Wife and I, retired, are looking to purchase a 2nd home with plan to spend 4-6 mos there and eventually move there when family responsibilities allow. We are looking for something that first, is nicely maintained and absentee owner friendly. Want amenities, pool, boat ramp, etc. Twenty mins to beach is fine.

We owned a place in the Outer Banks so know coastal life and what we think we want this time (OBX isn’t it). We also will not come there and tell y’all how it’s done up north we know how to fit in.

Have “eyeballed” Bogue Watch in Newport and it seems to check the boxes.

Any thoughts? Thank you.

I would just keep an eye on the HOA fees for all those amenities. Pools, boat ramps ect really drive them up. But they are nice to have !

Oh, that I know! I don’t mind fair fees if I get nice amenities and good service and management.
