Welcome to "Finest Life". See our 100+ five star reviews on Vacation Rental By Owner over 10 years. Most of our bookings are return guests - that tells you everything you need to know. This is a very clean, well maintained and completely furnished OCEAN FRONT home - not a condo - in impressive Emerald Isle, NC. It has a full-on ocean view from the deck, 2 bedrooms and living room, not partial vistas and not over the street or rooftops. It is half of a duplex. The other side of the duplex is not a rental; it is someone's rarely used second home, so you will not have any crazy or noisy neighbors, events or big groups next door. The kitchen was completely remodeled in early 2023; see new photos! You''re likely to see dolphins frolicking in the ocean. Unlike staying in a condo complex, you'll have privacy and no worries about noise, sharing the deck or annoying neighbors. No dogs. Ideal for families with kids. The home is close to a lifeguard station on the beach. The lifeguards are on duty every day from April until September.
There is a gentle set of stairs from deck to beach, not the 50 or 60 steps to get to the homes that sit high up on the dunes. The home has everything you'll need and the kitchen is entirely equipped (even spare appliances such as blender, coffee maker & toaster). There is a Kuerig coffee machine with pot and pod capability. We provide starter supplies upon your arrival (soap, paper towels, t.p.). ALL of the linens in the home is premium gel memory foam 12" beds and new frames that are less than 3 years old. (Oh, so comfortable!) All beds have thick zippered bed-sacks too. Living room couch and appreciate-seat were new in 2022. New king bed 2022 as well.
This home is an striking value and has everything you'll need for a restful anxiety-complimentary vacation at the beach. The manager is local and the owner is always available. An all-new bigger deck is just a few years old. Note the constructed-in benches on the deck near the ocean. Both bathrooms were refreshed in early 2023 as well. Tub and shower are pretty tile - not cheap fibreglass! All the doors were newly replaced. The street side windows were all replaced in 2022. As you can see from all of our photos, we strive to make this a cozy and gorgeously 'beachy' home. Among the features of this property are Spectrum cable, STRONG wireless internet (to the deck +), new central air unit (2021), ceiling fans in every room, 3 flat-screen HD-TV's (55" in living room), and bespoke hand-painted tropical murals in each bedroom. It's NOT cheap thin, uncomfortable rattan / boxy / IKEA furnishings, nor is it used furnishings from Grandma's home. We want you to relax and be comfortable! Telephone owner AL directly at nine seven three four seven six eight one nine one with any questions.

There are 2 ocean-front master bedrooms (1 K & 1 Q) and 2 bedrooms street side (partial Sound view) with doubles and singles. There are 2 full tiled baths (1 tub/shower main floor and 1 shower only on the upper floor) and a excellent outdoor enclosed over-sized locking private shower with hot and cold water and a dressing area. (The outside shower is particularly great for kids or a fast invigorating rinse after coming off the beach.) The deck has a convenient hose for sandy feet.

Recent (within the past few years) upgrades include complete new kitchen (early 2023), new beds, new laminate floor throughout the main level, bigger deck, modernized bathrooms, new living room furnishings, new TV's, newer roof, all new interior doors, windows, digital entrance lock, and many smaller changes as well. The a/c unit was replaced in 2021. The driveway and landscaping were upgraded in 2021. The electrical panel and service for the home was replaced in 2021. We are constantly upgrading! There are hurricane shutters on all the windows, including alluring coral color Bahama type shutters on the street side windows.

There are lifeguards on the beach within sight just a short walk away (April - Sept.). This home is ON THE BEACH with the same ocean, vistas, and ease of access as the mansions that cost 3 or 4 times as much. Wouldn't it be nice not to have to drag all your stuff to the beach from a block or more away? There is a humongous difference between OCEAN-FRONT and 1 or 2 or 3 homes in from the beach. No carts or wagons needed. No going down the block to a public access entrance. Need a drink or suntan lotion while you're at the beach? Just walk up onto the deck and get it! Maybe leave additional beverages or your kids's toys on the deck walkway for instant access. We savor your inquiry and thank you for your time and for considering "Best Life"! E-mail or call if you have any questions or need any additional information. Best wishes for a great Emerald Isle vacation!

