30ft camper situated at a working marina on Pelitier Creek just off the intracoastal waterway. Short drive to Atlantic Bch, Emerald Isle, & Beaufort-the location can't be beat! Canoe and kayaks available for use during your stay. Stand-up shower, microwave, coffee maker, HVAC, TV/DVD, outdoor grill, pull-out sofa & table.
Fish from the docks located just a few steps from your front door and eat out at wonderful restaurants or cook at your home away from home in the camper. Everyone of my friends and family who have stayed here rave about their delight in the experience. Since it is at a working marina, an alumium welder works in a nearby shop. While a lot of guests have loved their stay here, a few have commented that the place lacked the scenic outlook they were hoping for.
There is a microwave, coffee maker, toaster, freezer and refrigerator and gas range in the camper. There is also a stand-up shower and small bathtub in the camper. There is a gas or charcoal grill for you to use as well. You can borrow our crab pots, canoe or kayak at your own risk and beach items to enhance your experience. The canoe and kayaks are a short walk to the launch from the camper.
We will be available via phone or text. We will be on hand as little or much as you would prefer.
While this is a camper, it is connected to the city sewer so you can avoid dealing with certain duties expected in other campers.
For the rainy days, the camper is equipped with two TVs and DVD players. There is wifi available (not the best for streaming Netflix) but great for staying connected to the world, should you choose or have an unexpected email to respond to.
320 square feet of deck was just added to increase the outdoor living space. We have a picnic table, two rocking chairs and three other outdoor chairs for the deck.
Sand toys available. Guests will also have access to use a gas or charcoal grill. Kayaks (single and a double), life jackets and a 3-person canoe equipped with a caddy for easy transport to the waters edge are also available.
Most of my interaction is on the phone. However, Ron, the marina owner, may stop by and say hello or you may run into our property manager, Lou Ann at check-in. Almost all coordinating should be able to be done over the phone. When you have confirmed your stay, please text me you name and email address to (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) so I can send the check-in instructions.
Unfortunately we can not accommodate pets and we are thankful to have Lou Ann and Ron to help us with the camper. Sneaking a pet in is not recommended. Your vacation is way too important and we want you to be able to relax and not worry about any damage or inconvenience your pet(s) may cause. Thanks for respecting this policy.
House rules are fairly simple. No smoking at the camper. If you are a smoker please walk away from the camper while having a cigarette and place your stubbed butt directly in the dumpster nearby. Please do not throw it on the ground or in the trash can inside the camper. This rule is quite important to keeping the camper fresh for all future guests.
Second is to leave it as close as possible to how you found it. Wash your dishes before leaving and rinse out the crab pots if you used them during your stay.
We live in Durham but love the salt water and air. We love all things water, spending time with family, cooking and eating at great restaurants. We felt incredibly lucky to find the camper at the marina (we named it the Boat House) and be able to purchase it and immensely enjoy the time we are able to spend there as a family or to get away and unplug for a while.
My style as a host is to touch base and make sure the guests are all set with the instructions and answer any questions and set correct expectations for the experience. Staying in the camper is more comfortable and roomier than you might expect. In our opinion it is the best and most economical way to visit the coast and still have the comforts you expect while at home.
