About Carol Beaird

We've owned our condo for 19 years and absolutely love Emerald Isle and our quiet corner of it! The location is great! We can even walk to restaurants and stores. Being a gated community, our beach is exclusive to our owners and guests. Our unit was constructed with many extra features... full washer & dryer, central vac, built in microwave, etc. We hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do!!

Carol Beaird purchased this condo in 1996

Why Carol Beaird chose Central Coast

We liked Emerald Isle because it is a 'medium sized' beach... with that small town feel but enough amenities that there is always something to do. We loved Sound of the Sea because of all the open space it provides, you don't feel on top of one another and the location is great being so close to the bridge and the amenities!

What makes this condo unique

We love to visit Swansboro and Beaufort for the great shopping and restaurants. Fishing is great, the Bogue Inlet pier is a mile away. The Aquarium is close by and lots of water activities. We love to golf in Morehead and the gift shops across the street at Emerald Isle Plaza are huge fun!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time vacationing in Emerald Isle & we loved the location of this condo. Right on the beach, the bike path, close to shopping & restaurants. The condo was very lovely with it's decor and amenities - very clean & comfortable. It had all we needed! The complex itself was very well kept. We enjoyed the balconies where we could see & hear the ocean. The owners were very easy to deal with & always responded in a timely fashion! We would definitely recommend this listing!

This was our first time in EI. We absolutely loved the condo. We were pleasantly surprised by the thoroughness and kindness of Carol. She was helpful from start to finish and very attentive to our needs. We would definitely recommend this condo and hope to be back soon! Thanks for a great first visit at EI :)

Great Place, Price and Location!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We travel to Emerald Isle from Ohio and love the area. This is our first stay at this property. We could not be happier. The pools are perfect. The location is perfect. Very close to restaurants and grocery shopping. The room was clean and fully equipped. Very safe area.

We are looking forward to next year already!!! Even when things went wrong Carol made it right! Or package was late arriving to us and we missed that we needed to bring sheets for the pull out. They were supplied no questions!!

We are looking forward to being part of the Sound of the Sea family and will see you next year!!!!

Home by the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

I've been staying at 104 N Sound of the Sea for many years. I love the condo! It has a cozy, beach feel and it helps me relax right away. The layout is nice and open with plenty of windows. It's quiet at night and the other guests have been respectful. Having two pools right there is great!. Beach access is just steps away. The owners have taken care with decorating this home and it really shows. They make improvements to the unit each year. I look forward to seeing what will be new for the next time! It's always clean when I arrive. I like the security gate at the entrance to the resort.

4th time staying in this Unit. We love the comfortable Home Away from Home feel!

  • 5 of 5

It's exciting to know that taking a vacation doesn't have to be stressful in that you don't know what you're getting until you get there. Our first time in this unit was 2012 and we were as tickled then as this year. The unit has been updated since our first time going. We LOVED the new floors, and last year was new painted walls. All the furniture is comfy and beautiful. I had a friend see my pictures and asked me to bring home the beautiful multi-colored chair in the corner. It truly is a beautiful place. We love that we can walk to nearby restaurants, shops and Putt Putt.

The 2 pools are very well kept and it's nice to have the bathrooms. I've taken a lot of beautiful pictures of the complex and the ocean from the balconies.

We are planning on coming next year and hopefully our friends can rent another of Carol's units. She is wonderful to deal with. We really haven't had any reasons to speak to her other than the first year's questions.

The only thing we didn't like is that we felt like we went bed in EI and woke up at home...went way too fast!

We stayed in May for a week. We were amazed at condition of condo. Very beautiful. And Carol was wonderful to work with, absolutely no complaints. Wouldn't hesitate and will stay here again. Emerald Isle and this condo unit because of Carols pleasant attitude was a great experience.
