About The Owner

5417 - E Ocean Drive, Emerald Isle, NC

The Owner purchased this house in 1995

Why The Owner chose Emerald Isle

We have always enjoyed Emerald Isle and finally decided to invest after many years of vacationing here.

What makes this house unique

We love waking up to the sound of waves breaking. We are within walking distance to a little mini mart and we enjoy making this walk early in the morning to get the morning paper. We usually walk on the street there and return along the beach...a perfect way to start the day. There are enough restaurants and entertainment options to keep you busy if you choose, but not too many. Our favorite restaurant is Flippers. Some of the things we enjoy doing are: obviously enjoying the beach, playing tennis at the town park, getting ice cream at DQ, going for walks and runs along Ocean Drive or the town sidewalks, going to a movie, renting and riding bikes around the island and down to the point, and other 'lazy day' things.

Emerald Isle has completed bike paths that run the entire length of Emerald Drive, as well as the entire length of Coast Guard Road, which is down to the point. We always use Beach Wheels Bike Rentals at 252-240 BIKE (2453). They deliver bikes straight to the house and pick them up when you are done. You can rent daily, for 3 days, or for the week.

Great Expectations Exceeds Expectation!

  • 5 of 5

Great Expectations was better than we could have ever expected! When my kids were young we went to Emerald Isle for several vacations. Now that they are parents, I thought it would be fun to replicate the experience with their kids (and celebrate my birthday). I wanted the perfect house and luckily I found it! The house is perfect for my sons, their wives and my 5 energetic grandkids (ages 12, 8, 6, and 5). And what a week it was! We were able to relax with the beach just steps away and the pool out our back door. The house is in great shape, the perfect size for everyone, clean, and well equipped. We took the kids fishing on the sound, visited the Aquarium, played putt-putt and hit the water slides. Oh, and my son and I caught 4 large mackerel on a fishing excursion. We headed back to our homes in Ohio, Maryland, and Florida with smiles on our faces and great stories about our week.

Best ocean front home!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is set up perfect. We had ages 7 to 89 year old and accommodated us all. Nice to have one bedroom on main level for elderly mother. Loved the combination inground pool (size was perfect for us) and beach. Kids never asked to go anywhere else for the entire week!! Everything was clean and well kept. We are already talking about coming back!!

Perfect for our family of 11.

  • 5 of 5

Everyone in our family thoroughly enjoyed this property. Mornings in the uncrowded ocean, afternoons in the pool and card games in the dining room. Our ages were: 2 in the 60's, 4 in the 40's, 14, 12, 8 and 3. Plenty of room if someone wanted to get away for a while. We ate in 4 nights and the kitchen was stocked with all the dishes, pots and pans and utensils we needed. Plenty of parking for our 3 vehicles and a boat. We had a minor problem with a circuit breaker and called the owners. Their response was excellent and the problem was resolved.

A great week. Would rent this property again.

Super House!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family. We have small children (2.5 and 4.5 years old) and being on the beach and having the pool were ideal. The house is also situated at a great location on Emerald Isle, close to the EI shops but not too far from the Aquarium or the Morehead City and Beaufort restaurants. It is well appointed, with a large dining room table that could seat all 10 of us, and a comfortable living area. Great bedrooms and bathrooms, too. The owners are lovely and were super helpful in answering our questions about the house.

Beach house

  • 5 of 5

My family (all 10 of us) stayed for a week in Oct. of this year. First time there and all of us want to return sometime. Oct. is a great time of year as the beaches are not crowded, the water still warm and the weather is perfect for fall. Very clean and maintenence was excellent. Photos reflect the property accurately. Had trouble with pool motor and repair was immediatel.

Wonderful house, great location, helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this house twice over the last couple years. The owners have always been helpful and responsive. The house has been in great condition, nicely decorated, and always clean. The pool is a definite must-have for the kids. I recently took my 1-year old son to the beach for the first time, and it was great to be able to come back and relax by the pool after we had too much of the sand! We will be back and would recommend to anyone!
