About the property

Charming 4-bedroom house with easy beach access and beautiful view of the sound

The beach house is spacious, beautifully decorated and very well maintained by owners who take pride in making sure you will have a wonderful vacation. It features a fully equipped kitchen and large dinning area (8-seat dining table and extra seating at the kitchen island). While the beach house comes equipped with complimentary high-speed Internet and cable TV, you can put away the electronics and enjoy some family time with lots of board games, playing cards, puzzles and basketball. Enjoy your favorite beverage on the large upper deck while you watch the sunset over the sound, and savor a cup of coffee in the morning on the lower deck as the sun rises over the ocean side.

While just far enough south for some relaxation and serenity, the beach house is close to great restaurants, shopping and fishing. Chillin’ Ri’ Cheer is just 5 miles from the legendary Sam & Omies Restaurant, the Tanger Outlet Mall for great shopping, and the new Jennette’s Pier in Nags Head. For some great live music the Outer Banks Fishing Pier is just up the road at MP 18.5, home of Fishheads Bar and Grill. Take advantage of your close proximity to the Bodie Island Lighthouse (2.5 miles), Oregon Inlet Fishing Center (4 miles), Roanoke Island to visit the Aquarium or the Lost Colony, or the historic Manteo waterfront (11 miles).

The beach house comfortably sleeps 9 (up to 6 adults) with a full Jack and Jill bathroom in between each bedroom. There are 4 bedrooms on the 1st level (1 master bedroom with queen bed + cable TV, 1 guest bedroom with queen bed, 1 guest bedroom with 2 twin beds, and 1 kid's room with bunk beds and trundle bed + cable TV and DVD). The beach house has a roll-away cot for extra sleeping capacity. Optional linen service is provided for your convenience or you may bring own sheets and towels.

Standard rental week is Sunday to Sunday; however, depending on availability we will will consider other requests. There is more flexibility in the off season to schedule your stay during the week or over a long weekend, with minimum stay of 3 nights. Please note that reservations are not accepted for vacationing students or persons under the age of 25 unless accompanied by an adult 25 or older (minimum 1 for every 4 persons under 25). The adult must stay in the house each night.

Chillin’ Ri’ Cheer is in South Nags Head, MP 21, and features wide, secluded beaches (fewer crowds even in peak season) and awesome sea glass hunting. You’ll have easy access (300 yards) to the beach. South Colony S Drive is parallel to the beach road (S. Old Oregon Inlet Road) with public beach access directly across the street, and public beach access parking just a couple of blocks away which is very convenient if you want to drop off a load of beach chairs and umbrellas.

The beach house comes equipped with beach chairs, skim boards, kids beach toys, and gas grill. Thoughtfully decorated and equipped with amenities, you’ll want to make Chillin’ Ri’ Cheer your Outer Banks vacation home every year.

About Bob and Terri Lancaster

I made my first trip to Southern Shores in 1970. Even though the Outer Banks has grown since that time; it still has that Outer Banks charm that brought the very first vacationers to the island in the early 1800s. Some of the original cottages (approximately 14) are still standing and in use.

My wife and I and two kids live in Richmond, and travel to the Outer Banks as often as possible. For that reason, our beach house is our home-away-from-home, as well as a place that we love to share with family and friends.

Bob and Terri Lancaster purchased this house in 2010

Why Bob and Terri Lancaster chose Nags Head

We have been vacationing in South Nags Head for close to 30 years. In fact, we've been renting on the same road, S. Colony South Drive, every year since my first daughter came along 20 years ago. When we had an opportunity to purchase a place of our own, Chillin' Ri' Cheer was the perfect beach house and the perfect location.

A breath of fresh air everyday

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED staying here! First of all, my favorite color is aqua-so HELLO! Secondly, it was beautifully kept, and efficiently stocked. The decks were amazing to sit upon-the chairs-OH the chairs! I highly recommend this location! We are planning to be back!

Wonderful house, great location, very responsive owners

  • 5 of 5

We had a great long weekend at this house. The sunsets over the sound were beautiful, and it was a quick walk to the beach. We liked that the bedrooms were all downstairs, and the living/dining/kitchen upstairs because we could stay up and hang out when the kids went to bed. The home was on a more residential part of the island, so it was nice and peaceful. Would definitely recommend!

Lovely, well-equipped home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Bob and Terri's home. The house is very (very) well-equipped. The kitchen is stocked with everything/ anything for cooking, there are extra pillows and blankets, lots of towels (not beach towels), beach stuff, and plenty of board games. The outdoor spaces and comfy deck chairs make for great sunsets. Bob is fantastic and easy to work with. We hope to return for year three!

Fantastic Location and House!

  • 5 of 5

This house was very well equipped for all our needs. There were lots of beach items, games, and movies. The house was clean and well maintained (and very quiet- perfect for sleeping in some days). The walk to the beach was short and we loved being so close to the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. The owners were very helpful and responsive.

An Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this beach house. It accommodated our family perfectly. We didn't need to bring anything from home such as sheets,towels, paper products, soaps. What a pleasant surprise. We loved that it was on two levels with amazing decks and sleeping quarters were on the first level. We also appreciated that the beach was a close walk but never crowded because we were south of Nags Head in a small residential area on the way to Cape Hatteras. We communicated several times in advance with the owners who gave us great ideas for restaurants and shopping and points of interest. Even while we were there, they answered any questions we had, either by phone or email in a timely manner. We could tell that they took pride in their property. We heard about this place from a family friend who stayed here last year and had the same great experiences we did.
