Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7) - RENTS FRIDAY TO FRIDAY

Relax at our cozy beach cottage, the Circle R, in Southern Shores, NC, located oceanside off of Route 12 (Duck Road) between Kitty Hawk and Duck. You will immediately feel at home when you walk in, finding a very comfortable environment with casual decor. There are many things to enjoy: kicking back in the living room at the bar, cooking up great seafood dinners in the galley-style kitchen, sitting on the screened-in porch, basking in the sun and swimming at our private pool, or sitting at the pool-side bar with a drink in hand. BUT - don't forget the beach! You only have a short walk (450 yards) where you can enjoy walking on the beach, sunbathing, seashelling, or surffishing in the beautiful Atlantic Ocean!

We hope you will take a minute or two to view our site and check out the Circle R! We would love to have you enjoy our favorite spot at the Outer Banks!

Why Judy Goins chose Southern Shores

After visiting the Outer Banks for many years with friends (usually during the Thanksgiving Holiday), we decided to invest in a place of our own. Now we come whenever we can (or when not rented) with family and friends. Any season is great here, but we have become especially fond of spending Thanksgiving and Christmas in Southern Shores.

What makes this house unique

We have really tried to make our cottage feel like a home away from home. Everyone who visits comments on how comfortable they feel as soon as they walk in. During warm weather (sometimes even into October) we enjoy time by the pool. During the colder months, we enjoy being cozy inside, watching football games and cooking up a big pot of chili (or some other winter concoction). And, holiday celebrations are the best at the Circle R! Of course, there is no time of the year that does not suit the fisherman in our family!

Circle R

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from our week at the Circle R in Southern Shores. We are a family of four with two young children and we chose the Circle R for it's amenities, location, and price. We were not disappointed at all. The house is an older home, but has been maintained well and was very clean. The posted photos are a true representation of the property and the home owner is as easy to work with as anyone I've ever rented from in the past. We had a last minute change/need and it went through without any issue at all. The kids enjoyed the well maintained pool in the back yard and I enjoyed the privacy the lot offers from the few surrounding homes. This home isn't anything fancy, but it's well worth the cost and you get exactly what you are advertised when trying to make a decision. We choose to drive out to the beaches north of Corolla, but beach access is only a few blocks away. The Friday/Friday turnaround may seem odd, but you will understand exactly why this is offered for the Circle R come Saturday morning. Another benefit is the second refrigerator in the pool house, giving you plenty of room to store all the food, drinks, and ice you need for your stay. We frequently seen deer in and around the yard, my wife even walked to within five feet of one. I would have no problem recommending the Circle R to family or friends.

Nice property. The pictures on the website do not depict an accurate impression. We were pleasantly surprised. We definitely would return. The owners were very friendly and accessible to answer questions when we decided to book. Thanks for sharing your home with us!

Excellent affordable family friendly

Just returned from my week in OBX. We would love to rent again in the future! This home was so conveniently located to all of the attractions and restaurants and of course the 3 min walk to the beach. We rented bicycles locally for the and they deliver! Rode our bikes to the beach. The pool was always a plus for after a long day adventuring around the outer banks. Plenty of activities for everyone.

I felt at home and comfortable, exceeded my expectations by far. Plenty of space. Master bedroom has its own bathroom! Beautifully decorated. We had 2adults 2children. More than enough space.

Well maintained ..pool was pristine and the home was clean as a whistle!

My family and I loved this beach house, true to pics and more. Beautiful decor. Home owner very friendly and prompt to respond to calls with questions. Would recommend to any family with small children and family pets. Short walk to beach of two blocks not great for anyone with disability though no beach access parking! Love, love loved our stay plan to rent again! Home very clean and well maintained. Tiki bar great on pool days!

We just returned from a stay at the beach cottage. It was perfect for our family of five plus a black Lab. The photos don't really show how nice the cottage really is. We especially enjoyed the pool and tiki bar. We would definitely recommend it to our family and friends.
