Wonderful memories will be shared when vacationing in our new, family friendly, ocean-side home. Claddagh House, completed in October, 2006 is professionally decorated for fun, relaxation and rejuvenation and loaded with amenities! The surrounding grounds are professionally landscaped for the tropical look and provide plenty of parking spaces.
Staying at home? How about a dip in your own private pool, which can be heated for an extra fee. Weary from travel and shopping? Take your treasures by elevator to your beautifully appointed bedroom or continue upward to the Great Room. This is a very comfortable gathering area featuring an entertainment area, starring a 46 inch HDTV with CD/DVD all in surround sound.
Adjacent is the dining area with seating for all. Step outside to the large, covered, rambling deck and see gorgeous ocean and sound views, while shielded from the sun. For the sunbathers, we have open decks above the pool area for communication with 'ole sol' until your heart's content. The inviting blue ocean is a 2 to 3 minute stroll via a constructed walk-way for uncrowded swimming, shell seeking, castle building and dream-making. Eateries, shopping and things to do are close by, without intruding on your enjoyment of this special time.
On the ground level, there is an enclosed entrance for accessing three floor elevator, resting bench and entrance to pool area. A large picnic table and park-style charcoal grill are available. Please note, the pool area is guarded by a high fence and gates with over-the-top latching devices. Every effort has been made to protect young children from gaining access to the pool unless supervised. Covered parking is available.
The second level has 4 spacious bedrooms and 2 full baths with walk in shower and seat, including a king bed, queen bed, twin beds and a pyramid bunk with trundle, while a large half-bath accesses the pool area. The King and Queen rooms also have sliders to a secluded deck with rockers.

Features include full bright kitchen, dining room and great room, TV, DVD, CD home theater center with surround sound, powder room, an alcove equipped for internet access, home is equipped with wireless access for your convenience, (use your notebook or laptop anywhere), and stocked bookshelves for your reading pleasure.

A water location is on the top of our wish list. So when the opportunity to build came along, we decided to build a 'Family Beach Home', a place that we could 'build memories' for our children, grandchildren and dear friends. It is our desire to share 'Claddagh House' and the memory building with others. It has been a big success!!
The Owner purchased this house in 2007
The NC outer banks was home to us in the 1960's and we continued to vacation in Emerald Isle over the years. We found Emerald Isle to be family friendly, welcoming, with the old fashioned 'beach town' feel.
We enjoy wonderful views of both the ocean and the Inner Coastal Waterway, the incredible sunsets, peaceful relaxation at the pool, private porch swing, or just rocking with the singing birds. The Elevator gives easy access to all the levels with no struggling or steps. A private location but close enough to entertainment, water sports, golf, reliving history, antiquing, or just plain resting. It was built with family TIME in mind, and has worked perfectly!
Thank you for welcome basket full of goodies and postcard. How very thoughtful! You home in Emerald Isle is beautiful and we had a wonderful time! It was hard to go back to work last week. The weather was beautiful during our stay and we thoroughly enjoyed the beach and pool. The location and layout of your home was perfect for us. The girls enjoyed running every morning on Ocean Dr. and collecting sea shells on the beach. It was a pleasure meeting Clif, what a great guy and so helpful. Thanks for providing the perfect place for our family vacation.
We enjoyed our stay at the house. We had a little trouble with the ice maker but everything else was good. The owners are very easy to work with and will accommodate you the best they can. The pool was great. The walk to the beach is very accessible. Even though I prefer being on the ocean, I would consider staying here again if needed. It is a very quiet neighborhood and the house was well suited for my family. The views from the balcony are beautiful. Love all of the rocking chairs on the porches. Thank you for opening your home to us.
Perfect location in Emerald Isle. This beautiful beach home has plenty of room for everyone. The pool is great and the elevator made a wonderful and relaxing trip even better!!!
We had a wonderful time in this house. Everything was as advertised and the owners were delightful to work with. This house is beautiful and well maintained. The kids loved having access to their own pool. The short walk to the beach was over before you knew it and the quiet almost empty beach made for relaxing time with plenty of room to spread out.
If I had to come up with anything negative it would have to be the ice maker in the fridge. I'm not sure if it was jammed or what, but, dispensing ice was a challange and the water in the door came out at a trickle.. These issues were quickly overlooked however, as everthing else made up for it.
Thank you so much for allowing us into your home.
We had a wonderful family vacation at this well maintained beach home. It was well designed so it readily accommodated a family of 12. The elevator was greatly appreciated. It was very quiet and worked without any problems. The description and photos were accurate. It was an easy walk to the beach. Contact with the owners was great. When we wanted the pool heated, the owners had that promptly done. We are so glad we found this rental. It is in a quiet area and close to convenience stores and only a short drive to a large shopping center. We are renting this home next year.
The Claddagh House is a lovely, well kept property that our family enjoyed immensely. We brought our adult children and grandchildren from across the country to meet with other family members in the area. We had planned the trip for a year and I was in touch with Mary Ann throughout. She could not have been more accommodating, even making sure that the pool could be heated for our little ones (at an extra charge of course). It is obvious that they take personal pride in the property. We filled up the house and with all of the bathrooms/bedrooms we never had a complaint. We loved having the master upstairs! It is just a short walk to the beach, the outside shower is perfect upon return and then a dip in the pool just tops off the day! The kitchen is well stocked with appliances and kitchen tools so meals were a breeze. We would highly recommend this property and hope to return soon!
This was the perfect spot for our family. Great house and pool. close beach access. We have a child in a wheelchair and the elevator and the ability to loan beach wheelchairs from the local FD made this an amazing vacation
