About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bath Beach Cottage In Nags Head, NC At Mile Post 11

Hi, we are glad you have found us! If you are looking for a 3 bedroom 2 bath home that sleeps six with 1 king, 1 queen and 2 twins and is only a five minute walk to the beach you don’t have to look any further! This is the house you have been searching for! It’s bright and airy, located on a quiet street, meticulously maintained and fully equipped with everything to make your stay enjoyable!

Get up in the morning; make your coffee and head to the deck and watch the sunrise. After breakfast, you can go for a walk, take a bike ride, read a book, watch TV, relax in the hammock or maybe go to Jockey’s Ridge State Park and climb the dunes, try hang gliding or fly a kite.

If you are ready to go to the beach, grab a book, chair, umbrella, maybe pack a lunch and then walk down the sidewalk directly to the beach! You will find a small area for parking if you want to drive. Have fun looking for sea glass and trying to spot some dolphin. If you want to go for a walk on the beach to get a snack or ice cream, the Nags Head Pier is a half-mile away!

When you return from the beach you will enjoy the enclosed outside shower. At 4:00 you could check out Pirate’s Cove or the Oregon Inlet Fishing Center and watch the charter boats returning from their fishing trips and view their catch for the day.

At dinnertime you will find everything you need to help you prepare your meal! The gas grill will also come in handy. If you need something for that special dish you are preparing, don’t worry; Food Lion and Harris Teeter are just down the road and you could also pick up a movie at Red Box. If you are looking to explore the island and go out to eat, there are many restaurants that are located near Making Memories. Some of our family favorites that are close are Tortugas Lie, which has been featured on The Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” and voted #1 in Costal Living for North Carolina’s top restaurant! Down at Mile Post 9 ¾ , you will find The Kill Devil Grill, which was also featured on The Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” and offers something for everyone in the whole family!

After dinner go for a walk, ride the bikes, play miniature golf, go for ice cream, go night fishing from the Nags Head Pier, or just relax because tomorrow is another day in Paradise!

We want you to enjoy your stay in 'Making Memories' and we hope all your memories are happy ones!
