This year, many people around the country are opting to stay home and minimize outside contact to remain safe and healthy. And as remote working and distance learning becomes more prevalent, many families and young professionals find themselves wanting to take a break from the day-to-day routine at home. With many school districts and offices operating fully remote in the fall, now is a great time to get in that beach state-of-mind and transition your work, school and life balance to Emerald Isle for an unforgettable experience.
Whether it’s a couple of days or a few weeks, Emerald Isle Realty has a wide variety of rental options that provide the perfect opportunity for families and young professionals to work and learn remotely while living their best life.
The Best Way to Work and Learn from Home
With more work lives transitioning to home offices and some schools opting for a virtual learning experience, a lot of us will be spending more time at home during fall and winter months. However, this doesn’t mean you have to put your vacation plans on hold! Almost all of our rental properties have wireless high-speed Internet available, so you can take your work and learning with you while you visit Emerald Isle. And with plenty of space throughout our properties, you can set up shop with exquisite ocean views from living rooms, dining rooms, recreational rooms, or even a deck or balcony. If you’re up for it, working and learning directly on the beach or by the pool are a few ways to elevate your experience while on the clock and keep you in that beach state-of-mind. We also have some fun resources for the kids to keep them entertained and engaged with beach-themed activities, crafts and puzzles.
Working from a new location can help in more ways than just getting the job or schoolwork done. Changing up your working and learning environments can help free your mind so you can accomplish more, reset creative blocks and can even spark inspiration for new projects or ways to accomplish difficult tasks. And depending on your work situation, you can also save your hard-earned vacation time while working remotely in a place where you would typically vacation. That sounds like a win-win to us and makes scheduling a long visit even that more tempting.
Why Vacation Rentals?
Combining efforts to keep our properties sanitized while offering a great vacation experience makes choosing a rental property in Emerald Isle a no-brainer. Social distancing, or as we like to call it, “Coastal Distancing,” recommends staying six feet away from others, regular handwashing and wearing face masks when it’s difficult to social distance. Staying at your own private vacation rental means you can stay as safe as you are in the comfort of your primary home.
Our check-in process is low-contact from start to end, and our enhanced cleaning procedures keep rental properties safe and healthy for guests to visit. Amenities like private pools, hot tubs, grills and many more means you can still have the amenities that you’re used to back at home while also enjoying some new ones conveniently from your rental.
Your fully outfitted kitchen in your rental property and local grocery stores with curbside pickup also means you can minimize your contact risk by preparing and eating your own meals at home. Don’t fret, many of the local restaurants are still offering take-out options, so you won’t miss out enjoy some of your favorite Emerald Isle meals.
Work Hard. Play Harder!
After the workday is over, start the best part of your day! The number of things to do during your stay is endless, and everyone on your trip will find great ways to spend their downtime. If you’re the relaxing type, take some time after work to enjoy the waves roll along the shore from a patio or balcony to make any stress disappear almost instantly. Curling up with a good book or getting lost in a movie or TV show while lounging in an inviting living room with ocean views are great options as well.
For the more outdoorsy types, there are still plenty of sports and activities you can do safely while coastal distancing like paddle boarding, kayaking, fishing and shelling. The beach is still open for many of these watersports and who wouldn’t want to cast their line in the water to enjoy some post-workday fishing? It’s almost like you’re catching happy hour!
For your younger guests who have just wrapped up their day of school and homework, of course, reward them with a fun afternoon at your private pool or game room. Social-distance-friendly activities like shelling, hiking and wildlife spotting are also great ideas for kids to do and offer additional learning opportunities they wouldn’t get from online learning.
At the end of the day, take a walk on the beach to enjoy a front-row view of the sunset or soak in your private hot tub. These options are great ways to help you wake up feeling refreshed and ready to tackle tomorrow’s workday or school day.
