When you book, let us know who will be staying in our house. We like to get to know you a bit, as this house is very much our home.
**NOTE: THE BUNK BEDS ARE NOT RATED FOR ADULTS. At least 2 people in a party of 8 should be children.**
- LOCATION: We're located in South Nags Head at MP 20. We'll give you the address when we receive your final payment. The map is accurate. We are 3 miles from Jennette's Pier (North) and 3 miles from Bodie Island Lighthouse (South).
- HOW MUCH? Use the detailed price calculator. Tax and fees (other than pet fee) are included in the price. Cleaning fee is $100. Pet fee is a flat $50 for up to two dogs. PAYMENTS/DEPOSIT? Payments are split into two installments.
- HOW FAR TO THE BEACH? Approximately two blocks from door to sand...under three minutes. We have a video of the walk to the beach to give you an idea of what the access is like. We're uniquely positioned directly across from the beach access point across the road. Please only use our bridge, as others are private property. Just FYI: Route 12 is quiet where we are, but children should be supervised when crossing it.
- DO I HAVE TO BRING MY OWN BED SHEETS? Yes, you must bring your own bed sheets and extra towels. Here are the linens we do provide: two bath towels in each bathroom, hand towels, kitchen towels, bathroom rugs, comforters/duvets, and plenty of pillows and extra blankets. If you don't want to bring your own, reasonably priced linen services that offer free pickup and delivery are available throughout the OBX.
- DO I HAVE TO BRING MY OWN TOILET PAPER & OTHER INCIDENTALS? Yes. However, we provide starter rolls of toilet paper and paper towels. You must provide all incidentals for yourselves (bathroom items, laundering items, and food). With that said, we recommend checking in and looking around before shopping for most items. Chances are you won't have to buy things like laundry soap or mustard...lots of items get left behind.
- DO YOU ALLOW PETS? Yes. Pets are a flat $50 fee. No more than two mild-mannered, house-trained dogs, please. No cats--we're allergic. CAN MY DOG WALK ON THE BEACH? Yes. Leashed pets are allowed on Nags Head beaches year round. Leashes must be no longer than 10 feet.
- LAYOUT: 4 bedroom, 2 bath. All bedrooms are the same size, and located in each corner of the house. Each pair of rooms shares a bathroom. DINING: Picnic-style dining table seats 6, and there are 3 bar stools. There is a screened porch and open deck on the back, plus a full deck across the front--including a crow's nest for ocean and sound views. (Be sure to do some stargazing from the crows nest. It's usually dark enough to see the Milky Way and the occasional meteor.)
- WHEN DO I CHECK IN AND CHECK OUT? You can arrive as early in the AM as you want on your designated check-in day. You must leave by 2PM on your check-out day. We don't do same-day turnovers.
- HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN I BRING? No more than 8. It's a small house. We don't think you'll be comfortable with more people than that. There are two queen bedrooms, two twins which can be pushed into a king, and the last room has twin bunk beds.
- DO YOU OFFER REFUNDS OR TRAVEL INSURANCE? Our rental agreement says that you must give 30 days notice to receive a full refund, but we understand that life happens. Inform us asap if you can't honor your reservation. We offer full refunds if a hurricane or other named storm ruins your vacation, or if your charter fishing trip is cancelled beyond your control. We do not offer refunds for rainy weather.
- NIGHTLIFE? Ready to party? This isn't the place. The closest bar is a mile and a half away from here, and South Nags Head can frequently feel isolated. This is a good place to read a book and fall asleep in the sun.
- ACCESSIBILITY: We do not have a ramp or elevator at this time. One must be able to navigate 12 steps in order to enter the house. The town maintains the beach access, which is a walkway connected by stairs on either side. There is a dune, but it is tough to navigate around the stairs depending on what the weather has done to the sand. Keep in mind that beach wheelchairs, strollers, and beach carts may not be able to easily access the beach from our access across the street.
- WHY HAVEN'T YOU ANSWERED MY MESSAGE?: It's not you, it's me. It's impossible to reply to everyone, but we try. If we didn't get back to you, it's because:
- You don't provide any information about yourselves (we do get what we believe to be spam, so please appear to be a real person)
- Your party is too large
- You are too young (min. of 25 yrs)
- You have too many pets. No more than 2 dogs, please.
- We have reason to believe our rental may not meet your needs. We suggest people go elsewhere if we think they have their heart set on a particular experience that our location doesn't provide.
- We are busy with our day jobs. The system give us 24 hours to respond before automatically deleting your request. If you see that the calendar is still open, send another request.
- I HAVE MORE QUESTIONS! Please ask. We try to always respond to questions about the house or the OBX. We all work hard for our vacation time, and we understand that you need your beach trip to be the best.
