About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

For more than four decades, The Noble Beach House, a charming, oceanfront home in the secluded community of Pine Knoll Shores, has been a beloved gathering place for family and friends. Many memories have been made here, and we invite you to join in the fun! Just steps from your back door, the beach invites you to stroll, swim, fish and sunbathe. Enjoy morning coffee and evening sunsets watching dolphins, shorebirds and surfers from your private 'sittem.' Here barefoot is best, doing nothing is okay, and listening to the rhythm of the waves is the only way to fall asleep.

If you choose to venture farther than your comfy beach chair, you'll discover plenty of activities and attractions on Bogue Banks within a few minutes drive. If you head straight north 1/2 mile through Pine Knoll Shores, you will find yourself at the Country Club of the Crystal Coast, the only 18-hole course on the island. It is a semi-private golf and tennis club and is open to guests. Play golf in the morning and you automatically become a 'member for the day' with pool and dining privileges. On the eastern tip of the island (about 10 minutes drive) stands Fort Macon, a restored and newly-refurbished pre-Civil War fortress, the most-visited State park in North Carolina. Heading out the door to the west, you'll discover the Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores, located about one mile down the road in the Roosevelt Natural Area. As you continue to drive west, you will encounter the small fishing villages of Salter Path and Indian Beach and at the far western end of the island, the community of Emerald Isle.

The three-level Noble Beach House welcomes guests of all ages and abilities. It was designed to be a family home so is both kid- and pet-friendly, and the elevator provides easy access for older or handicapped persons. The large kitchen and eating area have fabulous ocean views as does the spacious family gathering room adjoining them, plenty of space for folks to cook or just hang out, and lots of places for little ones to play without being underfoot. There is a roomy oceanside deck and a private walkway to your very own 'sittem.'

Lower Level: Twin bedroom with full bath, small kitchen, large bonus room

Main Level: Large handicapped-accessible king bedroom and bath, laundry, second full bath also on this floor

Upper (third) Level: Large king bedroom, full bath, queen bedroom with vanity sink

There are many large windows, and all rooms on the two upper levels have ocean views. The third floor bedrooms have large balconies that overlook the beach.

About The Owner

Please allow us to introduce ourselves...We are the Noble Beach House Family. To date, there have been four generations of children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren to live in, vacation at and love this comfortable, oceanfront home, The Noble Beach House was not originally intended to be a rental property. It was built during the early development of Pine Knoll Shores by Dr. Keith and Alice Jean Noble and became their much-loved home for more than 35 years. Their children and grandchildren vacationed and played on this beach for many summers. Now our extended Noble family is widely scattered, some as far away as Alaska. The senior Nobles have passed away, but we can't bear to say goodbye to this cherished family treasure. We enjoy the house for special occasions, whenever some of us can gather, but during the summer months we rent to families much like our own. To insure that our renters have the best possible service, we have retained a local professional management company, Spectrum Rental Properties They have been managing the Noble Beach House for nine years, are real 'pros' and will take care of your every need responsively and efficiently.

Why The Owner chose Coastal North Carolina

The Noble family began vacationing in Pine Knoll Shores in the 1960's and built their dream house in 1970. Since then, change has come to many coastal communities, but Pine Knoll Shores, a bit off the beaten path, seems almost immune to hustle and bustle. It is truly a place where you can kick off your shoes, make yourselves at home and settle into the lazy, laid-back life. Even during the busy summer vacation season, you will have the beach practically to yourself. Yet shopping is only 10 minutes away, there are plenty of activities, local sights to see and excellent restaurants on the island or nearby in Morehead City and historic Beaufort.

