About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Overlooks the 13th fairway, and the sunset is beautiful from the deck with a cool drink in hand! This cozy cottage is conveniently located in the Village of Nags Head, a soundside golf community, but is also convenient to the ocean as well. The ocean is less than one mile and the Beach Club is just over a mile from the cottage. At MP 14, fine dining and shopping are at your fingertips, as well as parasailing, Go-Karts, miniature golf, and of course plenty of good fishing!

Master bedroom and bath on lower level with private deck. Two bedrooms on middle level, one with queen and one with two singles, bathroom, and washer and dryer. (Queen size air mattress and pump available for use for additional guests) Family room and kitchen on upper level, and a deck with furniture and sound views. Comfortable furnishings and beds, and each bedroom has a TV with cable. High chair, baby gate and porta crib on premises.

Outside shower and plenty of beach chairs, toys, umbrellas, boogie boards and other beach necessities provided for guest use. The Village of Nags Head has two soundside parks that are perfect for crabbing, kayaking, and are also great places to take your dog for some swimming and running around! Both soundside parks also have dock access for sailboats or other small size boats/water rec vehicles.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for 2 nights and had a great time. The split-level layout is great for privacy and staggered times for waking up and going to bed. The home is quite comfortable and the decor is very beachy and relaxing. The house is extremely clean and smelled so fresh. The owner, Val, is such a pleasure to work with, and she responds very quickly to questions. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and were quite happy with our choice.

Great deal for a nice getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for the weekend and had a great time! Extremely accessible to the beach, grocery store, etc. All the amenities you need are available at the house. We attended a wedding at the country club, super convenient as the house is on one of the greens. Valerie was very responsive and flexible with our check-in/check-out. Highly recommend!

So Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

I am so glad that my family booked this home instead of one of the local hotels. There was plenty of space for my family of four and our sweet basset hound. The owner was very prompt in answering my questions and getting in and out was a breeze. Love the view from the upper deck! I also loved being close to all the restaurants and shops. The proximity of Fresh Market was a nice surprise! We would definitely recommend this property to families that are in the OBX area!

FABULOUS cottage!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay for a week! A home away from home for my family and pup. All the amenities you could ever imagine are provided right at your fingertips! We enjoyed a Biplane ride with OBX biplanes, numerous trips to the beach (So glad there were boogie boards, chairs and umbrellas available for our use!), the local aquarium on the one rainy day we had and much, much more! I highly recommend this property for your next OBX vacation!

Excellent experience for our first rental

  • 5 of 5

This was our first rental experience, and actually first trip to OBX and we are hoping to return again next year! Val, one of the owners, was wonderful to work with, she answered all of our questions in a timely manor and made the rental process very smooth. The location was great for us. We have 3 children 6 (he actually turned on this vacation :), 3, and 16 months. We loved how close we were, walking distance, to Food Lion, the dollar tree (needed to get some rainy day activities to entertain our kids), and restaurants. We did the beach club membership which was nice and relaxing for our kids as well, it seemed a little outdated, however, met all of our needs. Hopefully another year we will be able to try out the shuttle service that takes you right to their club/beach access, however, we decided not to since all of our kids are in carseats. The overall location is great too, seemed like we were right in the middle of everything. Thanks Val for the great week, hoping to return again!
