About Carol Johnson

We live in the suburbs of Raleigh, NC. We have been married since 1995 and are currently raising our six children. As you can imagine, we are extremely busy!

Carol Johnson purchased this condo in 2016

Why Carol Johnson chose Emerald Isle

Emerald Isle is a quaint coastal town with modern conveniences. We grew up in Kinston, which is an hour west of Emerald Isle. As such, we frequented this beautiful area as often as possible, normally hanging around the crowded Bogue Inlet Pier beach. When we found the new small public access beach, we began taking our kids there instead. We have been looking for a vacation home in Emerald Isle for many years. We were thrilled to find this condo, located beside our favorite beach spot and close to one of our favorite little shops on the Island - Flip Flops. We can walk there for ice cream and lunch within 5 minutes time!

What makes this condo unique

The views from this 3rd floor unit are absolutely stunning! The front of the condo is mostly glass and thus, you can see the ocean from the dining area, sitting area, and kitchen, as well as limited views from the master bedroom.

We fell in love with this unit because of its potential. We knew it could go from "good" to "fabulous" with fresh paint, updated bathrooms and kitchen, new linens and a few splashes of coastal decor. We love this condo and hope you will enjoy it also!

The Salt Box

  • 5 of 5

Lovely condominium.......this place is so clean! It looks like a brand new condo from the paint to the carpet to the appliances and the countertops. Carol had it stocked such that we did not have to rush to the store the minute we got there. Bottled water in the refrigerator, tissue, paper towels, etc were awaiting us. The view from the balcony is beautiful with a clear view of the ocean. Though we did not cook at all, the kitchen is fully equipped! The televisions and remotes are nicely marked so that there is no confusion as to how to use them or as to which remote goes with which device. The location is close to restaurants and shopping. The beach is wide off of the beach access ramp with room to sit, walk, etc. Sidewalks along the road also allow for safe walking and/or bicycling.

Would definitely want to stay here again!

Thank you Carol!

Beautiful and wonderfully well kept. Perfect place to get away and relax!

  • 5 of 5

Super clean and comfortable. View is outstanding! Really was the perfect place for a nice week away. Close to town but far enough away to feel secluded. Five min walk from the beach. We truly enjoyed our time here. This condo was very comfortable and accommodating. Highly recommend!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the perfect time in Emerald Isle with this condo as the anchor. Despite a wild week of weather forecasts, we lucked out and were able to enjoy everything. The condo is clean, well done, organized, amazing views, and seamless. Big thanks to carol and the ocean reef! Don't be surprised if we come back!!!

Relaxing and Beautiful stay in Emerald Isle

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were looking for a quiet vacation spot, and The Salt Box in Emerald Isle, NC was just the place. Diane is excellent and responsive with all communications. The condo was exactly as pictured including a lot of extras that we weren't expecting. I would definitely recommend The Salt Box for any family going to Emerald Isle.

All the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at The Salt Box / Ocean Reef! Carol has the condo very well decorated and the view of the ocean and the sound are beautiful. She also had great personal touches that made us feel at home (especially for my daughter!). The amount of provisions are tremendous (toilet paper, paper towels, linens, towels, beach chairs etc.), definitely helpful to not have to pack all those items.

Would recommend the following places: The Trading Post, Sweet Spot, Plaza Mexico restaurant bar & grill, Fort Macon and Crabs Claw (in Atlantic Beach). Also if you are buying fish to cook - Willis' is fantastic! they have 2 locations (EI & AB).

Looking forward to our next trip! Thank you Carol for helping make our vacation so perfect!
