Breathtaking sunrises and stunning sunsets are always a site to see during a stay along the Crystal Coast. However, the crisp ocean breezes carried in from the Atlantic Ocean take it from just a great view to an unforgettable experience. With ocean breezes so ingrained in the coastal atmosphere, this week’s featured property is named after them.
Madeira Breeze is a three bedroom, two-bathroom oceanfront cottage that sits along the main stretch of Emerald Isle and is the perfect size for small family vacations or a friends’ getaway. Be sure to check out more photos of this unique beachfront retreat and get ready to start planning your next vacation.
Combining North Carolina beach simplicity with a southern antique aesthetic makes up Madeira Breeze’s captivating appeal. Original shiplap walls are accented with white wood shutters and dark wood-planked tiles throughout the home, which provides a warm and charming touch.
The traditional floorplan starts in the living room and flows into an open area that combines the kitchen and dining spaces.
Plush couches and armchairs enclose the living room with finely-curated decorations, including an ornate large throw rug that maps out the room. An antique chest acts as the room’s entertainment center and is the focal point for the wall-mounted HDTV.
Flowing into the dining area, which has plenty of natural lighting from the shuttered windows, a chandelier hangs over the dining room table that has seating for six. A large antique dish cabinet adds to the home’s theme and other coastal pieces blend perfectly for an “at-home” feel.
White cabinets with granite countertops make up the large spacious kitchen, which has stainless steel appliances, including a large refrigerator. A countertop bar also has seating for three with an old-fashioned bar-cart in arms reach. And plenty of counter space means more room for releasing your inner chef and cooking up meals for your group. Madeira Breeze’s charm doesn’t end here as the outside covered patio includes beautifully appointed wicker furniture that is perfect for taking in those breathtaking views and pleasant ocean breeze. An outdoor couch facing the coast is also great for morning coffee and catching the gorgeous Emerald Isle sunrises.
On the other side of the patio is a large picnic table for outdoor meals. Across the dunes is Madeira Breeze’s private boardwalk that gives you direct access to the beach. Along the way, you’ll find several spots with lounge seating or Carolina rockers that are great for setting up camp for a beach day.
The master bedroom, which has a king size bed, continues with the home’s beautifully decorated theme as shiplap walls and eccentric furniture pieces pull the room together. This room also has a wall-mounted HDTV that’s great for catching a flick before bedtime.
Another bedroom also has a king-sized bed and a large Bahama-shuttered window that will gently greet you in the morning with natural light. The last room features a four-post queen-sized bed with the same large windows that open up the room.
The two bathrooms, one attached to the master bedroom, have spacious showers and are decorated with ornate nautical artwork and gold chandeliers.
