Property description

Awesome view and great location!
We accept Sunday to Sunday rentals, or a 3 night minimum stay within a single week during the off season (within a Sunday to Sunday). Linens are not provided. Pet fees are included (two pet maximum)

Sweet Success is a classic duplex-style beach cottage just steps from the ocean, with a private path winding through sea oats, grasses, and beautuful sand dunes. Each side rents separately , or you can rent both sides when available.
You can bring 'man's best friend' along on vacation to this pet-friendly cottage, complete with 'doggie' gates on the ocean-side deck (great for little children too!). You can relax and enjoy the ocean breezes on the beach-side deck, or the view of our quiet neighborhood from the street-side deck (both furnished). Dine 'al fresco' at the picnic table oceanside. Take a nap in the hammock in the shade under the house! Additional seating is provided under the house as well, great for keeping the 'chef' company while grilling. A gas grill is provided for your cooking pleasure, as well as a fully equiped kitchen (complete with microwave and toaster-oven for quick meals).

Check out our Facebook page 'SWEET SUCCESS VRBO #358535' to see more pictures and area attractions!

The master bedroom (street-side) has a private bath, and the second queen-sized-bed is oceanfront, with a beautiful view of the waves. A twin bunk-bed room separates these two bedrooms, with a hall bath just steps away. Sunsets and sunrises are both equally amazing from this south-facing beach. Stargazing is incredible from the ocean deck, and moonlight over the ocean is SO romantic!

This cottage is located in a uniquely low-traffic area, with no through traffic along Ocean Drive. The neighborhood is largely owner-occupied, with a limited number of rental houses. The new Emerald Isle bike path system connects our neighborhood with the shopping district, as well as both regional accesses.

The washer/dryer is shared betweeen the west and east sides. Linens are not provided, but can be rented on the island if you choose not to bring your own.

If you are lucky, you may be here when a sea turtle nest is laid (May through August) or witness a 'boil' when a nest hatches (July -October). Last year there were 16 nests in Emerald Isle, and we are up to 15 so far this year. We have several nests in zone 6, including one right in front of Sweet Success! You can visit some of last season's hatchlings at the Aquarium in Pine Knoll Shores.

When you've had enough fun in the sun, there are many local attractions to help make your vacation memorable. The North Carolina Aquarium in Pine Knoll Shores is a must-see! Come learn all about sea turtles and their rehabilitation in a new exhibit at a 'sea turtle rescue hospital'. You can also visit some of last year's Emerald Isle hatchlings there!
Other area attractions include a maritime museum and boat-building facitlty in Beaufort, a Civil War era fort and a state park at Fort Macon (on the east end of the island), and the Tryon Palace/history museum in New Bern. Free outdoor concerts are heald throughout the summer in Emerald Isle, Swansboro, and at Fort Macon.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2000

About: We live 'full-time' in Emerald Isle, and are retired (mostly). We enjoy spending time with family and friends both here at the beach and at our 'other' home in the Finger Lakes district of NY. We both volunteer for Emerald Isle's sea turtle protection program, and walk the beach as often as we can in search of nests (we are the two in yellow with our daughter and grandkids at a sea turtle nest). Sharon also volunteer's at the NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores where we have a family membership. We spend many happy hours there with all our grandchildren! We are dog-lovers, who always enjoyed travelling with our chocolate lab, Rudy (we miss her very much). We enjoy biking on EI's extensive bike paths, golfing, swimming, fishing (Howard), photography (Sharon). We've spent the past 14 years 'growing sand' and beach grasses on our frontal dunes, which we are very proud of!

Why Emerald Isle:
Emerald Isle is such a family-friendly town, with gorgeous white sandy beaches. It sits on Bogue Banks, which runs east/west, making for a very stable beach as well as fabulous sunrises and sunsets!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The easy access onto the beach is one of our primary benefits. We love cocktails on the deck watching the sunset, as well as quiet dinners watching the ocean. Our grandkids especially love the new hot/cold outdoor shower under the house.
