Experience the natural luxury of vacationing at this remodeled and beautifully decorated oceanfront half duplex, where the seaside covered porch furnished with rocking chairs becomes your living room and the ocean’s edge your prime time entertainment.

Roll out of bed - onto the beach, and welcome breathtaking sunrises of NC's Crystal Coast while sipping your morning cup of coffee. Watch the fish jump, the birds and the dolphins at play.

After a fun day at the beach, you can enjoy showering 'alfresco' in the enclosed outdoor shower (hot/cold water) with dressing area.

In the evenings, as you sit on your beach side porch enjoying a cocktail or a family dinner. Watch the most spectacular sunsets, bringing another Day in Paradise to a close.

Sandy beaches, gentle ocean waves and a quiet family atmosphere that Emerald Isle NC is known for - the perfect coastal getaway you have been waiting for all year - No need to compromise.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Hi Martha, We've been back in Pennsylvania for about a week and a half now, and we still miss your home! Especially the view from the living room and porch! All of us (dog included!), thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your home and Emerald Isle in general. Your home was so comfortable and beautifully decorated. The weather was perfect. We saw dolphins just about every day. We loved Rucker Johns - ate there twice actually. We went to Beaufort (your suggestion also) and loved it there (lots of dog friendly restaurants, too!). Everyone on the island was so friendly. And oh, that view!



I wanted to thank you for sharing your home with us and let you know what a wonderful time we all had!



Take care,

Lori

My name is Mark Storie. I reside in New Bern, NC, and have been a fan of North Carolina's Crystal Coast since I was 10.

The Owner purchased this house in 2013

In my youth, my Father was the Minister of St Andrews Episcopal Church in Morehead City. I always loved this area, and when I discovered this house, I immediately fell in love. This comfortable cottage wraps around you... This home, and this place, are very special.

Only that IT'S on the ocean! You can literally throw a rock to the edge of the surf at high tide from the new ocean view deck. The south facing view provides sun drenched days, and star filled nights. The home was recently upgraded with a new, larger ocean view deck, a new integrated sound system both indoors and out. Plus, new flat screens TV's in every bed room, new hard wood floors, and accent rugs. OK. Does any of this really qualify as unique? :) Why don't you spend a week here, and let me know if what you discover is 'unique'?

Best beach house I've stayed at in my entire life!

Best beach house I've stayed at in my entire life!
  • 5 of 5
This is the best beach house I've stayed at in my entire life! The space is perfectly planned out to efficiently fit three bedrooms and two baths, plus plenty of living space and kitchen counter top space for slicing, dicing and cooking. Last but not least, just a few short steps to the ocean.

Most well equipped home, especially the kitchen, that I've ever seen. Nicer kitchen knives than I have at home! Great supplies already provided to help get you started before you can make it to the grocery store. Tons of items already there for the beach including an umbrella and toys. Very modern appliances. Everything is extremely new and clean throughout the home.

We also loved the outdoor shower under the house. Never even used the indoor showers all week!

Can't wait to come back next year, this time for two weeks!

BEAUTIFUL VIEWS!!

  • 5 of 5
This wasn't our first beach house rental at Emerald Isle, but it was by far the best. The view was spectacular! The house and surround sound was excellent. We saw multiple dolphins, and my husband loves to surf fish - and there was plenty to catch! VERY private considering it was a duplex. The enlarged deck was perfect. Mark did everything to make sure our stay was comfortable. We stayed two weeks, and didn't even leave the beach house the second week! Our puppy loved it too!!

A small dose of Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Hi Martha: Coming back to your beachfront home was like coming home for us to the beauty and comfort that surrounds us while we are here. Of course the Tropical storm this week has kind of dampened our spirits a bit, but none the less we have enjoyed being here. Sitting out on the deck in the morning with our coffee, watching the Pelicans soar by and the dolphins out there jumping like it's the best day is total enjoyment. Hope to come back in 2014, but will be in touch with some dates. Hope all is well with you and your family.

Owner's Response: Hi Joan. So happy to hear about your stay. I apologize for the weather. By the way, I recently purchased this home from Martha, and am planning some upgrades and additions for 2014!! I hope you will come back and continue to enjoy this little treasure on the Beach. Thank you.

Nice location - beautiful beach!

  • 5 of 5
Great house for a beach vacation. House was nice. Perfect for our family of four adults. We went at a great time of the year before the busy summer season started, there was plenty of things to do and we kept busy everyday. The town of Beaufort, Fort Macon, aquarium, etc, plus of course the beach! The beach was exquisite! We brought our dog who had a great time and was tuckered out every night.
A note to the property manager: Please be sure to fix the back storm door as it was bent and kept getting stuck due to the wind slamming it closed. Also, make sure the correct dishwasher detergent is supplied to use in the dishwasher to keep dishes from getting covered in lime scale which is extremely difficult to remove.
Thanks for renting to us.

Owner's Response: Hi Laura..thank you so much for feedback. Glad that you and your family were able to enjoy a great vacation at the beach. Appreciate you letting us know about the back door. I'm assuming that you also advised our maintenance team and they were able to fix this for you. I will followup with them tomorrow to ensure that this has been fixed for the next renter. Thanks again and we look forward to welcoming you to our home next year. Take care, Martha & Rob

Relaxing Vacation, Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5
This was a beautiful home away from home! Quiet, comfortable, clean and made for an amazing getaway. Just as described in the listing description and the perfect size for 4 adults and 2 kids. Also ended up have great neighbors!! Kitchen has just about everything I needed for a week's worth of cooking, Beach access was perfect and was a great way to spend the day watching the ocean...either sitting on the beach, reading from the deck or relaxing in the living room early in the morning. Thank you Martha for being a great host and allowing us to stay in your fantastic home. Can't wait to come back next year!!

wonderful getaway with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful cozy home! Perfect quiet oceanfront location with fantastic views. Great to find a dog friendly place that is also pristine and spotless. We like to sneak away to write Christmas cards and the large picture window where we could write and also observe dolphins, crashing waves, and gliding pelicans was perfect. Everything we could possibly need was right there. Beautifully appointed and equipped. Loved the big screen TV with HBO and the perfect lighting for reading in many locations. Thank you so much!!
