Our classic beach front home sits on a dune footsteps away from the beautiful Atlantic.
Watch the surf from the living room and fall asleep to the sound of waves crashing on shore.
This is a vacation the kids will never forget.
Cote d'Or is a classic beach house right on the water in Southern Shores, North Carolina. This is a ranch style home built on one level on a dune overlooking the ocean.
The home is wood-paneled and cozy in the classic OBX style. It is air conditioned and equipped with multiple televisions, wireless internet and standard kitchen appliances including a dish washer and an easy-to-use gas fireplace.
There is a deck overlooking the water with easy access to the kitchen. Additionally, there is a screened-in porch which is great for big feasts and gatherings. The house is particularly good for families with chidren as both parents and kids can go back and forth from the house to the beach in a few short steps.
Southern Shores is a residential community close to the 158 bridge so you won't have to fight long traffic jams. Easy access to grocery stores and restaurants within 2 miles. Schedule your visit to avoid the heavy bridge traffic on Saturday afternoons in the summer.
After sleeping all night to the sound of the waves, fix a cup of coffee and look out at the Atlantic where you are likely to see dolphins splashing in the waves. Grab a book, a towel, and some sunscreen... you are literally a few steps away from one of the best beaches in the United States.
Guests will have access to the entire house except one locked cabinet and the garage. Half of the garage is a laundry room that guests can use, and the other half is locked storage. There is parking for 5-6 cars in the driveway.
Interaction with Guests
We will check in with you the week before your rental starts. There is a caretaker nearby in the case of emergencies or immediate needs. Either myself or one of my siblings may be using the house just to the South during the summer. If our visits coincide, we'll usually stop by to say hello.
Southern Shores is a beautiful residential-only area nestled between Duck and Kitty Hawk. There are no hotels, only private homes. We have all the advantages of easy access to the amenities in Duck and Kitty Hawk, but none of the traffic or crowds.
The beaches are beautiful and not crowded - very much a family oriented place.
There are groceries stores and fabulous restaurants within just a few miles.
Other Things to Note
We make a BBQ available for guests. It's the kind that takes small canisters of propane. We supply one canister to get you started. You can purchase additional canisters for $5 each at Home Depot or Walmarts (about 2 miles away) but you probably won't need to for a one week stay.
No "Beach Week" rentals to groups of students.
This is a family home, you must be 30 to rent.
Washer and dryer are in the garage.
Check out is 10:00 AM after your final night.
I am all about having things arranged, planned and clear (no surprises) and Bill's communication and preparations were flawless... The home delivers as promised (features and photos). This is an ideal family experience or group getaway. Clean, comfortable and reliable. Highly recommend the home and the area as it is IDEALLY situated between Kitty Hawk (south) and the beautiful towns of Duck (north). Great running paths and cycling next to home for those who want to exercise. Better donuts (at Duck Donuts) for those that don't!
Bill was so helpful with tons of information on the house and the area.
We felt so welcome and so grateful to have shared his beach home.
It was beautiful and a true family beach house.
It was clean and very relaxing.
Bill is very nice and so wonderful with his communications with us.
Thanks Bill. We will be back!
We loved our stay at Bill's house in Southern Shores. The location is amazing; you can't get closer to the ocean without camping in a tent on the beach. The house is fantastic - it has real character, which can be hard to find in the area. We'll be back for sure.
The house was perfect for us! We enjoyed our stay immensely, thank you for everything.
This is a gorgeous home and has the best view / sound of the ocean, even with all the windows and doors closed. Very accommodating host who went above and beyond to make my stay a wonderful one. I will definitely be back!
We had a wonderful stay at Cote d'Or during the Outer Banks Marathon. The home was just as described - very comfortable and well-equipped. The proximity to the ocean provided a continuous soothing serenade of waves breaking. We saw deer and dolphins. We highly recommend this lovely home.
We had a great stay at Bill's home. 5 stars all around. Highly recommend it.
