3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)
Newly renovated 1400 sq foot home with a private sandy beach with shallow water so it's great for small children. Master bedroom has a private bath and a queen size bed, 2nd bedroom has a queen bed and the 3rd has 2 twin beds. All rooms have TV's along with the one in the large living area which has a 180 degree view of the core sound .you also have a view of cape lookout light house. The 32x12 foot front porch is covered and has great lighting for nighttime use. The kitchen has granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, a gas cooktop and a pot filler. There is a charcoal grill so bring your steaks, seafood and enjoy. An upright washer and dryer are located in the second bath along with a bathing suit drying rack inspired by Pinterest and built by the homeowner who also is a builder.
Shackle ford banks is right across the sound and we see wild horses through the telescope along with dolphins, pelicans and of course seagulls among an slew of other types of birds. My favorite thing is watching the Pelicans diving for breakfast, lunch and dinner .
At the end of the island there's the core sound museum and heritage center and also the ferry can take you to shackelford and back. But if you're ambitious the drive to Cedar Island is about 45 min and there they have a ferry that can take you to Ocracoke island. It's a fun day trip .
Come have fun, fish, kayak, swim, eat and repeat .
The dock in the photos is not on our property, but there are moorings in the water to tie your boat out on, as well as a marina 1/4 mile away, and a boat launch at the bridge.

Was a great place to stay with beautiful view!!
Thank you so much for your review, we're so glad you were able to enjoy your stay in spite of the weather! Please come back anytime!
The zen we needed
Our goal this weekend was to find a place where we could be surrounded by beauty and tranquility. This house and location was perfect. The sunset was breathtaking. And just being able to see the water from any angle inside the house, was a plus! We will definitely be coming back with our kids. The perfect getaway. :)
My husband and parents really enjoyed staying at this house! From the moment we got there the deck overlooking the sound was our favorite part. The house is very comfortable, and remodeled very nicely. It's clear the owner has put in thought and effort into it. From watching a storm come across the water, to the boats going out to the cape, the views from the porch are not to be missed! We look forward to our next trip to Harkers Island and this house again!
We're so happy you all enjoyed your stay last summer, and hope you'll come back and see it again soon! Thanks for your great review - those views are not to be missed!!
Harkers Island rental
The house was nicely done, the wide paneled wood floors were beautiful. The deck facing the sound has an exceptional view. The actual access to the sound is somewhat limited (area-wise), but you can go down and splash around if you like. Overall it was an excellent rental for us.
