About Suzanne & Joe

We have been visiting Emerald Isle for 20+ years and have been fortunate to own this condo 10 yrs. Emerald Isle is one of the best kept secrets for beach fun in NC. Sound of the Sea is a gated community so the beach area is exclusive to owners and guests.

Suzanne & Joe purchased this condo in 2005

Why Suzanne & Joe chose Coastal North Carolina

Emerald Isle affords us easy access to a great beach. It has all the amenities we need, most within walking distance. However, even though you can walk to a number of shops/stores etc. the complex is set back enough on plenty of acreage so it is extremely quite and relaxing. Grounds are very well maintained.

What makes this condo unique

Walking to the pier and/or surf-fishing. A variety of shops/restaurants in Emerald Isle, Swansboro and Atlantic Beach. The NC Aquarium is close and water slides, mini-golf and go-carts are also close by and always fun. Or just lounging on the beach with a good book.

Great Set Up and Location

  • 5 of 5

This condo works really well for small groups looking for a beach front location. Sound of the Sea is a nice development; quiet, gated, well kept and directly on the beach. I stayed here with one child and we felt very safe and comfortable. Everything we needed was within a mile including grocery store, restaurants, go carts, putt putt golf, movie theater, bike rental, etc, etc. It really is an easy place to vacation. Both pools and the beach were nice. Owners were easy to work with and condo was clean and covered all our needs. We enjoyed our visit and would stay here again.

We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

Very cozy condo. Very clean (and I am very picky about bathrooms when we go on vacation! This one met expectations 10).Well stocked with needed supplies. We cooked every meal in and had all the equipment we needed. Owner is friendly and easy to work with.We booked last minute but she was very helpful in working everything out. We love Sound of the Sea and Emerald Isle. We do hope to visit this unit again soon. Thanks!!

Great location and nice sunny condo.

  • 4 of 5

To start, Suzanne the owner couldn't have been easier to work with. My husband and I took our first post-baby trip here, with our 8 month old son. The condo worked very well for the baby. The bedroom has large accordion-style doors and, when opened, it makes the place feel like a large, sunny studio. It is a very easy walk to the beach and the large pool was awesome. The price was reasonable (we went off-season, over Labor Day weekend). I loved how close it was to the grocery store and my husband and I had a great meal at Rucker Johns. The two decks are awesome and quite private. You can see and hear the ocean, although you're not right on it. There's a paved path nearby that is great for running and I was happy to get my work-outs in.

As I've heard others say, Camp Lejeune is nearby and military aircraft do fly overhead quite often. I couldn't believe how loud they were. For us, it was like a free airshow, and we loved it!

There were a few negatives that I was surprised people didn't mention in their reviews but I wouldn't 'not' go here based on the few negatives. The only provided trash bags were small plastic shopping bags and there was only one or two uses of hand soap left, so we had to purchase those. The fridge was empty and we were told there'd be condiments, but we didn't need them anyhow. We did have to buy salt, as the only salt provided was 'Lite'. The doors to the bedroom don't shut so there is an approximate 5" gap which lets in a lot of light if you're trying to sleep...we tied a string around the outside to keep them closed...but when I needed to get out, I had to ask to be released. Also, the second pool was closed right after Labor Day, the second day of our trip. It didn't matter, though, as the larger pool stayed open and was uncrowded. The toilet tanks took at least 5 minutes to fill up, so no chain-flushing allowed. The kitchen is dated and the stove had some numbers rubbed off so cooking was a little bit of a guessing game (I guessed right).

Overall, this place is a great deal, in a great location and I would certainly recommend it.

Lovely Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time staying at this condo. It was very clean and well-kept, and very close to the beach. Bright, cheerful environment. The owner was very responsive to our needs as well. Next time we return to Emerald Isle, we'll try to stay here!
