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 Cape Hatteras

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.

Incredible Cottage, Awesome Location and Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Well, I cannot say enough about the lovely cottage by the ocean. This cottage is just perfect of us. It is very well maintained and loved, very clean and has all the necessities that are needed for the perfect relaxing vacation. We had two of the best weeks enjoying fishing, relaxing, sight seeing and great walks on the beach. The weather was awesome and the ocean felt great. We have been coming down to Rodanthe for 10 years and we are so lucky that most of the years we have been able to stay at this perfect cottage. As always, thanks to Cheryl and Vernon for sharing with us. See you next year!

A week on the Outer Banks

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two adult sons spent a wonderful week at Seacret Treasure. The home was as described. It was well stocked with all you would need (once we found the bread knife on that high shelf). The location was great! It is a long drive to get there and because of that the beach is uncrowded. None of that "try to find a place to put your blanket" I always had my morning coffee out on the deck and even got down to the beach a few days to see the sun rise.

The Wright Brothers National Park was well worth a visit.

Cheryl was great to work with and a very sweet lady. I hope to return soon.

What a GREAT place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the Outer Banks and we could not have chosen a better place to stay. Walking to the beach in a minute, coming back to a beautiful house for lunch, great views, game room and I could go on but we certainly want to come back. Cheryl was great to work with, answered any questions we had and provided a place that made our vacation perfect. If you want a day trip to Ocracoke or head up to Nags Head for the day the house is a perfect location and has my wife said "the best beach vacation we have ever been on and the best beach house we have ever stayed in." Thank you Cheryl for a wonderful stay and will be in contact for our 2018 vacation. Bob, Alicia, Cassidy and Halle!

What a Treasure!!

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely wonderful cottage. Very nicely furnished, very clean and with so many little extras it felt like a home away from home. There were books of all types for any kind of reader, dvds, board games and a fully stocked kitchen with pretty much everything you need to cook a nice meal. We are a family of 4 and the house fit us just perfectly. The game room downstairs was great for the kids, to keep them entertained during the times we were back from the ocean. The ocean is so close there's no problem with going back and forth throughout the day. The top deck has excellent views and was a great place to sit with our morning coffee, watching the sun come up over the water. At the end of our week we were relaxed, tan and so not ready to leave!We had a fabulous time and were very comfortable at Seacret Treasure. We would highly recommend to anyone!

Absolutely Fabulous!!

Wonderful cottage just seconds from the ocean. We had everything we needed for a great stay. The cottage was even nicer than in the pictures. My kids and my mom all loved every second and we were so sad to leave. Best vacation ever! Cheryl was so easy to work with...very organized and detail oriented. Great experience all around. Highly recommended!!

We completely enjoyed our time at the SEAcret Treasure!! The location is amazing. A few short steps from the beach so you can go back and forth all you need. The size of the house was perfect. The decks are amazing with great views. The kids had a great time and enjoyed the game room. The house is so clean and easy to maintain during our stay. It's very pretty inside and out. I also think its the best area to be in. As we traveled around it seemed to be the best location for privacy and access to everything we needed. I'd rate it 10 starts if I could. :-)
