Southern Shores, NC

Just south of Duck and just north of Kitty Hawk is the town of Southern Shores. Comprised of mostly single-family homes, with very little commercial development, and a marvelous stretch of beach, Southern Shores is a beautiful town. Of all the towns on the Outer Banks, Southern Shores has one of the lowest-density oceanfront homes behind a protective dune line. 

Our Outer Banks vacation rentals in Southern Shores range from luxury oceanfront homes to contemporary vacation rentals to rustic flat-tops.

One of the benefits of staying in Southern Shores is getting away from all of the busyness of restaurants, shopping, and other places.  Since it's mostly residential Southern Shores provides more of an "esape from it all" feel, while at the same time restuarants and shopping are a short drive away.

Southern Shores Attractions:

Southern Shores Bike Trails

The Southern Shores offer bike paths that run through scenic streets of beach neighborhoods.

Southern Shores Amenities

Southern Shores beach accesses are private and are used only by residents and vacationers staying in the town. While staying in a Southern Shores Realty vacation rental, visitors also have access to the Civic Association amenities which include soundside marinas, a Westside park with playground equipment, community tennis courts (if specified in property description), and oceanfront parking area at life-guarded beach.

Vacation Home Locations in Southern Shores

Vacation Homes in Southern Shores are categorized as follows:

Oceanfront

The first row of homes with nothing between the home and the ocean except a protective dune. Because of the protective dunes, not all oceanfront properties have ocean views (check individual property description for details).

Semi-Oceanfront

These homes are one lot back from the ocean. Although they are only one lot from the ocean, there may be another house or a street between the house and the beach.

Seacrest Village

A family favorite – just a short walk down your street and you are at the water’s edge. These units are located on quiet streets that end at a walkway to the beach. With no thru traffic, this is a great area for families with children. Southern Shores Realty manages many homes that are adjacent to each other in Seacrest Village making it a great location for a family reunion as well.

Circle Drive

Located on a beautifully vegetated horseshoe drive, off Hickory Trail, between Ocean Blvd. and Duck Road, these Oceanside homes are within easy walking distance to the beach.

Ocean View Loop and Skyline Rd.

Properties on these streets have easy access to shopping and restaurants in Southern Shores and nearby Kitty Hawk. Just north of the Rt. 158/Rt. 12 split, these homes are easy to get to and just a short distance from the ocean. Access to the beach is across Ocean Blvd., via a pedestrian crosswalk at the end of each street.

Westside

These homes are located on the Westside of Duck Road/Rt. 12 North. Many offer private pools and all have access to the oceanfront community parking lot with life-guarded beach.

Chicahauk

Located in a quiet neighborhood in the beachzone, most Chicahauk units are within comfortable walking distance to the beach. All homes in Chicahauk have access to community tennis courts and a playground for small children. There is also a secluded parking area approximately 500’ from the beach, specifically for Chicahauk owners and guests.

Dunes

Feel the ocean breezes in these properties perched among the dunes. From this vantage point many homes offer horizon ocean views or sound views. Oceanfront parking is available for your convenience at either the Hillcrest or Ocean Blvd./Duck Rd. accesses. For added recreation a playground sits at the corner of Hickory Trail and Sea Oats Trail, and community tennis courts at the corner of Hillcrest Dr. and Sea Oats Trail (check individual property description for tennis access).

Soundside

These homes nestled in the dunes of Southern Shores are less than 1 block from the Currituck Sound. Along with fantastic sound and sunset views, many also have horizon ocean views.

Soundfront

You'll enjoy spectacular sunset views from these soundfront homes in Southern Shores. The Currituck Sound is out your back door. These shallow waters are great for wading, kayaking, sailing, or windsurfing.
