  • Family Reunion

    "Had the Greatest Time at OBX. The house was very clean, and large. Everyone had there own room and bath. The pool was a big hit with our grandchildren. Walking to the beach was less then two blocks away, which was great for our family. This house is conveniently located to dining and shopping. I would highly recommend this house to a large family."

  • Good Choice

    "Our family of 8 plus a baby had the pleasure of spending a week here. It was our first visit to the Outer Banks, so we weren't sure of which location to choose. We were so happy with our choice! This home was clean, roomy, and provided us with all we needed for a fun week. There are bedrooms on every floor, providing everyone a little space of their own. The kitchen was well equipped (minus measuring cups and spoons). It was a short walk to the beach right across the street. The pool was great, and we liked that there were so many chairs, chaises, and tables around the pool for relaxing. There were many rockers on the upper deck for sitting at night or enjoying your cup of coffee in the morning watching the ocean. There were 6 flat screen TV's, but not one of them was turned on all week! We liked Southern Shores as it was a little less congested, the houses are a little more spread out, and still a very short drive to all the restaurants. The only negative of this property, was the mattresses in 2 of the bedrooms really need upgraded and weren't very comfortable. We definitely would consider this property again, but maybe 2 weeks next time!"

  • Little oasis of peace

    "Spent 4 nights here with an old friend of mine from Durham in october. The place is perfect for 2 to 4 folks. Friends or a couple. Very nice clean and cozy. The fact that it is surrounded by trees makes you feel some privacy. We loved the backyard with the nice fire place, and the canal that leads to the sound. We rented a canoe, it was nice to paddle around. Malissa is a very nice and thoughtful person, she provided more than other other cottages i have rented in the outerbanks. Also, the location is nice to find out about the outerbanks, especially not very far from the nice corolla, and nags head piers. My girlfriend who couldn't take vacation this time wants already that we come back together!"

  • outstanding time

    "Just a note to let you know how much we enjoyed out time at your home. We have been going to Outer Banks for the last 5 years, and this is the first time the kids didn't keep asking what are we doing next. They had plenty to keep them happy. We made use of everything there and enjoyed all of it. The highlight of the week, we were all out by the dock fishing and two members of our family had taken the canoe out right out in front of us, when 5 dolphins appeared and circled the boat twice and then went on there way. The kids loved it. Thanks again for the use of your home. Shiffletts from Shenandoah, Va"
