Beach House, 7 Bedrooms, 7.5 Baths, (Sleeps 20)
Ernie Brown, owner
Why Ernie Brown, owner chose Southern Shores
We have 5 beach houses and this is our favorite. It is sooooo close to the beach and sooooo close to stores, restaurants and lots of shopping! This home is as close to the beach and as close to stores as anyone could hope for without paying 40% more for an oceanfront. If you like a private pool this is it!!! With the lush greenery and other houses not very close, this has the most private pool and hot tub area we have ever seen. We think you will love it!
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
There's so much to LOVE about Park Place!!
Our family spent 7 fabulous days at Park Place the first week of June! There were 8 adults and 6 children (ages 2-10) and it was a perfect house for all of us. It was very clean and I loved the open living space on the top floor. Being right across the street from the ocean we had a wonderful view from the balcony and with all the windows there was a great view from inside the house as well. Quite conveniently, there is a cross walk right at the end of the driveway which makes crossing the street very safe and it's approximately 150' to the beach. Since there's no public parking, it's almost like having a private beach since it's only used by the the area vacationers. Our kids had a wonderful time playing in the waves, the sand, picking up shells, and finding ghost crabs. The kitchen was well stocked and we had no need to purchase anything. If I had any suggestion at all, it would be to replace the vacuum. I like to keep the floors well swept and it didn't want to cooperate to well :-) The owner of Park Place, Ernie Brown, instructed me to work directly with him during our stay. This worked out very well, because I would always prefer to work with the homeowner. Due to a scheduling error, the pool vendor had not been out to clean the pool/hot tub prior to our arrival, however, as soon as I notified Ernie, the issue was immediately handled. The pool area is so private and everyone had a great time in both the pool and hot tub. Thank you Ernie for being such a great homeowner. My family and I plan on coming back to the OBX next year and as soon as we've agreed on a date, we'll be looking to book Park Place again!
Park Place was an excellent choice for our family of 17 in mid April. We had never taken a trip altogether, and with 6 kids (6-12) amongst us, we wanted to be sure that we would all have space to be together, but also to ourselves.
The house set up was perfect - kids on the bottom floor near the pool, the pool table and their shared room. The second floor housed the adult couples, and my husband and I had the top floor room. Individual bathrooms for each room was extremely nice to have, and each of the adult rooms all had sliding door access to the wrap around porch. The bed linens have all been upgraded in comparison to the pictures posted in the advertisement. The kitchen was fully stocked, even had a crock pot! The living room on the 3rd floor was comfortable, bright, and there was even an extra little nook tucked around the back side with a really comfy couch for a little separation from the group. The kids were delighted to find a closet FULL of swim floats and beach toys. Ernie had opened the pool early for us, and even thought the weather stayed in the 60s mostly, the pool was at a great temp and the kids went in it every day. ERnie was very responsive during our stay, I contacted him 2 or 3 times and he got back to me within hours. When I reported one thing was not working it was fixed the very next morning.
The beach is truly just a jaunt, basically turn right out the driveway to the nearby crosswalk and the walkway to the beach is just on the other side of the house right across the street. Walmart and Food Lion are literally 1.5 miles away - maybe even less, as well as a Rite Aid and several other conveniences. For the one rainy day we had, the movie theatre (10 cinema) was only about 10 minutes away, and a little further was a very modern bowling alley.
The house also had some puzzles, books, and games. We brought one from our home state of NH and left it behind for future guests to enjoy. Can't say enough good about this vacation for us! It was a great first experience for all of us meeting up to be there together, and very affordable as well. We even contacted a local photographer and photos done breaking down the whole group onto individual families as well, and then grouping cousins, siblings, grandparents with the kids, etc.
Thank you Ernie for helping us out along the way and facilitating our first on the road reunion!
Clean, spacious & fun
We had a fabulous family vacation at this beautiful home. Conviently located just a short walk to the beach, short drive to Duck and Corolla and close to the Walmart and Food Lion. There is plenty of room for multiple families to have together time as well as quiet time. The pool and hot tub was a great bonus. The pool especially with the little ones. House is well equipped with all household needs.
Thank you for allowing us to make beautiful memories in your home.
Great house with a great view. Very close to the beach, the bridge and shopping.
We really enjoyed our time at the beach. Park place is a very nice house, comfortable and clean. Our kids loved the pool and hot tub.
Had a wonderful vacation @ Park Place, Southern Shores!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Park Place in the Outer Banks last week (8/28-9/4/16). Our family (20 members in total) were comfortable in the house with no complaints! The house's layout provided privacy for personal quiet time and a lot of shared space for together/family time!! We had a wonderful vacation!
The Griffin Family (NJ, FL, ME)
This was a perfect house for our family, it was very close to the beach and large enough for all of us. The owner is very helpful and friendly. The water slide was awesome for everyone in the house (even all the adults)! This is a great property and is in a great location near all the stores so no one has to waste any vacation time! We are staying again next year, and would recommend this house to any family looking to vacation in North Carolina.
