  • Wonderful Oriental Home

    "What a beautiful, comfortable home, and the owners are as warm and inviting as their home! Beautifully decorated, has everything you would possibly need for a great stay, in a great town! We had a wonderful stay, visiting friends and seeing the Town of Oriental. The house is convenient to everything in town. The fenced in back yard was a treat for our dog. Your hospitality shines through in all ways!"

  • Best Kept Secret

    "My family just finished our week long vacation at this rental property and had a terrific time. The location is perfect. We were literally steps from the ocean and the pool. The home was very clean and had lots of "extras" at our disposal. This property is an end unit thus has a wrap around deck with open views of the beach and the pool. This community of Pine Knoll Townes is ideally located to the aquarium and local grocery and restaurants. We loved Michealangelos Pizzeria located just 5 miles down the road! This location is very family oriented with lots to do and see, yet seems to be much more quiet than other parts of the island community. The owners were very helpful and easy to work with. This is definitely a location we would rent again and recommend to others. We look forward to visiting again!"

  • Just Right

    "My wife and I made Harkers Island our summer getaway destination for the second year in a row, and we couldn't have picked a better cottage. It's rustic and authentic, but well kept and comfortable. Our favorite thing about Harkers Island is that you can kayak to Shackleford Banks and/or Cape Lookout to see wild horses and sit on the totally undeveloped beaches. The island lacks some dining and shopping options, but you can easily drive to Beaufort or Moorehead City for most anything you'd want. Be sure to check out Pita Plate and Old Siam in Moorehead City if you're vegan. The owners were friendly, responsive, and easy to work with. We look forward to returning."

  • Fantastic rental for large family or two families traveling together

    "We rented this home for a long family wedding weekend and had a wonderful time. The rental was very clean and beautifully decorated. So much space for spending time together (and apart). The kitchen was very large and could accommodate everyone for meals. Located on a quiet street just steps from the beach. Close to Fort Macon. We saw dolphins! and collected many sand dollars."

Oriental Travel Tips

Oriental Beach House Rentals on the North Carolina Coast

When planning a relaxing and fun family vacation to Oriental Beach on the North Carolina coast, there are plenty of spacious and comfortable Oriental vacation homes available. Staying in a vacation home gives the visitors a home away from home type feel, since the homes come furnished and fully ready for guests with bedding, kitchen appliances, and much more. Unlike a typical hotel room, the Oriental beach house rentals are ready for visitors to prepare home cooked meals, relax with a good movie, or spend time enjoying some of the many amenities available with each home. Most of the rentals sleep at least four people, and some can sleep up to 12 or more, so these rentals are ideal for larger families or big get-togethers. It is a great and cost-effective way to spend time with a large group without having to book multiple hotel rooms.
