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 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.

Perfect Location and Right Fit for Our Family

  • 5 of 5

This location of this property was great, in Nags Head and close to Kitty Hawk and Manteo. Also, it was between the two peirs and not near any hotels so the beach was quiet and essentially only occupied by those people in the houses on the beach. All the activities are still close by. Jockeys Ridge, Wright Brother Memorial, Lost Colony, Manteo, Cape Hatteras and Corolla just to name a few. The home was clean and came fully equipped, but most importantly was 200 feet from the ocean. The set up worked awesome for our family. One bedroom, bathroom, living room, dining room and kitchen up top and three bedrooms, a bathroom and a family room downstairs. With three older children this was a perfect setup for our family. All bedrooms, the living room and the family room have TVs with cable and the wireless internet was great. Michael was very easy to work with and provided quick feedback related to any questions we had. On the day before we left he checked to ensure our stay was good and if there was anything he needed to know about that needed his attention. He asked you text when you leave so he can get his cleaners in before the next guest. This works great because the cleaning can get done promptly and allowed us to get in by 1pm, essentially picking up another 1/2 day on the beach!!! Thanks Michael for making our stay in Nags Head a great one.

An Oceanfront Gem!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time being just steps away from beach. You can see the ocean from every room and we thoroughly enjoyed watching the dolphins and pelicans from the upper deck every morning. The house is furnished very comfortably and the kitchen had everything we needed.

The house is in a very convenient location to everything you could want in Nags Head. We also took a wild horse tour in Corolla, toured the Wright Brothers National Memorial in Kill Devil Hills, and went on a charter fishing trip on the sound.

We were there the last week in May and the weather was awesome. It was warm and sunny beach weather most days. A storm rolled through in the evening a couple nights but we actually enjoyed watching the clouds roll across from the sound. It was beautiful. Since most schools were still in session, the beach was very quiet and nothing was crowded.

Michael is a great host. He is available and easy to communicate with via text. We would definitely stay at Michael's house again if we return to the Outer Banks.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and kind words. I am happy you enjoyed your stay. You review was so informative and flowing, I believed I would stay there if I didn't own it. I hope you will return again soon. By the way, thank you for leaving my cottage in such good condition. If I hadn't know better, I would have thought my housekeeper had already been there. Until next time, all the best.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

My 9 year old son and I had a terrific mini-vacation in this gorgeous home. Right on the water and unobstructed views. The house is perfect - lots of amenities and a nice wide open top floor with the ocean views! Michael was a wonderful host, very helpful and very kind. We hope to come back next year!!!

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.
