About Kimberly & Eddy Kitchen

The Kitchens live in the Richmond Virginia area and grew up near OBX. Once we saw this location and home, we knew it was our time to make this vacation area a part of our daily lives. The renovations and outdoor layout serves as a great setup for entertaining, relaxing and enjoying. It is quiet and super convenient to get on and off the mainland quickly. Also a great location to reach all activities on the OBX. We know that you will enjoy it as much as we do! K & E

Kimberly & Eddy Kitchen purchased this house in 2015

Why Kimberly & Eddy Kitchen chose Southern Shores

It's not your typical beach home .....the design, layout and canal front location sold us immediately. We enjoy it as often as possible.

What makes this house unique

Quiet side of the beach, location just across the bridge so NO fighting traffic, close to everything no matter what you are looking for, we created a backyard beach experience so that you always resort back to a sandy location, remodel of the kitchen and entire home to create a warm entertaining environment, close to everything you need for your stay!

My time is July

  • 5 of 5

I always enjoy my stay at the Kitchen’s Salt house. I sleep in the Sea Horse room. The bed is comfortable and there is plenty of closet space. The house has a beach modern flair. With lots of nods to local artists. I love the old piano desk as you walk in the front door. It’s the landing place for keys and cell phones. The kitchen is a perfect gathering place for those that like to cook and those that like to watch the cook. Everything you need is there so don’t worry about bringing that crab pot. What sets this house apart is it is on a canal. The back yard is all sand so you feel like you are on the beach. Many afternoons we played corn hole, the kids played on the rope swings and the teens paddled on the kayaks. After the sun set we all listened to music, drank spirits, and ate marshmallows around the fire pit. There was something for everyone. Thank you! We will return.

Super time at the Salt House

  • 5 of 5

Had some down time with family and friends so we went here. It was quiet ........ cooked breakfast on the grill outside took in the salt air on the west side of the beach. Loved the loft for our kids with a Wii player and awesome kitchen area. We went and had our fun in the OBX area then returned to to the house and enjoyed the sand, the fire pit, kayaks and fishing. Our kind of place.

A very cool place!

  • 5 of 5

not knowing what to expect, well, our family was blown away at how the home was arranged to accommodate many quests yet it didn't feel crowded. there was plenty of seating the main living and dining areas however, we spent most of our time on the sandy beach along the water! fishing, kayaking, hanging out, playing games and more. the owner was responsive and even called to follow up with needs for our elderly family member. the beach was a short drive with lifeguard stand and there was a bathroom (porto Potty) which was great! definitely a good place! we'll be back. thank you!

Perfect home for large family

  • 5 of 5

The Kitchen’s Salt House is conveniently located in Southern Shores, just off the Wright Memorial Bridge. Everything you could possibly need is just a short drive away, groceries, restaurants, entertainment and the Beautiful Beaches of the OBX. When you aren’t at the beach there is a canal right behind the house to fish, kayak or simply sit by the fire pit and watch the world go by.

This cottage is equipped with everything you could possibly need, even the coffee pot! The owners have this house equipped with everything you Could need. It is spacious and we love the combo kitchen, dining and great room. Bedrooms Have lots of space and beds are super comfortable.

This cottage is in a safe, quiet neighborhood.

If you are looking for a place for your family.....this is it.

Amazing View! It’s All in the Details!

  • 5 of 5

The Salt House is a fantastic vacation spot. Easy to get to once you cross the bridge to sitting in long lines of traffic! The home itself is simply amazing! This home is grand in all the places that you gather! Gourmet kitchen, generous eating area with tons of windows to capture amazing sunsets! The bedrooms are so comfortable and spacious. The outdoor space is set up for the whole family. Whether you are playing corn hole, relaxing in Adirondack chairs with your toes in the sand, swinging on the swing, grilling or chilling out in the screened porch, there is something for everyone. The beach access is close by and so are great restaurants and shopping. Don’t delay booking your vacation, we have already booked our next stay at this fabulous home!

All the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

We visited for the Thanksgiving holiday and were concerned we wouldn’t have everything we would need to prepare our feast. We were surprised to find that the house really did have everything! We are used to summer rentals in the OBX where you are lucky to get enough plates, glasses, cutlery etc for the number of people in the house.

Other than the kitchen, this house had it all! We had 12 people and had more than enough room to gather but also get privacy.

We enjoyed the fire pit and took advantage every day while fishing.

We are already looking at our calendars to see if we can book this home again for next Thanksgiving because we had so much fun.
