Emerald Isle house description

USA Today rated Emerald Isle 1 of 10 best on the Atlantic coast. “North Carolina’s Emerald Isle, located in the Southern Outer Banks, is perhaps the most beautiful stretch of sand in the Carolinas. Calm waters make it a perfect choice for safe swimming, and if you get bored with lazing in the sand, hop on a boat for some dolphin watching.”

Your family and friends will love the great open areas, private bedrooms, and breath taking views our home, “Matt’s Views”, has to offer. You can relax in the upstairs loft sipping your morning coffee and see both the ocean and sound at the same time . So peaceful and tranquil.

There are 4 separate decks from which to enjoy the natural beauty of the island . 3 of them are accessed from a bedroom. Look from the back and side over a canopy of greenery to see the entire Intercoastal Waterway / Sound with small islands and sailboats drifting by, or look out the front to see the sunlight glistening off of the ocean. Sunrises are worth getting up for and sunsets can’t be missed!

The large well equipped kitchen with lots of counter space makes preparing meals or snacks easy for a large group.

A short walk puts you on the flat, sandy beach where you will appreciate the laid back quiet family atmosphere with kids in the surf and dolphins parading up and down the shoreline. If you're lucky, there may be some sea turtle nests to visit (but please don’t disturb).

We can help arrange for linens on or off the bed if you prefer

Your four-legged friends are welcome, too, maximum of two pets, with a minimum of $150, non-refundable, fee.
