About the property

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 South 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 . . .

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

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.

Outstanding! Clean, comfortable and perfect vacation spot!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at the Sea Glass cottage. The house was so comfortable and well set up. All the amenities that we could think of were provided. The deck with the ocean views and sounds was the highlight of our vacation. The beach was clean and just steps from the house. We went on several excursions and always looked forward to returning to the house and the beach. The outside shower was the only shower our family used and the washer an dryer were much appreciated!

Charming beach cottage with water views and steps to beach

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was clean, comfortable and very charming with its beachy decor. It accommodated four adults and one child quite well. It was supplied with everything we needed. Everyone loved the outside shower as we came off the beach. The best part was stepping in sand as soon as you walked down the stairs and it was steps over a small dune to get to the beautiful beach. The views from the house and the front porch were gorgeous and we watched dolphins swim in the ocean and all types of birds fly overhead. The area was very family friendly and quiet at night. It was a short ride to the many stores and restaurants. This beach cottage gave us the relaxing family time that we hoped for.

Wonderful little place in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

What I'd love to tell you is how much I hated my stay here - just to keep you away and give me a choice of weeks in the future. In reality, we had a wonderful time @ Sea Glass. The cottage was well maintained, very clean, and stocked with kitchen and entertainment basics. One highlight of each day was having my coffee on the deck in the early morning hours when no one else was out - so peaceful and beautiful to be there. The beach starts literally at the end of the stairs, so if you enjoy the beach as much as we do, this is (unfortunately) the place you want to be.

Kim and Mark were quick with responses to any questions we had both prior to and during our stay. And the bottle of Sea Glass wine waiting for us in the fridge upon our arrival was a thoughtful touch.

We can't wait to go back!
