1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom - Beach Retreat In Beautiful Nags Head, NC

The Backyard - Nags Head, NC. Located in the most desirable location in Nags Head, this beautiful, totally renovated one bedroom is just 1/4 mile from the award winning beaches of Nags Head and one block from the stunning Roanoke Sound. The Backyard is the ideal retreat for a vacationing couple.

We have it all!! Beach chairs! Fishing Gear! Coolers! Bikes! Just show up with your bathing suit and beach towels and get ready to have a blast!

Completely renovated, our beautiful apartment for two is a true home away from home featuring one bedroom with a Queen bed, 32” HD TV, sliding French doors, custom tiled floor to ceiling mirror, one of a kind art, exposed beam hardwood ceiling with recess lighting, and a sitting area perfect for reading. The dresser provides ample storage space for clothes, shoes, and more. Blinds throughout provide your choice of sunlight or privacy.

With beautiful Island decor featuring unique art from the owner’s personal collection, the living room has comfy couch a 32” HD TV and love seat. This is cooled with central air for your comfort as well as ceiling fans throughout.

The fully equipped kitchen has a, microwave, refrigerator, gas stove with retro hood and hand laid stone backsplash, and everything you could desire to cook, prepare and serve a gourmet feast, heat left-over’s from the great assortment of fabulous restaurants surrounding our property or grill your fresh catch on the gas BBQ grill just out on the deck. The dining nook, adjacent to the kitchen has seating for 2.

The bathroom features a tub and shower and a beautifully tiled one of a kind mirror. Also, no Outer Banks rental would be complete without the essential outdoor shower! (Shared with owners) Enjoy your hot water shower under the sun or stars while the aroma of confederate jasmine fills your senses. Linens and towels are provided – just bring your beach/pool towels.

After your long day at the beach come home and relax on your own backyard deck and enjoy the beautifully landscaped grounds with Koi pond and gardens throughout. Take a nap in the hammock under the shade of the live oak tree! There is also a beautiful sound side pool in the neighborhood that is perfect for relaxing after a long day at the beach that is available to our renters for a daily fee. Also within walking distance of our apartment is a neighborhood sound beach. Here, you can enjoy spectacular views and sunsets! Bring your beach chair and relax.

We will make you feel right at home at The Backyard. This is a downstairs unit. We live upstairs. If you are coming to the Outer Banks to party, shoot off fireworks, and generally make a lot of noise this is not the place for you!! We live in a neighborhood of working people who are not on vacation. We will do our best to respect your privacy and stay as quiet as possible upstairs – just keep in mind that 3 people live upstairs and the normal amount of noise should be expected.

If you are looking for a Motel 6 or Holiday Inn type accommodation - this is not for you. But if you are interested in living with the real people of the Outer Banks - this might just be perfect. Our family also enjoys relaxing outside in the yard and you will most likely see Cary working in the gardens or Buster (our English Bulldog) running around chasing his favorite soccer ball with our daughter in the evenings after work. We are a laid back, fun family and offer to share our beautiful property with you and we are available to answer any questions you may have about local restaurants, etc. Whatever it is – having lived here for over 30 years – we’ve either done it, or know someone who has!

Completely restored, updated and uniquely furnished, we have missed no detail inside or out. You’ll find a cozy, turn-key-ready home away from home with everything you need for day-to-day relaxation. The property is a smoke-free environment.

Please check out our calendar for availability.

Home sweet home.. easy to relax here

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we pulled into the drive, we knew that we were home. Every little detail has been covered by Sandy and Cary. We were so busy that we didn't get a chance to hang out with them much, but they had us covered from day 1 till we pulled out of the drive.. Sadly I might add.. A hotel is always the first option when going on a vacation.. Not anymore! Why would you book a room that's so impersonal and cold, when you can reserve a piece of comfort and tranquility in The Backyard. If you are considering a trip to the OBX you have to book your next stay here. We will be back and we will be booking here again. Thank you guys.. Thank you thank you thank you.

Great place, plenty of room for two.

  • 5 of 5

This basement apartment says "Nags Head" in every detail. The furniture is comfortable, we sleep well every night. The kitchen is spacious and well supplied. If you need anything just head upstairs and ask! The family (and the dog!) is friendly and accommodating. We'd stay again, fur sure!

Great place for a couple!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the location- close to the bay, Jockey Ridge State Park, & the ocean! We loved the bikes, fishing gear and full kitchen! Perfect for a couple who loves to cook!

Very clean and Great Host's

  • 5 of 5

Cary and Sandra are very accommodating. This is the first VRBO that we have ever stay at that the host were on site to help or to answer questions and they do not bother you at all. They were very quick in responding to ANYTHING we had questions about. They have fishing tackle, bicycles, grill, boogie boards, outdoor shower and other items available for use. The room is very clean and kitchen has just about anything you would need. I was impressed that there was even a French press for the coffee snob such as I am. The community pool is a short walk and we had it pretty much to ourselves. There is a small beach area on the sound close by that you can walk to and the ocean side beach is a really short drive and is very nice. As for the room itself, your eyes will never get bored with the various works of art. There are numerous good restaurants near by. We liked Fish Heads, Blue Moon and Slice Pizza. If you go up to the Kitty Hawk/Kill Devil Hill area I recommend The Food Dude (yes trust me) The neighborhood is pretty laid back and quiet. If I come back to Nags Head area I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
