Vacation Rentals is a family oriented business with
several completely furnished private rentals ....
nestled among shady pines and oaks overlooking Westmouth
Bay on the marshy north shore of Harkers Island.
Here you can experience Harkers Island as it was
decades ago, with the old wooden boats, shrimp trawls
and fish nets. The old boathouse (used from 1970-1986)
still stands on the property where Mr. Rose built
custom-style Harkers Island boats (see
Boatworks album). The old marine railways is
near the boathouse and is still in use as needed.
Fragrant mimosa trees that blossom primarily in
June-July are located all throughout the rental
property, along with pines and oaks. The "bull
pen" (a small 12 ft. square building) out near
the harbor is a favorite place for the men to gather,
"shoot the bull" (hence its name), and
exchange opinions on politics and events of the
through December 6
Pets are allowed inside units. Pets are permitted
outside on a leash. If pet carriers are brought,
they need to be outside on the porch. Dogs that
bark through the night and keep other guests awake
will not be permitted to be brought back for future
Drugs, etc ...
we permit alcohol consumption, we DO NOT
sell alcoholic beverages on premises, nor do we
permit drunkenness or obnoxious behavior. Also -
No drug use, abuse or wild partying. We prefer that
those with aberrant (or perverted) sexual lifestyles
find lodging elsewhere: this is a family setting.
We ask that you dress appropriately. Bikinis for
women and men is not fit attire around children.
Save Down East ...
the recent year developers have been encroaching
(like vultures), seeking to destroy that which we've
held dear for so long. If you have ever been to
Harkers Island and like our unique community (especially
the way it "has been in the past"), we
plead with you to help Down East face this onslaught
of developers in the years ahead. One way of helping
would be to write the Carteret County Planning Board
and voice your opinion on this matter.
Many folks come to this area because it is different.
Failure to maintain this uniqueness could be suicide
for the tourist industry of our County which caters
to those who make repeat yearly weekend or weekly
visits. Over development could contaminate our pristine
waters and not only adversely affect local commercial
fishermen (who depend on it for their livelihood),
but also prove detrimental to recreational fishermen
make your opinion known however and whenever necessary
because further threats to our way of life are imminent.
you for your time
