About the owner: My husband is from a small community in Michigan and i am from rural North Carolina. He says we are 'country grunts.' That sums us up nicely....friendly, hard workers and love it.
Why the Owner Chose Emerald Isle: Emerald Isle seems to be one of the last areas that isn't totally commercialized. No high rise hotels, no fast food on the island. we still have a shanty here and there. That's just really cool to me.
The Unique Benefits at this House: My husband and I repair, replace, update things as necessary at the beach. The elements are so brutal on the oceanfront beach houses. He's the best handyman ever. We love doing projects together. well actually i love dreaming up the projects and he makes it happen. The name of our beach place is Wind Drift East but my husband calls it 'Maintenance H*ll!' We look up occassionally and see dolphin swim by as well as sea gulls diving for fish. That's the best benefit. Well, my husband also likes to watch the cool swimsuits go by...
