About Walt Sherlin

We live in Raleigh but have been coming to Emerald Isle for about 40 years. We previously owned two properties in Emerald Isle and when we saw this home it was love at first sight. Also, our family has grown and we look forward to having our two sons, their wives, two (and counting?) grandchildren, as well as other family and friends spend many happy days with us in our new beach home. We also look forward to sharing our home with families who want to build lasting memories in a truly special home at an incredible beach.

Walt Sherlin purchased this house in 2015

What makes this house unique

The views from the decks are spectacular. The marsh is teaming with wildlife including many deer. The home is 13 feet above the 100-year flood plain and sits up very high for a beach house. The home sits well off the cul de sac a private driveway and is surrounded on three sides by either the marsh or large trees and beach growth.

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This house is spectacular. The house itself is beautiful and decorated better than a 5-star hotel. There are so many amenities that make the stay thoroughly enjoyable - an elevator, top-of-the-line appliances, gorgeous decks to take in the incredibly beautiful setting, and the pool - oh the pool! My children and nieces and nephew enjoyed hours and hours in this pool as did the adults. The entire home is geared toward relaxation and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The homeowner was very generous and wonderful to deal with as was the property manager. Five stars are not enough!

Wow......what an amazing place! Me, and my family of three and our eight guest, whom arrived at different days throughout the week, All felt as if we were enjoying an exclusive private home on some tropical island, the pool is huge and the game room was great. The views were all great no matter where you were looking. This is a "must visit" pictures don't do it justice. Inside the house was more the you could ask, from spacious bedrooms to large bathrooms and lots of seating for eating and playing games "honestly" , say one of my guest

"This place feels like a retreat center, I can't believe how big the rooms are and the porches are amazing".

Perfect Vacation Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful week here! It is a convenient and very private location with beautiful views and wonderful amenities!

The pool was the biggest and nicest that I have seen in this area, and the zero entry was accommodating for our 4 yr old granddaughter with cerebral palsy. We also appreciated the gates on the decks to help with safety.

The golf cart was convenient, as well as the elevator, the rooms are large and the home is immaculate. We did a lot of cooking there, and were really impressed with how well the kitchen was stocked.

It was fun being able to dock our boat at the slip nearby, and use it all week in addition to the pool and beach.

180 degree views of fireworks were amazing to watch from the top deck! And early in the morning we saw deer chasing each other in the marsh.

It was a perfect week at the beach for us because of this property! Thank you for sharing your amazing home!!

We have been travelling with our friends for years to different beaches and other destinations and have stayed in numerous houses. This house by far is our absolute favorite! There are 10 of us and all 10 of us gives this home a five star! It is absolutely gorgeous inside and out. The amenities that come with the home are outstanding! The owner is extremely efficient in addressing any questions that we would have. We are so thankful that he has opened his home for others to enjoy and make wonderful memories!

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 stayed in this beautiful home two weeks ago. I have to say it is by far the cleanest and best maintained rental we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in many houses, in many locations, over the years. This home is beyond words to describe...beautiful, breathtaking, inviting, and all of the amenities my family needed for the whole week!! The golf cart was definitely a huge plus...delivering us and our belongings to the beach each day. The large pool and whirlpool were immaculate, and the beach was remarkable. We relaxed, swam in the pool, took a family kayaking trip, ate plenty of amazing seafood and enjoyed the beautiful beach. The beach was extremely clean and not crowded. The large game room with pool table provided my competitive boys with a lot of fun!! My family came away with lasting memories that we will cherish for a lifetime. I highly recommend this beautiful home!
