About Nelene Gibbs

Nelene and John Gibbs: We have been vacationing on the Outer Banks since we were teenagers. Lifelong residents of Virginia Beach, VA, It has always been our lifelong dream to own our own home on the Outer Banks. That dream became a reality in December of 2014. We decided to share our home with our guests for a few weeks during the summer. Our home has been updated, renovated, and cleaned to have it pristine and sparkling and ready for our guests. Our guests enjoy our home as much as we do as you can see from our reviews from previous vacationers.

Owner is Licensed Real Estate Agent in Virginia.

Nelene Gibbs purchased this house in 2014

Why Nelene Gibbs chose Nags Head

Our home is located directly across the street from the beach in a quiet private neighborhood of South Nags Head. We say we are at the end of the rainbow. There are only a few houses between us and the Cape Hatteras National Seashore Park. It is a great place to take the family for a walk, bike ride, or just sit on the decks and enjoy the magnificent sunrise views from the front in the morning and magnificent sunset views from the back in the evening . These views and the location, along with the updates we have made to our home, make this home our 'dream come true'. During the many years of vacationing on the Outer Banks, and never wanting to leave, we can now say we own our dream home! We know you will enjoy it as much as we do!

What makes this house unique

You will enjoy the beautiful pristine beaches of South Nags while only minutes away from all of the restaurants, fishing and entertainment that Nags Head and the Outer Banks has to offer. We have spectacular views from every area in our home. We have updated our home with new furnishing, new paint, a new salt water pool, hot tub and fully stocked kitchen. We have a 6 mile jogging/bike/walking trail that extends for 6 miles. This is a concrete path great for an evening bike ride after dinner a walk or rollerblading. We are only a mile and 1/2 from the Bodie Island light house. We have a large outside shower with dressing area on the ground level. After staying in many different vacation homes over the years on the Outer Banks, we know what is needed to make a memorable vacation stay and that is exactly what you will get with our home. You can be assured there will be no surprises when you arrive and that everything will be spotlessly clean and prepared for your arrival.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

This lovely beach house was exactly as advertised in HomeAway. It was perfect for our first family vacation - very homey and comfortable. Everyone loved the pool and it was only a short walk to the beach. We highly recommend this house.

The house and property are very well taken care of and the location is great

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived the whole family just walked from room to room commenting on everything was provided just like home. I love to cook and the kitchen had everything I needed to make any meals I had planned for the week. Having the towels and bed linens provided was an added bonus. The way the living, dining, and kitchen area and are set up made it great for the family to all be together. The decks and the wooden furniture are amazing and the craftsmanship are excellent. I worked 43 years in construction and know when something is done the right way. We loved the pool and jacuzzi. They made a perfect ending to the day. Also the beach chairs and umbrellas were an added bonus. I recommend this home to anyone. Nelene is great and is ready to answer any questions and needs. Thank you Nelene for a great family experience!!! 👏👍😄

A FIVE STAR experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time and stayed in a beautiful home during our vacation!!! The home was in a very nice and quiet location in S. Nags Head. The home was beautifully decorated and updated!! There was plenty of room and the sites from all the windows were awesome. We sat out on the balconies every morning and evening enjoying the beach breezes. The kids loved the pool and the jacuzzi was a hit too for the adults. We had a nice walk to the beach each day and could come and go as we pleased, for lunch or a night walk on the beach. The outdoor shower allowed us to rinse the sand before entering the pool and house!! We used the grill for some great meals. Would definitely recommend this location and home to anyone. Hopefully we will be back again next year!!! I rate this a 5 star!!!

This house, on this beach, was exactly what we needed! The house had everything and the owner was wonderful to work with. The owner took time to make recommendations for local restaurants and activities in the area.

The house was marvelous! It had all the comforts of home and more.

Perfect Location and Perfect Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Nelene's property in South Nags Head. The location could not have been better with the secluded, natural beauty of the Outer Banks but the closeness to Nags Head shopping, grocery stores, and restaurants. The house fit our needs perfectly for our family of 5, and an additional family of 4 that joined us. The pool was a highlight for my kids, who had a blast swimming in the evening while my husband grilled. The beach was just a short walk away and we enjoyed playing in the sand and the ocean. The wildlife we saw was amazing! We frequently watched dolphins just 50 feet off shore jumping and swimming in the waves. The Pelicans were a constant entertainment as they dove for fish and soared over the surf. We saw a fox two evenings while sitting out on the porch. We also saw several deer, and a very prehistoric looking LARGE turtle crossing the road right by the house! We truly loved everything about this vacation and are so thankful to have had the opportunity to stay in this wonderful house. Nelene was very attentive and helpful in our trip planning process. The house was perfectly set up and we had no need to contact the owner during our stay. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway to the OBX!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the review of our vacation home. We are so happy you and your family had a wonderful time and enjoyed our home as much as we do. Our location on the quiet beach of South Nags Head is what sold us on the house when we were originally looking to purchase property on the Outer Banks. We definitely feel that we have the best location on the Island. Its always great to hear that the dolphins put on a show for our guests!!!! We look forward to having you and your family back for another vacation soon! Take care, Nelene

Located just a few miles from Jennettes Fishing pier and the Nags Head Pier. Jockeys Ridge is just a short distance away so you can learn to hang glide or just fly kites. Be sure to visit the Aquarium in Manteo which is about a 15 minute drive away to get a first hand look at the fish and sea creatures of the Atlantic. Oregon Inlet Fishing Center is just a few miles South where you can see the fishing boats come in about 4 pm. each day and display their catch on docks. Bodie Island Lighthouse is 1 mile South of us so don't miss this great lighthouse destination. Be sure and enjoy the many many seafood restaurants that offer local fresh seafood. Shopping at the Outer Banks Outlet Mall is only 5 minutes from our home. While you are close to all of the attractions the Outer Banks has to offer, you have the benefit of enjoying the calm slow relaxing beach days in South Nags Head.
