This 500 square foot cottage offers an open floor plan with a full kitchen bathroom, washer/dryer, and a large room that serves as a bedroom, living and dining area. The cottage is nestled in the back of our property (2.5 acres), so there's lots of privacy, yet we are close if you need anything. Wireless internet is available and a Smart TV with DVD player (no cable). If you have a Amazon Fire Stick, Hulu, etc., you are welcome to plug it into the TV. Linens and bath towels are provided, and you will be expected to clean the cottage before you leave. It has vinyl and hardwood floors, so cleaning will be quick and easy. Or, you may agree to a $50 cleaning fee, and simply walk away! It's your choice. Cleaning checklist and cleaning information below.
Kid and pet friendly! Renters are expected to clean up after pets outside.
Outside, enjoy an outdoor grill and picnic table.

This rental is 15 minutes from the beaches of Nags Head, a fun bike ride to the sound, and minutes from quaint downtown Manteo, which offers shopping, coffee shops, breweries, a movie theater, restaurants, and historical sites (Elizabeth II). It is also a bike ride/few minute car ride to the Lost Colony.
There is no cleaning fee automatically charged. (If I were a guest, I’d prefer to clean myself and save the money, so I’m making this option available to you.) Cleaning supplies are provided so guests can clean themselves. A checklist is provided in the cottage and below. If you prefer the host to clean, please let me know in advance and $50 will be kept of your security deposit.
The host will launder used sheets and towels upon checkout. Please put them in the laundry basket provided.
(You may clean yourself, or I will clean for $50 out of your deposit - your choice! Please let me know in advance if you want me to clean, so I can have it ready for the next folks!)

Make the house look like somewhere you’d be happy vacationing.
If any furniture was moved, replace to original positions (futon up, etc.)
If you would like to leave food/condiments in the refrigerator (not leftovers), or household items, I’d rather see things used than thrown away!
Take trash and recycling to the cans by the main house. Hosts will take to the road on trash day.
If you allowed your pet on the futon, please wash the gray cover and put back in futon
Outside - dump charcoal if you grilled (designated pit to right of cottage), pick up pet poop, cigarette butts in designated receptacle.
*Guests have commented that the washer takes a while. If washing the futon blanket, please start that first. If you are in a pinch for time, it’s fine to leave it in the dryer - please let me know so I can put away.
