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 Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in your beautiful beach home. We loved being right near the beach and we were lucky enough to see dolphins swim by 3 of the days of our visit. Your property is in a great location, easy to get anywhere on the Outer Banks. The house was spotless and very well decorated. We look forward to a return trip. It was great to have beach chairs, umbrella's and beach toys at the house so we didn't need to bring them. It was a great trip, thank you for sharing your beautiful home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice words. We always love to hear that we have been able to help make your vacation memorable by providing a clean, comfortable, amenity-filled beach home where the only thing you have think about is where are we going to eat for dinner. The view, especially, in the early morning is amazing with dolphins swimming near shore and the sun beaming off the ocean really shows the splendor and majesty of God's creation!

Beachy Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the Sandmann along with our 2 daughters, their husbands and our 15 month old grandson. The property is accurately described and looks just like the pictures on Home Away. The layout worked perfectly for our family. We used the kitchen everyday to prepare all our meals and it was great to have everything we needed. We used the washer and dryer everyday which was great for getting all the sand out of our clothes and towels. It was the first vacation we came home from and didn't have any wash to do. The beach chairs, umbrellas , bikes, boogie boards and sand toys were an added bonus to renting the Sandmann. We drove from Wisconsin so it would have been difficult to bring these things along. The house was steps to the beach and the other renters around us were very friendly. We enjoyed our week at the Sandmann and hope to be back in the near future.

Nicely decorated and easy access to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Location. Location. Location. With two little kids, we could not ask for easier access to the beach. The house was nicely decorated and well maintained.

Beautiful home and Location!

  • 4 of 5

We were first timers to the Outer Banks and what an experience! Traveled from one end to other to see all the lighthouses and the wild horses in Corolla. Took the ferry from Cape Hatteras to Okracoke. Loved that little island. So many interesting little shops and restaurants. The Sandmann house was very beautiful and had everything you needed for your stay. The weather was absolutely perfect for the end of April. The owner was very easy to work with as well.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!

Note: your cleaning people need to do a little better job. We found empty soda cans, candy papers and children socks under the beds. There were no kids with us! This is my only complaint.

Owner's Response: First, we are glad to hear that you had a great first visit to the Outer Banks and that you enjoyed our home. Second, I do apologize that you found the home not 100% clean; we have been renting for 4 years and have always used the same cleaning crew and never have had any complaints. I am sure this was a one-time occurrence and I have have spoken to the crew about this and we will not have this problem again. It is our desire that your entire experience be clean, comfortable and relaxing; after all, that's what a vacation is supposed to be! Again, please accept our apology and we would love to have you as our guests again soon.

Wonderful location/Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at Sandmann and had a fabulous time. We had six adults and a toddler. It was our first time in the area and we can't wait to return. The home was even better than the pictures. It was clean and well- equipped . The location was amazing with beautiful ocean views and a very short easy walk to the beach. We all enjoyed morning walks to the nearby fishing pier. We would all go back! I have nothing negative I could say!
