About The Owner

Single Dad with three teenage daughters.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Nags Head

We vacationed at Nags Head every summer and it was now or never on buying a Beach House.While I hadn't won the lottery and therefore could not buy oceanfront, I was incredibly lucky to find this one. I spent a year looking and this was the one house that was everything we were looking for. It is one of the few with clear views and close proximity to the beach. It still looks and feels new and has everything we need to relax whatever the weather may be. We love this section of the beach because of everything that is close by and the beach itself is one the best stretches of beach down here with a good natural surfbreak.

What makes this house unique

There is enough room for me, and my girls and their guests not to trip over each other. I can hang out on the upper level while they have the lower two. No better place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or an afternoon cocktail than the upper deck.

Great house and a very helpful owner!

  • 5 of 5

Came down for a long weekend. House had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Pool was perfect for the kids, hot tub was great for the adults, and the view of the ocean was perfect for relaxing . The owner was extremely nice, attentive and helpful in planning our stay. Hope to stay again sometime.

My best friend and I, with families, spent a long weekend at The Pilot House while we were in town to run in the Flying Pirate Half Marathon. The house was perfect! Just one block off the beach with every amenity you could ask for! The pool table and hot tub were the hits for the weekend! Can't wait to stay again!

Pilot House

  • 5 of 5

There were two families staying at this cottage for the week. We had other family members staying down the street, so it was a "reunion" for all of us to get together in one place. We love this cottage! The owner was very nice and accommodating. He was very helpful and attentive to details. The cottage was clean, comfortable, well maintained and well stocked with everything you would need. The location was great! Loved the pool! We would rent this cottage again! We would give this cottage a star rating of more than 5!

Had the pleasure of staying at the Pilot House in February 2014. What a great home, clean, great location, it's like staying in your own home. Everything was perfect, anything you could possibly need is in the home. The owner is the most pleasant man I have ever dealt with when renting. Could not have asked for a better experience and will definitely return! Love the Outer Banks!!!!
