Coastal North Carolina Condo Rental Photos and Description

Duplex, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 10-12) Oceanfront-Walkway to the Beach

***Just Picture Yourself Here-Check out our FB video-http://youtu.be/K7YFXHErHRM

Our oceanfront home is a sanctuary-a place to relax, unwind, and rejuvenate. We are located directly on the Atlantic Ocean with spectacular views of sunrises in the east and sunsets in the west. No Wake Zone West provides all the needed amenities plus those that only God can provide . . . again the sunrises and sunsets, the smell of the salt air, gorgeous waves, soft sand, pelican fly-overs, and the bountiful and unique shells that wash up on shore. Every time of the year is special and there is no bad day at the beach. We've enjoyed the strong winds and powerful waves during tropical storms, the awesome hot days of summer, and the relaxing cool days of autumn. The mere sound of the ocean waves brings a calmness to weary travelers. It's nice to go to sleep and wake up to the steady rhythm of the Atlantic Ocean. Within Walking Distance of Restaurants, Ice Cream, Mini-Golf, Shopping, Bike & Kayak Rentals, Pier

Why the Owner Chose Emerald Isle:: Emerald Isle-just the mention of the name evokes a place of beauty and calm. Who wouldn't want to be there and to share with others! Great place for military homecomings and family reunions!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:: Year Purchased: 2000 - We love the sound of the waves, any kind of weather, the soft white sand, the dolphins, the pelican fly-overs, the family memories we've made at our place. We had our families from TEXAS and our new-to-the family members from NEW YORK stay at the duplex for our daughter's wedding. Great place for a Bridal Brunch and family relaxation!

Owner Description/Comments: : Charley & I have enjoyed Emerald Isle for many years. It's always been a retreat for us-to relax and to just focus on the truly important things in life. We invite you to do the same . . .

Turtles hatched on Tuesday (after our Saturday arrival). Everything is fine, we had a great time fishing, sightseeing and I even drew a sketch of the beach on a rainy day (Not Sotheby's material though!)

Thank you for the hospitality!

Family Summer Get-a-Way

  • 5 of 5

Picture perfect vacation. This home was a home away from home. All amenities of your own home, with a view. Step out to the oceanfront and walk for miles along the shore. There were ten of us renting this home, 3 children, 7 adults. Everyone had fun, from mini golf to a day at the beach. Minutes away from golf, miniature golf, dining, movies. Our family favorite place to dine used to be Rucker John's, but the newly opened Portafino is our first choice now, serving italian cuisine. We have been on the island before, and we definately have decided rental of this home is the way to go. Would recommend this home for a family reunion, get a way, etc.

Owner's Response: So glad you all enjoyed your family get together in our part of paradise! It seems you took advantage of the local near by sights to see as well as just soaking up the spaciousness of our home. It is a great place to just be still and to enjoy the beauty of the ocean, sand, and the pelican "fly-overs" as well as the dolphin swimming along. Glad you could all be together in our home-come back & see us!

Refresh and Rejuvenate

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful and spacious home for the gathering of friends or family. We had a women's retreat at the beach this spring and this was the perfect spot for us to relax, refresh, and rejuvenate! The beach is quiet and peaceful and the Emerald Isle pier is within walking distance. There is also a walking/biking trail nearby. A great spot!

Let's Go to the Beach- In December!!

  • 5 of 5

When my family originally said that we should go to the Beach in December, I thought they must be out of their minds, due to it being too cold. However this was a wonderfully warm December, and we ended up staying at what I consider the "Hot Spot" on the Island. The island is called Emerald Isle, but I believe we truly found the best Jewel on the island with this lovely home. We loved the lovely open floor plan. From large windows that allowed us to see the dolphin swimming by every morning to evening sunsets. The open floor plan was very unique and so practical being that the family room, kitchen, and dining room is all located upstairs allowing for everyone to enjoy the views, while being together. The bathrooms and kitchen have lovely granite countertops giving us a high quality living feel during our stay. Plenty of space for the entire family and the home provides everything from cooking equipment to bedsheets, making it easy to stay in and be cozy! We recommend staying at this location and will return next summer too!

Owner's Response: So glad you and your family were able to enjoy the beauty of our home and the beach with lovely December weather! The reverse floor plan allows the best view of the ocean right out the door as well wildlife in the water & in the air. We want our guests to feel at home & to be comfortable. We have the beds made when they arrive so that they can just hit the beach to put their toes in the sand. We look forward to seeing you and your family again this summer !

Little Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My stay at Emerad Isle was a gift from my daughter for my birthday. I could not have asked for a better gift. I like the beach any time of the year. The house was perfect for us. It is well kept and has all the amenities necessary for an enjoyable stay. The deck featured enough chairs for everyone to enjoy the sun, listen to the waves and watch the sun go down. I would recommend this lovely home to anyone. Until next year...

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this house for a wonderful get-a-way to celebrate a couple of birthdays, girl time, and family togetherness. We had great time! Perfect location, plenty of room for everyone, and easy access to the beach and local activities. The property is child friendly with games, etc. The owners were responsive and shared suggestions to our groups needs. The property was clean, well maintained, and presented a comfortable stay. What a treat!

Will I vacation here again? Absolutely!!!

Owner's Response: So glad you and your family had a wonderful time bonding together in our home on Emerald Isle! The peace and serenity of our surroundings - the ocean, birds, sunrises and sunsets-always helps one to restore. You are always welcome to return!

Great Emerald Isle Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this house last week during our wonderful vacation at Emerald Isle. It was our first time visiting Emerald Isle and everyone agreed the location of the house was perfect. First of all, the house is exactly as advertised. The owner was very responsive to all of our inquiries leading up to our actual week at the property. Access to the beach is very convenient and the beach itself was great. The pier is a very short walking distance from the house and grocery store/shops are all a very short drive away. The kids loved riding their rented bikes on the designated bike trails which led them conveniently to the ice cream shop! The main living area is on the third floor and that was a little tough on our elderly family members. But we knew that from the start and I have to say, the view of the beach from the rocking chairs on that top floor probably made it all worth it!

Notes:
The upper floor is known as the 'Grand Room'-it's the living room, dining area, and kitchen. The half round window above the triple glass doors provides awesome viewing of 'Pelican Flyovers'! The triple patio doors, windows, bay window, and kitchen window all provide more than a mere glimpse of the ocean and its life. The 5th bedroom with queen-size bed and 3d full bath are on this floor as well. Unique views exist even in the kitchen! Each of the 2d & 3d floor bedrooms has a view of the ocean. Our neighbor's home is located near the front of their lot and does not impede the awesome views. The bedroom on the first floor, normally used by children, has a window that views our outdoor sitting area, and the dunes that we've helped encourage to protect us! There are more than 200 Christmas trees helping to anchor the strong beach grass under the sand of our dunes.