What makes this house unique

First-time visitors to the Noble Beach House are enthralled by the views. Large, south-facing windows fill the rooms with light and invite the sky and ocean in....the Atlantic is a constant and visible presence, always changing, always fascinating. Another unique and much-enjoyed feature of the property ...our extra-large 'sittem' where a crowd can gather for beachside 'happy hour' or a reader can relax and soak up the rays. Because our island, Bogue Banks, lies east and west, we can view both sunrises and sunsets from the sittem. At certain times of the year, the sun even appears to rise out of and set into the ocean. And at night, you can see the Cape Lookout Light, flashing every 15 seconds to warn sailors away from 'the Graveyard of the Atlantic.' The stars are awesome too, and watching the meteor showers is amazing! Members of our family also enjoy the easy access to beach activities. They can safely jog and walk for miles ... no vehicles allowed. One of the of the Noble grandchildren, who is a surfer and kite-boarding instructor, explains that because of the 20-mile stretch of pristine beach and the constant southwest breezes, this area is ideal for ocean kite-boarding as well as excellent for flat-water kiting on the Intercoastal Waterway.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Noble Beach House Family:

We want to thank you for the opportunity to share your lovely home. We felt really at home and enjoyed looking at your family albums. We also enjoyed meeting Jean and John. We have been visiting Pine Knoll Shores since 1994 and this was our first beach house rental. It was great! We were pleased that everything we might need was furnished. We are hoping to return to Noble Beach House sometime next year with our two sons, daughters-in-law and our grandbabies. God Bless.

  • 5 of 5

plenty of rooms/beds, fabulous deck and stairways, even has a shuffleboard court (had to explain to the kids what that was), pool table, albeit kind of small. lots of privacy. The liv room has a great sound system. Large new gas grill for BBQ, oyster roasting, gas log in the fireplace. the owners are local and helped out with any questions we had. 4 bathrooms, lots of room to spread out. We will be back!

Wonderful Ocean Front Home!

  • 5 of 5

I live in this community and this is my favorite place on the beach to visit! The Noble Beach Home has beautiful views from every room. I enjoy cooking in the well stocked kitchen that even has a stocked spice cabinet. The owners have thought of everything that you may need. Our family will always come back here because it feels like home to us now!! The beach is gorgeous and it is fun to watch the turtles hatch during the summer!!

Our 3 generation family and dog stayed for an extended week to attend a family wedding. We loved the location of the house, quiet and peaceful...and had a wonderful week together. The views from the house could not be beat. However the house does need attention and remodeling. I was very disappointed in the bathrooms. We viewed other beachfront properties that family and friends were staying in, and they were totally renovated and remodeled for a 'slightly' higher price...but one worth paying for the value.

Great family vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much for sharing your home! It was a pleasure meeting Jean and John (the owners) on the beach while they were making their "turtle check" rounds. The house was perfect for my family (wife and 2 young boys) and older parents. My parents were able to use the elevator and sty on the main floor with little stair use and thew boys loved having their own "apartment" in the basement. The beach access is unsurpassed and everything was very clean and well maintained. The location in Pine Knoll Shores was also idea as you are literally minutes from the aquarium and only 10-15 minutes from Morehead City/Beaufort.

Perfect reunion spot for our group with small children!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I still reminisce about the amazing reunion we had at the Noble Beach house rental! We all went to college together, but now all live in different parts of the country. This was the perfect low-key, family-friendly vacation destination.

The house itself was clean and inviting with huge windows overlooking the ocean. There were plenty of toys and fun and interesting things to keep the kids busy while the adults enjoyed the large, open kitchen to make big family meals, enjoy a beverage and catch up with each other.

There were 6 adults and 4 children with plenty of space for everyone. In fact, we could have squeezed in a couple more. We loved our days having fun on the beach and nights after dinner, once the kids were in bed, hanging out on the "sittem", listening to music and watching the sun set.

All in all, I would definitely recommend this rental, especially for families. We are already planning our next trip back!

NBH recommendation

  • 5 of 5

We have been the guests of our son & doughter-in-law. We love this beach house because it

is so great for families. We can watch our grandchildren on the beach or entertain them on

the deck while their parents have some time for golf or shopping.

It is extremely clean and well furnished. We would recommend this beach house to anybody,

young, middle aged or older.
