About Keturah Epps
The Epps are high school sweethearts who have been married for over 20 years with two teenagers. Their love of the beach fueled their goal-oriented personalities, hence, FINALLY....Sandy Bottoms beach cottage.
Keturah Epps purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Keturah Epps chose Kill Devil Hills
A beach cottage had been a dream of The Epps for years and finally when this low level bungalow became available, it seemed perfect especially with bad knees in the family! :) There were so many ironic things that pointed them towards Sandy Bottoms. It's quaintness and proximity to the beach made it clear that there would be lots of fun times at the beach to experience!
What makes this Cottage unique
Location,location,location !!! Close walk to the beach,grocery store , Jolly Roger Restaurant and The Sea Ranch Resort . Also, the big back porch could accommodate rainy days in a hammock..

Sandy Bottoms is a very comfortable and cozy beach cottage.
Great stay! Comfortable, cozy! Updated and renovated...the owners have really worked to make Sandy Bottoms a very good place to stay. Close to the beach...pet friendly and good wifi and tv connectivity. New deck in the back and a great porch. Really a good value and very comfortable!
Sandy Bottoms Beach Cottage was everything I was hoping for and more!
Sandy Bottoms Beach cottage was very clean, well equipped, and charming. A new deck was added to the back, which was enjoyed immensely, as was the large, delightful screened in back porch with dining room table and large hammock. The outdoor shower is heavenly. The very close proximity to the beach was much appreciated. My dog loved the back yard without sand spurs (an amazing feat in the OBX), and laying on the deck in the sun.
The beds are very comfortable in the home, and the kitchen is well equipped. The beach decor is so much fun as are all of the seashells around the property. The front porch with bench is inviting and is a nice feature as well. There are plenty of tv’s in the cottage, along with cable and WiFi. The owners are very prompt with communications and are very accommodating.
The location in Kill Devil Hills is very convenient to shops, grocery stores, great restaurants, the movie theater, and most anything you hope to see in the OBX.
I look forward to returning to Sandy Bottoms Beach cottage often.
Joan, thank you for your kind review ! We try each year for an upgrade/remodel and this year was the back decks that were in bad shape! Next year we are hoping for a bathroom and kitchen is in the future! So hope you can return soon! Kindly- The Epps
Great place to stay,
The house was perfect for my family and some friends I really enjoyed the back porch it was the place to sit and hangout and in the evening it was a cool breeze for the bedroom. I will definitely stay here again.
Thanks Michelle ! So glad you decided to stay at Sandy Bottoms! Hope you enjoyed our new deck out back! Looking forward to you coming back!
Homey and Comfortable!!
We thoroughly enjoy staying in your home Sandy Bottom. With all the comfort of home we are very comfortable and plan on returning in the near future. Thank you for allowing us to share your home. Sherry and Dennis Thomas
It was a cold week I know and the snow came after you left! I think you all have stayed before. So glad you are happy and we are thankful you will be coming back!
Perfect winter getaway!
My family and I stayed for 3 days right after Christmas and we were so happy that we picked Sandy Bottoms for our stay. It was REALLY cold outside so we spent most of our time hanging out in the cozy cottage playing games and just spending time with one another. The owners had put out Christmas decorations, which we all thought was a great personal touch and made it feel so homey and nice. I really hope that we will be able to come back again and enjoy this cottage when it is warmer - that back porch and the hammock was calling my name the whole time we were there! Comfy beds, great location, new appliances in the kitchen, nicely decorated throughout, super fast response times from the owners ... what more could you ask for? This place gets an A+ from my entire family.
Jennifer, so happy that you all enjoyed your stay being the first time with us at Sandy Bottoms. We so appreciate your kind words and do hope you can come back when it’s warmer. Sincerely, The Epps
Very nice, comfortable beach home
We had a very short visit, thanks to Hurricane Maria, but we enjoyed the short time we had at Sandy Bottoms. Very well appointed with all the amenities you could want, and such a nice, well-cared for cottage. I especially loved the hammock on the covered porch. And so close to the beach, just a short walk across the street and you're there. Keturah's communication goes above and beyond, making sure that all your needs are met, and when I had a question, she was quick to respond. I am looking forward to a longer visit to OBX next time, and I am planning to return to Sandy Bottoms.
This cottage is so conviently located to EVERYTHING! You can walk to the Food Lion , movie theater, restaurants and Kmart. We have a lifeguard stand at our direct beach access. The Sea Ranch Bistro is right at the entrance to beach for lunch! You can walk to the Jolly Roger for breakfast for one of their famous Bloody Marys or Goombays for great fish tacos. All the perks of the beach!
