"This was our first trip to the Outer Banks and it was absolutely fabulous! We loved the beaches, the warm ocean water and the big waves! Everything at the house was perfect; so beautiful and relaxing. We must admit it's very hard to leave."

We loved staying in this house. We had a wedding to attend and it was the perfect place to retreat after a busy day. The views around the house are so pretty. I recommend staying here to anyone who would like a hassle free time in OBX. The owners are very prompt with responses to any questions. We will def be going back.

Loved this home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at the Bearden house! Rhetta and Jim were an absolute pleasure to work with. Very responsive and accommodating. This was our first time staying in the Southern Shores area and we loved the location of the home. It is situated on a lovely tree-lined street that provides a wonderful sense of privacy, and yet the house is conveniently located near everything you could need, the beach, shopping, great restaurants, etc.

The home is very spacious, clean and comfortable and we had everything we needed for a relaxing vacation. We all had a spacious bedroom and each our own bathroom and shower. We enjoyed canoeing on the canal that runs along the back of the house and beautiful sunsets across the street. There are several balconies from which to view either the sound or canal and 3 of the four bedrooms have their own balcony. Also, there are several bikes to enjoy riding throughout the neighborhood, to the beach or along the sidewalks heading toward Duck.

I can't say enough about how pleasant this lovely home is and how wonderfully gracious and accommodating Rhetta and Jim are. I highly recommend this home!

Quiet and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

It was great staying away from the main drag on a quiet dead end road with plenty of trees and very close to just about everything. Nice short drive without traffic to the private beach. And then in the evening, walk across the street to watch the sunset over the water.

The house was very clean with plenty of amenities and the Bearden's are a pleasure to deal with. The rooms are spacious. The dining area large. Kitchen functional. Friends stoped up to visit from Georgia for a couple days so 4 adults and 3 children and we were not bumping into each other and everyone had a real bed.

And a big thanks again to the cleaning staff that located a left behind DS game and Jim and Rhetta for getting it back to us.

Awesome Time!

  • 5 of 5

Had an awesome time staying in this great house. The owners could not have been more accommodating and helpful. Mrs. Rhetta was always so quick to return a phone call or an email with any help she could provide to any problem. The house was very homey in a great neighborhood right in the middle of all sights and activities. The most I paid for an uber was about 15$. The pictures do not do nearly a good enough job describing the house. I would stay here again in a heartbeat, especially for the price and location.

Wonderful Stay in April!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay and loved the house, what a great location, so quiet, such beautiful trees, so close to the water... and the beaches. We enjoyed taking a canoe trip on the canal, watching the sunsets over the playground across the street. We visited the Wright brothers memorial, and the state park with the big sand dune, so close.

What a great house, many thanks again!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this beautiful, cozy home for a week. We absolutely fell in love with the house and its location. It is very private with the woods around the back and sides of the house, but is so close to everything. It is in a neighborhood, but the houses are well spaced apart. The canal in the back of the home is so peaceful, and the sound across the street gives you a seat to watch the most beautiful sunsets. My children loved their bedrooms and all of the bedrooms were very large! The skylights in the bedroom were great to look at the stars through at night. Being here made it very difficult to come home after a week of serenity. I look forward to being at this home again!
