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 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!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Nags Head, so much history and natural beauty. The house was the perfect location with three boys under 5. We always felt safe and comfortable in the house and the beds were very comfortable and rooms were all a decent size. The bathrooms were a little small, but we made it work! Ron was great to work with and knew if anything was needed that he would be quick to respond. Overall, the house and location were great and the street it was on felt like a little community:). Hope to be back next year!

We would love to have you stay with us again and would also like to know what we can do to get the fifth star next time. Thanks again for taking the time to give us a good review and we hope to have you back soon.

Great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just stayed at Sandmann at the beginning of June! This was our first trip to the Outerbanks and we had a great time. The house was very spacious and comfortable with awesome views of the ocean. We especially enjoyed the large outdoor deck and crow's nest. We hope to come back again next year!

The house was spotless, comfortable and had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

There's something so relaxing hearing the waves crashing in the early morning before the birds even start singing. South Nags Head is the perfect location. We wanted quiet but access to shopping, restaurants and activities. The home was spotless and beautifully decorated. All the beds were comfortable. The beach was steps away. Aside from the cool weather, we couldn't have asked for a better week.

Owner's Response: We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed our home and your stay in South Nags Head. We are vacationers ourselves and strive to make our home clean and comfortable with lots of amenities and beach items to use during your stay; from the beach toys for the little ones to the beach chairs, boogie boards, bikes, corn hole, etc. for the entire family. We want you feel at home where the only thing you need to think about is "what's for dinner"; which, by the way is only minutes away! Thanks for taking great care of our home and we hope you can join us again very soon. Check out our other property VRBO #908644 recently purchased and newly renovated for 2017!

Perfect house for newcomers to OBX

  • 5 of 5

We left OBX less than 24 hours ago and i miss it already. Sandmann was the PERFECT spot to call home for our 4 day introduction to OBX. We are a family of 4, but the house could have easily accommodated another couple or small family without it feeling cramped. My children (4.5 and 2.5 years old) LOVED the bunk beds. It is a struggle to get the younger one to stay in his bed at home, but at Sandmann, he would retreat to his top bunk to "relax" on the rare occasion we weren't out and napped/slept with no issues. The proximity to the beach is AMAZING! This allowed us to easily move between the house and beach when our northeastern skin had all the sun it could take after no sun for 6 months! We also liked that the house was outside of town, but close enough that a drive to dinner or fun wasn't a daunting idea. Ron was great to communicate with, quick to respond and very clear. We will be back to OBX and will look to stay at Sandmann. Thank you!

Great house, perfect location, very responsive owner

  • 5 of 5

Just finished a 3 day, 3 night stay at Sand Mann. The house was in great shape upon arrival, very clean. Can accommodate 9-10 people with no issue. The third level deck has great views and the house is about 20 seconds from the beach. The owner was very quick and responsive when I needed a question answered. The area was very quiet, although, being March, all of Nags Head was quiet. The house is a about a 10 minute drive from restaurants, groceries, and bars. It was an excellent trip and we are looking at a trip for next year already.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to leave us a great review. Because we are VRBO owners, we don't spend any money advertising online or to be managed by a rental company. We rely solely on our reviews, which is the best way for a prospective guest to read first hand what to expect when staying with us. Your review means a lot to us and we are very pleased that you enjoyed our home and all of it's amenities. South Nags Head is the perfect spot, being out of the crowds and the traffic; yet, only 10-15 minutes from plenty of shopping, restaurants and activities. We hope you can joinus again soon!
