Second nature retreat

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week at your obx home. The kitchen was fully equipped. The house was well appointed and clean. The weekending 3/23/18 was colder than expected for late March so we spent more time indoors. The home location was convenient for travel to Corolla/Carova, south to Naggs Head and Kitty Hawk and west away from OBX. Off season was a great time to visit the area without the influx of summer vacationers. There was plenty to do and see or just relax. It was a great place to wind down with all of the comforts of home. Thank you. Mike and Pam

Excellent Home for relaxing. Great location for visiting anywhere along Outer Banks.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to feel away from it all, but still be near enough to run out for supplies. House is well laid out and is stocked with all you could need. Screened porch was a great place to relax. Upper deck on roof was fantastic. We were here in October so no crowds to fight. Overall a great place for Outer Banks exploring. Would go back in a minute.

Beautiful Area. Great Location.

  • 5 of 5

The house is clean. The outside well maintained. We loved the kayaks. Close to beach parking. Short drive to Duck and also the other way to Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hill. Our pup loved it too, so glad we were able to have her with us. **A side note Southern Shores does not allow dogs on beach all day. Just before 9am and after 6pm.
