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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Rodanthe, NC, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Harbormaster is the only house on a street that includes 11 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.
