About Eddie Griggs
I am a 8th generation native to the area. My families history is deeply rooted in the land. I love this area and would never want to live anywhere else. I enjoy sharing local history and knowledge with those that are interested. I spend a lot of time outdoors at The Garden caring for this place. My desire is to see those that visit here enjoy the peace and beauty of it as much as I do.
Eddie Griggs purchased this House in 2013
Why Eddie Griggs chose Harbinger
The acquisition of this property in 2013 allowed me to put the John Melson family farm back together again. The farm was divided into 3 pieces in 1955. I obtained the middle piece in 1979 , and the south piece in 2012. What had been divided into 3 became 1 again.

Absolutely beautiful home and property! Perfect for getting away from the stress of life. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. Hot tub was a great perk. Perfect for relaxing. Enjoyed s'mores and bonfire one night. Would definitely stay again.
Heaven on Earth
It's hard to find words that do justice to this awesome vacation retreat. You just couldn't ask for more--kayaking, blueberry picking, exploring the grounds, enjoying the wildlife, playing croquet or cornhole, and then relaxing at night in the hot tub or making memories around the fire pit while listening to the beautiful sounds of nature. The house itself is
spectacularly clean and comfy, stocked with any and everything you could possibly want.
Eddie and Sibbie are wonderful, gracious hosts, there at a moment's notice should you need or want anything. Sound too good to be true? This place really is AND you're in
close proximity to anything the OBX has to offer. We will definitely return as often as we can!
The house and property were beyond excellent. Loved every second of our visit!
Two adventures, 1 vacation: Exploring expansive country property and the nearby beach!
Loved it! Couldn't have had better hospitality, house, land and beach opportunities! Picked blueberries, net fished, enjoyed beautiful Kitty Hawk beach (easy drive w/ free parking...just steps away from public beach access), made smores, and relaxed in hot tub...all in a single day! So much more to do like kayaking, wildlife spotting, water park adventure, and great beach restaurants like Steamers (seafood) and Southern Shores Pizza. Be prepared to be delighted by the owners' truly amazing land they share with you. The house is big, kitchen has a great set up, the screened in porch features a Nags Head Hammock Swing, and tons of household items available for use like bikes, cornhole, nets, etc. We would definitely stay again in the future!
PS I write this review based solely on our time there and having not known the owners prior to our vacation.
best of both worlds
We had a great vacation at this house! 32 acres of quiet was very peaceful and relaxing. So much to do at the house... hot tub, fire pit, kayaks, cornhole, picking blueberries, riding bikes, plus a ton of space to throw a baseball or frisbee. Screened in porch with a porch swing was perfect for morning coffee watching the birds play and rabbits run. Our kids shared a huge room and they each had their own bed. Master bedroom is large and relaxing as well. Large kitchen and loved the dinner table right off the kitchen. Screened in porch also has a table & chairs for eating and relaxing.
All that fun at the house and then you're only 10-15 minutes away from all the activity on the island, so this was the best of both worlds for us. Beaches, restaurants, mini-golf, movie theater, grocery store and so much more are all nearby.
Our first day at the house we were already talking about coming back again. Eddie and Sibbie were such gracious hosts. Quick replies to any questions before and during our visit. Thank you for a wonderful week!
A home away from home
Private. Close to OBX.
The property is located just a few miles from the beach. This property is not meant for those that want the convenience of walking to the beach, but is more suited for those that want privacy and peacefulness on their vacation while still having easy access to the popular tourist attractions of the Outer Banks.
