About Susan D

I grew up in Northern Virginia and still live there. Being a real estate agent for many years, I've always appreciated the value of owing property. I purchased this home several years ago as a 2nd home and have spent a lot of time along with my 2 daughters and their families in the Outer Banks. For a while, I moved into this home as my personal residence and loved living in the Outer Banks until I was blessed with my first grandchild and I wanted to be closer. I still spend quite a lot of time at this home and love the area and my nieghbors there.

Susan D purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Susan D chose Southern Shores

I fell in love with this home the first time I saw it. I have remodeled and renovated the majority of it but have tried to maintain the original charm of the home. A few years ago, I added the pool and have really enjoyed it. This home and the surroundings are my favorite place to be!

Fantastic home!

  • 5 of 5

Just an incredibly beautiful home - airy and fun. Amazing pool and the screened porch is fabulous. Wonderfully decorated but comfortable and welcoming. Close to the beach and to anywhere you might want to go during your stay although you may just want to stay put. Owner was really great to work with. Can't wait to go back!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved the place and location. The children loved the pool the most and there was already floats provided which was excellent! Short walking distance to the beach. The beach is so breath taking. I really like how there is a front net porch before going in, it allowed the children to stay within the house and porch. The only down side about the place is the wifi signal. It was hard to get signal for my phone to search up places on Google map. Overall my family enjoy our stay at the place. :)

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. I am sorry you had trouble with the wi-fi. I haven't had any issues with it in the past but could have had it checked. Take Care, Susan
