About Darryl Nixon

Originally from Washington, DC, we have resided on the eastern shore of Maryland since 1982. We lived in the Havelock - New Bern area from 1978 to 1982. That is when we discovered the wonders of the Crystal Coast.

Darryl Nixon purchased this house in 2007

Why Darryl Nixon chose Coastal North Carolina

We bought this property because it has everything that we want in a beach house. It is conveniently located close to the Rt. 58 bridge, which allows easy access, especially when the beach traffic is heavy.

What makes this house unique

Every day, we see dolphins swim by. We walk on the beach...then go to any number of great restaurants to restore the lost calories.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your home is fabulous; my family really enjoyed it. We got some nice weather too. I know my daughter wants us to come back so this would be our choice. My wife's Thanksgivinng dinner turned out great; everything we needed was there.

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This house worked out beautifully and the layout couldn't have been better. There were 8 of us, two families of 4, and everyone had their own space. Our daughter & their son were getting married! We all loved everything from the awesome views from the large deck, the living space with wet bar, the incredibly stocked kitchen and the simple but elegant décor. The house was so close to food and entertainment, both of which we took advantage of! We are already looking forward to booking again next year to celebrate the 1 year anniversary of our children! Thank you, Nixon Family, for a beautiful home!

Beautiful Place, Beautiful Views!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. It was in a great location that was close to stores and things to do, but also not in a highly crowded area of the beach. We were there for a wedding, so we wanted to be close to the venue, and this was only a mile or so a way. Very clean, nice furniture and all the appliances were nice. Rooms were good size and plenty of bathrooms for everyone we had, which was 8 total. Had it's own walkway to the beach, which was very short, so it was easy carrying all of our stuff back the house at the end of the day. Owners were very easy to work with too. We would definitely stay here again!

Had a wonderful time. We go to Emerald Isle with friends to watch the ACC tournament every year, and even though our teams didn't win, we still loved every minute. The house is great with wonderful access to the beach. Beautiful view of ocean! Beds are comfortable. Kitchen is well stocked. The only negative was that it was cold that week, and the downstairs was too cool. Would definitely rent again.

Gorgeous views and a prime location

  • 4 of 5

We rented the cottage for a week in early March and although the weather was chilly and rainy our trip to Emerald Isle was wonderful! The home had a well appointed kitchen, stunning oceanfront views and a mater retreat that was spacious, well designed and extremely private. There were many extras that made our stay extra comfortable including covered parking, beach chairs available under the house, a large jacuzzi tub and a wet bar area with everything from a blender to special glassware. The best part, you could step off the deck and literally dip your toes in the sand! My fiance proposed our first night there, so your home will always hold special memories for us! Thank you for sharing your lovely beach retreat.

Great Thanksgiving Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed this lovely house with my brother and his fellow Marines before their deployment. We found everything we needed to cook a great Thanksgiving/birthday dinner. Our beds were comfy, the house was clean, the location was convenient, and the weather was perfect. The owner was very easy and prompt to communicate with us. We hope to return here some time in the future!
