About Becky Wethington or Robert Wethington

Robert and I currently live in Kinston, NC and started out as 'weekenders' in this great community with our three children, but now that our children are grown and gone we are spending more and more time there. We both have always loved the water, boating and fishing. We eventually built a house in the community and spend every minute we can there.

Becky Wethington or Robert Wethington purchased this house in 2008

Why Becky Wethington or Robert Wethington chose Havelock

We acquired this property in 2008 because we wanted a place on the water. It had been vacant and needed repair due to a prior hurricane. We saw the potential the property had and we took the bull by the horns and went to work making renovations. We had already built our house when this house became available for purchase. We love both homes and have decided to give others a chance to enjoy 'Easy Living'.

What makes this house unique

Waterviews and dock along with the peaceful community setting.

Perfect place for our family trip!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family chose this rental for a number of reason including the fishing and the location to other things that we wanted to do. We were not expecting the great experience that we had. The house is well maintained and so clean!! There was more then enough room for our crew of 7. We walked away with so many great memories of catching fish, shrimp, and crab that were sweeten by the expert advice, friendliness and support given to us by Becky and Robert. They had everything all set up before we even got there so that we could have crab in the pots and minnows for fishing. The neighborhood was quiet and everyone seemed so friendly. And we were within a pleasant driving distance from other adventures like Atlantic Beach and Shackleford Island. We couldn't have picked a better place to stay. We really hope to make it back there again.

Family weeekend

  • 5 of 5

We booked from the family owners at the last minute, and they could not have been more accommodating. They let us change our arrival date and time with no problems or complaints. The house and yard were immaculate. They had the minnow and crab traps baited and waiting for us! They offered to help,us novice boaters get our boat in the water, helped us navigate, and even showed our younger. Holden fresh caught shrimp. The neighbors even brought us barque they had cooked for a birthday party! We plan to return soon!

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a last minute long weekend to visit my son that is stationed in the area. The house is clean and very well kept. I wanted a home environment to be able to make big family meals and just relax and enjoy my family. This house was perfect for that and the kitchen had everything that I needed!! We also brought our kayaks and fishing gear. We had a great time on the water. I even saw a group of river otters while kayaking. The neighborhood is very peaceful and quiet. Robert and Becky were great hosts!! We caught blue crab in the traps they set and Robert showed the boys how to clean them. DELICIOUS :)

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. We are so glad that you were able to spend quality time with your son in a "home environment ". No doubt that he enjoyed Mama's home cooking. So glad that you saw the otters while you were kayaking, maybe dolphins next time. We were also more than happy to share the crabs with you and glad that you enjoyed them. Please come back again soon.

Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We booked Becky & Robert's rental for a last minute fishing vacation. My Dad, Husband, Son(13), Nephew(15) & Niece(10) and myself had a relaxing & fun vacation at this rental. The house was spotless! I have been booking vacations homes for 2yrs and never stayed at one this clean and comfortable. Becky/Robert(owners) were a great source of information on fishing tips and local things to do. Robert even showed my nephew and I how to clean a crab, what an awesome memory! Bring your boat, kayaks, canoes,fishing poles, bikes and yard games to enjoy this property. We launched kayaks right from the backyard and fished off the dock. Beautiful sunsets! The neighbors were very nice, too. The kids did miss having WiFi but they spent more time outside or playing cards since it wasn't available. Becky/Robert are very responsive and excellent hosts!

Break away from everyday worries here!

  • 5 of 5

Another wonderful vacation at this home! We love it there. The price, atmosphere, location, neighbors, owners and all can't be beat! Always something fun to do and never bored. If you're looking to "get away from everyone and everything" this is the place to do it! No nosey people, no ringing phones, no one to bother you. Just friendly people who are there to help if needed. Still want the beach? Hope on the ICW and go find your own private beach just a few mins up the river or hope over thru the Pamlico Sound and go to Oriental "The Sailboat Capital" . Mrs Becky and Mr Robert will make sure you have everything you need except for stress! No worried are allowed! We have 4 children and they love it there!
