Want a restful vacation, with just enough to keep the family entertained, but not be overwhelmed with hordes and traffic?

We have a private pier into the sound for kayaking, sailing, playing with kids. (and some fishing) - Shallow water....
THE HOME IS NOT DESIGNED FOR AND PROHIBITS GROUPS OR UNRELATED FRIENDS.
There is limited parking - 3 in the driveway, 1 on the street. YOU MAY NOT PARK IN ANY NEIGHBOR'S DRIVE WHETHER THEY APPEAR TO BE AT HOME OR NOT!!! Please be aware that we are the only rental in a private subdivision and we are responsible to our HOA.
The home has 2 unique features - it is sound front with a pier into the sound and 2 separate living areas - one on the first floor - with a queen sleeper futon, as well as a living area with couch, appreciate seat and entertainment center, a full bath and outside access onto a modest patio. A reminder that this sleeping area is in a public space!
The top (3rd!) floor is the main living area with open space kitchen, dining, full bath, and 2 separate seating areas! An additional queen sleeper futon is off to the side in a reading nook. - this is a public space and offers NO privacy - ideal for teens or kids, or the early riser in the family. It has a beautiful deck with tall Adirondack chairs for sound and island vistas.
The middle floor has 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. All bedrooms come with flatscreen TV's with Roku/internet access. (Please use your own credentials for specialty TV channels) The master has a queen sized bed and a 4 piece, ensuite, with jetted tub and 5 foot shower! The 2nd bedroom also has a queen sized bed. Both open onto the sound side deck. The 3rd bedroom has a bunk with a "full" sized bottom and a single upper. The washer and dryer are on this floor for handy access.
The top floor is open design with tons of vistas. It includes the kitchen, dining area, reading area, TV area. The dining room table seats 8 with 4 additional barstools at the kitchen counter. The kitchen is equipped with all the modest appliances and standard amenities. A standard gas grille is included. There is also an electric fireplace for cool weather visiting.
The kitchen is equipped with all standard appliances and dishes/silverware, pots and pans for feeding your crowd. You will also find enough basics - paper towels, TP, paper plates/cups, dish soap, laundry soap, coffee, sugar, etc -(you get the picture!) so you don't need to dash off to the store.
The home's private pier leads to the sound for fishing, clamming, sailing. It is a little shallow for bigger speedboats, except at high tide, but it is great for modest kids, sailing, kayaking, jet skis, and sunset viewing. (We do NOT provide any recreational cars......) There is a local marina just 1 mile away in Salter Path (Indian Beach) where you launch water cars....and a rental place less than 2 miles away.
The ocean/beach access is just 3 tenths of a mile away in Salter Path. It is recommended that folks with modest kids drive and make the 3 min. trip with toys, chairs, etc. since it is on the main road. It is a well-kept secret, because even on holiday weekends, it is painless to find parking and a 'spot' on the beach with some space to spread out your towels, and family - no 'elbow to elbow, listening to someone else's music'. It has outside showers, bathrooms, and grilles, and a good number of parking spaces, many of which are shaded. The beach is wide and sandy, and the water has a gradual slope out, providing tons of safe places to swim and skim board. (The home has an enclosed outside shower with hot and cold water to rinse off sandy feet.)
The North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores is just 2 miles away and provides phenomenal viewing, touch tanks, as well as programs for all age levels.
A modest amusement park and 2 theaters are within a few mins. drive and provide change of pace activities when you a need a break from the sun, sea and salt.
Everything you would need for a peaceful vacation is less than 15 mins. away
Morehead City, Cape Carteret, and Beaufort are modest close by (less than 20 miles!) towns with tons of appeal, as well as art galleries, local museums, antique stores and fresh shopping. New Bern, NC is 45 mins. away and has a real castle, and many historic amenities.
