Milepost 17.5. Fancy Free is the perfect getaway for those who are looking for a vacation home on the ocean. This home has been remodeled with new kitchen, bathrooms and new sleeping arrangements. There are three private master suites with brand new king beds for 2014 – all with different types of luxury mattresses designed to help anyone get a good nice sleep as they listen to the sounds of the ocean just outside your door. Ever desire to try a memory foam bed – Fancy Free is your opportunity. Two of the suites have ocean views and one has an oversized Jacuzzi tub.
New in 2015 - Living room and Loft furniture has been replaced and updated. We are excited about our new look!
There are fantastic views from the great room loft and two of the master bedrooms. There are two furnished oceanfront decks for dining or relaxing outside. The two-story great room has a 30-foot glass wall that provides ample sunlight and unrestricted ocean views from the upper deck. The hot tub is located on the main deck with easy access from the ocean.
Fancy Free is perfect year round home to relax, read a book, play a game, shoot some pool, or watch a movie from our video library on the large screen TV. 3 CATVs, 3 DVDs, and 3 VCRs. The 'kids' room has its own TV/VCR/DVD complete with children's videos and a game closet.
Fancy Free is also perfect for people with limited mobility. The main level includes the living room, dining room, new kitchen, master suite and additional bedroom. There is also direct access to the outside deck and walkway to the beach from the main level. There are stairs, with hand rails, leading to the main entrance but once inside the home, all the comforts of home await without the need for stair climbing.
The great room on the main level is open to the loft. In the loft you will find a game table, pool table and two more master suites. Fancy Free has all the comforts of home and more. It also has two separate gathering areas for everyone to allow the adults and the children to find their own ‘play space’ yet still have the opportunity for the family time that everyone will remember long after their stay at the beach.
There is a walkway from the deck to the ocean to enable easy access to the ocean.

Year Purchased: 1994
About the owner: We currently live in Annandale, VA. Since I was in college I have always enjoyed real estate. In 1994 we decided it was time for a vacation rental so we could enjoy the beach with our kids. Over the years we created many memories. We especially enjoy the beach in the off season. Just last year, everyone returned and we introduced the grand kids to the beach too. Our extended family grew so much we had to rent Foot Loose next door to us so we would all have beds! Our vacation home is equipped with everything I wanted in a vacation rental so I know you will find everything you need.
We loved having this vacation rental that we have purchased two additional properties over the years. One at Deep Creek Lake in Maryland (#79196) in 1999 and then in 2013 we purchased a property at Lake Anna in Central Virginia (#459560). We invite you to enjoy our other homes as well. We were not creative in naming them so they are Fancy Free II and Fancy Free III!
Why the Owner Chose Nags Head: We chose this property because of the open layout, fantastic views and two separate gathering areas in the home. I love my friends and family but there are times I do not want to be part of all the 'action' so being able find a place to relax and not have to be in a bedroom was important to me. This house gives one the opportunity to be part of all the activity or find a quiet corner to read.
The Unique Benefits at this House: To me what is so unique about our home is that while we are ocean front and can watch the dolphins, we are also high enough that we can watch some spectacular sunsets out of the upstairs master bedroom windows. You can also see the sunset from the Jacuzzi tub, which is a wonderful place to relax. (Note: The Jacuzzi tub is separate from the hot tub which is located on the main deck.)
