A small cozy cottage style home in a quiet older but peaceful neighborhood with a community boat dock for fishing or crabbing just down the road within walking distance. Emerald Isle Beach is just 5 miles away with it's beautiful beach and great public parking which includes a bathhouse and covered seating if you have had just enough sun. Our little place is equipped with beach chairs and other fun beach equipment so you really don't have to bring anything but yourself.

The space
Heavens Gate Cottage is 1175 Sq ft and equipped with a small kitchen and all the amenities you will need to prepare meals if you decide you want to stay in. The living room and dining room are an open space with WiFi and a Smart TV. There is a screened in back porch for those cooler summer nights to sit out and play cards or just read a book. There is one walk in shower and one bath tub with a shower along with a soaking tub. We also have a wheel chair ramp for easy access.
The front porch is my favorite place to sit with a glass of ice tea, Southern Style of course and just watch the hummingbirds or even the neighbors as they go by. Heavensgate is an older home but it's cozy and inviting and just waiting for you to come for a visit.

Pettiford Road is a much older community with it's own fishing dock and small boat launch off Pettiford Creek . It's a very quiet neighborhood and the neighbors are very friendly and watch out for each other. If you stay at our little place you will find The Golfin Dolphin amusement center and Mac Daddys which has loads of things for the kids to do and even the adults is only a little over a mile away. Emerald Isle Public Beach parking is just over the bridge and only 5.2 miles from the house. I have gotten some feedback stating the beach is further away but if they follow the directions I leave in the book you will find the most beautiful beach access that has everything you might need from bathrooms, showers to volleyball and even life guards in the summer. There is even a covered deck if you have had too much sun. There are other beach accesses but this is our favorite and it is the closest. We also have grocery stores nearby and plenty of great restaurants.
If you enjoy fishing you might when want to book a charter from one of the local fishing shops like Pogeys or any one of the boats in Morehead City.
We also have some great places to put your boats in if you plan on bringing it. This really is a Fishman's paradise.

Mike and I live locally and love living here near our beautiful Emerald Isle. Our Heavens Gate Vacation house came about because we were living in PA and wanted to retire here so we bought this place just as a family vacation home. We now live here as permanent residents of Cape Carteret and could not be happier. Although it says I have been a member since 2016 we are only just now renting it out to others as it seems so sad to see it sitting there without someone enjoying it. I myself sometimes just go over and sit so it doesn't seem so empty. For the most part it has only been family and friends until this August. We are very excited to be able to offer it to others as an affordable place for families to vacation near the beach and will use our funds to make it even better over time. Today, Give a stranger one of your smiles as it may be the only sunshine he sees all day.
