About Sondra McKelvey

Retired surgeon; have family in Raleigh; love the Emerald Isle beach and quiet community feel.

Sondra McKelvey purchased this house in 2004

Why Sondra McKelvey chose Emerald Isle

Bought home as an investment, but enjoy staying there also.

What makes this house unique

We like the fact that Emerald Isle is not overcommercialized. The beach is clean and never too crowded even in peak season. The island has an atmosphere of settled residential homes, not simply catering to tourists. It would be a good place for a permanent home, when we get to the point we can retire there.

Perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

We're beach goers and have stayed in several places along the Carolina coast. Loved our week in BRIGADOON. A really welcoming place. Very clean, nicely decorated and maintained - My husband and I were able to relax with our dogs in this great beach house - a wonderful location, beautiful views, easy access to everything. Loved the rocking chairs on the back deck!

Great Week At The Beach!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Emerald Isle and our stay at Brigadoon. We had perfect weather all week so spent most of the time at the beach. Friends were staying at the beachfront house right buy us so also spent a lot of time in their pool! House was set up perfect for our small group. Beach access couldn't be any closer or easer to get to. Great location for walking the dogs on the beach. House was equipped well and very comfortable. Only complaint and not the Excellent rating is that the downstairs bonus room & laundry were not accessibl from the main floor. Other than that would have been a Excellent rating. Will keep this house on our list for our next visit.

Our Home Away From Home!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the 4th year that we have stayed at Brigadoon for a week in the summer and we LOVE IT!! Every year when we first walk in the door, we notice something that's new or been updated. The house is always well-maintained and welcoming. We love to sit out on the deck at night and watch the moon over the ocean...even being one row back, the view is still great!

Nash Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The house was clean and was nicely furnished. We loved that it was so close to the beach and that we could see the ocean right from the windows. It was our first trip to Emerald Isle and we loved the beach and the surrounding area.

A Perfect Beach Week!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Brigadoon the last week of June. The weather was perfect; There is an awesome view of the ocean even though the property is second row and with easy access to the beach. The wrap around porch was an added feature; our "grand dog" loved it. The house size and room lay out was just what we needed for our group. We cook in most of the week so it was important that the kitchen was well equipped and all appliances in good working order. We have been to the area beaches many times and know there are fun things to do, but we prefer the beach every day and relaxing at the house each night. The owner was very prompt in responding to our questions and returning the deposit. The only suggestion I would have - and this is very minor - the kitchen needs a good pair of hot pads! We would love to return and would definitely recommend it to others. Thanks for letting us share Brigadoon!
