    A memorable getaway awaits you at this 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom vacation rental apartment inside ‘The Smithonia By The Sea Vacation Rentals and Events Home,’ a large home nestled beside the Core Sound and Outer Banks of Marshallberg. With spacious decks, a fully equipped kitchen, and splendid water views, this lovely home ensures a relaxing stay!

    -- THE PROPERTY --

    Bedroom: Full Bed | Living Room: 2 Sofas (Not Pullout)

    Tranquility greets you as you wind up the driveway, past the white picket fence and beautiful trees, and up to the large 4,000 square foot home. Built in 1905 and restored in 2009-2010, the artfully decorated ‘Smithonia By The Sea Vacation Rentals and Events House' has 2 guest quarters to choose from, and this particular downstairs guest house boasts sleeping accommodations for up to 4 guests in 1,000 square feet of comfortable living space.

    The cozy living area features plush couches, a flat-screen TV, and access to the spacious outdoor deck. With beautiful views of the land leading up to the Outer Banks, the deck will quickly become your favorite place to sip your morning coffee or evening cocktail while enjoying the scenery.

    The chef of the group will delight in the kitchen, fully equipped with everything you need to prepare tasty recipes. Pull up a bar stool to the high dining table to enjoy your meals with your loved ones.

    If you prefer an al fresco dining experience, step out onto the deck for fresh air and beautiful views. Stroll out into the spacious yard until you reach the walk bridge, which leads to one of the longest private fishing piers in the water downeast.

    Stay by the water’s edge and fish off of the dock, shared with the other rental on the property. View nature’s wildlife in and out of the water or rent one of the kayaks to take out on the sparkling waters.

    When it’s time to call it a night, make your way back inside to curl up in the plush full-sized bed, which promises a peaceful slumber.

    -- THE LOCATION --

    This Premier Estate Home is not only situated on 2.5 acres right on the Outer Banks and Core Sound, but it is also ideally located within minutes of endless attractions!

    Imagine retracing Black Beard the Pirate’s footsteps, just as the National Geographic have done in film and TV documentaries. A must-see is the Maritime Museum in Historic Downtown Beaufort, a mere 20-minute drive from your ‘Smithonia By The Sea Vacation Rentals and Events’ designation. The museum is accredited for their numerous contributions in the research of local maritime and downtown Beaufort history and the Crystal Coast area.

    There are many local activities, sites, and tastes that you must experience while you are staying at ‘Smithonia By The Sea.’ The coastal area has some of the finest fresh caught seafood in the world, such as fresh tuna, mahi-mahi, flounder, oysters, green tailed shrimp and scallop - all available in the many five-star local seafood restaurants. As a bonus while staying at ‘Smithonia By The Sea,’ you can fish, crab, and gather oysters and clams right from the property’s dock, shared with the other rental in the house.

    If boating is your thing, you can visit the Cape Lookout Lighthouse or Shackleford Banks with their wild horses at your leisure, which is just a 20-minute boat ride away. You can pack a picnic lunch and spend the day exploring the Lighthouse or pick up shells on the beach, where both the sound side and oceanside is accessible for fun in the sun and surf. Bicycle and kayak rentals are also available at the property for leisurely fun and exercise while you explore and enjoy the sites.

    From the home, you’re also just 1 mile from the local boat ramp in Marshallberg and 3 miles to a newer multiple boat use ramp with ample parking at Harker’s Island. Outdoor activities abound on the Crystal Coast of North Carolina, including fishing, swimming, horseback riding, boating, kayaking, and surfing.

    Throughout the year, there are also many festivals in the area, so be sure to check your calendar to see if there’s a festival during your visit, including Downeast Seafood Festival, Black Beard Pirate Invasion, Big Rock Festival, the Decoy Festival at Harkers Island and more!

    Relaxation at its best

    Reviewed by: Jennifer K. on


    Property was clean and as described. Communication was excellent. Had a very nice, relaxing vacation. Waking up to the quiet neighborhood and able to walk out to the deck and watch the water was heaven. Thank you, we will be back.

    Overwhelmed By The Mold

    Reviewed by: Dana M. on


    The place is infested with mold. We didn't even stay the first night. The apartment was infested with small biting flies too. The photos in the listing are accurate. The kitchen and bath were well appointed with everything you'd ever need. We were told to turn off one of the portable air conditioners if we needed to use a hair drier or blender because the circuit would short out. The portable air conditioners were very, very loud. The property manager/owner was very nice.

    Wonderful dock & location exceeded expectations

    Reviewed by: Lisa M. on


    If you love water, you will love this dock overhanging the Pamlico Sound. We ended every evening there with ocean breezes. The apartment was very large, clean and well appointed with cooking supplies and even toiletries. The manager was very prompt in answering questions. Room For improvement: one full size bed although the bedroom could easily accommodate a king-size, no thermostat control in the apartment and it got warm, (we asked the vacationers upstairs in the rented home to lower the thermostat at their departure). couches need replacing as one average size human sinks low.

    Go for the view.

    Reviewed by: Susanne and David T. on


    The contact person is helpful and kind. The apartment was very clean. No corner left uncared for. Exceptional clean for a rental. The view from the rear deck is beautiful. Although parts of our trip was stormy we did manage to walk to the end of the pier and enjoy the calm of the waves lapping the shore. The living and dinning room area is large and well equipped. The downside to the unit was the size of the bed. Very cozy full size was a difficult sleep if you?re use to a king. There is another unit upstairs, although our neighbors were very friendly and took great care to share the common area of the deck and pier expect that typical sounds of apartment living. I?m sure they were not roller skating at midnight even though for a second I thought they had to be. The yard was marsh like and damp but I didn?t find that to be an issue. Overall we had a very nice stay. We enjoyed a few meals prepared in the well appointed kitchen , some tv during the rain and the views once it cleared from the storm. There were several birds feeding nearby and their songs could be heard clearly. Very wildlife friendly setting. Awesome view and it was a comfortable stay

    We loved the Marshallberg apt!

    Reviewed by: Allison B. on


    The Marshallberg apt was perfect! It definitely exceeded our expectations & had everything we needed. We loved the dock that was on the property, and enjoyed it we early morning coffee and evening cocktails. It was great to drop the kayaks in the water off the dock and paddle to close by islands! The house was so cozy, comfortable, and close to local beaches and stores. Joan Robinson definitely made us feel at home, and was extremely helpful and kind. She was quick to respond to any questions we had & she made our vacation all the more better. We can?t wait to come back for another stay!!

    A beautiful historic home with outstanding views!

    Reviewed by: Julie H. on


    We had a wonderful time staying in this lovely home! The sunsets were nice, and my kids flew a big kite most days (from the neighbors yard actually because the rental property was too wet). Our only disappointment was not being able to dock our boat, it was too shallow and the boat spot needs to be dug out

    Family vacation

    Reviewed by: Debb C. on


    We book this lovely home for a family vacation to celebrate my mothers 70th birthday and had a lovely stay. June was very responsive and helpful with all our questions. We had hoped to utilize the kayaks but the weather wasn't really well suited so we enjoyed bike rides instead. We had multiple families in the house and never felt crowed, this is a spacious, lovely, comfortable home. Reviewer location Norman
