Featured Property: A Gritty Palace

When you think of Emerald Isle and its surrounding towns you think pristine beaches, emerald water & gorgeously appointed homes. The Pine Knoll Shores area certainly contains an abundance of each of these luxuries. You can take in panoramic ocean views of the Atlantic or enjoy a round of golf at one of the local courses. There is so much to do on the Crystal Coast that you may not ever want to leave. If a week of beachfront luxury sounds like a dream, we have the perfect spot for you and your family.

A Gritty Palace is a breathtaking oceanfront cottage situated in the Pine Knoll Shores community. This home can simply be described as a small piece of heaven on earth. The property has been professionally landscaped and no detail has been left untouched. You and your guests will enjoy both covered and open decks that are fully furnished. After a fun day on the beach, you can rinse off in your private outside shower. Most importantly, there is a fantastic oceanfront deck that you can take in one of the many gorgeous crystal coast sunsets.

This oceanfront vacation rental has 5 bedrooms and 4 ½ bathrooms. In full palace fashion, there are three master suites in this home. Each of the suites comes with a king size bed and Jacuzzi tub. One of the suites is located on the top floor with an oceanfront deck to enjoy. Even with a home this large, you won’t have to worry about climbing flights of stairs. A Gritty Palace is nicely equipped with an elevator that goes to all levels.

All of the bedrooms are fully equipped with flat screen TV’s and have Sand Castle Club linen service. Only the best for our Emerald Isle Realty vacation rental clients. In addition, there is a bonus room on the top level of the home that includes a flat screen TV and a queen sized sleeper sofa. Perfect for a kid play area, or great as a reading nook to take in the amazing beach views.

The living room of this cottage is masterfully decorated to set the tone for your beach getaway. Small touches of beach life throughout the home create the ideal backdrop for the memories you will keep with you for a lifetime. A large leather wrap-around sofa is begging to be lounged on – an ideal spot for spending quality time with your friends and family.

You and your family can take vacationing to the next level by enjoying the wet bar right off the living room. Since A Gritty Palace is an open floor plan your guests can lounge in the living room while you prepare lunch in the gourmet kitchen. You will definitely want to entertain while you are here, because this oceanfront cottage is perfect for parties. With 2 refrigerators you will be able to store your platters and chill as much wine as you desire with the two-zone wine cooler.

Wanting to take in sounds of the ocean without the sand? You have it made with this cottage. One of our favorite amenities of this home is the private, oceanfront swimming pool. When you decide to wind down for the evening you will love slipping into your very own oceanfront hot tub. Grab a glass of wine, sit back and relax and enjoy the sounds of crashing waves right off your deck.

The beauty of this vacation rental is you have unfettered access to ocean views, including unrestricted ones of Atlantic Beach. Don’t forget your binoculars or your golf clubs! Cape Lookout Lighthouse is just off in the distance and nearby courses like Morehead City Country Club, North River and Country Club of the Crystal Coast are just a short putt away.

“Elevator and the pool were needed amenities for us older ones. Everyone felt that this place was like a home away from home.”
-A FlipKey verified reviewer

“We loved out stay in this house. It accommodated multiple generations easily. It was clean and well-appointed. I liked the layout of the house-It wasn’t too hard to get from one area of the house to another, but there was still plenty of privacy. The pool and hot tub were very nice. I liked how close it was to Atlantic Beach. My favorite thing about the house was the 180-degree view of the ocean from the living room—truly wonderful.”
