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.

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!
A great family location
Clean, well maintained, very comfortable beds as well as a great location - would definitely stay here again
Beautiful home. Perfect for our family vacation.

Comfortable Casual Beach Get-a-Way Post Graduation
You can't get better than right on the beach - in the center of Emerald Isle. This a very comfortable beach home - everything worked great and the owner got back to us immediately on a couple questions. There was a brief lightning storm, and we easily re-set the power and internet. The beds were comfortable, the bbq worked great, the kitchen well appointed and the beach chairs were a plus. You don't need to pamper this home, but enjoy it's relaxed furnishings and space. It was a great place to relax after the hustle and bustle of college graduation. Just remember to bring your own blow dryer, soap and shampoo. We enjoyed the Crab Shack down the road, and easy access to the grocery store.
We had the best stay. The atmosphere at Emerald Isle is laid back and totally relaxed and this home is even better. The numerous decks and proximity to the beach can not be beat. Amazing house and tremendous value. I would recommend to anyone.
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.
