About Christine and Mitchell Lively

We moved to the Outer Banks in 1985. Our rental is on the ground floor; we live upstairs. Mitch runs the art gallery and frame shop, and during the winter I teach second grade. We have two children who enjoyed growing up in Nags Head. Their summers were filled with daily time at the beach. We have fond memories of Sunday afternoons on the beach with neighbors and friends. Both children grew to love the water, with our son becoming an avid surfer. We enjoy walks on the beach with our dogs as we hunt for sea glass. As a family who likes to read, Mitch and I are spend time on the deck with a good book, an early morning cup of coffe, or an evening glass of wine. After a year of teaching, I am always ready to spend time at the beach with a good read! We also enjoy riding our bikes or walking in the neighborhood.

Why Christine and Mitchell Lively chose Nags Head

We chose to offer a rental in our neighborhood because it is a quiet, family-friendly area. Families and couples can come here and be as busy or as laid back as fits their preferences. We especially like being centrally located on the Outer Banks.

What makes this apartment unique

When on vacation, we prefer time to relax and enjoy family and friends away from the hectic every day pace. For us this includes clean, comfortable accommodations at an affordable price. That is what you will find in our rental. The 2-minute walk to the beach makes it easy to be on the beach at any time of the day with no parking hassles. We are within walking distance of coffee shops, restaurants, galleries, a bait shop and grocery store. Being centrally located makes it an easy drive to many wonderful attractions such as the Wright Brothers Memorial, the new historical landmark Jennette's Pier, Jockey's Ridge State Park, a soundside beach, Nags Head Woods, and to Manteo to visit the historic waterfront or attend the outdoor drama 'The Lost Colony' as well as shopping areas. Being between the highways offers a safe place for walking, bike riding, or running. We have two fenced patio areas offering a quiet, private place for relaxing. The YMCA is only half a mile from our home. With our guest passes, you and your family will have full access to all the amenities offered there. Since we live here, we can answer questions about a local services you may need or desire including where to find local produce as great prices and directions to the freshest seafood!

Ideal Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at a lot of rental properties. I take my time and look (often for hours) through multiple web listings to find the right location, price, amenities for our family. When I found this listing, I was so excited -- the reviews and photos looked like a winner! After a 2-day drive, we were ready to settle in to our weeklong beach rental.

First impression: Very clean, well-decorated, larger than photos with a friendly, open floor plan. Then you meet Christine and Mitch (the owners) and they are THE nicest people. They have thought of everything. There are beach towels, beach chairs, beach toys. (The beach itself is a few minutes in a straight line, down one block, and over one dune). There are copious clean towels, exttra blankets, books, games, pamphlets and brochures about the area. And the kitchen has everything you could possibly need - including a crock pot, mixer, blender, the works! And tucked just off off one the bedrooms is a sweet little play area with toys, books and games for the littles.

It truly feels like a home away from home. It is an ideal family getaway. We played board games on the one rainy day we had. Any minor issue or question and Christine and Mitch are on it. They respect your privacy and make themselves available to you as much or as little as you need. It is so comfortable, affordable, dog-friendly (our pooch was right at home), family-friendly, and a great location with truly nice owners upstairs. I have never stayed in such a well-appointed rental. They have everything you need - you just show up with your groceries!

We will most definitely stay here again if we should return to Nags Head. What a gem!

Great House & Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our two young daughters (3 1/2 and 4 months) and small dog and had a fabulous time. There were all kinds of toys and a small play area devoted to the kids. The owners provided us with pretty much everything we needed on the property and the property itself was updated and only a few minute walk to the beach (5 min walk). Its also a 3 minute walk to the best ice cream place in the OBX - The Surfin Spoon. So be aware, you may gain some weight, because you will go there daily.

It’s very cute place, very spacious, and well stocked! The owners were wonderful. They were there to greet us while our 4-month was screaming, offered to help bring our stuff in, and they were there whenever we needed something. They really try their best to make your stay special!

There is really only one thing to note. There is no bathtub for bathing the kids. We made due with the shower and the kitchen sink (for our newborn), but its just something to note. Not by any means a dealbreaker.

We would stay there again and would recommend it to others.

We loved staying in this beach rental. From the moment we booked to the minute we left Christine and Mitchell were very attentive. The rental was fully stocked with everything we needed and more. It was like being home. It was two minutes walk to the beach, close to loads of restaurants. We look forward to returning and staying here again.

Great place!! Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

The owners are really nice and accommodating. The apartment is a little bigger than it appears in the pictures, very comfortable, well stocked. Short walk to the beach, convenient to many restaurants and activities. We've been going to the Outer Banks for years, can't wait to return to this gem!
