Bedrooms 3
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Jay's NestEgg is a great place for:

Summer Vacations - memories are made here.

Home School from the beach for best field trip ever.

Year round School track outs - get to know the beach all seasons of the year.

Short get-aways - the welcome mat is always out.

Hughes Retreat Unit #204 in Kill Devil Hills, built in 2005, is across the street from the beach. Easy public beach access is a short distance south of Hughes Retreat at Eighth Street. It is handicapped accessible with parking and a nice ramp over to the beach. Rent anything you need (including a beach wheelchair) nearby. Our condo is tastefully decorated for maximum comfort. Our balcony overlooks the pool so you can relax and still keep an eye on the mischief taking place in the pool. A fully equipped kitchen and a great grocery nearby will make meal preparation a snap. Don't want to cook? THE best restaurant on the beach is at the end of the driveway. The master bedroom has a king size bed and a private full bath. A second bedroom has a queen size bed and the third bedroom has a pyramid bunk (aka Kids at the Beach) A pyramid bunk has double bed on the bottom with a single above and a single trundle underneath. A second full bath is across from these two bedrooms. AND there's a queen size sleep sofa in the living room for anyone who wants to stay up all night. The bunk room has TV with attached DVD/VCR player (The owner left a VCR tape with 6 hours of vintage cartoons!) The other bedrooms have Cable TV and there's a third Cable TV with DVD player in the living area. Bedroom TVs are wall mounted. After all that 'hard' walking on the beach, an elevator will take you upstairs easily. Our awesome pool is lap worthy and also great for water walking. There is assigned covered parking with space for two cars and an additional assigned space across from the front of the building.

But, PLEASE, don't spend your vacation inside the condo! The owners will provide you with information for more activities than you'll have time for, so plan to come back again and again.

About Sara Singer

Hughes Retreat was finished in the spring of 2005 and Jim and Sara Singer are the original owners of Jay's NestEgg. Jim is a physical oceanographer (which is why this condo isn't oceanfront). He plans oceanographic research cruises and spends most of his time floating on some distant ocean, sea or gulf. Sara worked as a monitor for clinical trials but now takes care of 4 households, including this condo. She loves to spend time walking on the beach to collect shells that she uses in wreaths and inspiration for stained glass creations.

Sara Singer purchased this condo in 2005

Why Sara Singer chose Northern Coast & Outer Banks

As a young couple in graduate school, we spent a LOT of time on the Outer Banks. Jim's graduate research was a study of Oregon Inlet. His thesis predicted that one day the bridge would be mostly over land. Guess what, today it is mostly over land.

During our graduate school years, we spent a lot of time here in tents, trailers, less than nice motel rooms and some rentals that can't be described. We wanted a place back on the Outer Banks that was easy to get to, easy to live in and always welcoming us back.

We have walked beaches all over the world and our favorite beaches of all are right here. Coquina Beach across from the Bodie Island Lighthouse and the beach just south of Oregon Inlet on Pea Island are fabulous. We'll share them with you, but don't tell too many people cause we like them to stay uncrowded.

What makes this condo unique

Sara loves to begin the day watching the sun rise over the ocean with a great cup of coffee. Later, we enjoy climbing Jockey's Ridge to watch the sunset over the sound. In between we like to just walk the beach. From the beach directly in front of the condo, look south. It's 2 miles to the Nags Head Fishing Pier. Try and walk it at least once during your stay. Do it at low tide and collect a few shells along the way.

Great condo and location

  • 5 of 5

This is our eighth stay at this condo. Sara is so great to work with and has thought of everything. The unit is very clean and comfortable. The kitchen has most anything one would need to cook a meal or do some baking. Two grocery stores are very close. (One is right across Rt. 158.) If dining out is preferred, many of the best restaurants are nearby. We have stayed in Duck, and this location is so much more convenient to everything. We will be returning again next year and looking forward to it already!

Owner's Response: This couple has become some of my dearest friends, making great suggestions for the condo and letting me know when things need attention. I can always depend on them to give me an honest opinion when I'm considering making changes at the condo. I look forward to their week at the condo every year at this time.

We had a great time.

  • 5 of 5

Jay's is a great place to have a family vacation. Well maintained inside and out. The pool had a great mixture of sun and shade. They had everything for the beach in the storage from beach wagon, chairs and sand toys.

Great location in Kill Devil Hills for the entire family!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, my 10 month old daughter, my parents, and our two dogs all loved Jay's Nestegg! Everything was just as pictured from VRBO and extremely clean! The rental was close proximity to the beach and some great restaurants (our favorite being Kill Devil Grill which was at the end of driveway where the rental was located). We had a great week in the OBX and Jays Nestegg played a big part of that! We will def. be back!

Great central location and very clean. Walk to the beach. Pool is shaded in the morning and sunny in the afternoon. Closet is full of beach necessities. Only improvement would be more reliable internet access in the building.

Owner's Response: This was another great family in a summer of great families! As for the internet, the building is now served by two lines with 6 access points. The HOA provides this service and speed depends on the number of devices logged on. I normally tell guests that early morning is the best time to do essential things requiring the internet.

So many great things about this condo! Great location...easy walk to the beach, close to grocery store, good restaurants, Duck Donuts, 15 minutes to Tanger Outlets. Condo was very clean and has more than everything that you need. There is even a cart in the master bedroom closet that you can use to bring up your luggage. This owner has thought of everything! Sara was so great to deal with. Accessible at all times and easy to work with. She is a very kind and honest person, and we even had the pleasure of meeting her. I would rent from her again in a heartbeat.

Great KDH family condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a wonderful week at Jay's Nest Egg in June 2017. Great condo, great location. The elevator and the pool make this an ideal family condo. The walk to the beach is short and definitely manageable. The grocery and liquor store are just around the corner. The condo is comfortably appointed and we were at home and able to cook meals with all utensils at hand.
