Property description

...................you have your own pool and hot tub too.

Close your eyes and imagine...your day begins with a steaming cup of hot coffee in hand as you lean up against a mountain of pillows in bed and watch the waves crash against the shore for as far as your eye can see. Longing to spend the day just like this, you remember that the family is gathering in the upper gazebo, to watch the sunrise over the ocean. The sound of many voices speaking at once greets you, as you listen to them excitedly discuss the many options for the day.

And the options are many - day trips to sight see or shop in Morehead City, Swansboro, New Bern or even Wilmington, a ferry ride to Bear Island for shelling and solitude, a kayak ride in the ocean or among the shallows in Bogue Sound, a pontoon or power boat rental at a nearby marina, a bike ride into town along the bike path that winds through the island.

But with the morning progression, you day dream of watching the sunset over Bogue Sound while relaxing in the outdoor hot tub. You now ponder a leisurely day under the beach umbrella reading a novel while the kids dash in and out of the waves with their boogie boards and build enormous sand castles on the beach.

Our hunt for the perfect beach home occurred over eight or ten years. We visited resort towns in five states and found the friendliest beach with the best value and atmosphere right here in Emerald Isle. We wanted a clean, wide beach with sparkling blue/green ocean water just in reach so our access to the beach is simply a walk out of our front door.

And, would you appreciate having a selection of restaurants with delicious local seafood caught daily? Would you like them to be close by with no long lines to contend with? (Are you already getting the idea that we’re quite picky?) And as everyone knows, no one EVER goes to the beach to clean house or make beds. Upon arrival you will find the house clean with linens and towels that we provide laid out.

We wanted to make sure that our guests can invite plenty of friends and extended family. Beach houses are for sharing, and our beach house is so big you may lose someone if you’re not careful. Imagine the luxury of having two living rooms, one for the children and one for the adults.

Last but not least, Emerald Isle has all of the trimmings of most beach communities, but doesn’t overwhelm you and it keeps its prices to a manageable scale. You'll be able to start saving for next year!

We have included sixteen pictures on our web site to educate you. Seeing the pictures is important but it is a MUST to watch the VIDEO, which ties the pictures together and tells a complete story. For important and excellent area information please email us. We want to meet your needs rather than try to sell you something so check out Emerald Isle for yourself and ask any additional questions you have.

Like all owners we try to put our best foot forward but don't listen to us........see what past renters have said by reviewing the comments section.

Check the online calendar to make sure the dates you want are available before contacting us. We do keep it up to date.

Thank you so much for visiting our website.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I live in the Maryland suburbs of Washington DC and raised two children. I am a CPA with a small tax/accounting practice and a money coaching program. I recently started a podcast called "Financial Karma" where I discuss money matters, interview fascinating guests about the meaning behind money and the health and wellness required for financial success. When I'm not at the beach making the house ready for visitors or keeping up with maintenance, I travel, help my children, family and aging parents. I walk, read and craft but spend most of my time in my active social life and being of service to others. Mine is a rich and joyful life.

Why the Owner Chose The Point, Emerald Isle, NC, USA:
My extended family and I traveled up and down the East Coast for annual summer reunions and stayed at a number of great beaches until the late 1990's. When we found Emerald Isle we knew we had found our "home" for summer travels. After a time, I bought this oceanfront property because I knew I had found the right one for me and had a strong need to experience the sense of openness and freedom the beach provides me. I love being able to share it with my guests every summer and in some of the off-season months. I have travelers from Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, New York, Tennesee, Kentucky, the Carolinas and more.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I'm not bragging when I say I have the best view on Emerald Isle. This is because the house is situated at "The Point" where the Atlantic Ocean and Bogue Sound meet.........BY THE WAY, the traveler map on this site does NOT show the house in the right place, it's not at the end of the street Bogue Court but is in fact at the corner of Bogue Court and Inlet Drive, with the ocean right in front of you, with an unobstructed view. Spectacular. The pool, hot tub and second floor gazebo are very popular and fun for the whole group. As to the inside, the house is an inverted floor plan, so the top/second floor is the living/dining/kitchen/wet bar area with plenty of windows. The master bedroom and full bath with tub and glass shower are also on this top floor as well as a powder room. The first floor has four bedrooms (one of which makes a great kid bunkroom) and three full baths as well as a second living room area and a laundry room. Our end of the island is easy to get to and from during the busy summer because when you come across the bridge, you immediately turn and avoid the "downtown" Emerald Isle area.
