Fantastic Find

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quick getaway over Spring Break for our family of 3 and I was really impressed by all the great reviews this property received and decided to give it a chance. After staying here, I can honestly say those great reviews are well deserved! The house is nicely tucked back from the street (you can barely see it from Google Street View) and it's well shrouded by trees. It is next door to the fire/EMS station, but we had no issues with noise or traffic from it. There is some construction currently going on across the street but, again, no issues with the crew, noise, or parking. The house itself is a nice little gem - clean and well-maintained with lots of thoughtful amenities. The owner was great to work with. He made everything so easy. Called us on the first night with some general info and recommendations for the area. We felt very much at home and really enjoyed our time at the cottage. Already looking at our calendar to see when we can go back! (Note: There is no washer/dryer or dishwasher which might be an issue for some, but it didn't detract from our visit in any way.)

It truly is a cottage, nestled in the trees.

  • 5 of 5

Old beach living preferred and this did not disappoint. Live Oaks surround this enjoyable house giving it a treehouse feel. Everything is furnished, clean, and comfortable.

I plan to go back...and soon!

Almost perfect

  • 4 of 5

I love this property. Even though it is in the middle of Southern Shores, you don't realize there are other houses close by because the property is completely wooded. It is just a short walk to the beach and a few minutes drive to stores and restaurants. The only things I can come up with that are less than perfect is the WiFi is a little bit of a pain because you have to log in every time you leave and return to the house, and the password is not easy to remember. Also, there is no washer and dryer available, although I didn't really need one. The size of this house was perfect for our group, but having only a single bathroom could be an issue for some. Having said all that, this will be my first choice when I return to the OBX. The house was clean, and the owner was helpful.

Comfortable and private, convenient, cool, cottage owner checked in

  • 4 of 5

Easy walk and access to lifeguarded beach which was not crowded second week of July. Nice waves most days and enjoyed walking on beach. Convenient to drive to Duck-takeout from Fishbones-great clam chowder; ice cream in same area; very nice dinner at Red Sky Cafe. Easy drive to Walmart for groceries, Carawan Seafood (get the shrimp already steamed!! and they had fantastic seafood soups-frozen but local) and restaurants just south of there. Went to Bad Bean for fish tacos one lunch. Although bad traffic coming in Saturday afternoon( police were directing at the 158 light) we avoided additional traffic would have confronted if rented further north or south. Southern Shores turned out to be a great area. Cottage had everything we needed although a blender would have been nice. Do note that there is no washer or dryer. Otherwise well supplied including cleaning supplies. We took paper goods and soap.The furniture and beds were very comfortable and we enjoyed sitting on the porch. Chips called to check on us the first evening and would have been available if needed anything. Easy to work with. Very pleasant week.

Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family and best friends really enjoyed the stay at the cottage. It is a short drive from Duck. We really enjoyed the trees surrounding the property for the privacy and also all of the near by restaurants and shops. The beach is in walking distance as well.

Great Cottage for Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is one block from a quiet, life-guard supervised beach and just a little South of the town of Duck so it is a super location. The cottage also comes with a parking permit to a nearby beach on the bay side which is ideal for sunsets as it faces west. The cottage is wonderfully shaded by mature trees making it a private getaway. It's a very relaxing spot with a large wrap-around porch, internet, televisions, and a gas-grille. Chips, the owner is very friendly, helpful and caring; which made a big difference for our stay!
