About the property

2 bedrooms/1.5 bathrooms Ocean & Sound Views

Please see our Facebook page for upcoming events.

You will find a clean, comfortable, relaxed home, just steps from the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. Enjoy a direct view of the ocean from the master bedroom, living room and roof top deck to start and end your day the island way. You can watch the sun rise & set and even see dolphins swimming and jumping in the waves close to the shore.

There is a full kitchen equipped with everything you need; a breakfast bar with stools plus a dining table, washer, dryer and dish washer. The kitchen is open to the living area which has a comfortable sofa, an oversized chair/ottoman, side chair, a TV, and a DVD player. There are games and cards for quiet times, too.

The master bedroom has a King bed and private bath. The second bedroom offers a Queen bed and oversized chair that converts to a twin sleeper.

There is also an enclosed outside shower and dressing area for post-beach clean-up!

All linens are included. The unit has WiFi, TV, and DVD player. TV's in LR and both bedrooms.

This area has a great deal to offer for everyone in the family. There are deep sea fishing/ocean charters available on the causeway and in Morehead City, pier fishing, a short walk down the beach, recently upgraded beach public access that is handicapped accessible with play area & bath house, surf fishing, boat rentals, kayak rentals , bike rentals, jet skiing, and para-sailing. The Rachel Carson Preserve is also nearby. Water Taxi boats leave from both Beaufort and Morehead City to the barrier islands [Shackelford Banks and the Cape Lookout Light House and National Seashore] for beautiful excursions that include seeing the native wild Horses, shelling, fishing, birding, camping, lighthouse climbing, and touring historic villages as well as the working Cape Lookout Light House. The whole family will enjoy a day on the water.

Or plan a trip to Harkers Island to see the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum with beautiful hand carved Duck Decoys or the Cape Lookout National Seashore Visitors Center. If you prefer a ferry ride, take the ferry from Cedar Point to Ocarcoke, a quaint, charming island/village that is accessible by water only. For those that prefer dry land, there are plenty of cute shops and restaurants with delicious local seafood. Start the day at the Fort Macon State Park exploring the Fort and visitors center, then have a delicious seafood lunch and head to the Aquarium for a cool afternoon learning about local sea life and coastal history. The gift shop here is one of the best around!

This is the perfect beach getaway for you and your family. The is plenty to do for each family member or just relax and watch the waves roll in from your deck, It is so comfortable and relaxing you will not want to go home! Honestly the pictures don't do it justice.

Recent updates: Fall 2013 - Sliding doors in living room and bedroom replaced with 8 foot dual pained smooth sliding doors.

Electric Fireplace installed. Great to cozy up next to on chilly fall and winter evenings.

What makes this house unique

The stunning views from the roof top deck are the best on the Island! You can see Morehead City, almost to Beaufort and down the beach to Pine Knoll Shores. Once you see a sunset from here, you will understand why we had to have this home!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Me and my dad celebrated our birthdays here and had a great Father's Day, too! Your house was beautiful and was perfect for this family. My dad loved how close it was to the beach and a lot of other places. On day we rode our bikes to the AB Ice Cream & Candy Shoppe. We loved the decks and board games. The brought the family closer together. We had an amazing time! Thank you

Great place to stay , we are already planning for next year but for a longer stay. House was very well equipped with tons of free stuff to use at the beach which is just a short walk away. The pier is also a short walk away, conveniently located . We couldn't believe the views from the rooftop deck . Lots of other beaches plus places to eat , breakfast, lunch or dinner . Best place we've stayed on crystal coast

How does one describe a perfect vacation destination ? Easy, Atlantic Beach North Caroline without a doubt. Our stay at the Robert and Andrea's duplex was absolutely perfect. We felt like we were at home. The picturesque view from the pouch was amazing and sitting on the upper pouch viewing the stars was heavenly. Robert and Andrea were very easy to communicate with and very helpful. Plenty of great restaurants, sites to see and the beach was amazing. Highly highly recommend staying here. Looking forward to returning.

Perfect beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Beautiful ocean view from both balconies. Ate almost every meal outside on the deck! Little path in the back yard leads to the board walk that takes you right down to the beach. Super clean upon arrival, had everything we needed. Seemed more spacious than pics showed. Days were hot, but there always seemed to be a nice breeze to keep us comfortable. Overall, we had a wonderful trip & would highly recommend this place!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful stay. The place lived up to the description. It was a quick walk to the beach for my morning and evening walks. And I loved just sitting on the deck. The unit had everything that I needed for a relaxing getaway. It's beautifully decorated and has some great artwork. Bob and Andrea are delightful hosts. I will definitely be back.

Comfortable, great location, views of ocean and sound

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd year here and the location is perfect. It is a quick walk to the beach, close to a marina and a pier is near by. We watched the sun rise and set from the 3rd floor viewing deck. The owners are easy to work with and the home is clean and the kitchen well stocked. Sheets and towels are included which makes packing easy. The owners keep the home well maintained and updated as the new granite countertop and new flooring is not only beautiful but easy to clean.
