Emerald Isle House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)


Beautifully renovated in 2012


Years ago, when we discovered this home, it was sand-covered and neglected, but the location was priceless. Today it is a refreshing, comfortable treasure surrounded by water on three sides, with a deck opening directly onto the beach and breath-taking sunset views.

Your stay at this bright, colorful oceanfront home offers opportunities to enjoy sea breeze respites on the porch, deck or beach.

Or you can try your luck surf fishing at ocean’s edge or flounder gigging in the channel, “the honey pot” as the locals call it. Bear Island is just across the inlet and there is abundant sand for castle-building and sunning. The beach is just short of feeling completely private.

The house itself boasts lively, inspiring décor that invites gatherings in the family room, breakfast room and kitchen. In the colder months, with the fireplace ablaze, the space is intimate and cozy. The kitchen is comfortable, current and well equipped. For those who find relaxation in the latest movie offerings or sports events, the large flat screen television is at the ready. Each bedroom also has a television to accommodate differences of opinion. Both the master and guest bedroom overlook the water.

In the event that you find yourself in need of getting away from all this, a short car ride away, you’ll find a plethora of things to do. There is shopping in Swansboro, and Morehead City, fine dining and art in Beaufort, antique hunting in New Bern and Jacksonville for all the rest.

We hope that you will consider treating yourself to a stay at this easy, relaxing oceanfront jewel.

Wonderful Beach Experience

  • 5 of 5

This home is located in an absolute perfect location. Walk out onto the deck and view the ocean and the point on the other. Quiet and relaxing. The house is beautiful, nice big kitchen and living area and bedrooms are large. Very convenient to grocery store and restaurants. Highly recommended for a vacation stay!

A wonderful vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic beach cottage with amenities for your every need. Great decor, cozy and charming. Lots of things to do nearby. You'll find more seashells than you can carry and sunsets that will blow you away. We had a great time and hope to return again soon.

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

I am a repeat customer to this lovely beach house and I would never stay anywhere else in Emerald Isle. It's nestled right on the beach allowing you to basically have a private beach for you and your family/friends. Restaurants, bars, etc. are located within miles of the house allowing it to be a very cheap cab drive. The house itself is decorated beautifully and has every amenity you could ask for. Needless to say we will continue staying at this amazing house.

Owner's Response: Thank you! The positive comments are so much appreciated! I am thrilled you had a great time! I agree our home is one of the best and the location is outstanding and convenient to everything but still very private. The private beach is so peaceful with the most gorgeous sunsets that you could ever image. We hope you will continue to revisit us in the future and we will continue to strive to be the best. Thank you!

Our family had a wonderful stay at this beautiful beach home. The home had all the amenities we could possible need for a relaxing vacation. The gorgeous sunsets from the deck were the best we have ever seen and the ocean & bay views were perfect.

Winter Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a great place for a winter escape to the beach -- or a beach vacation any time of year! The house is lovely, very comfortable, and just as pictured in the photos. We experienced every kind of weather -- sunshine and bright blue skies, cloudy days, snow and ice, foggy days -- and the gas fireplace was wonderful. During the usually cold weather (for North Carolina) the water pipes froze, but within minutes of a phone call they were being thawed and all was well. Fresh fish and clams from Clyde Phillips Seafood in Swansboro provided the ingredients for delicious dinners. Walks on the beach, gorgeous sunsets, watching beach work from the channel dredging project, cooking that yummy seafood, reading by the fireplace -- what could be better?

The property is just as described, and was clean, well maintained, and all ready for us when we arrived. Faye responded promptly to a few emails with questions prior to arrival as well as a phone call or two while we were there.

Owner's Response: It's always nice to hear positive comments about your home. We are so happy to hear that your vacation at our beach home was pleasant even though the weather has been unusually cold and with more than normal snowfall. Emerald Isle is one of the most beautiful places in the world and we feel as though our home is the best location on the island. We love sharing with special people like you. We try very hard to make sure not just our home lives up to your vacation expectations but we also strive to respond to any concerns or maintenance/service needs during your vacation. Thank you so much and please vacation with us in the near future!
