About Wendy Whitley

I grew up going to Emerald Isle with my family. My dad loved to fish! We have lots of friends that own places there so we really enjoy going and just hanging out with friends. Of course our children and grandchildren enjoy going also.

We are from Wilson, NC, so it is only about a two hour drive for us. As soon as you drive across the bridge it is like another world!!!

Wendy Whitley purchased this house in 2010

Why Wendy Whitley chose Central Coast

My first love for the beach, has always been Emerald Isle. It is a beautiful beach, with such a family atmosphere. There is a great bike bath that runs right in front of the house. Take your morning jog or ride the bikes out of the traffic. I like the fact that Emerald Isle is not so commercialized, more of that get out and enjoy the fresh air with your family kind of place.

What makes this house unique

Great Price And You Are Only A Short 500 Ft. Walk To The Beach Access. Brand New Beach Access Just Completed This Year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful decor, lots of little quiet areas to get away by yourself for a minute, and just a block from the beach entrance! Wendy was great to work with. She was very attentive and quick to process the return of my security deposit. A fabulous vacation. Didn't want to leave!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was immaculate, beautifully decorated and the layout worked perfectly for us. A very short walk to the beach and quick ride into town. The outdoor porch for meals was ideal with a great breeze. Outdoor shower and hoses outside were key coming from the beach with kids! We would definitely stay there again if we don't end up buying our own piece of paradise in Emerald Isle 😀. My only recommendation to future renters would be to bring TP. We got in late after 13 hours of driving and no TP was left behind or paper towels to wipe our hands after washing. We would've also brought some cleaning supplies to clean up any small messes we might've made. (Sponge, windex, broom). Owners are very responsive and a pleasure to work with. Thanks for the awesome memories!

Owner's Response: I am so sorry that was not taken care of. The cleaning crew is always supposed to leave toilet paper and paper towels. I don't know what happened but I will check into it and make sure it doesn't happen again. I will also make sure there are cleaning supplies left. I left some when I cleaned for the first renters, but it most have all been used up. Thank you so much for your suggestions. It only helps me to improve all renters experience and helps me to know what needs to be improved on. So glad that you had a good time. Hope you will come back again.

Great family vacation!

  • 4 of 5

Beautifully decorated, spacious cottage with all the amenities of home. Very clean and included some extras like a crock pot and smoothie machine. Washer/dryer was a bonus. Lots of seating and outdoor living space; we enjoyed sitting on the front deck in the early mornings. Large TVs with cable, games for families to play, and Two minute walk to the beach, excellent location for shopping and dining. We enjoyed the aquarium and kayaking in the sound. Jackie and Wendy were very accommodating and quick to respond to questions. We will definitely stay here again and would recommend it to friends and family.

A Great Place to Stay on Emerald Isle

  • 4 of 5

The home was spacious and brightly decorated with comfortable beds and a bonus of two full baths. There are plenty of outdoor seating areas and seats. It is a short walk to the beach and also not too far from the shopping areas. It had some amenities not found elsewhere such as a washer and dryer. The hosts, Wendy and Jackie, are friendly, very helpful and easy to contact. We really enjoyed our stay and recommend it. Just note that there are stairs in the home for anyone who needs to consider this.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay here. I needed a place for a few weeks while I was having my house repaired. The house is spotless and very cute. I would stay again in a heartbeat. Wendy and Jackie are so nice. Great place to come with family.

What a wonderful Beach Rental, We had a Golf Cart but the walk to the beach is not bad at all maybe 5 mins, Listening to the Ocean from the Front porch was relaxing.. the pictures really do this house no justice.. it's a wonderful home that will make your stay away from home.. feel just like being at home.. Would recommend this home to anyone, Wendy you have truly been the nicest person we have ever rented a rental from.. Thanks again, for everything, The River's Family
