Location Details

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!

  • Wonderful Family Stay


    Our family stayed for the Thanksgiving holidays, and loved every minute of it. Beautiful property, online pics are accurate, secluded for privacy yet close enough to necessities and tourist spots. Property manager was very accessible and very helpful. Plenty of room in the house with lots of amenities and a fully equipped dream kitchen. Loved the sun rises and sunsets from the pier. It was a very peaceful, relaxing getaway for our entire family.

  • Great get away! Beautiful home!


    We had an awesome time! Get away for mature crowd. No stores around., have to go back to Morehead or Beaufort to shop. Great fishing on the dock. Caught a variety of fish. Pathway to dock very muddy— So wear some old shoes Or rain boots to dock. Water on pathway to dock gets very high at high tide. Dock very steady! Enjoyed our trip. Would rent again!

  • Group weekend trip


    In spite of bad weather, we had a wonderful long weekend! Plenty of room to spread out with multiple sitting areas and a fantastic kitchen! June was so responsive and eager to make sure we had what we needed. We would certainly rent this house again in the future!

  • beautiful week in obx at a lovely old home.


    We stayed at this historic home for our annual beach vacation. While not on the beach, it is on the water with amazing views. June(our host) was super helpful and always available if needed.

    As mentioned in previous comments, the master bedroom is attached to the kids loft with no way to separate. You actually have to go thru the master bedroom to get to the stairs to the loft. The other 2 bedrooms are on the other side of the house and offer complete privacy.

    The kitchen is amazing! The fridge could easily hold enough food for a small country!

    We brought our kayaks and actually got to put in 1 day at the house and another at a local spot. there's currently a hurricane off the coast of Florida sending winds and rough water.

    At low tide, there is a small sand bar at the end of the pier...I climbed down and enjoyed it.

    We are usually a laid back family. If staying here, keep in mind this house was built in 1909! If there are issues, talk to June! She checked on us and made sure our week was great!

  • Beautiful , Quiet Marsh Vacation


    This home is set on a beautiful marsh with gorgeous waterfront views. The pier is wonderful for taking pictures and enjoying the marsh. It is a very muddy walk to the pier and the water at the pier is too shallow for boats, but we knew this going in and still enjoyed. June was absolutely wonderful and so kind. We also rented the apartment below to enjoy the privacy of this property-I definitely recommend this. All in all, we really enjoyed our stay.
