Comfortable 4BR/3B In Southern Shores On The Outer Banks Of NC! Memories Made!
About owner/property manager
Andy and Mary have lived in the Outer Banks since 1991. We came here when Andy was stationed here in the Coast Guard. Our two sons grew up here, surfing and enjoying everything that living in a beach community has to offer. Andy actually had a seaplane tour business here years ago! He now works flying packages around for a major cargo airline. He is also an EMT and volunteer firefighter. Mary is happily retired from working as a Nurse Practitioner. I have found that swimming, hanging at the beach, volunteering at church, travelling, going to great local restaurants, attending Sting concerts and catching Pokemon keep me plenty busy! We would love to share our newly acquired Blue Turtle Beach House with you, as well as our insider tips on places to go and things to see and do on the Outer Banks. We're here to help you make some great memories. Welcome to Blue Turtle!
owner/property manager purchased this House in 2017

Further north is corolla where you can take a wild horse tour, climb the lighthouse, or tour the Whalehead Club. Just south of us is Kitty Hawk, the site of the Wright Brothers Memorial to the first flight. In Nags Head, you can climb Jockey's Ridge. Be sure to bring your kite! Jeannette's Pier is great for fishing. Heading west there is Pirates Cove Marina, where are you can hire a fishing charter or take a dolphin tour. The waterfront Marina in Manteo is great for strolling after dinner. It's also the site of a spectacular fireworks display on July 4th.

Finally the Hatteras Island Beach is make a great daytrip. Staying in Southern shores gives you access to many beaches playgrounds and parks. You are a two minute drive to the private parking lot for Chicahauk beach. You can also park at Hillcrest beach which has a new beach volleyball court. There's a great sound side wading beach! with playground and picnic tables, great for the whole family.

What makes this House unique
Blue Turtle comes well-equipped for your family. Feel free to use all of our beach equipment: chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, boogie board, cooler, toys and cart. We even have a crab pot! And for the babies/toddlers we have a highchair, a pack and play, a baby gate, and childproof locks on the kitchen cabinet where the cleaning supplies are stored. The TV in the living room, and there is another TV in one of the bedrooms. The kitchen is well supplied with everything you need to make breakfast lunch and dinner! And the new dishwasher makes cleaning up a breeze. We have a new washer and dryer on the second floor. Feel free to use them to refresh your bath towels mid/stay. Beach towels too! (Just make sure you shake out the sand outside first!) And you can pack light knowing that you can always do a load of laundry or two while you're there. Blue Turtle has several decks for you to enjoy. On the second floor there is a front sundeck as well as a covered deck near the bedrooms. On the top floor there is a private sundeck for the master bedroom and other sundeck wrapping around the back of the house and a covered porch. On the ground floor there is a covered entry from our large double carport. Between the carport and the large driveway, there is plenty of room for several cars. You can even bring your own boat! Andy and I want to make your stay as easy as possible. We will stock and initial supply of toilet paper, paper towels, soap and shampoo, as well as dishwasher detergent, cleaning products and trash bags. We also will supply all linens, including pack and play sheets and beach towels. Mary is always available for questions or concerns, either by phone or in person, as we live close by.

This has to be one of the best stays my husband and I have had! Mary was so easy to work with. We arrived early, no extra charge, with dog treats, cookies and a bottle of Prosecco for us to enjoy.
So clean, and incredibly well stocked - this is a great property. Lots of decks and outdoor spaces, very close to Harris Teeter.
Loved this home! Thank you Mary!!!
We really enjoyed hosting Vicki and her husband. Hope they make a return visit!
Wonderful Vacation Spot!
If you are visiting with your family this is the perfect home! There is everything you will need in the kitchen, etc. The house is very spacious. Mary was so gracious in placing many thoughtful ‘extras’ in the home including robes, even for the kids! My kids loved the pool and the adults the hot tub. I can not recommend enough.
Excellent property. The pool is awesome! Mary and Andy were great hosts and took care of us. Highly recommended!
The house has everything you could need and more ! Very clean
Great house with awesome amenities. Mary was great and we had everything we needed right at the house.
