About Keturah Epps

The Epps are high school sweethearts who have been married for over 20 years with two teenagers. Their love of the beach fueled their goal-oriented personalities, hence, FINALLY....Sandy Bottoms beach cottage.

Keturah Epps purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Keturah Epps chose Kill Devil Hills

A beach cottage had been a dream of The Epps for years and finally when this low level bungalow became available, it seemed perfect especially with bad knees in the family! :) There were so many ironic things that pointed them towards Sandy Bottoms. It's quaintness and proximity to the beach made it clear that there would be lots of fun times at the beach to experience!

What makes this cottage unique

Location,location,location !!! Close walk to the beach,grocery store , Jolly Roger Restaurant and The Sea Ranch Resort . Also, the big back porch could accommodate rainy days in a hammock..

Great get away!

  • 5 of 5

We loved your cottage! It was great for us & our fur babies! The king bed was very comfortable! We loved the screened in porch. We ate breakfast there every day. My husband loved the outside shower! The house was very clean & had everything you would ever need! This is the first place we have stayed at OBX that we didn't have to worry about sand spurs with our dogs! Thanks for sharing your little piece of heaven with us! Hope to stay there again! Thanks again!

Very nice, comfortable beach home

  • 5 of 5

We had a very short visit, thanks to Hurricane Maria, but we enjoyed the short time we had at Sandy Bottoms. Very well appointed with all the amenities you could want, and such a nice, well-cared for cottage. I especially loved the hammock on the covered porch. And so close to the beach, just a short walk across the street and you're there. Keturah's communication goes above and beyond, making sure that all your needs are met, and when I had a question, she was quick to respond. I am looking forward to a longer visit to OBX next time, and I am planning to return to Sandy Bottoms.

Cozy home - easy to settle into - so charming! Lovely porch and deck to relax and nice yard for the pup to hang about. Great proximity to the beach as well as a couple restaurants and the grocery store. Booking with Keturah was as easy as can be. Thank you for sharing your home with us! Looking forward to visiting again!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Really close to beach, and a short walk to Food Lion. 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms... but a great outdoor shower, off of screened in porch. Did have some issues with the oven, but we managed. Well stocked with staples, WIFI was decent, had a great time.

Perfect beach bungalow!!

  • 5 of 5

Sandy Bottoms, as close to the beach as you can be without being on the beach. Perfect size and location for our family of 4, plenty of room and privacy for everyone. We spent the majority of our time at the beach and on the amazing screened in back porch. The best outdoor shower I have ever used, in fact I never even used the indoor shower. Can't wait to come back again, thank you to the Epps's family for opening up their home to us. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Joel, you all are certainly welcomed back anytime! Thank you for taking good care of things and so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We never use the inside shower either when we are there. Something about that sea air in an outside shower! Thanks a bunch! The Epps
