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 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!

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.
My family and I stayed in this property in July of 2014. It was perfect!! The owner was a pleasure to work with and very attentive when we had questions while there (even a non-emergency like ours, which was, "I can't seem to get the Internet password to work?!" The house was clean, well-equipped, and so incredibly close to the beach access it should be considered beach front!
We enjoyed all the decks in the evenings with music and relaxing, and cannot wait to do it all over again, this coming summer!
My family has been vacationing at Emerald Isle now for 31 years and have yet to find a house that was this perfect of a match for us. We hope to have many more summer vacations there!
This house is in an amazing location and allowed my group to go in many different directions. The home is welcoming and comfortable with space for our group of 12 to sit comfortable to eat and have meetings. The owner is easy to work with and is so friendly. I was able to reach her whenever I had a question. We had ample space for everything we needed to do for work and then could cross the street to relax at the beach! All of my student staff begged to stay longer. We cannot wait for next year! I would recommend this location for larger families, student group retreats, or if you are just looking for a convenient getaway. Thanks for a great time!!
I was at Beach Retreat West for 3 days alone and it was just perfect. I woke up every morning to a view of the ocean and spent many hours relaxing on both decks facing the ocean. Since the ocean is just across the street, I was able to set up at the beach and return to the house at anytime without loading all of my things back up. Several friends joined me on the 4th day and there was plenty of room for everyone. We did not want to leave at the end of the week! We had such a good time and enjoyed Beach Retreat West so much that we are planning to make this an annual trip! Thank you for sharing your home with us!
Didn't want to leave. Everything PERFECT. Comfortable, roomy, well-stocked. Fabulous. I'll pick Emerald Isle and THIS HOUSE over Florida any day!
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.
