Welcome! You’re on beach time at The Chatty Dolphin!
Rest, recharge, and relax. We’re all about having fun in a casual beach ambiance and hope our home away from home provides this for you too!
A private hot tub overlooks the wooded backyard, gazing up into the tree canopy. Turn on the jets, changing color lights and waterfall and take in the ample sounds of nature. For added ambience, string lights adorning the sky can be turned on as well, and LED tiki torches come on each nighttime.
A new outdoor shower makes post beach clean-up of your family (including the four-legged ones) a breeze with hot and cold water, along with a close by hose for cleaning up beach gear.
With the addition of a cedar outdoor dining table and seating for six adjacent to the pizza oven. The wood fired pizza oven is a fun and exceptional way to make dining an experience without ever going out. Dough, sauce and cheese to get started with are included along with all the tools and some books for how to get started and fun recipe ideas. Also great for baking bread, cedar planked salmon, pizookie cookies, cobbler, cast iron cinnamon rolls and more! YUM!
Winding down? Appreciate hot cocoa and cider supplied while roasting S’mores on the firepit. Local wine varietals and brews are available at close by stores for the 21+ crowd too. Firewood and hard wood for cooking are available for purchase at local grocery stores, Ace and Walmart; complimentary wood is not supplied at this time, as wet wood will not fire/light.
Out on the back deck are the calming sounds of the fountain coupled with a cedar bench and planter full of fresh herbs for your cooking enjoyment. A stainless grille is on the back deck and ready to make your next lunch or dinner!
Inside the kitchen we have an Instant Pot, Ninja Blender and Bread Machine. The bread machine can be set on a timer to make and bake so you can wake to the enticing aroma of freshly baked bread. Sourdough boxed mix and additional bread flower and yeast are supplied along with a recipe book. Nothing like fresh sourdough paired with the local catch on a coastal evening, or paired with some traditional local chowder.
Some of the kitchen appliances are a little older, but American made and still going strong. Nearly any spice or cookware item you’d wish to use while cooking is probably supplied in this kitchen, as we appreciate to prepare and try new local recipes! Stainless pans, pots and cookware. In the summer the Ninja hooks us up with exhilarating smoothies after visiting the close by farmers markets and in the fall and winter we find ourselves making soup with the Instant Pot and Ninja which saves time and money to spend on the fun stuff while traveling. A Keurig, k-cups, tea, sugar, honey and creamer are supplied.
In the master bedroom is a King size bed and attached bathroom with huge shower. Plush bath towels (XXL bath sheets), hand towels and wash clothes are supplied two per each room. The other bedrooms are each Queen beds with a guest bathroom separating them (shower/tub unit). All linens are included, and everything is washed between guests, comforters/duvets and throw blankets too!
In the Laundry Nook you’ll find beach towels, and spa towels for the hot tub. Broom and dustpan, handheld broom and dustpan, handheld vacuum, detergent, wool dryer balls, first aid kit. A stand-up vacuum is in a guest room closet also.
In the living room you’ll find two plush couches that are additional soft and comfortable! Apple TV which you can login to your subscription channels, i.e., Netflix, Prime, Disney +, Hulu and more is ready for you. In addition a DVD player with DVD’s is ready for use, and a CD player with CDs. Board games, books, an electric fireplace and cozy throw blankets make the space ready to savor. The fireplace can be appreciated with or without heat.
Munchies are covered with complimentary snacks on-hand in the snack tower.
Beach access: A few mins. golf cart ride to the public beach accesses on Ocean Drive (which have golf cart parking too!) or a ~14 min. walk.
Parking: Plenty of parking with room to park a boat also.
Location: A tad inland on the Sound side of Emerald Isle, adjacent to park with dog-friendly trails, disc golf and kayak launch. Dining such as Gaffer’s and Lazzara’s Pizza and Subs, ice cream and candy are just around the corner. Water park, fuel and go-karts close by. The home is located in a forested/wooded part of the island. We adore all the cool wildlife we get to see and experience with this location that we otherwise wouldn’t see elsewhere on the island; it’s a special place.
Emerald Isle is full of so many fun things to do that it’s essential to have a peaceful place to recharge! We’re that place, cozy and welcoming on a peaceful street. Thank you for considering your next stay at The Chatty Dolphin!
