About Mike Olson

Mike and Renee Olson. They met in OBX during there college summer breaks 1987 - 1993. Mike was a Ocean Rescue Lifeguard for Kill Devil Hills and Nags Head Ocean Rescue. Renee worked at Capt'n Franks and Birthday Suits. They have two children Meganne and Max. They enjoy the Outer Banks and know it very well. This house has it all. Views of the sunset off the front screen porch are just as nice as the view of the sunrise off the rear deck. The price is very reasonable for all you get.

Mike Olson purchased this house in 2008

Why Mike Olson chose Nags Head

Ocean front offers it all. South Nags Head is away from all the heavy traffic and the beach is less crowded.

What makes this house unique

SO MUCH TO DO! Sitting in the hot tub over looking the ocean is incredible. Or grabbing your fish rod and walking down the beach to the pier. Or taking a break from the beach and relaxing in the hammock at the pool. This house has it all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a beautiful week at the end of September this year... We came in just after a hurricane and rainy/cloudy/cool weather had been forecast for our week, but we had 5 lovely, warm and sunny days! The house (OBX Life) is nicely appointed with nice bedrooms and the family space is nicely laid out. We liked the pool too! Resort Realty is fantastic as well - we had an issue with the phone in the house, and they looked into and resolved it very promptly. Thanks for a great week.

Absolutely loved!

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely beautiful property right on the beach and beside Fishheads at the pier. They open Easter. We enjoyed being in the jacuzzi on the back deck looking out at the ocean. The beds and furniture are very nice, unlike some beach rentals. They have kept the place up to date and fresh. It was great when my parents stopped by that they could enjoy the view of the beach fully on the back deck since they have aches and pains at their age. We completely, absolutely adored this rental. Crazy 70 degree weather this weekend. We enjoyed watching the sun rise from the master bedroom without even getting out of bed. You can also see the beautiful moon rise!

Comfortable stay, perfect with some minor improvements

  • 4 of 5

Overall loved the layout of the home, the amenities, and location. With a little TLC could be perfect.

The Pros: home owners super easy to communicate with, layout of the house was wonderful (not too many steps), loved all the beach chairs, bikes, and corn hole provided. Beds were comfy, house a great location to the pier, the ice maker was awesome, tons of parking room

Cons: poison oak everywhere - could use some cleaning up especially with kids around, screen door is sticky and by mid day about 20 flies in the house, hot tub and pool need cleaned, only Half the jets worked in the hot tub, bring your own big pan! Not much to cook on. There's no dish drainer.

Overall it was comfy and clean, we would stay again and appreciated the serenity and getting to see dolphins

We enjoyed another great visit to OBX LIFE! The house has all you need to relax and unwind. We could sit on the back deck for days watching the porpoises swim in the surf. We can not wait until out next visit!!

Okay

  • 3 of 5

Comfortable, but something must be done about the sliding doors facing the ocean. Screen door was missing and the glass door does not seal. This explains the wood screw with 5 fly swatters. The owner also needs to have the housekeeper clean the front windows as they were very dirty. We cleaned them ourselves so we could enjoy the view.

Ahh... Time at the Ocean

  • 5 of 5

It was a very nice house. It is old but is well maintained and nicely decorated. We enjoyed waking up to the sound of the ocean and a beautiful sunrise!

Nearest Point of Interest
Outer Banks Pier

South Nags Head offers uncrowded beaches and away from the heavy traffic. You are just feet away from the beach with your own private walkway. Fish Heads Bar is a great place to have a drink and listen to beach music in the evening. Or grab a rod and reel and fish off the pier. Both are only 300 feet away.
