About Michael VanCuren

My wife and I have lived on the Outer Banks for over 30 years. We love the beach and own several rental properties. Of all our properties, Sails Commission is our favorite and the one we use as our home away from home. You may ask why we need a home away from home while living on the Outer Banks. Once you have spent your vacation at this house you will see why. This house is our refuge from the real world. Although the house is rented most of the time, we love the Outer Banks in the fall and winter. We spend many days wrapped up on the front deck enjoying the view. We may even get lucky and catch a view of an occasional whale traveling north.

Michael VanCuren purchased this house in 1999

Why Michael VanCuren chose South Nags Head

Why Not. Once you stay here you will wonder why you stayed anywhere else. It is a great location and the cottage is perfect for families that don't want to travel with large groups. But if you are looking for a lot of fancy amenities this cottage is not for you. It is priced affordable so that the smaller families can be this close to the beach.

What makes this house unique

Ocean Views, Ocean Views and more Ocean Views....

Beach, Beach, and more Beach.

It is the reason you come to the Outer Banks to begin with.

Although my cottage may be considered off the beaten path, it is still close to all major attractions such as The Lost Colony Outdoor Drama, Bodie Island Lighthouse, Pirates Cove Marina and much more. You are also in close driving range to many great restaurants and shopping. The convenient pedestrian path at the end of the driveway is great for bikers, joggers, or just a casual walk.

Everything was absolutely perfect for a wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

As we are not regular Ocean Banks renters, it was a relief to find a cottage whose owner was so willing to answer every question (and there were many!) quickly and completely. Michael's contact with us before our arrival and his help with everything during our stay made the vacation totally stress-free. The cottage is spotless and has everything a family would need; the location is right on the beach with a private walkway; the views are awesome. What more can be said? If you want a lovely vacation, rent this cottage!

Owner's Response: Thank you for you review. I am happy that you enjoyed your stay and liked the cottage. Thank you for your comments on my performance as your host. I take pride in my efforts to make your visit as stress free as possible. I find communication with my guest is important to their experience with me as well as mine with them. I hope you will return again and have great memories of your visit for years to come.

Outstanding location! Comfortable property!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I took our 4 kids (ages 11, 10 and 6 year old twins) across the country to the OBX and had a great time at Mike's home. The property is literally on the beach with fantastic views! There are a total of 6 TVs (if you are a slug and want to stay inside) and the wifi is very fast and reliable. There are no linens (Mike is very upfront about this), so one will need to bring bed sheets and towels. We found the home to be very comfortable, but not too fancy where I felt concerned about my young children damaging the property. I give this property my highest recommendation and would stay there again in a heartbeat when I return to the OBX!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and the house was as described. It is true my cottage is not fancy and if glitz is what you want, Sails Commission is not for you. I keep my cottage comfortable and family friendly. After all, the reason you are here is out the front door on the beach. It pleases me that you will return to my cottage your next visit to the Atlantic coast. Thanks again for the photo of your beautiful family having fun. Nice touch... From my ocean to yours, all the best.

We loved it!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cottage by the ocean!! It was perfect for us and our family! It was a great location right by the beach, and close to restaurants, the pier, and plenty of other stuff to do. There was a beautiful view and it was very cozy. Mike was very nice and helpful. We will hopefully be returning to this house in the future!!

Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed beautiful views from the deck of the ocean and beach. The house was exactly as described in the pictures, directly on the beach, was clean and everything worked perfectly including TV and WIFI. Our host was prompt in replying to all questions and couldn't have been more helpful. I would definitely recommend it.
