Excellent Vacation Rental, Great Location, with Caring and Reliable Owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Granny Jan's with our family while on the Outer Banks for a wedding. Right from the start we loved it! We weren't sure a Friday check-in would be a available, and were delighted to know it would not be a problem. Granny Jan's is a lovely home in a great location, a pleasant neighborhood, and close walk to the beach. The house is clean and well cared for, with an amazing deck and crow's nest. It is well supplied with cooking/eating needs, great wi-fi, TVs, comfortable furniture, deck chairs, and grill. The owner was easily contacted when we had some trouble with keys, and she was pleasant and helpful. We would recommend this property as an excellent vacation rental with caring and reliable owners!

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Granny Jan's over spring break with our grandchildren. We visited all four lighthouses and flew kites at Jockeys Ridge. The location is great for all the great places to visit. We plan on going back. Owners were great to work with. Highly recommended!

It's the BEST!

  • 5 of 5

I've been here two years in a row with my friends from college. Us 4 girls have loved our time at Granny Jan's! It's close to the beach and so cozy. The owners focus above and beyond to make your trip special and worry free. Seriously, we'd stay forever. You can't go wrong!

Great Home, Perfect Location, Very Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay during the marathon weekend at "Granny Jan's"! The Owner was very easy to work with, the home is comfortable, clean, with plenty of amenities. Our kids loved the hammock downstairs, it is convenient to the beach all everything you need in the Nags Head area.

First, I want to send a special thanks to Jan and Mike for providing a great place to unwind, relax and rejuvenate!! They were excellent to work with beginning with making the reservation to sadly having to leave the beach.

The kitchen was well equipped with all the amenities of home. The beds were comfortable providing a sound and restful sleep. The hammock and picnic table under the house provided a great way to relax and enjoy the ocean breeze. The house was clean and welcoming when we arrived setting the pace for us to enjoy our stay at the beach. Great location, near the beach and close to many restaurants. If you are looking for a great and relaxing place to stay, give Jan and Mike a call you will not be disappointed at Granny-Jan's Get-A-Way!
