About the property

5 bedroom, 3 bathroom house with views of ocean and sound. 6th row from beach.

Great views of sound and ocean! Wonderful gathering spaces and private spaces. USA Today rated Emerald Isle 1 of 10 best on the Atlantic coast. “North Carolina’s Emerald Isle, located in the Southern Outer Banks, is perhaps the most beautiful stretch of sand in the Carolinas. Calm waters make it a perfect choice for safe swimming, and if you get bored with lazing in the sand, hop on a boat for some dolphin watching.” CNN includes Emerald Isle on their list of 16 can't miss beaches "Emerald Isle is located on the western half of the Bogue Banks barrier island of the Southern Outer Banks. The family oriented beach community offers vacation rentals galore".

Your family and friends will love the great open areas, private bedrooms, and breath taking views our home, “Matt’s Views”, has to offer. You can relax in the upstairs loft sipping your morning coffee and see both the ocean and sound at the same time . So peaceful and tranquil.

There are 4 separate decks from which to enjoy the natural beauty of the island . 3 of them are accessed from a bedroom. Look from the back and side over a canopy of greenery to see the entire Intercoastal Waterway / Sound with small islands and sailboats drifting by, or look out the front to see the sunlight glistening off of the ocean. Sunrises are worth getting up for and sunsets can’t be missed!

The large well equipped kitchen with lots of counter space makes preparing meals or snacks easy for a large group.

A short walk puts you on the flat, sandy beach where you will appreciate the laid back quiet family atmosphere with kids in the surf and dolphins parading up and down the shoreline. If you're lucky, there may be some sea turtle nests to visit (but please don’t disturb).

We can help arrange for linens on or off the bed for $50 per bedroom if you prefer

Your four-legged friends are welcome, too, maximum of two pets, with a minimum of $150, non-refundable, fee.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are on our way home and only have 2.5 hrs left. We can't thank you enough for allowing us to rent your beautiful beach house. We had everything we needed and plenty of space for all 5 of us and our two labs. We cooked and grilled in two nights. The kitchen was well stocked and spacious! Loved the views, the decks, and the location. We will definitely be back. I'm hoping to get more family to come with us next time. Loved our time on the beach and visited the aquarium yesterday, loved it! We cleaned and set the trash and recyclables out. Now to attempt to get back into the swing of school, work, etc.!

The house was fantastic. Everyone had their privacy. The common areas were well equipped. Getting to the beach was easy. The house is clean and well maintained. We enjoyed going to The Trading Post and pitching horseshoes while waiting for dinner. Thanks Greg for a grea experience

Roomy and Well Maintained on Quiet Emerald Isle

  • 5 of 5

My family has been vacationing at the Jersey Shore for over 30 years. This year we looked for a new location close to family living in NC. With an extensive list of "needs", we finally came across Matt's Views and realized this would work for our trip.

Bedrooms are as described, kitchen was very large and accommodating, there was more than enough seating for meals (our group had 11), and best of all, a quick walk to the beach. All agreed the AC worked very well. Nearby Aquarium and Fort Macon made great day trips. We did have a dog on our stay and seeing two doggy treats waiting for tiny Brutus made us all smile.

I'm not sure that we'll be heading back to NC again, now that we have the travel bug, but it we did, we'd certainly consider this property again!

Great property

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as described. Short walk to the beach and has gorgeous views from the decks! It's very spacious which worked well for our family and we loved having two separate living room areas as well. We appreciate being able to bring our dogs too. This was our first trip to Emerald Isle and we loved the green waters and how it wasn't crowded! Would definitely go back again!

A perfect week

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house - comfortable, close to the beach, everything you need, plenty of space, close to town, but far enough away to be away from the tourist areas if you want to be, near the public boat ramp and dock (beautiful sunsets and evening paddles on my paddle board), perfect for our dogs. We will definitely consider again

Owner's Response: Your review pretty much sums up why we love it there! I'm glad that you, your family, and dogs had a great week. Please do keep us in mind for your next visit to Emerald Isle. Thank you, Greg and Terry
