About Angela Hale

We enjoyed Carolina Dawn for many years before deciding to rent it a few years ago. We've filled it with artwork that we love of local beach scenes, mostly by Beaufort Artist Alan Cheek. We've also tried to make it as comfortable and convenient as possible for families.

Angela Hale purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Angela Hale chose Coastal North Carolina

You can't beat the views and the easy access to the beach from our location. Just walk out the back door and down the boardwalk and you're there. Our stretch of beach never seems crowded and there's easy access to shopping, restaurants, entertainment and more.

What makes this cottage unique

We have dogs who are members of our family so we know how nice it can be to bring them along on vacation. That's why we consider requests for responsible dog owners to bring their well behaved dog to Carolina Dawn.

Great space on beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

Roomy house with great ocean views from all 3 floors. Beach is wide and houses are spaced out so you can have lots of space to yourself. Kitchen was well stocked for all our seafood feasts. Gates on the back deck perfect to corral children and still let them outside to play. Really enjoyed our stay!

Our favorite vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time renting Carolina Dawn; this time for eight nights. The weather was beautiful, and beaches were great, even though it was off-season.

My husband, friends and kids caught lots of fish from the surf, and we also took a few side trips to the salt marsh, Beaufort, Morehead City and historic Swansboro.

It is such a joy to stay in a place that has everything covered. We prepared all except one meal, and never lacked any cooking or serving supplies - plenty of pots, pans, utensils and bowls.

Angela is a wonderful and friendly host, and we are already planning our trip for next year!

A 5-star experience

  • 5 of 5

Carolina Dawn is extra nice inside and out. Comfortable inside with all the amenities and very well stocked kitchen. Outside has great decks, deck chairs, and a retractable awning on the main deck was a real plus. Another reason to pick Carolina Dawn is the owners. We booked the week of Hurricane Matthews (ugh!) and everything was thrown into turmoil. The owners worked with us providing constant communication throughout the storm. We and our guest were able to salvage the week and had a great time. Bottom-line, we all loved it and our dog Darby did too!

Great beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at Carolina Dawn. The location and layout could not be more convenient. In our party of 8 everyone had plenty of space and privacy. The decks are amazing. The house is extremely well stocked -- great beach books/games/movies, the kitchen had absolutely everything (even sharp knives), nice appliances, and what seemed to be quality comfortable mattresses. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Wonderful location and beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The house is well-stocked, comfortable and in a very convenient location. We have rented vacation homes and condos for 10+ years, and this was our favorite. Can't wait to go back!

Map

Emerald Isle is 20 Minutes from Morehead City, N.C. It's located on a barrier island considered the southern most stretch of the Outer Banks. It's also part of an island referred to as the Crystal Coast, which offers big stretches of white sand and gorgeous blue green waters. Emerald Isle, in particular, is a very family oriented beach and our home is far enough away from condos that it's never crowded. Bring or rent bikes and enjoy miles of bike paths. The North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores is a short drive which offers all kinds of great kids activities. Drive to Beaufort and see the wild ponies on Shackleford Banks.
