Ocean side property with a guest friendly a… – vrbo 1940 gas station photos


We purchased the property in April of 2016. We were drawn in by it’s potential and layout of the living space as well as the large lot, at that time the rear part of which was only accessible as a small fenced in pool deck. We had seen too many of these over the previous three years we spent looking for a place we could make our own. All the rear yard which had previously been unused could make this house a home.

In three months we cleared 80% of the balance of the lot, removed the old fence around the pool deck, added a hot tub pad off the pool deck with a 8 person hot tube, installed a new fence to add a large backyard with a picnic table, fire pit and a hammock on a permanent post frame. We also added an outside lift to bring your luggage or groceries up as well as down at the push of a button. Inside we removed all the old small tube TVs and put a 42" LCD flat screen in each room. We removed most of the wall hangings and art and provided hangings and art to let you know you are at the outer banks and the beach is a short walk away. The clients who did find us in the end of 2016 were very happy and could not say enough.

We are not finished. Now in the fall of 2016 we have removed the wet bar on the lower level and installing all new cabinets, base and wall. Adding 24" of counter length a full size sink, mid sized refrigerator and a microwave shelf to make this a true kitchenette. Steps from the pool. On the upper level we are replacing the outdated fireplace with a modern low profile unit and redesigning the home entertainment area to accommodate a 65" 4K LED TV and a high end surround sound system. We really want you to feel at home with all a true home has to offer.

This home has over 2900 sq ft inside on a 15,000 sq ft lot with room to move or not. Five private bedrooms with private baths. The upper level has a large gathering room and well supplied kitchen a master bedroom and 1 and 1/2 baths. Decks front and rear. You’ll find 3 bedrooms on the middle level all with queen beds, private baths and deck access front and rear. The first level has a gathering area with a kitchenette, a bedroom with a pyramid bunk and a full bath. Just out the back door is the saltwater pool with LED colored lighting, a new 8 person hot tub, gas grill, charcoal grill, picnic table, a fire pit and a hammock.

A short walk to the beach and Nags Head Fishing Pier. Shopping right around the corner. Good restaurants north or south. Fine or casual dining. Water sports in the ocean or sound.

All you need to enjoy yourself and your family on your vacation. View more

We had been looking for a rental property in the Outer Banks for several years. We also have one in Chincoteague Virginia which we have been renting on VRBO since 2010. We have been coming to the Outer Banks since our kids were young. We have pictures of them terrorizing the beach in their diapers. After years of looking at properties with no room around their pool or an unacceptable number of bathrooms we found this home. I actually saw it before Kim and convinced her to make an offer before she saw it. Once she did we both knew it had potential. We are now updating it to be the type of vacation rental we would like to visit. The lot was a jungle when we purchased and we are converting it into a playground for young and not so young alike. Expanding the usable area of the lot to give you room to move or not to move. This meant removing the 2003 4 person hot tub and the 5′ privacy fence at the edge of the pool deck. Opening up the back yard and making it family friendly with an 8 person hot tub, fire pit and swings for young and old alike all the time keeping extra room for throwing a football, baseball or corn whole. Removing the old steel park style grille and providing a good size gas grille. As well as providing a lift for your convenience. Inside we removed all the 17" 1998 tube TVs and installing wall mounted 39" LED TVs in the 4 bedrooms on the mid and upper level and a 32" in the bedroom on the lower level. All of the $15 low back resin chairs were sent to the dump and replaced with real wooded rockers. Memory foam topper were added to each of the queen and king bed. After a hard day at the beach you need a nice comfortable place to retreat to. This is what we want to provide.
