                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1984

                      About the owner: Bob & Suzy Lippard are the proud owners of My Girl. Bob is a native of Virginia, while Suzy is a native of California. We've been married over 30 years. We grew up in families whose vacations were centered on beach experiences. Bob purchased My Girl's property way back in 1976, before there was even a road into Whalehead. We built 'My Girl' while living in Jackson Hole, Wyoming in 1984. We moved to Raleigh, NC permanently in 1990 and have lovingly maintained My Girl since that time. We love coming out to the beach whether to help maintain our cottage or just for family vacations. We have liked our experience in Corolla so much that in 1992, we purchased and built another beach house named East Meets West in the Corolla Light resort area of Corolla. Bob is a graduate of UNC - Chapel Hill (1974), while Suzy (a UCLA grad) has enjoyed living in the south and being the one to take primary care of our beach homes. We named the house after our 'theme' song at our wedding...My Girl. We hope you enjoy her as much as we have!

                      Why the Owner Chose Whalehead Beach:
                      You should choose My Girl precisely because she is one of the few houses on the beach that is a comfy cottage aimed at two couples with two kids each. She is a niche house in what has become a beach filled w/ mega mansions. Enjoy her for what she is!!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Our hot tub being located on the top level means one has wonderful views of the ocean. And the Master Bedroom upstairs gives the primary renter, the added touch of privacy to access the hot tub for special times... And the reading 'nook' off the upstairs master affords a space for getting away from the hub bub downstairs.
