About Nina Foster

I live right here in the OBX. We own 3 restaurants in the OBX - Coastal Provisions Wine Shop Cafe and Oyster Bar in Southern Shores - Cravings and Coastal Cantina, both in Duck. I've lived here since 2006 when we opened our businesses. I grew up in Northern Virginia and always loved the OBX, and feel so blessed to live and work here. I love to surf, paddleboard, boat, fish, kayak, run and anything else on the beach and water. I love nature and the OBX is the best place to enjoy the outdoors coastal life. I love Pelican's Landing and continually make improvements to make it even more special. I enjoy seeing others enjoy and feel the magic of this home and the OBX. If you need a convenient getaway to a gorgeous beach, this is the place! Relax, Renew & Recharge.

Nina Foster purchased this house in 2009

Why Nina Foster chose Corolla

We love Pelican's Landing and the beach there. It's a wide family-friendly beach with several sandbars and no drop off's in the water. The sand is pristine white and soft. So much room on the non-crowded beach, it truly feels like your personal beach. Pelican's Landing is in close proximity to shopping, restaurants, bars, activities, the Whalehead lighthouse and the 4x4 beaches where the Wild Horses roam. No need to travel far for all things OBX beach fun. (TIP: During peak season (July/Aug), traffic is very heavy on Saturdays. Not to worry, you can rent this property and pick your check-in day).

What makes this house unique

Oceanfront, spacious & affordable with the best ocean view.

Nice House - Owner Was Great to Work With

  • 4 of 5

The property owner was very accessible for any questions and was obviously on top of any needed repairs. The home is lovely and well maintained. My only suggestion would be to add some kitchen items such as steak knives and a few additional frying pans for making pancakes.

Great House & Even Better Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Pelican's Landing was all we could ask for. The weather was amazing and the surrounding area was great with many activities. The house was extremely spacious with a great large back yard. The house has great views from its numerous decks and gazebo. Staying right on the beach made the house and vacation so much better.

Check-in and check-out was very easy and effortless. Nina was very responsive will all questions and was a great host. All of the beds were comfy and the entire house was spotless. I would recommend this house for anyone looking to stay in the area. Count me back in for a return there next summer!

Spring Break in Corolla

  • 4 of 5

I was a very nice and cozy home with great decorations to go along with the beach area. We had construction going on at a new home next door so we got up earlier than wanted to but it was great because we enjoyed the balcony with our coffee and books. Would recommend this to anyone interested in having a really nice place.

Excellent everything

  • 5 of 5

The house is roomy and has a great airy great room. The back deck and gazebo are perfect for watching sunrise/enjoying a morning beverage, and eating on the back deck is a treat.

Inside everything works (thus is rare in a house rental) and the air conditioning is plenty robust. The kitchen is the best-equipped I've seen in 30 years of renting. Even the knives, normally a pet peeve of mine, were, though inexpensive, solid and sharp.

And the location, right on the beach, could not be better.

Lastly, owner Nina was pleasant, very responsive to texts, and businesslike yet easy to deal with. Rental, check-in, and check-out procedures were clear, reasonable, and easy to follow.

We would definitely rent again. Thank you Nina!

Perfect for our family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Everything is just as pictured and described and Nina was great. Can't beat the super easy beach access and big lawn/deck for kids to run. Was plenty of space for our group of 6 adults and 4 kids with bedrooms for everyone and plenty of room to relax. Would definitely return if we found ourselves in the OBX again!

Wonderful home for a larger family/families

  • 5 of 5

Our first stay in the OBX was everything we could have wished for. The weather was perfect, the food excellent, and most of all the home we rented from Nina was as described and comfortable. I met Nina at the house and she was always wonderful to work with and was quick to reply to any questions I had. The rental home, Pelican's Landing, was roomy and full of natural light from the many large windows and sliding doors. It was very clean and well kept as well. The bedrooms are nice sized as where the bathrooms. The beds are clean and comfortable, as was the seating areas in the great room. We really enjoyed the gazebo. It was nice for those who wanted to sit in the shade yet still keep an eye on children or to take a snack break etc. We loved seeing the full moon over the beach and even watched a deer in a neighboring yard. I would recommend this vacation rental home to anyone looking for a clean, spacious home. Thank you Nina for sharing...we hope to come back again someday!