Finding the best Crystal Coast rental home experience:

Cost saving strategies:

  • The sooner your group can book a rental home, the better your selection will be. The most desirable vacation rentals are booked very early. Reserving your rental property six to twelve months before your travel dates is recommended. Christmas, Thanksgiving and New Years Eve are excellent times to plan and book your rental property.
  • Summer time is high season in Emerald Isle. Booking your vacation rental in the Spring or Fall is a good way to save on your vacation home. Rental rates are lower, and you'll find a larger selection of desirable properties. Many vacationers use this strategy to reserve larger homes, or to reserve a beach front rental that would otherwise be unavailable or unaffordable during the high season. Speaking of the off-season, don't overlook the holidays for a Crystal Coast vacation! Who wouldn't love a holiday on the coast? Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years are great times to gather with loved ones at the beach.
  • Some hosts and property managers offer special rates for veterans and active duty military. Remember to ask your host or property manager if special offers are available for your family.
  • Property management companies frequently offer renters an option to add trip insurance protection. Trip insurance, which generally costs anywhere between 1% - 5% of the reservation price, offers visitors reimbursement of costs for missed trip time as a result of medical-related catastrophes or weather, as well as ensuing additional hurricane evacuation costs or charges, such as an unexpected hotel or additional fuel expenses. Trip insurance can be a a life-saver if the unforeseen happens. Ask your property manager for more information.
  • Look for your local Crystal Coast area magazine when you check-in. If your rental doesn't have a copy, you can find them at local shops and visitor centers. In addition to great information, visitor guides have coupons for nearby restaurants, attractions, and tours.

How to select the perfect vacation rental:

  • Choose your vacation week and maximum budget.
  • Note the number bedrooms and the configuration you need. Ocean-front 4-bed house @ condo cost. Step off deck to beach. Brand new kitchen! has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
  • Precise descriptions of bedrooms and bed counts & types is generally available online. If not, email or call the property owner before you book the property. Remember that most listings specify the maximum guest capacity, which oftentimes includes pull-out couches. You'll need to establish what is best for your vacation group.
  • Are you bringing the family pet? Many vacation homes allow animals, but guidelines and restrictions apply. Allowable pet type, breed, and size are often limited. Ask your host before booking, and study your agreement! Additional pet fees or might be applied to your invoice.
  • If there's an individual Crystal Coast attraction you love, look for properties that are either close by, or those that cater to your requirements.
  • Suitable accessibility amenities can make or ruin a vacation for guests with disabilities. Remember to confirm all necessary amenities are included before reserving a rental

Tips for your stay:

  • Review check in & check out procedures before traveling. Take a printed copy, and save the directions to your phone.
  • Ask questions. You may need instructions for a garage door opener, intercom or washer/dryer. Contact your host. They are there to help! A brief text message can prevent many concerns.
  • Protect the rental owner (and your things!) by locking the property when you are gone, just like you would at home.
  • During arrival, make note of any issues with the rental property and immediately alert the host. Keep records of all correspondence just in case a dispute arises.
  • Be respectful. Often, adjacent homes are occupied by permanent residents. Respecting quiet hours and parking regulations reduces conflict and allows everyone to enjoy their day.
  • Don't forget to... Ask a local! Locals can often help you find the best spots in town. Who better to ask where to grab the best tacos, have a great night on the town, or the best spots for BBQ?
  • Double-check every room of the rental property to confirm that you've packed everything on check-out day. Make sure to check bathrooms, dressers, and closets for hidden items. Clean out the refrigerator and take or dispose of leftovers.
  • Record a video to document the condition of the property.
  • Did your group have a fantastic time? Many rental websites make it easy for customers to provide feedback. If your rental property and/or property manager was fantastic, they always love to hear your praise. If anything was out of order and they failed to fix it in a reasonable manner, or if the vacation rental wasn't as described, you'll want to make a note as part of your feedback.
