About Ron Mann

My wife, Shannon, & I have been married for 25 years. We have one daughter, and a Shitzu named Sissy (my daughter named her that because that was the only sister she wanted). We are Bible believing Christians and we consider ourselves to be very blessed with all that God has given us.

Ron Mann purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Ron Mann chose Nags Head

We chose South Nags Head because it is close to all of the restaurants, shops, and 'things to do', but it's not right in the heart of all the people that vacation on the Outer Banks. Our beach house is located on a private street with semi-private beach access available only to the guests of E. Oriental St (10 cottages). Both of us spent many summers as kids and young adults vacationing in Nags Head and always wanted a place of our own at the beach. South Nags Head is close to everything yet still quiet, peaceful, and relaxing. Also, waking up each morning to crashing waves and dolphins in the surf is a real plus for us!

What makes this cottage unique

Being right at the beach is spectacular! with just a few steps you are 'in the water'. The semi-private beach access means you can spread out and enjoy the beach with a game of volleyball or touch football without having to worry about encroaching on other people. The views here are amazing with the sunrise over the ocean and watching the dolphins cruise up and down the shoreline every morning. At night night there is nothing like going to sleep hearing only the waves crashing on the shore. It truly is very relaxing!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our recent stay at your lovely home in Nags Head. It was the perfect place for a girls' getaway and it even snowed while we were there!!

Thanks so much for making our time as pleasant as it could have been!

Great house, perfect location, very responsive owner

  • 5 of 5

Just finished a 3 day, 3 night stay at Sand Mann. The house was in great shape upon arrival, very clean. Can accommodate 9-10 people with no issue. The third level deck has great views and the house is about 20 seconds from the beach. The owner was very quick and responsive when I needed a question answered. The area was very quiet, although, being March, all of Nags Head was quiet. The house is a about a 10 minute drive from restaurants, groceries, and bars. It was an excellent trip and we are looking at a trip for next year already.

Because we are VRBO owners, we don't spend any money advertising online or to be managed by a rental company. We rely solely on our reviews, which is the best way for a prospective guest to read first hand what to expect when staying with us. Your review means a lot to us and we are very pleased that you enjoyed our home and all of it's amenities. South Nags Head is the perfect spot, being out of the crowds and the traffic; yet, only 10-15 minutes from plenty of shopping, restaurants and activities. We hope you can joinus again soon!

Great house, steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

The Sandmann is great place - a quiet location literally 20 feet from the beach with nice views of the ocean from the decks. The neighborhood is ~10 minutes south of Nag's Head, so easy to get to town for supplies or restaurants, but also out of the way and more peaceful. The house is clean, comfortable, and updated. We stayed with mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, and two little kids (5 and 2) and it worked out well. The bunk beds were great for the kids.

Comfortable, cozy and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't be happier with our stay at The Sandmann. From pre-trip communication with Ron to our first impression as we entered the home, we knew we had made a good choice for our 5 day stay. Even the January weather cooperated with us! The home was clean, comfortable, beautifully decorated and spacious. We enjoyed walking out the door and being on the beach within minutes. Thanks so much Ron for checking in with us after our arrival and making sure we had everything we needed for our stay. We explored from Currituck to Hatteras, had wonderful seafood, and enjoyed many hikes in different wildlife refuges. We can't wait for a return trip to the OBX.

Beautiful house and views of the ocean

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house and views of the ocean! We loved being so close to the water! Plenty of space for all 8 of us. Close to Kitty Hawk and Roanoke Island, lots to do there. We truly enjoyed our stay and hope to go back in the future!

Owner's Response: We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at SandMann. Being so close to the ocean where you can hear the waves crash against the shore at night makes for some peaceful sleeping. We hope you will stay with us again next year!

Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a great cottage. The beds are very comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped, and the cottage has a nice view of the beach. It's conveniently located close to town, but far enough away from traffic and noise. Has a great deck with a picnic table and beach chairs. Next time we return to Nags Head, I'll definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and that our home met or exceeded your expectations. Part of the appeal of the area that led us to south Nags Head is that it is quiet and away from the noise and traffic yet, less than 10 minutes from all of the shopping, restaurants and plenty of activities. Thanks for staying at SandMann and hope you can join us again soon!

Sandmann Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and very comfortable. There was no paper towels or toilet paper. Maybe that was listed as a need to bring, but I did not notice that. Otherwise, it all went well. The owner was great with everything. Would definetly recommend it as a place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review and for choosing to stay at SandMann. We, normally, provide one roll of toilet tissue per bathroom and one roll of paper towels in the kitchen; which is detailed in the listing as well as the Rental Agreement. If you did not have these on your arrival, I apologize and I wish you would have called me and would have had them delivered. But, other than that, I am glad to know that you found our home clean, comfortable and met your expectations. Please join us again soon!
