About Angela Hale
We enjoyed Carolina Dawn for many years before deciding to rent it a few years ago. We've filled it with artwork that we love of local beach scenes, mostly by Beaufort Artist Alan Cheek. We've also tried to make it as comfortable and convenient as possible for families.
Angela Hale purchased this Cottage in 2003
Why Angela Hale chose Emerald Isle
You can't beat the views and the easy access to the beach from our location. Just walk out the back door and down the boardwalk and you're there. Our stretch of beach never seems crowded and there's easy access to shopping, restaurants, entertainment and more.
What makes this Cottage unique
We have dogs who are members of our family so we know how nice it can be to bring them along on vacation. That's why we consider requests for responsible dog owners to bring their well behaved dog to Carolina Dawn.
Local Services & Businesses
Sports & Adventure Activities
This was a beautiful, pet friendly duplex. Lots of amenities for the beach (sand toys, boards, chairs, umbrellas). Wonderfully stocked kitchen for a family that likes to cook.
We had one minor issue with the back door. We called the owner and the manger showed up immediately to fix it.
It was excellent. The home fit our needs perfectly.
The only reason I would not give this home a five star rating is that when we came in on Saturday there was a very strong odor of pets left behind from the previous vacationers. The smell subsided after a couple of days, and most of us were dog owners anyway, so it did not cause us too much distress. I would suggest that this property would be a "5", beyond doubt or question, if you were bringing along a pet!
We're glad Carolina Daw fit your needs perfectly. We strongly encourage our guests to contact us immediately if they have any concerns. We wish you had let us know about the pet odor upon your arrival. We would have addressed it immediately had we known about it. This is the first time we've learned of a lingering pet odor. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.
Amazing Family Vacation
Carolina Dawn is an amazing beach house. It was absolutely immaculate when we got there with comfortable bedding and seating and a fully equipped kitchen. The porch awning is one of the best things about the house. We could sit there in the rain or in the hot sun. The grill was in great shape and there were lots of beach toys to use which made it nice. We highly recommend it for a wonderful, amazing family vacation.
Easiest Vacation Ever
The location of this house was perfect. We are an outdoor family and live "ON" the beach when we are there. We could store all our beach chairs, shade tent, and beach toys at the bottom of the steps, which made daily set up really easy. Also, the drop down to the beach from the walkway was very easy as it was neither steep or long. That really helped our 5 year old granddaughter enjoy the property. The beach itself was beautiful, and because there was no public access to the beach, we felt as if it was our own space.The house itself was very well designed and provided great spaces for "together" time and "alone" time. The décor of the house was done in wonderful taste. We hope to return to this house one day. It was a wonderful experience for our family.
A great family location
Clean, well maintained, very comfortable beds as well as a great location - would definitely stay here again
Great house for a group!
Our party of 9 had a great stay! Tons of grilling out, deck sitting, and fun in the waves. This house had one of the better supplied rental-home kitchens that I've seen. Thanks for an awesome weekend!
Emerald Isle is 20 Minutes from Morehead City, N.C. It's located on a barrier island considered the southern most stretch of the Outer Banks. It's also part of an island referred to as the Crystal Coast, which offers big stretches of white sand and gorgeous blue green waters. Emerald Isle, in particular, is a very family oriented beach and our home is far enough away from condos that it's never crowded. Bring or rent bikes and enjoy miles of bike paths. The North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores is a short drive which offers all kinds of great kids activities. Drive to Beaufort and see the wild ponies on Shackleford Banks.
