1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom - Beach Retreat In Beautiful Nags Head, NC

The Backyard - Nags Head, NC. Located in the most desirable location in Nags Head, this beautiful, totally renovated one bedroom is just 1/4 mile from the award winning beaches of Nags Head and one block from the stunning Roanoke Sound. The Backyard is the ideal retreat for a vacationing couple.

We have it all!! Beach chairs! Fishing Gear! Coolers! Bikes! Just show up with your bathing suit and beach towels and get ready to have a blast!

Completely renovated, our beautiful apartment for two is a true home away from home featuring one bedroom with a Queen bed, 32” HD TV, sliding French doors, custom tiled floor to ceiling mirror, one of a kind art, exposed beam hardwood ceiling with recess lighting, and a sitting area perfect for reading. The dresser provides ample storage space for clothes, shoes, and more. Blinds throughout provide your choice of sunlight or privacy.

With beautiful Island decor featuring unique art from the owner’s personal collection, the living room has comfy couch a 32” HD TV and love seat. This is cooled with central air for your comfort as well as ceiling fans throughout.

The fully equipped kitchen has a, microwave, refrigerator, gas stove with retro hood and hand laid stone backsplash, and everything you could desire to cook, prepare and serve a gourmet feast, heat left-over’s from the great assortment of fabulous restaurants surrounding our property or grill your fresh catch on the gas BBQ grill just out on the deck. The dining nook, adjacent to the kitchen has seating for 2.

The bathroom features a tub and shower and a beautifully tiled one of a kind mirror. Also, no Outer Banks rental would be complete without the essential outdoor shower! (Shared with owners) Enjoy your hot water shower under the sun or stars while the aroma of confederate jasmine fills your senses. Linens and towels are provided – just bring your beach/pool towels.

After your long day at the beach come home and relax on your own backyard deck and enjoy the beautifully landscaped grounds with Koi pond and gardens throughout. Take a nap in the hammock under the shade of the live oak tree! There is also a beautiful sound side pool in the neighborhood that is perfect for relaxing after a long day at the beach that is available to our renters for a daily fee. Also within walking distance of our apartment is a neighborhood sound beach. Here, you can enjoy spectacular views and sunsets! Bring your beach chair and relax.

We will make you feel right at home at The Backyard. This is a downstairs unit. We live upstairs. If you are coming to the Outer Banks to party, shoot off fireworks, and generally make a lot of noise this is not the place for you!! We live in a neighborhood of working people who are not on vacation. We will do our best to respect your privacy and stay as quiet as possible upstairs – just keep in mind that 3 people live upstairs and the normal amount of noise should be expected.

If you are looking for a Motel 6 or Holiday Inn type accommodation - this is not for you. But if you are interested in living with the real people of the Outer Banks - this might just be perfect. Our family also enjoys relaxing outside in the yard and you will most likely see Cary working in the gardens or Buster (our English Bulldog) running around chasing his favorite soccer ball with our daughter in the evenings after work. We are a laid back, fun family and offer to share our beautiful property with you and we are available to answer any questions you may have about local restaurants, etc. Whatever it is – having lived here for over 30 years – we’ve either done it, or know someone who has!

Completely restored, updated and uniquely furnished, we have missed no detail inside or out. You’ll find a cozy, turn-key-ready home away from home with everything you need for day-to-day relaxation. The property is a smoke-free environment.

Please check out our calendar for availability.

About Sandra

Sandra purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Sandra chose Outer Banks

Why stay in a cookie cutter hotel room when you can stay in a a one of a kind beautifully restored apartment filled with unique art and surrounded by lush, tropical gardens in the perfect location for enjoying the sound or beach?

What makes this apartment unique

Walk to the sound...ride your bike to the beach...What could be better?

A great week birding on the Outer Banks

  • 4 of 5

After spending the day birding, "The Backyard" was the perfect nest to return to each evening. It was clean, spacious, and well-equipped. It had everything we needed to cook meals when we wanted, but was also close to lots of great places to dine out. Sandra and Cary were wonderful hosts, always available to answer questions and make adjustments to make our stay comfortable. I'd love to come back in the Spring to see their fabulous garden in bloom!

Quiet, comfortable & spacious

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this unit, The Backyard, for four nights. We were in Nag's Head for the Outer Banks Marathon. This location was only a few miles from both the expo as well as the race start in Kittyhawk. During our stay before the race we enjoyed using the clean, well equipped kitchen to prepare our meals. This ground level apartment is very spacious and attractive in a local, eclectic fashion decorated with artwork, some of which are original paintings and some are prints reflecting the flavor of the Outer Banks. The bedroom has an interesting hardwood ceiling and the bed was comfortable, a necessity for a good nights sleep before the race. Both Sandra and Cary were pleasant owners and provided us with good information and directions. We used the simple one speed bicycles they provided and toured the beautiful neighborhood and even biked to the ocean side of the island. This apartment was everything we expected from the description and more. Had the weather been warmer we would have used the table in our own little patio outside our door. We would not hesitate to recommend this unit to anyone who is looking for a hide-a-way with real character, as it is the opposite of a sterile hotel room for sure.

Quiet, comfortable space for two!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed 3 days staying at the Backyard. The space was perfect for us and included easy access to get to the beaches of the beautiful Outer Banks. When we weren't out enjoying the weather, we came back to a very secluded and comfortable space with everything we needed. Sandra was wonderful to work with and offered up bikes, beach chairs and umbrellas and other beach essentials which came in handy since we flew there and didn't have room to bring those kinds of things. We would stay there again if the opportunity arises.

Comfortable stay in the storm

  • 4 of 5

The Backyard is a conveniently located apartment in Nags Head, well furnished and very comfortable. As luck would have it, our visit coincided with Hurricane Matthew, so we had to contend with power outages and flooding. But the apartment was dry and comfortable and Sandra provided candles and a lantern which made riding out the storm doable. We would definitely go back, perhaps with better weather.

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had an outstanding visit to "The Backyard". Very unique; quiet, welcoming and just down right pleasant. Close to the beach but yet far enough away that you don't have the constant wind. Sandra and Carey made you feel like you were at home. Warm and inviting. Words just cannot express how comfortable we felt staying there. The rental is furnished with everything you need to relax and enjoy the experience. We would highly recommend this rental and hope to stay there again. Thanks so much for your hospitality.
