                        This is the perfect family vacation home. In a nice quiet area plenty of open space on the beach. This home have a very welcoming feel and the owners were awesome. The home is well maintained and has everything you will need for a comfortable stay. We will be returning next year any i`m sure many after that. Thank you so much to the Mushill`s for their hospitality.

                        This house was great. We had two families and the bedroom and sunroom on one floor and the two bedrooms on the 2nd floor worked out great. Kitchen is well furnished, no need to bring your own pots or pans. Close to beach access - with a 3 yr old, 18 mnth old & 9 week old, we had no trouble getting to the access. Close to all the tourist stuff, but far enough away that it was quiet-very convenient location (we loved Jockey's Ridge, flew kites there two days in a row, Wright Brothers Monument is a must, and the aquarium in Manteo is pretty neat too). Amenities such as TV and DVD players were great. House was very clean, and the owners are wonderful to work with! We will definately repeat this house the next time we head to the OBX!!

                        Recommended for: Adventure seekers, families with young children, sightseeing, tourists without a car, families with teenagers.

                        Owner response: Thank you for the great review and we are so happy a great time was had by all. Young families with childre are such a pleasure to rent too & we look forward to your return to Mushill's Shell ;=)

                        A terrific week was had by all - owners are terrific folks and very accommodating and helpful with any/all issues, of which there were few. Home is in spotless condition and in terrific location regarding the beach and commercial entities. We are headed back in September and already are counting the days!

                        We had a wonderful time at the "Shell." The house was all it was advertised to be and then some. We had a great time just sitting around the living room one night laughing and telling tall tales. We all had a place to sit and relax comfortably - all 12 of us! We would all go back again given the chance.

                        We have the best guest, over the years many have become our best friends and are like family. They share the love of the OBX as well as their love of staying at the Mushill's Shell with us and take care of it as though it was their own. We look forward to seeing them year after year.

                        We have stayed at this lovely house for two years. Brenda is so nice and has made us feel so welcome in their beach home. From the upstairs bedroom you have a view of the ocean and this house has plenty of sleeping space. We look forward to coming to this house every year and hate to leave after we get there. I would highly recommend this house to you it is very nice and well kept. Cheryl Carter

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1997

                      About the owner: Navy brought us to VA & NC in 1971 from Bethalto, IL. We fell in love w/the area & have been here ever since, except for 2 over seas assignments in Egypt & Japan. We both retired in 20133 & handle the cottage ourselves. When we returned from Japan we bought a home close to the cottage & our son's family who lives in Norfolk, our daughter lives in Atlanta.

                      Why the Owner Chose Nags Head:
                      We had been staying in this area at a friend's cottage for years, knew it was family area, that was quiet, private, but also close to everything we need.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Being close enough to just take a casual walk on the beach, enjoying the local area & being away from the hussle of the city and work. The only business in our area are the OBX Pier w/the Fish Heads Bar & Grill, a 1/4 mile down the beach, & the fire station!
