Emerald Isle Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)

Welcome to No Wake Zone East – an oceanfront paradise. Whether you have a large family group or need to get away alone, this beach house fits the bill. *

No Wake Zone is an up-to-date, fully equipped beach home for all family groups. Beach chairs, great views, comfortable beds for all ages, great location, covered decks, beautifully decorated, Jacuzzi, gated top deck, fireplace (in season) and more. Stay in bed a little longer and sip your coffee while watching the dolphins head east up the island coast. Or enjoy your coffee and breakfast on the pub table on the top deck as you watch the sea gulls and pelicans fly over. Need a covered deck, try the one outside the master bed room with two rockers.

Because of the location of NO WAKE ZONE EAST, young children can walk to the ice cream parlor, mini-golf, the theater and great beach shops. Bring the bikes and discover the entire island. Pack a picnic lunch, an umbrella, and head to the beach right in front of your house. Can you feel the ocean breeze, smell the salt air and feel the sand in between your toes? Take a walk on the near-by pier and see the ocean from a different perspective or fish from the pier.

Happy Hour! Have your favorite wine or cocktail with special 'pu-pu’s' on the deck watching the sun go down. Pop some corn for the kids and put them in the 'kiddie' room with their special DVD. Feed the sea gulls right out of your hand from the deck with left-over bread

I don’t like waiting a line at the restaurants! Cooking fresh seafood for the crew is a snap. The kitchen has been especially equipped to meet all your needs for a large group. From the ice cream scoop and the pizza cutter to the slow cooker and glass top range. Large pots and pans for the crowd. Complimentary spices have been provided so you don't break your food budget.

Don't let a rainy day dampen your mood. The large flat panel TV offers great viewing for movies or special shows. Head to the Aquarium. Or there is a large library of books to read and games available to play and puzzles to put together. Or get wild and take a walk on the beach during a storm when it is not lightning.

NO WAKE ZONE EAST has been personally decorated with whimsical themes for you to enjoy. You will feel the warmth and care put into the home as it welcomes you to enjoy the beautiful gift of nature. Crack you window just an inch when you go to bed and let the sound of the ocean's waves put you sleep and gently wake you in the morning.

WELCOME YOUR MARINE home from an overseas tour without having to stay in several sterile hotel rooms. Or give them a wonderful send off when they are leaving. Create great memories for those times. (Ask me about a military discount)

Make it a wonderful get-away,


* Both sides are no longer available to rent to families or groups during the same week.

About Jackie Scialabba

'I've been blessed to have a home on the ocean for years and want to share that with others so they can enjoy it as well.'

Jackie Scialabba purchased this townhome in 1994

Why Jackie Scialabba chose Coastal North Carolina

If you have ever been to Emerald Isle, NC, you will know exactly why anyone would want to have a home here either permanently or as a second home. The family atmosphere, beautiful ocean sunrises, sunsets, soft breezes and salt air take all the stress away.

What makes this townhome unique

If waking up and going to sleep by the ocean waves are not enough for you, try the NC Aquarium in Pine Knoll Shores a few miles away. It is as exciting for adults as for children and is interactive with various programs for all ages. Or discover nearby Beaufort, NC - filled with historical sites and great events throughout the year. For the history buffs, try an afternoon at Fort Macon at the other end of the island. My favorite - a shell seeking trip to the small islands with wonderful shells to take home for special reminders of the beach. Kayaking, parasailing, canoeing - the list goes on. Close to numerous activities, mini-golf, water slide, go-carts, shopping, ice cream shops, theater, grocery and restaurants both super casual and casual. Chose from 2 different decks right outside your bedroom to enjoy watching the ocean. waves and people having fun.

Great Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We love the Emerald Isle beaches and have a home on the Intercostal Waterway. We wanted to try oceanfront this year and had an amazing time at the NWZE! The location could not have been better for us and the house was clean with all the comforts of home! We had to bring very few things with us because so many things were already provided including cribs, highchairs and various other items that would have completely fill our vehicles had we needed to bring them along. The oceanfront view was amazing and the house very spacious. Exactly what we needed for our expanding family. The owner provided clear instructions on what to do during our stay as well as a quick response time if we had any questions along the way. Thank you NWZE (Jackie) for helping us to make some wonderful memories! If time allows next we we would love to return and have another amazing experience.

