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! :)

The house was AMAZING! If you are looking for a quiet, noncomercial area to rest and relax THIS IS THE PERFECT HOUSE!! It was so spacious, clean, and inviting! My family and I were looking for somewhere to take my husband who was diagnosed with Alzhiemers at a very young age and unfortunately he is getting worse so the kids and I wanted to take him somewhere quite and noncomercialized so we could just relax and enjoy our time with him and make memories with him. This home was PERFECT! Spacious, clean, private beach! We enjoyed everything about it! Pam and John truly have gone above and beyond to make you feel like it's your home! From the porch swing to the fire pit! We took our grandchildren with us and they had a blast as well! The animals were a must visit every morning with carrots and apples! LOL! We went out a few times to the aquarium and dinner and other activities for the kids and everything was within a 20 minute drive! the rental price was worth every penny!! If I could rate this property, the location, Pam and John, the people of Beaufort NC it would be a 10 out of 10!! And that's not even including the amazing chocolate pie that Pam brought us 😉! Thank you again for making our special vacation wonderful, relaxing and most of all the special memories we were able to make!
Dear, sweet Angie,
Your words bring tears to my eyes. What a wonderful tribute you shared of our beach home and the very special memories you made there. We try to make it walk in ready for a fun and comfortable stay.
it's heartwarming that you chose our place for such a special gathering. I admire the way you all rallied around your husband to make the visit special for him. To know you enjoyed the swing, fire pit and animals makes me smile. I'm sure the animals were sad when you left!!! Glad you got to visit our awesome aquarium. And also happy the chocolate pie was a hit.
You and your family will remain in our hearts and prayers as you continue you journey... May God bring peace and comfort to you in the days and weeks ahead.
With love and warmest regards,
Pam and John
Words can't describe how amazing our stay was!
From the first time I talked to Pam, I knew exactly why they didn't have anything less than 5 stars! I've never met anyone so nice and accommodating! The house was perfect, a short walk to the water, and animals to make you smile! I loved every minute of our stay, and enjoyed all the hospitality!
I am so sorry I'm just responding to your awesome review...somehow it was lost in cyber world!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay!! Thrilled that the house fitted your needs. Happy you enjoyed the beach and the silly animals!!!
We get great pleasure out of meeting vacationers such as you! Thanks for making happy memories at our beach house!!

The house was exactly as described. The drone video helped us to see everything before we went. The host was friendly and treated us as family. The kids enjoyed the toys and the animals. The only drawback was that we were located on the river and there was very little beach. Overall it was a good trip.
Perfect for large family
Pam was so accommodating. We absolutely loved our stay. We hope to come back but will certainly pass less next time. There was more than enough activities to keep the adults / kids/ teenagers busy. There were kayaks for the entire family , didn't even have to take turns. We did some fishing and caught some little stuff which was fun for the kids. Highly recommend for families with lots of kids.
The beach was great for kids but it is very shallow so not really a place you can swim as it was no deeper than waist high as far as you can walk ....and we walked pretty dang far.
Overall, it'll be our first choice if we make it back that way next year
Thanks for taking the time to share your comments with us! It was such a pleasure to meet your awesome group. Glad you enjoyed the kayaks! Happy you caught some fish with the kids. Other renters have reported that they went out deeper and caught good size fish such as puppy drum! The water depth is controlled by the tide lol, so sometimes you don't have to walk as far to deeper water. Glad the beach was a pleasure for the kids.
Hope to see you all again! We love our repeat renters!!
Fondly, and with gratitude,
Pam and John
Perfect for our group of friends!
We LOVED staying at the Flynn's house. The setting was perfect, there was plenty of room, and they provided everything we needed for a wonderful stay. The small beach was exactly what we needed for our tribe of young-ins. And the house came equipped with kids toys, kitchen essentials (plus non-essentials), tons of towels, and plenty of room. We hated leaving our beach retreat and would love to come back next year!!
So sorry that I'm just seeing this very dear review! Lost in cyber space I guess, like another one!!!
We are so glad you had a good time at our beach house!!! So happy there was plenty of room for you all. We LOVE young'uns and get great pleasure out of them enjoying the animals, kayaks, basketball goal, toys, etc!!
We provide paper towels, shampoo, etc etc, sheets on beds, lots of towels, to make your stay more convenient. That's because we would certainly appreciate these if we rented a vacation home!
The fall has been absolutely gorgeous here...Winter will continue to provide beautiful sunsets and cozy bonfires. Then spring will bring green grass and flowers! Then SUMMER!! We enjoy all the seasons here!!
Thanks again for making happy memories here!
Most sincerely, and with appreciation,
Pam and John
Wonderful House, well provided and great location
We had everything we needed for a great vacation - linens, towels, toys and games for inside the house and lots of kayaks and beach toys for the outside. The location is nice too, tucked away and quiet, but not far from Atlantic beach. Pam was also very responsive for our requests. I would rate it the best experience we have ever had with our rentals.
6 miles from Beaufort, NC which tied for 'Coolest Small Town in America'! 3 miles to the best golf course in the County, North River Club, 6 miles to Harkers Island, a small fishing village. 10 miles to downtown Morehead City 15 miles to Atlantic Beach, 30 minutes to the Ocracoke ferry, 20 miles to the NC Aquarium, wonderful restaurants all around!!! Fresh seafood available everywhere!!! Launch your small flat bottom boat at Harker's Island or Taylor's Creek in Beaufort, and anchor it in front of our house!!!
