Southern Cross Old Nags Head

Review for 420-C

Saturday, Oct 6 2012
Nice beach house in a beautiful neighborhood. Short walk to beach. Across from Nags Head Pier allows for a perfect view of the Fourth of July fireworks without leaving your home! Pool is large with plenty of chairs/chaises. Spent many days there instead of the beach because of the excessive heat. Kitchen has a separate ice maker which is great for filling coolers. Was not stocked well at all. Hated Master Bedroom on the top floor, right next to the kitchen (refrigerator). The Master Bath was nice with the huge jacuzzi tub. Did not like the layout of the house. Only 3 full baths--2 private, one shared with a bedroom with access from the hall. Nothing in the basement. Was not practical to have a guest room and sleep-sofa in the basement with no bathroom. The shared bathroom hallway access was locked most of the time by my son and his girlfriend. We took great advantage of the outside shower. It would have been nice to have at least a half bath upstairs without having others use the private bath in the Master Suite. Nothing special about cable--just basic--even in the great room. The house is equipped with WiFi, but coverage isn't good anywhere on the OBX. If you don't smoke (or even if you do), the flower pots outside were nasty with cigarette butts and trash. The previous tenants were not very considerate in that regard. The furniture was okay: the great room furniture was old and covered with slipcovers. The dining table was huge and everyone could sit down and eat together. No porches or decks on the front of the house. I like to sit outside in the morning and drink my coffee while the sun is facing that side of the house.
