About the property

4 Bedroom 4 Bath 16 Sleeps

Two story private oceanfront home. Deck and private walkway to large beach front lot in an exclusive neighborhood in Pine Knoll Shores. This newly renovated beach cottage sleeps 16 and boasts new tile floors on main level, decks, and updated kitchen, including granite countertops. Beautiful landscaping completes this package and makes this home one of the best deals around!

The layout has two bedrooms upstairs, each with a private bath and sliding glass doors to the ocean side deck. The bedrooms flank the upstairs living room which also has sliding glass and glass doors to the ocean side deck. The upstairs living is separated from the dining and kitchen by the large fireplace that rises from the downstairs to the roof. The kitchen and dining area has a door that opens to a street side deck with stairs down to driveway. The kitchen is one of the best stocked kitchens you will find in a rental anywhere! There are beautiful dishes to serve 16+, serving dishes, bowls, platters, pots and pans galore. A new smooth top range, Bunn coffee pot and a Keurig coffee pot for coffee lovers!

The downstairs also has a main living room flanked by two bedrooms with private baths. The living area downstairs is full of games, high quality foosball table, flatscreen TV and a DVD library. This is a great area for kids of all ages and provides a separate living area from upstairs.

Each of the four bedrooms have two queen beds, private bath and a closet. There is a large dresser with a mirror, night stands, updated bedding, pillows and lamps in each bedroom.

There is an outside cold water shower under the deck which currently does not have a stall. There is also a hose/foot wash mounted on the stairs coming from the beach.

There is a gas grill purchased in 2013 and a separate charcoal grill. There are also various beach chairs, umbrellas, skim boards, beach toys etc. These items may change as renters come and go so plan to bring anything you need! The deck has plastic beach chairs for a crowd.

The house is within a few short miles to the Food Lion, movie theater, and restaurants in Atlantic Beach and a short distance from Morehead City and Beaufort. This locations provides the 'best of both worlds' with a private location and proximity to everything you will need while here.

Hands down, for the rental price, this is one of the best deals in this area.

Why Misty Smith chose Central Coast

We love the large beachfront lot and the private neighborhood as well as the proximity to local restaurants and groceries.

What makes this house unique

Oceanfront, quiet, secluded yet close to Atlantic Beach, Morehead City and Beaufort. This is a classic beach cottage that has been updated to bring the best of the past to the present!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This property was better than I could have ever imagined. The layout is PERFECT for big or multiple families. The new steps to the desk on the street side were a fabulous surprise... much wider and easier to haul luggage and groceries up. The kitchen was better stocked than my own and we ended up not using a lot of things we brought. The ocean side deck has amazing view, plenty of chairs, and a quick walk to the beach. The furniture inside was comfortable and there were plenty of seats upstairs and down. I was surprised how clean and fresh the home smelled. I'm used to the older hotel properties of the area and no matter how clean they are kept, the heat and humidity of the area seems to keep them smelling damp and dingy. But this house was clean and fresh the whole week! Overall, this property is my new definition of paradise. The views, location, and layout more than make up for any slight inconveniences. We loved it so much that we already reserved the same property for next year!

What a fantastic week at the beach

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our week at Seaclusion. The kitchen was well stocked, we used the grill to cook and there were chairs and games, and everything we needed. We enjoyed the beautiful beach, which had great shells and waves, and also used the sound to kayak, which was very close. The sunsets over the ocean were gorgeous. My parents used the decks to sun because my dad had just had surgery and could not walk on the beach. The airconditioning was very comfortable on a warm week in August. We had 3 branches of my extended family and we liked that each bedroom had its own bathroom and that the downstairs had its own access to the beach. We all had the best time and we will definitely rent here again.

