Emerald Isle 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-

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, Fishing 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 . . .

Guestbook comments from the owner

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!

Beach Front Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

When my family and I booked this rental property we were in desperate need of a getaway from our busy work schedules. We could not have picked a better place for rest and relaxation. The home has been updated with beautiful soothing interior colors of paint, copper sinks in the master bathroom and kitchen, granite counter tops and a spectacular view from all rooms in the house especially the main floor. What a great layout of the home! After a long day on the beach taking an outdoor shower and having dinner on the upper deck overlooking the ocean were what made this place so special. The homeowners were pretty special too. Getting into the home and feeling at home right away was easy with the special treatment and care the homeowners give to their renters. We highly recommend this property and will certainly be coming back!

Great beach home maintained by great owners

  • 5 of 5

Been going to EI for 17 years and never disappointed. No Wake Zone is personally maintained and cared for by the owners which I think is what makes the experience special for the whole family. It is easy to see that Debby and Charlie love their home and take great care of it. My wife and kids enjoyed the homemade brownies upon arrival and the owners worked hard to get us into the house quickly after driving through the night. We enjoy grilling fish every night so I was excited to find out they prefer and provide a charcoal grill over gas. The beach is very close to your back door, clean and quiet so plenty of room to play Frisbee, build a castle or just read a book.

I hope EI never changes!!!

Great BeachSide Property

  • 5 of 5

Great location, beautiful beaches, and simply awesome property. Great view of the beach and ocean, with walking distance access to shops and restaurants. The property is very well looked after with large amounts of space. The multi level decks were fantastic to allow us to enjoy the beach at all time of the day. A hidden gem was the outdoor shower. Now this might sound silly, but when you have a 4 and 2 year old running about in the sand you appreciate being able to wash them off outside.

Amazing spacious home with beautiful Emerald Isle ocean views! Serene setting with modern interior upgrades, paint, and peaceful decor right on the the beach! Amenities and ample furnishings for large groups. Multi-deck levels to accommodate those wanting some sun, as well as a covered deck off the master suite also offering shaded ocean views. Truly a home away from home that comfortably accommodates families and guests of all ages. Great food and entertainment nearby. Highly recommend this vacation oasis!

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.
