Overview

Pine Knoll Shores House Rental Photos and Description

Airy, comfortable home on a pristine beach. family gatherings.

Enjoy the most beautiful beach on the East Coast from this serene light-filled oceanfront home. The clean design and wonderful open floor plan make it the perfect place to bring family and friends together with the Atlantic Ocean as your front yard. Due to the unusual orientation of Bogue Bank, you can watch the sun rise AND set from the dramatic deck of this modern contemporary house.

Simple pleasures for all ages abound: long morning walks, body surfing, world class shell collecting, watching porpoises play from the deck, sunbathing and just getting lost in a good book. Food even tastes better at this location! Serve up a casual seafood supper on the breezy screened porch as the sun begins to set.

Three comfortable bedrooms and two baths on the main floor, including a bright and spacious oceanfront master suite. The lower level with direct beach access offers an additional bedroom, bath and a large bunk room to sleep 6, perfect for cousins or single guests. This is accessed from the steps from the great room.

There are only ten steps to the beach from the lower level.

The home is located in a sleepy beachside community. The nearest major attraction is the wonderful North Carolina Aquarium less than five minutes away. Enjoyable restaurants are within a ten-minute drive.

If your group is 'all about the beach,' this is the house for you.

About Monica Heckman

Our family has created many happy memories here on the most beautiful beach in the country. This very special home has been the perfect place to celebrate retirement, new babies, family reunions, Easter, Thanksgiving and even a Spring wedding. We still vacation as an extended family every year. As the family grows, we fill every inch of this home with laughs and good times.

The home was designed for private spaces. You can get away from the activity and enjoy a spot on your own, be it on the hammock, or just in your quiet bedroom.

Monica Heckman purchased this house in 1979

Why Monica Heckman chose Coastal North Carolina

Quiet, restful, natural location where the ocean is front and center. You will definitely have your place of solitude and privacy on this near-empty stretch of beach. You just don't find this type of beach anymore.

What makes this house unique

Breezy screened porch, ocean front views from living room, dining room, kitchen, master suite and master bath. Wide deck overlooks the beach. Outdoor shower. No fuss simplicity and comfort - suitable for all ages. Well-behaved pets allowed.

Heckman House

  • 5 of 5

Perfect beach house, fully stocked kitchen, big windows so you can enjoy the ocean from inside the home. My grandchildren loved the screened in porch and we were so close to the beach. The dining room table was perfect for our family. Again, the perfect beach house. Already requested a week in 2017!

Wonderful Again!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year coming back and it was another Great Vacation! I think the weather was even nicer than last year. The ocean water was like bath water. Having stayed here before we felt like we were home again. Even our dog Mercedes, ran right in, she remembered the place and got comfy right away. Made incredible meals at the house, corn hole tournaments on the beach, poker night, saw dolphins almost daily. Saved the last night for dinner at the Island Grill restaurant, yummy! Saturday morning was a little sad having to leave but the dolphins gave us a great send off in beautifully calm ocean waters.

Revisit to Pine Knoll Shores 15 years later.

  • 5 of 5

Blended family of 5 kids went from 9 and 13 to 24 and 28 years of age. Easy living. No worries. like home, not fancy. Fully equipped for sure. Before you bring or buy almost anything...check out what is there. It seems like people come and go and leave stuff...... we left bogie boards, there was a kite, chairs, awning. In the kitchen there was triplicated of everything. We went kayaking, fishing, swimming, visited Fort Macon where they shot off canons on the 4th and saw a 200 pound stingray get caught and then have babies on the beach before it was let go. We froze water in containers and used them to keep our cooler stuff cold. The extra fridge and small chest freezer saved us trips to the grocery store. Fantastic time for all.
