About Andy McVearry

I manage the Sandbar Beach House for the owner, Michael McVearry. He lives in the bed and breakfast in front of this house, though I do not. I've lived on the Outer Banks for many years and have made my living in the service industry my entire life. Because of this, I am able to offer guests a wealth of information about the area. I think of the Sandbar as a home away from home for our guests. I look forward to hearing from you!

Andy McVearry purchased this cottage in 2005

Lovely House

  • 5 of 5

The house is large and has good location to everything. When I first arrived, there was a wonderful gift basket waiting for us and welcoming us to the home. We enjoyed a long weekend with 9 family members for a birthday celebration. Plenty of room for everyone, including a private bath for each bedroom. Beach chairs and pool toys are provided for you use along with plenty of towels and linens. I would definitely recommend and rent again.

Very nice house, centrally located

  • 4 of 5

The house was overall very nice. It has plenty of room, and well situated near everything in Nags Head, and near a very nice beach (surprisingly with some nice seashells), and a GREAT ices/ice-cream place (Booty Treats).

It's only 1.5 miles from Jockey Ridge State Park (amazing dunes, hang gliding school too), and about 3 miles from Kitty Hawk. Good eats nearby in abundance.

The reasons I couldn't give it 5 stars are the following:

1) The bathroom in the top bedroom looks like it could've used a better cleaning (mop job), as could the sofas been better cleaned in the top area (lots of pet hair under the cushions).

2) The pool wasn't properly cleaned (lots of mulch sitting at the bottom of the pool from the surrounding back yard mulch). Truly, it wasn't time (end of April) to use the pool, but my kids wanted in, so they used it, but it wasn't quite ready for use as per the mulch pervading the pool.

3) The pool table was heavily warped and the bottom parts of it were quite warped, as was the foosball table being in terrible shape as well. My recommendation is either fix them or get rid of them.

4) We had an issue with the keys to the place not being usable to lock the door to the house (which was remedied rather quickly, but still).

Yes, that may seem like a lot of minor issues (or moderate issues), but still we had a very nice time, and again the place was nice and everything in the area really more than made up for those things.
