About Dale Davis

After living most of the previous 30 years abroad (Japan, Guam, Morocco, the UAE, etc) we settled in Kitty Hawk, NC in 2010. We love the laid back beach lifestyle of the OBX and enjoy the challenges that come with 'life on a sandbar.'

Dale Davis purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Dale Davis chose Outer Banks

With two large cottages separated by an Art Gallery/Gift Shop we felt this property offered a unique opportunity for investment. We completed renovations of the two cottages in August 2012 and look forward to opening the Gallery in May 2013.

What makes this cottage unique

Guests will love the location, comfort, and value of the Pirate Coast Cottages. So close to the beach but not right on the Beach Road with all its noise and traffic.

Family fun and easy access to beach

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed the week. The house is convenient to everything and has ample parking which we needed. Walk to beach was easy. House had plenty of beach chairs. We brought our dog which was awesome; no kennel. Kitchen is tight; basically a galley- type kitchen. Has all the basic utensils. Living room was open and comfortable. Beds were comfy. There's ceiling fans in the two master bedrooms. Bathrooms ok. Decks off all bedrooms. We would definitely stay there again. Thanks Dale!

Very comfortable; great value and location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time here. The house was clean and comfortable and a very close walk to the beach & shopping. It was my family and my parents and we loved having 3 & 1/2 bathrooms. Owner was very easy to work with. We would definitely stay here again!

Great Location, House Needs some TLC

  • 3 of 5

The greatest attribute of this property is its location to the beach, grocery shopping, and Nags Head restaurants. Options for each are within a 5 minute walk away. Plus, the rates are reasonable, and it is pet friendly.

The property itself is in need of some serious love. Several repairs need to be made both inside (ie., large gaps in the laminate flooring, broken towel rack in downstairs master bath), and outside (ie. the door to the outdoor shower shared with the other rental unit next door has been torn off; part of the vinyl roof fascia is missing). My son got several splinters in their feet walking on the upper balcony. The furniture and the décor is dated. No major issues, but a bunch of small ones that add up to paint a picture that the property is perhaps past its prime or in need of some new investment.

If you're looking for something beyond basic amenities at a reasonable price and great location, this isn't for you. No pool, no patio, no game room, no hot tub, county-park-style charcoal grills, obstructed views, and a landscape that probably hasn't been touched in decades. You also need to be comfortable with sharing the outdoor spaces, including the shower and parking lot, with the folks in the other unit. But if you're looking for a bargain that sleeps 8 in the heart of Nags Head and you want to bring your dog along, this is a great option.

Owner's Response: Justin, Thanks for your comments. At the end of every season there is usually an accumulation of small repairs required (such as a broken towel rack). I am slightly confused by your reference to items such as a pool, patio, hot tub, etc. There is no suggestion in the property description that any of these amenities are included and if they were the rates would certainly be much higher. We provide exceptionally clean, convenient, and comfortable accommodation in an unbeatable location for an incredibly affordable price. We hope you appreciated the value and flexibility we offer.

A Fantastic Weekend Reunion

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, everything was as advertised, the beach access is very close and it was a great place for my college friends and I to have a reunion since being dispersed across the state! Check in and check out were both very easy, and we all would love to visit again!

The only negative through the whole weekend was the Sony sound system with they Ipod dock is for the old type of Ipod with the large charging port. I assumed that there would be an auxiliary port to plug into. This was very minor, and did not negatively effect the weekend in the slightest.

Thank you Dale for providing a great weekend

Just A Few Steps Away!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I brought my boys, aged 11 and 14, and a lab dog to Pirate's Coast Interceptor and we all had a wonderful time! We loved being within walking distance of several restaurants, ice cream, galleries, and of course the beach! The walk to the beach never felt too long, but one should make sure to stay on the paths as the plants along the sides grow terribly painful stickers; shoes are a must! We loved the two floors which provided enough for all four of us to have space. The faux wood floors (Pergo?) were lovely and easy to clean and care for, but my dog was pitifully scared to walk on them! Fortunately the rug was only a "few steps away." The decks offer just enough sun and breeze and a bit of a view as well. The kitchen was very clean and had all the pots, pans, appliances and dishes you could want. Be prepared to bring your own cooking oils, sugar, flour, etc. as the house is only stocked with salt and pepper. Also bring your own paper towels and cleaning supplies as well as hand soap, dish soap, and dish detergent. Fortunately the Food Lion grocery is just a few blocks away, easily walked. The video gaming system was in working condition but visitors should bring their own games. However, who would want to? The beach is right there, the shopping and sight-seeing is fun, and the nearby dunes provide hang gliding lessons to people as young as 4! (Highly recommended!) The house has an outdoor shower that is imperative when returning from the beach as cleaning up sand inside is quite a chore. My dog loved the small yard, and the streets of the neighborhood were quiet enough to feel safe going for a jog. We look forward to returning someday. We did notice the property is for sale. We hope it stays on the rental market.
