A large, new grill is available for use under the house. The grill uses those small propane canisters available at all hardware, and big box stores for about $4. Please bring your own canisters.
There is paved parking under the house for up to eight cars. The space under the house is a definite favorite of the kids who enjoy skateboarding, riding scooters, rip-sticks, and bikes in the shade of the house. It's a super fun place.

About Paula Reynolds
We are a family in love with the beach. We spend part of the year here in Emerald Isle, and the rest of the year on the island of Eleuthera, The Bahamas. We are happy to share our love of the ocean with our renters. We personally maintain our house and strive to make the house as comfortable as possible. It's extremely important to us that our renters have a positive rental experience at Shorebreak. Our goal is for our renters to feel as if this is their home away from home and they can depend on our house for their memories for many years to come.
Paula Reynolds purchased this House in 2016
Why Paula Reynolds chose Emerald Isle
We are not managed by a large corporate rental agency, thereby keeping our rates lower and our property more intimately maintained. We have a local caretaker available for any emergencies, housekeeping, and linen needs. We offer full amenities, including surfboards and high-speed internet. Our house is clean, well-maintained, clutter free and fresh.
What makes this House unique
We are one of, if not THE closest house to the water. At high tide, the bottom step of the private dune walkway is less than 30' from the water. The sound of the surf fills the house night and day, and the blue/green of the water brightens every room in the house. You can't get any closer to the ocean unless you're in a boat.

Fantastic vacation place!
Our family stayed at the Shorebreak with our friends. Both families loved the proximity to the beach and amenities. Both sides were clean and spacious. The right side was recently remodeled and offered updated flooring and appliances. The view is spectacular and the hostess provided water sports equipment, beach chairs, games, and books for guests to enjoy. The full size washer and dryer were a godsend and really helped us maximize our packing. Overall, a great experience that we would recommend to anyone looking for an authentic NC beach vacation.
Great beach week at a great beachfront property
Our family of 8 (counting inlaws) had a great time at Emerald Isle last week. The cottage was as advertised. It was really nice having beach chairs, surf boards, and boogie boards. Because it is a duplex rented as one, having 2 washers and dryers, and two kitchens was very nice as well. At night the in laws were able to retreat to their side to avoid the commotion of kids. We look forward to returning to the same cottage next year. Highly recommended.
Well Maintained Beautiful Beach Property
We truly enjoyed staying at Shorebreak in Emerald Isle. We rented both sides of the property for my husband, myself, daughter, son, daughter-in-law, and two grandchildren and had plenty of room. The owners go out of there way to provide extras such as nice beach chairs, boogie boards, surf boards, paddle boards, games, a gas grill, a basketball goal, and nice deck furniture. Everything was very clean and well-maintained. We loved being beachfront on this uncrowded beach. The owner was very easy to work with and very accommodating. They even contacted us when the housekeeper found my son's wedding band while cleaning and shipped it to us. We had a wonderful week and would love to stay there again sometime.
A little piece of Heaven!
We absolutely loved our visit to Emerald Isle and our stay at this property. It was by far, the best place on the beach to watch fireworks on the 4th ofJuly. The large deck is great and an added bonus that it is so close to the water. We had some babies on our trip so it was nice to have two sides , where we could put the babies down for naps or bed and cook, visit on the other side. It was also nice bc the AC went out on one side (which can always be a possibility with the beating those beach homes take from the salt and weather) but we had the other side to stay cool in! Oh and as for the hot side... it was cool again and fixed in under a day! We had a wonderful time!
The house was perfect for us! We loved having the two separate spaces for our teenagers
I would rent this house again! Great location.
Great house, perfect location!
We really enjoyed staying at Shorebreak. We walked out to the beach every day after waking up looking at the ocean. The house has adjoining rooms which was really cool to be able to have 2 full houses in 1. Would definitely stay here again. Lot's of boogie boards and surfboards and sand toys were already there for us. I love drinking my morning coffee on the deck looking at the ocean. We saw dolphins every day. Can't wait to book this again next year. Thanks!
