Definitely loved the ocean view, being right on the ocean and so close to Fort Macons hiking trail. So beautiful.
Very small kitchen...and I love to cook...I stayed for 9 weeks (Nov-Dec), so i would of appreciated a little upgrade to that kitchen. But, it would be perfect if you are on vacation for a short time. There is a dollar tree and grocery store less than 5 min drive away so you get all your needs.
One weird thing I noted was the beds, couch, toilets and bathroom sinks are all very low. Also no windows in the bedrooms, I really like to fall asleep with windows open and to the sound of the ocean. I did purchase a mattress topper for the bed since I was staying a longer stay.
The complex has a lot of out door actives (tennis, basketball court, hot tub, mini golf....) so I see families really enjoying that. Lots of bars and restaurants close by (driving) even in the off season. And the people around the area are very friendly and the area has so many places to explore.
This was our 3rd stay at Bountiful By The Sea. This home has everything you need for a relaxing getaway. Words can not express the views, they are simply breathtaking. We enjoyed our breakfast each morning from the beautiful sun porch overlooking the North River.
The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to cook our own meals. We so enjoyed catching our fish from the dock and eating them the same day! The fishing was great and more than we could have hoped for! We caught flounder, red drum, black drum and lots of speckled trout. We were also able to take the boat out just a short trip from the house to catch lots of shrimp. Another perk is the stream that runs beside the house. My husband used this to set minnow traps to catch our bait. This is very convenient and we never ran out of bait to fish with.
The sunsets at this home are absolutely breathtaking! We were blessed each night to watch God in all his glory paint the sky with the most gorgeous sunsets we have ever seen. If you are searching for a place to relax and get away from it all, this is it.
Mr. Russ and Mrs Brenda are awesome hosts and make you feel right at home. They do a great job making sure you have everything you need to enjoy your stay and have great suggestions for area restaurants and things to do.
The highlight of our trip was seeing two Bald Eagles flying over the property. I can not explain what this did for my soul. I lost my mother 4 years ago and she always loved Bountiful By The Sea. Her favorite scripture was Isaiah 40:31... But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. I have never felt more at peace than here at this home. Thank you Mr. Russ and Mrs Brenda for all of your hospitality! We will be back soon!
