Nags Head cottage description

Our Loon Court Cottage is a traditional beach box cottage that is not your typical tired space with out-dated furnishings. This cottage is bright and airy with panoramic views of the ocean. The cottage is 3rd cottage back from the ocean. The beach is just a short (1 minute) walk away down the private road. The cottage has a great layout with the greatroom in front and the bedrooms in the back. The kitchen is modern with an open layout, ocean views from the sink, a breakfast bar and dining area that opens on to the deck. The living area has spectacular ocean views.

The master bedroom is in the back of the cottage with its' own private bath and walk-in tile shower. The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed. The second bedroom has a double-sized bed and the third bedroom has 2 sets of bunks with full twin sized mattresses that can comfortably sleep 4 people. The hall bath is tiled and has a tub/shower.

There is room for 3 cars to park under the cottage as well as space for additional vehicles in the driveway in front of the cottage. There is a utility room on the ground floor with a washer and dryer. There is also an outdoor shower with a large dressing area.

                        I think you will be pleased with Loon Court Cottage. Wonderful ocean views, few steps to the beach and a great street to be on. Kitchen has it all . Loved being able to take our lab with us. Unfortunate in our weeks stay 2 out of 7 days had sunshine. IT RAINED!! Had a great time checking out new places....all Federal areas were closed due to shut down.( Felt bad for tourists that came for that.) Found some sea glass, yeah!! Ventured into Creswell, N.C. and found the neatest old antebellum plantation(if you like history, a must see) Parking is excellent under the cottage . We have stayed many times on this street and love the area. You won't be disappointed with Loon Court.Cottage.Excellent correspondence with Anne . Have 1 suggestion: a gate at the top of the steps~~~keeps the little ones safe and your pet on the deck. Thanks much and would totally recommend to families with kids because you don't have to lug so much to the beach~~it's right there So funny to see deer , they cut through the yard. Then again, you go inland and you can see bears and bobcats! Enjoyed our stay and love knowing we can return to a pet friendly home!

                        Recommended for: Adventure seekers, families with young children, girls getaway, pet owners.

                        Owner response: Your review is very helpful and expands the possibilities of experiences e.g. seeing deer in he yard and finding sea glass on the beach and exploring historic areas. Your suggestion for a gate at the top of the steps is good and I will take that up with our maintenance crew. Thank you for your thoughts on your vacation at Loon Court cottage. Anne

                        Very cute, SMALL cottage--the kitchen & LR were fine for 4 of us, but the bedrooms were just barely big enough to walk around the bed, and we HAD to unpack our suitcases and put them in the closets--there was nowhere else for them to go. That was fine. But our companions' mattress sagged badly in the middle, and ours was so hard that I actually went on Amazon to see if I could order a mattress pad during our trip! (With the Labor Day holiday, that didn't work). I had to put my neoprene laptop bag under my hip, or toss and turn all night. With new mattresses (pillow top, please!) we would stay there again. The location was great, the beach was literally maybe 100 feet away at most, and the beach views out the kitchen window were gorgeous. (If I owned the place, I'd put in a second slider in the kitchen corner, above the heat register, and double the view. For a relatively cheap remodel, the owner could charge quite a bit more rent. It would pay for itself!). The kitchen had plenty of counter space and was FULLY stocked--it even had a crockpot and a blender (though the fridge door was rusted and icky). Please be aware that, like most beach properties, there is a full flight of stairs to get up to the front door. This wasn't a problem for us at all, but could be for some. And the "balcony" was about 2.5 feet wide with no roof overhang, so not exactly prime lounging-and-looking-at-the-water space. (I'd extend the roof and the balcony for my fantasy remodel. ;-)) One other thing--the owner was very nice, but not especially computer literate. She insisted on snail mailing the instructions, and we had to snail mail a check. Taking PayPal and using email would have made the process a LOT easier on our end, and probably hers, as well. We had a GREAT trip using this cottage as a home base--but if the mattress hasn't been replaced, you might want to bring along a mattress pad along with the sheets & towels.

                        Recommended for: Sightseeing, age 55+, families with young children, girls getaway, pet owners.

