About Tommy or Becky DeSanto

We had the cottage built in 1988. The following year we were married at the Village Beach Club. The first couple married at that venue and apparently trend-setters as beach weddings have become very popular since then. We lived in Atlanta at that time, but moved to the Village on the sound in 2006 when our son started high school. Tommy plays in a band on the beach at many different venues and Becky recently retired from the medical profession.

Tommy or Becky DeSanto purchased this cottage in 1988

Why Tommy or Becky DeSanto chose Nags Head

Because it is comfortable, cozy, clean, and reasonably priced with many of the same amenities as the big pricy properties. Published rates include 6.5% NC state sales tax & 6% Dare County lodging tax.

What makes this cottage unique

It combines the things we love, the beach, golf and convenient location. Shops and restaurants are within walking distance, access to the sound is unbeatable, and the ocean is fantastic. Closest public beach access is the Nags Head Municipal access--a 10 minute walk. Guest also have passes for "The Village Beach Club"-- a private club with bath house, pool, restaurant, bar and game room, and tennis courts. Parking is available and shuttle transportation is provided to the Beach Club. Guests also enjoy reduced rates at the Village Links Golfcourse.

A great place

  • 4 of 5

It was a great house - all the amenities you needed and centrally located (the access to Food Lion was key!). The pier at the Village was great for crabbing with the kids. Access to the pool beachside was also great. Would rent again in a heartbeat and hopefully next time less rain!

The house was very well kept and clean. Nice views of the golf course.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the house. Becky was very friendly and willing to help if needed. It was nice having access to the club house, especially bc of their beach access. The house itself was very cute and clean. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is bc we had to provide our own sheets and towels or pay an addition fee for the owners to provide them. I’ve rented through VRBO a lot and never had this happen. Coming on a plane made bringing this items difficult. However, maybe that’s normal for VRBO homes in that area. If we were driving it would not have been a big deal. Anyway, again, we really enjoyed our stay and would rent this house again if we come back in the area.

Owner's Response: We understand that linens can be an issue. We try to make it totally apparent. The OBX tradition is “byol”, due to the repeated turnover & difficulty for the cleaners to handle that & get the cottages ready ASAP. Most OBX travelers are accustomed to this & actually prefer to “byol”. The linens provided by the rental companies are low quality & often the fitted sheets don’t fit well. And we can charge less without the linens. But we do understand the complaint, & wish we had a better solution.

Perfect for our Trip

  • 5 of 5

My college friends and I had a great stay here during our friend's wedding in Nags Head. Highly recommend to anyone traveling to North Carolina! The rooms were perfect, the house was clean and ready when we needed it. The owners were very helpful and accommodating. Great area and great place to stay! We will be back!

Convenient location, comfortable and very clean- more than enough space for our family of four adults and 1 dog. Especially enjoyed the top deck at sunset for happy hour. Carport was a nice bonus for our topless Jeep. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you!
