About Amy Underwood

We're the Underwood's. David, Amy, Jean and Lynn. We live in Tidewater, Virginia and have been vacationing in the Outer Banks since 1966 - it's one of our favorite places on earth!

Why Amy Underwood chose Nags Head

The South Nags Head area has always been a favorite. The laid-back atmosphere laced with history and boasting a couple of iconic piers make it a wonderful location. And of course - you can't beat the easy access to the beach!

What makes this cottage unique

Stay in a cottage with the charms of Old Nags Head. Great proximity to the beach, local attractions, fantastic caretakers - Mike and Lisa!

Guestbook comments from the manager

This was lovely little cottage, perfect for a couple or a small family. The location was perfect and had easy access to the beach and restaurants. It was very well maintained with all the amenities of home.

A fantastic, charming, steal-of-a-deal, right across from the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

You couldn’t ask for a better VRBO experience! The kitchen is fully stocked - even a coffee grinder! The bed is comfy! The layout of the cottage is fantastic. Communication with host was easy- everything was as described and she had even left a little Christmas tree/ gift- so so so nice!! My spouse and I kept saying how grateful we were to have found this listing... location offered convenience, wonderful host, comfortable space and fully stocked amenities! Thank you Amy for a wonderful stay!!!! We are looking forward to visiting again!!!

Perfect cottage for a couple's weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage is so cute! My husband and I rented it for the weekend to attend a wedding. Although on the smaller side, it was perfect for us and the dog! Check in and out is super easy and the owners are super responsive! The king size bed is very comfortable and the bathroom was very clean. It is only a block away from the beach, with public access right across the street. Perfect! We would definitely stay again if we are ever back in the area!
