If you love the unique coastal environment the Outer Banks provides, then this is the home for you! This beautiful Nags Head home has something for the whole family. The spacious and well-designed layout is perfect for a worry-free and relaxing vacation. With its location on Cedar Island on the Roanoke Sound and its proximity to some of the greatest attractions in the area, you are in store for the best the Outer Banks has to offer.

Every room in the house has a view of the surrounding water and the decks offer breathtaking views of the sunset. Pura Vida has access to a private dock, so you can fish, crab, or take a quick dip in the sound. If you are interested in water sports, the dock is the perfect place to start an adventure in kite boarding, paddle boarding, kayaking, and much more. This home is a water lover’s paradise!

But the fun does not stop there. Conveniently located on the Nags Head Causeway, you are only a short drive to the Nags Head beaches where you can visit Jennette’s Pier and Aquarium exhibits. You are also in walking distance of Sugar Creek, Tale of the Whale, and Basnight’s Lone Cedar, three of the finest restaurants on the beach! And some great shopping is just around the corner. Take a stroll through the Outlets Nags Head where you can browse through stores such as Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, and J Crew. On cloudy days, you can take a quick trip over the bridge to the historic waterfront village of Manteo, known for its jewelry stores and local art shops, great restaurants, The Lost Colony, and the Aquarium on Roanoke Island. Or head to Wanchese and grab some fresh seafood and sandwiches at O’Neals Sea Harvest.

Please note that the private dock listed for this home is 200 feet north of the property. The boat and boat lift at the private dock for Pura Vida are not for guest use. The neighboring home has a dock directly beside Pura Vida that is not for guest use-that is a private dock for the neighbor.

Loved it!!!!!

Despite the sketchy weather, we had a GREAT week!!! The 3 queen bedrooms on the middle floor were PERFECT for our three teenagers. The Master on the top floor was fabulous. The bed was soooo comfortable. The drive to the beach wasn't a big deal at all. We crabbed and fished on the dock and caught lots of crabs- use fish for bait, not chicken like the locals tell you!! We will def consider coming back, even though we like to try new places every year. The pizza at Nags Head Pizza across the street was so darn good, and the jet ski place up the road was fantastic, you can totally get a deal there vs the place across the street btw!! Great vacation!!!

Mrs

Pura Vida was the perfect location for our family vacation! We loved being situated on the sound and within walking distance to the beach (about 1/2 mile away). We also had easy access to restaurants & shops. Bring your crab traps and catch blue crab right off the deck for dinner! Amazing! The house is beautifully designed & so comfortable. The kitchen is well-appointed and easy to prepare daily meals. The decks and covered sitting area overlooking the sound were a peaceful place to sit and reflect on the day or to pull out a board game and spend some time with the kids. The bathrooms are spacious and plentiful. We also greatly appreciated being able to do laundry throughout our stay. We enjoyed grilling, eating, lounging, and playing outdoors, as well as rocking on the deck with our coffee. Furthermore, the outdoor shower was fun for our kids & convenient after the beach. This house sets the bar high, & we enjoyed our best vacation to date! The owners are kind and accommodating and take great pride in their home.

"Pure Life!"

This is such a nice home and there is something here for everyone! The house is spacious and it's nice that the kids have the middle level for their bedrooms and a play area. Our older daughter has a private room, bath and balcony. All the rooms have a balcony with sliding door access. My husband and I really like the privacy of having the master bedroom on the top floor. Most of the rooms have televisions, although the channel selection is not extensive (not that we spend much time watching TV when there is so much to do.) It is also nice that there is both a sun deck and screened in porch on the top level that provide lots of options for entertainment, laying out, and eating out. The views of the Albemarle Sound are incredible, especially the sunsets! One particularly nice feature is the private canal and private dock that has a built in bench where we love to enjoy some peace and quiet with a cup of coffee in the mornings or a glass of wine in the evenings and watch the wildlife there. The other reason why we come back to this house is because of it's central location to pretty much everything! My daughter and I like shopping at the outlet mall and in Manteo, and my husband and the boys like to the tackle shops and fish off the two nearby piers. We all enjoy the large selection of restaurants, mini golfs, and the beach (of course!) -- all are within minutes. Thank you for making such a lovely home a great place for our family vacations!

Fabulous home with outstanding views!

This was our first stay here and the pictures don't do it justice. This house sits right on the Sound with a private deck and amazing sunset views and its just a quick trip across the street to Ocean beaches. Kayak fishing on the Sound was the highlight of our trip! House was very clean with warm and inviting décor. TVs, games, DVDs, books...provides something fun for all ages. Decks off of every room provides relaxing moments for those who need a little time to themselves. Love this place and will definitely be back!

nice home but....

Very spacious. .. but don't count on having any tvs that work. says it has 7 tvs 1 of them works others do not have wires to hook up and the one that does work has 6 channels.... it is a very nice home no yard to enjoy do to very high grass. Luckily there is lots of deck space. Wonderful views all around the home. Also the twin bedroom has no door on it.

Great House!

This house is beautiful. We had lots of room and enjoyed the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The Sound views were breathtaking. Check-in and check-out with Sun Realty couldn't have been easier. We will be back next year.
