Appropriately named 'Playtime', this oceanfront/beachfront vacation rental built in 2005 has it all! If you aren’t simply enjoying the magnificent views of the Atlantic Ocean there’s plenty to keep you busy in this 4800+ square foot house that showcases 5 OCEANFRONT master bedrooms, 2 'kids' room and 3 Sleeper sofas!!

On the first level, there is one oceanfront master bedroom (King bed, TV & DVD player) with attached bathroom, a laundry room with oversized washer and dryer, a game room complete with a GAME TABLE, POOL TABLE, FOOSBALL table, a Pirates of the Caribbean PINBALL machine, KARAOKE machine with CD&G library, separate sound system with IPod/MP3 player, a wet bar with full size refrigerator and a THEATER. The theater has tiered seating for 6, a sofa with QSS, 1 chair and boasts a 60' television with 5/1 surround sound speakers as well as expanded cable and a DVD player with over 300 DVDs available for your viewing pleasure (in any room with a tv!). There is also a den with a QSS, tv with DVD player, XBox 360 system with multiple controllers, and wireless high speed internet.

If you are wanting a little more action, turn on the Xbox 360 system (Yes, there are two gaming systems!) and put your game playing skills to the test on the big screen tv. From the 1st level you walkout onto a deck that’s home to a 14’ x 25’ lighted swimming pool (can be heated for $550 additional), hot tub and a private walkway to a gazebo and the beach. Relax with the sound of the ocean, or turn up the music on the outdoor speakers.

Move on to the second level and you will find 3 additional oceanfront master bedrooms (King beds), all with TVs (cable & DVD) and access to decks. Two of the oceanfront masters on this level have attached private bathrooms. There are 2 additional bedrooms with private bathrooms, tv W/cable & DVD. 1 bedroom has 1 bunk (twin up, double down) with a trundle, the other has 1 bunk (twin up, double down) and an additional twin bed.

Continue up to the third level and you will be able to admire the beauty of a reverse floor-plan and the breathtaking views it provides! This oceanfront beauty faces the ocean with a southern exposure. Not only do you get both sunrise & sunset over the ocean, you won't be looking directly into the sun as you enjoy the views. There is a huge kitchen, dining room and living room complete with sound system w/CD, cable TV & DVD, gas fireplace and a QSS. This level is also where the 5th oceanfront master bedroom (King w/cable TV & DVD), complete with Jacuzzi tub, is located. You will not only enjoy the oceanfront views but also sound views from this level, something only a few vacation rentals can offer.

All floors are connected by extensive decking, interior and exterior stairs as well as an ELEVATOR from parking to the third level to allow quick access to anywhere. House is equipped with a water treatment system. All 7 bedrooms + den have access to shared or private decks. Tv's with cable & DVD player in EVERY ROOM!! (excluding bathrooms) Free long-distance phone, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, sand & water toys and collections of movies, Xbox games, board games, puzzles, books, magazines and indoor toys are a few of the little extras you will find at this vacation rental.

Truly one of the (not so) hidden jewels at Emerald Isle!

Away from the crowded public beaches, Playtime is a great place for a family vacation - quiet beaches and all the amenities. Yet if the beach, pool, mini-golf, pinball, and all the other activities aren't enough - we are only miles away from movie theaters, shopping, restaurants, jet-ski and kayak rentals, go-carts, and one of the NC Aquariums.
