About the property

Duplex, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 11) 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.

We have been a part of the HomeAway rental program since 2010.

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!)

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.

Perfect Relaxing Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Debby was a great host - she was conscientious to e-mail us a few days before our arrival date to let us know the specifics, and even left us some delicious brownie treats in the fridge! When we walked in everything was immaculate, clean, and you could smell the ocean and feel the breeze! The house had everything you could ask for, multiple decks, comfortable furniture and beds, and a walk-out right to the beach. You really don't need to bring anything but the clothes on your back - the house has all kitchen utensils, bedding, etc. included. This was a great vacation home and we can't wait to go back!

Near perfect spot even in December!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a few days here in December enjoying Emerald Isle and the unbeatable ocean view. Every morning I was able to wake up to the sounds of the surf, take a cup of coffee to the full windowed top floor and watch lines of dolphins dip and rise just off shore. That is an experience that's hard to say goodbye to and with the weather being very mild I could enjoy sitting out on the decks as well. The house is truly a perfect, stress free getaway. Just about every need is covered, the bedrooms are nicely laid out, decor is pleasant and fun without being fussy or overdone. Everything immaculately clean and updated. Since it was December the island itself was quiet and many of the tourist oriented stores and restaurants were closed for the low season but the convenient CVS, grocery, movie theater were all within walking distance or a short drive. If you want a homey, comfortable place at any time of the year to just relax and enjoy the natural gift that is a sea shore I can't recommend this house enough. Perfect size for family vacations or just for two or in between.

Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful property. My family and I have been coming to this same spot year after year and it never disappoints. We love the elegance of the new remodel, the dolphins outside our window daily, the shopping near by, and the hospitality of the home owners. All treasures and the perfect recipe for a relaxed vacation.

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!!!

Dolphins regularly swim near the sandbars in front of our house. We even saw a lost small whale in May! He treated us to a show for about 5 minutes and then headed back out to deeper waters-PRICELESS!
