A Southern Hostess Adding Some Southern Flare

Short term property rentals in Virginia and North Carolina

Simple Southern Getaways is a collection of vacation homes lovingly curated by Betty and Hardy. Discover the charm and history of Norfolk Virginia and the beauty and magic of Beech Mountain. If it's the beach you crave or the mountains that are calling then Simple Southern Getaways has a home for you.

After retiring from 20 years of dental hygiene, I struggled to find my purpose. 
I had always cared for people and wanted to continue to do so with limitations from my back condition. What started off as wanting to buy a beach cottage, quickly became my love and passion. Airbnb has truly been life changing for our family! I look forward to each and everyone of my guests and I love helping new hosts get started! Let me teach you how to fall in love with hosting and give you the confidence that you need to become a Super Host!

We really fell in love with the Bay and can't wait to return. Thank you Betty for sharing your lovely beach home with us, we made memories to last a lifetime!


I highly recommend staying at Beech Bliss it was just what our family needed, rest, family time and relaxing on our vacation.


We absolutely loved Bay Lake Escape! Betty is very accommodating and responds within minutes! She was very helpful and allowed us to book last minute. She is definitely a super host!
