About Denise Stokley

Im a women from the Wilmington area who moved to Emerald Isle in 2012. I plan to retire here in Emerald Cove and enjoy this beautiful place, and all it has to offer to me and my family.

Denise Stokley purchased this condo in 2013

Why Denise Stokley chose Coastal North Carolina

Im from the wilmington nc area where I originated for about 30 some years, myself and family visited the crystal coast regularly for many years before we decided to buy a place here where we want to retire someday. I realized quickly these pristine coastlines with an authentic natural beauty all its own was incredible and unmistakable, with its truly Emerald colored waters and vivid sunsets and warm summer breezes and friendly neighbors, I knew that this wholesome and healthy environment and was where I wanted to be.

It seems the vegetation and habitats here are thriving.!

What makes this condo unique

When choosing this property the first thing catching my eye was the lovely white steeple rising just above the trees as though it was a beacon to show me where home was and could be seen from the main street that crosses Emerald Cove and is lit up at night.

When I turned into Emerald Cove the first thing I saw was several delightful white cottages in a row, and a larger building of cottages on the end that looked as though they were on top of the water! It seemed as though threw careful planning this unique little community really looked to good to be true, with its manicured lawns and inviting swimming pool located at its entrance and perfectly placed dock at its back, would indeed be a place to call home.

And finally you can here both the sounds of the waves on the shore line , as well as the wind and soft breezes off the sound.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have just enjoyed the most relaxing and stimulating vacation at your amazing condo. Every detail was planned for our comfort. all the way down to a fresh bowl with fruit and candy!

The accommodations where superb. The place was small but inviting and comfortable but elegant.

I will plan on staying there from now on any time I travel to Emerald Isle

Thank you very much for making our stay wonderful and memorable.

We'll be back!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Denise's property. Although the place is a studio style condo, we were very comfortable (and really spent most of our time on the beach). The Murphy bed and sofa sleeper were comfortable. The sunsets from the back deck were stunning!

Denise was very nice and easy reach via email or phone.

The reason for the 4 stars vs 5 is due to the shower. We had trouble getting the shower head to work and therefore, had to use the hand held shower head. It was a bit awkward. Please note, that we didn't try to call Denise to let her know and therefore, didn't give her the opportunity to fix. We just made it work for our short stay. If you are a bath person, you'll love the tub, a deep claw foot tub!

The shower would not prevent us from staying here again. We would definitely return!

A nice stay with a few minor issues

  • 3 of 5

Our check in time was 3:30 however the condo was still being cleaned and wasn't ready until 4:30. We were given a bottle of wine to compensate. The bathroom door doesn't shut. The views from the balcony are nice and it's a short walk to the beach or a short drive to public beach parking which is free through the week.

Wonderful holiday trip!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cozy condo! My boyfriend and I spent the week of July 4th here, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The property was very clean, the bed was comfy, and the location was perfect. There is a pool on site that is great for cooling down and relaxing, and the beach was just across the street. This property is close enough to town to get there and see the sites, but far enough away so that there isn't a crowd. It felt like we had the beach all to ourselves- on a holiday week! There is a dock in the back where we fished privately in the evenings. The view off the balcony is AMAZING! Also, Denise was wonderful. We got there a lot earlier than planned, and she was kind enough to let us skip in early. She was also available whenever we had questions. Overall it was a splendid trip. We can't wait to return.

I enjoyed a 4 Night stay with my Yorkshire Terrier. We loved the short two block walk to the clean, quite, dog friendly beach. The Sunsets were amazing and I strolled the beach with wine glass in hand. It's refreshing to go to a beach where there are very few restrictions. The accommodations were clean, comfortable and well appointed. The bed had a Temperpedic Ultra Comfortable mattress! I have a cleaning business so I'm more discerning than most when it comes to cleanliness & comfort. Every need was met! The Soundside patio was my favorite place to enjoy with my pet. I will definitely return! Denise is the Perfect Hostess with the MOSTEST!
