We loved our stay at Brat's Way! Not only was it a stones throw from the ocean and Duck, the house was easy to enjoy! Clean, colorful, and filled with amenities that kept us feeling like home away from home!

We travel to Duck every year. This year, we had fewer guests and found this basic beach house very close to the Ocean. We especially enjoyed the two cruiser bikes that came with the rental - we used them daily. The Southern Shores rental and maintenance team provided excellent service and we will gladly use this rental agency again!
Fabulous location & price; older home which needs TLC.

This is our third time in Brat's Way. We enjoy the size and location. With 5 bedrooms, we can accomodate all our family while being close to the beach.
Upon arrival, we felt it was not cleaned per normal standard. Housekeeping came right out and completed the job. The hot tub was not heating above 95 degrees and the service man was there quickly to rectify that situation. Service was great!
We love the nearness to the beach, the size, the outdoor shower; however, it could use a good cleaning. Heavy dust has accumulated on wall decorations. Cabinet doors are very dirty. Walls in the 1/2 bath collect dust from heat or airconditioning and it is thick. Some of the cookware is OK; others needs some upgrade.
When it is all said and done, we would rent Brat's Way again unless our family grows.

The home was very clean and had all the amenities listed online. The location was wonderful, so close to the beach. However, we had to hold our noses when we went outside near the garbage cans. The cans were emptied on Monday but still smelt very strongly all week. I thought that maybe an animal had died on the property, in the bushes, behind the cans but the smell never went away.

My friends and I stayed at Brat's Way for Memorial Day weekend. The house had a wonderful hot tub and two beach cruisers that everyone loved. My favorite thing about the house was the view from the top level where the common room was located. You could feel a wonderful cross breeze and see the ocean- without the huge price tag! The only issue I had with the house was the access. The street we lived off had "no beach access" so we crossed a mulched area to the parallel street to get to the beach. I am not sure we were supposed to use that access point, but we did. It really wasn't a big deal, but maybe in the summertime during high season it isn't allowed? I'm not sure. All in all it was a wonderful house for the money and I would definitely come again in the off season.

Brat's Way is an excellent place to stay at while visiting the Duck area. It is a very short walk to the beach, has plenty of rooms and has a very nice hot tub and outdoor shower. Everything in the house was in good condition and the AC worked great. I would reiterate that one of the best features of this property is the proximity to the beach...and of course the excellent outdoor shower. I would hightly recommend this property, just do me one favor and do not rent it when I am planning my vacation, thanks.

A very nice place with comfortable, clean rooms and very close to the beach. The hot tub was a big plus. The only minor issues were the lack of a gas grill (hadn't cooked with charcoal in a long time), a glass coffee table which was very dangerous, and we were surprised to find that there were no cooking spices at all. But even with those minor problems, we had a great stay and would definitely rent this house again.
