This home is located on Pea Island, a wildlife refuge in North Carolina, USA. The house on the beach is not only breathtaking by itself, it is also famous for being a memorable part in the movie Nights in Rodanthe. This house was Serendipity, a romantic inn in the film starring Richard Gere and Diane Lane.
It was built in the 80’s and at that time had 120 meters of beach in front of the house. But over the years the beach disappeared until it was almost next to the shore. After every heavy storm everyone wondered if the building was still in place.
So in 2010 home owners were forced to relocate to another place, because of erosion, caused by the Atlantic Ocean. The move was successful and now the house is located in a new place and with new owners.
Although it seems incredible the owners wanted to sell the house but no one was willing to buy it. Finally some fans of the film bought it and moved it to a more secure place. They also arranged to restore the original splendor. In fact you can stay in it and spend some magical days on the island.
Staying here is to relive the romance of the film based on the best-selling novel by author Nicholas Sparks. Being able to immerse yourself in the beautiful places on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. A romantic getaway by visiting the wild and wonderful beaches of Cape Hatteras National Seashore will be unforgettable.
The island is located between the entrance of Oregon and Rodanthe. The 2,428-hectare refuge is a refuge for more than 360 species of birds. From spring to autumn, a large variety of wading birds can be seen in the area.
