Location Details

You certainly won’t have any trouble finding things to do while on vacation, as this property is surrounded by tons of land and water activities, many of which are just a short walk away!

This property is on a street with public beach access and is just 800 feet from the shore, so bring your swimsuit and beach towel and get ready for a day lounging on the sand and swimming in the ocean. Any fishermen in your group won’t want to miss out on casting a line from the Nags Head Fishing Pier - located less than 2 miles from your front door.

From pizza to seafood, there are tons of restaurants within walking distance that are sure to satiate your appetite when you don’t want to cook for yourself.

While you're in the area, head down to Kill Devil Hills and see the launch spot for the first successful airplane flight at the Wright Brothers National Memorial. Or, try to figure out what happened to the 'Lost Colony' when you stop by the Roanoke Island Festival Park.

Whether this is your first trip to the Outer Banks or the continuation of an annual tradition, you’ll want to return to this lovely vacation rental home year after year!

    The property is updated and extremely clean. Comfortable beds. Convenient to the beach. Owner is wonderful. Clear communication, accessible and goes out of her way to ensure you have a very wonderful stay. The welcome basket was a a very personal touch that shows she cares. We would definitely stay again.

  • Outstanding and just unbelievable experience


    I have never stayed in any property online other than a hotel. Let me just say i will never stay in a hotel on vacation again. This cottage on the beach was the most comforting and homiest feeling place next to my own home that ive ever stayed! We were greeted before our check in, were given a post card and a home baked lemon blueberry bread (by far better than any where i had and i’m a food snob), the place was immaculate you could smell how clean the air was, no dust anywhere, i have bad allergies and it was actually easier to breathe than my own home! We enjoyed the fully stocked kitchen, appliances, netflix and satellite tv, there was a guest book to sign and add to. Then there were pamphlets and an entire scrapbook of places to go, things to eat, things to do!!! There’s puzzles and games for if you get stuck in on a rainy day but don’t want tv, there are clean towels and washcloths in each room. The furniture has been updated since i seen the pictures online and all of the furniture was completely comfortable. I am not even home yet and i’m leaving this review!! I need to find out what kind of mattresses were there because i need one of those in my life. The area is quiet away from all the hustle and bustle, yet just outside the neighborhood everything is within walking distance that you’ll ever need for your stay. The beach is right down the street literally maybe a handful of houses and then you cross a one lane each way not busy-at-all cross walk and bam there’s the beach! Very pet friendly here too. Even our dogs were treated like guests!!! They provided a dog blanket, dog bed, dog bowls, and place mat for the dogs!! It’s insanely perfect. I would rate this above and beyond any place in existence. Best. vacation. EVER! Thank you so much i can’t even explain. If you need a place to stay, stay here, you’ll regret not having this experience.

  • Modern Vintage Cozy House with easy access to all!!


    We went on a quick 5 day trip to OBX and found this ideal location for our family to stay. This house was right in the perfect area as we traveled everyday to see lighthouses, horses, deer and every OBX town we could find. We also enjoyed the easy access to the beach and open floorplan for family game night and fellowship. Would definitely stay here again! The host was amazing checking in with us often by email to be sure everything was to our liking! The host also left us a gift basket of goodies too!

  • Perfect house and perfect location!


    This was the perfect house for our family of three and we even had an extra bedroom w/ a queen size bed that wasn't used. Location was perfect in that it was only one block from the public access to the beach. Lots of coffee and restaurants within walking/biking distance. Very easy check-in process and the host was very responsive along the way. I wouldn't think twice about staying here again in the future!

    We just loved the cottage. The location was perfect. The owners went above and beyond what they needed to do. Very fast to communicate with you. Very dog friendly. The homemade pumpkin bread was yummy and a really nice touch. Loved the screened in porch. Couldn’t have been happier.
