Enjoy your Master Bedroom with private bath. Its second story, covered balcony boasts water views and the size to enjoy in private or with guests. Indulge in your European steam shower and custom-tiled, dual-head shower spa. Yourr upstairs bedroom is perfect for young children with its two day beds, comfortingly enclosed on three sides. Two pull-out trundles are great for siblings. Or, the bedroom can be put to good use by single friends maximizing space on vacation! Enjoy the walk-in closet and private bathroom which also includes a soaking tub. The downstairs guest bedroom can also double as a temporary office with its desk and mini-sitting area (including a sail chair made locally from up-cycled, racing-grade, boat sail!). It is also the location of the wireless router which affords high speed internet throughout the home. Your custom kitchen has bar seating as well as a more formal dining area for six. In addition to typical amenities, enjoy your espresso maker, charcoal grill, and unusual cookware including a pressure cooker favored in many cuban dishes. You'll also find your kitchen basics fully stocked on arrival-- we do ask that you replenish what you use and we welcome suggestions on what you'd like to see added in the future. Your sitting room comes equipped with a 42' flat screen tv with HD cable, whole house DVR and Apple TV as well as a Wii and Wii Fit for gaming enthusiasts! Besides enjoying a game, Blue Ray DVD, or cable, feel free to enjoy a book, strum the guitar, or pass an afternoon on the downstairs covered porch gazing at the ocean or listening to shore birds and clinking of the ships' rigging. Enjoy croquet in your yard, stroll through the picturesque neighborhood, or take a swim or a suntan in the in-ground pool. If exploring's your passion, the marina, coastal walk, and historic Southport are just down the street. If bar-life or food are your passions, stroll to six right on the water-- and don't be surprised to watch dolphins play while you eat (or drink!). Jump on your bikes or walk a little farther for the shopping or antiquing which brings day trippers down from Wilmington, Oak Island, or Bald Head. Terrific beaches are easily accessible by car and/or ferry, ranging from minutes on neighboring Oak Island to 30 minutes or so for Wilmington area destinations. Or, with an additional security deposit, fee, and proof of boating experience, use your 18' Grady White with a Yamaha 150, berthed within eyesight of your home, and the entire coast is your playground! Pack a picnic and Pelican Island can be your private beach, and is a 5-minute boat-ride away. Visit Bald Head Island and its miles of pristine beaches, including terrific body-surfing and surfing breaks. Boat the Intracoastal and stop for lunch, dinner, or drinks, wherever you fancy! If golf's your passion, St James Plantation is right around the corner by boat or car. Original art throughout including works by local artists and the Georgia-based, Sandra Sacco. Custom ceiling fans throughout.

Car: Not Necessary
Welcome to your vacation home, situated along the shores of the Cape Fear River and the Intracoastal Waterway, at the river's mouth of the Atlantic Ocean. You've seen Southport in little screen productions including 'Revenge' and 'Dawson's Creek', and big screen features including 'I know What You Did Last Summer', 'Nights in Rodanthe', and 'Safe Heaven'. Come enjoy this picturesque town, founded in 1792, yet still retaining its 'fishing village charm.' Find quiet, restaurants even a foodie would enjoy such as quiet romantic gems like The Pharmacy-- or embrace the bustle and fresh local seafood of Mr. P's-- or grab drinks and dinner on the water, listening to live local bands at Fishy Fishy-- or dine in, feasting on seafood from Potters, Clems, or Haag & Sons, pulled from the waters you see from your vacation home... Enjoy major events such as The North Carolina Fourth of July Festival, the 28th Annual Spring Festival, the 6th Annual Bay Creek Classic Benefit Flounder Tournament, the 4th Annual Southport Wooden Boat Show, or the U.S. Open King Mackerel Tournament. Or come on a quiet night or weekend... No need for a car once you arrive, either. Our semi-private pool is a walk across the street. Four waterfront bars and restaurants are 5 minutes away by foot. Downtown shops and restaurants are less than 10 minutes away by foot. Or, ride one of our old-style bikes and whittle your travel time in half... If you choose to, contact us about the use of our 18' Grady White 180 Sportsman. Equiped with a Yamaha 150 HP, GPS and Sonar, and a Fusion sound system, you can sink your toes and beach comb in the pristine sands of Pellican Island in 5 minutes, explore exclusive Bald Head Island in 15 minutes, accept the challenge of off-shore fishing within 30 minutes, or meander the intracoastal stopping to dine in marinas or drop anchor where the mood takes you... On rainy days, relax at home with two flat screen TVs, over 240 HD channels, whole house DVR, Apple TV, a Blue Ray player, gaming on your Wii, or dabble with a puzzle. Or, explore downtown and sift through countless antique shops, artist show rooms, restaurants and bars. And if the mood strikes you, remember one of Southport's slogans 'we don't have a town drunk; we all just take turns'!
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Carrie first glimpsed picturesque Southport while boating, enroute to attend a fairy-tale wedding on nearby Bald Head Island. It was a few years before she and I could make it a reality, but it's been every bit worth the wait! We take great pleasure in welcoming you, and we hope you'll enjoy making our family home part of your family, year after year. Welcome.
Why the Owner Chose Southport, NC, USA:
Our family fell in love with this home, literally from the moment we saw it! Our kids compared the Key West colors to Candyland, Carrie loved the antiquing, and we both loved the uniqueness of Southport! Despite living and vacationing in destination locales such as Nantucket Island, MA, Kiawah Island, SC, the Hamptons in New York, and all around Southern California, we have found ways Southport equals or exceeds them all--and we're still discovering new things every time we visit! Come explore, and let us know what you find!
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
If you fall in love with Crazy Birds as we did-- or have some experiences too memorable to forget-- leave a photo! Every year we plan to frame and mount a sample of these, and feature them throughout. So, all together, we'll make Crazy Birds part of our family history!
