About the property

5 Bedroom 5.5 bath Home Close to Beach with Private Pool and Hot Tub

Welcome to Aalsmeer!

It's really true location is everything. This well appointed beach home is conveniently located just minutes away from the Wright Memorial Bridge, with easy access (600 yards) to the beach and shopping. Our house is in an excellent location, with quiet private surroundings in a low traffic area. It's only a few minutes walk to the life-guarded beach with a pedestrian light to get you there safely. The location provides easy access to shopping areas (Harris Teeter, Food Lion, and Walmart less than 2 miles away), and convenient beach parking (in case you don’t want the short walk).

With 5 bedrooms, including 3 master suites, a private pool area, hot tub and game room, your family will have plenty of space to spread out and enjoy a wonderful vacation. Our floor plan is unique, affording more privacy in two of the master suites. Feel free to contact us for a virtual tour (with a mouse over floor plan) of our house. You can enjoy the sunrise/sunset on over 1,100 square feet of decking. There is a private pool area with plenty of poolside seating and a hot tub. Neighborhood amenities include, tennis courts, Bocce ball and volley ball courts, marinas, parks, and playgrounds. And we are centrally located to Outer Banks golf areas.

About Judy Carter

Our family has owned and enjoyed wonderful times at Aalsmeer since 2009. We love the fact that so many families have enjoyed vacationing at Aalsmeer over the years, and heartily welcome our return guests.

Best wishes for a wonderful vacation.

Judy Carter purchased this house in 2009

Why Judy Carter chose Southern Shores

We love Southern Shores because it's a family oriented community and an ideal location. Even in the heaviest traffic times, you can get to the store quickly. There are walking and biking paths throughout the community, and the beach is lifeguarded and well maintained. There are also some excellent restaurants close by.

What makes this house unique

We love Aalsmeer because it's in a quiet area with lots of trees. The house is on a dead end street so there is minimal traffic. The pool area is private, and the hot tub is in close proximity. We also like the split floor plan with two of the master bedrooms on their own floors. All but one of the bedrooms open onto decks in the rear of the house. It's a spacious floor plan with room for gathering and places to be off by yourself.

Thoroughly enjoyed the house and amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing home -- it was more than enough space for our family of 8 adults and two toddlers. The house was well-stocked (more so than many houses we've rented) with quality kitchen accessories and beach items. It is beautifully furnished and comfortable. Loved the pool and hot tub as well !! Judy was an excellent host and easy to work with. We all loved it and hope to go back!

Beautiful home, great location

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our group of 10! Plenty of space and very well-stocked. The pool and hot tub area were great too. The home is walking distance to the beach, but we found it easier to drive and park a little closer with the passes provided. Judy was very easy to get in touch with before the trip and made sure to check-in once we arrived to make sure everything was ok. We had no issues at all!

A Great Week in Southern Shores

  • 4 of 5

We spent a good week in Southern Shores! This house was great. I loved the floor plan, the layout and the configuration of the bedrooms. It was perfectly suited to our family. The pack n' plays were an added plus. We cooked dinner every night of our stay but one, and we had everything we needed in the kitchen to prepare and serve the food. There were plenty of TV's for everyone to find something to watch, if they chose to do so. Probably one of our favorite spots of all was outdoors, poolside! The pool is large and beautiful! And the gas grill on the upper deck near the kitchen made cooking on the outside very convenient. The only thing that I was a bit disappointed in was the location of the house itself. It isn't as close to the beach as I thought it was, and it was necessary to cross a busy road to get to the beach. I prefer staying in a house that is on the beach side. However, we made it work and with a bit of extra effort from everyone in our family, we spent several great afternoons oceanside. Overall, the week was a very good one - wonderful family time!

Great family vacation at the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Aalsmeer. We had 6 adults and 5 children. There was lots of room for everyone. The children loved the hot pool or hot tub as the adults call it. We had a couple of questions and Judy, the owner responded quickly. There house was very clean and we'll stocked. Would love to stay here again sometime.
