Overview

Harkers Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (5 beds)

Enjoy a trip across the sound to experience uninhabited beaches with roaming wild ponies during the day and sink into adirondack chairs to view the sunset over Beaufort in the evening. Whether you're seeking solitude or a launching point for Outer Banks adventures, Harkers Island provides the benefits of a central location while being tucked away off the beaten path.

Beaufort is the destination of boaters, historians and memorable family getaways. Shopping, dining and leisurely strolls down the docks in this old Southern harbor town are only 20 minutes away by car or 10 minutes by boat. Atlantic Beach and Morehead City are 25 minutes away by car and boast attractions including a new aquarium, museums, shops and unique dining experiences.

The Harkers Island home has beautiful decor, new decks and a hammock underneath for taking a leisurely nap after swimming in the sound. Cook a fresh catch of seafood or shellfish in the beautifully tiled kitchen overlooking three sides of water off of the great room. Guests may bring their own boat for tie up in the boat slip on the pier. The open waters and constant breeze create ideal conditions for sailing. The island is small but has a few restaurants and is perfect for cycling and walking. Many local ferries are eager to take you across the Sound to Shackleford Banks or South Core Island. Guest may also drive to the Cedar Island ferry, one hour away, and take a beautiful, scenic two hour ferry ride to famous Ocracoke Island on the Outer Banks, where they may rent bikes and explore the Outer Banks for the day and be home for early bedtime that night!

The house has been personal property since it was purchased eight years ago, with very little rental hours due the owners leaving it open for family use. There are three bedrooms with two full sized baths and a wonderful outdoor shower. Enjoy a relaxing private vacation away from the crowds, but if you want more action, hop in your car and historic Beaufort is twenty minutes away!

AMAZING VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed in this Beautiful quaint cottage for the past several years and Absolutely LOVE IT!! The entire home is so inviting and the view of the water is spectacular. It was a wonderful location for my three small children. I can't remember the last time I had such a relaxing and unique vacation. Our family felt like we were on our own little island, however we were just a few minutes away from all the great restaurants and shops. Also, my husband loves to fish so I could not think of a better place for us to be. We look forward to this trip every year! Can not say enough how much we enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful!

We loved this house and Harkers Island! You cannot beat the view on the sound and location. You can see Cape Lookout from the deck! Close to Morehead City, Atlantic Beach, & Beaufort for day trips and fishing marinas (20-30 min away). Ferries go from the island over to Cape Lookout - make sure to plan a whole day for this! The house was beautiful and relaxing - we would definitely stay here again!

Our July vacation week was spent here and it was awesome. My grandsons had a blast swimming, fishing, catching hermit crabs from the pier and shore. We visited Cape Lookout, they got to see the wild ponies on the Banks and also went over to Beaufort and Fort Macon. \
I would suggest this Beach House for anyone who loves the water and loves just a very relaxing week at the beach!
Thank you so much for letting us enjoy your place!

Classic Harker's Island home

I stayed here 3 summers ago with my family and we loved the home. The house is tastefully decorated in a way that pays homage to the Harker's Island culture. The layout is perfect for being together with family. People can play games at the dining table and keep the cook company or everyone can lounge on the deck and porch while enjoying the view of Cape Lookout to the SE. The dock is a great home for your skiff and the sandy low tide beach is great for finding shells and the occasional piece of tumbled sea glass.
