Emerald Isle cottage description
This 2nd row duplex has it all! Great ocean views without the oceanfront rental prices (and it's CLEAN)! Over 2,000 sq feet, on a quiet, non-busy street with a view of the ocean or sound from every single window in the house! Make this your 2nd home for a week (or two) and you'll never want to leave.
We want your family & friends to have a great experience and forget all of their worries while making great memories that will last a lifetime. Sound too good to be true or too much like a Hallmark card? Well we aren't kidding!
Wake up every morning and walk directly out of your bedroom onto the deck and breathe in Emerald Isle's salty air. House has 4 bedrooms with Queen beds (all with deck/balcony access) & a kids' loft/entertainment area on the 4th level with 4 twin beds complete with books, games, puzzles, a TV, DVD/VCR player & stereo system. In the den you can even watch tv, look to your left and see the ocean... of course, that's just from the inside, wait until you step out onto the decks!
Beach access is literally steps away across the street with a wooden walkway leading directly to the surf. Families with young kids will enjoy this convenience by not having to walk far with all your beach supplies and stuff! You also have the convenience of our exhilarating outdoor shower with hot/cold water to wash off the beach sand and lotion.
Cook all of your favorite 'beach foods' in our fully equipped kitchen while looking at the emerald blue ocean. Then dine and entertain inside with family & friends while enjoying the great ocean views from the large eating area or have your meals outside on the deck's large teak dining table with umbrella where the view and sounds of the ocean enhance the experience.
Watch schools of dolphins in the morning swim by & flocks of pelicans dive in for a snack in the afternoon. If you need some shade, head down to the lower level deck & relax on one of our lounge chairs or porch swing. Of course, the decks have great views, but nothing can beat hanging out on the beach & swimming in the ocean. After a long day, enjoy our outdoor shower (w/ hot & cold water) and indulge in some great local seafood at one of many restaurants within minutes of the house. After the kids have gone to sleep, sneak back out on the deck and look at the moonlight shine over the water with a glass of your favorite beverage. Get the best sleep of your life (as long as you put on plenty of sunscreen) and wake up ready to do it all over again!
I hope some of these words have captured just a small picture of what it is like to vacation at Beach Retreat: East. We have posted lots of pictures but nothing compares to actually being here. We truly look forward to helping you and your family have an amazing 'Beach Retreat', so please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions, comments or concerns.
If you are vacationing with multiple families, please see dates and availabilities for Beach Retreat West, listing #395470. Rent both sides and vacation together.
Thank you for visiting our page and we hope your toes are in the sand very soon!

Home away from home
Home away from home
Oh my!!!! As soon as we walked in we felt at home. My family rented this home ( 4 kids & 2 adults ) with my sisters family ( 3 kids & 2 adults ) and there was plenty of space. It fit us perfectly. The home was extremely clean and comfortable. Saw the pics online but I thought it was even better than the pictures showed. I was elated to see the proximity to the ocean. It was literally as close as walking across the street. The beach was clean and beautiful and the kids loved the waves. I was a bit skeptical renting a home, I thought it would be just like being at home cooking and cleaning but that was one of my most relaxing vacations ever. I would stay again in a heartbeat. Also just would like to say that working with the owner, Sammy, was a very pleasant experience. My niece asked the first day that we were there if we could do this again next year ..... That's an easy "yes ".

We had never been to Emerald Isle before. We were pleasantly surprised. We shall return. This house was everything the owner said it would be. Clean and well kept. Good location. We liked the deck and the deck furniture.The beaches were nice and wide, uncrowded, with plenty of room for swimmers and fishermen.We rented a pontoon boat and fished in the intercoastal waterway. Next time we might drive to Cape Lookout to see the only lighthouse that we have not seen in NC.Flippers had a good breakfast. The tackle shop and the surf shops were great too.We bought fresh shrimp and scallops and fixed at the house one night.We had a good time!

Elegant beach house that feels like home

We have had the opportunity to stay twice now and our experience has been awesome. The home is warm and inviting with all of the amenities of home with a gorgeous beach decor. The local area has fabulous restaurants and the beaches have never been over crowded. The multiple floors allow for all to have privacy when wanted, but share a fabulous common area big enough to entertain the entire family. This is where we will stay the next time we come to Emerald Isle or the surrounding area.

Owner response: It's gratifying to have guests return year after year to our beach retreat, and it is our goal to keep making improvements in order to make your stay more enjoyable. Thanks for your kind remarks. We look forward to serving you again in the future.
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with our family. My daughter's only wish for her 8th birthday was a family trip to the beach and we are so pleased we picked your property for her surprise trip. It was also our youngest daughther's first visit to the beach. The house was amazing, very clean, fully stocked with all the supplies we could need, and beautifully decorated. Our gilrs LOVED the loft and the stairs! They felt so "grown-up" having their own, child-friendly, space. Our whole family enjoyed the views and started and ended everyday sitting on the deck enjoying the breathtaking view of the ocean. We have memories that will last a lifetime and can't wait to visit again. I would recommend this property to anyone without reservation. Thank you again!

