AMAZING South Nags Head home, pool, hot tub, steps to beach
1544 Sqft Vacation Home hosted by Tracy
8 Guests . 3 Bedrooms . 2 Bathrooms


Enjoy views of the ocean , hear the crash of the waves and smell the salt air. This home is just steps to the direct beach access on this quiet street in S Nags Head MP20 with no busy streets to cross. A lifeguard stand is at the end of this street and is staffed during the day during summer. Beautifully decorated and many amenities to make your vacation complete (pool, hot tub, fenced yard, oceanview - 3 back from ocean, DVDs, Games, plenty of outdoor living)

South Nags Head beaches are not crowded and perfect for family relaxation yet still close to restaurants, shopping, grocery stores, and local attractions. Very near the Bodie Island Lighthouse, the NC Aquarium on Roanoke Island, 4X4 beaches. Take a morning walk, jog or bike ride on the wide paved path behind the house that is separate from the main road.

For the fishermen in your family, you are close to the Oregon inlet fishing center, OBX pier and Jeanette’s pier. If you fish from the beach there is a fish cleaning station for your convenience outside of the house.

Why we chose South Nags Head: Our family has been coming to the outer banks for many years and South Nags Head is our favorite location. We love it so much for it’s quiet beaches and convenience. Many years we have watched turtles hatch and make their journey to the ocean. We married on the beach here in South Nags Head and thought it was only fitting that we buy a special place of our own. We hope that you fall in love with it, as we did, and make many happy memories with your family. Traveling with extended family? Our immediate neighbor next door also advertises on VRBO. #982512.
