Make Your Crystal Coast Vacation Exceptional With an Emerald Isle Rental House

The non-commercialized nature of Emerald Isle and its family-friendly ambiance make it a desirable destination for your next getaway, and you can rent an Emerald Isle vacation house to make yourself at home. There are both smaller and larger vacation homes available for rent, making it easy for you to find the right option for your budget. Many are located right on the coast of this narrow island, and others have canal or sound frontage, so you're sure to enjoy a relaxing and picturesque vacation.

Outdoor Recreation

The best way to enjoy the beach while in Emerald Isle is right from your home. There are many miles of shoreline along the coast, and there are dozens of Emerald Isle rental houses available for you to choose from. You can also travel a short distance away to enjoy the beach at Indian Beach, Atlantic Beach, Pine Knoll Shores and Hammocks Beach State Park. With a boat or a boat rental, you can also reach numerous small islands that are located throughout the area, giving you a convenient way to enjoy the day on a private island while on vacation. Kite surfing, bike rentals, paddle boarding, surfing and a host of other outdoor activities are available in the local area.

Dining

There is a grocery store on the island where you can pick up foods to prepare back in your North Carolina beach house, but you may also want to savor some meals away from the house from time to time. There are some truly delicious restaurants in the community that boast great ambiance and some menu options made from local ingredients. Some of the dining options available to you include Rucker Johns, ChowdaHeads, Jordan's House of Seafood, Kathryn's Bistro & Martini Bar and others.

Attractions

While the beach is the main draw for visitors to Emerald Isle, there are other attractions and activities that you can enjoy while in the area that will add to your great experience on vacation on the Crystal Coast. You can head to Bogue Inlet Fishing Pier to try your skills, or you can head out onto the open water with a deep sea fishing excursion from Emerald Isle Adventures. The Water Boggan is always popular with families, providing you with affordable fun close to your rental house. Another fun option to consider is Emerald Forest Golf, a mini golf course with a whimsical ambiance.

Weather

Emerald Isle is a community that has a humid subtropical climate, and this means that you can enjoy warm, humid summers with cool winters. The best time of year to head to the beach is during the summer season when the average high temperature is the 80s to 90s. Spring and fall months can be pleasant, and there may even be some warmer days during the winter season. The average high temperature during the winter months ranges from the 50s to the 60s, and the area does receive some snowfall during the peak winter months.

How to Get There

One of the charms associated with visiting Emerald Isle is that it is removed from hustle and bustle of the big city, but it actually is located only a short drive from Wilmington. You can fly into the Wilmington airport, or you can travel via Interstate 40, Highway 421, Highway 74 or Highway 17 to reach Wilmington. From Wilmington, travel northeast on Highway 17 to Jacksonville. Then, take Highway 24 east to Highway 58. Highway 58 takes you across the sound to the island.

The house was exactly as described online. Great open floor plan, still maintaining plenty of privacy in the bedrooms. Brightly decorated, really setting a relaxed beach mood as you walked in to unpack. The home is second row, a very easy walk to the beach access. The location is great, the beach was never crowded, the water was perfect temperature, a wonderful sandbar that allowed even the youngest to walk quite a distance out into the ocean. Two families stayed in the house, it never felt crowded. We spent most of our day outside. We loved having a pool right in the backyard. It was a wonderful break from the ocean. The kids especially loved the pool. The deck was peaceful, I really enjoyed the view of the ocean in the morning before everyone was up and moving. The kitchen was stocked well with cooking supplies, a gas grill on the deck overlooking the pool which we used often. Plenty of outdoor seating and table umbrellas. It really was a wonderful set up. We would have loved to stay for more than a week. Joyce Jones was available via phone and email, with stunning response time. The home was very clean when we arrived. I highly recommend booking a week (or two).

What an amazing place! The home is right on the beach. You have your own walkway down to the beach as well as a large back deck to sit on and watch the waves crash or the sun go down. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious. The rec room downstairs is great for kids and adults. There is a convenient outdoor shower that was especially helfpul to wash the sand off before entering the house from the beach. The beds are comfortable. The front master has a sliding door that can be opened onto a patio. I loved hearing the ocean from the comfort of Cassmir East. The house was very clean and the neighborhood was safe. Take a walk around and see the pons with masses of turtles! Any questions or needs were a phone call away. I highly recommend Vassmir Easy for your next beach vacation.

We come to Emerald Isle almost every summer. Overall, this was a nice beach house. It has a perfect location close to a beach access. The four bedrooms upstairs are very nice. The bedroom downstairs was a little dark, and we didn't realize it was detached from the rest of the house. The only way to access the downstairs is from outside. It was okay for our guests because our group consisted of all adults. The outside deck was nice for relaxing, and we loved using the provided bikes! It was a nice relaxing week!!!
