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!

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!

Terrific property, great location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has everything we wanted. It's pet-friendly, handicapped accessible, affordable, spacious, very well-equipped, has wi-fi and cable TV and washer/dryer. In addition, it is clean and well-maintained, tastefully furnished, has central air, has a comfortable patio seating area. It is very close to the beach, and also to shopping and restaurants. Linens are provided, including kitchen towels and beach towels .Floors are brick, wood, tile, with carpet in the bedrooms. The owners also have beach chairs and toys available for your use. There is plenty of off-street parking and green space. It is located on a quiet street, not on a thoroughfare. Christine and Mitchell, the owners, respond quickly and are friendly, but respect your privacy. I would definitely go here again and recommend it to friends.

Everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy. We flew in on an airplane and therefore could not bring anything that a usual rental would need. This place had full kitchen supplies, linens, towels, beach towels, beach chairs, umbrella, sand toys and beach cart. There were many things to keep the whole family entertained: books, movies, board games, outdoor lawn games. Like others have said, it's bigger than it looks in the pictures. It was the perfect size for my family of 4 (most other places were too big!) Very close to the beach an easy in and out for other activities. Thank you!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

The place where I've stayed for years in OBX was booked for my vacation week this year and so ended up at this location instead. It was great. I take surf lessons when I'm in OBX and this location was easily walkable to Farmdog Surf School which is where I take my lessons (I'm really bad... but it's fun and they are also great). Beach access was easy, and there were so many restaurants that were walkable.

I really liked that we didn't have to bring linens and towels which I normally have to. The place is nicely furnished and the kitchen is stocked with anything that you might need.

The owners are extremely friendly.

I will definitely look to stay here again in the future and definitely recommend it!
