About Marci P Hansen
Our family owns this house, and up until this year, we only allowed friends and family to stay. Having realized we can't make it down to the beach nearly as often as we would like, we thought we'd share our home with a larger audience. We live full-time in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. We are both UNC degree holders, and we now have two young daughters.
Marci P Hansen purchased this House in 2014
Why Marci P Hansen chose Emerald Isle
When we looked for houses to buy, we wanted to find a place that was equal parts quiet and family-oriented, but also close enough to restaurants, the grocery store, and activities for our girls. This house spoke to us (especially the updated bathrooms).
What makes this House unique
The location is quite private, especially for the beach. There are no houses behind, so the backyard is especially private. The house is one-story, with only a few steps to the entrance. Many properties at the beach are elevated and require going up at least one flight of stairs to access the house.

Great family getaway!!
My family of 7 adults came down for a wedding and had a wonderful weekend despite the rain. Luckily we were in a beautifully appointed home that was welcoming and spacious enough for all of us to feel comfortable.
Home away from home
Loved this home! It felt like home when we walked in. Very roomy and beautifully decorated. Spacious and loved the room we had for people to sit inside and out. Great neighborhood and short distance to beach access. We were only there for the long weekend but had a great time! Marci the owner was very friendly and Jim the property manager was also. Can’t wait to come back soon! We rent from home away a lot. This was our favorite so far!
Week End Getaway
Wonderful beach retreat, totally enjoyed the experience!
Great for families!
The house was very convenient to restaurants, grocery stores and walkable to the beach. Plenty of space for two families and very family friendly amenities. Both property owner and manager were extremely prompt in returning any questions I had. Great place!
LOVED IT ! The house is in a perfect area, close to beach and shopping. Will definitely book again.
We went to NC to surprise our Marine and booked this house so we can all stay together. The house clean and roomy with lots of extra ( grill. ocean toys, linens, cooking supplies)
Had a fabulous time and intend to book again in the future.
It’s a great house nicely decorated and equipped. The hot water heater Is set so no one could burn them selves or get a very hot shower. The property managers children would appear and disappear on the outskirts of the property,. He has 10. Children are children but the adults in my group were uncomfortable having adult time around the fire pit and it became a topic of discussion. Somewhat unnerving to always find someone staring at you when you look through the trees. We had only five people and found the two toilets were not adequate, I cannot imagine nine people trying to eat in the kitchen or sitting in the living room. If more than four adults are staying it would not be so great
Oh no! I am so sorry to hear this about the water heater- it was replaced last year, so it might just be a setting we need to have our property manager adjust. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. The kitchen table does expand to seat over 10 people (currently set up for 6, and we have additional seats and a card table in the master bedroom closet), but I will also add this to the beach house document so future renters are aware they can expand the table to accommodate their party size. Again, thank you for bringing it to my attention. We strive to give our guests the very best experience, and I am sad to hear that you did not feel you received that. We welcome the feedback and appreciate you staying with us.
One of the best things about this location is its proximity to everything. Within steps of the front door, there is a miniature golfing course for the family to enjoy. A quick walk to the grocery store is no problem. The waterslide park is a quick bike ride away. It's raining out? A thirty-minute drive to the Aquarium is a great excursion, or just hop across the street to the movie theater. So convenient to everything.
