Property description

Great location--a short walk or bike ride (approximately 300 yards) gets you to the beach where there is plenty of room to play and relax! (We are on the 'oceanside' of Duck Road - there are no streets to cross to get to the beach.) Back at the house, a fabulous hot tub, screened in porch, and comfortable interior with unique beach murals complete your summer vacation.

In 2011 and before, this house was rented through Southern Shores under the name 'Spoiled Rotten.' We have added a flat screen TV and an ipod docking stereo, and opened up a bonus room for kids' play, work or quiet reading to enhance the features of this already family-friendly cottage. In 2012 we added a new high quality king size mattress for the master bedroom.

WiFi available throughout the property. No charge, unlimited # of users. Cell phone booster antennae installed in 2012 provides strong cell phone reception throughout the house.

We rent on a Friday to Friday schedule. Our experience is that traffic is lighter on Fridays than on Saturdays getting onto and around the Outer Banks. Saturday is typically the heaviest traffic day each week during the summer down there, so we opted for the Friday to Friday schedule.

L1: 2 BR (MBR w/K, bath w/tub & shower; 1 w/Q), hall bath (w/shower). Living/dining/kitchen area, 2 ceiling fans & skylights, 2 color CATV (living area and MBR).

L2: 3 BR (2 w/Ts & CF, 1 w/2 bunk sets),1 bath (w/shower).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

Why the Owner Chose Southern Shores, NC, USA:
We love relaxing at the outer banks and have always thought Southern Shores was the best of all locations: uncrowded beaches and close to the bridge so that there is no long wait in weekend traffic up Duck Road. We also wanted to be on the ocean side of the road so that the kids and visitors could stroll down the beach any time of the day or evening without having to cross any major roads. This house fits the bill perfectly.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Easy days on the beach, relaxing in the hot tub surrounded by the trees, morning coffee on the deck, family dinners and games, biking to Duck. The boys kill lots of time skim boarding and riding waves.
