My sister and I booked this cottage for 2 weeks in early October. We felt at home the moment we walked in. Very nicely furnished, nicely laid out, this cottage contains everything one could possibly need to live very comfortably for the time spent there.
I have never seen such a complete collection of kitchen ware- good quality pots and pans, every appliance and gadget you can imagine.
The beds in the 2 bedrooms we used were very comfortable and everything was spotlessly clean. Joyce has notes taped to the walls above the thermostat and anything else that might need a little explanation. Light switches are labeled, making it easy to know which switch controls which light (although it took us a while to find the switch for the overhead fan in the LR) And we never did figure out how to work the TV/ DVD player since we are just not technologically knowledgable LOL
We never used the family room that is just past the laundry appliances (a very nice thing to have laundry appliances !) but we did look down the 3 steps to the room and it was very attractiveand comfortable looking. . Neither did we use the small 3rd bedroom, except to store our empty bags, but it looked very comfortable, too.
The cottage is several blocks from the beach, across the main highway through Southern Shores, so it was not a easy walk, as we had hoped it would be, but that is no problem since it is an easy drive. The only problem we encountered had nothing to do with the property- it is DARK driving along those roads at night, very few lights and easy to get lost. It also gets very foggy. stay home at night if you are like us !
Unfortunately, a medical emergency cut our time there short, but I can assure you that Southern Shores (and probably all of OBX) has a superb medical emergency response system ! Outstanding EMTs, Volunteer fire Dept., police, hospital ER. Also wonderful and kind neighbors and even exceptionally friendly and helpful store associates. I imagine it is a blessing to live there, surrounded by such people.
Have NO hesitation if you are considering rental at A SHORE DELIGHT. You won't find any place better.
House is very comfortable 5 minutes to ocean and sound comes with parking pass

Lots to do,eat, and shop. lighthouses, beaches,and wild horses. house comes with everything, linens,cooking ware,washer and dryer,outdoor shower,lots of beach chairs and umbrellas.front porch and rear deck gas bbq. lots of room, easy to rent
fair price for area, all on one floor great for families or couples. ocean rough coming off of hurricane irma, the only thing Joyce could not control, still had plenty to do. Thank you for a wonderful time and memories. John Moore
The owners of the house are absolutely the best. Had no problems whatsoever. Loved the fact that I was 2 blocks from the beach yet still had deer in the backyard. Will definitely be renting again.
Shore Delight was the most well equipped cottage I have ever rented. Joyce provides everything you need you supply the fun. You will be glad you came on Friday when you see the traffic on the road on Saturday. Just head to the beach on Saturday while everyone else is sitting in traffic. I highly recommend Shore Delight thank you Joyce.
