Emerald Isle house description

Come visit and while away the hours at beautiful Emerald Isle, NC.

Enjoy the Crystal Coast from the comfort and serenity of The While-Away House.

Located in the Ocean Crest community, it offers views of the ocean, access to the beach, and walking distance to fun, food, and what you need to have a good time.

The While-Away has 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, including 2 master suites, and can accommodate 8-10 people. (The dedicated office has a fold-out futon as well.) The fully-stocked kitchen will meet most if not all of your entertaining needs. The house-wide WiFi streams Netflix, Pandora, and YouTube wherever you are, whether in one of the 2 communal areas or on one of 2 decks watching the sun set. Since the modern workplace does not expect you to be gone for long, there is a dedicated office with a desk and a wired connection where you can get away and focus. Or, if you had a long day at the beach, take a soak in the hot tub and think about what you're going to do tomorrow.

For your convenience, we use a management office on Emerald Isle to facilitate all bookings and assist with any guest needs while they are on vacation.

                      Location

                      The While-Away House is nestled in a private oasis of lush maritime forests while affording a 180 degree view of the Atlantic Ocean and pristine beach from the highest point of the island. The While-Away House is conveniently located in a walking neighborhood--including a 5-minute walk to the beach--and is across the street from the grocery store, movie theater, pizza parlor, and shopping.

                      A favorite pastime is to go to the municipal park (by the Emerald Isle Water Tower) and search for Shark's Teeth in the shark-tooth dig.

                       

                      Manager info

                      Why Emerald Isle:
                      We loved this house the moment we walked into it. Big, but not too big. Close to the water, but not too close (we remember you, Irene!). It's got all of the things we like and we're picky! You'll love being there too when you visit The While-Away House!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We liked The While-Away House because it's perfect for small groups to get together and hang out. The good thing, though, is that there is an option of places to congregate: the 3rd floor deck, the 3rd floor media area, the kitchen, the 2nd floor deck, the 1st floor media area, the pool table, the hot tub, and the outdoor patio table. It's just a great place to hang out!
