Cottages at Bay Ridge House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)

Name of House: 'Time Out'.

Newer construction in unique sound-side community. Over 3000 heated square feet, 5 Bedrooms, 4 1/2 Baths. Exquisite pool behind house. Homeowners association owns its own private island in the sound with a covered pavilion (great for catching that slot sized red-fish, eating lunch, watching the boats go by, watching dolphins feed, or catching your limit of crabs. It also serves as a great place to launch your kayak).

BACK AGAIN FOR 2015...... Neighborhood Trolley....this trolley will be available to transport your entire group to the Aquarium and Beaches from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

We also provide private private transportation year around via a street legal Electric Vehicle!!!! You can use our private car to go any where in Atlantic Beach during this time where the speed limit is 35mph or less. We are the only home offering this in Atlantic Beach.

That's right..if you rent our home you have access to our neighborhood trolley and you also have your very own private street legal electric vehicle to use while you are there. This makes going to the beach, restaurants, the aquarium, grocery store and other shops in Atlantic Beach a pleasure instead of a chore.

While the trolley will be on a set schedule, you can use our Street legal electric vehicle to go wherever you want to go during you stay!

This is a non-smoking house and there are also no pets allowed.

The house is fully-equipped and stocked with high end furnishings including Kingsdown bedding in all bedrooms, Lloyd and Flanders Wicker in great room, Smart Wired house with high speed (Road Runner) internet in just about every room,as well as wireless internet, a 40 inch LCD in great room, elevator, outside shower, and the list goes on and on.

Master bedroom has private kitchenette with balcony that overlooks the pool and has great views of the sound. A great place to enjoy that first cup of coffee in the morning or that last cocktail in the evening. The pool is directly behind house. Watch the kids from the deck while grilling your fresh catch. The house has sound views and limited ocean views.

We would love to have you as our guests.

About Craig Turner

My Wife and I met the first day of college in the fall of 1991. We have now known each other for half of our lives and have been married for over a decade. While not NC natives (we were both born and raised in Central Pennsylvania), we have lived here now for over 15 years and happily call it home. We are blessed to have two wonderful children who truly make life even more wonderful for us each day.

Craig Turner purchased this house in 2007

Why Craig Turner chose Atlantic Beach

My Wife and I are fell in love with the Crystal Coast of NC the first time we visited there about a decade ago. From pristine beaches to wild horses; fine restaurants to world class fishing... what is there not to love? The waters around the area with all of the channels and creeks are so inviting and the activities both on and off of the water are endless. Every time our family visits we just fall more in love with the area and can't wait to come back. We are both so happy to be able to share this with our children and friends and look forward to sharing it with you and your family.

What makes this house unique

Our property's location is wonderful. We are a sound front community with great access to fishing, crabbing, kayaking and dolphin watching. There are many wonderful beaches close by and all major amenities are within walking distance or no more than a short drive. We enjoy nice views of the sound and have a direct view to the pool.

I think once you experience 'Timeout' you will understand why we just love it so very much.

Another great family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you once again for a wonder family vacation! Your home is always, clean, well maintained and ready for our family to come together and share stories, love, laughter & great food. At one time we had 14 people (one was 3) staying in your lovely home. There were many trips to the beach for some to just "chill". Trips to the beach to surf fish and one trip to the Pier at Newport River for some fishing with brothers. Some of us took a half day fishing trip on the Lady Faye - 31 Spanish Mackerel, 2 King Mackerel and one shark - dinner was yummy that night, shark bites & fish tacos. Let's not forget the site seeing and shopping in Beaufort. I could go on an on but I won't - LOL. Thank you again and we look forward to coming back next year.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We first stayed in your lovely home in 2013. Family came from Beaufort, NC, Bristol, VA, Johnson City TN and Yuba City CA., totaling 14 family members. We had such a great time that we came back for another visit. This time there were only 9 - never the less, we still had an amazing time. You home has just about everything you need for a wonderful vacation and family time. We did lots of fishing in the sound as well as the surf and the pier at Newport River. I'm counting the number of days until our next visit next year! Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your home. Dr. & Mrs. Haught; Mr & Mrs Jake Haught & family; Mr & Mrs Bradley Bell & Mr & Mrs John English.

Anniversary for Grandma and Grandpa

  • 5 of 5

We were happily pleased when we arrived at your beautiful home. It was our family's celebration of my husband and my 50th anniversary and we brought our kids and grand

kids from Minneapolis and a son from Amsterdam for a week of fun. There were 13 of us and the house accommodated us very well. We loved the pool and area, the electric car the large kitchen and accessibility to the beach which the teens loved. Thanks again. Pat and Don

Awesome Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

From the time of arrival we were impressed by the location and the appearance of the house. It was just beautiful. Very clean and well kept with a kitchen that had everything. We had 9 adults and 7 kids on this trip so there was never a dull moment from the trolley ride to the aquarium and the next day Ft. Macon. We all had a great time. The elevator was a plus with my elderly mother. The place is incredible!!! We will be sure and book again next year.
