Enjoy stunning sunsets over the water from this hidden Nags Head gem! It is the perfect beach getaway for the nature-loving couple or small family. Water views abound from almost every room and both the ocean beach and a beautiful calm-water sound side beach are nearby. With wireless internet throughout the house and on the decks, you can stay in touch while you get away. This house is fantastic any time of year because of the outstanding views. It maintains a quiet and calm feel even in the busiest months. It's the perfect beach cottage for nature lovers, swimmers, birders, hikers, paddlers, cyclists and anyone who just loves the outdoors (whether you're inside or out!) The view can be enjoyed while sitting comfortably inside or under the covered porch as well.
There is a little known, but lovely and large, white-sand, secluded soundside beach, just a short walk down the street, with calm, shallow water that's great for little ones, swimming or a sunset picnic dinner.
The cottage is perfectly located. The area surrounding it is so peaceful---all you will hear is the call of the osprey, the gentle lapping of water coming ashore, and the lovely sounds of nature. However, you are just a few minutes from Nags Head's best restaurants, groceries, and all the beach action if needed. The house is centrally located making it easy to take a day trip south to Ocracoke or head north in search of the Outer Banks' wild horses. You can also fish, kayak, paddle, or windsurf just steps from the cottage! Hike along the shore up to Jockey's Ridge for a 360 view of the Outerbanks, taking in both the ocean and the sound at once. It's the perfect walk--just 12 minutes to the top of the ridge from the house.
Whether you sit and relax on our water view decks or do your yoga stretches there, don't forget to take in all the wildlife around you: pelicans diving for their meals, bunnies nibbling the grasses, osprey and kingfishers cruising the shoreline, sometimes even pods of porpoises can be seen from the decks!
If you're in the mood for the ever-changing Atlantic Ocean, somedays crashing blue, other days green and gently rolling, the beach is at it's best at the 13 mile post. The Atlantic shore is pristine here, free of the crowds you'll find in Kitty Hawk and Kill Devil Hills. The 13 mile post is lined with Nags Head's most beautiful old homes, known as Historic Cottage Row; it is the true heart of Nags Head. The early morning or late afternoon light upon these cottages is sublime. Nags Head's first church, historic St. Andrews-By-The-Sea, is also located just a few blocks away from our cottage, directly between the ocean and the sound, and welcomes everyone for tours or services.
It's a great place for a relaxing getaway. The cottage is stocked with large wine glasses and quality dishes and you can dine with a sunset view each evening. Sip your coffee on the rooftop deck as you gaze out across the water. The water views are what makes this cottage like none other. There are even water views from the indoor showers! Nice touches: 42'' TV, ceiling fans in every room, complimentary curbside recycling (only 5% of Nags Head cottages have curbside recycling), great windows for bird watching, wonderful main room with high ceilings, skylights and large windows with a lovely water view across the sound as far as the eye can see. It's a very special house, come once and you'll want to come again and again.

About the owner: We are originally from Virginia and Maryland but have been coming to Nags Head for close to half of a century. We met in Paris, have both travelled around the world but feel there is no place as relaxing as our beach cottage in Nags Head. The sunsets each day are unrivaled anywhere and walking to nearby Jockey's Ridge is a spiritual experience. We love the outdoors, the ocean, beautiful views, exquisite food and wine, and the house reflects that.
Why the Owner Chose Nags Head: It's all about the water views and sunsets over the water as seen from the cottage! The huge, oversized windows that were put in specifically to enjoy the water views are quite rare in the area. These wonderful windows allow you to gaze out over the water and take in the view along the coast. The sunsets over the water are unbelievably beautiful and that too, is what makes this a one-of-a-kind beach cottage.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Best sunsets over the water in all of Nags Head
