About John Vollino

My wife, Laura Lee Garrett, had been vacationing on the Outer Banks of North Carolina since she was an infant and introduced me, John Vollino, to the area when we were dating. We purchased our first vacation cottage a year after we were married in 1991 and purchase the Sea Spray Cottage Court in 2007. The cottages were built in 1950; there are four in total.

John Vollino purchased this cottage in 2007

Why John Vollino chose Nags Head

The cottages were slated for demolition and sale of the bare lots. We purchased the cottage court to save them from the wrecking ball. Our intent is to preserve and revitalize a little piece of old Nags Head so that we and others can enjoy a bit of history and vacation in a comfortable and uncomplicated way.

What makes this cottage unique

At the Sea Spray Cottages you will not have to vacation with 25 of your closest friends and family. Given the size of the cottages, you can enjoy your vacation with your immediate family or with a few close friends at a very affordable price. There is plenty to do in Nags Head including enjoying the beach, which is across the street. Cottage #1 has a large comfortable front porch were you can sit, enjoy your favorite beverage and watch the world go by.

Best stay ever!

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect. We loved the the cottage and everything within it. John was a prefect host. I only wish he would consider renting his one bedroom on a permanent basis seeing as how we will be relocating to Nags Head within the next six months. I recommend this location to anyone looking a fabulous place to stay while visiting our beautiful coastal areas.

rustic but convenient with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

This is my fourth time staying at one of these cottages and I plan to be back again next year.

While the place certainly is not like one of the big motels - and it does not claim to be - it has everything you need to make your stay there enjoyable. Everything is always spotless when we arrive and I do not mind at all to bring my own sheets and towels. I especially like being able to take my little dog and know she is safe in an enclosed outside area. Anyway, this might not be the place for everybody, but I certainly do enjoy it every time.

Couldn't have been better!

  • 5 of 5

Location was perfect... easy walk to the beach, the pier and some restaurants. The cottage was super clean and the dog loved the doggie door leading out to the front porch. We can't wait to come back next summer!

The house was exactly what I was expecting! The location was great and John was super easy to get ahold of! We will definitely be staying here when we return to Outer Banks!
