About the property

4 bedroom/3 bath oceanfront home with add'l private outdoor shower room

You and all of your friends and/or family deserve a vacation at "CONCHED OUT ON SQUID ROE". Wake up to the sound of the crashing waves and the smell of the salt air. Step from the huge deck and get sand between your toes. Bathe under the sun in the fully enclosed outdoor private shower with separate dressing area. Clean the fish you caught in the ocean at the outdoor fish sink. Walk to town for shopping or to nosh at the awesome restaurants. Cook up a seafood dinner in the fully loaded gourmet open air kitchen with induction stove, double ovens and warming drawer. Take an afternoon nap on the couch as you look out thru the wall of glass doors at the blue sea. Retreat to the downstairs 2nd family room for some quiet time. Also perfect for multi-family vacations; space for everyone.

The upper level that has the wall of glass french doors looking out onto the ocean is the main living area which is open concept: living area, kitchen (wash dishes as you watch dolphins!) and dining. The master bedroom is to the left of the main living area and the two upstairs bedrooms are to the right of the living area with a bathroom in between those two rooms. One of those rooms has a twin over queen bunk (sleeps 3) and the other room has two separate twin bunks to sleep four. Downstairs is another completely separate full sized living area with wet bar, wall to wall stocked library, full bath and family bunk room (queen bed, and a twin over queen bunk, room sleeps 5). It's nice if you're traveling with another family or multi-generational because everybody can find private space when needed, and then gather in the main living area or expansive oceanfront deck when wanting to socialize.

About Nicole Hudspeth

Hi, I'm a soon to be retiring military officer and mother to three amazing children: an academically gifted, a intellectually disabled, and just a plain old dude. God has a great sense of humor, and I'm doing my best to find the laughter on this journey. I am currently stationed in Hawaii finishing out my career in the Marine Corps, not sure exactly where we'll end up. Believe it or not, the magic of this house and it's location competes with the allure we're experiencing in Hawaii, making it a tough decision!

The kids and I spent 6 glorious years in this house and we're so excited to be able to share it with you.

Nicole Hudspeth purchased this house in 2008

VERY well-furnished and decorated home with great view & natural light

  • 5 of 5

This house is designed perfectly. You enter on the upper level into a large open room, with the kitchen on the street side and the living room on the beach side. The kitchen is well-stocked and has high-end appliances. (Note that there is a sort of unusual dual compartment dishwasher, and it is designed to use only powdered detergent, so you will want to have some of that.) The deck is unusual in that it almost sits atop the crest of the dune. It's like looking out over a front yard and seeing the ocean. While we were there, the surf did come up very close to the dune & stairs at high tide.

Overall, I was very impressed with this house, and would certainly return.

This house is adorable and the space is used super efficiently! View from back porch is gorgeous. We had a wonderful time and would recommend this place to anyone, especially families.

Great place ... needs a little TLC

  • 3 of 5

Loved (I mean loved) the layout of the upstairs and accessibility to the water. While high tide was up close to the stairs, there was always more than enough room to spread out, set-up pop-ups, etc.

This is a GREAT place for a multiple/large families .... there are like 14 beds !

Only reason I gave a 3-star versus 4 is the overall condition of the place. General cleanliness was an issue. Lots of fixtures around and in the house need repair, overgrowth of flora and current state of outdoor deck area/children's play set is not well represented in the photos on Home Away, kitchen appliances need a good scrub as do all the utensils. I think the photos are 2-3 years old.... the place just needs some serious attention at this price point.

No issues with the owner (Nicole, thank you for your service) as she addressed all our concerns quickly and without any intrusion.

We would rent again, but only if the place was given the attention it needs.

Nice house but needs maintenance

  • 3 of 5

Wonderful layout and nice upgrades have been made. Door knobs, nails in decking, and refrigerator need maintenance. Playground is not safe for children.

Beautiful, comfortable, peaceful refuge on one of the prettiest beaches in NC.

  • 5 of 5

This is such a sweet house on a really gorgeous, uncrowded stretch of surf and sand. The interior is comfortable, homey and tastefully decorated, the exterior is all you could want for a beach retreat: a porch to sip coffee on, a stunning view, the waves just a few steps away, soft sand, interesting sea treasures, and a warm outdoor shower to wash away the sand and salt before coming back inside. We are already planning our return trip to this little piece of paradise.
