About Tracy and Mike Hollis

We are from Apex, NC. We purchased this condo from my husband's family. We loved this place so much and were able to make it our own. We have 2 boys, 13 and 16. Every time we came, we tried different things. We love to decorate this place, and you can find different things every summer. We hope you can make our vacation home as yours too!

Tracy and Mike Hollis purchased this condo in 2007

Why Tracy and Mike Hollis chose Central Coast

Pine Knoll Shores is centrally located on Bogue Banks and is known for its white sandy beaches. The area is pristine, with natural dunes and native trees and plants. The North Carolina Aquarium is located minutes away and there are many outdoor activities available, including Putt putt golf, sea kayaking in the sound, surf fishing from the beach, or surfing. Our boys enjoyed all the activities offered from the aquarium, there is also a cool play ground in Morehead City. They also like the musket demo from Fort Macon. Oh, and the boat rides to Sand Dollar Island and Shackle Ford Bank. We have been coming to this area before they were born, now they are 10 and 13, we just love our 2nd home!

What makes this condo unique

Our multi-level condo is located adjacent to a natural preserve, with views of native trees and plants, as well as, the ocean and beach. The beach setting outside is reflected on the inside with nicely decorated coastal decor, along with amenities such as wireless internet and cable TV.

The space is very accommodating, with a separate dining room and living room, in addition to three bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. There are balconies off the dining room and master bedroom, with beautiful ocean views and natural surroundings. And we also have lots of books and games for all ages.

The beach here is uncrowded, but not far from essentials such as groceries, pharmacy, or fishing bait. There are also very nice restaurants available nearby, as well as, other activities such as miniature golf, kayak rentals, and go carts. A boat ramp and parking is available within one mile, along with seafood, bait and a marina. You will find our condo is stock with lots of items. We want to make our place as your 2nd home as well.

Perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

This townhouse is perfect for families. It's the 3rd unit from the ocean, and maybe 75 feet from the door to your toes in the sand. The pool is at the end of the complex, but still really close. We were able to go from beach to pool easily. There were beach chairs, boogie boards, and sand toys you could borrow (we didn't because we had our own, but just an FYI). The master was a good size with great balcony views of the ocean. The kids enjoyed having a tv in their room, and a decent dvd collection. It was great having a washer/dryer in the home. My kids say this was their favorite beach house we've stayed in. We'll be back.

Another great week at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We are repeat vacationers at OG #36. The location is fantastic and the beach is never crowded. Mike and Tracy maintain the condo very well--and we have never had any concerns. Our favorite feature is the beach reading library. There are books for all ages to enjoy a great beach read! We will absolutely return for another year!

Probably the most beautiful ocean front condo complex I have ever had the pleasure of staying in.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was wonderful. Had everything we needed and then some. Perfect location between the pool and beach. The beach was nearly private, very few beachgoers leaving tons of space between families making it a very pleasant experience. The complex itself was beautiful; the wooded courtyard and tropical pool area were fantastic. Thanks so much Tracey and Mike for having us at your home away from home, we look forward to our next visit!

Car: recommended

Located in Pine Knoll Shores, minutes away from NC Aquarium, Fort Macan, historic Beaufort, biking, hiking, shopping, restaurants, miniature golf. Or take a short boat ride to Sand Dollar Island, Shackleford Bank to see wild horses. If you have small kids, Shevans Park in Morehead City is the best. And there are many more.
