Nags Head cottage description

If you are looking for a unique vacation opportunity where you do not have to invite 25 of your closest friends and family members, Sea Spray Cottages is the place for you. The location is ideal, Mile Post 11.7, just south of Nags Head Pier and just north of Snow Bird's Soft Serve Ice Cream; you will be centrally located to many attractions.

Built in 1950, the cottages provide guests with a feel of what vacation was like on the Outer Banks during a less complicated era. The cottages are equipt with modern conveniences that will make your visit relaxing and enjoyable. Linens and towels not provided. Check in is at 3 and check out is at 10:00.

Our family use to vacation in this unit so it enjoys many personal touches that result from our living there for 2 years. The open floor plan is unique and lends itself to relaxed and enjoyable stay. We have also opened this cottage up to nightly stays, even during the summer, which is also unique to the outerbanks.

If you find that the dates you are looking for are booked try our other cottages located on the grounds or located in south Nags Head, see the link to owners website below in the lower left side of this page.

                The house was so cute! And there was plenty of room for everyone. Everything was very comfortable and a lot bigger than it seemed in the pictures! Everyone had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the entire stay! And the fact that it was one story made it easily accessible for both of my grandparents.

                We loved staying in this cozy cottage. The listing was accurate. The cottage was clean and well-maintained. Everything was thoughtfully provided. The cottage was warm, comfortable and great for a family gathering. Having the eat in kitchen was the highlight of our stay. Cooking and sharing meals together after long walks on the beach was an experience we will not soon forget.

                We really liked the cottage. It was close to everything. The decorations were cute and appropriate. The only issue that we had were the beds weren't very comfortable. We ended up sleeping in a chair and on the couch. Loved that we could bring the dog and that there was a fenced in area for him. It was very convenient.

                Owner response: I am dissapointed that you could not find a bed that was comfortable to you. My first complaint about the beds in Cottage #1. My family and I stayed there for 2 years and found the beds to be comfortable. The queen is pillow-topped, but not too soft. But alas, judging the comfort of a bed is about as subjective as it gets; it is commonly referred to in the industry as the Goldielox factor. I am sorry that it was a problem for you.

                This property was exactly as described. Every thing worked and was in excellent condition when we arrived and left. The location was perfect for us, close to everything. I would definately recommend this property to friends.

                Very pleasantly surprised how close this was to the beach. While it's not directly on the beach, so you don't get the views, it's practically right there. Just have to walk across the street. Very quaint inside, with good quality appliances and furniture. Floor was a little chilly this early in Spring, but that's not really a knock on the place. Hot water took a little while to heat up in the faucets, but the shower was good and warm. Cable and WiFi were in good working order. Pots, pans, cooking utensils, silverware, cups, wine glasses, mugs, plates, bowls, everything you would need in a home away from home. Pet friendly! All in all, a great place to stay with all the amenities a family of four to six would need. Will definitely be looking to stay again in the future!

                We've visited the Outer Banks for twenty-five years and found this property the most satisfying yet. It is what I wish the Outer Banks in an ideal world could remain. It's small and charming rather than multi-story and luxury-packed. The location across from easy access to the beach is ideal, and the traffic, at least in March, is relatively sparse. The cottage itself is lovely. It has simple wooden floors, bright colors, and every kitchen accessory necessary; the owners obviously remembered every single item they've always wanted when they stay at the beach. The television and dvd were perfect, and we never had any trouble with reception. Perhaps having only one bathroom might be a problem for some groups, but for a couple or a small family it's fine; also, incidentally, the hot water was instant and wonderful. We especially appreciated having a fenced-in yard for our dog, a quite large area that intelligently uses the design of the four-cottage complex to allow quite a bit of space for pets. Finally, despite its simplicity, the cottage is very clean and well-maintained. Overall, we couldn't have chosen a better destination for our trip, and we hope to return.

                I had stayed at cottage 2 previously. Staying at cottage 1 was just as pleasant. The bed was comfortable. It was fairly hot and humid and the AC kept the house cool. I would recommend to family and friends. I'm not rating with 5 stars as the DVD player would not play movies.

                Owner response: Thanks for the heads-up on the dvd player. I will check it out to see what is up. Its not old, probably either the wires are not in the correct settings or the tv was not in the right mode. Had that issue in another cottage; player was fine, the mode to play was wrong, not the usual one. Have to admit, we are more about creating enjoyable, relaxing, and comfortable spaces. Electronics is not one of our fortes, but that is probably evident by our minimalism in that regard.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: My wife had been vacationing on the Outer Banks of North Carolina since she was an infant and introduced me to the area when we were dating. We purchased our first vacation cottage a year after we were married in 1991 and purchase the Sea Spray Cottage Court in 2007. The cottages were built in 1950; there are four in total.

              Why the Owner Chose Nags Head:
              The cottages were slated for demolition and sale of the bare lots. We purchased the cottage court to save them from the wrecking ball. Our intent is to preserve and revitalize a little piece of old Nags Head so that we and others can enjoy a bit of history and vacation in a comfortable and uncomplicated way.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              At the Sea Spray Cottages you will not have to vacation with 25 of your closest friends and family. Given the size of the cottages, you can enjoy your vacation with your immediate family or with a few close friends at a very affordable price. There is plenty to do in Nags Head including enjoying the beach, which is across the street. Cottage #1 has a large comfortable front porch were you can sit, enjoy your favorite beverage and watch the world go by.
