Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Pam and I are in our 48th year of marriage, with three adult sons, three terrific daughter in laws, and five lovable grandchildren.. We have lived in Durham since 1975 and Bob grew up in Raleigh.

Why the Owner Chose Emerald Isle, NC, USA:
Starting in 1977 we have been coming to Emerald Isle for at least one week a year. Over the years Pam and I and our boys have stayed in several duplexes on the island. When we found this one, we fell in love with it after less than 5 minutes of "inspection". We thought that renting primarily to families might get a more thoughtful clientele for whom we could securely provide more services. We believe such folks would within reason take care of the property while enjoying their stay, so that whoever followed them would also have the same type experience.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Aquarius East offers a private walkway to the large private dune deck, full main decks separation, and solid soundproofing that give this duplex a very realistic feel of staying in a single family space. Because of its location on the lot and that of the houses to the East (Aquarius and the beach face due South), there is a full beach view all the way to Atlantic Beach. The South facing beach also means in the winter, when there is the typical wind from behind, (north) the top deck is quite warm and one can often sit there on a 50 degree day in a t-shirt and shorts. Furthermore you can see the sun rise out of the ocean and set into the ocean, often with spectacular sunsets. Having two full decks, one open, one covered is an added bonus. We have been able to up the amenities substantially for less than comparable rental units. These are linens, towels, made beds, beach towels, spices, laundry and dishwasher detergent, high quality (Pantene) shampoo and conditioner and Oil of Olay soap dispensers in all 5 indoor showers, beach chairs and umbrellas, and kids plastic beach toys.
