Our goal is to provide a perfect stay. Our off season has been busy again this year sprucing up and upgrading amenities as needed throughout the house. No comfort ignored during improvement.

You are steps from the beach allowing you to watch the birds soar, and dolphins jump while the kids swim and build sand castles. Eat breakfast on the deck while watching the sunrise or enjoy your favorite cocktail and catch the most spectacular sunsets anyone could want. Completely remodeled inside and out this 4 bedroom 2 bath half duplex provides you the perfect oceanfront getaway. An open kitchen, dining and living area compliment the master bedroom with a queen bed and full bath on first floor. The 3 bedrooms with queen beds and full bath upstairs includes 2 ocean front rooms with private deck. 5 flat screen TVs with cable and streaming options allow the family to chill out on those rainy day breaks or curl up for a night in watching a family favorite. The living room offers a queen sleeper sofa to round out the accommodations for 10. Stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops with custom back splash and wood flooring compliment the beautiful beach views you will find daily. The ocean front decks offer a table and 4 chairs as well as ample seating to lounge in the sun. We offer an under house 12 x 14 patio for cooking and entertaining which includes a 22.5 inch Kettle Charcoal Grill, picnic table and patio chairs.

Enjoy this beautiful, half duplex located on North Carolina's Crystal Coast along the laid-back Southern Outer Banks. Emerald Isle is located on Bogue Banks, a beautiful barrier island separated from the mainland by a short bridge ride over the two-mile-wide unspoiled Bogue Sound.

Emerald Isle features many attractions such as a water slide, miniature golf, jet ski and water sports equipment rentals, shopping and other fun things to do. Boating, fishing, sea kayaking, golf and great restaurants are just minutes away. The historic and charming towns of Swansboro, Morehead City and Beaufort with their many restaurants and amenities are all just a short ride away. In Beaufort you can take a short ferry ride to Shackleford Banks, an unoccupied and unspoiled barrier island populated by 130 wild ponies, for a fantastic hiking tour or picnic lunch.

Bedding may differ from pictures shown to allow for cleaning.

Linens and towels for 10 and weekend cleaning is included in your booking.

About Neill McLeod

We are natives of Raleigh NC and purchased this house in 2015. We have remodeled it completely inside and out to ensure no detail needed attention. We are continuously looking for ways to improve the beach experience making sure every decision made compliments the last. Our goal is to make this house feel like a home. Hopefully you will find this to be the case and provide feedback if you do not. Thanks for considering our beach home as your vacation destination.

Neill McLeod purchased this townhome in 2015

Why Neill McLeod chose Emerald Isle

Simple, ocean front with all the amenities you would expect. We have been traveling to the NC coast all our lives. Prior to purchasing this property we had vacationed in Emerald Isle for 4 years. Once we decided to buy a beach home I convinced my wife to take a long weekend trip over Thanksgiving and travel the entire coast line between Atlantic Beach and Sunset Beach. The goal of the 3 day long adventure was to try and "rule out" Emerald Isle as a purchase destination. However, (just like my wife told me it would) the trip ruled out ALL OTHER BEACHES. There is nothing that can compare to the emerald green waters and the east west layout of the island. Where else can you see the sun rise and set right from your deck or balcony?

What makes this townhome unique

The covered ocean front deck from the 1st floor living area and ocean front decks off two of the upstairs bedrooms are joined by stairs allowing for privacy and convenience. The patio under the house provides a private setting to relax and to grill your daily meals.

Couldn't be better!

  • 5 of 5

The unit appeared to have been newly remodeled. It was beautifully done. Everything was new from the furniture ,beds, flooring to the appliances, dishes and silverware! The kitchen was wonderfully stocked with anything we needed. There were more than enough outdoor chairs for our extended family. I hope to return again next year! I

Beach front ocean views

Ocean views adorn this beach front rental. Good fishing and private entrance to and from the beach. Centrally located with an updated interior and warm beachy feel.

Pleasant stay at this cozy beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this beach house. Everything was perfect. We appreciated the size of the kitchen and had ample amounts of pots, pans, etc. The griddle was a nice surprise and helped with breakfast time. The table was great for seating our two families that went this week. Living room was cozy and the whole house was decorated beautifully. The beach is so close and convenient to the house. We were comfortable leaving our chairs and toys on the beach as we went in for lunch, etc.

The only thing I would upgrade would be the table and chair set on the porch. They were rusty and Unfortunately it got rust on some of our towels and clothes that I can hopefully get out. Everything else was wonderful. Lots of HOT water!!! No one had a cold shower and we all showered one after the other every day. There were 10 of us, 4 adults and 6 children for reference. We did bring one twin blow up mattress and it worked great! The bedrooms were good size. We would recommend highly!

Best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

Great location for a beach week with two young grandsons. Everything was very clean and kitchen well equipped. Bedrooms were quite spacious and decks provided lots of outside space. Our son suggested booking for next year!

Love Emerald Isle!!

  • 4 of 5

The house was very cozy for our family!! Loved how close the place was to the beach. Great grilling area under the house. Had a few things that needed to be fixed and the owner was very quick in responding to my emails. He assured me they would all be fixed in a timely manner. Would recommend this house for others.

Sea you next time!

  • 5 of 5

This was a super clean property that was well equipped. One of the things we particularly liked was the quality of the linens that were provided. The unit is as oceanfront as you can get. It was super easy for my grandchildren to go back and forth to the house to get snacks, toys and use the bathroom. I would definitely recommend it to friends and relatives.
