The Outer Banks North Carolina is one of my favorite places to visit.
The serenity of this incredible location has drawn me to the OBX shoreline several times a year. With some of our family living in the area, that does play a big part in the attraction. But the beach… This is definitely my happy place. 🙂
After the craziness of 2020, I knew the Outer Banks would be the perfect place for our annual golf trip. We were looking for a house big enough to fit us all. On top of that, with the bonus of off-season prices, we were able to splurge and grab a house right on the beach. Our goal was to cook most of our own meals, enjoy each other’s company, and try to beat each other at a few rounds of golf.
With all that in mind, we found the perfect place.
Welcome to 5th Avenue, Southern Shores, NC.
I had never stayed this close to the water before. And who doesn’t love having a private entrance to the beach? The feeling of having our own private oasis was incredible.
We were looking for a place that would fit us all and this home fit every need (and want) we had.
With five full bedrooms (3 oceanfront master suites) PLUS a bonus suite with an incredible view of the sunset, 5th Avenue was perfect for our group. Each room was over-the-top comfortable.
The kitchen and dining room were comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. This made our decision to eat most of our meals at home very enticing.
The inside of this house is super posh. I was in awe each time we entered a room.
But for me, the outside is the best part.
We had our own swimming pool and hot tub, plus the added bonus of an outdoor shower and bathroom.
With a golf group, who wouldn’t love their own private putting green? This got quite a bit of use while we were there…
I have to admit, my absolute favorite part of the house is the two decks that overlooked the ocean.
Several of us sat out here every morning drinking Mimosas (and coffee) while watching the sunrise. Then we relaxed in the afternoon with a glass of wine, soaking up the soothing atmosphere.
I can’t tell you how incredible this beach house truly is. We had wonderful spaces for group get-togethers.
And with private office space in most of the rooms, several of us were able to actually telework while we were here.
Another bonus was the fun welcome gifts we received.
As the week came to an end and we packed our things, we started thinking about where we could head next year. There are so many places yet to see in this world. But I don’t think any place will beat our Outer Banks experience.
I’ll be honest, this week only increased my desire to spend time by the ocean. I love coming to the Outer Banks, but it wasn’t until this week that I realized how much peace I gain when I’m here. After the ups and downs of 2020, I was able to finally let some of the stress and worry go.
Thank you 5th Avenue Coastal Retreat for bringing back some of that peace.
