Begin each day of your vacation with a stunning Outer Banks sunrise at “First Light!” This gorgeous home in Southern Shores is located right on the oceanfront. Listening to the sound of the rolling waves and watching for dolphins will be on your vacation agenda.

Upon arriving at the home, there is an elevator that goes from the ground level to the second floor to assist with unpacking luggage and unloading groceries. The great room on the top level of the home is the main living area, and offers fantastic ocean views throughout. Relax in the living area and enjoy spending time with loved ones. A gas fireplace is available for use during cooler months of the year. The nearby kitchen is fully stocked with all equipment needed to prepare meals for the duration of your stay. Two dishwashers make cleanup a breeze. You have a choice of sitting together at the dining table or the barstools at the kitchen counter. Step out onto the oceanfront deck to enjoy morning coffee or an afternoon beverage with a salty ocean breeze. There are three master bedrooms on the top level, each with a private bathroom. There is also a half bathroom on the upper floor of the home.

The lower level was designed with entertainment in mind. There is a rec room with a pool table, for endless hours of fun. A wet bar with dishwasher is also available in the rec room to keep cold drinks and snacks handy. Screen the latest movies in your own personal theatre room. There are four master bedrooms on the second floor, each with a private bathroom. A half bathroom and laundry room can also be found on this level.

Step outside for some fun in the sun. Make a big splash in the private pool. Enjoy a restorative soak in the hot tub. Grab your beach chairs and walk from the home to the beach via the connecting beach walkway. An OBX vacation at “First Light” is sure to be the highlight of your family’s year!

"We stayed in First Light last week. The house was beautiful. We were a multi generational group of 10 people and the house suited everyone. Plenty of gathering space yet nooks and crannies to escape to if anyone wanted some down time. We had a small maintenance issue that Twiddy was right on top of! A great rental experience!"

"Pool and proximity to the beach."

Catherine   ·  Stayed May 2023

"House was great for a big family especially when weather forced us inside most of the week . All great but would be nice to have a place where people can leave beach toys etc for others to use instead of anything left being discarded .. most other houses have a cupboard with boogie boards and sand toys etc so always something for folks who travel from a long way and no room to bring.."

Joan Diane   ·  Stayed April 2023

"Spacious... Well appointed...A chef's kitchen...Beautiful views"

Tieanna   ·  Stayed October 2022

"It's obvious this is a newer home and it seems that the renters are taking good care of the house when in use. Great view of the ocean and the cleaning company does a FANTASTIC job! you can rent a brand new home or an older one...but a CLEAN home is key. A very beautiful property!"

Kathryn   ·  Stayed September 2022

"First Light was an amazing home. Plenty of room for our family of 10 adults and 4 young children. Loved that so many rooms offered king beds which is sometimes hard to find. Great family room, wonderful pool, huge fully stocked kitchen…and right on the beach. Just beautiful!"

Theresa   ·  Stayed August 2022

"“First Light” was amazing! We’ve stayed in many homes on the Outer Banks and “First Light” was our favorite. The quieter beach of Southern Shores was great. The home was gorgeous and so fun! We will be back!"

Frank   ·  Stayed June 2022

"The home was everything it appeared to be. It was about 1 year old and in great condition. Sometimes the pictures do not represent the true condition of the home but this one did! The accommodations were perfect. Would recommend it."

Mallory   ·  Stayed June 2022
