This lovely three bedroom home is located on Harkers Island with gorgeous views of Back Sound and Cape Lookout Lighthouse. All the comforts of home. Sit in the rocking chairs on the front porch and enjoy the view, or take a ferry across to Shackleford Banks for swimming, fishing, shelling, or enjoying the wild ponies roaming the dunes. There are several marinas as well as a public boat ramp nearby where you can launch your boat, and there is boat parking at the house. Also on the island are the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum, several seafood restaurants, gift shops, a small grocery store, and bait and tackle shops. A short distance from the island is the historic town of Beaufort. There you can enjoy a variety of dining, shopping, and sightseeing options, as well as the Maritime Museum. In Morehead City and Bogue Banks are charter fishing boats, the Civil War era Fort Macon, and the NC Acquarium. Whatever you end up doing, you will find yourself having a wonderful time.

We really enjoyed our time.
We had stayed at the house before so we were aware of the space and the quality.
A few things needed repair.
One closet door off on upstairs bedroom to the left.
Outdoor hose faucet needs handle. Pliars there to open the water flow.
Wall patch in upstairs bedroom needs sanding and painting.
Upstairs bathroom shower head is too small. Very bad water pressure coming out.
We have stayed at Hightider several times. Always have a wonderful experience. It is our “go to” place at Harkers Island. We love the huge back deck with the table and chairs. The front porch with the rocking chairs is the perfect place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee and a good book. Plenty of parking. If you have a boat, there is room for that also. Kitchen is well stocked if you want to cook a meal. We had a couple of small issues, neither of which were the fault of the owner, but when I called Laura she responded immediately both times and the problems were resolved in a very timely manner. We will be back next year!!!
Nice 3 bedroom home, great for our long weekend with family. Place was clean, well equipped, and towel/linen service was excellent.
The only issue was that the outside trash can was full and running over when we got there.
Loved the house and it was close to everything.
Will come back soon.
Excellent accommodations, great, convenient location
Our rental was very clean, had all the amenities we needed, plenty of kitchen gadgets for cooking, and plenty of room for relaxing after long days on the water.
Communications with the owner were also very easy, and the owner was very helpful and accommodating to us.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and are already looking forward to next year, hopefully we'll be able to stay longer next time!
Great Home & Beautiful Location
The house was perfect for our weekend getaway. Absolutely loved the island and the convenience to Beaufort and Morehead City! The only issue was when we arrived, there were no linens for the master bedroom downstairs and the house hadn't been cleaned. Thankfully, it wasn't messy. I contacted the owner and within a few hours our linens were delivered. However, the house wasn't cleaned until the next day. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.
