Recent Nags Head guest reviews

This is our second time staying at Nauti By Nature. We love the conveniences of staying here….being steps away from the quiet, private beach and beautiful pool, being only short drives to other OBX towns, being within walking distance to some restaurants, ice cream shops, and stores. Accommodations are so roomy with a king bed in each bedroom, full kitchen where we had every appliance and utensil we needed to make and serve meals. The central air was a welcome feature after coming in from the July heat. The space is also very kid friendly (safe area, perfect pool, short distances to beach and pool, condo is stocked with puzzles and games which our 11 and 5 yr olds loved!). Both times we’ve stayed at this condo, it has been a very clean and welcoming space. I’ve seen some reviews complaining about the sand dune between the condo and the beach. This is the Outer Banks, dunes everywhere! Not being able to see the beach didn’t bother us at all. It’s mere steps to a view…so easy! We will be back to Nauti By Nature for sure! It is our favorite stay in the Outer Banks!

Nags Head is a seaside town along North Carolina's Outer Banks, a strand of barrier islands popular for their beautiful beaches and outdoor activity. Nags Head got its curious name when early settlers tied lanterns to horses’ necks and walked them along the dunes at night. Unassuming captains would mistake the horses for boats, run aground, and have their cargo seized. 

Where is Nags Head?

The southernmost town before crossing the Marc Basnight Bridge to Hatteras Island, Nags Head is one of the most popular towns in the Outer Banks.
