8 Bedrooms, 6 Baths (Sleeps 20)
This property has been owned by two families since 2001. Both families reside in the Raleigh area. Debbie is originally from Swansboro NC, Elly is from South Africa and her husband Roy is from Ireland! We all love the beach and all it has to offer and we hope you will enjoy our house as much as we do and create your own special memories here!
Debbie purchased this House in 2001
Why Debbie chose Emerald Isle
We fell in love with this property because of the beautiful views and privacy. Our house sits on a high dune which affords us gorgeous views and the lot beside us is a treed lot. We love to ride our bikes to the Emerald Isle trails or simply stay on Ocean Drive and with the lovely breezes.
What makes this House unique
Every year since we bought this home we have focused on updating the house. However within the last couple of years we have done major updates which include adding 2 bathrooms, putting in new windows, new floors (2018), new decks, new walk ways and new siding. This March we also added new 50+ inch T.V. and new sofa pillows. Our property is very unique in that there is no traffic because we are at the end of the street and the property beside us remains treed and undeveloped.

Enjoyed so much
Loved the property. Covered Porch and close to ocean
Great week at the beach
Both sides of the duplex worked well with a few days 17 of us from age 3 to 68. Allowed for putting younger children to bed and adults having space to gather. Rocking chair porch allowed for great place to relax and view of the ocean. One of the easiest and most convenient accesses to the beach.
Great Ocean View!
We had a full house for the week and it was very comfortable. The layout of the house is great for large groups. The kitchen was well equipped and the rooms were very comfortable.
Great Beach House!
We loved our stay at Catalina. Great location, great ocean views. We rented both sides and having the inside door between them made all the difference--it felt like one big house. We loved sitting on the deck watching the ocean, and cooking meals in the well-stocked kitchen. The only improvements we'd recommend is better WiFi and dressers in the King bedrooms. We hope to return next year!
We really enjoyed our stay! Great property and beach!
Thank you for a great stay! We enjoyed our time inn Emerald Isle.
Thank you Meredith for your nice review. We are so glad that you enjoyed staying at our house and hope that you will come again.
