About John Vollino
My wife, Laura Lee Garrett, had been vacationing on the Outer Banks of North Carolina since she was an infant and introduced me, John Vollino, to the area when we were dating. We purchased our first vacation cottage a year after we were married in 1991 and purchase the Sea Spray Cottage Court in 2007. The cottages were built in 1950; there are four in total (only 2 are currently available for vacation rentals).
John Vollino purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why John Vollino chose Nags Head
The cottages were slated for demolition and sale of the bare lots. We purchased the cottage court to save them from the wrecking ball. Our intent is to preserve and revitalize a little piece of old Nags Head so that we and others can enjoy a bit of history and vacation in a comfortable and uncomplicated way.
What makes this Cottage unique
At the Sea Spray Cottages you will not have to vacation with 25 of your closest friends and family. Given the size of the cottages, you can enjoy your vacation with your immediate family or with a few close friends at a very affordable price. There is plenty to do in Nags Head including enjoying the beach, which is across the street. Cottage #2 has a large comfortable front porch were you can sit, enjoy your favorite beverage and watch the world go by.

Cozy & Close to Beach
I booked this rental for my father & cousin, but didn’t stay here myself. Based on their opinions, the property was a nice little cottage that was close to things to do. When my cousin couldn’t find the property, I called John, the owner, and he knew right away that they were most likely on the north end of the road. He said to have them call him so he could talk them through finding the place. I don’t even answer my phone for numbers I know, so props to John for answering my call and being so helpful. ;) He even offered to meet them there & unlock the door for them. After this positive experience, I am thinking about when I can take my family on a vacation to the outer banks & use this rental. ***Although it is listed in the cottage description that towels & sheets are not included, I overlooked it before booking. It was mentioned in the follow-up e-mails, so it wasn’t a surprise at arrival. I sent some with my dad & cousin, but they can also be rented through John’s cleaning company.***
Awesome Dog Friendly Vacation Rental
Our stay in Cottage #2 was exactly the experience we were hoping to have at the Outer Banks. The cottage was clean and cozy. The owner's were very helpful leading up to our vacation. We can not thank them enough. I plan to stay in these lovely cottages again when we visit NC. Thank you for a great experience!
Clean, close to beach, very comfortable
The cottage was perfect!! My husband and I enjoyed a relaxing week. The cottage was clean and well equipped with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. We were just a short walk from the beach access. The front porch was great for relaxing with a good book. The gated front porch and the small fenced in yard were perfect for allowing our dog a little freedom off the leash while we were outside. The owner (John) was very responsive to emails. He recommended Ocean Boulevard Bistro for our anniversary dinner. It was perfect...wonderful food and great service! We look forward to another visit to Sea Spray.
Perfect for our short weekend stay
Pros: Clean, simple, close to the beach access.
Con: Sheets and towels not included?? This to me seems like a fundamental hospitality offering.
Glad you and your group enjoyed the cottage.
With regard to sheets and towels, actually the industry standard in our area is that they are NOT provided, but available for a separate fee. All of the big rental companies does so. Granted, we are not one of those, but in an effort to stay abreast with the new and developing local customs and practices, my cleaner has stepped into this roll and DOES rent both sheets and towels to our guest for a separate (nominal) fee, in the event that the guest does not want to bring their own (which many still prefer to do).
I send my cleaner's contact information to our guests along with the lock box information and our restaurant recommendations. I, in fact, I spoke with her just yesterday and she confirmed that that process is going well. I am sorry that you did not get in on that with her or maybe you did and just think that sheets and towels should be included.
Alternatively, there are many companies at the beach the rent most everything, including sheets and towels. If, asked, I always provide a list of companies that a guest can contact.
Comfy and cozy
John takes excellent care of his cottages. The cottage was clean, comfortable, and cozy. I love that it is so close to the beach. I will definitely stay in Sea Spray cottages again.
