Mr. McCallim's cottage on the Outer Banks (Southern Shores) is the perfect place to unwind, relax, and reconnect with family. It is centrally located between Kitty Hawk and Duck. The cottage is clean and completely equipped and stocked with all necessary items. It is a half a block to a beautiful beach. The cottage provides a wonderful setting for a special vacation!

Affordable and great location.

Pleasant little cottage very close to beach. We very much appreciated the shady lot upon returning from the beach.

Charming and quaint. Great distance from the beach.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at the Cottage by the ocean. When we arrived the cottage was clean and in otherwise good condition. Chips provides some beach chairs so we were able to sit at the beach in comfort. Chips responded to an issue right away and was as nice as could be. We all slept comfortably and soundly. It is like a little oasis on the island. Would recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to stay. Thanks Chips!

Great Family Escape

  • 3 of 5

The property was fully stocked with any kitchen gadgets you would expect. The grill had gas to cook on. Was thankful for the beach chairs that were available. The only complaint we have is that the property on VRBO shows linens were included, but when we arrived we quickly discovered linens were not provided. Luckily there is a Walmart nearby.

Fantastic Find

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quick getaway over Spring Break for our family of 3 and I was really impressed by all the great reviews this property received and decided to give it a chance. After staying here, I can honestly say those great reviews are well deserved! The house is nicely tucked back from the street (you can barely see it from Google Street View) and it's well shrouded by trees. It is next door to the fire/EMS station, but we had no issues with noise or traffic from it. There is some construction currently going on across the street but, again, no issues with the crew, noise, or parking. The house itself is a nice little gem - clean and well-maintained with lots of thoughtful amenities. The owner was great to work with. He made everything so easy. Called us on the first night with some general info and recommendations for the area. We felt very much at home and really enjoyed our time at the cottage. Already looking at our calendar to see when we can go back! (Note: There is no washer/dryer or dishwasher which might be an issue for some, but it didn't detract from our visit in any way.)

It truly is a cottage, nestled in the trees.

  • 5 of 5

Old beach living preferred and this did not disappoint. Live Oaks surround this enjoyable house giving it a treehouse feel. Everything is furnished, clean, and comfortable.

I plan to go back...and soon!
