About John Vollino

My wife, Laura Lee Garrett, had been vacationing on the Outer Banks of North Carolina since she was an infant and introduced me, John Vollino, 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 Outer Banks

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.

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Quaint cottage with all the modern conveniences we needed. Clean and comfortable! An easy walk across the street to the wide beach. So happy it was pet friendly. John was accommodating with any of our needs!

Idyllic beach bungalow

  • 5 of 5

What a GREAT place this is -- a cosy, traditional beach get away. The cottage has everything you could want, even down to a couple of ample dog bowls for your canine friend. Perfect place to vege, on or off season.

The beach access is just a 3 minute walk down Route 12. I followed the owner's suggestions, and had dinner at Blue Moon Grill about a mile down the road. While it's nothing great to look at, the food is outstanding. I loved the southern shrimp and Gouda grits so much, I had it both Friday and Saturday nights. And the bar tender is a talented mixer who made me one of the best citrus martinis I've ever had.

John, the owner, is personable and responsive. Had a great time here, and recommend it highly.

A Comfy Stay

  • 5 of 5

This cottage met all of our expectations. It was cute, cozy and comfy. We found everything we needed inside our little retreat.

We had reserved our cottage for one date and needed to make a change, John was very accommodating and made the change without any questions. It is really a breath of fresh air to know that people care about you and are willing to make changes without making it a real ordeal.

Our family will definitely return to this cottage. It was clean, and reminded us of our younger years at the Outer Banks with that older beach feel.

This cottage had character which is what we were looking for, not the new modern style which is everywhere.

We can't wait until our next OBX get away.