Owner response: We hope your daughter's birthday was special! You are always welcome at our beach retreat and hope you return for many more special family memories.
Our family had an amazing stay at this property! We have three boys, ages 5 and 3 year old twins. I was worried that I would not find a nice home, in our price range with close enough access to the beach. This house was perfect for our family. The beach is right across a very quite light traffic road..it was a 2 minute walk, which is perfect when toting 3 little ones! The house itself was extremely clean and looks much nicer in person that even in the photos. The kitchen was fully equipt. with baking pans/pots etc. all we needed to cook all meals right out the house. And eating out on the peaceful deck looking out at the water every night was heavenly! Having the outdoor shower was also another feature we used every day after our beach time...and I feel is a necessity after beach time with kids! When looking for a rental property I searched this and many websites and this house was everything we wanted and more. The owner was also great to work with, very professional and personable. He even called to make sure everything was to our liking after we arrived. My kids, husband and myself all agree that this will be our "Beach Retreat" for sure, next summer too!

Owner response: Awesome! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay, and you are always welcome to call this your Beach Retreat for many summers to come!
We had a lovely vacation. The beach house is wonderful, tastefully done, equipped with all the amenities and easily accessible to the beach. The property is clean and well maintained. Our landlord answered questions RIGHT AWAY! I would recommend this property to both friends and relatives. It is close to the restaurants and attractions. The listing was accurate and the photo's really didn't do the property justice.

Owner response: We are glad ya'll had a great time! Thanks for your kind words, and we hope your family will stay with us again next year. Emerald Isle is a little piece of paradise where you can relax and enjoy life.
for sharing your beautiful beach-house with us. The photos don't do the house justice. It is the cleanest beach rental I have ever had. There are plenty of chairs for outdoor sitting on the decks. The decks are wonderful, there is both a shaded and a sunny deck. My family had a wonderful time. We look forward to renting this house again :-) I would definitely recommend renting from the owner. I have never had a realty company call to see if we had arrived safely and found everything in working order. Such a pleasant experience. Thank you.

Fabulous vacation rental!!!
Fabulous vacation rental!!!
We had two families stay in this beautiful house. The loft was PERFECT for the kids - they loved it. The rest of rooms were super comfortable. The house itself was spotless and so nice! It was a real treat to stay there - it had all we needed. The location was perfect - the walk to the beach is right across from the house. We could actually call out to the kids on the beach from the deck! Such a wonderful experience - will definitely rent again!

Beautiful Home and Great Location
Beautiful Home and Great Location
Our family had a great vacation and were very pleased with the beautifully furnished and clean house. The house was immaculate, well-maintained, with every convenience we could possibly want. The rooms are a nice size and the decks are awesome! The beach is actually a shorter walk than places we've rented right on the beach. The loft provides a lot of extra space with lots of games and entertainment items for the kids. The owner was great to work with in renting the property and communicating with us. Great location with just a short drive to shops and grocery store. We'll definitely plan to rent this property again next year.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Beach Retreat East! We woke up each morning and sat on the upper deck and drank our coffee as we gazed out at the ocean. The house is very nicely decorated. We had everything we needed. We loved having the beach so close. On several days the water was so clear we could see our feet when we were in water up to our chest. I guess that is why they call it the Crystal Coast! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

About the owner: Our family has enjoyed the Crystal Coast for the past 30 years, always renting out the same cottage. Brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, moms, dads & grandparents have come together once a year to laugh, eat, swim, ride go-karts, play putt-putt, lay out, read books, & just enjoy each other's company. Kids have grown up & now even have kids on the way. In our wildest dreams we never imagined we would have our own beach house in Emerald Isle and be able to provide quality beach experiences & memories to other families. It is truly a blessing! So please make sure you sign our guest book & tell us all about your vacation before you leave!
Why the Owner Chose Emerald Isle:
Emerald Isle has the most gorgeous beaches on the east coast with a huge bonus: they aren't crowded! Emerald Isle retains its barrier island character with friendly locals and great seafood. Short distance to nearby towns for great shopping, eating and exploring life on the water front. You'll never want to leave!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love relaxing on the deck, sipping a favorite beverage & enjoying the gorgeous ocean views. You can hear the waves crashing & the ocean is only steps across the street. It's so peaceful walking on the beach ,watching the birds, and taking pictures of the occasional school of dolphins swimming by. The beach is also not crowded at all.
