This beachfront cottage in Nags Head fulfilled every one of my requirements: It was very clean, it was steps away from an uncrowded beach, the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed, and Pam (the proprietor) was very helpful. I would definitely return.
If you're looking for a clean, beachfront property at an affordable price, you've found it. Pam and her family were very kind and available for any questions/suggestions about places to visit, eat or just to entertain the kids for an afternoon. We all had a great time and definitely recommend this rental.
We had a great time staying here! Being so close to the water is a must! This was our first time to the Outer Banks and we will be back! The condo is positioned next to another unit so its slightly behind the front one in terms of the front water view but you still have a great view of the water and a perfectly covered patio! We spent many nights sitting out on the patio watching and listening to the ocean and the thunderstorms when they were around. A lot of the other patios were not covered so this was an added bonus! I just wish the chairs were waterproof so we didn't have to wait for them to dry to sit out there. The condo is clean, quiet and well kept. It was very hot while we were there and it seems the AC had a hard time keeping up for a couple days but Pam was right on top of that having it checked out! We went to Fishheads (a restaurant on the Pier barely 10 minutes walking distance on the beach from the condo) and they had great food and excellent 15 cent shrimp from 4-6 pm daily! Even the kids ate them up. We received recommendations on where to catch blue crabs and the best place to fly kites at Jockey's Ridge. We also went to the Pioneer Theatre where they have movies for $7 and $2 popcorn! We climbed to the top of the Bodie lighthouse (about 15 minute drive) and saw a great view of the island (not recommended for 6 year olds you never knew were afraid of heights...)! Thank you Pam for all your hospitality and ensuring we had a wonderful vacation! I highly recommend this condo to anyone travelling with family!
This is a perfect house right on the beach. Dolphin viewing from the porch. Pam a welcoming host. Everything you would want. I'm sure it's perfect for a family with children, though we, an older couple, enjoyed it immensely.
We came with our 18 and 19 year old children to stay for the week from NY. It was absolutely glorious! The cottage is just the right size for a family or small group. Every room has a view of the ocean and the whole place is decorated just beautifully and we felt right at home immediately. Pam left a welcome basket for us with incidentals we might need during our stay (notepad, pen, dish soap, paper towel, etc but the best was a shoppers club card for grocery shopping at Food Lion so we could take advantage of sale items! We thought that was so thoughtful and appreciated it very much!)
The deck is the very best part! Because this house is situated closer to the beach than most others on the strip, we could see the beach completely from Jennettes Pier to Outer Banks Pier. We saw dolphins right outside our deck almost every day. The beach was right outside our door.
The street is residential/rentals and is very quiet but a short drive to the main drag for restaurants and shopping. Bodie Lighthouse is 5 minutes away to the south as was the beach where we rode horseback along the shore at sunset.
I couldn't have asked for anything more. Everything was just, well....Awesome! Thank you, Pam, for sharing your home with us and making us feel so welcome! Til next year, my new friend! We are counting days!
