Amenities / Description
Summer Winds, an 11-bedroom oceanfront rental home located in Nags Head on the Outer Banks, is perfect for family reunions or special gatherings. With three floors of living, accessible by elevator, Summer Winds offers something for everyone!
Start your day by watching a beautiful sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean from the top floor living room or outside deck. Sit at the breakfast bar and watch the waves and gulls - or even a passing school of porpoise - while coffee and breakfast is being made in our fully equipped kitchen with its two refrigerators, two ovens, two range tops, two dishwashers and microwave, toasters, coffee makers and blenders.
If you feel the need to stay in touch with the outer world, watch the morning news on the flat screen TV in the living room or connect to the Internet on your laptop via our wireless Internet connection. Or if some morning exercise is in order, swim in the 22' X 10' outdoor pool, or work out in our indoor exercise room located off the Theater Room on the first floor. But if the beach beckons to you, walk over our dune walk to our newly restored beach and hunt for seashells along the tide's edge or take a brisk walk along our white beach.
However you spend the day, Summer Winds is an excellent place to unwind from the day's activities. Make a refreshing drink at one of our three wet bars and soak in the outdoor hot tub. Have dinner in our oceanfront dining room and watch the ocean colors change as the sun sets in the West.
Finish the evening with a game of pool or Foosball in our second-floor Recreation Room while watching two flat screen TVs. Or play a game of poker or bridge at our game table located in the Recreation Room. Or if a move is more to your liking, relax in our 17 recliner seat Theater Room watching your favorite flick on the 120" screen.
Summer Winds is perfect for your vacation to the Outer Banks. Centrally located and well-appointed, this 11 bedroom oceanfront home is ideal for large family reunions or special gatherings.

September 2020 StayMeghan
We had such a good time! The house was very clean upon arrival. It was much more spacious than we imagined and they used the space perfectly, we never felt crowded. Parking was a little cramped with having to share a driveway. We had 6 cars and the other house had 7 so it was tight but manageable. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots, pans, utensils etc. There wasn’t a single thing that we needed that wasn’t available in the kitchen. However, as stated in previous reviews, there were about 4 teaspoons and a million large spoons that are about the size of serving spoons so I recommend bringing plastic ones. The left refrigerator smelled like fish the entire week. We even cleaned it out again the day we arrived but that smell never went away. It also didn’t actually get cold until the next day around mid morning. We used it as a drink fridge so no actual food was lost. The right refrigerator worked and smelled fine. Also, having 2 of everything made cooking and cleaning so easy. When we arrived one of the AC units wasn’t working and 2 bedrooms on the middle floor were extremely hot. They immediately sent someone out. It turned out the unit needed to be replaced though and since that couldn’t happen until the following day, they installed window units. The rooms and bathrooms themselves were spacious and clean. The game room was great. The pool sticks need new tips though, there are only 2 that aren’t chipped and there is no chalk for them either. The theater was awesome. I believe there was only a DVD player hooked up but we brought our fire cube so we could stream movies and shows and it worked great. The recliners are comfortable but several are broken. There’s also a big ice maker on the first floor which was great for filling coolers. It was nice not having to run out and buy ice everyday. The elevator made life easy too. The pool and hot tub were great. They had them cleaned mid week which was good because a lot of sand got in them. I really liked that every level of the deck had a gate that had to be unlocked from the outside so the little kids couldn’t open them and accidentally fall in the pool or escape to the beach. The house is also very conveniently located near grocery stores, shopping, restaurants, and attractions. There’s even a little burger and ice cream shop at the end of the driveway which was a hit with the kids. I would absolutely book this house again for our next trip.
Meghan, Great to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay with us. We will be sure to check the kitchen stock, pool cues and the fridge to be sure all is in working order. We look forward to seeing you next year!
