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 Whalehead Beach

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.

Charming beach house!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights on Spring Break at this house and enjoyed every minute. This is not the newest of houses along this stretch but it has been very well maintained and updated. When we arrived the paint was fresh, the place was spotless and was decor was cute.

We had a blast, driving on the 4wd beach in Corova, deep sea fishing, flying kites and shell hunting.

It is conveniently located near shopping and grocery stores.

It could not have been better. And the owner was very prompt in communicating before, during and after. Hope we can come back soon!!

The house was clean and ready for us. The decor was cute and well done. The house was so functional and useful. The kitchen had everything we needed for our stay and the laundry room was a major asset! We loved walking out to the beach daily and finding shells, playing in the water even though it was late November and then running back to the house, rinsing off and hoping in the hot tub. My kids had a blast and my in-laws were very impressed!

Great spot for a friends trip!

  • 5 of 5

This house is awesome. We were a group of four who stayed for a long weekend when we were in town for a friend's wedding. The house had a perfect layout to offer lots of togetherness but plenty of privacy for each of us too. We were pleasantly surprised to see that it was linen-ready and loved the bar area in the basement. We are so glad we rented this house instead of staying in a hotel and hope to return in the future!

Amazing home-fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

From the ease of "checking in" to the home to "checking out" ,this home was fantastic! The homeowner, Nina, was fabulous to work with. The home was perfect for our family reunion. The only challenge was that there are no windowshades or covering in the upstairs loft making it s challenge for anyone to sleep past sunrise. The grounds and home are well maintained! We'd go back in a heart beat!!! Thanks Nina for this opportunity!
