The beach is literally your backyard . . . go play!!

This charming oceanfront beach cottage is located at the end of a quiet cul de sac and the beach is your backyard. Just steps to the ocean, Sea Glass features a large open living area with bamboo floors, lots of natural light, and stunning panoramic ocean views. Enjoy your morning coffee on the sofa watching the dolphins play in the surf and the sun rise on the Atlantic . . . you'll want to be on a permanent vacation. The well equipped kitchen features stainless steel appliances, fridge with ice maker and filtered water on door, and an island bar overlooking the adjoining dining and living rooms. Extending the living area is a huge oceanfront covered porch with a tall table + 4 tall chairs, plus a picnic table for the little ones. Grab a good book and a glass of wine and enjoy the shimmering ocean at sunset . . . my favorite time of day :-) Sea Glass also offers three bedrooms and sleeps 7: an oceanfront queen, an oceanfront twin bunk room with extra twin mattress, and a large spacious king bedroom with it's own half bath. The shared full bath features a shower with tub should you need one for the kids . . . but trust me, you'll be taking all your showers in the large private outside shower with hot and cold water.

Enjoy spectacular shelling, surf fishing, sun bathing, surfing, swimming, kayaking . . . and so much more. Or just stay put and enjoy the peace and quiet, and the sound of the ocean. Your family will remember the memories you make at Sea Glass for generations!

About Mark & Kim Milby

We have lived on the Outer Banks for 20 years. My grandfather built a cottage on the outer banks in the 1950's and we have been coming here all our lives. We love it here and wanted to have a cottage for our family and friends to enjoy when it is not rented. We are in Real Estate and architectural design and loved bringing this cottage back to life when we bought it. We hope you will love it as much as we do.

Mark & Kim Milby purchased this Cottage in 2015

Why Mark & Kim Milby chose Nags Head

Location, Location, Location! It has such incredible views and is literally steps from the ocean. And it is not so big that you have to bring 20 of your closest friends to afford it. A traditional, delightful Nags Head cottage perfect for 2 couples and their kids.

What makes this Cottage unique

We are a short bike ride from Bodie Island Lighthouse and the Outer Banks Fishing Pier, which features Fish Heads Bar & Grill (a local fav!). If you are a surfer we have 2 great breaks just north and south of us. Or enjoy hunting for sea glass and the perfect conch shell to take home as a souvenir. South Nags Head is away from the neon lights . . . but still close enough to all Outer Banks attractions, restaurants and shopping. The area is loved for being what the rest of Nags Head "used" to be like . . .

                                                              The Sea Glass is our home away from home. Kim and Mark put love and care into maintaining the beautiful simplicity of this house! We can’t wait to return!

                                                              Cozy home with the perfect location.

                                                              We loved our stay at Sea Glass. The owners were great and the interior was perfect. We enjoyed being steps from the ocean and in a quiet area of Nags Head.

                                                              Relaxing and comfortable retreat

                                                              For our first family vacation in years we choose Seaglass cottage and we are so glad we did! Just steps from a quiet and serene beach, the cottage is comfortable and homey, with nice touches throughout. We particularly enjoyed the tall Adirondack chairs on the porch with a wonderful view of the ocean and spent most of our time sitting outside enjoying the sounds and sights of the ocean.

                                                              The cottage is also in a great location, far enough removed from the hustle and bustle of Nags Head but just a short drive away from some great restaurants, shopping, and attractions.

                                                              We will definitely be back!

                                                              Perfect Cottage

                                                              Within feet of the ocean, Sea Glass is a wonderful beach rental. Clean, well decorated, ocean views, and a great front porch where we enjoyed breakfast and dinner. The neighborhood is quiet and the beach is not crowded. We will definitely return.

                                                              Perfect vacation cottage!!!

                                                              We absolutely loved our stay at the Sea Glass house. The location was perfect, so peaceful and tranquil. The cottage was just perfect, had everything we needed and was decorated so nice. We loved just going out on the deck at any time of the day or night and just sitting and enjoying the view. We would see schools of dolphins frequently swimming up and down the coast. And the Sea Glass bottle of wine was the perfect touch. We definitely plan on rebooking next year for our vacation. Thank you Mark & Kim for having this wonderful vacation rental for us to have enjoyed.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              So happy you enjoyed the cottage! Look forward to hearing from you again next year :-)

                                                              THis was our second year staying here and it could not be a more perfect place. FIrst off location right on the beach the house is so very comfortable this is not run down beach furniture it is immaculately kept and extremely comfortable. When you arrive the house is pristine clean and the kitchen very well appointed. The owners are local and so very attentive to your every need. If you are looking for a wonderful trip don't look any further you will not be disappointed. We plan on renting for years to come.
