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

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

House was just as advertised. The house was conveniently located to lots of things to do. We really enjoyed our stay. Beth was very helpful. The water heater started leaking while we were there and she had it replaced in less than 24 hours! Would definitely stay again.

Off season 10 year wedding anniversary vacation

  • 5 of 5

First trip to Outer Banks. Loved the Southern Shores area and enjoyed our stay at this home. Plenty of room for the two of us, and set up great for family or multiple couples. The amenities were perfect, clean, outdoor/ indoor spaces, and easy on and off the Isalnd.

The property was very clean, functional, and appropriate for our stay.

  • 4 of 5

Our grandchildren certainly enjoyed the "sand box" under the house particularly when it was raining. The sunrise in the a.m. from the deck was beautiful. I was confused about beach parking and would suggest that the parking pass allow you to park at the end of the street -- E. Dogwood instead of further away from the house. My confusion lead to me getting a parking ticket! Beth was extremely responsive to my questions and yes, I would rent again.

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.
