Overview

About the property

Just Steps to the Beach!

"Slice of Life" is a unique and completely renovated duplex/bungalow located on the 3rd row (third house) from the beach. Walk out the door and past two houses to the beach access located at the end of our street. It's about a one minute walk to have sand between your toes.

This 2 bedroom/1 bath bungalow is the north side of a duplex and an ideal getaway for couples and small families. The home is ground level so there are no stairs to climb. This is especially convenient for senior citizens and families with small children. The property was completely refurbished a few years ago. Some of the updates and additions include, new ceramic tile floors throughout, a completely new kitchen and appliances, new bathroom fixtures, including a new and expanded shower, a new central heat/air system, screened doors, an enclosed hot/cold outdoor shower, and a laundry.

***Full week rentals are from Sunday to Sunday.***

THIS IS A NON-SMOKING PROPERTY.

We also own the south side of this duplex (See VRBO Listing #755055).

The property is also 3rd row to the Bogue Sound at the opposite end of the street from the beach. There is a public water access there too and a good place to launch a kayak or just explore the sound.

A recently paved bike and walking path that spans the full length of Emerald Isle runs right beside Slice of Life.

The North Carolina Aquarium is located approximately 7 miles away and the Bogue Inlet Fishing Pier is approximately 5 miles away. In addition there are many other nearby activities. These include: Golf, Kayaking, Fishing, Shopping, Boating, Sightseeing, Miniature Golf, and a Movie Theater, to name a few.

Slice of Life is located in a residential/beach neighborhood. Emerald Isle is a family beach with no large crowds or nearby hotels.

PETS

Small Dogs (2 max/40 lbs. or less) are allowed with pre-approval and a non-refundable pet deposit. The pet deposit is $20 per night (per dog/2-max) for stays of less than a week, not to exceed $100, or $100 for a full week stay. If you are making a reservation, bringing your dog and staying less than a full week, this site will only show the $100 amount, no matter the length of stay. Please send me an email and I can create the correct pet fee amount in the system based on the number of nights you will be staying.

Comfy and close to beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 5-day stay here recently. The house is just as described; clean, comfortable, updated and, most importantly, just steps from the beach. No disappointing surprises. The updated open floor plan is great; feels roomy, not cramped. West (the owner) was very responsive and helpful with questions we had about local restaurants, etc. Beds were comfortable; kitchen well supplied for our needs. And we especially liked the outdoor shower. We found a couple of things that weren't working properly and let West know; they were immediately replaced. That's a responsive owner. We loved our stay and would come back here in a New York minute to enjoy the slow Carolina pace. Thanks, West!

Great Value

This was a cozy place. Must have been recently updated inside. Very neat and well kept. The owner was very easy to work with and communicated regularly. Would highly recommend.

Perfect place for our Anniversary getaway

  • 5 of 5

Slice of Life was the perfect place for my wife and I during our little beach getaway trip. The house was perfectly located with a short walk to the beach and across the road to the sound. After spending a full day on the beach, we would watch the sunset on the sound side. Also, West, the owner, made sure we had everything we needed with excellent communication and follow up. The place was well stocked and completely renovated, so we didn't really anything other than more time. Of course, that's how it always goes! Thanks for everything!

Tidy, Spotless Retro Revival

  • 5 of 5

Slice of Life is the tidiest, cleanest and most efficiently renovated little beach cottage with all the comforts you could ask for plus some you wouldn't have thought of. The beds are comfortable, the spotless kitchen fully equipped and there's a truly livable living room. It could easily accommodate a couple and two kids, and because it is a duplex, it would be super for extended or two families. There is a shared washer/dryer in the back between the units and two outdoor showers are great for beachgoers. And we loved the screened doors!

It is conveniently located within walking disance between the sound and the ocean and brings back memories of old Emerald Isle before the humongous rentals became the standard.

West, the host, has thought of everything you need to know before checking in, and he is quick to respond and most gracious.

The only caveat we could think of was that because the space between the bathroom door and the sink is a bit tight, a larger person might be a bit uncomfortable. But we had to thiink really, really hard to find anything that even approached the negative.

Truly loved staying here. We're sure you will, too.
