About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Full Baths, (Sleeps 12)

This 2nd row beauty has it all! Great ocean views without the oceanfront rental prices (and it's CLEAN)! Over 2,000 sq feet, on a quiet, non-busy street with a view of the ocean or Bogue sound from every single window in the house! Make this your 2nd home for a week (or two) and you'll never want to leave.

We want your family & friends to have a great experience and forget all of their worries while making great memories that will last a lifetime. Sound too good to be true or too much like a Hallmark card? Well we aren't kidding!

Wake up every morning and walk directly out of your bedroom onto the deck and breathe in Emerald Isle's salty air. Hear the waves crashing on the beach. House has 4 bedrooms with Queen beds (all with deck/balcony access) plus a kids' loft/entertainment area on the 4th level with 4 twin beds complete with books, games, puzzles, a TV and DVD player. In the den you can even watch TV, look to your left and see the ocean... of course, that's just from the inside, wait until you step out onto the decks!

Beach access is literally steps away across the street with a wooden walkway leading directly to the surf. Families with young kids will enjoy this convenience by not having to walk far with all your beach supplies and stuff! You also have the convenience of our exhilarating outdoor shower with hot/cold water to wash off the beach sand and lotion.

Cook all of your favorite 'beach foods' in our fully equipped kitchen while looking at the emerald blue ocean. Then dine and entertain inside with family & friends while enjoying the great ocean views from the large eating area or have your meals outside on the deck's large teak dining table with umbrella where the view and sounds of the ocean enhance the experience.

Watch schools of dolphins in the morning swim by & flocks of pelicans dive in for a snack in the afternoon. If you need some shade, head down to the lower level deck & relax on one of our lounge or rocking chairs. Of course, the decks have great views, but nothing can beat hanging out on the beach & swimming in the ocean. After a long day, enjoy our outdoor shower (w/ hot & cold water) and indulge in some great local seafood at one of many restaurants within minutes of the house. After the kids have gone to sleep, sneak back out on the deck and look at the moonlight shine over the water with a glass of your favorite beverage. Get the best sleep of your life (as long as you put on plenty of sunscreen) and wake up ready to do it all over again!

I hope some of these words have captured just a small picture of what it is like to vacation at Beach Retreat: East. We have posted lots of pictures but nothing compares to actually being here. We truly look forward to helping you and your family have an amazing 'Beach Retreat', so please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions, comments or concerns.

If you are vacationing with multiple families, please see dates for Beach Retreat West, listing #395470. Rent both sides and vacation together.

Thank you for visiting our page and we hope your toes are in the sand very soon!

My happy place

  • 5 of 5

Our family had another wonderful family beach trip. Your house is so comfortable and convenient that we just keep coming back. After many stays here, all of the children have come to feel at home. On arrival, everyone knows which bed is theirs. The layout provides privacy, and the main living area is great for gathering. We always have everything we need to prepare meals. We love the outdoor shower to leave the sand outside. Even the foot hose is very convenient after evening walks on the beach. I love to sit on the deck with morning coffee, looking out onto the water with the breeze in my face, listening to all my children and grandchildren talking and playing together in one house. My happy place. Thank you. Cheryl, Raleigh, NC

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect house for a large family! The living area is spacious and the bedrooms are cheery and good-sized. The house is harge enough for the kids to hang out in the loft (which is also spacious and has 4 twin beds, a TV and DVD player) while the adults watch TV downstairs, " catch- up" around the large dining room table or enjoy the porches with comfortable seating, cool breezes and great views!

Though it is not oceanfront, it is a short walk to the beach since the beach access is right across the street.

Our family made a lot of good memories here this summer! Sammy (the owner) could not be more responsive and pleasant to work with! Great guy! Great vacation!

A Wonderful Trip!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We had a wonderful time. We had our two children and their spouses, along with five grandchildren (and one on the way). Our grandchildren are ages two through six. We all enjoyed the house. The room at the top was the BEST!!! The house is beautifully decorated and we loved the arrangement. We try to go to Emerald Isle every year and I think this house is by far the most comfortable we have stayed in. The walkway to the beach is right across the street. So it was very convenient. Thanks so much for such a great vacation!

Thanks again, Gary and Betty Wilson

Amazing Views from 2nd Row Duplex

  • 5 of 5

This house was awesome and the owner very attentive. My family and I totally enjoyed the views, the rooms in the house itself, the decks and the closeness to everything. I highly recommend this house for larger families or reunions. Very clean and the most well stocked kitchen I've ever stayed in. Well worth the money. Thank you for the wonderful memories!

Great House Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific week at Beach Retreat East. Plenty of space for all of us and such easy beach access. It was like having beach front, but without the expense. Having a grill was a bonus for cooking outside. The house was clean and well updated. So quiet! We'll look forward to coming back again.

Wonderful trip/Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 families with a total of 10 people stay at the duplex. The accommodations were great with the place being very clean and up to date. The outdoor shower and brand new gas grill were perfect for our group. With the beach being a very short walk across the street, the location was great as well.

About Sammy Roberson

Our family has enjoyed the Crystal Coast for the past 30 years, always renting out the same cottage. Brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, moms, dads & grandparents have come together once a year to laugh, eat, swim, ride go-karts, play putt-putt, lay out, read books, & just enjoy each other's company. Kids have grown up & now even have kids on the way. In our wildest dreams we never imagined we would have our own beach house in Emerald Isle and be able to provide quality beach experiences & memories to other families. It is truly a blessing! So please make sure you sign our guest book & tell us all about your vacation before you leave!

Sammy Roberson purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Sammy Roberson chose Emerald Isle

Emerald Isle has the most gorgeous beaches on the east coast with a huge bonus: they aren't crowded! Emerald Isle retains its barrier island character with friendly locals and great seafood. Short distance to nearby towns for great shopping, eating and exploring life on the water front. You'll never want to leave!

What makes this cottage unique

We love relaxing on the decks, sipping a favorite beverage & enjoying the gorgeous ocean views. You can hear the waves crashing & the ocean is only steps across the street. It's so peaceful walking on the beach ,watching the birds, and taking pictures of the occasional school of dolphins swimming by. The beach is also not crowded at all.