Great time at the beach!Wayne S. from Catonsville, MD - Maryland
This home has a lot going for it. The space is well utilized with 8 Master BR's being substantially equal, which helps with assigning rooms. The two dormitory rooms were also perfect; one for girls and one for boys. The Theater room is terrific; great for kids on a rainy day Great room and kitchen have maximized their square footage and the 3 tables accommodated our 12 kids and 17 adults well. The kitchen is spacious and well supplied with dishes, pots and pans and lots of kitchen gadgets. The two large side by side refrigerator freezers and additional ice makers were more than sufficient for us! Two large ranges and ovens made cooking crowd size meals easier. Location is very good with restaurants and activities close by. We really enjoyed the ocean view and the convenience of the walkway across the dunes from the 2nd level. There are a number of maintenance tasks that need to be attended to improve service to the customers and provide ROI for the owners. Screws and nails need to be reset in the decking. a/c had to be repaired twice during our one week stay. Air return grills were clogged with dust which affects air quality and air conditioning efficiency. A second microwave would improve convenience for reheating and defrosting foods. Upstairs MB11 needs to have sink stopper reconnected to valve stem. At least one of the comforters on the second level had food stains when we arrived. Washing Machines have mold probably due to people leaving them closed, rather than open, and need to be sanitized. Unfortunately most people due not know how to care for front loading clothes washers. Teaspoons have depleted over the years and need to be restocked. Labels inside cabinets and drawers would help renters return items to the correct location.
Hi Wayne, thank you so much for your survey. It sounds like overall Summer Winds served your family well! We appreicate you bringing the maintenance and housekeeping items to our attention. We have reviewed them with our team and are working to get as much of these items taken care of as possible. We hope you all had a great time and we look forward to hosting your next Outer Banks vacation!
Great house that needed lots of little TLC by AugustEly from Lansdale, PA
This was a great house with good space and beds for many. Great location on a great beach. We found lots of little items that needed fixing upon arrival and they were addressed quickly through the app. The kitchen was oddly stocked. Many large pots but not a single storage container. Many large spoons but only a handful of teaspoons. Very few plastic cups for the younger generation. Overall a great stay.
Very fine house for an 18-20-person rentalKathleen L. from Chapel Hill, NC
Certainly can recommend this house for a large group with different ages, sleeping arrangements, from older (oldest 78) to younger (youngest 4). Theatre room and poker table proved very popular! Refrigerator(s) on each floor were very helpful. Parking for more than about 6 cars is a bit iffy, if the folks next door are parking more like 9 -- using up one-half of the "shared driveway."
Loved this houseJulie C. from Fallston , Md
This is a beautiful house. The view is breathtaking. We had trouble with one of the air conditioners. They were very fast to fix the problem. We were very impressed. It was perfect for our big family vacation. We will definitely rent again.
March 2019 StayMonica J. from Plainfield
Thank you for making this an amazing trip for my extended family. This was the perfect home for a perfect vacation. It fit 20 comfortably and everyone was hesitant to leave. From the cleanliness to the amenities, this house exceeded our expectations. I am looking forward to returning!
September 2018 StayFlossie J. from Homer City
This house is beautiful and functional! Best equipped house Ive ever stayed in and have been vacationing in OBX since 1960. Parking is adequate and local cannot be better! Would love to come back but paying half before finishing our vacation just isnt possible! This is the 1st house we wanted to return!
August 2018 StaySean & Heather K. from Long Island, New York
What more can you ask for?! The beach front property is some of the best youre gonna get especially for the money. An abundance of rooms and beds as well as comfortable places to lounge and relax make this little hideaway a perfect place to catch some rest and relaxation. Its location right in the heart of Nags Head means any and everything is within minutes from the house leaving endless possibilities for participation in fun group or individual activities.
June 2018 StayHelen Y. from Pinetops, NC
We really enjoyed our stay. The house could've been cleaner. Sheets were sour. Nails sticking out of deck that need hammered in. one dishwasher did not work. Other than that perfect house for 25 people.

We are so sorry you had issues with your linens, in the future always feel free to contact our office if there is ever anything we can do to make your stay more enjoyable while you are still here. Please know we have also shared your comments with our team, to make sure they hammer down any loose nails on the deck, and also make sure the dishwasher is working as it should. Your feedback is much appreciated, and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
May 2018 StayJoseph G. from Cortland
We had an absolutely wonderful time at this amazing house on the OBX. It was spacious and very VERY clean on our arrival. We have been coming to Nags Head for the past 4 summer and this house has, by FAR, been the best. The pool is clean, the hot tub is clean and the movie room is awesome, such a neat bonus on top of an already fabulous home. We truly enjoyed our time here and will definitely be back.
