THE SOUND AND NEIGHBORS
Our sound access is directly behind our house. The path is obvious. Enjoy. Mosquitos are here, bring bug spray.
We have resident neighbors to the North and South. On the sound front, the pilings behind our house define the northern most property line. The north of the pilings where the rock wall is, is our North neighbor, he owns from the rock wall on the sound to the ocean. He owns North Beach campground and stores campers and such on the sound side and is not fond of trespassers. Our sound front property is 40 feet from the pilings toward the south. The picture in airbnb of the sound beach is a good representation of the property line. Our southern neighbors are lovely, they like to access their part of the sound beach. Overall respect our neighbors and all is well and everyone is happy. The sound and path can get really mucky if there is a lot of rain. There are muck boots hanging on the small landing out front for all too use.
You have access to the ocean thru the street directly across from our driveway. It says “Private Road”. You have access on foot, bike or in a car.
We have 1 dog. Her name is Minnow and she is very mild mannered sweet girl. She does have an njured recovering knee. Please refrain from throwing a ball or frisbee or any thing with her. She will want too and so will you, but please don’t.
The apt is stocked with various natures’ miracle products for various issues and towels to manage events. There is also a steam carpet cleaner available if needed. Please remediate any accident that happens as soon as possible. If you leave your pet in the apt without supervision please crate them. There is a large crate folded up in the master bedroom closet if needed. Please rinse and dry your pets as much as possible if they have been in the sound or ocean. There are towels in the Master closet for pet use. If you use them and need them laundered text me and leave them outside by the South side stairs.
The North and South neighbors all have dogs. They all tend to mind their own business. Keep your animals under control and in the yard. I poop scoop a couple of times a week. The poop scoop is out front, please pick up your dogs poo. I have plastic grocery bags hanging near the pooper scooper. Just toss it in the trash cans.
BIKES AND BEACH CHAIRS
We have 4 house bikes and various beach chairs for you to use. The bikes are nothing fancy, just beach bikes sometimes a little rusty. They stay outside under the apt landing stairs. If any tires are flat alert me, there is a pump. The chairs are under the apt entrance stairs, please put them back and spray them down after use. DO NOT RIDE BIKES ON BEACH. Our sand is too soft for beach riding unless you have a special bike with very large tires.
There are green platic 6 yard chairs. Feel free to take them back to the sound to watch the sunsets. Do not leave the chairs on the beach. Pull them up and put them on the path if you do not want to bring them back up to the house.
There is a close line next to the shower/storage area on the piling. There are various hooks around on different pilings to hook to if a close line is desired. Clothes pins are hanging under the closeline.
Sonos is a wireless speaker system. The speaker is on the side table to the right of the couch. If you push the play button you get whatever channel I have set up at the time. If you would like to choose your own channel you will need to download the Sonos app too your phone. You will “connect to an existing system”. You will then have access while you are here. “Apartment” is your speaker. I have Pandora and Calm Radio you can use and add stations as desired. There is also a regular little Sony stereo under the side table to the left of the couch.
Please do not smoke in the house and Please dispose of your butts outside in the “smokers outpost”.
Please keep it down after 11pm. Just be reasonable. Likely you will be pooped from having fun in the sun and salt!

I love where I live. I am an acupuncturist. I live in the upstairs of the house. The apartment is in the lowest level. I hugely value where I live and invite you to enjoy!
I have 1 yellow lab named Minnow and a inside cat named Beaker. You won't see the cat. Minnow is very friendly and you won't likely see Beaker.
Living on this island is like living in the middle of the ocean. Sunrises to the east over the Atlantic ocean, sunsets to the west over the Pamlico sound. We are surrounded by natures perfection and grace from all directions.
BEST THING EVER.
Wind and Waves are here all year long.
Love what you do, and do what you love.
Hope to see you!
