About Ashley Tointon

My brother David and I were willed our grandparents home when our father passed away in 1996. We rent it selectively so we can keep the place in the family.

Ashley Tointon purchased this house in 1942

Why Ashley Tointon chose Coastal North Carolina

This property was home to our great grandparents, our grandparents and is where our father grew up. We spent a lot of time there and continue to have wonderful memories there with our own families.

What makes this house unique

Much of the furnishings are original pieces and photos of the Pugh family are scattered in the home. It is a special place and we welcome you to make your own memories there.

Christmas in Oriental

  • 5 of 5

We spent Thanksgiving at the house, and were not expecting to return so soon, but my mother experienced a major health crisis a week before Christmas, so we all felt the need to come to help her, and the house seemed perfect for holding many of us, close to my parent's home. Ashley responded quickly and positively to our emergency need, and we felt so comforted, being in the familiar house again. It is an ideal location for walking and biking everywhere in town, and the morning sunrise and evening sunsets helped us get through a difficult time. The house is just as it appears in the photos; warm, comfy, relaxed. Great beds!

Great location, charming house. Just what we wanted.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the house. Perfect location for our stay. Lots of nice amenities. The only thing missing is a dishwasher, but that's a minor quibble.

Very cute and comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a few days for a wedding and chose this house. It was a perfect place to stay and loved the location. We didn't spend much time in the house as we were busy with wedding stuff, but all of our free time was spent on the porch or riding the bikes. Having the bikes were a big reason we picked this house over the others. It is a very friendly town and wish we could have spent a few more days there. The owners are quick to reply to any questions or concerns. Thanks for sharing and hope we can come back some time to see more of the area.

Would highly recommend this house.

Lovely and Comfortable Family Home

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was nothing but positive with the Pugh House. We have our own Log Cabin listed on VRBO ( Listing #487247) and so have significant experience also hosting guests. We found Ashley to be responsive, and very accommodating, and the house was perfect for our needs. This was part of our Summer vacation, and my two adult children were in sailing school there in Oriental prior to us taking a charter boat to the Cape, so we needed a place to stay in Oriental for the first few days of our trip. The Pugh house more than met our need, with comfortable beds and linens and the AC was very appreciated the week we were there. Ashley describes this property as a family home that they share with others. From the time we set foot on the front walk, I felt the nostalgia for a different time in America when her grandparents lived at this address. for me it provided a unique warmth and sense of home you won't experience at other properties. A vary nice touch, which other guests have also mentioned, are the bikes that are available. Peddling to the bean and other locations enhanced our experience, and brought back our own small town memories.

Our thanks to Ashley and her brother for sharing their home with us,

Dave, Becky, Cam & Abby

Such a charming, inviting home in the ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful. Our stay was more than comfortable and the home was well equipped, even with bikes to ride to dinner! We loved the swings, screened porch & grill also. The beds were amazingly comfortable & the house is decorated so tastefully you truly feel at home! We can't wait to return back for a little escape :)
