About Kellie

My husband and I purchased this property in hopes of retiring here one day. Right now we both enjoy working and living in the RTP area. We try and make as many trips to the Coast as possible. I have traveled many places and truly feel the NC Coast has some of the most beautiful beaches of anywhere. We would love for you to come and enjoy our house and make it an annual tradition to come every year with your family and friends.

Kellie purchased this house in 2011

Why Kellie chose Coastal North Carolina

I grew up near Eastern NC and always visited this beach as a child. It has many wonderful memories to me and I'd like for my children to have some memories there as well.

What makes this house unique

It is within a few miles of the new public boat dock and has ample parking in the yard for your boat and/or at least 4 vehicles. It is close to shopping, restaurants and site seeing in Emerald Isle. It is also close enough for a trip to the NC Aquarium, Beaufort, Swansboro and Fort Macon. You can also take a ferry ride to historic Shackelford banks or Cape Hatteras.

Wonderful getaway for our family!

  • 5 of 5

I was nervous to book a place online, sight unseen, as I'd never done it before. But I'm so glad I did. The price was right, the location is EXCELLENT…. literally steps to the beach. Quiet neighbors. Plenty of room for me, my teenagers, and their friends. The place was very clean and well kept, and very nicely decorated. Small kitchen but very functional and had everything we needed in terms of dishes, etc.

The owners are very quick to respond to questions and made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our week.

We loved it so much we booked again for this summer.

I only wish it was pet friendly, but I do understand why it's not.

Great Family Place!

  • 5 of 5

This home was a great location to the beach, such easy access. The home was very clean and worked perfect for our family of four. The kids loved the bunk beds! The owners were very easy to work with and responded quickly to any questions. Great location to everything on Emerald Isle and surrounding areas!

Great place for a relaxing beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed staying here. The home is clean and nicely decorated. It's perfectly situated yards from the beach and close to many attractions, e.g., restaurants, aquariums, etc. Spend the day at the beach or sightseeing and then sit on the porch with a glass of wine or cup of tea and enjoy the sounds of the ocean while sitting on the rocking chairs, best way to wind down the day. The owners were easily accessible for any questions. This is a great place to stay if you are looking for a relaxing getaway.

There are ants everywhere on this property. From the moment we arrived, we saw them outside going up the railings to the porch. They were in both bathrooms the entire week. Then, lucky us, they got all inside our car and we brought them home with us. :( this duplex is nicely decorated but is small for a family with 6 or more. Our visit would have been ok had it not been for the ants.

Excellent location for a relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this property is ideal for a relaxing beach getaway! The house is just across the street from the beach and also a good location to local restaurants and the NC Aquarium. The house was very clean and comfortably slept our party of 4. The owners are also very hospitable. We had a great time and are looking to plan our next trip there and would recommend this house for sure. Love the outdoor shower!

Truly Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely amazing. The pictures do not do this place justice. For our vacation this year we wanted a very non commercialized atmosphere and that is exactly what we got. There were no crowds and we always had a good place no matter what time we went down. This place is yards away from beach access and at night we could sit on the deck and see the ocean. The neighbors around here were respectful and quiet. The nice thing about here was we were minutes from anything on the island. This is a place that we will be returning to. So far our favorite place to vacation on the beach. Thanks again for a amazing vacation.

Owner's Response: So delighted you enjoyed your stay. I'm glad the beach was not crowded that is hard to find during peak season. Thank you and please come back again!
