About Cheryl Norman

Hello- -My husband, Vernon and I (Cheryl) are the owners of SEAcret Treasure. We've been married 27 years, have 2 adult children and live in Maryland. We have been vacationing with our children in the Outer Banks for many years. We bought this cottage in 2004. By the beginning of the rental season in 2005 we had completely transformed what had formerly been ''Fuller's Sea Breeze''. Vernon took what was then the owner's storage area and turned it into the game room. He also added the huge sundeck. I went to work inside. Sanding, painting and decorating. We try very hard to do something new every season so that it is kept in great shape. This little cottage has become one of our favorite places on earth. So many happy memories. Such a peaceful place.

Cheryl Norman purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Cheryl Norman chose Rodanthe

Rodanthe has always been our family's favorite vacation spot so a cottage here was a dream come true. The beaches are simply beautiful. We chose this house because it is located on a very quiet side street so close to the ocean. It is also close to the Liberty Station (convenience store/gas station). So once here you don't really need to drive. It is short walk to the pier or Pea Island in the other direction. The views are amazing. The street is quiet. Perfect!

What makes this cottage unique

Morning coffee or an evening glass of wine on the swing are pure pleasure. The ocean views and the breeze as you swing- - -it really is so relaxing. We keep 2 bikes in the laundry room for guests use- -this makes trips to the convenience store a bit more fun! We also keep a variety of beach items for use by guests. The views from the house and being so close to the beach are sure to lift your spirits. Part of the deck is covered so you can even enjoy being outside on a rocking chair in the rain! Even a rainy day here is a good day! It is a great place to be.

We just returned from our first trip to OBX and were fortunate enough to have found this cottage. We could not have been happier with our accommodations! The owners were so nice to work with.

OUTSTANDING!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family chose SEAcret Treasure for our annual reunion. It was our first get together on the Outer Banks, but certainly won't be our last. Family drove in from Illinois, New York and Florida and we were quite worn out from our travels and found a wonderful place waiting for us. SEAcret Treasure was absolutely immaculate and extremely well equipped and we felt so welcomed by all the personal touches. There was a hurricane in July that hit the area and did some minor damage that the owners informed us of before we arrived. We could not believe that they even mentioned it as is was so minor we didn't even notice. This shows how much it means to the owners that they provide a beautiful home and really care about those who spend time there. I Highly recommend this beautiful beach home to anyone looking for a fabulous place to stay!! Some points to consider: Fabulous view of the ocean, well equipped with everything from bicycles, beach chairs and beach toys to Kitchenware to prepare fabulous meals!! There are so many more positives I could add but I'm exhausted from such a great week at SEAcret Treasure!! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!

This is the perfect spot! And this beach cottage is the perfect size for a family of our size. My wife and I - along with our 2 year old son and his Grandmother. It is hard to find a home this size - this close to the beach. Seacret Treasure was perfect. Just a few homes back from the water's edge - Ocean views were easy to catch from both the second floor and roof top decks - where the stars also shined bright at night. We arrived just one week after a hurricane struck - and encountered a minor emergency in the laundry room. But the owner was on the road as soon as we notified him - and the problem fixed by days end. The game room was a hit - and the perfect man-cave escape - with a TV - an air hockey table - foosball and refrigerator I stocked full of "adult beverages." Bicycles and beach toys and umbrellas were there for us to use and share. A great Weber grill helped making BBQing a pleasure. And if the country store down the street along Route 12 didn't have what you were looking for - there is a good chance you really didn't need it. We will be back!

The Perfect Quiet Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We were pleased to find a smaller sized cottage for our family of 3 near the beach as so many NC properties cater to large groups. SEAcret Treasure is a clean and immaculately maintained home steps from the beach. Although not beachfront, there are clear water views from the outside decks and we spent many happy hours outside enjoying the ocean breezes while reading and dining.

Cheryl, the owner, was a delight to work with, and even went above and beyond, emailing us a roster of local events in anticipation of our arrival.

We were looking for a quiet and sort of remote location and SEAcret Treasure fit the bill. If you are looking for more activities and nearby amenities, you may want to look in the extreme northern or extreme southern ends of the island.

Although there is a mini-market/gas station within walking distance of the house, the nearest grocery store (Food Lion) is in Avon, about a 20 minute drive south. Restaurants, shopping, ice cream, chartered fishing trip, and mini-golf all involved somewhat of a drive.

The only negative for us was the 4pm Saturday check-in time. In our years of renting beach houses, we've never encountered a check-in time later than 2pm. After being told by numerous people that we should be across the bridge going south before 10am or we would be stuck in traffic all day, we were dutifully on our way by 9:30am. However this left us with a vast expanse of time to kill before we could take possession of the house. We dined, shopped, did some sightseeing and ate ice cream but still had about two hours to kill before we could do an extensive grocery store run and make our way to the house. Coming from Connecticut and after two days on the road, we were ready to settle in.

We realize the cleaning service cannot be everywhere at once and that some houses are going to be cleaned before others, but this is something we now know to inquire about when renting a house in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review of SEAcret Treasure! It is such a special place to spend time. We are so sorry to hear the Check-In time caused you problems. The Check-In/Out times are stated on page one of our Rental Agreement. The 4pm Check-In time is unavoidable as the housekeeping staff needs adequate time to clean and prepare the cottage for the incoming guests. We believe it is well worth the wait to arrive to an wonderfully clean cottage. This is our first year with VRBO after being very let down by the major property management companies. They overcrowded our cottage and the cleaners did and absolutely terrible job of cleaning it. We are so happy to now have Shore Details doing the cleaning of SEAcret Treasure and they do an awesome job! Almost all of the cottages/houses on Hatteras Island have a check in of 4pm - -some with an even later check-in of 5:30 -6 in the summer months. We have always just brought a cooler and spent time on the beach until check-in time. We always recommend that our guests bring a cooler with enough food to get them through the weekend as the grocery stores are so crowded on Saturdays and Sundays--many times items sold out. A trip to the Food Lion is always much more pleasant on Monday after the rush and with shelves restocked. We appreciate you taking the time to write a review for SEAcret Treasure and are so happy that your family enjoyed your stay! Thank you again for choosing SEAcret Treasure for your OBX vacation! Cheryl & Vernon

My husband and I stayed with our three daughters. The house is very nice and clean. We enjoyed that we were so close and within walking distance to the beach. It is such a quiet, peaceful street. I would get up every morning before every one else, pour my coffee (I set the timer on the coffee maker) and sit on the deck and read.

We ate the majority of our meals at the house and the kitchen was well equipped with dishes, pots and pans. We enjoyed family game night in the evenings with the games that were at the house, so fun!

There is plenty to do in the area. We went fishing, clamming and seashell hunting. We just had a short walk to enjoy time at the beach. We liked that there was a beach umbrella and chairs at the house to use. My husband used the outdoor fish cleaning station for his catch of the day. It was so beneficial to use the outdoor shower whenever we returned from the beach. You can't escape the sand!
