About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 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 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. 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!

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 Central Coast

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.

Great Beach Retreat

  • 5 of 5

2017 was our second time staying at this well appointed property. It offers everything you will need for a costal vacation. From games & puzzles for the little ones to books for adults even rainy days are fun at this property. The bedrooms offer storage for clothing and TV's for chillin' time, if you need it. The kitchen has ample supply of dishes, glasses, flatware & cookware so you can pick up some local seafood and have a feast. Or blend up a cool adult concoction in one of the blenders.

Plenty of space to spread out so everyone can enjoy. The beach is so close you can sit on either deck and enjoy the sounds of the surf.

We look forward to coming back in 2019 for another beach retreat. You will be SO HAPPY you stayed here!

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.

Amazing Long Weekend Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Beach Retreat East. The home was clean, neat, and had amazing views even from across the street. The walk to the beach was quick and simple with the public access just across the road. This side of our family hasn't taken a trip together since 2005 and it was much needed.

We utilized the kitchen to the extreme from cooking breakfast each morning, lunch and snacks throughout the day, and on Saturday night we fixed a big supper with the help of the grill downstairs. There was plenty of room for everyone and a view out the back of the house of the sound as well.

We were a little hesitant heading down through the area after Hurricane Matthew, however we didn't encounter any flooding or detours to discourage us. The owner was very helpful with giving us up to date information about the roads for our travel down to the coast which made our trip even more enjoyable knowing he was so helpful and there to answer any questions rather quickly!

We would definitely stay here again and plan on doing so sometime next year! Thank you again for allowing us to spend the weekend in your home away from home.
