Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautifully decorated. Wonderful views of ocean from deck and crow's next. Short walking path to ocean. Immaculately clean! Kitchen was better equipped than mine at home! Hearing the waves splashing from the house was so relaxing. Close to shops but a bit off the beaten path. I would love to come back again.

It was wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd straight year our family and 2 white golden retrievers have stayed at this property on the same week of August and it was perfect as always. We had 7 days on the beach 🏖? with easy access. The cottage is old school which we really enjoy and the location is perfect. Our dogs enjoy it as well cause they ran free with other dogs 🐶? on the beach. Life guards never once bothered us or families around that have well behaved pets - just an enjoyable time. There are other things to do around Nags Head as well but we choose the beach cause the days were perfect. The owners are great with communication and any needs. Great time!

Very quaint

  • 4 of 5

Perfect for our needs. Baby friendly. Did have some leftover dog hair from a previous tenant that irritated my son's allergies a bit, but all in all a very nice spot.

Surf Shack 6...Great Location! Charming Cottage Feel!

  • 4 of 5

Surf Shack 6 is a very nice place to stay. Plenty of room for our family of 8 as well as our family pup! The shack is within walking distance to both Fishing Piers and Restaurants. We loved how close it was to the beach as well as the rooftop deck. What a wonderful location to spend our vacation!

....location, location, location

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at this home for several years now, it offers one of the best locations and the beach is just steps away right behind us. Great views from the crow's nest on the new deck, pet friendly and the screened in porch is great for that early morning coffee.

Cozy clean cottage

  • 5 of 5

The house is very close to the beach so we could set up for the day, return to house if needed, and head back quickly and easily. Pretty quiet setting. House was very clean. Close enough to main road to get to attractions but far enough away that we didn’t hear traffic. Beds were comfortable, kitchen well stocked. Welcoming gift was a nice touch. Had a great time!
