Sea Notes

Six-Bedroom Six full / Two half Bath Almost Oceanfront House in Emerald Isle

Near the Sea we forget to count the days… It will be easy to lose track of time when you stay in Sea Notes, a warm, fun, & effervescent Almost Oceanfront home. Sea Notes is a 6-bedroom home, with 6-full and 2-half-baths, and you won’t have to worry about trekking anything up and down the stairs because it has an Elevator that is available from the Ground Level all the way to the top. The minute, whimsical details and treatments this home extends are not to be missed, even down to the oval, nickle door knobs. And getting to the beach is easy! Beach access is directly across the street (see photo) but if you don’t want to spend all of your time at the beach, there is a gorgeous Pool and Hot Tub at your disposal. The first thing you will notice upon entering Sea Notes, and you’ll find abundant throughout this home, is the fanciful artwork, object d’art, and custom-painted furnishings. It is obvious that great care was taken to insure that each room resonates a theme. When you enter Sea Notes, at Ground Level, the first rooms you see are the bright and fun Media and Game Rooms. The Media Room is decorated in lively primary colors and furnished with a Cherry, suede-like sectional and over-sized, Denim blue chair. The walls are full of sea life, from the entertaining musical frogs to the brilliantly colored fish making their way through sea reeds. Next door is the Game Room – in the middle of the Game Room sits a Fire Engine Red Pool Table, and is cornered by a deep blue-tiled Kitchenette, with a Microwave and Refrigerator. Next to the Pool Table is a charming, hand-crafted bench that was created by a local wood worker. It has an Ocean Wave-styled back and large blue fish armrests, perfect for a home at the beach! Navigate over to the spirited sailboats and stripes-themed bedroom, located next to the Media Room, with a Double Twin Bunk Set and a Twin Bunk Set…it is a perfect place for the kids. The adjoining bathroom is complimentary with it’s brightly painted walls and marine-themed decorations and the kayak paddle towel bar is a perfect touch! Even the stairways are delightful! Both of the stairways are brightly painted, and are full of marine-themed knick-knacks and furnishings, and the first stairway is even painted with a lovely marine life mural! You’ll love to wake up in the "Tequila Sunrise" Bedroom! The "Tequila Sunrise" Bedroom is located on Level One and is situated with a King bed, with a large bamboo headboard shaped into a gorgeous sunrise and "Tequila Sunrise" lyrics painted on both sides! The sunny Melon walls in this bedroom are a sublime backdrop to the deco-style, hand-painted furniture and cheery, colorful bed coverings. The connecting bathroom has a Jacuzzi bathtub, private toilet and an etched glass stand-up shower, with a complimentary rising sun backdrop over the lavatories. On the way to the 2nd bedroom, on Level One, there is so much to take-in as you walk through the delightful "marine life" hallway and over the over-sized and brightly colored fish-shaped area rug! In the 2nd bedroom, the "Summer Time" room, there is a King bed, and an abundance of eclectic art adorning the walls. The furnishings have a tropical, Indonesian-inspired feel and are a great match for the bamboo and additional treatments found throughout the room. The full-bath, in this room, is unusually bright and "beachy," with fish spouting air bubbles from the Melon walls. The "Bali Hai" bedroom, also on Level One, is named for the famous and fabulous musical "Bali Hai." The sheet music to "Bali Hai" is framed and hung against deep Salmon walls. Also making this bedroom special are the other tropically-inspired treatments, such as, the Raffia Hula bedskirt on the King bed, which is also drapped with romantic mosquito netting over the top of the bamboo headboard, the Raffia Hula skirt shower curtain in the bathroom, and Indonesian-inspired object d’art. The kids will be crazy about the "Surfin’ Safari" bedroom! "Surfin’ Safari" is also on Level One allowing the kids easy access to the adults on the trip. The Twin and Double/Twin Bunk Sets are bedecked with lively striped bedcoverings which are made even brighter against the Tangerine walls. The Surfboard mirror and Surfboard handles, a unique addition to the chest of drawers, match perfectly with the beachy scenes found in the adjoining full-bath. This room is so kidcentric there are even colorful footstools at the lavatories! The bedroom on Level Two is absolutely bright & lovely! On the stunning hardwood floor sits a King bed which is adorned with delightful designer bedcoverings in Persimmon, Melon & Butterscotch, against Antique White head and foot boards. The adjoining full-bath has a Jacuzzi Tub, private water closet, and separate glass shower. The real highlight of this room, and a tribute to the Island, are the lovely murals decorating the walls…one of a lovely mermaid swimming with a small school of fish and the other, doves carrying a flowing banner over the bed that reads, "I have never felt so free as when I’m listening to the Song of the Sea."
