About Michael VanCuren
My wife and I have lived on the Outer Banks for over 30 years. We love the beach and own several rental properties. Of all our properties, Sails Commission is our favorite and the one we use as our home away from home. You may ask why we need a home away from home while living on the Outer Banks. Once you have spent your vacation at this house you will see why. We live a simple life and this cottage is our refuge from the real world. Although the cottage is rented most of the time, we love the Outer Banks in the fall and winter. So when the cottage is empty we can usually be found sitting on the deck enjoying the beautiful Atlantic.
Michael VanCuren purchased this Cottage in 1999
Why Michael VanCuren chose South Nags Head
Once you stay at Sails Commission, you will wonder why you stayed anywhere else and will want to return It is a great location and the cottage is perfect for families that don't want to travel with large groups. But if you are looking for a lot of fancy amenities this cottage is not for you. It is priced so that the smaller families can be right on the beach, without the hassle of packing up and driving to a beach access.
What makes this Cottage unique
Ocean Views, Ocean Views and more Ocean Views.... Beach, Beach, and more Beach. It is the reason you come to the Outer Banks to begin with. But the cottage is so much more. With fantastic views from every window in the cottage, the cottage is comfortable, clean and well maintained. The kitchen is fully equipped for those families that just want to hang out and prepare their own meals. You may even get lucky and catch a view of an occasional whale traveling north. There is a parade of dolphins most every day and the sunrises and stars in the night skies are amazing.

This was our second time renting this cottage. We love this place and hope to return again. This cottage is right on the water and has everything needed to enjoy a great vacation. It is very clean and well kept. Michael (the owner) was great on keeping us updated about hurricane Florence as to when we could arrive, so we were able to enjoy a wonderful vacation.
Thank you for your review, but most importantly being a return guest. Your compliments are very gracious. I look forward to your next return and hopefully there will be no interruptions from hurricanes. Until the next time, all the best.
Perfect for our group!
Sails Commission was the perfect place for our girlfriends' getaway at the OBX. The cottage was just as represented on the website. We loved the large upstairs living/dining/kitchen open concept area and that it walked right out to the oceanfront balcony. Everything worked well including the WIFI and DVD player that we used. I had not previously stayed at South Nags Head so it was a pleasant change to stay there for me. Close to restaurants that we tried and loved such a Black Pelican and the Blue Moon, We even went to the close-by Bodie Island Lighthouse one day. Michael was very accessible and helpful and even got the cottage ready for an early check in. Thank you, Michael. I will definitely consider Sails Commission on my next group trip to OBX!
Thank you for your review and kind words. Your greatest compliment is a return visit. Your review is most helpful to future guest and recommendations or restaurants and tourist sites is a plus. I am glad you and your friends enjoyed the cottage and it was everything you expected. Until your next trip, All the best.
Great house and location! Ocean views are perfect. Very easy and convenient access to the beach..right on the ocean! Great outside shower and the kids loved the foot washing station! Owner is very outgoing and attentive. Very helpful! Thank you so much for helping our family have a great vacation!!
Thank you for your review. I am glad you and your family enjoyed your visit. Yes the foot wash is a new feature added this summer. I hope it helps reduce sand in the cottage and make your stay more comfortable. I hope you will return again, all the best.
Excellent vacation home to experience the OBX.
Beautiful ocean site. Home nicely decorated and very clean. Instructions posted on home management. Owner Mike very attentive/receptive when answering questions. Highly recommended.
Thank you for your review and kind words. I am glad you enjoyed the cottage. I hope you and your family will return again soon.
It does not get closer to the beach, very clean, great owner
AAA+, we stayed a week mid July 2018 in Mike's house, he is a perfect host, helped with all our needs, very friendly and supportiv.. We spent my wifes Birthday there, comming from Germany and did get way more than the description of the house will give to us. Two balconys, the lower one has shade during the day, the other later in the day. To many Details to describe. See the dolfins from the balcony, follow the pelicans in the sky, watch the birds at the beach, enjoy your morning coffee in the dunes, see the sun rise. Direcly first row on the sandy beach. Very clean, very well equipt home and kittchen. From the beginning of the booking till the end of the stay perfect. No linnen included, also towels but easy to rent. Hope we can come back very soon. Sorry for my mistakes in tiping, would like to see your German. Thank you Mike for all The Sturm's
Thank you for your review and kind words. I am happy you enjoyed your visit. You certainly had the perfect beach weather. I wish I had known about your wife's birthday. What a special trip to celebrate. No mistake about tipping. Actually I do not encourage it and my housekeeper does not expect tips. I have been to Germany. December of 1993 my wife and I were there. We visited Munich and enjoyed the Christmas Festival, spent Christmas Eve in Triberg, Christmas Day in Cologne, The Rhine River area is amazing. Too much fun to mention here. Most of all I loved the Bakeries.
I hope you can return soon and be sure to mention my cottage to your friends. .
Pretty much perfect.
The location within OBX, right on the beach, and a well maintained property makes it perfect for my family of 6. We have stayed there twice and will again.
Thank you for your review, but most importantly being a returning guest. The best compliment you can give me is wanting to return to my cottage for your vacations to the Outer Banks. Until your next trip, all the best.
Although my cottage may be considered off the beaten path, it is still close to all major attractions such as The Lost Colony Outdoor Drama, Bodie Island Lighthouse, Pirates Cove Marina and much more. You are also in close driving distance to many great restaurants and shopping. The convenient pedestrian path at the end of the driveway is great for bikers, joggers, or just a casual walk.
