About Mike and Noelle Maloney

We were lucky enough to be able to purchase this home so that we can visit our relatives who live on the OBX. When we are not in town, we invite your family to please come and enjoy our home!

Mike and Noelle Maloney purchased this house in 2015

Why Mike and Noelle Maloney chose Southern Shores

This home is great for small groups or a family that loves the beach. It has all the creature comforts you'd expect in a vacation home, but is not one of the crazy McMansions that have sprung up on the coast. This home is located close to our local family (and close to the beach!) and we stay here whenever we can get a break from the rat race and visit!

What makes this house unique

This home is great first of all due to its location, it is close to the beach but in a quiet neighborhood - a true hidden gem! The house comfortable without being overly fussy; it's reminiscent of a classic beach home, yet has all the creature comforts you need to enjoy your stay.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This home was located in the perfect location! It was a short walk to the beach but also in a nice quiet neighborhood. We were right in the middle of the northern outer Banks so we were able to take a short drive to all of the northern beach towns. The owners went above and beyond to make sure we had the best week possible. We will definitely be back and I will recommend this home to anyone visiting the obx!

Immaculate beach house! Great getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at Mike and Noelle's beach house! The house was super clean when we arrived. I loved the "beachy" decor. The outdoor shower with the changing room was a nice suprise. It only took about 5 mins to walk to the beach. We loved having access to the bikes. We biked to and from the beach a few times and also went on a scenic bike ride to the sound side. We grilled out a few nights and enjoyed the stars on the outdoor patio. Mike and Noelle were very helpful and responsive. This is such a gem of a place. We can't wait to return! Esteban and Annette

Outstanding stay. Beautiful home, excellent location, fantatic hosts. Would go back again and again!

  • 5 of 5

Mike and Noelle are the best hosts. They opened their outstanding home to me and my family and it was a fantastic experience. This was far and away the best time we ever had in the Outer Banks. The house was extremely nice, clean, comfortable, accommodating and in a quaint, excellent location near the beach and local amenities. The interior was very cheery and well designed; we also the loved the porches to dine outdoors in the evenings. We would absolutely go back and stay at Mike and Noelle's lovely home. I would strongly recommend to anyone that they look into renting this home! Thanks again, Mike and Noelle for a great time! Luke P. and Family, Chalfont, PA.

Comfy house. My kids loved it. My kids loved the games. Especially the game Moods. We paid for linens and that worked out well. Great kitchen and living area for a family to hang out. Great neighborhood if you enjoy going for walks, biking or running. There is a park in the neighborhood with a small playground, bocce ball and tennis. We did not know about that and courts were locked when I went by very early one morning. Not sure how to use them? The turtle pond was just a short walk away and one of the highlights for activity because it was free. We had 6 adults and 2 kids. Four of the adults were grandparents and the outside stairs were doable but a bit exhausting for them (especially when bringing groceries, as the kitchen is on the top floor. Great exercise though. The beach is a short walk but you have too cross Hwy 12 which can get pretty busy and you may be waiting for several minutes to get across. I was not comfortable with my parents or kids crossing alone. But not all neighborhoods had a crossing light like this one so I feel like we were in a better location than most. We grilled out alot and enjoyed the shade around the house. We drove to Duck often for dinners, ice cream and sight seeing. Great town. Shopping for groceries was very convenient and we cut thru the back of the neighborhood to go to the store instead of getting on busy HWY12. Beautiful beach. Water was chilly. Great sunrises and lots of crabs to entertain the kids. My only negative was that all 4 bedrooms were on the main level and shared 2 bathrooms. It was doable but a bit tight sharing bathrooms. The Mahoneys were great to work with. Very helpful and even left us a little welcome gift which was really sweet and thoughful. Highly recommend this home!!

Great family rental close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

The location was great; just a short walk to the beach and in the middle of the towns we wanted to visit. The beach gear provided was very nice as well the kitchen equipment and games for the kids. I would definitely stay here again.

Southern Shores is a great town that is very conveniently located right over the bridge on the Outer Banks. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood with mature trees, with the neighboring homes spread a nice distance apart.
