About Denise Stokley

I am originally 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.

I have raised my family, two children, one of which you see photographed with me above. I have always had strong family values and encourage family vacations for building memories and strengthening family ties.

I have always had a proclivity for being in and around water, I believe it is good for the soul, mind and body!

Denise Stokley purchased this condo in 2013

Why Denise Stokley chose Coastal North Carolina

Im from Wilmington NC. My family and I visited the Crystal Coast regularly for many years before I decided to buy a place here where I intend to retire someday.

Emerald Isle has its very own authentic and captivating beauty that is uniquely unmistakable.. Truly Emerald colored waters and vivid sunsets and constant flowing warm breezes with the bright night time Stars against a deep ebony sky like I have never seen any where in the world. And if you are patient and and attentive you may likely get lucky enough to see families of Dolphin playing and feeding in the Sound off of your Balcony.

The people here are very friendly and kind and commonly eager and willing to share stories about the area.. and may even let you know when the fish are biting!

Only a few miles from Restaurant Stores and Shopping. But still private enough to be yourself.

"Saint Patrick's Day" is a big deal around here, as it should be.

I am sure you will find all I have described here to you to be so. I believe it will become one of your favorite places to be anywhere!

What makes this condo unique

When choosing this property here at Emerald Cove, I was captivated by a lovely White Steeple located in the very top of the Owner's Club House at the entrance, rising just above the trees as though it was a beacon to show the way home. It is located directly off of Emerald Drive and a nostalgic "Lighthouse" fashioned light can be seen from the street that shines BRIGHTLY all night. There are 12 units on the property. Neighbors and Guests are friendly and can often be found gathering to watch the Sunset and light conversation on the Dock as they watch the Sun setting on the horizon..

When you turn into "Emerald Cove" the first thing you will see are several delightful White Cottages in a row, and a larger building of Cottages on the end that looks as though they are on TOP of the water! Carefully planned, this unique little Community really looks to good to be true, with its manicured lawns and inviting Swimming Pool located at its entrance and perfectly placed private Dock at its back.

Even though the Condo is "Sound Side", you are close enough to the Ocean to hear the Waves washing the shore and rolling out as well as the wind and soft Breezes gently sloshing about from the beautiful "Bouge 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.

Stunning view on a water for two.

  • 3 of 5

Denise was very nice and accommodating. Of course the bathroom door would not close, but it did;t bother me, the toilet will not flash properly, but it didn't bother me either. Place was nice and clean and OK for 4 nights to stay. I would say it will be very very tight for four and know american sizes, I would not advertise as place for 4 people. My biggest issue was Wi-Fi. Denise has unsecured WiFi, that it would not connect. I took so much material to work on my laptop and I did not have Hot spots on my phone, I really struggle driving around the Isle to find free WiFi to sent some documents.

She was accommodating and very apologetic and said that Technician will come on Monday (I was leaving Sunday morning), which didn't work for me. The beach is just across the road, very close and convenient. Wonderful please to unwind yourself.

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.
