Welcome to "The Captain's Bridge"! Permission to come aboard granted! This is one of the most unique properties at the beach. Built in 2018, you will find everything is state-of-the-art. The design was dreamed up by a local builder, The Captain. The property consists of two similar, yet distinctively different structures, joined by a bridge; The Captain's Bridge. Each building has 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, and 1 half bath. They each have an elevator, making it easy to get groceries and luggage up to the 3rd floor. We can sleep 12 in the entire package, or for groups of 6 or less, we can rent only the north property (the south property will not be occupied at the same time). There is beach access immediately across the street, making it very easy to get your toes in the sand.
When you enter the north house, you can take the elevator from the ground level to the 2nd or 3rd floors. On the 3rd floor you will find a modern kitchen with views of the ocean just across the street. The kitchen features stainless appliances, a high top dining table, Keurig coffee maker, and a 42" wall-mounted TV. Also located on the 3rd floor are the master bedroom and bathroom. Like the kitchen, the master bedroom has wonderful views of the ocean, offering you the opportunity to rise with the sun each morning. Not an early riser? Not to worry. Pull the black out shades down and you can sleep in as long as you like. The master bedroom features a king bed, night stands, dresser, and a 48" TV. There is also a comfy recliner for you to relax in as you gaze out the windows at the ocean. The master bathroom is spacious and welcoming. Step into the walk-in shower or enjoy a long soak in the deep tub. There is a large double vanity, and a separate toilet room. Of course, bath towels are provided!
On the 2nd floor, you will find two more bedrooms. The 2nd bedroom has a queen bed, dresser, night stands, and a 52" TV on the wall. Bedroom 3 also has a queen bed, night stands, and a 42" TV. This bedroom is a little smaller than the other, so we put the dresser in the closet. There is also room to hang your clothes there. Both of these bedrooms have good views of the ocean. These two bedroom share a full bath which has a deep tub and shower combination. There is a laundry closet on this level with a washer and dryer. Also on the 2nd floor is the living room. It features two leather sofas with built in, electric recliners. Enjoy movies or the big game on the 50" wall mounted TV. From the living room you can access the Captain's Bridge, which overlooks the pool and leads to the South house. There is built-in bench seating on the bridge, which is covered and shaded. This is a great area for the entire group to gather for cocktails while enjoying the views of the ocean, or watching the kids splash in the pool below!
The South house offers a similar set up as the North. On the 3rd floor you have a large master suite. The bedroom is very warm and inviting. It has a king bed, night stands, dresser, and a 50" TV. There is also a love seat in the bedroom. Of course, as with the other master bedroom, the views are exceptional. Like the other master bathroom, this one has a walk-in shower with a glass barn door, and a separate soaking tub with an additional handheld faucet. You'll also find a double vanity with a large horizontal mirror, and a separate toilet area. The bathroom has a large walk-in closet. The 3rd floor also has the main kitchen for this house. It features beautiful granite counter tops, stainless appliances, a large high-top table with two benches, and several bar stools for additional seating. The dining area also has a 42" wall-mounted TV. There is a powder room in the hallway on this level as well.
Take the elevator or stairs down to the 2nd floor and here you will find two more bedrooms, and a large entertaining room. The 2nd bedroom has a king bed, dresser, night stands, and a 42" TV. There is a Jack and Jill bathroom that leads from this bedroom out to the hallway. The bathroom features another double vanity sink and a beautiful step-in shower with its own view of the ocean. The 3rd bedroom has a queen bed, dresser, night stands, and a 32" TV. The living room on the 2nd floor is larger than at the north house, and was designed as an area to get the entire group together. It has a large leather sofa with recliners, a separate reclining chair, as well as dining or gaming table with seating for 5. There is also additional bar seating. There is a large 55" TV on the wall. This room also has an additional kitchenette with granite counter tops, stainless steel sink, a microwave, ice maker and a wine cooler. This room has a real cocktail lounge feel to it! There is a laundry closet on this floor as well.
The custom swimming pool is a unique as the rest of the property. The south end of the pool has a shallow "sun deck". This area is shallow enough to sit in and is great for little ones. The north side of the pool is 5.5 feet deep. There is a soaking tub in the middle that has massaging jets. The soaking tub is not heated year round. The pool is accessed from the garage in the north house.
Guests in the south house need to cross the bridge to the north house and go downstairs from there. There is a half bathroom in the garage of the north house, so you don't have to run upstairs.
There are two garages and you have access to both. The north garage is a large, 2-car wide garage. You can access the house via stairs or the elevator from the garage, and you can get to the pool deck from here. The garage on the south side is a long, drive-thru garage. It can be accessed from the street behind the house and is perfect for guests bringing a boat on a trailer. You can drive right through, out to the road in the front, so no need to hassle with backing in.
The Captain's Bridge is located right on Coastal Highway and there is a beach access directly across the street. Be sure to look both ways and hold on to the little ones. You will be in the sand in no time! The house is fully furnished with all clean linens for the beds, bath towels, wash cloths, and hand towels in each bathroom, and beach towels for all of our guests. The kitchens are stocked with cookware, utensils, plates, dishes, etc. There is free WiFi throughout the house. We have a gas grill in the garage, and we provide the propane.
