This house has been in our family for 42 years. Last year we did an extensive remodel. This is the first time we have ever offered our property for rent but look forward to sharing the beauty and tranquility we have enjoyed.

When my dad built this house he drew the plans on the top of a shoebox and he just kept drawing until he filled up the entire top of the box. Hence the name and the its shape.

Our family owns Charlie's Family RV park across the street and this is our 50th season there. Charlotte and Jerry

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Shoebox for the second year in a row and are already looking forward to next year! This house feels like your home away from home and it's literally on the beach. It has all you could ask for in terms of amenities but the two most outstanding aspects are the awesome owners and the great location. Charlotte and Jerry make you feel at home upon arrival with a helping hand for unloading, a tour of the house, and excellent advice about the local area. There is plenty to do in the local area and this location is very convenient to some great places to eat. The views are fantastic from the deck, the sound of the ocean so close, and the sandy beach is at your doorstep. We can't imagine staying anywhere else for our family vacation!

Wonderful Beach House!

  • 5 of 5
We cannot say enough wonderful things about our stay at the Shoebox-even a few days of rain didn't dampen our spirits! The house was even more than we anticipated-spacious and comfortable-the pictures really don't do it justice. And best of all-being right on the beach was so awesome-this was the first time we have ever stayed directly on the beach, and we will never want to go anywhere else-we've been spoiled! It was so relaxing just sitting on the deck and watching and listening to the ocean-and for my husband, sitting on the deck on the other side of the house facing beach road to watch the trucks go by! And one of the best things about the Shoebox? The wonderful owners, Charlotte and Jerry-they were so accommodating, and they did everything possible to make our visit a memorable one-from the fresh flowers and homemade bread to welcome us, to helping us bring our things in and get settled, to being on call for anything that we needed-to even mailing a hairdryer that was accidentally left behind back to our niece in Washington state-they are wonderful! They really went out of their way to make sure that we had a great time-thank you both for sharing your wonderful beach house with us. We can't wait to come back again!

2014 OBX Summer Vacation

  • 4 of 5
Had a great time visiting. The Shoebox was everything and more than we expected. The online photos simply do not do it justice. The owners greeted us with such great hospitality, fresh flowers, breakfast bread and a personal tour of the beachhouse. Our 3 year old grandson had the time of his life as did the entire family. Our vacation was cut short due to hurricane Arthur, but I would recommend the Shoebox to anyone interested in visiting the OBX.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. We were very sorry to have your stay cut short but still feel you made the right decision with the information we had. Please let your grandson know "his beach house" is just fine. It was a pleasure to meet your family and you are welcome anytime.

The beach life!

  • 5 of 5
Our family enjoyed our first visit to the Outerbanks! The Shoebox was perfect in every way possible from the clean comforts of home to the warm hospitality offered by the owners, Charlotte and Jerry. We were greeted by the owners on our first day, given a tour of the home and all the amenitities. Fresh flowers and homemade bread were an extra treat. This house is directly on the beach so you can sit on the deck and watch the waves and dolphins or walk down to the beach to enjoy the surf and sand. Our granddaughter had fun every night chasing the ghost crabs. This was our first visit to OBX so we did some touristy things, Roanoke Island Festival Park-good time for the entire family, my favorite part was the Adventure Museum. Jockey Ridge State Park was fun but HOT! I recommend you go closer to the evening hours and take a kite. Of course you must visit the Wright Brothers memorial, we did this when we got on the island while waiting to get into the house. We had some putt putt time, but be prepared to wait- we tried to go the Lost Treasure but they were extremely busy. We did get into Paradise Fun Park and had short wait times in between holes. We ate at two restaurants Hurricane Mo's and Millers Waterfront Reastaurant. Hurricane Mo's is fun and had decent food and service. Miller's food and service was fantastic I had the stuffed flounder and it was awesome! Go early, as close to 5 as possible, they get busy quickly!
We had 6 adults and one 3 year old and the house was comfortable. We never felt like we were on top of each other, the master suite is a great quiet get away! This home is perfect for families of all ages and for groups looking for a getaway. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils, pots and pans for all your cooking needs.
One more tip if you are coming from great distance- we left on Friday and stayed in Newport News, VA, we got up and left by 9 am to complete the drive into OBX. We avoided a great deal of traffic getting onto the Isalnd, there is plenty to do while waiting to get into the house. Charlotte and Jerry are very accommodating.
You must get up early at least once to capture the beautiful sunrise! We are already planning to return next year, you will not be disappointed choosing this home for your next vacation to OBX! Thank you Charlotte and Jerry!

Awesome location...beautiful inside and out!!

  • 5 of 5
This is a terrific location to enjoy a vacation on the beach! You're literally steps away and it has a great deck with very comfortable chairs that overlook the ocean. Inside, it's very homey with all the amenities. The owners, Charlotte and Jerry, were so welcoming! They took the time to show you around and make sure you have everything you need. If you forgot anything, they probably have it there (beach chairs, games, towels, even a boogie board). And on a hot day, under the house is set up to see the ocean, enjoy an adirondack chair and feel the cool breeze coming through. Don't miss this opportunity. If we come back to OBX, this is where we'll stay! Thank you, Charlotte & Jerry !!
