Oceanside Cottage, Phenomenal Family Vacation, Steps To Breathtaking Beach

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Beautifully decorated beach cottage with panoramic views of the ocean from the living room and wrap-around deck. You will instantly relax as you hear the waves crashing on the beach while sipping a cold drink on the deck or while falling asleep after a delightful day at the beach.

Located on a small, quiet street, you are steps from the beach with a lifeguard stand within sight during the day, and thousands of twinkling stars at night. You will love the serenity and slow pace of beach living, while being just minutes from restaurants, shops, grocery stores, golf courses, state parks, fishing piers, and other local attractions.

The house has been recently renovated, including a brand new master bath. The decor is ideal for a seaside retreat. It's the perfect size for a family get away. Everyone has their own bedroom where they can relax, while the living area, kitchen, and dining room are open floor plan for enjoying time together.

We can't wait to get back to the beach house and the beautiful Outer Banks! We're pretty sure you'll feel the same way!!

About The Owner

We are a family of 6 from the midwest. Our kids range in age from Kindergarten to college and they all love the Outer Banks. There is definitely something to do for all ages! Going to the beach is probably our favorite activity. Greg takes advantage of the amazing photo opportunities, whether it's pictures of our kids playing in the surf, the sea turtles nesting, or some of the many water/shore birds. Leslie loves to walk up and down the beach, picking up shells that the tide brings in. The kids spend hours building sand castles, playing in the waves, and burying each other in the sand. We also love the fresh seafood at the local restaurants, and highly recommend Austin's Fish Market if you want to prepare your own! We also enjoy the North Carolina Aquarium, which isn't far from our place. Check out the sea turtle rescue wing!

The Owner purchased this house in 2016

Why The Owner chose South Nags Head

We rented this house for our family vacation a couple years ago and fell in love with it. It just felt like home. When we called to book the same week for the next summer, the owners told us that they were selling. We decided that we couldn't pass up the opportunity. Owning this beach house would be a dream come true! We are looking forward to making many happy family memories here and would love for you to be able to do the same with your family.

What makes this house unique

This house is in a PERFECT location. It is on a quiet street in South Nags Head, just steps from the beach. There is a lifeguard tower on the beach at the end of our street, which is a rare amenity. There are plenty of restaurants, golf courses, shops, grocery stores, banks, parks, piers, and other attractions in Nags Head. Our home is located just past all of those things, so you only have to drive a few minutes to anything you want to go to. You could also ride your bike along the bike path to get to many of those attractions. At night you can see millions of stars in the sky!

They have beautiful outdoor and indoor pools, are located 9.5 miles from our house, and offer very reasonably priced weekly family memberships for out of town guests.

Always a great escape coming down Greg & Leslie’s.

  • 5 of 5

Once again, we had a great relaxing family vacation at Greg & Leslie’s place. Everything was in order, great customer service and available at all times. Clean, great location, close to activities, shopping, just yards from the beach. This trip, we took the twins to Corolla to see the Wild Horse tour and also went Dolphin watching at Kitty Hawk Kites. Went to Booty’s for ice cream, Blue Moon Grill for some great seafood, Austin’s Seafood to pick up fresh seafood to cook. Mingled with neighbors, went ghost Crab looking at night with flashlights (the kids favorite activity). This is a little slice of heaven. Until next summer, adios!

Special place for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We love this cottage! My family has been staying her for several years. The owners are very welcoming and prompt in answering any questions or concerns you may have. It's puts you in vacation mode as soon as you walk in the door. My daughter loves sitting in the window seat. We will be back next year!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the beach house and my family is already looking forward to rent it again in the future.

First, the house is exactly what is advertised, clean, beautiful, kids friendly and steps away from a family friendly beach. We have been to many beaches on the Eastern shore but, found them a bit crowded and commercial. S Nags Head beach is far from the action and was purfect for our little children.

Second, the landlords are warm and welcoming; Leslie was very quick to respond and was easy to have a conversation with. She made sure we were rest assured with all the information she provided. Also, we appreciate her suggestions with local attractions.

Third, rental documentation was easy to understand and was not overbearing.

Finally, I highly recommend this rental for families who are looking to relax on an almost private beach.

Thanks a lot Greg & Leslie for sharing this gem with us, looking forward to rent again!

Perfect little cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! The house is the perfect size and has everything you need. Only a short walk to the beach which was also very nice. The only thing that could use improving is the bunk bed room. It has a few stairs going down to the room which seemed a little dangerous and it did not have very good air flow. The kids said the bed was not very comfortable either. The other beds were all nice and comfortable! Leslie was great to deal with and we hope to come back someday!
