This place was just as previous reviewers said, it was wonderfully close to the beach which allowed us to really maximize our time spent at the beach. The fact that this place was dog friendly really sealed the deal because our fur baby always has to come with us. We were very happy with this place and would absolutely stay there again.
This place is amazing. It is cozy and charming, without any of the over-the-top frills and fanciness ($$$) of some other nearby rentals. The fact that my 3 dogs were not only allowed but welcomed sealed the deal for me.
The three bedrooms are lovely and inviting, with comfy beds, nice and new ceiling fans, ample closet and drawer space, and beautiful natural light. The one bathroom is simple and clean, just enough for a beach house and no more than you need. The shower has newer tile and the window makes it bright and cheery.
The first room you enter is a combo kitchen/living room. It is perfect for a beach vacation. There is no dishwasher so you may choose to bring paper plates or plan on washing dishes. We didn't mind this at all. It was great. You can open the sliding glass doors and enjoy a nice breeze, while cooking dinner and doing a puzzle or watching a movie. The house does not have cable other than basic public channels, so I would recommend bringing along a few DVDs or planning to rent at RedBox (at nearby Food Lion) if you like to have the TV on. It is definitely NOT necessary, because of the beautiful views right out the deck. We mostly just listened to music on a portable speaker we brought along.
The deck runs the full length of the house and has amazing views of the sky and ocean and sand. There is a door that locks at the end of the deck so that your 4-legged friends can be out there with you. There are stools and deck chairs where you can sit and enjoy your morning coffee or evening cocktail. The deck also has a bar top where you can eat dinner or place your shell collection from the beach.
Right at the base of the deck steps you will find a hose and shower, beach chairs and umbrellas (these are also sometimes stored in the storage area of the house in front of this one - they share storage space). There is also a nice charcoal grill. Then in 5 to 10 steps, you are right on the sand! Walk over the charming sand dune and down a little slope and you're at the ocean. It is truly beautiful. There is a rental house directly in front of this one, which prevents 180 degree views of the beach, but we didn't feel slighted at all. It was absolutely perfect.
The beach is super dog friendly and casual, without being touristy at all. You feel like you're a local - with folks fishing nearby on the beach and at the pier. The house is removed from the busier thoroughfare (S Croatan Hwy) by two other parallel streets, providing easy access but allowing for privacy from the main drag. It was quiet and peaceful and exactly what we needed to recharge and unplug from daily life.
We absolutely love this place and have already started planning our next trip back. Highly recommend.
This cottage was a good fit for our need. Four adults stayed for a long weekend to attend a wedding in Nags Head. Cottage was clean with everything needed. Having bedding included was a plus and the linens were well presented. Having more cable channels would have been great since it rained most of the weekend. Pam and Junior were responsive to any needs during our stay. Thanks for sharing your home.
Very nice decor and a wounderfull location. Only steps away for the water as advertised which was nice for walks on the beach and watching the sun rise.
