If you are looking for a unique vacation opportunity where you do not have to invite 25 of your closest friends and family members, Sea Spray Cottages is the place for you. The location is ideal, Mile Post 11.7, just south of Nags Head Pier and just north of Snow Bird's Soft Serve Ice Cream; you will be centrally located to many attractions.

Built in 1950, the cottages provide guests with a feel of what vacation was like on the Outer Banks during a less complicated era. The cottages are equipt with modern conveniences that will make your visit relaxing and enjoyable. Linens and towels not provided. Check in is at 3 and check out is at 10:00.

Our family use to vacation in this unit so it enjoys many personal touches that result from our living there for 2 years. The open floor plan is unique and lends itself to relaxed and enjoyable stay. We have also opened this cottage up to nightly stays, even during the summer, which is also unique to the outerbanks.

If you find that the dates you are looking for are booked try our other cottages located on the grounds or located in south Nags Head, see the link to owners website below in the lower left side of this page.

Our rates include the 12.75% occupancy taxes and are net the 3% cash/check discount. The pet fee (dogs only) is $50 per pet/ per stay and the cleaning fee is $50. These costs are assessed on stays less than a week. For stays a week or more, the pet fee and cleaning is included.

About John Vollino

My wife had been vacationing on the Outer Banks of North Carolina since she was an infant and introduced me to the area when we were dating. We purchased our first vacation cottage a year after we were married in 1991 and purchase the Sea Spray Cottage Court in 2007. The cottages were built in 1950; there are four in total.

John Vollino purchased this cottage in 2007

Why John Vollino chose Nags Head

The cottages were slated for demolition and sale of the bare lots. We purchased the cottage court to save them from the wrecking ball. Our intent is to preserve and revitalize a little piece of old Nags Head so that we and others can enjoy a bit of history and vacation in a comfortable and uncomplicated way.

What makes this cottage unique

At the Sea Spray Cottages you will not have to vacation with 25 of your closest friends and family. Given the size of the cottages, you can enjoy your vacation with your immediate family or with a few close friends at a very affordable price. There is plenty to do in Nags Head including enjoying the beach, which is across the street. Cottage #1 has a large comfortable front porch were you can sit, enjoy your favorite beverage and watch the world go by.

Great getaway for four friends and a tiny chihuahua

  • 5 out of 5
We found the property without any problem - it was very clean and well maintained. The beds were very comfortable and all the electrical things (wifi, TV, etc.) worked great. The natural area right in front of the cabin might need a grass trimming, but that did not bother us too much. I had contacted the owner previous to our visit and he was very helpful in answering all the questions and sending a list of recommended restaurants, etc. I especially liked the fenced-in backyard for a dog run - only problem was that my little dog slipped right through the fence, but only once. (Suggestion:Maybe a slat or chicken wire across the bottom might keep all the tiny dogs from escaping). We also enjoyed sitting on the porch and talking to the neighbors. I would not only recommend this property to friends and relatives, I will have some come with me on my next stay. Definitely will come back to this cozy cabin!

A great getaway for couples with dogs

The Sea Spray Cottage was just what we wanted: close to the beach, good amenities, and allowed us to bring our dogs. No complaints here!

Great Property, Cozy, and RIGHT on the beach!

  • 5 out of 5
This cottage was perfect for 5 adults for an extended weekend. Everything was in working order, and the WIFI was fast! Loved the covered patio in the back for a nice dinner!

We will definitely return!

Worth every penny!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed the weekend with a couple of friends and our pup, the cottage was immaculately clean with a rustic outer banks feel that you cant get from one of the monster rentals. The water pressure in the shower was unreal it made you want to stay in the shower all morning. The backyard is fenced so you can put your dog outside and let him get some sun without worrying. The owners are extremely friendly and accommodating, I would give this place 6 stars if I could. Thanks for a great weekend!

Spring break fun!

  • 5 out of 5
The house was so cute! And there was plenty of room for everyone. Everything was very comfortable and a lot bigger than it seemed in the pictures! Everyone had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the entire stay! And the fact that it was one story made it easily accessible for both of my grandparents.
