About the property

Oceanfront Duplex/House, 4 Bedrooms, (sleeps 8) Mile Marker 17 1/2

A Southern Exposure East is a Sunday to Sunday rental during Summer season. This home offers a beautiful, relaxing beachfront retreat. Enjoy a large, wall mounted HDTV in the family room. You will have WIfi access throughout home. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the equipment you might need to prepare any meal. No pets please. Please email or call and do not book our property online.

There is a ceiling fan, flat screen TV and DVD player in every bedroom.

There are three bedrooms upstairs; one king, one queen, and one with two doubles. On the main level is a queen bedroom, along with a full bath. The large master bedroom upstairs has a private deck overlooking the ocean as well as a large, jetted, garden tub in the bathroom with an ocean view as well.

One of the best parts of our home are the open and covered decks with panoramic ocean views! Enjoy the beach from the rockers or lounge chairs right outside your door, or from the seated area on the dune which is at the end of the walkway to the beach. The house is located on a cul-de-sac street allowing for very little traffic.

Since you are steps away from the beach, you can come and go as you please without having to carry your belongings across the street. The enclosed, hot/cold outdoor shower is a great convenience, and you will enjoy the completely enclosed, large garage, paved driveway, and landscaped yard. We also have a charcoal grill available for your use

If you are able to tear your selves away from the lovely beach, you will find that Morehead city, Historic Beaufort and Swansboro (each about 20 mins. away) offer an array of activities, sport, shopping and restaurants. There are ferry rides to a number of locations, fishing charters, and boat rentals. There are several golf courses minutes away, as well as the renowned NC Aquarium. Right down the street you will enjoy a variety of shops, eating establishments and a movie theater, all with a small town feel.

This property rents for a minimum of three nights (seven nights during the high season), and weekly rentals are from Sunday to Sunday. Please contact us with any questions you might have. Do not book online.

About Barbara Pearson

We are a family of four. Our favorite place to be is Emerald Isle.

Barbara Pearson purchased this house in 2001

Why Barbara Pearson chose Coastal North Carolina

We have been vacationing in Emerald Isle since 1993 when our children were very young, and our extended family would join us. It has such a unique, family friendly, small town feel that there was no other choice for us when we decided to purchase a property in 2002.

What makes this house unique

We love the fact that you can be virtually anywhere in the house and look out at the ocean in all it's various stages. The younger members of the group love to sit on the beach. Others enjoy lounging on the decks or a walk to the pier, while some prefer to ride bikes to shop or play putt putt. We are so happy to share our beach home and this wonderful island with our guests.

Wonderful view!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Emerald Isle and we could understand why so many people fall in love with it! The beach and ocean are beautiful. This house had an amazing oceanfront view with a nice walkway to the beach. We enjoyed sitting on the porch reading and listening to the ocean. The bedrooms were spacious and provided plenty of space for our family. We appreciated the close proximity to biking/running trail along Emerald Drive and we enjoyed the trail every day. We also found great restaurants and water sports nearby. It was a wonderful retreat for our family!

Great house, great week!

  • 5 of 5

This oceanfront house has all the amenities for a successful vacation at the beach. It's location is close to town and the boat launch. It has a shaded porch and outside shower and a beautiful walkway to the beach. The kitchen is fully equipped and the open living/dining area encouraged family interaction. The beds were comfy and the 3 bathrooms were perfectly located for our family. We hope to stay here again soon.

Booked for Next year

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house in a great area. Everything we could have wanted was here. House was super CLEAN which for an older beach house exceeded our expectations. Rooms were big and bright. We have already reserved the same week at this house for next year.

Lovely Vacation Property, Clean, and Convenient All Around

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property with plenty of room, extremely easy and short access to the beach while still maintaining privacy. The kitchen was well stocked, cable TV in every room (family friendly DVDs provided), the master bedroom has its own deck looking out at the ocean (great views from both decks). Outdoor private shower, enclosed garage underneath, even a couple of bikes with helmets for the kids. Very clean, which is a must for us, and well maintained (all amenities included and perfect). Located in one of the more desirable locations at Emerald Isle on a quiet street with no thru traffic in its block. Convenient to other beaches and towns on the island. We will definitely stay again, many thanks.

Mr. and Mrs. Love the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a fabulous week at this ocean front property with two other couples. There was plenty of space and comfortable seating for all of us - including an upper and lower deck with great chairs for watching occasional dolphins and wind surfers. The property is well maintained both inside and out. We food lovers cooked all our own meals in the well-equipped kitchen. The private walkway to the beach (right out the back door) is so convenient. I can't tell you how many fun games of bocce ball we played on Emerald Isle's fantastic sand. The local bike shop delivered our rental bikes right at the property so we could ride miles in either direction, either on the new bike paths or on the beach itself. I took some classes at EI Department of Parks and Recreation which is located nearby. They have a friendly staff and offer daily admission for non-residents. I'd definitely stay at this property again and highly recommend it to others. Happy vacationing!

Wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home, clean and wonderful ocean views. Good access to the beach. Only small thing is the stove needs some help -- the burners aren't flat and easy to use, but that's a small thing. My whole family had a great time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for bringing the burner problem to our attention. We have addressed the issue and the burners are now flat. In the future don't hesitate to contact our management company if any problem arises during your stay.