                        Owner response: We always like to receive good and helpful feedback from our guests at our beach cottage and our goal is to provide a comfortable and welcoming setting for a memorable vacation experience and at a reasonable price. To accomplish this we do the managing ourselves rather than use a booking agent. We use "snail mail" to receive payments rather than Paypal which requires a fee and we ask our guests to bring their linens rather than hire a linen service. On the other hand, for the bedding we have spared no expense and put in brand new Simmons BeautyRest, plush mattresses before the 2013 rental season. With the gorgeous view already of the beach and ocean from in and out of the cottage, we have not felt a need to add another sliding door or to extend the roof or porch out front. Zoning and setback issues would come into play and the cost of added construction would have to be passed on to our guests and would also require the cottage to be closed for construction during desirable rental season. As owners we are available by phone should any need arise by our guests and we have a good support system in our cleaning and maintenance staffs who live in the Nags Head area. Should a guest ever call regarding a WiFi issue I know where to go for help and the technical support with our communications provider has been prompt and helpful in resolving anything involving internet. Thanks again for the review./ Anne

                        What a comfortable, cozy beach home in a quiet neighborhood. Fantastic sandy beach right outside the door. Fully equipped for "vacation cooking." Short drive to lots of restaurants if you don't feel like eating in. Many wonderful, historic attractions nearby in case water play isn't your thing. Bring the family pet; they will love the place.

                        This house is cute, clean and great beach view. Only complaint is it desperately needs new living room furniture. The height makes it impossible for elderly people to get off the sofa without assistance. Recently having knee replacement, I could not use the sofa or love seat due to being to low and unable to sit or get up without assistance. Bed in master bedroom , boards squeak at every move like they are ready to break at any minute by just turning over.. Beds were comfortable but it certainly could be quieter. Great little vacation house for younger group , definitely not for anyone with physical disabilities.

                        Owner response: I’m sorry your stay was not as relaxing and enjoyable as I had hoped. My family and I try to make every guest as comfortable as possible. I was not aware you recently had knee surgery. I would have tried to better accommodate your needs beforehand to ensure you would have a pleasant stay. I'm glad to hear the beds were comfy. We just got new mattresses and I was hoping our guests would like them. Thank you for bringing the squeaky board to my attention. We have two wonderful locals that have been maintaining our cottage for years. They are available to address any maintenance issue we become aware of so that your comfort and relaxation is not compromised. While I hate to hear that any of my guests had anything less than a marvelous time at the beach, I’m always looking for ways to improve their vacation experience. Thank you for the feedback. -Anne

                        Perfect beach cottage for the small family who include their pets on their yearly vacation. For not being oceanfront, the view is almost as though you were... very nice! The private lane leading to the cottage is quaint and basically quiet. Being at the southern part of Nags Head was very nice and relaxing, and a short drive took us to all the shops, piers, and restaurants. We found the house to be fair- to- well equipped and usable, although some kitchen items are in need of replacement. Furniture and decor are basic, but just fine. Fresh and very clean smelling as well. We would definately consider this cottage again and suggest it to friends. Being able to bring ones pets (dogs) is a huge plus for us pet lovers. Only slight complaint that we could have is we believe the cleaning crew could pay closer attention to areas in need of a good dusting and the spare blankets in all the closets could use a washing. (but not a big problem as no place is perfect) The owner was easy to work with, as well, although a follow-up email was not sent by him as of yet. Overall great time!!!

                        Owner response: Thanks for the feedback, always helpful. I would like to comment though that our policy is not to send followup emails as we do not like to pester our guests, particularly when they are just returning from vacation, catching up on things, and getting back into the swing of things in their everyday lives. I do however always respond to guest comments and thank you notes sent directly to me that a guest initiates after a stay, but good to know that some guests would like for me to initiate the contact. Thanks. /john

                        We really enjoyed our stay. Quite and peaceful. The house was clean and beautifully located on the beach. Amazing morning sunrises! Located close to the end of South Nags Head, so driving to restaurants and stores is a must.

                        First all I have to say the owner is a class act. He was very prompt with responding to my emails, and very easy to work with. As for the property, the pictures do not do it any justice. Has very comfortable and nice living space, with all the ammenities you would need. It was awesome enjoying a coffee in the morning sitting on the deck over looking the ocean. And the beach there is some of the nicest stretches I've seen in OBX. Even for the 4th week it was never to crowded. I always had space to fish anytime of day. It was also nice all you have to do is walk out of the driveway and you are pretty much on the beach. No packing needed to drive to an access, the street has its own private one. I could go on and on about this place but stop reading and submit some dates, you will not be disappointed. All you need is your clothes, and some sheets and you're good to go. Thanks for the amazing two week stay and hope to be back, Scott

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About the owner: Our family has been coming down from the mountains of southwestern Pennsylvania to the Outer Banks for years because we have extended family living here. We fell in love with the Beach and particularly the Nags Head area. The sight and sounds of the Ocean drew us.

                      Why the Owner Chose Nags Head:
                      This cottage has the proximity of the beach and all the comforts of home. We see beautiful sunrises over the ocean and sunsets over the National Seashore . It is a great get-away.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      The location is great. It is in the residential area in South Nags Head. It is so close to the beach that you will feel that you are on the ocean. You will actually have all the benefits of oceanfront vacationing without the burdens.
