"This was our first trip to the Outer Banks and it was absolutely fabulous! We loved the beaches, the warm ocean water and the big waves! Everything at the house was perfect; so beautiful and relaxing. We must admit it's very hard to leave."

4 BR House on the OBX NC with Sound Views and Canal in Back
average rating of 5.0 based on 28 reviews

Lovely, quiet house

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely Easter weekend at the Bearden house. The house is larger than it appears in the photos and is very clean and warmly decorated. It is on a quiet street right across the street from a small playground, which our seven-year-old loved. The playground is right next to the sound (with a small sandy beach and big wooden chairs to sit in and stare at the water. We especially enjoyed taking the big canoe out on the canal that is right in the backyard and exploring the area by paddling around. Rhetta was very responsive, friendly, and helpful. We highly recommend this house!

We will be coming back!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home we return to year after year. It is in a wooded serene neighborhood with gorgeous sunset views of the sound across the street. Our children enjoy playing with the toys and watching movies in the "kids'" room as well as playing in the soundfront park across the street. We enjoy riding our bikes to the beach and paddling the provided canoe from the canal behind the house into the sound. There is a lovely Crow's Nest up top where we enjoy watching the sun set over the sound. The owners are also very friendly and helpful. We will keep coming back!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I took my family to the OBX over spring break and stayed at the Bearden house. We enjoyed it so much we came back two months later to stay again and will definatly be back in the future. Great location tucked away on a beutiful queit street, yet close to everything or just a small drive away. The house has a wonderful homey feel to it , is spacious , and has just about everything you would ever need. Jim and Rhetta were great with communicating with emails leading up to and during the trip to make sure everything was in order. Rent with confidence that you will love this house and the OBX !

Can't wait to go back!!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing house! As I'm sitting here writing this review, I'm looking at the pictures and wishing I was back there. This was my first time renting a vacation home and I was a little nervous but, the owner made me feel completely at ease, answering all my questions and gave prompt responses. As I said, the house itself is beautiful and in a beautiful location. It was all I was hoping for and more!! The worst thing about it was that I didn't want to go home after my week stay. I almost didn't leave a review because I don't want to many people to find out about this treasure!! I will just make sure I book early for our next vacation to the Outer Banks!!

The best house in Southern Shores

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting this house off and on for the last 7 years and we really enjoy it. The house is spacious and has everything you need. My boys have practically grown up in this house and have wanted to go back every year. My husband loves the front porch swing. I love the view of the sound from the front porch and from the top deck. Beautiful sunsets. Quiet location with playground across the low traffic street. The sound is across the street and it has a sandy beach for the kids to play in also. Owners are great to work with. We would highly recommend this house-it feels like you are visiting a friend's home. It has a very warm and welcoming atmosphere due to the owner's personal touches with the furnishings and decorations. Love the pictures on the walls-they all seem to have a little story to tell. Can't wait to rent again.

Favorite spot on the Outer Banks

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed at over a dozen beach homes (and several campgrounds) over the years at OBX, Sue and I agree that N. Dogwood Tr. is the coolest, which is why we returned this year to celebrate my 60th birthday. Southern Shores is a wonderful little community with a perfect location, location, location & we believe this home has one of the best locations in SS. They are making some nice improvements at the park across the street (you almost feel like it's your own private place). It's our favorite romantic spot to watch the sun set over the water. It takes your breath away! Because of this and so much more, we love it here.
