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!
As owners of 'Making Memories' we take great pride in our cottage, as it has all the amenities that are desired in a perfect rental house with the proximity to the beach and the shops that the Outer Banks has to offer!
The location of 'Making Memories' makes this property perfect for any vacation, as it is meticulously maintained and conveniently located near restaurants and shops but also steps to the beach!
We have been to many beaches, and none compare to the beaches of the Outer Banks! We hope you enjoy 'Making Memories' as much as we have and we hope all of your memories are happy ones!
So this is the second year in a row that we have stayed at Jim and Sandy's place, and it did not disappoint again! Its a very short walk to the beach and well worth saving the serious $$$$$$ you would spend staying right on the beach. The home is very clean and modern enough to keep three teenages happy. The bikes and beach chairs that are provided made it extremely easy to take full advantage of the beach everyday we were there. We cooked out every night on the grill provided, and Food Lion is a short walk away also, so no need to drop a ton of cash on eating out! If your looking for fresh seafood, Billy's Seafood is about a 5 mile drive but well worth it! If you are looking for a great place for a group of 6 or less, you need to look no futher, this is perfect. The communication with Jim and Sandy has always been great, they make the whole experience stress free. Take our advice, you will not be disappointed!

My family stayed here for two weeks in July 2015.
-the owners were professional, helpful, and promptly responded to our questions.
-the home was clean, well equipped, and well maintained.
-the washer and dryer were a great amenity as we were traveling with a 4-month old.
-lots of outdoor space to relax and unwind.
-3-4 blocks away from a great YMCA with a fitness center, and indoor/outdoor pool.
-2-3 blocks away from the beach.
-walking distance to a grocery store and places to eat.
-remember to bring your own sheets and towels.
-allow some time to clean and tidy up the home before you depart.
-the bins for recycling are 2-3 blocks away next to the entrance to beach.
The house was beautiful, immaculate, and airy. It made you not want to leave even though the beach was just a five minutes walk. The kitchen was well equipped to make breakfast, lunch, dinner, and baked any deserts. Outdoor shower helped keep the sand outside of the house. Beach chairs, umbrellas, kid toys, and boogie boards were available which was an added bonus.
The location of the house was convenience to great restaurants, super markets, and best of all.....fishing pier.
My family and I had a wonderful unforgettable week as it was our first time in the Outer Banks. We will be back!
Everything was as listed but better than expected. The owner left detailed instructions and was available by phone and email. The house is on a quiet street, close to the beach and convenient to restaurants and shopping.
Just returned from a great week at the beach. This was a perfect house for our needs. Excellent location to beach and our favorite restaurants. Quiet neighborhood great for walks.
Making Memories is perfect for our family. The location is nice and quiet yet close to everything. My husband and I enjoy drinking our coffee on the balcony in the mornings. The kids enjoy relaxing on the hammock. The owners are friendly and accommodating.
Anywhere in the Outer Banks is a perfect place to be, but at Mile Post 11 in Nags Head, you are centrally located to the beach, shops, restaurants and activities! You are steps away to an elementary school, which in the summer has a great playground and basketball court for kids to play on! Many of the best attractions and restaurants are easily accessible from Making Memories! To learn about all of the must-see attractions that the Outer Banks has to offer, please make sure to look at the insider guide that was custom created through Gogobot!
