About Gail Knapp/

My family & I live in Kinston, NC where I have a Chiropractic practice. My wife, Lisa & I have 3 amazing children. We have really enjoyed our beach house but at this time our children are involved in sports & different activities so it is sometimes hard to enjoy our home at Emerald Isle. We would like to share our home with you in hopes that you will fall in love with Emerald Isle such as we have over the past 12 years.

Gail Knapp/ purchased this house in 2003

Why Gail Knapp/ chose The Point

This house was custom built by a local contractor from my home town. I was available at every inch of the construction. We chose this location because we were close enough to the ocean to walk but far enough to be safe from summer storms. We take great pride in the expansive decks on every floor. We are also very close to the most popular beach driving access for fishing, sea shelling discoveries and swimming.

Also available for long term rental sept through may.

What makes this house unique

Expansive Decks on every floor that has a panoramic view of the ocean, inlet & inter coastal waterway, covered parking access for easy unloading, luxury living furnishings. Great location for golfing, outdoor adventures, dining and exploring.

Great Fall Trip....Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Spent the last week of October at Emerald Isle in this house and it couldn't have been any better. Everyday was in the 70's which didn't hurt but the house was everything we expected and in a great location down on the point. We had one small issue with the hot water heater which was resolved very quickly (thanks Gail) so we had no complaints. I would definitely stay here again if I make another trip to Emerald Isle.

Very nice. Great space. Great location.

  • 4 of 5

We really loved this property. Great views and great location for the beach and the sound. Being close to The Point is a huge plus for our family. TV's in every bedroom was a big hit with our family. The beds were a little firm but most nights we were so tired we didn't mind much. The wifi can be a little inconsistent.

Perfectly situated at the Point with awesome views!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a beautiful and immaculate house! The views all around are spectacular as you get some beach and some sound views! It is a very short walk to the beach with two choices of entry. The Point offers an immense beach with low tide pools and some sand bars you can walk out to for a fun "stranded isle" feel. The beach never feels crowded. We will be back!

Infrastructure versus Knapp Properties service

  • 4 of 5

The air conditioning equipment was not well maintained prior to our arrival, but Knapp Properties went above and beyond the call of duty to have it cleaned and repaired. Ken Knapp stayed with the AC repairman until the system repair was complete and purchased filters for the systems very promptly. We had a special needs visitor and needed the elevator. Knapp properties contacted the owner on our behalf and negotiated the use of the elevator without incident. Very pleased with Gail and Ken Knapp of Knapp Properties.

The house was gorgeous. The beds were a little hard to sleep on but, that was okay. We loved just being there. Lots of parking (We took a few friends with us). The owners were very responsive and kind. The only flaw was that we were not aware of the walk to the beach. It is not far but, I have a friend who had an injury to her leg before coming so it was hard for her to get to the beach. But, other than that... we would definitely go back to stay again!
