About Ron Mann

My wife, Shannon, & I have been married for 25 years. We have one daughter, and a Shitzu named Sissy (my daughter named her that because that was the only sister she wanted). We are Bible believing Christians and we consider ourselves to be very blessed with all that God has given us.

Ron Mann purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Ron Mann chose South Nags Head

We chose South Nags Head because it is close to all of the restaurants, shops, and 'things to do', but it's not right in the heart of all the people that vacation on the Outer Banks. Our beach house is located on a private street with semi-private beach access available only to the guests of E. Oriental St (10 cottages). Both of us spent many summers as kids and young adults vacationing in Nags Head and always wanted a place of our own at the beach. South Nags Head is close to everything yet still quiet, peaceful, and relaxing. Also, waking up each morning to crashing waves and dolphins in the surf is a real plus for us!

What makes this cottage unique

Being right at the beach is spectacular! with just a few steps you are 'in the water'. The semi-private beach access means you can spread out and enjoy the beach with a game of volleyball or touch football without having to worry about encroaching on other people. The views here are amazing with the sunrise over the ocean and watching the dolphins cruise up and down the shoreline every morning. At night night there is nothing like going to sleep hearing only the waves crashing on the shore. It truly is very relaxing!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our recent stay at your lovely home in Nags Head. It was the perfect place for a girls' getaway and it even snowed while we were there!!

Thanks so much for making our time as pleasant as it could have been!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a lovely stay at this beach house. The house is impeccably decorated and everything that you might need is right there on-site. We enjoyed the bikes and beach toys as well as the outdoor shower. It is located on a small, dead end culdesac at the ocean, which is perfect for kids - no crossing streets. Beautiful views from the decks, and it is located on one of our very favorite beaches of the Outer Banks. Definitely get a permit and do a beach pit fire during your stay (available online via the fire department). The owner, Ron, is extremely helpful - checking in to make sure all is well and very timely in his responses. We definitely plan on returning! Thank you for providing the perfect house for our family getaway!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the very nice reveiw and we are so glad to hear that you were pleased with our home and were able to take advantage of all of the amenities that SandMann has to offer. We agree, the location and proximity to the beach could not be better. You are so right, it is a must to get a permit and have a bondfire on the beach. Even on a warm summer night, a fire on the beach is the perfect way to end a beautiful day! Thank you for taking such good care of our home and we hope you can stay with us again soon!

Cottage Gem steps from the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was everything I wanted and just as described! I found it to be very well-equipped to satisfy every need, especially nicely equipped with technology to assure continuous connection with the outside world if that is what you want. We were there to get away from much of that but still appreciated the Bluetooth sound bar continuously and TV on occasion.

The guestbook was very well done and left important information for easy change of the door lock combination and we concurred with the restaurant recommendations 100%.

The decks were so perfect and allowed for spending most time outside even when not at the beach. The beach is so close that it really did feel like the ocean was in our backyard.

Furnishings were very nice and comfortable; lighting was well placed and kitchen had all necessary items and more; and all bedding was attractive and sufficient. Roomy refrigerator and freezer made food storage easy. We had a problem with one Queen Mattress one as it was super-extra firm and most family members could not get comfortable there but we were able to move people around.

The owner was completely accessible and responsive.

I would go back in a second. Just wonderful!

Thanks for a great vacation!

A gem near National Seahore

  • 5 of 5

This gem is set in the southern part of Nags Head very close to the National Seashore. It is close enough to shops and restuarants, yet in a quiet friendly neighborhood with quiet beaches. The beach was really close and very nice. I was there with my husband, daughter, her husband, a 2 year old and 2 month old baby. The house was close enough that my daughter could sit on the deck with the baby and watch me play with my grandson on the shore. She was even able to bring him to the beach as Ron provided umbrellas, beach chairs ( really nice ones not cheesy ones), buckets and shovels for grandson, and bikes. The house was well stocked, decorated nicely and most important to was very clean. The open concept allowed my grandson to play on the deck while I prepared dinner. I could watch him through the sliding glass doors with screens. Ron was super great responding to all my texts and updates very quickly. He even kept us updated about the Tropical Storm. I would recommend this place for families. My only suggestion is for Ron to add a few more hangers to closets. Thanks so much for sharing your home.😎🌊

Owner's Response: Thank you for the awesome review! We are so glad that you found our home met or even exceeded your expectations. When it comes to beach homes, the location is what i'ts all about, being that close to waves but also not having all of the beach goers right underneath you is a plus. We are also that you were able to take advantage of all of the amenities that our home offers; the bikes, beach chairs, toys for the kids, etc. Thank you for taking such great care of our home and we hope you can join us again soon. PS- we have added more hangers in the closets; thanks for the suggestion.
