About Pam and John Flynn

We used to live in Atlantic Beach on Bogue Sound. While we loved it for many years, we yearned for more acres and privacy. John and his friend Ron discovered this beautiful property and we all knew we were destined to build here! We did, and our children were in high school/middle school at the time. We love the privacy and being so far away from reality, but in fact, wthin 6 miles of a beautiful town, Beaufort! As well as 7 miles from the fishing village of Harker's Island! We couldn't have animals other than cats or dogs in Atlantic Beach, but out here we have a mini horse, and 2 goats that love to be petted and fed carrots and apples! Our 4 chickens love attention! Our 2 dogs, an old, gentle golden retriever, and a frisky pound puppy, can either stay at the house or we will relocate them. They love going swimming with you!!! Great for kids that love animals!!! We will be in charge of their care, so no worries there! :)

Pam and John Flynn purchased this house in 1998

Why Pam and John Flynn chose Coastal North Carolina

Peaceful, serene, secluded location, panoramic view of North River, which connects to the Atlantic Ocean, 'God's Country', open floorplan with tropical colors, plenty of room for large family gatherings

What makes this house unique

Escaping reality, enjoying nature at its best!! Private sandy beach...Water view from most rooms...being near so many awesome restaurants, coastal points of interest, Cape Lookout, Beaufort, Harkers Island, the Ocracoke ferry, the NC Aquarium, the Atlantic Ocean, etc etc etc!

Awesome family vacation spot!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this house was just wonderful! Everything and more than we expected! It was perfect for our big family, including 6 adults, 6 kids and a baby. There was a room with a crib and even a small loft that the kids loved going up to. The kids looked forward to feeding the animals each day and they caught their own hermit crabs right from the beach. The kayaks were super fun for kids and adults and the huge porch was a perfect spot to take a nap on the oversized hammock. All you really need to bring is a bathing suit (I'll pack much lighter next time) because all needed amenities like towels, kitchen utensils, shampoo, trash bags and paper towels are all available. Definitely a hidden treasure and we all look forward to returning! Thank you Pam and John for a wonderful stay and your fantastic hospitality!

Great property, Great Hosts

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Pam and John for the chance to rent your fabulous beachside home. The house was exactly as listed and more. Our families had a blast with all the activities and amenities. Even though we couldn't do much about the heat wave we had during that week, the beach was perfectly kid friendly and the home had plenty for us to do while staying cool inside. On top of all that, the nearby stable with the donkey, goat and horse made for a mini-petting zoo the kids absolutely adored. Thanks again for a wonderful experience!

Inclement weather didn't dampen our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Pam and John's house the week following Memorial Day. Despite Tropical Storm Bonnie, we had a wonderful time. The house was comfortable and provided everything we needed - towels, toiletries, etc. The kids loved the animals and enjoyed helping Pam feed them! We didn't get a chance to use the beach area because of the weather, but we took full advantage of the lovely covered deck and the awesome view. We highly recommend this vacation house!

More than I ever imagined!

  • 5 of 5

I have never felt more at home in a home other than my own until I had the pleasure of staying here! We had everything we could have needed and more. Our children loved the animals and they were so friendly! The owners of the house couldn't have been nicer! We had our wedding in the yard and it was everything I ever imagined! I would recommend staying here for any occasion!
