Why Martha Troxler chose Central Coast

We chose this property because we fell in love with Harkers Island. We enjoy the quiet island lifestyle with beautiful beaches and few crowds. Harkers Island offers great fishing, kayaking, and bird watching. Our home is located on a quiet, dead end street with water views of West Bay. The screened in porch is a great spot to have a morning cup of coffee while enjoying the sunshine.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Great location! We loved our stay! The adults hung out on the awesome screened in porch and the kids much appreciated the tv and wifi. I loved the local beach access and the kids enjoyed seeing the drawbridge open and close. We had a bit of car trouble while we were on the island and Martha was very responsive to anything that we needed. We'll definitely be back!

Awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, fully stocked and great porch! Would highly recommend this place to stay on Harkers Island. Our only complaint was the very uncomfortable beds and couch. Maybe it's just cause we're old! Otherwise it was awesome!

Owner's Response: The mattresses are less than three years old and are of good quality. We have had no other complaints. We are planning to replace the couch with a fold out sofa by the end of 2017 as an improvement to the house.

Harkers Island Rental

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Harkers Island! Martha was so easy to communicate with and she even left us 4 bikes to use while we were there, plus plenty of great suggestions of things to do with our family! We took the ferry to Cape Lookout, swam at and toured Fort Macon, ate dinner and visited the Maritime Museum in Beaufort and relaxed at the house after getting a little sun burned. The house was perfect for our family of six! We had comfy beds, plenty of space and even great books, boardgames and movies for when we needed a bit of downtime. We would certainly come back again to stay!
