About the property

1500 Sq. Feet Includes 3 Bedrooms, 3 Bath With Full Kitchen. Amazing Views!

Unique one of a kind 1500 Square foot 3 BR and 3 bath in the heart of downtown Beaufort. You have a private Front Street entrance to take you to shopping, dining, the Beaufort waterfront and all it's amenities. Sit inside and watch the boats or go by, view the flat screen TV or head upstairs to the roof top deck. This unit gives you everything you need to make your vacation special.

Harborside Suites has one of the only roof top decks in Beaufort to give you the panoramic views of Taylors Creek, Beaufort, Fort Macon, Cape Lookout and the wild horses just across the water.

This historic building was renovated in 2001 and blends down east charm with an urban setting. Walk across the street and hop a water taxi to one of the many islands to swim, fish, shell or enjoy nature. Better yet, take the Cape Lookout express for a wonderful boat ride to visit Cape Lookout Lighthouse on the tip of the southern outer banks.

If you would like to dock your own boat at the city docks right out our front door just call 252-728-2503 and they will explain procedures and pricing. The Boat House at Front Street is about a mile or so down the road and has day storage, dry storage and a public landing is right beside them. Call for additional information 252-838-1524.

Walk to numerous restaurants or pubs, shop till you can't stand it anymore and then get some ice-cream or a cold one at multiple waterfront restaurants. Almost everything you need for a fantastic stay is provided. see note below***

If our Beaufort unit is unavailable and you would like to stay at the beach instead please check out our Ocean Front Duplex in Atlantic Beach. It is on VRBO as well and maybe that will work for you instead. Whithaven 2, vrbo 666411

***Please note linen and towel service is optional. Most guests choose to bring their own sheets (King, Queen, Twins) and towels. The cleaning service can provide linen and towel service for an additional charge with advance notice. Please either add $30 per room during payment or feel free to add the service by emailing or calling and you can be billed separately.

To help reduce some of the booking fee going forward in 2017 I have eliminated the insurance requirement since we have had minimal damage. Please help us continue this policy by reporting to me any damage during your stay. If it is minor we won't worry about it but I do want to repair or replace for the next guests so please help us keep the unit ready and updated for the next guest. Let Karma be our friend!

About Lee or Dawn Whitley

The Whitley family has owned this unit for almost 18 years. Lee was one of the original owner/developers of Harborside Suites. The Whitley family enjoys staying in Beaufort and loves the dining and shopping options but especially taking the water taxis to the outer banks, Rachael Carson Nature Preserve or Cape Lookout lighthouse.

Lee or Dawn Whitley purchased this condo in 2001

Why Lee or Dawn Whitley chose Coastal North Carolina

Unit A, The Big Wahoo is just an incredible property. From the Wahoo tiled on the floor to just sitting on the roof top deck you never tire of watching the boats go by. One of a kind views with a spacious 3 BR and 3 Bath unit in the heart of downtown Beaufort makes this a special place.

The many reviews tell you what you need to know, it is the perfect location to stay in Beaufort.

What makes this condo unique

Sure you can stay in a hotel but why would you when you can have your own private condo with breathtaking views of the waterfront?

While sitting inside on the couch you can watch the boats go by or walk up to the roof top deck and get a panoramic view of the southern outer banks and Rachael Carson Nature preserve. Almost every day you can watch the wild ponies feed in the nature preserve, while sitting inside your beautiful condo.

This is just a special unit, come see for yourself.

We had a blast. The charm of the old building is just as wonderful as the eclectic interior design with the fun artistic nautical tile themes. We had a different wonderful restaurant to hang out at for several meals! I will stay again, Lord willing and have already told many friends about this wonderful home. We were unable to bring our boat due to the winds this trip but it is apparent it will be completely convenient when we are able. We were just behind the dock master and there is a great ramp just down Taylors Creek. We are thankful to the owners for their willingness to share this great location. Look forward to next time!

Wow factor secondary only to total convenience.

  • 5 of 5

I was not sure as we climbed the steps and walked across the tin roof.....but when we walked in the door and looked directly across the beautiful room out to the bay front, I was in love! Everything smelled good and was so clean, and the mosaic flooring was just beautiful. As I drank my coffee the next morning I actually saw a horse on the island, walking along the edge. We enjoyed the roof top and met several people to talk to and hang out with. The easy access to the street was a great touch. Perfect way to end our amazing trip to the Outer banks!

Tax Rate 12.75%

Most guests choose to provide their own towels and linens (king, queen and twin) so the base rental does not include those. My cleaning crew can provide both for an additional $25 per room. I will bill separately if you request linens after your initial booking but please let me know within 72 hours prior to your stay if you need linens. The $49 non refundable security deposit fee provides damage protection insurance for the unit and avoids you having to pay a damage deposit.
