Coastal North Carolina House Rental Photos and Description

4-Bedroom House with 2 full baths, (9 persons max.)

This is a very clean, well maintained and fully furnished ocean front home. It is half of a duplex. The other side of the duplex is not a rental; it is a rarely used second home. You'll have no worries about crazy neighbors or loud parties. The house is close to a lifeguard beach (seasonal) area. The house and kitchen are fully appointed. It is an excellent value and has everything you'll need for a restful stress-free vacation at the beach. An all-new larger deck was completed in April, 2016 (see photos). As you can see from all of the pictures, we strive to make this a comfortable and tastefully 'beachy' home. Among the features of this property are TimeWarner cable tv, wireless internet, central air, ceiling fans in every room, 3 flat-screen HD-TV's, and custom hand-painted tropical murals on bedroom walls. It's NOT cheap thin, uncomfortable rattan or boxy furniture, nor is it used furniture from someone's primary home. We want you to relax and be comfortable!

There are 2 ocean-front master bedrooms with queen beds and 2 bedrooms street side (partial Sound view) with doubles and singles. There are 2 full baths (1 tub/shower and 1 shower only) and a wonderful outdoor enclosed locking shower with hot and cold water and a dressing area.

Recent (within the past few years) upgrades include new carpeting, larger deck, new living room sofa, new stove and refrigerator, new kitchen sink & faucet, new TV's, new roof and many smaller changes as well. We are constantly upgrading! The landscaping and driveway were completely re-done in 2014. More improvements are planned.

There are lifeguards on the beach seasonally about 200 yards away. This house is ON THE BEACH with the same ocean, views, and ease of access as the mansions that cost 3 or 4 times as much. Wouldn't it be nice not to have to drag all your stuff to the beach from a block or more away? No carts or wagons needed. Need a drink or suntan lotion while you're at the beach? Just walk up onto the deck and get it! Maybe leave your cooler or the children's toys on the deck walkway for 1-minute access. We appreciate your inquiry and thank you for your time and for considering Beach House! E-mail or call if you have any questions or need any additional information. Best wishes for a great Emerald Isle vacation!

About Alan

Concerned, professional and responsive property owner PLUS a knowledgable local private property manager who will meet you at the house at arrival for a walk-thru to make sure everything is perfect. The local manager is then available to you during your stay for any assistance and advice.

Alan purchased this house in 2001

Why Alan chose Coastal North Carolina

We considered a beach house in several coastal communities in different states before falling in love with Emerald Isle on our first visit in fall, 2001. We immediately knew that the small town feel, absence of high-rise condos, great vacation amenities, local friendliness and gorgeous uncrowded beach made this the place we wanted to visit again and again. We still enjoy it and you will too!

What makes this house unique

One of our favorite activities is simply to eat most meals on the deck and watch the ocean, the dolphins, people enjoying the beach, and the sunrises and sunsets over the water. There have been a number of weddings on the beach right in front of this home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"I type this as I sit on the deck of your lovely Beach House and look out over the ocean one last evening. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We appreciate all the recommendations on things to do. The weather was perfect and we reluctantly have to return home tomorrow. Thank you so much for sharing your home. Should time and circumstances permit, we would love to revisit Beach House again."

Beach House - My 2nd Stay Here

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed here in 2011 and we couldn't wait to come back in 2012. The owners had made a number of improvements and the property does not disappoint. I admit that I'm not always easy to please; I'm fussy about cleaning and appearance. Both times I was very satisfied with everything at this house. The owners are gracious people and easy to work with. The handyman who works for them was prompt, charming and very helpful. They tell me that they are planning several upgrades and I will be eager to see what's in store; we just booked again for 2013. The best features include the view, location, comfortable house and the outside shower is fantastic!

Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we rented this home- we had nothing but great experiences-with the owners,with the

House and with the whole area-it was a dream vacation for our family of 7-

We have never been so close to the ocean before and saw Dolphins from the deck numerous times! The house was spotless-and had everything you could possibly need. We were fortunate to be able to meet the owners-who are just wonderful-we highly recommend this home for your get away!

Great house. Best area of Emerald Isle. Lifeguards close by. House had everything we needed. The owner even had several beach chairs and a beach umbrella for guests to use. Deck is fabulous! Nice big umbrella on deck too for shady meals and relaxing. We played cards on the deck table after the kids were in bed while we listened to the ocean. Abundant parking. Comfortable beds and furniture. Easy WiFi. House had great air conditioning. Nothing beats the sound of the ocean and having coffee out on the deck in the early morning while looking at the waves. Meet me there!

Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fabulous week on the water!! Perfect way to spend April vacation with the kids. The property was exactly as listed! Plenty of room and all the amenities of home. Wifi, laundry, dishwasher, etc, and a gorgeous new deck. Step foot off of the deck and you are on the beach. The kids were entertained as were the adults. Plenty to do on the island. Or you can just sit and enjoy the peacefulness. We found Alan extremely easy to work with. He was always just a phone call away if we needed anything as was Jerry. Jerry met us at the house and gave us all kinds of tips and tricks about the area. Going to sleep each night and waking in the morning to the sound of the ocean was amazing. Just what we needed! The weather was absolutely perfect. We will definitely be coming back. Hopefully for more than just a week!

Excellent! Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

I would definitely recommend this house to my friends. The listing and photos are perfectfully accurate and the booking process was easy. I called the owner directly and arrived 2 days later; last minute was no problem. The house has a fantastic ocean view and there is a very large brand new deck. The house had everything we needed and it was clean and comfortable. Emerald Isle is the best beach and loviest beach town that i have ever visited. It is far superior to all the Outer Banks towns and I can't wait to go back. When I do, I will book this house again. Thanks, AL!

See dolphins from the house or deck! There is a private walkway from deck to beach over the dunes. The beach lifeguard area is within sight about 700 feet away. Bogue Sound ICW is just 2 blocks away (partial view). The Emerald Isle area has many excellent restaurants, from seafood to steak to vegan. Most deliver or offer take-out so you can bring food home or eat out. The kitchen is fully equipped so you can also cook if you prefer. There is an ocean pier in E.I. a few miles away and they offer fishing 24/7 and have all required gear and bait. You'll see ocean para-sailing and wind-surfers. The area has several excellent public and semi-private golf courses nearby. Emerald Isle has abundant shopping and all required services. Make sure you see Civil War Fort Macon in Atlantic Beach!
