Emerald Isle house description

The video is a 'must see' it tells you so much about the home and gives you a great perspective of the spacious rooms and their layouts, the fine decor and comfort provided. You can also see the huge panoramic views of the ocean. The strand is amazing at this particular Emerald Isle Vacation Rental in that it is quite wide and inviting with abundant shells. There is much more privacy here than most homes since it is nicely tucked back in the dunes next door to a huge empty lot. The amount of privacy is amazing; there is rarely a sound passing through the walls. Parents can truly relax with the KIDDIE GATES on the wraparound porch, also one at the top of the third floor stairs.
We have, for your convenience, beach sand chairs..usually 9 or 12 of them. Also for the younger ones there are boogie boards, sand toys and a real garden shovel..fun for everyone!
Our most frequent compliment concerns the parking in the carport, who wants to get into a HOT car??? And the next best is how much the guests enjoy the adjacent outdoor private downstairs hot and cold shower, so refreshing!

The price is very reasonable and we even include the cleaning fee.
There are five spacious bedrooms beautifully decorated. The mattresses sleep wonderfully to the sounds of the waves coming from the beach. The kitchen /great room/dinning room is huge and the upholstered furniture has down cushions for cozy comfort around the TV,view of the beach, and the sound system which goes all the way up to the second floor if you wish.

The large nicely furnished deck can be a second dining room overlooking the ocean when the weather is nice. There are two big rocking chairs which make star gazing and watching the many dolphins even more enjoyable.

Totally renovated and redecorated. Large 5 bedroom half duplex - Emerald Isle, NC vacation rental.(the west end of the long, narrow island, approximately 30 miles long off the coast of Morehead City and Beaufort). Inviting and calm private walkway includes a sitting area overlooking the beach that will bring peaceful images and soothing audible comfort of the waves splashing against the sand. Nearby you will have the tranquility of dunes and nature as you've not seen before.

The sunsets offer uncompromising breathtaking and memorable beauty and splendor. I could go on and on but would rather have you see it for yourself. click video tab for a more visual descripton. Fees include cleaning and many extras.. Checkout our WINTER monthly rates for January, February and march.$3,300. Oceanfront - Gorgeous panoramic view of Atlantic Ocean.

There are area amusement facilities, jet skiing, water sports rentals, marinas, tennis, golf courses, NC Aquarium and museums nearby, along with shopping, and seafood for cooking or eating out. fishing pier in the process of being built just a mile walk down the beach! the sound is just 1 block away.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2000

                      About the owner: Bettie and her beautiful daughters on the porch............ Bettie has been vacationing at Emerald Isle for 40 or more years and has always come back here after exploring assorted other beaches. It is a quiet family beach and there is not so much commercialization as others...though there is plenty of action, entertainment,fishing, watersports,biking, rides ,acades, etc. for the younger set. She has wanted a place of her own here after all the years of coming and finally she found and bought this awesome 'home away from home'. it's just perfect!!! she takes much pride in keeping it newly updated constantly. Bettie is a simi retired art teacher and a decorator, which shows up in the beauty of the bright, happy beach home. all things about it are kept up and in pristine condition. Bettie wants her guests to be comfortable with down covered couches and the most comfortable beds she could find. she is often accommodating visitors with changes they would like to see on their next visit.Although she often frequents the close sorrounding towns closeby for shopping, restraunts and sightseeing....just being on the beach is really all she and her grown family really like doing with the exception of going to the nearby n.c. aquarium. Very soon there will be a huge fishing pier, built in conjunction with the aquarium just a little over a mile walk down the beach. Bettie lives in raleigh and her two girls, husbands and five grandchildren live in Richmond and Charlotte. This awesome home, she invites you to see for yourself!!!!

                      Why the Owner Chose Emerald Isle:
                      This is the nicest location on the eastern shore . The area is very kid friendly and the town is proud that there are not many high rise buildings and not alot of uncontrolled nightlife. this is a quiet location in a quiet neighborhood. There are plenty of fun shops and so very much history for you history buffs. Nearby, you will enjoy visiting Beaufort, the home of Blackbeard, and Pony Island. Swansboro is just a few miles away and also has fun shops and eaterys such as Yanas. morehead city also is an exciting town , especially their waterfront...there you can sign up for a fishing tour. Fising trips can be chartered or you can join a fishing tour with others on the boat. there is golfing and even miniture golf for the kids. My kids and grand kids enjoy the water slides and the water boats. Fishermen, also enjoy fishing on the strand or the huge fishing pier, which is close to the town. The closest business is a mile away from the home although 2 miles away there are shops, stores, a grocery,drugstore, theatre and restaurants. Emerald Isle is a lovely place to come to.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The views , inside and out are remarkable.click on video and see for yourselves. The beach area is not overcrowded. swimming is great. all is quiet and relaxing. No need to bring your beach chairs, Bettie has plenty, including sand toys and boogie boards. let your toddlers walk about the wrap around porch...there are kiddie gates for their protection. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. On the third floor there are five twin beds. the children and grownups alike enjoy the two t.v.'s, toys and the fun decor. Parents like it because the children entertain each other happily in their own abode on the third floor.
