About anne schultheis
My family loves the ocean. We love to surf, fish, boogie board, explore, and chill in the sun and rain! We have 6 kids who have been humbly raised to appreciate the nature and vibes of the Outer Banks. As we all evolve, our love for this special place keeps growing stronger! Though we have strived to build this dream through our beach house, which is just a "thing"...we are in tune with the place that surrounds this house. The dream! Make it real. "life doesn't have to be perfect to be wonderful" I hope you all catch our vibes..Ocean Dream On my friends!!
anne schultheis purchased this House in 2008
Why anne schultheis chose South Nags Head
My father, now 90, used to come down to Kitty Hawk, Nags Head and Kill Devil Hills with his fishing buddies. He would come every year in May and October.,,year after year. This was his secret getaway. Eventually, he decided to share his secret place with the rest of us, and we have been coming back ever since.! If you have the opportunity to stay at Ocean dream On, know that my father aka Raffaele is the artist behind half of the art and paintings in our house. But only half! Having inherited his passion for fishing and art, I too have contributed with my paint brush and fishing pole. This house was an empty canvass when we purchased it, but that was the whole point!
What makes this House unique
When we found this place, it was seriously in distress. It used to be the fourth home back with a road several homes in front. Over the years with beach erosion, and unattended support from local opposers, many of the homes literally got swallowed up during hurricanes! This house was almost next in line. With the grace and support of this neighborhood, we were spared! We took a chance...and..so far so good. Since then, the government decided to pass everything needed to replenish and save South Nags Head. The beaches were nourished and expanded to hold back the threat of natural erosion. It was done in a most environmentally friendly and sensible manor. It did take years to convince certain local groups that it was inevitable, and extremely necessary for their livelihood. WE did have a vision despite the roaring NorEaster that was tearing up the place. A dream come true.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us. This home is perfectly set-up for large families with plenty of comfortable sleeping space and room to roam. The game room is a huge hit with the kids...and the porch view, well that’s Mom’s favorite spot. See you next year!
Thank you so much, Dana, for bringing you family for Easter. I am so glad your kids enjoyed it..,as we have a bunch of kids of our own who we had in mind when setting up the beach house. The rec room was designed by kids for kids! And the porch/ deck view? Designed by me! With moms in mind.. We look forward to having you come back.. and Thank you for catching those good vibes! Ocean Dream On!
Amazing property with breathtaking views!
This was my first time on the Outerbanks and I am so glad I chose Ocean Dream On!! The owner made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy an amazing week of vacation time and our 1 YR Anniversary celebration. We had beautiful views of the ocean, were steps away from the beach and had all the comforts of home at our fingertips. It is located close to shopping, dining and plenty of fun activities without being right in the middle of a busy "tourist" location
I have already asked if we can book again next year!
A little piece of Key West on the Outer Banks!
We have been spending vacations on the Outer Banks for almost 50 years. This year I tried booking through VRBO and were so happy when I found "Ocean Dream On." We had a great mini-vacation at the spur of the moment. Ocean Dream On was really unique, all wrapped in fun. Plenty of room for the four of us, great location, spectacular views, all the amenities you could ask for. The kitchen was especially well equipped. The cottage was clean, cozy, and comfortable. Loved all the fun colors and art. Would highly recommend this experience to anyone. We will be back. Thanks Anne!!
Spring Break 2018
The beach home, the beach view, and everything about our trip was amazing! The owners are very kind and accommodating, and truly care about your vacation stay. The home is very authentic and fun. I cannot think of a better beach home in Nags Head!
Thank you so much, Jennifer, for staying with us! Your group was fantastic. You are our first ‘wave’ to kick off the season! Way to carry the vibes.. :-D.
OCEAN DREAM ON
We had a wonderful time and the house was perfect. Being steps away from the beach was great and we loved being able to bring our dog on our vacation. We will definitely be back next year!
Thank you so much! We look forward to having back! The waves will be waiting for you. ;-)
Great location and very responsive owners
We had a great time at the house with 4 adults and 4 kids. Just a few steps from the beach, it had everything we needed. We cooked and ate every meal at the house. Was able to do laundry every day. Even stuck in the house for a 1 1/2 days due to a big storm, we still enjoyed ourselves. The hot tub is a life saver. Annie was super responsive and engaging.
South Nags Head is located at the center of the Outer Banks. You can get to the northern end for off road adventure where the wild horses roam, or venture south to Hattaras for some marine activity, just a skip across the bridge to Roanoke Island for entertainment and shopping, or just hang out in the neighborhoods of Nags Head for all the bars and restaurants you could ask for! A bike path runs the full length of Nags Head. Several fishing piers with tiki bars! Jockey's Ridge State Park, Nags Head Woods, sound side beach, outdoor adventure everywhere from mellow hiking to extrem kite surfing! Aviation history, Native American history, the Lost Colony history, real pirate history, environment and wildlife preservation...history all around! Fishing all around! Coffee shops and juice bars, tiki bars, surf shops with bars! Good vibes all around! Enjoy your morning coffee watching the sunrise out of the ocean.. right out the back door or from your bed! Hike the sand dune to the top, with a bottle of wine and watch the sun set into the bay! What you do in between...?...is up to you!
