Why Beth Haslam chose Northern Coast & Outer Banks

We came down on a visit. After enjoying the Outer Banks beaches we purchased a house for our family vacations.

What makes this house unique

We all enjoy relaxing on the beach or playing in the surf. The resturants have a variety of food along with delicious seafood. We never tire of visiting all of the history and attractions that the Outer Banks has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Comfortable retreat with lots of privacy yet still close to Ocean

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a most enjoyable stay. The kitchen has all the plates, utensils, etc, that any cook would need. The upper deck off the master was a favorite lounging spot complete with distant ocean view. Terrific media center and good WiFi. The covered parking and outdoor shower were a plus. Would stay here again.

Great home - enjoyed our stay!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this comfortable 3 bedroom home! It was very clean with a well equipped kitchen. The parking lot pass to the Southern Shores lifeguarded beach was a big plus. We also loved riding the bikes down to the beach in the evening. It was great having the first level bedroom and kitchen so my mom didn't have to climb too many stairs. Beth was very easy to work with before our stay, and returned our deposit very quickly.

Better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed by the house! I feel like it was way bigger than what the pictures make it seem. The deck all the way around the house was great and if you had a lot more people you would never be crowded! We had a few storms while we were there but we were still able to hang out on the covered patio. It was so nice that they had a picnic table in there plenty of chairs! The house was super clean. I have been to a lot of rentals and this by far was the cleanest. ( the only suggestion for the owners would be to change the color of the slip things in the bath tub to something other than white)

The kitchen had everything thing you needed! It was very well stocked! Another thing that was really great is that the owners had a room downstairs that they let you borrow what was in there. Bikes, sand toys, chairs etc.

Great view from the very top deck! Beds were comfortable! Not far from the beach, just a short drive to the public parking part. Great place to get away!!!

We loved the beach house!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely beach house for our 45th wedding anniversary with our family. Staying there were 5 adults and I child. It was our first experience with VRBO and we were pleased with how easy it was. The house was clean, well maintained, and in a quiet neighborhood. The living area was spacious with a high ceiling. All the furniture was well coordinated and looked fairly new, as did the carpet. There were 2 additional chairs that matched the sofa not shown in the pictures. The queen bedroom downstairs was smaller than the queen bedroom upstairs, but just as nice. Our 4 year old grandson loved climbing the steps to the upstairs bedroom so he could watch everyone below. The bathrooms were fine and the open kitchen was well equipped. We loved the treetop decks on 3 sides of the first floor. We experienced cool weather for May in NC, so we enjoyed the fireplace for the 3 nights we were there. Highlights of our stay included a 30 minute 172 Cessna sightseeing flight from Manteo, riding our son's jeep on the beach north of Corolla and seeing wild horses, and climbing Jockey's Ridge when it wasn't blazin' hot. Beth, you have a lovely house and you're are so lucky to live in a great part of our state. We'll be back!
