About Amy

We're the Underwood's. David, Amy, Jean and Lynn. We live in Tidewater, Virginia and have been vacationing in the Outer Banks since 1966 - it's one of our favorite places on earth!

Why Amy chose Outer Banks

The South Nags Head area has always been a favorite. The laid-back atmosphere laced with history and boasting a couple of iconic piers make it a wonderful location. And of course - you can't beat the easy access to the beach!

What makes this cottage unique

Stay in a cottage with the charms of Old Nags Head. Great proximity to the beach, local attractions, fantastic caretakers - Mike and Lisa!

Guestbook comments from the manager

This was lovely little cottage, perfect for a couple or a small family. The location was perfect and had easy access to the beach and restaurants. It was very well maintained with all the amenities of home.

Perfect weekend in a great cottage!

  • 4 of 5

This was a last minute booking for me and I'm honestly hesitant to write much here. Not because this was a bad stay or a bad owner, there is nothing I can really say negative. This is like finding a secret spot and selfishly trying to keep it so! If you are hovering over "Book Now" - DO IT. If not, you are going to miss out on the best recharge week/weekend you've had in a long time. As a lifelong trekker to the OBX I can tell you the owners have put a lot of thought into "your stay". The cottage is well appointed, tastefully decorated, conveniently located and if you dont spend a night outside on the porch you have short changed yourself. Thanks again for a great time and helping us hit the "reset button".

Charming, pretty and comfy!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay. It was clean, comfortable & had a lovely decor. It was big enough for us and our puppy to spend some quality time together. We celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary & were greeted with a bottle of champagne & a lovely note from the caretakers & owners when we entered the cottage. Our puppy had a blast looking out the window from the back of the couch & the side window from the chair. She "woofed" her approval. We hoe to stay again in the future when time permits. Thank you!

Very cozy, comfortable and well equipped small cottage.

  • 4 of 5

Check in/out was a breeze. Great location across from beach and very near recommendable restaurants. Sitting areas outside were enjoyable - nice touch with the patio lights! Wi-fi and TV were great compliments to the cottage and came in very handy for evening entertainment and researching area venues and attractions. Would suggest upgrading from basic cable to offer more for the evenings, especially in the colder seasons.

Only notable shortcomings were the noises emanating from refrigerator and heater unit mounted above the bed, but they weren't really too distracting or bothersome. The king bed was very comfortable after long active days and delicious local meals and libations!

All-in a great value for getting away!!

Sweet cottage

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable and compact but plenty big enough for two. It had everything we needed and, best of all, was pet friendly, Owners could not have been nicer.

Wonderful Cottage!

  • 4 of 5

Our first visit to OBX was wonderful, particularly because Amy's cottage worked out perfectly for my wife, me and our two pups... very cute and comfortable accommodations... short walk to the beach... easily accessible to all that the barrier islands have to offer. New A/C unit worked beautifully ... only watchout... burrs in the grasses in the adjoining lot when the pups were outside. Thanks again.

Generally ok

  • 3 of 5

The cottage was cute and big enough for two adults and one child. It was clean and in a really good location for beach and sound access. The air conditioner was very loud and vibrated the wall that the bed is against which made it difficult to sleep. That made the stay a lot less relaxing than I would have liked. The cottage also did not come with a kitchen sponge or more than half a role of toilet paper. These small items would have made a big difference to our satisfaction. No one likes to go to the store for basic necessities while on vacation.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking time to review Kemp & Olive Cottage. We value your feedback. We do have excellent caretakers that take pride in the cleanliness of the cottage and of course, the location is wonderful! I am sorry the AC wall unit disturbed you. We replaced the unit the following week with a new super-quiet split system. Your feedback was very helpful, thank you! We are happy to provide the starter roll of toilet tissue and paper towels upon arrival. As always, our caretakers, Mike and Lisa and I are committed to an excellent experience during your stay. We're just a phone call away!
