Nags Head Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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.

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.

Superb

We had a wonderful experience staying at "The Backyard." The accommodations were very comfortable, ideally situated, and well-equipped with everything we needed and more. Most importantly, Sandra was a wonderful host and made us feel welcomed and at home. Her recommendations were spot-on and we look forward to coming back for another stay.

Quite Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful, quiet, and affordable, getaway from our busy days on the Outer Banks. Centrally located, just a short drive to the beach or a short walk to the Sound. Very neat and clean, cool, comfortable. We enjoyed our stay.

Great!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at The Backyard! It was very homey and super clean (and I'm very picky about where we stay on vacation). They provided everything we could need for a great vacation. It rained off and on the first few days of our stay, so we really enjoyed playing the board games in the apartment. We found that it was pretty centrally located for what we wanted to do, and it was an easy walk or drive to the beach also. Cary provided some great restaurant recommendations, which we took and enjoyed also. If you're looking for an affordable, clean, comfortable place to enjoy your vacation, The Backyard is it!

Enjoyable Stay at The Backyard

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son, and I recently vacationed in Nags Head and stayed at The Backyard. This was our first experience using VRBO, and we were very pleased. The property description and customer reviews were accurate. It was very clean and had everything we needed. I especially liked having a full kitchen, as we were able to eat breakfast and lunch there almost every day. There were plenty of restaurants nearby, so the only problem was choosing where to eat. Our favorite was Ladles, which was inexpensive and offered a wide variety of soups, sandwiches, wraps, and healthy options. It's a must for anyone in the area. Our rental was within walking distance of the beach, but we preferred the beach at Jeannette's Pier, so we made the short drive there. We also visited several other nearby beaches along the coast, as well as historic sites like Kitty Hawk. My husband and son took a kayak tour, and we even saw a bear cub on the side of the road! Sandra and her husband were excellent hosts and provided everything we needed for the beach, including towels, chairs, boogie boards, an ice chest, fishing gear, etc. We had a great vacation, and my active son had plenty to do. I would recommend The Backyard to couples wanting a quiet, relaxing getaway, or small families like ours who like to be on-the-go and see as much as possible on vacation.
