Welcome to our Surf City, NC beachfront home. Here our guests BREATHE IN JOY and breathe out stress. You will experience bliss and joy during your entire stay at our ocean front haven.

We believe whether you are on vacation or on retreat, you should arrive to a fully stocked home that is ready to welcome you in with open arms. We believe you should be worry-free and we will work diligently to ensure that everything is in clean, working order. If by chance something stops working during your stay, you will have access to our on-call-handyman who will get there promptly to service the home.

Location is everything when you're traveling and here you will find beauty as mother-nature intended it, right out your front windows. The views are spectacular. Our private decking system will leave you right on the beach. We are within walking distancing to the Surf City pier, restaurants, shopping, coffee shops, smoothie bars, yoga studios, and so much more.

Rest your head in one of 4 spacious bedrooms -- two of which are oceanfront -- and let your cares wash away with the tide as you relax on one of two furnished decks; one of which is covered.

In addition to covered parking, extra public parking near our home can accommodate larger groups.

Three of the 4 bedrooms have Apple TVs in addition to the one in the living room.

There is a king bed in the bedroom on the main floor. This is ideal for those that don't want to walk up and down steps from the main living area. The bottom floor has three bedrooms. The master has it's own bathroom and a king bed in addition to access to the ocean front deck. Another ocean view bedroom has a queen bed and also has direct access to the deck. A fun and playful bedroom with 2 sets of bunk beds provides an inviting space for the children in your party or the young at heart.

We have a pack 'n play (master bedroom closet) and a high chair (upstairs king bedroom closet) for your convenience if you're traveling with young children.

We will only allow 1-2 crate trained dogs at a time. We do not allow any dogs on any of the beds. This boundary is in place for the comfort and enjoyment of all of our guests. Pet hair has a way of sticking to linens no matter how many times they get laundered.

An outdoor shower is available for your comfort. We are within walking distance of several restaurants so please just come, park your car for the duration, and enjoy your vacation. It's an honor to share our home with you...we hope you love it as much as we do!

About Beata Lorinc

Hello, my name is Beata (rhymes with Miata) but you can call me Be. I've had "own a beach house" on my vision board since I was 30, and a few months before my 40th birthday my dreams came true. My husband and I are proud Penn Staters and currently live in Cary, NC with our two sons Leo (2006) and Dylan (2009), our new puppy (born 7/1/2017) our 4 cats (don't worry, none of the cats will come to the beach house).

My father is a skilled carpenter and mason an my mother is a professional housekeeper and I have been running Handy Maven, a boutique remodeling firm in Baltimore for them since 2012. I have been flipping houses with my dad since I was 12. I can not wait to dive in and continue making upgrades and remodels to this already gorgeous, sturdy and well maintained home.

Before I left my corporate career to raise my boys, I was a Logistician for Procter & Gamble. My favorite assignment was leading the customer service team,

I am also a trained speaker, writer, and trainer. I LOVE leading retreats and leadership events. My goal is to be of service to you in any way that I can be. I am the proud creator and leader of the Bliss Academy for Success and offer small business strategic consulting and implementation accountability.

My goal is to understand what kind of experience you are looking for and to deliver it with excellence. You can simply rent my home and have a DIY experience, or you can hire me to be your personal concierge planning and implementing anything that you and your fellow travelers will like. I have access to the best coaches speakers, artists, yogis, meditation experts and so much more in the country and would be happy to personalize your experience if that is what you would like.

Beata Lorinc purchased this house in 2016

So relaxing and so close to the water!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking to get away for a few days before the birth of our first child. The house was awesome! Very spacious and open, perfect beach place! Back deck was awesome. Everything was easy and wonderful. We are looking forward to coming back again!

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

We had an amazing time at Beata's home. We did have a snafu with the fan and air conditioner but Beata and team got the situation corrected quickly and to our satisfaction. The home offered amazing views of the ocean. The color palette of the home was beachy and the very little details within the home truly added to our beach vacation. You can tell that this owner cares and wants to insure that your beach vacation is as memorable and hassle free as possible.

Thank you Beata for sharing your home with us.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely, nice remodeled, clean and one of the handful that offered a few nights stay instead of requiring the full 7 days. We loved that the relaxing, peaceful and uncrowded beach was just steps away. The owner provided things that normally doesn't come with a rental so we didn't have to worry about bringing or buying a ton of extra stuff, which was a big plus. The owner was very responsive and pleasant to work with. There were a couple of things that didn't work but were minor. Overall, it was a wonderful vacation.
