Great location--a short walk or bike ride (approximately 300 yards) gets you to the beach where there is plenty of room to play and relax! (We are on the 'oceanside' of Duck Road - there are no streets to cross to get to the beach.) Back at the house, a fabulous hot tub, screened in porch, and comfortable interior with unique beach murals complete your summer vacation.
In 2011 and before, this house was rented through Southern Shores under the name 'Spoiled Rotten.' We have added a flat screen TV and an ipod docking stereo, and opened up a bonus room for kids' play, work or quiet reading to enhance the features of this already family-friendly cottage. In 2012 we added a new high quality king size mattress for the master bedroom.
WiFi available throughout the property. No charge, unlimited # of users. Cell phone booster antennae installed in 2012 provides strong cell phone reception throughout the house.
We rent on a Friday to Friday schedule. Our experience is that traffic is lighter on Fridays than on Saturdays getting onto and around the Outer Banks. Saturday is typically the heaviest traffic day each week during the summer down there, so we opted for the Friday to Friday schedule.
L1: 2 BR (MBR w/K, bath w/tub & shower; 1 w/Q), hall bath (w/shower). Living/dining/kitchen area, 2 ceiling fans & skylights, 2 color CATV (living area and MBR).
L2: 3 BR (2 w/Ts & CF, 1 w/2 bunk sets),1 bath (w/shower).

We love relaxing at the outer banks and have always thought Southern Shores was the best of all locations: uncrowded beaches and close to the bridge so that there is no long wait in weekend traffic up Duck Road. We also wanted to be on the ocean side of the road so that the kids and visitors could stroll down the beach any time of the day or evening without having to cross any major roads. This house fits the bill perfectly.
Easy days on the beach, relaxing in the hot tub surrounded by the trees, morning coffee on the deck, family dinners and games, biking to Duck. The boys kill lots of time skim boarding and riding waves.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at this vacation home with our children and grandchildren. The rooms and furnishings were perfect in every way, and the walking / riding distance to the beach was just right. This was our second visit to the Outer Banks and we loved our vacation as much the second time as the first. The listing description and pictures were accurate and the property was clean and well-maintained. We would recommend this property to friends and relatives without reservation.
We (2 adults/ 4 kids) enjoyed our vacation in this comfortable house on the Outer Banks in late October. It was located on a quiet dead-end-road, surrounded by trees and only a very short walk to the beach.
The spacious house is well-equipped and very well kept. We noticed many nice details - like the hand-painted murals and plenty of kitchen utensils.
We liked the hot tub on the porch. It was great looking into the trees from the hot tub and to relax after a day on the beach or a day of sightseeing. We appreciate that the hot tub had been cleaned and serviced on the day of our arrival. It was "ready to use". The beach is clean and uncrowded. You can walk for hours and enjoy the quiet. We slept very well in the comfortable beds - the quality of the mattresses was remarkable.
It was a great time for all of us and we would recommend this house.
This was a great house for our family. We especially enjoyed the shady porch and the hot tub. The proximity to the beach, to stores and attractions was great as well. We liked the fact that the house was close to everything but yet on a very quiet street.
Everything about this cottage exceeded my expectations! Great location to the beach. Not far from stores and restaurants. My family enjoyed every minute of our stay! Thank you Jean!
Was a great week. House was furnished as described and well kept. Would highly recommend. Close to the beach and grocery stores.
One of the best features of this property is the access to the beach. The second best feature is the king size bed. We slept peacefully in it, probably the overall best bed we have ever slept in. My husband enjoyed stargazing on the second deck. The hot tub felt wonderful after spending time at the beach. Very convenient for shopping and also for heading out to tour the outer banks.
See dolphins and pelicans routinely cruising down the beaches.
