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-

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!

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!

Amazing oceanfront house!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful stay at this amazing oceanfront house! The view of the beach from the master bedroom, living room/kitchen and decks was breathtaking. We felt like we were right in the sand even when we were inside! The furniture in the living room/kitchen was comfy and we had enough seating for our large group. The bedrooms were nicely furnished, the beds were comfy and having three bathrooms (all with showers) was so nice! The outdoor shower was a plus and there were tons of rocking chairs and other chairs outside. It was just a short walk to the beach and there was plenty of storage for all our beach chairs, sand toys and umbrellas. We also had plenty of driveway for all of our cars!

If I ever had a question, the owner responded quickly and also sent me information about the area. I felt like she was a part of our family and am so grateful she shared her beautiful home with us! I highly recommend this house!

Owner's Response: Amber & Family, How wonderful that you all had a great time together in our home on Emerald Isle! So glad you all were comfortable in our updated furnishings and that you took note of how close we are to the water! The sunrises & sunsets can be enjoyed from several angles on the deck and in the house, too. Even though we are close to grocery stores, restaurants, and water activity rentals, many of our guests just prefer to stay put and relax . . . Thank you for making us part of your family-come on back when you're wanting to "chill" & be together! Debby & Charley

Everything at your fingertips!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at this beach house! Everything we needed was available at this house. Fully stocked kitchen... And a very, comfortable and inviting home. Our kids (teens) had an amazing time... And we felt safe letting them go to the beach by themselves. The views were spectacular! We saw dolphins go by one day, and everyday we had Pelicans fly over us on the balcony. It was a very relaxing vacation! Thank you Debby and Charley!

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!

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.
