Not far from the center of activities around Nags Head, on North Carolina's Outer Banks, our comfortable four bedroom vacation cottage is a short walk to the village of Duck in one direction and to our community's private beach access in the other. There is an ocean view from the sun deck. PETS ARE NO LONGER ALLOWED. THERE IS NO LONGER A HOT TUB.

New for 2011 is a 46 inch flat screen TV and Blu-ray with Instant View Netflix Movies over the Internet! We have new flat screen TVs in King, Queen, and Standard bedrooms, all with DVDs. Bunk room still has a tube TV with VCR for the drawer full of children's movies. When it goes to Tube TV Heaven, we'll replace it with a flat screen.

We worked on some projects in the winter of 2007. New hardwood floors have been installed in the upper level kitchen and great room, the main stairway, and the lower level hallway. Linda has expanded her herb garden which so many enjoy have enjoyed. All three exterior staircases have been replaced along with the upper level decking. We had gates put in at the top of each deck staircase to discourage tots and pets from tumbling down the stairs. In fall of 2008, finally, we got a dishwasher that really cleans the dishes. It has THREE WHIRLYGIGS!!! And one of our favorite projects was having new cushions made (February 2009) for the living room furniture covered with Sunbrella fabric for hopefully easy cleaning. We also purchased brand new really good mattresses for the king and queen beds in February of 2009, then a new mattress for the standard bed in the spring of 2010. Our spring, 2009, project was replacing the picnic table on the screened porch with four chairs, a couple of side tables, and a cheery little area rug. The living and dining rooms got new rugs for the 2010 season. And the big project for 2011 was new carpeting for all's BEAUTIFUL! And of course we'll do our annual pillow shopping spree before each season. In January of 2012, we replaced the screened porch with an all weather porch with 11 windows! Existing furniture from the living room will go out there, and brand new living room furniture is being delivered tomorrow, Oct 31, 2012.

Amenities include: 4 bedrooms (1K,1Q, 1Dbl, 1 bunk set + 1 twin), 2 1/2 baths, a well-equipped kitchen including a cupboard stocked with Penzey's herbs and spices (all new spring of 2010), free wireless internet access, a cool screened porch off the dining room, an enclosed outside shower shower head for washing sand from tots, laundry room with washer and dryer, beach chairs and toys, and games and puzzles. Shopping, restaurants, and the new Duck Town Park and mile long boardwalk are within walking distance.
