FEEL FREE TO CALL THE OWNER, Ernie Brown at 804-221-1324 if you have any questions. You can reach me from 9am-9pm est. 7 DAYS A WEEK!

WE HAVE TWO IDENTICAL 8br HOUSES, SIDE-BY-SIDE. You could book both and sleep 36.

Welcome to Oceanfront living at its Best! Centrally located in Nags Head, this beautiful and spacious beach front, 8 bedroom home formerly and presently known as Cabana I or Cabana II or even Cabana, will be perfect for your family group of up to 18 persons. Elevator to all floors is standard! Our home is well appointed with deluxe upgrades like 10' vaulted ceilings on the upper level, extra wide staircases, and a separate HVAC system for perfect climate control on each floor! All baths have full custom ceramic tile, and solid surface vanity tops!

Be sure to click the video linkl!

Clarification on our cancellation policy. It is better than 95% of property managers! We allow a full cancellation for the first 30 days, and after that it is on a sliding scale. Also if you choose to buy optional travel insurance you will be nearly fully protected if you need to cancel. (VRBO and Homeaway sell it)

The big news is we've just added an amazing 360 degree full circle water slide on this pool, so for the kids it's like Water Country USA in your backyard!! Kids are drawn to the slide like a magnet, and often they are seen on the slide within minutes of their arrival. There are only 3 other known water slides on all of the obx!

Note our video was taken before this house was painted yellow! Also the motel nearby has been demolished and 9 upscale homes like ours are to be built.

With direct access right on the beach, you can be swimming in the ocean in just a minute or two! (or sunbathing on the pristine and very wide sandy beach).

We've included one pic taken on a sunny afternoon about 1pm on June 27 showing a typical beach guests in peak season, on the beach right in front of our house. The pic was taken from our beach steps looking to the south! You can see the Nags Head pier in the distance! You'll likely never be near a large crowd of folks on the beach at Cabana! July 4 could be more populated.

Our awesome home is located near milepost 10 on the beach road. It is super convenient to shops of all kinds, a nice sized factory outlet, tons of great restaurants, Food Lion and Harris Teeter groceries, the YMCA, golf courses, Jockey's Ridge, the Wright Bros. Memorial, Kmart, Lowes, Pizza Hut, TJ Max, and you name it! Plus a full Outlet Mall with Talbots, Bass Shoes, and lots more! Oregon Inlet with deep sea charters, and Hatteras Island are about 10 miles to the south.

There is a nice sized private 13'x 25' swimming pool right out the back door, enclosed within your own 6' tall privacy fenced, stain painted concrete pool deck. There is a private hot tub for 6 and between mid-April and early Oct, the pool can be heated, if you desire for an additional fee. (generally not needed in summer months) Pool and Hot Tub open about April 15 and close about Oct 1. Chaise lounges are provided around the pool, though you should bring beach chairs if you want them when going ocean side.

You will have your own private deck perfectly located on top of the dune just a few steps from the ocean, which is perfect for small groups to lounge and for meals, drinks, or even intimate evenings!

There is a full width deck across the rear upper floor of our home which overlooks the ocean, and it makes for amazing ocean views! It's directly accessed from the Great room.

The upper floor features a fully equipped and complete modern kitchen, bar top and 5 bar stools, and twin oak dining tables with seating for 20 including the bar, all overlooking the ocean! All this includes really nice hardwood floors for natural beauty and easy cleanup. The massive great room incorporates the ceramic tiled kitchen, hardwood dining area and a large but comfy, carpeted living room with giant 'L' shaped sofa plus added seating. Built in fixtures, custom bookcases, TV, Surround Sound, and DVD are standard. High chair is provided.

Overlooking this area is the ship's watch area, which provides a desk for the serious student or guest doing paperwork or just browsing the internet. WiFi is standard, and best on upper floors.

Finishing off the upper floor is the quite large master suite. This deluxe suite features a king sized bed, additional seating, and a grand master bath with shower and Jacuzzi tub.

The middle floor includes four nice sized and well appointed master suites.There are two king masters on this level and two queen masters on this level. One of the queen masters is handicap friendly with a handicap shower. Two of the suites have glass sliding doors and direct views out onto the dune/ocean. Sea breezes from the oceanfront are nearly always present, especially through those sliding glass doors when open! The washer, dryer and ironing board are located on this level.

Our ground floor includes a super sized game room (18 x 20), with pool table, game table for 4, Playstation '2' (bring your games), sofa, wet bar, refrigerator, TV, DVD/CD player, sliding glass doors leading to pool and beach, 3 bedrooms (2 pyramid bunks, 2 twins), and 2 full baths. One bedroom on this level is a private suite.

Bed linens are provided. Bring your own beach and bath towels. This is a smoke free home!

Up to 2 dogs are permitted with the payment of the Dog fee. No cats are permitted.

Here is a summary of the bedrooms: 3 king suits, 2 queen suites, two bedrooms with a pyramid bunks sleeping 3 each, and one bedroom with two twin beds. Sleeps 18 total.

