About Britt Brumley

This cottage is a great place to create wonderful family memories and traditions. Whenever our family visits the cottage we have two traditions that are a must. The first is taking our morning stroll along the seaside to Nags Head Pier and back before breakfast. The second is to never depart without having our fresh seafood dinner send off. We have two of the best locally caught fresh seafood shops to choose from in the area, they are Austin's Seafood at MP 11.5 and Billy's Seafood just a short drive down Collington Road at MP 8.

We love sharing our time at our beach house with family and friends. This house allows us an opportunity to relax and connect with one another while building new memories year after year. We hope the same is possible for each of our guests.

Britt Brumley purchased this house in 1996

Why Britt Brumley chose Northern Coast & Outer Banks

You will find this beach house to be unlike most. We are not in the rental market just for the income. Our cottage is a great gathering place to enjoy all that the Outer Banks has to offer. We treat our guests like family and provide a peaceful place to kick back and relax while making wonderful lifetime memories.

What makes this house unique

Off Shore Expectations is centrally located to all the best that the Outer Banks has to offer. Great food, entertainment, family friendly beaches and a wide variety of activities. There is a wonderful park nearby and several great swimming and recreation locations on the sound side. You can't miss taking a walk up Jockey's Ridge to fly kites or watch the sunset over the sound.

Beautiful clean house with lots of amenities

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this property for our 10 year anniversary celebration. The accommodations were so comfortable, the property well taken care of, and the location PERFECT! We visited many of the local restaurants including Sugar Creek, Black Pelican, Kelly's, Tortugas...just to name a few. All very close by and easy to find with a GPS. The beach is a short walk from the house and sitting on the deck listening to the waves was so relaxing!

Lovely Luxury at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

This house is enormous and has a little something for everyone. A master suite on the main living area made things easier for my mother who has some mobility issues. The second floor had tons of bedroom and bathroom space. It was clean, had wifi and the well appointed kitchen made it possible for me to cook Thanksgiving dinner for seven people. It was close to the beach and close to shopping and grocery stores. Love it!

The place was huge, clean, well furnished and well decorated. Wasn't missing a thing. My favorite part was all the different decks to relax on. Can't wait to go back!

A wonderful family friendly place to stay. Everything was very well thought out from the Legos, beach toys and games to the fully stocked kitchen. The house itself was spotlessly clean and the beds were very comfortable. Beach access was close and covenient. I would recommend this rental to anyone!!

I didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this property so much. It's a wonderful place for a large family gathering.

The bedrooms and beds are pleasant and comfy. The great room/kitchen/dining/sunroom are all connected for large groups and visiting. Large windows make the rooms bright and cheery.

Decorating is inviting.

The downstairs playroom/ping pong/plenty of toys/plenty of beach toys keeps children delighted.

The beach is a block away.

You will certainly enjoy this property.

Extended Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

We were blown over by how much detail the owner put into the property. She had Pack-N-Plays in every closet, tons of pillows, blankets and every thing you could possibly need in a kitchen for cooking. The stove, refrigerator and dishwasher were updated. It was very "child friendly" with several gate guards available for small children. The property was very clean and beautifully decorated with comfortable mattresses on each bed. Two of the seven bedrooms opened up to a beautiful 2nd floor deck where the insect free breezes would blow from the ocean into the bedrooms. There were literally no insects to be found anywhere. There was a gaming room with toys, Ping Pong, Legos for the children and board games for the adults. There were plenty of chairs and tables to game on. The laundry room was so convenient with updated laundry facilities. The beach was right across the street and we brought a small wagon for the little ones. The outdoor shower facility was much appreciated to remove sand. The driveway is very spacious. The location was near a fantastic goofy golf course and go-carts, unlimited shopping off the main road and fantastic restaraurants where you can pick up steamed Cagun Shrimp and Alaskan King Crab Legs for dinner, when you don't want to cook, which was our favorite! A Big Dune was only a mile away where, if you climb it, you think you are in the middle of Saudia Arabia, so bring water. The Wright Brothers Memorial is close as well, if you enjoy history. We have to honestly say it was the best and most relaxing vacation we have ever taken with our children and grandchildren, some of whom we have not seen in over a year, because they live in Asia. Thank You Britt!
