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

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.

'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.

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.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you had a great week in the Outer Banks at Sonrise. Nice weather is an added plus when you stay at the beach. Thanks so much for your many compliments! We appreciate you taking such good care of our cottage during your stay. We would love to have you as our guests again when you return to the Outer Banks of NC.

RELAXING RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 adults and 10 month grandson had a wonderful stay. The house was perfect for our families needs. The cool days were perfect for the pool and hot tub and the beach access was wonderful for taking an almost toddler to the beach. The decks were great for hanging out during nap times. We could always find sun or shade, whichever we preferred. The house was clean, well appointed, and Susan had lots of helpful information available (restaurants, sights, etc.). We certainly enjoyed our trip and would book again if available when we could visit. Since my husband and I had never been to the Outer Banks before, it was the perfect location for seeing all the sights we wanted to see...30ish miles north, we visited the Currituck Lighthouse; 30ish miles south, we were at Roanoke Island and Bodie Island Lighthouse. Yet, we always felt we were away from all the hustle and bustle when we returned to the house. There were also MANY excellent restaurants less than 10 miles from the house. High Cotton BBQ (walking distance), The Black Pelican, Kill Devils Grill, and Café Franco will be repeats when we are able to return.

VERY NICE STAY

  • 5 of 5
the pictures on VRBO do not do this place justice. much nicer in person. this house is almost as good as beach front. from the master bedroom upstairs, you can leave the sliding glass door open and hear the waves at night. so close to the beach and it is so homey. it is the nicest place we have had at the beach and everything in the house works well. furniture is comfy. the master bedroom deck is on the 3rd floor facing the beach and great for ocean views......highly recommend this to anyone. the owners are very nice and you can tell it reflects their taste as well kept as it is. owners were very easy to communicate as we called them a few times while there to let them know how nice it was.

GREAT HOUSE AND LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Thanks very much for sharing your house. We had a great time in the OBX this year largely due to this comfortable and clean house. We had a long drive in but felt right at home when we entered. The location is great, right across the road from the beach and easy access. The pool was a great relief to all of us.. the hot tub was also enjoyed. We went out a few times to dinner and liked both Owen's and Basnight (which was recommened by Susan) very much. (However you do need to plan the best time to arrive or what day since all restaurants are crowded this time year... We lucked out on both so no issue for us). We went to the aquarium, thought it was a little small but great view of some sharks and got to pet the stingrays. Our children are not young so perhaps a longer visit if you have younger children. We will be sure to rent again next time we travel to OBX. Thanks again.

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.
