  • Pet friendly, comfy, cozy cottage with everything you could need!

    "Loved this place! As soon as we walked in, we heard the waves crashes and were instantly drawn to the large sliding glass door and out to the deck! It was beautiful view of the beach for miles either way! We captured beautiful pictures sunrise, daylight and sunset! Pure relaxation to have the sandy beach between your toes! I love the cozy feel of the cottage. The beds are plump and comfortable! The kids loved the bunk beds and the idea of a TV in their room! The kitchen had everything you could think of...even a coffee grinder! The couches are comfy for relaxing after a long day on the beach. We were able to share this experience with our 3 kids and two dogs. The dogs loved walking, running on the beach. They were sound asleep all night long!"

  • The Perfect Vacation

    "For the past 15 years or so our family has gathered at a NC/SC beach. Over the years the family has grown to 13 and we all look forward to our August week at the beach. We have spent that week on the Outer Banks, at Emerald Isle, at Ocean Isle, and Fripp Island. We have sampled a lot of beaches and a wide variety of accommodations. My wife and I have always favored the Morehead/ Atlantic Beach/Emerald Isle area since those are the beaches we most often frequented during our growing up years. This year we returned to Emerald Isle and found the beach home that fits our needs perfectly. Your home is perfectly situated for ocean views and breezes. Easy excess and the private walkway makes the days at the beach so convenient. It's spaciousness allows all our group to have privacy while offering large areas to gather and socialize and dine as a group. The wonderful porch became at nightly gathering place as we relaxed after a "hard day" of sunning and swimming. The only improvement you could make would be to make the week last longer. We really didn't want to leave but our sadness at doing so was mitigated by the knowledge that we will hopefully be back next year. Thank you for your hospitality in providing such a wonderful venue for our family vacation. Ed and Lynda Thomas PS: The wonderful basket of goodies was the perfect touch to kick off a superb week!!"

  • Our Crystal Palms vacation

    "We had a great time! Everything was as it appeared in the photos. The house was beautiful. The amenities were wonderful. The game room was enjoyed by all from six years to seventy one years of age. The pool was much larger than I expected and all the toys for the pool provided by the owner was unbelievable. Everyone enjoyed the hot tub. Fishing was easy with the ocean right outside and there was a landing we could leave our fishing gear and rinse off at the outside shower and spigot before going to the house. On the porches/decks were plenty of chairs and rockers to sit and enjoy the view. Having the elevator was a blessing getting luggage and groceries in as well as we had someone who recently had back surgery and someone who has a bad knee. I didn't understand why the elevator didn't go to the top floor where there are four bedrooms but for us it was no problem as the two people with limitations slept in the two bedrooms on the main floor and everyone else had no problem with the steps. We all hope to go back again to Crystal Palms."

Emerald Isle Travel Tips

Enjoy Emerald Isle Vacation Rentals

On the Atlantic coast of North Carolina, one of the most beautiful states in the east, you will find the small town of Emerald Isle. Emerald Isle is primarily a beach resort town just south of the larger Morehead City. During the summer, Emerald Isle vacation rentals are in high demand ranging from Emerald Isle condos to houses situated right on the sandy beaches. If you are planning your stay in these gorgeous North Carolina beach rentals, plan to arrive via Route 58 as that is the only way into town.

Getting around Emerald Isle Condos

Once you arrive at any of the great North Carolina beach rentals, you will quickly ditch the car and head for the hills on your bike or by foot. In fact, most Emerald Isle vacation rentals are within very close proximity to the many new bike paths that were implemented between 2006 and 2007. Because the scenery is so beautiful in this sleepy beach town, you will not mind renting a bike for everyone in the family or simply taking a walk to reach your destination.

What to Look for near North Carolina Beach Rentals

Obviously, when you book Emerald Isle condos, you will see plenty of the beach. But what else can you catch a glimpse of? Look up toward the sky for a peek at military jets soaring high above as they practice routine drills. If your North Carolina beach rentals are near the west side, head out to “The Point” during either high or low tide. The view is spectacular; beware of the water’s current as it is very strong.

Exciting Emerald Isle Vacation Rentals

If you are the type of person who loves to plan your own vacation without the hassle of dealing with organized tours, booking your own Emerald Isle condos is a great way to go. Staying in just about any of the Emerald Isle vacation rentals, you will find that there is plenty to do, and you will not need to spend days booking a tour. You can go deep-sea diving, deep-sea fishing, skim boarding, kayaking, shopping, and so much more. The possibilities are endless, so what are you waiting for?
