Another great vacation at our "home away from home"...the Nest Egg. We've been going to the Outer Banks for 30+ years. There's something about crossing that bridge...instantly...you sigh...you're on vacation. All is good. We feel so fortunate to have found this lovely home...this is our 5th year there. The owners have made some really nice improvements this past year...spent many nights cooking in their remodeled kitchen. We enjoyed everything that the Outer banks had to offer...sun, sand, ocean breezes, dolphins playing in the surf, storms' vivid displays...all of it! Even though this is our 3rd year renting for 2 weeks, it still seems to go so fast. We'll miss waking up to the incredible sunrises and being lulled to sleep by the relaxing sound of the ocean. Thank you to the owners for sharing your home...and thank you to atlantic Realty for always making sure that everything is satisfactory and making check-in/check-out a breeze. Read more

Our stay at the Outer Banks was very nice. The house was fine. It was clean and the kitchen was stocked well with kitchen supplies. However, we did have multiple issues with the lock entry code which meant several calls to atlantic Realty. The problems were resolved each time (3 times) but it still left my family with the fear of being locked out after hours and having to call a locksmith. I believe this was an organizational issue rather than a house itself problem. All in all I would still recommend this home to my friends. Read more

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments; we appreciate both your time and the feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed your vacation and thank you for choosing Atlantic Realty for your accommodations. However, we regret the keyless entry issues that you experienced. It is a beautiful thing when all goes smoothly…you are emailed the code, go directly to your house once you receive the text that your property is ready, put the code in, and enter your vacation home, all without having to stop by either of our offices. Unfortunately, it is a nightmare, as you well know, when this doesn’t go smoothly! This is the first season with our new ‘Glad To Have You’ Mobile APP and while this is exciting and ‘cutting edge,’ we are discovering some glitches that are occurring in the system. We anticipate quick resolution once they occur, but our goal is a flawless system, with as few issues as possible when incorporating new technology! We also like to minimize any ‘human error’ and offer our apologies for either or both that occurred. We hope to see you on your next OBX vacation!

My family has been 'at home' at The Nest Egg for many summer vacations. Wonderful location and homey atmosphere make our yearly OBX vacations feel like we have come home! Realty service a pleasure to deal with, and the owners of The Nest Egg always remember us at Christmas with a great 'beach' Christmas card. Can't wait for July 2013! Read more

Our vacation "home away from home"
Left on 03/28/2013 for a stay in September 2012 | wmstchic
Our family has traveled annually to the OBX for over twenty years. We've stayed in 4 different atlantic Realty Properties and this one has won our hearts. Great location, amenities and beach access. The southern Nags Head address gives us the peace and quiet we seek and yet we aren't that far away from shopping, restaurants, etc. The house comfortably sleeps six and the views of the ocean from the main and top floor, while obstructed, are still the highlight of the house. Atlantic Realty is wonderful to deal with and is their service is the reason we are repeat customers. Read more

The Nest Egg is truly our home away from home. We have rented this cottage four times now and enjoy every minute. If you like a short walk to the beach, an ocean view, and don't want to break the bank doing it, then this is the place for you. It is meant for a small group who do most of their activities outside...i.e., no gamerooms or other places to escape from the group. Read more

The property was ideally located, I wanted quiet, with good ocean views. The variety of decks allowed enjoyment of the outdoors any time of the day, out of the sun. The property was well equiped and clean. Ar was very helpful and quick to respond to any questions. Read more

The Nest Egg was a very comfortable and well kept home. It was very clean and in a good locattion. The rooms were spacious and the cottage was very clean compared to most I have stayed in. It had all the amenities you could ask for and it allowed pets. My family and friends had a great time. I will stay there again if I can.

Another great week at the beach. The house has always been a great place to stay and the location is perfect. Our week was fun-filled and relaxing except for the smmoke from the mainland that drifted our way a couple days. But what can you do about the wind - enjoy it!

Pretty good place for small group (we had 4 adults) + two small dogs. The neighborhood has a walkway that was perfect for walking dogs. The beach was convenient. The house was very comfortable, had all the necesessary stuff in the kitchen plus cable and wifi. Definitely a pet friendly place.

We've stayed at the Nest Egg for over three years now. The location, access to the beach and the house itself are the driving factors in our return each year. It's become our second home for our Outer Banks retreat each year. We love the Outerbanks and love the Nest Egg.

We had rented a condo in Sea Oats Villa for year, but our schedule changed in 2009 and so we took a chance on the Nest Egg. Fell in love with it and returned in 2010. Had a great time again, so rebooked for 2011. It is the perfect location and house for our family. The kids love it too.

At the beach

Excellent location on a mostly full time resident street, two houses off the ocean. A/C needs help, set on 75, temperature slowly rose to 80 just about every day. Chairs in the living room are very uncomfortable as is the king size mattress. Kitchen well stocked with all cooking needs.
Great Home to Stay In

This home is very nice and we really enjoy the beach at this location. It is pet friendly, but no smell of pets ever being in the home. Linens are provided, however, we didn't get the linens for the sleep sofa and we were not able to use the sleep sofa. Next time we will ask for linens for the sleep sofa so that the kids can watch TV in the living room.

Good location - quiet and good beach access. Good view from top balcony, limited view from lower balcony. Size of house was fine. The teens would have preferred more Tv's with Dvd's. Only 2 Tv's - 1 with a DVD player and 1 with VHS.
Awesome as always !!

My family has been vacationing in OBX since 1993 and we have stayed at The Nest Egg many, many times. We love the house and the fact that it is so close to the beach! It has become our home away from home. I recommend the Schmitt's Nest Egg to become your Nest Egg, but please allow my family that certain week we love to spend at "the egg" !! Everything you want or need is there - all you need is your family/friends! Check out our entries in the guest book way back from 1995 - you will see we loved it then just as much.

This is a great house for a small family...would not recommend it for small children (steep stairs). We have rented this house for several years and have enjoyed our stay. Owners recently installed new carpet which really helped with the pet odor. Does not have the extras that a lot of Outer Banks homes have...but is perfect if you just want to read a book and relax.

We've been renting the Nest Egg off and on since 1996, and it is still the best little cottage at the beach. The ocean view from either of the decks cannot be topped! The owners have done wonderful job making improvements over the years, the Nest Egg stays in great condition. We also love that it is in South Nags Head, where it is a little quieter. We didn't have to drive far to go out to dinner, just 1 minute from great places like the Lone Cedar, Tale of the Whale, Sugar Creek, or my favorite was take-out from the Sugar Shack!!

We've been going to Nags Head and the Outer Banks for many years and have always had great times there. This year was no exception. The weathers was as expected. The local restuarants were very good. The beach house we have rented for so long that we think of it as our second home, was clean and comfy and close to all the local places we engoy. The realty folks were great again and we will probably be back many times.

Stayed here right after Easter. The house was very clean and close to the beach. A particularly nice view of the ocean can be seen from the upstairs bedroom with a partial view from the dining room. Would certainly rent this property again.

Loved this house. Good view of ocean. Will rent it again in 2010. It's our 25th Wedding Anniversary this year and we're taking a cruise...otherwise, would definitely rent this house this year. Good for small family and pets. Very quiet area and neighbors are very friendly.
