4-Bedroom house with 2 full baths, (9 persons max.)
See our many 5-star reviews over the past 5 years. This is a very clean, well maintained and fully furnished ocean front home in beautiful Emerald Isle, NC. It has a full-on ocean view from the deck and house, not partial and not over the street or over rooftops. It is half of a duplex. The other side of the duplex is not a rental; it is a rarely used second home. Unlike staying in a condo complex, you'll have privacy and no worries about crazy neighbors or loud parties. Perfect for families. The house is close to a lifeguard station on the beach (seasonal). The house has everything and the kitchen is fully equipped (even a spare blender, coffee maker & toaster). We provide starter supplies upon your arrival (soap, paper towels, t.p.). It is an excellent value and has everything you'll need for a restful stress-free vacation at the beach. An all-new larger deck was completed not long ago and both bathrooms were renovated in 2017. There is brand new living room furniture as of 2017. All the doors were replaced in 2017 as well. As you can see from all of our photos, we strive to make this a comfortable and tastefully 'beachy' home. Among the features of this property are Spectrum cable tv, STRONG wireless internet (to the deck and further), central air, ceiling fans in every room, 3 flat-screen HD-TV's (42" in living room), and custom hand-painted tropical murals on bedroom walls. It's NOT cheap thin, uncomfortable rattan or boxy furniture, nor is it used furniture from someone's primary home. We want you to relax and be comfortable! Call owner Al directly at nine seven three four seven six eight one nine one with any questions.
There are 2 ocean-front master bedrooms with queen beds and 2 bedrooms street side (partial Sound view) with doubles and singles. There are 2 full baths (1 tub/shower main floor and 1 with shower only upper) and a wonderful outdoor enclosed over-sized locking shower with hot and cold water and a dressing area.
Recent (within the past few years) upgrades include new carpeting, larger deck, renovated bathrooms, new living room furniture, new stove and refrigerator, new kitchen sink & faucet, new TV's, new roof, all new doors, digital entrance lock, and many smaller changes as well. We are constantly upgrading! The landscaping and driveway were completely re-done a few years ago. There are hurricane shutters on all the windows, including lovely coral color Bahama type shutters on the street side windows. More improvements are planned.
There are lifeguards on the beach seasonally about 200 yards away. This house is ON THE BEACH with the same ocean, views, and ease of access as the mansions that cost 3 or 4 times as much. Wouldn't it be nice not to have to drag all your stuff to the beach from a block or more away? There is a huge difference between OCEAN-FRONT and 1 or 2 or 3 houses in from the beach. No carts or wagons needed. Need a drink or suntan lotion while you're at the beach? Just walk up onto the deck and get it! Maybe leave your cooler or the children's toys on the deck walkway for instant access. We appreciate your inquiry and thank you for your time and for considering Beach House! E-mail or call if you have any questions or need any additional information. Best wishes for a great Emerald Isle vacation!

Alan purchased this House in 2001
Why Alan chose Emerald Isle
We considered a beach house in several coastal communities in different states before falling in love with Emerald Isle on our first visit in fall, 2001. We immediately knew that the small town feel, absence of high-rise condos, great vacation amenities, local friendliness, family emphasis and gorgeous uncrowded beach made this the place we wanted to visit again and again. We still enjoy it and you will too!
What makes this House unique
One of our favorite activities is simply to eat most meals on the deck and watch the ocean, the dolphins, people enjoying the beach, and the sunrises and sunsets over the water. There have been a number of weddings on the beach right in front of this home. Some folks see whales just off-shore in the late fall. We have had turtle nests on the beach right in front of this home too. It is fascinating to watch them hatch!

Super Spring Stay
Excellent house. Right on the ocean. Looks like lots of improvements over the winter. Kitchen has everything. Soap, paper towels and t.p. supplied - nice touch. New upper balcony decks great. Loved the custom picnic table on the deck and the new laminate floor and live room tables. Games and puzzles from the closet kept the children busy in a good old fashioned way!
