About Mike Olson

Meet the Olsons! During their breaks from college, both headed to the OBX for the summer - Renee worked in local retail and the famous Captain Franks, while Mike was a lifeguard for the Kill Devil Hills Lifeguard Beach Service (LBS) and Nags Head Ocean Rescue team. Their love of the beach brought them together, and their enthusiasm for the beach life continues to this day. When not spending time at the beach, Mike and Renee live in Chesterfield, VA with their two children, Meganne and Max, along with their two furry children, dogs Bo and Boomer. OBX I and OBX II are standout properties in the area. OBX I is a 5-bedroom oceanfront property with unobstructed views of the ocean and direct, private access to the beach. It is a large, relaxed and accommodating house with the feel of a traditional beach cottage. OBX II is a good family-sized property with 3 bedrooms and a pool. Situated nearer to Nags Head itself, many of the popular amenities (the beach, Jeanette’s Pier, restaurants) are all within walking distance. The kids love it! Both houses are reasonably priced and offer great value for the premium locations that they are in. Come and create some great memories in the Outer Banks! "everyday's different at the beach"

Mike Olson purchased this House in 2008

Why Mike Olson chose Nags Head

Our guest are in love with the house because we try and keep the house a traditional beach cottage feel. Sitting on the back porch watching the sun rise or the porpoises play in the surf. 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. "traditional beach front cottage!!"

                                                              Beautiful view, warm comfortable cottage

                                                              Lisa W.

                                                              We very much enjoyed our stay. The house has a cozy layout with amazing views from the back deck. We had 8 people and there was plenty of room for more! The water is steps away the deck. We will definitely go back.

                                                              OBX Life was a perfect fit for our family trip this year. Had a homey feel to it.

                                                              Susan H.

                                                              Was in the process of being painted so outside was a little rough. Overall a nice place for vacationing with kids.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thanks for staying at our house. We are sorry about the painting we have been trying to get this completed since December and the weather has not been on our side!

                                                              Great view of ocean

                                                              Mary F.

                                                              The house sits high enough to look out over the ocean and beach from the house/porch. It’s really nice. We have stayed at other homes in the OBX that sit back too far to see the ocean from the porch.....although listed as oceanfront). Sitting on the porch with coffee or in the hottub at night with the ocean out front is great. It’s close walking distance to the pier (just a few houses away). There is a restaurant/bar on the pier, although it had not opened for the season yet, so that was a bummer for us. The house is close ....within a mile or 2...to Sam & Omies restaurant which is a favorite for us. This restaurant was open, so we enjoyed that and watched some March madness games there. The kitchen had plenty of pots and pans, dishes. The appliances all worked fine. Make sure to pack your own Tupperware, trash bags, paper products. There was a new Kuerig coffee pot, new toaster and new small coffee pot (apartment size).

                                                              We had bad weather so we played a lot of board games. We bought board games and decks of cards to play. So pack those items as well.

                                                              We had plenty, plenty of space, but there were only 4 of us. More could have stayed and felt comfy. It was comfortable in the sitting area to chill. The kitchen table is good for puzzles. Pack your puzzle. The washer and dryer, although not pretty, work good, in fact we used them on delicate because the washer was powerful. Pack detergent. The house has good bones and is a nice place. You can tell the house has been used for making a lot of memories. The house is being painted on the outside. The house could use a little TLC on the inside (paint, mattresses mostly). It didn’t affect our family in a negative way cuz we are pretty laid back, and it feels like staying in a family’s home. We have never been to OBX this early... mid March so we were unaware of how many businesses are closed for the season, but still enjoyed hang gliding, lots of fish at Wanchese, inside animated sports at Turfs Up on rainy days, Duck donuts ( the maple and bacon is the best), walk along the beach, the sand dunes, the wild horses and quality family time.

                                                              Great stay!!

                                                              It was a great stay and we had everything we needed!!! Can’t wait to come back!

                                                              Perfect relaxation!

                                                              OBX Life 1 is the perfect place to be for a relaxed stay at the beach. The house is comfortable and a perfect size to accommodate a small group of family and friends. The dining table has a glorious ocean view and the spacious living room invites togetherness, with plenty of space to enjoy provided diversions, including a large television and a wide assortment of puzzles and games. The kitchen is fully equipped, with plenty of counter space for meal preparation. With five bedrooma and three full bathrooms, there is plenty of space for an extended stay in perfect comfort. We so enjoy this home that we return year after year for a week or two.

                                                              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.
