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.

I'm so glad I found this cottage! It was a great fit for my friend and I and our two growing teenage boys. Any questions or concerns I had prior to arrival and during our stay, the owner was very responsive and helpful. Definitely would love to rent this cottage again :)

An Old Cottage Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter and I spent a graduation weekend at Sea Spray Cottage #1. This is an old cottage, surrounded by 4 others, all probably built in the 1950s. It had front and back porches for visiting and/or reading on hot afternoons or evenings. The living room had dark wainscoting and comfy overstuffed chairs and a sofa. Books and magzines were on a shelf for our reading pleasure. The living room opened onto a large kitchen with a round table for eating, a huge fridge, gas stove, dishwasher and all the expected and some unexpected appliances. The beds were comfy and sleep-inducing, except that one has to bring one's own bedding and towels. Outside in back were a washer and dryer for the whole complex -- free! We enjoyed our weekend together there and would recommend it to any family who hopes to vacation along the beach on the OBX!
