Beautiful Ocean Front Duplex

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent two weeks at Sea Maiden East this fall. Everyone really enjoyed the up to date furnishings and decorations. There is adequate perking for about four cars although it can be difficult to get larger cars under the house and you will need to move cars to let others out at times. The bedrooms were all nicely furnished and included ceiling fans. If you have older family members please be aware there are fair amount of steps, both inside and out and there is only one bedroom on the first floor. The bathrooms are all newly updated and extremely nice. The kitchen is nicely sized and includes most everything you could want for beach cooking. The beach is very nice in this area of the island and is just a short distance from the ocean deck. The owners were very easy to work with and responded to all of our questions and made the process go very smoothly. I highly recommend this beach home for your vacation!

So very glad we decided on this home for our mid-Spring family gathering. We found it clean, bright, well-appointed, and close proximity to meet our needs. It was interesting watching the sub-tropical storm roll in and out from the upper deck and mid-deck. The kitchen has just about everything you'd need to prepare a decent meal at the beach. Really liked the immediate access to the beach; adequate parking for 4 cars; good directives on the refrigerator regarding trash pick-up and the like. With 5 good sized bedrooms, there was always a place to retreat to for quiet reading or computer work. And no waiting or fighting over the showers with all of the bathrooms. With the front and deck doors open, there was little or no need for any fans to be one--wonderful cross breezes. Atlantic Beach and Beaufort are up the road a piece and made for a great day trip to Shackleford Island for the most outstanding shells! We regretfully returned to our homes in KY, NY and just up the road in New Bern, at the end of a well-relaxed, enjoyable week. The owners were great to work with and we truly appreciate them sharing their home with us. We are already making plans for next Spring. We would totally recommend this home. Thank you!

Total Relaxation!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a great place to stay! It is conveniently located to groceries, gas, and activities for childrent/adults. I used it for a family vacation including my parents and my sister/husband. All of us rested well in the comfortable surroundings and enjoyed being lulled to sleep every night with the surf. The house is well insulated from sounds and the access to the beach is superb!

Thanks for a wonderful restful vacation!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a partial this spring and had a great time. The house is in great condition, was clean and well stocked. I love the decorating and the master bedroom is very roomy and bright with great views to the beach and a nice balcony. Great location overall with easy beach access.

Owners were wonderful and easy to work with and we received our deposit check back in a timely manner.

Would recommend this property!

Wonderful mini vacation

  • 5 of 5

We found the home even better than the listing described it. This place was very clean and had everything you could possibly need while on vacation. Kitchen was very well stocked, view was wonderful, beds were more comfortable than my own beds at home!! The owner was very quick to respond with answers to any questions I had. The best part was that you were only a few steps away from the ocean. I would surely stay here again!!
