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.

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!

We love Seaclusion!

  • 5 of 5

Our most recent stay at Seaclusion was on par with all the rest of our stays there, excellent! Our stay has become a yearly tradition for our family. Plenty of privacy in the four bedrooms and also lots of space for us to gather and have fun. The kitchen is set up well and beautiful. There's a game room and lots of things to do, including foosball! The kids stay entertained non stop and adults can just relax on the wide, almost "private", beach. All appliances worked as advertised and the AC was nice and cold. The beach is just out the back door so no need to pack a beach cart or load up the car. Want a cold water? Just go get it, back in a few...We love the location as there is plenty of local stuff to do. We drove into Beaufort, only 10 minutes away, and visited that small town and museum and had a great time. Next day we went to NC Aquarium and loved it too! Overall a great experience, highly recommended-- and we will be back next year!

Lovely location for relaxation and family bonding

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was clean and welll-maintained for an older home. The layout with two separate living areas was ideal for our family to spread out, both with comfy furniture for movie and game night. The kitchen is updated, with new appliances and well stocked for big family meals. The location was great. Steps to the beach, a short drive to restaurants, groceries, golf, and mini-golf. We would recommend this place and hope to stay there again!

Great house for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfectly situated in a quiet, residential area of Pine Knoll Shores. With four bedrooms and four bathrooms, it was a great fit for our multi-generational family of 11. We have stayed in numerous rentals at beaches up and down the Eastern shore, and everyone agreed this home had the most well-equipped kitchen we've ever used. The two upstairs bedrooms had gorgeous views; the two bedrooms in the basement were clean and adequate, but without views.

During two afternoons of our stay, a man who was kitesurfing took off from the beach right in front of our rental, and entertained us for hours as he soared and dipped and flew across the ocean.

This home is not what I would call elegant, but it was perfect for our family and provided everything we needed for a great family vacation.

Great Location on the Beach

  • 4 of 5

Our third year spending a week at SeaClusion. We have had as many as ten grandchildren aged 3 to 18 and six adults. The four bedroom four bath with two queen sized beds in each bedroom make it work.

Fully equipped eat in kitchen with table that seats ten and an island that seats four. Large Family room, downstairs rec room and plenty of flat screens. WiFi included. Gas grill provided. Plenty of parking for up to six cars.

Clean, linens and towels provided. Two refrigerators. Great large deck looking out at beach. We’ve booked next year already!

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!
