I enjoy having a place that so many people love and become repeat renters. I try and keep my place updated, clean and the cottage that people want to come back too. I am always looking for ways to improve it so the the repeat renters can look forward to seeing what is new!
Katherine purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why Katherine chose Nags Head
The location is close to everything you need or want yet you feel like you are miles away from it all. It is a quiet, private street, with a private beach and private beach access. You can get away from the crowds and enjoy the beach all to yourself. There are no hotels in sight. Hospital is less than a mile away for any unexpected emergency!
What makes this Cottage unique
You are in walking distance to shopping and restaurants, yet you see no retail signs from the cottage. You are not looking into windows of the next door neighbor. You can sit on the bottom deck, sip a drink and watch your young kids play in the cul de sac. The traffic is very light since it is a dead end street. Or you can sit on the top deck and enjoy the views of the water and cottages. All bedrooms are equal in size so it is great for 4 or 8 friends, or 2 families or couples to equally share the expense.

A wonderful beach retreat!!
We absolutely loved our stay at The Big Cabana. The beach house was perfect and the decor is adorable. So many cute themed lamps!! We enjoyed watching the sunsets and sunrises from the top deck. Katherine is very friendly and accomodating! The location is perfect too! We were so close to the outlets, groccery stores and restaurants. When you want to go "beach it", you only have a short walk to get there. Definately looking forward to future visits. Thanks Katherine!
Amazing Family Vacation!!
Our family of five comes back to The Big Cabana each and every year and much like previous years had another fantastic week this time around. The beach is a very short walk and we took advantage of some great weather days playing in the sand with almost no one around us. We always make use of the hot tub to wind down after dining out at the numerous restaurants in close proximity to MP 14.5 like Tortugas Lie and Miller's on the sound. This year we took the kids to the Bodie and Hatteras Lighthouses and took the ferry on a day trip to Ocracoke. With the outlets two miles up, we popped in for some shopping and slide next door for some putt-putt action.
We found the cottage to be clean and equipped with everything we've come to expect over the years. Overall an excellent experience with the owner/property and an equally excellent location that we've come to expect year in, and year out. We look forward to 2019!!
Wonderful Week Away
I have nothing but positive feedback from our stay at The Big Cabana! My girlfriend and I rung in the New Year down here and had an incredible time. The cottage is in great condition inside and out, it's centrally located and it is a very short walk to your own private beach!!! It was a bit chilly as we visited in December, however, that allowed us to take full advantage of the jetted hot tub. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the top patio while looking out towards the beach. Katherine, the owner, was very accommodating and easy to work with. She made check in and check out a breeze, and the cottage could not have been cleaner. Again, I highly recommend The Big Cabana if you are planning a trip down to the OBX! We will certainly be back!
The owner was very good about getting back to me on simple things I needed to know.
The beach is right across the street on one side and all the food shopping is across the street going the other way. Loved my stay.
NO COMPLAINS...I will be going through VRBO again.
I would like to offer VRBO (or Kathrine the owner) to review the general maintenance of the property....nails coming out of the deck flooring (not fun to drag your foot across)...exchange out filters (the central air had to work longer to efficiently cool)...window and screen cleaning...PCV pipe leakage: a lot of water lost....dryer exhausted where sand gets caught in...understandably with all the properties VRBO has to oversee some things will (like the windows) are not high priority.
I can be of some help...call if VRBO or an owner is interested.
We shared this house with my parents. 7 of us did not feel cramped. The house fit our need perfect with a short walk to the ocean. We will definitely stay again!
Covered the very basics
This place was just fine. You get what you pay for. This relatively cheap house had perfectly fine fixtures, a good hot tub, great picnic tables for outdoor eating, and efficient space. It was, however, loud from car traffic, a little dirty, and did not have much in the kitchen. As advertised, the place does not come with towels or linens, but we were not expecting that there would only be one kitchen rag. This especially because on check-out you cannot leave anything in the dishwasher (i.e., we had to wash our morning dishes by hand so they were still left pretty wet when there was only one dish towel to dry them with). We had 5 adults and 2 kids staying here and there was only 1 big pot to hold the family-style food we were preparing. We made baked ziti one night and had to divide it up into two trays, which was no big deal, just a little surprising given the fact that it's a 4 bedroom home. As for the cleanliness, it was a little grimy around the edges like any well-loved beach house, but we did find two dead cockroaches making us a little paranoid about how many others there may be.
Again, you get what you pay for. It was a perfectly fine place to stay for the price, but next time, I'll probably pay more to be away for the traffic noise, have a properly staffed kitchen, and get the amenities of towels and linens.

Additional information about rental rates
As a friendly reminder, this is a no pet no smoking cottage and you must be 24 years of age to rent from me. I have my cottage professionally cleaned for each renter and do not have the prior renter be responsible for cleaning. Therefore there is a cleaning fee of 150.00 which covers the cleaning of the cottage and the hot tub. Unfortunately, this entire fee is required even if you do not use the hot tub as it has to be serviced and cleaned regularly. The refundable damage deposit of 300.00 is refunded as long as no damage occurs other than normal wear, there are no early check-ins or late check-outs and there is no excessive cleaning that needs to be done such as dirty dishes, addressing big spills on the carpet, or trash left outside the cottage that needs to be picked up. Also no parking in the yard is allowed. I accept checks and credit cards for payment and will be happy to work payment plans with you as well. Please don't hesitate to call or email with your questions 757-438-5067 or email@example.com I want this to be your best vacation ever so let me know how I can help. Besides the beach, fishing, shopping, and golf, there are also wild horse tours, lighthouses to visit, the aquarium, adventure park, and much more. For health concerns, my cottage is less than a mile from the only hospital on the island. There is also a lifeguard on the beach about a 1/2 block to the left. I try my best to keep the cottage updated and fresh and want everyone that stays there to have a wonderful time. If you are looking for a place to party hard, I would prefer you to find another cottage. If you are looking for a nice, cozy, fun place to stay - Look no further, as you have found it! It is perfect for 2 to 4 couples, friends, 2 small families or 1 big family. (friendly reminder-no pets) It is a place to make some memories that will last a lifetime!
