The home was constructed in 2006 and has been regularly colored and well maintained.

The home is located at the crest of a dune, so it is elevated above the surroundings. The generous lot contains multiple mature trees and landscaping, including six new palm trees that were installed in the summer of 2017. The sizable lot, open area on the ground floor below the home and natural setting give an just right area for children to play or adults to appreciate the natural surroundings. Finest of all, a heated in ground pool provides never-ending appreciation for the whole family and true three season appreciation. Pool toys such as noodles, floats, and a b-ball hoop are supplied with the rental. A well maintained outdoor shower provides a place to cool off after a day at the beach.

The second and third level of the home contain decks with rocking chairs that surround three sides of the home including expansive vistas for sunrise, sunsets, the sea, pool, sound and the natural tree areas that earn Emerald Isle it's name.

The third, top level of the home contains an open floor plan for the kitchen, dining room, and living room. There is also a half-bath, a table for games and puzzles, a "rent nook" with sound vistas, and the master bedroom/bathroom. The kitchen has modern stainless steel appliances, stone countertops, and a well organized and completely appointed set of appliances and preparing silverware. The kitchen opens to an island with three stools and extends to the dining area (table with seating for eight) and the living area with comfortable couches and chairs. The master bedroom includes a king bed with a separate full bath including a Jacuzzi tub. Puzzles, games and cards with poker chips are located in the living room and game table area. Worried about lugging groceries and bags up three flights of stairs? Fear not! The home has a entirely functioning and well maintained elevator with access to all three floors, capable of hauling nearly 1000 lbs of people and gear at a time.

The second level contains another four bedrooms, two full baths and one half bathroom. Bedroom #2 has a king bed, bedroom #3 a queen, bedroom #4 has the bunk beds with a trundle and bedroom #5 has two twin beds. All bedrooms include closets and drawer storage. Bedroom #2 and 3 have sliding door access to the decks on the sea side and there is also an access to the outdoor space on the pool side through the half bath. All bedrooms include full cable TVs and the whole home is supplied with WiFi. A laundry closet with modern washer/dryer are also located on this level.

Just off the entryway is an outdoor picnic table adjacent to the camper style charcoal grille. As mentioned earlier, the wide open space under the 3000+SF home provides plenty of room for play and to store beach toys and chairs. The home comes supplied with plenty of sand castle toys and four beach chairs.

We bought Sea and Sound in April of 2017. We could not have been happier with this home. We use the home ourselves as much as possible and will only sparingly rent in order to maximize our ability to use it and to minimize wear and tear. Our goal is to keep the home well maintained and ideal for family friendly gatherings. We hope that you savor the home as much as we do!

  • Management companies and individual home owners commonly offer clients an opportunity to buy trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which usually will cost you somewhere between 1% - 5% of the base term rate, offers vacationers reimbursement of their trip costs for any nights missed resulting from personal medical related emergencies or hurricanes, in addition to ensuing extra hurricane evacuation costs or expenses, such as an unplanned motel stay or extra gasoline. Trip insurance is definitely a bank account-saver if the unforseen occurs .

Start Your Search Early

A lot of families decide to begin their search over Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year holiday gatherings.

Find your Area and Determine Dates

Consensus can often be complicated between family members, but once this difficult part is finished everything will begin to slide in place.

How Many Bedrooms?

Determine who is going, and just how many/what kind of bedroom arrangement you should have. Keep in mind that a lot of properties list maximum guest capacity, which often includes sofa beds in the home's living room. You will need to figure out what is most appropriate for the company. Most rental listings will describe each one of the unit's specific bedrooms and beds.

Stick to a Budget

Make certain "Perfect For Relaxation And Fun At The Beach!" suits your price range *during your desired dates*. Be sure to get cost-sharing commitments from friends and family prior to reserving a pricey rental property. One member of your group will need to be given the task of collecting contributions and accepting responsibility for the entire rental cost at time of reservation.

Compose a list of "Wishes" and "Needs"

What amenities is the group searching for? Do you just want a vacation rental with a swimming pool, hot tub or beach volleyball court? Do you desire to be far from the crowds, or near civilization? Are items like beach chairs, grills, beach umbrellas, beach carts or coolers available and included in your rental home charge? Make a list of priority amenities to guide filter your search.

Accessibility and Special Issues to consider

Do individual people in your group have specialized needs? If wheel chair accessibility, elevators, pool lifts or other specialized equipment is necessary, include that into your search. Almost all vacation home postings will include a list of amenities.

Think About 4-Legged Family Members?

Make sure you include your furrry friends. Pets are welcome at many rentals, but policies can vary. A number of constraints may dismiss a potential vacation property.
