About the property

Oceanfront 4 bed, 3 bath with elevator. Sleeps 10. Walking distance to town

This a privately owned home in Surf City, NC conveniently located only .4 of a mile from the Surf City pier. We are far enough away from the main pier area to avoid the crowded beach and the noise but close enough to walk to restaurants, the local grocery store and shopping. It's the perfect setting for family vacations, relaxing getaways, or enjoyable reunions with friends.

The house is beautifully decorated in an elegant but comfortable style that is inviting and warm and is well appointed with all of the amenities needed for a stress-free vacation.

The beach house has a reverse floor plan with the kitchen and living/dining room located on the top floor providing panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and a fantastic view of the pier from two sides. The open concept design provides plenty of space for sharing time with family & friends.

The living/dining room feature vaulted ceilings, a sectional couch featuring a new pull-out queen mattress for additional sleeping capacity, and a 48' flat screen TV. The top floor also has 1 bedroom with a queen bed and a newly renovated bathroom. The bedroom ad bathroom area can be closed off from the kitchen and living room to create a private suite. The upstairs bathroom has been completely renovated with gorgeous tile, a no step-in shower with grab bars and a fold down teak seat, making it extremely handicap friendly! There is also a covered deck off the living room which is great place to enjoy your morning coffee, read a book, or watch the dolphins swim by.

The lower level features 3 bedrooms (including the master), 2 bathrooms and a washer and dryer. The master bedroom includes a king-sized bed with an ocean view, 46' flat-screen television, and an en-suite bathroom. From the master bedroom you can step onto the lower deck that has comfortable seating and provides direct access to the beach.

There are 2 additional bedrooms on the lower level. One features a queen-sized bed, while the other has two single beds. Each bedroom features a 32' flat-screen television with cable access. There is also a full bathroom for these bedrooms to share.

There is a full size washer & dryer available on the lower floor. Guests are required to provide their own linens and towels during their stay.

In addition, the beach home features an exterior shower with hot and cold water (convenient when returning from the beach). You will also find a gas grill for your use in the carport area.

A private elevator located in the carport allows for easy movement of items (groceries, bags, etc.) into and out of the beach house. It also provides easy access for people that have difficulty with stairs since it stops at all levels of the house. WiFi is available through out the house.

There is plenty of parking available. The concrete driveway is 75' long x 21' wide and will easily accommodate up to 7 vehicles including boats and trailers as needed. There is also one covered parking space under the building.

It is a standalone house and while it shares a common entry way with the home next door, there are no shared walls. The decks also have privacy barriers so you can enjoy the outside space.

About Tammy & Mike

We recently bought this property (formerly Gator Shores), because we loved the area and the beaches but we also loved the subtle elegance of a beach house with an upscale feel to it. After surviving a record year of snow in Boston in 2015, we decided to live here in the off season and re-named the house "No Mo Sno".

Our primary goal is offering a relaxing, comfortable environment to our guests at a good value while exceeding your expectations for a vacation home. Your satisfaction is very important to us and we encourage your feedback. We are interested in finding guests who will appreciate and take care of our home while they enjoy their time at this terrific beach. We will always give repeat customers first preference in reserving future rental dates because we are interested in a long-term relationship with our guests.

When we first walked into this house we could feel the stress leaving us, we hope that you will have that same experience.

Tammy & Mike purchased this house in 2014

Why Tammy & Mike chose Surf City

This property the perfect combination of beach house and home which made us feel that we could be just as happy living here fulltime as renting. We hope that our guests will have that same feeling.

What makes this house unique

The location offers the convenience of local amenities within walking distance along with a quiet atmosphere.

Wonderful beach house

  • 5 of 5

This was my second visit to No-Mo-Snow this year. I can't image a nicer beach house than this. It is well furnished and very comfortable. The view is beautiful. There is nothing better than sitting on the deck drinking your coffee while watching the dolphins. The location can't be beat. You are within walking distance to the pier yet far enough away to not be bothered by noise. Tammy and Mike are always very helpful when you have questions or problems and will respond right away.

