Newly Renovated Secluded House in Heart of Emerald Isle Ocean View & Heated Pool

Vacation home in Emerald Isle with kitchen

The White House of Emerald Isle is nestled high atop the live oak trees offering privacy and ocean views all while being located in the heart of town.

Guests can enjoy a short walk (less than 5 minutes) through a beautiful deeded walkway surrounded by live oaks that leads straight to the newly renovated Ocean Forest beach access which includes an outdoor shower.

Walk to some of Emerald Isle’s best shops and restaurants in just minutes!

Our family built this home atop one of the highest sandy knolls in Emerald Isle in 1988 and rented out the Jimmy Buffet themed getaway to many Crystal Coast goers over the years. In 2020 we gave the old “5 O’Clock Somewhere” a complete renovation and renamed the house “The White House.”

The White House of Emerald Isle now offers a freshly painted interior and exterior, a new metal roof, new decks, freshly installed tile and carpet, newly built cabinets, new light and sink/tub fixtures throughout, new appliances, new beds/mattresses and a private swimming pool.

*First Floor: Entryway and “bonus room” with twin bunk beds & full bath

*Second Floor: 1 bedroom with queen bed and connecting full bath. 2 additional bedrooms with a queen bed in each and access to the same full bath through a hallway access. All 3 bedrooms on this floor have private access to outdoor deck.

*Third Floor: Master bedroom with bathroom and stand up shower, private access to deck. Open concept kitchen, dining and living area with access to top floor deck. This floor enjoys views of the ocean and the Bogue Inlet Fishing Pier.

Saturday to Saturday bookings only during the summer months please.

ATTN Spring, Fall & Winter Renters: With notice, we can turn on pool heater. Pool temperature heats up about 1 degree per hour so during cold months we need a heads up to get pool to comfortable temperature before your stay.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful time at Emerald Isle
The White House is an immaculate property that is conveniently located near the beach and local shops. We had a relaxing time and especially enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and using the new grill. The pool is also a real plus and is heated enough to be able to enjoy night swims. The property is secluded and has a good view of the ocean. Overall we had a wonderful time as Emerald Isle is a very special place for us.

Very Clean and Accommodating
My family appreciated Emerald Isle and the beach house complimented our stay for a much needed home away from home feeling. The home was exceptionally clean and had resources and refferences to support our week long stay. I would stay at this property again and hope that guest continue to respect the property post pur stay so we can come back amd enjoy. Thanks Erin!
