Dog-Friendly Waterfront House w/ Shared Pool, Private Boat Dock, & Washer/Dryer

Lucky are the few who will get to stay in beautiful sound front, Second Star to the Right. This home has enticed visitors and neighbors for years with its perfect waterfront cul de sac location. It was, however, always an exclusive private home - a Neverland to renters - until now. The ground level has an outdoor shower, fish station, boat dock with seating, hammock, and a rare private boat ramp. Kayak, stand up surf, windsurf, or fish off your private dock. The large first living level opens into a panorama of windows that catch some of the island's best sunsets. Comfortable resort furniture offers the perfect perch to view the entertainment center with a large flatscreen TV/DVD and listen to the stereo. A large modern kitchen with a huge granite breakfast bar and stainless appliances will bring out the best in all recipes and their cooks. An extra-large waterfront dining area has postcard views. Second Star to the Right has a landing-field-size furnished sundeck. The first-floor bedroom has waterfront deck access, and the neighboring full bathroom boasts a large soaking tub and a premium shower stall.

The large second-level great room with tall ceilings has a wet bar, comfy resort furniture, Romeo sundeck, flatscreen TV/DVD, and an extraordinary view of the water, wetlands, and sunsets. Both upstairs bedrooms have water views. The kids won't take long to find the upstairs furnished loft area - accessible by a built-in ladder. A large hall bathroom with a tub and separate shower is convenient for all. Second Star to the Right also has a full laundry room on this level.

Lost boys, girls, and adults will find the vacation home they have always dreamed of at sound front Second Star to the Right.

Loved a water view from every room. And rooms were spacious and bright. The sunsets could not have been prettier. The main bathroom was clean and modern.
Amanda B. Nov 2022
Back porch was awesome! Lots of space inside. Loved being on the sound. No coffee pot, despite one displayed in the kitchen pics. We bought one and left it. The shower door on the upstairs shower was broken when we arrived. I messaged and emailed and got no response during our stay. Additionally, one of the pocket doors for one of the rooms upstairs was totally off the track and would not close, when we arrived. I found the assembly for the track on one of the bookshelves.

We had a wonderful stay at this house lots of room for our family having the separate upstairs space was great for out kids. Great sound access with lots of room to fish right at the house.

Great house great location!! Thoroughly enjoyed our visit especially with bringing our dogs. House was comfortable and huge. Had everything we needed
Amanda K. Jul 2022
The home was very spacious for two small families and had a great view of the Sound. However, we did have a few issues. When we arrived at the home, it had not been cleaned, although Vacasa staff had told us it was ready. A cleaning crew was sent over once we called and complained. We also had to call an exterminator due to a bug infestation. Small tiny bugs, possibly mites, were found on the furniture and all over the dock. The deck, porch, and stairs need to be updated, as well. The wood is very old and worn. Kids and adults got splinters. Other than these issues it was a good house.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Amanda, we're so glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for sharing your feedback and bringing some items to our attention that may need some TLC. We have forwarded your feedback to the local staff so they can work to improve the house for future guests. Please know that our guest services team is available 24 hours a day to assist should any concerns arise during your visit. We hope you choose to stay with us again.

Second Star has a fantastic sunset view west over the Pamlico Sound, a private dock, a boat launch ramp, an outdoor shower, comfortable indoor furnishings and a huge, well-appointed kitchen. The neighbors are great. The location for watersports, such as windsurfing and kiteboarding, is good. However, there is no under-house parking and very little storage. The driveway is not level and difficult to navigate when backing in. The walkway along the water has some loose boards, so be careful. The front door is not sheltered and rain pours off the roof onto your head while you're standing there fiddling with the keys and the doorknob. Inside, there are two nice bathrooms. Neither of them is en suite, even in the master. Sliding pocket doors throughout the house are a little tricky to deal with. Overall, the house is a good value, but management needs to fix the loose boards immediately. Long-term, the owners should think about releveling the driveway and maybe removing some of the over-engineered foundation timbers to make room for under-house parking, storage and an entrance sheltered from the weather.
Manager response:
Hi, Kevin! Maintenance is taking care of the loose boards. Thank you for bringing them to our attention!

We vacation here every year! Can't do justice to watching the awesome sun sets over the sound from the rear deck. This is the pre-show to the beautiful stars! House includes dock, boat slip, AND private boat ramp for anyone wishing to bring their own boat and fish the sound. Caught tons of fish and crabs from the dock. Inside everything was clean and extremely comfortable. There is no pool but swimming off the dock is aways fun.

Spacious interior for 6. Missing hot tub. Rained a lot and would have been nice to have covered porch.
