About Pat McElraft

We are a retired Marine family who has traveled extensively across our country and chose Emerald Isle over all the many places we have experienced. We are both active in our community and our state and enjoy crossing the Emerald Isle bridge at the end of the day leaving the stress behind and coming to 'Paradise'.

Pat McElraft purchased this house in 1992

Why Pat McElraft chose Central Coast

We came to Emerald Isle for a vacation and stayed for a lifetime. My husband and I fell in love with the Crystal Coast and our little piece of Heaven, Emerald Isle. We have been fortunate to have our duplexes and wanted to share them with others.

What makes this house unique

Vaya con la Vista has one of the most incredible views on Emerald Isle. Located on a high dune, you can see for miles. Numerous activities such as shopping, movie theater, putt-putt golf, waterslide, restaurants are within walking distance. Safely located on a cul-de-sac and very near Emerald Isle's new bike and running path, allows for fun biking for the entire family.

Great location, Ok House.

  • 3 of 5

Great location on the beach, near the bridge and grocery store. We failed to ask if maintenance and repairs were complete before renting. Disappointed in the condition of the house.

Owner's Response: Sometimes at the end of the rental season things aren't as fresh as the beginning. This renter was very interested in getting another discount. The house has been updated with new granite countertops, new cabinets, new tiled baths.
