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). The beach house comes equipped with complimentary high-speed Internet and cable TV, or 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.

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.

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).

On the lower level, with new carpet and flooring (2017), 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 that can be converted into a king size bed, and 1 kid's room with bunk beds and trundle bed + cable TV and DVD. Optional linen service is provided for your convenience or you may bring own sheets and towels. The 1st level has a conveniently located washer and dryer, and laundry detergent is typically supplied.

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.

The beach house comes equipped with beach chairs, skim boards, kids beach toys, and a 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 South Nags Head

We have been vacationing in South Nags Head for over to 30 years. In fact, we had been renting on the same beach house across the street every year for about 20 years. When we had an opportunity to purchase a place of our own, Chillin' Ri' Cheer was the perfect beach house and the perfect location.

Roomy with all the accessories.

  • 5 of 5

Because the weather was cool and very windy most of the week-end we were there, it made us appreciate the roominess (large living area, 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths) of this home as we were inside much of the time. In addition to having every appliance and utensil one could imagine, there were several TVs , numerous books and games available to keep us entertained. The house is a short drive from Bodie Island Lighthouse and just a few miles to Nags Head proper where most of the restaurants and shops are located.

Comfortable home away from home! Minutes from the beach...

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed for a week at Chillin’ Ri’ Cheer with another family. The location was wonderful, very quiet, minutes from the beach, with wonderful views of the sound (especially at sunset which thrilled the two toddlers). The kitchen was impressively stocked with cookware and wine glasses. There was a wide variety of videos, games and puzzles to entertain the kids (and adults).

The dumbwaiter was handy for grocery trips and for packing up as we left. And the bell provided endless entertainment for two year olds. We appreciated that the owners were quick to respond to any questions. The only minor complaint (easily fixed) was the overpowering perfume from the detergent used on the bedsheets.

Both families were definitely interested in returning in the future!

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!
