Emerald Isle is 20 Minutes from Morehead City, N.C. It's located on a barrier island considered the southern most stretch of the Outer Banks. It's also part of an island referred to as the Crystal Coast, which offers big stretches of white sand and gorgeous blue green waters. Emerald Isle, in particular, is a very family oriented beach and our home is far enough away from condos that it's never crowded. Bring or rent bikes and enjoy miles of bike paths. The North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores is a short drive which offers all kinds of great kids activities. Drive to Beaufort and see the wild ponies on Shackleford Banks.
Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: We live in Raleigh and enjoyed Carolina Dawn for many years before deciding to rent it a few years ago. We've filled it with artwork that we love of local beach scenes, mostly by Beaufort Artist Alan Cheek. We've also tried to make it as comfortable and convenient as possible for families.
Why the Owner Chose Emerald Isle: You can't beat the views and the easy access to the beach from our location. Just walk out the back door and down the boardwalk and you're there. Our stretch of beach never seems crowded and there's easy access to shopping, restaurants, entertainment and more.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: We have a dog who's a member of our family so we know how nice it can be to bring the dog along on vacation. That's why we consider requests for responsible dog owners to bring their well behaved dog to Carolina Dawn.
