Southern Shores house description
Adorable Cottage located just one short block to the beach! This newly remodeled home has it all! Plenty of space to relax and trees offer a private setting for small groups or families looking to get away from it all and relax.
Walk to the beautiful beaches of Southern Shores or invite friends over for a BBQ on one of the two private patios attached to the house. The yard was recently fenced in for your four legged family members too!
The Master Bath has a flat screen TV overlooking the jetted tub so you can relax after a fun day of shopping, dining, biking or enjoying one of the many activities the Outer Banks has to offer.
An open floor plan creates a great atmosphere for eating together, playing games or just enjoying time with family and friends. Kitchen equipped with plenty of extras and the location is so close to the beach it just can't be beat!

A lovely stay
A lovely stay
Really enjoyed our 2 week stay in Southern Shores. The house was in a very good location. Our favorite part of the trip was getting to see the wild horses in Corolla plus having Duck Donuts. Loved the spacious feel of the house. Will likely be returning.

good home with a few issues
good home with a few issues
The home was very pleasant and just as described by the owner. The living room and kitchen were both great with good furniture and new appliances. The kitchen was very well stocked for cooking meals in. The house overall is very clean, nicely decorated with comfortable furniture and beds. We did enjoy the fenced in yard for our small dog. The 2 decks were very nice and large. But one has no patio furniture or chairs and the other had 2 broken chairs. Needs more deck furniture? The walk to the beach is one block but it is a very long block. Total walk is right at a half a mile. You’ll surely need a beach buggy or wagon to make the trek. I do have 4 complaints regarding the home. 1) The AC was not very comfortable during the middle of the day. The master bedroom was not very comfortable even during the night. We had to run 2 fans full time. It either needs more insulation in the ceiling or the HVAC is not sized correctly for the amount of square footage. From about 2pm to 7pm, the house inside thermostat would go to anywhere between 85-88 degrees, which is not very comfortable for summer months. I had the AC temp set on 79 degrees. It would cool down at night and early mornings. You would not be able to stay in one day just to read or watch a movie. 2) The owner has a long term renter who stays in the basement apartment. I do feel that the owner should divulge that info on the VRBO website. As a renter, you don’t find that out until walking in the door and seeing the note on the refrigerator. The long term renter was not a real problem. I seldom saw or heard them. It came as a real surprise when I checked in. 3) The road this house is on (Duck Rd or Hwy 12) is the only road in and out of Duck, Currituck, and Corrolla. Therefore on most week days and especially weekends, it is very heavily traveled. Upon our arrival on Saturday, it took us 1 hour to go the last 2 miles to the home. The house is close to this road and does get considerable road noise 24 hours a day. 4) The owner should do major trimming along both sides of the driveway. The trees and brush are so overgrown you can’t safely see on-coming traffic when pulling out into the roadway. We really did enjoy the OBX area. This was our first trip and we may likely return in the off season.

Perfect Vacaction Cottage!
Perfect Vacaction Cottage!
Stephanie's beach house is absolutely adorable. So cozy and comfortable. From the moment we walked in the door I was so excited. The cottage is so nicely decorated and clean. The perfect size. The fenced in yard was perfect for our dogs. I would definitely stay here again. Stephanie was wonderful to work with also. Can't say enough. Thank you!

We just returned from a wonderful week in Stephanie's beautiful beach cottage. Our vacation couldn't have been any better. The location, not only to the beach, but also to the rest of the Outer Banks couldn't have been more perfect. This was our first trip to the area, and we can not wait to return. We can't thank Stephanie enough for providing such great information support and a warm and cozy home. There was nothing lacking inside or outside the home. Not only will we plan on returning soon, we will also be spreading the word on what a great experience we had.

Stephanie was just wonderful to work with (even in short notice). The house was just perfect and had everything you needed for a home away from home. The pictures just don't do this home justice.Loved the kitchen and open living room. The fenced in yard was great and Brody (4yr old yellow Lab) LOVED it!!! Great location to all the fun and wonderful things OBX has to offer. Loved the sound of the ocean from the decks at night! Could not have asked for more for a great escape! We really enjoyed our time and hope to rent again soon!

Great cottage! This was the cleanest OBX rental we have ever been in and totally met our needs. The nice fenced in backyard made our dog very happy. The owner could not be easier to work with. The walk to the beach was quick and as advertised. We'd definitely return.

This was our first trip to the OBX. Southern Shores was a beautiful, friendly and very laid back vacation spot. The house was much nicer than it appeared in the pictures. Extremely clean, comfortable and great location. The open floor plan made it a great place to enjoy family and have a great time. Our 4 yr old son especially loved the jetted tub with the TV! The beach was beautiful and just a very short walk away. Stephanie was great and very easy to work with. Can't wait to go back!!!! Thank you for a memorable vacation!

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: I am from the Outer Banks. I went to Manteo High School and graduated from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. I studied Political Science and History. I have been living in the DC area for the last 12 years, but my family still lives on the OBX. I have a 6 year old Golden Retriever and he loves the beach too. I am a triathlete and I take advantage of the many bike/running trails in the area.
Why the Owner Chose Southern Shores:
I chose the Southern Shores area to buy my home because it is somewhere I personally enjoy living. This location is perfect because it is so close to the beach, but it has privacy because it is surrounded by trees. East Dogwood Trail is a beach access so I never have to drive or worry about parking. Southern Shores is located close to Duck and close to Kitty Hawk so the traffic never bothers me much. I love the spirit of the Outer Banks. The restaurants and beaches are beautiful and it is the perfect place to spend time with family and friends.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is the perfect location. The beach is right across the street, restaurants are within a couple of miles both North and South of the house, shopping is the same. It still has a neighborhood feel because there are running and biking trails right outside the door so everyone can enjoy their vacation!
