About the property

6 Master Suites, Pool, Hot Tub, Movie Theater, Game Room, Boat Ramp

Overlooking a stunning private harbor, 'Harbormaster' is soundfront, yet less than a quarter mile from the beach.

Four stories high, accessible by elevator, enjoy beautiful sunsets and front-row views of the kite boarders, wind surfers and sailboats that dot the sound, or just experience the starry night sky and the calm of the salt marshes. Harbormaster sleeps fourteen guests.

The top floor features a soundfront master bedroom and a beautiful clawfoot tub. The bedroom next door has two sets of bunk beds and features a luxurious steam shower. Both bedrooms have private balconies.

The third floor features the kitchen, with stainless steel appliances and granite counters, the dining room, living room, office area and powder room. A large deck overlooks the harbor. The living room has plenty of seating. Windows wrap around the third floor for spectacular views from the harbor to the ocean, and a whole-house music system adds to the experience.

The second floor has three king bedrooms with private bathrooms and balconies and another king suite that is wheelchair accessible with a roll-in shower.

The lowest level features a movie theater with power reclining leather chairs, a game room with pool table and pub table, three televisions, wet bar, dishwasher and refrigerator. The game room opens to the swimming pool and hot tub.

The Harbormaster includes access to the newly-restored 'Black Dog Harbor'. Enjoy fishing, kayaking, paddleboarding and boating from the harbor, dock and gazebo, and boat ramp. Explore the sound in a kayak, canoe or paddle board.

We have partnered with Shore Details to provide concierge services for our guests. Need a babysitter or birthday cake? Want your house to be stocked with groceries? Shore details can also recommend restaurants and activities.

Play on the top-rated, wide, sandy beaches, which are less than a quarter mile away, a short walk or bike ride. You can also pack your car with coolers and chairs, with plenty of parking at one of the dunes crossings. Convenient access to world-class windsurfing and kite-boarding, fishing, surfing, state parks, pirate lore, historic sites. The perfect combination of nature and vacation, sound and beach.

About L.A. Brickner

We've been visiting salvo since we were kids, so when the opportunity to purchase a soundfront home presented itself, we bought the aquaholic. The rental season was such a good experience, and when we had the opportunity to purchase the harbormaster, located nearby, we decided to create another luxury rental home.

L.A. Brickner purchased this house in 2013

Why L.A. Brickner chose Hatteras Island

We actually rented the Harbormaster (formerly named 'Boat House') five years ago as our first experiment in sound-front vacationing. It is a former model home for a planned neighborhood that failed due to the housing market collapse. It remained my dream home, so when it finally progressed through the many stages of bank negiations and was listed for sale, we purchased it with a plan to restore and redecorate it.

What makes this house unique

Harbormaster is one of two houses in a neighborhood that includes 10 empty lots, a barn, and a meeting house, all part of a neighborhood that has yet to be built. That means a private harbor, fishing pier and gazebo, plus plenty of open space. The unique nature of the harbor draws kiteboarders for your viewing pleasure off the many decks.

Absolutely beautiful, comfortable, high end home with some of the most beautiful sunsets I've seen!

  • 5 of 5

We have now stayed at both "Aquaholic" and "Harbormaster", and it has now become a yearly getaway for my family and friends. The addition of the private launch this year was perfect for the jetskis. The house is so comfortable, it was like we were home!

LOVE this property!

  • 4 of 5

This is the second time we have chose to stay at this property. We love the beautifully decorated home and well kept property. We also love the location and privacy, and the private bay the house sits on is just so picturesque!

Our only complaint was that during this stay, the internet service was in and out most of the time and the owner had switched to internet based television, so we were unable to watch the TVs most of the stay. Some of our group is older and their normal practice is to be able to watch TV at night while relaxing, but this was not possible due to the internet issues.

Other than that, we love this place and would return!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the kind words. We recognize that the internet-based televisions are problematic for some guest. We were attempting to upgrade to high-speed internet and cable television (rather than the former "dish" television and DSL), but after the installers came, discovered that the service to the neighborhood needs to be upgraded. We have been assured that the new service will be installed by the end of this month, but in the meantime, have provided internet-based television for guests. We hope to see you back next year, and assure you that the cable televisions will be available then. L.A.

Fantastic Property! Ideal for extended families & large groups.

  • 5 of 5

Harbormaster could not have been better suited to our needs. From the handicapped accommodations to the private harbor & gazebo, everything was perfect. Enough space that even with a large group there was no feeling of being crowded or underfoot. The views were amazing - kiteboarders to watch during the day and spectacular sunsets from the back porches every night. Every amenity that we could have wished for was provided. The owner was friendly and helpful, and the fishing was great!

Wonderful house with everything you need

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful stay with a well stocked kitchen, and ice maker was very nice to have. Movie room was a hit on bad days and the pool table offered fun galore. Some in the group wished we had local channels but I was fine with just netflix. The internet was not very good and kept dripping shows but supposedly was 5 g which is fast. We had difficulty getting on and staying on needing to reboot router daily. Owners were attentive and elevator was a must for the elderly. Location is perfect to relax and get away. Size was perfect and furniture was comfortable and functional. Charcoal and gas grill were perfect for cooking and the gazebo was fun for fishing. Having kite surfers daily was fun to watch at the end of the day and watching the shooting stars in the hot tub at night was so awesome. Nothing was lacking and the pictures do not do the place justice. A little hard to have small children because of stairs but nothing the owners can do about that. AWESOME!

Outstanding home with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

A group of us came up to kite board and although there was no wind which is quite unusual we still had a fabulous trip and enjoyed the many amenities of this beautiful home. The kitchen is perfectly equipped with everything you need and the layout is nice for big families or groups wanting to cook and eat together.The open kitchen and living area take up an entire floor where you can easily watch the gorgeous sunset over the sound. The second and fourth floor bedrooms were arranged to maximize privacy with private bathrooms and stunning views. Conveniently there are also washer/dryer units on both the second and fourth floor. The lower level has a pool table, bar and seated area for hanging out as well as a very comfy theater room. The pool, hot tub and outdoor shower were also nice and there is plenty of space to wash off and dry water sports equipment. Depending on the wind direction you can launch a kite from the property and easily launch a windsurfer. You can also go stand up paddle boarding and kayaking from the dock at the private marina in front of the house. The owners are super friendly and did everything they could to make sure our stay was spectacular. I'm sure I have forgotten some of the features and special touches but the owners haven't forgotten anything in creating a property that is unforgettable.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Harbormaster. The property is just beautiful. Every room in the house is beautifully decorated. The kitchen is well equipped for making great meals. The large dining table is great for games later in the evening. And of course, there is nothing better than watching the sunset from the gazebo.
