Rejuvenate yourself at the premier oceanfront bungalow in Atlantic Beach. Your stay at Sea Haven promises to add many incredible memories to your vacation scrapbook and keep you wanting to come back year after year!
Sea Haven is a cavernous 6 bedroom oceanfront beach home that is located in one of the best locations on the island. The home lies in a peaceful, calming neighborhood, yet is within walking distance of the Atlantic Beach boardwalk to the west and the fishing pier to the east, so there are a wide variety of activities and eateries close by. The beach in front of the home is relatively peaceful and secluded, and you will often find yourself alone with your thoughts early in the morning. At 3 stories and nearly 4000 square feet, this home is one of the biggest beach homes in the area, and offers tremendous value. The home can sleep a lot of people, so the cost per person is among the best you'll find, making Sea Haven one of the best values on the beach.
The 1st floor is entirely self-sufficient, with a separate entrance, two bedrooms, a full kitchen, two bathrooms, and washer/dryer. This ground level floor is accessible without climbing stairs through the french doors next to the parking area. This “mother-in-law” suite is great for people who can’t climb stairs or those who just want a separate hideaway away from the traffic and kids on the upper two floors. This floor has a “game room” with a professional grade air hockey table and TV. There are interior stairs between the first and second floors, with lockable doors at the top and bottom of the stairs. The main home is on the 2nd and 3rd floors, and is entered through stairs on the parking side of the home, or via the deck stairs on the ocean side (or via the previously mentioned interior stairs from the 1st floor). The 2nd floor has a entryway, full kitchen, dining area, living room, 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a washer/dryer. The 3rd floor has 2 bedrooms and 1 bath, with one of the bedrooms offering a modest breakfast table overlooking the ocean.
Bedroom #1 has a queen bed and a private bathroom.
Bedroom #2 has a full bed and a private bathroom.
There is a den/game room on this level with a TV as well as an additional dining area, an additional full kitchen, and another washer/dryer. This floor has a private entrance from outside, so it can be used as a completely independent apartment.
Bedroom #3 has a queen bed, a TV, and adjoins a Jack & Jill style bathroom.
This floor has the kitchen, living room, TV, a DVD player, and deck access. You will also find the main dining area and the main kitchen. Off of the kitchen, you will find a convenient full bathroom and washer dryer.
Bedroom #4 is oceanfront, and has a king bed, a TV, and adjoins a Jack & Jill style bathroom.
Bedroom #5 is oceanfront, and has two queen beds, a twin bed, a TV, and adjoins a Jack & Jill style bathroom. Note: this bedroom is actually divided into two bedrooms. You first enter the oceanfront bedroom with one queen bed, then go through a second door to the adjoining bedroom with one queen and a twin. We find that many parents with toddlers adore this setup, as the toddler room is right next door where moms can keep a close eye on them.
Bedroom #6 is oceanfront, and has two queen beds, 1 twin bed, a TV, and adjoins a Jack & Jill style bathroom. There is also a modest breakfast table overlooking the ocean in this bedroom.
Total linens includes 1 king, 6 queens, 1 full, and 2 twins.
Bathrooms: On the 1st floor, each bedroom has its own bathroom. The main bathroom on the 2nd floor lies off the entry. A new LG washer and dryer are located here. The other bathroom on this floor is located between the bedrooms for convenient access (Jack & Jill style, with the bathrooms entered through the bedrooms). The 3rd floor bathroom is also located between the bedrooms.
All floors have independent thermostats and central heat/air Trane units to optimize comfort. Flat screen TV's are installed as well.
The deck is exceptionally huge at over 500 square feet, and has an attached outdoor shower shed (ground water temperature). There is also a covered 400 square foot porch with two enormous picnic tables, which are great for inclement weather or for just getting out of the sun. The view is unmatched...Sea Haven faces due south on an east-west beach, so during certain times of the year, you can savor both a sunrise and a sunset from the same location (this is one of the few beach locations in the US where this occurs). From the steps of the deck, the waves at high tide are only about 15 yards away. We have installed a park style grille on the ground level. For safety reasons please only grille on the ground (not on the deck or porch).