Our home features lots of ceiling fans, especially in the great room and in most bedrooms, 8 TV's, multiple DVD players, game table for 4, and a full sized pool table, gas fireplace, gas grill for cooking outside, indoor Jacuzzi Tub, and so much more !

Our home has an elevator to all floors to accommodate the handicapped and those with special needs, but does not meet all ada requirements. That is why it is "handicap friendly". For example there is a 3" bump up at the front door, so you'll need to bring a transition there to fully ride in. One shower is fully handicap with the seat.

If luxury, comfort, convenience, and access to the ocean are important to you, our 8 bedroom oceanfront estate may be just perfect for your family!

Wishing to you and yours, a great vacation at our house in beautiful Nags Head! We urge you to consider reserving your week now, before they're gone! We sell out all peak weeks every year!!!!

Note: (We do not rent partial weeks. All rentals are Sat- Sat. Checkin is 4pm, checkout is 10am. We do not rent to non-family or student groups or persons under 25, ever!) :)

Happy Vacationing!!!!

The house was nice, but it is ridiculous not to have some basic amenities

  • 3 of 5

Should have towels, soap, toilet paper, etc. for people arriving by plane, it is very difficult to bring towels and beach towels. At least provide what a basic motel would provide - soap, toilet paper, etc. I have stayed in a lot of beach houses and condos, and never stayed in one where I had to bring or buy everything but sheets. The incremental cost of those items added to the management/custodial fee can’t be that much more. House was nice in a great location. Everything worked but the front door lock. outdoor faucet handle needs to be replaced.

Owner's Response: This was a great guest. In fact upon leaving she wrote me saying, "we had a great week - especially when it got warmer! Jan" I think she is just unaware of the obx way - that is guests traditionally bring or buy locally everything consumable, such as paper goods, soap, shampoo, food, etc. Towels are optional, as many guests like bringing their own. This is the obx way and generally guests love the overall experience! Well in advance of vacation weeks we even send a list of "things to bring" so our guests can be well prepared. I'm glad she had a great time and enjoyed herself!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Yes we enjoyed our stay. The pool had a lot of sand in it when we arrived and the second or third step on the outside staircase was loose. But it's right on the beach and we really enjoyed that. The house was well furnished. Some of the stools seemed to take a long time for the tank to fill but maybe that's normal and the sink in the kitchen was a little slow. The bottom floor had some smell to it, maybe just musty. Top floor was great for our whole family and a beautiful view! Lovely vacation!

Owner's Response: We appreciate the 4 star review, despite the fact that our more generous guests have usually given 5 stars! While overall very positive, this guest was somewhat picky. We have our pools professionally cleaned every Saturday about noon, before a 4pm check in, and except for this guest, its never been brought up. We have our pool professional to return each Mid-week to insure every thing is just right! They liked, the house, the location and our amenities and thought that there might have been a bit of a stale smell on the basement/ ground level on their arrival. Well yes, you can get a little of that with the humidity at the beach! We've since added a good size humidifier in that area to keep the air moving better! We're glad our guest enjoyed her week, and would welcome her to come again, as we do get lots of repeat guests!

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this property for our first family vacation in the outer banks. The house comfortably fit all 15 of us, 8 adults and 7 children, and the kitchen/living area was perfect for all of us to eat meals and gather to watch the Olympics on the TV. The rooms were great, clean, and the kids enjoyed the bunk beds as well as the pool table. They absolutely loved the pool and slide, it was hard to get them out in order to go to the beautiful beach! The location was great, perfect for quick trips to either the Wright Brothers Museum, the piers and Bodie's lighthouse, shopping, out to dinner and to go karts and mini golf. Even a trip to Food Lion was convenient. It was a very relaxing vacation, and a wonderful time spent with family. The elevator was especially a plus. The views from the decks was amazing as well. Would highly recommend this property and if possible, rent again for a future vacation to the OBX.

Proberty was nice even having beach acess next to it still was quiet.

  • 4 of 5

The stay at the Cabana was nice. Had no problems except the toaster needs to be replaced has issues getting it to stay down. With recycling being done there maybe should be 2 trash cans on the lower level and top level one for trash others for recycles. There was plenty of room for the family and the elevator was very handy for my husband to be able to go upstairs. Having being so hot the week of the 13 of august the pool was very relaxing than being in the hot sand. Our stay was very nice. Would recommend this house.

AWESOME place to rent

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here week of May 21st, 2016 for the week. It was GREAT -- the place was clean, comfortable furniture, plenty of space for everyone to be together or by themselves, pool and slide are also an advantage for the kids. -- Parents and Grandparents enjoyed the pool also. With the elevator, it made it very convenient for our parents -- Very enjoyable !! Close to all we wanted to do and see in the Outer Banks. Considering a family vacation next and this will be my first place to contact about availability. I very much appreciated all the questions I had about the Outer Banks and the Cabana getting answered quickly and both professional and personable. I'm coming back !!!!
