About stefan Krompier

My wife Diana and I recently purchased this beautifully furnished ocean front home. We both work in education and run a small business. Along with our sons Stefan and Ryan we vacationed at this home prior to our purchase. During our stay we fell in love with the home and agreed that there is no place we would rather be.

stefan Krompier purchased this house in 2017

Why stefan Krompier chose Atlantic Beach

We had vacationed many times near the ocean but after vacationing in an ocean front home in Atlantic Beach we new this was the only place we wanted to be. The home's exquisite and nostalgic cottage decor along with the convenience and beauty of being on the beach is an incredible vacation experience. From the porch you see dolphins as well as the sunrise and sunset . You can walk only a few minutes from the home to fantastic ocean front restaurants, ice cream and shopping. We love to visit the historic town Beaufort which is a very short drive from our home. My wife children and I love to fish. We are now only steps away from the beach and a few minute drive to Atlantic Beach and Morehead City charter fishing. There is so much to do in Atlantic Beach and that fact had some influence on us buying this property. The Major influence was the home itself. The incredible time we spent relaxing on the porch and enjoying all the beach had to offer was the main reason we bought this property.

What makes this house unique

Ocean front lower and upper deck-----covered and open. HOT, TUB, NEW GRILL and HOT AND COLD OUTDOOR SHOWER. Private path through the dunes to the ocean (WALK TO BEACH IS UNDER 1 MIN)

Great value, convenient location, and beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

A group of us rented this beach house as part of a work trip for a conference at a nearby hotel. We had 3 nursing babies and 12 adults and we fit perfectly. (As a point of note for parents, we appreciated that there weren't a ton of knickknacks around or things to be careful of crawling babies grabbing for. The house was tidy and pretty while being fairly baby/child-friendly.) The house was clean and bright and is charmingly decorated and organized. After a day of meetings and networking, it was so nice to slip into the hot tub with teammates and listen to the waves crashing, see the stars and constellations clearly overhead, and feel the chilly air on our faces while the steam from the tub kept us warm. We appreciated Stefan's quick responses and his willingness to work with us on our schedule. Personally speaking, I haven't had such a good night of sleep in a long time, and as we all know, comfortable beds are crucial for a true vacation and any kind of relaxation! We would definitely come back for the future and we appreciated the fair pricing.

Some specific small things we noted and liked:

-the mermaid plaque on the back of the house made it easy to find the house again after a long walk on the beach.

-the easy access of the beach was perfect for a quick nip out to the water and back if we forgot something in the house.

-hot tub held 5 adults comfortably

-furniture on the porch makes it nice to relax outside and/or eat a meal outdoors

-private outdoor shower was functional and clean

-kitchen was fully stocked and everything was easy to find

-did we mention beautiful, beautiful views? Hard to beat sunset and sunrise from the same location! (albeit not at the same time ;) )

Some things to note:

-bring your own toilet paper and towels

-parking is best for 4 vehicles, but 5 can be managed if you're good drivers : )

All we missed was a guest book to sign and leave a note of appreciation for the owners and welcome to the next guests! Thanks again to Stefan and to the property managers for being helpful and responsive and on top of everything!

Charming, clean and comfortable beach front home with a hot tub overlooking the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

This property was a perfect choice for our short beach trip. The house was incredibly clean and well maintained. The vintage furniture and modern decor were a charming touch to this ocean front home. The upstairs master bedroom has a king bed that faces the ocean, making for a breathtaking view to wake up to. The master also has a very comfortable bed, comforter, mini bar, fridge, tv, couch, fireplace and a sliding glass door that leads right out to the second floor deck- so you truly have all you need right there in that room. The kitchen was stocked with all the necessary cooking utensils including all the tools you need to use the grill out back. The deck off the main level has plenty of chairs, tables, an outdoor shower, hot tub and a brand new gas burning grill. The house also has its own private path to the beach; a sandy trail lined with palms and other beach vegetation as well as 3 different benches at set at 3 different points along the path, giving you plenty of options to stop, sit, and take in the breathtaking views of the sea. The house is located in a quiet little residential neighborhood just a few minutes drive from dozens of local restaurants, a variety of grocery stores, and several local seafood markets. We were able to run out for breakfast each morning and then again to grab dinner supplies each afternoon, with ease. The location was truly ideal and our host, Stefan, stayed in communication with us to ensure we had a comfortable stay. We appreciated his hospitality, along with the charm of this home and will definitely be back again.
