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.

About Sandra

We are a family of three who live and work here on the beautiful Outer Banks with our Bulldog Buster. We love to travel and enjoy meeting new people!

Sandra purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Sandra chose Northern Coast & Outer Banks

Why stay in a cookie cutter hotel room when you can stay in a a one of a kind beautifully restored apartment filled with unique art and surrounded by lush, tropical gardens in the perfect location for enjoying the sound or beach?

What makes this apartment unique

Walk to the sound...ride your bike to the beach...What could be better?

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment has it's own private entrance and is just like the pictures maybe even better. Little lights in the vines over the entrance to welcome you in the evenings and your own little private patio. It was just a delightful place to stay and it was very convenient to everything. Sandra is very sweet and very efficient - she will respond to your request very quickly and was just great to work with.

Great Get Away Home

  • 5 of 5

We love staying in homes rather than hotels and this one was a beauty. Your own private parking and entrance to the home. The home was like a home away from home. Nicely decorated with an artistic flair. When we arrived the owners texted to see if there was anything we needed. Home was close to everything but had a since of privacy. We loved it and would go back again!

Wonderful weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay with two owners who love their island and are full of Island information. We were looking for local favorites, not tourist traps, and they pointed to all the perfect locales. Thanks for making our anniversary one to remember..

Wonderful. Perfect. Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the experience, from booking to staying, was good. The Backyard apartment is very clean, quiet, well-equipped, and is located in a good centrally-located non-commercial area where "the locals" live. This is NOT a cookie-cutter clone beach place. It has originality, funky charm, and lots of personality. It is a short bike ride (bikes provided gratis by the hosts!) to a small beach on the sound. Sandra recommended three local restaurants. All were good. I felt right at home, and plan to return someday hopefully soon. Sandra and Carey are gracious hosts and made the experience very pleasant.
