Oceanfront

This 18-bedroom oceanfront home magically combines grandeur with the feel of the old Outer Banks.

A commercial-type Viking kitchen and ample dining space make meals a pleasure. Several well-stocked libraries and other private places provide opportunities for quiet retreat. The pool table, baby grand piano with player-piano option, and PA system provide the tools needed for all occasions.

Enjoy sunrises over the ocean and sunsets on the sound from this home’s high elevation and extensive decking. A raised walkway leads you to the large pool and pool house. Enjoy the gazebo dune deck, a chance to see wild horses and ultimately, the ocean. "The Mark Twain" invites you to relax, escape the hardships of everyday life and create cherished beach vacation memories. Approximately 2.3 miles up the beach.

The Mark Twain is a fantastic secluded beachfront property with sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean. Our (me and my partner) particular stay was in preparation for a future personal development weeklong event for 12-16 clients to get the feel for the house. This house fits the bill beautifully.

The space is warm and inviting even though it’s a massive building with 18 bedrooms. We were given the opportunity to see the adjacent two houses which includes another 14 bedrooms each for an even larger event as our retreats grow. The owner, Manish, and his staff are helpful, friendly, and quick to respond to any problems that arise.

Keep in mind, this is a part of the Outerbanks that requires 4x4 driving on the beach and over large dunes which could be a challenge for some, but during peak season the delivery services and personal chefs are available as a fail safe. There is also a fee for linens if you don’t bring your own and the paper amenities (TP, paper towels, soaps, etc) are your responsibility.

Otherwise, I 100% recommend this property and/or his other two properties (Fitzgerald, Hemingway) next to the Mark Twain for anyone wanting beautiful sunrises, ocean access, and larger group events.
