Overview

About the property

4 Bedroom / 2 Bath ('EAST' side of our side-by-side Duplex)

OCEANFRONT HOUSE with HEATED POOL, AMAZING VIEWS & BEST LOCATION!!!

• LARGEST PRIVATE POOL on EMERALD ISLE!!!

Pool measures 44' long x 16' wide. The Pool design has wide, shallow steps/entranceway at both ends which makes it great for children and the elderly. It is 4 feet deep. It also has a floating rope that divides the pool down the middle so that you have your own side for privacy. Our Concrete decking (surrounding the pool) is cool on the feet (unlike TREX Decking that other houses use which is hot).

• NO CHARGE for POOL HEATING: in May/June and Sept/Oct when heat is needed (Saves you over $550!

…because MOST houses in Emerald Isle charge $550 to $600 ‘additional’ for Pool Heating!!! We don’t!!!)

(Pool Heater operable only when the air temperature is above 60 degrees...so the month of April is very

iffy if the pool will be warm enough for swimming. That is why our ‘APRIL’ RATES are comparable to homes 'without' a pool). Pool heating is not at all necessary for the months of July/Aug.

About Don

Our family has been spending summer vacations on the East Coast since the very early 1900's when our Great Grandfather took my Grandfather as a boy down to the barrier Islands off the Eastern seaboard. Sadly, as much as all the older generations LOVED the shore, they were never able to afford to buy a house there. My Grandfather had the opportunity to 'buy' a lot on an Island for $200 in the early 1900's, but in his own words; 'that was too much money' back then...he couldn't afford it...he grew up in the great depression. We need to remind ourselves that we are a very blessed generation to have been able to finally buy a Beach House. It still took a lot of sacrifices and it is not easy, but we know it brings a lot of joy to a lot of people...not just us. We have a young 'special-needs' boy, and there is no greater feeling than watching his face when he is at the Beach! We are sure this will bring many fond memories to your Children... if you can simply put down the cell phone, computer and remote while you are here and just enjoy being with your family at the Ocean!

Don purchased this house in 2001

Why Don chose Coastal North Carolina

Our Father decided that since he was just a few more years away from being about to retire that he wanted to buy a house on the NC Coast and retire there. He visited the entire NC coast looking at real estate and he apparently fell in love with Emerald Isle because he singled it out and focused on the market there. Sadly, two weeks later after making his last trip there, he passed away...at the young age of 54.

In 1993, I decided to buy a Beach house on the Ocean so I started taking trips to every Island and every town up and down the NC Coast. Upon doing so, there was no question that Emerald Isle was by far the prettiest Island in my opinion. It's natural beauty is everywhere you look. It has pristine beaches with very clean, warm water. The Ocean is shallow and great for children. The architecture on the Island is a mix of Sandcastles and small cottages. There is maritime forest with old curvy tall Live Oak tree's. There is fine dining, miles of bike paths, a wide beautiful Sound for boating and so much more.

What makes this house unique

Clean, warm, shallow Ocean water with expansive, pristine white sandy Beaches!!! Pure Nature at it's best!

The Island runs East to West allowing views of both the sunrises and sunsets.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed the beach, so beautiful, it was sunny 85 degrees, water was warm and scenic views for miles. We frolic in the water and relaxed in the sand. We could not have asked for a better day to start our vacation off. Second day was my birthday. We decided to do some shopping in town. We came across some very unique stores. Later that day, we had more time at the beach then off to dinner to celebrate my birthday. We went to Flipperz - awesome time!!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

Great location to shopping, restaurants, etc. The house is very clean has everything needed for a great stay. Beds are comfortable, kitchen very well equipped, and plenty of comfortable deck/pool furniture. Plenty of room inside and out for everyone to relax. The pool and beach are perfect. I have not found any other rental with the owner paying for the heated pool. Have been going to EI for 15+ years and this was the best place yet. It is obviously this house is well taken care of. I would highly recommend this house to anyone traveling to EI. We have already reserved the house for October.

Unexpected Surprises

  • 2 of 5

We've stayed at many VRBO's but this time we were disappointed. The house is in a great location, with a beautiful pool and beach. We liked that there were 2 bedrooms on one floor and two on another so that we could spread out with our stuff. However, when we went upstairs, we found that the towel bar was off the wall in the bathroom, and the toilet paper holder was missing the crosspiece. Later we discovered that the sheets in the upstairs front room were dirty and that the shower trickled. Our downstairs housemates discovered that the air conditioning was not working well, although we were fine upstairs, if you don't mind cold air blowing on your head all night from the overhead vent. The HVAC was finally fixed 3 days later, and a plumber came the day after that to adjust the shower. The final straw was that the coffee pot stopped working mid-week so we had to go out for coffee every day. Did I mention that there was no property manager nearby and the owner was three timezones away? While this place had some real benefits, the lack of attention to maintenance detail would make me look elsewhere the next time I want to stay at Emerald Isle.

An Excellent Experience

  • 5 of 5

We travelled with our two adult children and their families. There were 7 total including our 3.5 year old grandaughter. This house was perfect. Four bedrooms, ample kitchen, dining, and living space - Two bathrooms. The rooms were very clean and pretty with giant closets in each. Really couldn't have asked for better. However.......we got better when.....we stepped out of the living room door and there was an amazing heated and lighted and sparkling giant swimming pool. Beautiful, just beautiful and perfect..... We really couldn't have asked for better..... but still it got even better......just a few steps from the pool a landing with some benches and one more step onto the most beautiful beach ever. It was like we owned our own little section of the beach for our week. Honestly, this place rocked.....We loved it. We were also very happy to have the very responsive owner available for questions and insight. It was a perfect vacation. We loved it. Thank you so much for the use of your perfect place.
