About this Property

  • Sleeps 14
  • 7 Bedrooms
  • 5 Bathrooms
  • Private vacation home
  • Approximately 3000 square feet

Our family home, designed by my grandmother, has been my family's favorite place to go for more than 50 years. It has one purpose--to allow a enormous group of people to stay under one roof and have a great time at the beach. The bedrooms are modest so that the common areas can be sizable. It just feels right and comfortable and homey. The details:

Upstairs level (beach level):
Turquoise bedroom, 1 king bed, 1 half bath
Yellow bedroom, 1 double and 1 twin, 1 half bath
Green bedroom, 2 twins, 1 semi-attached full bath

Downstairs (road level):
Left bedroom, 2 twins, 1 sink, and 1 half bath down the hall
Right bedroom, 2 twins, 1 half bath
Back bedroom, 1 king, 1 twin, and 1 half bath
Former maid's quarters, 2 twins separated by a divider (very modest rooms)

2 standalone showers downstairs shared by everybody in the home
The laundry room is beside one of the showers.

The kitchen is well supplied with cookware, perhaps overly well supplied.

The downstairs has a common area with a TV if you need to escape.

Towel and complete linen service is included.

The crown jewels of the home:
The common area upstairs with dining, TV, and conversation and reading area (about 12'x 36')
The front deck with a third of the deck shaded by an upper deck sunbathing and viewing area (about 12'x45')

If you want to be alone, you can find a nook to be by yourself. If you want to be with people, you can be with people.

The beach is a 100 foot walk down the boardwalk, down the stairs, and 50 feet through the dunes. the entire property is kept as natural as possible.

About the Area

Hoop Pole Creek Nature Trail and Theodore Roosevelt Natural Area reflect the area's natural beauty and area attractions include North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores and Professor Hacker's Lost Treasure Golf and Raceway.

Finding the best Morehead City vacation property experience:

Get the most from your budget:

  • Summer is the most expensive season in coastal NC. To find the best value, try shifting your group's trip dates to the Spring or Fall shoulder seasons. May, September, and even October offer excellent temperatures, less crowded beaches, and reduced traffic. Many vacationers use this strategy to reserve larger homes, or to reserve a beach front vacation rental that would otherwise be unavailable or unaffordable during the Summer.
  • Reserve your vacation rental as early as possible. Rental schedules generally become available a year in advance (or in September just after the Summer season ends). Many groups reserve their Summer vacations during holiday gatherings. Book before these holidays for best selection.
  • Property managers sometimes offer discounts or promotional rates for active duty military and veterans. Remember to ask your property manager if special discounts are available for your group before you book.
  • Booking websites often offer guests an option to obtain trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which normally costs 1% - 5% of the reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for any days missed as a result of personal medical-related issues or weather disasters, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs, such as an unexpected hotel stay or additional gas expenses. Trip insurance might be a a bank account-saver if the unforeseen occurs. Ask the property owner for details.
  • Look for your local visitors guide upon arrival. If your rental property doesn't have a copy, you can find them at local shops and visitor centers. In addition to great articles, travel guides contain money saving offers on nearby tours, shops, and attractions.

Selecting and booking yourrental:

  • First and foremost, have your group choose dates and a maximum budget.
  • Decide how many beds and the bed configuration your group requires. Third generation house has 7 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms.
  • Precise information regarding bedrooms and bed counts is often accessible on booking pages. If they are not listed, email the host before booking the vacation home. Remember that most properties list the maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in living rooms. You will need to determine what configuration is optimal for your vacation group.
  • If there's a specific Morehead City beach you are enamored with, keep an eye out for rentals that are either close by, or those that cater to your needs.
  • Suitable accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for the less-mobile. Confirm all required amenities are available before reserving a rental.
  • If your group is traveling with pets, you'll need to find a pet-friendly property. Ask for information on breed, weight, and type requirements. Be aware that some hosts charge additional pet fees.

Advice for your stay:

  • Review check in & check out procedures before traveling. Take a printed copy, and save the directions to your smartphone.
  • During check-in, document any issues with the property and immediately contact the property manager. Keep records of all correspondence in case a dispute arises.
  • Property managers are available to help! Feel free to ask questions during your stay.
  • Be a good neighbor. Often, surrounding homes are occupied by permanent residents. Respecting quiet hours and parking regulations reduces conflict and allows everyone to enjoy their day.
  • Speaking of neighbors... Ask a local! Neighbors can typically help you find exactly what you're looking for. Who better to ask where to rent beach equipment, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for shopping?
  • Protect the owner (and your things!) by keeping the rental locked up when you are out, just like you would back home.
  • Re-check the rental property to confirm that you've packed everything at departure. Check closets, dressers, garages, and bathrooms for hidden items. Remove everything from the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Please make sure to walk through the property one final time and scan for damages to contents or the property itself. We suggest walking through with the host whenever you can (often this isn't possible). If the property manager isn't available, ensure that you take pictures of the rental to record its condition.
  • After your trip, leave feedback! Property managers rely on excellent ratings to stimulate more bookings. They'll be grateful for your feedback. Alternatively, if something wasn't as described, other vacationers will be thankful you shared your review and help them have the best future vacation. Be fair with your review. If something fell short of expectations, consider whether the manager had any control over the issue, and if so, whether they responded expeditiously to fix it.
