This 2nd row duplex has it all! Great ocean views without the oceanfront rental prices (and it's CLEAN)! Over 2,000 sq feet, on a quiet, non-busy street with a view of the ocean or sound from every single window in the house! Make this your 2nd home for a week (or two) and you'll never want to leave.
We want your family & friends to have a great experience and forget all of their worries while making great memories that will last a lifetime. Sound too good to be true or too much like a Hallmark card? Well we aren't kidding!
Wake up every morning and walk directly out of your bedroom onto the deck and breathe in Emerald Isle's salty air. House has 4 bedrooms with Queen beds (all with deck/balcony access) & a kids' loft/entertainment area on the 4th level with 4 twin beds complete with books, games, puzzles, a TV, DVD/VCR player & stereo system. In the den you can even watch tv, look to your left and see the ocean... of course, that's just from the inside, wait until you step out onto the decks!
Beach access is literally steps away across the street with a wooden walkway leading directly to the surf. Families with young kids will enjoy this convenience by not having to walk far with all your beach supplies and stuff! You also have the convenience of our exhilarating outdoor shower with hot/cold water to wash off the beach sand and lotion.
Cook all of your favorite 'beach foods' in our fully equipped kitchen while looking at the emerald blue ocean. Then dine and entertain inside with family & friends while enjoying the great ocean views from the large eating area or have your meals outside on the deck's large teak dining table with umbrella where the view and sounds of the ocean enhance the experience.
Watch schools of dolphins in the morning swim by & flocks of pelicans dive in for a snack in the afternoon. If you need some shade, head down to the lower level deck & relax on one of our lounge chairs or porch swing. Of course, the decks have great views, but nothing can beat hanging out on the beach & swimming in the ocean. After a long day, enjoy our outdoor shower (w/ hot & cold water) and indulge in some great local seafood at one of many restaurants within minutes of the house. After the kids have gone to sleep, sneak back out on the deck and look at the moonlight shine over the water with a glass of your favorite beverage. Get the best sleep of your life (as long as you put on plenty of sunscreen) and wake up ready to do it all over again!

Our family has enjoyed the Crystal Coast for the past 30 years, always renting out the same cottage. Brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins, moms, dads & grandparents have come together once a year to laugh, eat, swim, ride go-karts, play putt-putt, lay out, read books, & just enjoy each other's company. Kids have grown up & now even have kids on the way. In our wildest dreams we never imagined we would have our own beach house in Emerald Isle and be able to provide quality beach experiences & memories to other families. It is truly a blessing! So please make sure you sign our guest book & tell us all about your vacation before you leave!
The Owner purchased this cottage in 2011
Emerald Isle has the most gorgeous beaches on the east coast with a huge bonus: they aren't crowded! Emerald Isle retains its barrier island character with friendly locals and great seafood. Short distance to nearby towns for great shopping, eating and exploring life on the water front. You'll never want to leave!
We love relaxing on the decks, sipping a favorite beverage & enjoying the gorgeous ocean views. You can hear the waves crashing & the ocean is only steps across the street. It's so peaceful walking on the beach ,watching the birds, and taking pictures of the occasional school of dolphins swimming by. The beach is also not crowded at all.
This home away from home was perfect for our family reunion. It was spacious with plenty of room for each family member to have their own space when needed, and lots of together spaces too. We spent most of our time in the beautiful beach, but when we were home we were so comfy. The third level deck was probably our favorite together spot! Kids loved the freedom to ride bikes and have their own loft. Our hardest decision for next year will be which week at Beach Retreat should we reserve now? Fantastic house!!!!
This cottage was Great, spacious, 4 bedrooms, laundry, grill, Inverted floor plan so living space is on the 3rd floor for great view. Great decks on 2nd, 3rd level with shade in the evening sun during the day on the 3rd level. Lots of room and a loft for the kids. Within a 100 yards of the beach with easy access. Flawless transaction
Perfect house. Perfect location. It's second row, but you merely cross the street (which is about as wide as an average driveway), and the beach access is right there! Very nice ocean views. Just like in the description, we really did see dolphins from the deck! The house was immaculate. We cooked a lot, because the kitchen was stocked with everything that we needed. I was worried about renting a duplex, because of noise from the other unit, but the walls must be very well insulated, as it was not an issue. The owner was a pleasure to work with, and I will definitely rent this place again.
We stayed with 6 adults and 2 children with plenty of room to spare. The kid's loft was awesome for the 2 kids. The house was extremely clean--it looks brand new on the inside. The pictures don't do it justice. It is beautiful. The kitchen is more spacious than it looks in the pictures and so is the upstairs bathroom. The top deck views are as good as ocean front. It's just a few steps across a very quiet street to the public beach access. The outside shower was perfect for getting the kids off the beach and back in the house without sandy feet and wet clothes. We would absolutely stay there again. Linens and towels were provided which was SO much easier than packing our own. I can't say enough good things about this house. No negatives at all. It was perfect!
Oh my!!!! As soon as we walked in we felt at home. My family rented this home ( 4 kids & 2 adults ) with my sisters family ( 3 kids & 2 adults ) and there was plenty of space. It fit us perfectly. The home was extremely clean and comfortable. Saw the pics online but I thought it was even better than the pictures showed.
I was elated to see the proximity to the ocean. It was literally as close as walking across the street. The beach was clean and beautiful and the kids loved the waves. I was a bit skeptical renting a home, I thought it would be just like being at home cooking and cleaning but that was one of my most relaxing vacations ever. I would stay again in a heartbeat. Also just would like to say that working with the owner, Sammy, was a very pleasant experience. My niece asked the first day that we were there if we could do this again next year ..... That's an easy "yes ".
We had never been to Emerald Isle before. We were pleasantly surprised. We shall return. This house was everything the owner said it would be. Clean and well kept. Good location. We liked the deck and the deck furniture.The beaches were nice and wide, uncrowded, with plenty of room for swimmers and fishermen.We rented a pontoon boat and fished in the intercoastal waterway. Next time we might drive to Cape Lookout to see the only lighthouse that we have not seen in NC.Flippers had a good breakfast. The tackle shop and the surf shops were great too.We bought fresh shrimp and scallops and fixed at the house one night.We had a good time!
