Here's what Tracey had to say after visiting Carolina Clipper in July 2017:
Wonderful beach front home with 5 stars! My family and I stayed at this house recently and we loved it. There is a path right next to the house for access to the beach or behind the home.The home is layed out perfectly. Four large bedrooms. Decking around the entire home. I had 5 kids ranging from 14-22 my husband and my mom. The home offers lots of light. You look directly at the ocean and from the top floor you can see the sound too. Kids spent days at the beach surfing ans swimming. My mom walked for miles up and down the beach; this was our first time at this side of the Outer Banks and we loved it!!!!
WE KNOW YOU'LL LOVE CLIPPER TOO!
It has it all! With miles of untouched beaches, marshes and bird preserves, the historic Chicamacomico Life Saving station and the famous Cape Hatteras lighthouse in Buxton there's something for everyone. Take a 40 minute ferry ride to Ocracoke Island and see the wild ponies, explore the picturesque harbor and see the famous British cemetery or tour the Ocracoke lighthouse. If fishing is your sport, charter a deep sea boat for tuna, cobia, wahoo, mackeral, mahi-mahi and other Gulf Stream fish, or fish off one of island fishing piers, fish in the Sound or just surf cast off the beach for blues, croakers, drum and flounder.
Enjoy all of this and more from Carolina Clipper, the perfect oceanfront home for your family! A charming, spacious, year round cottage is fresh and bright. It features an open and airy floor plan with large rooms.
Enjoy miles of unspoiled beach at your back door as well as windsurfing and fishing. Located on a quiet street and set in a cozy secluded drive way with trees and shrubs providing privacy.
Enjoy your morning cup of coffee from the Captains Watch with beautiful sunrise views. Come back in the evening for cocktails for equally spectacular sound sunsets. 'Carolina Clipper' is the perfect home away from home to relax. Watch the dolphins play while you relax in the hot tub on the top deck. Or relax in a nice 2-person jacuzzi tub off of the master suite. Plenty of room for privacy, even with large groups. Soak up the sun on the outside decks or dine on the shaded, screened porch.
This house has a reverse floor plan with the bedrooms located on the first level. There is a large King bedroom and a large bedroom with two Double beds. Both have sliders leading to the rear deck and share a full bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and a shower. There is also a Queen bedroom, a bedroom with a Pyramid bed and a hall bathroom. The laundry area is on this floor as well.
The Great Room on the second level is large and spacious, with access to the deck overlooking the ocean.
