Our Oscar was rescued as a young feral cat 10 years ago. He now loves snuggling with us, but is still very wary of strangers. After he quietly and calmly gets used to you, he will love the snuggles with you, too. 

Because he is so skittish, he must stay indoors while we are gone, even though he might want to go out. Apart from keeping him fed, the litter box cleaned out, and the house tidy, there will be plenty of time to visit our fabulous beaches, museums, historical sights, restaurants, the Croatan Forest and Cape Lookout National Seashore. In April, the tourist season won't be too busy, but the weather is beginning to be wonderful. The intracoastal waterway is beginning to fill up with beautiful boats making their pilgrimage northward.

Our house is in a slightly remote area of Eastern NC. There are 11 houses on our street, bordered by woods on one side, and the Intracoastal Waterway on the other. The closest grocery store in Beaufort is 20 minutes away. Atlantic Beach is 35 minutes. I believe a car is a must, because we are not close to major airports, and car rental is extremely expensive these days. The house is two story on stilts, so there are steps. We have a large gourmet kitchen, so cooking for yourself can be fun. 

If you love cats and raw waterfront beauty- bald eagles overhead, dolphins swimming by, fishing from the dock, spectacular sunsets, stargazing,- or just sitting on the deck watching the boat parade go by, our place is for you.

“ Charming NC Hosts - Highly Recommended ”

Flo and Joe had us arrive the night before their departure and prepared a delightful hors d'oeuvre and dinner for us as a "meet and greet" gesture.  This was more than we expected, but just their way of making us feel comfortable and appreciated.

Their waterfront property is post card beautiful, and made the stay most enjoyable.

Oscar the cat, is a bit nervous at first but eventually became a joy to be around.

We highly recommend this wonderful host couple and their property for anyone that wants to enjoy the North Carolina southern outerbanks area.

Where to begin...we arrived to a homemade lunch and fresh flowers from their garden! The views will make you just want to stay. I officially have kitchen envy! Flo and Joe are lively, active and have a wonderful place on the ICW . I felt inspired constantly! 

About 15 miles to the waterfront area in Downtown Beaufort and Morehead City. Harkers island is close where you can catch the ferry to more outer banks. Fort Macon has a lovely beach and is beautiful.  

Oscar the cat warms up quickly, is sweet and easy to care for.

Watching boats and birds all day is entertainment enough if you're at the house. And then sun sets in front of you every night!  We would sit for them again!

Communication was easy and responsive.
