About Darryl Nixon

Originally from Washington, DC, we have resided on the eastern shore of Maryland since 1982. We lived in the Havelock - New Bern area from 1978 to 1982. That is when we discovered the wonders of the Crystal Coast.

Darryl Nixon purchased this house in 2007

Why Darryl Nixon chose Coastal North Carolina

We bought this property because it has everything that we want in a beach house. It is conveniently located close to the Rt. 58 bridge, which allows easy access, especially when the beach traffic is heavy.

What makes this house unique

Every day, we see dolphins swim by. We walk on the beach...then go to any number of great restaurants to restore the lost calories.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your home is fabulous; my family really enjoyed it. We got some nice weather too. I know my daughter wants us to come back so this would be our choice. My wife's Thanksgivinng dinner turned out great; everything we needed was there.

Beautiful house on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house in a great location. It is well equipped for short or long stays and the kitchen has everything you need for preparing snacks and meals. The beds are comfortable, the layout allows for sleeping privacy but togetherness on the open main floor. There are beach toys and beach chairs so no need to pack any of those and lots of indoor games and puzzles for both kids and adults. The sunrise and sunset views over the water from the porch were our favorite part of staying here along with the ability to walk right out to the beach. The management company and owner are both responsive to any needs you may have while there. We hope to return again as this was a wonderful place for a three generation family gathering.

Perfect for Kids, well anyone, for that matter

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for this very family friendly waterfront home. A meticulously furnished home with all of the amenities, this home is ideal for all groups of people, including young children. My wife was blown away by the fact that there were multiple pack and plays with ample toys for young children. We just wish that we had known all of this before we arrived, or we wouldn't have brought our own.

The home has 5 great bedrooms, and could easily accommodate 2 separate families. The beach is right there, you can see both the sunrise and sunset this time of year. AMAZING! The grocery store and local restaurants are a less than 5 minute drive away. WE will definitely be staying here again, if we are able to find any open weeks. Understandably, this is a well kept secret. Thank you SO much .

Excellent ... Would be hard to top!

  • 5 of 5

This home did not disappoint! I rented it for a girls weekend & we were blown away at how nice & comfy it was!! We could not have asked for anything more! The kitchen was well stocked for cooking ... and the home has a nice flow that allows for easy conversations across rooms ... so you're never "stuck" in the kitchen by yourself. The view is amazing. Perfect for watching the sunset! I will definitely be coming back!!! :)

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This house worked out beautifully and the layout couldn't have been better. There were 8 of us, two families of 4, and everyone had their own space. Our daughter & their son were getting married! We all loved everything from the awesome views from the large deck, the living space with wet bar, the incredibly stocked kitchen and the simple but elegant décor. The house was so close to food and entertainment, both of which we took advantage of! We are already looking forward to booking again next year to celebrate the 1 year anniversary of our children! Thank you, Nixon Family, for a beautiful home!

Beautiful Place, Beautiful Views!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. It was in a great location that was close to stores and things to do, but also not in a highly crowded area of the beach. We were there for a wedding, so we wanted to be close to the venue, and this was only a mile or so a way. Very clean, nice furniture and all the appliances were nice. Rooms were good size and plenty of bathrooms for everyone we had, which was 8 total. Had it's own walkway to the beach, which was very short, so it was easy carrying all of our stuff back the house at the end of the day. Owners were very easy to work with too. We would definitely stay here again!
