We just completed our stay, and thoroughly enjoyed it! When we entered the main living room and saw the spacious vaulted ceiling, dining room, bar, and kitchen, we knew we were at home. This property excels in many areas that we take for granted at home, but sometimes have issues with when we rent a beach house.
- Ample space. CHECK. : We didn't have to get creative on where to hide our luggage and stuff. There was a walk-in closet in the master, and every room had space for stuff and people.
- Pest control. CHECK: Thank goodness we didn't have pests like ants and roaches to deal with in this property! Only humans here!
- A/C. Check: The A/C worked well! We like it cool, but we actually got to say "It's too cold in here. Can someone turn off the A/C?" A first for a beach vacation.
- Electronics. CHECK: Each room had a flat screen TV. The big family room had a stereo with ceiling mounted speakers. And the wi-fi worked and was acceptably fast enough even for 6 kids and 6 adults.
- Amenities. CHECK. Because this property is part of a larger community, there are several pools and tennis courts nearby within walking distance.
- Beach sound and view. CHECK. Even though this house sits back in between two others, you can see and hear the beach from the deck. Also the canopy of shrubs and trees under which the winding deck sidewalk meanders to get to the ocean provides for a nice pleasant walk. Almost like a little rain forest. While we normally prefer to walk directly from deck to sand, this was OK because the little walk to the beach was done well, and was mostly shaded by the foliage.
- Location. CHECK. Just minutes from A Food Lion, Town of Atlantic Beach, Morehead City, and Beaufort.
- The Details. CHECK: Every time we thought "Wouldn't it be nice if..." and there it was. Beach chairs. A new deck near the beach. A water hose on the walkway to the beach. A gas grill. Foosball. A card table. Games. Books. Washer/dryer. Three refrigerators. Even a little Keurig in one of the master bedrooms. And that's not all: This place has an elevator, which is essential for moving in and out.
I could go on, but they only allow me so many characters in this review. We will be back!!
