Why Nicole Libby chose Northern Coast & Outer Banks

Southern Shores is a wonderful place to vacation! It is filled with beautiful beaches, friendly faces and great food and shopping!

What makes this house unique

This is a great location as it is conveniently located between Kitty Hawk and Duck. If you decide to venture away from the tranquil backyard, a private beach path awaits you right across from the house and gets you to the beach in just a few minutes! Or, you could check out one of the several wonderful local restaurants or the nearby shopping! The neighborhood is also great for taking the dog for a walk or riding bikes!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had to pinch ourselves - the weekend we stayed was amazing! This was by far one of the nicest homes we have rented!!

Very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We had four adults and a dog. The pool/patio area was fabulous! The outdoor furniture was comfortable and sturdy. Loved the fenced in yard for the dog, very convenient and safe. We went to dog friendly restaurants which was a plus.

The house is centrally located between towns, beach was awesome, though a bit rough, which is why we Really enjoyed the pool!

Property was clean and well maintained.

Fairly Nice!

  • 4 of 5

While the home itself was lovely and the the amenities were equally fabulous, I did have a couple small things that I feel the management company or the owners should address.

1. The ant issue in the kitchen was overwhelming. They were coming up from behind the stove and they really need to spray or put something out to stop them from coming inside.

2. The shower head in the master bathroom was horrid. It barely sprayed any water. It just needs replaced.

3. maybe have it swept and cleaned a little better before the we arrived. It had a lot of animal hair on the floor and under the furniture. Since I am allergic to most animals, this was really not good for my allergies

4. Maybe just have more than 1 TV - now I know this is being really picky...but it would help with families.

Overall, the house was really nice and a very short walk to the beach. It was peaceful and a great vacation home.

Great time!

  • 4 of 5

Loved this house! The back yard was ideal for our lab to run around in, and the jetted tub was awesome! We actually preferred it not being heated, as it was very hot when we were down and the tub was extremely refreshing to sit in a read a good book. The only issue we had was on Wednesday when a crew came to mow and left the fence open. Thankfully we noticed before we let the dog out, or that could have been devastating! Beach access is convenient! About 500 steps from the house through a very easy path. No big hill to conquer, which was perfect for my aging father who recently had knee surgery. The furniture in the living room has been updated and is lovely! House was clean and Carrie was extremely quick in answering any emails. We always enjoy staying in a different house each year, but we may stay here next year because it was such a great experience!

Perfect location for days at the beach and peaceful relaxation

  • 4 of 5

7/30/2016 We were pleasantly surprised with this oasis in the OBX! The home was updated from all previous internet pictures and was very comfortable for the 5 adults, 1 infant and dog. First, the home: the location was like an oasis in the woods! The property is surrounded by a fence (which was perfect for our dog) and very tall trees. You literally cannot see the neighbors back yards which is perfect for the oasis ambiance in the pool area. The salt water pool and soaking tub were perfect for us! There are umbrellas and shaded trellis areas which provide perfect areas for relaxing together/reading/dinner/etc. The top floor was spacious and very well stocked. The 4 bedrooms provided ample space for all of us. The outside shower was very convenient when we returned from the beach. Secondly, the beach: The shaded trail to the beach was literally a 5 minute walk! Yes, there is a main road which you must cross but all traffic stops for any pedestrians so we never had to even stop walking at the crosswalk. The provided beach chairs were perfect! The very quiet neighborhood was perfect for walking or bike riding (I recommend bringing your own bike since we found the 2 provided bikes had uncomfortable seats so we only rode them once). Lastly, the owners were pleasant to work with for the rental. We had a problem with the garbage disposal and they scheduled a plumber to come check it. Thankfully, my husband realized it was an easy fix, so the plumber appointment was cancelled. I would highly recommend this rental home!

Terrible for families with small children... across a busy highway, broken dryer

  • 1 of 5

We rent a couple of beach houses a year, and this is the first time that the owners have been nasty towards our family of small children. We were withheld the security deposit for a laundry list of minor complaints, such "watermelon seeds in the backyard, and the inside of the trash can being dirty." These people are anti-family.

The dryer broke two days into our stay, and nothing was done about it. My mother had to a wait hours for a repairman to arrive, and then the repairman told her that nothing could be done until the day we left. We were told that we would have to use the laundry mat in Kitty Hawk. As you can imagine, this would not be ideal for a family, especially when a dryer was promised.

The pool in the backyard is super dangerous. There is a rocky small pool that cascades into a super deep second pool. The rocks are slippery and jut out, a perfect scenario for a concussion.

The manager assured me that the walk to the beach was safe. The highway is super busy, without a crossing light, and the cars are driving 50+ mph.

There was white dog hair all over the upstairs rug.

I would say that this house might be good for adults, and dogs. That's it.

Owner's Response: In response to your review, our home has been occupied by many families who have had a great experience and who have stayed with us multiple times. Unfortunately, the security deposit was withheld because the home was not left in orderly condition for the next guest as outlined in the tenant rental contract that you agreed to. After each guest’s departure, we have the home inspected, and while some cleaning is expected, excessive cleaning that takes over 5 hours is not. There were colored carpet stains that required deep cleaning, as well as heavy sand that was tracked into the carpet that required vacuuming multiple times. The patio area had watermelon seeds all over the place and the inside trashcan had to be scrubbed with soap and water outside because it was so heavily soiled. There were also repairs, including a broken toilet seat and sprinkler head that was left for us and we were not notified of. If there was dog hair when you arrived, I was not notified. In fact, when you arrived, I received an email that stated “The house is awesome. We are super happy!” and when you departed, I received an email that stated “We loved the house and would choose it annually if it's available.” Regarding the dryer, I was responsive to your repair request and a repairman was scheduled for the next day. Because we understand this can be an inconvenience, we were considering offering a refund for the trouble, however, because of the cost associated with the repairs and cleaning, we were unable to offer you this refund. The dryer has since been repaired. The pictures on the website accurately represent the gated backyard and pool area. As with any pool, taking safety precautions are a necessity, especially when children are there. I have two children and have been vacationing at this home for ten years and have never once had an issue, nor have I felt unsafe with my children at this pool. As well, I always explain to families that you have to cross the main road to get to the beach. There is a beach access path across from the house that is a nice short walk and there is an intersection at the neighborhood entrance with a traffic light that you can also use to cross. In my own experience, with small children, motorists are generally pedestrian friendly and neither of these have been issues for myself or previous guests. Regards, Property Manager

Awesome rental!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a girl's getaway vacation. It fit our needs perfectly for the price. We were a bit hesitant to rent since there were no recent reviews. The property manager explained that the owners hadn't rented the property over the last couple of years. The living room furniture has been updated and the 4th bedroom now has 2 single beds. The AC and all other appliances worked properly. The pool was fantastic - and very private. The rental had outdoor grill which we used frequently, and lots of beach chairs and pool toys/floats. The house is located on a quiet street and beach access is a very short walk. The beds/baths could use updating but we were perfectly happy with our stay regardless! Property Manager Carrie was very communicative, flexible and helpful all along the way. My pup had a great time as well! Would recommend to anyone!
