About Christine and Mitchell Lively

We moved to the Outer Banks in 1985. Our rental is on the ground floor; we live upstairs. Mitch runs the art gallery and frame shop, and during the winter I teach second grade. We have two children who enjoyed growing up in Nags Head. Their summers were filled with daily time at the beach. We have fond memories of Sunday afternoons on the beach with neighbors and friends. Both children grew to love the water, with our son becoming an avid surfer. We enjoy walks on the beach with our dogs as we hunt for sea glass. As a family who likes to read, Mitch and I are spend time on the deck with a good book, an early morning cup of coffe, or an evening glass of wine. After a year of teaching, I am always ready to spend time at the beach with a good read! We also enjoy riding our bikes or walking in the neighborhood.

Why Christine and Mitchell Lively chose Outer Banks

We chose to offer a rental in our neighborhood because it is a quiet, family-friendly area. Families and couples can come here and be as busy or as laid back as fits their preferences. We especially like being centrally located on the Outer Banks.

What makes this apartment unique

When on vacation, we prefer time to relax and enjoy family and friends away from the hectic every day pace. For us this includes clean, comfortable accommodations at an affordable price. That is what you will find in our rental. The 2-minute walk to the beach makes it easy to be on the beach at any time of the day with no parking hassles. We are within walking distance of coffee shops, restaurants, galleries, a bait shop and grocery store. Being centrally located makes it an easy drive to many wonderful attractions such as the Wright Brothers Memorial, the new historical landmark Jennette's Pier, Jockey's Ridge State Park, a soundside beach, Nags Head Woods, and to Manteo to visit the historic waterfront or attend the outdoor drama 'The Lost Colony' as well as shopping areas. Being between the highways offers a safe place for walking, bike riding, or running. We have two fenced patio areas offering a quiet, private place for relaxing. The YMCA is only half a mile from our home. With our guest passes, you and your family will have full access to all the amenities offered there. Since we live here, we can answer questions about a local services you may need or desire including where to find local produce as great prices and directions to the freshest seafood!

Family reunion at OBX

  • 5 of 5

The Lively home was a great spot for our trip, with our four grandchildren! It was centrally located close to galleries, groceries, beach, and the rest of our family that gathered from 7 states! Well equipped home for us! Leon and I enjoyed the patio for reading the paper and drinking coffee while the kids still slept!

Altho the beautiful white towels were lovely, I wished for 6 different colors of towels, so I could figure who it was who didn't hang up the towel after showering!!! Loved the outside shower as well!!

Thanks, Christine and Mitch!

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Was very impressed with the property inside and out very clean and neat. The owners were super nice,respectful,helpful and gave you all the privacy you need. Very short walk to the beach and some restaurants and stores. All beach supply's we're provided chairs,unbrella, surf boards ect... Beaches are pet friendly. Vehicle friendly in some spots with a permit. Food was great no matter where you go. Would suggest charting a boat if you want to catch any fish. We would/are definitely going back next year for sure.

Perfect family rental

  • 5 of 5

My husband, toddler, and I had a wonderful weekend stay. The pictures don't do the place justice - it is roomy and very well kept. The furnishings are like a home, not a rental, and everything was spotless. We found the kitchen to be well equipped and the apartment is a very manageable distance to walk to the beach. The patio and large grassed lawn was wonderful for my son to run around and let off some energy. We enjoyed walking to nearby eateries and would definitely stay here again. The only thing of note is that the shower is a bit tight and there is no bath tub. This was completely disclosed in the listing, but I missed it, and that was tough with my 3-year old. Overall, an excellent value and wonderful place!
