About the property

Tropical Elegance! Pet-Friendly/7bd/5.5ba/Pool/Hot Tub/Elevator/Sleeps 14!!

In musical terms, 'adagio' refers to a slow, graceful, and leisurely tempo. This showplace exudes tranquility and serenity and serves as the ideal family retreat! Reconnect, recharge, and rejoice at Adagio! Nestled in the upscale and gated Dolphin Ridge community, Adagio in Sea provides travelers with southern tropical elegance, timeless charm, and modern conveniences in this 7 bedroom, 5.5 bath well-appointed and stylishly decorated PET FRIENDLY beach home.

The ocean views from the top floor of Adagio glisten through the prolific windows of the open living/dining/kitchen floor plan. Lovingly renovated by the owners, of whom one is a professional interior designer, the living area boasts 10 full size recliners and a nooked bench seat. Gather around the 55 inch Smart TV with sound bar in the living room or watch a game of pool played across the room on the magnificent Oldhausen pool table. There's plenty of room as red leather bench seats hug two walls of the pool table and kitchen areas. The dining area graciously hosts three separate dining tables, a large rectangular table that seats 8 comfortably, a charming table of four, and an elevated bistro table for 4 at the bar. And the kitchen~~my goodness! The kitchen provides everything you could possibly desire to cook, prepare, and serve a gourmet feast. This well appointed kitchen is delightfully equipped with two dishwashers, two refrigerators, 2 coffee pots, and all the necessary appliances and utensils. The laundry room is perfectly situated off of the kitchen and features the aforementioned bonus refrigerator and stacked washer/dryer. A half-bath is located off of the dramatic top floor staircase. Two bedrooms, a playful children's room with twin trundle beds, and an impressive grand master suite with direct deck access complete the inside of the top level's floor plan.

The middle level of Adagio boasts the majority of the home's bedrooms, all exquisitely decorated in a vibrant kaleidoscope of majestic colors. Two of the four king bedrooms are highlighted with direct ocean deck access. Three of these four king bedrooms are en suite (be sure to check out the gorgeous picture of that illustrious tiled bronze and pumpkin bathroom!) The remaining king bedroom shares a hall bathroom with the queen bed/twin sleeper/sofa chair bedroom. Splendor, rhythm, and sophistication afford each bedroom its own character and every bedroom features a flat screen hi-definition, Bluetooth-compatible TV with Blu-Ray DVD player. Yes, in every bedroom!! For early risers, a second floor coffee station will start your morning as you slip outside to watch the sun peak over the water.

Positioned perfectly on the bottom floor of Adagio is a quiet, 'get-away from it all' crash pad for children of all ages! This bonus/media room features the same premier TV system as in the living area so snuggle into the comfortable king-sized davenport and catch up on your favorite programs and movies! Don't forget your popcorn and drink! The third refrigerator is located right outside the media room~easy access for guests using the pool/hut tub/media room.....and there's a microwave in the media room to boot!

The bottom floor opens directly to the six person hot tub and refreshing swimming pool. The enclosed lawn around the pool sports a delightful lounging area~just add sunshine! Upon entering from the bottom floor, guests will find immediate elevator access for ease in traversing the remaining floors of Adagio.

There's nothing more delightful than strolling down your own private walkway to that endless blue sea! A double benched landing affords guests the most panoramic of views. Adagio abounds with plentiful deck seating on both decks as well. You'll want to watch the sun rise and set off of the two spacious decks stocked with rocking chairs, lounges, and picnic table. The owners provide beach chairs and beach towels for guests' use.

Parking is never a concern as the driveway will comfortably allow up to seven vehicles. As the owners are fellow dog lovers and owners, they understand the importance of bringing your dog on vacation. Adagio is pet friendly! Please understand a non-refundable pet fee will be charged per dog.

Great vacation, excellent location, perfect house

  • 5 of 5

I don't usually write reviews, but I felt compelled to review this home. It's really a perfect beach family vacation house. We had 11 adults and 5 kids (all under 6), and it never felt crowded. The house is very well maintained. The kitchen is well-stocked with cooking necessities (other than food), plenty of towels in the bedrooms, linens, super comfortable beds, plenty of beach toys/chairs, etc. The location really couldn't be any better. You'll have your own private boardwalk to the beach directly from the back deck. The kids had a blast watching for dolphins off the back deck and on the beach. We were there Easter week, and the beach was not crowded at all. Perfect weather, too (high 70s, low 80s). You're a short drive to shops and restaurants in town, or take a slightly longer trek down the island (30 mins) to check out Atlantic Beach and/or Beaufort, NC (wild horses, maritime museum, etc.) Both worth the relatively short drive. The aquarium, just 25 mins away, is worth a trip, too. Plus, Shannon @ Angelfish couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful. All in, this is a great home, in a great location, making for an ideal vacation!

Fabulous Place!

  • 5 of 5

This home was everything it was cracked up to be! My family of 12 had such a great time! The floorpan allowed for privacy yet also provided space for the times we all wanted to be together.

The house is very well equipped (every size of pot and pan available, I'm sure). Angelfish Properties does an excellent job in maintaining it and they were so good to work with. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone and look forward to returning myself!

This House Will Be Like Home

  • 5 of 5

I want to compliment the owners of this house for thinking of dozens of details that made their home feel like our home during our recent stay. The kitchen is insanely well-equipped (BUT take a knife sharpener because one of my only complaints is how dangerously dull every knife in the house is and that's a mistake I won't make again), the location is quiet, and every room in the house has enough towels, washcloths, hangers and laundry baskets to make everything work effortlessly. Same for beach supplies, ridiculously well-kept and so useful for the whole family. The only drawback is that this house does not have an unobstructed view of the ocean and the deck chairs seat you at a height that gives you a full view of the top of the balcony railing and nothing more. If you like to be hypnotized by the waves crashing onto shore or even keep an eye on kids from the balcony, you'll have to camp out on a blanket on the deck. Such a small thing in the grand scheme of how wonderful this house truly is, that I only mention it because it seemed like a strange oversight in the construction (and not one I've experienced at a lot of other houses before). We would come again because everything was in such great shape. Truly, one of the best houses we've ever had at Emerald Isle and worth the money.

Sounds Of The Beach

  • 5 of 5

Adagio by the Sea was redone beautifully. Not only are you on the beach and can hear the sounds of the ocean but the interior was decorated for any musical enthusiast. This Beach house has the class to reach all ages that reside in it's dwelling. Family oriented from the amount of beach toys, boogie boards, chairs, umbrellas that are stored for usage by the people that rent it out, we didn't need to bring nearly all of the things we did. The utilities were all new and easy to use. 3 Refrigerators, two on the top floor one on the bottom for more than enough storage space. Coffee maker not only on the main floor but a Keurig right outside the bedrooms on the second floor with massive coffee cups only a few feet away. Pool tables, movie room, surround sound, my children loved every part of this house. We even had 2 Deer that greeted us our first night. They were grazing in the bushes off of our walkway and we had a chance to sit and watch them on the porch. I am not a person who writes reviews, unless something blows me away and needs a kudos or something very bad happened. I am happy to say my entire family was pleased and wants to know if we can get this place again next year. So my only complaint will be if someone takes the week I am looking at booking it for future dates.
