Located in a secluded island oasis on the Roanoke Sound, Captain’s Quarters offers some of the most spectacular water views in OBX. Nestled in the world-class gated marina resort of Pirate’s Cove – the “Venice of the Outer Banks” as the owners like to call it – the condo is perched on a point with panoramic scenes of breathtaking beauty. Wake up to the sunrise over the sound and watch the day unfold as boats, and even frequent dolphin pods, sail right past the building. Right in Pirates Cove, and just steps from the front door, is one of the best sunset viewing spots on the sound.
Owned by a retired USCG Captain and his family, the luxurious Captain’s Quarters condominium is remodeled with all the upgrades, and with an elevator that makes unloading a breeze. Whether you are vacationing or simply enjoying the laid-back coastal vibe while you work remotely (or both!), Captain’s Quarters has all the ingredients for a relaxing stay, replete with abundant resort amenities. Short (3-day min.) and long term stays welcome.
The unit features a primary bedroom overlooking the sound with a queen bed, ensuite bath, private porch access, a full-size desk, and a 43” TV (check the closet for sports equipment!). The second bedroom has a queen bed, 43” TV, and direct access to the second bath. The family room features a sleeper sofa, 50” TV, and a board game collection.
A 5-minute drive takes you to two free public beach accesses - including Nags Head’s Jennette’s Pier with its 1,000-foot fishing pier, wide sandy beaches, ample parking, and new public bath house. The Cape Hatteras National Seashore (don’t miss the lighthouse!), Pea Island, Coquina Beach, and Oregon Inlet are just a few other nearby destinations.
Bring your boat (designated 25’ boat slip included), kayak, or jet ski; fish and crab from the docks; book a fishing charter or sunset cruise from the marina; and join in on the fun of watching Gulf Stream fishing charters unload their daily catches. Stroll miles of boardwalk along the canals and enjoy the wildlife. Relax at the community pool complex with its sparkling pool, baby pool, hot tub, snack bar, and clubhouse with pool table and game room. Let the day slip away as you watch the boats go by right from your deck and from along the many canals that wind through the resort. Grab a meal at the marina restaurant (open year-round) or catch live music and a drink at the outdoor tiki bar – or simply enjoy a book, a cup of coffee, or a happy hour drink on the covered front and back porches. There’s so much to do without even leaving the resort!
