Property description

Hi. Thanks for taking a look at Just For The Halibut West. Let this serve as your invitation to discover Emerald Isle, and the Crystal Coast of North Carolina. I promise that you will be hard pressed to find a more comfortable and accommodating oceanfront retreat. I make sure that my guests are welcomed and wonderfully surprised from the moment they arrive. Your vacation is a precious thing. I make sure its treated as such.

Please Click above on 'Traveler Reviews' and read what others guests have said about my little cottage by the sea.

My 2015 guests will enjoy the recent upgrades made at Just for the Halibut WEST, including the expanded ocean view deck, distinctive hard wood flooring, flat screen TV's, new gas grill, plus, the integrated sound system, with speakers both indoors and out, allow you to plug in your device, and play the sound track of your Life!

Very few Fall dates remain. So, if you have a date in mind...GRAB IT! ALSO, I RECENTLY PURCHASED 'JUST FOR THE HALIBUT EAST (VRBO # 201987). IF THE DATE YOU DESIRE IS NOT AVAILABLE AT HALIBUT WEST, PLEASE CHECK AVAILABILITY RIGHT NEXT DOOR AT HALIBUT EAST. OR, RENT BOTH SIDES, FOR A TOTAL OF SIX BEDROOMS AND FOUR BATHROOMS, THAT CAN COMFORTABLY ACCOMMODATE 12! Just an idea....

What makes Halibut WEST so accommodating? When you arrive, the beds will be made, and towels ready. The house will be clean and welcoming. Just get unpacked, grab a frosty beverage, and step out to the BEACH, or the gracious Ocean Front Deck! That loud noise you hear? It's the SURF!

I hope you can claim some time from your hectic Life to experience this beautifully decorated oceanfront duplex, where the seaside porch, furnished with rocking chairs, and loungers becomes your seaside living room. That smell? It's the salt air!

Greet the morning from the recently expanded ocean view deck, as the sun rises over the mighty Atlantic. Enjoy your morning coffee, as Dolphins meander past. Seabirds soar, waves crash, and the sea breeze replenishes your spirit, releasing you from the World whence you came. You are sitting, front row, on one of His most amazing wonders. This is beachfront vacationing, North Carolina style..

After a day on the beach, enjoy showering 'alfresco' in the enclosed outdoor shower (hot/cold water) with dressing area, located underneath the cottage. I have guests report that they never shower indoors when they stay at Halibut...

So evening has finally arrived. It's time to relax on the front porch, and listen to the crashing waves, the ocean breeze, and your favorite music... Speakers on the deck are soooo sweet! :)

Sandy beaches, gentle ocean waves, and a quiet family atmosphere define the Emerald Isle vacation experience. This isn't Myrtle Beach! It's far less commercialized and busy. It's much more laid back...but, there's plenty to do! It IS the perfect Carolina Coastal getaway.

Don’t forget that your furry family members are welcome. (Limited to two dogs, up to 30 pounds MAX each). No pet fee is required!

Saturday to Saturday rentals. NO SMOKING INSIDE...but a fine cigar on the deck is encouraged. YOU MUST be 25 or older to rent my home.

When making your reservation, please reference 'Just for the Halibut- WEST!'

I look forward to welcoming you to my little cottage by the sea.

Please note that reservations made under false pretenses will be subject to cancellation, and eviction with no refund given. OUCH! Plus, you will have to endure a serious lecture from my Mom.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: My name is Mark Storie. I reside in New Bern, NC, and have been a fan of North Carolina's Crystal Coast since I was 10.

Why Emerald Isle:
I have always loved this area, and when I discovered this house, I immediately fell in love. This warm, comfortable cottage wraps around you... This home, and this place, are very special.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
IT'S on the ocean? :) You can throw a shell to the edge of the surf at high tide from the new ocean view deck. The south facing beach view provides sun drenched days, and star filled nights. The home was recently upgraded with a new, larger ocean view deck, new integrated sound system both indoors and out. Plus, new flat screens TV's in every bed room, new hard wood floors, and accent rugs. Why don't you spend a week here, and let me know if what you discover is 'unique'?
