Another Girl's Getaway
I have stayed in a number of houses up and down the Outer Banks, but Southern Pleasure remains my favorite. Took a group of ladies there in September, and even though it rained while we were there, we had a wonderful stay. The house is lovely, well appointed/decorated, and clean! We were very comfortable, and between the pool, hot tub and close proximately to Duck, able to keep ourselves busy in spite of the bad weather. The ladies who stayed with me there all loved the house as well! Dan was so easy to work with, and is very responsive when you have questions. Overall, I was very happy with the entire experience, and really look forward to returning soon!
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.
Our family group consisted of 16 people, 4 generations including 12 adults and 4 children (ages 1-8 years), although we never had more than 12 at a time in the house.
Large, well-appointed house, clean house: This house on a large private lot has 3 levels. The 1st floor has a bunk room (pyramid bunk), game room (QSS), laundry, and bathroom. The 2nd floor has 3 queen bedrooms, 1 en suite master, and 2 sharing a Jack-and-Jill bathroom. The 3rd floor has an en suite master (king), and open kitchen/dining/ living room with powder room. Each floor has at least one deck, 2 of which are screened. Included at no cost: blankets, pillows, small appliances, movies, books, high chair, crib, 2 baby gates. It was very clean and well kept.
Pool, hot tub, and patio area: A tall gated fence secures the pool area. The pool is a modest size, with molded seats in both ends. There also is a hot tub, 3 sets of tables and chairs, and a propane grill, all centrally located and well lit in the evening – great for outdoor meals.
Neighborhood playground: A small playground is located 2 blocks away on Hickory Trails, an easy walk even for small ones, without having to cross any major roads. All of the playground equipment in the shade – great for afternoons that are too hot for little ones on the beach.
Owner/Agent: Dan was great; always available for my numerous questions and concerns, always responding promptly. He brought a new grill to us within hours of being informed that the old grill wasn’t working, and reimbursed the cost of propane that we had purchased. Most impressively, he returned our full damage deposit in less than one week.
Negatives: It should be noted that the issues we experienced were outside the control of the owner/agent.
Traffic and Traffic Noise: Simply put, we were not prepared for the traffic; our drive should have been 6 hours but took 11, with the last 15 miles taking 2 hours. The house is closer to Duck Road than pictures indicated, allowing for traffic noise in all parts of the house, day and night.
Beaches: The closest beach is on Hickory Trail, approximately 5 blocks across Duck Road, which is a very busy main road. The beach has some orange sand and lots of pebbles, and no lifeguard that I could find. A sandier beach with a lifeguard is approximately 9 blocks north at Hillcrest. Two parking passes are supplied.
Just returned from a beautiful weeks stay at Southern Pleasure. The house was everything we hoped it would be and more. The pictures don't begin to do it justice...very bright colorful and CLEAN! The outside pool area is wonderful. Lots of sun, but plenty of shade to escape the heat. We all thoroughly enjoyed the pool. The bedrooms were all pretty and fresh looking, and the bedding was incredible....slept like a baby every night! The kitchen was fully equipped. We cooked in several nights and had everything we needed!
The house is very well located...between Southern Shores and Duck. Lots of places to shop and eat. We were lucky and had fantastic weather, but we would have enjoyed our stay no matter what. Dan, the owner of the property was terrific to work with. He was always quick to respond to emails and inquiries. I would most certainly rent this home again and recommend it to families, couples, or groups of women such as ours. It was a wonderful vacation and the perfect way to kick off the Summer season! My only regret is that it flew by much too quickly! Can't wait to come back!
We loved it!
This home is great for a group vacation - we were 8 guests (grandparents, adult children and grandchildren) and we had everything we could want here.
The pool is a great feature, the hot tub was fun, there are 2 shaded screened in porches and an open porch off the living area if you like to be in the sun and another shaded open porch off the second floor - both of the unscreened porches give you an aerial view of what is happening in the pool (helpful features when kids turn into fish around a pool). Plenty of lounge chairs wherever you decide you want to be.
The house feels secluded because it is surrounded by trees and yet it is a short easy 5 minute walk to the ocean. There's also a small playground/basketball court in the neighborhood behind the house - just 2 short blocks away. We've biked in the neighborhood which has some good non-busy residential streets and some are shady with bike paths - so you have alternatives to using the one bike path that follows Duck Road. There are also family movies on DVD, board games, card games, jigsaw puzzles, foosball and even a PS2 with games. Short car ride to nearby grocery.
Southern Shores is a great location too - when you see the tourists' cars slowly creep north towards Duck and Corolla you'll be glad you're already "home" and enjoying your vacation.
This home is as lovely as the pictures - clean and cheerful, spacious and definitely thoughtfully stocked in terms of the kitchen - plenty of dishes and glasses, bowls, pots and pans, cooking utensils etc. and plenty of plastic cups and such that are safe for poolside. My teens appreciated that there were TVs in every bedroom so there was never a disagreement about what program to watch. Wi-fi was also very much appreciated by the teens. The house gets wonderful light in all the rooms so if you want to retreat to a bedroom it doesn't feel like you are in a cave. Beds/mattresses were great - top quality for a restful sleep.
The last, but not least, feature I want to note is the excellent responsiveness of the property manager, Dan. I made a couple of calls to him over the first few days and he was quick to call me back and resolve my questions. This is a great feature - you can have every confidence that your vacation will be a great one and if any snags do arise - Dan takes care of things. Grandmom must have said twenty times - "I really like this house; it works for us." I'm so glad we chose Southern Pleasures!
Great family vacation at the Outer Banks
Unfortunately, my family's vacation at the Outer Banks has ended. We had a wonderful week at this property in Southern Shores and I would highly recommend it. We were a group of 6 adults, one 3 year old and 2 infants. The description of the house does not do it justice. It is beautifully furnished, comfortable and very well equipped. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need and more, including 2 coffee pots, 2 blenders, every size dish and cooking utensil you can think of. The master king bedroom on the top level has a bathroom suite with a huge Jacuzzi tub. 3 of the bedrooms have private access to decks at the back of the house. The property is surrounded by trees, giving you a sense of privacy. The location is convenient to Southern Shores shopping centers as well as all of the attractions in Duck. I found the owner very easy and pleasant to deal with. I'm sure you will enjoy your stay at this lovely home. We certainly did!