The only place we'll stay at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We have a great time every year when we return to this wonderful place right on the beach. With four very nice rooms (8 beds) each with their own bathroom we have plenty of room for the kids and adults. The view cannot be beaten and there is always plenty to do. The beach is wide and comparatively quiet and the sounds and smell of the ocean are only a few steps away from the back door. My wife is a stickler about beds but even she doesn't have trouble sleeping when we're there. My mom spent the entire time on the beach just watching the birds and the children and I even caught a few fish right out back! Beautiful granite counter tops and new appliances make dinners a breeze when we eat in or there are nice places to eat just down the road. With Atlantic Beach, Morehead City and Emerald Isle just a few miles away we get the best of both worlds with a comfortable, quiet, safe place to stay and three charming beach towns in one trip. Every year we rediscover the NC Aquarium and love it even more. Whether for sunrise or sunset or anytime in between, a stay at this house will satisfy anyone's desire to reconnect with the beach at it's best!

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 adults and 5 teenagers for our vacation this year....Yes! 5 TEENAGERS!! With this house we had room to spare! It was perfect. The setup couldn't have been better. We had room to be together and then when we needed space to be apart. The downstairs had it's own TV, pool table and Foosball table. The kids ages ranged from 16 to 19 and they thought they had hit the lottery. The kitchen was awesome......better than mine at home! Steps from the beach and a wonderful deck to sit and enjoy the scenery. I highly recommend this house to anyone who loves the beach and enjoys the comforts of home. Hope we can make this a yearly place for us!

The best family beach house ever!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and family rented this very special beach house for 11 years in the late 80's and most of the 90's. Since we all had young families, we did not mind that the house was rented as it was; just a big old beach house with a great view, but just a bit rundown. MOVE FORWARD TO 2015 and NEW OWNERS and we have found our wonderful house again on VERBO. Every room has been renovated and the house has everything you'll need for the perfect beach experience. You cannot beat the view, sand and surf and all the pictures on the site are exactly as you will find it. All four bedrooms have their own bath, the kitchen is up-to-date and well stocked and there is lots of common space inside and great decking over the dunes.

We spent 5 glorious days, this time with our grown-up children, making new memories and having a wonderful time. We left with tears in our eyes and promised we would be back as soon as we could.

Lots of surprises

  • 1 of 5

Upon arrival there was piled trash at the end of driveway, stayed for three days. Kitchen well equipped, beds for 16 as advertised. Downstairs temp like freezer, so cold, could not be adjusted. The dishwasher sounded like it would explode, had to run when left each day. The washing machine sounded like it had loose parts within. The louvered blinds would not close fully. The shower in one of the upstairs bedrooms had almost no water flow, nor would it drain. No shade on the long back deck, not usable during summer sun, until 7pm

Owner's Response: As owners of Seaclusion we are disappointed that this guest had an unsatisfactory experience at our cottage. My husband and I purchased the cottage in January of 2013 and have worked hard every year to improve the property so that it is enjoyable for all who spend time there. I discussed every issue with this guest and we plan to assess each item personally to see what we can do to improve/repair it. Since we are not at the property during the rental season, we have a very responsive property management company in Atlantic Beach that is available daily and for after hour emergencies who would have attempted to repair the slow drain had they been notified. That said, the house is rented from June through the end of August and, unfortunately, damage does occur with rental usage, like sand in the bathroom drains. We have no control over the trash pickup but the property manager did remove the trash when they were notified. We will work to improve communication and instructions on waste/recycle removal for guests. The dishwasher is old and loud, it still works very well but will be replaced this fall and, yes, vertical blinds are a constant source of irritation! The lower level is cooler than the upper level because of the latent heat through the upstairs glass doors. The thermostat upstairs controls the entire house, including the downstairs. We have permanently closed many of the downstairs vents to try and manage the temperature difference. The washer was purchased new in 2013 and we discovered six dimes and two nickles in the drum! No more sound of loose parts! Yes, it is very hot on the deck in the summer time! Our first table with umbrella and chairs was destroyed by winds. When we left the property in May there were two umbrellas and a stand in the garage. We have another set of deck table and chairs arriving this fall. This year alone we installed a new flat screen television in the upstairs living room, as well as a new refrigerator and gas grill. All renters through this site can have my personal email and phone number and are always welcomed to call, text or email me with any issues or questions. Seaclusion remains a tremendous value as an oceanfront cottage in a private neighborhood at a very reasonable rate.
