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..

Perfect winter getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for 3 days right after Christmas and we were so happy that we picked Sandy Bottoms for our stay. It was REALLY cold outside so we spent most of our time hanging out in the cozy cottage playing games and just spending time with one another. The owners had put out Christmas decorations, which we all thought was a great personal touch and made it feel so homey and nice. I really hope that we will be able to come back again and enjoy this cottage when it is warmer - that back porch and the hammock was calling my name the whole time we were there! Comfy beds, great location, new appliances in the kitchen, nicely decorated throughout, super fast response times from the owners ... what more could you ask for? This place gets an A+ from my entire family.

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!
