Property description

Bring your boat and enjoy some excellent fishing while entertaining family and friends this late summer and fall. There is plenty of room to spread out and we have everything you need for a large group. We do have summer openings from August 2015 but they will go soon.

This home is ideal for military family groups (being close to Cherry Point Air Force base) and for corporate accommodation. Long term rentals are available off season.

You will love the serene setting surrounded by water and the convenience of docking your boat at the back yard dock, with fish cleaning table, power outlet and running water for your convenience.

The kids will enjoy fishing or dropping the crab pot off the dock, playing on the tree swing or using the basket ball hoop and lawn games.

Watch the boats come and go from the bright sun room or while lounging in one of two shady hammocks near the water. Or you can enjoy the view while riding the cottage bikes to the nearby store. Go for long walks on the beach or travel by boat to visit Cape Lookout, spot the ponies at Shackleford Banks, or enjoy the aquarium, museums, waterfront shopping and dining in Beaufort, Morehead City, Swansboro or Atlantic Beach.

Surrey Cottage is a popular return destination but we do still have availability in October through December. The weather is usually still quite mild on the beautiful Crystal Coast at that time with fewer crowds and cooler days. Fishermen - October and November are popular fishing months so book now to bring your boat and dock in the back yard.

Surrey Cottage is an exceptional waterfront home ideally situated off the Bogue Sound/ICW on the North Carolina Crystal Coast close to Morehead City, Beaufort, Atlantic Beach and Havelock/Cherry Point. Military families - this is a great holiday getaway for your family reunion. The house is ideal for large family reunions and well positioned to enjoy the local attractions and shops, cinema and outdoor activities. Longer stays are also available for executive/military accommodation off season.

Watch the boats come and go as you sip cocktails in the sun room, while relaxing in the hammocks near the dock or dining under a shady tree. There are two Weber grills for front or back outdoor dining - both charcoal and gas. The enclosed outdoor shower is convenient for a quick cool down or to rinse off after a day on the boat or at the beach. A separate laundry/utility room with new large washer and dryer and iron/ironing board keeps sandy towels out of the way.

This is not your average rental! You will find unexpected luxury and plenty of space at an affordable price. Surrey Cottage has been updated with tasteful 'international coastal' furnishings and fixtures including hand woven Indonesian chairs, plush leather couches, oriental rugs and quality bedding. All TV's have been upgraded to flat screen and we have just added a 65 inch flat screen TV with HDMI and computer inputs in the family room/den!

All bedrooms have queen beds and are comfortably furnished with all necessities, including radio alarm clocks/IPod docking station and hair dryers. The luxurious master bath includes jetted tub and shower. A leather sleeper sofa in the living room sleeps two (queen size) and the sectional leather sofa in the family room converts to a second queen sleeper. There are a total of four TV/DVD/VCR combos and a pull-out computer center provides internet access with color printer and all necessary supplies. Wi-Fi is also included so you can work outdoors if necessary and there is a HiFi/CD player in the living room. A portable radio/CD player is available for outdoor use.

This elegant 'home away from home' is unique in that the lawn leads to a private dock on a sheltered canal. Fish off the dock, or there is plenty of room on the front lawn to play volley ball, croquet or just lounge in the hammock. A basket ball hoop and swing are also included. Kayaks are available by arrangement to explore the waterways, and the quiet water view roads are ideal for walks or cycling on the cottage bikes. Nearby Beaufort also has miles of bike trails and boat rentals and boat tours are also available An extensive book, DVD, CD and board game collection is available to our guests in addition to volley ball and croquet.

The cottage is designed with two separate self contained 'suites', making it suitable for two families or for use as one home. All rooms have water views; one suite includes a large bedroom, bathroom, seperate outdoor access (via small porch/lania) and family room with breakfast bar/'kitchenette'. The second, larger suite includes kitchen, living/dining area, two bedrooms, sunroom and bathroom with shower and jetted tub, and can be seperated by the interleading door, if preferred.

This is a spacious retreat suitable for entertaining, with room for everyone to spread out and many options indoors and out. It is ideally situated to enjoy the best of the Crystal Coast away from the crowds and long term rentals are available out of season.

Surrey Cottage is in a great destination for fishing, the beach and many water sports - in addition to antiquing, waterfront shopping and visiting the many attractions near popular Morehead City, Atlantic Beach, historic Beaufort and Emerald Isle. There are also several golf courses in Morehead City and surrounding areas for the golfers in your group. We are fortunate to have many returning guests who enjoy the tranquility and comfort of this idyllic spot.


The cottage kayaks are available by arrangement to tour the waterways and enjoy the sound views and bird life - or to spot dolphin if you are lucky! This is also an excellent location for wind surfing and sailing and is an ideal family getaway with bikes, tree swing and basket ball hoop.

Being within a short drive of the Cherry Point base in Havelock, NC and close to the Camp Lejeune base in Jacksonville, this upmarket waterfront home is a great choice to spend precious time at the coast with your military family and friends. It is well suited for holidays, family reunions and wedding parties and with almost 2,000 square ft (cooled/heated) it is perfect for short term executive housing; offering the comfort of home while on contract or relocating.

You will have immediate access to tour the waterways in your boat or the cottage kayaks and you may take advantage of the communial boat slip/marina to conveniently launch your boat. Fishermen - make reservations now for the upcoming season! This is an excellent location for access to deep water fishing and the gulf stream or to bottom fish the Bogue Sound and Crystal Coast waters.

This is a popular destination for family reunions - check out the Reviews to see how other families have enjoyed their stay!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: After visiting the Crystal Coast for several years we purchased this property in 1997 to be close to our favorite locations; Beaufort, Morehead City and Atlantic Beach, and for immediate access to Bogue Sound for the great fishing and water sports. We love to travel and this boating neighborhood reminds us of some water communities in Europe. We enjoy family reunions here and some family guests travel from as far as the UK and Netherlands to take advantage of the peaceful waterfront setting. We joined VRBO for the first time in the summer of 09 and have enjoyed sharing our vacation home with other guests. We love to hear about their varied activities, and have even learned about some great attractions that we had overlooked, such as parasailing and horseback riding on the beach. We enjoy boat trips to Cape Lookout, Shackleford Island and other nearby sandbank islands for picnics on the boat, followed by swimming, shelling and sun bathing. We also travel by boat to the nearby waterfront shops and restaurants, and love the many street fairs and the live music on the waterfront. Cycling along the waterview roads to the local store for the morning paper is a great way to start the day and we like to kayak from our boat dock to cruise up and down Bogue Sound, enjoying the sunsets, bird life and waving to the boats passing. We often see dolfin while in the kayaks or traveling in the boat. The cottage is suitable for young children, teenagers and adults. We love sharing this home with our guests and hope they will enjoy all the extra conveniences we have included to make this their own vacation home away from home.

Why the Owner Chose Morehead City:
We believe this is one of the best locations on the North Carolina coast, ideal for boating, sailing and fishing, close to the beautiful beaches and close to 'rainy day' activities such as movies and waterfront shopping. Jet skiing, kite surfing and wind surfing are also popular water sports. Parasailing and horseback riding on the beach are also available. The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful while still being close to all the shops and points of interest.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Enjoy the benefits of have the boat docked in the back yard for fishing trips, cocktails on the boat, spontaneous picnics or to travel to the many waterside restaurants nearby. We also enjoy meals on the lawn by the water under the shade of a large tree, or on the sheltered brick patio. We enjoy the immediate access to Bogue Sound from the boat dock to kayak on the the waterways and enjoy the views.
