About David Brownlee

This is the second Emerald Isle rental property we have owned since 1995. We chose to have this house designed and built on the sound to provide a private naturalistic setting within short walking distance to the beach. It encompasses the best of both worlds: private Bogue Sound single family home with shallow water boat access, maritime forest and wildlife, plus easy access to the beach. Public access is directly across the street.

David Brownlee purchased this house in 2006

Why David Brownlee chose Central Coast

When you arrive there is no reason to leave. Have dinner with the best water view on the island in your own living room, or out on the screen porch. Kids love the pool area and spend most of their time outside playing and eating in the tiki hut. Great sunrise and sunset views over the water from your own deck due to the south facing direction of Emerald Isle.

Bay Breeze - well built and well located

  • 5 of 5

My family of ten spent a wonderful week at Bay Breeze. The house is constructed substantially, fully equipped, and laid out for a very comfortable, relaxed vacation. The kids used the pool a lot. The entire family used the deck - for boating, kayaking, crabbing (about 20 or so keepers for the week), and fishing with the kids. And most of us enjoyed the beach as well - literally a five-minute walk past three houses. We appreciated that the owners had left a huge wagon with big wheels for the sand in the ground-floor storage closet. We cooked and ate in every night, but one, when we ate at a restaurant in nearby Beaufort. All-in-all, a great vacation.
