The only true waterfront rental house with water views from almost every room and a private newly refurbished dock, 10 steps from your door! Very relaxing and natural decor-everything blends in with the beautiful water that is just steps from your back door. When you enter the king size master suite, you will be overwhelmed by the view. It has its own bath and a large glass-walled view with access to a private deck. Enjoy watching dolphins, boats, sunrises and sunsets on the calm waters of Taylor Creek. The newly remodeled second master suite has a queen bed with full bath and water view. The kitchen has an open floor plan with a breakfast bar and a large pine dining table that seats 10 and allows everyone a view of the wild ponies and sailboats. The second story deck with spiral stair affords gorgeous views all the way to the Atlantic ocean and Shackleford Banks-a perfect sunset watching spot for cocktails! You can walk or bike to town everyday or night for lunch and dinner in Beaufort's historic downtown where there is no shortage of restaurants and ice cream parlors. This is a kid-friendly town where streets are all flat and perfect for bicycling.

About Stan Breakell
We fell in love with this town while dropping our oldest son off at Camp Seagull in 2001. We have brought our 4 boys here since then and they have all grown up loving Beaufort as well. 5 of us got certified for scuba here at Discovery Dive and we tend to make every vacation a diving opportunity. We hope to retire here one day-if we can ever get our boys out of college! We know you will fall in love with Beaufort too!
Stan Breakell purchased this House in 2001
Why Stan Breakell chose Harkers Island
Carrot Island is right across the creek and you can watch the ponies and dolphins from almost any window Private.Dock in backyard that does not even require you to cross the street!. 1 level living. Large windows and open floor plan bring the views all the way into the house. Deep water dock for serious boaters and sailors.
What makes this House unique
You can see the water from the front door all the way through the house. When you walk up the spiral staircase to the second floor deck you know you are living large!

Beautiful House Beside the Sea
Spacious, well furnished, single level house in a quieter, less busy part of Beaufort. Beautiful views and convenient boat access to Taylor creek. Owner (Stan) strives to keep the home well maintained. Great opportunity for our elderly mom and uncle to reconnect after many years, while we enjoyed kayaking and Beaufort's historical attractions.
Thanks Willis. I agree that one floor living makes it easy for elderly folks but it also makes it easy for families with children with beach and boating stuff to carry. I like being able to walk out the sunroom door and be on my dock in 10 steps!
Best spot in Beaufort
Everything was just as we hoped it would be and better. House had an excellent view! Home was spacious & had everything we needed!
Thanks for your kind remarks. We bought in 2001 for the deep water access and dock plus the Rachel Carson nature preserve being directly in our back yard and have never regretted it!
There is nothing like being right on the water
Great views inside and outside the house, easy dock access to the water, great kayaking and even wild horses just across the way. If this sounds great to you, then this is the place to stay.
Ideal for families who love water and nature
This is our second vacation in this beautiful home in the most perfect location...walking distance from many great restaurants and activities on the Beaufort waterfront. We love fishing, kayaking, and paddle boarding with dockside convenience. The roof deck offers a panoramic view of birds, boats, horses (and pirates) with the gorgeous background of marsh, ocean, sunrise, and sunset. We love forward to our next opportunity to stay here.
Comfortable home with a great view
We very much enjoyed our week at this home. The view is great, the proximity to downtown attractions is handy, and the home is very comfortable. Highly recommend it..
Thanks folks. We dicovered this place with its private backyard dock and the Rachael Carson Nature Preserve across the creek and fell in love with it. Happy to share.
My family rented this house for the first time this summer. We rent a house every year, but this is the first time we've stayed in Beaufort. The house was beautiful, all on one level, and well-stocked. The layout gives everybody some privacy and the common areas are comfortable with a great view of the water. The rooftop deck is a great addition. We watched fireworks from 5 different locations on the 4th! We loved sitting and watching the boats, and spotted the horses and dolphins on many occasions. Proximity to Beaufort was very convenient. Had a wonderful vacation. Thanks, Steve!
Thanks for the kind words. We really believe the one level arrangement is best for busy boaters. It sure makes it easy to stage and manage all the boating, swimming and fishing gear. Of course, having the dock 10 steps from your door can't be beat! We continue to make improvements so any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks again for staying with us!
Look out your back door at the wild ponies that roam on the protected Rachael Carson Preserve across the water. Cape Lookout is a nice round trip in a day to see the lighthouse. Collect shells on Bird Shoal or Carrot Island. Ride bikes anywhere your heart desires (just 5min. to town on bikes). It is a nice 10 minute stroll to the downtown docks. Walk to town, have lunch or dinner and see the million-dollar yachts that stop in Beaufort on their way up and down the Intracoastal Waterway and the great Atlantic. You can go ferrying, kayaking, sailing, walking, bicycling, cruising, shelling, and lounging. You can visit Fort Macon, too. And when no one is looking, you can check your email with free WIFI. Boat slip with deep water access in front yard! Downtown Historic Beaufort is a stroll away. There are beaches, state parks, kayaking, excellent shopping, awesome restaurants, and a ferry to the outer islands. This is a quiet vacation spot for couples and families. Just across the draw bridge is a more-active Morehead City, with miniature golf, theaters, malls and all the touristy activity kids sometimes want. Fishing is excellent and many tournaments are held in Beaufort all year round. Walk or bicycle to the North Carolina Maritime Museum and see Blackbeard the Pirates' recovered artifacts. There is also a wooden boat-building workshop. Bring your boat and tie it up to our deep water access dock! ASK ABOUT OUR NEW RESORT PROPERTY AT SMITH MOUNTAIN LAKE, VIRGINIA
