  • Perfect Beach Cottage

    "I was first attracted to this listing by the Friday-Friday rental (plus I love the name of the place!), since most Nags Head rentals are Saturday-Saturday. But once I arrived at Tranquil Times, I discovered it was the perfect beach cottage for our extended family of 6 adults and two children. The place is clean and well-stocked with kitchen utensils and bath linens. It's a short walk to the beach and a short drive to fishing piers and restaurants, and the location is quiet and away from the traffic on 158. It took only a few minutes to drive to Brodie Lighthouse and Oregon Inlet. We loved having wireless access, the outdoor shower stall, and washer and dryer. We had 3 cars and a trailer, and all fit into the driveway and carport beneath the house so we didn't have to park on the street. All in all, we did not have one complaint about anything -- other than the arrival of Hurricane Arthur on Thursday, July 3! None of us were keen on riding out the storm, so we cut short our stay by one day and left before Arthur arrived. We hated to leave this wonderful place! I would highly recommend Tranquil Times to anyone wanting to rent a beach house in South Nags Head."

  • October visit to Nags Head

    "Enjoyed the visit to Nags Head.. Frist time booking through VRBO, but were very satisfied. Owner was very accommodating. The condo was at a good location to the pier, shops, and restaurants. We enjoyed ocean views and the sound. We had been a bit concerned about the main highway crossing to access the beach, but it wasn't a problem. During busy vacation season I could see it may be more of a task to cross. The fee as advertised was accurate without extras added...we did not find that true with all VRBO that we inquired about. And definitely appreciated that. The condo met our needs and had a pleasant atmosphere. Vaccum, washer and dryer were a big plus. Had a great week...would like to book that fantastic weather also our next visit....Just never know what the weather will be there...but we love that area. Thanks to the owner for allowing us to vacation there....Would love to be there right now."

  • Great Visit.

    "We were really happy with the house. Being our first time to the OBX & renting a house we had no idea what to expect. My only complaint was the creaky floors in the back 1/2 of the house. The kitchen & master bath room creaked horribly(which woke the baby every time, as she slept in the master with us) Also not being told we had to pay EXTRA to use the community pool was disappointing. It wasn't a huge fee but still another expense we didn't expect. Other wise we had a great week."

    "Last year we celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary in Cottage Number 4. We loved it so much that we reserved it again for our 40th! Couldn't wish for a sweeter place to stay for the occasion. We'll be back!!!"
