About the Property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

This is an elegantly decorated, top floor unit (no one overhead!) unit with 2 bedrooms and two baths in the Ocean Reef complex.
Ocean Reef is a gated community on the Atlantic Ocean in the town of Emerald Isle. The complex's amenities include a pool, tennis and basketball courts, shuffleboard, and direct access by a wooden walkway feet from the unit that provides access to one of the most beautiful beaches on the Crystal Coast. Enjoy the sun in Adirondack chairs on the front porch and watch the ocean waves or rock on the back porch and view the sound.
The Master Suite features and oversized two-person Jacuzzi tub and shower. The living room features an elevated ceiling, large flat screen tv, new couch and an incredibly comfortable red leather recliner.
This unit is one of the better, if not the best, maintained units in the complex and is seldom leased during the off season to reduce wear and tear. Carpet has been replaced by tile through most of the unit. Formica has been replaced by granite. A stainless steel sink has been replaced with a sink to match the granite countertops.
This condo is located on the narrowest part of the island and has both ocean and sound views. The building is situated east to west and has great sunrise and sunset views. There is a great “boardwalk” path direct to the wide sandy beach. Great shells can be found on the beach; “shelling” is a wonderful past time for young and old alike.
PLEASE NOTE: Linens are provided during the peak season only!
This property is offered on a SATURDAY-SATURDAY basis so you're not pushed to leave or to arrive...!
LOOK US UP ON GOOGLE EARTH!!!--The formal address is 2512 Ocean Dr, Emerald Isle, NC, 28594, but to find the CONDO COMPLEX on GOOGLE EARTH type in 'Diane Street, Emerald Isle, NC'--we're the 2nd unit to the left of the swimming pool and tennis courts!

Units are mostly quadruplexes with garages, concrete parking areas, and outdoor showers. The area is beautifully landscaped, and a gazebo lies on the wooden walkway for evening relaxation.

Our unit, 16B2, is on the top floor and looks out one side to the ocean and the other side to Bogue Sound. The ocean side deck has rockers and Adirondack chairs for watching the sun rise or the world go by, or maybe just enjoying one of the many books that live on our shelves. On the sound side, watch the sunset and dunes from a double rocker.

The main living area has cool tile floors and a vaulted ceiling and fan. It is tastefully decorated with a new couch and red leather chair & ottoman, and comfortably furnished and equipped with a brand new flatscreen tv over the fireplace (no longer used), DVD player, VCR, and stereo.

The kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances, granite countertops, an eat-in island, and lots of extras. There's a photo of the eat-in kitchen with 4 red chairs, the granite countertops, and tile floors, BUT NOT SHOWN is a very nice dining room table that seats 6.

The master bedroom has its own door to the ocean side deck, a queen bed, a rattan dresser and rocking chair, bedside table with lamp, TV/DVD player, and double closets. The master bath has a large glass walk-in shower and, to top it off, a huge, mirrored, jetted garden tub.

The 2nd bedroom has 2 twins with new bedcovers, a closet and dresser, and the 2nd bath also has a walk-in shower.

There's a single chair that folds out into a single bed in the living room--brand new, very comfortable, and very unique!

And there's a washer and dryer so you don't have to take a lot of dirty clothes home....

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: We both grew up in Rockingham County NC, in tobacco country about halfway between the Appalachian Mountains and the North Carolina coast. Before we met we were both beach bums of a sort, with Julie having spent much of her childhood summers at her grandmother's place at the beach and Randy having worked as a lifeguard at Myrtle Beach. A lot has happened since then, and now that the twins are off to college we're 'empty nesting' and trying to slow down a bit on our careers.

Why the Owner Chose Emerald Isle, NC, USA:
We love to travel but have always loved the beach. As children our families' vacations were always to the beach and usually included grandparents, friends, and even pets. Emerald Isle has that same feel to it that I remember from back then with long relaxing days and plenty of sand and sun. The beach and the development are quiet and family friendly but still close to shopping and activities that everyone will enjoy like miniature golf and a water park. There are a multitude of restaurants that serve everything including great local seafood. Swansboro is around 12 miles away and has fantastic food and wonderful shops.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The pool,tennis courts, and suffleboard are only one building down and the beach walkway and gazebo are right just across from the pool. There is a shower and hose on the walkway so you don't have to take the sand with you when you leave the beach. Coffee on the deck is a great way to start your morning. Even rainy days can be fun with a visit to the North Carolina Aquarium, one of the finest aquariums on the East Coast, which is just down the road past Salter Path or going to a movie at one of the nearby theaters. Don't forget your bikes! We've ridden our bikes to Morehead City, and now the city of Emerald Isle is, as a part of the Stimulus Program, building a bikeway along the main highway. A good summer evening is a trip to Beaufort, about 20 minutes away and a terrific place for a portside dinner. You can stroll the docks enjoying the sailboats and yachts, or you can visit Blackbeard's Museum where gold, booty, and other artifacts from Blackbeard's recently discovered shipwreck were recovered.
