Overview

Emerald Isle House Rental Photos and Description

Airy, comfortable home on a pristine beach. family gatherings.

Enjoy the most beautiful beach on the East Coast from this serene light-filled oceanfront home. The clean design and wonderful open floor plan make it the perfect place to bring family and friends together with the Atlantic Ocean as your front yard. Due to the unusual orientation of Bogue Bank, you can watch the sun rise AND set from the dramatic deck of this modern contemporary house.

Simple pleasures for all ages abound: long morning walks, body surfing, world class shell collecting, watching porpoises play from the deck, sunbathing and just getting lost in a good book. Food even tastes better at this location! Serve up a casual seafood supper on the breezy screened porch as the sun begins to set.

Three comfortable bedrooms and two baths on the main floor, including a bright and spacious oceanfront master suite. The lower level with direct beach access offers an additional bedroom, bath and a large bunk room to sleep 6, perfect for cousins or single guests. This is accessed from the steps from the great room.

There are only ten steps to the beach from the lower level.

The home is located in a sleepy beachside community. The nearest major attraction is the wonderful North Carolina Aquarium less than five minutes away. Enjoyable restaurants are within a ten-minute drive.

If your group is 'all about the beach,' this is the house for you.

About Monica Heckman

Our family has created many happy memories here on the most beautiful beach in the country. This very special home has been the perfect place to celebrate retirement, new babies, family reunions, Easter, Thanksgiving and even a Spring wedding. We still vacation as an extended family every year. As the family grows, we fill every inch of this home with laughs and good times.

The home was designed for private spaces. You can get away from the activity and enjoy a spot on your own, be it on the hammock, or just in your quiet bedroom.

Monica Heckman purchased this house in 1979

Why Monica Heckman chose Emerald Isle

Quiet, restful, natural location where the ocean is front and center. You will definitely have your place of solitude and privacy on this near-empty stretch of beach. You just don't find this type of beach anymore.

What makes this house unique

Breezy screened porch, ocean front views from living room, dining room, kitchen, master suite and master bath. Wide deck overlooks the beach. Outdoor shower. No fuss simplicity and comfort - suitable for all ages. Well-behaved pets allowed.

So nice, I booked it for next year...

  • 5 of 5
The house was perfect for us. Everything you needed was here. The gathering area, the view, the beach were fantastic. We felt like we were the only ones there except for occasional walkers. Played Corn Hole on the beach with my Kids, their significant others and my sister (who I don't get to see much) and her boyfriend. We also loved the area, we found a fantastic fresh seafood market right on the Causeway, ate out once at the Island Grille (it's a must go). We did a lot of cooking at the house, everyone chipping in. We also brought our Golden Doodle with us, she loved the beach, but she also loved the AC on the hotter humid days. We all just had a great time at this house and look forward to next August!

Wonderful!!!! Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time! The house was perfect for our family. The beach was beautiful. We loved the games and puzzles and other activities that were in the house. The screened porch was great for playing games at night without having to deal with any bugs that might be around! It was quiet and private, but close to good restaurants and activities for the kids. We will definitely come back if we get a chance!!

Owner's Response: We are soooo happy that you enjoyed the old fashioned board games. This generation seems very happy to put down the electronics to play a game with parents and grandparents. I never let them win. They have to work really hard to beat me.
I'm glad you found the home so relaxing, sometimes it's difficult when surrounded by an additional 13 people.
We would love for you to visit us again soon.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from a wonderful week. House was just as shown on the website. Beautiful! We really enjoyed having the beds made up before we got there. So nice to not have to take sheets and make up beds upon arrival. They supply towels too which was really nice. They even have a bin of dog towels. So friendly. The views from the main living area are incredible. Porpoises playing out there every day. We had never seen so many porpoises when we stayed in Nags Head. Kids loved the dormitory room. So great to have a space where all the cousins can be together. Kitchen was well appointed. It was a nice space to cook and gather. We also loved the screened in porch. There was plenty of space to spread out in this house. The beach is beautiful and not crowded at all. We loved how this house is tucked in with trees around. Steps to the beach. We can't wait to come back! Thank you!

Wedding Welcome House!

  • 5 of 5
Our son and his fiancee were married at Pine Knoll Shores late in October. We chose Heckman House as our base of operations for family during the wedding week. I remember specifically arriving 10/22/13 and thinking, "The search for the perfect beach rental is over." Right after I thought this, my husband turned to me and said, "I think this is it for us, don't you?" Monica's description of this wonderful house is accurate, but can't describe the warm and welcoming feel the house has, nor the true beauty of its design. We had an open house for out-of-town wedding guests the day before the wedding. The house was definitely part of the welcome we gave for everyone that we hadn't seen is so long. People relaxed and roamed around and didn't want to leave! We were late for the rehearsal dinner. We'll definitely be back, and so will other family members. No complaints. None. Just happy, satisfying images and memories.

Looking forward to a return stay.

  • 5 of 5
My family and I really enjoyed our week at Heckman House. The description is exact. There was plenty of space for the 7 adults, 3 children, plus an infant. The covered and open deck offered seating for any time of day and weather. The beach was really nice and there were few people. The owners were always friendly and helpful. Everything was clean and in working order except of the outside shower and the need for a backup propane tank for the grill. We are already looking for a time to return for a stay. Thanks for sharing your house!

An Excellent Place for Extended Families

  • 5 of 5
The listing is absolutely accurate. This is in a very private area right on the ocean. The Heckmans have a talented, dedicated maintenance and cleaning crew. We had four of our children's families and we never seemed crowded. The dorm room is perfect for the children. The amenities are terrific, even including a printer (with paper!) that we hooked laptops to a few times! Close to the Aquarium (wonderful!) and the Roosevelt natural area. There is more than enough to do within short drives but the house is stocked and situated so well that there may be no need to leave at all. Our vacation was relaxing and exciting at the same time - beautiful memories.
