About Jennifer Collins

I grew up going to this beach. We love this complex because it is affordable oceanfront and everything you want or need is close and convenient! There are always plenty of things to do and see in the area, even if it rains.

Jennifer Collins purchased this condo in 1998

Why Jennifer Collins chose Pine Knoll Shores

We chose to buy at this complex due to the amount of beachfront (600 feet) and green space, privacy, family-friendliness, and affordability of the LOCATION, LOCATION!. This property has one of the very few pools with a deep end and we recently converted to a salt system, so the water doesn't burn your eyes so your skin smells and feels wonderful and your suits don't fade. There is an on-site coin laundry room which is also very convenient. The walk to the beach is about 75 steps!

What makes this condo unique

This property has renters that come back year after year once they have found out about it! Guests are paying less than a hotel costs but have the convenience of a full kitchen (not all units here do) so they can have breakfast in their pj's if they want to and save a ton of money because they don't have to eat out every meal. Many of the owners and renters are second-generation who grew up coming to this complex and now bring their children. Everyone is pretty friendly. We have a wonderful on-site manager. The best cooking charcoal grills I have ever used are brick and mortar and located beside the pool and they get pretty busy during the summer. The local restaurants are fabulous, but if you are on a budget, you can cook the best meal ever on the grills in the ocean breeze beside the pool and then walk 4 steps to the picnic table and sit down and eat. There are bathrooms located beside the pools. The gazebo (there are two) is large and is a perfect place to go sit and enjoy your morning cup of coffee or an evening cocktail or read a book. We have an almost football field size green grass space between the buildings and the dunes and around the pool which is wonderful for active kids as it is fenced and a safe place to play. If you don't see the date you want available on my calendar, send me an email anyway because I may be able to hook you up with a different unit at this same complex.

Awesome Place

  • 5 of 5
This was our very first vacation in North Carolina and it was wonderful. So glad we picked this rental and location. I can't get over how clean the water and beaches are here. It was never crowded and everyone was so nice we talked too. The manager was so kind and let us talk his ear off about how great everything around us was and about our day. We spent time on the beach, went fishing, and went sightseeing. Fort Macon and Cape Lookout are amazing places to visit. One of our favorite things to do was collect shells. Thank you so much Jennifer for sharing your place with us. It is wonderful and perfect for two. Paradise.

Owner's Response: This is such a great location to do as much or as little as you want. Walk less than 100 steps to the beach or explore all the awesome things to see and do close by. There is something for everyone: Fishing, swimming, kayaking, para-sailing, NC Aquarium, Fort Macon State Park, Cape Lookout National Seashore with the Lighthouse & herds of wild "Banker Ponies" that are descendants of Spanish Mustangs that swam ashore from shipwrecks in the late 1500's, Beaufort Maritime Museum featuring exhibits from Blackbeard's Queen Anne's Revenge, and too much more to list here... you may have to come again several times to see and do it all... or, you could just unload your car, groceries and some good beach-read books 6 steps into the front door (NO STAIRS!) and never leave the property and be pretty happy too!

Owner's Response: It's not just the big things that count like location, convenience, cleanliness, privacy, comfort, amenities and things to do; the little things can make all the difference in the world! I work very hard to be responsive to individual guest needs whether it be facilitating a short notice rental, providing guest specific information or references for local services, or putting sliders on the recliner legs so it can be moved around easily to make room for a toddler guest's PackNPlay. My personal experience over 15 years staying in this unit myself as a single person, a married person, and a family with children birth to teen has taught me what every guest needs in this unit to accommodate and enjoy their stay. From cushions to sit on for the gazebo and picnic tables, beach chairs and a beach umbrella to cooking utensils and cutlery, you will find practically every LITTLE THING you need here for a very enjoyable vacation or getaway : )

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
The unit had everything needed for a great getaway at the beach. It was neat, clean, orderly and well stocked, just as promised. Jennifer was a joy to rent from. And most importantly the uncrowded beach was steps away. Will be returning!

Owner's Response: Thank you! I strive to provide my guests with my own expectations of clean, comfortable, and affordable and the little things I do that others don't really make a big difference in the overall experience. I also very much appreciate awesome guests who take the same care with my property that they take with their own as it keeps it affordable for everyone. It is very rewarding and gives me much joy to share this little jewel that I kept to myself for 15 years and to relive that same joy through others who have now found it and return year after year.

A real gem!

Returned for an early summer escape. Love the new keyless entry/lock system. Beach was perfect, quiet and relaxing. We enjoy the wide bike lanes and great dining choices. Apartment is comfy, clean and well equipped. Will be returning. Thanks, Jenn.

Nice place

It was a nice little cozy place. Was clean and orderly. Would have been better had the weather been nicer. We hope to come back so that we will be able to enjoy the fact that the place sits so close to the beach!

Notes:
I do things A LOT differently, things you won't find with any other rental. All provided bed linens, pillow & mattress protectors are clean and used only by you. All bathroom surfaces are sanitized as are all doorknobs, handles, & switches. HVAC filters are cleaned weekly. Dish Detergent, liquid hand soap, coffee filters, trash bags, salt & pepper and more are provided. Even with providing your own paper products, you'll find a full roll of tissue in the bathroom. There's outdoor cushions for the gazebo, nets, shovels, boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrella, Bocci Balls, trays for transporting a cookout, and long-handled utensils for grilling. IF you don't find an item you need, please let me know! Also, I provide TWO keys because I have overheard way too many seriously upset arguments over 'WHO has the key and where are they?' over 15 years. Gee, a $1 key would have fixed that. I only ask that you leave everything they way you found it & where you found it & how you found it : )
