About Susan Mercer

My husband Tom and I live just across the Virginia state line in Chesapeake. He is a minister and I am a special education teacher in Chesapeake Public Schools. I have dreamed of owning beach property throughout my entire life. Recently we had the opportunity to make this dream come true with the purchase of Sonrise (formerly called Marjo). We have four children-three sons and a daughter. Our oldest son is married to a wonderful young lady and they have blessed us with a grandson. Our daughter is a minister in Virginia Beach. She just got married this fall. Our younger sons live with us and continue to keep us busy. We love to spend time together at the beach and are looking forward to making many special memories at Sonrise.

Susan Mercer purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Susan Mercer chose Kitty Hawk

When we began our search for beach property with our real estate agent she put together a list of about 17 properties for us to view. Sonrise was the very first cottage we saw. We both really liked it, but wanted to view other properties as well. Although it wasn't the fanciest cottage we saw, Sonrise had a compelling charm that kept calling us to return. We love the layout of the cottage with so much of the living area overlooking the ocean. We love having a private pool and a hot tub to relax in after a long day. The master bedroom has a king bed and a private balcony overlooking the ocean. Who could ask for anything more? We hope that you will enjoy our home as much as we do.

What makes this cottage unique

'Sonrise' is located near shopping, restaurants and grocery stores. This oceanside cottage is extremely convenient for a beach vacation. Beach access is only 200 ft. away. An outdoor shower is available to help you rinse off before going back into the cottage after a visit to the beach. A private pool gives you the ability to swim not only during the day, but also at night, and for those times when the ocean is just too rough to safely swim. There is nothing more relaxing than a little time in the hot tub at the end of a long day. The cottage is beautifully decorated and will allow you to peacefully relax and enjoy your time in the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

First Family Vacation to the OBX

  • 5 of 5
This was our first family vacation to the OBX and we had a fabulous time. I didn't know what to expect in renting a cottage, like how much stuff to bring, but I was quite surprised that the house had everything that we could ever need. Right down to beach chairs, hand soap, and pool floats. The house literally made us all feel at home and took any stress out of our vacation. Thank you for letting us share your home and making it our home for just a little bit. We were able to spend time with family members we only see every couple years.

Best Beach House on the OBX

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this house for many years when it was with Sun Realty and we then lost our week when we went to Disney last summer after it became VRBO. We were SOOOOO HAPPY to get back a week back in this home for a wonderful vacation on the OBX this year. The owners have done a great job of changing the place up and making it feel like home. The owners are awesome and they make sure everything is perfect for your OBX vacation. Tropical Storm Bertha hit us for the first few days but there was still enough to do with the pool and the hot tub at the home. The location is the best!! We'll be back next year and years to come!! Thank you so much to the owners for another great vacation at Sonrise!!!

Vacation with my kids and grandkids

  • 5 of 5
Our family of six had a wonderful time at Sonrise. It is a beautiful, well decorated, comfortable home. All the extra amenities made our week even more enjoyable. The kitchen good size and stocked with all the pots, pans utensils you may need. Loved the views from the deck and thoroughly enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Access to the beach was right across the street so we had it all at our fingertips. See you again next year.

The Perfect "Get-A-Way"...

The Perfect "Get-A-Way"...
  • 5 of 5
Wonderful beach cottage with all the amentities a family could want during a vacation. Spacious inside with thematic beach and ocean decorations that make you feel it was designed for you. 55 steps from the drive way to the beach chair will provide you with instant beach access and plenty of room on the private beach. Great screened in porch lets you continuously enjoy the great view of the beach and smell the ocean air when eating. The pool and hot tub are the perfect compliment after a long hot day at the beach, not to mention the cleanliness. What made the trip so nice was Suan and Tom Mercer and the hospitality they provided to lend us their beach cottage for a week in July. Certainly beats going through a realtor and the long lines on a Saturday afternoon. Highly recommend this beautiful setting and home to a family, you will want to come back as we will.

Early Summer Week

  • 5 of 5
Our Family has a 50 year history of outer banks vacations. "Sonrise" is a wonderful place for a mixed group like ours: senior married couple, our daughter (35) and her two sons (10) and (5). Sonrise offered plenty of space and amenities for our little group of 5. The owners have created a lovely, comfortable place to enjoy time away from the daily grind. It feels like “home” as soon as you walk in. We were fortunate to enjoy great weather most of the week with a few morning rains, misty, sunshiny afternoons, and cool evenings. The ocean is still COLD in early June, but that didn’t keep the children from enjoying it. We ALL enjoyed the beach, pool and hot tub the whole week. Kitchen is modern and well equipped and family and dining areas are open and comfortable – lovely decor. Reliable Wi-Fi and TV in every room. Porches are great for relaxing in both sun and shade. Walls are well insulated so a closed door = privacy. Loved the outside shower with hot water and the QUICK walk across the road to the beach. Wonderful views! In the King bedroom, even with closed door, the waves crashing on the sand could be enjoyed every night while awaiting sleep. Be aware that both bathrooms are dual access: King bedroom, loft area, and twin bedroom share one bath; queen bedroom and family area share second bath. Not a problem for close families like ours. Really nice to have washer & dryer on premises. Great selection of pool floats, beach chairs, sand toys, pool & deck chairs. Owners are great and readily available by phone or email for any questions/problems. Thanks for our welcoming gifts. We mostly cooked our own meals, but enjoyed their recommendation of Black Pelican for our last evening splurge – lovely setting and great seafood! We also had a dinner at Jolly Roger, but do not really recommend – The crab bisque was dismal, but they did deduct its cost from our bill after learning of our dissatisfaction. We visited the NC Aquarium on a rainy day; please know that everybody else vacationing with children will be doing the same on rainy days, so plan on crowds and lines on rainy days. But the Aquarium and visit to Roanoke Island was still a lovely diversion. Old Manteo is a great place to spend an afternoon. It was a wonderful week and we look forward to repeating next year.

Sonrise is located on the beach road at MP 2 in Kitty Hawk.This means that you are almost there as soon as you cross the bridge to the OBX. Beach access is only 200 ft. from the cottage. There are several restaurants close by including The Black Pelican and a local favorite, Henry's. We really enjoy Chilli Peppers at MP 5.5 on the main road, and Kill Devil Grill at MP 9.5 on the beach road. John's Drive-In on the beach road has amazing milkshakes and delicious fast food. Numerous restaurants and shops are located throughout the Outer Banks. A trip to the grocery store is a quick 5 minute drive. Tanger Outlet Center is only 14 miles away.
