Beautiful newly constructed (2012) home, family friendly decor, ocean views, private (12' x 25') swimming pool, and within walking distance to the beach (Admiral Street Beach access is approx. 500 feet). This is an excellent choice for your Outer Banks vacation because of it's proximity (MP 10.5) to shopping, the arts, sightseeing (such as the Wright Brothers Memorial, open year round), and numerous things for both children and adults to do such as laser tag, boating, fishing, bird watching, jet skiing, surfing, kite boarding and eco tours. The Outer Banks has also become a great place for races such as the OBX Marathon, OBX 8k and 5k. The neighborhood is great for walking, jogging and cycling.

Sheets and towels are included for your convenience at no extra charge. All of the bedrooms have TV's w/cable and WiFi access. The elevator (approx 40 inches deep and 48 inches wide with a 3' door opening) services all floors and is great for those have trouble navigating stairwells. This is truly a beautiful home filled with decor reflecting the character of the Outer Banks. This home has bamboo hardwood floors, carpeting in bedrooms, multiple decks and ample space for you to spread out and relax. Baltic Street Beach Access is located approx. 900 feet from this home and offers a handicap ramp to dune top deck that affords outstanding ocean and beach views. The 8th Street beach access (about a mile) provides handicap parking, a ramp and stroller mat onto the beach. There is a WheelEz beach cart and beach chairs available for renters to use. Nags Head Fishing Pier is approx. 1 mile from this home. A spacious outside enclosed shower is available adjacent to the pool, as well as a park grill and stereo system equipped with iPhone/iPod capability. Cornhole and horseshoes are also available. The laundry room is on the first floor. This is a non-smoking home.

Awesome Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Our recent visit to this beach house was one of our best family vacations. The home is absolutely beautiful and so well maintained. The beach house was immaculate and had everything you could possibly need. The location of the property is ideal, just a few minutes to the beach, shopping, and restaurants. The private pool was an excellent place to relax and enjoy the sunshine. The floor plan of the home was perfect, with the third floor kitchen and Great Room the best place to enjoy your morning coffee and the ocean views. Our family enjoyed watching the Fourth of July fireworks from the third floor balcony. The owner was so kind and helpful, and gave a personal home tour upon arrival. The fresh fruit was such a nice personal touch. This beach house exceeded all expectations. It truly is a remarkable destination. We look forward to vacationing here again. Thank you, Rick!!

Great house with a Great location.

  • 5 of 5

This house is very well appointed, clean and very well maintained. You can tell that the owners maintain the property themselves. It has just about everything one will need. No need to bring sheets, towels, spices, carts for the beach, corn hole, bikes, etc. . . it's all here. The property is within walking distance of Food Lion, Ice Cream parlors and several restaurants and very close to the beach.

We have rented this property 3 years in a row for ourselves, our daughters, sons in law and 4 grandchildren. We will be renting again next year. Our grandchildren love the pool and everything else about the property. Each year they always ask for me to extend our stay for another week.

Great week at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

The house was awesome! We enjoyed the quick walk to the beach, spending time on the decks as well as playing in the pool and playing cornhole. The house was well stocked with games, kitchen supplies, and beach toys. We would love to come back in the future!

Beautiful House - Convenient - Perfect for Families

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our friend and I spent a week at Rick's and Vicki's beautiful house the week following Labor Day week. It was the first visit for all of us to the Outer Banks and, boy, did we pick the right place to stay! The cottage was beautiful. Three floors with an open Great Room at the top (living room, dining room and kitchen), decorated very comfortably and tastefully, with a deck facing the ocean off the dining area. We spend lots of time sitting and chatting there. One bedroom connected to a bathroom is also on the top floor. There are three bedrooms all connected to bathrooms and a "game room" with a Foosball table on the second floor. Laundry room and storage on the first floor. As others mentioned, the elevator was a wonderful convenience, especially when bringing groceries or luggage up. The house inside and out was great. Lots of decks and a pool area for lounging; Rick and Vicki really know how to make guests comfortable. Basically, this was my fantasy beach house!

We were only 3, but I can assure you that this house is perfect for almost anyone. Couples with children who would want to share renting a place will find this a great choice. The reviews are true. Rick and Vicki provide everything you need (except food, of course). Towels and bedding are provided as well as "beach accessories" like chairs, umbrellas, and a beach cart to drag everything thing there. It's all included in the rental cost; so nice to not have to deal with all the extra cleaning fees and such that I've experienced with other rentals. The only thing you might want to consider bringing with you are beach towels and/or beach blanket/mat as these were not included with the property.

The location of the house could not be better. The beach is only two blocks away, the Food Lion grocery store is just a few blocks away, and you're not more than a 5 minute drive away from almost anything you could want. We ate at some really good restaurants in the area, most of which Rick and Vicki recommended.

I'm sure everyone who has stayed here loved it and this place books up fast. Don't wait! Book now!! :-)

This was our first time to the Outer Banks and Rick and his wife Vicki made our stay such a wonder and welcome experience. The house was beautiful and the location was perfect. They thought of everything for us. My family was so excited to be there and cannot wait to go back. My grandchildren are still talking about their summer vacation and how they want to go back again.
