For more than four decades, The Noble Beach House, a charming, oceanfront home in the secluded community of Pine Knoll Shores, has been a beloved gathering place for family and friends. Many memories have been made here, and we invite you to join in the fun! Just steps from your back door, the beach invites you to stroll, swim, fish and sunbathe. Enjoy morning coffee and evening sunsets watching dolphins, shorebirds and surfers from your private 'sittem.' Here barefoot is best, doing nothing is okay, and listening to the rhythm of the waves is the only way to fall asleep.
If you choose to venture farther than your comfy beach chair, you'll discover plenty of activities and attractions on Bogue Banks within a few minutes drive. If you head straight north 1/2 mile through Pine Knoll Shores, you will find yourself at the Country Club of the Crystal Coast, the only 18-hole course on the island. It is a semi-private golf and tennis club and is open to guests. Play golf in the morning and you automatically become a 'member for the day' with pool and dining privileges. On the eastern tip of the island (about 10 minutes drive) stands Fort Macon, a restored and newly-refurbished pre-Civil War fortress, the most-visited State park in North Carolina. Heading out the door to the west, you'll discover the Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores, located about one mile down the road in the Roosevelt Natural Area. As you continue to drive west, you will encounter the small fishing villages of Salter Path and Indian Beach and at the far western end of the island, the community of Emerald Isle.
The three-level Noble Beach House welcomes guests of all ages and abilities. It was designed to be a family home so is both kid- and pet-friendly, and the elevator provides easy access for older or handicapped persons. The large kitchen and eating area have fabulous ocean views as does the spacious family gathering room adjoining them, plenty of space for folks to cook or just hang out, and lots of places for little ones to play without being underfoot. There is a roomy oceanside deck and a private walkway to your very own 'sittem.'
Lower Level: Twin bedroom with full bath, small kitchen, large bonus room
Main Level: Large handicapped-accessible king bedroom and bath, laundry, second full bath also on this floor
Upper (third) Level: Large king bedroom, full bath, queen bedroom with vanity sink
There are many large windows, and all rooms on the two upper levels have ocean views. The third floor bedrooms have large balconies that overlook the beach.

Please allow us to introduce ourselves...We are the Noble Beach House Family. To date, there have been four generations of children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren to live in, vacation at and love this comfortable, oceanfront home, The Noble Beach House was not originally intended to be a rental property. It was built during the early development of Pine Knoll Shores by Dr. Keith and Alice Jean Noble and became their much-loved home for more than 30 years. Their children and grandchildren vacationed and played on this beach for many summers. Now our extended Noble family is widely scattered, some as far away as Alaska. The senior Nobles have passed away, but we can't bear to say goodbye to this cherished family treasure. We enjoy the house for special occasions, whenever some of us can gather, but during the summer months we rent to families much like our own. To insure that our renters have the best possible service, we have retained a local professional management company, Spectrum Rental Properties They have been managing the Noble Beach House for eight years, are real 'pros' and will take care of your every need responsively and efficiently.
The Noble family began vacationing in Pine Knoll Shores in the 1960's and built their dream house in 1970. Since then, change has come to many coastal communities, but Pine Knoll Shores, a bit off the beaten path, seems almost immune to hustle and bustle. It is truly a place where you can kick off your shoes, make yourselves at home and settle into the lazy, laid-back life. Even during the busy summer vacation season, you will have the beach practically to yourself. Yet shopping is only 10 minutes away, there are plenty of activities, local sights to see and excellent restaurants on the island or nearby in Morehead City and historic Beaufort.
First-time visitors to the Noble Beach House are enthralled by the views. Large, south-facing windows fill the rooms with light and invite the sky and ocean in....the Atlantic is a constant and visible presence, always changing, always fascinating. Another unique and much-enjoyed feature of the property ...our extra-large 'sittem' where a crowd can gather for beachside 'happy hour' or a reader can relax and soak up the rays. Because our island, Bogue Banks, lies east and west, we can view both sunrises and sunsets from the sittem. At certain times of the year, the sun even appears to rise out of and set into the ocean. And at night, you can see the Cape Lookout Light, flashing every 15 seconds to warn sailors away from 'the Graveyard of the Atlantic.' The stars are awesome too, and watching the meteor showers is amazing! Members of our family also enjoy the easy access to beach activities. They can safely jog and walk for miles ... no vehicles allowed. One of the of the Noble grandchildren, who is a surfer and kite-boarding instructor, explains that because of the 20-mile stretch of pristine beach and the constant southwest breezes, this area is ideal for ocean kite-boarding as well as excellent for flat-water kiting on the Intercoastal Waterway.
