Ideal Front Street Water View Location In Scenic Beaufort!


Property Details

Updated: Sep 26, 2016
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 $25 per room during payment or feel free to add the service by emailing or calling and you can be billed separately.

Pull the trigger if you're considering this rental! Awesome views from inside and even better from the rooftop deck. Very nice and comfortable condo right in the heart of it all. Owners were great to work with and very responsive. Will definitely book another stay in the future!

What a view, especially from the roof top deck

  • 5 of 5

The condo is in a perfect location in the center of town, close to everything. Condo was very clean and has a very eclectic decor. Unique tile floors and showers. This place is wonderful and Lee the owner was very accommodating for our last minute reservations. We can't wait to come back!

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!

Lee & Dawn,

Just wanted to say we had the BEST time staying in your rental on Front Street. We came in for a Great friends wedding at Cape Lookout. We arrived and was so impressed with the unit! We loved being in Beaufort and right where its all happening! You made our stay so comfortable and so convenient to all the shopping and great places to eat. I would recommend this to ANYONE! And we will definitely be back!

Thanks Again!

Dawn & Duncan Whitehead

Amazing view. Perfect location.

  • 4 of 5

Amazing view of the marina at Front Street in Beaufort from the large expanse of windows. Perfect location just down a flight of stairs to get to shops, restaurants, museums, the boardwalk. There are spectacular tile murals in all 3 bathrooms and in the living area. Some of the furnishings (big "slide-y" uncomfortable sofa, lumpy queen bed and its funky pillows, some knocked about hand-me-down furniture) detract from just how - amazing, perfect, spectacular - this place really could be.

Fantastic location, Fantastic owners.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay on Front St. Lee and Dawn have a great place to get to know the area. We were in the area to determine if if we wanted relocate to Carteret County. The location was everything we needed.

This location would be perfect for a couple or couples get away. Also good for parents of older children. It wouldn't be my first choice for parents of toddlers and small kids. Stairs aren't the most kid friendly options and there's no gate to keep them away (not that we found anyway).

Having three bathrooms would come in handy for groups. Plenty of seating both casual and for eating. The rooftop deck offers amazing sunset views.

Additional information about rental rates

Property Damage Protection $59
Pet Fee $60 + Tax
cleaning fee $90 + Tax
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.

From the Owner

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.