Absolutely perfect beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better place to stay at the beach. The house is beautiful inside with cute beach decor and art, and the view from the porches and even from inside the living room is worth watching all day. There is no way to have more convenient beach access than this house has. The walkway attached to the house leads right down to the sand. The kitchen is well stocked with all the basic cooking needs and beyond. We were happy to have use of the croc pot, food processor, tea steeping mugs, and blender!

The beach right outside is very enjoyable. There's room to walk indefinitely along the beach in either direction, and the water is great for swimming.

What a week! Beach heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing! The view is priceless, the pictures don't do it justice. We're lucky enough to have traveled to some very beautiful places in the past, but this beach and house is on the top of our list. We stayed with our family and friends in early September 2017 and had a perfect week. The house is incredibly clean and well maintained. Kitchen is well stocked with utensils, stemware, and cookware. Having the Weber grill outside was perfect for barbecuing. The cute beach decor is inviting and relaxing. We enjoyed many evenings playing games and watching the beautiful sunsets on the top deck. The deck was amazing during both day and night. Renting linens from Me & Mom Cleaning was super easy. The abundance of beach chairs and toys was very convenient and added to our beach fun. Proximity of the house to downtown was great, walking distance to IGA was very helpful, but yet, the beach is quiet and serene. The owners Mike & Tammy were great to work with answering questions and providing suggestions. We highly recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in the Surf City area!! Thanks for a wonderful stay, we very much look forward to staying again next year!

Great beachfront location! Walk to stores, restaurants

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated comfortable home. I stayed here with a group of ladies with all different bed and socializing times. The house is set up perfectly for entertaining and families . There are 3 bedrooms on the 1st floor including large king en suite, except for one on the 2nd which is separated by a door from the kitchen living area. My friend calls it an upside down house as the living area is on the top floor. The elevator also stops at 3 floors the 1st floor, 3 bedrooms, 2nd Floor kitchen living area and the parking, grilling, and outdoor shower areas. Very convenient for large bags, groceries and any elderly or disabled guests. Otherwise there are a few flights of stairs to the 2nd floor which is the kitchen living area. There is outdoor deck seating on all three levels with overhanging decks or roof to shield the sun or rain. There was a pretty constant warm offshore breeze of 10 mph most days. It made it comfortable enough to enjoy outdoor seating and dining on very hot 80-90 degree days with high humidity, as well as sitting on the beach. There is an umbrella which stayed upright in spite of the wind and 6 chairs although we spent most of our time on the decks which have ample outdoor seating and tables, as it is a short walk down the stairs to the beach. The beach is soft sand with no rocks you can walk barefoot for miles but watch that wind, walking running or biking against the wind is a lot of work. I rented a beach bike and am an intermediate level road biker and it was a challenge to ride even a few miles against the wind. There is a ramp a few houses down to get a bike onto the beach if you are feeling in shape! The beach is private no lifeguards and there was always a light to moderate surf with waves to body or boogie board surf and there are quite a few boogy boards there as well. It is a busy beach with children, dogs, surf fishermen, be cautious of small children when the tide is high it comes to a few feet of the stairs to the house but I saw a lot of tide pools at low tide and great sand castle sand. There are a few sand toys in the outdoor shower area.

You can walk to the IGA but go to the Food Lion or Walmart grocery for a better selection. We purchased fresh seafood almost daily at the seafood shop with the huge crab on the sign the boats bring it in fresh! Then cooked on the great Weber grille.

Owner's Response: Hi Deb: Thanks for taking the time to write this nice review. Tammy and I are very happy that you and your friends enjoyed your stay at our beach house. We're especially glad that the umbrella stayed upright for you, it does get windy down there sometimes. Hope you enjoy the rest of your summer. Best Mike & Tammy
