About Sally Philbrick

Originally Australian, we are a family that appreciates and respects areas of natural beauty. We instantly fell in love with the beautiful waters of Emerald Isle and the relaxed, family-oriented feel of the island. We have created many happy memories here, and look forward to creating many more. We have two young children that love the beach and especially love the bunk beds :)

Sally Philbrick purchased this house in 2012

Why Sally Philbrick chose Emerald Isle

Family friendly :)

Emerald Isle is the perfect location for creating happy family memories. Whitewater Lookout has multiple decks and a reverse floor plan that gives amazing views of the beautiful central coast. Watch the water sparkle and instantly relax.

What makes this house unique

We immediately loved this home when we walked onto the decks, and soaked in the surrounding views. We saw dolphins swimming on our very first time on the deck! We thought we were seeing a rarity, however they seem to like our waters and visit frequently! :)

Guestbook comments from the owner

This home is in the perfect location if you're looking for something just off the beach and affordable. Its an easy 2 min stroll to the beach, another few miles down to the supermarket as well as a nice coffee shop and restaurants at the end of the street. I should add that this is the third time we've been back to Sally's rental and we've loved it each time.

Extremely pleased.

  • 5 of 5

Great house! Very private location and still only a 2 minute walk to the beach. Very kid friendly with lots of toys and dvds and a nice open concept living room/dining room/kitchen area. The multiple decks were nice to sit out on to see and hear the ocean or look out over the trees. We would love to make it an annual family vacation.

Very well maintained and not far from the beach.

Me, my wife, & 2 kids (8 & 10) love our stay. The piece and quite was much needed and the views were beautiful. Loved the setup of the house and all the extras that made our stay feel like a home away from home. The owner was very nice and quick to respond to any questions we had. Would definitely come back and stay again.

Perfect Little Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent our baby moon here and had a wonderful time! The view is amazing!! The house was perfect for the two of us, although it could have fit many more. We had a great time just relaxing and enjoying our quite time. The walk to the beach was quick and easy. Having coffee on the porch early morning looking out at the ocean was one of my favorite morning activities. Shops and restaurants were easy to get to. When in the neighborhood or on the beach you didn't feel crowded. A private little space on the beach is what we enjoyed daily! We would certainly come back and bring our new addition next time! The host is very kind and quick to respond to questions. Overall our trip was the relaxing experience we needed before the big day!!

Home location was ideal. House was immaculate. Views spectacular. Spent evenings on rockers on the deck listening to the waves and sat out in the morning watched the ocean. My teenagers loved the outdoor shower, complete with hot water and privacy. We were attending my brother's wedding and were busy the entire weekend but someone left feeling very relaxed. Sally was an excellent owner with great communication.
