Showing off her body in an orange bikini, the reality star and her eight kids stayed in a beachfront house and played at the Bald Head Island Club pool, a source tells PEOPLE. The family (sans Jon Gosselin) also enjoyed dinner at Ebb and Flow restaurant during their retreat.
According to local resident Brittani Reynolds, the Gosselin family was far from incognito during the getaway. Sporting big sunglasses, Kate "looked like a movie star," Reynolds told PEOPLE. "She had a manicure and looked like she takes care of herself." Added Reynolds: "She actually seemed to be in a good mood; she was making jokes with everyone."
