From top to bottom, "Mariners Compass", located within the prestigious community of Pine Island Reserve, was conceived to embrace the concept of a true family vacation. There are panoramic oceanfront views, decks overlooking the Atlantic to the east and the Audubon Nature preserve and Currituck Sound to the west, quiet nooks for relaxation, and an abundance of space for the enjoyment of time spent together. Experience a truly luxurious Outer Banks vacation, while enjoying the convenience of eleven master suites, and an elevator serving all three levels of the home.

Choose your favorite deck for a sunrise breakfast, savor lunch in the ocean side gazebo, or have dinner alfresco on the poolside terrace area equipped with a gas fireplace, grill, and convenient open air pub and bar. The family will find a wealth of choices for entertainment and will surely enjoy time spent at the beach, reading, family movie night in the theatre, or the game floor, which is especially equipped for family fun. The pool offers fun for all ages, with a shallow kiddie area, as well as a swim-up bar for afternoon libations and relaxation. Cooks will love the gourmet kitchen and everyone will appreciate the dining room, which offers plenty of room for all and incredible ocean views. Expansive views of the Atlantic are also available from the screened outside piazza, where your family can curl up by the double-sided fireplace during late evening merriment, while listening to the sounds of the surf. Escape to paradise, experience the vacation home of dreams, and make the memories of a lifetime at "Mariners Compass".

The impressive array of amenities in this home is well complemented by those offered to guests of Pine Island Reserve. Arriving guests are welcomed by an ambassador who will familiarize guests with the home. Other exclusive features include upgraded linens, daily beach chair and umbrella set up from April 28 to September 27, and more. Guests of this home receive reduced greens fees at the Kilmarlic Golf Club, and for a small fee, use of the Pine Island Racquet and Fitness Center.

"Mariner's Compass was a very spacious and well-appointed home. We had several adult children with us who all had to work during their stay. There was ample space to accommodate their needs as well as to allow conversation throughout the house. The back yard space was amazing as well."

"Perfect home for a family vacation! Large but intimate, space to be together and alone to enjoy the ocean views! We had a wonderful time!"

Stacy   ·  Stayed May 2022

"I've rented this home four times and I love it. Just put down a deposit for next year. My favorite place is the screened in porch on the top floor. I also like that it does not have an outside staircase, which makes the home feel more secure. The only issue with the home is the front doors and their locks. Every time I've rented the home Twiddy has had to come out multiple times because the keys never work."

Kathleen   ·  Stayed October 2021

"We love Mariner's Compass. This was our seventh year in this house. A few changes were noted. The loss of the fish cleaning table was noted by my fisherman husband. We somehow missed the payment for the heated pool which has been included in years past. We will be returning next year. The house itself is well maintained and so comfortable for our large extended family."

"Lovely home. We had 23 adults and 2 toddlers and had plenty of room. The second floor gaming area was fabulous and provided lots of fun. The kitchen was functional with plenty of dishes/pots/pans etc. for all our cooking. One night we had a progressive dinner with appetizers served on the second floor, main courses served on the main level floor and dessert on the first level. So much fun. My only complaint is that the table on the main floor only sits 12-14 people. Luckily the floor plan is completely open so between the banquette seats, game table seats and bar seats we were all able to sit down to eat at the same time. The outside area is lovely and access and views of the ocean are excellent. Great pool, corn hole, hot tub and grill were enjoyed by all. I highly recommend this home."

"This was our first year staying in the home and the outer banks. We could not have been happier!!! It was absolutely beautiful and even when the weather wasn’t cooperating there were so many amenities inside the home to keep us occupied. it was so clean, and plenty of cook ware. Plenty of fridge space for how many people we had. Location was great as well. The owners sent pies which was so nice and left us wine glasses as a gift. Such a memorable time!!"

"Perfect! This was our sixth year at Mariner’s Compass and we are reserved for 2021. We have 21 adults and 11 children.(all family and this year we covid tested prior to convening) We bring a family friend who is a professional chef to do the cooking. We bring everything we need food wise and the kitchen and storage is great. thanks to the owners for constantly improving this property. It seems perpetually new!"

"Fantastic home. My families eighth year in this house. Love the different areas of the home that allow large families to get together in smaller groups. Love the pool and the hot tub. Could use second hot tub."
