Fun and updated, this 4 bedroom, 2 bath home is within walking distance to the beautiful beaches of Southern Shores in the Outer Banks. You'll have a well equipped kitchen with great gas range for cooking, a large comfortable sofa in the great room with a flat screen TV, DVD player, cable and board games galore. There are 3 queen beds and one bedroom with twins, with linens and towels provided. Two of the bedrooms have private decks.There is also a ground floor laundry room with an extra fridge and an outside shower to rinse off after a day at the beach.

We loved this beach house! It was very well-equipped and clean. Lots of nice personal touches. Very nice kitchen. The laundry room was even equipped with a bathing station for your dog complete with shampoo, conditioner, and even doggie towels!

Perfect home in a quiet setting close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Sunrise Cottage was the perfect retreat for our trip. The home is incredibly clean and provided us with everything we could have needed- bikes, kayak, fishing supplies, beach chairs, toys, and body boards just to name a few. The secluded area is within walking distance to the beach so it was the best of both worlds. The home has a large fenced yard and ample deck space. My fiance and I got married while we were there and the home was perfect for our families to get together for dinner. Everyone was jealous they didn't find the home themselves! If it wasn't for the threat of Hurricane Matthew it would have been incredibly hard to leave! We look forward to another vacation there in the future. Thank you Donna and Joe for being such great hosts!

Unhappy with rental experience

  • 2 of 5

Overall, we were really disappointed in our visit to the Outer Banks this year staying in this rental. We rent through VRBO for all of our trips and haven't had a cleanliness issue until this trip. Note, we go to the OBX yearly and love this area. The air vents were caked in dust and the house smelled terrible as a result of the air filters not being changed out in 8 months (note this is suggested to be done monthly). The dates were written on the air filters as Jan 2016. Also, the grill had not been kept up and was literally unusable so had to be replaced by the cleaning crew during our visit. Although the issues were taken care of once bringing to the owner's attention, these issues shouldn't have had to be addressed. When going on vacation, I should be walking into a stress free experience and this unfortunately was not the case. As a rental owner, it is important to trust the people who are maintaining your property if you do not live close by. It's a bummer that it didn't work out how we had wished but we will be renting another home next year.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for bringing those items to our attention. We had the filters and AC system addressed while you were there and we hope that you enjoyed the new gas grill we had delivered. We have since put systems in place to avoid these issues in the future.
