Overview

Emerald Isle House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10 in beds, 2 on sofas)

USA Today rated Emerald Isle 1 of 10 best on the Atlantic coast. “North Carolina’s Emerald Isle, located in the Southern Outer Banks, is perhaps the most beautiful stretch of sand in the Carolinas. Calm waters make it a perfect choice for safe swimming, and if you get bored with lazing in the sand, hop on a boat for some dolphin watching.”

Your family and friends will love the great open areas, private bedrooms, and breath taking views our home, “Matt’s Views”, has to offer. You can relax in the upstairs loft sipping your morning coffee and see both the ocean and sound at the same time . So peaceful and tranquil.

There are 4 separate decks from which to enjoy the natural beauty of the island . 3 of them are accessed from a bedroom. Look from the back and side over a canopy of greenery to see the entire Intercoastal Waterway / Sound with small islands and sailboats drifting by, or look out the front to see the sunlight glistening off of the ocean. Sunrises are worth getting up for and sunsets can’t be missed!

The large well equipped kitchen with lots of counter space makes preparing meals or snacks easy for a large group.

A short walk puts you on the flat, sandy beach where you will appreciate the laid back quiet family atmosphere with kids in the surf and dolphins parading up and down the shoreline. If you're lucky, there may be some sea turtle nests to visit (but please don’t disturb).

We can help arrange for linens on or off the bed for $50 per bedroom if you prefer

Your four-legged friends are welcome, too, maximum of two pets, with a minimum of $150, non-refundable, fee.

Thank you for renting out your home to us!

  • 5 of 5

The weather was stormy at first. Cleared by mid week with alternating sun and clouds the rest of the week. Our favorite adventures included beach time first and foremost. Visits to Fort Macon , Shackleford Island where we saw wild horses, Beaufort for the Pirates Invasion, and mini golf. A great restaurant we ate at was Fins on the waterfront in Beaufort. Very nice house! Thanks for sharing it with us!

Thank you for a wonderful holiday on Emerald Island!

  • 5 of 5

The weather was rainy at first and beautiful at the end! Our favorite adventures included walks on the beach, playing in the waves, being brave on our boogie boards, collecting shells, walking Parker Bear, seeing surfers in the surf festival, watching for jumping fish, pelicans, and helicopters. We enjoyed shrimp from the local store and ice cream too but most of all we enjoyed granna's home grown vegetables! Thank you for a wonderful holiday on Emerald Island!

The weather was beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The weather was beautiful! Only stormed the last day. Our favorite adventures included the beach (not even a 5 minute walk!), shopping, seeing dolphins, playing card games, Fort Macon, NC Aquarium, fishing, exploring the island, volleyball at the beach. Great restaurants we discovered include: McCurdy's on the Atlantic Beach causeway, The Village Market, Shark Shack, Chowda Heads. Great place to visit. Nice size house with a great view! Can't wait to come visit again! Loved having the beach so close!

Wonderful beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family beach reunion, gathering at Matt's View and truly enjoyed the location and the wonderful well-maintained spacious house. The beach was close, the walking path was great for bicycling and we had easy access to stores and beach activities and had a great time making memories together. Matt's View felt more like a family home than a rental. It had many little features that made the week special, and the owner responded quickly to resolve any issues that came up. We truly enjoyed our stay and will keep Matt's View in mine for future family vacations.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. We're glad you felt at home in our house. We like it for the same reasons. Very comfortable but with enough room and private spaces to offer something for everyone. I appreciate your patience while we got the internet service back online and figured out that the issue with the dishwasher was a clogged drain pipe! Please do come back next year. We'd like to include you as part of our growing "family"

Wonderful Thanksgiving getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful Thanksgiving beach vacation at Matt's Views! The home is located in a nice, quiet area with many amenities nearby. It is a short walk to a secluded beach. The home is well appointed with anything you need. All for a fantastic price in comparison to what you'll get elsewhere. We hope to return next year.
