Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Our wonderful beach 'home away from home' has been the place of wonderful memories for our family for the past 16 years. Being an artist and a person that loves happy colorful things, I have decorated our condo with lots of original art and artistic collectibles. Everyone that walks in the door loves how happy it makes them feel to spend time here. Our guests always call our view of the beach the 'million dollar view.' As you stand in the den, kitchen, or master bedroom, you have a full view of the ocean, sand, and the whole beach strand. You can even watch dolphins jumping out of the water and swimming by in the mornings on their way down the beach. The pelicans make daily trips up and down the beach catching their meals also. For a relaxing cup of coffee, sit on the screened porch and hear the waves breaking as you read the morning paper. You can eat at the table for 4 on the porch for lunch when you come in from the beach or pool. Its great to grab a book and snuggle up in the lounge chair and read without another soul around.

As you walk down the boardwalk to the beach, there is a wonderful gazebo with seats that you can sit under during the hot sun or go out to at night and listen to the waves while enjoying a glass of wine. Even a stroll on the beach at night is wonderful under the stars!!!!

If you have children, as we have had all of these years, you will see that it is a very kid friendly area. The staff is always around on golf carts to help you in any way, and the children love choosing which pool they want when there are 4 of them!!!!

As to the older citizens that still love the beach, the shopping carts for unloading at the base of the elevators are a wonderful amenity!!!! Our condo is also situated so that if anyone is unable to go to the beach, the beach actually will come to them. They can stay in the condo all day but still enjoy the view and sounds.

If you are interested in a wonderful day trip to Cape Lookout, we can arrange reservations for you through Lookout Cruises on their huge catamarand. It is a fun experience for all ages with lunch served and a covered area for those that do not want to sit in the sun.

The NC Aquarium is one of the best treats on the beach for adults and children. They offer leisure browsing of all of the tanks and displays along with nature hiking and sea turtle excursions during peak times of the year.

There are also many great restaurants in the area and there is a notebook in the condo with menus and directions to many of our favorite ones.

Anything that we can do to make this your favorite vacation place, we are ready to help!!!

About CATHRYN BERRY

Our family of 4 (now its bigger) grew up at Atlantic Beach, spending many summers and weekends throughout the years. As our children got older, we purchased our own condo and my parents sold theirs. We have continued to spend almost all summer at the beach, enjoying all that beach life afforded us. As our children got older, married, and had our grandchildren, we realized that we were no longer able to enjoy the condo all of time. We have decided to share our wonderful home and memories with new friends!!!

CATHRYN BERRY purchased this condo in 1994

Why CATHRYN BERRY chose Central Coast

My parents owned a condo for many years at Atlantic Beach and we were able to stay with them every summer and raise our children in a fun, safe environment. Our 'beach friends' became very dear to us and this became a natural way of life for us each summer. In the spring and fall, and even during the winter, we have enjoyed great weekends with warm water temps until November and beach walks year round due to the mild weather. We have even been known to have bathing suits on in January on the beach!!! The people are so friendly, the restaurants are wonderful with fresh seafood, it is such a kid friendly beach, and it is never crowded. People from other states have been overheard commenting on how they cannot believe how there is not much traffic and not a lot of people on the beautiful beaches!!!

What makes this condo unique

The best view of the beach and ocean of any condo. Screened in porch with table and chairs for dining and lounge chair for relaxing. Only a few steps from the ocean. Elevators and steps and 4 pools of your choice.

Great place to stay!

Our condo was very nice! It was in building 5, Ocean front and decorated nicely. The kitchen was stocked with necessary cookware, dishes and glasses. Close to shopping and restaurants. All of the comforts of home await you in this Ocean front condo.

Excellent Communication- very impressed!!

  • 5 of 5

I would just like to commend this owner on her excellent communication skills!! Very responsive. Will definitely be renting this place next year :-) Rest-assured you can book this property with confidence (I've noticed on so many others that the owner can often times be difficult to work with or to reach at all).

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This was our first trip to the Outer Banks. The Condo was in a great. Direct access to the beach and a short drive to many fun activities. We experienced a few high wind days during our stay where we couldn't swim in the ocean and the pool access was a good alternative. We would definitely stay here again or recommend to friends.

Can't beat the view!

  • 4 of 5

Although we only spent a weekend at the condo for a nearby family event it was both the perfect location and had plenty of room for the six of us. The views and proximity to the beach made it such a great place to relax. The sounds of the waves and the brightly colored décor helped bring cheer even on the cloudy days. The owners were extremely helpful when we asked to extend checkout time and when we left a cell phone behind by accident!

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee $100
Damage Deposit $250

CSA Travel Protection is recommended and is less than $150 and gives you complete refund and a lot of accidental insurance. I had a renter have to cancel due to health issue and it gave a full refund. It is well worth it for all of the accident benefits!
Security deposit is returned a few days after your stay if nothing is damaged. If you need to cancel your reservation due to unforeseen circumstances(at discretion of owner), the damage deposit will be held unless another renter books your spot. At that time, the deposit will be returned to you. Any cancellation will be charged a $50 processing fee due to credit card fees already paid by owner.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