Great beach house

  • 5 of 5

We love Emerald Isle. It is our favorite beach to visit. This year we needed a bigger house to accommodate our whole family. This house met the needs of everyone. We loved the theme decorated rooms and the beautiful ocean views. We spent every night on the deck enjoying being right on the ocean. This house was close to the main shopping center restaurants, putt- putt, and the bike and running trails. We would walk or ride our bikes daily to these places. We liked that it was also pet friendly. Our dog enjoyed being there with us. We cooked everyday and found that we had all the supplies/appliances we needed. I don't agree with Steve's review and don't know how anyone could be so upset at the beach!

4th Time Here as Great as the First!

  • 5 of 5

As a family that has stayed here 4 times in the last 3 years, most recently June 2016, we find Steve R.'s negative review outrageous. For each of our stays, (see our previous reviews back through 2014) the house was impeccably clean, freshly appointed, and well maintained. We always opt for early entry, and are appreciative of the excellent job the cleaning crew does to quickly turn over the house to us. It is professionally decorated just as the video shows, and equipped with everything anyone would need. We've never experienced any hint of trouble with plumbing, AC, or appliances. Our last trip in June we noted that all the living and dining room sofas and chairs had beautiful, new upholstery. If it was dirty as Steve said, it is due to the tenants there after us, of which Steve is one of 2. Jackie has repeatedly demonstrated the utmost professionalism and integrity. She responds within moments to any inquiry we've had, and she's always returned 100% of our security deposit within days of our stay. We've never met Jackie nor Steve, but we've rented four times here, and _nothing_ Steve writes in his review has any credibility with us.

Stay away from this rental. This owner is not very professional. We were threatened with extra charges and contract violation for cleaning due to someone coming in the house early and after investigating it was found that the cleaning service authorized the entry. Also the unit has many broken and dated appliances. The furniture is awful and dirty, and the decks have nails sticking up. As a bonus we had a septic back up for two days. How refreshing! This place needs maintenance.

Owner's Response: Hello Steve, I am so sorry that you were unhappy with your week. May I suggest on your next visit to our wonderful town, you find different accommodations. "Thank you very much,"

Fall Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying at NWZE, and simply put, there is no where we rather be! We love the house, location, neighbors, and ocean views. We had great times fishing the surf and pier, with mid-October water temps in the 70s. There were Dolphins, schools of fish, and shrimp boats anytime we looked out.

The house itself is beautifully turned out, with every bedroom having its own charming theme, comfortable bed and quality linens. The open kitchen, dining, great room with window wall facing the ocean is ideal for family gatherings. Anything we might need is here but for our own clothes and personal items. Love the shopping plaza with locally owned shops rather than big chain tourist traps usually found in Oceanside communities. The only negative about NWZE is the week passes too quickly and we HATE leaving! Thank you, Jackie for sharing your beautiful home. Our family has made so many treasured memories here and we look forward to our next trip back.

Excellent location; great town; fantastic vacation

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at No Wake Zone East (NWZE). The rooms were a good size for the eight adults and five kids in our group. Bathrooms were small, but adequate - one more would have been nice for the four families in our group (we knew what we were getting into before we went, so that was on us).

The two best parts of NWZE were: location and town. Being right on the ocean was an amazing part of the trip. Private access was so helpful for our older parents and we could run back to the house for food, drinks, bathroom, etc. Convenience of the location was outstanding. We also really enjoyed Emerald Isle. Not too big, overcrowded, or over-commercialized like Outer Banks. Not sitting in 6 hours of traffic to get across the bridge like we have in previous years to Outer Banks was heavenly. That really started out the trip perfectly.

Kitchen was nicely stocked with everything we needed. Plenty of beach gear already at the house. Gas grill was nice to have so we could grill some of the delicious local catches of the day.

Really the only down side was the group in the adjacent half of the condo: they were a bit loud some nights-well beyond midnight. But again, that was our unfortunate luck...nothing against NWZE per se.

We would recommend Emerald Ise and NWZE to our friends and will certainly consider it for our next beach vacation.
