About the property

3 BR, 2 Bath Beach Access At End Of Street Less Than 1 Block

Let the stress of your life end and the adventure of vacation begin, the minute you pull into the drive way. Set away from the road and surrounded by trees this is the perfect coastal escape. Adorable 3 bedroom/2bath beach cottage.Lots of space when you first walk in the door, with an open kitchen/family room plan. Kitchen bar that seats 5 and table/chairs for 4. After dinner enjoy the backyard stone fire pit with swings ,hammock and lots of privacy . Ready for bed, no problem, there are two queen beds and a set of double bunk beds which gives plenty of room for every family member to stretch out and have a space of their own. There is a TV in every bedroom/family room and Wifi throughout. Take your pick, walk in shower or shower/tub combo. Cool features of this house include a large front porch(with dog gate) to sit on after a full fun filled day at the beach, or walk around and grill out on the back patio. Want to go "totally island", try the outdoor shower, you'll never want to shower inside again. Very short walk to the beach, but just in case you need some extra hands, we have a beach caddy. And don't forget to use our Men's/Women's/Children's bikes to take a ride to the the local ice cream parlor after dinner.

Bring your clothes because that is about all you will need..sheets, towels, beach towels, chairs are all included. Lots of parking, so pack up and we will see you at Emerald Isle. Blue sky, white sand, beautiful ocean awaits.

Pretty and clean and thoughtfully stocked

  • 5 of 5

Overall great experience, very clean and nice, Mary has done a fantastic job fitting out the home with many welcoming touches, like kids swings and a fire pit. Very close to beach and in a quiet neighborhood. Beds are comfortable and everything works.

Very Clean Property

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival the house was very clean and neat. Everything was provided that created a relaxing, enjoyable week. The home was conveniently located to the beach and nearby shops within walking distance. Will definitely look to stay here again if in the area.

Perfect beach rental for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time during our stay. The house was perfect for my whole family, dogs and toddler included. The owner Mary was great and provided any and everything needed for a stay. Well stocked kitchen, plenty of towels, movies, bikes, beach chairs and more. Water bowls and dogs toys were provided and lots of extra toiletries that made the house feel like a "home away from home". My whole family had a great time and we can't wait for our next visit!! Would highly recommend!

Beachbound was wonderful!!!! The home was beautiful in addition the yard and decks were wonderful. Having stayed in many beach rentals it was extremely clean which is unusual from our experiences. Mary Em, the owner, provides the necessities along with so many additional items like beach chairs, boogie boards, beach games, books, beach towels (in addition to the linens in the house), games and so much more. I would not hesitate to stay at Beachbound again. The only thing lacking was a dishwasher and we had plenty of volunteers for dish washing so that wasn't something we missed at all. Just can't say enough about this house! Didn't have a chance to meet Mary Em, the owner, but she was so accommodating and reminding us that if we needed anything to let her know, which we appreciated. Thanks again to Mary Em for a wonderful labor day weekend at Emerald Isle.

Cute, clean and comfortable for all, including the dogs!

  • 5 of 5

We rarely travel with our two dogs but this time we did and felt so welcomed. Our son is active duty and we wanted to go visit him. His one request was to bring the dogs. He misses them so badly. So after searching far and wide for something near the beach that could accommodate, we settled on Beach Bound. We were so comfortable in this cute, clean and bright cottage. The neighborhood is a mix of permanent beach residence and vacation rentals. The neighbors were very nice and told us about the Island. It was quiet and peaceful everyday. The beach cart and chairs were great to have. The beach itself was lovely every day and just a short walk to the end of the block. Mary Em, the owner, was an attentive host. She really cares that you enjoy your stay.

Very clean, accommodating. Owner responsive and helpful. Less than a block from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

From when we pulled into the driveway, this place felt like a home-away-from-home. Spacious driveway, hammock and bird feeder (which also feeds squirrels!) in the front yard, a sweet front deck with rocking chairs and table/chairs and a doggie gate; even chairs for toddlers, though none of those in our bunch at this time. Inside, spacious living area, kitchen stocked with dishes and essentials. Convenient washer and dryer. Back yard boasts a grill, picnic table and outdoor shower! Also a shed with bikes, beach caddies, corn hole and more.

The house is meticulously clean and decorated so prettily! The sleeping accommodations include 2 queen bedrooms and 1 with double bunks. Two bathrooms plus outdoor shower. Pet friendly! Our party of 6 with 2 dogs was completely comfortable. Thank you, Mary Em!
