IMPORTANT: VRBO has started this absurd requirement that we owners must use their cludgey/useless system or we get degraded for not answering you. We have always answered within hours...via our own email...Outlook. Why? Because we can talk to you directly and answer your questions rather than the VRBO format. Email us or inquire here and we will answer within 12 hours.
VERY Pet Friendly.. had 2 Iguanas stay with us!!! We don't care how big your pooches are. Beautifully decorated suite with all the amenities. Peaceful quiet and privacy. Huge pool! Hot tub!!! Outstanding view of the bay from the deck. See our own website for more info and pictures (link is provided later in this listing).
No one else has a pool or spa and sandy beach access! We also have free WiFi!
Can't get closer to the water than this! Bring your boat and tie it feet from your Suite.
Swim in front of the property in beautiful Core Sound! Very safe for the youngsters...they love exploring the marine life. Your dogs will love the swim too!. Swim in our Huge pool...er, we'd rather the dogs did not :-). (The pool will close for the season sometime in September)
Spa (Hot Tub!)
Free WiFi to DSL if you must stay in touch. Two HD TV's with Netflix streaming. BluRay player. Wii console.
We will continue last year's experiment of only requiring a 3 night minimum since folks are having trouble or afraid to take off from work for a week. This also alleviates the mandatory changeover day. We were almost fully occupied in 2012-13-14, even in the bad economy, so that tells us that you like this plan.
We're very pleased that our first 8 years were so well booked. We've met so many nice people and their dogs loved it here too. Many brought their pets who had a ball playing with our pooches and relaxing in the suite after a 'hard' day in the water and walks on the beach. Did we mention that we LOVE dogs? Did we mention that you can bring your dogs? Please do not board your best friend...bring him/her here for fun too.
Guests that were here brought their small sail boat (like a Sun Fish) and Wind Surfer boards...they have had a ball. The lady has 'complained' that she has found so much to do that she hasn't rested enough. They dined on crabs, clams, and fish that THEY caught right in the back yard. Several guests brought their boats and had a great time out on the water.
Our family and dog friendly SUITE offers beautiful furniture and accessories. Look at the pictures on our web site. It is a private, two-bedroom suite with everything to make your holiday comfortable. You'll wake up in a 4-poster bed and look directly at Cedar Island Bay and watch the pelicans, gulls and other fowl go about their morning feeding. The suite can accommodate 4 adults or 2 adults and several children, depending on ages.
Have your coffee outside on the huge private deck to continue this morning show and you'll probably find it tough to get moving. You are steps away from the water. During the day, swim or clam in the bay. You might kayak, bike, horseback ride or just read the rest of the day. At night enjoy a campfire and look at stars and planets in an unpolluted sky. Check our website and picture site (listed below) for more information.
We have broadband (DSL) internet access and we offer free WiFi!
You do not need to bring much because we provide everything but food (and we even include some staples and spices!)
Pelicans Rest is located on Cedar Island, a 'Down East' fishing village in North Carolina known as the Gateway to the Outer Banks. It is a nature lover's paradise overlooking Cedar Island Bay, Core Sound, and Pamlico Sound. The Atlantic Ocean and its beaches are visible on the horizon and accessible by ferry.
Did we mention that we are VERY pet friendly! No need to board Fido.
For a complete description and pictures, please visit our website.
CAUTION: many teenagers will hate this place. We are a mellow out and enjoy nature and family place. Type A 'gotta do something' folks will not like us. We warned you. What's the fishing situation? Google is your friend. It changes from day to day.
Privacy: the unit is attached to our house. We are geezers and stay to ourselves in the far opposite end. We use the pool rarely and then only when guests are gone. We know you are here as a family, not to see us. We are available if you need us...some times...but otherwise, you are own your own. We RV a lot so we may not be here anyway.
We're not a Spring Break place. This is a sleepy village with no party activities....moreless
Very friendly. Long way from the road, very private in a very safe village (doors are seldom locked and cars have the keys in them). The Bay is shallow for a long distance with no tidal currents. Children of all ages love searching for clams, crabbing and fishing right out front (and within eyesight of the parents).
Wii provided. Bring your games. Or Bring your X-Box/PS3...moreless
Pool, Cedar Island Bay swimming, fishing & boating in your back yard, Central air Conditioning, HD DirecTV, DVD, Free Wifi with DSL, Full Kitchen with Microwave, Cooking Utensils and spices provided, Linens and towel's provided, huge private deck, Lawn furniture, and much more...moreless

o We have a drip coffee maker with filters and a startup of coffee.

We don’t keave the Keurig in there for space reasons and everyone has their own favorite K-Cups....moreless

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We retired from the DC area where Daniele owned and operated a successful, high Zagat rated, Belgian restaurant and Steve worked in the Pentagon (Retired Army). So glad to get away from the DC traffic! Not a single radio or TV station in this area has traffic reports!!!
Daniele passed away in early 2013. Happiness flew into my life and Robin and I are married and carrying on the tradition.
We now RV a lot around the US and and Mexico.
Why the Owner Chose Cedar Island: The Island's people and the serene nature. It is so quiet here. We love looking at the water.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Quiet. Calm. Privacy Beautiful nature. Pooches can run free safely and frolic in the bay.
