Amazing Sound Front Cottage with Private Gazebo Pier and In-Ground Pool in Emerald Isle!

This beautiful sound-front Emerald Isle cottage comes with all of the amenities, including a private pier and new in-ground pool. This cottage is essentially 2 homes in one. The upstairs cottage has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The beautiful downstairs apartment has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. This house can be rented all together or as two separate vacation homes. The large backyard is excellent for weddings, grilling, and having the whole family together for a wonderful time. Enjoy the pier and get a great tan, play in the water, or catch some fresh fish.

If you want to go beach-combing, take a walk in the sunset, or catch the next best wave, it’s only a short walk to the beach (approximately 5 minutes). Inside, enjoy all of the comforts of home with a nicely appointed kitchen, 5 bedrooms, excellent living area, and tremendous views of Bogue Sound! Relax in the living room or on the soft plush couches in the sunroom while enjoying the sounds, smell, and views on the Maritime Coast.

This wonderful Carolina beach home is a gem to behold.

Upstairs cottage and the downstairs apartment can be rented separately off-season.

There is also a wonderful new 16-mile walking and biking path in Emerald Isle. Ask us for details!

Happy Guests:

We stayed at this property for a week. It was a wonderful vacation for a multitude of reasons. Joyce and her staff are top notch! If anything came up, they were on it super promptly and very polite to deal with. The property itself is decorated very nicely (beachy vibe). Upstairs was guest friendly and laid out well. There was a game closet and a decent sized pantry to store all of your food. The downstairs unit is perfect for anyone (like grandparents) who would like a little bit more separation/solitude. (The stairs to get from one level to the next are outside, which was no issue since the weather was good.) This worked out well for my parents who wanted to go to bed early and not hang during late game nights. The downstairs was a little bit damp/musty, but the staff came over and hung up some little moisture collectors and it did the trick. The grounds are amazing! The pool couldn't have been nicer, perfect for kids and adults alike. Shallow on one end and had a built-in bench seat in the deeper end. It seemed bigger than the online pictures. Lots of available seating poolside and table with umbrella. The dock was great and we had fun trying to catch crabs. We took our paddle boards and kayaks and it was perfect for heading out first thing to get some tranquility and exercise in. Being right on the sound made for easy in/out access. I would recommend water shoes, as there was an occasional shell on the bottom of the sound side. The beach access is no more than a 3-5 minute walk. It was super easy and we did it with our group and small kids daily. The beach was never crowded and there was a tidal pool one day. It was so fun to play in the shallow water, our kids loved it! This location can't be beat as the ocean is super close by, it's directly on the sound and has a fabulous pool. We headed into Beaufort (one of our favorite towns) for a few evenings and saw the big boats coming in, shopped the quaint shops and had great meals. Check out The Beaufort Grocery Co, Aqua and The Spouter Inn. While at the Spouter Inn, pop your head into their bakery in the front and grab an apple turnover for breakfast the next morning. Amazing! I don't think we could find a better spot for our next vacation in Emerald Isle if we tried, I highly recommend this property and staff!

We stayed this past weeked at Sounds Great and it couldn't have been more perfect. From the the fishing on the dock our families couldn't have had a better time. The sunsets every night were incredible. Everything was just as promised and Joyce was a pleasure to work with. There is no doubt we will be back here soon.

My family and I had a wonderful vacation at Emerald Isle in July. The Coral Cottage was lovely and our stay was perfect. We had 16 guests and everyone had plenty of room. It was like a home away from home. It was a joy talking with Mrs. Joyce and booking through PDL was a breeze. We plan to visit again in the future.

We enjoyed our stay at Emerald Isle. The See Turtle Cottage was absolutely ideal for us. Loved the location. PDL and Joyce were the best! It is always a plus to have the bed linens and towels furnished! Pups and humans enjoyed time on the deck and the beach.
Diana Overcash happy client
What a beautiful home! We stayed at their “Blue Sapphire” property and it was perfect! From a private pool, to gorgeous views, to a pool table and games to keep everyone entertained, to a beautiful kitchen with every appliance that you would need...we had an awesome vacation stay! Mrs.Joyce also was a pleasure to work with. We look forward to returning again in the future!
