Pelican Watch delivers picture perfect views of the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW). It is a single floor home with a split floor plan located directly on the ICW in the Sea Gate Community on a beautifully landscaped lot offering privacy. It gives the feeling of being away from it all as it is so serene. Yet, is the ideal home to explore NC’s Crystal Coast - by car/boat to reach beaches, shops or dining. Beaufort, Morehead City, Atlantic Beach, Cape Lookout Lighthouse Nat’l Park are all nearby.

Prime dates available - Last weekend in August now open - book today!

Plan your Fall 2021 getaway now! Don’t delay as dates fill up quickly.

At Pelican Watch, you can wake up to see the sun rise over the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) and then watch the parade of boats including pleasure boats to sail boats to multi-million dollar yachts to barges over 200 feet in length from two of our three bedrooms, the great room or even the kitchen. This section of the ICW connects the Pamlico Sound to the Atlantic Ocean and is part of the Great Loop.

If you do not want to stay inside, you can always go outdoors and relax on our covered rear porch or spacious open deck. Enjoy the wildlife that calls home to our backyard. Seagulls, herons, ducks and yes pelicans can all be seen from the back deck. And if you are lucky, you might view and hear a pod of dolphins playing in the area near our dock. As day turns into night, enjoy the tranquil moon and stars glistening off the water.

Our home allows you to escape while giving you the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere, yet is a close to the beaches (including Cape Lookout National Park) and an abundance of shopping opportunities from small quaint shoppes in Beaufort to some big box stores in Morehead City. Just know that when night arrives, you will be greeted by some of the comfiest beds (2 king and 1 queen size) around as you fall asleep from your day’s adventure.

For the fishing enthusiast, an array of fish can be caught right from our deep-water (8 ft deep) dock including: sheepshead, flounder, puppy drum, speckled trout, blue fish, crabs and more. Have a boat? Our community marina/boat ramp is less than one mile from our front door and great fishing in the Neuse River and Pamlico Sound is just minutes from our dock. Our backyard is a fisherman’s paradise!

For the kids, their is a community playground and a pool (nominal fee) open May - September. And the game room above our garage, complete with regulation size pool table and foos ball table, will keep them entertained your entire stay.

We are pet friendly too. Bring your well-behaved fur baby with you (see details in house rules).

For the professional who cannot totally disconnect from the office, our WiFi service and laptop work station provides steady access to the internet and a connection to your company’s VPN.

Chose Pelican Watch for your next escape!
