Space 1,100 sq. ft.

Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

4 bdrm 2 bath: 2 queens, 2 twins, & twin bunks. Family friendly. 2 dogs max.

Before booking, give us some brief info about who will be staying in our house. We like to get to know you a bit before we confirm your reservation, as this house is very much our home.

**Note that at least 2 people in a party of 8 should be children. The bunk beds are not rated for adults**



- 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 pretty accurate. We're 3 miles from Jennette's Pier (to the North) and 3 miles from Bodie Island Lighthouse (to the South).

- HOW MUCH? Use the detailed price calculator. Tax is included in your price. The cleaning fee is $100. The 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. There are no stairs, boardwalk, or parking lot to access the beach...just a medium-sized dune. However, one can drive a car across the street to the beach access and pull up right next to the dune if necessary...but you can't park there.

- 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 sometimes 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.

About The Owner

We live and work in Virginia, and do so in Nags Head whenever we can. When we can't be here, we enjoy sharing our home with others. Your payments are used for home improvements.

We hope that, over time, our OBX house reflects our interests and philosophies. This is very much our home, and we love being here. Respect it like you would your own home.

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why The Owner chose Nags Head

We love South Nags Head. It's quiet and secluded, the beaches are clean, and there is easy access to restaurants, bars, and shopping. Our house is close enough to the beach that you won't mind the walk. The Outer Banks has a small town's quiet and people are friendly. Don't forget to wave to folks, and be mindful of everyone's desire for peace and quiet. If you need to get away from your fellow vacationers, take a half-hour's walk South on the beach; the houses disappear and the beach becomes secluded parkland.

What makes this house unique

Ocean and sound views. Dark skies at night. Plenty of room underneath the house to: wash off the sand in the outdoor shower; wash your car; clean your fish; grill out; store outdoor toys; relax on the porch swing; or have a beer at the picnic table. There's also a crows nest, a front deck, and two porches on the back.

Strandhaus adopted the stretch of beach that you'll be relaxing on. Help us keep it clean!

Nice House and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The house is nicely decorated and very clean. It's well furnished and equipped with all that you need in a home away from home. Everything in the house is in good working order and pretty new , e.g. flat screen TV, WiFi, microwave, washer/dryer, etc.

The location is great. It's on a quiet side street with a pleasant two minute walk to the beach. From the house there is a good ocean view. Grocery stores and restaurants are less than 10 mins away.

The owner was easy to work with and organized. The driving directions, instructions to obtain the key to and using the appliances were easy to follow.

Fantastic Off-Season Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We live at another beach, and so we wanted to visit Nags Head in the off-season to see all of the "tourist" attractions without so many people around. We went sand sledding at Jockey's Ridge, saw the lighthouses, visited the restaurants featured on Food Network's Diners Drive In's and Dives, took our sons to the the Grave Digger (monster truck) museum, did some brewery tours (definitely check out Weeping Radish Farm Brewery), saw Kitty Hawk, and did lots of other fun things. The house is in a great location, clean, and had everything we needed for a week's stay. Our boys also loved the swing under the house, and had a great time flying paper airplanes off of the widow's walk... they are still talking about it. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us!

This home was absolutely perfect for our family gathering. Everything was very neat and clean. All of the instructions that were sent prior to our arrival was spot on. The location was just what we were looking for. We were within walking distance to the beach, yet far enough away from all of the tourist traffic to really relax. I would most definitely use this property for future vacations to Nags Head.

Perfect beach house just a 3 minute walk to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great stay at this lovely home. Everything was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked and there were all the necessary condiments in the fridge which we appreciated! Most the beds were pretty comfortable (one of the queens seemed a little old). The walk to the beach was so easy! We had 3 little kids with us and lots of stuff, but the short walk was totally doable. The owner was so awesome to work with! They answered any questions we had promptly and were kind and accommodating. We had a great stay and would definitely consider staying again!

Far enough south to be secluded and quiet, but still a short drive to everything you need. Check out: Wright Brothers' Memorial, Jockey's Ridge State Park, Bodie Island Lighthouse, piers, and great food nearby. Take a short drive to Manteo for a dog-friendly, walkable town with lots of history, shopping, food, and museum. Go for a day trip to Hatteras, or take the ferry to Okacroke and back.

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning fee $100
Pet Fee $50

*Note: Pet fee is $50. Two dogs MAX. No cats; we're allergic.

We factor taxes into the rates you see. There's nothing worse than getting to the checkout and discovering the thing you wanted is going to cost more than you expected. Because of that, we try to make the pricing as simple as possible.

For us, this is more home and less rental property. We don't offer special rates just to fill up, and we sometimes want peak season times for ourselves. Feel free to inquire despite what the calendar shows, as (for the outside viewer) it does not differentiate between rentals and time we've blocked for ourselves. Last-minute rentals are welcome.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
