About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Condo Right On The Beach!



Inquire via 'Email Manager' or “Get an Instant Quote” and we will let you know what is available as well as refer you to our property manager for details and to reserve! Rentals are Sat.-Sat., weekly during peak, partial weeks last minute or off-season; monthly also available off-season. We look forward to hearing from you!

This vacation home is RIGHT on the beach and has spectacular ocean views plus a pool. It is also like a comfy cottage all on one floor – reachable by elevator. :o) It is the perfect vacation spot for a couple, a couple of couples, or a family who enjoy the beach and the ocean along with privacy, peace, quiet, all the comforts of home, and plenty of coastal Carolina fun nearby.

It is in the human-scale, all oceanfront Maritime West community in the Beacon’s Reach development on the Crystal Coast of North Carolina, part of the Southern Outer Banks. Maritime West consists of 38 privately owned units in three buildings. Our condo is on the third floor of the most private building. It looks directly out on the private beach and features a master bedroom with a window wall facing the beach and sliding glass door to the covered, screened porch. The ocean-facing porch is also accessible from the main living area, giving everyone ocean sounds and breezes from the comfort of the condo. In addition, there is a side view of the community pool, and a back view of a maritime forest of yaupon, wax myrtle, and live oak. The unit is next to the elevator and outdoor stairs taking you to and from the wooden walkway and dune-top deck, the beach, and the pool, as well as your two reserved parking spaces. Everything you need for the perfect North Carolina beach rental vacation is here, including a full kitchen and laundry room.

Since the majority of the Maritime West owners do not rent their units out, you will find our beach and pool uncrowded and quiet. That does not mean there is nothing else to do! Close by (less than a mile) is the North Carolina Aquarium. There are also many restaurants, amusement parks for the kids, shops, grocery stores, library, gas stations, and post office within a few miles. There is even a golf course right on the island, only minutes away, with additional courses on the mainland. Any water activity you want, including deep-sea fishing and scuba diving, is close at hand. Or perhaps you just want to sit back and watch dolphins from our living room while reading a book from our library. You choose – it is your vacation! With your vacation condo rental, you also have access to all amenities of Beacon’s Reach, including the sound side marina, walking paths, tennis and basketball courts, fishing ponds, and pools.

Our beach island is surrounded by beach communities including Morehead City, Atlantic Beach, Salter Path, historic Beaufort, Emerald Isle, and historic Swansboro. It is a perfect North Carolina beach rental and vacation spot!

About Owners

Barney and Janis live in the Washington, DC area and have long been involved in high technology and public policy. Barney is a rocket scientist (!) who grew up in Selinsgrove, PA. Janis is a renewable energy/ science communications/ government relations/ proposal manager / nonprofit executive who was raised in the DC area. Our kids are grown with families of their own, and have been happily test-driving the condo.

Owners purchased this condo in 2012

Why Owners chose Central Coast

When we first walked in the door, we said, 'WOW!' We arrived 'thinking about maybe' finding an investment property, and now, the WOW is ours!

What makes this condo unique

The view is spectacular: the beach is RIGHT THERE outside the huge bedroom windows and screened porch. The building and community are pristine, including the grounds, boardwalk to the beach, and community pool. There is assigned parking for 2 cars, outdoor showers, and the beach is private for the community. Not only that, the condo is as comfortable as being at home! It is great for summer, but also amazing in the winter. We've added an electric fireplace for extra warm and cozy nights.

We have a storage room that is fully stocked with beach chairs, tables, umbrellas, toys, floats, noodles, a bike, a shovel and bucket, cooler, and many fishing poles and tackle (thanks to guests who leave them!)

As part of the larger Beacon's Reach, guests also have access to our sound-side marina and dock, tennis courts, playgrounds, other pools. Now, guests also have access to the community exercise facility, which is a short walk from the condo.

On the beach, sooo comfortable, peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property every year since it first opened for guests, and we will continue to come back! It is a special place--a real home away from home, rather than a plain old rental. If you don't want spectacular beach views, a full stock of beach equipment for you to use, and many personal conveniences and comforts---this is not the place for you. :o) If you do, book early! It tends to be rented out well in advance throughout the year.

Picture Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

It has been some weeks now since we enjoyed a picture perfect week on the beach and in your condo. It is the most perfect condo and location that we have had the privilege of staying in for some time now. You struck a winner for location and views! I know you are planning some upgrades and redo's, but you've made it a very nice place to stay already. The condo is a great arrangement for two couples or a small family. We look forward to your improvements and to staying there again in the future. We're not on the calendar yet for a return visit, but we shall return!

Soooo Comfy!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Janis & Barney,

We just wanted to express how much we appreciated all the little touches that awaited us upon our arrival. The comfortable furniture, especially the bed in the Master B.R. all the way to the pillow preferences. Everything was clean and ready for our arrival. You really know how to treat your guests and I wanted to let you know how much it is appreciated.

PS: The kitty decor is adorable!! :o)
