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.

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.

Monica Heckman purchased this house in 1979

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.

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.

Wedding Welcome House!

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.

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

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.

Wonderful Owner and Easy-To-Be In Home

We stayed for one week in this wonderfully clean and well-equipped home that has clearly been shown love over the years. Our extended family found the kitchen perfect for cooking meals for large groups. And we could converse during meal preparation because of the great open space. It was great to be able to have that ocean view, too. The beach was private and we discovered all sorts of different kinds of shells and coral that interested old and young alike. A big thanks to the engaging owner, who was very helpful in answering all our questions. A big Steelers yippee to her! We loved this beach experience.

Owner's Response: I am so happy that a family that appeared to love this house as much as my family has, enjoyed their stay. Please come back next year. The house will enjoy hearing your laughter, again

Easy Vacation

I have been coming to this house since I was a small child. Now I have a family of my own and we continue to enjoy the beach-front Heckman House at least once a year. I love how it feels like a home-away-from-home. It is very light and roomy and located on one of the best stretches of beach on the bank. When I am at this house I always feel like I am visiting a warm, familiar place with a bunch of good memories. I love that there are bookshelves stocked with books, a central kitchen where the cook can insert her two-cents into discussions going on in the living room, a rustic screened porch where you can have a relaxing cocktail hour, and an outdoor shower shielded by overgrown maritime vegetation to rinse the sand and salt off after spending the day in the ocean or on the beach. The beach in front of the house feels very private and in the nearly 40 years that I have been coming here I have never seen it "crowded". I know that I have been spoiled by coming to this house and location for so long - no other accommodations measure up when I have to go elsewhere. This house, this location, truly make for a fun and easy vacation. Bring the kids, bring your parents, bring your friends, bring your dog. Cook at home, go out to eat, do whatever you feel like doing - It is all convenient and comfortable at the Heckman House.
