We just left our slice of heaven on the beach and its name was 85 ocean blvd. First - when we arrived last saturday to pick up our keys, we were taking a chance that we would have to wait a long time considering it was only 0830 in the morning. However, the two very nice ladies behind the counter said "that ones ready!". ..and pretty much that was the start of our best vacation we have ever experienced in OBX. This house was absolutely breathtaking. We had lots of kids with us of different ages and there was not a dull moment for them at all. The walk to the beach is so convenient and as my 4yr old put it "this is mystical." The house itself is extremely well maintained, cleaned and so homely. We had a very minor issue one night where a breaker popped but we were able to get ahold of someone right away that helped us find the problem and fixed it. Took less than 15 minutes. Very very efficient!! We are SOLD on the group at Elan. My family and I have tried many many different houses and companies over the years - none come close to this house or the very pleasant people at Elan vacations. Thank you for allowing us to stay at 85 Ocean Blvd!! We wish it was 2016 already!!
Thank you from our family,

This was our first time to Southern Shores renting a house with my husband, kids, and extended families. This house has everything you could ever need for the week from chairs for the beach, well equipped kitchen, playpen/baby gate for the little ones. The beach is a private beach and loved how not crowded it was. The only problem we had while we were down there was the A/C on the first and second floor wasn't working and the motor to the pump to the pool went out--but once I got ahold of someone to tell them about it. They were both fixed that day! We couldn't have had a better vacation.

The house was in a fantastic location- across the street from the beach- literally took 2 minutes to walk to the beach.
Southern Shores is nice- houses are large and beautiful, traffic is manageable. The houses aren't "crammed together", like in Kill Devil Hills or Kitty Hawk.
The rooms were large and the house was stocked with everything you need- kitchen had everything for cooking. Comfortable, and the decor was tasteful. The upstairs living area was beautiful.
The pool was a nice touch- good to go swimming after a long day and not worry about the salt and sand from the beach.
Overall, a great vacation, and comfortable for myself and the 10 others traveling with me. I recommend!
