Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here twice and returned because the house is clean, well maintained and meets our needs. We like that it's on one level and has a good kitchen. We love that it's across a small street from the beach access.

Trip for Lilly's birthday party

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home, just as described with beach access just a short walk across the street. Mr. Newbury was very accommodating and quick to reply to any questions prior to our trip. We wish we had had the opportunity to meet him. Would highly recommend a stay at his little brick beach home.

We love the location of this property. Very close to the ocean ...though it does not have an ocean view. The house is one level which for the older crowd is super nice. They have everything that you need there and it is quite comfortable.

Lovely just like we remembered it!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed in this house last summer for a week and remember it being very cozy and charming, perfect for our needs. This year was the same. We stayed there for a week and had another couple join us for a few days. The house is very accommodating for a small group of people. We took advantage of the well stocked kitchen to make breakfast on numerous occasions and never had to worry about not having the right cooking utensils or pots and pans. The outdoor shower is lovely and the back screened in porch is perfect for enjoying some wine and reading a book. You cant beat the short walk to the beach! The owner Fred is very friendly and makes it easy to get in touch with him if there are any issues. Overall, a wonderful experience for the second year in a row!

OBX Comfort and Convience

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in this comfortable home in a quiet Southern Shores neighborhood.

The house has a good layout, plenty of room and great air conditioning.

It's directly across the street from beach access point which is so convenient for back and forth supply runs.

The location is close to everything and all our needs were met for a great week at the beach.

We rented bikes for the week, kayaked in Audubon sanctuary, hung out at the beach, barbecued, watched Olympics, etc.

The owners were very friendly and accommodating.

I would recommend this property and return for sure, since it had everything we needed and exceeded our expectations.

Great value. Very good location for beach access. Perfect for small family.

  • 5 of 5

We started out with the idea of renting an ocean front house. Most were larger than we needed and out of budget. We almost took a small house in Kill Devil right on the ocean that would have been a little higher in price than this one. I am very glad we did not. This house is bigger. I would describe it as medium sized with a good sized yard and a garage you can use to park a vehicle. It is on the corner. So, you only have to walk across the front yard and you are on the paved walkway to the beach. I rolled our 10 x 10' shade canopy down the paved walkway each day. It is heavy to carry so that was great. The house is a short distance going away from the beach to Route 12. There is a nicely shaded, paved walkway where I jogged every morning. The neighborhood in general is very desirable with large yards and a fair amount of room between houses, some of which are spectacular. It was literally a 5 minute drive to the heart of Duck, which I visited twice during our stay. The boardwalk there is fantastic. I didn't think I would have the fun of a boardwalk in the Outer Banks. You are even closer to a shopping center with a Walmart and a Harris Teeter and McD, etc. We also had several drives down to Nags Head and Manteo which was 15-30 depending on how far you want to go. It seemed like the perfect location. The feel like temp during our stay in late July was over 100 all week. The AC system kept the place as cool as you wanted. We used the charcoal grill once which was fun and played some games in the screened back porch. We would have had more back yard fun if it wasn't the hottest week of the year. I used the outdoor shower daily that was great. The tv had all the channels and has a very large screen. I might look for a place with a pool if I return in July or Aug. but those rentals would probably have a higher price tag or be farther from the beach. The place was well stocked for everything you would need for cooking, etc. They had a repair guy come out quickly to deal with one minor issue that came up. Some people would want a newer or larger place, which of course one can find in the OBX. I'd say this was a great value especially if you don't want to deal with a lot of going up and down stairs.

Car: recommended

Southern Shores is a quiet, year around community located between Kitty Hawk and Duck, NC. It is ideally located near shopping, night spots, medical facilities, water sports, and historic attractions. Southern Shores not only has beautiful, private beaches, but is located on Currituck Sound providing access to boating, fishing, and other water sports; not to mention, some of the most spectacular sunsets and views on the East Coast.

Southern Shores is only minutes from the Wright Brothers First Flight Memorial and Museum. In addition, Duck with its neat shops and beautiful waterfront is only a short distance up the road.

Best of all, our rental property is approximately 250 feet to one of the nicest, private beaches in the area. Enjoy your morning coffee on the crossover deck viewing the sunrise or just enjoying the beauty of the Atlantic Ocean. In addition, the beach has a full time life guard on duty during the summer season, located at the beach access across the street from our house.

Access to private, community tennis courts are available. Tennis courts are approximately 1 mile away and are accessed by a passcode provided in the rental house.
