Blue Bayou is our home away from home, and can be yours too. The spectacular ocean views are best enjoyed from the 3rd floor deck overlooking a lawn for the kids to play on. A panoramic view up and down the beach stretches in front of you.
Beach access is less than a 2 minute walk. Beach access is a new walkway provided by the town with a seating area just before you descend the few steps to the beach. No pass is needed. From sunrise to sunset, the ocean breeze will soothe your stress and help provide a relaxing vacation for the whole family. Depending on the season you might see shrimp boats anchored off the coast, pods of dolphins at play, or pelicans diving for fish.
Take the kids down to the beach after sundown with flashlights to search for the elusive "ghost crabs" or get up early and hunt for shells.
Bike riding on Emerald Isle's safe private streets is a great way to see the island's beautiful homes, before you enjoy fresh seafood at home or in one of the many island restaurants.

My husband and I love to travel with our two daughters. Our youngest has been going to the beach since she was 3 months old. We have many fond memories of family reunions, birthdays and holidays spent at the beach. It is truly our second home.
Our family has been vacationing on Emerald Isle for over 25 years. It was always our dream to buy a home at the beach. We loved the location of our property - just across the street from the beach access walkway. When we purchased we did a complete renovation, with new carpet and tile, all new furnishings, beds and mattresses and outdoor furniture. Our kitchen is stocked to the max (I love to cook) so if you decide to cook you can. Emerald Isle has some of the most beautiful beaches on the East Coast and it is a plus that the town is so environmentally friendly and devoted to preserving the beaches for future generations.
We love sitting on the deck and watching the shrimp boats and pelicans. It isn't a trip to the beach without getting some shrimp at Captain Willis or feeding the turtles in town at Emerald Plaza. Our family also loves going to Beauford, visiting the NC Aquarium and just looking for seashells on the beach. Our house is so big that someone can be watching the big screen TV while someone else is reading or napping. We also love to have family dinners at the big dining room table. I enjoy soaking in the tub at night and listening to the waves.
