Why Kenn or Gail Knapp chose Emerald Isle
We began traveling from Greensboro, NC, to Emerald Isle in 1962! Our family has grown, the beach has changed, the house has been rebuilt after several hurricanes, but we still love it! We know you will also...
What makes this House unique
Emerald Isle is a beautiful beach, and this particular stretch is even nicer because it is not crowded. The house has been specifically set up for family groups to be able to eat together, play together, and enjoy the summertime! And by the way, we had a new deck built in 2017. And the 2 upstairs baths have been completely upfitted as of 2017!

First trip to EI
Our large family enjoyed our stay at the sail fish. The seven bedrooms gave us the space we needed. The linens were very nice for a rental. The house was clean. The kitchen is a little outdated but the stove was very nice. The water was warm and the beach is beautiful. The sevent two steps is a challenge for older people. It
This is such an amazing property for a large family or multiple couples! Great use of the space. Perfect access to the beach and a great view of the beach from the second floor deck. Gail was delightful to deal with. The house was clean, the furniture was a little outdated but still very usable. The ping-pong table was a huge hit! We would definitely stay here again!!
Great location. Accommodated our needs. Beautiful space and amenities. On the beach. Mgrs very attentive and easy.
Excellent vacation home!
The Sailfish exceeded our expectations! We enjoyed the layout of the house, with bedrooms upstairs and down. We have year-old twin grandchildren, so having doors by all the stairs was very helpful. The house is spacious, and we enjoyed the large table, plus the game room next to the living room and kitchen. It was great to have a refrigerator upstairs and downstairs.The view of the ocean was wonderful from the deck, and the beach was never crowded. It was a close walk, but there were quite a few steps to get there. There were lots of beach toys, chairs, and hats to use at the house. Parking is plentiful, and the location is great. The owner was very helpful in answering questions I had prior to the trip. We would love to return there next summer!
Thanks so much Dianne!
Great Vacation Home!
The accommodations were excellent. Loved the fact that they had bedrooms up and down. My grandchildren were able to take naps downstairs during the day away from the noise of other family members and it gave adult children their own space when needed. Loved having a nice big table for family dinners and having pots big enough. We took our own chairs, canopy and life jackets for the grandchildren which wasn't necessary. The house provided all we would have needed! Next time we will know! We liked having refrigerators and bathrooms up and down. Easy access to the beach. Owner responded quickly to questions I had before our trip. She gave contact information in case we needed her during our stay. I would recommend this house and plan to rent it again the future! The price was a plus too!
Great home for large family!
We had a beautiful week at Emerald Isle. The beach and ocean are exceptionally beautiful there. At low tide, the grandchildren enjoyed the tide pools and one day there was an abundance of sea life to see just in the tide pool. We just loved it and we will definitely return. The Sailfish met all of our needs! We are a large family with children, and grandchildren. This home has 7 bedrooms - 4 on the main living level: two on either side of the family room kitchen area, with a buddy bath between each. Two of these bedrooms have a double bed, and the other two have two double beds. Off of the main family room and kitchen level there is a sun room that is perfect for playing cards and board games. Downstairs, there are 3 more bedrooms, one has twin beds, one has a double bed and one has a queen bed. The downstairs also has a small kitchenette, laundry room and 2 more baths, and another family/game room. The upstairs level and downstairs level both have decks that face the ocean and are nice to sit on and relax. The upstairs deck, which is very spacious, has a great view of the ocean and there are plenty of deck chairs for everyone to enjoy the ocean view. This home sits on a very large and private lot and the beach access is right across the road. Marcie the owner and Al the local maintenance gentleman were both very efficient in answering any questions or concerns that came up during our stay. Our family was very comfortable staying in the Sailfish, it is a practical and spacious home that is "very well loved" by its owners.
It is a great home for a large family to really enjoy each other at the beach!! Highly recommended :)
