We are pleased to host you in our cozy oceanfront home, Sea Star. Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, a fun gathering place for the family, or an exciting fishing destination, Sea Star is the place to be! This lovely sea cottage features two sides separated by an open-air breezeway, so you can vacation with your large family, yet still enjoy moments of privacy.
Each side sleeps 9 guests in 4 spacious bedrooms, and each side has two full baths, one downstairs and one upstairs. Kitchens have full amenities, and the quaint furnishings & breezy colors bring the essence of the seashore inside! 3 large flat-screen TVs per side with DirecTV and Wifi.
In addition to being just steps from the surf, Sea Star boasts million-dollar views from both deck-levels. You will enjoy hours of relaxation in the shade on the expansive decks below, and the upstairs king bedrooms offer sliding glass doors with unmatched vistas of the sparkling sands and crystal water. Sip a glass of wine from the upper deck as the sun sets, then create a masterpiece in the kitchen - with freshly-caught local seafood, of course!
This listing is for Sea Star whole house. If you need accommodations for 9 or fewer people, please look for Sea Star East (listing #259) or Sea Star West (listing #260).

Sea Star is just minutes from the center of town. Emerald Isle is a quaint, friendly beach village with lots of nice restaurants, watersports rentals and lessons, night-life, and the best local seafood (if you don't catch your own, visit Captain Willis Seafood - great, fresh quality). Emerald Isle public boat launch is just 2 miles from Sea Star - modern, well-laid out with lots of free parking, and an easy boat-ride to Bogue Inlet and the ocean.
There are plenty of local attractions, if you can tear yourself away from the beach, that is! For rainy days, The North Carolina Aquarium is just a few miles away, and is really a great experience for children AND adults. A little further is Beaufort, NC. Visit the exquisite Maritime Museum, drive down the lovely waterfront street, and be sure and stroll through the Old Burying Ground (grab a brochure to learn the fascinating backgrounds of certain "residents," including the Girl in the Rum Barrel). Fort Macon State Park is also a nice visit, down past Atlantic Beach.
If you want to stay closer to Emerald Isle, but still explore the area, visit historic Swansboro, just a few miles away on the mainland. Main Street has lots of lovely shops in old buildings right on the waterfront. For breakfast, grab infamous apple fritters at Yana's (if you can get in), and enjoy a waterfront lunch at Saltwater Grille.
There is so much to do in Emerald Isle and in the surrounding area, you will never be bored. But the beach is so amazing, your exploration may have to wait for future visits...
Linens are not included. Guests usually bring their own; however, they also may be rented locally from Island Essentials for a reasonable fee.

This is a fantastic property. We rented both sides for an extended family vacation and everyone had a great time. The property is ideally located on the ocean side of Emerald Isle with your own private stairway to the beach. The property is clean, well maintained, with very comfortable beds and nicely appointed rooms. The upstairs oceanside bedrooms have a balcony with a spectacle view of the beach and ocean. The owner is readily available and helpful and will promptly reply to any of your questions. We will definitely be back to stay at this property again.

Awesome Awesome Awesome from the very start great communication from owner, to watching the dolphins playing in the surf while drinking coffee on the deck. Would recommend to anyone!!!

As a beach property it could have used an enclosed outdoor shower, and it would have been nice during our very rainy week to have had the covered deck to have been waterproof. But overall we all enjoyed our stay and I would recommend renting both sides for a family vacation.

The house was neat and clean. Very comfortable. The AC had a problem on the East Side however the owner was right on top getting the problem fixed. The location and the oceanfront view is spectacular. Would rent this house again without hesitation.

We rented both sides for our family reunion in July 2018. Sea Star was perfect for this. Very clean and easy. King rooms were amazing, opening up to a fabulous deck from which we could see way down the beach and super star gazing at night. Decks were spacious and well equipped with sturdy wooden deck chairs. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need to prepare all meals, nice size refrigerator and a top freezer that worked like a top. Awesome feature was the ease of access to both beach and the house. The number of overall steps were the fewest we have ever encountered in our years of beach house renting. This made it particularly appealing as we could walk right out of the Livingroom onto deck and down to the beach with very few stairs. Keyless entry was a big bonus, no need to drive to the rental company to get or take keys back.Beds were comfortable with extra pillows and blankets. The décor was very nice!! No pantry. Helen was a dream to work with, always answered right away when we were in the planning stages. We will rent here again for certain if it is available. OH...also a Loggerhead turtle came up on the beach one night while we were there and laid her eggs, very exciting. This is by far, the best rental fit for our large family we have ever rented and this was our 8th time doing this reunion!
