House | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 11
Beautiful ocean and sound views abound from our third row, three-story gorgeous beach home. A landscaped yard, outdoor sports, and 14'x24' pool make our house a dream for families and couples alike. With the beach only a minute walk away, you will enjoy uncrowded swimming, shelling, walking, and relaxing on the gorgeous sand beaches. This beautifully-appointed five bedroom, 3 1/2 bath home was renovated in 2011 and offers a top level with an open floor plan with a chef's kitchen, granite countertops, beautiful furnishings, and panoramic ocean and sound views! The living room provides generous seating and a HDTV/DVR/DVD player, Bose Ipod player, and new carpeting. You will be awed by the wonderful sunset views in the dining room (separate seating is available at the island bar), and the gourmet kitchen is stocked with a wide array of cooking utensils, appliances, spices, and cookware. There is also a half bath on the top level with new tile and granite. Enjoy the scenery from the outdoor decks on the second and third levels, relaxing on rocking chairs, dining at the outside table, or soaking up the sun on the cushioned lounge chairs. Four brightly decorated bedrooms are on the second level and two full baths with granite countertops (one with a shower/bathtub and the other with a walk-in shower with seat.) The first bedroom has a queen bed, cable TV, and a sliding door out to the porch deck. The second bedroom has a queen bed, HDTV, VCR, a separate entrance to a shared bathroom, and a sliding door to the porch deck.

An outdoor ping pong table provides an opportunity for fun and games. The landscaped outdoor pool area is completely fenced in with a gate lock to ensure child safety and offers a dining table with swivel rockers and two lounge chairs. The pool has steps, a seating area in the deeper end, and a pool basketball hoop. A public sound access is two blocks down from our home, offering great opportunities to kayak, clam, crab, and explore the sound ecosystem.

While we haven't rented our home over the past few years, renters previous to that have said the following:
"We want to thank you for a most wonderful vacation...your home served as a wonderful gathering place for our family...everything was perfect...the house was everything you described on your website...my parents especially enjoyed their private "bungalow" and my father enjoyed the fishing...right off the shoreline we caught Spanish mackerel, flounder, spots, and mullet...what a feast we had eating our catch of the day!!!"
"The beach house is lovely and helped to make our vacation spectacular -- we actually commented through the week that it was too nice and appointed for renters! The weather cooperated, the beach access so convenient, and Emerald Isle is a welcome site after many years!"
