About Deanna Feddersen

We are a family of five with a long history on Emerald Isle. This is our first of two oceanfront properties (Sea Glass is down the street--VRBO #450679). We've spent many weeks at EI over the last 25 years and love every minute of our time there---all year 'round---whenever we visit our second home and know you will too!

Deanna Feddersen purchased this house in 1994

Why Deanna Feddersen chose Emerald Isle

This is an awesome choice for a small or large group. With the option of renting Attitudes (VRBO #489570), the double doors open to give you a total of 10 bedrooms! Stroll the tideline at sunset or pedal your bike to the food-mart on the bike path for early morning groceries or coffee. Lounge oceanside on the beach or on the vast decks all week long and take in the amazing sunrises and sunsets over the emerald Atlantic.

Beautiful Emerald Isle Oceanfront 5 Bedroom Duplex: 'Changes in Latitudes'
average rating of 4.25 based on 8 reviews

Great location for family vacation, quiet and roomy house, the kitchen is excellent

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house and excellent location. Close enough to the beach so you could walk 2-3 times to beach a day without worry if you have everything you need for the kids. You can surf fishing right there ... at night ... you can chasing crabs on the beach with your kids. Oh ... wifi is working fine the whole time we were there so if your kids are so worry about that.

Perfect location just over the bridge to the island and central to grocery stores and restaurants .

  • 3 of 5

On the beach so access to the sand and water is perfect. The home is older and some of the furniture needs updating; specifically the living room table was beat up and two chairs had cushions that needed cleaning or replacing. The couch was good. Some cracks in the tiles; one was huge. The kitchen and all appliances were good. The pots and pans were worn out. The throw rugs in the living area and main hallway were curled up on the edges and represented a tripping hazard. Up stairs had nice carpeting and all three bathrooms were good. During stormy weather and hard rain we had a leak in one of the main bedrooms that soaked a third of the carpet. The TV in the main living area was a small LED with a cable system that was slow and sluggish and only got 10 or so channels (needs improvement). Overall I was somewhat satisfied by the home but a small expenditure by the owner to update the very worn items would have made all the difference in the world. The locations was the best you could have and this is my 10th visit to the island in the last 30 years.

Owner's Response: Latitudes is in an excellent location on the oceanfront--super centrally located on the island with tons to do. Glad you had a great visit on Emerald Isle and do hope you come back...hard to find a house at this price-point that has the option of 5 bedrooms or 10 if you rent both sides :) but yes, it's an older home with tons of character. Brand-new carpet upstairs but we're having issues with the new slider doors when it rains a certain way, though we think it is a porch roof issue that we're trying to figure out. Most folks have not used the TV/Cable option as they have internet/Netflix preferences so we have a basic setup. We tend to replace worn items (the one tile crack can't be fixed without replacing the entire sub- and tile floor unfortunately due to structural limitations) like area rugs and cushions in the spring and will certainly give attention to those things at the end of the rental season. Thanks for your concerns and review!

Great property

  • 4 of 5

Nice vacation house with lots of room! We love Emerald Isle and had a great week with our extended family! The porch furniture (table and chairs, swing) were such a nice bonus. One unexpected - no cable tv... just FYI!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay! We have found that most guests use Netflix and the internet for their TV needs instead of cable so the home is equipped as such though we do have local basic cable. Thanks for staying!

Lattitudes was perfect for our graduation celebration!

  • 5 of 5

Access to the beach couldn't have been better. The kitchen provided everything we needed and all the seating, both inside and out, was ample for our family gathering. Deanna provided all the instructions we needed to make the week perfect and the property manager even stopped by to ensure we had everything we needed. We would definiately recommend Lattitudes!

Car: recommended

The home is on a prime oceanfront lot and if you put in the address (9251 Ocean Drive) , GoogleMaps incorrectly puts it on the sound side so I have removed the house icon from map for Latitudes' description. See photos for further evidence of location :)
