Emerald Isle house description

REDESIGNED WITH YOU IN MIND...

Beautifully renovated in 2012

MAKE SURE TO WATCH OUR VIDEO NEXT TO THE PHOTO TAB

Years ago, when we discovered this home, it was sand-covered and neglected, but the location was priceless. Today it is a refreshing, comfortable treasure surrounded by water on three sides, with a deck opening directly onto the beach and breath-taking sunset views.

Your stay at this bright, colorful oceanfront home offers opportunities to enjoy sea breeze respites on the porch, deck or beach.
Or you can try your luck surf fishing at ocean’s edge or flounder gigging in the channel, “the honey pot” as the locals call it. Bear Island is just across the inlet and there is abundant sand for castle-building and sunning. The beach is just short of feeling completely private.

The house itself boasts lively, inspiring décor that invites gatherings in the family room, breakfast room and kitchen. In the colder months, with the fireplace ablaze, the space is intimate and cozy. The kitchen is comfortable, current and well equipped. For those who find relaxation in the latest movie offerings or sports events, the large flat screen television is at the ready. Each bedroom also has a television to accommodate differences of opinion. Both the master and guest bedroom overlook the water.

In the event that you find yourself in need of getting away from all this, a short car ride away, you’ll find a plethora of things to do. There is shopping in Swansboro, and Morehead City, fine dining and art in Beaufort, antique hunting in New Bern and Jacksonville for all the rest.

We hope that you will consider treating yourself to a stay at this easy, relaxing oceanfront jewel.

                                What a great place for a winter escape to the beach -- or a beach vacation any time of year! The house is lovely, very comfortable, and just as pictured in the photos. We experienced every kind of weather -- sunshine and bright blue skies, cloudy days, snow and ice, foggy days -- and the gas fireplace was wonderful. During the usually cold weather (for North Carolina) the water pipes froze, but within minutes of a phone call they were being thawed and all was well. Fresh fish and clams from Clyde Phillips Seafood in Swansboro provided the ingredients for delicious dinners. Walks on the beach, gorgeous sunsets, watching beach work from the channel dredging project, cooking that yummy seafood, reading by the fireplace -- what could be better? The property is just as described, and was clean, well maintained, and all ready for us when we arrived. Faye responded promptly to a few emails with questions prior to arrival as well as a phone call or two while we were there.

We are so happy to hear that your vacation at our beach home was pleasant even though the weather has been unusually cold and with more than normal snowfall.

We try very hard to make sure not just our home lives up to your vacation expectations but we also strive to respond to any concerns or maintenance/service needs during your vacation. Thank you so much and please vacation with us in the near future!

                                Hubby and I had a lovely time despite mostly dreary weather. The house is beautifully decorated yet cozy and warmly inviting. It was wonderful to see the ocean from all the windows in the main living area. The house looked exactly like the photos, with everything clean and ready for us to enjoy our week. Not a single problem! Mostly we stayed in and cooked our meals. The gas stove was part of the reason I chose this house. We went into Swansboro twice. It's very small, and on the water, just a few miles over the bridge with a number of quaint shops in the old buildings. We had lunch one day at Saltwater, with pretty views, friendly staff and yummy food. We like to watch movies and quickly found the closest Redbox just over the bridge at Lowes (food) and Kangaroo. Lowes is a small step above Food Lion, but both stores provided adequate provisions for our vacation week. We would definitely stay here again, and encourage others to give it a stay!

The gas stove was a must have for me during the new renovation process. Thank you for pointing out the close proximity the the quaint town of Swansboro. It is a definite must visit village. I would also like to suggest visiting Beaufort NC on your next visit with us as you will surely enjoy as well. It has a rich history that is unique to coastal North Carolina. That you so much for all the kind words and we hope you will revisit soon.

                                We had an amazing week here at the point in EI. Absolutely LOVED this house and all the amenities that went along with it. It is furnished beautifully and has everything you could possible need or want. The views are outstanding with breathtaking sunsets! If I wasn't such a beach person, I could've just lived on the deck:) Fishing was ON while we were here in August. We ate flounder EVERY night, along with some blues. We lost count of all the flounder we caught this week! It is a bit of a walk to get to the ocean, so we were thankful for the handy cart. Thank you Faye, for being so helpful and gracious in letting us share your beautiful home!

                                My husband and I stayed at this beautiful home for a week, and neither of us wanted to leave. It was everything promised on the VRBO website, and more. A perfect vacation spot. We enjoyed sitting on the deck with morning coffee, and with a glass of wine at night watching the sunsets We rented bikes and rode around the island a bit, but otherwise we stuck close to home. Took walks on the beach and basically just relaxed. The house was very comfortable and nicely furnished. I have a picture of the view from the deck on my computer at work, so when I am having a stressful day at the office I can remember the peace and calm I felt there. We're already planning another visit.

                                Exactly what I imagined! Tranquil, peaceful, your own private beach. My family had the most wonderful time, sitting by the sound during the day, enjoying the exquisite sunsets in the evening. The decor inside was stunning, Faye truly has created a home, not a beach rental. We got fresh fish from the local market and cooked plenty of meals in the well stocked kitchen. Morning coffees on the deck watching people fish in the surf was magical. Highly recommend Kathryn's Martini Bar for dinner! Faye, thank you so much for opening up your beautiful home, we loved every moment and hope to be back next year!

                                My husband I booked this reservation for a few weeks after we took our second/last child to college. It was a busy and often stressful summer and had been a VERY long time since we had been on a weeks vacation alone. And it was just what we each individually and as a couple needed. We have been to EI many years and always stay at large houses with lots of "bells and whistles" with extended family and although have lots of fun, rarely come home relaxed. This home was as beautiful and comfortable as those larger homes, but so much more intimate and relaxing! We know where all the restaurants are and "things to do" in EI but found ourselves cooking at home and sitting out on the deck every night to watch the most beautiful sunset we'd ever seen every night. Once the sun had set, we found ourselves watching the moon and stars. We swam in the cove and walked the beach every day. And my husband really enjoyed the fishing. There's plenty to do in Emerald Isle, but we didn't want to leave the beach house! We did find a coffe house (4J's) and drove to get coffee every morning, after drinking coffee on the deck in the morning. I didn't realize how much we needed to rest until we got here and found the prefect place to do it. I'm already politicing for 2 weeks next year!

                                This is a beautiful house set in an amazing location! We spent two weeks enjoying this wonderful spot. The house is very nicely decorated with great seating. The deck is wonderful for sitting, relaxing and enjoying many gorgeous sunsets over the ocean. We were able to kite surf, paddle board and fish in the sound. We also had a great time playing in he ocean and riding the waves! The owners were very helpful and always available if there were any questions. A definite treasure that we will be sure to come back to!

                                The house is gorgeous, and the beach is amazing! We have two children and it was like a playground for them! We enjoyed the calm sound, the channel for fishing, and the ocean. There was never many people on to have to share the beach with and the sunsets were phenomenal! To get to the beach or to the channel to fish, it is about a 1/4 mile walk. Good exercise--but something you should consider if you have small children or someone that can't walk very far in the sand. I enjoyed the additional walking! This part of emerald isle is my favorite and the house is beautiful!

                                An absolutely dream! Perfect location to enjoy both the calm shallow water of the Sound (good for swimming, clamming (we even found scallops), kite surfing, paddle boarding, fishing) and the waves of the Atlantic. The house has been recently renovated and is beautifully decorated. It's at the bottom end of the Emerald Isle, right after the bridge so easy to reach. There is no better place to be in the Emerald Isle!!! We have been here 2 years and will come back next year. We cannot rave about it enough.
