About JUDY Kipfer

My husband is from a small community in Michigan and i am from rural North Carolina. He says we are 'country grunts.' That sums us up nicely....friendly, hard workers and love it.

JUDY Kipfer purchased this house in 2003

Why JUDY Kipfer chose Emerald Isle

Emerald Isle seems to be one of the last areas that is not totally commercialized. No high rise hotels, no fast food on the island. we still have a shanty here and there. That's just really cool to me.

What makes this house unique

My husband and I repair, replace, update things as necessary at the beach. The elements are so brutal on the oceanfront beach houses. He's the best handyman ever. We love doing projects together. well actually i love dreaming up the projects and he makes it happen. The name of our beach place is Wind Drift East but my husband calls it 'Maintenance H*ll!' We look up ocassionally and see dolphin swim by as well as sea gulls diving for fish. That's the best benefit. Well, my husband also likes to watch the cool swimsuits go by...

Awesome week at the beach

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Emerald Island for years but this house was by far the best, it had everything you could possibly need and more . We had the pleasure of meeting the owner Judy ( nice to put a face to the name :) and within minutes it felt like I had known her for years . I highly recommend staying here and give it a 5 star . I've already reserved a week for next year .

A Chunk of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had such an AMAZING time. The owner Judy is WONDERFUL to deal with. The home is spectacular, amenities are great, and is decorated beautifully. Having a deck off of the bedrooms was a luxury. We spent everyday at the beach, and also took a quick ride to Beaufort for the ferries for the sand dollar and wild horse tour.

The weather was amazing and we enjoyed the ocean and relaxing on the beach. Kids had a fantastic time and already begging to go back. This was our first trip to Emerald Isle, but not our last. We have already booked our trip for next year with Judy! We now consider this our home away from home!!

Highly recommend!!!! Thank you Judy!

Old friends

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place to enjoy friends and the beach! We had 3 couples, and each person has plenty of personal space and space to interact both inside and out. The kitchen has everything anyone could need, the house is beautifully decorated, and there is minimal cleanup to do before leaving since a maid service is included in the price. This was our second stay at this unit and it will probably not be our last.

Spring Break 2017

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Emerald Isle. We had 8-10 family and friends there during our stay. Judy did not miss a detail in this duplex. We had plenty of areas to have family time and quiet time. We spent our days on the beach and exploring the local areas. The kitchen was ampley stocked. We grilled out most evenings. Our kids loved bike riding and hanging out in their Eno's when taking a break from the beach. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Great late Spring get away

  • 5 of 5

Another great week at the beach in Emerald Isle ,NC.. This was my family's second stay at Wind Drift East .

We were so pleased with our VRBO selection last year , we wanted to come back. We love the unit . Very

comfortable beds, kitchens equipped with everything you need. We had 3 couples, plenty of space for family time as well as sufficient room to each have some quiet time. Judy was very responsive and a pleasure to work with. Looking forward to next stay at Wind Drift East. Joe M.

Happy Holidays- Wind Drift East Style

  • 5 of 5

We spent a memorable Christmas week at Wind Drift East!

Judy was a pleasure to work with. She's kind, attentive and a wealth of information about the area. Her responsiveness is unsurpassed!

Our party consisted of extended family and our 3 teenagers (8 people total). With an extremely well-appointed kitchen, we were able to make Christmas dinner, bake biscotti and have meals readily available for our ever hungry group.

The space and amenities are endless. With extended family and bedrooms on 3 floors, everyone had their own sleeping areas and bathrooms. Never once (even on the one rainy day) did we feel cramped at the home. We were beyond pleased with the state of the home upon arrival. Incredibly clean and tidy, with all things in their place. Judy and the housekeeping team take pride in the work and it shows!

Judy and Mike also take pride in the maintenance and amenities of the home . (I'm especially fond of the high end washer and dryer)

The proximity to the sand via the walkway is stellar. It was easy to grab coffee and sit out on the walkway stairs or sitting area just a few feet from the beach.

There was ample parking for 3-4 cars, enough trash receptacles for the loads of wrapping paper from Christmas morning, and an abundance of dishes, flatware and glasses/cups. We were absolutely impressed with the abundance of kitchen tools and accouterments.

Linens were plush and comfortable, with extra blankets and pillows easy accessible. TV's in every bedroom made for little bickering among the children! (that made for very happy parents too)

As for location, it's situated a stone's throw from Dollar General and Flip Flops, perfect for quick fill in trips and WHOOPS- I forgot batteries!

The kids spent time fishing and hoverboarding around and thoroughly enjoyed the week!

I HIGHLY recommend staying at Wind Drift East. 5 stars isn't enough!

The wonderful, personal experience with Judy and booking is just a taste of the fantastic stay you will have at this property!

Emerald Isle has great restaurants on the water - check them out. In the opposite direction is Salter Path and Atlantic Beach just 10 - 15 minutes away, then Morehead City just 20 minutes away with great restaurants on the water, big boats/ships as Morehead City waterfront is a international import/export dock, fishermen to watch, beautiful old homes, lots of sea gulls

The North Carolina Acquarium is just ten minutes away going toward Atlantic Beach. There are charter fishing boats for deep sea fishing, and surf fishing.
