Property Info

"The Pelicans Haven" is a towering three-story beach mansion offering its guests panoramic views of both the Atlantic Ocean and the 13,000 acre Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge.  Located in the popular community of Sandbridge Beach which marks the beginning of the so called Outer Banks...a very quiet and picturesque area that allows families the freedom to relax and enjoy a carefree lifestyle away from the maddening crowd.

 The Pelicans Haven boasts nearly 5,000 square feet of living space filled with many unique features and amenities found in few other homes.  This expansive dwelling was built in 1990 by a local businessman to be his private residence, so spaces are generally much larger than will be found in most other rental homes.  Most likely, you won't find yourself "rubbing elbows" with others in your group...everyone will definitely have their own space!

Outside, "The Pelicans Haven" continues to offer guests expansive spaces for rest and relaxation!  There's over 2,500 square feet of sundecks, shade decks, covered porches and covered patios throughout the property.  Off the second-level dining room are both a very large south side sundeck and a nice covered porch overlooking the pool complex.  And, unlike most other pools, the elevated jetted fiberglass swimming pool is surrounded by a spacious 50' X 30' composite deck that encloses the pool, making it one of the most secure pools in the community.  Adjacent to the pool complex is a large grilling patio with a full bath house that is partially shaded by the covered porch above it.  Finally, two of the bedroom suites have fairly large sundecks for private relaxation.

Indeed, with its many unique features and amenities, The Pelicans Haven is consistently in high demand throughout the Spring and Summer rental season, so it pays to reserve the home well in advance in insure getting the week you wish to stay.  Indeed, there's no better place for your family reunion than our lovely Pelicans Haven!



Great Room

Indeed, the great room is impressively large as it raises up two stories!  An expansive oceanside window wall affords great views of the Atlantic Ocean as well as the swimming pool complex.  The entire room is ringed by supple overstuffed leather sofas...great for relaxing on as you  watch a sporting event on the 60-inch digital cable television or log on to wireless internet to check your emails.  It's a great haven for just plain relaxing!



Dining Room

Adjacent to the great room is the very large dining hall.  The highlight of the room is its 15-foot custom built marble table that seats all sixteen guests...few homes offer the luxury of accommodating such a large group at one single table.  This feature makes "The Pelicans Haven" a popular site for corporate meetings.  Also, there's a nice wet bar in the room with lots of storage space.  And, just step outside to either the covered porch or the southside sundeck.



Chef's Kitchen

As you leave the game area, you enter the area of the kitchen.  First, is the raised bar with very comfortable bar stools...a great place for a quick snack.  Then, you enter into the spacious kitchen with its center island.  Everything you need is here, and there's no shortage of space!  After all, there's never too many cooks in the kitchen!
