About the Property
Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Our “beach box”, as called on the Outer Banks, is a uniquely cute cottage large enough to accommodate a good sized family, yet small enough to give the simplicity and flavor of the area. It is located at the 10.5 Milepost just 2 neighborhood streets from the beach b/n the Beach Road and the 'bypass'. The beach access has space for approx 12 cars should you have more items than you can carry.
We are dog friendly (upon approval) with just a few rules..... your dog must be on a vet prescribed flea and tick preventative, not get on the furniture or beds (even the little ones), and be clean and dry before re-entering the cottage after time on the beach. The cottage is set up in the carport to accommodate a doggy bath, and dry-time.
Resembling a tiered wedding cake, the cottage is two floors. The second floor comprises the master bedroom with a king sized bed and a full bath with shower. The windows on all four walls provide a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the summer breezes while sleeping. The main floor offers 2 additional bedrooms, one with 2 twin beds, and the other with 2 sets of bunks. Both share a full bath with tub.
Also on the main floor is an open space family room, dining area, and kitchen. The new TimberTech deck wraps two sides of the cottage providing a great place to relax and read, eat meals at the outdoor table for 6, or just enjoy your morning coffee and afternoon sun.
Most of the OBX beach boxes are above ground level. Ours is no different, so you will enjoy the hammock swing under the cottage, as well as covered space for two cars, and the laundry/storage room for convenience. But perhaps one of the best parts of your stay will be the private outdoor shower and dressing area. Everyone who tries it for the first time never returns inside to shower again! You will leave our cottage wishing you had one at home!
I attempt to add a personal touch to your rental experience unlike a rental agency. When making an inquiry about our beach cottage, please be kind enough to include a short note and/or provide some info about your family. Looking forward to hearing from you! Thanks ~ Carol

- One of the unique features of this beach cottage is the outdoor shower and dressing area constructed for enjoying the breezes with total privacy. After trying it, rarely do guests shower indoors! Also to be enjoyed is the double hammock swing under the cottage. Guests enjoy the short walk to the grocery store and eateries in the neighborhood. Once arriving, throw your car keys away! ...moreless

The cottage is just a block from the walking/running path that parallels the beach, a great opportunity for those who want a leisurely stroll or run. This paved path stretches from the south end of Nags Head to the north end of Kill Devil Hills. A focus of this area are the beautiful beaches and relaxed family life without the neon and noise of large resort areas.
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: With a career in sales as well as being a mom of 4 kids who grew up vacationing and working summers on the OBX, I enjoy nothing more than time at the beach cottage, whether it's for a weekend or a week. 'T-shirts and flip flops' are the attire for a guaranteed fun and relaxing stay in Nags Head. I love sharing the cottage with folks new to the Outer Banks, so others can experience the same enjoyments of the area as we do.
Why the Owner Chose Nags Head, NC, USA:
Having grown up vacationing on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, I wanted to enjoy the small town beach atmosphere as a permanent part of my life. As you come over the bridge you can't help but take a deep breath and leave all stresses behind. A walk on the beach alongside the waves, or along the beach road is a get-away all your own. But there is plenty to do to make memories with family and friends when you get back!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
While staying at our simple beach cottage, enjoy the simplicity of walking to the grocery store and nearby shops, swinging in the hammock swing, enjoying dinner on the deck, and relishing the very private outdoor shower. If you want to venture out, you don't need to go far to enjoy various water sports, fishing, the Wright Museum, miniature golfing, and the quaint town of Manteo with the NC's Aquarium and antique shopping. For a day trip, enjoy a drive down Rte 12 to Hatteras and its historic lighthouse. The drive and views are breathtaking!
