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 Nags Head
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!

Great location in Nags Head
This is a very clean and spacious home in a great location. The beach is close by and so are other area attractions. Everything you could need and more are included in this rental. Homeowners are welcoming and easy to work with. This was our first time in the Outer Banks and we would love to return to this property again.
It was such a pleasure to have you and your family as our guests. We're so glad you enjoyed your Outer Banks visit and look forward to seeing you again!
Ideal Family Getaway
We've stayed at a lot of rental properties. I take my time and look (often for hours) through multiple web listings to find the right location, price, amenities for our family. When I found this listing, I was so excited -- the reviews and photos looked like a winner! After a 2-day drive, we were ready to settle in to our weeklong beach rental.
First impression: Very clean, well-decorated, larger than photos with a friendly, open floor plan. Then you meet Christine and Mitch (the owners) and they are THE nicest people. They have thought of everything. There are beach towels, beach chairs, beach toys. (The beach itself is a few minutes in a straight line, down one block, and over one dune). There are copious clean towels, exttra blankets, books, games, pamphlets and brochures about the area. And the kitchen has everything you could possibly need - including a crock pot, mixer, blender, the works! And tucked just off off one the bedrooms is a sweet little play area with toys, books and games for the littles.
It truly feels like a home away from home. It is an ideal family getaway. We played board games on the one rainy day we had. Any minor issue or question and Christine and Mitch are on it. They respect your privacy and make themselves available to you as much or as little as you need. It is so comfortable, affordable, dog-friendly (our pooch was right at home), family-friendly, and a great location with truly nice owners upstairs. I have never stayed in such a well-appointed rental. They have everything you need - you just show up with your groceries!
We will most definitely stay here again if we should return to Nags Head. What a gem!
Perfect Weekend Getaway
My wife and I came for our 'babymoon' to relax for the weekend. The home is incredibly clean, the kitchen is stocked with everything you will need, there are multiple bedrooms and the living room/den is great.
The location is close enough to walk to Surf n Spoon for ice cream and it's short drive from all of our favorite restaurants (Blue Moon Beach Grill, Tortugas, Fish Heads, Chili Peppers).
We loved it and would absolutely return.
Wonderful family rental!
We wanted a long weekend at the beach with our 2 young daughters, and this was the perfect place! We had plenty of room and everything we needed - and more! A very short walk to the beach, and there are lots of great restaurants and other businesses in walking distance. Our daughters especially loved the Seagreen Gallery and Surfin' Spoon. Christine and Mitch are kind and helpful hosts. We will definitely be back!
We're so glad you had a pleasant stay. We enjoyed meeting your family. Your girls are very dear. Loved, and very impressed with, the artwork in the guest book. Thanks for leaving everything in such great shape. Thanks for choosing our rental. We look forward to having you again.
Cute, convenient and cozy
This first floor unit was everything we needed (2 adults) and more, much larger than the pictures indicate.
The location is just one block from a beach access (dune, not steps) and close to shops and great restaurants. It's well stocked and comfortable and dog friendly! Christine and Mitchell were great to work with and live upstairs in case you need anything. We will definitely be staying here again.
Family reunion at OBX
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!
I love your comment about colored towels!! Great idea! We enjoyed meeting your family, and we are so glad your stay was good. Thanks for leaving things in such great order. Hope to see you again. Best wishes to the grandchildren as they begin a new school year.
