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.

Comfortable Cottage

  • 4 of 5

This was a working weekend trip for my husband and myself so we were only at the cottage at night and for about an hour each morning but it certainly met our needs. As others have remarked it was an extremely clean cottage. I forgot my slippers and walked barefoot on the floors and did not feel even a grain of sand or dirt on my feet!! The cottage has been updated. Spacious, modern bathrooms and great water pressure which was greatly appreciated at the end of the day! Kitchen has also been updated...modern appliances and well stocked with what you would need if you decided to cook. The neighborhood was extremely quiet and you had a nice view of the water from the kitchen table or the screened in porch. We appreciated the WIFI connection. Owners respond quickly and wanted to make sure your needs were met. Would stay here again.

Wonderful Cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing cottage and location! Exactly as presented on VRBO. We only stayed two nights but could have spent a week enjoying this peaceful setting on Harker's Island. Well maintained and great location. We will be back again! Wonderful home for a small family or group. Home was clean and modern and we had plenty of parking for our 22' boat as well! Nice local restaurants on the island and very convenient to boat ramp or Cape Lookout Ferries.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Perfect fall fishing trip. The house is very close to the public boating access that we used daily and only about 30 min. from the access in Beaufort. I felt safe with my boat outside at night in the quiet neighborhood off of the main road. The house is clean and suited our needs perfectly. I will be staying again.

Perfect Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

I could not recommend this property more for a quiet getaway!! The property sits at the end of a quiet road with beautiful views of Westmouth Bay from the screened in porch. We enjoyed the bikes provided by the owners, the island for it's beautiful nature, and even enjoyed watching college football at the house! Very versatile property and I plan to return this year!

This cottage on Harkers Island is perfect for a family get-away! We loved the comfort and cleanliness of the house. Owners were great to work with, no hassles at all! My husband and I stayed a long weekend with two of our children and this place was exactly what we were looking for.
