Emerald Isle house description

OCEANFRONT Blondie West is the west side of a duplex on three living levels. Located on a 'back key' lot with a very short walk to the ocean via a PRIVATE walkway and dune deck. This home has ALOT of great amenities, INCREDIBLE views and continues to have families that return year after year for a memorable family get-away. Don and Janice (owners of Blondie West)have remodeled and furnished BLONDIE WEST as a 'home away from home.' The 'island feel' is designed for your comfort as your family and friends 'kick back', relax and experience oceanfront living.

Imagine waking up to the sound of the sea and view the sunrise over the ocean as dolphin amuse you with their playful charm. Decisions at the beach? Which deck to sit on and enjoy your morning coffee. Stroll along the wide beaches or relax in a rocking chair with a good book (Blondie West has an extensive book library). It's just the beginning of another spectacular day at Blondie West where there's 'not a worry in the world. Life is good today!'

When you want to take a break from beach activities, enjoy a round of horseshoes on our regulation size horseshoe pit. Hungry? Thirsty? Fire up the large BBQ grill and have a drink at our custom built TIKI BAR. Newly expanded ground level sun deck w/ picnic table is easily accessible to lower level kitchen. Blondie West has TWO FULL KITCHENS. The upper floor kitchen has a seperate wine cooler with access to front and rear deck.

For those that want to explore the island, there are plenty of activities away from the beach to please and accomdate everyone in your group. For the active: bicycling (rentals available on island), golf, kayak and boat rentals, mini-golf, amusement park, horseback riding, volleyball, water park, driving range, skating, off-shore fishing, kite-flying. For the sightseer and shopper: Waterfront Morehead City, Beaufort waterfront, Swansboro waterfront shops and antiques, Emerald Isle shops, North Carolina Aquarium and more.

Want to try some local seafood? Don and Janice have compiled menus from various restaurants so that you can check out the menu before you go. Ice Cream at the beach? Emerald Isle has several ice cream parlors and if you want ice cream at home, Blondie West has provided your own banana split bowls!!!

As the sun sets, the Blondie West TIKI BAR remains open! Let the games begin in our gameroom that contains a pool table, game/card table and numerous board games. What about a movie? Blondie West has an extensive DVD/VHS library. Each bedroom has it own TV/DVD/VHS player.

One of our most favorite places at Blondie West is our dune deck. Unwinding with a cocktail as we watch the breathtaking sunsets change to a blanket of shimmering stars. Here ends another great day at the beach!

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About: Don and Janice Easley own Blondie West. Janice, an Adapted Phyical Education teacher and Don, an Electrical Contractor have rented many beach houses and enjoy maintaining Blondie West as 'a home away from home.' They love the beach and have an 'eye for detail' that welcomes your family to their home. As a child, Don's father was statiioned at Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, NC. But it wasn't until 2003 that Janice and Don discovered Blondie West on the beautiful Crystal Coast. God Bless America!

                      Why Emerald Isle:
                      After vacationing at beaches along the east coast, our family discovered Emerald Isle, NC in 2003 and immediately fell in love with the relaxing small beach town atmosphere. Emerald Isle is a VERY family-oriented beach! The wide and uncrowded beach allows families the opportunity to actually play games. Being an active family, this was very important to us. We had never been to a beach where we saw so many families playing together. Dolphin watching from our deck, walking on the flat beaches and watching beautiful sunsets are some of our favorite things to do at Blondie West. We purchased Blondie West on our first visit to Emerald Isle so that our family could continue to enjoy the 'island life' of this small beach town. As owners of Blondie West, we have added a new amenity each year (i.e. large 'island' tiki bar, expanded sun deck, official size horseshoe pit, upgraded colorful kitchen, bathroom and flooring) for your family vacations. Hope to see you at Blondie West!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Some of our favorite activities while relaxing at Blondie West include: surf fishing, jogging on the flat beach, looking for seashells, enjoying the beautiful sunsets, playing horseshoes, flying kites, building sandcastles and enjoying time together with family and friends.
