Heads to enjoy the shrimp and drinks during happy hour. Get there early because it fills up right away. Also don't miss the Blue Moon restaurant. The crab cake sandwich was all meat, no fillers. Again, get there early because the wait can be long. Our large group was easily accommodated at Basnight's Lone Cedar Cafe. Food was very good and the veggies and herbs were grown right outside the door! Another favorite was Ducks Donuts. Very unique and the donuts are yummy. Of course a visit to the Wright Brothers Museum is a must.

Best of all was the owner, Seth Goldman. He answered every question quickly and was a great resource person. He has put a lot of thought into making his home comfortable and inviting. The welcome gift was a special surprise. Also, the on site person, Joby, responded to our question promptly. Everyone had a wonderful visit and I would highly recommend this home.

Great Home and Location

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 adults and 7 grandchildren on the trip. The house was perfect. Everyone had space. Unlike a lot of rentals the whole top floor was living space - kitchen, dining, and great room. As result there was room everyone during meals and the evening. Furniture and beds are very comfortable and the bedrooms are all a good size. The pool was great and there is shade in the afternoon. The walk to the beach is reasonable, but it looks like the dunes got rebuilt this year, the climb is steep if you have a wagon or little ones.

Beautiful memories in a beautiful beach home!

  • 5 of 5

Hi, Seth! I just wanted to jot a quick note to let you know how much we have all enjoyed your beautiful beach home!!! We have rented in the OBX for almost 10 years & we are all in agreement that your home is the most incredible by far!!

It is obvious that you have put much thought & love into making this a perfect vacation home for families.

I appreciate all your little details that are such nice touches- such as the hooks near the spa tub & perfect placement of hooks in the outside shower, the tile floor just inside the outside doors & the sink/refrigerators throughout the house! Even the little cubes in the bedrooms for charging our electronics & the little blue night lights were appreciated. The kitchen is fully stocked with not only dishes/pans but also fantastic appliances. We did not see crab mallots so we bought 4 and will leave them for your future guests.

We were impressed with your collection of pool toys & all your beach supplies. I realize these are extras but please know how much easier it is for your guests! They are so appreciated!! We left you a few more pool toys. Our grown sons enjoyed playing basketball nearly every evening & as a mom whose sons live states away it was heart warming to see/ hear them be boys again (& brothers being brothers!) I will treasure so many of memories like these!

Our 2 small grandsons enjoyed the pool & watching our 3 year old become courageous & seeing his joy at his little accomplishments every day was joyous for us.

I need to know about this living room furniture! It is so comfortable & beautiful! If you do not mind sharing- tell me who the manufacturer is. The comfort & style are exceptional! Another reason I am not saying "beach house" but rather beach home 😀.

We have laughed so much in your game room ! The pac man game machine was a hit & brought back memories!

The sunsets were spectacular from the back deck. Our family enjoyed the hot tub with the beautiful sunset colors and peaceful quiet of the sound. I could go on & on!

Thank you for your hospitality (gift bag was super!!) and your impeccable home. Beautiful memories will be cherished forever by all of us.

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.
