Atlantic Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, House, 6 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Graley Cottage exudes all the charm of a classic beach cottage from the 50’s but has been renovated and beautifully furnished to include all the modern conveniences. Graley Cottage is an oceanfront house (just a short walk from the deck over the gentle dunes to the beach and surf) in a quiet family neighborhood on a cul-de-sac on Club Colony Drive in Atlantic Beach. It features 6 bedrooms (including two separate master suites), 5 & ½ baths, 2 separate family/tv areas (great for when the kids want to watch their own movies), a spacious oceanfront family room and adjoining spacious dining room for your family gatherings, and a fabulous deck for enjoying the dunes and ocean views.

The cottage is equipped with high speed internet (Road Runner), wireless internet, unlimited telephone calls within the US and Canada, two DVD players, Cable TV service, a 42 inch flat screen HD TV in the first floor family room and a 32 inch flat screen TV in the upstairs family room and a small flat screen tv on the kitchen bar that is perfect for entertaining kids having their breakfast, etc. There is ample outdoor parking for up to 6 cars plus 1 car in garage.

The first floor exterior features a large covered beach side porch and sun deck with dining table, dining chairs and rocking chairs perfect for enjoying that first cup of coffee in the morning, for watching boats and dolphins go by, for relaxing sunset dinners or late night cocktails. While you are relaxing on the deck, the kids can play in the swing or hammock below. The first floor exterior also features a covered street side porch perfect for just hanging out in the rocking chairs. Both beach side and street side porches are connected by a lovely wraparound deck.

The interior first floor consists of the spacious family room and master bedroom (with a Queen bed and ensuite bath with tub & shower) both overlooking the beach, two additional bedrooms (each with a Queen bed) that share a full bath with walk-in shower, another smaller study/bedroom with a twin bed and a nearby full bath with tub & shower, a beautiful fully-equipped kitchen with custom made cabinetry and granite counter tops which opens to a wonderful dining room.

The second floor features a second master bedroom with a queen bed, ensuite bath with walk-in shower, and walk-in closet, a second bedroom with two double beds (and a fold out twin & twin air mattress in the closet) and a nearby full bath with a tub & shower, and a second family room perfect for kids to hang out and play or watch tv. This room is stocked with toys, books, games and DVD’s to entertain the kids.

The street level features a utility room with washer/dryer,a half bath, a second refrigerator/freezer, a gas grill, a large storage area with beach toys, beach chairs, umbrellas, a kayak, a long board, boogie boards, fishing rods and related beach gear, and two indoor showers and one outside shower (good for post beach showers).

In short, Graley Cottage is the perfect place for family fun where you can enjoy all the ocean has to offer from just a shells throw from the surf. You will want to return every year.

About Stephanie Kuykendall

Graley Cottage has been owned by the same family since it was purchased in the 1950’s by our grandparents, Staley and Grace Cook of Burlington, NC (hence the name “Graley”). It was lovingly renovated and expanded by our Mom, Nancy Cook Moore, also of Burlington, NC in 2006. Mom left it to her children to enjoy and preserve for generations to come. We consider it a little bit of heaven on earth and hope you will too!

Stephanie Kuykendall purchased this cottage in 1956

What makes this cottage unique

Four generations of our family have enjoyed vacations at Graley Cottage. Whether it is fishing, shell hunting, surfing, exploring Fort Macon, jogging on the beach, reading in the hammock, or hanging out on the sun deck with family and friends, we think there is no place like Graley Cottage.

Charm, charm, charm and oceanfront too!

  • 5 of 5
My 3 sisters and I, plus our husbands (ages 58-77) stayed in Graley Cottage for a long weekend get-together. We didn't know what to expect but upon entering the front door we knew we were going to love this place! The 70+ year olds used the downstairs bedrooms (3 with queen size beds) and the 50+ year olds used the upstairs bedrooms (1 with queen bed & private bath plus another bedroom with 2 doubles & full bath outside sitting area). It was so nice that everyone had their own bedroom (without bunk beds! - not good for "old" people) and their own bathroom (very important!!). The cottage has lovely antiques, fabulous art, and is beautifully decorated. Total charm!! We had plenty of room to spread out with 2 sitting areas with TVs (one up and one down - the men were always watching some ballgame). We will definitely return!

This was our second stay at Graley cottage, and it lived up to all expectations. Clean, beautiful location, all the amenities one could ask for, and well managed. We feel very lucky to have found the great property,and hope to continue our annual retreat to this fantastic property.

We had a wonderful time!
A very short walk around the dunes to the beach. And for some of our family a wonderful morning stroll down the beach while those that didn't want to walk quite as far would stop under the pier and zen-out until we returned.
The rooms were all very cozy and comfortable. Just like home. The kitchen was great and the Den was a great hangout for the entire family whether listening to the stereo or watching baseball. Plenty of books to read or games to play.
We ate breakfast on the back deck, which is also large enough to play corn-hole.
We would definitely stay here again if we can get the entire family together.

Perfect Cottage for our Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
The Graley Cottage was the perfect base for our family gathering. The interior of the cottage is beautifully furnished and appointed--well-suited for our family of adult children, and the spacious outdoor porch and deck allowed us to enjoy the ocean breezes in sun or shade. (The cottage boasts a wonderful view!) With seafood markets nearby and a well-equipped kitchen, it was a pleasure to prepare and serve delicious meals.
Our family thoroughly enjoyed biking to nearby Fort Macon. The cottage is close enough to shops and restaurants in Atlantic Beach and Morehead City for easy access but removed from the crowds and congestion. Great location!!!
The owner was always accessible for questions.
We highly recommend the Graley Cottage!

Excellent Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5
The Cottage was very nice and in a great location. It is truly an upscale beach front home with all the amenities promissed. The owner was very courteous and easy to communicate with. The garage was perfect for securing our bikes. The beds were very comfortable and enjoying morning coffee on the back porch was priceless. Our one dinner out was at Amos Mosquitos. The restaurant is just down the street and it was stupendous.

Wonderful Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5
This is our 2nd year, and we have already re-booked for our 3rd year. The Graley cottage is very clean, spacious and very close to beach. The kitchen was well equipped, there are a lot of toys, DVDs, and beach items. The cottage has everything for a fun family vacation!
