Emerald Isle Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Welcome to Beach Retreat West. This 2nd row duplex has it all. Enjoy great ocean and sound views without the oceanfront rental prices. This home is in excellent condition, with over 2000 sq. feet of living space. View the ocean or sound from every single room in the house. Walk out onto the decks, and the ocean views will take your breath away. I promise, once you have been here for a week, or two, you will never want to leave.

You will wake up in the mornings, walk out onto the decks, and gaze out over the beautiful Crystal Coast. Take a deep breath and you will smell Emerald Isle's salty air. This home has four bedroom, with queen beds (all with deck/balcony access), a kids' loft/entertainment area (four twin beds), with TV/VCR/DVD. There is also a large collection of books, movies, games, puzzles, and a stereo system all there for your enjoyment.

Cook all your favorite foods in the fully stocked kitchen, while you look out the window at the ocean. Dine in and entertain in the large, open living/ dining room. Watch t.v on the flat screen TV, while relaxing on the couch.

Step out on the deck the take in the gorgeous views of the beach from both directions. If you watch carefully, you may even catch a glimpse of dolphin swimming by. If the sun gets too hot for you on top, stroll downstairs, where you can enjoy a covered deck that provides lots of shade.

One of my favorite amenities with this home is the beach access. There is a wooden walkway directly across the street that leads you straight to the beach. This is extremely important if you are like me, with five kids and it seems like you bring everything but the kitchen sink with you. We always have so much to carry back and forth, that having the convenience of the beach access is priceless.

Finally, after a fun-filled day on the beach, put the kids to bed and walk back out onto the deck. Sit back and look at the moon as it shines over the ocean. This view will just put an exclamation point on your day. Get a good night sleep and get ready to do it all over again tomorrow.

I hope after reading this, you are excited about vacationing with us. We look forward to making our 'Little Piece of Paradise', paradise for you and your family too. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions, comments or concerns that you might have.

If you are vacationing with multiple families, please see dates and availabilities for Beach Retreat East, listing #353518. Rent both sides and vacation together.

Thank you for visiting our page. Hope to see you at the beach soon, with a drink in your hand and your toes in the sand!

I have been vacationing at Emerald Isle for over 30 years. My family always looked forward to our summer vacations. We knew that every year would be memorable.

Now that I am grown up, married and have a family of my own, the tradition of vacationing in Emerald Isle continues. My children love to come to the beach. They have a great time. We all do!

When we are not at the beach, we reside in the foothills of North Carolina. We have five beautiful children, who keep us very busy with school and sports.

It has always been a dream of ours to have our own place at the beach. This past spring (2011), our dream came true. We are very excited about sharing our home away from home with you!

Robin Johnson purchased this cottage in 2011

Emerald Isle has the most beautiful beaches anywhere. You can enjoy yourself on the beach without all the crowds. Take a short drive to nearby areas, where you can shop, dine, and take in the local scenery. Don't forget to visit the NC Aquarium. This is a fantastic place to bring the family and to learn all about the different regions in NC and the animals that inhabit them.

We love to hang out on the deck, drink our morning coffee, and watch the waves crash onto the beach.

We spend our days on the beach, enjoying the sand, sun, and water. My kids love to take turns burying each other in the sand and surf fishing with Dad!

We love to take long walks down the beach, watching the seagulls flying overhead, while the water washes up over our feet.

At night, the kids go back down to the beach where they like to go 'crab hunting'.

I always told my husband that this was my paradise and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. I hope you feel the same once you experienced Emerald Isle.

Hi Robin,
Returned home Monday and the whole family is saying what great time they had. Our 4 grandchildren and their moms and dads all loved the house. The layout was perfect for us. There were 10 of us and anyone wanting some alone time was able to find their space. The house had everything we could need. The views from every room were meditating. bays or ocean. Close to a DQ and many restaurants. I had a very nice conversation with the owner next door..Sammy. Our youngest slept in one of the twin beds for the first time up with her sister and cousins. The house location was perfect...so close to the beach and the beach was very private. The ocean water was warm! Want to take the house again but for a longer time.
Also, you were great in responding to any questions. It was a pleasure working with you.

The location of this house is fantastic.... You walk out of the driveway and the ocean access is within feet of you but the house rents for second house row prices!!!! Views are great. House layout is perfect. Kitchen is stocked with everything a cook needs and a grill for BBQ's. Communication with the owner was easy and quick. Overall, We had a lovely time, we highly recommend and we will be returning.

Great Family Spot

We had a great time at this beach house. There are A LOT of stairs, but the place was perfect for a large family. The loft madre a great spot for the kids to hang out, while the adults took the main level. The beach was super close and the location was close to plenty of places to eat. It is just a little tricky if you have small kids because of all the stairs. But that would not stop me from renting again AT ALL.

Perfect Vacation

We had a wonderful, relaxing week at this beautiful home in Emerald Isle! All the rooms were very comfortable and we had everything we needed for our family get away. The home was kid friendly, and we loved the easy access to the beach and great views from the deck. We also loved visiting the nearby aquarium and dining at restaurants in the area. Thank you, Robin, for your helpful information of both arrival and check-out procedures!!

Awesome Place!

I had the pleasure of spending the weekend with my family at this beautiful place most recently and fell in love with it immediately. The home was situated nicely on a well kept lot with amazing views of the beach. My family was able to walk to and from the beach without difficulty. This home overlooks the beautiful coast while giving the cozy feel of being home. This home was kid friendly and offered plenty of room for the family to enjoy the comforts of being away from home while on vacation. I highly recommend staying here for multiple reasons and hope that you too have the chance to appreciate this beautiful place as well!
