Original Flat Top Duplex With Modern Conveniences
About Owner/Property Manager
This cottage was bought by my parents, in partnership with my father's best friend from the navy, Hal. At times it was hard for each to make the payments, but they managed. With 5 kids there was a ready supply of workers to maintain the cottage. Several families from our church also bought cottages or rented cottages regularly and memories of our time on the Outer Banks grew with bonfires on the beach, trips up Jockey Ridge, Easter egg hunts, and more. When the mortgage was finally paid in full, my folks bought the other side of the duplex and Hal bought another place down the beach. Over the years, the cottage has been expanded and updated with heating and air conditioning, dishwasher, TV, and Internet access. My mother, Elly, is the owner and my sisters, brother, and I manage the cottage for her. Mom still enjoys several weeks in the Spring and Fall at the beach.
Owner/Property Manager purchased this Cottage in 1966
Why Owner/Property Manager chose Southern Shores
Location, location, location.... We are literally across the street from the beach access path, (100 yds to the beach). Shopping, restaurants, entertainment, outdoor activities are within a 10 minute drive . Our beaches are clean and not over-crowded. Sea Breezes cottage has unique charm and comfort individuals, couples, families, girls weekends, guys getaways, fishing and golf trips. Rent both sides for larger groups and open the unique sliding wall to have a large dining area.
What makes this Cottage unique
This cottage is one of the original cottages built on the Outer Banks in the 1950's, but don't let that scare you away! The cottage has charm, is comfortable, and has been updated to have central heating and air conditioning as well as the basic amenities you would hope for, (dishwasher, TV, internet). Sea Breezes doesn't compete with the new construction, luxury beach homes in the area... but then they can't really compete with our place either.

Nice beach getaway
A little rustic in a great location.
quaint little duplex
The inside is nice, had enough dishes to feed an army of guest, the beds were very comfortable, has a great AC but didn’t need it much, nice outside shower. Grill could be replaced the ash catcher would not stay in place and had to find a wheel that had fallen off , found it and placed it back on, everything else was very nice pet friendly which is a big plus the beach is in reasonable access but does have a lot of steps for people with a walking disability but we did ok all in all a great stay
Glad to hear you had a good stay! Thanks for letting me know about the grill. I'll be taking care of that when I get down there later this month.
Hope to have you stay at Sea Breezes again!
Perfect cozy beach stay
This is our second year coming for a long weekend and we love it. Cozy house with everything we need for a small family, and best of all, directly across from the beach. We love the outdoor shower, especially for the kids! And the owner is super easy to communicate with.
A great experience!
An older beach home with true roots to the original Outer Banks. We have stayed here often and have always enjoyed the experience.
great location. pet friendly . very well maintained. I definitely got what I paid for.
great value for the cottage. they had everything in the kitchen that you would need to prepare meals for a family nice outdoor and indoor shower. comfortable beds. The owner was more than accommodating and answered emails in a timely fashion. The best part of the rental was location. we were exactly a few feet to beach access. the whole experience was a blessing. The neighborhood was upscale and the beach was private just as advertised. we were not disappointed .we will be returning next year to the southern Shores Duck area but will need a much larger place ,as the entire family will be with us. I had never vacationed on the Outer Banks but my first experience was excellent thanks to VRBO
Perfect place for us!
Loved you little cottage. It is perfect for us, and right where other family/friends are staying in other cottages. So love your little Sea Breezes!! we want to stay next year too!
