About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 12

Spectacular Views, WiFi, Elevator await you at the Carolina Clipper. The gorgeous sandy beach has a very low density with no condos but with great swimming and fishing. Neighborhood beach access is within 50 yards. The main living area has an open floor plan with a bright and sunny eating area. The cottage has wrap-around spacious decks on both levels. The island is narrow in this area and great views of the ocean and sound abound. Take a stroll down the beach road while the kinds ride their bikes in this family beach community. You'll love it.

This was our second time at Emerald Isle the weather was good a lot of rip currents but that is expected. Great location and very quiet area. Had a great time enjoying my adult children and grand daughter.

This house was the best, clean comfortable and so accommodating! The view is spectacular. The kitchen was very well stocked. I feed 11 people Easter Dinner and had all the pots/pans/utensils/dishes, etc. I needed. We will definitely come back to the Carolina Clipper!!!

We really enjoyed our stay. The house was wonderfully equipped with anything you needed. We have stayed at a lot of rental houses but none had the things in the kitchen like this one had. This house was very roomy & clean. We look forward to coming back.

Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

My family loved our vacation and our stay at the Carolina Clipper. The house is well cared for, the kitchen is fully stocked and the beach gear is such a big help!! We live in New York and it was such a space saver not having to bring coolers and chairs and umbrellas in the car! The view is amazing from every part of the deck. We sat on the top deck after dinner and just took it all in. It was just so peaceful. The walk to the beach took two minutes and is a great area to set up for the day. The hammock was a favored spot amongst everyone in my family. We all took several afternoon naps just swaying in the ocean breeze taking breaks from the sun. We had a great week, only rained once for not even an hour. We will be back next year for sure!!

Three generations under one roof

  • 5 of 5

Great beach house, perfect location! We had 11 family members (three generations) for our first ever full week of vacation and we could not ask for a more perfect week. The house had everything we needed, the weather was perfect, the view from the top deck was stunning and a short walk to the beach made it easy with four tiny ones. The Grand-darlings loved playing in the surf, hunting for shells and watching the dolphins. Our only concern was the deck railings, but with seven adults keeping a watchful eye on the toddlers we did not let that keep us off the decks. The hammock was a great place for an afternoon nap. The beach was never crowded, just a few other families so it was like our own private beach. Stores and restaurants were a short drive in either direction. The elevator was a nice bonus. We even got to watch fireworks from the top deck a couple of nights. We are already making plans for next year! Thanks for sharing your lovely beach house with us.

Best family trip together

  • 5 of 5

What a relaxing place to stay! There were eleven of my family members here on vacation. We had a blast, each person relaxing at the beach (a beautiful view & short walk from the house), fishing at the pier, flying kites, eating out/shopping, or going to Ft. Macon. The house comes equipped with WiFi (important to those of us with iPads and laptops), beach chairs, umbrellas, beach toys, and a grill. The kitchen is also well-equipped for those nights you just want to cook/stay in & play cards/games (which we also did). The elevator sold us on the house--my mother-in-law who cannot climb stairs was able to get around as well as the rest of us. Would definitely rent this place again--very affordable compared to other houses this size.
