About Holly Sheets

This property is owned by Dave and Judy Graham and managed by their daughter Holly. This cottage is our home away from home. We hope you enjoy the coziness of this cottage with its owners original paintings and decor.

Holly Sheets purchased this cottage in 1996

Why Holly Sheets chose Nags Head

It's a 'true' beach cottage - its not a stark new cottage, but comfortable with lots of personality.

What makes this cottage unique

What makes this cottage so special? It's away from the hustle and bustle of Kill Devil Hills and Kitty Hawk. The beach is rarely, if ever, overcrowded. Having a lifeguard on the beach in front of our cottage is comforting as we get older and have young ones still running the beach. There is also a walking/biking trail that runs for several miles.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We like all the artwork and decorations. We peeked online at the other LG cottages and they were dull. The puzzles were great for the 2 rainy days.

My family and friends had a wonderful time.

Great beach cottage

  • 4 of 5

Cottage is in a great location, beach is right there. Cottage is in between Jennettes Pier and Fishhead's. Plenty of space with a great outside deck and upper deck. Quick to respond and very easy to work with! Perfect for a girls week!

Location, Location, Location...But...

  • 3 of 5

The outer banks did not disappoint us. We traveled all of it in our week stay. The water was a bit rough at times but warmer than what I am used to in the NorthEast! Restaurants with great food, no complaints at all. Found out about Duck Donuts and hoping they open in Massachusetts!! Loved Jeannette Pier and the ladies in the little store. Being so close to the water was incredible! The house needs improvement and the cleaning crew needs to pay close attention and actually clean. For the $ included for the cleaning ... well, it was not up to par.

Other than that everything else was great. We will be back to that area, just not to that house.

OBX you're in our hearts now!!

Cute and comfy house, lovely beach.

  • 5 of 5

We spent Spring Break at the Laughing Gulf 2 with our 4 yo and my Mother-in-Law and had a fabulous time. The house was clean and nice and comfortable. The decor was charming. The ease of the walk to the beach was exactly what we were looking for! And the beach was just lovely! Good location, would definitely recommend.

Fishing on the banks was forever changed when the first fishing pier – Jennette’s Pier – was opened in Nags Head back in 1939.

in September 2003, Hurricane Isabel swept the North Carolina coast, knocking down about 540 feet of Jennette’s Pier and practically shutting down an Outer Banks institution. It then became time to rethink the fishing pier concept, with the Aquariums taking the lead to rebuild Jennette’s as an all-concrete, 1,000-foot-long, educational ocean pier.

Within walking distance from the cottage, Jennette's Pier is a must-see attraction.

The Outer Banks Pier is 1.1 miles south of the cottage and in the opposite direction is Jennettes Pier .8 of a mile. It is an older landmark pier that has an original beach feeling.

The Outer Banks pier offers, Fish Heads Bar and Grill, www.fishheadsobx.com, that serves beer or wine, fried seafood baskets and much more. There is music every night during the warm months. It's a great little getaway after a long day on the beach.

Also don't forget the outdoor drama of the 'Lost Colony' in Manteo. First staged in 1937, The Lost Colony it is the nation’s premier and longest-running symphonic drama. Written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paul Green.
