A quaint, personal, bed and breakfast at Nag’s Head – a great find, especially since it was PET FRIENDLY! A three story building with character, we stayed in one of the smaller rooms, but it was a great room for our short stay. It consisted of two twin beds, small tv, a bit tight for the both of us and...

After looking at hotels in the area that were at least $200+, we found the Sandbar....and what a find! We stayed in the "ocean room"...has 2 bed (twin and double). There is complementary breakfast, complementary happy hour from 4 to 7pm, complementary just of beach equipment/towels/sunscreen/bikes/pool. What a value! We'll be back! Thanks to Beata, the lovely manager, and Mike,...

This place was perfect for us and our corgi for a quick getaway. We arrived to 3 bottles of wine, crackers cheese and olives about 530. The house smelled freshly cleaned and it's nice that it stays unlocked (your key goes to your room alone). This place truly reflects the casual beach atmosphere that is the Outer Banks. I remember...

We have stayed at the Sandbar for couple of days. The place is extremely clean, conveniently located right across the beach and close to everything. Love the nautical décor. Mike, Beata, Kelli and Princess were wonderful hosts. We will be back again.

We booked this B & B for 6 nights with Beata. Nice lady, helped us with reservations and followed up to confirm. We arrived and were disappointed with the outside - drift wood and coastal decorations all over the place, pool littered with toys. Not to mention the dog poop everywhere around the property! Checked in, went to grab a...

Ms. Padma I appreciate every review we receive from our guests. However your review is far from what have really happened. Yes, our bed and breakfast is decorated with coastal items, but we are on the beach and that is what you will find anywhere in costal region. All of our guests love the décor and we always get lots...

We stayed at the B&B recently and had an “ok” time, but it was our vacation so we were hoping for a lot better. There are many five star reviews (which we read before booking), but we suspect they must’ve been written by dog owners who don’t mind the wear & tear and hair that comes with dogs. We were...

Our bed & breakfast is cleaned by professional crew. Our Health Department scoring for cleanliness is 99 points. Health Department inspects places for hairs as well, and if our place was covered with dog hairs the way you describe, we would have not been in the business. Mike McVearry

We came here for our honeymoon and it was absolutely amazing! The Mermaid room was beautiful with a great porch for relaxing. I was first drawn to the Sandbar because of it's positive dog-friendly reviews, and it did not disappoint. Our dog was treated wonderfully by the staff and we loved having visits from Princess as well. The location right...

We stayed at the Sandbar Bed and Breakfast for 2 nights the last week in May. The weather was perfect! The house is very cute and the people working there to greet us were very nice.

This was my 2nd trip to the Outer Banks and this time around opted for a B&B instead of a hotel. The owner and his dog were very friendly and greeted us upon arrival. Our room faced the ocean; which was very nice but the road could be a little noisy. We had our own deck to sit out on....
