About the property

4 bedroom oceanfront home - 2 bath

Take yourself back to those childhood trips to the beach in this 4 bedroom, oceanfront home full of old fashion southern charm! This home is equipped with an outside lift to help out with those heavy suitcases...the lift is not designed to be used as an elevator for people. The home has a first floor bedroom with a queen size bed, fully stocked kitchen, dining room and living room with a 42" television. There is a full bathroom on this floor with a brand new, walk-in tiled shower.(2018)

Upstairs has 3 bedrooms. The first bedroom to the right hand side has a King size bed and a twin size bed.

Across the hall is another bedroom with a king size bed and a twin. The other bedroom can be accessed through this bedroom or through a separate door. This room has two twins and is perfect for children. This floor has a full bathroom as well with a large walk in shower with sliding doors.

Oceanside on the back deck is a covered porch and a nice deck for sitting in the sun! There is a high dune with Sea Oat's so the direct ocean view from the porch is limited but just over the dune is paradise! Home is equipped with high speed internet and cable tv.

Owner has an attached downstairs apartment that is not accessible to the main house above. Owner does not live in the residence full time, and may or may not be present while guests are booked upstairs; and will not use any porches or decks, or the beach access for the home.

Good house. Great location. Better service.

  • 5 of 5

Spent Labor Day weekend 2017 with friends + family in this house and had a great time. This house is charming, very well laid out for a medium-large group, and has a terrific location on a great beach. What really set our experience apart was the service provided by Heather, the broker/property manager.

Heather was super responsive leading up to our stay, promptly answering questions and getting paperwork sorted out. But she (and her husband) went above and beyond the first night of our stay. 5pm on Friday of Labor Day weekend and we noticed that the upstairs A/C unit wasn't working, and temps up there were in the mid-80's. Not ideal for adults or kids. After a quick conversation with Heather, her husband arrived 30 minutes later and quickly installed 2 window AC units. Would could have been a major (and weekend threatening) disruption was handled quickly, cheerfully and effectively - the window units kept the upstairs plenty cool the rest of our stay. It was a remarkable example of customer service. If you are a renter, owner or broker - work with Heather if you can! She's fantastic. Now, onto the house.


- Great beach front location (and really terrific stretch of Atlantic Beach), with private boardwalk over dunes

- House also conveniently located in great beach neighborhood, with restaurants/shopping and amenities easily walkable. Amos Mosquitos restaurant only .5 miles away.

- Wonderful covered porch with plenty of rocking chairs and a hammock. We really enjoyed mornings and evenings here.

- Spacious and comfortable living and dining areas

- Comfortable and well appointed rooms; plenty of linens provided

- Functional kitchen and nice Weber charcoal grill


- House is showing it's age a bit in a few places; warped flooring and older kitchen. But perfectly good for a week/weekend at the beach!

- Dunes in front of house block beach view (but also offer a nice wind break)

- The owner of the place has a small apartment in the downstairs of the house, and he may or may not be present. Some might find this arrangement uncomfortable. He was not present during our stay, so I can't speak to it, but I can't see it bothering a laid back group.

Overall, this house has a ton of charm. We loved the location, neighborhood and beach, and can't speak highly enough of the customer service. Looking forward to a return visit in 2018!

Owner's Response: Wow! Thank you SO much for the referral to others on my behalf :) What a wonderful compliment. I always treat my guests as if they were my family...so goodness knows I wouldn't have left y'all sweatin' at the beach! My husband and I work well together as a team. I chose a great life long partner :) Thanks for recognizing him as well. Sea Oats is definitely charming...And yes, it is older, but it's a goody. The owners are good about upkeep and as things break they are replaced with new things. This year it got a new dishwasher...(after y'all left), new carpets in living room, new couches and chairs in living room, new rocking chairs and its about to get some work done on the one side of the house this Oct while the owners are here. Thanks again for the nice review :) Heather

This house was very nice!! The living room/dining area is very spacious, with lots of outside light and plenty of room for everyone to hang out. Older home that has a lot of charm. We stayed a week and enjoyed every minute!!! Bedrooms are plenty big, and there beautiful ocean views from the upstairs windows. Kitchen is a galley type, but plenty big. Could of used more larger pots for cooking, and need a better selection of kitchen utensils. But, other than that, it was OUTSTANDING!!! Would recommend this house to anyone who wants a nice, peaceful vacation on the beach. Heather was outstanding taking care of our needs. We will be back next year!!!

Wonderful, charming, well-appointed beach front house. Loved everything about it...spacious bedrooms, huge deck, wide open family/dining area. Nothing bad to say about it or Atlantic Beach.

overall stay was nice, property is "old school cool", just one hick up during our stay

  • 4 of 5

Stayed 5 days over the weekend in May to enjoy the beach following my military retirement. The property is very cool, you are right on the beach. The porch is huge in the back for entertaining and there is plenty of parking. It is well appointed with blankets and pillows and the kitchen is set up nicely. Only hick-up was that the owner has an apartment in the basement of the property and was planning on staying there for a couple days WHILE we were staying there. I felt a little uncomfortable with that arrangement especially since the rental company and the owner never told us this ahead of time. The rental company representative tried to assist and we effectually spoke to the owner and he agreed to leave the property while we were there. Just seemed weird to us. Overall great stay, great location, and would recommend in the future.

Owner's Response: Jason, So glad you enjoyed Sea Oats and your special vacation to celebrate your military retirement. Your family was so nice! Thank you for saying you would come back again and recommend it to others :) Yes, I apologize for that hiccup with the owner apartment. It was definitely a surprise for all of us. There was some miscommunication about when we were going to begin marketing the home as an upstairs/downstairs duplex situation. The owner was nice enough to understand and did thankfully move out that very evening. Thank you for being patient with me while I did the very best I could to handle that situation! It won't happen again because we gave all the previously booked rentals the option on the owner staying below, and we now market the home as a duplex situation. :)Heather

Long Relaxing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Awesome beach front retreat with all the comforts of home---, We four adults had a long weekend in this incredibly comfortable beach front house. Living and sleeping accommodations were all we could hope for. The house was spotless clean and everything worked. The beach-side deck was great at night and during the day with plenty of sun or shade as desired. The house is convenient to attractions and restaurants, , and less than 100 yards from the deck to the beach. WE could bicycle almost anywhere. We'll be back!
