Super cute cottage tucked away on a quiet street with water views from kitchen, living area, and dining room. Located at Milepost 13.5, "the calm ocean" is bright & spacious with an open floor plan and a well-equipped kitchen with vaulted ceiling.
After a short drive to the beach for the day, enjoy the amenities Nags Head Cove has to offer: take a dip in the soundfront pool, access the boat launch, try your luck fishing or crabbing off the pier across the street, or walk to the soundfront beach for a picture-perfect sunset.
"the calm ocean" is centrally located to restaurants and shops, including the Wright Brothers Memorial, Jeanette's Pier, Bodie Island Lighthouse, First Flight Adventure Park & Manteo.
The owners & their children have been vacationing in Nags Head for more than a decade. Their children have fond memories of staying at their aunt & uncle's Oceanside cottage in South Nags Head.
After a few days of rough surf, they cried out, "We want to go to the calm ocean!", which sounded like "the commotion" to mom & dad. Once mom & dad understood what their children meant, they headed back to the sound side beach access behind Jockey's Ridge State Park a/k/a "the calm ocean".
Days at the beach have been smooth sailing ever since!


COMMUNITY POOL FEE IS $3 PER DAY PER GUEST, $15 PER WEEK PER GUEST, $75 PER WEEK FOR UP TO SIX GUESTS. BOAT RAMP ACCESS AVAILABLE AT NO CHARGE.

OPEN FROM MAY 25TH TO SEPTEMBER 9TH IN 2018. FOR MORE DETAILS, CALL ONHC ASSOCIATION AT, PRICE /DATES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE.

Great stay!

Kim H. from Nottingham, MD recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jul, 2017
We had a great stay at The Calm Ocean! The view was fantastic and we enjoyed using the four provided kayaks, which we just carried across the street to the boat dock. It was so convenient. We also loved the layout of the house and the many sliding glass doors which offered a lot of natural light. It was also conveniently located to a grocery store and several restaurants, shops, and ice cream places. We took a short drive to the dunes one day, the Wright Brothers memorial another day, and also enjoyed the First Flight Adventure Park ropes course. It also wasn't far from the cute town of Manteo which we explored and where we also attended the Outer Banks Distillery tour. Jennette's pier was also a short drive and had ample parking with a short walk to the beach. The kids also loved the fort under the house! The showers were a bit dated, but the water pressure was great.

Great home

Michael F. from Mechanicsville, VA recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jul, 2016
This home was perfect for our family of 4. Right off of the community boat ramp you had a little inlet of water to enjoy off the deck & was a very short drive to the beach. Everything was close by and the home had everything we needed. Cutely decorated, showers had great pressure, AC worked beautifully after some HOT days on the beach. Had no issues & would recommend this house to anyone.

Vacation from Ohio

A Guest from Medina, OH recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Jul, 2016
We had an enjoyable stay and liked the location and the amenities at the house. The kayaks were a nice perk, as well as the bean bags and grill. The only suggested improvement would be to install wi-fi.

Manager Response

Great house

Bamba A. from Old Bridge, NJ recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in Aug, 2015
The house was everything we expected and needed. The location is perfect especially for my young ones , who most especially enjoyed riding our rented moped and the scooter. Having 4 kayaks was a big plus and saved us a lot of $$$ for rental. Taking them out to the bay was fun for everyone. Our 9 y/o confidently managed to be on his own. The short drive to the beach was not an inconvenience at all. We get to enjoy both the calm side of the ocean and the rough side as well. Perfect location. Thank you to the owners for sharing their house with us and to Carolina Shore rentals for their efficiency. And , when we reported that one of the kayaks had a hole , it was replaced within 2 hrs and even provided us a tandem kayak instead of a single one. We totally enjoyed our first OBX getaway and we shall be back and looking to stay at this property again.

Manager Response

Dear Bamba, Carolina Shores Vacation Rentals thanks you for taking the time to share your experience. We are glad you had a wonderful time on the kayaks! We hope to see you again next summer!

This is our first family vacation in 5 years!!! We realized as our first born went to college what limited time we had left. We've never visited the Outer Banks! We had a blast!! The Calm Ocean was everything we expected and needed. The location was peaceful, but close to amenities and the beach when needed. It had everything we needed! It was truly our home for a week,

It was nice having a house and room to relax.
It was centrally located for each of the family to explore and have a great time. Being able to cook at home may it seem like home:}

My family and I stayed at this home for a week in June 2015. It was very clean with a open floor plan. The house slept 7 of us very comfortably. The neighborhood was quiet and very accessible to many fun things in Nags Head. We loved Jockey's Ridge park in particular.
