This is a very clean, well maintained and fully furnished ocean front home. It is half of a duplex. The other side of the duplex is not a rental. It is near a lifeguard beach (seasonal) area. The house and kitchen are fully appointed. It is an excellent value and has everything you'll need for a restful stress-free vacation at the beach. As you can see from the photos, we strive to make this a comfortable and tastefully 'beachy' home. Among the features of this property are TimeWarner cable tv, wireless internet, central air, ceiling fans in every room, 3 flat-screen HD-TV's, and custom hand-painted tropical murals on all 4 bedroom walls. It's NOT cheap thin, uncomfortable rattan or boxy furniture, nor is it used furniture from someone's primary home. We want you to relax and be comfortable!
There are 2 ocean-front master bedrooms with queen beds and 2 bedrooms street side (partial Sound view) with doubles and singles. There are 2 full baths and a wonderful outdoor enclosed shower with hot and cold water and a dressing area.
Recent (within the last year) upgrades include all new carpeting, new living room sofa, new stove and refrigerator, new kitchen sink & faucet, new TV's and many smaller changes as well. We are constantly upgrading! The landscaping was completely re-done in the spring of 2014. More improvements are planned!
There are lifeguards on the beach seasonally about 500 yards away. This house is ON THE BEACH with the same ocean, views and ease of access as the mansions that cost 3 or 4 times as much. We appreciate your inquiry and thank you for your time and for considering Beach House!

See dolphins from the house or deck! There is a private walkway from deck to beach over the dunes. The beach lifeguard area is within sight about 700 feet away. Bogue Sound ICW is just 2 blocks away (partial view). The Emerald Isle area has many excellent restaurants, from seafood to steak to vegan. Most deliver or offer take-out so you can bring food home or eat out. The kitchen is fully equipped so you can also cook if you prefer. There is an ocean pier in E.I. a few miles away and they offer fishing 24/7 and have all required gear and bait. You'll see ocean para-sailing and wind-surfers. The area has several excellent public and semi-private golf courses nearby. Emerald Isle has abundant shopping and all required services. Make sure you see Civil War Fort Macon in Atlantic Beach!
Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: Concerned, professional and responsive property owner PLUS a knowledgable local private estate manager who will meet you at the property at arrival for a walk-thru to make sure everything is perfect. He is then available to you during your stay for any assistance and advice.
Why the Owner Chose Emerald Isle: We considered a beach house in several coastal communities in different states before falling in love with Emerald Isle on our first visit in 2001. We immediately knew that the small town feel, absence of high-rise condos, vacation amenities, local friendliness and gorgeous uncrowded beach made this the place we wanted to visit again and again. We still enjoy it and you will too!
The Unique Benefits at this House: One of our favorite activities is simply to eat most meals on the deck and watch the ocean, the dolphins, people enjoying the beach, and the sunrises and sunsets. There have been a number of weddings on the beach right in front of this home.