Loved this beach house!
We had a great experience at this house! It was clean and well maintained. Alan and Jerry were extremely helpful and easy to work with. The house is RIGHT on the beach! It's a perfect location! We will definitely be coming back!
Great Spring Stay - Fantastic House ANY TIME OF YEAR
We just returned from a 4-night spring get-a-way at this lovely Emerald Isle home. The location was private and perfect. It is a quiet and secluded area, but not lonely. The other side of the house was not in use so we had lots of room. We have never rented this way before so we were a little nervous. However, the house is exactly as described in the listing and the owner was helpful, thorough and easy to reach. There were LOTS of beach chairs, beach umbrellas and sand toys for the children; it was nice that we didn't have to bring all that. We loved being able to walk right off the deck onto the beach. The ocean water is not too close, nor too far away. The sound of the waves lulled us all to sleep. We're hoping to come back in August! I would definitely recommend this house to all my friends and family.
Excellent Value - Outstanding Oceanfront Views - Very Nice House
If I were Consumer Reports, I would rate this house with their famous bold black solid circle - it truly is the best in its class in every respect. The reservation process was easy, the owner was friendly, and the local manager who met us at arrival was very helpful; a seamless process! The house is even better than described and photographed in the listing. Emerald Isle, NC is simply a wonderful place to choose to vacation and visit. This house made our early spring getaway all the better. It is nicely decorated, comfortable and 'beachy'. The deck is big and roomy, and we liked the minimal steps to get from the house to the deck to the beach; there were no long or steep stairs! The storage room had lots of beach chairs, beach umbrellas, sand toys and games. The inside of the house is very well stocked, especially the kitchen utensils and supplies! We hope to go back soon and will recommend this house to our friends and family.
Clean, well situated, and comfortable. The owner and manager were accommodating and gave us good advice. The kitchen was well-equipped. Only drawback didn't effect our stay, but it is a little small in the living area. There are beds for nine, but only comfortable seating in the living room for six. In the summer in good weather it might not matter. Anyhow, it was a very nice place for a winter beach trip. Lots of seafood available, went to the aquarium, walked miles on the near-deserted beach, and, of course, had great views of the beach and ocean. Was just what we were looking for.
Pefect Place at the Beach!
Perfect! If you like the feel of a laid back, clean, well kept true beach feel, this duplex is the one is for you! Very well decorated with a beach décor and limited breakable "stuff" to worry about. The house is steps from the beach. Comfy furniture including the beds. Well equipped kitchen with anything you could possible need to cook your catch. It worked great for us to enjoy the flounder I caught right in front of the house. A REALLY well stocked storage area with lots of chairs, umbrella and every beach toy you can imagine including a mask, snorkel and fins! Alan wants everyone to have a wonderful time. Alan was great to work with and we will rent this house again, no doubt! I did a lot of research before I chose this house and I know it is a fabulous value directly on the beach.
See dolphins from the house or deck! There is a private walkway from deck to beach over the dunes. The beach lifeguard area is within sight about 600 feet away. Bogue Sound ICW is just 2 blocks away (partial view). Strong Wi-Fi reaches the deck. There are 3 HDTV's. There is a washer and dryer. The Emerald Isle area has many excellent restaurants, from seafood to steak to vegan. Most deliver or offer take-out so you can bring food home or eat out. The kitchen is fully equipped so you can also cook if you prefer. There is an ocean pier in E.I. a few miles away and they offer fishing 24/7 and have all required gear and bait. You'll see ocean para-sailing and wind-surfers. The area has several excellent public and semi-private golf courses nearby. Emerald Isle has abundant shopping and all required services. Loggerback turtles incubate and the eggs will hatch right on the beach near this home; try to experience the joy of seeing them leave their nest and head for the ocean. Make sure you see Civil War Fort Macon in Atlantic Beach!
