Direct beachfront duplex with humongous deck overlooking the dunes and Oceanna Fishing Pier. When you vacation at the beach you want to be AT the beach not near the beach. Keys are supplied via a lock box, so check-in has no in person contact.

Our family has owned this unit for over 25 years, and we do annual updates for our guests' comfort. The 2020 and early 2021 period gave us an opportunity to do a total remodel with replacing most of the drywall, new floor, and fans. We have new modern appliances, deck furnishings just as a hotel would, hammocks below the deck and my favorite feature, outside enclosed showers with HOT & cold water for your outdoor showering enjoyment.

New wall colors, more parking and new covered entryway are just a few of the upgrades. We provide pretty much everything you need to walk in and relax. We provide a completely supplied kitchen with spices, paper goods (when in short supply bring toilet paper and paper towels but we do start you off) , zip lock bags, aluminum foil ( bottom drawer beside refrigerator has paper towels and toilet paper) and just ask that you restock if you have time so the next guest has everything they need.

Each unit is a mirror image of the other except for color schemes and floor. Both units are refreshed annually, and for 2022, we added a UVC germicidal light in our ductwork to kill viruses and mold to help make our heating and air system cleaner and better for those with allergies.

The Vacation Rental By Owner listing for the sister listing is 666411, so you can read the reviews there if you like. We also have a cleaning crew who lives locally to keep the unit in great shape throughout the season and follows current 2023 cleaning recommendations. Each side has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths plus the outdoor shower provides outdoor comfort when you come back from the beach. The giant outdoor deck accepts everybody to spend time outside and eat on the deck, too, if you like. It's a great experience preparing your food with the included outdoor grille, just replaced in 2022. Recent upgrades include a few new ceiling fans, new 4 burner stainless steel grille, new couch, new stove and new twin XL beds in the 3rd bedroom. If you adore sunsets and sunrises, please look at our photos. You'll notice very few sunrise photos (by choice) but tons of sunset photos. This is a rare east/west facing beach, so you get fabulous sunrises and marvelous sunsets. We provide beach chairs and some toys for the kids too but remember to bring your beach towels.

Our neighbors own and manage the only privately owned Event Venue on the NC coast "The Cottage at The Crystal Coast" which is 5 homes up from ours. They host live events, concerts and weddings so check them out at www.thecottage.com. You might see a concert listed on their "live events" calendar and decide to walk to the concert with your friends or book a wedding event for the future and have guests stay at our units.

Having the pier just a few hundred yards away is an amenities you are sure to savor. Even if you don't fish, you can walk on the pier and see if anyone else is having luck and appreciating a drink from their bar or, better yet, make one and take it with you. If you like to surf, either side of the pier creates fantastic breakers and has always been known as one of the best surf spots on the island. If you would rather fish and don't like the pier, surf fishing right in front of our home can provide lunch or dinner!

You'll quickly notice our beach is very huge, wide, clean and relatively uncrowded. Our end of the beach is primarily single family homes for low density uncrowded beaches. If you want to walk the beach you can head towards the circle (town center for Atlantic Beach) and visit the world famed TackleBox (locals dive bar), have a beverage outside at Idle Hour or eat at one of numerous eateries. Just a few blocks from our unit (painless walk) can have you at Amos Mosquito's, arguably one of the best eateries around and the Island Grille, which is just up the street. It may be modest but the food is fantastic. You can always drive over to the Morehead City waterfront and choose between a dozen different eateries or head over to Beaufort and shop and dine on the waterfront.

Whithaven is a special place, I hope you get the opportunity to join us and see for yourself.

Strategies for getting the best Atlantic Beach vacation rental experience:

When to book & When to go:

  • Booking your Morehead City vacation home in the Spring or Fall is one of our best tips for saving money on your rental home. Rates are lower, and you'll find a larger selection of acceptable homes. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook the holidays for a Morehead City vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday near the ocean? Christmas, Thanksgiving, and New Years Eve are great times to gather with loved ones at the beach.
  • The earlier you can reserve a home, the easier your search will be. The best rental homes are reserved very early. Booking your rental home up to 12 months before your vacation is recommended. Winter holidays are excellent times to search for and reserve your rental property.
  • Property managers sometimes offer promotional rates for veterans. Make sure to check with your property manager to see if discounts are available for your group.
  • Booking websites often offer customers an option to buy trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which generally will cost you 1% - 5% of the reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of their vacation costs for missed time as a result of medical-related issues or weather disasters, as well as hurricane evacuation costs, such as an unanticipated hotel overnight or extra fuel expenses. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask the property owner for specifics.
  • Look for your local Morehead City visitors guide when you arrive at the rental property. If your rental home doesn't have a copy, you can find them at local shops and visitor centers. In addition to great local information, travel guide magazines contain coupons for nearby accommodations, restaurants and tours.

Narrow your rental Search:

  • Begin by selecting potential vacation weeks and a budget.
  • Note the number bedrooms and the configuration your group needs. DIRECT OCEANFRONT Duplex with large 3 level deck next to Oceanana Fishing Pier. has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. If you need a larger or smaller rental, use our Morehead City rentals search.
  • Precise details about bedrooms and bed counts & types is usually available on booking pages. Otherwise, email or call the property owner before booking the rental. Note that most listings specify the maximum guest capacity, which typically includes pull-out couches. You'll need to establish which bed configuration is best for your family.
  • Are you looking for unique amenities? Most websites include amenity lists and search filters. Amenity filters help you quickly remove less-optimal properties.
  • Proper accessibility can make or break a vacation for guests that require the use of a wheelchair. Make certain to inquire about wheel chair accessibility, pool lifts and specialized equipment needs.
  • Some rentals allow pets, and some don't. Acceptable types of dog or cat, weight and breeds may be restricted, and additional charges may apply. Ask the property manager about pet restrictions before booking.

Know before you go:

  • Be sure you get the property manager's contact number and entry/exit procedures for your rental.
  • Record any issues with the rental at check in, and immediately contact the owner. We especially recommend texts and e-mails, as they usually contain built-in time stamps that can be beneficial if a dispute is filed.
  • Ask questions. You may want instructions for a fireplace, A/V setup or washer/dryer. Contact your host. They are there to help! A brief call can prevent a lot of concerns.
  • Be respectful of your neighbors. Often times, adjacent homes are occupied by local residents. Respecting noise limits and parking rules reduces conflict and allows everyone to enjoy their day.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local resident! Local residents can usually help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to go for the best drinks, have a great night out, or the best spots for BBQ?
  • Keep your rental home locked while you're gone! Don't let burglars spoil your trip.
  • Upon check-out, take a walk-through to make sure you have not forget any personal items. Make sure to check dressers, closets, and bathrooms for hidden belongings. Clean out the refrigerator and take any leftovers home.
  • Document the condition of the property at check-out. We recommend taking a video during your final walk-through.
  • Did you have a wonderful vacation? Most rental home management companies make it easy for clients to provide comments. If your rental property and/or property manager was terrific, they would love to hear it. If anything was amiss and they failed to correct it within reason, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make it a point as part of your review.
