Emerald Isle house description

***Just Picture Yourself Here-Check out our FB video-http://youtu.be/K7YFXHErHRM
Our oceanfront home is a sanctuary-a place to relax, unwind, and rejuvenate. We are located directly on the Atlantic Ocean with spectacular views of sunrises in the east and sunsets in the west. No Wake Zone West provides all the needed amenities plus those that only God can provide . . . again the sunrises and sunsets, the smell of the salt air, gorgeous waves, soft sand, pelican fly-overs, and the bountiful and unique shells that wash up on shore. Every time of the year is special and there is no bad day at the beach. We've enjoyed the strong winds and powerful waves during tropical storms, the awesome hot days of summer, and the relaxing cool days of autumn. The mere sound of the ocean waves brings a calmness to weary travelers. It's nice to go to sleep and wake up to the steady rhythm of the Atlantic Ocean. Within Walking Distance of Restaurants, Ice Cream, Mini-Golf, Shopping, Bike & Kayak Rentals, Pier


Why the Owner Chose Emerald Isle:: Emerald Isle-just the mention of the name evokes a place of beauty and calm. Who wouldn't want to be there and to share with others! Great place for weddings, military homecomings, and family reunions!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:: Year Purchased: 2000 - We love the sound of the waves, any kind of weather, the soft white sand, the dolphins, the pelican fly-overs, the family memories we've made at our place. We had our families from TEXAS and our new-to-the family members from NEW YORK stay at the duplex for our daughter's wedding. Great place for a Bridal Brunch and family relaxation!

Owner Description/Comments: : Charley & I have enjoyed Emerald Isle for many years. It's always been a retreat for us-to relax and to just focus on the truly important things in life. We invite you to do the same . . .

          Other Amenities

              • The upper floor is known as the 'Grand Room'-it's the living room, dining area, and kitchen. The half round window above the triple glass doors provides awesome viewing of 'Pelican Flyovers'! The triple patio doors, windows, bay window, and kitchen window all provide more than a mere glimpse of the ocean and its life. The 5th bedroom with queen-size bed and 3d full bath are on this floor as well. Unique views exist even in the kitchen! Each of the 2d & 3d floor bedrooms has a view of the ocean. Our neighbor's home is located near the front of their lot and does not impede the awesome views. The bedroom on the first floor, normally used by children, has a window that views our outdoor sitting area, and the dunes that we've helped encourage to protect us! There are more than 200 Christmas trees helping to anchor the strong beach grass under the sand of our dunes. ...moreless

                      Location

                      Dolphins regularly swim near the sandbars in front of our house. We even saw a lost small whale in May! He treated us to a show for about 5 minutes and then headed back out to deeper waters-PRICELESS!

                      This beautiful oceanfront property is conveniently located within walking distance to shops, restaurants, mini golf, ice cream shops, antique stores, theaters and bike paths. Easy drive to the NC Aquarium, historic Swansboro and Beaufort, NC. Less than 1 hr drive from Camp Lejeune, NC and less than 2 hrs from Wilmington and New Bern, NC. Other Activities: Boating, jet skiing, kayaking

                      Other Activities: Shopping, Kayaking, Boating, Shelling, Health/Beauty Spa, Basketball Court, Miniature Golf, NC Aquarium

                      Golf: Star Hill Golf Course-just minutes down the road, over the bridge
