If you love the Outer Banks, then you will love this home!

This beautiful Nags Head home has something for the whole family. With its location on the water, proximity to the best attractions in the area, and quality of the home, you are in store for the best the Outer Banks has to offer.

Come and see a true Outer Banks experience! This beautiful home sits right on the Roanoke Sound. With beautiful waterfront views from the amazing decks and screened in porch. Every room in the house has a great view of the surrounding water. The sunrise and sunset views from this home are breathtaking! With a private dock, you can fish or take a quick dip in the sound. If you are interested in water sports, this dock is the perfect place to start an adventure in boating, kite boarding, paddle boarding, kayaking, and much more. This home is a water lover’s paradise!

However, the fun does not stop there. Located on the Nags Head causeway you are only a short drive to the newly renourished Nags Head beaches where you can park at the brand new Jennette’s Pier for a fun day of fishing on the pier or playing on the beach. You are within walking distance to Sugar Creek, Tale of the Whale and Basnight’s Lone Cedar, three of the finest restaurants on the beach! You are also a close drive to many famous Outer Banks eateries. Not only are you close to restaurants, but some of the best shopping in the area is right around the corner. This home is located only a short distance from the Tangers Outlets which contain such stores as Ralph Lauren’s Polo, 9 West, Coach 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 exocentric jewelry stores and local art shops, great restaurants, The Lost Colony, and the Aquarium on Roanoke Island. This home will position you to take advantage of all the Outer Banks has to offer.

There is more to this home than just its location! The construction of this home is top of the line, with a great deal of attention to detail. From the gloss of the hardwood floors to the shine of the new appliances, you will know that this house is worth every penny. The layout is very spacious and well designed, perfect for a family vacation. With extra recreation room on all three floors, you will be far from crowded.

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

House very misleading compared to pictures

Beautiful house but not maintained. We had ants alive and dead all over the kitchen, ants and roaches in the master bathroom. The grass is not cut and poison ivy growing over the sidewalk and sides of deck, nowhere for kids to playing the yard. Very disappointed that we were unable to enjoy the beautiful views from the screen porch, as it was ripped and door was broken. We had no working air when we arrived and it took 24 hours before anyone came, which it still did not cool the house, as if the thermostat is controlled off site!!! The decks are very spacious and provide great sound views. The grill that is advertised is rusted and not used in years. Was very disappointed for the money we paid compared to what we thought we were getting. The VIEWS from the house are AMAZING from every room.

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.
