About the property

1500 Sq. Feet Includes 3 Bedrooms, 3 Bath With Full Kitchen. Amazing Views!

Unique one of a kind 1500 Square foot 3 BR and 3 bath in the heart of downtown Beaufort. You have a private Front Street entrance to take you to shopping, dining, the Beaufort waterfront and all it's amenities. Sit inside and watch the boats or go by, view the flat screen TV or head upstairs to the roof top deck. This unit gives you everything you need to make your vacation special.

Harborside Suites has one of the only roof top decks in Beaufort to give you the panoramic views of Taylors Creek, Beaufort, Fort Macon, Cape Lookout and the wild horses just across the water.

This historic building was renovated in 2001 and blends down east charm with an urban setting. Walk across the street and hop a water taxi to one of the many islands to swim, fish, shell or enjoy nature. Better yet, take the Cape Lookout express for a wonderful boat ride to visit Cape Lookout Lighthouse on the tip of the southern outer banks.

If you would like to dock your own boat at the city docks right out our front door just call 252-728-2503 and they will explain procedures and pricing. The Boat House at Front Street is about a mile or so down the road and has day storage, dry storage and a public landing is right beside them. Call for additional information 252-838-1524.

Walk to numerous restaurants or pubs, shop till you can't stand it anymore and then get some ice-cream or a cold one at multiple waterfront restaurants. Almost everything you need for a fantastic stay is provided. see note below***

If our Beaufort unit is unavailable and you would like to stay at the beach instead please check out our Ocean Front Duplex in Atlantic Beach. It is on VRBO as well and maybe that will work for you instead. Whithaven 2, vrbo 666411

***Please note linen and towel service is optional. Most guests choose to bring their own sheets (King, Queen, Twins) and towels. The cleaning service can provide linen and towel service for an additional charge with advance notice. Please either add $30 per room during payment or feel free to add the service by emailing or calling and you can be billed separately.

To help reduce some of the booking fee going forward in 2017 I have eliminated the insurance requirement since we have had minimal damage. Please help us continue this policy by reporting to me any damage during your stay. If it is minor we won't worry about it but I do want to repair or replace for the next guests so please help us keep the unit ready and updated for the next guest. Let Karma be our friend!

Why Lee or Dawn Whitley chose Beaufort

Unit A, The Big Wahoo is just an incredible property. From the Wahoo tiled on the floor to just sitting on the roof top deck you never tire of watching the boats go by. One of a kind views with a spacious 3 BR and 3 Bath unit in the heart of downtown Beaufort makes this a special place.

The many reviews tell you what you need to know, it is the perfect location to stay in Beaufort.

What makes this condo unique

Sure you can stay in a hotel but why would you when you can have your own private condo with breathtaking views of the waterfront?

While sitting inside on the couch you can watch the boats go by or walk up to the roof top deck and get a panoramic view of the southern outer banks and Rachael Carson Nature preserve. Almost every day you can watch the wild ponies feed in the nature preserve, while sitting inside your beautiful condo.

This is just a special unit, come see for yourself.

Perfect setup. Close to everything we needed. Checking in and out was a breeze! Can’t say enough about the upper deck. Thank you so much!

The mold smell made several of us sick and we left after one night.

  • 1 of 5

It needs a complete overall. Most important the rugs have been wet causing mold and the front windows need resealing as rain just pours in during a rain storm.

Owner's Response: I am sorry the weather was poor during your stay. If the window in the MBR was leaking I suspect it was not closed properly. I will have our maintenance folks check the outside frames of the front windows to reseal them to make sure they stay water tight. I have never had a complaint on any mold smells so we will make sure that is taken care of.

Picture perfect

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about the amazing views. We had a couple of breezy days, which made sitting on the rooftop perfect! Interior was well maintained and spacious. Location was in the heart of Beaufort. We will be back very soon!

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful 3/3 in a perfect location downtown overlooking Taylor's Creek and the Marina. The roof top deck was a plus and a perfect place to sit and relax in the evenings. Our stay was over the July 4th holiday and a great vantage point to watch the fireworks. We watched the parade from our unit...felt like a VIP!

Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

cleaning fee $95 + Tax
Pet Fee $75 + Tax
Tax Rate 12.75%

Most guests choose to provide their own towels and linens (king, queen and twin) so the base rental does not include those. My cleaning crew can provide both for an additional $25 per room. I will bill separately if you request linens after your initial booking but please let me know within 72 hours prior to your stay if you need linens. The $49 non refundable security deposit fee provides damage protection insurance for the unit and avoids you having to pay a damage deposit.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

Please ask the owner or check their rental agreement when booking the property.
