Overview

Nags Head Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE "AVERAGE NIGHTLY STAY' IS A MEANINGLESS NUMBER WHAT IS RELEVANT IS THE RATE FOR THE DATES YOU ARE INTERESTED IN

Our ocean house has a one-bedroom, one-bath, 500- square foot efficiency suite perfect for a single, couple or couple with a baby. It has a private entrance, efficiency kitchen (no stove), living room, outdoor space and direct ocean access.

Generally the Guest Suite is only available when my wife and I are not in town. However, during the Summer 2016 (early May to early August) our son, Garrett, will be living in the main quarters of the home while he works at Owens, a local iconic restaurant. No worries though, you are still welcome to use the decking, outdoor shower, and beach access. Garrett is respectful and understand that our guests' enjoyment of the amenities and a quiet and relaxing stay is paramount. He will be there to assist you with our 'beach concierge' services, answering any questions you may have about your stay, our properties, the best surfing spots, and other local attractions and food venues.

IF YOUR DATES ARE NOT AVAILABLE IN THIS COTTAGE, CHECK OUT COTTAGE #5, NEW TO THE RENTAL MARKET: http://www.vrbo.com/857353

Great cozy place

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for our 20 year anniversary, and it turned out great. We had a great walkway to the beach, it was nice, sitting right outside on the beach. It wasn't crowded which for July I thought for sure it would be. We went to four of the restaurants the owner recommended, the Blue Moon was our favorite. We live in Virginia Beach, and our seafood is awesome there, but Blue Moon did not disappoint. It was nice having the pier right next to the house, hung out there at night. View is great. The house is small and perfect for a couple. We didn't do any cooking, but they had all the amenities, bed was very comfy and it was clean. I would definitely recommend and come stay again.

Great oceanfront get-away with your dog!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and cute effiency! My dog and I enjoyed our stay. The kitchen has everything you need. The only concern I had was the portable AC unit didn't work very well(blew hot air) and leaked water on floor. After I turned it off the vents from upstairs made it better. I would definitely recommend it and will be coming back again! The location was great and the Nags Head pier is close by. Thanks for a perfect get-away!

Owner's Response: So glad you and your pup enjoyed the visit. Hope that you will be able to return and enjoy the guest suite and the beach again. The guest suite has cental air and heat. The unit you referred to was the dehumidifier. The guests that immediately preceeded you could not figure out how to empty it, and I surmise, after my examination of it in conjuction with the note they left about it, may have mishandled it. Needless to say, it now leaks and has since has been removed from the unit. Sorry if it caused you any inconvenient.

Wonderful beach access; clean apt. with very comfortable bed.

  • 5 of 5

We had everything we needed to be comfortable, and were happy to be able to take our small dog. Beach access allowed us to close off entrance and exit to beach so we could take our dog off leash on deck next to ocean which was nice while we were sitting out enjoying the sun and before dinner cocktails. Even though it was in the high 50's during the day, the deck was surrounded by dunes so it was very warm for sunning and sitting until dinnertime. We cooked on the grill part of the time and were very close to carry-out seafood restaurants. Owner is very accommodating; even left us a vase of beautiful yellow tulips to enjoy for our stay. We had a great time and would visit again.

A little slice of Heaven!!

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't have asked for a more lovely place to spend some quiet time with my husband and dogs! The cottage is absolutely adorable, the decor is lovely...I LOVE LOVE LOVE the tile floors and the bed was so comfortable! The weather was not the best, but the ocean deck was amazing. The wind whipped around the deck, but didn't hit us sitting on it! It was like we were in a bubble!! The location couldn't be beat...we were so close to everything, but it felt like we were on a private beach. Oh, and don't even get me started on how much I want an outdoor shower at home, now!!! :) The indoor shower drained very slowly, but after I discovered the sheer awesomeness of showering outdoors, I didn't shower indoors again...even in the wind and rain!!! Many many thanks to the owner for sharing such a wonderful slice of Heaven with us!! Can't wait for my next visit!!! :)

Exactly as stated!

  • 4 of 5

Great place for a get away! Owner is pleasant to work with and makes sure the guest is taken care of. Total respect for privacy. Simple but pleasant place to stay ! The shower is not a issue as stated in other reviews. If you adjust the shower head flow to the drain flow everything is great. Excellent place for the sportsman or couple looking to get away. The beach access is awesome! I will repeat! You can't beat the value!

very romantic

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I wanted to get away for a few days to the Outer Banks. We had never been before and the owner was on-hand to show up around and even provided a list of local sites and restaurants near the Guest Suite. The suite is small but the back yard and deck are amazing - you can literally just walk out the door and onto the beach. We spent alot of time on the deck just watching the waves. It is also close to everything. My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves and would stay again.
