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.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

Great house in a perfect location, right next to beach access. Well stocked kitchen (pots, pans, dishes and more) with everything we needed. Great views from porches. Will return!

Perfect close to being oceanfront without actually being oceanfront

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at Carolina Clipper 8/20 -8/27/2017. The ocean views from the decks were beautiful. I enjoyed drinking my coffee in the morning on the deck looking at and listening to the ocean. We also enjoyed the hammock . We had everything we needed , It was very clean and

felt like home. The deck on top is secure all the way around ,which was reassuring with a 2 year old running around. The elevator was wonderful to have with an infant and toddler to keep from having to go up and down stairs each time we went to beach or out and about.The beach access is so close and a few steps from the property. Central location to the island. We would definitely stay here again.

Absolutely love this house!! This was our second year staying here!!

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything you could possibly need for a stay at Emerald Isle. The beach is steps away and the views from the decks are amazing. I watched the dolphins swim by almost every day. The naps on the hammock were so peaceful and refreshing. Thank you for another fantastic stay at the Carolina Clipper! We plan on switching it up a little next year but we will definitely book again in the future!!

Carolina Clipper was a great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Location, Owner and Weather were amazing. Tommy went over and above to help make our stay great. We had a family member who is handicapped and Tommy went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. He even contacted the local fire department in Emerald Isle who have Beach Wheelchairs available for us to check out. We were able to pick one up from the Fire station and get our family member on the Beach. The Lift/Elevator worked great for my aging Parents and wheelchair. Finding a place that can accommodate a wheelchair is very difficult and Tommy made sure we were good. The Next time we are in North Carolina we will be sure to stay at the Carolina Clipper. My teen kids loved the hammock and we all enjoyed the nice ocean breezes from the multiple level and wraparound deck.

Thank you Tommy for a wonderful vacation.

Carolina Clipper stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Our 2nd year at the Clipper and I hope many more!! I by chance found this house last year-- me being a huge Tar Heel fan ( so with Carolina in the name-- figured it would be great) Not only great but FANTASTIC!! Last year, a couple from Florida joined us, and the wife had recently had a knee operation-- and the elevator was a blessing!! This year her husband had congestive heart failure and the elevator was a God's send for EMS!! The view of the ocean from the 3rd deck is spectacular !! With wrap around decks on both the 2nd floor (where the bedrooms are) and the 3rd deck (where the large living room and kitchen are located) the floor plan is perfect!! I personally enjoyed the bikes this year-- upgraded from our stay in 2016 to the hammock on the 2nd deck-- I fell asleep many days while reading a book and listening to the ocean!! I would like to see larger TV screens in the bedrooms--where they are very small as well as a larger one in the LR-- (for the large room-- a bigger screen would go over very well). But overall all-- FANTASTIC!!