Rules: No Smoking. Smoking outside only. Please dispose of your cigarette butts. There will a charge for clean up of cigarette butts and other trash left on the ground.
The chimney is capped to protect the home from rain during hurricanes, so the fireplace is for decoration only and is not to be used. For comfort and to keep sand from blowing onto your bed, please keep windows closed at all times. This also helps prevent salt air corrosion. Windows are to remain closed and locked at all times. Windows found open will result in a $250 service charge. Please help us keep the home nice for the next guest. To keep the home nice for everybody, violations of any home rules or the rental agreement may result in termination of the stay, without refund.
Beach Chairs & Umbrellas: Beach chairs and etc. are not kept at the home anymore, as we had too many left on the beach which disappeared. Taking any home furnishings off of the home property, including deck chairs and cushions, is grounds for termination. However, these items are available for rent at nearly rental businesses: https://www.islandessentials.com
Beach Umbrellas: Beach Wheels Bicycle Units, (252) 240-2453, www.beachwheelsbikerentals.com, 9 miles away on 1420 Salter Path Rd, Atlantic Beach, NC 28512. They deliver as well.
Due to the risk of hurricanes, family illness or other factors, renters are highly encouraged to purchase vacation or travel insurance. We cannot make exceptions to our written cancellation policy.
In order to ensure that the home is ready for other guests following your stay, we cannot accommodate wedding, graduation, or spring-break groups (or any other similar "event" or event groups). The home lies in a peaceful residential neighborhood, so events are forbidden. Any event will likely result in a visit from the town police and subsequent eviction. Please be courteous to your neighbors during your stay and you won't have any problems.
If you have any issues that are not resolved satisfactory by contacting the management, please e-mail me. We hope you appreciate your stay!
Garbage Pickup: please put all garbage cans along the road Sunday nighttime for pickup Monday. There is no specific time, so pickup can occur early or late in the day.
Beginning Memorial Day (the last Monday in May), garbage is picked up twice, on Monday and Thursday. Starting Labor Day, garbage pickup is only once a week on Monday.
Garbage cans must be placed along the road in order to be picked up. Please space them about one foot apart because if they are touching each other, the garbage man can’t get his truck jaws around them. If a can is missing, please let us know...it might be "borrowed" by a close by home guest. The garbage can serial numbers are listed below.
We pay additional for all of these so you don't run out of space.
Garbage Can Numbers (Green):
Recycle Bins (Blue):
Linens: sheets, blankets, pillows are supplied. There are enough bath towels for each bathroom, but you may want to bring more depending on the number of people you have in your group. It is also wise to bring your own pillow if you prefer the one you sleep with every nighttime at home.
Pots & Pans: I don’t have an inventory of the items, but the home is pretty well equipped, and we’ve never had anyone call us and ask for additional items. There are pots, pans, regulator coffee maker, toaster, one crock pot, etc. There may be two of each of these items, as we have two kitchens in the home. Some of the items can be viewed in the kitchen photos. There are No Keurig or pod-type coffee makers.
Lifeguards: There is a lifeguard zone run by the town near the circle during certain times of the year. The lifeguard zone is a short walk west down the beach from the home (about 1,100’). See http://atlanticbeach-nc.com/departments/fire-department/lifeguards/.
Groceries: the nearest full grocery store is Food Lion: (252) 726-9413, about 1.3 miles away at 1010 W Fort Macon Rd, Atlantic Beach, NC 28512.
Urgent Care Location: BeachCare Urgent & Family Medical Center: (252) 808-3696, 7 miles away at 5059 Hwy 70 W, Morehead City, NC 285577 miles away. There are other facilities as well.
The information above may change from time to time, so we encourage you to use Google maps to search for the items you are interested in to get updates to phone numbers, etc. https://www.google.com/maps
