We live in Virginia Beach, Va. We are home remodelers and keep very busy in this industry. We love the water and the serenity of nature. Our home overlooks a beautiful reservoir where wildlife abounds. Our retirement dream was to find a home like ours here in Virginia but smaller and on the inter-coastal waterway.

Nora Crouch purchased this house in 2012

My husband and I discovered Holiday Island while on a trip in 2012. We fell in love with the view from the home and its location midway between two wonderful towns---Edenton and Elizabeth City. We were able to purchase the house and begin the process of creating our retirement paradise. Along the way, our friends have been so interested in our project; they asked if they could rent it out for a weekend or week. We decided to make it available year round. Holiday Island is not a 'touristy destination'. It is just a wonderful area to relax, take a walk or just sip coffee (or wine). A 65 foot long pier has been built with a 16x24 platform at the end, We are adding an additional 100 feet of pier this year providing even more dazzling views, fishing and a wonderful time on the largest freshwater sound in the country at 55 miles long. We just recently acquired the lot right next door to the house which now provides an additional 81 feet of soundfront privacy. The pier is located inside of a cove. The water is 8-24 inches deep at the bulkhead and a couple of inches deeper at the end of the pier. At the edge of the cove the water is 5 feet deep, once outside of the cove it goes to 15-20 feet deep. The bottom of the cove is sandy with some sea grass. It is a great place to launch kayaks that are provided, or let the children play. The small beach is great for the children to build sand castles and they can hunt for treasures in the water. The newly acquired adjacent lot has added an 85 foot beach, horse shoe pits and a second pergola to relax under while adding a place for yard games and enjoyment.

Once you leave the island, the town of Hertford about 15 minutes away, which was chartered in 1758 making it the seventh oldest town on North Carolina. It is a lovely historic town with a pharmacy and a soda fountain counter. There is an art gallery and delightful lunch spots right on the main street.

The Albemarle Plantation is next door to Holiday Island. The public is welcome to dine in their fabulous clubhouse and grill. The food is super and we always feel welcome there! More information about restaurants and activities are available in the welcome package.

In this area, history abounds with Edenton established in November 6, 1712 and Elizabeth City in 1793. The Outer Banks, Nags Head, Kill Devil Hills and many other towns are an hour to an hour and half away. You can take a day trip to visit the ocean and avoid the traffic inconvenience and high cost of staying there. Of course, the fishing is great here and boating makes the area even more enjoyable. There are four kayaks on the property. You can rent additional boats from Hertford or order one from Nags Head to be delivered to the marina. You can bring your own boat and launch fro the boat ramp on the island. The pier has approximately 20 inch water level in the summer and you can tie up your boat or PWC there.

Relaxing retreat

  • 4 of 5
We very much enjoyed our time at this great vacation house. It is in a prime location for being away from it all. The back yard, private beach and seclusion on the cove are ideal. There are some neighbors but they were certainly not a bother. What a grand view one has from inside the home looking out the back doors and through the sun room windows. Access to the kayaks and bicycles made it more enjoyable as well. The owners have done a great job decorating the home. I would recommend this vacation house to anyone looking for a place for some down time.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay! We love that view too. We're adding 100 ft to the pier soon and we just dropped of a paddle boat to add to the kayak fleet!

Amazing! Amazing! Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
Wow! We really enjoyed this home. The location was perfect for our needs and Mother Nature helped with the perfect weather. The home itself was very clean, something that is usually a toss up, professionally decorated and was equipped with everything one could possibly need. We loved the man made beach and the kyaks were great to relax in around the sound. Highly recommend!

Just Wonderful - So Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful experience here at Waters Edge. The place is very clean, updated, and has all the amenities of home. I highly recommend it, but also want to keep this true gem a secret so it will be available to us when we need it! We played golf, watched sunrises and sunsets, went boating and caught lots of fish, went to the Outer Banks one day, Edenton, Hertford, all the wonderful surrounding towns where the people are so friendly. Thanks for making our stay so nice - we'll be back!

Owner's Response: We are very happy that you chose Edgewater to stay at. We really enjoyed your nice note and you will always be welcome to come back. We will continue to work on live entertainment for you. We are very happy to hear about the fishing since I myself hope to have a chance to go later this year. Once again thank you very much for choosing our place to stay.

Hands down our best short family vacation ever! This home is perfect in every detail. From the web site I knew this place would be nice but when we arrived we soon realized it was a pure GEM! We have 5 children ages 17 to 4 and they all had a GREAT time here. The look on our 7yr olds face when she walked in the door to this lovely home was priceless- love at first sight...and that was before she saw the slot machine in the Pirates Den ;) My 15yr is in love with the sea/beach décor. The Sound is so beautiful, my husband & I spent a lot of time out on the dock taking the beauty of it all in. Our older 2 had lots of hours of fun in the kayaks and all had fun swimming. We saw Bald Eagles on several occasions - that was WAY cool. All the kids enjoyed catching crabs and letting them go. BBQ is great and we put it to use a lot on our stay. The owners have such a flair for details and we are so thankful that we were able to stay and are looking forward to coming back as soon as we can!

Edgewater

  • 5 of 5
Edgewater is a beautiful setting, we enjoyed the view of the sound and great breeze from our Adirondack chairs, with no biting bugs. Having use of the kayaks was great. The interior of the home was just as described, fresh, clean, comfortable and well equipped. Having linens and incedentials provided was a nice touch. Restaurants were a bit limited, but we had a great meal for brunch at the Albermarle Plantation restaurant and dinner at the Beautiful Moon near by. Owners were polite and helpful in providing detailed information.

Such a sweet place

  • 5 of 5
My family had a wonderful time here. The home is beautiful and spacious. The kitchen was outfitted nicely and we had various tools at our disposal (we like to cook!), so refreshingly different from most homes we've rented. The owners were also responsive prior to arrival and during our stay.

The view was awesome. My mother-in-law loved going on to the dock to watch the ospreys feeding their young ones in the nest.

During our stay, the weather was stormy most days, so our little kids went a little stir crazy. We kept them occupied though with a drive out to the aquarium in Manteo one day and spent the afternoon in Edenton on another. I think this place is perfect if you're looking for a quiet getaway and have time to laze about. If you need a ton of kid-friendly things to do, this may not be the best fit for you. Or, you can just plan out kids' activities ahead of time (which we didn't think to do because we figured we'd be playing in the sound most of the time). We had a fun time all around though.

Owner's Response: Alan and I are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We will stock the game cabinet with more diversions for the young ones in case of inclement weather! We appreciate the immaculate condition that you left the home in when we came to clean and change linens!
Next year there will be a new 70 ft beach, bicycles, tennis racquets and outside games. We hope you will return to Edgewater!
