About Nan Smith

Hi, my name is Nan and I was born and raised in Beaufort, N.C. which is the beautiful historic waterfront town located just a few miles from Atlantic Beach. Every summer day as a child, I could not wait for our family to drive across the bridge to Atlantic Beach and today (many, many years later) I still get the same thrill. There is no where on earth that brings the kind of joy that our little slice of heaven does on the beach. Wether it is boating to Cape Lookout , riding bikes, taking long walks on the beach or just cooking a wonderful seafood dinner, any day spent in Atlantic Beach is a happy one.

Nan Smith purchased this townhome in 2004

Why Nan Smith chose Atlantic Beach

After spending every summer either renting or staying with parents on Front Street in Beaufort, N.C. we decided to buy a place of our own, to hopefully retire in one day. We live in Raleigh, N.C., but our hearts have always been in Carteret County. After growing up on Taylor's Creek on Front Street in Beaufort, N.C., I missed waking up and seeing blue water. After years of renting all over Atlantic Beach, we chose this place because of the incredible views, gorgeous woodwork throughout the home, and because it is big enough for all of our family and friends. We love the quiet location of Club Colony and the summer when the traffic gets heavy, it is so nice to turn left onto Fort Macon Road and deal with less congestion and traffic. Also I love looking down the beach and seeing the beautiful blue beach unbrellas from the Dunes Club next door. It is the perfect place for fun and leaving the cares of the world for a while.

What makes this townhome unique

Start each day with a cup of coffee either sitting on the deck or sitting inside on the sofa enjoying the unobstructed views of the ocean and beach. Fun to watch swimmers, kite surfers, and the beautiful blue beach unbrellas from the private beach club close by. After a fun day on the beach gather family and friends around the table for 12 and the granite countertop for 4, plus additional seating on deck.

Beautiful Home with fantastic views of the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using VRBO & we hit the jackpot! We had a wonderful week at Nan's beach home. It is a beautiful, comfortable & clean home with a super floor plan to maximize the ocean views. It is located in a very quiet neighborhood with easy access to the beach & fishing pier. All the bedrooms & bathrooms were comfortable & offered each family privacy. I would highly recommend this VRBO beach home! The Carey's

Wonderful week at the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best week in your beautiful home! Nan's home has everything you need for a week at the beach. Plenty of room for two families with children, and our teenagers claimed the room downstairs as their own. Easy walk to the beach, and the front porch rocking chairs were a hit. We are so appreciative of you checking in on us during the week to be sure that all was well, and for all the wonderful restaurant recommendations. Thank you for sharing your home...we loved it!

Great Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful, well appointed home. Absolutely no problems during the week. The kitchen is well equipped, beds are comfortable, and the view from the deck is amazing. No need to bring beach chairs and such, as there are plenty available for your use in the garage. We got lots of fun use out of the bikes that are provided as well. The owner is very proactive in making sure your stay is worry free. The location is great, convenient to grocery stores and some good restaurants. Great place for a nice quiet family retreat. We plan to be repeat customers.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I have been coming to Atlantic Beach for years. Our friend who first introduced us to the area got married in Beaufort so we jumped on the opportunity to turn it into into a long beach weekend. This house could not have been more perfect. It is spacious, convenient, clean, and comfortable. Exactly as advertised. Nan was also wonderfully friendly. Could not recommend more highly

Annual Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We are repeat renters because this is a fabulous, reasonably priced, well furnished rental especially for large families. Most importantly the owner is wonderful - always available for any questions, she even called to check if we had any problems from a large storm that passed through while we were there (we had none). Great location. Great views. Easy beach access. This is the perfect spot for a relaxing vacation.
