85 Ocean Blvd. Vacation Home

I see there is one excellent review - wondered if anyone else can offer experiences. We are planning a family reunion and are hoping to make a choice in either Duck or in Southern Shores. Would you choose one area over another? We are all adults. Ideas for relaxation or kayaking simple activities?

I have never been in that house but the location is pretty great. The downside is you are on a pretty busy 2 lane road which backs up horribly on Saturday and the closest beach access is across the street - literally. The good news is that on Saturday, or any other day, you can go north 4 lots to a traffic light to cross and use that access there if you don't want to cross the street to the access across from the house. Any day but Sat and Sun should be easy to cross there. You are 4 miles from Duck (don't go on Saturdays) and 1 mile from Kitty Hawk, 6 miles from KDH and 11 miles from Nags Head.

It's actually EASIER to cross on the weekends, because they ARE backed up already!! We owned a portion lf 73 Ocean Boulevard for years and found that to be true! Beaches are not particularly wide there, but also not crowded... We also enjoyed the closeness to the activity of the dunes, Kitty Hawk, Nagshead and even Manteo from that location..... We used to rent for 10 years up in Corolla.... now we prefer Southern Shores area....
