we loved

We loved EVERYTHING about this house but the bathrooms. They were a disappointment considering how beautiful and updated the rest of the home is. We would 100% return IF they were updated. The kitchen was well equipped and labeled so everything was easy to find and return! The beds were comfortable and the living room was awesome! We loved how big and open it was!

my 3rd stay

This is already my 3rd stay and planning one for next year! Kitchen was organized awesome and clean! Everything was comfortable in bedrooms and living area. I do feel for the price linens should be included!
- Michelle J. Oct 2021


New bathrooms, outside ground level hose, and laundry room in house would make this home a lot better. Going outside in the rain to wash clothes and dragging the clean dry clothes up the steps in bad weather is not pleasant. Great Kitchen. King size bed in one of the bedrooms would be more comfortable for the tall man but beds were comfortable. Bathrooms need remodeling for sure.

We come here year after year. This house is perfect for us. Kitchen, no complaints. It’s well equipped. Bedding and livig area are all good.

April Fool's is No Joke

This was a wonderful cottage to stay. We spent the week following July 4, and it was outstanding. The cottage looks almost exactly like the photos. It's beautiful. The views from the deck were stunning - up every morning to watch the sunrise! The bedrooms are tight which was a non-issue for our family, since that is truly where we went just to sleep. The large open living room/kitchen with the massive TV was an excellent central location for us to hang out and relax, prepare dinner, play games, etc. The central living area and deck were the popular locations for us to hang out. Being able to walk out on the beach and quickly pop back into the cottage was great. There is a 2nd fridge in the back as well as an embedded ice maker machine in the kitchen island. Both were excellent amenities. The kids enjoyed the back "play" room. None of us actually used the back porch with the rockers, as sitting on the deck was much more beautiful. There is a bounty of games and books and puzzles to keep you busy if the sun becomes too much or the weather isn't cooperating. Being entirely on one floor was another major bonus. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need...y'all they have a panini maker. We did bring our own airfryer, but every appliance you could possibly need is there. The only area that may be considered a drawback are the following: the bathrooms need updating...honestly this was the only thing the family was in agreement on, but it's not a deal breaker. It was worthwhile for us to rent towels/sheets - just one less thing to have to worry about packing. We were just down the street from Sam & Omey's - a staple of Nags Head. Food Lion was close, so picking up groceries was a cinch. Since the cottage is on a private road, we were not surrounded by crazy crowds...which is why we prefer staying further down. All in all, we absolutely loved this place and will plan to make this a place we return to next year.

Great beach location

This property is great! Great location right on the beach with immediate access to sand and fun! We were very happy with the house, rooms and awesome new kitchen fully equipped with appliances! Loved that there is a hose right at the door to rinse off our sandy feet! An outdoor shower is always a plus and the kids enjoyed the sunroom with games and books. Having 2 refrigerators was an awesome surprise! The huge tv and grill were a hit with the guys! We look forward to future visits! Areas for improvement: Extra decking from the end of the steps all the way to the laundry room would have been helpful. There isn't great water pressure for showering and a privacy film on the shower windows would be nice. The cleaning company on arrival has much to be desired as there were tons of sand in the couch on the floor and items left under all the furniture. A users guide for the tv and oven/stovetop would have been helpful.

Amazing view

The views from the deck are unbeatable. The new kitchen and living area was really nice. We loved the area under the house to play games and stay out of the rain. We plan on coming back next year to April fools.

Great Views

The views from the deck are unbeatable and the open area for the kitchen and living areas were perfect for the family. Easy access to the beach and updated kitchen were great. The bathrooms however could use work...especially the toilet in the 1st bathroom. I took my showers in the outdoor shower due to the small size and condition of the showers.

Perfect view.

I reserved April Fools because of the 3 levels of decks. The pictures looked amazing. When we were informed that the decks had to be replaced, we were disappointed and didn't know what to expect when we arrived. Well, we were pleasantly surprised!! The home is on top of the beach with a very large deck and a one of a kind view. Most of our time spent was either on the deck or down below on the sand. It couldn't have been a better week. We also enjoyed the wide open layout of the kitchen and living room. There was plenty of space for games, dinner making, and of course puzzles. (When you have a number of brothers that love puzzles you need a lot of space.) Thank you for letting us enjoy April Fools!

great view

This cottage had fantastic views...however we had a big problem with ants in the kitchen. Got traps which took care of most of them; however they were in the frig also. There were also dead ants encrusted on the frig door & other parts of the frig. The bathrooms were grimy. Bed was comfortable as was the living room. The views were stellar off the front deck and we really enjoyed that plus we were so close to the beach. I would be hesitant to stay there again though.

This is a fantastic house.

This is a fantastic house. The view from the decks is breathtaking! This house is well equipped and very well maintained. We enjoyed our time and look forward to next summer.
