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!

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!

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!

A real life dream!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Sandmann in 2015 and was anxious to return. The quaint neighborhood and proximity to the ocean are so conducive to a relaxing vacation, providing the perfect setting for a meditative retreat. I love the décor of Sandmann and feel so comfortable there. Wish I could make this place my permanent residence!! For those who are seeking a restful haven by the sea, look no further than Sandmann. I rank it high for ocean views, feeling safe (stayed there just days before Hurricane Matthew passed through and I never worried), simple elegance and everything you need for family fun or peaceful solitude. On a rainy day, peer out at the ocean through the patio doors, or take cover on the lower deck to enjoy the breeze and calming sounds of the ocean. In nice weather, begin a beach walk just steps away to witness a glorious sunrise, or head up to the top deck in the evening to catch a glimpse of the setting sun. Sandmann gives you all the best options. Take an easy ride to experience the natural beauty of Pea Island to the south, or north to the shopping pleasures of Duck, with wonderful dining stops in between. Sam & Omie's, a local favorite, is conveniently nearby when you crave some good pub grub. Or, check out the Hungry Pirate in Manteo at lunchtime for yummy fresh-made pizza and unique flatbreads. Everything feels convenient.

The Outer Banks area lives in my heart next to lots of family memories (my parents lived there for 12 years). I feel like Sandmann is my new home away from home. So glad to have found this wonderful VRBO gem! Thank you Ron and family for maintaining such an inviting place to share with delighted renters. I will surely come back again soon!

Owner's Response: Wow! What an amazing review; you must be in marketing. We are so pleased that you chose to stay with us again this year; it let's us know that we are achieving our goal of providing a home where you can just relax and enjoy all of what the Outer Banks has to offer. We strive to provide an exceptionally clean, comfortable, worry-free home where you can relax in a stress-free environment. The only thing you should have to think about is where to eat for dinner; which, may be hard because of the many great restaurants nearby. Thanks again for choosing SandMann and we look forward to having you stay with us again soon. New for 2017 (taking reservations in November 2016) you can check out our newest property located just two streets down from SandMann, at VRBO #908644.

What More Could You Ask For??? Nothing- it's perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 just returned from a week at this house and it is everything you could ask for in a beach rental- the decor is beautiful but not in a fussy way- it's very comfortable. The house is well stocked- there is a large selection of pots & pans, strainer, can opener, coffee maker, toaster and even a Ninja blender. The appliances all appeared new and the washer & dryer were *huge*.

Even though the house isn't technically beach front, it might as well be. It is slightly off-set from the house in front of it so you can see the ocean right from the deck. The house is SO close to the beach- it's maybe 70? feet to the boardwalk from the driveway. It takes me longer to walk to my own mailbox than it did to walk to the beach! It was so close we felt comfortable allowing our older children to run back and forth to the house to use the bathroom, get a forgotten item or a snack, etc.

The owner was excellent to work with- he responded very quickly, usually within the hour, whenever I had a question.

The only flaw in the home, and it is very minor, is that there are no blinds on the kitchen door window- since the kitchen, dining room & living room are all an one large open concept room, anyone who is outside at night can you see you inside walking around in your pjs. There are extra sheets in the master bedroom closet that you could use to hang over the bracket mounted on the door for where the blinds are supposed to be. Otherwise, this home is absolute perfection- we've stayed in many, many vrbo houses over the years and this one is top notch.

Home for family, clean, nice decor, modern

  • 4 of 5

Loved being steps from beach. Beautiful views of the ocean, sunrises, stargazing. Quiet and relaxing. appreciate all the amenities and how well the property is managed.

Hope to return!

Only thing would mention is the exterior needs repairs-peeling paint, Maybe that's a seasonal repair w/ elements of ocean environment :)

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and all that our home has to offer. We do apologize for the peeling paint on the exterior of the home and you are exactly right, that it is a yearly task keeping the exterior of the home in pristine condition being right on the ocean. We have scheduled to have the exterior of the home completely re-done in late November with low maintenance, harsh environment resistant exterior. Please feel free to check back in December to see pics of the new exterior. We would love to have you back as our guest again soon!
