About The Owner

Shirley, along with her husband Allen had this cottage built back in 1980-both as a family vacation site and as an investment. She and her family loved the nature, beauty and the unique privacy that South Nags Head offers. It is the perfect site for true beach combers and for launching off to Rodanthe, Hatteras, Okracoke, etc.-yet close to the restaurants and shops in Manteo and Nags Head. She lost Allen about 10 years ago but has maintained this cottage as a family vacation rental property. It is value priced.

The Owner purchased this house in 1980

Perfect cottage close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful and relaxing vacation here and would definitely return! The house had plenty of space for our family of four and our little dog. Loved the porches on both the front and back of the house. Perfect proximity to the beach.

Perfect vacation place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Alright, Where do i start describing the wonderful vacation we all had.. Maybe from the start. We had a great communication going weeks before our stay, owner's daughter was at the place to go through some of the details 15 mins earlier than we planned, a great display of southern hospitality whilst the tour. Had questions that were answered at the location and after via texts. The location was good. Beach was very much accessible, few minutes walk which we enjoyed every morning. Its also few mins away to the 'commercial' aspect of entertainment for kids, so less crowd where we were at the same time, handle the needs of the kids. If the area had better internet provider, it would have helped us with some offsite work however kids would have been glued to their electronic devices so its a curse/blessing in a way. Its nothing the owners can do, but note that in case you were planning to work remote. In all the vacation 'rental' home had all the characteristics we needed and we had splendid time. The house is tastefully decorated and all accommodations were superb.

Great location! Perfect Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using the Home Away app. Everything went perfect. Excellent renters. They live close and met us at the home. Excellent communication prior to arrival, during, and after. It was a perfect home for our family of 4 and a dog. The home would be fine for more people too. Perfect location, nice neighborhood, and great place to walk, run, or ride bikes. Close enough to stores and restaurants but far enough from the congestion. Definitely would stay here again. Loved everything about our stay!

Fun week!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this perfect location! Only steps from the beach on a nice quiet street where my kids rode their bikes every day. Nice, clean house and owners were very friendly. Couldn’t have been any better:)
