About

Welcome to Harper House, a lovely 3BR home with fantastic ocean views on the 4x4 beach. The wide beach and close beach access make this North Swan home an easy choice! Located on the second row with no oceanfront home directly in front, Harper House views and sounds of the surf come right into the living room! The heavenly breezes will whoosh all of your cares away and relax your soul. The owners of this home love the minimalist approach and it shows in the outfitting of every room. The Ocean is the main focal point from both levels. There IS a tv for the diehard.... but there are no other screens to divert your attention from the focus of the Atlantic Ocean and your family.

Level one has a keyless entry which makes life so much easier! No keys to find or lose!
On level two there is a queen master bedroom with a gorgeous master bath and huge private deck. The other two bedrooms on level two share a hallway bath and are a queen in one, and two twins in the other. Linens and towels are provided.
On level three you will find a wide open kitchen with very comfortable and inviting island seating, leather sofas, the lone smart TV connected to satellite and a huge dining room table. Expansive wrap around decks invite you to partake in a sun drenched south exposure or the more relaxed ocean side covered porch. The teak outside dining table will invite you to picnic while listening to the pounding surf. The fact that there are no homes between you and the ocean makes Harper House a delightful way to reconnect with nature. The ocean views will delight you with dolphins, pelicans, shore birds and surf, while the occasional fox or wild horse will top off the back to basics feeling that Harper House provides. The ocean is calling.. come experience it in full at Harper House.

Saturday Check in - 4 Wheel Drive Required - Linens and Towels provided - located approximately 7 miles up the 4x4 beach - NO pets. Parking passes for parking two cars on the beach are included with this home. Parking at the house is free and unlimited. There is No Pool or Hot Tub at this home.

This is a fairly new home and the photos online don’t do it justice. The house is absolutely beautiful and the views are amazing; beach view and sunset views. Beautiful hardwood floors. We love that the house decor is minimal because it’s less dust to accumulate on decor sitting around. The kitchen was well stocked. The carpets were vacuumed but the floors (especially the bathroom floors and kitchen) were not cleaned. Hair, sand, dirt were clearly visible.

I would suggest blinds for the upstairs windows in the kitchen and dining room only because when the sun is setting, it’s very blinding and you cannot even sit in the room or prepare a meal because it’s so blinding. We love all the open window concept but blinds in those windows would cut down on the intense glare. I would also suggest bigger wine glasses. Other than that, the house was perfect for us and we enjoyed it.

Manager's Response

So glad you enjoyed the Harper House. It is a nice spot with meticulous owners. I'll make sure to give them your feedback on the blinds for the living room.

I wish you had called us on the lack of clean floors. That is NOT something that should've been missed and this cleaner is very thorough. So obviously it was missed. Next time give us a call so we can call them back.

Thanks!!

Harper house was great and easy to get to once you've figured out the tide cycles. The entire family loved the house and open layout. Horses were very abundant and often came right up to the house. We would recommend this house to any family or small get together, you'll have a great time.

Manager's Response

The way in can be uncomfortable the first time, unless you are familiar with sand driving. But after that first trip, it becomes old hat!!!

We love Harper house for it's fantastic views as well as the easy living available there.

We hope you will consider a repeat stay. Thanks for your nice review!

My family had a great vacation at this property! This house was perfect for my family of 5: my husband and I and our 9, 6, and 4 year old. When we arrived, we were all very happy with the accommodations. Everything was clean and ready for us to unpack and relax.

Manager's Response

We're so glad you found Harper House a good fit for your family. This home has quite a little following already, as it is just the right size for a small family or even one couple. The views from the decks, the covered porches, the fantastic kitchen.. all add up to a nice spot for a vacation. Watching a storm roll in from the living room is an experience that is hard to beat. Nothing but WINDOWS, but covered by the porch roof. You can actually sit outside during a storm and be one with the nature, listening to the rain, the waves and the wind. What a cool place.

So glad you all enjoyed your stay.

We all loved the house and the beach and wildlife. For the cost of the rental I did expect the owners to provide more basic necessities such as salt and paper, olive oil, laundry detergent, and more toilet paper, etc.

Manager's Response

Thanks for your review. I understand your thought about each home having some basics. Unfortunately, we can only leave items if they are new and unopened. We do not provide the other items you mentioned, mostly because the replenishment would be difficult to accomplish on a weekly basis.


I hope you enjoyed your stay.

Thanks!

Wonderful cottage close to beach with nice view. Cottage feels brand new with beautiful kitchen, comfy beds, and 2 wrap around decks. Kitchen has everything you need, and we saw horses near the cottage every morning, as well as on the beach on a few occasions.

Best vacation ever.

Thank you Laura for letting us stay in your beautiful house. The view of the the ocean at sunrise and sun set was incredible. The wild horses were so beautiful to see come right up to our house. The adventure of driving down the beach in order to get to the house is so much fun. We loved every minute and did not eat to leave. I will 100% recommend this house to friends and family. We will also be back for a second vacation. Peaceful and relaxing vacation.

The house was absolutely beautiful. The location to the ocean was very close. It rained one day, but you can just look out the massive windows and doors and see the ocean. The porches had plenty of sitting space. The kitchen had very nice dishes and cookware. The floors are beautiful. Loved this house and it’s location. We definitely will be back. The house was very clean. I highly recommend this house, Laura from the management team was very helpful and friendly.

Manager's Response

THANKS so much for your nice words. Harper House is such a nice home with great views of that ocean. And the porches beckon!!! I hope you will come back and sit a spell!

My husband and I travelled to the Outer Banks in early September 2021. We had the best vacation. The Harper house was brand new, clean and beautiful. The views of the ocean and other homes on the dunes were stunning. Every morning we woke up to a beautiful sunrise and wild horses in our yard. We would recommend this home/vacation spot.

Wonderful house fitted with all the amenities you need to have an incredible vacation. The keyless entry was very convenient, we had horses in the yard and on the beach daily. Truly a magical place, surrounded by pristine beaches. You most definitely need a 4WD vehicle to access the house, but the drive on the beach is well worth it! Hoping we can return soon to this house. It isn’t beachfront, but you have amazing views of the ocean, and you drive your vehicle right onto the beach, so there’s no lugging gear every time you want to go to the beach. And if you want to walk to the beach, access is just one house away. Highly recommend the Harper House!!
